Not overly interested in what is shown in the ad, but as usual with sales like this, I will likely find 2-3 titles I want in the full sale.

Best Buy has 2012 on lock.

how is AC: Revelations compared to AC: 2 and Brotherhood?

Gameplay is just as good as 2 and brotherhood (except that stupid tower defense thing) but the story was absolute shit ! I mean sure you get closure to the etzio and altier stories but nothing progresses with desmond at all ! All you find out with him is where he and the rest of his team have to go to next, lame

I've asked this of other people before and never gotten a full answer or at least one that gives me what I want.

I've tried Assassin's Creed 1. I can't get into it. At all. After three re-buys and picking up where I am and such, I still can't get myself to play through it. Is it worth skipping and just playing 2 after reading spoilers? My friend said that was probably the route for me to go because the gameplay/story really is that much better in 2. Plus, I really wouldn't mind killing Redcoats in 3...

I paid $14.99 for a used copy of Gears of War 3, $19.99 for FF XIII-2 at GameStop which has no Novella, $11.99 for Just Dance 3, $17.99 for RE: ORC, $5.99 for Steel Diver, and $14.99 for Metroid: The Other M. I really need to be more patient when it comes to game purchses. Fortunately, I can still get Madden 12 for $9.99 as I missed that deal when Best Buy first offered it for that price.

Honestly, the deals you got were probably fine. I paid 35 for GoW3, still haven't played it, and full price for FFXIII-2.

Ac1 is such a skip it's not funny. The find 3 clues, talk to assassin hideout, rinse and repeat gets so boring it's a chore. Skip to 2, read a synopsis and move on.
I was looking for a website for ass gaming, but I found this one instead.

Then I guess it's time to find a deal on 2 and Brotherhood then...

Can anyone confirm whether or not AC:R is only for PS3? Would be a great purchase at 10 bucks.

In every copy I've seen when picking it up and putting it back down, it says that it's included.

Looks like I might be in for AC. And I definitely need to go unload Madden 12 while I can still get almost $10 (should be 9.60)

Not a bad way for someone to turn their $10 promo code into a gift card that doesn't expire if that TIV holds

.skip part 1 and read the spoilers (1 is garbage compaired to the others)
.play 2 and brotherhood asap !!!!
.revelations isn't needed as it doesn't provide much in terms of story for desmond but it ties up altier and etzio plus It's great filler till part 3 comes out :)

in for socom 4. that seems to be the lowest for that game so far i think... unless it becomes free in PSN for Plus subscribers anytime soon... then that price is good enough for me.

Ha, thanks. I'm grabbing Revelations since it'll be cheap. I'm just gonna get my hands on the others from GS maybe since I have some credit and I think they're doing a deal for PUR this week.

I guess I'll preorder 3 while I'm there so I can still get the steelbook(assuming they still have some).

I hope this is available online too since I'll be out of town all week. Hoping for both the $5 Steel Diver and maybe a $5 Pilotwings to go with my soon-to-be-acquired 3DS XL.

I believe so. Why would you get 3 of those though? You could get three different games at 10 bucks a pop!

Because the other 10 dollar titles are just "meh" to me at most. I am hoping to get 3 of those games, and give 2 away as upcoming birthday gifts to play online.

Getting AC:R for sure, mad i didnt grab it last time for 10$, and i finally got my hands on Brotherhood+DLC on PSN.

Not sure if i want Gear's 3 though.....game has so much DLC now....

On a side note, i whole heartedly suggest anyone to buy Sims 3 Pets for this price. I didnt like the series till i played Sims 3 on PS3, now i love the series and Sims 3 Pets is amazing.

I went the other way, started with MK then Rayman and now I'm on Uncharted. While the chapters are short at times, the game is awesome. Can't get over how good it looks, the sound, and fun gameplay.

It'll be YMMV. Only first-run PS3 copies of AC:R include AC1. And while it's on-disc, you'll need to disc in the drive to play it.
