In Topic: ►Best Buy 2018: Get $10 in Rewards or Gift Card w/Pre-Order

26 October 2017 - 10:57 PM

Nevermind; the event starts at 8pm so I'll miss the release tonight. anyway  Looking forward to tomorrow, though :)


My Best Buy is doing a 9:01pm release tonight for Super Mario Odyssey near me (Washington State).  How long does the store stay open for releases such as this?  Until the line dies down, for one hour, etc.?  What have been your experiences?


Sorry to ask this here but I spent 30 minutes on the phone with their system and eventually two kind, but uninformed human beings (not their fault at all; seems like Best Buy doesn't even inform their phone reps) and for an hour on their website and online trying to find the answer.  I came up with nothing and the website doesn't list an end time.


I'm coming from an event that probably goes past 9pm tonight and I just wanted to know if it was worth heading there afterward to pick up my preorder or just pick it up tomorrow after work.


Thanks in advance, fellow CAGs!

In Topic: Humble Bundle: Rise of the Tomb Raider $12

EDIT:  Oops, found a support page that answered my question:




Just picked up the Mobile Epic Platformers Bundle and noticed that Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons has four different installers (ATITC, ETC, DXT, PVRTC) to choose from.


I have a Galaxy S7 Edge, so which version is best to install?


P.S. I loved this game on PC.  Just a pure delight and cleverly used twin analog sticks for control.  I'm hoping that the mobile version utilizes haptic feedback as rumble was (in my opinion) a very important part of the game.

Thanks for the heads-up, OP!  Unfortunately, I also agree that the Genesis/MD clone systems are not good at all.  My brother-in-law gave me one years ago.  The AV quality was worse than my actual Genesis and Sega CDX hooked up also using composite connections.  Colors were off, the sound was awful, and the same goes for using cartridges.  The controllers were cheap and mushy, too.


I really wish there was an inexpensive option for Genesis/MD clone systems that comes close to the originals, but there isn't outside of something like the Retron 5 (which I also own - I think it does a great job overall).
