Can't you order a tv online? Should be able to find equivalent deals with cheap shipping

All fair points - but then you have "stretch goals" like Spanish translation. Was there really any doubt on that for a game like this?
3  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shenmue 3 (kickstarter) on: June 17, 2015, 01:05:13 AM
Sweet. Of course weren't the first a couple of he most expensive games ever at the time? Not sure what 2 mill gets you or why they really need it.

That's annoying.

I love Valkyria Chronicles. Played it on PS3 (where it was a port from PS2 I think)
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Post Your Steam Summer Sale Loot Here! on: June 12, 2015, 11:32:09 PM
Off to an expensive start...

Grey Goo - $19.99
Honey Pop - $4.99
Tales From the Borderlands - $12.49
Homeworld Collection - $13.99
Life is Strange - $14.99

I grabbed Tales from the Borderlands and Homeworld: Remastered already

Hmm, want to support, but also tired of kickstarting games that come out two years later...

I feel bad that my Geralt is such a player, but he can't help himself  crybaby It's a disease. Wondering how that will all resolve itself later...
10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: May 28, 2015, 11:03:03 PM
Nice (metal gear). Overall I feel like PS+ isn't as useful on PS4 as it was on the PS3 as now they spread the games across 3 systems rather than two.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: May 18, 2015, 01:26:20 AM
Easier for me to claim PC time (wife has own) and deal with baby on the same floor than PS4 downstairs. PC it is.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Ocean 5 Announced! on: April 14, 2015, 11:37:55 PM
Cool. I liked 4, even if I didn't beat the final boss as I refused to go back and grind 5 hours for it.
13  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Ok....I'm ready. Teach me how to invest on: April 14, 2015, 11:36:54 PM
Unfortunately there's no real good short term investments right now. Stocks are fairly high from PE, gold is risky and will get worse if interest rates rise, bonds will be hit by interest rates. Personally for your five year plan I like some good dividend focused funds or preferred ETFs (like PGF) as at least you'll get a bit more out of them if they drop.

Medium-long term, suggest cost averaging into some low fee vanguard or index funds (especially through tax advantaged systems). Meaning contribute on a regular basis rather than trying to time the market with big contributions.

As others said, trying to time individual stocks can feel good when it's up, but they can fall a lot faster than they rise unless you're lucky, so need to have patience or it can drive you mad. Something like Apple is at least unlikely to drop huge percent though.
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: March 25, 2015, 01:36:31 AM
Witcher 2 was great. Always meant to combe back and play a second time, but haven't and now I need to finish DA Inquisition and take a break before Witcher 3. Someday...
15  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: FS - 3DS XL (price drop) on: March 20, 2015, 01:12:48 PM
Bump for $15 price drop
16  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Sold on: March 17, 2015, 11:36:09 PM
Have a 3DS XL (New Super Mario Bros edition, but without the game due to data transfer) - Asking $110 shipped (full packaging and charger included)

Also available - Bravely Default (would trade for Fire Emblem, Majora's Mask, Persona Q, Fantasy Life, Shin Megumi Tensei 4, Zelda Ocarina of Time, Monster Hunter 4) - or $20 - or $15 with the 3DS

16GB SD Card - $10 or $5 with the 3DS
17  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: NEW 3DS and XL on: March 17, 2015, 10:44:10 PM
OK, that's what I thought. So I'll sell noting that it no longer includes the new super Mario bros.

Thanks.
18  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: NEW 3DS and XL on: March 14, 2015, 09:43:43 PM
So due to you all I gave in and got a "new". I did wireless transfer and now want to resell the old 3ds xl. Question... it was the new super Mario bros version - does that mean super Mario is no longer on the old device? Want to make sure I market accurately for selling and don't want to go in and make a profile and all in it.
19  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Con Man - Alan Tudyk and Nathan Filiion on: March 14, 2015, 01:43:03 AM
Love this - but hate a couple elements of it. First, 3+ 10 minute episodes (number depending on funding)? Not a lot given the funds.

Second, the $25 tier only gets you access 90 days past the public release? Wtf?
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Talos Principle on: March 05, 2015, 12:35:29 AM
FYI - on steam sale 33% off. Downloading now...

Blacklight Retribution is good if you enjoy multiplayer games at all, and it's free!

Haven't played in a while, but I played a ton of Blacklight: Retribution for a while. Very good (and fair) for a F2P once you play a bit and unlock items.
22  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [3DS] Animal Crossing New Leaf on: February 08, 2015, 07:39:34 PM
Well, ordering this now with a best buy b2g1 used sale.. Any reason to dig through for peeps to friend or not? Any advice starting off?
23  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: LF: Club Nintendo codes on: February 08, 2015, 05:32:26 PM
Hah, I'd take some too! FYI, looks like it's ending at end of March before they set up something new. So spend your points!

I've enjoyed the recent CRPGs (haven't played Dragon Age yet), but the problem with them mostly being kickstarter babies is none of them quite feel like a full game. Not quite enough time/length/detail to make them feel epic like the old bioware and interplay days.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 01/02/15 on: January 04, 2015, 02:20:21 PM
The Stanley Parable - PC
Ace Attorney - 3DS
Heroes of the Storm - PC
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Games Finished 2015 Edition on: January 04, 2015, 02:18:49 PM
Finshed in 2015:

I thought The Interview was crude and at times juvenile, but overall pretty funny and worth seeing
30  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Soundbar question for tv on: December 26, 2014, 01:59:15 PM
Dumb question, but just got my first soundbar. Is there any reason I would need to plug the optical cables directly from bluray or cable box rather than through the tv?
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Year later - PS4 or Xbox One on: December 24, 2014, 12:27:11 PM
Given the great sales including games for each, thoughts at this point? Is the graphical prowess of the PS4 that much better? Are the games for Xbox better? Where does GT stand?

Is this new trilogy download only?

Yeah, I think so (and new meaning remake of first 3 games)
33  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: What to get for 3DS on: December 14, 2014, 02:53:37 PM
Pretty far into the 2nd case of Ace now and enjoying it. Funnier than I expected.
34  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: What to get for 3DS on: December 07, 2014, 12:40:10 PM
Question - why are 3DS games so expensive? They don't seem to price drop like normal games :-P
35  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: What to get for 3DS on: December 04, 2014, 01:26:25 AM
Does it really matter which you play? Preferred order?

Quote from: TiLT on December 03, 2014, 11:25:11 AM

I'll have to repeat myself: Ace Attorney!

People always look at reviews and screenshots of those games and think they're boring, but I haven't heard of a single person who's played them and not loved them.
36  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: What to get for 3DS on: December 03, 2014, 11:19:38 AM
Nope, I haven't!
37  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: What to get for 3DS on: December 02, 2014, 02:14:46 AM
Any good original DS games worth playing on the 3DS?
38  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: What to get for 3DS on: November 28, 2014, 12:50:12 AM

Did the same thing today so very interested in this thread. Excited about new persona. Coming out... what are the best rpgs?


Quote from: Crawley on November 27, 2014, 08:43:19 PM

So I did a bit of an impulse buy and purchased the 3DS XL from Walmart for $150. Thing is I haven't been keeping up too much with the 3DS so not sure what are the must have games.

I am eyeing the following though:

Paper Mario: Sticker Star
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
Mario and Luigi: Dream Team
Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
Bravely Default
Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

Are there other stand out 3DS games I should consider? How about accessories?
