TVs have gotten so much cheaper in the past 5-10 years. My main TV is a Sony reaer projection 69 inch HD TV that cost me $2k+ about 8-9 years ago. Still works well and has a good picture but it’s old outdated technology.

On Black Friday I bought a 32 inch Roku HD TV for 150$ For the bedroom. Pretty low end, off brand, 720p but you know what? It looks great! It works awesome for when the wife and I want to lay in bed and stream TV. I wouldn’t use it as my main movie/gaming TV but for strictly watching TV in the bedroom it’s perfect.

Now the main bad boy needs to be replaced and ultra had 4K is getting cheaper and cheaper. I’ve seen 55 inch ultra had TVs for under 1,000.

So yeah your money goes a lot farther these days with TVs and while I wouldn’t say 135$ TV is going to be the best picture quality available, for a person on a budget, it’s going to be fine and the quality is better than you might think.

I understand what you're saying. Makes sense. I guess I assumed the $135 tv was the main tv but to stream stuff on it's probably not bad at all.

If you buy a smaller tv (because of space, whatever) not only is it cheaper but you don't really need all the bells and whistles as much, so I can understand spending a smaller amount.  But for the size, the Sony is kind of a budget TV for that range of features.

Have 2 games I was going to buy, but they're on sale until next month.

Will wait until tomorrows sale and see what new stuff comes up. Rather wait before using my 20% coupon.

I'm gonna do the same. I briefly debated grabbing Far Cry Primal, but I know it's been cheaper and what kind of a CAG am I if I don't wait for the cheaper price? If nothing goes on sale tomorrow that I may want, I might just get Horizon Zero Dawn dlc 20% off.

Anyone have any thoughts on the Wipeout Omega Collection? The reviews look pretty good, but some people complain about difficulty spikes later on the game.

I know a few pages back someone asked what pinball tables (for zen pinball 3) were good for beginners, but what i'm wondering is which out of the bunch would you recommend above all else? What is your favorite set of tables?

Pretty much this.  I love me arcade racers, and Wipeout is a -tremendous- arcade racer, but it is HARD.  

 

You've got speed strips to hit if you want the best time.  

 

You've got air bracks and side shifting.

 

You've got barrel rolls to pull off during jumps to get a speed boost when you land.

 

You've got weapons.

 

You've got hard to pull off shortcuts.

 

All this at hyperspeeds.

It's... amazing, really.  But -really- hard to master.  This should not deter you from giving it a try - Wipeout really is top of the line... but it's hard as nails to master.

Plus, if you wish to platinum it, you also have to beat Zico's lap time on certain tracks, and he's like the best WipEout player ever.

Wow so the year 3 pass doesn’t include anything from year 2? Maybe I’ll jump back in and see if the abuse is worth it. 😂

Nah but I thoroughly enjoy the game, I'll be passing about the $120 Mark with this purchase but I easily have 1000 hours in the game.  Great value.  The new meta is fantastic too

So.   I have a copy of Lego LOTR for PS3.   I've always wanted to play it, but we've been really hit and miss with lego games.  Specifically, both my wife and I absolutely loved Indiana Jones, and nothing else has really lived up to that [tried batman, marvel on ps4, and the star wars collection on ps3].    Anyone have any feedback on LOTR?  I'm not sure why Indiana had that magic for us the others didn't.   

 

If we get rid of it, it'll be donated to a family in need, so it's for a good cause.  But we're already donating other stuff [in addition to buying stuff new] so it's not like I -need- to give it away or anything [if it was on ps4 i'd just give it away and rebuy].

Booted up the Destiny 2 trial and I'm really confused ... I thought this was a multiplayer game? They just dropped me into a bunch of cinematics and terrible boring linear hallway shooting segments.

Tried to quit out and find how to play the multiplayer but no luck. I get the impression this "trial" is actually just a demo, not a trial.

 

I'm sure the game doesn't suck as badly as this demo, I've seen clips of it online and streaming and stuff and it looks fun and I know people like it. But my god, this demo is garbage and definitely made me more hesitant to buy the game than I was before I opened the demo.

 

edit: never mind, Destiny 2 just for some reason opens up with a really bad linear design first person shooter segment that functions as a very long, unskippable cinematic.

Sounds like the very first part of Destiny 2 when you create a new character. Once you get past that and get to the farm, its MP.

God damn these different dates thing. I wanted Don't Knock Twice for $9.99, but I waited in the off-chance that I received a 20% off code or some good Samaritan had one to spare. For some reason, I thought it expired 12/19. I fucking hate myself.

Hopefully there are some good sales tomorrow. I'll be waiting for any possible flash sale before using my 20% coupon.

Is there any history of Christmas Day flash sales? I think that’s when the 20% off expires.

It starts before Christmas. If there was one, it would be this Friday. There are no guarantees but it doesn't hurt to wait.

I don't remember there ever being one on Christmas.. but the weekend of New Years seems primed for a flash sale with the way the days line up.. so that would be my bet.  Then again we didn't even get one last month, so who knows?

Did you go in completely blind? Destiny is a sort-of MMO, most of the multiplayer is co-op exploration/story missions as well as instanced Strikes and Raids, with a lot able to be done solo. The PvP is a smaller part of the whole game.

Has anyone here played Yomawari: Midnight Shadows at all? It was on IGN’s best horror games of 2017 list. I was just curious on people’s opinions. I’d never heard of it before now.

Also, is it cross buy?

Well, I did it. I purchased 10 games for about $20. I would have splurged on more expensive titles IF I HAD A 20% COUPON but oh well. Hard to feel bad at that price. And I managed to do it before a few sales expired this morning (RIP, Don't Knock Twice).

 

I still have another 20 titles on my "want list" for this PSN sale, but they're a bit pricier so I might wuss out. I also want to hold out for whatever treasures may lie in wait.

 

I seriously have 1000 games to play and not enough time in the world.  :-({|=
