Has a 41% score on rotten tomatoes tho?


So? Rt isn't a good judge of movies....I mean if you can't like it because Scarlett Johansson is the star like half the trolls hating the movie then whatever.....it's a good use of the license though.

I have never met a non-tipper who tells the person they aren't going to tip before services are rendered.

exactly....they dont want the the delivery guy to screw them....and trust me, delievery guys if they have to go to non-tippers often enough, will screw those folks.

Because it's going to tank hard?  Because it still doesn't have a proper unified account system?  Because there is one good game for it?  Because there are serious issues with the left joy con?  

its baffling really that nintendo went for the friend code system again....for petes sake just copy gamertags already. be super lazy and call it your N-ID or something. 

 

its 2017....we get it, the internet has pedophiles out there....but despite this XBL and PSN have managed to avoid problems and havent had children getting abducted.

Prime Now drivers get an hourly wage and use their own vehicles.

if this is true, then well it depends what their hourly wage is(aka is the job a tipping job) and then the wear and tear on their car....if you are abusing the hell out of your own car to deliever crap, then you need to make at least 15 an hour to make this even half way worthwhile and in your higher cost of living liberal states, this needs to be even higher than 15 an hour. at which point, if the job itself isnt paying that, then whoever doesnt tip is a douche.

 

the wear and tear on the personal car can be quite high....but hey if folks want same day order delivery then they need to be willing to pay for it.

$5 an hour? If the minimum wage where you live is $5 an hour then the cost of living is calculated into that... TLDR: They'll live...

 

Also, They ARE driving company vehicles and company provided gas, and they ARE getting paid $13-15 an hour....

 

So I'll keep my $5 tip, thanks  :D/

 

 

 

 

Side note: Isn't this the game that everyone calls the wannabee Astroneer? Or the game that Astroneer did better with?

people who make tips ALWAYS(99% of the time in the states) make below minimum wage.  its almost like you have no concept of tipping jobs.

Because its prime now, and not regular amazon delivery.

 

I wouldnt tip though because I dislike the whole idea of when I spend money on something that I am also expected to just give extra money on top of it for real reason at all beyond someone is bringing it to me. It isnt like some person is bringing me something as a favor, they arent obligated to, or anything like that they, its their job to bring it to me. If I ask a friend to do something I show appreciation by doing them a favor in return or find something to give them in appreciation but when it comes to someones job at a company to bring me something? Or a waiter where its their job to bring something? Hell no. We need to do what they do in europe where people are paid better for jobs like that and they have no tipping and many countries its appreciated but not expected nor as much as it is here. Jesus everyone wants a handout here, cant turn around without seeing a tip jar someplace or someone trying to find a way to squeeze out a little more money from me.

 

I work as a engineer for a large hotel and couple days ago a guest had a air unit that the heat wouldnt come on in, so I ended up having to replace the relay on the heater side, they tried to give me 10 bucks and I refused it because I felt bad taking money from someone for doing what the hotel pays me to do.

 

Tips are a scam by companies that dont want to pay their employees better wages so they use guilt as a means to get paying customers to make up the difference.

 

Damn I ran off the rails there.

 

Its worth it if you want a game thats pretty much only about exploring worlds, collecting stuff and so on. I liked it a lot because it felt like I was exploring worlds from scifi paperback book covers from the 70s and 80s. I found it relaxing. A lot of micro management in it also, researching, finding things and so on. Its a game where I play it for an hour at a time for months and months in between playing other games to completetion. I could see it getting boring if you just played it constantly. Just dont expect a lot of action. This is not a game for someone with a shitty attention span.

makes you a douche really.

 

tipping is what makes delivery worthwhile for anything. tipped jobs here pay far better than minimum wage which is what they would be making otherwise. assuming Prime now is like that(I have no idea), then you are a douche if you do not tip.

 

if prime now drivers however get 13 an hour or something and arent driving their own cars(another reason to tip your delivery people is that they often have to abuse their own cars), then yeah not tipping isnt bad. but if it is a standard delievery of making 5 an hour or something while driving their own car then you are a douche for not tipping. plain and simple.

 

but that said a pizza driver or something can make far more because of tips than they would if they made 10 an hour.

That is good to hear.  Gundam Wing was my first mech series.  Guess I better look into selling off my DVDs.

i would wait.

 

we've learned by much sad experience that the blu ray versions arent always better.




#13648572 Japanese Niche Games Deals & Discussion Thread 4.0

Posted by kayne2000 on 02 March 2017 - 03:03 AM

Does anyone have some suggestions of their favorite paid DLC for Japanese games? I've already grabbed the full games that are digital only I've been interested in like Phantom Breaker Battlegrounds + the Kurisu DLC, as well as some Samurai Warriors 4/4-II costume DLC, and the Future Tone Season Pass. Beyond that, not much else.

 

After getting a large amount of trade credit at a local store I'm noticing that getting newer releases is kind of a pain with whomever their small distributor is. My solution has been to just pick up lots of prepaid digital storefront cards. Unfortunately, PlayStation has a cap of $150 on wallet balances so I can't store up more than that at a time.

 

I guess all that DOA5LR DLC is an option... But I'm still kind of betting that whenever they stop making new DLC they'll bundle all the old stuff together in some way with some kind of discount. The real question is if they'll really ever stop making it at this point. Haha.

you know i am extremely curious on how many folks are still buying all this DLC and how many have all of the DLC....and really if there ever is some kind of plan to discount any of this like ever. 

