#14110673 NBA Playgrounds 2 - Switch -$14.99 @ GameStop

Posted by inkcil on 27 December 2018 - 07:38 AM

If you didnt like the first one, you likely won't like this, sadly

Played it with my kids tonight and had fun.  Maybe it's all in my head.  I played the first one on game pass over the summer and just wasn't feeling the controls.  Shot meter and rebounding seem much more responsive to me.  Game feels slower, which I don't like, but the controls are tight.  


The grind is real in this game, though.  You only start out with like 10-12 players and the payouts for winning games is stingy.

Is this a good game for a preschooler?

I'm about to find out.  Will report back after nap time.

I remember playing Halo for the first time in 2002 and it was the first time I ever enjoyed a FPS.  Still, I wasn't motivated to play the sequels. 


Fifteen years later I played Halo 5 for a few minutes and didn't have much fun with it at all.  I have no idea why but I've never been much of a FPS fan (or multiplayer fan).  Halo 5 is $7.99 again at GS and I'm tempted to pick it back up and give it another try, even though it doesn't offer a lot for the single player. 


My favorite FPS was Unreal Tournament III.  Something about that game was just...perfect.  I'm a big 3rd person action/adventure fan, but that game had me hooked.  Had lots of single player options, vehicles, bots, hover board.  Just the perfect FPS IMO.  Wish someone would make Unreal Tournament 4.

Yeah I agree...total drama that could be easily avoided with pictures that match the text and transparent information. 


For instance, what are all the "select systems?"  I have an XB1 S I would like to trade in...but I have no time to do that tomorrow night after work unless I reformat my system tonight.  But I don't even know what the offer will be. 


GS likes to get us all excited with these "guessing games." 


I wonder if Mario then will trade in for $48 after elite...guessing games. drama.  gamestop. drama to the players.

No kidding, dude. I'm simply curious.

Yeah, sorry about that...dealing with little kids can make you obnoxious...they start to rub off on you, lol.  


Yeah I will report back...this particular store is a diamond in the rough and doesn't sweat the little things.  They moreso care about if you are trying to pull a fast one.  But if you are honest and upfront, they will work with you as long as you are spending your cash and not just flipping.

I've filled out surveys months later...don't know if it gets reviewed or not by GS corporate when you do it that late though. But the online review site will allow you to complete the survey basically no matter how old the receipt is.  You have 3 days if you want to be entered for the giftcard drawing, which I never won, which is why I stopped "rushing" to fill out the surveys within 3 days of purchase.

Anyone else hear that Elite level is going away starting tomorrow?

I was told that a message was sent out to the staff to inform them that starting tomorrow you cannot sign up for or renew Elite. Anyone else hear this?

Thanks for the heads up, btw.  I sho' 'nuf did renew based on your "rumor."

You're not making out as well as you think.  You can't use your elite 20% discount on the pre-owned games you get with your certs until  after the cert is applied.  A game I just got gave me a $50 discount for 40k points.  That 20% is the same as if you used credit and your PUR elite discount.  I'd rather use my points on extending my membership because I can't get a discount on it with PUR.  You're still spending about the same either way.

Well I'm not talking the difference between a Ferrari and a Camry in terms of which is more lucrative...just taking about making out ahead.  If I buy a $56.99 used game it's $49.92 after Elite and 9.5% tax.  If I use the $15 off pre-owned cert (12k points) its $36.78 after Elite and tax.  So 12k points saved me $13.14.   Multiply that by 2 (since we're trying to compare $30 to 30k points) and we save $26.28 using 24k points.  And I still have 6k points left over.  Every 1k points is worth $1.095...so multiply that by 30 and it comes to $32.85.  So on the surface using points you come out $2.85 ahead.  But then subtract the $1.42 I paid for tax and I came out $1.43 ahead using points instead of cash/credit. Since we were already taking about not wanting to pay a small tax, I think the analysis is relevant.  #CAG-life-Economics. 


Not to mention if GS brings back the Cyber Monday sale on pre-owned certs...

Sorry late to the show but the 70% is still going on today?

I'm in NorCal if that makes a difference...

No one has confirmed...it's not on the website.   70% was assumed based on past history of 50% bonuses in CA.  But we'll see...

Injustice 2 is not worth $40 or more at this point, especially digital with no resale value. It's been $40 on several occasions already. Wait for $20 or less...if you were a huge DC fan then you would have it already. So just wait imo

Happened to me once with a CS lady for my cellphone provider. How blatant was the flirting?

It was moderate...but totally not neccessary.  She was calling me "sweetie" and "winking" and sharing moderately personal information about herself.  I was like, oooookay.  How does she know I'm not crazy, or vice versa.  I wasn't offended or anything like that, just surprised.  If I was 15 years old I probably would have asked for her digits lol.  Man, the internet has opened up a whole new dimension for the youngstas.  I couldn't imagine coming up today with all these options and information (I'm over 40).   There was no internet when I graduated high school.  At least none available to me.  I still remember payphones lol.
