depends on the vegetable!
Also, in this metaphor, the other steakhouses don't serve vegetables.

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.

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 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.

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.
