#14425891 The Gamestop Thread

The only price that really matters is the recent sold prices on ebay.


I just watched a black PS4 Pro with 1 controller and 24 games go for $355 on eBay, free shipping. Someone bought it for that.

Most of the games weren't quite $1 games, but weren't ones worth $20, either.

Last week one of my best friends declared to me with a straight face  "Anything above 60 frames per second is imperceptible to the human eye".  I laughed.  He became irritated and demanded an explanation.  But in actuality he just wanted to tell his side.  It was then apparently my job to explain to him how people doing competitive e-sports gaming have been buying 240hz 1080p freesync displays and there was actually a new 360hz model this year.  All while he didn't care and refused to listen.

I stand by my assertion that all this RT stuff is useless hype for people to justify their 3080 purchase and most gamers don't care nor will they use or see useful RT in action for a good 5-10 years.

Driven by hunger, a Fox tried to reach some grapes hanging high on the vine. Although he leaped with all his strength, he couldn't manage to reach the grapes. As he went away, the Fox remarked, 'Oh, you aren't even ripe yet! I don't need any sour grapes.'

So glad I never played WoW. If there were new Ultima Online expansions dropping every other year I doubt I would be able to hold down a job and have a family...

WoW is very 'quit-able.'  They have done a good job at making smaller (5-man content) more meaningful over the years but, other than raiding, it is mostly a mount and pet collecting simulator.  Never mind they put all the best stuff in microtransactions for sale in the WoW store.  Yes, microtransactions in a game with a monthly sub.

I'm actually pretty thankful for the $5 off $30.  Has me considering stuff like Ys VIII and Div OS2.

The $5 off is one-time and for not multiple checkouts, correct?

Terms say that it's valid on your first qualifying purchase, so it should be one-time use only.

 

Also, it's worth mentioning that the next Humble Choice goes live next Friday. Might be a good idea to wait and see what's in that since you'll still have six days left in the Summer Sale.

I always like hearing about kids watching horror movies.

 

My earliest movie memory was of a horror movie I saw when I was 3-4.

1983, I was seven. My parents wanted to go to the movies to see "Easy Money"; I didn't. They obliged me and left me at my grandparents (which was actually just the apartment upstairs), under the care of my nine-years-older cousin. My grandparents had "On TV", the cable 'precursor' and said cousin, decided that she and I should watch a movie. That movie: "Creepshow". Two of the vignettes stick out "The Crate" (the only one I remembered by name) and  "They're Creeping Up on You". "The Crate" was standard 'boogeyman' type fare, with something scary lurking in the shadows. Okay, that was bad. But "Creeping" was the one that really got to me. Three years prior, just before my fourth birthday, we had moved into a new building (same one referenced above). Well, the people before us apparently were *really* dirty and the building was infested with roaches. It took several days for us to get Orkin in and, in the meantime, we had to live with roaches. The thing about them scattering when the lights come on is real. They would be everywhere, like it was a roach Disneyland. 

Orkin did their thing and over the course of a few weeks, the problem was eliminated, but the memory remained. "Creeping" brought all that back to my immediate mind and I was terrified to be in the house, thinking that, this time, the roaches would win; crawling into my mouth while sleeping and kill me from the inside. I *still* get freaked out about it today, even though we joked about "i Finally got my cake" from 'Father's Day' back in middle school. Just cant shake it....

Persona 4 Golden is cool and I'm glad it's no longer trapped on the Vita but I already played it for hundreds of hours. Disappointed there was no news on Judgment, Yakuza 6, or Horizon Zero Dawn.

The Steam version of Amalur went on sale plenty of times.  I believe I got it for $5 years ago.  Not sure what a re-master is going to do....  the game is laughably easy, even on the hardest difficulty.  The game world is sterile and empty and smacks of Curt Schilling wanting to make his own World of Warcraft (many of the 'zones' ape WoW so much it's staggering).  In short, it's hyper-generic despite the fun combat.  It is, at best, an unfinished budget title that should have been priced around $15 retail.

Man, I wish the Joystiq article was still online about this.

(Link redirects to Engadget main page now - OG link: http://www.joystiq.c...pre-production/).

 

BHG (Big Huge Games) made KOA:R, not 38 Studios.

 

38 Studios (in Rhode Island) was busy working on Copernicus (KOA MMO) for 5 years. 38 Studios did not work on the assets or much of anything for KOA:R.

 

BHG reworked Ascendant (a cancelled game with THQ, after THQ folded) to fit into KOA IP, once Curt bought out BHG.

 

Supposedly, at least $105 million was spent on Copernicus alone - https://www.gamespot...y/1100-6388664/

 

Some quotes from Joystiq article:

Speaking to former Big Huge Games employees, we asked what they felt was the most inaccurate portrayal of the 38 Studios implosion by the media. They expressed that Reckoning's development being tied to 38 Studios Rhode Island has been the biggest gaffe.

 

Former BHG employees repeatedly tell Joystiq that 38 Rhode Island did give info and guidance about the Amalur IP, but it didn't produce any assets for Reckoning. In terms of the day-to-day work, the Rhode Island team "didn't work on it at all."

"Reckoning was developed with EA publishing money, NOT Rhode Island tax dollars," a former BHG employee told us. "It had nothing to do with the $50 million dollars from RI. That money went directly to the MMO project."

Mafia 3:

 

I've had it on the PC for a while. I'll share some thoughts.

 

Once you get beyond the game's first great 3 linear hours or so with great storytelling, presentation, and immersion - the game unfortunately opens up itself too much, turning more into a UbiSoft open-world template here with meaningless collect-a-thons, destroy-a-thons, fetch quests, and other MMO-like quests (Kill X guys, defeat X guys, go to X areas, etc) than say a GTA game normally does (barring GTA: Online).

 

Yeah, GTA has some of these MMO-like quests, sure...but they actually often have interesting and crafted missions; I'm not counting GTA: Online here though. Unfortunately, a lot of the great storytelling & presentation gets broken-up way too much b/c it's at odds w/ the game's grind-y open-world stuff.

 

I highly recommend M3's DLC's/Season Pass because once the game opens up...you really need the DLC's to break-up a lot of the grind and UbiSoft open-world MMO-quest-a-thon. There's a more lot more mission types and variety of gameplay in the DLC's - i.e. for example, Faster Baby DLC has some vehicular combat type of missions.

The modern day AC stuff is essentially the ketchup on the AssCreed pizza.

 

Incidentally, I've been playing AC: Origins again to do all the DLC stuff and that game always had the distinction of being the only modern-day Ubisoft game where I haven't glitched through the bottom of the game world. Well, not anymore!

I just learned that Square Enix has a bundle on Steam: "Square Enix Stay Home & Play JRPG Collection" for $49.84. It has Dragon Quest XI, Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age, Oninaki, and Chrono Trigger. If you're missing just Oninaki, it can be purchased for $14.24. Good thing I saw it, as I was about to pay more on another store.
