Bought :switch: Cave Story+ today at Walmart but found two different art covers for them. Wondering what is the difference between the two or is there a difference?

The one on the left was the first run. It may have extras in the box if it's an actual launch copy. Eventually they reprinted with new box art and no extras (copy on the right).

For people that have played cave story, would it be better to playthrough on the switch or 3ds? I like two screens and would try the 3d but I also like to be able see the sprites which would make nsw more desirable

The 3D for Cave Story 3D looks really good, but some things are hard to see and the hitboxes don't seem as accurate. Cave Story 3D is also more zoomed-in which means you can't see as far. (The 2D 3DS version isn't zoomed in, but it would be even more impossible to see if the 3D version wasn't zoomed-in.) You do have the second screen, but I don't think that's game changing. 

 

I really feel this type of game should be sprite, and I also like the Switch updated 2D graphics. I really like how the Switch updated graphics makes the background less busy. (You can play with original graphics on the Switch.) The switch is the only place to play COOP, and it has the most soundtrack options. Widescreen is nice, but the 3DS versions are widescreen too.

 

I own the 3DS 3D version and the Switch version, and I play the Switch version when I want some Cave Story.

Thanks for the feedback, I will go with the switch version. I'm old and need bigger sprites

Yeah, a complicated game like Cave Story should definitely be bought on the Switch. I just flat-out refused to buy Ocarina of Time on the 3DS. It didn't take playing the game to know it would look like garbage on that tiny screen.

Check brickseek. Another option is to use the Walmart app and check in store price that way. If you have the UPC for what you are looking for , that will help a lot because clearance items often don't show up when searching by item name in the app and selecting the in this store tab

Such a drastically underrated game; also has excellent DLC.

non-gaming and I wouldn't make a special trip as it's apparently rare but if you're into K-Cups at all I'd check out the coffee aisle.

 

I picked up two 16 count boxes of Peet's Major Dickason's Blend (Dark Roast) for $2.50 each which is pretty absurd. (2 cups for $1 tends to be retail. 3 for $1 is a good deal. 4 for $1 is a great deal and rare even in bulk. This was came out to a little better than 6 for $1.) I'm not a huge Dark Roast fan but after trying it, it's definitely drinkable if you like a strong cup. It's earthy and bitter but not much acidic aftertaste. Brickseek said less than 8%.

 

https://brickseek.co...-s-blend/140697

 

note: it's showing up at $5 at some places.

 

They also had House Blend Decaf for the same size and price.

 

They also had Starbucks 32 Counts clearanced for $5, I think, but maybe $4 I forget. They were all out of stock unsurprisingly. There were a couple others as well that were also out of stock. Great Value Lattes (Chai and Vanilla) were the others I saw.

I usually get the Great Value cappuccino packs, and mix them with a little regular coffee from work. I'd like to try some of those latte flavors, but I don't want to shell out all that money and end up not liking it, like with the pumpkin spice. Those went on clearance pretty fast and rightly so.

Awesome and thanks for posting.  There happens to be some near me for a change.  Doesn't list the price for the targets near me though just says n/a.  Was hoping I could double dip.

As far as advice goes, I think you should either go with a cheap Intel CPU or wait for the gen 1 Ryzen to drop in price. AMD is also better with motherboard support, since Intel might only support 2-3 generations of chips before requiring a mobo upgrade.

 

 

I'd just look around reddit's hardwareswap for a board and/or make a post looking for one.

 

 

Older xeons aren't bad.... I just dropped a 7 year old xeon e3 with a gtx 660 into an arcade1up cab (overkill, yes, but it was just there) and it runs fine. 

 

 

How much are looking to spend on a build tops?

 

Also, what are aiming and looking for? 1080p? 1440p? 4K (2160p)?

 

How many GB on the RX 580 that you scored, BTW? 4 GB or 8GB?

 

If you're looking to play just the titles you listed - eh, as long as find a mobo, probably won't have too much problem....given what I've seen on Youtube for games like W3 here:

Team, 

 

The GPU is 8gb, purchased for $75, pre-owned, but I just noticed some spots that can be descibed as "wet" spots on it, but metal does soak, so is it burned?  Thoughts? 

