Fallout franchise sale.


Since Microsoft bought Bethesda, I'm not expecting these games to get any cheaper.

They'll probably be removed.

#14335370 PSN Weekly Deals - 10/14: Halloween & Games Under $20 Sales!...

Though I own it, I haven't played Witcher 3 yet, so I can't speak for that game in particular, but I have to admit that I'm not a fan of when games try to shove some kind of message down your throat, whether it's requiring you to make a moral choice or anything else.


Like, I just played through Mad Max a couple weeks ago and there are literally hundreds of collectables that you need to pick up if you want to plat the game.  One of them are "History Relics" (photographs of a time before the apocalypse.)  After damn near every single one of them, Max makes some kind of cynical comment about how much better the world was back then.  Like picking up a postcard of a couple on the beach and he'll be all, "There was a time when water was plentiful; who'd have known what we'd do to it."  After the first couple times, you think, "Yeah, sucks about what happened."  After a dozen times, it's turned into, "Yeah, Max, we get it, the environment is important, give it a rest."  After 103 times, you just want to yell, "Shut up, Max! You deserve the crapsack world you're stuck in!"


But yeah, I don't want some kind of moral choice to constantly be thrown at me, like they're trying to constantly make me feel bad about making poor choices.  I like the classic style of storytelling that prevailed up until the 90s before everything had to have gray-and-gray morality.  I don't want to know the sad tale of why Ganon or Kefka or any other villain wants to destroy their world, I don't want to feel sympathy for them and I definitely don't want to redeem them.  I guess I just like my heroes to be good and my villains to be evil.

I had Witcher 3 in the backlog for a while.  Started playing it a 2 months back and I am on the final few missions in the last DLC.  It's a good game that takes forever to play.  There is so much content, some of which requires you to make moral choices.  Not so much that it detracts from the overall game in my opinion.


To each his or her own.


Two things: 


1.  The horse controls suck; racing sucks.

2.  Save before you do the abandoned inn.

Wish 2K would do NHL and NFL games again

EA has the NFL license locked up through 2026.

Thanks NFL.

I’ve never seen any of these in a dollar tree. There are several I stop at when I am around them. I am guessing inventory is highly regional.

Check your e-mail for promo codes on the Homeworld series. Mine shows this:


That might be worth considering if you feel like contributing to Randy Pitchford's legal defense fund.

Thanks. I had the code. Paid around 9 for the whole deal. It said that I save around 110 bucks.

Selection, quantity and delivery frequencies will vary by store.

How much actually gets put out by the stock team is another factor. If the store doesn't have a lot of staff, they could easily get backed up on freight. Often times, a fair amount of product will be sitting in the backroom. So If you're looking for a specific item and don't see it on the sales floor, don't be afraid to ask an employee to check in the back or pull up inventory.

This is an issue everywhere. Businesses don't want to hire adequate staff. They want to run bare minimum. Walmart is the worst.

You should join the cheapassgamer unleaded (opposite of premium) club. To be a member all you have to do is be ultra cheap like instead of buying games at launch wait til they're out awhile and pay $20 or less. I don't find the games any less satisfying if I wait.

A member for decades. I can't recall ever paying full launch retail for a game.

Of course, I am 2+ years behind the trends.

#14307093 Nintendo 2DS XL System w/ Mario Kart 7 Pre-installed, Black & Turquoise...

Posted by CritcalJ on 18 July 2020 - 01:59 PM

So just curious, anyone compare using the 2DSXL vs that RG350 thing? I am kind of interested in setting up something for handheld PS1 gaming.

I don't have the RG350 but I have thought about buying one.  I have put a little study into it.


If you want just PS1, I'd go with it.  A lot more flexibility and ability to adjust for troublesome games.  Seems like it runs some dreamcast games as well.


If you want to be able to play 3DS games then the N2DS is the obviouis choice.  PS1 works but it seems that injection is the best way to make it work.  It's not hard to convert an iso to cia, but it is time consuming.

Do I put a bigger SD Card in the 3DS before or after installing CFW?

I installed with the 4gb. Changed to 32gb after I was done.
