#11955382 Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two - Nintendo Wii $3.99 @Best Buy

Posted by romeogbs19 on 25 July 2014 - 03:52 PM

Not even worth $4.  And that's saying something.




#11758268 XBox One Console - $399 (Available 6/9)

Posted by romeogbs19 on 15 May 2014 - 12:11 AM

Stop with the whole one console is better than the other garbage.  It's so ridiculous to see these sorts of arguments still going on.  Everyone wins when there are multiple players in the market.  Sony drives MS to rethink their decisions just as MS forced Sony to change how the PS4 was built when compared to the bloated, overpriced starting price of the PS3.  At the end of the day, both consoles are going to feed off each other to give us great and better games.  We should want both, and Nintendo, to find success in this market. 

 

I for one very much prefer the Xbox controller and enjoy Halo.  I also love Naughty Dog and look forward to the next Last of Us.  And of course, I can never get enough Zelda love. 

 

I am pleased MS made this move.  It probably does mean the Kinect's lifeline will be spare and dry, but it's the right move for the gamers.  Hope this helps MS close the gap with Sony, and likewise, hope this means Sony doesn't get ahead of itself thinking it has this gen in the bag.

Thanks OP.   Don't pay any attention to the whiners, they're spoiled CAG children.

Best price I've seen for this edition which is the best transfer of the classic Arnie flick.

BBY also has a B1G1 on $10 blus which effectively makes them $5 each.  Some really good titles in that group, including Attack the Block -- I really like that movie. :-) Highly recommended.

Wanting the company to do better is one thing. Going out of your way to bash someone else's decision because it was different is asinine and petty, and a tad insecure. If I like Pepsi, I'm not smacking people's Cokes outta their hand. 

Applause for this statement.   Agree with you 100%, man -- fanboys always make me laugh.




#11259304 Gears of War: Judgment - Amazon - $20

Posted by romeogbs19 on 20 November 2013 - 01:56 PM

This game was horrible,not even worth 99 cents IMO

Oh come on; sure, it's not as good as Gears 2 or 3, but it's far from terrible.  You want terrible - play Neverdead.  The core Gears mechanics are still there; I don't like flashback storylines, but the epilogue is pretty cool.  And the graphics -- well -- they're still excellent.  Some awesome event pieces, too (though fewer I think compared to Gears 2/3).  The problem here is the same one Sony has with the other GOW (God of War) in Ascension.  The story is essentially told and done, so trying to tie something in without harming the already excellent and fitting end feels just like an add-on or cashing-in, which this is.  But so are so many other franchise leftovers.  

Bottomline, if you like and enjoy Gears, then you'll have plenty of fun with this and at $20, there are plenty of worse games you can buy and spend your precious time with.

I don't need to convince myself of anything. I won't be partaking in any such acts as I'm not even getting an Xbox One. I just used that as an example because I see people crying fraud all over the place, but absolutely no harm is done whatsoever. Once someone explains to me what harm is done to Walmart, perhaps I'll concede, but people acting as if they operate with a higher sense of moral superiority are extremely annoying.

 

And this, fellow CAGers, is why the United States is going to s#!t.

 

By the same logic, why bother trying to be better than the lowest scum, when we can be the scum, too.  This guy probably looks at how Wall Street screwed over taxpayers and marvels at how awesome they are, rather than thinking we need to be better people to have a better world.  When we start thinking like my little lie/act doesn't matter in the grand scheme, then fact is we all will start doing it, and it's a fast ride to the bottom.

 

Well, at least he acts like his username ... sad.

I found it:

Looks legit. Now I'm a believer. 

 

Thank you for being an ass, and excuse me for not believing EVERYTHING I read on the Internet. Twit.

 

Dude, calm down.  You've been harassing everybody about this.  Getting an ad a week ahead is something CAG insiders here do all the time.  I get that you don't trust everything on the Internet, but there's a HUGE difference between reading some crap on a blog and being on a videogame sales site with employees who are giving us the advance sneak peek.

 

Also, the general rule on CAG is that we don't post advance ads.  This has been enforced by moderators, especially after legal issues arose and other CAG posters got in trouble with their employers for trying to help out other CAGers here.

 

You're not entitled to call anyone a twit.  Look the word up; if anything, we should be calling you that.

