Luckily I'm not spoiler sensitive.
I like this as well. I actually go and read the plot for movies on wiki before I see them sometimes. Read the one for Last Jedi since I might not see it till the BD drops.

Multiples. I grabbed all the movies I wanted first. Then I picked up a game. Now I'm just waiting for everything else.
Just be careful BB has in the past made it to where if you make to many orders they will put a hold on your order and you have to call to get the order approved.

Always go for the blu ray. Sure the DVD's are tempting at that price but it is better to future proof your collection. Also there is a huge difference in BD qual over DVD qual both in PQ and AQ. If you are hurting to watch the show and want to see it bad then go for the DVD but imo it is better to hold out for the BD. Not only that, as you can see they are pretty much going to phase out DVD's. 10+ years has passed which is more then enough time to have gotten a BD player by now.

One good thing about the political talk is it always gives me more people to add to my ignore list. If in 2017 you want to put yourself on the side defending actual Nazis there is nothing I ever need to hear from you.
Putting people on ignore is just an excuse to be closed minded. I don't agree with Liberals/Dems/Left/PC/SWJ's/Antifa but I won't ignore them because I may not agree with them. It helps me gain some insight. Although I will say that those of us on the Right do not support the KKK regardless how the media try to say we do. Also Antifa is basically the Alt Left. Politics aside thinking about picking up South Park. My friend is playing it and really likes it.

Back in my day, we didn't like Nazis but we damn sure respected them! These Nazis we have today are just a bunch of young punks.
I hope you are including the trash that is anita.
Also for those that care, Kalimba is free via GwG in Taiwan.
Just used Chrome and it should auto translate for you.

As you know Walmart clearance is ymmv but probably worth checking BrickSeek for your area but I saw the fantastic beast story pack for $10 and Lego batman movie story pack for $5. I already have them so I passed but now that I think about it I'll go back to grab them as those are great prices just for the parts and minifigures. I do need to find the Ghostbusters 2016 pack at that price before they disappear
This should be the SKU's for them.
Fantasitc Beasts - 138526178
Batman Movie - 55048838
Still showing up full price for me. :( Man sucks...lol

Question about the Digimon Tri bluray release. It looks like amazon is the only one with the slipcase and the digital download? I don't see it mentioned on bestbuy's site.
It's actually a slipcover and not a slipcase. A slipcover fits over the top while a slipbox usually slides in from the side.
And the term slipcase is used by mainly Europeans as here it is called a slipbox. But no Amazon isn't the only one with the slipcover. My WM had 5 copies with the slipcover and then BB had 3 copies with slipcover.

Re: the ending -- The endings always show up in order, regardless how you do. So when you clear 2 of the 4 major bosses, it triggers the first ending for El Sueno (the major/final boss). If you go and encounter him right away, you get that ending. BUT, if you wait until you clear all 4 bosses first (which is the trigger for the other ending) and then approach him, it will still show you that first ending first because you triggered it first, if that makes sense. Replaying the final boss mission will then get you the other ending if you cleared all 4 bosses.
Ahh ok cool thanks for the info. My kid played it and and did the first ending and then went back for the second one. I wasn't sure because I'm still playing it lol. I'm workingn on getting all four bosses unlocked but might as well go and beat El real quick then haha.
Speaking of Wildlands, just saw the trailer for Narco Road, looks like they watched Fast & Furious 4 lol.Spoiler
Been playing it since the 18th and it is interesting. You have no squadmates so it makes it much more of challenge. Also my fav weapon isn't there so I'm learning to use different ones so that makes it fun as well. Also the nitro boost is cool. The missions can be a bit of a pain but overall I like it. I had one mission where I had to drive a taco van up a mountain and I was being chased by Unidad.

