#11943442 Buy 1 Get 1 Free Select 1st Party Nintendo 3DS Games, $30 Wii U Pro Cont...

Posted by midloo on 21 July 2014 - 07:23 PM

Both games I want are only available for store pickup?! WTF is that?  And both are unavailable at my local store. 

 

EPIC FAIL again from Worst Buy.  Combine that with the fact that I've had EVERY SINGLE ONLINE PREORDER CANCELED (that's 16 orders!) by them due to completely fake "billing errors" and I wouldn't pay $6 for my GamersClub Unlocked membership if I had to do it again, let lone $60.

 

I have never, ever seen a company who didn't want my money as much as Worst Buy doesn't.

 

And let's not forget the one time they shipped half my online order to an OLD address, for no reason whatsoever. Or the completely clueless cashiers who act like they don't give $%! about you.

 

This is the most poorly managed and run company in the HISTORY of retail.

Couldn't disagree more.  I used to spend most of my entertainment budget on Amazon. Over the last two years, I've shifted most of my spending to Best Buy.  Sure there have been some hiccups, but there were with Amazon as well and BB customer service has been GREAT to me.  Always helpful and quick to find a good resolution to an issue.  I've been an Elite Plus/Silver Reward tier shopper for 3 years.  I think the changes to GCU have been fantastic.  I've purchased many more new games than I would have.  




#11931001 Best Buy-Injustice: Gods Among Us Collectors Edition (360/PS3)-$30

Posted by midloo on 17 July 2014 - 02:37 AM

honestly i'd only buy this if you wanted to collect it for whatever reason. i have no doubt that the ultimate edition will hit 20$ pretty soon and to be honest this isnt like its gonna retain its value or get any more valuable in the future.

 

That price for the statue isn't bad though.  You could trade the game back in and get it for less than $20 with GCU.

EVERY gamer who cares about preserving our industry as we know it and keeping off "free" games that you can never fully purchase or "pay to win" games needs to support Kairosoft...  Because with this company once you buy the game you BOUGHT THE GAME.  No further pestering for purchases that make building go faster, no purchases for extra characters or the best buildings/people, etc etc.  Once you buy it, it actually plays like a REAL GAME.

 

I'd more than gladly pay around $5 for more games if they followed this model...

 

I think it's kind of sad that regardless of all you've said, Kairosoft still makes some pretty shallow Skinner-box style games.  Addicting?  Sure...  Compelling?  Maybe...  fun and interesting choices to make?  Not really. 

 

People have very low expectations on mobile.

Or you can go to the other thread and print it.

 

Man...  Twitter has been doing his thing on here for years.  Whether you appreciate that thing or not is a matter of personal taste, but It's amusing to see when someone still takes him seriously. 




#11822152 64gb vita memory cards available at GameStop $116.99

Posted by midloo on 07 June 2014 - 06:42 PM

Kind of silly how so many people whine about the memory card prices on the Vita.  I personally have no problem with them, since I would rather not see the Vita hacked (and therefore stop getting games).  The PSP was hacked due to its standard memory card format, and that hurt its overall lifespan (and it was a fantastic little handheld for its time, I still own a bunch of them, all models). 

 

I have one 32gb card in each of my two Vita systems, and on my main system I now have about 90 games on the card.  Admittedly I have a good mix of games, including many PSP titles, but I felt that the cards were well worth the price.  Its just a one-time, small additional cost for the system that benefits you for a long time into the future, so its no big deal.  And honestly if you can't afford a memory card for the Vita, you probably can't afford the Vita either, might as well stick with a 3DS, which is much cheaper hardware.

 

Careful.  If Sony hands you a glass of Kool Aid some day, you might want to pause before guzzling it all down. 




#11816925 Wii U Pro Controller $39.99 with free super saving shipping - Amazon

Would probably go good with the $5 off as well.

What's the $5 off thing? 

 

(I'm also a Ting user.  It's great!)




#11816110 1001 Spikes 3DS currently $10.01 on 3DS eShop $15 MSRP

Posted by midloo on 05 June 2014 - 01:09 PM

I grabbed this on the Wii U. Same price $10.01

 

*I also have it for Xbox 360 as midloo stated...from the trailer the showed and the updates I am hoping its worth the price on Wii U. I heard it supports 2- Player co-op which is cool and they added a slew of new characters and levels. 

Sounds worth the price of admission to me, though I see it's going to be released across a bunch of platforms.  As much as I love my 3DS/Wii U, I might have to pick this one up on VITA.

Don't suppose anyone got a copy of MK8 early and went through the free game redeeming process? I'm trying to figure out if you get the download code immediately after filling out the survey or if you have to wait. Trying to figure out the timing for a trade. 

Unbelievably to me, I can answer 'yes'.  I was about to post about my experience in case it would help other CAGs.  

 

Best Buy sent me an email saying my order was ready to pickup. I was surprised, but went to the store and it was there waiting for me.  This is the part that's a little shady.  When I went to club.nintendo to put in the pin number for MK8, a popup came up asking me to select my free game.  I chose one and went through the entire redemption process and received a confirmation page.  Then I entered "club.nintendo.com" back into the URL field and when the page refreshed, I was presented with the same popup saying I qualified for a free game and was prompted to chose one...  so I chose a different one.  

 

I was able to repeat this process and receive a code for all of the games on offer.  

 

I was using Chrome.  I'm not sure if this glitch will last until tomorrow when the game officially launches, but I would certainly enter you PIN for MK8 as soon as possible into club.nintendo.com if you are interested. 

 

Also - I never get this lucky, so I am bragging a little.  Sorry :(

I thought the same but it really isn't... Luckily I only rented it. Game play lags and freezes and there were a couple instances where my character wouldn't move at all. Also slow load times. At least that's my experience with it....


anyone have an opinion on :wiiu: Wipeout?

 

How much do you hate your free time?  If you completely disrespect it, spend some of it playing Wipeout.

Posted by midloo on 27 May 2014 - 02:17 PM

I bought it on release day. Played it a day later. By Saturday, I had 1000/1000 achievements. No Multiplayer or DLC plans, so I traded it in. I know a lot of people hate multiplayer, but now I realize the value of it. Yeah these single player campaign games scratch an itch a lot of us feel, but once you scratch that shit....whats left? I would have loved to jump online and blow other humans heads and limbs off into meaty chunks with dual-wielding shotguns. But oh well. Once you get all the acheivements and beat the game, thats it. Nothing.

 

to answer your question, YES its worth playing, for sure. Violent, funny, scary (not in a conventional horror way, just the entire what-if scenario the game takes place in), and its even a little moving at times. The facial animations are really amazing in this game, adds more life to the characters. But the weaponry is the real star of the show here. I blew some Nazi's leg off and chunks off flesh flew everywhere. He hopped up and down on his one good leg while screaming in abject agony, and then I proceeded to remove his head from his body. Fun stuff.

 

Then I think you played a hell of a lot of the game and got your money's worth out of it in one week.  

 

I played for about 15 hours, had a blast, and had 70% of the achievements when I traded it in yesterday.  I'd personally take a tightly crafted single player campaign with a solid story for 15 hours over hundreds of hours of zoned out multiplayer FPS gaming any day.  It's a great experience and well worth the full asking price at release IMO.  There are comparatively few experiences like this today.  There are many multiplayer shooter Skinner boxes out there.  

 

Each to their own, but I think gamers should think about what "value" means to them.  It isn't just time spent on a game.  I don't go to the theater and think, "Geez...  I really liked this move, but it was only 90 minutes long!  If it could have been another hour longer like one of the Lord of the Rings movies, I would have felt better about spending the money."
