#14384040 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Josh5890 on 13 March 2021 - 02:57 AM

 

This cannot be understated. I am in the shipping business and the bottlenecks are horrible. LA/Long Beach for example is the epicenter of all the problems. There are easily a couple dozen ships waiting to dock. After than, the average sitting time at the port for a dry import container is 30 days before it moves. Other ports have been getting worse as a result. On the east coast Montreal is on the verge of a port strike as their CBA is expiring and that will cause a ripple effect across the board. Trucker shortages were an issue in the US even before COVID, now it is even worse. A lot of talk about next gen console shortages has been towards computer chips and other resource shortages, but transportation issues can take some of the blame as well.

 

Things are starting to get better. Terminal workers in LA are scheduled to get vaccinated starting this week. Unfortunately it is going to be months before things get back to normal.

Yes. They also don't come with trading cards, in case that's something you're interested in.

 

Wow so I just did a Google search and it turns out my Windjammers is different from other ones. Oh well I won't cry about it. I'm just glad to have a physical copy.

 

I knew about the trading cards, but considering I only have one LRG copy it isn't a big deal I collect enough stuff.




#14379012 Best Buy GCU to be discontinued 3-1-2021

Posted by Josh5890 on 20 February 2021 - 04:54 PM

Losing GCU was the worst, but really the best thing that could of happened to me. I went from impulse buying dozens of games day 1 to buying almost nothing at launch. Now most of my purchases have been on Black Friday the past two years.

 

My collection isn't as big as it probably would be, but neither is my backlog!

I saw the bump and my heart skipped a beat




#14063168 How safe is ebay for buying Nintendo 64 games?

Posted by Josh5890 on 08 October 2018 - 02:56 AM

So I'm trying to rebuild a few missing games from my 64 collection. I started perusing ebay and was surprised that the prices were cheaper that I thought they would be, and several copies are each. Are there a lot of fakes out there or am I just over thinking it?




#13889522 Black Friday 2017 - The Epic Master Thread

Posted by Josh5890 on 24 November 2017 - 04:31 AM

It's basically the first six games of the series, so it's the perfect place to start.  ;)

 

Additional deets: http://www.ign.com/a...s-actually-mean

 

 

Yeah that's a great way to get into it. It's got everything except the stuff in 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (which you don't need to worry about until you decide you're a big enough fan after playing the stuff in this one). 1, 2, and Birth by Sleep are all in here, which are considered the best three games.

 

Cool. Thanks sounds like an easy $20 purchase

So since I can't get Disgaea tonight (I'm not going out) I'm thinking about getting Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 instead. I've never touched the series before would this be a good start?

Do you mean like @ Best Buy for $35 and $30 Respectively?

 

Check the PC tab in the spreadsheet I added to the wiki.

Sweet. I wish I could get one of these now. I just purchased a 1070 this week and I'm dying to really give it a spin. I can wait two more weeks.




#13412057 Best Buy $10 Reward Certificates Pre-order Promo. (2016)

Posted by Josh5890 on 24 July 2016 - 10:13 PM

I know I am in the minority here , and probably by a mile but PC gamers are getting shafted here. NBA, Final Fantasy, and Gears don't get a PC version. CoD, Battlefield, and Titanfall get a vanilla release but not the deluxe versions. Why can't Best Buy at least offer download codes for these games to get the $10?

People still have cable? I guess there are stupid people in the world.

Live sporting events is the only thing keeping cable afloat in this country.
