#13883900 Best Buy Black Friday 2017

Posted by Petey Parker on 20 November 2017 - 09:35 PM

Is store pick up disabled for the whole week?

There’s a headset on sale I really want to get this weekend. If I go to a store that has it, can I buy it at BF price (before BF starts proper)? I’m an elite member btw.

Store pick-up is just disabled for the items that are part of the Black Friday sale. Presumably it's because they will be unable to re-stock any of the advertised items prior to Black Friday and thus do not want to deplete the store inventory. The prices are good right now online only, you can't get it for those prices at the store at the moment.

Ya this roster looks terrible.  Not having Wolverine, Magneto, Doom, or anybody else from those series is ridiculous.  Instead we get Captain-who gives a Fuck- Marvel.

Disney wants that synergy because a Captain Marvel movie is on the way. Plus Marvel has been unsuccessfully pushing Carol for a few years now as Marvel's Wonder Woman but nobody cares. Hopefully some of those characters get announced at some point. A MvC game without Wolverine is crazy. He's a staple of the series.

Just a heads up, you might be better off ordering this directly from BitMap Books, the creators.

 

https://www.bitmapbo...ant=40908545806

 

I contributed to the Kickstarter for this (and the previous NES one, which is excellent) and here is some info from the backer page:

 

Amazon.com update

So the saga continues. Turns out after multiple calls to the US and emails, that Amazon can legally list whatever they like at whatever price they like. I've had several emails from distressed backers that Amazon are selling the book at a lesser price so soon after the Kickstarter. I'll say this again, just so it's 100% clear:

Amazon.com / Amazon.de / Amazon.jp will NOT be getting stock on this book. I personally control exactly where my stock goes and for books to go into Amazon you have to be a registered seller (which I'm not) or have an agent who is. So, these sites cannot fulfil the order they're taking so just ignore the listings. I very rarely discount my books and I would never be stupid to discount by almost 50% before it's even released! I would never disrespect my backers like that.

Thanks for that. That happened to me before with a similar NES book that Amazon ended up removing later on (It may have been the one you mentioned). I'll check out the website.

 

Edit: I see he offers a softcover version as well on the site. I'd actually prefer that one over the hardcover anyway. Thanks again.

So it looks like one of the reasons there is a delay in US pre-orders is because of FCC clearance.

Looks like we're in this for the long haul ladies and gentlemen.

Keep an eye out for the public FCC rating approval ... for shortly after you can expect the pre-orders to go live.

And with the incompetent prick that Trump put in charge of the FCC, we may be waiting a while. This sucks. I guess everyone can stop living here for a while.

I was on AOL 3.0 I think it was back in 1996. You had to pay $3 per hour for AOL. My grandpa would yell at me to get off the internet all the time because we didn't have much money as it was, plus he couldn't use the (rotary dial) telephone while I was connected.

 

Conversations in AOL chatrooms were like:

 

tohel69: Hey baby, A/S/L?

SugarBabyXxX: 14/m/ur moms house btch

I miss the old X-Files and RPG Bunker chatrooms on AOL. Those were the days.

Um, the Internet existed in 1998, it was pretty ubiquitous by the point.

He never said the Internet didn't exist. In 1998 many people were just getting or didn't even have Internet access yet depending on where you lived.

Do you really think the head of a major corporation really has the time or inclination to care about a relatively small gaming forum on the internet? Seriously?

Yes?

I think I read Netflix is not renewing with bigger networks like NBC. They are removing The Office in like September or something.

I miss manuals in general. I'm not as picky about owning the physical copy anymore over the digital, since manuals are now a thing of the past

The Binding of Isaac and Cave Story+ on Switch both came with manuals and they are glorious. I've missed them.

About the same chance as winning the lottery
