    When I was buying baseball cards at least I got a piece of gum. That's a tangible, physical item...kind of...

    So I’ve play MTG competitively for the last 6-7 years after getting into the game shortly before that.

    So there’s not any cards that are obsolete, they have something called the Reserved List, which is a list of cards they’ve said they will not reprint. Not all of those cards have real value, it just depends on their competitive playability. The competitively played cards on that list though are a really good investment. The game isn’t going away anytime soon and there’s only a finite number of those cards that gradually keeps getting smaller.

    So... I think this week may finally be the week I jump into the current gen. Had just been playing RDR, NCAA football and college hoops but with RDR2 coming out soon and a couple guys bugging me to get a new system to play NHL I suppose it's finally time.

    I'll be leaving Sony for the first time, but really the only thing I think I would miss is The Show and quite frankly you have to get pretty deep into that game for maximum enjoyment so it's probably for the best.

    With that being said, any awesome Xbox One S deals?

    S is only 249 normally now. With black friday deals running already, id bet you can get a pretty nice price .

    Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp definitely feels like an AC game. But with the mobile pay to reduce timers model added to it.

    Okay, I'll bite.

    How has Subway not dropped a jumbo-sized lawyer train on Ubisoft for the Jared boss fight?

    There's fair use, and then there's THAT.

    That's about right. And it's Trey and Matt who do stuff like this for sport.

    Still, you'd think some suit in a Subway boardroom somewhere would have thrown a conniption to a lawyer. Ubisoft went there and they seem to have gotten away with it. That's chutzpah.

    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    My pc went kaput in October. Finally bought a new one. Expect to get it next week. Got the green light (from wife) to get the dual Geforce 1080 video card setup.

    So should be great for 4k gaming!

    I did compromise on cpu and only get the i7, not the i9.

    GOG vs Steam

    If the price is the same, is there any reason why I wouldn’t use GOG?

    If you install mods on a game, the Steam Workshop is easier. That seems to be the big difference for me.

    Yeah Steam Workshop is far easier.

    Nexus mods is easy, if the game is supported. They have an installer.

    I'm sure Big Pharma has an antidote:
