I couldn't have even told you that, haha.  My gf's kids are too old.

Not Ebay here, Amazon 3rd party actually incase anyone has any experience...

I bought something, seller contacted me requesting I cancel the order because he doesn't have it in stock.  OK, I'm fine with you not having it in stock, however, the item is still posted and went up (though very slightly). 

Alright, so that's sort of annoying, but again, why is the 3rd party seller asking that I cancel the sale?  Can't he?  And if I refuse to cancel the order, what's up then?

Which, I have sort of done that already and asked Amazon who contacted him and told him to sell the product to me...  But I mean if he doesn't have it honestly, then what?  Amazon Marketplace is a weird place.  Just wondered if anyone else ever ran into a hassle on it.  I never have till tonight.

In Ebay news, and this happened and I let it go, but I made an offer on something which had a make offer listing on it.  His BIN was like $10, I offered $5.  He writes back to me "There's XYZ in the lot, I think $10 is a fair price"...  OOOOOK then, but why did you have a make offer listing then?  I didn't even bother replying and just made a counter offer of even less to piss him off.  ::)

Yeah, he's the black guy with dreads.  Comic character if I'm not mistaken, but then again so was 4th Rusty.

I'd wait it out, look around at sales and see what's what.

The PS4 is a good system, and the X-Box One is a good system.  I'd say the things like controller feel, exclusive games (this is getting fewer and fewer though, but obviously some games are still exclusive to a system), and features each system provide. 

I've got the X-Box One and was pleased I made the purchase at the time, but was even happier when they announced they were putting through Backwards Compatibility to play 360 games (select ones, library will expand as time goes on).  If you didn't own a 360 though, obviously that matters a lot less to you I'd think.

It's all in the details really, as to what you prefer Dave.  I wish I had more time to game, and of late I've had a difficult time gaming at all because of my eyes and things, but I still rip into my first game for it (Titanfall) any time I can, and Battlefront looks pretty cool for any console...  If not a tad frustrating (as all FPS's have become, lol.  hell to get old).  I'd imagine there are some good deals on consoles coming this holiday like Bill linked you to.  I got one on the One last year on Black Friday-Monday.

Guys, what's all this about a new Star War?

I'm kinda with Bill...  I didn't mind Morgan having a lot of focus, just would've liked some of that 1.5 hour episode showing something related to the previous episode.

BTW I also thought that was Heath at the gate, and I also think saving a Wolf will wind up in someone dead.  He said "children".  So I'm guessing old Bowl cut or Judith are toast.

Acid Rain updated with a look at the Laurel Worker... and his bulging package.  :-X

The box he comes in apparently is a functional part of the toy, acting as a big ass piece of cargo for the mech to pick up and...  well...  set down somewhere.

This is like the ASP-7 droid on roids.  No wonder I love it.  :P (Cable and Jim would get that.)

I was wondering how she got there too and just hung out.  Perhaps she was there doing her own investigation, and chance/coincidence?  Perhaps after the Rebels left with the Clones, she found some clues to make her want to investigate this base?  She may just be good at putting some kind of clues together compared to the other Inquisitor.  She seemed sort of superior to him.  They seem almost like the anti-Rebels...  She's the Hera of her group perhaps, and the other one was their Zeb in a way.

I feel like the show wastes so much time with sillier **** when this could've definitely been tied together better, haha.

Man I want a scaled Phantom now.  I want a scale Ghost too, but the Phantom's a much more practical design.  I could see drawing that up actually, and making a workable version with a 3D printer.  It's fairly simplistic design would lend itself well to that kind of thing.

I think that's a definite possibility, like Pong Krell had he not croaked...  I just didn't think she looked like who I think you were hinting at?

I thought Ventress could possibly turn up as an Inquisitor, or someone they attempt to lure in anyway in some story arc at some point, but she'd also sort of be an untidy loose end too, for Poopa Pappa Palpatine so I'd think he wouldn't like that.  He seemed to like things to be tidy.

Then again, Mas Ameda...  so who knows. 

I'd kind of dig seeing what he's up to, btw.  Ameda knows a lot about Palpatine.  He's there to witness some pretty big stuff, and just meanders off.  He's been mentioned by LFL things that he's still around.  Wonder what he's doing, and what his role is now.

I didn't think it looks like who you're talking about, but who knows.

I thought that was a pretty good episode last night though.  Cool atmosphere, a little spooky, kinda halloweenish.  I liked seeing the old hospital station, and find it interesting old stations just go by the wayside...  Kind of broadens how big a galactic war would be...  That whole working stations would just get abandoned like that.  I find that kind of minutia interesting.  Like when Vietnam was ending how hardware was just dumped overboard, and this past week German halftracks from world war II were pulled from a river in Poland.

It's interesting the station still had atmosphere, but lacked heat and electricity to power much but basic atmosphere it seemed.  Weird.  Also weird the doors opened, but again no power to instruments and such. 

Anyway, good episode I thought.  I dug it. :)

I enjoyed the Beta well enough, but honestly it didn't feel any better as far as FPS games go than really anything else out there like Titanfall, HALO or COD.  If anything it had a lil too much COD feeling to it where, unless you play COD religiously and without much of a life, be prepared for 12 y/o's to own you all day long.  :D  Visually it's stunning but most games are so I'm not swayed there.  It'll be the balance of the gameplay, to me, that makes me like it or love it.  I liked the Beta, but wasn't blown away.  Frankly it was annoying at times.

Titanfall puts a better balance in gameplay I've found, and wish more games tried to be that way.  Even online, you can get somewhere without feeling like you're only alive for a few seconds after each respawn. :)

I'm pretty sure Disney didn't forefeit any rights to anything Star Wars to Cartoon Network.  I'd like seeing that too really.

Yeah the show's not deep enough to delve into military tactics, even on a rudimentary level, but 3 walkers dropped in, no air support save for one TIE Fighter (wtf  ???), no flank support for the walkers, no troopers in the walkers to deploy, no speeders (bikes or otherwise)...  nada.  It's just a cartoon, a kid's show, but it's that kind of simplicity that probably makes me less into it.

Again, loved the walkers, that McQ design was pretty slick with the head hatch, the ball shaped front guns and stuff.  I kind of just ignore the silliness of their deployment...  They deployed at Hoth a distance away for a reason.  Here, they just drop out of sight then (very slowly) plod along to wherever they were to be originally.

I just like seeing new(ish) vehicle designs...  Hell, even computers and boxes get my creative juices flowing as to things you can do with that stuff.  :)

This arc bored me though, I'll be honest.  It was a letdown from the premier.  Just me though, a 38 y/o dude watching it by himself.  I get who it's for, I just don't care and miss the quality TCW episodes we could sometimes get.
