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.

Looks like they are having a big weeklong sale on the 360. Different games from the 'best of 360' each day. I didn't see it on The 360 dashboard but major Nelson has a link on twitter:

http://majornelson.c...ate-games-sale/

You can buy the games that way. I picked up Bastion and Dante's Inferno for peanuts :)

Just a heads up. microsoftstore.com has some significant sales on games (PC/360/XBO) going on right now, though a lot of what they're offering at the biggest discounts is out of stock. If you have a local Best Buy, however, you may be able to get them to price match. I just picked up Arkham Origins for $10 that way.

Since you mentioned Gog I thought I'd show you this -- it's not on sale but it was one of my all time favorite games.

It's old school though -- came out in 98 but it sets a mood like few games I've ever played.

This may just be a botched test that ends up not being honored, but you can input promo code "1" (that's just the one number) on Microsoftstore.com to get $100 off the Xbox One Titanfall bundle:

Unless I see something unexpected I think the only game I'll really be looking out for during this is Batman Arkham Origins.

Don't have much money to be spending right now.

 

Indie/smaller stuff I prefer to pay full price for.

A note about the Summer Sale - it affects everything on Steam, not just what deals are up on the main page. My entire wishlist went down by half or more. Must...stay...strong.

 

It helps that I bought Crusader Kings II a few weeks ago when it was on midweek sale, so I really have nothing I wa-

I'm not trying to brag or be a brat or anything, but I'm kinda amused by the fact that so many people are like: "Oh no! Steam summer sale! My wallet!" and this thing just... doesn't affect me at all.

 

Like my roommate was telling me that Bioshock Infinite was something like 7 or so bucks on steam, and that's a game I really want to play, but I didn't even flinch at hearing the news. There just was no excitement and the reason?

 

First thought in my head was: "Yeah but... that's a DIGITAL ONLY copy. Why would I want that?"

 

Yeah I realize for a lot of people it's convenient and keeps space clear in their homes but... I just can't do it. I want to be able to HOLD the game in my hand. I always will. Kinda sucks physical copy games don't go down.

 

Still there are of course games that never get a physical release that this would be good for, I just can't think of any that are steam exclusive. Maybe RPG maker.

 

Sorry for the random post, it's just weird to see all my friends get excited for this, and I just feel nothing.


It's a secret to everybody

Oh, I get it. I prefer the physical copies myself, but steam offers a selection which just cannot be equalled by all the local game stores, shops and kiosks put together. As well as actually having sales.

At least steam is doing digital delivery right and not trying to screw us out of our property.

I totally get the physical copy thing.

 

I was the same way...until I lost a disk for Civilization III.

 

Digital copy means I never have to worry about misplacing disks or ruining physical copies.
