Just noticed the X-Com $15 gift card promotion today. I had already decided that I was going to pay $60 and get it on day one anyway, just because I want it so damn bad, so the gift card is great news.

Looks like just X-Com, Fifa, RE 6 Archives, and Dishonored for me. Still, it's a good haul and the $60 in RZ certs plus $15 gift card makes it all even better.


how is x-com games? in terms of difficulty, i am kinda of interested in it from the gameplay i saw.

Same here. A turn-based strategy game with a competent control scheme on consoles? Yes please. I just hope the 360 keeps a multiplayer community for at least a little while. Possible double dip if there's a nice steam sale sometime this year, perhaps over the holidays.

I think the original one was notoriously difficult. The new one has variable difficulty with the highest difficulty being pretty hard. The producers themselves have a tough time with it from what they said on livestreams.

I thought I read a while ago they turned x-com into a FPS. (I'm not kidding.)

I love TBS games. Will have to check this out.

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.

you are right tho, there is a fps game in development call "x-com". last i heard the development was halted for whatever reason. the game that is coming out with $15 gc offer from bestbuy is call " x-com: enemy unknown". there are two different types of games, but similar title

Yeah that is still in development. They announced that game (just called XCom) in 2010 but it has been delayed several time. As far as I know they still plan to release it next year. This game (Enemy Unknown) was announced long after the FPS one and it will release way before.

I renewed mine on Friday when I picked Borderlands 2 and all I did was printed the paper from the preorder machine that they have. I got an email today saying that I successfully renewed my subscription til 9/21/2013.

I hope it doesn't cause any problems with the $20 RZ bonus, since I was still GCU when I preordered.

I don't know if you've heard but you're thinking of the shooter XCOM no subtitle. It's been stuck in development hell for a while and I'll be surprised if it comes out and even more it it's of any quality, but who knows. Maybe Enemy Unknown will build up some brand equity. That would be cool. This game deserves it.

It is supposed to say "Exchange" on top of the receipt instead of "Return." You are probably gonna have to call best buy in 30 days have the points dont show. And the two gamers club accounts will also be a problem.


it says "exchange" at the top, but then next to the borderlands 2 preorder it says "return" and $5 credit

is this what it's supposed to say?

I should get my $20 from the BL2 preorder in a few weeks.

The only question is what to use it for.
Should I add some MS points to buy the BL2 season pass, or use it on a preorder for Dishonored?

How do you properly renew gamers club unlocked?

If there's no form attached to your mag in the mail just goto the store & either use the subscription printout from the kiosk or the barcode from the booklets in-store. Give them your RZ card on the same receipt & it will just extend you current sub they may ask you to confirm so info that's all. MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR FREE COPY OF THE MAG TOO just have them scan the mag on the same receipt & it'll ring up free.

Hope they can sustain this level of hot deals :hot:

If you're enjoying the credit promos continue to suggest titles that need credit deals here, although they won't be added to this specific promo the consistant request will open BB's eyes to add promos for other titles. There's only 67 votes to get $20 credits added to more games gotta get that up over 100 vote people.
And it isn't just limited to day 1, there's the $20-$30 RZ offers & @gamer coupons that can come into play which will help those who have backlogs to get thru.

you do realize nba 2k13 and re 6 has not yet being released right? you cannot use the coupon on preorders

I answered this in another thread, his strategy will work. You have to pre-order the games like normal but just purchase the titles using the b2g1 coupons. Try to make sure the free game isn't one you need for a $20 credit but you should still be able to get the credit even if it's the free one but you may have to call/pm the forums mods. After you receive the $20 credits either transfer the $5 pre-orders to other titles,

Borderlands 2 already appeared on mine and my fiance's accounts, I wish Hitman was a part of the deal, guess I can use my lamestop points to get 25 off of it.

My borderlands 2 points already posted. I woke up to a $20 GC. Hopefully you all have the same.

Backlog? What backlog?

That seems to be a wise decision. All my future pre-orders will definitely be done online with in-store pickup, if I go with BB again.

My Borderlands 2 points still aren't even pending.

Does anyone know how to move a pre-order to a different game or purchase? I pre-ordered the regular version of Halo 4 accidentally, and while I was at BB recently I went ahead and pre-ordered the limited version (didn't have my reciept with me.) How can I move the pre-order for the regular version to something differnt (or get a refund on it?) And I somehow forgot to get the poster on BOTH pre-orders. Totally walked out without it.

On another note, my RZ points for pre-ordering Borderlands are not showing up. Borderlands has shown up (it looks weird though - its saying I only paid $4 for it, therefore I'm only getting 8 points for it with the GC double credit.) I'm guessing this means I'll need to be calling RZ customer service since I doubt the 1000 points is going to show up at this point...

Go up to CS and cancel it. Or go up to CS with a different preorder slip and say you want to cancel one and use the money to preorder another.

Heh, this seems way to easy. I see my local BB customer service head exploding when I ask them to do this (I love the gaming rep at my store, but the CS desk there is probably the most atrocious I've seen outside of a Wal Mart - and some of those WM CS desks put my BB CS to shame.)

For 49.99? You could have price matched Target for that same price two weeks ago. You got lucky for Frys to have a sale.

Yeah, I didn't see that sale. On another note, I asked the rep if I paid with both gift cards and reward zone certificates what would happen. They said as long as I paid some of it with a gift card, the pricematch would be a gift card sent to me. Is that how it works? Should the amount of the gift card I used be at least the pricematch amount?

Did you ask they send a new gift card to you? If not you have a gift card out there now floating with 10 extra dollars on it. They will put it right back on the gift card you used.
