Best of Amazon – July 31st

Shop, Save, Support Laser Time, and win yourself a $20 Amazon gift card!

Having a weird week, so I’m gonna make this short and sweet. There are only two releases that matter, but by gum, they matter dearly! Still giving away a $20 gift card in the comments, so… you know what to do, right?


Mystery Science Theater 3000 XXIV
So glad these keep on coming out with such quality and consistency. Sure the MST3K Gamera collection already did the impossible in finally getting those hard-to-clear movies out on DVD, but this one carries on that tradtion with even more goofy, Sandy Frank goodies from Japan: Fugitive Alien x2! Additionally, there’s a bonus feature entitled “Sandy Frank Speaks” and while I have absolutely no clue what that means, I’m pissing my pants to find out. Oh god, and let’s not forget the stunningly diverse other movies in this set. You’ve got the no-shit, gorgeous Sword and the Dragon as well as the Samson Vs The Vampire Women starring a South of The Border luchador hero. From Japan to Russia to Mexico, this MST set is filled more exotic schlock than I can recall ever seeing before. Of course I’m gonna buy it, but you should too before this happens.


Kingdom Hearts 3DS Dream Drop Distance
Look, I’m not exactly championing yet another portable KH offshoot instead of a full fledged PART THREE. But not only does it look like we’ll never, ever get that, it’s beginning to look more and more as if Kingdom Hearts III wouldn’t even resemble the games it’s following up… does that make sense? So, perhaps a recognizable life on handhelds is just as good as the drastic, next-gen departure (which again, we’ll probably never see.) And I hear good things about KH: 3DS (get it?!?!) It brings in the same team and gameplay additions I liked in Birth By Sleep, and finally sees the return characters introduced in The World Ends With You. It’s also got Pinocchio levels! Not even sure why I’m excited by that, but I am!

  1. The MST3K deal looks awesome and tempting to buy. I think the guys behind MST3K are very similar to Chris and everyone from Lasertime. After one show ended (MST3K and Talkradar) both groups decided to not give up on what they do best and make another similar show (Rifftrax and Lasertime).

  2. “Pre-order for a set of three ‘DOA Devils’ black bunny swimsuits for Christie, Tina, and Ayane” oh DOA never change.

  3. OMG, Snoop Dog stage pre-order bonus?!?!? Why haven’t I bought TTT2 yet? Wait, It’s because Tekken is terrible after 3.

  4. I really do think you guys are going to get me into comic books, whether I want to start buying them or not.

    Also, Kingdom Hearts 3D looks pretty neat! My friend got it today and it seems like an actually fully-fledged 3DS game made by a third-party. Who would have guessed? It’s even got a little pet partner you can create to adventure with you.

  5. Assassin’s Creed has been preorderd twice now by me. once through amazon to support lasertime network and once through gamestop to get the exclusive dlc.

  6. I can’t wait to not care about Kingdom Hearts! On another note, Chris, beloved, please put in an Amazon.ca link in. I wish to spread my money to you, but you just won’t let me! If not I’ll start a petition thread and start a civil war!

  7. I regrettably have never seen MST, but it sounds awesome and after all of the praise Chris has given it I think it’s time to change that.

  8. I’m ashamed, I bought All Star Superman and I forgot to link to amazon from laser time. But I donated a few dollars to make up for it.

  9. Looking to cop dat game, The Last Story. Looks great and just looking forward to playing another game from Sakaguchi!

  10. Best of luck to you in the future, Chris. I’ll follow anyone from the glory days of GamesRadar/TalkRadar wherever you go.

  11. Hmmm, never actually seen MST3000,but after all the praise it’s received on Talkradar I’m gonna have to definitely check this out. Thanks Chris!

  12. Not to be mean but could you put releases dates next to the pre-order stuff im really confused on whether or not kingdom hearts released already.

  13. I know why I’m excited for a Pinocchio level. Monstro in KH1 could have told us about Pinocchio, but instead it was hijacked my Riku declaring his new allegiance to the darkness.

  14. im not that broke but i kinda spent to much money catching up on the walking dead… so this would be cool but i dont need it really…

  15. Listening to old TalkRadar and I discovered I never bought Rob Smith’s book. So when I get some more cash I am going to support Lasertime and Rob Smith.

  16. For the sake of LaserTime, I might un- and then re-pre-order The Last Story. Anybody in the UK have anything good to say about it?

  17. What is this Sleeping Dogs game, i see it advertised everywhere but i have no idea what it is. Also the Cape Crisis recommended comics are really helping me get into comics, great suggestions guys!

  18. MST3K looks really good.. And just an idea, but have you considered making the the color of the game titles alternate? It’s hard to scroll through and see what’s there when it’s all the same shade of blue. I love you guys!
