Ugh that sucks man. I'm sorry to hear that. BUT that means we should be battle.net friends. So send me your name on steam or something.

Fucking Canadian dollar... 79.99 -89.99 per games now. fucking ripoff! When did we go back to the 80s and 90s when it was 120 dollars per game!
Yeah... in europe it was the same. When i was living in Portugal games were going for 70€ at retail during the last gen and into this gen. My PSN account is still portuguese (though i tink its unified for all europe? i'm not sure.) so i still see most games launching at that price... even though i live in the Netherlands now.

Games are so cheap in the US.

For comparison, overwatch and mirrors edge are launching for 70€ in europe on PSN. Retail here in NL is 65€.

I might aswell say it.

Probably bad of me to support the pre-order practices... but i got a bunch of pre-orders done for the next couple of months:

Fire Emblem fates SE - 3DS
Tokyo mirage sessions SE - Wii U
Guilty Gear Xrd - revelator - ps4
The technomancer - ps4
Carmaggedon - max damage - ps4
WoW: Legion - pc


I'm excited for all of them. Theres also star ocean wich i'm unsure about. This year is full of stuff. Especially June. Its packed.

I honestly and genuinely think that all Sony, MS, Nintendo and Valve should all be investigated for price fixing in Canada. They *never* lowered prices when our dollar was at par, but they sure as fuck raise them the second the dollar goes down.

All for the same amount and at the same time! What a "coincidence".

I bought these a couple of weeks ago.



I went to Japan. I went shopping.



Some cool wall hangings



Made Joe jealous!



Made Spider-Prime jealous!



Made nobody jealous!









These were the two coolest shirts I bought, other than the Dreamcast one.

That last t-shirt is pretty cool. The problem with prints is they lose their color a bit after beeing washed.

I got this lords of shadow 2 shirt with a print that got a bit whitened after beeing washed.

That's crazy Mirror's Edge is only 37/46 euros in the UK. Uncharted 4 was only 35 at Shopto. Games prices are dropping first in the UK over the last year.



I brought in the last couple of weeks.

Battleborn (XB1)
Uncharted 4 (PS4)
Lichdom: Battlemage (XB1)
Shadow Of The Beast (Retail) (PS4)
Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 (PS4)
Gundam Breaker 3 (PS4)

Summon Night V (PSP) finally turned up in the post as well from Gajinworks. >.>

I think lots of people import from the UK due to this. So. i'm not surprised if the competition spurs a bit there.

And yes i have played Mars war logs. The technomancer happens before during and after from what i understood. It will be cool meeting the characters from logs again.
I also loved Bound by flame, so i have no doubt that i will love the game. Spiders do the kind of games i like. The old Bioware style RPG. Before they went all DLC and open world on us, instead of story driven.

How did you buy this when the game isn't out yet and the only retail version getting released is in Asia?

Well I pre-ordered it the same time I ordered Gundam Breaker 3 and since I paid with paypal paid for it straight away. It's out on the 17th May in Asia.

$14 on Steam


Watched someone play the first 30m of this and really found it kinda charming. Heard it has a disappointing ending, so I'll see for myself. But since I used to be a geology interpreter at Bryce Canyon, I'm kinda excited to 'step back into that mindset' and explore fictional Yellowstone.

I don't know why I bought this. I mean, it was only $8...but I don't even play Starcraft past the story.