SpoilerManaged to snag a couple of good deals. It's has a rather long but good related story concerning the prices. So if you want to just skip all that to the end, that's fine, just don't expect to find the same prices.
First item was that I finally snagged a WiiU wireless controller. It hung around for two reasons, first it was still tagged at $37 but I brought it to a scanner and it scanned for $15. The second was the box was completely mangled, one corner of the box was completely gone, the rest just beat and re-wrapped in tape. It looked like it was previous lodged inside a wood chipper. I thought to myself for a bit. Figured as long as the return policy was still good on it & if the electronics associate was cool we me opening it up right there after I bought it to check for damage. That way if there was damage, I wouldn't have a issue in returning it since I never left the store. I said what the hell I roll the dice. Took it over to the counter to ask, the guy said not to bother and was nice enough to open it there before I bought it to save me the hassle. Pulled out the controller and there was not a single mark on it, absolutely perfect. Told him I'd take it. After the guy scanned it, he was surprised by the price. He knew all the WiiU stuff was on clearance but didn't know it dropped that low. Told him it's because the WiiU is a dead system now thanks to the Switch. He got a chuckle and agreed with me on that and then also knocked off a couple of bucks on it since the box was mangled. In the end I got it a WiiU wireless controller $10.
The second pick up I got (same store & super cool associate of the month btw) was I found a old Marvel vs Capcom 3 SE for the PS3. Now I remembered seeing this lone copy there forever in the case, until one day a while back it just disappeared. Now months later I find it buried in their value rack/bin, wrapped in a spider wire , the slip cover just beat and worn, but I figure from what I could see the steelbook was still in good shape & I was hoping the slip cover protected it. So I took it over to the self scanner and it came up Not Found in System. Now normally I have no luck when it comes to NFS items. I always get either of the following 3 results when it comes to these things,
1. The plain old we can't sell it to you.
2. Want to charge the priced that it's marked(which wasn't applicable in this situation since it didn't have a price tag.)
3. Look up the original retail price of the item and want to charge me that.
So you can see why normally I wouldn't even bother, but again like the control I figured what the hell, let's take a shot. So after ringing up the controller, the associate scans this and I get the usual "Oh, that's weird." statement. He spends a minute trying to find it in the system no luck. He then looks up what I assume was it's retail price on release as after a moment he then says "Your kidding me? There's no way 9 year old game is going cost $70 bucks. You found this in the value rack right?" I told him yes and that truth be told I'm really only interested in it for it's steelbook, which is true as I plan on removing the game and putting my copy of UMvC3 for the PS4 in it. He then tells me to just give him a minute as he needs a floor manager to come over and issue a system override. We wait a few minutes as the manager drags their feet to show up. He tells the manager that it's coming up NFS, it was in the value rack and that he just needs a override for the price. He then asks me if $15 for it sounds good to me, I agree and he rings me out. Tells me to have a nice day, I thank him and
as I begin to walk out I quickly tell the manager that this guy deserves a raise as he was the single most helpful associate I've ever had at any Walmart. Oh just for reference and I did check the steelbook once I was in the car it in perfect shape the slip cover saved it.
So in the end I walked out with
WiiU wireless controller - $10
Marvel Capcom 3 SE - $15
All in all I say a good day
Man it is always nice to hear about a good WM employee. Most people want to hate on the store but I for the most part never have issues with them. I know some of them hate their jobs probably but every now and then you find one that is willing to actually help you and are nice about it.

Just got back from Ghost in the Shell. Thought it was pretty good. Beautiful visuals, decent story, and good action. I thought the acting was pretty decent all around, though people with a hateboner for Scarlett Johansson probably won't be swayed. As a big fan of the series as a whole I enjoyed it. I think a lot of the people shitting on it are forgetting that every incarnation of the GitS does things different and this is no exception. There is a lot of visual fanservice to the original 1995 movie, and a few things from the rest of the series as a whole. It's true that it doesn't have the same philosophical angle of the original, but I think this adaptation still brings something to the table on that front. At the very least it's better than the recent GitS Arise stuff.
We saw it in 3D IMAX and I think it was actually worth the extra money. Check it out if you've ever been a fan of the series, like sci-fi, or specifically like cyberpunk. Our screening was pretty light though, seems like it's probably going to do pretty poorly in the box office. Hopefully China or Blu-ray sales can save it, I'd like to see more from this creative team.
I can't wait to see GitS. I think the fans are asking for to much and or they are just pissy about it. I for one will see it and then judge it. I already preorered the BB steelbook. Although if the artwork for the Zavvi one holds I might get that one as well.
