Hustled some surveys, picked up Knack and QUBE Directors Cut.

The backlog grows.  Metal Gear is flat out the weirdest game I've ever played.

So do you have like an excel spreadsheet for your backlog? Or is this something you keep mental tabs on?

I finally gave in and made a spreadsheet with the ~250 PS4 games that were on sale.  I then thumbed through a bunch of gameplay videos, eliminating instantly anything that looked retro-indie or weeabo crap.  (This was probably 200 of them, to be honest)

This spreadsheet was then itemized into "own", "maybe", and "buy." 

Ordinarily, I just have a running list in my head and instantly buy when it hits $10 or less.  Should be quite the flood this holiday season.

I can never pull the trigger on heavily discounted games.  I guess in my head if they get too cheap there is probably a reason.  They've been begging xb1 users to buy MGSV... so much so that one offer was buy the game for 30 and get a free gamepad... which is really buy the gamepad for 10 dollars off and get this cruddy game.

Previous generations, yes.  This generation, no.  Games are $35 within a month, $25 after 2.

Ok there's the problem.  I don't consider that heavily discounted.  If you know where to look it's been that way since the start of the 360/ps3 generation..... except for Nintendo games of course.

That is definitely discounted relative to prior generations.  And the drop is much, much faster than it used to be.  Strangely enough digital delivery drops slower than physical.  Weren't we always told it would be the other way around?

I will. It's in my library, just waiting to get the hard drive. She thinks it will be cheaper on prime day on Amazon so we'll see.
Ps4 now supports 4tb external hard drives, and the one I'm looking at fits the ps4 in case I decide to do an internal swap.

I paid like $10-15 for it months ago.  Well worth that.

I stuck a 750GB internal in mine, so long as you're willing to delete games you will never, ever play again, it's been sufficient.  Beware crap like Assassin's Creed - 50GB down the tubes.  Beat and delete.  I've got a couple redundant backups of P.T., just in case.   ;D

So... not free.. but decent. 

Go to Google Express, put in your address, search for PS4 and sort low to high.  You might have a bunch of $10 games from Fry's pop up...

Then buy this:

https://www.groupon.com/deals/google-express-nat-42

Pretty decent way to get 4 games for ~$5 each if you don't already own them.

Yeah, if you have Playstation Plus.... Sony nailed me for a year on that and it was a complete waste of money.  I think I played Diablo 3 one time for all of 20 minutes with someone on this forum. 

Anyway, I'll console myself that I spent a survey dollar.   :lol

And yet if it weren't for American consumerism, China would still be a country full of a billion peasant farmers and no industry.  PBJ can thank America because it is directly responsible for the ability to buy a bunch of cheap crap we will never need so we can be happy for another week.   :cheers:

True - even the stuff you specifically order from a U.S. supplier is just stuff they ordered from China and doubled the price on - plus adding in the USPS postage which costs more to send across the street than it does to have it shipped from CHINA.

Amazon has price matched Sony on a digital game sale... Picked up Murdered Soul Suspect for $5 in survey bucks. 

Stole it a few years ago on 360 and didn't play it much.  Trying to level this back up to 1 game a week...

$5 Amazon gift card for scanning a Coke fountain. 

Murdered Soul Suspect has turned out to be a much better game than I remembered.  The combat is absolutely terrible, but thankfully very limited.  This one and Sleeping Dogs are definitely tops on the, "Hm, should have given this more of a chance" list for me lately.

I actually enjoyed Sleeping Dogs a lot more than I thought I would. You dont have a WiiU you wanna get rid of do ya? I kinda wanna play through  Zelda again without sitting in front of my PC.

Hustled some surveys, picked up Knack and QUBE Directors Cut

Have you played thru Knack yet? Just picked up a PS4 and thought about getting this one for it. Looks like a pretty unique concept for a game. They already have a sequel for it which usually means the first one must've done pretty decent I think.
