Two things about stock: 1. TRU stock locator for store pickup will show out of stock if there is three or less of anything left, so there may actually be something there. 2. Most TRU are coming up on inventory within the week and they're not bothering to replenish anything because of it.

I hope the "gold" version will have everything that the wii U version will have. Based on the reviews so far, every cross platform game released on the wii u has been worse performance wise because of the slow cpu.


Please don't start that here as that is 100% untrue.

This game is wildly underrated, especially after the last patch which lets you adjust the camera FOV to RE 4 levels and wider. The raw mechanics of the game are top notch for any TPS, considering the amount of tools at your disposal and the variety of enemies that you encounter. Scenario design is definitely more uneven (sometimes comically ridiculous) than would be expected, but one campaign has more going on than most games as a whole. Reminds me of DMC 1 in that they let you perform everything your character is doing, not just watching a token cinema, even if it is jarring.

The Dark/Demon's Souls style agent hunt mode adds a lot to the game which rarely gets mentioned. Finally activated it today and the two guys that "invaded" made the game more challenging and fun on normal than professional. Coop mercenaries is definitely best part of the game though since there is no garbage scenario BS to deal with and can just focus on the core gameplay.

While I could see how people disliked it if they used 1/10 of the options available and played it like some generic cover shooter with the formerly claustrophobic camera, there's a lot of fun in the game if you experiment to play efficiently at all, especially in coop (naturally).

I think something is wrong with their online inventory every zip I type in and all the posts here say OOS... Maybe i'll swing in and look for it tomorrow, $20 is a easy buy but it won't be long before it's cheaper on Gamefly. Heard alot of gripes but still I wanna try it, I made myself not play the demo waiting for a deal.

will wait for gamefly 14.99 sale. with 2013 so packed in Q1-2 expect a lot of the games from 2012 to get huge price drops.

resident evil 6-$14.99(i heard the single player is about 25-30hrs long can someone confirm it)
darksiders 2-$14.99
Sleeping Dogs-$14.99
Borderlands 2-$under 20
Dishonored_under $20 but would like it to be $14.99
Hitman-Under $20-maybe will wait for GF sale

also want to get ME Trilogy when its under $25 maybe under $20

other than that i am pretty up to date with my backlog

Picked up a copy for :ps3: tonight at the confirmed price of $19.99.

They actually had a tag that stated the game was on sale for $39.99 ($20 off). Glad it rung up per the OP as I had to drive 25 minutes one way to go get it ;)

Excellent game for local coop with your girlfriend or wife.


My wife is a big RE fan and we always play the games together. The introduction of splitscreen coop in 5 was perfect for us even if it was weaker than 4.

Only reason we hadn't picked this up was we had plenty to do and little time to do it, but not going to pass up a copy for $20.

Called the local TRU and they told me it was on sale in their ad for $29.99 but no sign stating $19.99. Hope some CAGs can find it at that price.

Tempting, but I'll wait for inevitable Steam price drop.

Based on my experience with the demo and reading/watching reviews, it's something that i can wait for

I found this to be a better game than RE5.

Also if Claire's gonna show up, what about Jill?

Nope. The store was in the process of closing plus with no signage, I wasn't going to take the time to see about the :360: version (just wanted to hit & run to get home to the wife...)

For those who don't check the Target Clearance Thread and are near a Target, this might be worth checking out: http://www.cheapassg...96#post10342096

YMMV, OF COURSE.


I scored a fucking sweet deal tonight at the East Liberty Target in Pittsburgh. I found a :ps3: Resident Evil 6 Anthology in one of the overflow endcaps marked at full price ($89.99). It didn't have any DCPI, Online item or Repackaged stickers on it. Luckily I decided to give it a scan and it came up at $26.98! 70% off! I'm guessing it hit the clearance cycle but whatever worker was marking games never updated it with the clearance stickers. It might be a wild goose chase for most of you but if you saw one of these in an endcap its worth a trip to give it a scan. Hopefully some other CAG's can find it. Here's a pic for proof.

EDIT: I'm a dope and forgot the DCPI is on the receipt. Its 207 24 0758 for :ps3: RE 6 Anthology.

Hey guys! Those of you checking their online stash well, you're being tricked. TRU likes to do these with sale title games. I can guarantee it's in stock at your local TRU. How do I know you may ask? Well The last 2 times I bought one of those 2 x $60 deals..I would order them online for store pickup, for both times. One will be in stock the other I would have to order it saying there is no stock available within a 50-100 mile radius. First time I said ok, did my pickup Battlefield 3 and what do I see? Max Payne 3 on the shelf with 5 copies.....The second time I went , did the store pickup order only one game available.. and well the can guess the rest.

I think they do this so there will be copies for the people who actually go there for other merch.. Just head over there, I can say 95% there are copies, or you can just call.

I can say with personal knowledge that TRU (at least at my local store) witholds inventory during certain sales.

They will put a certain number of copies on the floor and keep the rest in the back until the following sunday.

it's nowhere near as bad as people make it out to be

they're just mad this isn't the resident evil they grew up with


And if it was the RE they grew up with, they would say "Crapcom is just shoveling out the same game every year!" (See Call of Duty comments.) I'm glad they changed it up, just like I'm glad Dead Space 3 is doing something different. Certain types of games can be released year in and year out with minor tweaking, but how many times is a person going to be stuck in a place overwhelmed by X (zombie, aliens, monsters) and find himself alone with limited ammo?

Capcom gets a lot of hate, but Resident Evil 5, Dragon's Dogma, Lost Planet 1 and 2, Marvel v. Capcom 3, Street Fighter IV etc. are really good games. The one thing that sickens me is charging for the Azura's Wrath "true" ending. That's terrible.
