#13401070 Ghostbusters Reboot 2016!

Posted by hiccupleftovers on 13 July 2016 - 10:37 PM

Saw it yesterday at a screening. It was terrible. The jokes fall flat. Best thing about it was that it was free. The cameos were nice, but pulled you out of the film and made you miss the originals that much more/make you remember how much better the originals are. Feig did a terrible job and it shows that he either doesn't like the property or had an axe to grind or something. I just didn't think he would make this bad a movie.

#12053122 Sunday Ad Video Game Deals (9/7 to 9/13)

Posted by hiccupleftovers on 31 August 2014 - 12:04 AM

Nope. No post purchase PMing to other retailers but you can post purchase for 14 days to BBY price. 30 if elite and 45 if elite plus

When did they makes this change? I hadn't heard about this. This is terrible if this is the case. Blech on BB. 

 

Hoping BB or someone else throws out a deal on Destiny. Have a preorder with Target for a $1, plus I guess I'm due $5 with their preordering thing now, but I'd prefer some discount or gift card plus the cokes (really lame that retailers have started doing these sorts of deals instead of an actual discount for people buying the game release week. Another reason to take a step back from this gen of games and stick to older games or PC games (screw DLC BTW).

There'll be a ton of these. Sits back and watches prices plummet. Game companies setting themselves up for the comic book store crash 2.0


#12010921 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XIII

It can be anywhere from game only in beat up but playable shape to complete and pristine.  Grading for acceptable is all over the board because any bit of missing packaging can knock and otherwise LN item down to A if the grader feels like it.  I've received multiple brand new things from AWD over the last year that were graded at A and an equal number of complete messes.

 

Thanks. I just saw this post in response to my question from earlier. Hopefully the stuff I ordered as Good and A come out as LN or new/sealed as some others have been receiving. Shoot, getting a box with some of what i orderd would be a huge plus by itself.

And I can vouch for another success story at Walmart!!! Went to the ghetto walmart again, but who cares, they're the only ones left with enough stock to mix and match what you could want from this deal. Picked up another 6 games (5 for my brother and 1 for me that I'll split the cost with him). Wahoo! It took more convincing this time, but in the end it worked out. Had to go through the cantankerous pain in the ass old fogey that thinks she knows and has seen everything since she's been working at Walmart for 10+ years, another cashier, and 4 managers (1 assistant, 1 covering for a manager, an actual manager of some sort, and then the real manager, who was the youngest of all and who I could have dated it seems) to go through. And boy, did they try to pick apart the BB ad and the walmart site/their own policy to pieces. Tried to see if there was a limit as to how many times I could PM/do the deal, etc.  Had to explain that the reason for the 29.99-39.99 was that they were all msrp, but different prices that matched exactly what walmart was selling them at. Had to show them the BB page with all the game msrp prices that shows the BOGO on the site.

 

Now unless any other family members or friends want anything, I'm good for this sale. (I kind of want Mario Party to round out the deal for any 3DS game I don't have, but I have nothing else to go along with it and no one who wants anything).

 

Word of warning from the wise to those still trying to get the games/deal, make sure you come very, very prepared. Be calm, collected, clear, and friendly when speaking to them. Most people working there know they PM, but don't know the how or the why or anything else about it. Have the walmart policy prepped on your phone, the actual physical BB ad, and the site page that shows the games are BOGO on BB with their MSRP prices. As long as you don't blow up, say something stupid or do something stupid, your persistence should work out in the end as it's all in the policy. A lot of the people who work at Walmart don't even know their own policies or have read them, so it'll even be like you educating them.

too much work for cheapy D. he wouldn't even promote new mods, when there are only 2-3 mods still active. half the time, the mods does not even want to deal with our non-senses on this forum, because they are sick of the same crap.

 

This site has been desperately needing new/additional mods for a long time. It's one of the reasons I prefer just to lurk. I used to post a lot more and get involved in discussion.

Expansion has not been announced for consoles so I'd say you're safe.

 

I think I read somewhere (IGN) that the console versions were in the works (or at least the 360 version).




#11735956 MGS: Ground Zeroes- $24.99 all platforms (best buy and amazon)

Posted by hiccupleftovers on 05 May 2014 - 07:04 AM

Eh... screw konami. Worse than Activision with this shit. Waiting for $10 and less and especially used.

 

There are videos showing how you could theoretically beat the game in 10 mins. Yeah, this can wait. It'll be in every dump bin soon.




#7597225 Megazell's Free And Legal PC Games List!

City Of Heroes was one of the few games that I devoted a lot of time to it. I spoke about it in another thread here on CAG. To this day it has a lot of good things going like the ability to exmp down to an earlier level so that you can play with a new player/friend without them getting a negative penalty. I believe all MMORPG should have that. When they took out base raids it was a dead game for me and my crew.

Hopefully, Champions whets my appetite for sci-fi MMORPG gaming because a lot of other MMORPGs are great but sooner or later because they are fantasy based I lose interest.


Same here. I've been continually searching for a good, non fantasy based MMO to occupy my time a bit from the usual WoW. I loved the character customization, and like I you said, the team that worked on CoH - for lack of inspiration or some other reason - began to nerf and alter core gameplay mechanics which gamers/users loved and really enjoyed. I used to PL/play with my cousins and lots of other people because you could go down that level. Base raids were major fun and I loved how if you were a good, decent tank you could round up/corral an entire level for your group, bringing them back to the start and then just pummel on them without having to run through the level as much.

By the way, that Last Stand game sounds brilliant. I can't believe that concept hasn't been pushed harder in the FPS scene - the merger of a tower defense game and FPS. It just sounds like the perfect combination. Even if that Digipen team didn't execute to the level of a multi-million dollar team, the concept alone sounds fascinating and I can't wait until I test it out now.

You mentioned you donated some funds to some of these indie developers, I hope you don't mind my asking, but which ones did you choose?
