Is $50 off a MSI Trident 3 a decent deal?

Been looking to upgrade to a PC, though I would prefer a laptop. The MSI laptop promotion isn't a good deal.


Do you need to do a lot of gaming on the go? If not, I would suggest building your own desktop PC and buy a cheap laptop if you are using it for more simple things (internet browsing, watching videos, etc.). Gaming laptops can be expensive, and they aren't as easy to upgrade as desktops.

I mean, if you have gs credit you don't want to use for anything else that's cool but generally speaking it's significantly better to just build a pc for gaming and it's also better to not go the gaming laptop route.

They are better than they used to be though. Still a desktop is better.

Especially at 1080p we're at a point where a $200 graphics card and a $500 graphics card are going to turn out very similar results at 1080p on almost all modern games.

Until a new console generation starts don't expect huge leaps ahead in performance requirements for most pc games.

Does anyone know what to do when you can't redeem rewards points on the app anymore?

It prompts to enter your email, and then throws an error when you order anything. It works on the mobile site, just not the app.

Be sure to check the MS Store's prices too. You can convert your GS credit to Xbox credit which you can use there.

That's why I never worry about "OMG the deeelz ended forevahzzz"... Most people are too stupid to figure this shit out. All the stupid fuckers that grabbed huge stacks of the same game in this deal got turned down or banned. The steady stream of deals will go on undeterred - just like it has for the previous decade...

These stupid people only put the employees on notice that something sketchy is going on. Maybe the deal exists but what good does it do me if every store around me is aware and will deny me?

The publicity this deal got was horrible because the more public it got, the more stupid people came out the woodwork. I had to add an employee to my "do not interact with" list because some idiot came in and traded $800 worth of games and then spent it all on more flips.

Not to derail the OT conversations about last week's deals, but I am tempted by Star Trek Bridge Crew, having picked up a PSVR this weekend. Has anyone played it?

I've had the same issue for as long as I can remember. It always shows up in the active offers on the app right after I place the order on the mobile site, though.

Anyone know when the 50% trade bonus in the ad is good for? I've seen it mentioned a few times but without details.


I grabbed a few flyers just incase. it's good from 7/24 to 8/6

I think this should help you make your decision.

Ron Jeremy's nickname is "The Hedgehog. " So this logic totally makes sense.

I was at my regular GS and witnessed something like this. A guy traded in probably a little under 20 games, the very obvious PVZ2, ASM2, etc for both systems. The people that work there are cool and didn't turn down the trade. As soon as he got his trade card he tells his female companion "Now we just buy the same games off the shelf with this and go to the one down the street". The employee looked at me and rolled her eyes.

GAF loves to act like enlightened high society pricks

They have sucked for a long time and just recently tried to cover up for one of their pedo mods.

Somewhat related to this.   I have to ask.  Was there a CAG in the eastern PA area this weekend that came over to the PS4 area and started chatting with a guy (in his 40's) and his 10 year old son about what games were appropriate for a 10 year old?  

 

There have been so many times that guys have jokingly referred to a secret handshake but this was the first time I ever wished we had one (or a code word) because the way the guy was looking at my games and then looking back at his phone I was convinced that he was a CAG.   What convinced me was that he never came out and did anything obvious and never said anything out loud like the guy in Nightcrawler's anecdote.

 

EDIT:  And I reiterate my point that it was an obvious rookie mistake to focus on PvZ and Spiderman when there were so many easy and non-conspicuous boomerangs available.

 

And one other question:  How do we search (in lieu of control F) on the sheets app?   TIA.

There's a find feature in the hamburger menu.

There is a Find & Replace feature. Obviously you can't edit it but it will still let you search.

Its a great game but gets kinda boring after 4-5 hours, but those 4-5 hours are VERY cool if you are a star trek fan.  To me its the kind of game you play 2-3 times and then sorta never play again, there are a few main missions and then you are pretty much done unfortunately.  It is multiplayer only afaik, I think there are bots and stuff if you try to solo it but dunno how well that works.  Its "realistic" in that there are 4 seats on the bridge, taken by 4 people - engineering, nav, captain, and security - and each can only do limited things so everyone has to work together and talk about what to do.  Its extremely immersive and you feel like you are in the trek world.

 

It shares the playerbase afaik so PC and PSVR people play together, all seamless, but the PSVR version is not anywhere near as good as the PC version if you have the option to play either one definitely go PC.  PSVR is fine, just textures and visuals not as good.

Nephew's bday is this weekend and I think I'll get him Injustice 2.  It really is a great game.  Green Arrow is my favorite to fight with.
