    5 dollars for Stardew Valley? What in the shit sauce? That's just like grabbing the game and running. Worth way more (no idea about the price but in terms of the actual game)

    Yeah I know. Idk if they priced it wrong or didn't care cause I have found some great games at this store for cheap. Bought the other day at this same store a near mint original gray Gameboy for $15. Either they don't care about what it's worth and just want to sell it quick or they don't know anything. I think they just want to sell things quick.

    I don't really find a lot there but I same times do

    I've been having a little too much fun buying synths...latest additions to the family: MicroBrute, Kastle, and a Bitrazer module(great for lo-fi). Have a Microgranny on the way.

    I got 2 new PS3 games today:

    1. Dragon Age Origins (my first DA game. Question: is all the DLC story related(this game has a lot of DLC according to Wikipedia) or is it just skins, costume, weapons etc....? oh and how much % of the DLC is free? i hope the story stuff is free. This game came out back in 09 so it should be free now or at least a pound or two.)
    2. Brink (is this any good. I mean HLTB says it is only 6 hours long :wtf:????)

    1. The big DLCs are more like extra side quests, not directly related to the story but adds content that is, occasionally, referenced later. Some of them add additional background info to party members, some of them give you new party members etc. You can check what DLCs are like here: http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Downloadable_content_(Origins) And no, they're not all free, you have to buy them. Doesn't matter when a game came out, DLCs will likely always cost money on their own. If you wanted all the DLCs, you should've picked up the Ultimate Edition which is, in all likely hood, the same price as the base game at this point.
    2. Never judge a game by how long it takes to beat it, that's just silly. Brink is "only 6 hours long" to complete the main story, but the big appeal was supposed to be it's multiplayer. Unfortunately, Brink is regarded as a shit game and it's likely nobody is playing it at all. Prolly should've saved your money there.

    I wanted origins since it was on my backlog and brink i ONLY got because the voucher had £1 left and i diddnt want to let that last quid to go to waste lol. And no i wasnt judging brink by its "time to beat". Instead i was thinking "is this really a Bethesda game?" i mean aren't they known for big plots which are 10+ hours? Believe me i checked through the shelves multiple times in order too see what other games were £1 but brink was the only interesting one. So yeah i will check it out and see if i like it. Personal experience has taught me that never let others opinions dictate your view of a game or series. I only care for what i think about a game but i am interested in why others hate or dislike a game that i like. One prime example of such a game would be FF XIII :ha:

    And yeah the DLC for origins dont seem like they are massively story related. So meh, i aint interested in them. But regarding the pricing, i really dont see why companies dont drop the prices a little at least when their game is 8 years old. But whatever that is another topic for another time.

    Thanks for your help with these two games.:mthr:

    It's not a Bethesda game, they just published it. It's developed by Splash Damage.

    My nespi case came yesterday. It's a really nice case and the box it came in was a nice thick cardboard box. It's a little hard to get everything plugged in to the pi3 but it fits nicely inside the case.
    It uses a separate USB port that is connected to the power and reset buttons that are then connected to the gpoi pins(I think that's was there called, can't remember right now) on the pi. The power and reset buttons both work great. Paid $25 Canadian so about $20USD. So I got it at the cheap price

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Yes. You need a Vita running Henkaku to use the SD2Vita.

    I bought a Nintendo Switch (before 3.0.1 comes pre-loaded on the systems), Breath of the Wild and 1-2 Switch, both used (and probably pre-licked).

    Well I do have 1 vita with henkaku, but I haven't turned it on in over 6 months (I think). I was planing on installing the permanent hack on it this week
