So is the consensus that Moss is worth the $30 price tag?

A quick google search will confirm this.  Pretty much everyone is raving about it.

It's a short game, but it's incredible.  If $30 is worth 3.5-4 hours to you on the first play through, then yeah.  I've already played through it 3x and plan on doing it at least 1 more time without dying so I can get the final trophy.  After that I may visit it every now and then just because it's so awesome and the world is amazing, but it will suck to play it without any kind of purpose.

3-4 hours is fine for $30 imo, as long as it’s great. I was afraid it was much shorter. Thanks

Yeah if you explore and look for all the collectibles, watch the cutscenes, and just take it all in, you can easily hit the 4 hour mark on the first play through.  The game is a masterpiece though.  The way they created Quill and how "real" she feels, and just the whole level design being like a diorama that you can physically look through, it's just incredible.

Ahhh I found a new PSVR Skyrim bundle at a local discount store for $250 out the door. Already have a Vive, picked it up anyway. Not sure if I'll keep it or return it. I don't necessarily need another VR headset but at that price I couldn't say no :/

So I just beat Moss start to finish without dying and timed it to see how long it would take and it took exactly 60 minutes.  Got the platinum though!

Personally, I'm just waiting for it to go on sale.  It'll go on sale eventually and it will save me a lot of money.  Even if it's worth $30, it'll be worth it even more at $15.

Not sure if mentioned but Inpatient dropped in price on Amazon to $30.00, cheaper used through warehouse but "acceptable" for 24.79.

As a CAG, even a $1 discount makes it that much sweeter. I don't think a sale will be coming anytime soon (especially since it's a critically-acclaimed title that was prominently featured on the demo disc), but the next 20% off coupon would be a good opportunity to snag it for $24.

God damn it. That makes my latest "victory" seem that less impressive. I bet I could have nabbed it even cheaper if I waited one more week. *sigh*

Anything over $15 is too much for The Inpatient, imo. I was really excited for it since I loved Untill Dawn and RoB, but buying it at launch was a mistake.

I bought that IBIS hdmi switch people recommend for users with the old PSVR who want HDR passthrough. 

https://sewelldirect...h-box-2x1-white

 

The HDMI cables that came with the PS4 Pro, the PSVR, The Xbox one X, and Amazonbasics 4k branded ones aren't working. Does anyone with that switch have HDMI cables to recommend? 

 

The cables on the sewell website are $10+shipping. The rocketfish cables were recommended by one amazon review, but they are $29.99 each. Some people say monoprice cables work and some people say monoprice cables don't work. I don't know which monoprice ones to buy. 

 

 

I'm thinking of gambling $14 on two of these, but I'm not sure https://www.amazon.c...DKIKX0DER&psc=1

I just bought an HDMI Switch for my PS4Pro and PSVR.  I actually bought the Huierav HDMI 2.0 AB Switch, but I know the IBIS works well too.  I did a ton of research and I have had to do a few tweaks in my setup, but I think I have a few tips that will help get yours working right. 

 

 

1.  Make sure your IBIS Switch is the White One, the Black One will not do what you are wanting.  

2.  Make sure you use a short, like 6 inch HDMI 2.0 cable from your PS4 to the switch.  Longer hdmi cables going from the PS4 to the switch do not always work.  This is the exact one I bought for my switch, and it works great.  It is $7.  https://www.amazon.c...1?ie=UTF8&psc=1

3.  Make sure you use your switch when the PS4 is turned off.  I know a lot of people had better success using the switch when the PS4 wasn't on.  However, the Huierav switch I bought will switch quickly, without issues, without turning off the PS4.  Sometimes it has more to do with your receiver or your TV really needing the PS4 to be off before switching the HDMI Switch.

There is an easy joke out there (for Job Simulator fans) about how you can now repackage the Gamestop CEO as used and mark him up by $10 since the new copy is no longer available.  #Toosoon

So I peeled off the "new looking" $34.99 sticker, and underneath was a $19.99 new sticker.

It was definitely a brand new copy, marked up. There wasn't even a pre-owned $29.99 sticker underneath, it was just the $34.99 affixed over the new. Shady as fuuu

This always pissed me off when I worked at Gamestop and this is just them getting sloppy about it. We used to get shipments from the warehouse of "used" PS2 games that were more expensive titles at the time (probably still are today) like Guitaroo Man and SMT: Nocturne which both sold for less new, but was no longer in print so virtually no stores had new copies. Well, this is because Gamestop would send the new copies back to the warehouse to be sent back to stores as used copies. In the cases of these games the used copies were usually $20-$25 more than what the new copies were priced at in the store. They also will do this with newer games to lower the price in some cases to get rid of stock they can't move, but that happens way less often.

I was able to score Robinson: The Journey from a local Wal-Mart today for $19.93. I had the employee scan for more copies, but sadly it was the only one. It was on the very bottom of the glass case in a row of random games.Screenshot_2018-03-05-15-58-15.png

Never heard of Robinson and the reviews slam it pretty badly.

I still wanted to check it out and it helps that it's out of print and rare now, so I can sell it for way more than I paid for it.

After reading some Bravo Team reviews this morning, I don't think I'm going to open my copy from Amazon and will be sending it back.

Same here, sounds like it will be better to wait for a sale or clearance. That sucks, I was really hoping it would be good.

The PlayStation Move controller is frustrating. I just want a pair of them for under $50. Damn supply and demand.

I got mine refurbished on Amazon before the PSVR came out for $23 for the pair. I figured they'd jump in price but didn't expect them to go up that much since it's old tech.

May get Monster of the Deep. I've been wanting a decent VR fishing game, and this seems like the best one currently out there. Anyone here played it?

Man some of these reviews of Bravo Team are hilariously bad.

 

 

 

Simply put, the work put in as a result of the delay wasn’t enough — there is nothing truly good about this game. It’s poorly made and is, hands down, the worst game I’ve ever played. The fact that the end credits didn’t include a personal apology because you simply made it to ’em is astonishing.
