If you have a Sony UV account, be on the lookout for an email with the subject "ACCOUNT ALERT: Action Required" detailing that their streaming service will be shutting down at the end of the month.  If you are linked to UV and Vudu you should be fine, but there is an offer for a free MA movie in the email.  If you have a sizable collection of movies you may already have all the movies that are being offered, but if you do you can pass the code you get on to someone else.

Thanks so much!  I deleted the email after reading half of it.  Now I can enjoy ownership of Maid in Manhattan for some reason.

Leave the guy negative feedback ( https://www.cheapass...back/270445-rbk ). It won't get your payment, but at least it'll help warn others about him and remind you that this is not someone you want to do business with again.

If anyone else was scammed by this guy, they should leave negative feedback too so it shows site admins that he has a history of stealing items and should be banned from the website.

I'm still shocked that this person has such good feedback.  This either leads me to question the validity of CAG's feedback system or the validity of the comments here about RBK.  I suppose the third option is that RBK is somehow very adept at preventing negative feedback on this site.  I wish I knew the answer because this will make me extra cautious the next time I trade with anyone despite how good their feedback is.

 

For those of you wondering why RBK hasn't been banned, I assume mods would look at things like the overwhelmingly positive feedback history and say that the people reporting him must have some personal grudge, etc. and want to ignore it until they see more evidence.  I completely agree that negative feedback (if it's true information) should be the best way to allow this community to policy itself and then perhaps eventually mods would step in.  Again, I don't know how guilty or innocent RBK is, but people giving proper feedback should help everyone judge for themselves.

I can't fathom a 5 hour commute.  Mine is literally about 5 minutes when I don't take the kids to school.  I know i'm lucky.  It feels like someone could find a second job in the same 5 hours to make up some loss of income for a lower paying job with less commute.  I know it's easier said than done, though.

I have a house full of junk i've collected.  I have a garage full of extra junk that won't fit in the house.  I have a shed full of junk that won't fit in the garage.  Don't be so dead-set on physical things.  It all becomes worthless at some point even though it was very valuable in the beginning.  I understand the reasons for wanting to own physical media over digital, but many of the reasons are people just fooling themselves because they are addicted to having stuff.

Dear Sony,

 

What is the purpose of having weekly sales in which you add to an ever-growing list if you don't provide any way of letting people see "what's new" each week in any reasonably easy to view format?  I assumed you would have listened the last few times we've commented or complained, but I guess not.

 

Yours truly,

The Internet and Playstation Customers at Large

Just FYI.... just letters.... wont be delivered. Packages still being delivered. I know, im working

While the usps is federal, we are not like other agencies. We get zero tax $$ (not since 1980) so we have different rules. Volunteers that deliver packages tomorrow get an “admin day” down the road. A free day off of our choosing.

My neighbor is a stripper that dresses as a postman.  He also says packages will be delivered tomorrow.

Question: how RPGish is Borderlands? I've always stayed away from this game because I really just like to shoot stuff and blow things up, but I've heard so much amazing stuff over the years that I'm genuinely curious. Are the RPG elements overwhelming here? Will I spend 90 percent of my time upgrading my character and weapons and all that other boring stuff? Or is there enough explosions and things going boom to keep someone with a very short attention span (such as mine) busy?

 

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty light RPG.  If you like shooting stuff, this is for you.  The RPG stuff is just collecting new loot and comparing it to what you have and equipping it if it's better.  There is a skill tree but it's relatively basic.  It's hard to know what your frame of reference and tolerance is for RPG, but Borderlands is definitely not heavy or in-depth.  No spells to learn or potions to drink, etc.  It's definitely made for a mass audience to appeal to non-RPG players.

No one is talking about Game Pass?  Specifically Strange Brigade?  Game Pass continues to be an impressive service.  I hope it helps shape the industry in a positive way.

I'm pretty sure the XO3 which is the non-camo version of this is on sale for $30 at Best Buy or a couple places right now.  It's a solid choice for what you're looking for.  I'm sure there are plenty of other opinions including anti-Turtle Beach out there...

Doesn't look that hot, mine says this will be the deal until 12/15

 

I mean great price, but I am not sure we need to rush?

Yes, you do need to rush.  These often "run out of stock" before the deal ends for some reason.

Looks like my Scorpio X HDMI port has die. I think it's been going out for awhile but could get it to work if I kept switching input on my receiver. Getting this new tv I can't use the receiver without losing 4K and HDR signal, so the X is plugged straight into the TV. Tried different cords, hard boots, different tvs, and get no signal. Has anyone tried going to the Microsoft store and if so what is to be expected? There's a store 40 mins away from me.

Do not underestimate your cables and how they interact with all your equipment.  I had two different TVs with two different problems running through receivers and both ended up being cables that were supposed to be 4k capable cables.  I finally replaced them a couple times and it fixed the issue.  There are a lot of HDMI cable problems with 4k HDR incompatibility.  Also, there is a setting on the X for YBR and the color bitrate.  These can sometimes be incompatible with your receiver even if it is 4k ready.  Lastly, your receiver might be trying to process the signal and you might try turning off the processing of the video signal to see if that helps.

My favorite bacon was from my sister's pet pig Wilbur. She raised him from a little runt that she fed with baby bottle until he was delicious. He tasted better since you knew he was loved in this life. Obviously YMMV on slaughtering and consuming the meat of your beloved family pets.

That's some pig.  My spidey sense is tingling.

*WARNING*

Movie code sellers and buyers alike. I feel it is my civic duty to warn you about some shady business before you get ripped off or whatever intentions this user has with the double accounts. The new user "sher5625" that was just created last week is also user "jbloggs" as confirmed by the name on paypal "Pratish Pandit" and email "ebayinquiry@gmail.com". I'm not sure what the purpose of the sock account is but it can never be good. Possibly looking to steal or avoid a suspension. I can see no other reason to make a new account when you already have one for years and years other than to scam. I've contacted the mods about this and heard nothing back, they seem to be non-existent on this forum these days. If you decide to deal with either user sher5625 or jbloggs, they are the same person. Proceed with extreme caution.

 

 

While I agree that the new user name is odd, about a week ago I bought some codes from jbloggs and, other than him being slow, had a good experience.  Not sure what that means, but figured I would add some perspective.

 

It seems like there have been a lot of reports of shady users and dealings over the past week or so on CAG in different trade forums.  It makes me wonder if some user list was breached for CAG or something similar.
