Thinking about getting the original Left 4 Dead and COD4:Modern Warfare. Should I just skip both and go for their respective sequels? Kind of want Modern Warfare 2 just for the campaign.


COD4 Modern Warfare in my opinion has a much better single player campaign than MW2 and MW3. I would play that over the other two if I had to choose.

As for Left 4 Dead I guess you can skip as the story was not really that compelling since the game is more about co-op than story.

This is mainly to clear out inventory. I'm sure online is flooded with refurbed copies of all of these shooters plus the stores are also.

Good prices though, take advantage of them while you can.

I agree with those that prefer MW > MW 2 & 3. It was pretty much copy/paste after the first one. The multiplayer was damn fine as well and didn't rely on cheap killstreaks. If it's the campaign that you want it for and that only, it's a much better game than it's sequels.

Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 are also both $10.49, but not available for shipping. Since this seems to work in stores, I'm going to head out to a gamestop tomorrow.

Gohastings is doing a sale right now (30% off all used games). Deus Ex is $13.98 and shipping is about $2 so thats $16 if you want so save a few.

Power Up Rewards


Hmm don't see it in my poweruprewards login....? Guess they took it down.

I tried to redeem a 20% off coupon with 3000 points and it said unavailable.

What a joke!

Somehow I missed this thread yesterday.

I'll go out and pick up Halo 3 and Left 4 Dead. Somehow don't have those two but the more recent games.

I sorta wish the original Battlefield Bad Company for 360 was included as well.

ODST and GeoW2, if you already have GeoW. If you don't, buy it.

Can you use power up rewards certificates on items prices lower than the certificate? I'd like to get Halo 3 and just use a $5 certifacife.

I don't believe you can, but you can always throw in a .99 filler game to bump it over $5

Without a doubt, if you enjoy online multiplayer, Black Ops.

Still in the top three most played Xbox Live games. I dont see that game dying anytime soon.

Yes you can. I used a $10-off coupon to purchase a copy of MGS2 Substance a while back, which was 9.99 used (before PUR discount). The guy warned me that I'd be losing the remaining balance, but I didn't care. The transaction went through just fine, and I left with my 'free' game.

Yes you can, but keep this in mind:

Today I picked up a copy of Gears 2. I used a $5 rewards coupon and we expecting to get it for $7 - $5 - 10% for having the card. But for the current promo the system takes 30% off the old price. So I ended up only getting a discount of $1.50 from the sale rather than the normal $3. Not a huge deal, but figured it's worth mentioning

The coupon is for $5 off any one used game, not your entire purchase.

well there you have it, two confirmations


So then you still save money by using CAG16 depending on how many games, and the cost. By the way, my order will arrive today. Saved $.72 on two games I probably won't play for a month, and didn't have to walk into a Gamestop store. That's a double-win in my book.
