Was in a Washington store

They had
AC 3: CE HC $8.49
FF XIII-2 HC $3.49
Hitman Absolution HC $8.49
Halo 4 CE HC $10

And they had a pile of softcovers for 75% of the above mentioned games and a few others. I only recall Borderlands 2, but there were probably 5 other titles i can't remember.

They were on a cart with a sign showing adjusted price. I picked up 3 and manager had to a do an override for each one. There seemed to be at least 5 copies of most of the guides, but Halo & FF XIII-2 were the last ones.

I want my own strategy guy.

Also, I'll have to go see if FF XIII-2 is on a goofy sale like that at my local BB, I know it got pennied out awhile ago.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Wow, a Hitman strategy guy is pretty cheap, you'd think he'd be more expensive

You think the Hitman strategy guy is cheap? Man, his pay rate is great compared to the FFXIII-2 guys due to the amount of content in both of those games!

Is this the kind of "guys" meant in a non-gender specific sense? I'd really prefer a strategy girl...

Heh, looks like you figured it out. As for the actual deal though these are good prices for anybody who will actually use or collect them, I've never been huge on guides myself though.

Manager override means this is a YMMV clearance (i.e. an individual store decided to clearance these out).

The DIII was soft cover. They also had a cart of clearanced out games ranging from .99-12.99 Didn't pay to much attention to it but the ones I can remember
Saints Row the Third with Headset $12
Some Guitar Hero (Game only) Aerosmith and one other I believe $1
Def Jam Rapstar with Mic $1
Original Skylanders Starter Set $8
Original Sklyanders Mega Pack $13
Madden 2010 $1
Some Golf Game which was either $1 or $3
NCAA Football 2011 $1
Splatterhouse $4

I know there were a few others but I don't remember what they were

At these prices I'm not sure what will be left from yesterday so I wouldn't drive out of my way to go see but if you are in the area couldn't hurt

Thanks for posting Rainfall I was able to get every guide I wanted except the Guild Wars 2 HC and the New Supermario Bros U

Hitman was full price at my store... Resident evil 6 was a penny, they had dozens of them but the system wouldn't let them sell me one. Anyone know how to get the system to let me buy a penny guide?

I stumped my local BB manager when I tried to buy the Mass Effect 3 collectors edition, so she gave it to me for free since i'm a loyal customer. I love my store, they match any legit deal I present to them and go above and beyond when I have a problem. Top notch, I hope they stay around for a long time.

They should just price adjusted for you. If it is stickered with that price they need to honor it to you. It's the rule of BBB.
