"Your payment has been declined. Please try again." I used a vanilla visa prepaid card and checked the balance, way above $10. Also, the expiration date is years from now. Can't order :-(


Fanatical is doing their "Bundle Blast" promotion now and one of the bundles they put up is pretty damn good:

https://www.fanatica...iller-bundle-12

Killer Bundle 12 - $3.99

Atari Vault
SNK 40th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter
THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV STEAM EDITION
The Surge
Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

I know a few of these have been bundled before, but I've never seen KOF XIV, SNK 20th Anniversary or Wonder Boy bundled before.

Wonder Boy and Sherlock have been in recent Twitch Prime Loot promos, but this is still a good bundle.

 

From Feb. 20 to 27, Assassin's Creed Syndicate will be given away on Epic Games Store.

*Reminder that Ubisoft games on Epic redeem on Uplay and don't subsequently require using Epic's launcher.*

 

Looks to be a good complement to my unplayed Unity copy from last year's Ubisoft giveaway. I would love to see a Watch_Dogs 2 giveaway in the future, but slim chance of it on Epic as it's already in the store. Little Inferno is the only exception that I can think of.

Did you register a shipping address with the card? Sometimes that is why they get declined.

Do you have a PayPal account?  I use prepaid debit cards on my PayPal to purchase Fanatical bundles all the time.  Just make the prepaid card your preferred form of payment on your account.

Man, that SNK 40th Anniversary Collection brings back some memories, both arcade and NES. Crystalis, Ikari Warriors series, and Street Smart bring back all kinds of old school memories.

I spent nearly $50 on Beast Busters at my local skating rink when I was roughly 13. Only $20 of it was money that I arrived with. Had to... "make" the rest, but I beat that game. #TurningTricksForTokens

Update on the Space Elite Force post I made...

 

Done with all cheesemos.  Total time 114 minutes (including an extra 20+ minutes replaying infinity mode).

 

I think there are 7 stages.

Hardcore mode just cuts health in half and you have to start from the beginning if you die.

Infinity mode is what it sounds like.  You can buy upgrades when you die.  It's fun, but either the game is crap at pulling enemy patterns or it just liked throwing a certain enemy set at me.  I didn't count, but it was the same group of enemies for at least a couple minutes.

I kept having slowdown issues where it seemed the game was freezing while loading a sound or something, but I don't see any complaints in the steam forums, so it was probably some weird bug on my system.  It's why I wound up dying during my final run of infinity mode.

 

Corrections.

There are two types of 2x powerups.  One for upgrade points and one for score.  There also a health powerup that restores some health.

The ship speed is fine.

There are some baby's first bullet hell patterns in earlier stages.

 

I still say not worth full price.  Unless you're super into shmups and/or getting highscores on leaderboards.

I have a paypal with the card and it seemed to work but after the transaction it took me back to fanatical saying payment provider refused this order. no idea why. i am able to normally make transactions and have over $30 on the card. oh well. thanks for the help, regardless.

Oh... fun story about SNK arcade machines.

 

It was my last real birthday party, I was in 2nd or 3rd grade.  I talked my mom to letting me have the party at the local arcade.  Sounded like a great idea, until only 3 people came... and to have a party at the arcade you had to buy $100-200 in tokens.  So I got to walk around the arcade with like, $50+ in tokens in my pockets and I just kept putting quarters tokens in a SNK Baseball Stars 2 for some reason.

 

Also, another fun arcade memory...

 

I was probably about maybe 7ish, with my older sister.  I was playing Goonies, or watching her play Goonies...  When some old man grabs me and drags me a few machines away.  He let me go though, so no full kidnapping.  :whee:

State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition is coming to Steam (and XBox) on Friday, March 13th, 2020:

As a fan of the first game, I found the sequel incredibly disappointing. It felt like 1.5 ... I really hope they launch a third game that significantly enhances what the first game did right.

Both Dishonored series & MachineGames' Wolfenstein Reboot series are awesome.

 

Glad to see these go DRM-FREE on GOG. Hopefully, these both get GOG Connect support with Steam, as I own these all on Steam - so I can be the happy toaster that could have them both on Steam and GOG. :)

 

Speaking of Wolfenstein, since it's in the XB for PC Game Pass, I need to play more of Youngblood; it's solid, so far.

Apropos of nothing, I never used to have an opinion about kazoos, but Facebook’s new YouTube ads have made me loathe them. I imagine I’ll have to fight the urge to punch anyone I see playing a kazoo for the rest of my life. Thanks for making my life that little bit less genial, Facebook, Google, you guys suck.

I thought there was nothing that would make me hate kazoos more than vuvuzelas. I was wrong.

Just accidentally erased the drive I had all my old Desura and Indie Royale shit (and a bunch of other stuff) archived on. Running data recovery now, but as an incurable packrat, I’m feeling a bit woozy.

Seagate was giving out a free recovery software in case that might help. Search on SD for it.

Thanks for the tip, though I was already able to grab a free tool that seems to be doing the job.

Yeah, just be careful - that's all.

 

But on another note - Grand Theft Auto IV and Episodes from Liberty City news:

Given what's happening with GTA4/EFLC on Steam, it might be a worthwhile discussion to back-up the old GTA4 base-game and GTA: EFLC folders before 3/19/2020.

 

GTA4/EFLC from Steam, as long as you have the files somewhere, they can be launched w/out Steam (like many G4WL-based games on Steam) - so, you might want to copy & rename those old folders somewhere else.

 

Looks like w/ the planned 3/19 Steam-update to move everyone to GTA4: Complete Edition...we're losing G4WL, Multiplayer (which was on G4WL), Leaderboards, and some Radio Stations (i.e. the EFLC stations) in an update:

https://steamcommuni...663794401897532

 

Also, looks like retail keys will activate up also to get the new GTA4: Complete version - not sure if that'll activate up on Steam, RSSC, or where though - but, I'm guessing RSSC activation.

Just wanted to share my happiness: Today I upgraded my 4mbps ADSL connection to a 300mbps (no cap) fiber connection. I already updated all my games and devices in a couple of hours and will try to install Division 2 on my X. I'm happy, too happy!  :D/
