  1. I just won my first ever game of Tetris 99! Is it wrong that I'm so excited about this?! Two times before I managed to place 3rd, but it felt like a miracle to get there. I never thought I'd be able to win a game, but somehow I did it! I definitely got the right pieces at the right time - at the very end I got two Tetrises in a row, which dumped 20 lines on my last opponent. Huzzah! Also, be sure to head over to the giveaways forum and vote to enter my $20 eShop gift card giveaway.
  2. Damn, you're right. I may steal these if a do a similar giveaway next year...
  3. As long as you voted, you're in the running. Good luck!
  4. I'm giving away a $20 eShop gift code for the holidays. Be sure to go over and check it out! You must vote by December 14th, 2019.
  5. The first giveaway was fun. Who's up for another? This time for a $20 Nintendo eShop gift code! Once again, thanks to @Beyondthegrave07 for letting me, uh, "borrow" his formatting. Same rules as last time. How do you enter the contest? Read this fun and exciting FAQ to find out! Q: How do I sign up and when is the sign-up deadline? A: Vote in the highly scientific poll. That's it! You must vote by the deadline of December 14, 2019! The deadline is firm, so make sure to cast your votes by December 14, 2019. Also make note that U.S. Eastern Time will be the enforced time zone, so be sure to vote by 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time on December 14, 2019! The same date has been bolded three times in one answer, so it must be important! Q: Who is eligible for the drawings? A: I want to give as many people as possible a fair chance, but I need set a cutoff to avoid inflated entries with multiple accounts. Therefore, you must have been a member on this site on or before November 1st, 2019 to be in the drawing. That's it. No post requirement is necessary. If you have multiple accounts, please only use one account in the giveaway to make this as fair as possible. Q: I noticed that you gave away a PSN code last week, and now you’re giving away a Nintendo eShop code. Sweet! Does that mean you’ll also be giving away Xbox and Steam codes? A: No, for two main reasons: 1. My funds are not unlimited, and B. I’m supporting the platforms I like best. Q: What if I win the eShop code, and it doesn't work? Do I get another code? A: Nope. My wallet can’t afford to play that game! Q: What region will the code be for? Can I get a code from whatever region I want? A: This will be a U.S. code. While I recognize that this site has members from all over the world, and everybody is welcome to enter, getting a code from a region other than my own would be more expensive. You can always make a U.S. alt account to use the code (you may have one already), or feel free to trade it on your own for a code from a different region. Nintendo is definitely stingier in their sales than Sony, but you can still find some great games for $20 or less. Q: How will you choose the winner? A: Nothing complicated, although I will enlist the assistance of our computer overlords to select the winner. I’ll simply compile a numbered list of all entrants and then ask Siri, Google, or Alexa to give me a random number between x and y. Q: Is this rigged? A: No, just trying to do something nice. Have some faith in humanity, will you? Q: All the cool kids at my school keep talking about “astronomical units.” What are those? A: Still with the random unrelated questions, huh? Fine, it’s the average distance between the Earth and the Sun, about 150 million kilometers, or 93 million miles. Q: Do beavers mate for life? A: Yes. Okay that’s it, no more questions. Good luck everybody!
  6. Thanks to everybody who entered. 179 people participated in the event, and the infallible Google has selected @Angel as the winner with its random number generator. Congratulations! I'll be sending you your PSN code in a private message soon. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
  7. Last time I plan on bumping this: There are two days left to vote in the Highly Scientific Poll and enter the giveaway. The deadline to vote is Saturday December 7 at 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time. I'll announce the winner either late that night or sometime on Sunday. Good luck everyone!
  8. Wow, this is one tight race between Craig T. and Steve. Who Let the Dogs Out and Baby's Day Out are running away with their categories.
  9. #36 - Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection "Platinuminary" For me this was a nice mix of nostalgia and new experiences, as I had previously played maybe 25% of the games included with this collection. I never owned a Genesis/Mega Drive when I was a kid (I was a Nintendo fanboy through and through in the 80's and early 90's), so most of these games were new to me. A friend of mine owned a Genesis (we once traded systems for about a month so I could play his Genesis games and he could play my SNES games), and his game collection made up my entire Genesis gaming experience until now. Of the games new to me, some were really fun (Decap Attack, the Vectorman games), some were meh (ESWAT, Ristar), and a couple were absolutely awful (holy shit Flicky, you are one terrible game). Trophy wise this was a pretty simple list to work through, with Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine providing the biggest challenge. The long term value in this collection for me will be that I can finally play through all of the Phantasy Star games. Well, theoretically anyways, provided I actually find or make time to play those games amidst the backlog. But hey, at least the option's there now.
  10. All of the PS4 games are downloadable. The differences you see between browsing "PS4" and "Downloadable" games is the Downloadable section includes both the PS4 and PS2 games.
  11. I don't think the DLC is included, although I really didn't look into it.
  12. Yes, somebody remembers Coach! I thought for sure there would be some Incredibles comments by now. I'd love to give you some reputation, but it seems I've hit my limit for the day. I'll get back to you...
  13. Good catch, I changed it just to be on the safe side.
  14. After participating in @Beyondthegrave07's trophy hunting day and seeing how well this site's community came together to count trophies for that event and giveaway, I decided to do a small giveaway of my own for the holiday season. Nothing fancy or complicated here, just a chance to win a $20 PSN code! Since I liked Beyondthegrave07's formatting for entering his event, I decided to blatantly copy his general format here (with his permission), so credit and thanks to him for that! How do you enter the contest? Read this fun and exciting FAQ to find out! Q: How do I sign up and when is the sign-up deadline? A: Vote in the highly scientific poll. That's it! You must vote by the deadline of December 7, 2019! The deadline is firm, so make sure to cast your votes by December 7, 2019. Also make note that U.S. Eastern Time will be the enforced time zone, so be sure to vote by 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time on December 7, 2019!

You can always make a U.S. alt account to use the code (you may have one already), or feel free to trade it on your own for a code from a different region. Big games that are a bit older frequently go on sale for $10 or less, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding something fun to use the code on. Q: How will you choose the winner? A: Nothing complicated, although I will enlist the assistance of our computer overlords to select the winner. I’ll simply compile a numbered list of all entrants and then ask Siri, Google, or Alexa to give me a random number between x and y. Q: Is this rigged? A: No, just trying to do something nice. Have some faith in humanity, will you? Q: What’s a parsec? A: A parsec is unit of length used to measure large distances. It’s equal to approximately 3.26 light years. The name parsec comes from parallax of one arcsecond. Q: What is the tallest tree ever recorded? A: Wow, you guys sure ask some weird unrelated questions in your giveaway FAQ’s. It’s a California Redwood named Hyperion, which is 379.7 feet (115.7 m) tall. Good luck everybody! Edit: The event is over and we have a winner: Congratulations @Angel! The Google random number generator has smiled upon you this evening.
  15. #35 - Resogun "I came, I saw, I blew stuff up" So yeah, I'm pretty late to the party with this one, as I imagine most people played this way back when it was a launch title for the PS4 and included with PS+. The way I play games means I'm late to the party with most of the games I play, so nothing new for me. Overall a pretty damn good time. Usually I'm just decent at twin stick shooters, but I overcame the learning curve with this game rather quickly. I won't be playing any of the DLC though, too many other games to play, especially at Christmastime. As a side note, this is the first game I've platinumed with my PS Now subscription.
