Kind of a long shot, but my C-3PO controller for my XBOX 360 seems to have gone missing, so I’m on the lookout for a replacement.

Most will work as long as they’ll plug in. The only one that I can think of that doesn’t work is the Vaus controller for the Famicom. It won’t work on an NES, even though it will physically fit in the controller port.

I’m a huge Earthbound fan as well. I used to rent it fairly often before I bought a copy, it’s hard without the guide.  I purchased it in 1998-ish when a local store had a huge pile of them on clearance for like $30 I think. I used to play it once a year for a long time, but with kids and a fairly demanding job, I haven’t been able to in a while.  Still one of my all time favorites.

Earthbound 64 for sure.

I don’t think I’ve ever done that, but I do have the opposite problem. I’ve owned a Sega Master System for a few years, but I still don’t have any games.

I don’t mind GameStop, I’ve been a pro member ever since they started giving the free $5.00 a month coupons, so I go every month to get some eShop credit, and occasionally preorder something. I’ll miss the free money, but that’s about it. If it wasn’t so close to my house, I likely wouldn’t even do it.

FedEx Express is 1-3 days and travels by air, FedEx Ground is 4+ days and goes by truck. They are very different companies, despite sharing a name.

Somewhat related, I ordered something that was shipped via FedEx. I don't work in logistics but perhaps someone can help me understand how/why an order goes from Florida, to Georgia, to North Carolina, to Mississippi, and finally to my state of Tennessee?

I'm not in any hurry to get the item. I'm just baffled by what looks like a lack of efficiency.

FedEx Express or FedEx Ground?
If it’s Express, it got lost. If it’s Ground, it’s likely where the hubs are, although this particular example seems extreme.

I know a guy that does. Oh, wait…

I think I created them like that way back in the day to make some sense of the original category which was just everything thrown in together. It’s been a long time though.

My gift arrived!  I haven’t opened it yet, but it got here. There was also a bonus package from Jason.

Nice, I saw Pennywise back in the day, 20ish years ago.

Mine hasn’t arrived yet, so I’m not tempted at all.
