The Nintendo Pre-Order Panic

For some fans, the Nintendo Direct announcements only meant loads of disappointment, as the itchy fingers of scalpers clicked away on pre-orders listed on most retail websites, leaving out some without anything at all. If you're one of the unlucky ones, fret not, Christmas can still be magical! There's still a chance to avoid paying the exorbitant prices asked by these scalpers for your copies of Megaman Legacy Collector's Edition, Twilight Princess HD CE, and Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition 3DS.




Apparently, Play-Asia has secured allocations for its members.

Before ending this post, it seems like some people have been scouring the web for the new TAC4 by HORI to play first person shooters (FPS) on the Playstation Network with their friends. Unfortunately, Amazon isn't carrying it yet and the eBay listings are still on the pricey side. The only way to retain PC FPS gaming skills on console (with the keyboard and mouse) for Battlefront, Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty is to use peripherals like the TAC for the PS4.

Buuuut...if you're really insistent on buying Stateside through the familiar Big 3, i.e. Amazon, BestBuy and Gamestop, especially when Black Friday's just around the corner and Cyber Monday too, Nowinstock is a brilliant website to use in monitoring pre-order inventories online.

Game Chasers Season 3 on Indiegogo

Just in time, as so many things have preoccupied me of late! They're back, the Game Chasers crew are developing a new DVD edition (standard and collector's edition sets)!





This is a documentation of hobbyist activities, done with style. While we all have our hobbies to preoccupy ourselves with (at home or outside) and captivate our imaginations during idle time, day dreaming moments or just to carry us through the mind numbing routines of the day at work, there's something about taking things to a whole new level that's so admirable, and enviable too, for people who take risks with their hobbies.

Here were their first two editions

As for hobbyist updates, Call of Duty Black Ops 3 just got released. I personally haven't been a fan of this franchise after MW2 and after getting back in touch with my Battlefield roots, but this is the most highlighted release as of late.

Meanwhile, a little known game called Fallout 4 just got released. I recently sold my Fallout 4 Pipboy edition preorder just because it was for the PC. While I'm a heavy advocate of PC gaming, it's only for FPS. I put Fallout in the Real Time Strategy-slash-turn based RPG category and so really wanted to get my hands on a PS4 Pipboy set.

And if you've also been disconnected from the world, The Force Awakens is coming and before that Battlefront 3, which somehow is closer to home since it was developed by DICE, the guys who developed the last 3 installments of the Battlefield franchise.
