In Topic: Gamestop PS Vita sale - 32gb memory card 39.99, 16gb 19.99, uncharted 9.99, w...

02 December 2013 - 04:18 PM

Just chatted with an Amazon rep, they wouldn't price match but suggested I use the "I found a lower price" link at the bottom of the 32Gb mem card page.  I wonder if they won't price match the 32Gb because it's sold out on GS's site.

 

EDIT - looks like Amazon is no longer matching the mem card prices as the 16Gb is now $38.45.

It's not that they're no longer matching it. It's just OOS from them.


In Topic: FUNi Surveying Fans for DBZ Blu-rays

Kai other than the entrance and ending uses the exact same footage. no new animation are created. its just displayed at a different pace. its no more new than that 53 episode dub mentioned in previous postings that edits dbz. thats all Kai is another edit of DBZ. 

 

and was the music new? other than the intro and ending it all sounded the same from what i remember.

Actually, Kai's footage is a mix of both original footage remastered and digitally traced scenes (which stick out like a sore thumb). The music for Kai started out being entirely new but then switched to using the original soundtrack (though all of the original music was used or even in the right places - such as Cell saga music used in the Freeza saga).

 

All in all, the best way to put Kai is that it cuts out the fat of the original and the dub is everything the original dub SHOULD have been.

Basically, FUNi ended up biting off more than they could chew. They made a bold move to remaster the series, PROPERLY this time around and in HD, frame by frame. This meant not actually feeding it through a machine and calling it a day, but having people touch up a 291-episode series by every single frame.


In Topic: Best Buy: Justice League 14.99, Lois and Clark 9.99

Amazon also has Justice League S.1 on Blu-ray for $15.99: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0018TNMCA

 

Though Best Buy has S.2 for a much cheaper price than Amazon ($15.99 vs $39.99): http://www.bestbuy.c...eague&lp=8&cp=2

 

Can't for the life of me figure out why WB never put Justice League Unlimited on Blu-ray, but has it up on Netflix in HD.

I found tari tari to be subpar as far as slice of life and music anime goes :/

Compared to what, K-On? K-On is a better comedy and music anime, but Tari Tari is a better slice of life drama, imo. It was also considered popular in Japan.

 

Beck/Mongolian Chop Squad absolutely destroys both, imo.

As for the Sentai deal, yeah, Elfen Lied on Blu-ray's really the only decent deal, seeing as how Sentai's prices don't really drop during their weekly deals on RS.
