Boo! My FFIV just got cancelled....

On a better note, my $0.99 PSP headphones came in today. Look very decent, but no way would I have paid the $30 initial asking price.

Ended up getting NeverDead (360), Nicktoons MLB (360) and Tekken Hybrid (PS3).

Nicktoons MLB is a fantastic arcade style MLB game. If you were a fan of Nick shows growing up, you should have fun with it too. A lot of the characters are ones that I remember and I haven't watched Nickelodeon since I was 12/13 (10 years). There's not a lot of game modes or anything, but I've definitely gotten my $10 out of it.

Tekken Hybrid is a remake of Tekken Tag Tournament 1 with HD graphics. Its the exact same game, just prettier. That also means, unfortunately, there is no Online modes for it. $10 was the perfect price for this for me, a hardcore fighting game fan who has little to no Tekken experience.

I haven't played NeverDead, but I wanted it at $30 and waited, so $10 seemed like a decent price to me.

Grr! Couldn't get Deus Ex during 1.0, and neither one of these are currently at my local BB. Nice score, tho.

Well damn....

Checked my store even though inventory checker said no go on sunday and no Rayman, waited all week for it to come back in stock at BB.com....

Finally decided to head back over to my BB to get an ad so I could try to pricematch at target and noticed that they had one of those shelves in the middle of the isle like they did in the first blowout but wasnt there on sunday when I checked before and there sitting on the shelf was one last copy of Rayman for ps3....

Cant believe it was still there, score....

How does co-op on this game work? I think I read in the past it was poorly implemented somehow?


Co-op is not needed. Online co-op might still be active though. For local co op the camera system is an absolute mess.


Now playing
- Anything that strikes me as fun at the time.

Don't know much about the online, for local everything was smooth regarding co op aside from the camera issue. Once you enter local co op the camera is no longer adjustable and believe me its anooying as hell. For online, when someone is accessing the inventory, the ai will take over the actions so that the character will not appear as just standing there.

Mathematically Correct.
Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

Got an e-mail telling me my order for FFIV was cancelled, yet it's not listed as being cancelled in my order status. My other two items (Spirit Camera and Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2) haven't been cancelled, despite being on back order still.

Honestly, did the site only have like 1 copy of each game and seriously not prepare for this sale?

I hope you have an original PSP, I read those don't work on 2000 or 3000 and probably not Go.

Do you have a SKU #?


a friend picked it up for me and i do not have the receipt. I'll try to get a hold of him and get an SKU

That game doesn't come with a manual so nothing was missing.


Thanks. after i meantioned that i seen on the back it said go to such and such site and download it. I don't ever remember buying a game with out at least like a two page instruction thing. It threw me off a little.

I was going to hold out in-case that happened, but i ended up opening my PS3 copy. While i would of preferred it for Xbox I figured maybe it was a sign that i need to try more non exclusive games on it, and figured I'd have to make another trip, and hope it was still in stock there.

Try this one. 2758119
Was not able to get a hold of him, but i think i found it from the old best buy page url


From looking for the SKU it seems like it was on sale back around December of last year for $9.99 at Best Buy. Maybe some copies are still out on shelves that never got bought? Although i could not imagine it slipping by for 8 months. Thought they sent unsold stuff back after awhile, but i'm no expert at retail maybe they went unnoticed.


Hopefully that helps and you are able to track down a copy. I played the first few levels and have played 2017. They are neat games something a little different.

Edit again. I think the PS3 SKU is 2831033

Unfortunately the USPS likes to play hackey sack with some packages I think. So if anything I'd crack those games open and if they're messed up you'll have no other choice but to try returning/exchanging at a local BB store.


I swear my guys would play soccer with my packages for the longest time and just stuff them in the mailbox resulting in several cracked cases. :roll: I ended up having to call and ask them not to stuff things in my mailbox when they clearly didn't fit too well, I could usually see a corner of a package sticking out of a half closed mailbox.

Now they arrive placed nicely next to the door, and the new guy I enjoy giving him a drink on those hotter days. Kind of a like a thank you for not smashing my packages :lol:

Poor wallet, but I got some great deals, got rage, bulletstorm, rayman, the COD controller, two gamecube wireless controllers, and two headphone stands. All that was still less than the price of a brand new game. Great sale.

Guys is rayman really that good? I used to love donkey kong country and Mario, so I might give it a shot tomorrow since its the last day. I usually am into games with gore, graphics and murder and more murder but I do see myself shelling out $10 for rayman

I actually picked it up b/c it was cheap (and b/c of all the hype), but later returned it. I'm like you, into murder, horror, hack 'n slash action/RPG type games etc. Never been too fond of platformers, so I knew the game probably wouldn't get played very often if at all. To each their own, I suppose.

El Shaddai at 10$ is a buy for me.

Anyway I got my PS3 BLOPS controller and it is absolutely garbage. It lags constantly, drops connection every second, and the freaking L1 R1 buttons are mushier than baby food.

This thing is going back first thing in the morning.

Rayman Origins PS3

Rayman Origins Wii


Great. Would appreciate your feedback on which version is the best and why, and whether I should take a special trip tomorrow to pick up the PS3 version over the 360 and Wii versions.

(Yes, I know this requires opening and playing them all this morning, but it's your chance to give back to your fellow CAGs! :)

So who got DR2 successfully shipped and order it when the sale went live? because I didn't... and I was refreshing like crazy lol.... something is wrong here


Did anyone get their OTR shipped? Lol all I'm seeing so far are cancellations, add me to the list too. :P

There's a few available a hour away from here, but no way I'm driving out there just for one game.


If I said Yes, wouldn't that just make you feel worse?

Every BB tapped outta that by now, it was only one copy on sunday wen i went and i did it cause it wasnt online so noone could order cause a few people were there that morning. Driver 3, vanquish was on clearance and DS2 were the ones i bought, but lets just say i was able to get mine off the top like p diddy does with artists that leave bad boy lol

Ps3 version has stereo sound. 360 would be the winner i would assume.( I however have it ps3, so that's not a biased statement)

Ugh, the Blops controllers are terrible. Got two of each for each system.

The two for PS3 won't hold a charge, and one of them drops its signal every few minutes.

One 360 has a control pad that is not sensitive enough to pressure. The other one seems fine so far!

Seems like when i go i end up grabbing 5 or 6 10 dollar games because they are so cheap, and i can't pass up a video game for 10 dollars . I'm almost positive I'll get at least 10 dollars worth of enjoyment out of it. They always say something like that in store.

Wow you just got 6 new games for the price of one game. That's crazy


For some reason it always feels a little weird to me.
