Toys'R'us LEGO Sales Posted by Richard on March 25, 2018 at 05:43 PM CST:
While my local TRU store was offering 10% discounts on the majority of the items for sale, LEGO&reh products were one of a select few discounted by only 5%. If you are a LEGO VIP member, then you get 5% back as coupons later anyway, plus the added bonus of any exclusive monthly freebies. As a result, it's only a good sale if you don't like the freebies LEGO Stores are offering and would rather have the cash in hand than waiting for a future LEGO Store purchase. Your local prices and discounts may vary however, as my store has only just begun it's discounts. Forum link.
Toys"R"Us Closing It's Stores Down Posted by Richard on March 15, 2018 at 07:03 PM CST:
This morning I heard the news that Toys"R"us will be shutting down for good. While I have mixed feelings about their emphasis of the word "suggested" in MSRP, I have more good memories of the chain than bad. It's not all bad I suppose, maybe we will get some discounted LEGO® sets out of it. Forum link.

"Discovery" Aims To Fill The Minecraft VR Gap On PSVR Posted by Richard on November 13, 2017 at 08:21 PM CST:
While Minecraft has VR available for Oculus Rift And Gear VR, it sadly lacks an official version for the Playstaion VR. Last week, a game called "Discovery" launched on the PSVR, for 11.99 USD. I imagine Discovery's developer wanted to bring a Minecraft-like experience to fans who have the PSVR rather than more expensive PC and phone platforms. The game's icon even spoofs Minecraft's, consisting of three very dirt blocks arranged like The Legend Of Zelda's Tri-Force. Forum link.
