I'm considering buying Madden and getting either LP2 or DA:O then selling Madden.

Went to customer service at my local BB and asked if they'd PM the TRU $15 giftcard, figuring with the 500 bonus points + gamer zone points this would be the best deal. Sure enough they did although the manager did say if I was taking advantage of the half price promo she wouldn't (which I wasn't), so with picking up Madden 11 and a $39.99 PS3 DJ Hero set w/ extra turntable, it was a pretty good morning.

Been wanting Alan Wake for a while but trying to remain disciplined due to my gaming backlog. However, I just finished school (unless I get a MBA) and received a $50 GC for Best Buy. The stars aligned with the release of Madden 11. It is as though fate was pushing me to buy Madden and Alan Wake. So I relented and placed the online pre-order yesterday. Madden 11 for $10 (after GC) + Alan Wake for $20 and 500 Reward Zone points (essentially $10 back) is a sweet deal for one day.

Off to play for hours.

The gamer club is set up for members so that every $150 they spend on video games, on top of their regular point accumulation for the Reward Zone program, nets them a $10 certificate. My purchase today pushed me over that $150 limit.

Damn... didn't expect such good deals from Kmart! That $40 Super Mario Galaxy 2 with $20 gaming coupon looks delicious, but I don't know...

EDIT: Aw, that's the first one. Still a good deal, but I've owned and beaten that one. But if I can get the $20 coupon and the points card both with Galaxy 2, that could justify me purchasing it there instead of Amazon.

the K-Mart coupon is $20 off any EA GAME- not any game. I picked it up today.


Yeah, this is true - at least that's what it says on the slip. Maybe it will scan for any game (not sure how it knows the difference between EA published games and not) but it says for EA games only.

The madden demo was a major turn off. All they did was incorporate the ask madden feature into a more pro-dominant role for noobs and casual fans.

And might I add the game engine for the next gen has been lack luster, unexciting atmosphere, laggy menus, and general massive drop in both presentation and game play overall. Madden 05 was the best in the series..it's been massively downhill since.


Agree with everything you said. I started boycotting madden every other year after the horrible/worst in recent series Madden 2008. I bought 2010 with the SI deal last year, so I won't be buying 2011.

EA has the biggest scam going, force releasing various series every year. Why not release a new quality game, or even implement a trade in system where you get max value to upgrade to the newer version?

Hey guys, not to be OT, but I gotta buy a new notebook for my boss. Saw that in the Best Buy ad you can get Office 2010 for $99 w/ the purchase of a 'PC'..does anyone think they will give me any guff b/c I'm purchasing a notebook? can an argument be made that a notebook is still inherently a PC? Or I wonder if it will simply work with no hassle..(oh and I know that paying $100 for Office might not be the CAG way, but it's not my money :lol:)

Said copy of Office will likely Office 2010 Home and Student, which would be $30 or $40 off from its normal MSRP.

Home & Student gives you Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote, so if you need Outlook, you'd need to upgrade to Home and Business, which includes Outlook:

Even if it's an Apple laptop, it's still a PC by the correct "general" term, though I'm sure you mean a Windows PC specifically.

Yeah I did mean a Windows PC, but didn't want them to stick me with "that's only good on desktops." but the deal did work. And then they scanned on some Agent Protection and AV Disk, which packaged promo off the price. Hopefully I didn't get 'conned' into anything. I stated I only wanted to walk out with the laptop box, office card and a mouse, but alas, it doesn't always go as planned.

Blur is not worth paying full price even with the gift card. Unless of course, you missed out on the best buy promotion awhile back. I got mine for about $13 and traded it in 2 days later for double. I felt it wasn't worth keeping and it got to be repetitive. What if you get them to price match dj hero (or even Blur) would you still qualify for the gift card(s)?

Since I didn't see a Sunday Video Game Deals thread starting the 15th, let me just remind those who have been on the fence about :ps3:GTA: Episodes From Liberty City that TODAY is the LAST DAY you can use the $20 off Best Buy Reward Zone Gamer's Club coupon towards the game to get it for $19.99.

That's 50% off MSRP.

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