I'd jump in on Metroid but seeing as it's $10 at GameStop NEW, I'll pass and wait for an even cheaper price.


Isn't $8 LESS than $10? This is a new game, not used...

After skimming this crap, I think its best to burn all copies of this game and never speak of it again. Ever.


Way ahead of you.


uh....Dotd page updated but no videogame on it.
Oh well.

...And to go back on topic, looks like there will be no video game in the DoTD. They've got a desktop, antivirus software, and some blu-rays.

Video games DOTDs appear to be only twice a week. It has been like that every week now.

So you're one of the 'post just the deals' people? This is a community of gamers and deal hunters and as such many of us wanna know how good or bad a game is BEFORE we spend our money/credit on it. I, for one, like when people post these lil mini reviews(albeit not the ones that are just 'omg this game suuuuuuuucks' without giving any real reasons and by real reasons I mean not those affiliated with graphics) in a game deal thread, since it gives me an idea how good/bad a title is.

It only takes what....3 seconds to skim a post and see if something is relevant to the deal thread at hand, right? Yet people act like it's such a huge imposition to have to read anything THEY view as 'off topic'.

As for that sig, I know who it's from.


I agree with you on that statement. I skim a lot of these threads because I like to give an insightful opinion on the games. Sometimes I'll even post in a thread where I know I'm not going to purchase the game, but I want to know other's comments on the game etc. It's good to skim quite often because being a true CAG is knowing how low a game has been so you can compare it to a current sale or whatnot.

Come now, it's not that bad if you just mute it and avert your eyes during every cut-scene...

But this free indie game Metroid Confrontation is better, IMO...

if you buy a terrible game then you're not being cheap-ass.
I give opinions too. Half of saving money is knowing what NOT to buy (no matter the cost).

Agreed. I hate when people say 'no time machine, can't replicate deal'. No you can't but at least you know the lowest it's been.

I totally got my $5 worth from other M. So to each their own is the moral of the story

There's a difference between "It's been lower so you might get that price" and "I got Halo Reach LE for $8." for bragging purposes.

Come on, what are the chances of it being $8 again? It was one of those great string of DOTDs from Best Buy during the holidays. Nobody gives a Fuck that you got Halo Reach LE for $8 because the chances are practically nil that it could happen again.

It happens a lot with certain posters. Someone will say "Infamous Hero edition for $30!" which is a hell of a deal in anyone's book. But then someone will say "got it for $20."

Uhhh, good job. Is there a time machine? :roll:

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Man, it might just be me; but BB has been having some crazy good sales and DOTD deals lately. Maybe it's in response to their apparently lagging profits after hearing about the store closings and corporate layoffs a few months ago, idk. :-?

But regardless, I've been racking up on some games that I had kinda wanted to get; but just wasn't willing to pay much for. :razz: I got Bulletstorm and Mass Effect 2 for PS3 back when they had the $15 off coupons in the March @Gamer, got the Skylanders Megapack with the $50 off coupon (yeah I know, kiddy game but whatever, it's fun :)), Fallout 3: GotY for $12 from the outlet (had been wanting the dlc but it's still $50 combined to download...wtf Bethseda :twoguns:), S&P: Star Successor for $5 and going to pick up Back to the Future today with the 50% off coupon.

Who knows when I'll get around to playing all this crap; but oh well, it was cheap. :D

Time machines were $9.99 last week when I got mine.

On topic though, my copy of Sin and Punishment: Star Successor got here today. Apparently somewhere on its way to my house, someone took a knife to the bubble mailer it came in and sliced all the way through to the game's case. Surprisingly, there was no damage to the artwork, but I just have to wonder what was up with that.

OK, Best Buy got it right. I came home to Madden 12 Hall of Fame today.
I was worried with all the people who were getting backordered e-mails, that they just sent me a Vanilla Madden instead.

Codes and card are up for trade if anyone has a Assassin's Creed Brotherhood CE Strategy Guide.
