I was at two separate stores today, no sign of a proday sale at either. Where did you see there was going to be a sale?

As much as I can appreciate why BB is trying to do this with Total Tech, it really seems like BB is rolling this out terribly while angering many of its most loyal shoppers.


I had already qualified for Elite Plus through the end of 2023 and had it taken away so yeah this situation is BS. No way I would ever pay for total tech after this.

Well, Sony just slapped us in the face again. If you were using a PS3 to store your Vita games (content management) you can no longer transfer your games and saves back to your Vita. Side loading is also dead on those "gray" games you could not download to your Vita directly. but would work if transfered. I get stuff is not endlessly supported, but a warning would have been nice...

Yeah TIVs got even worse in most cases. No way in hell should someone trade Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu for $7…


I got $56 for this a few months ago...

New psn sale has the most crossbuy Vita games I have seen in quite awhile. Might be worth checking out. I am planning to get Steamworld Dig 2 and Habroxia 2 both are $4.99.

It's not a good idea to use coupons on B2G1 sales as they usually will apply it to the free game, as it's applied to the lowest game.


This is not right unless it just changed.
Coupon goes to most expensive game. To make sense one game needs to be at least 5 bucks more than the cheapest game or you will waste the coupon.

If you have 3 10 dollar games it is 20 bucks if you apply the coupon it is still 20 bucks because 5 is taken off one game and that becomes the free game and you wasted the coupon.
If you have a 15, 10 and 10 it is 25 bucks, apply coupon and it goes to the 15 one and total will drop to 20.
This worked during the last b2g1 I did, but look at the price before and after the coupon is applied.

Might take you up on that when I have time. Busy as shit with 2 kids and my job so I don't play until late at night, and then fall asleep 30 minutes later lol

Same boat...2 kids plus work means game at night or not at all.
I was trying to figure out how I had so many hours in ESO and then realized I fall asleep trying to squeeze in gaming time on a fairly regular basis. Fun times waking up when the controller hits the floor...
Best is when you wake up and realize you have been walking into a wall for who knows how long

are you including digital? I would be surprised if switch has a thousand physical releases total.

I never understand the rage for a bad PS Plus (or Games with Gold) month. At the worst pricing, you are getting some titles (in any given month) that you won't play for $5.

Let's face it, this is CAG... you probably have 100's of games that you bought for around $5 that you have never played.


Let's be honest with ourselves... for most of us you need at add another 0.

Great source to learning investments

So you save, see what stock goes up the next day and reload the previous day so you can buy it.

I had that game as a kid, was actually kind of fun.

I figured it out, to get max distance you have to run as one of the princesses. It is kind of convoluted, but you pick the princess start the level to see which character is running end the level and select the character you saw, start the level again and you will be the princess.

Todays daily challenge in Rayman is glitched Murphy diamond cup. Need 515.99 for the Diamond. 9 hours left.


Thanks for this, but quick question I am getting to 515.81 how do you get the last bit?

I am not a Financial advisor but I will be personally buying that Netflix dip tomorrow.


I have been subscribing since 2008 or 2009 and I am dropping the service. The price keeps going up and they are loosing content left and right. I don't see them keeping their customer base let alone growing this year. There may be a bounce tomorrow, but I think it is pushing lower this year.

How bad of an idea would it be to buy a refurbished external HDD from GameStop?

Worse than a used controller bad...
