  1. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/supreme-court-rules-states-can-require-online-retailers-collect-sales-n873416 In NY we're taxed by just about every website there is, but now the rest of the country can enjoy paying taxes for all their online purchases. No real change for amazon tho since they already charge taxes for almost every state anyway. I'm wondering if this could force ebay to collect taxes on every single individual seller's transactions now.
  2. Good luck with the new cable! I bet that other one didn't work for them but they were trying to save face. If the new cable doesn't work then maybe the CRT is ok and the actual issue is the graphics card not outputting video.
  3. I just watched a quick video of GW1 roller beetle racing. I don't remember ever playing that race. I can definitely see the resemblance to the new mounts tho.
  4. I'm so confused about that mount. lol. Its a hover bike that is somehow connected to the beetle via magic or something. That thing looks so huge it'll be an eyesore once they release a stardust skin for it. Anet has gotten much better with their trailers. I'm getting a bit hyped for this.
  5. What kind of connection was the old CRT monitor? VGA? A vga to hdmi adapter should work. If you have one of those you might have bought the wrong type. There are hdmi to vga convertors that have the same looking connections but will only convert a digital signal to analog when you'd want one that converts from analog to digital/hdmi output. Good luck finding CRT monitors nowadays. I haven't seen one for sale in years.
  6. Hopefully this game has no instant death boss mechanics like Mighty No. 9. God that game was such a let down.
  7. This does look very impressive. I like the angles, lighting, atmosphere, character design. I hope they show how the controls actually handle. It'd be a shame if its just a button masher. If there is some skill involved in getting those kill hits, it'd be pretty amazing.
  8. I was a big fan of Kingdom Hearts and this remaster looks amazing compared to the original game on PS2. I would love to replay this game again on the PS3. Like I said above, I was a big fan of KH.. until KH2 came out. Kingdom Hearts 2 had much better game play compared to KH1, unfortunately, KH2 was actually KH3 because it was a sequel to a gameboy game. Considering the amount of KH games that have come out since KH2 on hand held systems, I can only assume KH3 will actually be Kingdom Hearts 9. Unless KH3 will be a stand alone game that requires no plot knowledge from the previous hand held games, I will have no interest in playing this game. Click here to view the article
  9. Black ops 3 is currently free for PS+ members for PS4 as a promotion for black ops 4: https://store.playstation.com/en-us/product/UP0002-CUSA02290_00-BLACKOPS3GAME000 I just claimed it. I'm glad it has a campaign... unlike black ops 4.
  10. I'm buying this on day one. šŸ˜ƒ
  11. The gameplay looks good and the trailer didn't give away much of the plot which is nice. But the graphics look like a bit of a downgrade. Lara looked a bit more realistic in the first 2 games.
  12. Almost as good as Xena and Hercules.
  13. I was tempted to buy a steam controller at one point, but it didn't look comfortable to use. Why was it bad for you? Can those touch pad things emulate mouse movements decently? I bet when they say the VCS will run modern games they probably mean modern mobile games like Clash of Clans and Angry Birds. A base model would have been great. I'd probably still pass on it tho. lol. The only person I knew that owned every Atari game and was a big atari fan was my Uncle Tom and he passed away many years ago. I do think I'll buy a retro pi, case and some decent wireless contollers an make my own retro gaming system. It should cost less than $70 and I could load any game from atari to N64 on it. I would like to buy a SNES Classic tho. I like the look of it and I'd play most of the games on it. If it had Chrono Trigger on there I'd have bought it asap. Super Mario 3 was the cut off for my parents too. The only games they play now are puzzle games. My dad loves playing sudoku.
  14. The only people that will buy this is YouTubers and eBay flippers. There is no way these will be mass produced and the $300 price tag is specifically to target those 2 groups of people. They should have made it a simple atari classic like the NES and Super NES classic and sold it for $80. The only modern games it'll play will most likely only be games that are currently playable on linux via steam. They mentioned no developers for the system and made no announcement about new launch titles. I bet they'll only be on eBay for about $400 soon and we'll never hear of it again like ouya.
  15. I bought a Nvidia Shield yesterday with that 20% off ebay sale. (These random once a month one day ebay coupon flash sales are really really nice.) I'll get the shield delivered sometime tomorrow or monday. I'm looking forward to trying it out and hopefully it'll serve great as a plex server for me. I've been using plex for a while now on my pc and it great, but I really want to have access to all my movies/anime/series to watch in bed without having to have my main pc on acting as a media server. Its also nice, that it fully supports 4k. When I eventually buy a 4k tv, all my 4k streaming needs will already be in place.

