Well you cant play ME1 on Xbox, and since I think its the best of the 3 I recommend starting on 360 so that you can play through all 3 and have custom imports.


ME1 is unavailable on PS3. It can be bought for xbox 360 or on Live

I want lollipop chainsaw, mass effect 3 at $20, and prototype 2 at $10, sucks about the used coupon because I wanted mass efct 2, and assassn's creed brotherhood but I may just try to get those with b2g1 tomorrow. U guys recommend I play mass effect 1 as well? And which system ps3 or Xbox?


Have you played ME2? If so, just get ME3 on whichever system you play 2 on. Personally I would play the first 2 but it isn't necessary.

Never played the first Prototype and not huge on what I've seen of 2, so if that hits $10 I may debate it if I have some extra time to test it out and then trade it in to GS during a Promo if I don't like it.

Would love to pick up Lollipop for $10 though.

ME1 is only on Xbox. I would easily recommend you play it, as I hated the second one. A big group of other people actually liked ME2, so you might too.

This part makes P2 worth 20 bucks alone.


That was awesome.

Prototype 2 is an interesting situation, in that it is currently at a TIV of $9.
So you would get $18 back for it if you didn't like it. With the coupon it would only cost you $20 initially.
So, do you treat it as a $2 rental, or do you gamble that it will drop even more?

I would think that if you did buy it now, and it dropped during the month, you SHOULD get a price adjustment even though you used a coupon. I don't see how using a coupon would make a difference.
However I've never tried it, nor do I know anyone that has.

FWIW, I've tried this twice (when I first started using the coupons and didn't really know any better) and the result depends on the store manager's policy and how closely the CS rep follows it. First time I tried to price adjust a game after using a coupon, the CS rep wouldn't re-apply the coupon and said that their manager was very clear not to allow it. Later that week, I went to a different store and figured I'd try again. CS rep here looked a little confused when I asked, but she asked somebody to bring over a magazine and did a return/rebuy for me. I'd hold off on using the coupon just to be on the safe side, unless you really need however much cash you're saving with it right away.

Price matching will not work automatically with coupons. It is a system restriction to not allow any coupons with a price match. The only way around this is manager approval or you can do a return and rebuy(Only do this if you are okay with buying P2 or Lolipop for $20, cause they will take your coupon and you won't be able to return and rebuy at a lower price without using the coupon).

If your hoping to snag P2 or Lolipop for $15 or less your going to have to wait until a sale comes unless you have an easy manager in your store to work with.

I'd grab Prototype 2 if it goes on sale. Might get Battlefield 3 as well. I already have it, but a second copy for my brother for $10 is pretty good.

Quick question regarding welcome coupons. One coupon says buy two get one free new games valued up to $39.99. Does this mean that all three games must be below $39.99 or only the free one?

Just the free one. The lowest of the three will be free as long as its under that $40 price.

You should get an email with the title something like, "July/September/October/etc @Gamer Magazine Available" and in that email there is a link to the coupons where you can print them.

My last month is September 2012. If I wait and re-up after my subscription officially ends, will I get the welcome packet and b2g1free coupon again. Or will I not receive anything regardless.

For anyone that has had to renew a subscription, how does it work?
Mine runs out in Oct. Do you have to do it in store or can you do it through the website? I wouldn't mind doing it a month early just so there's no interruption of service.
Thanks!

I went to a cashier and told them I wanted to renew my unlocked membership. Gave them my info and they said it should be added onto my account. I don't see any changes to my expiration yet, but I only did it yesterday so I'll give it a few more weeks if I have to.

Question: I am not a subscriber to @Gamer, and I'm not a "unlocked" reward zone member or whatever its called. With the additional cost of being "unlocked" as well as buying this issue of the mag, will it still be worth it if all I want is Prototype 2?

The "unlocked" membership only costs $15 and comes with the magazine for the current month for free and a year subscription of it. So for an extra $10 ($15 total for membership)
You get
-the coupons for current month and more to come!
-10% bonus to trades
-10% off used games
-welcome pack coupons
-year subscription to magazine
- special offers for gamer's club members only on game deals (currently max payne $30 off (other expired offers have been $50 off ps3 console, $35 newer zelda game, and some other good deals)
-$20 gift certificate's for preordering certain games and picking them up within a week of release (resident evil 6, black ops 2, nba 2k13, halo 4, and others)

It's your choice, but with the potential for savings most people recommend it! I doubt you'll find many people (if any) that aren't satisfied with being an unlocked member!
