Ratchet and Clank is a better game, and very cheap.  I played through it twice.  I got bored of Knack....

Tearaway Unfolded is also somewhat similar in gameplay and price.

Thanks for the info. I've always thought the Ratchet and Clank games looked pretty cool for the earlier PS systems. Although admittedly I've never actually played any of them. Can you jump right in on this latest installment without having played any of those earlier games?

I'll take a look at the Tearaway Unfolded game as well. That one seems like a pretty "trippy" concept. Definitely unique.

I've never played any of the original Ratchet and Clank games before the PS4 one and you'll be fine.  I understand it's sort of a reboot and expansion of the first one.  It has the best graphics I've ever seen - there are several times you'll think you're watching a Pixar movie.

Fry's keeps putting it on sale for $10.  Amazon and GameStop have had it that cheap before, too.  That and Mad Max have probably been the biggest $10 surprises I've had this generation.

Nice! I will have to keep my eyes peeled for a copy on sale. Thankfully I'm not in a big hurry as I've got some other stuff I am working on at the moment. But it would be nice to have it on hand when I'm ready to break in the new system.  :)

Eh I ended up buying a steam link.  Realizing that getting lightguns to work on individual consoles is going to be a colossal pain in the butt and I really don't want to put a beast of a pc in the living room it seemed to make sense.  The dolphin bar is detected by the steam link, so maybe I'll work on getting that going again. 

Steam link was 15 bucks.... still had a gamestop giftcard, so that knocked it down to 5.  Even if it's a failed product, I think I did pretty good for something that originally retailed for 100 bucks. 

I hooked it up and with some fidgeting you can get emulators and any pc app to run within it.  The only caveat is that it freaks out when security prompts pop up.  So I'll have to launch everything from within a FE or write a little script to press ok for me.

Doesn't work on consoles, but you got my pulse going for a minute.   :lol

Anyway, figure I'll have to blow my remaining $11 on something or another quick while these promos are good.... or hold out until they do a new game for $9.99 again....

Star Wars Battlefront digital down to $5.09 and the season pass is free....  A bunch of expansions are free....

They finally released enough single player content that I'll get a few hours out of it.

I'm gonna snag it with my free Gamestop bucks - $6.33 shipped.... codes CAG16 and FREESHIPPING

I submitted the lower digital price for ps4 to Amazon.  That frequently seems to work.  Then I remembered my GameStop card and went physical.

Went ahead and ordered one of these....

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D0L5BH8/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2L77EE7U53NWQ&psc=1

Getting tired of deleting games off my 750GB internal drive.  I paid about $32 for that a couple years ago, so $60 for 2TB isn't bad.

Yeah that's not bad.  I seriously need to upgrade my hdds.... largest one is 500gb, but I think I'm saving amazon cards for a pro action replay on the Saturn and a set of scart cables.

Disc I got from GameStop was beat to hell and crashes constantly.  It's actually missing chunks on the rim.


Sigh.

I gave up on buying discs at gamestop long ago.  I think half of their stock is crap meth heads got out of their dumpster in the back to sell back to them.

Walked in, got minty replacement, walked out.  2 minutes tops.

I've bought a lot of used PS4 games, that was my first problematic one.

And today they've dropped the price to $9.99.   :timebomb:

I've already e-mailed them asking if I can get a credit for the difference... what the hell...

EDIT: NO MORE CODES.  Good luck to the rest of you.


Coke is giving a $5 Amazon gift card if you redeem 10 codes from any of their products.  Limit 2 per account.

I've got a spreadsheet with ~300 codes on it.


If you have a My Coke Rewards account (10 seconds to set up) and shoot me a PM, I'll send you 20 codes and you send me one of the two cards in return.

Go go go go go.

Mid December or until supplies run out.  Go go go.

I was actually kind of surprised - I checked several recycle bins and came up dry.  People have obviously cut down their soda consumption.  When I was in Vancouver I felt like everyone there only drank coffee or room temperature water.  I finally got my hands on a Diet Coke.....served warm.  Damnedest thing.

I felt like an idiot compiling that spreadsheet after they pulled the plug....  Vindication is mine.

Here's the thing... I just threw out three buckets of caps after the rewards program ended.  I didn't think I'd ever need them again.  So I'd probably had 200 bucks worth of them as well. 

My Doctor suggested cutting out all pop just to see if it'd help my headaches and hypertension and to my surprise, after a few months of only water, it did!  Not only that, but my metabolism stabilized and I've been slowly but steadily losing weight ever since.  I had to go cold turkey to quit pop, but now I might drink one a week or something if I happen to be eating out... just no more Mountain Dew... it's the devil's drink and after one sip of that sweet, sweet nectar I'd be hooked again.

I think there might be a few stray caps around here somewhere... it'd probably be good for a few bucks.

Looked in couch, in drawers, over at grandma's ect..... I've found around 50 to 60 of these caps lying around and she still drinks the stuff, so I'll get a little out of the promotion anyway.

Finally got around to this... Frames were lifted from the same tool pile that yielded that Fluke Multimeter.

Posters were freebies from the Houston arcade show....

Was even able to reuse one matte.

I couldn't get the 20oz deal to work.... must some limitations or something.  I figured what the hell, so I'm dusting off my ancient email accounts and using every one..... one of these guys is a Hotmail address. ;)  25 dollars in amazon so far and counting.

I think you have to text JOY and HOLIDAY to 2653 and you'll get a custom URL associated with your cell phone.  Those aren't instant redemptions but at $1/cap I can wait a few weeks for a card in the mail.

Several people have asked me that....  :lol  I'd find it more interesting than a few of them I've seen.


It's almost obscene the amount of stuff I've gotten from Coke over the years.  Silver belt buckles, basketball tickets, amusement park tickets, shirts, oven mitts, Yeti cup, dozens of 12 packs of soda, $1,200 of Outback Steakhouse gift cards.... 

I catered a New Year's Party with those and traded the remainder for $500 in Itunes codes.... 

Like it's to the point that I think I might actually be dead even with them on what I've spent vs what I've gotten back in the past few years.
