Geez.....you know, it's weird. I've been a CAG for years now, and I've seen many GoGamer sales. Not once have I seen anything I really want in one of these sales. So odd. I always see a new "Madness" sale and get excited, and each time I am disappointed. *sigh*

How's Bangai-O on DS? I never played the DC version and the pricepoint seems low enough to bite.

In terms of how it plays, it's just like the Dreamcast version.

The big difference, is that there isn't really any story mode, and is instead 160 random levels. But the real draw, is the level editor. It's absolutely fantastic. You can make pretty much anything you saw in the original game, using this editor, and you can trade levels with friends, et cetera. It's fantastic.

Waste of time? What games are you looking for? We've literally had thousands of titles on sale over the years. Not one has made you bite? Tell me..what type of games do you want to see on sale without us going broke?

Meh, replace "PC games" with "pretty much any game" I paid $50 for FEAR 2 at launch, beat the campaign in 2 days, and haven't touched it since. It's the price you pay for being impatient or just wanting to play X game asap.

Whats all the hate on Gogamer for? They have the best computer game sales ever. I've only been buying from them for 3-4 months but they have excellent service and some great prices on newer games and old games. My only problem with the site is there lackluster console game sales. If you guys don't like any of the games they put on sale then you don't like games at all.

in those cases though, if you dont mind the trouble of doing it, you can list said game on the bay and usually get back most of your money. I do this quite often. Pay $50, get back $42 etc...Console games are especially strong in reselling mostly due to the fact that they are stubborn price droppers. The big titles anyway.

If you beat games fast like that though, just resell it. Its incredible the amount of people that bid up auctions for recently released games to within a few dollars of their full MSRP.

What's the quick consensus on Dawn of War II? I'm not a fan of RTSs, but that's mostly because I feel they all turn into a game of who builds the best base and the most units, and I've heard DoWII is much more like a Diablo RTS...

DoW2 has no base building. Instead you just have one single building you start with and pump out units to capture points around the map which provide resources automatically. With those resources, build more units and upgrade your single building.

It's pretty straightforward and focuses more on battles than base building. It's an alright game, but personally I wish I had waited for this price drop. The matchmaking is iffy and there is a lot to be patched. However, supposedly there is a patch in the works and GFWL certification is holding it up.

In regards to GoGamer overall though, I am not sure either regarding the negative comments. There are some pretty decent deals there. I would bite but the games I want I already own. Bangai-O is definitely worth $13, it's hard but I enjoy it. DoW2 is still a solid deal and more so when it's patched. Plenty of other decent deals there as well.

There are legitimate complaints and then there are these.... Don't pay attention to the whiney complainers. You'll end up expending 90% of your effort on 10% (or less) of your customers.

I've picked up numerous titles from gogamer over the past few years on madness sales, and can safely say that if someone hasn't been able to find even ONE worthwhile title on madness sales, they really ought to expand their gaming horizons.


30 bucks for dow2 = win.

No actually we have had lots of good console deals. Again, what is it you are expecting? What is a good deal to you? Do you see HAWX for 360 anywhere else for lower?

We appreciate the support, but let's no get into a flame war. I do listen to the public so if there is a concept of a great deal I always want to know. We are known more for our PC deals, but since last summer we have really stepped up our console game.

Yeah, it seems that go gamer are their mainly for pc games. If you aren't a big pc gamer, gogamer doesn't offer a multitude of deals. Too bad too, because they are really good for pc games.

I rarely see any good console or handle games on sale from this website. Tons of PC games deals... kinda unfair :)


Maybe you should get into pc gaming, lol. I think gogamer must constantly order pc games in more bulk than most stores. Hey, if that means cheaper pc games, thats great. This is one of those wierd instances where the natural elitism of pc gaming works in our favor.

I've never heard of GoGamer before, but they do have a nice deal here. Too bad my PC's crap, and I only own a PS3. PC deals are awesome, but yes, console deals could use a notch up. Unless there are more games listed not on this thread.

I understand the business pov (a little), but how about getting some big name console titles on there quickly? SF4, RE5, Killzone2, etc etc. I know gameroomdeals or whatever (on this forum as well) has some good and recent console deals, though they sell out too damn fast.

I cheer for you, GoGamer.com~ Even when I'm unlikely to buy old titles like Simpsons and Jericho. And to be brutally honest (pardon me here), I believe people would like to see more A+ titles, not "rated crap" like Jericho. Entirely Console POV, your PC deals rock.

You may have the current lowest price on HAWX right now (by a few cents), but the problem is at least 2 other stores (Amazon, Target) had it at about the same price and days earlier. So any CAG that was interested in HAWX at around $40 would have already gotten it from Amazon or Target. So I'd have to say your console deals are not necessarily bad (any deal is good), they're just not ground breaking or anything to get excited about. They're almost like "me too" deals. I agree with above comments that your PC game deals are very good, though.
