#14040458 Best Buy Shadow of War-Gold Edition 19.99 Pre GCU

Posted by dontBlink86 on Yesterday, 10:36 PM

Will there be a GOTY version since they announced a "Definitive Edition"? https://www.gamespot...s/1100-6460876/


Symantics. First Mordor game had a GOTY. Witcher 3 had a complete edition. Forget what the other was, but I'm petty sure there was a 3rd game that had the same treatment from the publisher and all 3 had game saves that were incompatible but also got new trophy lists.

Why does it have a 3.8 user rating on Metacritic?


Because the gaming public spazzed out over non-essential microtransactions so they downvoted it to hell. Solid game at launch. Even better post launch. Well worth this price, trying to decide if I want to double dip on the Xbox version or wait for GOTY version with a separate trophy list like all WB games have.

Good guy OP.


#14022266 My Best Buy Member Offer: Destiny 2 for $5.99/4.79

Main story was decent. Can't bring myself to go back go it for end game, but I enjoyed the playthrough. Worth it for sure to run through at this price.

Thanks OP, went ahead and imported AC Rogue Remaster since they did not do a US physical release. Dicks.


#14017231 Yakuza 0 PS4 price drop 19.99 @bestbuy 15.99 with GCU

I have to select having it shipped first, then on the checkout screen it gives you the option to change to store pickup for $1 off. If you do store pick from the get go, the $1 off doesn't seem to generate for some reason.


It's because it's an incentive to do store pickup. They don't do it if you're already getting it in store.

The item also has to be in stock at that store for the option to show up.


#14014943 Playstation 4 Greatest Hits arriving June 28th ($19.99 msrp)

Posted by dontBlink86 on 21 June 2018 - 03:22 AM

I just got a PS4 Pro over e3 week so cool for me. I was late to the PS2 party also and by that time the PS2 greatest hits library was huge. Target used to run 3 for $30 deals every couple months. I still have a backlog from that. Hopefully Horizon is in the next round.


Horizon has been 10$ base game and 20 complete at Best Buy all week

You're a good person OP.


#14008821 Dragon's Crown Pro Best Buy - $29.99/$23.99 GCU Save $1 w/...

Posted by dontBlink86 on 10 June 2018 - 11:43 PM

Really want to want this... but limited improvements and a shared trophy list, no reason not to just play the ps+ copy from ps3 :/

Sweet metal case for it for those new to the party.

I totally agree with this sentiment and am the same way (I pretty much exclusively buy physical games, with few exceptions) but it's unfortunate to remember that 15-20 years down the line even the games we try to play now on these systems won't be the same since updates and dlc won't be available. Unless mods and hacking to save and backup that content becomes more common and accessible


It is very frustrating. I go out of my way to get complete editions with content on the disc for that reason. I had Witcher 3 and season pass.. bought complete. Same with shadow of mordor, Horizon, Borderlands etc. Will suck being unable to play some of these games as they should have been released (pat ched) or without the extra content that is often pretty sweet.

I use to be a die hard physical disc guy but with steam and the high capacity hard drives  over the years my stance has softened.  
I have no issue buying a cheap digital copy from them and with their library interface the games are at your fingertips. MS has done a good job porting over 360 games.   The real test will be when they end 360 live support because once they ended the original xbox it was very weird.


That's my biggest concern with digital. Steam has established themselves very well as here to stay because the platform the games released on is always relevant and makes money. Concerned as these online shops end service like the PSP and Wii have. As things have gone more digital/available day 1 on the new platforms the assumption is they keep it available in some form... but 15 years from now when I want to replay classics from this gen, I'll be glad to have discs of Horizon and God of War etc.

Bought MHW at launch and was none too impressed with the performance on regular Xbox One. Can anyone speak to the post launch patches improving the experience. Either PS4 Pro or Xbox One X owners, as I have both.


My friend bought digital and we game share...I wasn't impressed on VCR Xbox.

I bought it and played on my ps4 pro... huge difference in fidelity and frame drops. Just upgraded to a One X and tried again... same boost as the pro. MHW well worth playing on one of the updated systems.


#14005859 Shaq Fu - Free on Switch!?!?!?!? YMMV

Posted by dontBlink86 on 06 June 2018 - 02:28 PM

I'd be 100% in on day one if they rereleased Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey.  IT LOOKS SO REAL.  YOU CAN ROTATE THE CAMERA AROUND THE PUCK.


Sounds like the next new feature for EA's sports titles. Your franchise mode is from the point of view of the ball/puck. Work your way up from the assembly line to the 3 drives you're used in a game before being incinerated.


#13987424 PSA: Amazon Prime going up to $119/yr starting May 11

Posted by dontBlink86 on 28 April 2018 - 04:45 PM

$10/month for Prime Video, 2 day shipping, Kindle and Music services...
 
Yet people gladly pay $8-10 (or more) for Netflix...


Yes and no. Netflix is focused, Amazon is a bit of forced bundle for more features. If I could pay less for just the 2 day shipping, that's all I really care about. I don't have a kindle, use their music service, and really only watch prime video for a few Nick shows my kids watch

The Switch is also continuing to be listed at 300 because it means they'll have some in stock.
