The level cap increase in Borderlands 2 is coming soon if you want to hold out a little bit longer.

Well that completely contradicts the article I linked, haha. Oh well, I definitely got my money's worth out of BL2 and all it's DLC so far.

It was my GOTY as my friends and I played it alot and thought season pass was an easy decision. The first DLC was good, but the second was weak and didn't touch the third as I wanted a level increase. I got my money's worth with $20 cert, but feel I got ripped off with the season pass. They should have known it would break the game with a level increase not lead us on.

I have never not regretted a season pass. Gears 3, Mortal Kombat, MW3 and those weren't even terrible ones --Max Payne 3 season pass anyone?.

Mmmm I haven't heard of this, how did it break the game?

Never mind I just read the article. It does make sense though. From a programming stand point, there are just things you can't do without breaking either the whole architecture or pushing the system to hard. Though it makes me wonder how it worked in BL1, since I didn't play that one (and now I really want to) did you guys the level increase affected the game at all?

The first wasn't as high tech. It was a surprise hit so they probably had more room for improvement with DLC and level increase. Still the 2nd was a triple AAA title with high expectations and they delivered. Every interview I heard there was going to be a level increase now it will break the game come on. I guess eventually they might figure it out, but I'll trade it in while it still has value.

It appears as though I have joined the ranks of the elite. I logged in to my Rewards account and on my account page, next to Certificates, it says Status and it says Premier Silver Status. I don't think I did anything to earn it, but I got it. Who knows, maybe after all the trading I did, I got the 2500 points to get Silver Status.

I think people are missing the fact that there is usually a bar below where it says Premier Silver Status that shows how close you are to getting it for the year and that is not there atm and instead says "Your recent transactions may be delayed through 2/23. Learn more."

In fact, that is exactly the case cause a 2nd account a made just for the reward zone poll also says it has silver status if you are looking at it like that, lol.

Traded in Far Cry 3 for $29.40 while it still has value. Picked it up for $30 used with a unused online pass so it was really worth it. Great game.

well Dead Space 3 is up $18 base($37.80 w/GCU) same for Aliens Colonial Marines. I can deal with that for new releases. With tax i'm only paying $4.58 per game can't be that anywhere.

edit:keep in mind the base should rise when it's a 50% bonus so $22-$24 base most likely.

For whatever reason PS3 exclusives generally don't see high TIV's & DmC had a release week promo w/RE6 & it seems they don't give full value for titles included in deals.

Don't forget any pricematching. Even at $50, you'll be paid to play.

Wish I had paid attention to see Aliens was $18 base. Definitely wouldn't mind checking it out for under $5. I think the game will drop during the first 2 months for a PM, but it's too late for the $20 GCU preorder. Oh well.

That's based on a $39.99 pm($42.XX w/tax) minus the $37.XX.
Now Gears(I don't have a 360) I'll just unload to my craiglist regs. for $50 cash so $40 pm is just sweet there. And a GS manager that works right across the street from BB is gonna pay me $50 cash for bioshock since it's cheaper than his GS discount w/tax. LOL

don't feel bad aliens isn't a $20 pre-order game best you can do would be a YMMV kmart $15 gaming coupon pm which would mean they'd either deduct $15 off the $60 on the spot or take $15 off & "charge" you for a $15 BB GC either a which you do have a chance to try. I'd say call the store 1st unless your close to a BB since I've only got this match once ever & that was b/c of the # of people who stated they got their BB's to match it. The only $20 game you missed is Dead Sapce 3 so there's 12 more games that are still play, fact in the close release dats from now untill the end of March tons of the games will be on sale faster than during X-mas. There's no X-mas sales boost or black Friday sales boost for them to hold the price for so sales must come.

Oh, I thought you were factoring in the $20 cert, not a PM. The cert+$40 PM would pay you $15 to play it, LOL

Hrm, looks like after I dust off my Ni No Kuni plat tomorrow I'll start focusing on playing through DS3 so I can flip it this week. Well, either playing through it or flipping it beforehand if it doesn't grab me soon.

Tempted to grab Revengeance next week now if it looks like it will have a $18 base as well.

The first couple chapters of Dead Space 3 probably won't grab you. Weakest start in the series but it gets better.

I'm actually quite content with a $37.80 trade in value.

Works out as such for me so far (with no price adjustments yet): $60 (giftcard) to buy Dead Space 3 + Free Dead Space 3 guide (TRU match), + $20 RZ Certificate plus $37.80 trade in means that so far I got DS3 and the guide for roughly $2.20 before tax. Almost forgot, plus I got 120 RZ points for purchasing it (60x2 for GCU), plus I'll get another 36 for trading it in (so 156 RZ points total) and a total of $78 towards my next year's silver status. Trying to sell the guide for around $10 on eBay and even a $10 price adjustment will put me well in the black on this one. :)

$18 base is pretty good. $20 cert so basically done to $40 then potential price match with a chance to get them to pay you to play like before.

Sometimes it does give you some points, sometimes it doesn't give any. I think you're not supposed to get any, but the system sucks anyways.

Darn, I didn't know about the TRU guide sale though..

Are you guys really that worried about extremely minor trade-in differences from a few days? I would be happy to get the original value if it's good instead of risking it go down.

I support Rozz 100%.
