#13486636 Target Clearance Thread XXII

For anybody who ends up with the 12GB Super Slim, here are some big cheap hard drives on Amazon: https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1


You can stick one of those in one of these, if you want to be a paladin about it: https://www.amazon.c...1?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Saw that the 12GB PS3 slim dropped to $100 today. DPCI.# 207-23-1403

Scored one in King of Prussia, PA. BrickSeek said that they had 13 of them, but none of them were out front, and the folks in the store were only able to find two in the back. So there's at least one still there as of an hour ago, and there could well be like 10 more hiding on some lonely pallet (or not).


Personally, I feel good about grabbing one at this price, rather than playing chicken with a possibly-even-lower price. Thanks, fellow CAGs!

Receipt image here, for the skeptical:

So, I have a 30% off birthday "coupon" from Nintendo. It can only be used on one full priced item. To maximize the savings, I intend to buy the highest priced digital only game that has little to no chance of seeing any (or any significant) sales (and of course one I also want). My short list is:


Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice

Picross 3D Round 2

Rhythm Heaven Megamix

love the Rhythm Heaven series, and Megamix is a worthy entry.


It's currently the only way to play a bunch of the games from the Japanese original in English, and it's got some of the best ones from the DS and Wii entries (as well as a bunch of new ones), and there's even an absolutely brutal endgame with up-tempo challenges.They're easily the hardest stuff in the entire series, if you're into that kind of thing. Plus there's local co-op, plus a minigame where you feed turnips to a goat using a pachinko machine, plus various other gleeful weirdness.


It's pure joy.

#13472189 [Deal Expired] Save $25 On Any IndieBox Subscription

Posted by mokmoof on 28 September 2016 - 01:24 PM

We have some of our past boxes available on our store: store.theindiebox.com  :D

Well, if this month's package is delightful, then maybe I'll journey into the past a bit. :D

Yeah, I got the Stanley Parable. Pretty good box, and the case is a lot better than the Hand of Fate paper case the month before. Not much of a PC gamer though (I play most everything on PS4 and just subscribe to the box cuz I'm a huge indie fan) so I just really enjoyed the USBs as collectibles, never actually tried to use them to play a game with.

Those do look very neat. I have zero interest in physical copies of games (though the DRM-free aspect is certainly a good thing). The swag and the sometimes-displayable box seem like the bigger draw for me.

Thanks, OP. Reviews looked solid. Snagged one.

Thanks, Frisky. Might trade in my physical Majora's Mask and get it digital.


Also considering Rainbow Curse. Good stuff? The aesthetic looks really neat.

#13006735 $15 off $50 at Amazon by using Amex membership rewards.

Posted by mokmoof on 04 November 2015 - 09:40 PM

Keep in mind the amex points for amazon credit isn't a 1:1 exchange rate.

A $35 dollar item on Amazon would normally cost 50,000 points.

So a person is better off using 50,000 points to get a $50 gift card at a retail store.

Not sure if it's because of my specific card or what, but the exchange is actually a little better for me if I use Shop With Points at Amazon. A straight-up $50 AmEx gift card is 10,000 points, but my 9,269 points are $64.88.


So that, plus this $15, plus the secret $25 off for Prime members, starts to make the Uncharted PS4 Bundle kinda tempting.

Can I get a link to the Splatoon deal? I can't seem to find it and I would love to go PM this at Best Buy after work today. 


#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.



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.
