but we'd rather spend our time and energy doing what matters most

HOW ABOUT SPENDING SOME TIME AND ENERGY ON THE FRONT END

When I worked retail I would be YELLED at if I let two or more people stack up without calling for another cashier. And if there was a problem customer I knew I had to call in immediately.

It was a smooth ride.

Have there been negative ads aimed at Best Buy? I haven't seen any.


seriously i was lik wtf is this shit, is best buy resorting to begging now? impartial? hardly...some rep in which i expresssed interest in the macbook told me he hated macs, impartial my ass. i wonder if i send them an email and ask them for 20 dollar rz cert for not being impartial. the nerve.

Great price! I went ahead and snagged the PS3 version for my 3-year old. He's really mature for his age, though, and he's been bugging me to play it. Since it's not available for him to play on his Wii-U, I went ahead and caved for a cheap, surprise stocking stuffer, to go along with the Cars diecasts and Thomas trains!


coolest mom/dad EVER! but u cant top my great grandmother who bought me mortal kombat and a sega genesis on my 5th birthday. miss her.

i know im a day late to that conversation, but my daughters love to play sr3 more than any other game. it's either sr3, the horse game (rdr), sims 3 or skylanders. It's totally messed up and i tell them not to do anything bad. lol. they just run around doing nothing but its still funny.

I got my copy of Saint Row: The Third from Amazon (PM Best Buy DotD) and the DLC disc has smudges all on the back. The disc is not readable and I can't get it clean. The packaging was super easy to get off the case when opening so I think someone carefully opened it to get the DLC. The smudges are caked on so I guess they were eating some nasty shit while stealing. Games heading back to Amazon for replacement.

Check to make sure your disc does not have the same issue if your paranoid about it :)

Dude, did you miss Barbie: Groom and Glam Pups for $12.99? I think that might be worth locating a telegraph, or at the very least, sending up a smoke signal to notify the folks back home.

Those who have never spent a penny on TOR can still get sprint but have to wait till level 15. This sounds like a cheap way for F2P players to check out subscriber perks for 30 days then get bumped up to preferred status.

I played from release until my free 30 days ran out. Unless they severely overhauled this game, it's not worth more than a play through on a character class of your choice. This sprint "feature" was actually there for us early adopters too, I guess they eventually patched it out.

Knights of the Old Republic parts 3 - 10 this isn't as the creators were shilling it as last year. For an MMO though, the main storyline while leveling was above average. There were too many obvious time sinks built into the game and the lack of the ability to communicate across the entire faction on your server killed any sort of endgame dungeon running or PVP.

Perfect assessment. However I would recommend this to any star wars/bioware fans who haven't played it yet just for the story alone. This was the best mmo storyline I've ever played and well worth a playthrough (if not more). I made it once and haven't been on since the f2p switch but I think it's worth checking out. Also it's probably worth seeing what the most expensive game ever produced is like...

View it as a Star Wars single player game for the main story and side quests (which you can pretty much solo anyway) and you get a lot of game out of it. Go into for the usually mmo grind and its not as fun. You get a lot of game for 4.99/free.

Can I just buy a few of these and use the 30 day codes to add time to my sub right now?

I wonder if it only lets you activate 1 30 day card per account

I played WOW for a year before I was married and had kids. After that year I decided that I couldn't do it anymore. I just don't know how you can do it without neglecting everything that actually matters in life.

I dont believe there are any extra charges. You can go from 1-50 and do the main story for free.

i am sure it is possible....but it never seems to work out that way. its like doing cocaine and heroin yes it is possible to do it and not get addicted and not fall into life's sinking pit of insanity and despair but the odds are so stacked against you it just isnt possible.
