Excellent deal with the coupon. Which two though? Would like to try out Game of Thrones. Dead Souls I want just to play all the Yakuza's. Donkey Kong intrigues me, but there is a force field around my Wii; just can't seem to turn it on.

Luckily I was at the end of a half off single disc sub ($8 for a month). Ended up getting a couple of vita games with the $12 off, free shipping. :)

I miss nr3..... Will it restock?


What is nr3?

Some people spell things out completely.......or SPSTOC for people that dont spell things out.

I even googled it and no video games match nr3.

It would be nice if the younger generation knew proper english and didnt abbreviate everything or turn everything into an acronym.

It's not JUST younger people, but i notice it 100 times more with them.

It's getting absolutely ridiculous when it comes to athletes too.

Everyone seems to take an athlete's initials and then add the jersey number to it. DB23, LJ32, HK12 and stupid crap like that.

Im not even that old, im 29, but i vividly remember when athletes were referred to by their NAME. I remember athletes' names, not their jersey number.

That guess is as good as mine.

All i could think of is No Reservations: the game.

But then i started thinking, "When did Anthony Bourdain make a video game, and how the hell did it deserve 2 sequels?"

Kinda remind me of a time back when I was playing Everquest. Somebody was shouting in game "can any1 help me with ....?". It's Everquest so the person is obviously using a keyboard. How much effort is it to type out just two more characters?

Im surprised the person didnt say something like, "help ne1, gettin pwned"

One of the reasons why i object to the younger generation going overboard with acronyms and abbreviations is that many of them ACTUALLY dont know how to correctly spell or say things because they ONLY use abbreviations and acronyms and slang.

In 50 years, dictionaries will PROBABLY have "prolly" as the correct spelling, and list "probably" as being either archaic or regional dialect.

If a teacher asks students to write a one-page report, they will probably all say, "What's a page? Twitter only lets us do 150 characters. Do you want us to do a one-tweet report???"


Sorry to all the people who read this and wonder why im so bothered by it. Im sitting here in a casino surveillance room bored out of my mind, and all i can do is dwell on things.....

On topic: couldn't find 2 games from gamefly that i wanted. I hope this isnt their BIG sale of the year. Last year i snagged a bunch of cheap games and i am less impressed with this sale.

My guess is he meant ng3, for ninja gaiden 3. However, I think a lot of people just gloss over that guy's comments at this point.

Yes. I am so sorry that I abbreviate too short. Again, please forgive me. I will not be too lazy next time to make you all so confused. By the way, is ninja gaiden 3 worth $14.99 for my another choice to use the coupon?

I don't understand how ninja gaiden 3 abbreviates to nr3. Not like it was a mistake since you used that abbreviation more than once.

The games I was tossing around getting with the coupon before are finally back but with the upped prices and shipping it killed the deal for me.

I guess my pondering if I want to add more games to my backlog saved me from doing it.

Still not a bad deal for me, they got The Witcher 2 back in stock, so I got it and Sonic Colors for a little over $26. I can deal with that.

Imo unless you really want to play it right away you should just wait, it's hit $9.99 before.

I Borrowed Ninja Gaiden 3 from my friend. It's bad. The fact that this bares the name Ninja Gaiden and they made sections where I can literally just mash X without looking at the screen is embarrassing. Also every new feature in the game is a gigantic annoyance and the camera is god awful and the controls are no where as smooth as first two. Also it has the stupidest boss fight ever. Not meaning hard, but just the execution of it is plain awful.

I could get The Last Story and Kingdoms of Amalur for $43.50, just deciding if I want to pull the trigger. Leaning towards no.

Ok. I decide to wait it then..actually I want to play this game because I just finished Ninja gaiden 2 last week. I look forwards to the story line...THank you again. If it is $9.99, I must go for it in ps3

No one is condemning you as a bad person or anything. Its just that abbreviating everything is not only lazy, its confusing. You ask a normal person what SMB is and they will probably have no idea. You ask them if they know what Super Mario Bros is and they will say yes.

Words exist for a reason. Words work better than abbreviations and acronyms.

Also, if you mess up one letter of an acronym then the whole thing is wrong.

But if you had spelled out Ninja Raiden 3, then we would know that you MEANT Gaiden, but accidentally put an R instead of a G. We can use the OTHER LETTERS to decipher your intended word.

It's just better to write everything completely. If you are in a forum dedicated to a specific game or company, then the abbreviation would be more clear and appropriate.
