    1d20 to save vs CAG

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 06 September 2012 - 02:27 PM

I'd love Witcher 2 for $10. The only BB I go to lists it as "ship to store" though. Of course, every other out of the way store has it in stock.

FYI, 'ship to store' is similar to 'unavailable', meaning there may be 1-3 copies on the shelf at that location.
The BBY I frequent had Witcher 2 listed as 'ship to store'. I called and found they had 1 copy left on the shelf. I had them hold it for me and walked out of the 'ship to store' BBY w/ my $10 W2 a couple hours later.

I ordered site to store, we'll see if I get it in time to return/rebuy while the deal is still active. Never played the series before, steam has the witcher 1 for 10$, would you recommend a play through of it before this one, does the witcher 2 have continuity from part 1 or are they completely different stories?

Edit: hrmm just watched a review, not only does it say you should play threw the first one before playing the second, they also say you can import your save file over on the PC version. Might just have to cancel and go PC versions for this series.

Got myself another copy of Witcher 2, hope it is as fun as everyone says it is.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

It's sort of a continuation. It's the same main character but I don't think you lose anything by just playing the second one. There are a few references but the gameplay is a bit different. If you're a big fan of RPGs, you can go back and enjoy the first game. If you really don't care and want to jump into all the changes they made to the 2nd game to make it a little more modern, you're just as well off.

Yeah no need to play the first one unless you get hardcore about it, the combat was a frustrating timing-based click system with 3 different stances. The 2nd game is more modern feel & there's only 3 or so very minor things in the story that carry over if you import a save on the PC.

If someone can use their coupon a second time and grab me a Witcher 2, that'd be really kickass and I'd pay you back +shipping+a small cool fee for being cool.

Just claimed and picked up my Witchers 2 today. Man. That game case is heavy! Definitely got my money's worth for just $10.

I hope Mass Effect 3 will be $10 soon. It's the only way I would pick up the vanilla version.

I picked up Witcher 2 yesterday along with GOW3 Epic Edition - $64.xx out the door. Not too shabby.

Good to know. Hopefully mine still has a copy.

Is that even possible? Since it's actually tied to your RZ account, does it not block you from getting the discount a second time?

It is possible, just do more than 1 transaction (1 game per transaction)

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I was actually just going to ask about this. I was checking MYRZ.com to see if my points from recent transactions had cleared yet, and noticed under my most recent ones that the Max Payne AND Witcher 2 coupons were still active. Noticed that they were actually in EVERY purchase listed since I activated them, even on prior to when I actually purchased the game (that store was OOS).

If all I need to do is grab another one...will definitely get another copy...

Finally had to bite on MGS: HD....used a $15 certificate and it ended up being $10 for the game.


Did the same thing. It's fantastic on the Vita.. definitely part of my keeper collection.

For those mentioning using the same coupon in a separate transaction, isn't that a bit risky? I'm assuming doing something like that would raise flags. Maybe I'm just being paranoid and it wouldn't work when trying to scan the coupon a second time.

Best Buy online said my local store was sold out. Went anyways and there was one copy left. It was still marked at $49.99. It rang up $39.99 and with the $30.00 off coupon I paid $9.99 plus tax. Great deal.

While it may raise some flags what are we doing wrong? They messed up not us. It's not like I am using false information to purchase them.

Also, there is no coupon, you don't need to bring it. Just bring the game to the register, give them your RZ card/phone number and it'll adjust down to $10.

Seems no stores have any near me, went to 3 today. If I have it shipped to the store will they reimburse me the $30? Or can I just pay for it at the store? I've never actually bought anything online and had it shipped to store but I really want this game for some reason or another. =/

A few days ago all the stores had copies, it was still ringing up at 49.99 then, today only one store near me had it online. I went into the store they were all missing, there wasnt even a place for them on the shelf, asked the associate, he pulled one out the back.... shenanigans!

Purchased Witcher 2 earlier this week before the price drop. Went to Best Buy today to get my price adjusted, and they said it couldn't be done because the coupon will only apply to full price.

Not sure how you guys are getting it for $10.

Do a flat out return and rebuy it if the store refuses to just do a price adjustment.

Your store is lying to you that is why we are able to get it. The game is not on sale according to the website. It may be a temporary $10 drop, but nothing makes it seem that way from the consumer end.

I appreciate the advice. I might try that, but they seemed rather indignant. In fact, I didn't even dispute their assertion that a price adjustment couldn't be made before they aggressively asked if I wanted to talk with a manager.

I feel like they'll try to have me arrested if I try anything more.

Not much of an AceAttorney if you can't fight for your rights as a consumer. Just go in and say "I OBJECT!" to any form of tomfoolery, then return and rebuy.

Yeah Victory with the PM at my "home" Best Buy. The CS there is so much better than the 2nd BBY I go to. They actually listen to what you are trying to tell them instead of the standard answers. She did a return and rebuy and the coupon reapplied so I got it for $10.50.
