Don't want to play 50 cent because it's bad or because it's 50 cent?


I'm not a shooter fan and the premise sounds ridiculous. I've never played either game (50 Cent or Lair). But I'm certainly more inclined to try Lair. There are others (ahem-Cheapy-ahem) that can't get enough of every shooter out there and have a higher tolerance for this kind of stuff ;).

Anyway, I really just commented on here so I can keep tabs on other things they may add to the sale - there's nothing for me yet. But for $10 if it is a genre you like and the game isn't totally broken, then go for it!

Warhammer is worth it for $10 if you don't mind learning a good but very unusual control scheme. Graphics aren't that hot either, but very fun game.

How is LAIR post-analog controls? Is it worth the $15?


Is lair good for $15?


Post-patch, Yes.

Don't believe the internet mob mentality in which when the Alpha dog says one game sucks all the inferior breeds follow suit. It's a pretty but mediocre game worth about $15.

I could facepalm 90% of the posters here now so excited about fiddy when their old posts pretty much lambasted the title.

Damn, I JUST bought 50 Cent from Newegg for $14.99 on 11/25. I haven't even received it yet and it's already on sale for $5 cheaper. According to Newegg's FAQ they do not have any price guarantee. :( Oh well.

Shoot newegg a email and explain - I bought my wife a Refurb Zune on Black Friday for $89 and it dropped to $68 the same day - Newegg gave me a refund for the difference.

Also, I snagged two copies of 50Cent - one for me and one for an Xmas gift for dad (He loved Scarface on Xbox...)

Sweet. I been waiting for a drop like this. I liked the 50 cent game. If you are fan then (which I'm not really) there are tons of music videos and stuff that are unlockables which is cool. I rented it for a weekend and beat it once.

Looks like Street Fighter IV Collector Edition Xbox 360 is $49.99 today on NewEgg. Is this edition worth the extra $$$ seeing the great deals on the game alone this week

Dammit, I just bought that headset for 30 dollars. Does anyone know if they have price guarantees?


Just for inquiring minds, I contacted support and they said they normally don't but they would this time (Likely because I've spent quite a pretty penny at Newegg)

I greatly enjoyed TR:U when I played it earlier this year.

It is a damn pretty game and I found it enjoyable to play, I'm not really sure why it wasn't very well received.

The formula is kinda old at this point, but if you go in *wanting* a formula TR game TR:U is a really good one.

Especially at that price!


/snagged 50cent and Jericho for $17
//let my bro's wife know about 50 for $10 so now he has a surprise stocking stuffer for co-op!

Agreed, LAIR, while flawed its no where near the game most of the (cough, cough) people here who have never played it make it out to be. Controls, yes, they are not perfect, but the patch made them better. To me a Huge dragon who turns on a dime sorta sems silly. Controls seem fine to me, but thats Opinion only. I went in really excited about the game, and came away disapointed, not becuase its a bad game, but becuase its only an Average game and I was expecting greatness. Fun yes, learning curve to controling Dragon, yes. $15 may be borderline (i got mine for $20 a long time ago, not unhappy with purchase) this game wont be for everyone. The price of a meal, not to bad for a game IMHO.

Battlemarch, RTS on consoles is never a "good" fit. Bit more a thinking mans RTS then most, hardcore will not be taxed, normal RTS players may find it a bit hard, none RTS players wil hate it.

Tomb raider, fun, but if you played it back in the day or the 5 other versions.... eh...

50- If you like JackA$$ over the top type stuff, this is the game for you. Nothing new, nothing bad, just alot of the same stuff in exagerated "im cooler then you" way. Fun enough. (sorry being an A$$ and thinking its cool isnt my idea fun, but some like it). As far as game play, $10 isnt to bad, nothing new, but not real bad spots either.

Overall, some good deals if you need a cheap game (But there are so many GOOD games out now, Dragon Age, L4D2, etc...)

I have to echo the sentiments regarding 50 Cent BoTS. It's a great game that fell through the cracks of the gaming community. Really fun and over the top all the way to the end, but the end comes much sooner than you think....meaning it's very short. Play it through on the hardest difficulty for the most fun and then play co-op with a buddy online. Definitely worth it at this price!

I also recommend QoS if you're a Bond fan like I am. Again, a very short game, but loads of re-playability with online play and the like. Have fun!

Warhammer is bad IMO. The controls are a mess, the tutorial is a joke, the manual tells you nothing about how to play the game, the graphics are last gen. Save yourself the $10

I actually saw Lair cheaper at other places. I think I will wait though since I was curious and the game is something that I have to wait until I can get it for a better price. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand seems to be a really decent shooter from the reviews. I am not really into games where guys think they are the best thing and over others.

I'm so tempted to buy LAIR for PS3, but reviews for the game are yuck!


I picked up a copy during the B1G1 that Blockbuster had last time and even $5 was $4.99 too much for that game.

But on the upside, Toys R'Us gives $7.50 for it in trade.:D I think it was actually higher than that when I traded my copy in about 2 months ago.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.
