    I had amazing experience with amazon, got a DOA 60" TV, returned it without any hassles. amazon also has 3% cashback with their CC.. ends up being only $270 shipped going to give time for pros here and review sites to evaluate it before going forward. Newegg will have it within a week.

    World of Tanks MMO

    Still wondering where the MMO is.. I get the RPG side, where you can customize your tank. Waiting and waiting some more for new maps, gametypes, and american TDs. Its a good filler game... reminds me of COD UO with base assault gametype minus soldiers and jeeps

    Should I start with Civ V?

    Not overally impressed with civ V, Civ IV was epic in complexity and longetivity of games. Both good games in who their ment to target. Think of it as chest vs checkers games, it is what it is.
