Sunday, March 9 - my Gold membership expired yesterday. Today, the code for three months of Gold worked! So did another code I'd bought for an additional year of Gold. However, the codes for the free games still won't work. I've replied to the email yet again, so we'll see if they make good.
If this lasts another 8 days, it'll be a full 3 months since this began.
Pac Man World 2 has become my "I have 15 minutes to play video games" choice recently. I picked it up for $17.99 for the cube off of ebgames.com - but the greatest hits is only $19.99 at most places for the PS2.
