What did you just Buy/Receive?

  • @Yoshi Wow... I cant find an official one anywhere...besides them damned scalpers on ebay

  • Went to the movies since it was my first day off in months, nice theatre too had reclineing chairs which was a nice surprise. Afterwards treated myself to a damn good steakhouse.

  • @edsortiz yeah i think it's much easier for Nintendo to restock Australia because we don't have a population anywhere near as big as the US does, and also because we're right near Japan on the globe.

    so given our low population level, its much easier for them to judge exactly how many NES mini units they need to allocate to over here and where abouts in the country the stock should be allocated. whereas the US has like 50 states to decide stock levels for lol

  • also just got this in the mail today. found it extremely cheap preowned while i was surfing EB's website last week at just $18 australian. usually the game goes for like $60 on ebay because it's so niche

    now i just gotta buy myself NMH2 before the Switch NMH game comes out and/or goes up in price on ebay :3

  • @Yoshi its weird its rare there, here in Canada that's like a 6 buck game at eb games

  • @DisturbedSwan How is the Platinum headset compared to the Gold? I've also had the Gold for about 3 years and I'm not going to upgrade just yet, but hey, doesn't hurt to know.

  • @SabotageTheTruth

    They're pretty good, the fit isn't quite as comfy as the Gold's, I've got quite a big head and the rubber strap on top of the Plats can rub against my scalp and cause a bit of discomfort in long play sessions, but it's not an issue as long as you adjust them effectively before putting them on, if you don't have a big head it's a non-issue from what I've heard too.

    As for audio, I'm no audiophile but they definitely sound a slight step-up from the Gold's to me, sound seems to have more depth to it and you can hear the quieter sounds in much more detail and with greater richness, wouldn't say the bass is quite as strong as the Gold's though but it's a much more balanced sound overall.

    Not tried them with any of the PS4 Headset App's presets yet though, so that may pump up the bass etc. for certain games like it did with the Gold's, also not tried the 3D Sound as Uncharted 4 is the only game that uses it.

    Where it strides ahead though is build quality, the Gold's were good enough and lasted me 3 years but these feel sturdy enough to go on for way longer than that with better metal hinges and the aluminium band across the top.

    So yeah, maybe they're a little overpriced, and they aren't a huge step-up in sound quality from the Gold's but for build quality and longevity the Plat's definitely worth the extra bit of cash if your Gold's break whenever, but I probably couldn't really recommend running out and upgrading before then really.

  • I couldn't resist and bought The Disney Afternoon Collection on PSN, those 6 games are imo the pinnacle of Disney games.
    Love the extras like Boss rush, what's especially cool is that you can actually watch the runs of the top 50 in Boss rush and speedrun and learn from the best basically.
    For those who don't know, this is a collection of NES ports that come with a save function (whenever you want) and an instant rewind function (not for speedrun and boss rush of course) like some Rare Replay games have.
    The games are
    DuckTales 1
    DuckTales 2
    Darkwing Duck (my personal favorite)
    Chip 'n Dale 1
    Chip 'n Dale 2
    Talespin (imo the weakest game here, but not bad.)

    Just sad it isn't getting a retail release.

  • @Musou-Tensei Out of all these, I think I only played DuckTales and Chip 'n Dale as a kid, and loved them! I didn't even know they each had a sequel. It's going to be pretty hard to resist a nostalgic impulse buy!

    how much is the collection and is it available physically

  • They apparently sell Strawberry KitKats in America now? I bought some for lunch break at work today. Pretty good, but not something I'd ever go out of the way to import. Definitely gonna miss them if they're just some limited time only dealio.

  • @FF7Cloud 20 bucks digital only for PS4, XB1 and Steam.

  • Samsung S8/2017 Gear VR

  • Oh jeez, a whole bunch of stuff:

    • Nikon D3400 dSLR camera w/ 18-55mm & 70-300mm lenses \ deluxe bundle with a whole bunch of other stuff (cleaning kit, flash, tripod, etc)

    • Neewer NW-700 microphone / stand / mic power supply etc

    • Elgato HD60S capture device

    • Logitech HD Pro C920 webcam

    • Component to HDMI converter

    I'm working to do more game capture / streaming / editing work and needed stuff. Also needed a new camera because photojournalism classes and my own general interest in photography / filmmaking.

  • Bought a cheap used copy of Star Ocean 5 for PS4 in my local 2nd hand game shop.

  • Yeah, I gotta admit to immediately buying a copy of Puyo Puyo Tetris after watching that last stream. It was only like 23$ on amazon, so seems well worth it to me. I adore both puzzle games and I think I'll have tons of fun with it.

  • @Inustar I also just finished watching that stream and I'm almost certainly going to buy it on Switch!

  • It was my birthday earlier this week and from that, some money received as gifts and some of my own cash I've now got:

    • Mass Effect Andromeda
    • Persona 5
    • Night in the Woods

    I have yet to play them because I'm still away from home but it looks like I have a very busy few weeks of gaming ahead of me!

  • I just bought Persona 4 for the PS2.
    Not sure when I'll get around to playing it but I needed it after the time I've put into P5.
