Never ordered from them before.  How is their shipping quality?  How do they ship out single games or blu-ray singles.  When do they upgrade to using a box, etc.

In my experience they only use bubble mailers for small game, CD or movie orders, though that's not any different than Best Buy or Amazon.  That said I've never gotten anything damaged from them.  Plus they have great customer service so I imagine a replacement would be pretty easy if it came damaged.

Looking at bullmoose, are their pre owned games usually complete?

I've never seen a game without the case and insert in the store.  The reason is, if you try to trade in disc only at Bullmoose they only give you like 1 cent no matter what it is, so no one trades in there if they only have the disc.  So the odds are really low for you to come across disc only for any of their physical media.

Cool, gives me a bit more confidence in buying some games, thanks.

Thanks. I'll give them a try next time amazon is out of something I want.

You know, when I remember when I first checked it I saw that. Then at the end I thought "I should check PS Blog just in case." and it said Digital Only there, so that's what I recorded. That's what I get for doing it past the time I normally go to sleep.

Who does Samael's voice in The Lost child? I like it.

 

And I'm really excited for the new sonic racing game. They're so much better than mario kart.

 

And shenmue... well, it does look better at the very least but I just have a bad feeling about the game.

Then you should know that Steam/Valve sent out mails to those who received it saying they'll re-review each game. Not sure if everybody who received the original notice got one or not.

At least four developers/publishers did (Huniepot, Lupiesoft, Mangagamer and NekoWorks).

This is one of those things that started off great in my head, but then sort of fell apart during the image search. Anyway, here's Anime Garfield because he also hates Mondays.

Neko Works actually got the notice for Tropical Liquor (even though Steam says it's published by Sekai).  Not sure who owns what really.

 

And it's not a horrible game, it's just not exactly worth the $10 it costs.  At $5 or less it's okay though.

I like Persona 4 just as much as anyone... but shit, can't they let it rest? I thought Dancing All Night was supposed to be the end of it.

I don't know why Persona 4 gets milked so much. It's not even as good as Persona 3.


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.
