#13298926 $9.99 - $21 Final Fantasy and other Square PS1 games NEW at Amazon....

Posted by happydogs on 21 April 2016 - 09:10 AM

Dragonball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 is down to $7.99 new with Prime shipping.  Only a few copies left.


Ordered one.  12-year-old me would be very happy since this is a game I wanted badly but could never get my hands on, as it hadn't been released in NA until years after I grew out of the show.

Didn't care much for Ultimate Battle 22 back in the day.  Kind of sluggish and unresponsive.  On the other hand, Dragon Ball Z Legends, which came out around the same time, is probably still my favorite DBZ game ever.  Simplistic controls and gameplay, but super fast paced and so much fun to play.

What is a CAG but a miserable pile of cheap games that remain unplayed.

Early frontrunner for Post of the Year.

#13157780 Omikron The Nomad Soul - Free! With Coupon Code "omikron"

Posted by happydogs on 16 January 2016 - 10:44 PM

Code worked for me just fine.


I remember there being a lot of hate for this game, but i loved it.  Definitely one of those games that was, imho, better than the sum of its parts.  In a lot of ways it was like a low rent Shenmue, with a huge world to explore and numerous different gameplay modes.  Shenmue definitely looked and played better, but i loved Omikron's sci-fi/dystopia setting and visuals, and the music was phenomenal.  The shooting parts were (admittedly) pretty bad, and the fighting didn't hold a candle to Shenmue, but i enjoyed exploring the world even more than i did in Shenmue, and sometimes i'd just sit at my game and listen to the music(or go into a club just to watch a holographic concert of Bowie's outlawed band, The Dreamers).


If you're going to play it, just don't go into it expecting a AAA title, and try to appreciate it for its strengths rather than focusing on its flaws.

How to avoid shipping costs on Helldivers???

Yeah, that's all i wanted there, too.  If you have GCU, it should be $16 with free shipping at BB; i think that's what i'm gonna do.

As nice as free always sounds, the thing is: System Shock 2 is sold digitally on GoG + Steam.


And it's been bundled a bunch of times:


Actually, i wasn't aware of that.  I thought for awhile that it was one of those games that was just kind of lost to the ether.  Thanks, maybe i'll pick it up anyway.

Price breakdown of the sale so you don't end up paying more money for games that are normally less.

#12865328 Legend of Legacy: Launch Edition (3DS)

Posted by happydogs on 14 August 2015 - 05:23 PM

Will the CD play in my PsOne? Thx

Hell yeah.  If it's any good, you could even use it as a soundtrack for some of your other PSX games.  I used to take games that used Redbook audio(ie CD music tracks), pop the game out, and put in a music CD in to replace the in-game music with whatever i wanted.  Kicked ass playing Ridge Racer with a metal soundtrack.  Only catch was you had to put the game disc back in when you reached a new stage/area that required loading, or the game would freeze up.  In the aforementioned Ridge Racer, there was essentially only one track, so once it loaded, you could race while listening to the music of your choice to your heart's content.

#12633885 Otomedius Excellent Special Edition Xbox 360. Amazon $16.66/Prime

Posted by happydogs on 11 April 2015 - 06:23 AM

Fun game, though the MP is broken(couch co-op, at least).  My friend and i kept encountering a glitch in which one of us kept getting stuck on the bottom 1/3 of the screen.  Literally couldn't go any higher than that, and every time there was an obstacle, we'd crash into it and die.


That said, i think i paid $5 for the regular edition, and if i didn't already own it, i'd probably fork over the extra money for the SE.  I'm sure that pillowcase would make an interesting conversation piece...

#12358571 Buy $150 in Best Buy e-Gift Cards and Get a $15 savings code

Posted by happydogs on 25 December 2014 - 01:12 PM

Hmm I guess I could do in store pick up for a tv. I wouldn't want to walk in with 9 of these e-gift cards all for $150 lol. Legit but looks funny imo.

I didn't see anything in the fine print stating you couldn't gift the cards to yourself to benefit from the bonus credit, but you're right: they'd look at you funny for it.  Aside from that, the only consequence i could foresee would be that if enough people did this, they'd add the fine print to the deal the next time they did it(if they ever did it again).  Of course, if they did that, determined cheap asses would probably get away with using different credit cards and e-mail addresses to exploit it again. ^_^


Oh, and since this was the deal that finally convinced me to cave on buying a PS4:


Thanks, OP!
