Mario on Friday.


#282

Hmm. The Amazon physical preorder price is $12 off for Prime members.

Hmmm…


#283

Why do they keep doing this? I don’t want a cartridge, but I also want to save $12.


#284

Yep. So conflicted. Wish they gave discounts on digital, but they won’t.

It does say guarantee delivery on Friday if I order today, but I don’t really trust. Got a few hours to decide.


#285

Don’t worry about the delivery. Every single time I’ve pre-ordered a physical video game with Amazon Prime, it showed up by EOD on the official release date.


#286

I committed to not dealing with carts, and I’ll pay the extra $12 to not ever have to think about them.


#287

Yeah. I’ve thought about all the times I got annoyed having to search for a cartridge already. $12 is not worth it.


#288

Oh, look who we have here.


#289

LOL, bitching about $12 on your cheap hobby.


#290

That’s like, 12 bagels, or 6 really good bagels, or 3 full on breakfast sandwiches.


#291

Everything for my cars is $100s-$1000s, you get no sympathy.


#292

Yeah, because computers and cameras as so cheap.

#293

Ha, $2K is like half an engine rebuild.


#294

I would hope a car engine that is rebuilt lasts longer than the 5-6 years I get from a desktop PC.


#295

Except that by then I’d be rebuilding with stronger components for more power. Much the same reasoning for building a new desktop.


#296

Except software continues to demand more horsepower. Roads are still roads. I wouldn’t buy a new PC if software didn’t get more demanding. Also, if my current one wasn’t getting all flaky.


#297

And games are just a waste of time, let’s not go there.


#298

I just don’t want physical carts. I don’t want to have to carry anything ever.

I suppose the only exception would be games I expect to play a few times and then never again (so I can sell/give away the cart).


#299

Y’know, the baffling part is out of the last few preorders of physical I’ve done from Amazon, only one has shown up on release day. Kinda embarrassing considering I live like right next door to the offices haha.

The fact that this adapter I bought for Smash for Wii U will work on the Switch makes me think my eventual Switch purchase is likely.
