I've never played a Call of Duty game, but it can't hurt to try.
Is there a certain one I should play first before jumping into these two?


when its come first person shooter games, it does not matter, unless you are planning to play it for the single player only. most ppl who buy call of duty games, play it for the multiplayer online experience.

If that second set of coupons is true.....looks like I have to re-up my subscription now.

Mine lapsed a few days ago and I was just going to sit it out for a few but I'd like that 3ds KH coupon & the $10 off used as there is a game I'd pick up.

So....how do I handle re-upping to get everything?

If you're playing for the story, play COD4->MW2->MW3. Black Ops has its own story

Just go to the gaming area and sign up exactly like you did the first time. There isnt a special way to do it for resubscribing that I know of yet.

Will I receive a new welcome packet and everything?

I never actually signed up in store.....BB sent me of the first few issues of the magazine and I mailed in the card to subscribe.

Around a year later I got a letter in the mail informing me I was going to receive an additional year subscription and become GCU for free.

I haven't payed for the magazine since that initial payment by mail.

So just go to the Gamer Desk and sign up....will I be given a copy of the new mag on the spot? What about welcome packet (I never got one the first time)? And do I have to pay/sign up for GCU?

Any help is appreciated as I haven't had to bother with this in quite a while.

EDIT:

I just got on the @Gamer customer service website and put in my account # info to log in...it says my subscription doesn't expire until November 2012 which means I have two months left. But it's not showing me as a GCU member?

How do I go about fixing that issue?

Yes it is unreasonable. You know why? Cause everyone is different. What appealed to you last month might not appeal to someone who is psyched about this month.

You expect to be a focus group of one. That's not possible. Also CAG isn't the entire game buying universe.

Do you think that I think everyone who buys games in the world is a CAG? I hope not.

So you do not think they can offer more "blanket" deals that cover wide swaths of stock? Maybe some coupons for used games, more for digital titles, a percentage off accesories... and that is me just thinking off the top of my head. I think they can. I guess we will have to agree to disagree. I hope I'm not offending you by suggesting they could have better deals, I don't want you to take my thoughts on the deals personally.

Edit: I don't think I should have to say this, but I don't mean a 100 percent satisfaction rate among 100 percent of subscribers. I mean working towards that and trying their best to get as close to that each month a they can. A 100 percent satisfaction rate among 75 percent of subscribers would be better to me than a 50 percent satisfaction rate among 100 percent of subscribers, and I think this is something they can reasonably acheive by keeping an ear to the ground with sites like ours and gamers in general through things like surveys of purchase trend charts, or whatever else.

As far as mentioning CAG, I was talking about the deals in relation to CAG and how the average user here would percieve a CoD sale, when I assume most people here probably already own the games they want to own. I do think however that even outside of this site the majority of people who want a CoD title have probably already gotten it, and a lot of those within the first 3 months whatever title was out. In regards to my last paragraph, it is my personal opinion that instead of trying to appeal to a comparably small amount of people (those who don't have the CoD titles listed, whose hurdle was waiting for the price to go down, who are also GCU members), they could easily cover a more broad spectrum to please more people.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

The guys back in the gaming department "should" know everything to do.

Yeah just go to the gaming desk and they'll scan a brochure for the GCU membership. Its $14.99 that you'll need to pay right then. You also get a current issue of the mag when you sign up. I dont know if anyone that has renewed has recieved another welcome packet yet since we've just been starting the first of the renewals but I think I remember reading on here that we do get another welcome packet.

i don't see how they can be real

the old coupons don't end until 10/5 coupons have never overlapped


Yeah. Didn't, even, think about that.

2 batches of coupons this month! Here are the coupons for the Oct. issue:

$10 off Dead Island GOTY
$15 off Sleeping Dogs
$10 off Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance
$10 off Angry Birds Trilogy (all systems)
$20 off F1 (doesn't say what year, assuming the new one)
$30 off Triton Warhead headset
$20 off Razer Naga Mouse
$10 off 1 preowned game $29.99 and up.


Well, there's SOMETHING in that batch, at least, that would interest me. Angry Birds Trilogy.

Possibly, a $10 F1, lol.

I like the pacing of Modern Warfare 1 & 2. The missions feel more polished, you feel more integrated into the action (where your teammates seem quite competent when they fight; unlike Modern Warfare 3, where you could have one enemy remaining in a section, and it's apparent your teammates deliberately miss), and it's less rail shooter-y (it's not a constant push towards one destination after another; you might go into a house, leave, and then come back to it).

Why can't every month be a winner? Do you think it is out of line for someone to expect that?


Absolutely.

So you do not think they can offer more "blanket" deals that cover wide swaths of stock? Maybe some coupons for used games, more for digital titles, a percentage off accesories... and that is me just thinking off the top of my head. I think they can. I guess we will have to agree to disagree. I hope I'm not offending you by suggesting they could have better deals, I don't want you to take my thoughts on the deals personally.


Every single one of those coupons would be worthless to me. What appeals to you does not appeal to everyone. Furthermore, there is usually a reason for a coupon for a particular game. Offering money off any game would be ridiculous from Best Buy's point of view. Most people would probably use it on brand new games that Best Buy knows they could have sold for full price anyways.

Nothing for me AGAIN. That's 2 months in a row. The only time I got to use some coupons was when I signed up in late July, and picked up Kingdom of Amalur for $10 and COD: MW3 for $20 at the same time. Looks like I signed up too late for the Reward Zone gimmicks. When they first started in March/April or so there were a ton of awesome deals for around $10. Not any more it looks like. I'm pretty disappointed that I signed up and paid money for the subscription. As it stands now, I'm definitely NOT going to resubscribe when my subscription runs out. :shame:

I think it's perfectly plausible for better deals to come back, maybe not this next month, but the magazine gives them the option to clear out any new games that haven't sold particularly well or to do a flash sale on older games they need to clear out for space requirements. I wouldn't entirely count out @Gamer just yet ...

Of course, that was just one example, but those types of deals would be worthwile to a larger variety of people. And I'm not saying just have those, just throw those in so everybody is happy. My crude percentage scenario (I don't know if you read it) describes exactly what I mean.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Right, we're coming up on the biggest release time of the year. BB will overstock lots of those titles, meaning they will need to clear out that stock eventually. Dont write of Gamer yet.

You guys should just do the 2 for 40 on Kingdom Hearts 3DS right now at Toys R Us. You can trade the extra copy into Best Buy for $30.

So this is an in-store only deal? I can't seem to find it online. Is there a flyer or something I can show the Toys R Us guys?

Too bad they wouldn't do a $20 off Battlefield Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition, since that comes with the VIP maps, the DLC voucher for BF1943(which I could give to my one buddies nephew) and I think some other stuff.

I just noticed they had 3-4 copies of that in stock today.

By the way, for those still hoping to use the :ps3:Battlefield 3 coupon for this month to get the game for $10, you might want to recheck your local BB stores. Mine had in 3-5 copies of the vanilla edition today.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.
