Amusingly, the game that I purchased from Japan with this discount just arrived today!

It's been a rumor (all but confirmed officially) since before E3 based on devkit leaks and patent filings. The guess is that it'll launch in 2019, and be backwards compatible. The benefit of switching to a more common architecture. So replacing your PS4 with a PS5 should not be an issue at all.

Tell that to my wallet.

#14063189 2018 Thrift Store Thread -- Share Your Findings Here

I got a Vita (OLED model) for $66, but it came to $78 after a warranty and taxes. Not really sure WHY I did this, honestly. I guess I decided it would be smarter to just get a fresh system, rather than trying to repair and potentially ruining the old one. (The right thumb doesn't work and the connector on the bottom no longer transfers data.)

By the way, if you're into collecting video games, a PSP is a good, cost-effective way to do it. Picked up four games and a movie for $25 at Bookman's. There was a huge pile of loose games; it'd probably be safe to say hundreds. Definitely a buyer's market for this system right now.

Well, it is effective birth control. I've got one along with all my other video game crap, and the ladies won't go near me.

Ooh, ooh! I know this! The Merge Cube is this squishy foam cube with patterns all over it. You hold it up to your phone and graphics are projected onto it. Well, they're projected onto your phone's screen, anyway.

It's augmented reality, but it doesn't work so great because you have to hold your phone and the cube all at the same time. It's better if you have a VR visor, but even then it's not great. If it tells you anything, they were selling them for a buck at Wal-Mart and people still weren't buying them

I got an Xbox One, so an extra purchase isn't necessary. =}

They take low quality beer, use charcoal filters to remove the original flavor, then add lemon, lime, and sugar. So yeah, it's like Sprite, but with the distinct tang of alcohol. I wish the citrus flavors were stronger and the alcohol more subtle, but eh, whaddaya gonna do.

You guys notice how expensive the Playstation TV has gotten lately? It's gone from clearance priced dud to $100+ eBay treasure in just a couple of years. Almost makes me wish I had purchased more of them when Wal-Mart was clearing them out.

As long as you ignore the whole battery slowdown BS they've been pulling, sure. Meanwhile us Android users can update our OS years after official support for the phone is dropped with custom ROMs, and our battery doesn't affect anything.

Heh, some Android phones let you swap out the batteries when they run low!

 

Apple was a good introduction to the whole concept of smart devices... I had an iPod Touch before I had an Android anything. But nearly ten years later, I'm not so sure I'd want to go back. They're pretty fond of the concept of planned obsolescence and I can't get onboard with that line of thought. This planet does not need more e-junk.

Beat that game I want to say a couple of years ago when I went through the entire Assassin's Creed series.  Even with its "HD" it still feels like a handheld port.  But it is still a solid game with a fairly likable protagonist (first playable female assassin from what I can remember).  It's definitely worth $7.99.  Hopefully it never goes GWG, but I certainly enjoyed playing it.

I already double-dipped on Lady Liberty, but I'm tempted to go for a third just so I don't have to drag my Playstation 3 out of mothballs just to play it. (I have it on Vita too, but my Vita is... not in great shape.)

I swear by the Mayflash Universal Adapter myself. It works with most USB controllers AND Playstation controllers, so if you're in need of an arcade joystick for your Xbox One, that adapter will give you tons of options. It'll work with the PS4 as well, but only if the game supports aux/legacy controllers, and only in the games themselves. Most fighting games have this support, but Dead or Alive 5 and the crappy Marvel vs. Capcom game do not.

Sounds like the divorce with PayPal wasn't a friendly one. Then again, so few divorces are...

Rad Rogers has been on my radar, but I didn't know if it was actually good and I always forget to look up some reviews.


The crass humor is a turn-off for me. Also, the 3D seems like it would make the platforming tougher than necessary. I think it got positive reviews from critics, but nobody was blown away by it.
