Got it today :)

 

 

Nice! Congrats. I'm always happy when Gamestop here is cool about things. I've heard the district manager is really strict. At least, that's what they told me when I used to try to get penny guides.

I've never seen anyone list unemployment and debt default as a "strength."   :)
 

If you want to be altruistic and don't mind being saddled with debt for your entire life, then go ahead, but you can probably do more good with less debt pursuing other careers.  The best case scenario is a sweet salary and working an insane amount of hours each week until you make partner and then wonder where your life went.  

 

Not to pile on, but at least make sure you know exactly what you are getting into. Everyone knows the stereotype of the rich lawyer, so you probably don't need a lot of info on the "pros". So focus on the cons: read law school scamblogs, check out "Above the Law", look at employment opportunities in places you would actually want to live, think about whether you have the personality for the type of law you would most likely be able to practice (i.e., do you have the personality/drive to be a Biglaw associate or the self discipline/selling skills to be a solo?). Finally be realistic about your options - if you get a lot of money for a T14, a full scholarship to a T25 or there's a compelling reason to go to another Tier 1 school (full ride, best in state you want to practice in and low cost of living), then consider it.

Thanks to both of you!




#11549503 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread X

Posted by CrimsonTribe on 22 February 2014 - 03:59 PM

I guess I wasn't specific enough. My bad.

 

I meant that if I want to search Amazon Warehouse deals and only bring back AWD as the seller then how would I go about that.

 

I.E. I want to find an xbox one system and only want to buy from AWD as the seller.

 

I have seen a few links that make it to only see PS4 sold by AWD and am not sure how they did it. I personally want to set up a few different watches for items that are currently not being sold by AWD (xbox one, controllers, some games etc), but want to only buy from AWD when it comes in stock.

 

Like this link only shows PS4s sold by AWD  http://www.amazon.co...&seller=&sr=1-1

 

There are probably other ways, but here is one way:

 

1) Go to the amazon.com page for the item you want on AWD.

 

2) Find the product code, it's generally the first set of random letters/numbers after the name of the item in the url. For example, the XBOX ONE code is: B00CMQTVUA (from this url: EDIT hmmm, url not showing up, just do a search for XBOX ONE on amazon.com)

 

3) Copy that code

 

4) Go to any AWD product page. Find the code for that product

 

5) In that space, replace the existing product code with the code for the product you want. This will cause the AWD page for that product to show up. If it's not available, the page will come up showing items are unavailable.

 

6) There are different codes for different versions, i.e., there is a different code for a Day One console.

#11493999 GoHastings: 30% off used games/books/CDs/movies with promo code ACASCUSEME, 2...

Posted by CrimsonTribe on 02 February 2014 - 04:12 PM

I much prefer gohastings deals posted independently so I actually see them. I don't think anyone has a right to monopolize all the deal postings of a single company. Thank you OP for posting this.

 

I don't think it's a matter of monopolizing - for some retailers it's useful to have a dedicated thread (not that there can't be single deal threads). For something like Gohastings, a dedicated thread helps buyers see what past sales have been like, understand things like the typical conditions for items, and point out things that might get missed in a non-dedicated post (like the fact that Hastings now "guts" new games some times or that the shipping prices for books has changed). Also, having a dedicated thread means that people can subscribe and follow in one place.

I think Dead Kel is one of the best quests & areas in Amalur. Better than A LOT of the stuff in the base-game. You actually do wind-up caring about the people & inhabitants of this area. Also, Kel's just a bad-ass and the DLC keeps giving you reason after reason to hate the guy - he's a really good villain; and certainly much more interesting than Gadflow (from the base-game), if you ask me. Took me about 10 hours to punch through that DLC.

 

Plus, Captain Brattigan is hilarious. :D She's entertaining and quirky as hell.

 

Dead Kel DLC, unlike many parts of the base-game, actually has a good deal of personality to it.

 

Naros is good - but yeah, save that for later on. It's an epic questline - though, it just really doesn't have the personality that Dead Kel DLC has.

 

I agree, Dead Kel is better. I played both near the end of the game and Naros felt like more of the same (which I was fine with, because I loved KOA) but Dead Kel felt more like a cool twist on the base game. If you enjoy the game, both are worth it, but if you are only going to choose one, Dead Kel is a better bet.




#11478700 Amazon PCDD - Important Update New Community Manager Incoming!

Posted by CrimsonTribe on 28 January 2014 - 02:36 AM

I've never played digital football before so Lords might be fun.  Maybe.

