I don't think MoH is horrible by any means. It's nothing that special, but the single player campaign kept my interest at least. Don't bother with the multiplayer though.

I thought the campaign was OK, especially if you can get it for $7.50 or so...decent graphics, and weapons; the scenery could get a little repetitive, though. Never did manage to check out the MP, though...heard it was kind of a camp-fest.

C'mon, it wasn't that bad. I actually enjoyed the campaign. Not great or anything, but definitely enjoyable and worth $10-$20.

There probably isn't much left for me to pick up. I feel like this B1G1 sale is too soon since the last one. We need more time for stuff to sit and drop a bit.

I'm playing through my $20 CE version of SWTFUII and really enjoying it - even for the $20...


I've only had time to get through the first part, but ditto. I like it enough that I'll probably get the 360 version just to have it for both systems.

I'll be picking up SWTFUII as well. It's a game I've been wanting for a while and waiting for it to drop to the 15$ price mark. And now, I can get a free game with it. Not a bad deal. I hope Mafia II drops to 15$ though as that's the price I wanted for that one as well. Maybe I can get both for only 15$ if it does drop. Here's hoping..

I scoped out a couple BBVs tonight to see what they had in their inventory. I was surprised to see some pretty good games in stock today like God of War Collection, Uncharted 2, Ninety Nine Nights 2, Cod 4 (Wii), Mario Strikers (Wii), Lego Harry Potter, Mafia II, Star Wars FU II all for $14.99. Also saw command and conquer 3 for $6.99.

Actually, Mafia II (360) was marked $19.99, but I believe this is one of the $14.99 titles Hawaiiboy posted.

I also checked out the prices on the previously viewed blu rays, but I didn't uncover much more than the drops Hawaiiboy already posted. I noticed Twilight (original) was $9.99 now. Hoosiers dropped to $6.99 (maybe it was already this price, idk). I couldn't find any of those disney blu rays (sleeping beauty, snow white, beauty and the beast) that we all $16.99 during the last sale.

I asked employees that know me at all the stores if "there's a B1G1 videogame sale coming up" and none of them knew anything about it. :-P

Can't wait for Friday! I wish my closest BB's would've not closed down, though, because I'd love to go do a little advanced recon on the selection of some stores. But it would be a HUGE PITA, time-wise, to make the trip twice in a week, with my young son in tow, no less...:-k

How is Medal of Honor?

I think I'm gonna head to my BBV to see what's available.


Medal of Honor is HORRIBLE.

Couldn't disagree more. I won't say that it is amazing, but HORRIBLE, no. SP is fun, there is a better variety in scenery than I thought there would be. You've got desert, small towns, arid, mountainside snow, caves. I found the campaign to be pretty intense due to the singular focus of one area of battle fought over a day or so as opposed to CoD's movie like jumping all over the globe (I like CoD too just for the record), but even on Hard, the initial hardest difficulty, I hardly died and wasn't challenged too much except for a few tough spots. Haven't played much MP, got killed alot since I didn't know the map and there did seem to be more camping, but unfortunately what mp doesn't have alot nowadays. I have several friends who play the mp as a break from CoD or Halo and they like it enough. It's definitely worth 7.50 although a new LE copy gets you a BF3 beta pass.

All this Medal of Honor talk made me want to play the single player. Since I bought it and played a few hours online. And it's not too bad. The online wasn't that bad either, I just rarely play online games so I never got into it.

Definitely worth $7.50

I bought everything I wanted. Maybe I'll look for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II and something else.

I'm always amazed that some don't play MP online. I've put in endless hours into MW2, BFBC2, Blops, Resistance 2 and only put about a half an hour into the single player for resistance and MW2. MP is the best part.

I personally wouldn't even pay $7.50 for Force Unleashed 2. Thought the game was just a garbage, clearly did it for the money sequel.

Another B1G1 so soon seems kind of crazy, but I know what I'll be doing Friday before work.

I somewhat feel the same, not that it was complete garbage, but moreso that $7.50 is a bit steep for how sohrt and shallow it is.