Posted by romeogbs19 on 08 November 2013 - 12:58 AM

This is actually not that great a deal.

 

The ultimate edition -- similar to Mortal Kombat -- with all the DLC on-disc is coming in a few weeks; this is just BBY trying to unload the vanilla edition before the new one comes out.  I'll wait until the ultimate edition hits 19.99 which will happen sooner rather than later, especially with the next-gen hitting store shelves.  Even MK Ult. hit $20 just a few months after it hit.

Posted by romeogbs19 on 10 September 2013 - 02:23 AM

No offense, but I hate when I see this thread bumped up.  It gives me false hope that MS will actually restock any of these games.  Frustration is only worsened when I keep seeing MS store ads highlighting OOS games that I had been looking at :-P




#10997663 GameStop: Buy 3 for $10 Preowned Game Sale - Starts 8/19, Ends CoB 9/8

Posted by romeogbs19 on 20 August 2013 - 02:28 AM

Grabbed:

Infinite Undiscovery
The Last Remnant
FEAR PS3

All were complete in good shape. When I checked out the worker grabbed the cases with the discs that had funky cases and artwork. I politely asked him to exchange them for the cases I originally had and he did with no problem. Not a bad haul.

 

While the prices are good, just a warning that those are two horrible JRPGs.  Man, I remember playing the IU and wondering how on earth Square-Enix let this come out.  I thought perhaps they'd clean it up for PS3, but then again, it was beyond saving.  Last Remnant, funnily enough, is a fitting title to a game that felt like it was pieced together from remnants of existing unused material.

 

Generally good looking games, but outside of that, nothing much.  I won't say much about the storylines -- just try to really lower your expectations.

So you are fine with people being screwed out of their money just so that the arguments stop? You've got some issues. But then again, you always treat people with scorn and ridicule and treat the companies like they are saints, so how can I be surprised?

 

Ummm... No, you're missing the point entirely.  Listen, I hate paying taxes as much as the next guy, but companies like Amazon basically screwed over your local B&M companies and community businesses by taking money away from your State, doing business in your State, and NEVER having to give back to the State in terms of taxes and revenue.

 

It's not the only reason why our state governments are struggling, schools have no money, and many social service programs like childcare and services for the poor are feeling the pinch, but it's a BIG reason.

 

You might think companies like Amazon are doing you a favor, but in the end, they're no different and quite possibly worse than Walmart in that they operate to take money and never invest in the city and community YOU live in.




#7161788 xbox games worth getting

Posted by romeogbs19 on 29 June 2010 - 02:28 PM

Satoshi_Matrix gave a nice list. I don't agree with him on all those titles (IMHO, Dreamfall was horrible, so was KoF Neowave, Malice and XIII), but they are arguably playable games. Here is my "shortlist" of the best of the original XBOX. Note I've added cross platform titles here as well.

007 Everything or Nothing
Bard's Tale
Black
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Burnout 3 Takedown
Dead or Alive Ultimate
Deux Ex Invisible War
Fatal Frame 1 and 2
Freedom Fighters
Galleon [A long-dead DC title resurrected on XBOX -- has its flaws, but still worth a playthrough]
Indiana Jones: Emperor's Tomb
Jade Empire [Surprised Satoshi_Matrix didn't include this one]
Maximum Chase [Very cheap, and simply awesome for the camp factor -- you'll see what I mean]
Mercenaries
Metal Arms: Glitch in the System [Next to Psychonauts, most underrated game ever]
Midnight Club 3 DUB Remix
Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks [MK games are not my thing, but this classic Double Dragon take is fun-fun]
Need for Speed: Most Wanted [Also on the 360]
Ninja Gaiden [Actually prefer the original over Black; the original also has the NES trilogy on it]
Otogi 1 and 2
Panzer Dragoon Orta
Prince of Persia 1, 2 and 3 [Excellent games on practically every level]
Psychonauts
Shenmue 2 [I would recommend the DC version over this one]
Sid Meier's Pirates!
Simpsons Hit & Run [Remains the best Simpsons game ever made]
SSX 3 [The pinnacle of the series]
Star Wars KOTOR 1 and 2 [You know, I never really fell in love with these; I think Jade Empire is better, but these games won so many awards so who I am to quibble?]
Still Life [Incomplete but one of the most atmospheric games made]
Thief: Deadly Shadows
