In Topic: Get $10 credit with $50 amazon credit (YMMV)

07 December 2016 - 04:56 PM

I rarely shop at Amazon because the shipping cost + wait usually kill it for me, but I'll take a deal when it's offered especially if I have points saved up. Thanks for the heads up on savings! Getting an occasional Prime Trial also makes me question needing it full time, especially when I've gotten along fine without it for a few years now.

 

"Dude, you haven't given us any of your money lately. Brah, COME SHOP HERE, PLX!!"

I would totally buy a PSP4.

Wait is this just poking fun of the OP's misspelled acronym, or confusion of what product they were actually referring to? Because you can totally go out and buy a PS4P if 4k-ish gaming is your thing.

A bit surprised by the immediate warm reception by Ship and Wombat for Super Mario Run (also, why the heck wasn't this named, "Run, Super Mario!"?). It's literally the same exact gameplay and art style they've been using for the last decade since the "New" brand started in '06. It's just spun into a stripped down mobile format.

 

Not to say that it doesn't look amusing enough for a phone game, but just a bit amazed that this glaring facet of it was completely missed by the crew, instead calling it "really polished".

 

There's no doubt it will sell fine; if a business can recycle assets over and over and they keep selling, it's a quick buck and easy decision. Good for Nintendo, not so much for the fans sadly (you guys touched on that last point, with the hardcore fans bit).

Every now and then we will do a random verification on an order. Also, if an international customer orders and puts in a North American address it flags in our system. Another flag would be if an invalid/incorrect phone number is entered.

I finally got a message from them, but it's not a code. It's them asking me to call a number and confirm that I want the code or it will be cancelled. Is this normal? I haven't read anywhere on this thread of this happening.

Sounds like they do occasional verification on their end. Guessing it's to prevent bots from taking advantage of the offer and verifying you're human. I wouldn't be worried about it =P

I'm with the majority here, and disappointed in Shipwreck as a fellow midwesterner. Cattle farming is absolutely terrible for the environment, and exists primarily due to staunch American demand for cheap food. Don't get me wrong, I love me a delicious hamburger as much as any carnivore, but I too would at least give something like this new burger a try if it means generating interest in alternatives (marketing conspiracies aside).

 

Also big lulz to this mailbox debacle. Who's ever heard of a mailman dropping packages at the curb?! xD It has to either be received or left near a door out of the elements (i.e. not able to be pelted by rain or snow, for obvious reasons). And fear of danger for having to walk to the mailbox....just..what???

Sounds like you've done your research, put the box on the house if it's not allowed by the road and be done with it =P

 

I'm also surprised we're calling recliners 'dangerous' like it's the new mom phobia for their children's safety. The phenomenon of the "phone abyss" is nowhere near new for anyone that's ridden/driven in the front two seats of a car; it's unavoidable by current design. Get bigger pockets or a smaller phone instead of asking someone else to reinvent the wheel due to personal inconvenience.

 

Also more video game talk, we're way off on tangents here spanning multiple shows xD
