It's frustrating... but I simply won't buy and will wait.

Same. Doesn't help that you can really only get it online and these stores don't have protections from bots. They don't care anyways as long as they sell.

Are they copying Nintendo's strategy of lowering supply to increase demand?

Doubt it since scalpers are already doing that for them. Supply chain is low and getting materials is becoming difficult for every industry that needs silicon chips.

@CreepinDeth - how did you come up with what's in your spoiler tag?  I just caught up on all the episodes as of Friday.

minor comic spoilers...

Spoiler: ShowHide
Agatha has a connection with FF and Wanda in the comics. Keeping the comic info low since I don't want to completely spoil everything in the case it doesn't happens. Although, if it does happen, I expect it to be not in your face with the way the story is unfolding. It's completely Wanda's story and it should stay that way.

Just one more episode left!!

I started watching again from the beginning and the first two episodes hit differently this time around now that things are more fleshed out.

Although, now I don't think it's introducing what I thought it was going to. Now it looks like it could be...

Spoiler: ShowHide
The Fantastic Four

I have jumped to so many different conclusions with every episode. My perspective has been all over the map. The last episode was like, "boom." You're right it is so much fun to watch.

These past two episodes really made me reconsider what I thought was going to happen. The writers of this series is doing a magnificent job, in my opinion.

This last episode just dropped a giant hint as to what will be the catalyst for the next set of phases, like the infinity stones prior.

All of the subtle hints throughout every episode makes this a fun watch.

@CreepinDeth --- Tomb Raider is defiantly a series I want to give another look to. I've played them all but never finished one...

They're pretty good. Can drag a bit if you're trying to get 100% on every level but it's a good romp and the first two are super cheap nowadays if you wait for a sale.

Went through Tomb Raider remake and just finished Rise of the Tomb Raider, next up is Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

After that, I'm starting a Resident Evil run so that when I'm done, RE 8 should be out.

The Falcon and Winter Soldier show airs a little after this, so there will be plenty of content on Disney+. Then there's the Loki show, which I think is at the end of this year.

Sony cannot price themselves out of the market. I think with the PS5, hopefully, they might realize this. There is a limit gamers will spend before you become a niche market with your product.

I don't think price is a problem to them considering many are paying tons of money to scalpers just to have the console. They keep selling out because of that and to Sony, a sale is a sale.

Been watching it and it's superb. It started out slow but has gotten much better. Can't wait to see how it all connects to the next phase.

Which is rumored to have...

Spoiler: ShowHide
The X-Men. Although, with Evan Peters showing up, it kind of makes it obvious.

I'm really happy to have some proper MCU content back.

I doubt it will be. It might be Sony's last physical media console but with internet still being crap around the country, I don't see the cloud being their main method of distribution.

Received an Xbox One S and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I really like the fact that a ton of 360 games are backwards compatible. It's not the newest console but the fact that I can play Red Dead Redemption again is awesome. Also, got the Master Chief collection and Halo 5 with it.

Might sign up for the Ultimate Game Pass. It's very tempting.

Mandalorian is definitely worth checking out. It's just a fun show. Even though Baby Yoda is all over the place outside of the show, in the actual show he doesn't have a ton of screen time.

Jon Favreau not only kick-started the Marvel Universe but has now revived the Star Wars universe.

@CreepinDeth on the PS4 there is an option to backup.  You need to have the right sized Hard Drive to do it... but I've used it to move to newer / larger hard drives.  Is that what you are referring to?

Not necessarily. That's more for transferring purposes. You can't backup and reinstall games individually. You're forced to restore everything with this type of backup. Not really ideal.

I really hope the Switch Lites don't have the joycon drift. 

They do.

The only thing that keeps me from going digital on console is the lack of backup options for the games. Steam and GOG on PC have great backup options, so I know that I can take my games with me into my future builds.

If you can backup from PS3/Xbox 360 and up, please let me know.

As for GameStop, when your bread and butter is used games, you're bound to have a bad time eventually. Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart can all survive because they're not just game stores.

Times always change and so do media formats. You can't stop progress. Not sure what GameStop can do at this point. They pigeon-holed themselves.

Started watching Lovecraft Country on HBO. Only 1 episode in but it's great so far.

I'm also on the last season of Korra. Next up is a Hulu original called Pen15. It is absolutely hysterical. It's about these two girls going through middle school/high school. If you've gone to school in the late '90's/early 2000's, this show will probably trigger some nostalgia. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a comedy.

Yeah, the rom leaked about a week before release. It has already been datamined and nothing came up for Galaxy 2.

The WII U taught everyone in the video gaming community what poor branding does, I don't know why Microsoft continued with the pitiful nomenclature.

Yeah, they done goofed. The only reason I can think of for the similar naming scheme is because all Xbox One games will work on the newer systems. It might've been a way to get people comfortable with their purchase.

hm... I wonder if it was something were the debit transactions do not flag like credit transactions would...

It's possible, and if that's the case, that bank sucks. And yeah, if I had that type of money in cash, I would at the very least keep it in a savings account. Even one with a low interest rate would still get you something at that amount.

Yeah... it does suck this is happening... especially on a wide level.  But I get torn from time-to-time on these practices. 

Auction Torpedoing !

I hear you but in this case, people who can afford to buy an RTX 3080 just to auction off don't seem to be hurting for cash.

If it was a business that they were torpedoing, then I might feel differently. Scalpers rarely get my sympathy.

How are they overbidding?  Wouldn't they be responsible for the amount they overbid?

They're either making multiple, disposable accounts or sacrificing their own. If you don't pay you just get banned from Ebay.

This whole release has been a mess. Probably won't get one this year.

It's nice to hear people are trolling the scalpers by overbidding on their listings and throwing up bogus listings.

Picked mine up and played Mario 64 first. Not bad. It can look rough here and there since they didn't really improve any textures.

Controls feel okay but need to get used to them. Feels weird to have rumble for Mario 64.

Also, it looks like Amazon has restocked. You can get a copy at the moment of this post.

I remember the first time I ran Crysis about 9 years ago. I had a dual core AMD CPU with a Radeon 6850 that had 1GB of VRAM. Thought to myself "this should run fine now, it's a 4 year old game."


That was the loudest I ever heard any of my PCs get, ever. Ran at an abysmal 10FPS on the lowest settings and barely 720p.

I want to try out the remaster but it's an EGS exclusive and I'm not into that for a lot of reasons, both as a consumer and personal. So I'll like to hear one of you guys play it when it releases and report back.

Mine still says preparing. Crossing fingers it goes through. There needs to be a crossing fingers emoji.  :)

Also, here is the Digital Foundry video detailing all of the improvements.

RTX 3090 all the way!

And I'll probably grab a PS5 eventually for Horizon Forbidden West.

Hah! I was about to say the same, except RTX 3080 for me and PS5 for Spider-Man.

Best Buy is preparing my copy for pickup on Friday. Nice!  ;D

I've also been hearing that some retailers like Gamestop are canceling pre-orders because the physical copies are a lot more limited than anticipated. Hope all of you who pre-ordered get yours.

Looks decent. Can you play it in portrait mode?
