#13332686 Anime & Manga Steals and Deals (Rightstuf, Amazon, DD...etc)

Posted by b3b0p on 18 May 2016 - 04:30 AM

Because most of their complete series releases recently have  been entirely done as combo packs, and I utterly refuse to buy those bloated pieces of crap. I should have to make my own coverart just to get a decent size case to hold the series in. Same thing with stuff like Shana Season 1 and Spice & Wolf. At least with their old sets like Samurai 7 and Full Metal Panic I could easily switch the cases out to ones that hold more discs.

 

EDIT: In better news, Iron-Blooded Orphans is indeed coming to Toonami later this year.

 

I don't follow. These complete series offer an order of magnitude more value. I almost always wait for the single complete collection versus having to buy a number of individual collections or seasons / parts at the same price or more each. Plus, I hate having all the extra boxes. I'd even prefer to buy all digital only, but the Blu-ray complete sets are often cheaper, more so when Amazon, Funimation, or Rightstuf has a sale.

The standard bebop looks great, that variant though     :puke:

 

Sorry, you are wrong. The variant is magnificent and considered much better. I agree. Up close, it's metallic. It's gorgeous! 

 

Holy crap. Those are beautiful. I imagine they were very expensive.

 

The prints, were standard pricing for him and  other artists. The frames though, about $200+ each.

 

Fancy poster collecting is seriously expensive hobby. I have a backlog of 30 or so to get framed.

Nice poster. Where did you get it? Off topic, but where the hell is the spoiler button?

 

Poster? I'm insulted, officially.

Just ordered both!

I love B Gata H Kei. One of my favorite anime. This is a complete steal. Everyone should get if you want something fun to watch and don't take anime so serious.

B Gata H Kei was a pretty great blind buy for me. Funny little series.


One of my favorites. It's extremely entertaining and plain old fun. I can watch it over and over and never get tired of it. I think I have re-watched it at least 4 or 5 times.


#12514516 New Nintendo 3DS Bundles up for Preorder at Gamestop, Best Buy, Target! (...

Posted by b3b0p on 19 February 2015 - 04:10 AM

I'm sure eventually they would ban the account I'm using but what's to stop me from creating a new one? And you could argue that they ban my card on there but it's not like I can't go to the store and purchase a Amazon gift card and then make a purchase. I thought this site was for cheapass gamers. 

Cheap ass gamers is the name of the site. It's just a name.

 

Being cheap and being a lying cheating fraud are completely different. What you are doing is illegal. You are stealing.

For some reason one's on amazon are selling for way more. I'm seeing them go for $650. Insane

The biggest reason is because Amazon fees are somewhere around 20%. In terms of convenience for the seller and buyer Amazon beats eBay in my experience.

I await the crying, whining, bitching, moaning analogue thread of this after the New 3DS is launched and you can walk into Target, Best Buy, and Wal-Mart and pick one up for $199.99 with a free game or gift card.

Why the hell are you writing a review for a game that isn't released yet?




#11737800 Best Headphones?

Posted by b3b0p on 06 May 2014 - 02:38 AM

Anyone here have experience with Bose headphones? I was thinking of getting a pair of OE2i's or AE2i's for ~$90.

No highs, no lows, must be Bose.

 

I like the Sony MDR-7506 and MDR-1r significantly more. My co-worker traded in his Bose for the Sony's even. I tried his Bose, but they just sounded boring. I don't even know how to describe the sound. 

 

I had Senn HD650, but didn't like them. I thought the MDR-7506 even sounded better. For the price you would think otherwise, but I imagine the Senn HD555 aren't any better. Maybe it's just my sound preference. 




#11692847 Best Headphones?

Posted by b3b0p on 16 April 2014 - 03:23 AM

Beats are not best. They are not good... for the price. They are stylish and that is all. For the price your best option is the Sony MDR-7506. I have the Sony's, Denon D7000, Sony MDR-1r, Sennheiser HD650, and some others. My 2 favorite are the Sony MDR-7506 and the MDR-1r. The MDR-1r would be my top choice (I imported them from Japan), but the MDR-7506 sound just as good if not better than anything and everything I have ever used. Comfort wise they are top notch. 

 

Note, the Sony MDR-7506 are the same headphones they use pretty much everywhere when mastering the audio for your movie or TV show or music album. They are extremely well built and can take a beating.  Google them, you will be surprised. 




#11668637 Mickey Edition 3DS XL coming on April 11th

Posted by b3b0p on 05 April 2014 - 02:55 AM

What you should be thinking about is the cost of the games on the system. There are no "CAG worthy" deals on Nintendo systems. Especially for games developed by Nintendo. It amazes me that this shit company has the gall to charge $40 for their games (upped the price $10 for no justifiable reason), then offer slightly improved graphics that shell a twenty year old gaming experience. They don't drop their prices, they don't offer any good sales etc. Investing in this system is very costly, and you're not getting anything you haven't gotten before. On a PC, Xbox, PS3/4 you get new, innovative ideas, which offer a much more enjoyable and fulfilling experience, and the prices drop quickly to a CAG level. 

 

I'm sure everyone here knows at this point that I don't like Nintendo. I'm still waiting for someone to tell me how you can justify supporting a company that's blatantly ripping its customers off. 

 

Also, really, who are they trying to appeal to with this gimmick? Pampered children with their hands on mommy and daddy's wallet? Everything this company does seriously annoys me.

 

Fuck, go away. Why are you even posting here? You have too much time on your hands to care this much.

 

I dig this 3DS. I can't justify having more than 1. I'm still on an original launch day Onyx Black.




#11614076 Bayonetta 2 (Wii U) $59.99 + $10 Gift Card @NEWEGG [Pre Order]

Posted by b3b0p on 16 March 2014 - 02:58 AM

LOL I didn't know I was trolling. I just seriously don't know anyone that has a wii u. I know playstation/xbox people and I know wii people. Bayonetta 2 on Wii U just seems crazy, but I don't know. Thief on a system other than pc, lol? my computer at home is like 10 years old and im lucky if I can play titanquest/age of mythology. I havnt played games on computer cept minesweeper n oregon trail back in the day. I'm not good with technology unless it comes plug n play right outta the box i.e. consoles. I tried computers but I just get distracted with all the porn and etc.
 
I also love the people that say 100% sure this is only gonna be on Wii U. They said the same thing about Mass Effect 1, same thing with microsoft published game never gonna happen and no more heroes only on wii... those didn't last.
 
hydrophobia. lol


Totally different situation. Mass Effect was a 3rd party game. Bayonetta 2 would not exist without Nintendo at this time. Keep dreaming if you think this goes multi. It's going in the Nintendo vault if anything.


#11609320 UPDATE: Amazon to Raise Fees (7 days to lock in on Prime Pricing)

Posted by b3b0p on 14 March 2014 - 03:13 AM

1. The streaming is not a separate service. They know if it was, no one would subscribe when compared to Netflix and Hulu, which offer superior, more streamlined and polished solutions.

 

2. 50% increase would be $119, not $159 as a poster above mentioned.

 

3. Amazon has razor thin margins or none at all. Thus, little to no profit, depending on the state of consumer spending. 

 

4. $20 increase is almost nothing compared to the cost of actually paying for shipping yourself, especially at 2-day shipping from FedEx or UPS. How much can you ship for $20 via UPS or FedEx 2-day delivery? Not much.

 

I'm happy they raised the price and I'm happy to support them. I knew it was coming and expected it. I'm surprised how long they were able to keep the $79 in place honestly with the costs of shipping rising.
