Paid for crysis 3 entirely in gift cards. Between getting 20 back in PM and the rz cert, it only cost me 20!

Now will use that 40 to get tomb raider or metal gear rising once it goes on sale for 39.99

i decided to order regular edition of last of us, since it's suppose to include dlc that's also in the survival edition.


.. wait -- i don't see the dlc listed on bestbuy site, sony said the dlc will be for all pre-orders through any retailer, and bestbuy was one of them.

i hope to get the dlc

I wasn't able to price match Crysis 3 to Gamestop's 39.99 price, because they don't list it as the Hunter Edition. So I asked to match Amazon.com instead, as they have it for the same price and the picture shows the Hunter Edition.

So I can go into the store and get a price match for my crisis 3 tomorrow, since I bought it before March 2nd?

Yes. Seems like anyone that got anything ont he 19th wont show on the user end but shows on their end. I bought Game of Thrones season 2 on that same day ina different transaction and its not showing either but they told me that both of my items show as pending on their end.

So here's an interesting situation... pre-ordered both Crysis and MGR. Picked them up on the same day, together on one receipt.

Transaction is listed as pending. Detail shows base points (for both), unlocked double points (for both), and MGR bonus all pending, but not Crysis bonus. Anyone else pickup two pre-orders together and have a similar issue?


I picked up MGR and Crysis in the same transaction and my point details are the same as yours.


Glad to hear I'm not the only one. So here's the update, the transaction cleared out of pending last night. Got the MGR bonus, no bonus for Crysis.

Called and got my Crysis PMd. Now if only the 2/19 purchase and bonus points would show up.

FYI, Crysis 3 trade-in is $15 right now ($30 w/100% bonus). Now I gotta run over there and trade this turd in. So $10 out of pocket got me a copy of Crysis 1, $20 in certs, and the joy of playing this crappy ass game.

So I guess the reviews for GoW: Ascension are starting to roll out. Overall mixed bag I guess. Right now it has a 80/100 on Metacritic. Adam Sesslar of Rev3 gave it a 3/5. I guess there is a section right before the last boss he said was almost impossible for him to complete (took 6 hours) and you are unable to lower difficulty mid game. There is also a Trophy that is causing quite the talk among reviewers. Here is his video review but there may be minor spoilers so beware.

Same. Thing is when I checked my account history on the RZ phone app, the purchases were shown on there.

If you are new to GMG and want to receive 2 dollar credit after your first purchase of over 2 dollars, use this REFERRAL.

Nothing for me, never got those mystery certs, it is such a mystery to me.

you should take it with a grain of salt from the review you saw, the guy reviewing it clearly said he is not a gamer/ pro at god of war series. I doubt a fan like you of the series, will have problem with it.

Picked up my pre-order of Tomb Raider today and I was having issues with the $5 deposit not being taken off the final price as well. They did a price correction for me and hopefully that doesn't interfere with my $20 RZ cert.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Yes but it is the first time he has ever had this issue in reviewing a game. When he tweeted about it in general terms (did not mention the game in name) he had several other reviewers tweet back saying they knew the section he was referring to. In the end he needed help. Sessler in my opinion is one of the better critics out there. It will still end up getting the game but i thought I would just mention this to everyone. He does say vets of the series should be able to complete it faster than he did.

GoW:A will drop to $10-20 within a year. No point in gambling with BBY to hope to get to that price, especially with the stricter policy. Not a knock of the quality of the game...it happens to all GoW titles and the multiplayer aspect of this one doesn't seem compelling enough to keep it from plummeting in value, much like Kratos keeps plummeting down to hell ;p
