[Editor’s Note: We received this guest column in the mail the other day, in a crumpled envelope addressed only to “Videogames” and with no discernable return address. I don’t know how Dr. Brule found out where I live, but I thought it was only right to transcribe the letter for Internet reading. Enjoy!]

We all love video games. My favorite game has swords, uh, and knights — and you trade in your magic crystals to get a shield. The only problem with all of these games is that they’re so darn expensive! Well, thankfully ol’ Dr. Steve Brule is here to give you a few tips on how to save money on games.

"We're watching you, brah."

I step out of the car and into the warm, humid air. Right away I’m confronted with a barrage of new and interesting sights, sounds, and smells. In the distance I can see a building. I walk towards it, open up its large, heavy doors, and descend a flight of granite steps to the dark basement below. There I’m greeted by a man who asks me for my name, my place of origin, my room number and my birthsign…

“Oh my God,” I think to myself. “This is Morrowind.”

Obviously, it wasn’t Morrowind. Not really. It was my college orientation, and although the resident assistants didn’t really ask for my birthsign, the rest of the ordeal was eerily similar.

College! No parents!

College! No parents!

College is all about being social. Your number of phone contacts skyrockets, as does your Facebook friend count; routine activities such as eating, studying, and sleeping (high five!) are no longer done solo. Freshmen are terrified of being alone, even for five minutes—you start wondering, “What’s everyone else doing? I bet they’re doing something really fun. Why hasn’t anybody texted me?
