I am in the minority here and believe the 2014 Godzilla movie was pretty decent. I'm certain it has something to do with the fact that I've watched about all of the sci-fi giant monster movies that was released by 'merica. So as others have mentioned, it is a lot better in comparison.

I didn't like the older king Kong movie with Jack black and Naomi watts either so I have high hopes for Kong.

2014 Godzilla is cool. 


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

For my 5th grade graduation party I was given a lot of 98 Godzilla movie merchandise presents.

Not to push the thread too much off-topic but I haven't watched too many, especially the older ones. But off the top of my head, I would say Cloverfield was my favorite, it was just so mysterious and realistic. I didn't like Pacific Rim much, nor Godzilla, nor the Jack Black King Kong reboot. 

 

Looking up an actual list, apparently Jurassic Park counts too, I guess that's my favorite. Tremors and Super 8 count as well apparently, and those were pretty great also.

Now here's a movie I thought was complete and utter garbage, where I had to force myself to finish watching it. It was the story of KK dragged out to 3 hours for God only knows what reasons? I guess to show special effects or something.

 

Luckily, I saw it as a rental at the time, but this would probably qualify for my top 10 list of worst movies I've seen.

Since you're all still talking about movies, I may as well mention that it looks like the rest of Little Witch Academia is on Netflix now. That should be everything there, making it all 25 episodes. Completely unrelated but probably still decently popular here is that Defenders, the next Marvel show on Netflix releases this Friday. It's eight episodes long, which is shorter than the typical 13 episodes of the other Marvel shows. Probably because Sigourney Weaver is in the show.

20XX has finally left early access on Steam. It's a roguelike action platformer that is in the style of a Mega Man X game. The game has full local and online co-op as well. Currently it's 20% off at $12. They have steadily raised the price from $8 when it originally released in early access to $10, then $12 and finally to the final price of $15 that it is now. With the current price point, $12 is the cheapest its been since it made that final jump about a year ago.

This looks pretty cool and would definitely pick it up if they made it available for consoles too. The addition of co-op for this type of action platformer is really interesting and would make for some good couch co-op play.

Might just wait for a steam sale if anything since I play on PC pretty rarely

Well, my replacement Sonic 25th Anniversary Art Book LE from Cook & Becker arrived today, and packaging was much better. Some how though, the book had dirty finger prints under the actual shrink wrap, so they for sure need to get it together for a book of this value. I'm guessing someone on their packaging line had rather dirty hands, which is a no no around items like this.

 

Since I sell things, removing the finger prints wasn't a big deal(as it's something I do on a regular basis), so on to the actually quality of the book. This is an amazing art book, and worthy of Sonic being 25. This book was delayed for a few months, as there where some quality issues the company didn't like, and had to have the run redone.

 

I really wanted the First4Figure Sonic 25th Statue, but that was a little out of my price range, but this was a rather good consolation prize. Very high quality, and a must for any Sonic fan, and just a nice art book in it's own right. This is for sure one of the nicer art books in my collection now. C&B offers just a plain version for a lot less, so for those on a budget, that should be good as well.

I saw this pointed out on IGN as well, but their link to information went to the Nier Automata deal instead.

Seems like Amazon Prime 20% off only applies to pre-orders now, with the 2 week post-release window no longer applying.

 

From the GAF thread, apparently this also happened in Canada and next it was reduced to 10% off. No solid evidence that'll happen, but everyone loves a reason to put on their tinfoil hat.

Just another reason to try to support Best Buy....  I am forced to use Amazon mainly for Vita pre-orders and Amazon unique stuff like that Korean horror game and Pqube stuff.

Yep thank goodness for Best Buy.  Amazon has gone to shit over the last few years.   They don't even have actual sales anymore and all they do is price match the other retailers. 

 

I even buy all of my hardcover strategy guides, blu rays, and the occasional new release anime from Best Buy now and just have them price match stuff to Amazon.

A weird vita item listed at $59.99 just popped up on Best Buy with the title "PSV-E3 Item 1 - PS Vita"

Release date listed as 10/24/2017 - that's the same date as Nights of Azure 2, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

I mainly collect Vita stuff on release (or for excited releases like Senran Kagura Boob Splash...I mean Peach Beach). Vita stuff other than the LRG stuff comes out relatively rarely, and I feel this might be the last year for having more releases. Just a gut feeling of course.

Guess if I want Peach Beach Splash, I better pre-order it from Amazon soon.

I'm getting it too, we should get some games together like we did for Injustice 2! 

 

I'm gonna get it from Gamestop though, it's not too expensive so I don't mind paying full price but skipping tax, so it's only $7/10% more than with GCU/Prime.

I have no idea. I started using discord recently too and don't even know how that works. There's a dead thread on CAG though if you want to use that.
