Although Borderlands is a big game for us gamers, IMO publisher 2KGames and especially developer Gearbox are smaller third-party devs (relatively speaking). Thus, there aren't much deals on this game because a lot of costs have to be recouped - especially since the devs decided to take 8-10 months longer to develop the cell-shaded art-style we enjoy. They are taking a big risk with this title... i honestly hope it does well because the premise of the game is awesome (4-player coop, RPG lootfest).

PC version is pushed back.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

I'm sure that means the 1, 2, or 3 disc sets for WWE DVD's, but if there's an employee who believes the Royal Rumble Anthology should only be $4.99 I will take it.

50% off any NDS or Wii game with purchase of Bakugan Battle Brawlers


So if I buy BBB for DS at $29.99 I can get a Wii Fit Plus w/ board for $50?

TRU will never have a game special for a game they won't even print the box art in the ads or website for. They won't even sell Demon Souls...do you think Geoffry can sell Demon Souls?

"hi, yes I'm here to buy some Demon Souls?"

bwahahaha.

This is such a fail of an ad. Thanks for the stuff OP, but I have to say I am disappoited with how these ads have been. I really think, and people say I'm crazy, that no more solid deals will happen until Black Friday.

Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

I believe it's any of the wrestling figures carried in store.

The only exclusion in the ad is it won't work with the BBB in the DSi bundle. So I would have to say it should work. If not, you can argue it since the ad says ANY game.

borderlands isnt really a popular game to be having a gift card to come with it. TRU only put GCs to games like Halo and Call of Duty since they know everyone and will buy those.

sometimes we are graced with a linked with the ad from an image hosting site, or a complete PDF, it's rather hit and miss I guess a) if the OP wants to take the time to do it or b) someone was able to get their hands on a copy..

other than that, sorry, I can't help you, this is the best place I know to see ads early when they have 'em, but the text only posts work for me, as they rarely are incorrect.

i'm not exactly suggesting you go there since they're pretty terrible, but it's on SlickDeals.

you could always do what I do.. about 80% of my posts there are sarcastic and often condescending. makes it kind of bearable

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

No Borderlands deal?
Still getting it at TRU though, because I still have that $30 GC that came with Batman.

Lips: Number One Hits>>>>>$59.99 (Includes Wireless Microphone)

Is that "Microphone" as in ONLY one??? That would be seriously lame if they couldn't even front you two of them in the bundle anymore. Now that you can use it for Rock Band 2, MS took the liberty of selling them separately for $50 a pop rather than the old Lips bundle with 2 mics for $30.

Or if it includes Best Buy's exclusive versions of the Eddie Guerrero and Edge DVDs.

I'll pick up SvR 2010 and the Best of Smackdown DVD (assuming I can't get one of the more expensive sets). That $10 PPV cash may come in handy too. Thanks OP!

Nice deal for the wwe dvd for $5 with purchase of svr2010. I have all the wrestler individual 2 and 3 disc sets except for the Mr. perfect one. I will more than likley get that for my $5 dvd if I can find it. Though.if someone really is able to get a royal Rumble anthology, Summerslam anthology, or Wrestlemania anthology for $5.I may reconsider.

I've been waiting for them to clearance out the Edge one like they did with Michaels, Mysterio, and Cena, but no luck yet. may have to take advantage of this.

so many possibilities for ridiculously good deals, I don't know what to go with. of course they probably won't be included, but I can hope

Very disappointing not seeing a GC attached to Borderlands but I doubt I have the patience to wait until MW2's release to use my $20 ODST card. I just hope MW2 comes with one so I can use it for points or DJ Hero.

Ugh @ 30 day life span of TRU GCs & Mass Effect 2's 2010 1st Quarter release date. ;\

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.
