#14356416 [PS4, Xbone] Yakuza: Like a Dragon $35 Bestbuy.com DEAL BACK again 1/5/21

There's no such thing as too many Yakuza games, but the burnout is real if you play them back-to-back

There's also a school of thought that if you buy digital, you don't need to worry about your disc reader going bad.

I buy some digital and some physical, so I'm kind of set either way.  Not all eggs in one basket sort of deal.

#14310308 Shenmue 3 with steelbook $19.99 Bestbuy.com (back again)

Posted by vicious7171 on 30 July 2020 - 11:06 PM

Is this game basically like Shenmue 2? I bought Shenmue HD a few weeks ago and tried playing Shenmue 2 but it's painful. I'm convinced people forced themselves to like it because it's a niche game or whatever, like hipsters who purposely listen to bad indie music to seem cool.

Did you like Shenmue 1?  I thought 1 was better than 2 and I played them both when they came out.  No reason to insult the fans btw, a simple "Is Shenmue 3 similar to Shenmue 2?  I did not like Shenmue 2" would have been fine.

#14297985 The Yakuza Remastered Collection (PS4) $39.99

Posted by vicious7171 on 14 June 2020 - 05:43 PM

These games are great.  Bump them up your backlog, play Yakuza 0 first.  Excited to get this set myself, I own the originals but want this just for collection's sake.  Gonna wait for $20 or under.

I'm sorry for posting without anything to add to the thread...

...but I can't help but point out how hilarious it is that today I received a message on my app to spend my Gamestop gift cards received over the holiday season, only to come on here and see that Gamestop is having issues with their system accepting gift cards as payment.

It's good to point out that Dropmix cards work just fine when in soft sleeves, such as the Ultra Pro brand card sleeves.  The only drawback is that a large stack on the Dropmix machine can easily slip and slide, which can ruin the scoring of your current game.

Found these playlist packs hiding behind the counter at 5-Below for $2.25 each.  Bonus points for having to stand around for 5 minutes until someone came up to the front to finally help me buy them:

Ouroboros - Rock
Derby - Pop
Mirrors - Hip-Hop
Lucky - Country

I see no reason why Switch consoles would get such deep discounts

Is Gamestop still doing the $5 Trade bonus?  I tried checking the site, and I basically don't see any trade offers, except for a generic trade retro and trading phones. 

I think that promotion ended on the 25th

Wonderful, detailed contribution.

Dude's just joining in saying what he'd like in CEs, just like you did, I don't see why this response is necessary. 

I, too, prefer physical items that aren't easily available online for free to everyone via digital files.

My first CE ever was Growlanser Generations on PS2.  It came with a ring, a watch, a necklace, and more, all for $80.  

I don't expect that much nowadays, but I'd prefer any single one of those items to an art book or OST.
