Might be in for Fallout Collection and GTA Classics.

Just a heads up that the original GTA and GTA2 (but not the GTA London Expansion pack) are free downloads from Rockstar Classics

Picked up Zoids & Supreme Commander, had all the newer stuff listed already. Some good deals though. Wish the Watchmen PS3 version would've had the same sale price.

It's been explained that these sales probably couldn't be so good, if they had free shipping, too.


Some people just have an irrational need to see those two magic words "free shipping" regardless of the final price. I think that some people on here would be more inclined to buy a game for $10 with free shipping than the same game for $5 with $3 shipping in a blind comparison.

No, we just prefer not to deal with 'hidden fees' at the checkout. Case-in-point, PoP is cheaper at Newegg by a dollar because of the $3 shipping (they ship by media mail too, so the cost is heavily padded to offset sale prices; good marketing move by them).

I am fine with paying shipping but not when companies rip me off just because I live in Hawaii. Gogamer charged me extra for shipping to Hawaii when it's not really needed now I am not saying it's just them, plenty of other retailers take advantage of it just because we are an ocean away. However I mailed stuff to and from Hawaii all the time and shipping doesn't cost more than 20-30 cents than shipping from mainland to mainland. Yet we get stuck with a huge fee >_>, this is why I love shopping at Amazon since they don't discriminate against the 50th state >_> altho prime isn't elligible here but FSSS is.

First off I want to thank Go Gamer for their great service.

Despite them not shipping my Play and Charge kit 1 month and 13 days after I ordered it, they canceled it and issued me a refund without a hassle. You guys bring me great deals and I hope to buy from you in the future.

The shipping costs are not so much 'hidden' as variable.
If you just bought the one game - yes. Shop with Newegg and save the dollar. I bought three games, so I saved an amazing 9 cents...but got two other games Newegg didn't have a deal on.

Just an FYI there are some issues with running Mirrors Edge on 64-bit Vista, posted earlier in the thread by me. There doesn't seem to be a clear solution either which sucks.

I used the $3 shipping option to get Mirrors Edge from their sale last weekend and it shipped via USPS first class mail w/tracking. I hate media mail since it always seems to take 2 weeks to get to me; glad I haven't had to use it at either Newegg or GoGamer. I wish GoGamer shipping was free like Newegg (I remember ordering Crackdown w/free shipping from them and it only took a couple days to get here) but still $8.90 shipped for Mirror's Edge is a damn good deal in my books; especially when it takes less than a week to get here.

Just an FYI there are some issues with running Mirrors Edge on 64-bit Vista, posted earlier in the thread by me. There doesn't seem to be a clear solution either which sucks.


I saw you can't get it to launch; any other issues? I just played an hour of it (Vista x64 as well) and it worked fine so far. Curious if I should expect some random crashes or other oddities if there are issues with Vista 64.

That sux for you on shipping, but at least you don't need to pay $1o bucks for parking when you go to the beach. You just walk outside. LOL.. JK...

You think that shipping is a "hidden fee"?

Seriously, get out.

There's no telling how much shipping will cost until you're at the checkout screen. That to me is a hidden fee.

Wow really?
I'll do that instead, I love Newegg :-P

Edit: meh, I just bought Mirror's Edge for $6 shipped on Newegg
Prince of Persia looks ok, but I've got a big enough backlog to play through lol

For anyone interested in Mirror's Edge, it's now $5.99 at Newegg with free shipping.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

It should work on any NCSoft game, so you should be fine. I ordered 2 copies already myself.

Wow, that's a stupid definition of "hidden fee." If it's clearly disclosed at checkout, then it's not exactly hidden, is it?
