Planning on building a new PC before Christmas.  Is there any store besides Newegg that I should be looking out for this BF/Cyber Monday?

#13792272 Marvel vs Capcom Infinite $28.99 PCDD Via CDKEYS.COM

I downloaded the story mode demo and was completely turned off. I hate the art direction and the roster pales in comparison to past entries. Maybe it will turn around but currently I'm most likely going to skip this one except for maybe $20 down the line.

 

nice avatar btw Muse

Ya this roster looks terrible.  Not having Wolverine, Magneto, Doom, or anybody else from those series is ridiculous.  Instead we get Captain-who gives a Fuck- Marvel.




#13579091 Best Buy Ad 12/25-12/31: 50% Trade-In Bonus on XB1/PS4 games

Posted by rentacop on 27 December 2016 - 02:40 AM

Congratulations, you traded most of the newest video games out everyone is playing.........  What's the point of even buying video games if you're going to trade them all in, New Age gamers makes no sense to me......

 

They buy an insane amount of games they will never play, huge backlog and then just trade them in.......

What's the point of keeping games if you're not going to play them before they tank to bargain bin prices?  I bought BF1 with the B1G1 40% deal from early last month.  Also preordered TLG with the Visa checkout deal from around BF.  I just straight up bought Skyrim with a $25 gift card + the difference, walked across the parking lot, and traded it in to BBY for $40.  Better than putting BF1 on the shelf and watching the TIV drop to a quarter.

 

Not everybody buys games, doesn't play them, and trades them in.  Well, except for situations like Skyrim right now. :P

Everyone who is hating on Best Buy for failing line management should really re-focus their blame on Nintendo for creating artificial scarcity, again.

They probably should do something like just put up a rope to signify the line.  Or like have one employee randomly give out tickets in the middle of the night.  Nintendo obviously deserves most of the blame but you shouldn't have customers getting screwed over despite waiting all night.

The last fucking ticket was given out two people ahead of me... we are all livid

Eh, if you saw the people waiting in cars all night you guys should have come up with a plan to stick together.  Even if it means single file uncomfortably close together.  People trying to skip the line have absolutely nothing to lose so of course they're going to try.

Here comes the bullshit. After sitting in their cars overnight while people stood in line for hours customers are walking up and taking spots in front of the line. And we are all mad

Back when I got my Wii in 2006, the way we prevented this was having the person at the very front of the line who happened to be an employee keep a record of the names and spots of everybody in line.  Then they markered our hand with our spot.  Worked out pretty well to deter anybody from skipping since all 66 of us were basically 1 group.

Tempted to drive 20 minutes to my local BBY just to see if anybody is there lol.  Have nothing else to do out there though so don't feel like wasting a trip if there's already like 30 people in line.

 

I'm in a pretty rural area and it's nearly 0 out.  Plus this isn't like launch Wii or anything, it's just a restock at one store so maybe it's not as widely known.




#13563544 Limited Run Games Thread - The Switch is on!

Posted by rentacop on 13 December 2016 - 02:05 AM

I wonder if anyone will actually get anything other than One Way... my copy was supposed to come today but USPS missed the delivery date. Still no shipment confirm on my PS4 orders and at this rate they won't get here until after I come back from vacation.:-/ 

So far it looks like if you got 1 blind box it's One Way and if you got 2 it's One Way + Octodad. lol

Is tropical freeze any good? Pretty much the only DK country game I haven't played. Very tempted at this price though

It's maybe the best platformer I've ever played, complete serious.

life definitely does not suck as a kid, and there is no reason a kid needs to learn that there are such horrible people as a scalper at such a young age. 

How are scalpers horrible?  They're basically doing what the stores do LOL.  And it's not even like it's kids who are next in line behind the scalpers.  It's entitled fanboys who wouldn't even care at all about this stuff if it wasn't limited.

 

If you hate high prices then blame the people who just need this shit.  I bought both the MM LE and MM XL intending on opening both and keeping them for years but now seeing the LE going for 140+ and the XL 400+ is making me lean heavily towards selling both.  After fees and shit that's like $250 for doing nothing.  Did the same thing when I bought RCR for PS4.  Thought it was cool enough to pickup and keep at $25 until the prices got stupid.

Posted by rentacop on 03 February 2015 - 08:20 AM

2010 and 2011 were the best years of K-Mart in regards of gaming.

 

If anyone remembered Josh aka SHC-Gamer, he was busting out deals left and right

 

However, bad customer service at most locations and some people abused the coupon system which made K-Mart meh again.

Yep I remember going there every couple weeks to get a new game to keep the coupon train rolling.  Wasn't until GCU that I had that same urge to pickup new releases.

I ordered from Gamestop.com my MM N3DS XL and MH4U N3DS XL, but they are separate orders. I wanted to combine the orders so I don't have to pay double shipping. When I called in to Gamestop customer service they wouldn't let me do a simple process like that. This is why Gamestop sucks please stop giving them exclusive crap so I can order from better retailers.

Some guys just have no luck.

The no charger thing really is a first for me.  It just seems random to do it now.  $200 seems more than fair to give us the whole package, electronic and charger.

Obviously a college student, you still have that "Well Im in college so I know how everything works" mentality that you hopefully grow out of when you get older and realize that the world isnt black and white, and that you dont really know shit about shit.

I guess being a big time college student and having a job has limited your ability to actually think or consider things.

Ever stop to think......

1- Maybe not everyone has a job where they get access to the internet while working?

2- Maybe people can get so busy some days they dont have time to check a video game forum?

3- Maybe some people actually work while they are at work?

4- Not everyone has a job exactly like yours?

Or any of a dozen reasons why not every single person on the planet cant always constantly be online looking for video game deals as to not miss a single one while they are working?

Hey Mr. Adult, it's a fucking plastic figure.  One that you can easily purchase from Ebay if it's that important to you.
