Me: Finally saves enough for a down payment on a house and gets a new job that pays well enough to afford mortgage. Housing Market: Shoots up 20%


I don’t get the hype surrounding the Playdate. It only has like 3 games and looks beyond tiny and uncomfortable to hold. Is there anything else it can do? Can it be modded or something? Not bashing on it, I just am confused about the hype.


Since the Steamdeck was announced almost a week ago, can we start getting some rumors for the Steamdeck Pro?


I am sure this is a pretty popular opinion but Nintendo and Sony should either re-release their old hardware (very unlikely) or ensure a majority of their old titles are able to be purchased on current gen hardware (unlikely).


Update on my last Post: The guy has accepted my return but now I’m paranoid he’ll say he never received it if I ship it back. Has anyone ever had something like that happen on eBay and what happened?


Really irritated. Bid and Won a copy of Silent Hill 2 (black label, non-greatest hits version) on eBay. Received it and the case is black label but the disc is greatest hits. No mention of the disc being greatest hits and the only photo was the back.


Thanks to Nocturne, I wanted to buy a PS2 again to play some older games (traded in mine for backwards compatible PS3, which has since died) so I went out to a Swap Meet and found one. What games are essential? Mostly interested in JRPG and horror.


With how quickly all special editions of games seem to be selling out and the fact that Atlus has set a specific pre-order date for SMT V, I am very worried there will be a nice physical version (like SMT4) and it will be difficult to get.


Good news. Was able to get my 150 mile move done in one trip. Bad news. Small TVs broke in the move and now I am concerned about the nice tv (which I can’t check because it is in storage).


I feel like getting the Switch version of Nocturne makes more sense but for some reason I want the PS4 version.


A couple days ago, I had an intense craving out of nowhere for a Custom Robo 2. I wouldn't even rank Custom Robo as one of my favorite games, but now I need this game that doesn't exist.


Anybody on here ever CGC any comics? I have a Daredevil #1, Ultimate Fallout #4 (Miles Morales 1st App), and Amazing Spider-man #50, that I am thinking about selling and wondering if it would be worth it to send them in.


Got a new job which is a big step up role-wise, pays about 10% more and will allow me to relocate to a cheaper area. Sucks that I just signed a year's lease that took effect 5 days ago and it will cost about $3000 to break it.


As someone who owns a PS5, and only used his Xbox One to play Halo 5 and Master Chief Collection, I kinda want a Series X. Given my collection of 360 games and knowing Microsoft's next console will support them (and next-gen games) is very enticing.


If you make a negative wish on a Monkey's Paw, does that mean something good will happen?


Just finished building my MG Zeta Gundam 2.0. Kind of disappointed. Debating which Gunpla to build next. I have an MG RX-93 Ver. Ka, MG Full-Armor Gundam Ver. Ka, and an HG Atlas Gundam. Built plenty of MGs but I am kind of intimidated by the Ver. Kas.


Glad to hear everyone is enjoying the new Monster Hunter!


If anybody is even slightly interested in anime, I highly recommend you watch Thunderbolt Fantasy. It can be found on Crunchyroll, it is absolutely fantastic and season 3 starts next week. Oh also the whole show is made with puppets.


The Snyder Cut was way more similar to the theatrical cut than I thought it would be. If a WB exec gave me the Snyder Cut and told me to make it less than 2 hours, I would probably end up with something close to the theatrical cut.


In August 2018, I bought Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 and 2.8 to try to beat all the games before 3 came out in January 2019. It only took me 2 years longer than intended but as of last night, I completed them all. But, I don't know if I want to play 3 anymore.


I ended up buying Ys IX from Amazon Warehouse Deals in Used-Like New condition. I got it today and the game came in this weird plastic wrap with a bar code, but when I opened that, I found the game was completely sealed in factory wrap. Nice surprise.


Anybody know how good NISA is about restocking their games? I was hoping to pick up Ys IX on PS4, but Gamestop, Best Buy, Target and Wal-mart are sold out, and Amazon has it for above MSRP.


Saw LRG announced a Collector's Edition of No More Heroes 1 and 2 which look amazing. However it is very hard to justify spending $140 plus shipping/tax for games I can buy digitally for $40 (especially since NMH3 box won't match the CE's).


Due to the Pokemon announcements, I am on a bit of a Pokemon kick. May go through and try to complete the living dex on Sword. I need 105 more.


I am glad we are finally getting a video game based on the Oldboy/Daredevil Hallway Fight Scene.


Are we allowed to change our bets that we will see a Sony Japan Studio developed Silent Hill at today’s State of Play?


Stargirl is one of the best live-action DC shows, second only to Watchmen. It moving to the CW could completely kill this series. Also I think I can say without hesitation that Geoff Johns is the best superhero creator currently working.


Picked up Avengers used from Gamefly for $15 and spent the weekend playing it. Maybe it is because I have been on a huge Marvel kick but honestly the game is great so far. It is not perfect and not as great as PS4 Spider-Man but it's really fun.


Posting my backlog here so I am more committed to getting some games off of it before I pick anything else up. I at least need beat 13 Sentinels and TMS before I pick up anything else.


I signed up for Marvel Unlimited earlier this week and have been tearing through all of their most recent series. As someone who prefers DC, I definitely think Marvel's output has been blowing them out of the water. Series I have read in the comments.
