#13996806 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by Not Eric on 19 May 2018 - 03:13 AM

This move by BBY is literally going to keep Gamestop in business for many years to come.  Bravo BBY?

 

All things being equal I’ll stick to buying new games that are still sealed.

 

I wouldn't mind buying digital as much if there were better deals (I'm looking at you Nintendo), but then there's still those ridiculous bandwidth caps. I do not want to pay $50/mo extra for unlimited. They really need to raise (or remove) the cap when there are quite a few AAA games that are 90-150GB. It gets very annoying having to carefully monitor usage and predict other people's.


While I wish some of the sales were better, I do think Nintendo has the best rewards program on their shop. 5% back that you can immediately use on your next purchase is great. And I think the glut of games on the Switch has to eventually force publishers to be more aggressive with their discounts.

Guess it was inevitable. I’ll use it until it expires and then probably switch to Target for that red card discount. Not ready for the physical game apocalypse.

The Dishonored 1 code has expired but the code with the Dishonored 2 extras still works (redeemed this week). That being said, I wouldn't buy this simply for that little bit of content (it's really just stuff meant to give you a head start in the game). You're really in this for the added steelbook (and to a lesser extent the keychain) at the same price as a vanilla copy.

On a side note, how aggravating is the Batmobile in Arkham Knight?! I just got to the part of the game where you're being chased through a subway tunnel by the Arkham Knight's giant drill and I'm about ready to throw in the towel on the story mode. It's a super-huge pain-in-the-ass to drive this thing on tunnel ceilings when you don't have a 30-ton death machine nipping at your heels, so I have my doubts about how long I'm going to fight this. . . .

Do you like stealth segments? Do you like Batmobile segments? How about both at the same time!

Golden Week? More like Golden Weak!  8-[

 

Seriously though, there are some decent deals here. Been waiting for Street Fighter x Tekken to drop low and looking forward to playing that. On the fence about some of the Mega Man games. Kinda glad there weren't a ton of titles on sale I wanted--was worried I'd spend a small fortune. Considering Darkstalkers for the PSP too, but I don't remember hearing anything about it being either good or bad.

Do you really think you'll play a fighting game on your Vita?

Code Veronica X is actually worse on ps4 than ps3. ps4 version = ps2 game emulated. ps3 version = hd remaster. it's not a great remaster, but better than ps2 emulation on a ps4.

Thanks for the heads up. It was one of the few games in the bundle I would have been interested in. Only ever played the Dreamcast version before all the extras.

 

Everything else I either own on PS4 or Steam. And they probably came from previous bundles.

Can anyone speak on behalf of the Back to the Future game? I have been looking at it for a while and at this price may bite the bullet.

From what I remember it definitely leaned more in the direction of classic adventure games than recent Telltale games. More puzzles involving finding and combining the right objects, no quick time events, no choosing dialogue on a timer.

 

For fans of the movies I would say it's a good buy. It's straightforward like most adventure games are but it was a decent story, plus Christopher Lloyd and Tom Wilson return to reprise their roles.

Edit:  Just looked up the metacritic ratings on the other 4 games.. and wow it has to be the lowest rated 4 games ever offered on the service.. they must have really though offering up the 2 retail games on PS4 would really offset these junk titles.

The plan is to make the Vita and PS3 games so undesirable that nobody will care when they no longer get them.

 

All of those visual novels were step 1 of that plan.




#13970985 20% off PSN code for Farcry 5 quest

Posted by Not Eric on 26 March 2018 - 06:38 PM

Good looking out. Wouldn't have thought there would be anything besides avatars so soon after the other code. Hopefully this is a continuing trend. (Especially since neither of my accounts are receiving weekly emails again)

WWE 2K18 looks like trash and the career mode looks worse than usual. Pick up Fire Pro Wrestling on Steam or just watch a bunch of Botchamanias or OSW Review videos before putting yourself through that torture.

 

How is everybody’s golf?

I thought the single player was a boring grind but I really didn't put a lot of time into it. Definitely didn't enjoy it as much as the previous two entries.

 

Speaking of which, is this the time I use that 20% off code and finally buy that HSG Vita DLC? At least I don't have to worry about the clubs and balls DLC since the online is dead, just the courses and characters.

The only reason I haven't grabbed the Bloodborne DLC yet is I'm foolishly holding out until Friday in case there's a 20% off code.

 

So Firewatch is on sale for the $5 or $6. Is it worth picking up? I've heard it's pretty decent but also that it's crazy short. Thoughts?

I thought it was one of the better walking simulators, and it's a decent length for the genre (around 4 hours). I'd say it's worth it, but personally, I just wish the last quarter or so of the game had played out a bit differently. The rest is really good, and the structure makes it feel a lot more coherent than similar games.

I'm surprised people leave the sound effects on. I think they're all annoying.
