I was really disappointed in Cuphead.

 :dunno

Eh the animation is novel enough to keep me interested.  It has a bit of a challenge which is rare these days.

I'm going to document my year's worth of gamestop rewards stuff here since we aren't posting as much anyway.  Spent Febs' credit towards the ps4 remake of Shadow of Colossus.  I think it ended up being $16.00 new, which is about 5 bucks less than retail.  Next month I might get the Nathan Drake collection or something I missed out on via my loyalty to team xbox.  I don't get to play much of anything anymore, but I'm stockpiling.

So it's month 3 and I'm starting to remember why I hate Gamestop.  I go it, pick a game off the shelf and hand it to the clerk..... after 15 min of searching I get "we don't have that".  So why was it on the shelf?  They don't have my second choice either.  I finally settle on a used copy of SFV arcade edition.... even though they have a whole drawer of them still in the original packaging I get mine home to discover it has a crack in the clamshell.  I would have gotten championship edition, which only costs a little more, but they were out of that too.  The first two times the manager was there and I didn't have any problems.... this time he wasn't there and surprise, surprise I run into trouble.   :angry:

There's a better gamestop in town, but it's behind a brick and mortar paywall of having to pay $3 to park in a parking garage.  My mother works in the area and can park for free, so I might end up sending her on pick up errands in the future. 

Anyway I've saved $15 so far out of the $20 I spent on the service.  I've been happy with two of those purchases anyway.  One more month and I break even.  Got my first copy of game informer as well.... it's ok but my old age betrays me as the text to too small to read without my glasses.

So if you go on steam right now, both the recent reboot of tomb raider and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris are free.  Just thought I would mention it. 

On the SF V front it appears I was doubly screwed.  I couldn't figure out why only 17 characters were unlocked so I did some research.  This is another one of those games where crapcom decided to only put half of the game on a physical disc.  Those extra characters were just download codes... So I really just bought SF V, not SF V arcade or SF V CE.   :badmood:

I liked Temple of Osiris.  Think I spent the full $20 on it and left satisfied.

Watch Dogs and The Stanley Parable are free on Epic Games.

Drawful 2 is free on Steam

GOG has a bunch of free games as well. They are mostly Indie but hey they're free.  Some are actually pretty cool.

Watch Dogs is a good game.  Now it's sequel is a bit stupid plot wise but the first one is good.

I frequently wonder if I should revisit Watchdogs.  Didnít care for it when new.

Well it's Assassin's Creed lite, so if you don't like those games you won't like it.  It's been a few years but if I remember correctly it had one hell of a slow burn, so it didn't get interesting until several missions in.  I'd say it's slightly above average in the Ubi-verse but for free yeah anyone interested should check it out.  AAA title after all.

Office Depot is still shipping commercial grade toilet paper.  We were down to a few rolls of Charmin and I got nervous.  Unfortunately used zapcon money on this.  They cancelled the paper towels and Kleenex though.

Yep, and everyone was laughing at me 24 hours ago and now theyíre wishing they had ordered when I told them about it.

I should see what shipping is to Texas. They limit us a bit here, but we get enough.

Yeah, but youíre foreign.  When Mike or obj buy a bidet you know the world has changed.

Today I got a $3 e-credit for choosing delayed delivery with Amazon.  Not sure if that is a regular thing now but the most I've received before was $1.50.

Also if you use Vudu they offer a $2 credit if you watch one of their "Leaving Soon" movies (with ads).  Today only.  They do this once a month and I usually just start the movie on the TV in the bedroom and then leave the room.  Tonight's movie is Cocktail.

Cocktail is an entertaining movie but it has a horrible message.

Had a deluxe bidet for years. Was laughed at for it as well. Now I get people muttering under their breath when I ask how their TP supply is holding up.  :burgerking:

I only wish a quick squirt of water up my butt was enough to get things clean again.  The nuts around here are buying everything up even though the Governor gets on tv every single damn day and tells the citizens to stop hoarding food and tp.  TP is made in the US people, we aren't going to run out.

Since this is called the Free Crap Thread, I might as well point out some places are offering TP with orders:



BTW, loved Ike's during Zapcon a couple years ago.

Food like that is how I crested 300lbs in Missouri.  Donít eat ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- like that.

Also, that sandwich has more vegetables on it than can be found in the entire state of Arizona.

Taken out of context that ad screams "our food gives you the runs."
