pretty damn good deal

now I just have to call them since they already shipped my copy at the old $19.79 price point :bomb:

edit: note for anyone else who already ordered it and had it shipped, they are required to adjust the price for you due to the Pre-order Price Guarantee

personally I just don't like waiting for them to do it automatically nor really trust them to either, but the guide doesn't officially release until tomorrow

better than when they dropped the Dragon Age Collector's Guide price the day of release and I had to explain to the lady that their guarantee covered through the end of release day

I'll give them until the afternoon, and as a precaution I took a screenshot of the $17.99 price

I was debating on getting one when I saw IGN is going to have their guide up tomorrow.

In your opinions is this worth the money or just go with the online guide?

Went ahead and order this with my free Prime membership! Thanks, OP!

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

There really isnt much to say until the forums have picked apart the guide and determined if its solid or an incomplete mess. I usually go for non-penny guides for games I plan to sink a lot of time into.

I have collectors edition guide for DA and love it. I like having a resource right there (i have a laptop but I like a nice hardcover book). I ordered my ME2 collector's guide for $14.79 as a quick pick deal.

That's a good point...it's nice having something right there when you need it. Plus it might make some good toilet material.

I ordered one but don't expect to get much use out of it. If it's anything like the first ME guide, it's best used as a reference for more obscure details. I've found online guides to be superior for quickly conveying what you have to do at each point in the game without spoilers. The first ME guide was like reading a narrative with charts/maps...

Well I ordered it because I had some gift credit makin this really cheap. Im gettin the CE edition for the game anyway so might as well have the whole CE package. Good toilet reading too. Im also waiting for the price adjustment since I ordered this last week.

I don't know how much I'd want to use the guide itself (maybe for reference for things like Completionist achievement stuff, but otherwise I'd kind of like to at least play through the game on my own), but I'm curious how good all the developer interview stuff is in it.

If the price drops further by the end of the day tomorrow, you're supposed to get that further price reduction.

If the price goes back up before the end of the day tomorrow, you're still supposed to get this price reduction if you ordered it before it dropped Saturday (which is when it dropped, if I remember right).

Screen cap of the price now, plus an email now wouldn't be a bad idea. Don't be surprised if they tell you can't get the price adjusted, since it shipped, and if they do, put this in your email response:

http://www.amazon.co...p/AWT354OR7BM1U

It's the link to the T&C for the Pre-Order Price Guarantee.

Looks like sellers are selling the DragonAge Collectors guide for $60+ now. I imagine this will happen to ME2 also.

Online guides, wikia, GameFAQs are pretty much the reason I've stopped buying guides these days. Don't get me wrong, these strategy guides are usually very thorough, I just feel most of the pertinent info makes it way online pretty quickly, and it's free.

I'm thinking about buying this. Do any of you know if you can add this your ME2 preorder? I preordered ME2 CE a couple months ago. It would be nice to add this to that order so I can get free shipping on it.

Yeah definitely a nice convenience to have it all in a book if your 360 and comp are far enough away. But I'm playing this on PC, so checking a guide is just alt-tabbing out of game, look at guide in Firefox, and alt-tab back in. :D

Did your order ship?

If not, email customer service and give them your order number and the ASIN of the guide
