Off topic SNES talk:
I'm a bit worried about my plans for getting an SNES. Does anyone have their plan of attack set? Thinking about last year I believe I had people lining up the night before which I don't really want to do but I get the feeling I might need to. Guess I'll dig out a camping chair and see about finding a battery for the Switch if needed. We didn't get our shipment in until 2 days ahead of time last year and its looking like it's the same case now.

I guess the big factor is how uniformed the general masses are. If like 5 hardcore guys are camping out overnight then I won't have to show up till like 7 AM probably, but if there are a hundred then it'll be needed. Have there been ads on TV or anything?

Overall I think I'm going to try Meijer's midnight release, then TRU if we have less in line than inventory, or try my luck at Best Buy if not. Over in the BB thread the numbers for 3 stores was 150, 66, and 156, though they probably include pre-orders in there.


SNES Classic stock is starting to show up at Target stores according to Brickseek. My local small store is showing 35 in stock for Friday.

Check the Target Inventory Tracker on Brickseek using DPCI 207-29-7001 and your zip code of choice.

Got the same email, took the quiz, also don't see reduced price on the Redeem page. Check back later I guess.

Earliest gaming memory- I got a NES for Christmas when I was 6. The NES box said "for ages 7 and up" and my parents teasing me that I couldn't play it yet since my birthday was two weeks away.
Got it set up, played some Duck Hunt and raged against that laughing dog.

I vote yes, may as well get people educated with accurate, helpful info rather than withhold it.

Don't own a PS4 but that $229 PS4 Slim Uncharted 4/TLOU bundle is tempting, especially with a GS --> AMZ credit transfer.

Same. Putting it towards Little Nightmares and/or Superhot.

Has anyone who bought an e-book in the new Books store for Windows 10 get their free $5 yet? I think it was supposed to be delivered via email but I haven't seen anything so far.

Channeling my inner Ron Swanson:
I bought some games. I traded in some games. It was a profitable weekend. Those are all the details anyone needs to know.

Thanks BB for all your hard work!

So what's the best place to sell game codes now a days? I've heard way too many ebay horror stories so I'd like to avoid that if possible.

 

Or is there anyways to put it for sale on ebay that will take steps to protect me as the seller?

 

Gameflip.  Check out their website or download their app.  I've sold plenty of digital and physical items through them with no issues.

I'm a little worried about Mass Effect. Either they are going to Mirror's Edge it and just dump it out to die with no promotion or they are going to delay it. I mean after all N7 day falls on a Tuesday this year. That or maybe its a complete mess.

Something is wrong. They have shown nothing substantial of the game and now its out in 2 months? This screams red flag.

Is this another No Man's Sky where they promised the universe and just put out empty space?

It was barely mentioned at E3 for 2 years, 2 N7 days have come to pass with nothing shown except some horrible facial animations.

Something is a miss. I hope I am wrong. I hope it is a pleasant surprise, a new beginning for the franchise. With nothing shown, I'm having my doubts. I think it will end up being middle of the road. It wont be as terrible as original 3 but it wont be as good as 1 or 2.

I would be very careful if you are planning to buy it digitally. Buy it with GCU or gamefly it. A new engine, nothing shown, and it being randomly dropped should be a concern, even if you are made of money or don't care because it is Mass Effect. Be intelligent and don't reward them blindly. They haven't given you a reason that this will be worthwhile. At the very least hopefully play the EA access trial first. Now if they don't have a trial for it, then be extremely concerned.


I'm not a Mass Effect super fan, but I don't agree with this take. Game Informer just had Mass Effect Andromeda as their December cover story which had a lot of content in it. Plus, there was the info that came out on N7 day.
I would say they are slowly release details so as to avoid a No Man's Sky situation where the game had radically changed from its initial showing to release.
That being said, I agree to be smart with your money, try the EA Access trial if you can, and hold off on preorders until reviews are out there.

I'm new to microsoft rewards may a couple months

after the recent awesome deal to cash them in I decided I'd put in some effort earning them through all the little things you can click on and do for points here and then

started yesterday and it's been nothing but a pain in the ass. I don't get the points or I get them and they are taken away a few minutes later.

other people have those issues? I'm specifically talking about like browsing with edge and bing and all that, this morning none of it is giving me points at all


I've been using Microsoft/Bing Rewards almost daily for about a year and this might be the first time where points aren't counting as they should. Hopefully it's resolved before the end of the day since it's a bonus weekend.

Is the TIV for a 1TB Xbox one also $125 or do you get more for the larger hard drive?

So I am playing Battlefield 4 during the EA Free Play Days. I ran into a campaign glitch that reset a majority of my progress- I can't even access levels I have completed through the Level Select screen. Reading up on it, it sounds like this glitch was/is a major issue.

Was it ever fixed or is there a workaround?
