      @TheBlueGuardian Well, it's afternoon here now anyway.

  6. Night, buddies!

  7. Let's gooooo, I got my second vaccine dose!

    Didn't have its difficulties though. I nearly fainted from a side effect and had to be taken to a medical room for a while... but I think I'm okay now.

      That's excellent news!

      That's great news (not the near fainting, that's pretty bad) so you should be more protected.

      Had my first dose a couple of weeks ago and my body was shaking for 20 minutes, had to be escorted out with a nurse and a staff member by my side.

      Glad you're better. Great news that you've had your second vaccine.

      Good afternoon! :P

  10. Night, buddies!

  11. I'm back! Tune in 12:00 pm EST for the premiere of my review of Terminator Genisys! Get ready for a whole new take on this infamous sci-fi blunder that's sure to make you think twice!

  12. Couldn't sell the consoles today, oof. I have to wait for the weekday for them to have the time to inspect all my items.

    1. NegaMix


      I know that feeling. Took the game store a while for them to finally receive and inspect my old Switch Lite when I sent that in a while back. Heck, I'm still struggling to sell my old PS4.

      Hopefully the wait won't be too long for you.

      Can understand. This is why I usually go during the week to trade something in because of the wait especially consoles, one time waiting an hour and a half so go around town until it is just after the estimated time. Weekends are pretty bad even though lately due to the virus, it hasn't been as bad waiting and sometimes I'm more or less the only person in the store. Then again people are streaming/downloading more and a store is ready to close so less places to buy stuff especially new and Japanese developed games (heading towards an Amazon only environment and they have put up the prices due to less competition).

      I've known days where they couldn't accept my games due to the person on the counter (one person refused a game and there was nothing wrong with the game at all, no scratches, label wasn't wearing away or damaged, no bitrot, no water damage, etc) and had to go in the next time.

      @Mr Loopone I had a similar experience earlier this week. Went to trade in my PS4 for cash as I'd basically spent everything I'd saved on getting my new PS5, but one store wouldn't take it because they didn't have the cash to trade it for (basically, they'd been having far more trade-ins for store credit than cash, and they advised me to come back during the weekend) and the other store would take it... but they said the controller was broken, so they'd have to discount it. (It wasn't broken, at least not the way they suggested, and was surprisingly easy to fix.)

      I'm gonna try again tomorrow, but if I can't get the money I'm gonna have to sell privately.

      took a ps2, with all the cables but no controller, into cex recently. Said they wouldn't take it without a controller cos they couldn't test it otherwise. Now im sure theres probably some covid restriction but you have PS2 controllers on your shelves, just appropriate one for a few minutes?

      Part of me wanted to be a smartass and buy a PS2 controller right there just to trade it back in with the console.

    5. NegaMix


      @BadBehavior Based on my experience, it wouldn't surprise me if CeX turned around and said they still can't sell it for some reason after that.

      Like, the ones local to me often say that they can't take my controllers (usually DualShock 4s) because the controls are broken, like the right stick constantly acting like it's being pressed. I take it home, plug it in, and... nothing. A teeny bit of stick drift (which was swiftly dealt with via a quick air-clean) and that's it.

      And then there's the time I got a red PS4 controller from them, only for it to go haywire just a few minutes after using it. And THEN they said that they couldn't take it back because the label on the back had been removed... which was the condition they sold it to me in the first place!

  13. Heading out to sell some obsolete consoles and games I already backed up! If I play my cards right, I can get an Xbox Series X!

    1. NegaMix


      Damn, first the PS5, now you're aiming for a Series X? Covering all the bases, I see.

    2. Failinhearts


      Pretty much.

      my sis will get the ultimate psychonauts 2 experience one way or another

    3. NegaMix


      Heh, fair enough. I'm fine with the Series S, but a part of me does wonder if it'll be worth upgrading to the mini-fridge later on.

      Which consoles are you trading in?

    4. Failinhearts


      PS4 Pro, my old 3DS XL (since I have a New 3DS XL), eventually my old Xbox One and a ton of Wii U and 3DS games I managed to backup onto my respective console's storage via hacking... so the copies are obsolete.

    5. NegaMix


      Cool, sounds like you'll certainly cut a good chunk off the price of a Series X.

      I wish you luck! Hopefully you'll grab one.

    6. Failinhearts


      I'm planning on starting with All Access, so a subscription that covers the Series X and Game Pass for 2 years.

    7. NegaMix


      Ah, yeah I'm familiar with that. It does seem like the easiest way to grab one at the moment. If I hadn't gone for a phone contract recently, that might have been how I got an Xbox. (Well, that and the Series S becoming more widely available recently.)

      Still, good luck! And don't hesitate to look me up on Xbox if you're ever up for some multiplayer shenanigans too! 😉

    8. Failinhearts


      Thank you, and sure thing! Feel free to friend request me now while I'm away. My gamertag's Failinhearts as always.

      Mr Loopone

      Enjoy your Xbox Series X.

      I've been getting rid of games and consoles myself, must have got rid of over 100 games and a Vita this year alone (last year was my Mega Drive, SNES, Game Boy, GBA, DS, my brother's ZX Spectrum that was handed down and fair amount of original Xbox games since I had half of the console's library). Been really slimming down my collection and considering getting rid of my Wii U next and my Master System if I can find the thing.

      Mainly focusing on the 360, the PS4 and my retirement console, Switch. Just a few games from each left, more on the latter.
