#14296152 itch.io [Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality] - $5 for hundreds of games

Posted by lutz on 10 June 2020 - 07:36 AM

I've seen this posted elsewhere but not here to my knowledge.  For a minimum of $5 donation you get access to over 1,000 items.  Many excellent games included: Minit, 2064, Night in the Woods, Celeste, Overland, A Short Hike, way too many to mention here.  Some are not video games but there are hundreds of games in the bundle.




In for $5, but would be great if OP set up a list in the first post of worth while items (perhaps with a spoiler tag?). The search feature on itch is horrible, you'd have to know which specific title name you were looking for just to find it. There's a lot of garb... lesser titles obstructing all the value/hidden gems.

Yakuza Remastered Collection is $40 on Amazon right now (also supposedly on Bestbuy too).  This was what I was waiting on.  Yeah, I know, amazon shipping, but as long as it's intact and not beat up too bad... I'm cool with it.




I don't have prime, so will have to wait for the slow free shipping.  But I'm in no rush.

In for one, hopefully not crushed too badly or at all!

Make it 4, BT4 gave me the trilogy as well. It's like I was able to get 12 games from the Humble Choice this month lol

Probably a bit.  The main thing that annoys me is the box being a different size than CSIII's CE.  The fact that it includes a legit soundtrack justifies the purchase for me, as it did for III.


Anyone know a way to nab 5 quick rewards points on nisa's store?  (I'm 495/500 with the minimum redemption being 500.)

Pretty sure you have to buy something to get points. With the cheapest thing being a $5 downloadable guide to Grim Grimoire, you'd be spending $5 to get a $5 coupon.

Xenoblade Chronicles pre-owned on 3DS for $15.99 today: https://www.gamestop...d/10120264.html

A small part of me died seeing this while staring at my sealed copy on the shelf. I should have known this was coming as I preordered the Switch version.

Meh I will wait till they make the next port years down the road.  I still haven't played vanilla. And from what I heard they didn't add enough to justify double dipping in the second version of 5 compared to p3p and a lesser extent golden.  Now if they set it up in royal so that you only used points for the day when increasing your stats and such and not for s links that would be a major change that is very much needed.


gamestop has the buy 2 get 2 free sale going so I picked up what wasn't sold out that could apply for it.  world of ff vanilla, dq world trees woe and the blight below, that shonen jump all stars game and penguin wars as filler. Nothing else was in stock that I wanted (deception 4, god wars, one piece new game and so on and what was in stock I already have like underwater ray romano mask of deception, digimon cyber sluts and grand kingdom via psn sales among others. I was almost tempted to pick up atelier firis and nelke since the former was 22 and the latter 18 but I still haven't played the arland and dusk trilogies besides Ayesha let alone the 5 on ps2.


  It just seems like Mask of deception and truth have done nothing but drop further and further in price since I bought them when they went on sale on psn the first time for 12.50 each and then they have them in the gs sale just to throw more salt.


I agree there is some risk for P5 price dropping. It is a remaster from Atlus, and recently they have been making enough. Catherine wasn't even on the PS4 like Persona 5 did, and it was fairly easy to find Catherine Steelbook or collector editions at a discount. I know i felt it as I paid full price and saw it for $25 on black friday. It is worth picking up though, they added more content then Golden did for P4. There's a whole new semester and new locations, in addtion to the new character and hookshot mechanics.


As for Utawarerumono, it is worth noting that the publisher is different for the prequel game (NIS instead of Atlus). Heck, you can't even pre-order this game on Amazon, which leads me to consider the possibility of a slightly limited run (I regret not picking up Ys VIII steelbook edition).

I see that but for when they're restocked...

They usually don't gut consoles, even in stores. A lot of games mailed to you from the online store is actually from a relatively local retail store, so no surprised on your gutting luck.

the launch / steelbook version of Persona 5 Royal is down to $49.94 on amz, likely matching wm's instore pricing.


comes with bonus bubble mailer damage.

For some reason, this is the number 1 seller for upcoming PS4 games on Amazon. Beating Resident Evil 3 and Final Fantasy 7

I just beat Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. I'd say it was pretty good. 8/10. I recommend it. I played it on the switch and, outside of my switch screwing up (which was no fault of the games), the game played well. It's kind of like Shantae, for reference

You should try Wonderboy Dragon's Trap. It's basically what the game was based off of.

Can someone confirm for me if the $200 PS4 bundle includes any PSN trial voucher or PSN discount code? Thx!

No trial or psn code. Just the horizon/god code and physical last of us.

#14192339 Target: 50% off a select Switch game with Switch purchase

Posted by lutz on 24 July 2019 - 06:21 PM

Just a PSA, but the new switch model which cost exactly the same price will have significantly better battery life next month (4.5-9 instead of 2.5-6.5).


Up to you if saving $30 (at best) is worth the decreased battery life of your console.


To those always dockers, the new model will also be less hot and may have slightly better performance.

They are price matching Gamestop if anyone wants to get it from there.


$20 at Amazon for Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash - No Shirt, No Shoes, All Service Edition.



Hmm... do I want it gutted with heavy shelf wear, or crushed in a bubble mailer.... decisions decisions....

He hurt people's feelings. If it sits outside others narrow vacuum, they can't tolerate it. Typical.

That user was a new account and he practically went straight here to attack what he perceived as weeaboo nerds mad about losing out on anime titties. If that didn't even at least ring a red flag to you...


Even after mentioning how bias censorship is affecting both the player base and developers, said user demanded justification of all censorship which is unrelated to the grievances expressed by the community. Going beyond would have been political and off topic.


It's a fact that he purposely lead the discussion beyond the scope of niche gaming. Freedom of speech is great, but you can't use it to incite violence or defamation. I haven't read the forum rules to extreme scrutiny, but surely he must have broken some rule for the mods to step in.


Saying snowflakes couldn't handle a whittle troll is an easy cop out on your end.
