This is more of something in-stock than an actual savings deal, I know. But thought I'd the update/discovery with everyone, in case fans of the game were looking. :)




#12283595 Amazon's Holiday Deals Calendar: Cyber Monday Deals Week

Posted by wongjp on 29 November 2014 - 09:14 AM

In previous years, weren't the Deal Calendars fleshed out and at least detailed for at least a week? This year was really lame compared to previous years for Amazon.  

 

It's like I went in all prepped but witnessed very little in the way of games and movies I was interested in.




#12165111 2014 CAG Extra Life 24 hour Gaming Charity Marathon - #FTK

Posted by wongjp on 16 October 2014 - 08:29 PM

I will be livestreaming on Saturday, October 25th, from around 8:00am to the following day, Sunday, at around 8:30am or so :-)

 

My Twitch page is here:

www.twitch.tv/wongJP

 

My game schedule is a work in progress, but I'm having friends over at various times. Here's the Google Doc link:

I'm at 65% of my goal, and hope to pick up the rest over next week and during the stream!

Here are some tips that I provided to my local Extra Life guild, by the way!

 

Extra Lifers, some tips I remember from last year, especially for those of you who plan to livestream! 
1. Charge all of your game controllers (recharge your batteries if you have those too) before and during the event.
 
2. Run all the games you plan to play before game day (in the event they need to download patches/updates/etc). Make sure your motion controllers, Kinect, etc. are set up earlier, too.
 
3. Update early, update often, update everywhere (FB, Twitter, Instagram, E-mail, etc).
 
4. Have easy-to-eat foods for Game Day. Snacks that won't grease up your fingers, wraps or something easy to eat for meals. It's like the one day of the year I'll have an energy drink at the late hours 
 
5. Test your A/V setups if they are a bit complex. I've run into issues with my hardware/streaming setup and have backup plans/workarounds to minimize any livestream downtime.



#12033225 2014 CAG Extra Life 24 hour Gaming Charity Marathon - #FTK

Posted by wongjp on 24 August 2014 - 03:58 AM

Last year I raised just over $1,500 for my local Children's Hospital (Children's Hospital Orange County aka CHOC).

 

You can view my 2013 marathon video here:

 

I had donor raffle prizes like games, Steam codes and so on.  This year I plan to have some cooler stuff, too. I've established contact with a few publishers/developers for some game swag and have already received some goods.  Also, thanks to the holidays and Black Friday, I picked up a thing or two for those who donate a larger amount. More details on that as the gaming marathon approaches :)

 

The plan is to livestream again on Saturday, October 25th (the suggested date for the Extra Life marathon as of this writing).




#11953635 Destiny: Limited Edition Pre-Order Still Available Best Buy - $99 (...

Posted by wongjp on 24 July 2014 - 10:40 PM

Bungie will allow all access in about 20 minutes.
 
 
"Today, at 4:00 PM PDT, we’re opening the Destiny Beta to anyone who wants to create a character and walk in their boots. There are, of course, some requirements. You’ll need to have a compatible console equipped with PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold. You’ll need to be brave."



#11949582 Destiny: Limited Edition Pre-Order Still Available Best Buy - $99 (...

Posted by wongjp on 23 July 2014 - 04:25 PM

I put down $5 in store for Destiny Limited Edition. Any way I can pay it all off before release and get GCU to apply? Or will I have to pay off the whole $100 + tax?

I don't know, as I haven't put a partial amount down for pre orders in the past. I don't have GCU either :(

(Someone else on CAG should be stepping in with more experience on this soon? :)




#11914058 BestBuy Destiny Limited Edition/ ghost edition Up for preodering, get in on...

Posted by wongjp on 11 July 2014 - 07:40 PM

Everyone who helped/bugged Best Buy/updated this thread is awesome. Thanks for helping out. Got mine on preorder for in-store pickup.
Does anyone know if the in-store allows you to get it at a midnight release? Or do you have to wait until the day it's actually out and their deliveries come?

I believe Matt at the BBY forums said it depends on whether or not your store will have midnight release, and to check back. I can't see why not. Something this marketed will probably arrive the day prior for a midnight launch event.

#11914045 BestBuy Destiny Limited Edition/ ghost edition Up for preodering, get in on...

Posted by wongjp on 11 July 2014 - 07:38 PM

This was a bit saucy apparently, and got deleted from the BB forums, so I'll just leave what I wrote before it got killed.   :)

 

Hello, gamers, look at your console, now back to me, now back at your console, now back to me. Sadly, it isn’t me, but if it stopped pre-loading the Digital Guardian Edition and you switched to a Ghost Edition, it could look good next to me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re in The Tower with the guardian your guardian could look  like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s a Ghost Edition with two expansions to that thing you love. Look again, the expansions are now rares. Anything is possible when your Destiny smells like a Ghost Edition and not a standard. I’m on a Sparrow.




#11325610 Monoprice.com - Need HDMI, Optical Audio, Component, or Other Cables, Get The...

Posted by wongjp on 06 December 2013 - 07:42 PM

What are the newest HDMI that can do 3D are they 1.3 or something else?

1.4 versions are the latest:

http://en.wikipedia....i/HDMI#Versions

 

I read that 1.3 does it just fine.. as evidenced by many friends who probably have 1.3 cables and don't even realize it. Moreover, Monoprice's cables support 3D (check their item descriptions).




#11306313 Frys.com Black Friday Weekend Sale

Posted by wongjp on 01 December 2013 - 05:03 PM

The Fry's on Sepulveda and Manhattan Beach still has plenty of 1 Year PS+ cards for $27.99. It almost looks like no one has touched them since yesterday.


Nice to see other CAGs on the area and posting their finds at that location too :)


#11302632 Microsoft Black Friday Ad (Deals going on right now)

Posted by wongjp on 30 November 2013 - 03:14 PM

MGS Rising shipped for me yesterday, however I also was able to make an order early on when the site launched and got bogged down (went to the mobile site at that time). It still showed up in stock as late as early yesterday, though?




#11290289 Microsoft Black Friday Ad (Deals going on right now)

Posted by wongjp on 28 November 2013 - 05:36 AM

WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW, AZURE SERVERS!!! :( :(

 

I have my friend to thank about checking the mobile site...

 

It looks like "Metro: Last Light" was $59.99, yet it says "Sold Out", so maybe it WAS 9.99? What a fail.

 

On a side note, TRU's site is freaking out as well. What is this, 2001? Netscape Navigator? :(

CAGers, try using your mobile device. m.microsoftstore.com - Was able to nag MGS Rising for $9.99 this way.
