After watching him play/comment in Game Grumps I realize he was seriously talking out his ass. Dude doesn't know a fucking thing about games or how to play them. I wonder what wiki he ripped off for those videos.
The new guy, Danny, is a bit better at keeping things on track (and he's a pretty good gamer, too). Or at least I guess he doesn't distract as much as JT did. Castlevania is going better than most games do, and I honestly find the back and forth between Danny and Arin much funnier than Jon and Arin.He basically only knows about two series - Mega man and Castlevania (coincidentally the two he made sequelitis videos about). It's pretty aggravating to watch him and Jon play anything else because not only do they know shit-all about what they're doing, they refuse to read on-screen cues that tell them what they're supposed to do, they'd rather just blunder through on autopilot while they make unrelated jokes. There was one sonic episode where they spent something akin to half an hour (or maybe it just felt like that) going all over a level hub trying to find where they were supposed to go because they walked right past the NPC who tells you where to go without a second thought right at the start of the level.
That said, their Goof Troop series was fairly entertaining to watch.
Oh, and whatever you do, don't watch the steam train episode where they play FTL. I about tore my own face off.
Better alternative to mashy gigadisc pad.[DOUBLEPOST=1379257637,1379257573][/DOUBLEPOST]I still dislike the PS split dpad buttons.
It's an improvement, but it's still the worst of the big three consoles controllers by leaps and bounds. I guess they're trying to address this with the Xbox One controller. We'll see.Have you tried one of the newer 360 controllers with the improved d-pad? I know they made them.
Ugh. Gamefly, while filling a niche, could stand to hire a couple of coders from Netflix. Netflix at least has algorithms that prioritize less frequent renters and the like.Gamefly sure does like grabbing from the bottom of the queue. I wonder if it's something in their coding.
The first game I got was at Medium, but since then, yeah, Available Now has been it.Ugh. Gamefly, while filling a niche, could stand to hire a couple of coders from Netflix. Netflix at least has algorithms that prioritize less frequent renters and the like.
I haven't figured out what the prority is with Gamefly queues. I CAN tell you, however, that if the game is listed as anything other than "Available Now", you aren't getting it. Doesn't matter how long it's been since I exchanged games. I've even stripped my list down to one title & sent my disc back & they didn't send me the game for 2 weeks. So IMO there are 2 levels at GF, Available & Not.
Basically this. I get the badges I want and then sell the rest. I then use the profits from that to ether buy the cards that I'm missing for sets I care about or to get small stuff like DLC or keys for TF2. Plus, since I play on Steam at least once a week, I'm eligible for booster packs, which I can sell for even more cash to buy stuff.I sold all my Steam trading cards today and now have 9.53.
I like this trading card thing because I don't fucking care about them and other people do enough to give me 10 bucks.
I know. I've been impressed with the occasional price drop, such as Atlus's $10 drop for eshop Etrian Odyssey IV, Code of Princess, and Soul Hackers, though it dropped more for the retail versions. The awesome one was Aksys dropping Virtue's Last Reward to $25 in the eshop even though it's still $40 for retail. I'll be downloading it once I have some post-Pokemon funds in the eshop.This is entirely because the game companies are unwilling to charge less for downloads, mostly because they don't want retailers to stop carrying the physical copies and because hey, they can get away with it.
I recommend the Legendary steam version. You can still use the Skyrim Nexus mods with it, and you also get all the stuff that comes up on the Steam Workshop.A-doy.
What I want to know is whether there's a difference between the Steam/GoTY/GFWL/GameTap/Wal-Mart versions that would make me want to pick one over the rest.
