The "I make a lot of money but get a rush when Gamestop gives me an extra 5% trade credit" takes are pretty gross guys.

What can I say life in your 40s is boring 😂
Seriously though anyone bragging about making money it’s always two things. Either they are lying or they haven’t made it very long. People that have made money for years don’t tell anyone. People that made their first six figure salary tell everyone including the person in line at the grocery store. It’s the old saying act like you’ve been there before.

if anyone is wondering why walmart always shows inventory where there is none it is because employees are lazy. 

i was lucky enough to find a store clearancing out last year and got a SF, MK, Galaga, Centipede all for $75. i could have taken more of each but why be greedy, let someone else have a find that too. When she went to ring it up she scanned the Galaga and put in a quantity of 4. i told her dont do that her inventory will show that she still has these other ones and she will get calls like crazy. it was like pulling teeth to get her to ring it up right, she really didnt want to. 

but that is why inventory is always wrong.

I grabbed the 2k19 version last year for 3 bucks, and played the Mycareer/story Mode. Nice story and good matches that took me around 3hs to finish, it was worth it to me. They say the Story Mode in 2k20 is the best one yet, so I might do the same. I have payed more for lesser experiences XD

As someone that has played every one for 20 years here is my take.
The my career mode is the best yet. The daily challenges are cool and the story is actually really good. This is also the first one in a while where your player gets pretty good quickly and you don’t need to do micro transactions to get decent. You still can but it’s not required.

They absolutely butchered the franchise mode. They put in a new system where you can only do a few actions a week. It’s supposed to be more realistic but what it ends up is something that you can do micro transactions to get around

Overall if you have 2k19 and don’t have an interest in my career mode it’s not worth it.

anyone use the may coupon in store yet? I am assuming it still works for xbox currency?

I used mine today on switch currency and it worked fine.

Friends don't let friends buy Bad Dudes.


I just reviewed eight of these games on my blog. Definitely get Nitro Ball! It's Smash TV meets pinball! Heavy Barrel is a military combat game, similar to Ikari Warriors but with better weapons. Sly Spy is hilarious in its shameless theft of elements from the James Bond movies. Night Slashers you already have. The others I could take or leave.

Shut your face about bad dudes. You couldn’t even rescue President Ronnie.

Beat Saber for $15 is a no brainer. I'm finally gonna pick that up.

Can we just put a moratorium on April fools jokes this year. They’re not funny any other year, but this year considering the situation I would rather not have false hope about anything.

I did the trade-in in store of my old x and got the new x with nba 2k19. We tried about four different controller colors just to see if it would work but only the white ones zeroed out. $25 for the new one with a warranty and a controller is awesome.

Ha! So did I! Right after flippageddon stuff happened, I was learning and learned about BB flips and then to the to Disney cards. Most park expenses and airfare I covered. The hotel I just got cheap though.

If I ever do strike it rich I'm gonna stay w my family at the Grand Californian and have the best trip ever. Someday...

if you ever wanna stay at any of those cheaper just rent people DVC points. We are staying at the Polynesian this coming May and it’s only costing us 2K for eight days.

Let me guess, you're one of those people who says they make $200k+/year.

It's okay to be happy for other people you know. Dont need to crap on their parade if they think that's a respectable amount.

Even if the troll made 200k a year that is still about $65 after taxes an hour. Which is pretty much what this guy made at GameStop in funny money.
I make good money at my job but I do this for fun and because any money that comes from check usually goes in kids college fund or some other bill. This I can make purchases anytime I won’t without caring about what I spend.

Nice. Maybe I’ll be cursing at you stuck in traffic on Woodruff Road someday. ;)

God there are a lot cags in Greenville. Must be why the Walmart clearance is gone so quickly.

Freezing, crashing, constantly disconnecting brand new/battery wireless controllers 2 feet from the console with no obstacles, overheating (which has been determined to do with thermal paste issue with the One X). Not saying they all have those issues but after having major probs with 3 straight, I'm likely out until next gen. I'm sure many have had no issues with their X and that's great. But I'm likely not taking anymore chances. Two of those consoles couldn't even get through the initial powering on/sign up without freezing several times.

Of the 3 One X consoles I had major problems with (and returned), 2 were bought in the Fall of 2018. The 3rd was bought 3 months ago. The Shadow of Tomb Raider bundle (the worst offender) constantly would power off at startup, refused to load games at times from brand new disc, and more.

I believe you, I had a friend that went through 3 original wii’s. He’s the only person I’ve ever heard of with them going bad. But he had issues with 3. Sometimes you just get bad luck my friend.

Been here since 2003 , I remember when this place was all corn fields .

(in my best dana carvey voice)I remember when i first got here all i had was my gamecube, ps2 and original xbox. not this newfangled 48k TV 2 gigawatt hard drive mess you kids play. Your controllers had long cords and your memory cards plugged into the system, and if you wanted to turn on the system you had to stand up. If there was a new map or character for a game you didn't download a patch, you got your ass over to gamecrazy and bought the damn new version. 


That's the way it was and we liked it!
