It's funny how they keep churning out all these items, RIGS and gold generators, but the only way people can afford any of it is if they're heavy Gaia Cash users or win it big at the occasional gold generator they saved up for. I'm not even surprised that they decided to start selling season passes just so people can get all the luxury items in one go.
These days you're lucky if you even see any of the old VGD regulars posting. I know a lot of them that are inactive now or at least semi-inactive. You still get people like Nate/The DBZ guy logging on multiple accounts (since he keeps getting banned) complaining about the VGD not talking about Japanese games or anything else other than Triple A/Indie titles. He'd rather complain about the current state of Gaia/VGD instead of trying his own hand at making a worthwhile thread. It's funny how irony works out in the end.
Ah, I see. I researched in depth to which phone I wanted to get. I saw so many that it kind of got confusing in the end. I was interested in getting a Nexus 5 on Google's Project Fi service since they give you an account credit for whatever left over data you have at the end of the month, but I ended up finding out that they don't have service where I'm at. Luckily I was able to find a sale on my current phone for $200 (originally $300) instead of dropping down $600 - $700 on the newest high-end smartphone. My phone is also the unlocked version so I can pretty much switch between carriers, though I'm currently under my mom's plan because I have to finance the phone through her. I don't have a credit score to speak of so I couldn't do it by myself. It's great for everything I need to do with it though. Why my brother felt the need to spend so much to get an LG G4 is beyond me. There's plenty of low-end or mid-range phones out there that are more than viable.
