You should see a doctor immediately.

For quite possibly the best game ever, it's worth it. Plus it looks and feels like a PS4 game.

 

Not owning TLoU is an absolute crime, even if it was originally released on PS3. Game looks stunning and was the best story I have ever experienced in a game.

Some of us owned it on the PS3, beat it & ditched it while it still had a high value. No matter how good it was, I'm not paying $30 for a port of a PS3 game I already beat (and it wasn't THAT good ;) ).

That unboxing is for the EU version of the CE. I don't think the NA version comes with the steelbook unless they just added it recently.

I don't know why people link to IGN's crap videos. This one isn't leagues better being Gamespot, but at least it's on YouTube & the American version of the set. Anyway, Steelbook confirmed (even tho they barely show it....).

I'm sitting the month out if Rorona wins. Not to be contrary, but this is to shrink backlogs not grow them, and I don't own it. :-P

LOL Kinda funny how so many people were 100% sure this wasn't going to be available post-launch. 

 

It's always a gamble. I've thought some would be scarce that weren't, and I've thought some would be easy to get that weren't. But I'll say this: in the long run, I've *always* been more upset over the ones I passed on thinking they'd be easy to pick up later on that then turned out to be rare. 

 

As for the U4 sets, that video cemented me on the Special Edition. I love the steelbook, but that statue isn't worth another $40 to me.

Stopped in my local GS last night and spotted a Bravely Second CE behind the counter. Asked about it & they said someone canceled it. Came home, thought about it, found a couple of trades & called them first thing this morning - good friend of mine was working & he said he'd hold it for me. So now I own the CE of the second game even tho I didn't really enjoy the first that much. :-P 

 

As for the vocaloid business, there's always been one thing that's bugged me. Has everyone forgotten Macross Plus? Are the Japanese *trying* to kill us all?

I'll throw out another vote for SAO Hollow Fragment. I imported the Asian Vita release but haven't touched it yet - we'd probably have some interesting discussion comparing versions on that one.

The first part of your post is all opinion, which again pro or con. Is fine to have.

The second part I find amusing because I think that people whining about others having an opinion on censorship and telling them to stop is actually more detrimental. Because it's outright telling people to shut up, accept it and move on. No discussion, No opinion, No thought. Is not a discourse... 

If that's the case, then don't make it about censorship. Tell us that you don't want to hear different opinions that aren't align with your own in these forums. But if we get to that point then it's just "people on the internet being people on the internet" now isn't it?

That's the thing tho, there IS no discourse anyway it's just people repeatedly shouting about how they hate censorship and aren't going to buy whatever the latest game is that has it. We get it. 

 

Y'know, I hate games that release digital only, but I don't post about every. single. one. that announces that's what they're doing. It's pointless. Sure, I'd love to think that I'm so important that the dev would read my post and be like "argyle wants a physical release!?! We need to get on that ASAP!!!" But the best I can do is not buy the game, or at least not buy it until there's a steep sale & move on. 

 

I see it as roughly the same thing, in that publishers are not always going to do what we want. It sucks. Get over it. ;)

Anyone else remember the days that we were just happy a game was getting localized, and didn't care how much of a female character's ass we could see?  Man, those were the days...




#13284969 Battleborn + Season Pass + $10 Reward Card for $63 from Best Buy (GCU)

Posted by argyle on 10 April 2016 - 11:28 AM

I'd be interested in this game if it werent for the fact Overwatch hits Beta right around the same time then releases barely a few weeks later.

 

I feel like its gonna get absolutely blown out by it. No matter how fun it may be, I don't feel like paying near full retail to end up with another Evolve or something on my hands. (Community dies out fast and the only thing left is hardcore players)

Overwatch is a non-starter for me simply because it has no single player.

Definitely up for UMDs here. The GS closest to my work still has a ton of them, but they tossed almost all of the cases.  :headache:

 

Wish NIS would reprint some, I'd love to get hold of a complete ZHP Unlosing Ranger for a reasonable price.

Some CE's are on sale at Gamestop, lots of console bundles too

 

Tales of Zestria: $70 - http://www.gamestop....-edition/123375

 

Dragon Quest Heroes: $54 - http://www.gamestop....-edition/125319

 

Just Cause 3: $62 - http://www.gamestop....-edition/123475

Just a heads up, that JC3 CE is crap. The grappling hook thingy is very cheaply made and barely stays on the display stand. I got it when it was about $50 somewhere recently (Best Buy?) and it was worth that only because of the game. I feel sorry for anyone that paid the original retail price for the thing.

Picked up Benny and Unikitty earlier today with no problem. Emmet was sold out.

Emmet was sold out at my store too. I also picked up Benny & Unikitty along w/ the 3 Chima packs they had (in 2 transactions). The girl was amazed when the 4 I bought on my first transaction dropped from $6x to $16.xx. :-P
