I like it better when people talk about food in this thread.

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 refuse to buy this out of principle, but some you guys might be down

You must be new here.  This is a double post. :)

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.




#14078018 PSN Weekly Deals - 12/11: Holiday Sale Week 1! Over 1200 items on sale!

Posted by WNYX585AM on 08 November 2018 - 07:53 PM

A new deal:

 

Timber Tennis: Versus - $1.79 - 10% Off - $1.59 - 20% Off - Ends 11/20

 

How can games not have screenshots on Sony's store?  I suppose this might be a sales strategy for some ultra cheap games, but Sony should have a requirement of video and screenshots for any game listed.

 

Also, yes, I know there's probably a ton of content elsewhere like Youtube that helps on this issue, but i'm an old man looking for something to complain about today.

It's so nice to start seeing Amazon's Black Friday prices this early so we can all plan ahead.

 I'm getting to the point with deals that unless it blows me away, i'm getting less and less interested.  There are just too many "free" options that i'm already locking myself into.  I realize this is a PSN thread, but I see stuff like PS Plus, Xbox Gold/GWG, Gamepass, EA Access, etc. as a very good deal for regularly getting "free" stuff.  Those services are already overwhelming me with new stock, so it's getting harder and harder to want to pay for anything.  Especially mediocre sales or mediocre humble bundles, etc.

No disrespect but, you should at least tell serious purchasers that the item is sold.

I don't have any issues with xiren187 (have purchased from him before with good experience), but I do agree with this.  I have had other sellers simply not respond to me either because they didn't like my offer or the item was sold.  Maybe I don't understand the volume of responses some sellers have to deal with, but it just makes good business sense and is good courtesy to respond as much as possible.

God of War says hi..both old and new...so probably not.

Old God of War games were just that 'games,' as opposed to the heavily prevalent walking simulator-esque sequences of the TLoU.

New God of War outclasses TLoU in pretty much every way, plus still has actual gameplay far more often than TLoU...GOW 2018 does TLoU style arguably better than TLoU

Btw, The Last of Us is a fucking fantastic game, but it's also overrated as Fuck.

Well, you really took the bait...
