I was hoping to see something with a PS4 Pro bundle. Oh well

#14078042 The Gamestop Thread

I see this argument against getting the Pro all the time on here, and I wonder why no one knows about supersampling, which is a big deal for playing the PS4 Pro on an HD tv. There are also the benefits to higher/consistent frame rates on certain games. Not having a 4K tv is not a deal breaker by any means.


Thanks for that I heard it and the slim run more efficiently than the fat.

It's questionable to keep visiting the site after you've held a lowball where the prices didn't reach your expectations. It'd be nice if he sent us all invoices, or made a post addressing the situation if something came up irl. 11 days without a post makes me think it's not happening, which is fine, but pretending it didn't happen won't save him from negative feedback or the red name.

Let's get a mod involved... I'll reach out to one.

#14061879 Looking To Sell My Entire Collection, Need Advice

Posted by kube00 on 04 October 2018 - 04:18 PM

Here is a good place. I've also seen people sell collections on big retro gaming Facebook groups and on eBay.

A resource like price charting or gamevaluenow can help with the value of certain items.

Lots of pics and a wiling to make a deal if someone buys a lot will get you pretty far.

That being said, any Dreamcast, N64, or Saturn stuff? How about complete in box Genesis or SNES games?

#14061877 Best coffee?

Posted by kube00 on 04 October 2018 - 04:14 PM

Home roaster here. Prepare for immense snobbery.

I love buying green beans from The Coffee Project or Sweet Maria's, then roasting my own. It's actually shockingly easy, and you've always got really fresh, great coffee. It also costs a fraction of the price.

Any of the grocery store brands are going to be terrible, and if you're after just having a good cup, try local spots that aren't chains. If you're not a hardcore coffee person, maybe start with a latte to get a feel for the quality and if it gets you off, or if you're braver, order an espresso or black coffee. It'll give you the truest flavor of the coffee itself. Lots of coffee shops you'll find roast their own, so if you warm up to one place, see if they sell, or ask where they get their coffee roasted. Most places are pretty cool about sharing the info.

If you're like my wife, and you dump a bunch of flavored creamer in your coffee, other than defending yourself from the risk of domestic violence, you should just buy any old brand from Costco, Starbucks, Peet's, or whatever.

I'm in Oregon, which benefits from a lot of the Seattle coffee scene spillover, and we have some great shops in our area. Stumptown is well regarded, Spella, Water Avenue are all very local, but well thought of.

I'll do drip coffee into a metal carafe (those hot plates with the glass pot are tragic. Avoid them if you want to enjoy coffee at all), but my preferred way of brewing is french press.

If you want to go ever further down the path of snobbery, look into a burr grinder instead of a blade. More control over the grounds. If you're buying pre-ground coffee...again...buy from some chain until you're ready to upgrade in cost and taste.

Whew...that was a lot. Now I'll transform back into a normal person, who isn't that much of an arrogant twat....unless we start talking about cigars.

Fellow PNWer I agree that Stumptown has some pretty good coffee.

#13991638 Sticky: Fred Meyer's coupons valid upon Xbox & Playstation GC's

Posted by kube00 on 09 May 2018 - 03:47 AM

Great stuff.

Just bought $150 of PSN credit for $120 at my Kennewick Fred Meyer before the coupon ends.


As you mentioned previously, its important to look for the "For Display Only" cards, which means PlayStation and Xbox only, it seems.  (seriously, c'mon, Steam and Nintendo.)


Normally I'm an Xbox man, but I have lots of Uncle Phil credit already.


Happy days are here again!  Can't wait for stackable deals!

Woah another SE WA CAG! I thought we were few and far in between. Might have to PM ya. Sadly I forgot to check this thread recently for this deal

#13988832 2018 Yard Sale / Flea Market Finds

Posted by kube00 on 02 May 2018 - 03:01 AM

Finally had a day that was good for yard saling in Baltimore! I had a few good finds but didn't run into any competition, which was great. I think my main competitor in the city may have moved, though I haven't been able to confirm it for sure yet.


These all came from different houses at various community sales. DVD's plus Sonic were $6, the PS4 games were $5 apiece, and Lumines and Morrowind were $2 apiece. It's my first time seeing non-sports PS4 games in the wild.



This lot was sitting in a box marked $10 right along the side walk, which if nothing else was a good sign no other game buyers were around. It's nice to add Mario Super Sluggers to my collection.



And the last find comes courtesy of a friend who posted about a sale and sent me a pic when I asked about video games. Everything here was $25, and I can't even feel bad because they were just cleaning out an ex's old stuff and wanted to be rid of it.


Willing to part with some of those GC games...I need a few
