In Topic: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutants in Manhattan Xbox One $9.99 FREE SH...

I got TMNT for I think $8 from Redbox around Christmas. There was a lot of potential in it (with some polish it really could have been a fun update to the beat em' up arcade style) but as is, it feels rushed, incomplete and at times boring. The boss battles in particular are just not fun. It was worth the $8 because I was able to sell it off for like $20 at the time, but hard to justify it otherwise. 

 

Wound up buying Dead Island Definitive for $8 though.

Just to note, this was posted in the "Free Xbox Live" thread in contest and free stuff a while back. If you have an Xbox and don't check that thread regularly you're missing out. 


In Topic: Bulletstorm XB1/PS4 @ Best Buy $20 ($16 w/ GCU) DotD DEAAAAAAD!

Damn this game tanked, but I kinda expected it after they tried to charge full MSRP for a HD remake/remaster of a decent game that released years ago.

 

Still probably gonna pass though, I'm sure it will be this price everywhere soon (Or less)

No kidding, Bulletstorm under-performed when it first came out so I was genuinely surprised to even see an HD remake. My guess is that they were hoping that for a "low-cost" HD update they could make some extra cash off of it and drum up interest in a sequel. 


In Topic: Guardians Galaxy: Telltale - XB1, PS4, Best Buy, $20/$16 with GCU

Does nobody else in the thread understand how the disc works? There's no code. Nothing is attached to your account. You just put the disc in and you can download and play all the episodes. After you're done with it you can resell the disc for near what you paid for it and the next person can play all of the episodes too.

I get this, though I also get why some people hate this model when all episodes aren't available at the time of the disc release. If nothing else, the whole premise is clearly just hard for people to understand (case an point, on a video game site where people have a high level of understanding on this, people are still struggling to understand the fundamentals of the system; the average consumer is probably more lost). 

 

My main hesitation to buying this version is simply that I have to hold on to it until everything has come out (is this correct, downloading the new episodes does require the disk?). 


In Topic: McDonald's (USA) now has Super Mario Happy Meal Toys

No shame in ordering a happy meal as an adult

 

Considering a happy meal is like a recommended amount of calories for a meal for an adult, there really isn't. lol But as someone else has noted, you can buy happy meal toys without buying a happy meal. 

 

Do you guys really think these will be collectors items?

McDonald's toys use to actually become pretty hot items after a while but I don't think that's been the case for some time. You may find an ability to sell the toy for $5 or more down the road when someone needs that one figure to complete their collection, but I wouldn't expect much more than that.
