#14064624 ►Best Buy: Get $10 in Rewards or Gift Card w/Pre-Order

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.




#14047477 Qvc 2018 LG Oled TV Special

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.

Outside of building my own PC, buying an LG OLED in 2016 is probably the best decision I’ve ever made in terms of technology/entertainment. Still happy with my 65B6 but I’d be tempted to upgrade to a C8 for the right price.

Hollow Knight is good, but count me amongst those who rage quit. I don’t have time for bosses who still aren’t dead after you kill them three times. When I kill someone three times I expect them to stay DEAD!

Still on the fence for Uncharted Lost Legacy but today is my last day to decide before my PS+ expires and I no longer have the discount. So I'm leaning toward yes just because of that. Not sure when I'll be able to resub, so yeah.

I finally finished Lost Legacy last weekend and I ended up really liking it. I stalled out on it a few months ago because I didn't care for the more open-world section early in the game, but once you get past that and into the more classic, linear Uncharted levels I enjoyed it a lot. Might have even liked it more than Uncharted 4 (and 3, for that matter).

Finally getting around to playing Horizon and I'm really enjoying it. Was excited to see the complete edition on sale so I figured the Frozen Wilds stand-alone would also be discounted, but nope! Always annoying when the complete edition is on sale but not the DLC.

Dropping in to check on the old thread and between all the 2080 price talk and posts from Libertarians I don't know why I ever left!
