I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

I thought I posted about this, but...I guess not.

https://www.amazon.c...=street fighter

I got this for Christmas. I highly suggest it. I haven't read the whole thing. But I've read a bit of it. It's basically the history of the entire franchise, rundowns of the characters (some more in depth than others of course) and lots of pretty pictures. Definitely love this thing.

I'm and sooooooo falling in love with this franchise all over again. I am dying for the 30th Anniversary Edition to come out. DYING!

EDIT:
Holy crap, guys! I just got Street Fighter Resurrection Season 1 for free with my Amazon Prime membership. It looks awesome so far. I'm only on the second episode. I won't post any spoilers, but if you haven't seen it, it's shaping up to be pretty awesome...after only seeing the first episode...but still...pretty awesome.

So I was just thinking...what ever am I to do now? I already just recently watched: Van Damme Street Fighter, Street Fighter Animated, Street Fighter Legend of Chun Li, Street Fighter IV Ties That Bind, Street Fighter Assassin's Fist, Street Fighter Ressurrection, Street Fighter Alpha and Street Fighter Alpha Generations (actually, I fell asleep through that, I may try that again, but anywaaaaaays).

What's left to do? NOTHING. I've got NOTHING! Woe is me! How is this my life? I am totally Street Fighterless.

Oh wait! What's this on my shelf. Oh...oh my! Street Fighter II V! I completely forgot I had this. Later all! See you...well...this may take a while.

The Udon comics are pretty cool. Nothing terribly deep, but follows its own way fairly well.

And if you're REALLY hard up for more Street Fighter, you could always try tracking down the old Malibu comics.

So I went ahead and reserved the 30th Anniversary Collection at Game Stop yesterday for the Switch. Went ahead and paid it off too. I didn't realize it was so close. It comes out at the end of the month. Crazy!

So I'm off on vacation this week. Now that I've finished up my Firefly marathon, I figured I'd try some Street Fighter II V.

So...Ken's a redhead, the first American we see is a rude morbidly obese woman, the U.S. Airforce is basically a pack of thugs...first two episodes and...I have concerns.

Okay, let's talk music for a bit. Which game would you say has the best music. For me...

1. Street Fighter IV
I even have the soundtrack to this and I love how it's not just 16-bit midi like we had up to that point. It's fully orchestrated and it doesn't take long to hear the themes behind it. You know very quickly just whose theme you're listening to.

2. Super Street Fighter II
It's still the 16-bit midi files, but they're a drastic step up from the previous Street Fighter II themes.

3. Other Street Fighter II soundtracks
They're a step down from Super Street Fighter II, but still listenable.

4. Street Fighter 5
Yes, seriously, I put this one below the midi files because...well...you have to listen to the music for a while before it finally gets to the recognizable bits of the character themes. And whereas Street Fighter IV has it loud, proud and in your face, Street Fighter 5 took the opposite idea and really just mellowed the main themes to where they're really just a minor incidental parts to the rest of the pieces. So, honestly...not a fan.

5. Street Fighter Alpha
Really the only thing I can say about this is that it brought us Sakura's theme. Everything else was changed just enough to make it unique to Alpha but still played it safe enough to I might as well be listening to Street Fighter II

6. Street Fighter III
Did I miss something? Did they even do the normal themes? Cause I can't seem to find them. And at this point I'm only looking for Chun-Li, Ken and Ryu.

Street Fighter Zero (sadly not Alpha) has an instrumental version of "Itoshisa To Setsunasa To Kokoro Tsuyosa To" so therefore it is the best.

This song plays during the Dramatic Battle between Ryu & Ken VS Bison. In Alpha it's just Bison's theme. :(

Well if that's the case, I probably wouldn't spend too terribly much money on Zero if the asking price is a lot if I were you. If all you want is the music, worst case scenario you can bookmark the video up there...maybe see if there's a soundtrack you can get that would cost less than importing a game.

 

Course, that's just me. I know I've spent more money than I should have on things before just because I was a fan.
