@Grindspine LOL... yes... it does.

and no... the PlayStation 5 is huge.  It is bigger than the original PlayStation 3.  Check this link:

yeah... it's hitting ever industry right now.   It's hard to believe you still cannot get a PlayStation 5 this far after launch.  I gave up trying to get one.  I simply lost care and I refuse to buy at the scalped price.   If no one bought the scalped prices... It wouldn't happen.  But that drive to have the current system is driving the scalpers.   

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

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

This series has had so many twists in it now... it's pretty crazy. I'm not 100% certain where it is going after that last episode lol.  So... can't wait until the next one comes out.   I'm hoping they have a few seasons of this.  Not sure how long this one will last.

I definitely take value into consideration... I do buy some games in hopes for value appreciation... BUT I play everything I have.   I try to keep everything in immaculate condition... but it doesn't always happen especially when you play and not just collect.

In some ways, I'm becoming less of a collector.  I would be more of a collector, but I sized down in life in generally... so I don't really store as much stuff anymore.  At some point, I may sell off some of my collection.  I don't know if I want to, but at the same time... will prices forever be higher?   OR will the demand always stay as high?  It probably will stay as high unless people just give up collecting all together.

Calling out a few members... What about you @MegaDrive20XX @Grindspine @Strubes @CreepinDeth @trkorecky @AngelBob @Kinikko @JR_McG and @Snatcher_L @Polygon @Jack ?   We haven't heard from you in awhile... what's your take?

I started seeing a lot of this back in the mid 2000s...
 Especially before the financial crash.  Buyers tastes changed... they started wanting just "games to play" and didn't care about the conditions, completeness, collector status. Etc. Around this same time, steam was starting to take off in the way of gaming sales...Etc.  For the 1st time   I started to hear people say they welcomed virtual console games (on the Wii, steam. Etc).  They didn't want the clutter anymore.

I guess I understand that a bit more now. Games don't have manuals or much inside the case anymore.  It sort of defeats the purpose of buying physical copies in some ways.  With digital, You don't have to have the disc or cart in to play the game... you can just switch between the games.  It's convenient though you don't technically own it and cannot sell it if you need to recoup some of your money.

So I guess the writing has been on the wall for a long time.  I watched tons of shops go out of business since 2007.  Most of our local game stores closed by 2012.  No other shops took their place. I think there will always be collectors. But the question is, will there be anything to collect later on?    I do think ... as much as I hate to say it... retro will be dropped more and more.  I don't see anyone playing the Magnavox Oddysee , Atari 2600 and many other systems anymore.  Many Gamers seem to just want to play and not have the clutter... which seems to be the majority these days.

« on: February 16, 2021, 09:51:36 PM »
Yeah.. I ended up shoveling a ton of snow. I'm pretty sure we had 10-12 inches.  The plow truck pushed a lot of it into our driveway as well.  :o. 4' in a few areas. 

Take care if you need to go in tomorrow.   We are supposed to get a bit more snow Thursday I think

@targetrasp I took a look last night...  I ended up spending too much on new Bioshock collection Switch, Doom (now Hard to find Switch game) used, and Spongebob BAttle for Bikini Bottom remasturd PS4.

Almost all the $1.00 games were stuff I already had (I hate to admit it on some of the games lol).  They did have some interesting DS and 3DS games in stock... some hard to find stuff.   Here's to hoping Doom comes in immaculate condition...

@targetrasp good stuff... Game wise, is there cheap games in good condition that are worth picking up?  Or Are you just picking stuff up?   

I'm going fo check this out.  Thank you for sharing.

@BLUEVOODU Radiata Historia is awesome - I'm 20 hours deep right now.

Well...  I may have to add this game to my collection.  Also, Paper Mario Origami King is rather awesome.   Color Splash was great.. though it didn't have the highest reviews.  Origami... that's a great pick up.

I gave up trying to get  PlayStation 5 in early December.  For now, I am waiting.  However, it was interesting on how they created the grip texture of the controller.  Check this out:

How Sony designed the PS5ís ultimate Easter egg - theverge.com

I wonder how many people did / didn't notice this. 

Comments / thoughts...  post it up.

@targetrasp  - did you end up picking this game up around Christmas?

4 more games are coming to the NES and Super NES - Doomsday Warrior, Psycho Dream, Prehistorik Man, and Fire N Ice... a puzzle style game.

NES & Super NES - February 2021 Game Updates - Nintendo Switch Online<\a>

Psycho Dream... does anyone remember that?   What are your thoughts on these additions?   
@retro junkie you've probably knocked these out already  ;D

Amazon Luna Compatible Devices and Browsers - amazon.com

I guess it's another cloud service... but I'm curious if it's work it.  So far $6 per month. 

If you haven't tried it... are you interested or think you will try it?

@Grindspine LOL... yes... yes... I know.  I have a thing about not buying other monthly services right now (IE not paying for TV and lots of other things). 

@targetrasp you're right... and that's exactly what we want to start watching.  And now it's hard to say no with Wandavision.  I would like to get in before the price hike... and may not renew.  But we will see.

Due to Covid.. Black Widow was moved to 2021... at least at this time.  So now we have Wandavision... and it looks very interesting.  I am thinking of paying for a year of Disney+ to check this out.

Who is watching?   What are your thoughts? 

WandaVision returns with a wallop to the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper - tv.avclub.com

It definitely looks pretty cool.   Thoughts? Comments?  Post it up

@targetrasp @retro junkie now you make me want to buy Radiant Historia...

We made a bit of progress in Minecraft on our level.   We are now connecting 2 bases with rails and cart.  That's a major undertaking.  I crafted a pretty cool Ax that gets us tons of stones like gemstones, coal...etc... but no ore like Iron and Gold.   I wonder if @AngelBob is still playing
