#14128849 PSA GameStop is changing its pre-order refund policy

Posted by Rodster on 10 February 2019 - 11:13 PM

Who waits 30 days or more to pick up a game they preordered?

 

The bigger question is, who even pre-orders anymore? The trend is digital delivery and even if someone pre-orders there’s a good chance the price will drop within 2-3 weeks of release. The last time I pre-ordered a game was in 2008.




#14109461 Xbox One X (brand new) $339.99 @ ebay

Posted by Rodster on 24 December 2018 - 10:45 PM

same here. not worth. we’ve had to s’s so far and the os is shit. we sold one and kept one for the few exclusives. with my luck with xbox consoles id rather wait

 

Same here and i'm pro XBOX since the 1st console they put out. I second the OS i.e. the user interface is one giant clusterfuck that keeps getting worse with each major update. This Gen, I purchased a PS4 Pro and most of my gaming is done on that so no need to get an X1X and really other than Forza, what must have exclusives does Microsoft have that's worth getting a new system for?

 

I'd rather wait for the next round of consoles to see if Microsoft can do better with exclusives.




#14103257 Burnout™ Paradise Remastered $6 on PSN

Burnout Paradise wasn't the best in the series. The one EA should have remastered was Burnout 3: Takedown.




#14100943 Playstation Classic Pre-order @BB, GS, Walmart, Amazon, & Target

Posted by Rodster on 10 December 2018 - 12:38 AM

I see the hacking scene is moving along rapidly with this. Can add games just using a USB flash drive and play them from there. Going to wait a bit more as it continues to evolve and then maybe finally buy one of these systems. I do have $20 in Best Buy reward certs waiting for me to use on this.

 

As others have said, none of that won't matter if the emulation problems still exists. If the PS1 games still play like shit because of the emulation then it's still only worth around $20 max.




#14098811 Playstation Classic $79.99 at Best Buy (Open Box)

Posted by Rodster on 06 December 2018 - 04:40 PM

In its current state just based off of all the reviews it's not even worth $29.99 and that's being generous. Now if someone finds a way to hack it and allows to play PS1 ISO's hanging off a USB drive and let's you attach a DS4 controller via USB, then i'd be willing to pay more.

 

Sony once again found a way to Fuck up another good idea. The last time they did that, they introduced the PS Vita.




#14093264 PS4 Slim 1TB + Extra Controller + RDR 2 $199.99 - 12am EST at Walmart

Posted by Rodster on 27 November 2018 - 01:31 PM

TBH, I am disappointed in Wal Mart as a whole for this entire weekend.  Their website crashed extremely fast on Black Friday and then they have a great sale and it lasts 15 seconds on Monday morning that started two minutes early.  I had it able to check out and it wouldn't go through for shipping or store pickup, oh well.

 

I was at WM on Thursday and had some things my wife wanted picked out in 10 minutes and it took me an hour and ten minutes to check out.  Apparently, there was a fight at the front of the store that caused a great delay...   maybe because they were so disorganized people got pissed.

 

I did get what I needed in person and was able to order an MK8 Switch bundle online, but the entire experience has left me disliking Wal Mart even more than I already did.

I guess you've lived a sheltered life and have never shopped at Walmart? Let me clue you in as a former Walmart employee, they attract the lowest common denominator of the human species. I'm glad you and yours made it out alive to tell your story.

 

Here's a small sample of what you're really missing out on.  http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/  :)

 

Their website can't handle the traffic because they switched from AWS to Microsoft cloud based services. They got into a pissing match with Amazon so they took their website hosting services away from Amazon and gave it to Microsoft.




#14032522 Shadow of war and season pass 19.99 total at gamestop ps4 only

Posted by Rodster on 29 July 2018 - 03:47 PM

Not to sound underhanded. Bur what if we return shadow of war? Will we get to keep the season pass? Or will there be a price difference in return value? I just need the season pass, got the game for $10 awhile ago.

 

No need to apologize. It's better to take advantage of Gamestop than to be this guy:

#14025186 Microsoft Rewards Breakdown

Posted by Rodster on 16 July 2018 - 02:25 AM

I was late to the party by about 10 years. I started about a year ago and in the mean time i've scored several games for free and yesterday I had enough points to purchase 1 year FREE of XBL Gold. MS was running a special which allowed you to buy 12 months of XBL Gold for 24,000 points instead of 29,000 pts.

 

Racking up the points is pretty easy too. If you have Windows 10 go to https://microsoft.com/rewards and sign in to your Microsoft rewards account with the Microsoft Edge browser. From there you'll see give me points each day and if you do searches from within the Edge browser you get 170 points each day. Then download the Bing Search app on either Android or iOS and do searches from within the app and you'll get another 100 pts each day.

 

I usually rack up about 9,500 pts each month. Sometimes even more and this really only takes me around 5 minutes each day to achieve. The worst part is that about 10 years ago when MS started the Bing program they were giving people about 5x the points each day for doing searches with Bing. 

 

Anyways, if anyone has any questions they want answered let me know and i'll try and answer them for you. But yeah, there's no reason to ever pay for XBL Gold again, not when you can get it for free with so little effort.




#14020111 12-Month Xbox Live Gold Membership (Digital Delivery) for $41.64

Posted by Rodster on 03 July 2018 - 04:55 PM

I don't know about you but I have a pretty demanding full time job. Although it affords me any game I want at any time (I'm still a CAG though  :D/ ) ultimately I don't have the time to sit around every day doing browser searches. It's really not worth my time to spend 15+ hours grinding for it.

 

Well I happened to be self employed but I disagree with you about the 10-15 mins it takes and you can do those searches later in the evening when you get home. I did my searches this morning before 7am and it took me less than 5 mins. Oh well, free is free and a CAG for life.




#14019710 12-Month Xbox Live Gold Membership (Digital Delivery) for $41.64

Posted by Rodster on 02 July 2018 - 07:13 PM

Why does anyone pay for XBL Gold these days? You guys realize that you can get a full 12 months of XBL Gold for free? All you have to do is signup for Microsoft Rewards and literally invest 5-10 mins each day doing searches in Windows 10 Edge browser and on your Bing mobile app. I already racked up enough points in 2.5 months to pay for a years worth of XBL Gold and Microsoft has a hot deal going on in their Rewards program. You can buy 12 months of XBL Gold for 24,000 points which is discounted from 29,000 pts. That sounds like a lot but you can get 29,000 pts in less than 3 months.

Blame UPS. I'm not sure why almost every package that UPS touches looks like it has been gang banged.

 




#13999108 [DEAD] 20% Off PlayStation Store Coupon via PlayStation live (Quest)

This is a good way to boost digital sales.

 

Thanks OP !




#13976454 Walmart $60 FS - Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and Bonus Ematic Nintend...

Posted by Rodster on 05 April 2018 - 04:41 AM

I have that case and it’s pretty decent. It’s black on top and red on the bottom. The biggest problem though is that it’s not tall enough to house the NS power supply, the screen protector is average but it’s included for free. The case plus the screen protector came with my Walmart Nintendo Switch bundle for free.
