Selling “Sally”; Embracing the One

My gaming has consisted of solving a murder in Murdered Soul Suspect and attempting to stop Ganondorf in Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Sadly as I have gotten older, it’s much more difficult to play video games. I try my best to cram in 30 minutes for gaming on my 3DS, but working longer hours to pay bills gets in the way. Besides bills, moving home has made me busy along with organizing the boyfriend’s belongings. He moved home with me because he accepted a job in the Minneapolis area. The boyfriend is a huge gamer so he has his own Xbox 360 and Xbox One which means I didn’t need my thick white Xbox 360 *nicknamed Sally* from 2008. I had two options: I could keep my 360 because it does hold a lot of great gaming memories or I could sell it. I hate clutter, so I made the choice of selling my Xbox 360 to game stop.

Sally provided endless entertainment including online battles in Halo 3, exploring Rapture in Bioshock and fight the joker in Batman Arkham Asylum. I don’t regret selling my 360 because I genuinely didn’t need it anymore. I will never forget the excitement I had Christmas 2007 when I unwrapped the Xbox 360. I wanted this console so bad and my mom made comments about how expensive it was. Sure enough, it was the last present I opened. Thanks Sally for all the memories, but I am ready to accept the Xbox One.

Game Stop totaled the worth of my Xbox and I had $69 dollars store credit to spend. Check out my game stop haul:

Breath of Wild Poster

This poster is breathtaking! I actually got this for free because the Gamestop employee found it in the back and gave it to me. I plan on buying a frame for it and hanging it in my future apartment.

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M

Code Name Project Steam

This game features the voice work of Wil Wheaton and the art is inspired by comics what more could you want from a video game?

Deadpool

I don’t know how great this game will be, but it looks like Wolverine and Psylocke may appear at some point so I’m looking forward to that.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes

Lego games are underrated and usually keep me busy for a good chunk of time.

Life is Strange

My friend played this game on Steam and loved it. This means a lot since my friend typically isn’t a gamer, but her boyfriend let her play it. After Murdered Soul Suspect, this is the next game that’s going in the Xbox One.

Sonic Boom Fire & Ice

The last game I purchased is this Sonic game. I remember being a young kid watching my brother play a Sonic the Hedgehog PC game. I thought he was the coolest creature and I have a soft spot for any Sonic game.

De-cluttering can be stressful, but I have no regrets in selling my Xbox. I just need to get better at managing adult time with gaming.
