#12823330 EVGA GeForce GTX 980 K|NGP|N ACX 2.0+ with MGS5 Voucher - $499.99 via EVGA

Posted by mokmoof on 23 July 2015 - 06:35 PM

What is the regular price on this thing? 

 

if memory serves me right, arent the 80's always around 650? 

Also, I have a 780. I wonder if the upgrade is even worth it. 

I'd tend to say no, at least until we have some hard data on what the early days of DX12 are going to look like (and maybe until we're well and truly into the DX12 era).

There's still missions and stuff in Black Flag and a lot of them are hella tedious crap like "Follow these guys and listen to their boring-ass conversation for seven minutes as you duck from shrub to shrub... oh!  got caught?  Now do it again!"

 

But the pirating is a bunches of fun and once you get far enough to unlock the open map, there's lots to do with finding buried treasures and secret grottoes and capturing Man o' Wars.

 

There's "animus fragments" in the game for people who just love collecting stuff but they're not tied to the story nor required.

Hmmm. Fair enough. I'll bet the good parts would be worth suffering through the bad parts. (I liked Shadow of Mordor, after all).

Should have seen EU III, if I recall it had two (differently named) "complete versions," and the 2nd one still didn't have all the expansions ><. 

Yeah, that held me back from getting into CK2 for a long time too. I love those games, but the piecemeal DLC does drive me nuts. At least with EU and CK the additions are really substantial ones in a lot of cases.

Even the Borderlands 2 GOTY doesn't have everything for Borderlands 2.

Jeez.

 

Maybe it's just me, but if I'm going to spend a dime after launch, I just kind of want to buy everything I care about at a throw (like the Shadow of Mordor GOTY Upgrade, or the SRIV GOTC Upgrade, or what have you).

Well, I guess there was some other gift cards in there too, if I really think about it.  Bing probably only paid 70% if I really do the math.

 

Card's great though.  Really happy with it so far!

I just grabbed a 970 myself, and it's slaying everything (at 1080p, anyway), Witcher 3 included.

I don't see it on the front page, but Shadow of Mordor is 50% off, and so is the GOTY Upgrade. That makes the upgrade $5, the cheapest it's been so far: http://store.steampo...com/app/318550/

 

Edit: Seeing it there now.

Hmmm. I want the BTA tier, but I have the whole $1 tier. Anybody splitting these up?




#12411148 New Nintendo 3DS Bundles up for Preorder at Gamestop, Best Buy, Target! (...

Posted by mokmoof on 14 January 2015 - 07:47 PM

I will for the saves, but it won't transfer any games, or licenses. Well at least it hasn't in the past. Nintendo really needs to fix this! In a world where I can buy an app and re-download over and over again. It should tie to your Nintendo ID not the console, but There is money to be made.

They're leaving money on the table, most likely, between general reduced consumer confidence and alienating those wonderful weirdos who want to own and use every hardware revision.

OK VIP Price on Shadow of Mordor (~$25), but my CAGness can't let me pull the trigger when I missed it for $20 at Nuuvem and Amazon. Ah, well.




#12281708 Best Buy Black Friday AD Preview [LIVE Now!]

Posted by mokmoof on 28 November 2014 - 08:14 PM

So here's something cool.

 

I went into the BestBuy on Roosevelt in Chicago, and saw that the three-packs of $10 eShop cards were listed as "free" for Black Friday.

 

I showed that to customer service, and they confirmed that the deal was legit: brave BB on Black Friday, get $30 in eShop credit for free (until they run out of cards). The CS guy had to penny it out manually, and he said it was one per customer, so this is very likely YMMV. But worth a shot! I'll probably try one or two other locations right now.

My guess? Missingno :P

Gotta click 'em all!

 

Just click the survey and you'll find out. Happens from time to time.

That's what's weird:

I haven't registered my 2DS (on the off-chance that there's another free game promotion), so maybe that's what it wants me to link?

Nintendo offers a way to pre-order the digital version of Super Smash Bros. from their website. You just get a code when it's released, but this is an interesting development.

Interesting indeed. The weirdest thing about it is that there doesn't seem to be a way to pay with eShop credit. Just credit cards.

I can confirm that Donkey Kong ['94] holds up remarkably well, and Kirby's Dream Course is one of my all-time favorites. Great singleplayer--nothing like it, really--and my dad and I played a lot of the VS mode together back in the day.

 

That said, I am awfully glad that I grabbed that Pikmin bag when I did. :P

Man, serious thanks to everybody who helped convince me to pick up Super Mario 3D Land. SO GOOD.

 

And no spoilers or anything, but the sheer quantity (and variety) of endgame content was a really nice surprise.

As someone who hates Ocarina of Time and loves A Link Between Worlds, will I like the original Zelda?

There's a very strong chance you'll love it. It doesn't hold your hand, there're no chaperone character (no fairy, no ship, no talking hat). It forces you to manage your resources, to make fucking heartbreaking decisions with rupees. It lets you make mistakes and get lost. It's pure uncut no-bullshit Zelda, and while there are other Zelda games I like a lot, none of them is quite like the first.

 

So Jealous seriously......US Club Nintendo sucks

That Pikmin keyring is delightful, and I'm bummed about how delightful it is.
