For some reason I remembered a movie from my childhood tonight, The Sword and the Sorcerer! Searched online to see if I could watch it anywhere and found the DVD for the low price of $89.99 on Amazon.

But they have it with RiffTrax on Amazon Prime. Would love to watch it without the commentary but damn is that movie cheesy. What passed as awesome through the eyes of a kid.

Anyone else remember it?

Samsung Electronics UN55MU9000 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2017 Model)

$785.53  $628.42 - Quantity: 1
$157.11 discount applied

 Nice 4k HDR TV from Amazon Warehouse. Twice the TV of the TCU everybody been talking about. I snapped one up, not many left.  

I have the 2016 model but curved.

It's a great TV especially if you like to cast from your phone/tablet.

Hopefully that means it will hit the Vault even faster :)

And I’ll continue to use my 10-hour trial on occasion while I wait.

Yeah that Samsung TV doesn't have the best of HDR. I own it. With the way prices have been dropping lately I would wait and see what TV you can get with "true" HDR for a bit more in price.

Apparently there was free Sonic Generations DLC released this month when the game went BC (or was free forever. I dunno) but just throwing this out there.

This probably doesn't have the best of HDR either but gonna pick this one up once it drops a bit more either $300 or $250.

Ugh, finished Far Cry 5 last night and was about to start GR Wildlands but my controller has a deadzone issue now. The right stick will literally move up whenever it feels like, which becomes a pain in the ass. I barely got through the end of Far Cry because of it. I don't know if there is any easy fixes, because I would like to not have to buy a new controller.

Same, 9500 has been nice to me. Get the new firmware from Samsung's site, did wonders for HDR for me.

360 had a ton of system sellers. Halo 3, Gears 2, Mass Effect (at the time). Lots of exclusives people bought 360s to play.

I agree, a 'system seller' can mean different things to different people depending on their circumstances.  I was a die-hard PC gamer until I finally picked up a 360 for Kinect Sports and Dance Central for social gaming.  Rock Band soon followed (not exclusive) and then I stumbled onto Mass Effect and basically stopped PC gaming altogether a year or two later.  The ease of use, and living room play, are what sold me.

 

As for the platform wars, I just don't get it.  I initially bought a PS4 this gen due to Microsoft's E3 hubris, but later picked up a One as I missed the controller, the UI, and achievements.  Actually traded in the PS4 in a few months ago as I never turned it on.  I also have an i7/GTX1070/32GB which would blow the pants off both consoles graphically, but I rarely use it for gaming. 

 

None of the various options is pricey enough that I could imagine getting into flame wars over it.   I am a little annoyed at Sony for blocking cross-platform play though.  It would be fun to play Minecraft with my little nephew, but not sure it's worth buying a PS4 just because Sony is being a stick in the mud.

Did they reveal what the conversion rate was going to be for the xbox live reward stuff? I got 264 gems and I highly doubt they’ll get more five dollar certificates back in stock.

It was a Gamestop pre-order bonus when it came out. Now it's available to everyone.

I burned mine on Warframe Platinum last night, logged in today to find another 200 gems for something I did. Got another 75 plat.

The FAQ said it was 1:1 gems for points, which is laughable since you can get 250 points in 3 minutes of clicking through the news while 250 gems would have got a $5 card.

Hopefully it finds A Way In to my backlog!

If it’s cheap enough I may have to find A Way to get one of you guys to do online coop with me (and my pain in the ass schedule).

Anyone play Robocraft Infinity? Played for the first time tonight and it’s actually pretty fun. Haven’t had a chance to put together a decent robot but seems worthy of playing — among the other million games in my backlog.

Thinking the same thing. Just waiting fire or to hit the Vault.

Decided to pull the trigger on The Surge tonight. I was surprised to see it is only 6.47 GB even though it is X1X enhanced with HDR.  I guess the HDR does not add much to the file size. Either way, it still seems like a small file.

I've been playing Robocraft Infinity. I like it but the servers have seemed a little unstable. The first day in 5v5 the smooth lady robovoice kept saying "player disconnected" every minute during a 15 minute match. I got knocked out several times when the server dropped me.

Of course it has a lockout feature to prevent people from being quitters. But then it drops you and calls you a quitter and locks you out from entering another match for x minutes. I've read about weak AI that's passed the Turing Test by imitating psychosis, but this was rediculous.

Seems more stable now, hopefully the bugs will get worked out. You do need to keep playing to build up your inventory and robits (in game currency to unlock parts, buy other players robot designs, etc.). You get rewarded with loot boxes for leveling up or signing in daily, or of course you can buy the lot boxes with real money.

Deck13 are wizards. There’s other 4k enhancements too I believe, but I stick with 60fps.

The only 2018 TCL model currently at Best Buy now shows sold out. Mine should be ready for store pickup on Wednesday. Hopefully the stock for the 6 series is better when it releases in a week or so.
