That sucks, did you contact them on their forums yet? They're still sending out codes to people who didn't get one.

What's the deal with these reward certificates? Was I supposed to get one when I picked up my order, cause I picked up re6 yesterday and got nothing? Also was there supposed to be pre order dlc that I didn't get? If I don't get the 20 dollar reward certificate I'll just go back and return the game and pick it up later. Dumb.

Did you even read the OP? It takes around 30 days for reward zone points to show up in your account. Sometimes it can come faster, but patience is your best friend when it comes to waiting for your $20 cert.

I'm also shocked like the poster above me that someone using this site since 2006 didn't even bother to read the OP.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Getting the DLC code for my in-store pickup of NBA2K13 was a nightmare. I was in there for over an hour, shuffled between 6 different employees, all AFTER I got the game in my hand because the store was so understaffed that not the employees had to keep changing areas and registers to keep up that day. Eventually, I finally ran into someone who actually knew what to do so I could get the DLC printed on my receipt. I don't know if I'll ever do this kind of pre-order from Best Buy again.

It's the All star bonus mode. Can play as legends/current players in the 3 point shoot out and dunk contest. Play the rookie game and then the east vs. west all in the Houston arena if I remember correctly.

Pre-ordered online on Monday afternoon. It was too late to pre-order in store according to a BB employee.

$10 code expired a long time ago and AC3 comes out around a month later so its hit or miss.

Yea I knew what it was but i'm confused as to why 2 codes and think one may be different....

Yesterday I got what you described:

"Nba 2K13 Allstar Preorder Bonus Dlc - Xbox 360 [Digital Download Add-On]"

Today:

"
NBA2K 13 - Preorder Bonus"



Guess i'll punch the code in when I get off work and see what the remdemption summary says.

my problem with this deal is

1. inconsistency, some people are already getting their credit.
2. it's been 2 weeks - waiting 30 days for anything to be electonically delivered is bull...

defeats the whole purpose of this preorder deal in my eyes. and that was to use it towards another new release purchase, and roll it over to the next.

by that time i get the credit - let's be honest the game's price will drop online for $30 or less. + i would've beaten it and moved on by then, and you'll be stuck on another game credit train like "kmart" had a while back.

look - i just want my rzone credit and no one gets hurt...

People are getting them early because they are getting them from the date they preordered it on, not the pick up date. So I preordered mine Borderlands 2 on 9/1 and got my 1000 points on 10/2, unfortunately I preordered RE6 on 9/1 too, picked it up 10/2 on release and have my points pending right now, if I get them early great, if not, no big deal. You do not need to roll every cert from one game to the immediate next one out. I am still able to use them on something I was going to get anyways, such as my RE6 and Dishonored points will go towards BLOPS 2 or Halo 4 and I would pay $40 less for it.

edit: also if the price drops within 30 days (60 days for silver members) one can PM it to another store and get that $30 price tag anyways.

If you don't like the terms of the deal, than don't take part of the deal. No one's forcing you to prorder at BB.

Re6 doesnt totally suck but its not the 9.1 I thought it would be. Camera is bad, ammo is almost non existent, and worse of all you cant pause the game.

BTW the begg. to chapter 2 of jake's story was some of the most frustrating gameplay Ive had since my playthrough of ninja gaiden 3.

So it is basically the first Resident Evil? That was a great game, but I believe it had all 3 of those problems.

You can pause if you choose to play in Offline Mode when starting the game. I agree with your other two points though. They obviously want it to be an action game first but fail to give out ammo while the enemies take quite a few bullets to kill. I also HATE, HATE, HATE getting locked in a room filled with enemies with these clunky ass controls and camera. The cover system sucks too. Why not just copy Gears' or Uncharted's cover mechanics? No manual with limited tutorials doesn't help either. Biggest disappointment of the year to me so far.

Well I on the other hand am thoroughly enjoying it, and I've only nicked the surface of the game. I'm enjoying the variety in characters and how they fight, the skill system is pretty neat, and I love the fact they added that Demon's Souls esqe invading system.

Sure the game has its little flaws like the camera panning off to show a POI while enemies sucker punch you, but overall, this is a very polished game. And even WITH its flaws, the game is worthy of at LEAST an 8/10.

Seems a lot of people are having trouble with the dodge dive and slide moves but I'm finding them to be second nature for me.

Just played the first boss battle on Jake's first chapter and I was sliding and rolling out the woodwork almost shocked at myself for my fast maneuvering, and in the end didn't even take a hit because of my evading.

Game is well worth the price for the content given, IMHO..

The skill system is ok but I much prefer the weapon upgrades in RE5. It felt way more satisfying to build each weapon up then just put 3 points into the Firearm skill.

A big problem with the dodge dive is that you are not aware it exists unless you stumble on it or happen to catch the loading screen telling you about it. I'd also rather have it be one button or a double tap instead of LT+A. Same with the cover system I talked about before...they both just feel clunky. Anyway, why they didn't include a manual for a game with so much going on is beyond me. It's ok for something like CoD where you basically point and shoot but I think there's way too much going on in RE6 to basically force customers to hit the web or, what I'm sure Capcom hopes, buy the strategy guide.

I will agree that there is a ton of content in the game. Been hearing you tread familiar ground several times though.

I'm glad you guys are posting your opinions on RE6. Now I know to start with Ada's story first. I don't want to start with Jakes,get pissed,then want to trade the game in ASAP.

I heard Leon's is the best so I'm probably going to sacs that for last.

I'm wondering,if I do Ada's story,Then go to Jakes and get pissed half way,can I go to Leon's? Or do I have to complete Jakes fully before I can go to Leon's story?

You can only do Ada's after you've beaten the other 3. You can switch off between the unlocked campaigns though. I played 3 chapters with Leon then started Chris' campaign. Just do chapter select from the menu instead of continue.
