Had to get up to pee about 12 minutes or so ago. Clicked Spec ops the line and was surprised to see i was #4 in line... but now im getting really sleepy. Hope it pops up soon

By the way i have like 3 or 4 amazon windows open. Ive been cycling through them all looking for the popup. Can i close the extra windows? Dont want to screw up the timer if it pops up. I really wish there was a way to check where you are in the list, i need to get back to bed

Obviously you've never owned a house in Texas or you'd be singing a different tune

Lets put it this way, Texas has property tax about twice most states but part of that is because of their retarded taxation system. They have a different fucking "government" collecting taxes for the state, city, colleges, even some utilities collect taxes the same way governments would. They could no doubt lower the property tax if they didn't have so many different groups collecting taxes but Texans in general are fearful of government and want to weaken it and dilute it as much as possible. Trust me, I'm well aware of the way things work there, I lived there for many years and still have a bunch of family there.

If you want to talk about houses, obviously YOU haven't owned a house outside of Texas. A house in most Texas cities will at most cost you the same as a house in the SUBURBS of other cities. The houses in most major cities would cost 4-5 times the price of a house in some place like Austin Texas so even at a tax rate of 2 or 3 times as high, you're talking 4-5 times the price of the house so it's STILL a higher property tax + state income taxes + in some states local income taxes. I think anyone that's only lived in Texas and wants to bitch about taxes should go move to LA, DC, NY, etc and see how quickly they change their tune.

yeah bah i got mine.... sure its a dlc fest but for a 2 month game for 25 dollars its still a "good" deal



i was thinking and thinking its going to be a waste if i wouldnt get it xD


One if the few games where the dlc is worthwhile. The game itself has 50+ hours of content and first 2 dlcs have added another 15+ hours. One of the best games this year to boot. Don't feel like you are missing out either. This game is awesome with or without the dlc.

Attitude Era you say? Hmmm well I'm sold. $25 to relive some of my favorite childhood moments sounds ok. Worst case scenario..I hate it and give it to some nice kid.


its biggest flaw is that its story mode is more legends of wrestlemania than it is the svr series sure you get to play as some of the best wrestlers ever but its all objective based recreation of the attitude era and unfortunately doesnt have an original story like wwe 12

unbelievable the last batch of deals are still just sitting there.


I don't know about others, but unless it's something that I really, really want, I don't enjoy having to set a clock every few hours to get the item I want. I'd rather know when the items go live at the same time, and take my chances (either get it or not). For example, I knew I wanted an item from BB, so I happened to be up when the sale went live, and bought it. No need to also get up at 3 a.m., 6 a.m., etc. to get anything else.

This lightning deal stuff is simply inconvenient, and that's the real reason why I shop online (convenience).

Still hoping for a deal on Dark Souls or Dead Island.


Dark Souls was one of the few games I was looking for a deal on as well, looking pretty grim so far...good luck.


Dark Souls was $20 in BBY's generic value bins of games last night. Not sure what price you were wanting for the hardest game, ever.


So did the Wal-Mart layaway trick work for anyone? I'm proud of my fellow cags for discovering such a loop-hole.

Hmm isn't half an hour a bit long to wait in the waitlist when you were #4? Im wondering if something bugged out on it. I know yesterday with Ratchet I left and came back like 3 hours later and it still showed me as 'in waitlist' even though it was over and claimed. I wish there was some way to double check, i want to get back to bed

It hasn't gone live yet. Come back in 3 hours(and 15 mins).


Thanks . . . about the GOW saga deal . . .

I really hate the lightening deals . . . I don't want to sit around for hours when I have other things to do.

Anyone know if Assassin's Creed 3 is going to come back up as a deal?

Jesus.. over 45 minutes in the waitlist and i was #4 when i went in for Spec ops.. wtf? Im falling asleep at the computer i gotta get back to bed. For future refrence does joining a waitlist while you have multiple amazon windows open screw it up? Im thinking its bugging out on me, that long of a wait at that wait number seems nuts

Thinking about this, but bought too many games already and it'll drop in price by the time I get to it.

You are given a time limit when they offer you the deal on the waitlist. Do you think you may have missed that prompt?

I have slept 6 hours in 2 days behind all this Black Friday crap. Last night, we got in about midnight. I stayed up until 2:30am because our 3yr old would not go to sleep. Woke up at 4:15 to hit a couple 5am sales. Now here I am posting on here because I'm not tired. Anyone have some sleeping meds they can send me? LOL

Borderlands 2 still isn't claimed huh? Not sure if I want to get it or wait for lower. I'm a little late to the bandwagon so I'd likely end up playing it by myself.

I bought BL2 on the launch date, beat both regular and true vault hunter mode as well as all the side missions. Traded it in while the rate was still hot. It's a great game, and most people will play it for a long time because of all the DLC. I plan on picking it up again sometime next year.

Wasn't Sleeping Dogs PS3 supposed to be $25? I see it's at $30 now. Did I miss a lightning deal or something?

I wasn't planning to buy this game at all (so I didn't pay attention to its sales) but then my sister just told me a few minutes ago it's on her christmas wish list.

So much "winning" with this one.

You don't want to pay taxes on purchases because you are taxed on your income? Makes sense. Soon amazon will charge taxes to everyone as Bezos said that amazon will work with the government to set up a fair tax plan.

You should be happy amazon moved to Texas as 1. It creates jobs and 2. The state is getting tax revenue that will help provide services to the people.

$200 and you are broke? Dude you shouldn't be spending all of your money on games. You bitch about taxes but then spend it all. You are my hero.


Taxes are theft.