However I would gladly pay $15 for Uncharted 2. So I just look at it as like pay $13 for Uncharted 2, get Force Unleashed II for only $3! (because of tax, not that I do not know math)

Actually last time he posted price drops Mafia II was hanging in there at 19.99$ :bs: but here's hoping I'm wrong. I would love to get a copy and since I'm gonna go for SWTFUII I might as well pick up Mafia II for free if I can.

Kind of odd that no employee knew about it. Must be trying to keep this hush hush :-$ so they can snag all the good stuff.

I think looking at it in terms of 7.50 is a poor decision. It's 15$ for 2 games of your choosing. One game can outweigh another. If you buy SWTFUII with a game that's worth 10$, you technically only spent 5$ on it ;)

Personally I think it's a good game, at least from what I've seen of it. I loved the first game and I'm dying to get my hands on this one. I'm hoping there will be a copy there when I walk into the store.

PS: When do you go to work? I think BBVs open at 10am if I'm not mistaken so unless you go in late that's gonna be a little tough.

I get motion sickness from most FPS. And I also suck at them. I'm the guy that at the end of the round has 3 kills and like 12 deaths. But I will go online once in a while.

I got the first one during the last B1G1 and I really liked it, so I don't mind spending $7.50 on the sequel. I also like to try really bad games.

But don't you see, us people that go 20-5 or 30-5 NEED guys like you who are willing to take all those deaths ;)

I for one love online FPS games, but I do think a game needs to have a damn good single player experience. I admit I put a lot more hours into Blops/MW2/MW1 in the online aspect but I do appreciate when I can turn the online part of it off and enjoy some bad guy killing on my own and not have to listen to 12 year olds shriek in my ear because I shanked em from behind once or twice and they naturally assume I'm camping/haxxorz-ing/a douche. :roll:

I often have to mute my TV as you can already tell lol.

:lol: People used to do that all the time to me in GTA(screaming at me saying I'm hacking or something), but that's cuz my connection sucks so I would likely be lagging although I wasn't doing it intentionally.

Although some of my other tactics in game(priming grenades while running at people, using attack choppers to chop up other players, etc) were intentional and worked well MANY times.;)

lol cooking grenades is so much fun especially in some maps in Blops or whatever when I see guys camping in small room areas or towers it's so easy to just walk up to it while holding RB and then throw it and it blows up within 2 seconds. They have no time to counter or run or anything and they don't even realize I'm there to begin with. It's very rare to see people in the post-match screen who have a nice laugh about it and say "good game" lol most of the time it's 12 year olds using questionable language.

It's pretty good. I liked the storylines in the game a lot more than I did the one in GTA IV. Mind you, as soon as I was done with the storylines in Episodes I started playing multiplayer and I haven't stopped since.

A few friends and I will routinely play for 3-4 hours a night and try to find glitches to mess around with. Probably the most interesting one is a certain building in Alderney where you can slam a chopper into the roof and take it underneath the map....and fire up from under the map at other people.:lol:

All I remember from GTAIV online was the swing glitch LOL! Me and my buddy would take a bunch of random cars and stuff there and make em fly all over the map or he would stand on top of the car and go flying and splatter into a building. Hilarious stuff, but it would get boring after a while. I hope the multiplayer modes other than free roam can hold my interest.

There was a glitch in resistance 2 MP where guys would somehow get into buliding you normally can't and shot gun your ass as you went around the busy corner. It used to piss me off... but I would've laughed my ass off if I was in there!

In Episodes you have a reloadable/reusable parachute(like in Just Cause 2, if you've ever played that game), so you can now base jump from whatever high buildings you see in the game. If you can get to the top of the building, you can base jump off of it.;)

That also makes for more fun when doing the swingset glitch, since now you can bail out of your flying car and parachute to safety.:D

I've learned how to fly a chopper under the map now and I can get up inside buildings you normally can't in the game. I sat in the one building the one night for like 45 minutes waiting for some random griefer to come by trying to shoot me while I was inside the building.

So one finally comes by and starts trying to shoot me with a shotgun. I whip out my RPG and blast him to kingdom come and sit there laughing for the next couple of minutes.;)
