Because it's from Bethesda...and they're notorious for making GotY editions of their games.


There wont be a GOTY edition for New vegas, but there should be some type of compilation yea, thats a given. but at 9.99 for your vanilla copy, it might end up being cheaper in the long run, then a re-released 49.99-59.99 compilation pack.


Crap why cant lords of shadow hit 20 ? The lowest its been is 30


Just get it at 30! I bough the LE for 80 and havn't regretted a cent of it! Its a MASTERFUL game.

Seriously, you guys haven't heard anything bad about F:NV? Do you read gaming blogs? It had a bad rep from the start partly because of the game itself, but mostly because of game-freezing glitches. I've had friends that stopped playing mid-game cuz they can't get any further. Granted, some of the recent patches might have helped some, but people still complain about glitches and my Fallout junkie friends still get console freezes every so often.

There will be people chiming in saying they didn't experience any glitches. I didn't either for Fallout 3 or Oblivion, despite what people have said so take it for what it's worth.

With Skyrim releasing in 4 months, I ain't touching F:NV unless someone gave it to me for free. Even then I'd have to think if I want to risk the time and frustration.

Good price if you really want it though. :)


That's why there are things called "updates."

Visually, the game really shows how old the engine is. Otherwise, it's a blast to play if you enjoyed the original.

A 3rd and 4th DLC for Fallout New Vegas has already been officially announced for this year, and there are strong rumors of a 5th and possibly 6th DLC being in the works for going into next year, so those of you wishing for an all-in-one compilation are going to have to wait at LEAST a year from now, probably xmas 2012. That said, though, I'm *definitely* waiting for it myself, cuz even at $9.99 for the main game, and even if I wait for the DLCs to go on Deal Of The Week for 50% off, I'm still gonna have to spend $20-30 in DLCs on top of a $10 game, and that's just not gonna happen.

New Vegas was a great game. Put 55+ hours into it and really enjoyed it. However, i did NOT finish exploring the whole world, there is a lot more game than 55+ hours.

Do the gift cards from console deals usually have an expiration date?

Best Buy giftcards DO NOT EXPIRE

Usually its a year from when you got it.

^^^they promote the fact that their's don't expire or have fees
link:http://www.bestbuy.c...0.c?id=cat09000

that it's probably more of an overstock issue.

correct plus thanks to the Gamestop FA:NV b2g1 flip to BB for credit there's a huge influx of used games that will take away from new sales. Not to mention the total # of new copies stores ordered expecting the game to sell like LA Noire through the 1st few weeks but the glitches turned people off right away.

If I were to pick up AC: Brotherhood tomorrow using the @Gamer coupon, would I be able to get a price adjustment next week? I'm assuming it's somewhere between 'hell no' and 'only if I get the world's most awesome cashier/manager team,' but a little confirmation would be nice.

people on the @gamer thread have reported no problems getting adjustments this way with Dragon Age 2 when it went from $20 to $15.

Man I'm being a bit of a cheap ass gamer in my mind. Amazon sells Midnight Club for $20, so $15 + tax from Target is a bit lukewarm. $10 would have made it a definite purchase.


Check TRU I think their b1g1 40% of 50% off may work for you depending on what price($20 or $30) the game is.

I've stayed away from Midnight Club because I heard it gets very difficult and the ai is cheap. I seem to remember that a patch was supposed to be released to fix this. Was it fixed with the complete version?
I got nothing...

Oh trust me I understand AC:B for $15 I remember all the chaos on my @gamer thread when the game was $30 but the coupon weren't confirmed to stack yet THEN...lol I wouldn't mention that the coupons expired though people were probably just letting them know they didn't feel like doing a return/rebuy for a coupon they already used.

Enuf,

Do you know how the 40% Trade in bonus would work when preordering NCAA 12? Do I get a ticket from the kiosk and then take my games to customer service and use the preorder ticket to get the bonus? Assuming their TIV don't tank tomorrow I have some games I'd like to trade in if I can get the 40% extra for just putting $5 towards NCAA12

Solid, $40 for both sounds like a good deal. Any other titles with picking up with this sale (obviously sets of 2 are better)?

Child of Eden is awesome, but like others have said the price is falling pretty quickly for some reason so I'm not sure it's worth it in this deal.

I've heard Child of Eden is amazing, and Your Shape is really good too. Well, if you're into the whole fitness game thing.

I hated Dead Rising but really enjoyed Dead Rising 2. It did a very good job of addressing all my issues with the first game. Which were mainly the horrible AI of the people you tried to save, annoying boss type battles, time felt too constricting and I didn't like Frank West.

:-k Hmm...FO:NV for $9.99 sounds like a steal (like others have said), especially from what I've heard about the writing, but with Skyrim coming out in November, would it be worth it? Can anyone who's played the DLC for New Vegas released thus far say if the DLC would be worth waiting for in a complete GotY package?

I personally have played the first DLC pack and it was terrible, so glad I got it for 400 pts.

The DLC is all pretty brief. Consider also that any GOTY would probably be at least $40. And with XBL gold you frequently get DLC sales. Would seem to be a good bet to get it at $10 and get DLC if you really enjoy the game, perhaps even get the DLC on sale.

Also while an open world game, I can't see this lasting you past the release of Skyrim. Not even close really, I beat it on a rental.

To be honest I'm not sure but the specialized gaming reps @ BB seem to know their $hit. You should be able to find them at the new trade in kiosk. Call the store if you know they have a kiosk ask to be transfered to gaming they should be able to help.

I talked to one some time ago before E3 & he knew "big things" were coming & right after that the unadvertised deals started showing up along with the MK/Portal 2/Socom 4 gc deals. I spoke with one Friday he was a true gamer let him know to join CAG so we can get more inside info.

$10 is more then fair for FO:NV. It's not as revolutionary as FO3 but still a decent game.

So I take it from this thread the xbox version of new Vegas is less buggy than the ps3? Is the 360 the version to get?
