#14078162 Best Buy Black Friday Ad

Posted by DickDangus on 08 November 2018 - 10:54 PM

If you have $1500 to burn you're really doing yourself a disservice by not going a bit further and getting an OLED, especially since since 65B8 or 55C8 can be had for ~$1500 already (without tax or shipping). I don't like spending too much time on slickdeals but if you look around there you'll find good OLED deals pretty regularly. Also, I wouldn't worry too much about authorized dealers as long as the seller is reputable.

This might be the first BF where I don't buy any games at all. But I like some of those UHD deals.

Perhaps this has already been posted but this is a pretty dang good remake of P.T. and it still scares the living shit out of me:

I haven't watched a football game in over three years and I pretty much hate everything about the sport and the NFL but I would probably rather watch tonight's game than play any more of this Fallout 76 beta.




#14069581 25% off one game with gcu expiring - Best Buy

Posted by DickDangus on 23 October 2018 - 05:19 PM

Used mine on the PC version of Fallout 76. GCU + 25% off + $10 certificate isn’t half bad for a game I am sure to hate.

Thanks, good to know. Would prefer Steam but as long as there are no discs involved I am happy.

Just got a 25% off code from Best Buy and I saw that Fallout 76 for Windows actually had a physical copy that will allow me to stack GCU, the promo code, and get a $10 cert. But I’ve never ordered a “physical” Windows game from Best Buy. Am I correct in assuming it’s just a Steam code in a box?

Since we're back to story talk I did want to poop in and quickly say that after getting to about 50% completion in the new Tomb Raider I do understand some of the more harsh review scores. The game looks nice and the gameplay is still solid, which is what mostly matters to me so I'm more than happy with my purchase, but wow, the story and the writing really is shit. For a series that's always been bad on that front this game is somehow far worse than I would have imagined. Reboot Lara has always been annoying, but everything about her is just nails-on-chalkboard grating in this one, and you can't really escape since there are some unskippable scenes and even when just running around she feels the need to comment on everything she sees and there are times I need to take a break from the game just to get away from her.

 

Seriously--there are times I need to take a break from this game in order to escape the main character because she is so fucking annoying. I've never had to say that about any game that doesn't start with Final and end in Fantasy. Sometimes I jump into a pit of spikes just to see her die.

Just like week I was crying to a friend about how the lack of Katamari Damacy on PC is one of the greatest travesties to befall mankind. Can’t wait to roll up some grandmas in December.

They must have learned from their mistakes on FH3, cause this is great. I've had $150 in MS credit rotting away for nearly a year and I'm about to dump most of it on the ultimate edition.

Forza Horizon 4 seems pretty well optimized on PC. Just finished up the intro that takes you through all the seasons and then drove around a bit, and on Ultra settings in glorious 3440x1440p I never dropped a frame below 60fps. I tried unlocking the framerate and it stayed pretty close to my monitor's max 100hz refresh rate. Also, I'm happy to report that you can actually adjust the brightness in the PC version, which was a feature that I recall was lacking in FH3.

Just pooping in to say I'll be skipping all of the cutscenes in the new Tomb Raider, just like I always do in those games. If I had time to waste on god awful filth I'd rather spend it here in this thread.

Posted by DickDangus on 03 September 2018 - 06:07 PM

You need a better sales pitch.  How much you expect to pay for a 65 inch TV?  $5000?  $4000? $3000?  How about 6 easy payments of only $999.99!

 

Also, what's with the warranty?  I thought those were scams in general.  Do you need to buy a warranty for OLEDs?  Will they rust up on you?  

I paid mine off by avoiding Taco Bell for 6 months. Not only did I save enough money to buy a $2000 TV, but I can finally walk from the couch to the refrigerator without losing my breath.

Would gladly jump on this for eshop or PSN credit, but I've already got more Xbone credit than I know what to do with.
