That very nearly makes me want a Vita. It's really not been selling well from what I hear though.

That looks reasonably fun, but also mildly annoying and subjective and sensitive to RL-context. I wouldn't want to have to do that screaming level in the middle of a train journey, and that console orientation looks specifically annoying for times when I'm just lazily lying on my side o:

So aye, looks fun, but I won't get a vita for it. Hell naw.

So, I have finally got into the stock market after talking about it for years. I figure I'll either get mildly rich or lose all my money and stop trading forever.

My first buy is in some TTWO (Take Two) stock about a week and a half ago which is going to release Borderlands 2 in a month and has started viral marketing for GTA V (a release around Christmas maybe?)

I have picked this stock because they have been investing constantly in GTA, borderlands was a hit title, and they have been getting pummeled each quarter due to releasing bad games.

I would like to pick your brains ...

Are you excited about borderlands 2? Have you preordered it?

Should I ditch my stocks now? should I ditch it before it hits the shelves? Should i ditch it after? Should I ditch it when news for GTA is released?

Should I sell all my shit now, give my money to the poor, and become a Buddhist monk? Or should I continue to attempt creating a small fortune from middle class 401k's?

Might work, as long as it's other people's 401k's and not yours. (If that's the case though, you should feel bad.)

I have considered actually using my own 401K as a gauge to see what stocks I should invest in.

The thing is brokerage firms will tend to use their own clients 401ks to line their coffers.

They can buy a bunch of stocks with their own money at a low price. Use their clients 401k money to make the price go up (buy buying into it) while they ditch their own stocks.

Then the price deflates after they have ditched their stocks.

So their clients lose money (sucks to be them) and they make a huge profit.

The thing is, most companies will match the amount you put into your 401k, so you basically get twice the amount of money to start off with. Makes it sort of worth it.

Hypothetically, if you see your 401k is tanking all the time, you could maybe use your own 401k as a gauge of which stock you should short.
