    Logan for $0.99 rental on PSN this week

    We rented Logan from our local library. I was a little disappointed by it. Definitely not a bad movie (especially compared to the X-Men universe as a whole) but my expectations had gotten a little lofty considering reviews/opinions.
  2. Totally got lucky and snagged a Farpoint Aim Controller from GameStop. They even responded to one of my tweets! Super pumped to check it out tomorrow!

      Saw they were in stock, was just coming here to post the link for you. Glad you snagged one.

      Nice! It's a def a great feature for PSVR and loved it!

      TK, have you played any other games with the Aim controller?

    Watchu' Buyin' July 2017 Edition

    Just Superhot VR for me this month! Desperately searching for the Farpoint PlayStation Aim VR bundle though. From what I understand, they aren't restocking and have discontinued the bundle. The standalone controller isn't available either. Headscratcher @Sony.
  4. The PSVR Aim Controller hasn't been available since launch. Apparently, the bundle with Farpoint was discontinued right after launch. Now that I can't find one, I want it so damn bad lol

      The 3rd party vendors have jacked prices way up. They're 2-3 times more expensive than they should be.

      Me too! I didn't think it would be worth it, but now I want it!

      Laddie, it doesn't make any sense. They wait for all these fantastic reviews to come out only for it to be sold out everywhere with no restock in sight.

    Would you pay to go to E3 next year?

    Definitely. I heard people were waiting like 5-6 hours to play games. Why even bother at that point?

    Would you pay to go to E3 next year?

    As a huge PlayStation fanboy, I think you'd be insane to pay to go to E3 when you can just pay to go to PSX. PSX is way more fan-oriented specially PlayStation fan-oriented. Even from a third-party perspective, you're going to get way more hands-on time at PSX than E3.

    How do you deal with your backlog? 2017 Edition

    I have two lists: Games to Play (That I Own) and Games to Buy. I try to limit both to games I will legitimately play. I find that this limits my impulse buys a ton. Also since I know what I still need to play, I don't mind waiting until great deals on the Games to Buy list.
  8. Nintendo looking like Sony today! Dayum!

      Indeed! A lot of people seem to be down on this E3, but between Sony's mostly unsurprising but solid showing and Nintendo's surprises today, I think it's been pretty good so far.

      I'm pumped about this E3. PSVR got loads of new announcements and not only from Sony but from third parties too.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is great; go see it

    We're going this week! Can't wait!
  10. Can't wait to see some E3 predictions from my favorite Podunkers!

      Mario Odyssey will definitely do it, though I'm hoping they have more than what they've already announced up their sleeve. Their best bet would be the return of a dormant franchise but somehow I doubt that will happen. I'm sure we'll get some Virtual Console news too.

      Days Gone has the potential to be the next Horizon for PS4. I'm hyped for that one besides the sequel titles.

      It'll be interesting to see more Days Gone. Potential for boom or bust.

    Playstation Plus games for May 2017

    Abzu and Tales from the Borderlands are great entries for PlayStation Plus but unfortunately I already have both. Enjoy gang!

    Switch's physical game cases are identical to PSP's

    Thanks! In that case, good on them to save space! It's also promising to see other software selling well. I was a little worried when I first saw a >90% attachment rate for Zelda. I was wondering if the initial Switch bump was exclusively Zelda diehards but it looks like that it's more just a reflection of how great the game is. The next few months will be telling.

    Switch's physical game cases are identical to PSP's

    Do they save shelf space though? I saw some at the store and they look taller and thicker than bluray cases. Not sure how I feel about them switching up the case size. On one hand people might like to see something different but on the other bluray cases have become the standard for entertainment. Will people view these as "less than" because they aren't the same as PS4, Xbox One and everything else on the shelf? Similar to other aspects of Switch, I think the moment you have to explain any of this to someone you're losing a fraction of sales. Outside of Zelda, how has the Switch software sold?

    New Justice League trailer is actually pretty good

    It can't be as good as it seems like it might be....

    PSN Flash Sale 3/24/17 - Everything Must Go

    I'm considering Spider-man and Headlander. I really enjoyed Headlander when I played it back at PSX 2015. With so many big releases though (including NieR: Automata which I have but haven't played), I'm kinda leaning towards holding off.

    PS Plus games for March 2017 revealed

    Honestly, just discussing it right now and trying to come up with ideas myself I've come to the conclusion that they could never make everyone happy. If they included more popular games, more people would have already bought them. If they included popular indies, people would still ask for AAA. If they give away 10 titles a month, I'd be sad that I can't get to the majority of them. I guess the way it's set up now there's a good variety of games and a good chance that you'll get your money's worth on 5-6 genuinely good-great games a year.

    PS Plus games for March 2017 revealed

    My biggest issue with PS Plus is that they give away too many games. With a backlog as deep as mine, I'd be lucky to play even one of the six every month.
  18. I haven't been as excited as I am for Horizon in a long, long time.

    1. Jason Clement

      Looking forward to playing that sometime down the road when I have more free time. Glad to see it's getting great reviews!

      Nice! Same here. I ended up getting the CE and looking forward to it! Gonna be going through backlog so I can make room for the HDD lol.

      I was really close to getting that as well TK. Not even really sure why I decided not to...

    PSN Flash Sale 2/17/17- Action Deals

    I'd probably enjoying playing one of the Marvel games again but that's too much for them. I'll wait until they drop lower.
  20. Cancelled my Switch preorder. Demand doesn't seem all that high for it.

      I wouldn't say demand isn't high; you can't currently buy it anywhere from what I'm seeing. But I don't know if it'll command scalper prices; that remains to be seen.

      Nintendo also said that they'll meet supply demands.

      I would have cancelled but a friend's fiance really wants it, so I'm hanging onto it so he has a shot to get one.

    Share your last beaten games here!

    I finished Telltale Batman last week. I enjoyed it but thought it was a bit overrated. Honestly, I'm kind of over the whole superhero origin story thing.
  22. Check out this year's Secret Santa post in the Bonfire Chat, Podunkers!

    GWG December 2016! Announced ^^

    Another one of those months where I see people talking about (not here but on social) that GWG is pulling ahead of PS Plus yet all four of those have already come to PS Plus.

    Gotham City Sirens movie announced

    Can't agree with you completely. I'm with you on the Marvel movies. They are cliche, boring and, at best, 7/10. The DC movies on the other hand have been downright awful. I love DC and after the Nolan Batman films I had super high hopes but Batman v, Superman and Suicide Squad were seriously bad movies. Not bad comic book movies, straight up bad movies. Now, there was a good movie in both of them but cumbersome plots with unclear motives, awful directing, fumbled key scenes, and wasted performances make them nearly unwatchable. I promise you, if they don't change something up, the DC cinematic universe will die much sooner than people think.
