I have to say I’m pretty jazzed about GameStop having to close 300 stores. I hope their demise is continued and quick. Amazon and Best Buy need to see that blood and go for the kill. Well Best Buy since amazon is also sending out essential items to folks. Die GameStop die.

Yeah, I love seeing Americans lose their jobs too. Especially to a company like Amazon, who strong armed the US Postal service to ship their goods at a near Express Mail rate while only having to pay sub-parcel post rates! Good times!

Amazon doesn't even really need the USPS anymore.

I really tried to like this game, but I gave up when I reached the first puzzle with the mirrors which was a pain in the ass. Life is too short.

My hats off to Zen for trying a different genre than pinball, but I'm thinking the developer/publisher needs to stick to what it knows.

I had the same issue with the game. That first puzzle was frustrating to say the least. Not a good way to start a game.

I thought that part was janky too and almost quit. Funny enough if you stick with it, that part serves more as a tutorial and after you finish the area is where the game actually begins. And the first dungeon is real cool with some of the puzzles and hidden areas. Some stuff you can’t access until you get powers later in the game and open up the fast travel system . I really think if you give it a little more time, it’ll get it’s hooks into you if you like the genre.

It gives you a code.  I haven't redeemed mine yet, but I got it the other day in my email.  But I believe that it will give you the option to do auto renew for it runs out when you redeem it, and that is how people have been getting an extra month added when they redeem the code.  But you have to have a card number on file.  I'm planning to do that, and then I'll cancel the auto renew and remove my card number.


Sometimes I’ll get the option for an extra month and sometimes I won’t and I have a card on file. I remember it being inconsistent when I was only gold and game pass.

There’s plenty of food joints or grocery stores for all those GameStop dudes and their skills to go get jobs at oh and who will treat them better than the GameStop fucktards who asked them to use plastic bags to stay safe from exposure.

One of my favorite PS3 games. Looking forward to seeing the differences in story as well as the updated graphics, day one for me.


Yeah, I missed the first one and the cost is pretty high these days even for a used copy. Apparently this is the real version of the game, the main difference being the protagonist is the brother instead of the father. Keeping my eye on this game!

Food and grocery stores that are on the frontline of coronavirus, and the employees have no choice but to deal with crowds of people. GS has closed all stores off to public access, as they should. Do you think grocers have adequate cleaning supplies? No one does. UPS and the postal service don't either.

Again, I haven't redeemed the code because I've been busy so I'm just telling you what others who have redeemed their codes have said.  But I'm not really in a financial position right now not to turn it down if the extra month is offered since it will get me through the end of the year with Game Pass Ultimate.

I started playing Ori the other night. It lags at some parts which is a weird feeling for an offline game. Definately needs some patches still. The art and gameplay are great though. I hope Ori and Borderlands 3 get some more optimization patches.

I have no ill feelings for GameStop, I don’t think I’ve been in one for a few years, maybe once at a mall. I wonder if some mom and pop game stores will open if they shut down more and more stores. A buddy of mine tried to open a small game store in the town I went to college at but it was to hard to keep it open with GameStop around. Unless you do retro stuff, digital is hard to compete with.

As someone who paid full price for Nier: Automata when it first came out on Xbox, I'm glad that more people will get to give that game a shot. One of my most memorable experiences this console generation. Highly recommended.

With 775% increase I'm honestly surprised the service has been as stable as it has been.

I Like how the Bing browser bonus today is "Check out upcoming baseball games!" then clicking on it and first thing it says "The MLB season has been suspended until further notice". So I'm assuming whoever is that sets those up is probably making sure all the servers are in fine shape instead.

UPS and the postal service don't either.

 

I can't speak for all areas, but many distilleries are producing a sanitizer and *giving* it away to people. First responders are getting it above all others. USPS and UPS are both getting supplied locally by a distillery here. While not a first responder, they are putting us at the top of the list after the first responders get theirs filled. Haven't talked to any FedEx guys recently, but I do know UPS is getting supplied also.

 

Fun fact, sanitizer on thermal labels wipes all traces of ink..

I think that’s just a set rotation. That bonus came up quite frequently during the off-season

Tempted by DSIII and Evil Within 2. But hard to justify considering I haven't even played DSII or the first Evil Within yet.

Dark Souls doesn't need to be played in order. The stories are related, but only in the sense that they're all about cyclical time and the end of a particular age. DS3 has the smoothest movement and combat, best graphics, and most active community. I recommend people start with it all the time. If you like the core gameplay DSR and SotFS are totally cool in their own rights and worth a playthrough, but they have a lot more jank and places where you have to crank your brightness.


Quiet. You may awaken Brannigan.

FE FI FO FIC, I smell someone going off topic!

Didn't see it mentioned recently, but Drawful 2 is currently free for the next 2 weeks, for those Jackbox fans out there.

My COD Warzone career probably peaked last night.  Got the win with 17 kills while playing with a Spanish speaking duo that I could only partially understand.  The highlight was us blowing up a truck filled with a squad that was coming full speed head on at the last possible second.

They'd be at more risk if they worked a grocery store. How fucking ignorant can you be?

 

Has your head been up your ass?  Gamestop as a whole is a shit business with a Fuck you mentality to people who work their and their customers.  Hence, the memes and shit about trade in values etc.  They provided no protection for their workers, called their business essential and asked them to simply put their hands in shopping bags when interacting with customers.  Grocery stores and restaurants that remain open have taken to protecting their employees and customers with social distancing, heightened cleaning procedures and no touch policies.  Hell Best Buy will drop a pick up order in your truck with surgical gloves on, not toddle out like a moron with 2 blue grocery bags on their hands and hand it to you.  Fuck Gamestop and their business model.  The people working there can transition to many industries post corona but hell no one even knows what that landscape looks like currently for anyone.

 

I hate when overwhelming ignorance pushes me to be off topic after two posts ago complaining about this shit.
