Just messin' with you. I traded in my GTX 980 ($550) for a 980Ti ($650) about 7 months after. Luckily I was able to flip the 980 for $350. But I was able to get around 10+ fps on all games (1440p) afterwards, plus the additional VRAM. Definitely an expensive upgrade for so little performance, but I was just spoiling myself at the time.

Nah, its totally true. I was a total hypocrite. But when saying those things i was having in mind a 400 euro price. When i saw them giving so much for my PS4 in a time limited promotion i just figured if it was gonna happen, it would be now.

I was played like a violin. I admit it. ^^

I mean, look at it this way...the longer you waited, the less they would have given you for that PS4. If you want a PS4 Pro and you want to trade in a PS4 to get it, do it now. The PS4 is going to plummet in price faster than the PS4 Pro will, especially now that there's a new, slimmer, PS4 out there.

Pretty much the spiritual successor to Rollarcoaster Tycoon. Getting lots of good reviews and the streams people were doing looked pretty fun. Pretty excited to play it!


Picked up a second copy for my smurf account since it was $28 at Best Buy today!

Threw in a 200GB mSD card and now it's my little faux laptop.


Pre-ordered it because it'll be $35 if I do. And I feel like there's a high chance that Best Buy will make it a pre-order deal with means it'll be $25 when it finally releases. And if it sucks, I can always just return it.

Just ordered for all of the haruhi suzumiya mangas, I wanted to get the last of the novels but they seem to be out of print now, that's what I get for procrastinating buying them. I read that the mangas are pretty spot on from the novels, so I'm ok with that then.

Yah sure, I could read them online, but unlike most of you thieves, I like to pay so people can keep their jobs!

Havent posted here in a while. I have been getting stuff though.

The other day i got Rise of the tomb raider ps4, skyrim remastered PS4 and Devil's third Wii U. All for dirty cheap. Oh... got me a new phone aswell, that might actually run some games, but after running their store... yeah... i don't feel like wasting time with touch screen games.

I'm not buying anything before the switch comes out, but I did finally get Resident Evil 6 on the PS4 cause I got it for 10 dollars, with all the DLC on the disc, for the price, it was worth it. Meh game either way lol