Actually, I just made a dedicated post on the pC section so we don't pollute this thread here with PC build talk. 

I would really appreciate if you would join me there to help me on this learning pc building journey. 

Thread link, Spend $100 For Build Using 8yr+ Old Parts Or $300+ For Modern Build?

 

oNe

 

p.s. there doesn't seem to be much activity there, so maybe we could kickstart it off!

Animal crossing amiibo fest big box with 2 amiibos was $9.00 at some Walmart. They had all the big box Wii U games there. Mario party 10 and captain toad but only animal crossing seemed to be discounted. I picked one up for $9.00

For anyone needing new or better hair/beard clippers, this set is $34.97 in most stores but $22.00 on rollback on walmart.com.  I ended up doing an order while in store with site to store delivery for free because I didn't have time to go to CS or one of the registers where they will honor the online price as sold by walmart.com as I had groceries to buy too.   Already used them once and they are a dream compared to the garbage clippers I've been using.  No snagging, easy to maintain, no adjustment nob, & a decent length cord.  These are barbershop quality.

i second this. Last year, I was looking for a new one and saw this marked down for $20 online. It’s normally priced at $35. These clippers are quiet yet surprisingly powerful. I use it for my face and head. I only wish it was wireless, for ease of use. Definitely worth it at that price.

Link was working for me shortly after he posted it, but it currently takes me to an error page. I did get a chance to order one for In Store Pickup since my older set is shot. My order got delayed for a day or two. Tried to find another link on the walmart page for you guys but I couldnt get one. Still getting the error page. Model was HC5855

 

Thanks for the heads up on the clippers.

In the walmart app, search "Hair clippers" it's the first result.  $22.00, Remington Virtually Indestructible Barbershop Clipper, 16-piece Haircut Kit, Yellow, HC5855

 

On the app I can still add to cart and buy as it's listed "sold & shipped" by walmart.  During the checkout process you can change to site to store for $0 shipping.  It MAY be dependent on your store having them. Mine said "limited stock" when I ordered and there were 3 or 4 on the shelf at the time as I was in store looking at them and disappointed they didn't scan for the online price but were almost $35.

 

I read a ton of reviews of clippers before taking a chance on these.  I've had plenty of other brands, this is my first Remington branded clipper.

 

Trimmed up the URL, probably because I just copy and pasted the whole thing before:

Got to a store today and the $5 K-cups were wiped out as expected. I did get a box of the GV caramel cappuccino for $2 though. Good deal as I may not have been willing to try some otherwise.

I've used remington before and they are definitely the better brand of trimmer and are usually middle priced so they are not super expensive but not on the cheaper side. I typically pick them up at kohls since you can use coupons and kohls cash and such when they are on sale to get them down to around 30$. 

 

Norelco used to be a great brand but they don't sell the smaller trimmer anymore which were portable AA battery ones. If you ever happen to find one at a walmart I definitely rec buying it.  For the 10 or 14$ I paid for it about a decade ago I got a lot of use out of it.  It still works now but the blades are obviously dull.  I wish I could replace them but that would cost a lot I imagine assuming I could even get replacements.

 

The current trimmer I am using though is one I bought at a giant eagle grocery store for 18$.  It's conair brand.  It's sold in a family bag set and came with an apron, beard net thing, 20-30 attachments though generic ones from other brands fit as well which I happen to have, 2 combs and a fine tooth one that's supposed to be for beards but I just use it as a regular comb.  It's a corded one and works pretty well.  Only things I dislike about it is that it has gaps and hair just falls right into even for the blade section and gets stuck so cleaning it takes more than just tapping on the side of the sink or brushing. The other thing is that it is stronger or weaker depending on the hair thickness setting. The attachments are really hard to get on but easy to get off.  I just wish they had a shorter hair option since the shortest one isn't short enough to me and obviously taking the attachment off makes it too short.
