Yeah, that drove me nuts also. I'm mainly into stuff like Borderlands, Batman, Left 4 Dead, Resident Evil, etc etc. I don't even play any of the COD games anymore because they have got so old and repetitive. Not to mention the fact they have milked the hell out of the community with all the DLC and Elite stuff.

Wanted to thank the OP again for reminding me to make another trip to Best Buy :D
So glad I waited on Mass Effect 3 especially since I probably would have put it in the back log when it came out.
I'll play arrival tonight then onto 3 :)

I also hated Darksiders, thats why when TRU had the $30 for DSII & Sleeping Dogs I just couldn't bite, even if I knew I could probably sell DSII.

As for ME goes, goodluck IATCG, if you do intend to beat ME2-3 during two days, be prepared to not sleep! Haha, or maybe you -could- beat them if you play on the easiest difficulty, but damn dude you really do live up to your name. Those games are two that I would def NOT rush since there's a whole lot of content.

I really don't care about extra content, as I usually only play games just for the main storyline anymore and skip side missions.

I've actually found myself playing a TON of BF1943 as of late and that is kind of shocking, since I normally can't stand FPS titles.

Then again, I play it more like GTA now and kamikaze everyone when trying for kills. LOL

So I ended up trading in 50 of the PS2 games I picked up at Gamestop 10 for $1 sale for $27.50 in Bestbuy credit and picked up Mass Effect 3 and Battlefield 3 using the coupons. Had to buy a magazine because I never received my Sept one to begin with, but it's all good to me. Traded in some sh!t to below average games to get two decent titles for the PS3.

Did you trade them all with the envelope that they give you? And is every ps2 game worth 25 cents at best buy?

There are some PS2 titles that're worth slightly more, but I can't think of any offhand.

I went back to my local Best Buy and saw another :ps3: ME3 CE on the shelf. I had grabbed the only one they had 2 days ago. I had to grab it even though I had to pay $5 for another magazine. I didn't notice until I got home though that it had a floater disk. I guess that's the one I'll be opening.

Actually I haven't. I'm deciding if I want to play through it by checking out videos. If I see a lot of menu navigation and other non gameplay crap then it's likely being traded tomorrow.

in case videos don't show, me3 also has action/story modes to play through. the action mode plays out everything for you(conversation decisions, skills, ect) to where it's pretty much only cutscenes. story mode lets you choose the conversation decisions, but plays the rest for you. don't really remember the equipment loadouts, but i don't think that was too involved. just a heads up, should be a quick playthrough especially if skipping side quests and extra convos.

In case you guys don't find the ME3 CE in stock at your local BBY, it seems to be in stock in their warehouse. They offered to do an in store order for me (its called OMS i think) and I was able to still use the coupon and it's going to get sent to the store, since they were all out of CE.

adjusted the price today on the ME3:CE that I bought on 8/11. $30, minus the $20 coupon, and I had a $10 Gift Card, so i paid 61 cents out of pocket

I don't get why so many people are on the fence about Lollipop Chainsaw for $20. If nothing else you could buy it, play it for a few days, and trade it in to get all your money back plus you'd get credit for the purchase and trade on your reward zone card. The game trades at $10, doubled to $20, and the extra 10% makes it $21. If you're even slightly interested in it it's worth getting now.

That's assuming the TIV doesn't dip by the time I finish it, which is difficult since with limited free time, I'd rather play borderlands 2 with the Mrs.

And trips to BBY is time and gas coming into the equation....might as well get it at $10 sometime and have no pressure in beating it.

I said...oh...well...then I'd like to return the game. He asked my "why?" and I told him "well, I'll return the game and get my $30 back...and then use another coupon and re-buy the game and it will be $20, so I'll get my $10 back that way." (my friend had a coupon he wasn't going to use). The employee looked at me and told me he would not allow me to return the game or purchase another one and then asked me to leave the store.


Next time tell him you'd like to return it out of spite, there's no way he can refuse that...

I'm really enjoying Lollipop Chainsaw so far. It's the most fun I've had with a SUDA51 game and might actually finish this one. (didn't finish Killer7 or SoTD but enjoyed them a bit). I like the fact that I'm not thinking "what exactly is going on here???" 75% of the time.

These are the highest valued PS2 game TIVs at BB(all base value):

Battle Engine Aquila-$1
EyeToy AntiGrav-$1
Final Fantasy XI-$1
The Dog Island-$0.50


I guess that's what I'm going to do then.


If the 100% is extended, it 'could' go up in TIV after the sale.

If your membership isn't due before then, why not wait?

You're Welcome and no, there are all types of games in that sale(what's left of them, lol). People have all kinds of lists throughout that thread.

Yeah I guess, I'm just nervous I'll end having to pay the full price if there is no deal. My friend did tell me that he snagged four 3-month subs for $7 bucks each at best buy during black Friday but I said no way they would sell those for so cheap, can anyone confirm this by any chance?

It could. Or it could go down even further. Either way, I'm likely getting rid of my copy of BF3 I finished as well. So between the two I've broke even on them.:) Not to mention I'm gonna be at BB today anyway for an interview, so might as well kill some time before they call me in. :D

Yes, I'm too lazy to check for the exact amount, but I think they were $8. You can search for the Black Friday thread from last year for confirmation.

Yeah, I actually took IATCG's advice and picked up Lollipop. I have so much credit at Best Buy that I figured it wouldn't hurt.

Anyway, I'll definitely be trading it back to them on Saturday, lol. The gameplay is appallingly simple and one dimensional. The story and dialogue are hardly funny. I "get it" ...but, still, I "don't get" what all the fucking hype is about. This game should have been a $10 digital download at best. Just to give people an idea: I've played it for about 2 hours and already, I'm 2 levels away from completion (out of a of total 5). You could beat this in one sitting! For those who go for all the trophies/achievements, I'm not sure how long it'd take to do that. And I suppose there's a little replay value with leaderboards, collectibles and difficulty hikes (which, again, likely have corresponding trophies)...but, meh, I'm done once I beat the final boss.
