that would be too epic. I might have had a stroke and died. I've already given up and am ready for $60 darksiders 2.

Too bad you're in the East coast because Fry's have it for $49.99.

Your other option to get Darksiders 2 cheap is to order it online and do a store pickup from Best Buy and get a $10 GC.

Considering how big Darksiders 2 is supposed to be, the guide doesn't sound like the worst thing ever - but I'm not sure it's enough to entice me over Fry's $50 price.

I've been waiting for Spidey to drop to. :bouncy:


I picked it up for $40 off of Craigslist a while ago, finally beat it yesterday on Super Hero Mode (Hardest mode, which I recommend playing it on from the start) According to the in-game clock it took me around 10 hours. 700/1000G. Fun game. And there's A LOOOOOT of collecting/side missions to do. I'd imagine there's another 5-10 hours doing all of the other stuff on top of the 10 hour main story.

So it's one of the few good, movie licensed games? Will definitely keep an eye out on this one.

Man, I nearly freaked when I saw LEGO Batman 2 for $18 - then I saw the DS logo. :cry:

That's what I thought to.
Havn't enjoyed a lego game until Lego Batman 2, played the demo and I had so much fun.

I just got texted a $5 off coupon any purchase at TRU. Here are the details from the coupon. It doesn't say videogames excluded so I'm guessing it's good. It even says I can respond with a friends cell number to share the coupon. I guess each coupon is individually generated and is good for ONE time use. Here's the coupon details:

dont know if the ad says there are more games on sale than what is listed, but i was just there and Metal Gear Solid HD collection for Playstation Vita was on sale for $29. might want to ad it to the OP. It was a sale price not a temporary price cut or anything like that.

That's the bat-a-rang controller that's on sale at Best Buy for $20.
If you can get it for $30, it would be a good deal.

Yep. I enjoyed it. It's not GOTY or anything, but if you like Spiderman and finally want a decent Spiderman game, this is it. It's got a strong Arkham City feel to it, just Spiderman-based. They even make a few Batman references in the game.

Hmmmmm. Maybe I should get KHDDD, get the $10 GC and get MGS Vita for $60 total...

Gift cards can never be used on the qualifying purchase from my experience. Sometimes they will activate right away to be used on something else but TRUs GCs almost always have a 6 hour wait.

When I looked up Spec Ops on Kmart's website, it comes up as $59.99, not for $39.99 as listed in the OP. I called my local Kmart and they said the in-store price was $59.99 as well. What gives?

Edit: Well I did find the $39.99 price listed in the weekly circular, maybe the price hasn't been updated on the website on in-stores. I guess one can't have high expectations for Kmart...

I have a question - I pre-ordered Darksiders II at Best Buy for in-store pick-up to get the $10 GC and used a $30 RZGC (so it was $32.xx). Is it possible to PM TRU and get the guide for free as well, or will Best Buy have to re-ring everything up (voiding the $10 GC for pick-up and possibly the $30 RZGC) to add in the guide for free?

It sounds like they're two separate promotions. You choose one or the other. You can try whatever you want and hope for a stupid cashier and give them a hard enough time until they MIGHT do it though.....

It's BBY's official policy to not match offers that include a free gift with purchase. In your case, the strategy guide. You may have some luck, however.