 

whats funny is i wish wrestling games would adopt this infinite DLC model really.

 

 

Amazon deal of the day has Tales of Beseria at 33% off, which I'm guess it will be $40. Doesn't start until 3:01 Est tonight.

 

https://www.amazon.c...MNC332F4E5&th=1

the amount of tales games i've bought and never touched is simply mind blowing....the only ones i've ever played were the two tales of symphonia games which i enjoyed.

 

still got the massive collector editions of tales of xilla i think it was 1 and 2 sealed.

I picked up just a couple items with the Target sale, mixing similarly priced anime from my wish list with 4K and 3D titles including a couple preorders.

Serial Experiments Lain
Claymore

I was really tempted to pick up all seasons of Full Metal Panic and Heaven's Lost Property, but my wife would kill me if that many packages showed up in a single week.

i disagree with the other guy. lain is quite good.

 

if you enjoy mindfudges then its quite good. though if you do watch it and i do recommend it if you are into that kind of anime, then actually watch all of it. the first few episodes are basically set ups to the second half. in fact if you judged the anime off of the first episode alone, you'd walk away thinking it is something completely different that what it is.

my wal marts suck these days.

 

i really wish wal mart was at least half way consistent with this crap. i'd love to raid their 20 dollar game pile if they reduced that stuff to 5 or less bucks where it belongs. stuff that sits there for years and years.

Internet anime fans are mostly giant weebs that are impossible to please.  They bitch about absolutely everything from domestic releases, to Japanese superiority, and are giant 'subs only' bigots. 

 

I'm with you.  I'm very excited to see how this Ghost in the Shell movie turns out.  So far with the teasers and the previews it looks like it could be amazing.

 

I'm just thankful that we get so many shows over here now.  That every year there are more offerings than the last, and internet niche distribution keeps growing stronger every year.   It's such a great time to be an anime fan; we have so many options from which to choose the way we receive our media. 

i'll add that a lot of in person anime fans i've met are just as weeb-like as their internet counterparts. with video game fans in real life, i've noticed its more 50/50....but the internet and real life in my experience when it comes to anime fans, are weebs through and through. and worse than that....often socially dysfunctional to the point of utter retardation. and it only gets worse if they are into card games.....its quite sad really, because i would love to be able to hang out and watch anime and maybe even play a round of magic or some other board game....but i cant stomach the fanbases for those people.....they all seem to lack any kind of social ability at all. every last one of them except like 1 out of 1000.....its like they are all super liberal in dire need of at least 5 safe spaces in every room they inhabit. 

 

i agree....anime options are pretty good these days overall. though i've got a giant pile in the backlog that im confident i'll never get through.

 

but yeah i'll be there to see GiTS day 1

 

 

I'm optimistic for Ghost in The Shell. I do wish it was someone besides Scarlett since I'm not really a fan of hers, but I have no problem with a white person being cast. Nowhere, in any of the movies or series is her race ever declared, so people complaining about that aspect are just people getting offended on behalf of another race (in a lot of cases).

my memory may be rusty, but im fairly certain she's japanese like the rest of the cast, however none of them actually look japanese.  but i could be remembering it all wrong. but its a problem in anime when they try and cast people for live action versions, the fanbase cries foul because they arent cast as japanese....yet they never look japanese in anime. honestly im not sure who they are getting offended for exactly as im not sure japanese anime fans even care.

 

as for scarlett i've not given much thought about her one way or the other....but what i do like about her being cast is that she is a fairly big star, so that gives me hope that movie has high production values.

 

 

 

Amazing, that's what it is.  :D

so according to you that means its some weird harem right????

 

 

Stand Alone Complex season 1 and 2 would be good, but I have no idea what 3rd thing I would get.

hmmm well i did have GITS preordered at best buy.....

Please be good!

heres hoping the GiTS movie is good. Im not hung up on the lack of japanese actors(i think that is a dumb complaint anyway) and i dont even care if it follows the main story 100%....it just needs to be:

 

1. well acted

2. well directed.

3. well told

4. fits well within the established universe of GiTS

 

but it seems internet anime fans are willing to kill it before they even see it because *GASP* the actors arent japanese and thus the movie is inauthentic. never mind the fact anime characters dont look japanese 90% of the time....oh and because heaven forbid the movie doesnt follow the anime/manga script/plot 120%

 

Im okay with the movie as long as at the end of the show, i feel like i've watched something from the ghost in the shell universe

i know i havent posted in a while but i just wanted to say first and foremost....i hate this thread and its creator.

 

and secondly i spent probably too much on this yearly sale. somewhere between 400-500

 

thirdly....i vow this year to get through the backlog of dvds and blu rays!!! or at least make a dent in it.

 

Finally placed an order on the RS sale. Picked up:

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia (blu), Tokyo Majin (dvd), Ef a tale double pack (dvd), Bodacious Space Pirates (dvd), The Book of Bantorra (blu), Kino's Journey (dvd), Sankarea (blu), and Shiki (blu). Total about $170.

Had a big list and narrowed it down to those. Might cave and grab a couple more sometime.

 

i enjoyed dusk maiden way more than i should have. that anime was far better than it had any business ever being.

 

 

and thank you whoever informed me GiTS is getting a blu ray release...now if only they gave us a proper season 3 and sequel to solid state society. guess i'll preorder that now.
