#13690260 Nes classic in stock at Walmart ymmv

Nintendo hates you and your money. Seriously though, why discontinue the controllers? They can be used with other systems, can't they? Plus people still want spares for the NES mini, or for replacements when one craps out. Makes no sense to discontinue a hot accessory.

Im surprised Amazon is allowing all these scammers, since they're the ones taking the loss. The way it works is someone orders a ridiculously underpriced Switch or any other high priced electronic, the item immediately gets "shipped" meaning the seller marks it as shipped and gets access to the funds which they immediately withdraw. On the date of expected delivery, no package is delivered, the buyer fes an A-Z Claim and gets a refund. Since the sellers account no longer has funds to post for the refund, Amazon puts their account in the negative, and attempts to reclaim funds from the checking account or credit / debit account on file, which conveniently no longer works or has money on if. Amazon eats the loss, and probably sends the sellers info to a debt collector but if they're overseas of registered with phony information, good luck with that.

Wow that's nuts. Amazon just needs to do away with the whole 3rd party sales thing and just go back to selling everything themselves. Let the scammers sell crap on eBay.

Don't care about the Switch with its crummy graphics, but I'll be ready for that classic NES!

It's true. Gamestop makes all their money on selling used products. A new game that costs $59.99 the store paid about $55-57 for from the distributor.

How is Gamestop paying $55-$57 per unit when Amazon and Best Buy can sell at 20% off and presumably still make a profit? Surely Gamestop can get a better deal than that.

I installed the shitty mobile authenticator, got my setup code texted to me, entered it, then it just gave me a blank recovery code. No authenticator digits. Can't remove the authenticator, just get an error if I try to remove it. Steam thinks my account is now protected with the mobile authenticator. Don't have a recovery code to remove it. Just wonderful. Anyone thinking of using the mobile authenticator... DON'T!!

I'll be honest, not a sale but a pretty decent deal (IMO).  

 

Pathfinder Adventures came out on iPad. (only iPad for now)  If you buy the DLC in the game (with ingame gold, or 25 bucks to buy the whole lot) it is all unlocked when the Steam edition comes out.  They are currently having issues between Android/iPad at the moment though (in the forums).

Game is fun, but they have a lot of bugs to work out. They probably should have waited another month or so to release. I found one where you can get about 300 gold/minute.  :D/

 

I have the first two games with all the adventure decks IRL, but it's so nice to be able to play on the ipad without having to mess with all the setup and shuffling. Games are so much quicker!

I wouldn't say 5 for no reason you could use them for dedicated games so you are not using the same controller all the time. 304ac421209e1f471c36c35b0daee095.jpg

I think I'm going to need more eneloops.

Out of curiosity, does anyone else often win like 4 or 5 in a row then lose the next three in arena? I ask because I am beginning to think that they match you up against harder opponents if you are on a winning streak. This happens to me often.

Supposedly you are matched with someone with the same number of wins/losses as you, or as close as possible. So when you get to higher wins you're facing tougher decks from players who are also at higher wins. So there's a "ranked" matchmaking going on in arena, it isn't just totally random matchups.




#11816126 Hearthstone: CAG-Style

Posted by redline on 05 June 2014 - 01:16 PM

Just ranked up to Level 20 for June.  I think I'm going to try playing ranked for real this month.  I need to unlock a lot more cards to be competitive but I'm sitting on 2,000+ gold for Naxx so anything I earn going forward will be towards packs.

 

I do hate the beginning of the month though - so many freaking legendary cards being thrown down against me.  Someone played a Ysera on turn 9 and then I stole it (I was playing as priest) and then the next turn he threw down a Ragnaros so I just quit.  It was his third legendary of the game and I was just so annoyed at that point.

 

Also, I decided not to friend anyone (a few of you have thrown out requests) - my son plays a ton too and I just don't want him potentially exposed to other players online.  Oh well.  It is still fun to talk about the game here though...

If you haven't already, make an account on Hearthstats.net and use it track your ranked games. It will prompt you to create decks and fill in the cards, but I just created one empty deck for each class named something like "generic Mage". Then when I play a ranked match at the beginning of the match I select the deck I'm using, my opponents class, and if I got the coin or not. At the end of the match click on whether you got a win or loss. It's pretty quick and easy.

 

Then you can go to the statistics screen and see your win rate for each class. You can also see your wins and losses versus specific classes. It really helps to understand which decks you are strong or weak with so you can focus on the strong ones to climb the ladder.
