Disney universe is tempting. My son loved the demo. But I'll hold off some more. DLCs are still high priced IMO

The steelbook will be in-store as well, but it's going to be on a limited basis when you pick up the game. Basically I was told we'll be getting the steelbooks drop-shipped to us this week, and we hand them out to our preorders when they pick up the game. So at this point, the steelbooks are already ordered so if you preorder last minute you run the risk of not getting it b/c no more will be ordered. Same thing with The Witcher 2 t-shirts tomorrow.

I really am not in the rush to play prototype 2 but dam that steelbook looks sweet plus the other goodies BB is throwing in with the pre-order. I guess I will drop by my local BB tomorrow to see how many the gaming manager ordered for my store.

Plus you have 30 days to price adjust if it drops or goes on sale in that time period.

Older, uninformed people. I stopped like 3 people from buying them the last time I went to Bestbuy and informed them about monoprice. I'm a menace to Bestbuy but I can't stand seeing people get ripped off like that. Brings a tear to this cheapasses eye :'(

Silent Hill HD is very tempting.

I'm curious about KoA: Reckoning. I pre-ordered the game, probably from NewEgg for $48, don't remember exactly. I still haven't played it yet. I read if you either pre-ordered or bought it new that you got something like 7-8 extra quests. Supposedly, they won't be offered as DLC later.

Think they would be part of the GOTY version? I'm kinda tempted to sell mine because I won't be able to play it for a while and someone else would enjoy the bonus quests.
Billy Mitchell is better than you.

For those with the April @Gamer, there's a $10 off coupon for The Darkness II.

$40 has been the new MSRP so there's no rush at this point. Wait for a sale or be prepared to come back & pm'd the cheaper adjusted price later. http://www.cheapassg...=318456&page=38

Nothing for me, but I'll probably use the $10 coupon for darkness II. Thanks midnightmetal for giving us a VERY early weekly AD each week :applause::applause:.

I must warn against Prototype 2, after having played the first one since it was one of the worst games I have ever played in my life. At least wait for bargain bin since you know it will be there in no time.

Just being helpful.


Helpful would be explaining why it was so bad in your eyes; I didn't finish it myself as I found the combat frustrating, but I certainly wouldn't call it one of the worst games I ever played (!!)

considering there's different levels of worst/bad...DNF, Homefront, Call of Juarez the cartel, X-blades...plus it would also depend on the games he's played LOL.

Given how quickly and how many DLCs are being released, I'm certain that a GotY version is incoming...that's if you have a massive backlog and can wait a bit longer.


The stance Schilling has taken on DLC for this game gives me the impression there will be no GOTY version (not sure who named it GOTY) so don't hold out for that.

Great game, tons of content. Well worth full price and I don't pay full price but I did here.

Ahhh, didn't even realize the MSRP dropped so quickly. Assuming you want to play it now (or the immediate future) and if $30 is your price point for The Darkness II, you can use the coupon anytime until April 8th. If you're willing to save a bit of money, you can wait for MidnightMetal to work his magic and hopefully The Darkness II is on sale before the coupon expires.

Looking for input on KoA. If you already have it I have 2 questions: how good is it and at what price is it a good value?


If you area fan of Skyrim/Fable/RPGS you will love this game. About 100+ hours of gameplay through sides/main and faction quests. Story is decent, but the gameplay and constant upgrade system of weapons and armor keeps you wanting to play. World is huge and you will always be doing something. Only drawbacks are lack of varying gameplay mechanics and repetitive side quests but those things are easily overlooked by how fun the game is. Can see it going any lower than $40 bucks for a while

ya on the PC. i dont play PC. im on ps3. bf:bc2 really only had 1 dlc and thats vietnam. all the other crap was just maps on the disc EA decided to slowly bleed out. mass effect 2 had a complete edition on the ps3. crysis 2 had like 2 map packs?

im talking about games with like 4+ packs (borderlands for example)

im still wondering what "stance" schilling took that gave the impression a GOTY edition wasnt ever coming out. thats my main question.

Mass Effect 2 for 360? I don't really count the PS3 version.

Are there GOTY versions of the Call of Duty Franchise?

Darkness 2 did drop. MSRP went from 60 to 40 like a week ago.


I believe my GameStop had it for $35 earlier today. I liked the demo and all but unsure of the final product.

Anyone recommend it?

Sorry, I'm new to this. >_>

they already announced a second dlc will be released at the end of this month, so idunno. if not a goty, a platinum hits version with a few of the dlcs (assuming theres more coming which is likely since it was designed to be an mmo originally) seems pretty plausible.

The stance Schilling has taken on DLC for this game gives me the impression there will be no GOTY version (not sure who named it GOTY) so don't hold out for that.

Great game, tons of content. Well worth full price and I don't pay full price but I did here.

It's hard to really say that ME2 for PS3 is a GOTY-type bundle because it was a year later on a new platform rather than a rerelease. Currently, no version of ME2 includes the Arrival DLC mission.

Only for COD4 which I think had the only map pack. MW2 and Black Ops had bundles with the first map pack via PSN/XBL codes but nothing including everything. They are also only in specially marked packages.