  16. ROTFLMAO! I guess I'll lose.
  17. The Disney princess part at the end is great. I loved the first movie.
  18. Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Lauren Cohan (Maggie) will both be leaving TWD next season. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/walking-dead-andrew-lincoln-exit-norman-reedus-eyes-20m-payday-1115515 http://bloody-disgusting.com/tv/3502081/lauren-cohan-confirmed-also-exiting-walking-dead-season-9/ Daryl will become the new main protagonist.. I wonder how much of the comic the show will be able to follow with major characters leaving like this.
  19. The housing market is crap around here for what we can afford. -_-;Ā I really really want to move this year. I just hope we can find something before winter.

      Yeah screw that. I need that internet the day I move in. Its aggravating how the housingĀ market is right now. Everyone thinks that have a golden turd. I've looked at houses that look great in pictures and in person are dilapidated disasters that need major rehab work and are listed 40k more than they should be. The other houses that are listed for the right prices sell so damn quick they're on the market for 2 days to a week tops. There were 2 houses last year that would have worked for us but we hesitated thinking we'd find something better and a year later we're still looking. We won't hesitate again. -_-;

      I really want to find a house and move at this point just to get it all over with. Its so time consuming looking constantly online and going to a potentialĀ house just to find out its a dump.

      That seems to be the way it is. You either get privacy or internet. I think I even had a friend that offered to pay for the cables to be ran to his house because it was one of those awkward situations where the street across from him had good internet but his street didn't. They still turned him down. Its pretty amazing how terrible our internet structure still is. And with city codes and what not I bet it's too much of a hassle to go through the process to run cables to a single house just to give someone access to your service.

  20. I'm more impressed by the Cinematic trailer than I am by the actual gameplay. Blizzard can surprisingly make Pixar quality movies. The game looks like a fun FPS multiplayer with heroes like a MMOBA game. I hope they do more with this game than just make a competitive shooter. I'd love to see a single player / co-op campaign. With a cinematic trailer like that, the cut scenes would be great. Source: battle.net Click here to view the article
  21. I'm glad the behemoths and elite classes are gone. Especially the elite classes. I'm ok with a squad based killstreak, its not that much different than BF4's system of having a commander on the team order a missile strike if we owned C base in conquest. Predictive recoil is much better than random bullet spread. They said we can loot ammo from dead people, I hope that means we can get ammo for out current kit and they removed the option of picking up the enemy's kit. I can't think of anyone that actively loved picking up a random kit and having to adjust their playstyle because they ran out of ammo. And good riddance premium pass!
  22. I'm looking forward to any info that gets revealed. I wont have the time to watch the video live. I hope premium is done for.
  23. The season finale just ended this past monday. I started this series and gave it a couple eps. I almost dropped it, but by the third ep shit started going down and I got sucked into the plot. This was a surprisingly great series with excellent acting. Its so refreshing to see a 1 off series like this. I don't think there is going to be a season 2 and if there is it would probably ruin the experience. This played out like an anime in a sense. It started and finished the entire plot. There was no filler episodes and everything tied in together. I hope this inspires AMC to make more stand alone short series. Hell, I wish more of america tv would follow this direction instead of endless reality shows or drawing out a series so long that it gets canceled without a finale. This show proves its possible for US tv to actually give us a story in a complete season. Well done AMC. I can only compare this to Stephen King mini series, except better. Now I wish all those old Stephen King mini series were actually given the full season treatment like this.
  24. I haven't posted a topic for a humble bundle in quite a while. This topic will be for all future humble bundles like how we keep the ps+ games topic updated. This current bundle looks pretty good: Capcom X Sega bundle for ps4/ps3/vita https://www.humblebundle.com/games/capcom-sega-psn I'm going to spend the full $15 to get the dead rising games and the valkyria chronicles rpg.
  25. Premium needs to go. After the 1st dlc the only players left are premium players, most of which have no life and decent team balance usually goes out the window. I'd rather see a free map introduced once every month instead of a four map dlc pack with exclusive guns that you need to stay competitive. What i really want is a battlefield game that has the same mechanics as bf4. And screw planes. If the next battlefield game expects ppl to use permanently placed AA guns to take out planes I might not even buy it. I'm that sick of plane bomb spam. Westie says he hates random unavoidable deaths but didn't mention the planes when they are the primary issue imo. Endless explosion bomb spam.
