Why not just wait for Dishonored to drop in price substantially before buying it so you can enjoy the game and take your time without trying to recoup most of your money back by rushing through it? Or better yet, just rent the game?


I was going to switch my $44.99 Newegg pre-order to Best Buy today but Newegg had already processed my order around 6 this morning. I'm actually saving ~$19 + fuel since I don't get charged tax at Newegg, but I'm missing out on the pre-order bonuses and the 60 day price match window.

While Dishonored has been more closely compared to Bioshock and Half life with its own "thing" going on, does anyone else get a Singularity vibe off of it?

I bought Singulaity as a day one purchase and found the game to be great in a ton of areas...but once I beat it, loaded my saves for the other 2 endings, and brushed up on the last couple achievement, I was done with it.

My point being...the premise of DIshonored should be fantastic, but I feel it will fall short. Hopefully not though! Hopefully...

Online, instore pickup is not available so it will be shipped. I'm still getting the lamp when I add it to my cart so it should still be available.

Longer than 2 weeks that's for sure....it helps to read the terms and conditions of something you are taking part in.

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.

It was doing that for me as well. I cleared my cart a couple times and finally got it to appear. Why that worked, I have no idea.

it seems alot of ppl just decided to preorder dishonored at the last minute, after seeing the high reviews, lol. i am going to have to pass on this game, after reading reviews about that the stealth approach almost being required, because it can affect your gameplay on later missions, due to the after effect it has on later misson's difficulty levels, if you keep using the confrontational method, by going head to head.

thats what im afraid of the stealth portions kind of like deus ex that changes the game. im hoping im wrong and its more like assassins creed or mgs stealth. i still rolled the dice and preorder

i think the review i saw mentioned it being more like deus ex, i am not 100% certain. from all the walkthrough i saw on youtube, it just is not my type of game. i am not trying to persuade other from getting it. it is just my opinion, so don't jump on me for it

I'm quite excited for when this happens actually. My gf gave me money to get her bro BL2 for his bday, and told me I could keep the receipt to PM whenever sales happened and I could keep it all :D

I have a feeling though this game is going to be one of the slowwww ones to hit decent sales. I see the earliest only being a $49.99 price.

i happened to need to buy a vanilla version for my brother that saturday(which was what i was going to use the credit for in the first place).

called about a week ago to find out the status of the credit... and they said it was being processed.

i just got the rz credit applied to the 2nd one i bought without a preorder, not the first.


Same thing happened to me. The 1000 points applied on the purchase without the preorder even though it was a different platform :roll:.

I also preordered Dishonored for the reasons mentioned above (60 day pm window and certificate), but I'm not sure if I should cancel my Amazon order so I could place it with Best Buy for the same reasons. I just really want that MoH steelbook (or as they call it, tin case)....


Not sure if it matter to you but tin case =/= steelbook. Tin case is EA's knockoff steelbook. From my experience with the ME3 one, the discs are hard to get out and I would not get one again.

Which is why I also said deals are posted in general. If a game is on sale anywhere that is regional/nationwide and not just a single store or two it will get posted on here, all ya need to do is search.

I was not able to for borderland II, at least if you wanted to keep the 1000 RZ points. The guy told me that if I wanted to switch version. He would have to cancel the order, and ring it up as new. Therefore you will lose the 1000 RZ point for pre-order. :booty:

I'd say no because even if they rung it up as an exchange, it might show up as a return/rebuy as far as the promo goes. I think the only acceptable "exchange" situation is the $5 deposit where I've read it doesn't mess up the $20 promo.

I had this issue and had to post on the forums to get my points. However, it was indicated that if the return/purchase would have been on the same transaction then the points would have credited automatically.
