Me too, never understood the point of buying games at launch*, never bought games at launch except for going rare CEs.

*to keep for myself. Bought plenty at launch as gifts, thanks to GCU

Only time I buy games at launch is when it's one I've been waiting for and I know I'll play as soon as I pick it up.

Pretty much same here (picked up a handful at launch this year...Doom 3, Lollipop Chainsaw, RE6, the Silent Hill ps3 releases, etc). Or, sometimes, if it's a game with multiplayer/coop that friends are picking up at launch...

A good rule of thumb is never buy any game on/near launch day.


I break this rule several times a year, especially with how good BB's deals are with GCU and their 20 dollar certificate deal with preorders.

Back on topic, if I didn't already have ME3, I'd pick it up. This game is really that good and the multiplayer is loads of fun. Great price for a game that takes lots of time but is enjoyable about every step of the way.

Ordered ME3. I've been building up a backlog, but it'll likely move ahead of a few games on the list.

Over the last few years I have learned that you do not buy the following game series on/near launch day:

Assassins Creed
Mass Effect
Dirt


I'd add Elder Scrolls, Fable and Fallout games to that list as well (well, pretty much anything that's single player or has the majority of focus on that).

I rarely buy anything at launch, though. Left 4 Dead, Halo and Borderlands games are pretty much it for me.

Last week when The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition for XBOX 360 i jumped on it, based on the description in the BB site i was expecting the extras which are the Soundtrack a map and Questbook guide in physical from. All i got was the map inside the game and a sticker on the wrapper in front telling me to go to thewitcher.com/extras to dl the digital copies of the book and the soundtrack. Did anyone else also get the same version as me or am i SOL.

Same as you. The enhanced Edition of Witcher 2 isn't so enhanced.... I supposed in this day and age, having an actual instruction booklet is a bonus item.

I Got mine when it was $10 a few months back and it was in a slipcover housing the quest handbook inside of and the game case. Inside the case was the map, the game discs and soundtrack. So maybe one of those first print run situations?

Maybe your's is a reprint? I picked up the enhanced edition when it was a Reward Zone Gamer's Club offer, a couple of months ago, and mine came with the slipcase, book, map and soundtrack CD. Does the artwork on your's say "Enhanced Edition"?

If I bought this TV 10 days ago, will they price adjust today if I brought my receipt in or not?

For anyone wondering, the TV is pretty descent for gaming as well as viewing. 3D is nice and requires passive glasses, but this model comes with 4 pairs. It also has the dual play thing, which allows splitscreen games to be played one a single screen for both players, granted you have a pair with left only and right only.

Anyone looking at the data would have to agree that it's possible. However a rogue manager might assume you lack wisdom and attempt to put his foot down with you since he can't do it at home with his wife. This an area where many managers are particularly weak. Despite the rogue manager, we can be more or less certain the transaction will complete its cycle.

Although the price match guarantee appears to exclude DOTD's, the Extended Holiday Returns does not. It is no exaggeration to say that the statement "No product exclusions" puts you in a strong position to Return/rebuy.

SonOfMan, thanks for you help, but guess what? I bought it November 3rd, haha. It was $100 more, so $679.99, but I had a $100 gift card. A bit bummed, but this was my FIRST HD tv and so I was happy to actually be able to play my games and read the text. I came from a 19"SDTV, so hopefully some of you can see my delight.

Anyways, this TV does have a gaming mode, and really, I can't see the milliseconds between pushing the button and firing during my online FPS adventures (Halo 4, Black Ops 2) so it works for your online games. And 3D black ops is awesome. I never thought 3D gaming could be so fun!

Is this just for that extended holiday price match or has it always been this way?

Return re-buy. You should run and try to get that $100 back before they close! SERIOUSLY! Go and try to do SOMETHING!:hot:

All thought it's been a couple of months since I've last price matched a deal of the day, I've done the same and never had an issue. I've done it both in store and over the phone with customer service.

In my opinion it would be foolish not to try to get the price match as the worst that could happen is the manager says no.

Be careful what you say here on CAG. This is to many a non issue, myself included, but to some people on this site, your describing a form of retail fraud (which it isn't.) Just letting you know, because hell hath no fury like a cheap ass scorned....