 

Speaking of software purchases has anyone bought boxed software from the Amazon Warehouse?  I'm looking at a drawing package that is marked as Like New with possible damage to the packaging (don't care).  Any reason not to buy a returned cd package?  I honestly didn't even think you could return software but there it is.

I follow the AWD (Amazon Warehouse Deals) thread that Motoki mentioned pretty closely and generally (i.e., not 100% of the time, but most of time), software there is not an opened return (because of the obvious and mentioned problem of using codes) but (1) boxes with cosmetic damage from storage/preparing for shipping or (2) (supposedly) amazon liquidating inventory from acquisitions of other companies/other company warehouse space.

 

What you described as "possible damage to the packaging" is what is known in that thread as a "dinger" (an item with "dings"), and this is often, but not always, a new item with cosmetic packaging damage, but it never left the amazon warehouse.

 

AWD has some great deals (although mostly for consoles of course) if you are willing to live with a little risk and to ship things back to Amazon if they don't work. Amazon is very good about this and will pay return shipping for items that don't work/don't match the description.  :)  Just don't abuse it - there are stories in the AWD thread about people who got perma-banned from Amazon and that is a terrible fate :-(.

[Cross posted on Amazon PCDD Thread]

 

I've been getting back into The Secret World recently and I'd like to give a little something back to the CAG community. So, I'm having a little contest where I am giving away 5 codes for the game (not steam unfortunately, 4 amazon and 1 retail box).  Here are the rules:

 

1) Contest starts now

2) Contest ends on Sunday, January 19, 2014 at midnight pacific time.

3) PM me for one entry (Mulitple PMs do not lead to multiple entries and may lead to disqualifications)

4) Each entry will be assigned a number based on the order it is received. (but having an early entry does not give you any benefits)

5) You can get 1-4 additional entries by including in your pm: faction you think you'd play (1 extra), deck you like (1 extra) and an explanation of why (1-2 subjective extra entries based on how much I like the answer - you don't need to write an essay, just something interesting)

6) When I have a chance on Monday (no specific time, I have to work, but hopefully around 6pm pacific). I will announce the winners in both the Amazon PCDD thread and the Steam thread. I will also pm the winners. The winners must pm me back to claim the code by Sunday, January 26, 2014 at midnight pacific time. If anyone does not, I will pick another winner for their code.

7) Winners will be chosen by random number generator. For example if you are the 5th person to pm me, I assign number 5. If you include the faction you want, you get number 6. Include the deck and an explanation that I like, you get 7, 8, and 9. I will set the random number generator based on the number of entries and if your number comes up, you win.

8) No more than one code can be won by an account.

9) I hope this is enough, but I reserve the right to change the rules at any time. I don't have any plans to, but I've never run something like this before so there may be problems I have not anticipated.

10) These are all US keys, I'm not sure how it works if you are not in the US.

 

 

Requests - I'm not going to enforce these in anyway, but it would be nice if:

1) If you win, you use a trial from me before you sign up permanently so I can get the veteran points or whatever it is.

2) If you win, you add my character ("Pyrmancer") in game (you can ignore, me but if you're interested, I'm always happy to help out in the early areas)

3) If you already have the game, it's fine if you give the code to a friend, but it would be nice if you add my char in game and ask the person who gets the code to do this as well.

4) [maybe I'll think of other things]

 

Congrats to:

 

Financial Panther

ChelseaGrinK

Master Miguel

Gramis

Palinn

 

PM me to confirm you still want the key :bouncy: and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

 

Thanks to everyone who sent me PMs. There were some great entries and I wish I could buy a code for everyone.

I have this mouse: Logitech G700 (Edit- actually I have this one, I'm not sure there's much of a difference  (I got it from a 3rd party seller a few months ago for a lot less). It probably could be set up to work directly with TSW, but I just used the logitech software to set the additional buttons to numbers 1-8. So I press a button to activate the skill I have set to 1, 2, 3 , etc. It works pretty well, I know the pattern I want to build and consumer various resources, so after a little while of building the muscle memory, I can set up the combos quickly. 

 

Logitech also allows you to program macros (i.e., you press 1 mouse button and it sends a signal like 1,1,2,3 or whatever) to the computer if you want to have a build->consume combo preset, but I haven't really played around with that, I prefer to have flexibility as to my next move.

 

I wouldn't say it's a necessity, but it has been very helpful, especially when I'm tanking in a battle where i need to pull a boss somewhere, I just find it easier to focus on WASD to move and use a mouse button to activate a skill. 

 

I didn't want to retype my thoughts on the G700, but I thought I'd add that it's nice to be able to use the mouse wirelessly or with the USB cord, and to not have to worry about batteries.
