General / National Video Game Day?
« on: September 12, 2011, 05:06:12 pm »
Um, so Bing (I only look at it for the rewards!) just told me it's National Video Game Day?  Not sure what nation nor can I figure out where they're getting that information from.

In any case, happy holiday!

Site Feedback / Flagging item records?
« on: September 09, 2011, 11:00:28 pm »
I was just wondering if it'd be possible to have an option to "flag" a record.  Either to have admin check it or even just to bring it to the attention of other users in case they have the item in their collection.

I just ran across this item: , but as far as I know, there is no "II" in that title, the cover is is a rating pending cover (and looks nothing like this, which is what mine looks like), and some of the other info is not accurate.

My instinct was to go in and change everything, but I noticed that two users are claiming they have the item, so I didn't want to mess with it in case I were wrong.

I know we've all got backlogs... so it's that much sweeter when a game is finished.  You get to cross it off the backlog list and put it away knowing that you've put in your due time to "finish" the game.

Just finished Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes!  A little over 163 hours... So glad I hadn't accidentally recycled the game (as I originally feared)...

I think the next one I'm jonesing for might be Baten Kaitos, but not being able to play it in bed might be difficult...

Anyone going/there?  I've been wanting to go for years, but the plans have never fully materialized (and it's in an iffy time of year - right before our school semester starts).  They always seem to have some really excellent swag there, too...

Just stumbled across this on the internets:

Marketplace / Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes [NDS]
« on: August 06, 2011, 01:53:28 am »
I'm surprised that it's actually keeping me up at night, but I can't seem to locate my cart for Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes... I have a bad feeling that it might've gotten tucked into a pile of old newspapers on my coffee table then taken out to the recycling bin... :(

Trash day has come and gone, and it's nowhere to be found.  So now I'm left with the empty box and manual, wondering what how to go about replacing the game.

I'm still crossing my fingers that I will find it, but do any of you have any tips on how to go about a replacement without paying the cost of a CIB copy?  I guess the regular options are: 1) eBay, 2) waiting for a price drop at GameStop and waiting for a local store to get a cart-only copy...

I know the HD XBLA/PSN version has recently come out, which might make me feel a little better in the sense that I'd still be able to play a version of the game, but the fact that I still have the box is drivin' me nuts... XP

General / Opinions/thoughts on downloadable games?
« on: August 05, 2011, 04:08:47 pm »
I've had the same mindset when it comes to either music or video games... I just prefer the physical item, including the art, packaging, inserts.  Downloading games is definitely convenient and makes a lot of financial sense for smaller developers, but if I have the choice between downloading or buying a packaged game, I definitely go for the packaged game.

But then again... It's been over two weeks, and I'm still waiting on Best Buy to send me the Live Arcade Trio with Limbo, 'Splosion Man, and Trials HD...

General / Game-related novelties

Just thought I'd start a thread on some fun game-related novelties... (sorry if it's already been done):
Game Boy soap

Noticed that I am able to add the same item more than once to my collection or wishlist.

Site Feedback / "Browse" functions I'd like to see
« on: July 10, 2011, 11:16:33 pm »
Excited about the site so far!  I'm going through the "browse" feature to add games to my collection and noticed two things that would be helpful:

- option to not display items already in my collection
- option to sort by most recently added to the site (or a link to a running  list of the "Latest items" featured on the left of the site?)
