Which Router? I've been thinking about getting a new one as well.


Almost certainly the Asus AC5300. (Overkill? Yes!)

Damn, looks like the Master Edition isn't up at either place now?  Hope Best Buy gets it.  I should've looked here last night!




#13596324 Nintendo Switch Revealed

Posted by Rig on 13 January 2017 - 02:19 PM

As a Nintendo fanboy (at heart), I was extremely let down.

 

$300:  I actually figured that was the price.  I wanted $250, but deep down, I thought it would be $300. 

 

My non-gaming wife watched with me last night.  She (and I) both agreed that 1, 2, Switch and Arms look pretty crappy.  They look like pack-in games, not full retail. 

 

I got very, very hyped for Splatoon 2.  I went S+ on the original and played the hell out of it.  I *have* to get a Switch for it now, but definitely not anytime soon since Splatoon 2 is "summer 2017".

 

I agree with Vinny:  I thought the NYC-esque Mario portions looked awful.  Once he got out of the city looking area, it looked great.

 

Looking like a bad launch.  Launching with Zelda, which also is on the Wii U....and that's it?  Not good.

:wii: Skylanders SuperChargers Dark Edition Starter Pack - $14.99 at TRU

 

Only way to get the Dark Bowser Amiibo. Orders over $19 ship free.

Thanks for this.  I put a store pickup order in.  Will sell off the rest of the stuff that's included with it.




#13574634 The General eBay Rant Thread

Posted by Rig on 22 December 2016 - 03:07 PM

Based on some other posts I saw here and a phone call to eBay, I asked the seller for pictures. Can someone explain to me how a videogame console such as a CD-I allegedly loses all of it's security bits in shipping? Not to mention how the display could fall out when the whole thing was wrapped tightly in a ton of bubble wrap. And the opposite side face plate is now sticking out. This stinks to high heaven. 

 

EDIT: also I see now the guy that bought this apparently has some history in the CD-I scene. Basically, I'm sure this has been stripped for parts and he expects to send it back. Sigh.

That sucks.  Yeah, it absolutely sounds like they picked it up to snag some parts and want to send you back a shell (or non-working parts). 

Did you happen to get a picture of your serial # before sending?  Is it different in the photos they provided?  I dunno if that would help you during the investigation or not.  (I wouldn't mention it to the buyer, but maybe to PayPal/eBay.)

#13565669 Download Lost Odyssey for free! For real this time! (Deal is dead, no...

Posted by Rig on 14 December 2016 - 09:25 PM

I absolutely loved Lost Odyssey.  Very, very good RPG.

 

Isn't Blue Dragon supposed to be free, also?  I don't see it out there free yet.

 

EDIT:  Nevermind.  I didn't read the article properly.  Blue Dragon is just "available digitally".  Not free.

I have shipped all ten or so products from Amiami via the SAL.  Always been gutsy/cheap enough to do SAL unregistered.  I've never had a single problem with any of my orders arriving damaged or the like.  All the boxes are great.  Order usually shows up between 2-3 weeks, and I live in IL.

I love the idea of merging the market.  Phase out 3DS support, and go all-in with this.  One platform.  They continue to succeed with handhelds, but struggle at home.  Mixing the two is likely their best bet to thrive.

 

Hopefully, we finally get a full-fledged Pokemon adventure up on the TV.  (Yes, I realize this would be several years out.)

I love the look of the Zelda, but not so much the Link.  The items Link comes with sounds awesome though.




#13464700 Street Fighter Funko Pops Preorders

Posted by Rig on 20 September 2016 - 08:29 PM

I'm a kidrobot retailer and it makes me sad when people buy pops lol.

Get me a few boxes of S2 Futurama!  I never got any, and they aren't available anymore!  :(

 

I hate Funko Pop figures.  Been a Kidrobot collector for a while now.  Pop figures are so bland and there's a bloody billion of them.  (IMO.)
