#12764423 FINAL FANTASY X/X-2 HD Remaster Limited Edition - PlayStation 4 $39.99 (...

Posted by WilliamG on 23 June 2015 - 07:20 PM

I heard this version was glitchy, something about the music loop and about the battles not being randomized. Anyone else?

There you go, now you know why it's truly a "limited" edition.

 

Yes, the battles are not randomized, and yes, the music RESTARTS completely after every battle, so you never get to hear more than 10-15 seconds of any particular track.

 

FYI the PS3/Vita versions have no such issue. Avoid the PS4 version.

I picked up the digital version and am trading in the physical. I love this game (and FH2). The haters are missing out.

#12691761 Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate 3DS $29.99/$23.99 GCU at Best Buy/Amazon

One of the best releases of the year (along with Xenoblade which is a must-own).

 

Buy it. Now.




#12647351 Amazon UK Live Bundle - 4Yrs Gold for 39.99GBP

My first order just came through! Took about 45 minutes total. Yay! 




#12638450 Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask $29.99 Used @ Best Buy

Posted by WilliamG on 14 April 2015 - 03:57 AM

Not everyone is dumb enough to pay for a discount when 90% of the time you can get the same discount by waiting a little bit or simply shopping around. Most other places halve a games msrp while bb still have it at normal msrp in a lot of cases.

I mean its ok. I have it purely because I complained about a manager who was hounding me to buy it and bb gave it to me for free.

 

Hey guess what? When the prices drop at Best Buy after x number of months, you still get 20% off on top of that with GCU! And thanks for calling a lot of us dumb.  :shame:

my screen looks like the one to the right

Good, then it's IPS. :) 




#12637365 Majora's Mask New 3DS XL - In Store - YMMV (Limited Supply)

Posted by WilliamG on 13 April 2015 - 06:54 PM

The worst part of this release is that some NEW 3DS XLs are IPS and some are not, and it makes a HUGE difference, not just to viewing angles, but contrast, motion blur, black levels etc. 

 

Bottom line: If you get a new 3DS XL and it's a non-IPS top display (bottom one is TN no matter what), you're really, REALLY missing out.

 

Here's one of my two new 3DS XLs. Guess which one isn't acceptable..

#12584764 PSN Flash Sale Ends 3/23 @ 11 AM PT/2 PM ET: ~$0.95 PS4/PS3/Vita/PS1/PS2...

Posted by WilliamG on 22 March 2015 - 05:24 AM

Sony really needs to get rid of this stupid 10 items per cart and $5 minimum. Its really frustrating trying to figure out what games I'm trying to buy and then splitting it into purchases of more than $5 but also less than 10 games. Also I have a bad feeling I'm going to own all of this sale by the end of it.

And also annoying is the max of $150 in your PSN account. Total BS.

FYI, I had a coupon like this some months ago, and it completely overrode any GCU discount. 




#12493693 PlayStation TV 50% off at Amazon February 13, 2015

Posted by WilliamG on 13 February 2015 - 01:05 AM

I got mine for $100 when it launched in Japan. $40 is a no brainer for this.

I agree, you'd have to have precisely zero brain to buy one of these. 

 

Honestly, if the remote play worked as well as the Wii U -> GamePad works, I'd say YES, easily worth it. Given the input lag is awful even with a wired PS4 and wired PS TV, there's no purpose to one of these. Games suited for the Vita just aren't suited for sitting in front of a TV (a couple of exceptions aside).

 

Just... no.

[quote name="Lazerack" post="12489268" timestamp="1423687951"]At least your MH shipped. I ordered mine back in September and still haven't seen a shipping notice on it yet...[/quote

Yep. Same here. Can still cancel it. Sigh.

Damn, got a shipped now email from Best Buy. It was just Majoras Mask and Monster Hunter though, 3ds is still in process. :(


Lucky. I ordered MH4U 6 months ago from BB, and zero movement on it. Elite Plus, here, too. Clearly that free expedited shipping is worth a lot.

Quite frankly the MM is a ridiculously ugly system, and as mentioned earlier - pure marketing by Nintendo. They didn't even bother giving it a cool interior, and let's not forget - when you open the system, the picture is upside down *shakes head*. Even Apple figured that one out years ago...

Anyway, had the chance to buy one, lol'ed, and preordered a black one. Thanks Nintendo.
