#13396271 $5 The Order: 1886 PS4

Posted by VetraX on 09 July 2016 - 09:53 AM

Can I just say something: Fuck the critics. The Order 1886 is a fantastic game. Is it single-player only? Yes. Is it short as hell, like 5-8 hours short? Sure is. Is it's gameplay anything new? Nope. But you're not going to find many other games as gorgeous as The Order 1886, you won't find many other games with better voice acting and motion capture work than The Order 1886, and you won't find many other games with a solid post-modern Victorian-era story like The Order 1886. For $5 you better be picking this game up for your PS4, it's a steal and worth every penny.


#13336986 EB Games [Canada] Summer Invasion Sale May 14-28, 2016

Posted by VetraX on 21 May 2016 - 06:24 AM

Thanks for the heads up, I haven't bothered checking EB for deals in years because I got used to them having pretty terrible deals. Picked up Until Dawn for 20$ which was the perfect price for me to finally give it a try, digging it quite a bit so far.

 

I have to say though, the clerks at my local EB made sure I won't be spending any money there for a few more years. I won't go into details, not worth it but all you need to know is they were the typical stereotypical EB clerks. 

DE-TAILS! DE-TAILS! DE-TAILS! DE-TAILS!

#13107421 Preorder - Mega Man Legacy Collection CE w/Gold Mega Man Amiibo - Amazon.ca

Posted by VetraX on 18 December 2015 - 12:20 AM

Stupid and overpriced. If it were retailing at $30-$40 I'd consider it.

How much is each Mega Man title, 1 to 6, on the eShop?

Then factor in the cost of a retail copy of these timeless games AND the limited edition amiibo. 

And then factor in the fact that it's fucking Mega Man. Yeah, personally, I'm sold.




#12551933 MGSV: The Phantom Pain Collector's Edition [Canadian Options]

Posted by VetraX on 06 March 2015 - 10:01 PM

 

I was in-store the day they announced this and a clerk told me that it was US exclusive, but I guess not. $124.99, when it's $99.99 in the States, well, it stings. If you're an MGS fan wanting the Konami Style (Japan) exclusive Premium Package, well, that's gonna sting a whole lot more; Play-Asia are currently selling the XB1 and PS3 versions for $500 USD/$620 CAD.

 

The CE has yet to show up on Amazon or the other major Canadian retailers' sites, but I'll update this post if they do.

I still think this whole thing is hilarious, sad, and ridiculous. Most people collecting, hoarding, and trading amiibo aren't even Smash players, and worst of all most aren't even using the damned things. I really hope Nintendo wisens the Fuck up and just reprints every single amiibo thousands of times over so we never have to deal with this again.




#12432064 $25.70 The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask 3D Collector's Edition:...

I was waiting for this, too. Thanks, OP. I'd laugh if people hoarded this, but just in case Chapters Indigo also has it up on their site.




#12375175 Maybe we should all re-think this whole "pre-order" thing...

Posted by VetraX on 31 December 2014 - 09:05 PM

I don't speak for everyone, but I think it's safe to say that most of us here pretty much only pre-order:

 

  1. collector's editions or niche titles that will be hard to find and/or be more expensive down the road.
  2. games from series or developers that have endeared or appealed to us over the years, eg. Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, Zelda, etc.

 

I agree with you, though. I think Mike Futter of GameInformer said it best:

 

2015 needs to be a year in which trust is rebuilt. And it needs to start before the calendar page is turned. We’re not off to a great start, unfortunately.


Today, Microsoft announced two limited edition versions of Halo 5: Guardians. Neither have been fully detailed, but you can go and pre-order a $250 Limited Collector’s Edition with a statue you’ve never seen even in rough sketches. It’s absurd, especially after the brand-weakening problems that have plagued Halo: The Master Chief Collection since its November 11 launch.

This is a mistake, and one that should not be replicated. The mysteries of the season pass should not be extended to game purchases that amount to over 70 percent of the price of the console on which they are played.

Gamers are still ready to be enchanted by games and give themselves over to the fantasy. In order for that to persist, they need to continue to feel good about buying in and that starts with respect. Publishers need to start treating customers as a vital part of the ecosystem once more and not rubes at the carnival.

 

 

I've learned my lesson with season passes, though; Destiny was my biggest regret this past year. I definitely see myself pre-ordering and buying into the hype less in 2015 and onward.

If you want to play Diablo III, then buy Diablo III - but if you're short on cash, then you should get Torchlight II instead. It's just as good. Brothers is a really great game, but requires a gamepad/controller. Metro: Last Light is good, too, but isn't optimized well, so expect to have your GPU run hot.

Awesomenauts is a dollar on flash, and Castle Crashers is a buck fiddy on community choice.
 
Reminder: Dark Souls still uses GFWL and not Steamworks to save game files. GFWL is supposed to end on July 1st, but whether that happens or not... either way, you should know.

Solid daily, especially considering the amount of DLC Borderlands 2 has. If you haven't given either a try, I highly recommend Outlast and The Wolf Among Us. Tomb Raider is also worth a look at $4.99.
 
Sleeping Dogs is $3.99 in flash. Metro: Last Light, Lone Survivor, Slender, and Betrayer are all reasonably priced in community's choice at the moment.

Skyrim didn't hit daily until the last couple days last year... $4.99 for the base game, and $13.59 for the Legendary Edition which includes all DLC.
 
DuckTales: Remastered is currently on flash for $5.09, while Papers, Please is on community choice for $2.99.

Amnesia, The Walking Dead, and State of Decay are the highlights for today. I heard Game Dev Tycoon was alright.
 
Community`s choice is good right now, mainly because Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is 75% off at $3.74.
