Every time i see this thread, I think it is asking about video game pick up lines.
Thought that until I actually opened up the thread for the first time today :P

Not a deal or anything, but my favorite thing I've bought for my SNES is this flash cart: http://www.stoneagegamer.com/super-everdrive-cart-only-na.html Very convenient.

ooh I saw something like that for the NES before. But I wasn't sure if their site was still active so I didn't take any chance. Also the price is a little high x.x

I was a little hesitant at first, but if you want to play expensive games on the console (Earthbound, Mega Man, etc.) and don't care for buying/collecting them, it's pretty nice.

I got enough games right now I think so I think I'll wait a bit. :P I also need to limit my purchases now since I want an Xbox One and had to get my mouse and keyboard replaced. :P

So I finally got Halo Master Chief Collection now. I still need the console, though (probably on Black Friday weekend).


Also, just to tell how terrible GameStop is, Halo was not even listed until this morning on EB Games website, even though it came out Tuesday. And before Tuesday there was absolutely no ad nor any mention of the game anywhere on their site.

Just like how I got Fzero before I got my SNES but with an extra zero on the price tag? :p

Oh Dj, speaking of Game Stop. If you look in the authors page, er devs or something like that on their website, they have me listed under there. XD

Wait wow that's nice! I assume it's because of the PSVita material?

Also now Gamestop is at it again: their EB Games website seems like it will be the last to post their Black Friday deals. Oh well, I already know where the Xbox One will be $50 off next weekend and I'll go there instead. :P

More like your XOne is gonna cost ~400 while my SNES costed ~40 and we both got games for the console before we got the actual thing.

Does Dolphin count? It's free and can be used for ranked Melee netplay! (Think For Glory, only with stages. And only 3 frames of lag.)

I think this topic in general is more for physical copies of games and especially retro gaming. :P
