Apparently it's not as bad as many people claim. The issue with Battleborn is that it came out just 1 week before Overwatch and its sales and userbase plummeted to almost nothing just 1 week after launch as a result. Also, some people thinks that this game is a mockbuster of Overwatch like some of those low-budget sci-fi movies that are blatant rip-offs of big hollywood productions (eg Transmorphers vs Transformers: Legend of the Fallen or Atlantic Rim vs Pacific Rim).

As a game, though, a bunch of people like it. I need to find the sales data for PS4 copies before opening mine, though, because if the sales on PS4 were much worse than PC then maybe I'm better off keeping it sealed. :P

I finally used my Microplay power-play cards to buy a game with $20 off. I only needed to buy one more $15 game to get the rebate so I got The Nightmare of Druaga: Fushigino Dungeon for the Playstation 2 and Captain Toad for the Wii U. I also got a second copy of Ever Grace for the PS2 last week because my other copy had no box art and the second copy was not only $10 but also CIB.

Now I know what that beast pic from earlier comees from. Altered Beast was fun but I only tried the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version on my Xbox 360 Genesis collection. Nice collection of Sega Master System games so far. I wish Asterix games came out outside Europe, but sadly I think if they came out in North America they would have only sold them in Quebec, which only had 7 million people at the time, because in North America, nobody outside of Quebec and other French-speaking areas of Canada knew who Asterix was, so they probably didn't bother with a NTSC release.

you could buy a PAL master system and a PAL to HDMI tuner

I would also need to buy some adapter because we use 120 volts power sockets here rather than 220. Generally we don't have many issues using Japanese consoles and we can even play Super Famicom games on our AMerican SNES consoles if we break the plastic things inside the cartridge slot, but it depends. Also I bet that ordering PAL games must be expensive due to exchange rate >.< (Japanese SNES games are so cheap, though. Some $200 USD SNES games can be easily purchased for $30 in Japanese edition.)

I am unsure but it looks like Blizzard decided to give me a digital copy of Overwatch for PC for free. Just got a (legit) e-mail from them telling me my account was selected to be given a copy of the game. I don't know if this is temporary like during the free weekend or if it's the full game, but if that's the case then it's quite cool :D

The downside, though, is that I am no longer able to access my battle.net account from their website. It says my password is incorrect, even when entering the right password. I reseted it and I still get the same error. I can login fine from the Battle.net launcher, though, so it must be their site that is completely broken.

Got Wild Arms 5 with some of my many trade-in credits. Next purchase will most likely be Breath of the Wild, then hopefully in a few month the Switch console :D

Awesome @p2 . Now you got your Gamecube itself too, right?

By the way here are my "purchases" of the night, which used my in-store credits (which apparently did not include taxes?):

-Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U)
-Rodea the Sky Soldier (Wii and Wii U)
-Pinball (Zellers pirate Atari 2600 cart)
-Venture (Atari 2600)

Both Atari games were CIB and the two Wii U games brand new.


EDIT: Also I dunno but I think when you buy a game with trade-in credits you don't pay any taxes (at least, in my area), and I read on various forums that this happened to some people who bought games at a different store (EB Games)

So you finally got it ? Cool !
Do a me favor though and NEVER play the Wii U version and go straight to the Wii version.
The WiI U version manages to look worse, with textures smaller than the Wii version based on the 3DS port, and with abyssal controls according to some (all) reviews.
The Wii version has okay controls to can get a while to get used to but other than that, it's a pretty cool game.
I especially like the final boss with tentacles. (you don't know how much i loooove tentacles)
