Well I called about getting new coupons issues from welcome packet since the b2g1 is only get for like, 1 week and the b2g1 on pre-owned for 2 since last week there was a b2g1. Was told basically that I have to use them before they expire but if I don't they "should" be able to issue me new ones.

I just beat the campaign for :ps3: Medal of Honor: Warfighters and will return it to Redbox tonight. If you don't care about multiplayer, this is easily a one day rental. If you preordered it and haven't picked it up yet, you may want to cancel.

I liked the variety of the missions, and the characters (Preacher, Voodoo, Stump, Dusty, etc.) all make a return from the first game. I also like the enemies don't magically keep spawning unless you move past a certain spot on the ground (looking at you COD: World at War).

The environment has dynamic destruction and gives a good sense of your bullets actually making an impact. The sound, weapon recoil, and bullet drop physics are nice touches as well.

Great campaign to play through one time, but not worth $60 at all in my opinion.

So approximately a 6 hour single player campaign?

Just make sure to tell the employee to process the transaction as a price match and to not do it as a return/rebuy or it will mess up the $20 RWZ promotion they are currently running. That's what I always say beforehand, it will also say "Price Match" on the receipt they give you if done correctly.

Price Matching at the time of purchased worked for me with RE6 and Frys.

Kind of hoping I can find a deal on WWE 13 for next week too as I'd like to get it from BB along with AC3.

Ah, I see. Can they refuse to process it as a price match for any reason? Also, should I bother trying all this at the midnight launch?

Yeah. I play games really slowly so I could probably have beaten it sooner than the two days it took me to beat it. I just read the Destructoid review where it gets absolutely trashed, and I think he stopped reviewing the game by its own merits and just wanted to send a message to EA. It doesn't deserve a 5/10 in my book, I'd say a solid 7/10.

No, the only way to get this messed up is if you get someone who doesn't know what they're doing. As for price matching at midnight I personally would wait until the next day but it shouldn't be a problem if you decided to do it right there and then.

Playing my redbox rental now as well. I'll post my time if i can look it up on a menu. The cut scenes when they are in casual clothes are probably the best looking humans in a gage I've ever seen though!!! Simply amazing

Quick Question. I just found out that my BB isn't doing a midnight release for Halo 4, and I already have it pre-ordered there. I really want to get it at midnight, but I really want that $20 BB credit also. So could I pick up a copy at Walmart at midnight, then return the BB copy to Walmart with the receipt?

Yes. I have had them scan the bar code off my phone. It confused them when I did it, but it worked.

It's been a while since I've tried..but can RZ certs be used towards a BBY gift card to use on a Visa prepaid in-store? Or better yet, the Visa prepaid itself?

I've got about $85 on GCs and a $45 cert that I would like to just put on a Visa.

They were calling reward zone customers telling them to update their reward zone and the 9 district said this violated telemarketer do not call rules. Best Buy was claiming they had the right to call....

Just a heads up as I'm in the same situation as you, I think the Walmart copies are going to have a "only at walmart" thing on them since they come with a doritos/dew double exp code, so not sure if that will work. I decided to buy a second copy then sell it on launch for like a 10 buck loss since I want to play it at midnight plus I'll get more pre-order bonuses this way.

I would say 6/10, mainly because MP is not complete crap but far from good. SP was great finished it shortly after jumping on earlier today and played a crap ton of MP, all ready to trade it back into BB, it also comes with a free trial to the MP so redbox would be great for this game.

if you have a different bestbuy near you that's doing a midnight release you could always go there to pick it up.. i'm sure they will have plenty of copies

Activision doesn't like Day 1 deals on their games, especially Call of Duty titles.

They don't like Day 1 deals so they requested it not to be shown on the product page. It still qualifies though.
