  • @Law212 Yeah I spotted it earlier and subbed. I always sub when I see it offered for a dollar, have done so 3-4 times in the past year.
    in SALES! Comment by Sintacs November 19
  • @wikkiwild1 said: It's a Visa Debit card. I received a confirmation as to what website charged my card. It is Audible. I called them and they are looking into it (I doubt it though). I'll call my bank again tomorrow and dispute it. I've also r…
  • You pretty much need to be getting boxes for any SP content though, all the multiverse stuff will typically need to you have characters of a certain level, or have some decent gear equipped to be able to compete. If you plan to do any SP stuff outsi…
  • @EchoGolfSierra said: worse I have witnessed was they cancelled and reissued a card I've had this happen to mine twice. The first time I have no idea how it was obtained, but it was during the time where there was steady big hacks on big com…
  • @Law212 said: I just want unlockable skins I'd buy the deluxe or whatever version I bought that came in the steelbook again if they rereleased it and completely removed the gear system replacing it with 1-3 alternate skins for characters (on…
  • This seems relevant here.
  • Got a neat fiber optic Christmas tree at Canadian Tire today for a pretty good price and one of those projection-type bulbs, been Christmasing up my chill room.
  • @Law212 I saw Valerian when it was in theaters and loved it, don't remember if I saw it in 3D or not though.
  • @Law212 said: game of thrones is a chore to watch. Its not as good as people say. There are many many better shows, and walking dead is over rated too. While I do enjoy Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead was one I was never able to get into. …
  • @Doos said: Anyone else watching Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency? Just finished it on Netflix tonight with the GF, we both absolutely loved it. It's probably my top Netflix recommendation to anybody at the moment. @MSQGanner said…
  • @Doos I'd generally consider a "AAA" game as a game that was made by a well known (whether or not their reputation is good) or leading developer with a top tier budget. To me, "AAA" gaming isn't a quality thing, its a money and recognition thing. Pl…
  • @EchoGolfSierra said: Paying for items just gives you the better items...it doesnt give you the skills you need to become better. Thing is in a game like Diablo all you need are those better items, it's a numbers game, and if yours are bigge…
  • @EchoGolfSierra said: A one point you could even sell your loot to other players....which I think was pure genious It was pretty much the definition of pay to win though. Sure, there was no PVP in the game, and still isn't AFAIK, but you cou…
  • So I was in EB this week to get the GF a copy of Pokémon Y and all they had was a gutted copy. The box case they went and got for it was in terrible shape, all scratched and scraped up, and very dirty. They still wanted the "new" price for it. As a …
  • I had Ass Creed pre-ordered but cancelled it earlier this week, money is kinda tight currently so I needed it for something else. The Egyptian thing is what makes me want to play it, when I do get around to picking it up, it'll be my second Ass Cree…
  • @Law212 said: I also wanted to do reviews for older games. not retro, but older. Like Hunter the demons forge, or Heavy Metal FAKK 2 , or No one lives forever. Not based on the game then but wether its stull fun to play now. I was thinking a…
  • @Juxtapose said: @Sintacs How does GoG allow you to make back ups? You mean an online or offline back up? Their games are all DRM-free. You can download the game you buy, and depending on the size, it will typically be either a single .exe …
  • @Doos said: It's Skynet or Mad Max. Pick your poison! I'd like to think we're headed more towards a Judge Dredd world personally. Though it's pretty much Mad Max, but with a few gigantic futuristic cities (Mega-City One for example) scattere…
  • There's absolutely no reason to go physical on PC outside of collector's editions these days. You'll often need to install Steam or another client when installing any modern physical games, if you even get a disc in your box. There's a lot of times …
  • Forgot to mention there's even some special moves for each character that are locked away behind the RNG (not gear dependant), and some that are dependant on having specific pieces of gear equipped IIRC.
  • @Juxtapose said: @Sintacs Question regarding Injustice 2: The cosmetic items you grind for, they are just that, cosmetic, correct? No gameplay or character changes with them? Or is there, but outside of competitive play? The only purely c…
  • I'd say 16GB is pretty much the standard now, especially now that a low of modern games are requiring you have 8GB. Going from 8-16GB, you'd definitely notice a difference, going 16-32GB, you'd likely notice nothing as 32GB is still kind of overkill…
  • @Law212 said: I think other than me, youre the only one who did watch the videos. But i love that people try to comment without seeing themm as they are really the meat of this thread. I watched after posting, and while I generally really do…
  • @TimothyWedel I've been playing Fortnite, but I haven't touched the Battle Royale side of it yet.
  • He said it copied Overwatch, then later said it copied a free to play game. I really hope he criticized Overwatch for it as that was a $40 game, $60 on consoles. Loot boxes have absolutely no place in paid games though. I'll tolerate em in F2P games…
  • @Juxtapose said: That was a strong part of the motivation behind things like DLC unlocked via a code in the box; like the Catwoman stuff in Batman: Arkham City, it was a way for publishers to encourage consumers to buy new. Not only that, bu…
  • When it comes to "new" for something I'm buying, it's not quite the definition "new". What I'm after is factory sealed, and that tend to be labelled as "new" at places like EB and Gamestop, it's not my terminology and slight misuse of the word "new"…
  • @Law212 said: Keys for the Scorn demo are being sent out now for backers! Cant wait to get mine. Makes me wish my GPU wasn't dead. I ended up dropping my backing level down (so I won't be getting the demo anyway) since money is tight, didn't…
  • @Law212 said: To me when it comes to things like games and blu rays, having the shrink wrap opened means its now used. Especially EB games with the games they open, they handle the disk and put it in a paper sleeve until sold. I've know…
  • My issue with them is generally more with their policies and practices with used game sales, especially when they try to pass off gutted games as new when no other self respecting retailer would sell that as anything more than used. I once went into…
