Thanks, I think I'll pick up Gears 3 soon.



Yes, I think you would. There is even a little movie on the disc that summarizes previous events in the series.

The controls are different than what you would be used to in say--an FPS. Much slower paced. Your actions/movements must be deliberate. That's what I really like about the game.

Got mine emailed to me finally by BB this morning - had it sold on ebay for $20 within 10 minutes. Plus already beat (never been a big Gear MP fan) and sold the game to a buddy for $50 and got $20 credit with it. All and all, a fun week with gears.

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 22 September 2011 - 09:48 PM

Agreed. I among many others have been doing this for years. Sold my Baird code for $35 and my Adam Fenix code for $30 this time. Other stuff I've sold in the past includes the Gears 2 gold weapons codes (Hammerburst and Lancer), Little Big Planet pre-order costumes, Uncharted 2 gold weapons, ect. I've offset the cost of several of my games this generation using that method.


Oh, the Gold Lancer... because of you, the Hammerburst, and the Centaur tank from BB I think I was paid $10 for the LE of GOW2.

Am I supposed to get my Savage Kantus code emailed to me or something? I heard you were supposed to wait 2 days after your purchase from amazon.


You should have gotten it by now. For some reason I got mine at 3AM on 9/20 (release day)... check your junk mail?
CAG: Where it doesn't matter how good or how cheap a game is, but games would only be "worth buying" to people if only they were $10 cheaper.

If purchased from amazon contact customer service. I did and they emailed me the code directly.

In other news..... I ordered a journeys end marcus fenix figure from gamestop and i got it today in the mail and its the Toys R Us double pack of Fenix and Locust, it even has the TRU sticker on the front. WTF. Apparently this is bigger mess up than just my order too, because i see people posting about this on the epic forums.


Does it look like this one?

I thought I saw the TRU one in store a week ago, and I thought it was slightly different, but maybe I was wrong. Still, $15 for 2 Gears figures is a decent price.

Yeah its that one, but mine actually has the silver TRU sticker in the middle. LOL. Personally i would rather have the correct figure, even though getting this pack for half price is nice. This is what the figure should look like.

Wow, yeah, that's a HUGE snafu. I don't know how you could confuse a 2 pack for a single figure.

That Marcus looks pretty sweet. I wonder if it will end up in stores.

So much for the exclusive Marcus figure. I already bought the 2 pack of figures and pre-ordered the Gamestop figure the day it was available for pre-order. They really need to fix this snafu and deliver the correct figure. I guess my new 2 pack will arrive tomorrow. Really, how can you sell toys that are exclusive to TRU at Gamestop? I hope it works out for everyone that bought one.

I posted it in the BB 5/$100 pre-order thread, but if you haven't yet I would post in this thread on the BB forums about your missing Baird code:

http://forums.bestbu...ion/td-p/328560

After they gave me the run around for weeks via email on my missing Madden 12 code I posted there and they PM'd me both my Baird and Madden codes yesterday.


:bow:

I sent a PM to Mariel...she said she's about a day behind on getting the codes to people.

Thank you!


Just to update everyone here that hasn't gotten one. This is definitely the easy way to get one. Got my code PM'd this morning.

Thank you again GLOCKGLOCK!!!

Got my Savage Grenadier Elite code from Walmart along with the game today too. I really want to use it but it's still fetching ~$35 at eBay...I think I might have to sell it. :bomb:

I know $100 is too much for me to blow on that Retro Lancer, but it doesn't stop me from wanting it. I was able to keep myself rational and not buy the Gears 2 Lancer, so hopefully I can do that again.

Picked up somebody's Retro Lancer Replica preorder at Gamestop. Had to do it at the local GS at my work though. All my coworkers gave me a weird ass look watching me lug that Lancer around the office. LOL

I'd personally rather have these than the other one that was listed, not sure why everyone prefers that one. hoping this comes back in stock online


and I just sold off the Gears of War 3 limited edition contents for $60, and have listed the commando dom code at $20, if that sells I'll essentially have gotten Gears 3 for free. :)

I think that a thread specific to Gears 3 might be good...even if temporary. Maybe a mod *wink wink nudge nudge* can create one on trade forum that's strictly to trade skin for skin, and nothing else. ;)

ok so I ordered a copy from amazon for a friend (i have prime) and another buddy of mine wants gears from amazon too.

My question is this, it says there is a limit of 1 per household for the $20 promo credit but it still shows up at the top of the checkout page that my purchase qualifies for it. Will I still get it even though this would be my second gears purchase w/ them under the same account?

So I noticed last night that Walmart still was offering the $20 e gift card for the Gears of War 3 controller bundle. So I decided to purchase it. I just noticed this on my bill.

Xbox 360 Gears of War 3 Wireless Controller (Xbox 360) 1 Ready for pickup starting
Thu., Oct 6 $40.00

Gears of War 3 w/ Bonus* In-Game Content (Xbox 360)
(Gears of War 3 w/ Bonus* In-Game Content (Xbox 360)) 1 Ready for pickup starting
Thu., Oct 6 $59.00

No mention of the e gift card in there. Did they just not update their website when I placed the order or am I totally screwed out of the gift card?

Not sure, on my order it was

Controller - 40
Game - 40
Gift card - 20

But then again that was pre order when some of the items were not ready to ship? I believe i got my gift card right away, so if you havent gotten it in 24-48 hours then id worry.

The USPS tracking system is crap. It won't update until maybe tonight, more than likely not until Monday.
