Everyone in here needs to remember this when the next Cheapy awards come up and not rubber stamp Amazon as online retailer of the year and send a message that Amazon needs to change if it wants to remain relevant for more than just 1 day a year.

Listen to the Checkmate Arcade video game podcast! Also available on ITunes, Stitcher Radio, or YouTube.

Geez - would it have been too much to ask for the Wii U version of Just Dance 4 to be included in the gold box price?

*looks at gold box*
lol classic amazon

Yep. These days with Amazon you're guaranteed to get some Cabela title, Just Dance or Zumba, the last Call of Duty at not much of a sale price, an arcade fight stick, some Capcom fighting game and a gamer headset.

Yet we all go into each Gold Box event hoping for the best.

I will admit, I was laughing to myself a bit when I got to the third Zumba. Then I saw yet another Zumba and just closed the page.

Wow, just when you thought these couldn't get any worse.

Does Amazon not understand that gamers sometimes use their site and not just bored housewives?

^^^this. I actually thought, "hey, are they trying to be ironic?!," then I realized the clues changed. I have never seen such crap.

Pretty much how how felt while reading the Zumba-filled OP. I guess my hopes and dreams of a Radiant Historia deal are shattered.

Amazon is great. Just when I think their Goldbox deals couldn't get more lame, they manage to prove me wrong. I mean, they are never really all that good, but geeze.

As soon as I saw four Zumba Fitness deals in a row followed by Epic Mickey, I just knew I had to come to this thread. The only plus is that most of us never had hope for any good deals from Amazon today, so there can't be any real disappointment.

On a totally unrelated note, I recently purchased the Assassins Creed Vita bundle and got a promo code for $10 off the purchase of AC3.

If anybody wants it, here you go: 7S63-JYBYZY-JGCZEP

Now back to Zumba fitness.

I normally don't give Amazon a hard time for these Gold Box events. I'm grateful for Amazon and that they even offer the deals. But this one just sucks.

I had been giving Amazon the benefit of the doubt on this goldbox, what with a decent BF line up and the imminent holiday. Oh well, Zumba rainbow it is.

I think these Gold Boxes have become a joke to the CAG community but, and this frightens me, games like Dance Central / Let's Dance / Zumba do actually sell well. They just appeal to a very different audience. CAG's get disappointed because the Gold Box events always seem to have the same games (or the franchise's newer edition) but I think these events are really targeted at the more mainstream and casual shopper.

Now that I've shifted most of my gaming over to PC, I've been pretty impressed by Amazon's sales. While they don't often reach the lunacy levels of the Steam summer or winter sales, the weekly deals are usually very good. I think that when people lobby for Amazon as retailer of the year, it's because of the PC deals and the pre-order bonuses (though most of those have slipped from $20 credit to $10 in the past year or so) and release date delivery for console games and not the Gold Box events.

Having 4 Zumba lightning deals is funny as shit. I say bravo Amazon. If I'm going to pass at least I can point and laugh about it.
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

I haven't seen a good pre-order deal from Amazon in a while. The last batch were all Instant Video credits.

I usually don't get much out of these deals because I own most of the games out there, but the running joke on these gold box events is that they're almost always garbage games. The event isn't worth noting because it's generally 75% Wii games, and usually bad Wii games at that. I mean just the fact that the majority of posters in this thread were able to predict what type of games would be up for sale should be a big flashing sign that Amazon has done this way too many times already.

I'm moderately interested in the arcade stick(?) going on sale at midnight. If that's even what it is.

It would have to hit a stupifyingly low price point (like 20 bucks) for me to buy it, as I literally have some Sanwa parts en route to mod my Tekken 6 stick, and still need to acquire a soldering iron. But here's hoping. Maybe.

Any chance Epic Mickey at 1:00 PST is not solely of the Wii variety?
