BB at Westheimer near west oaks houston has tons of Halo 5 guides and 1 AC3 CE guide left. They also have some Vita cradle on sale too, no more vita cable though. Lots of 8GB and 32GB but no more 16GB vita cards.

got the last AC guide at my store - passed on the couple Halo 4 guides they had. Saw a FF Xii-2 CE guide and managed to get that for $14.99 (since it was pennied and dude just used the SKU for reg edition)

I would call the 800 number and ask for a supervisor. Store to store transfers are 100% possible and since the store is the one who messed up they should be the ones to do everything they can to fix it. Granted you may I went to the store that had the other things in stock and they said if they did it would be a 21 day weight need to wait a week or two to get your items, but better late than never.


The guy at the store I picked the other stuff atbsaid it takes over two weeks because the shipping schedule between the stores is completely ridiculous. I had.nothing else to do and hadn't been to that town in almost a decade so I drove the extra 15 minutes one way in my almost 6000 lb SUV with a modified V8 that is tuned to high octane for max performance,. Sucking gas the whole way, but what the heck, I had to do another data log for the tuner anyway. They tried to give me standard copy. Luckily they had several hardcovers left.

Oh and.while I was there the employee manning the store pickup register didn't know how to do store pickups. She seemed very annoyed with me that I was in line. Yes. Because I was in line. When leaving, the a woman who may have been the manager, just staring at me gave me the most insincere " have a good day" I have heard from a retail employee. The guys in gaming hadn't brought over the pickups or gaming so they had to go find it back there. This store is a total mess. I'm guessing they are on the closure list.

Same issue. They tried to give me the paperbacks instead of the hardcovers, and on top of that, they didn't even try to price-adjust - they were willing to let me pay the hardcover price for the paperbacks.

I had them cancel the order.

Just picked up one of each while I was buying a game. The store still has 4-5 more sealed Halo guides, but I bought the last AC guide. However, I did buy both online at the store by my office but instead bought them at another store that had the game i wanted and I was going to cancel the order, so, if anyone needs either just message me and I can go by tomorrow after work.

Could anyone please help me get a decent ACIII guide? I am a huge fan of stuff based of and inspired by American history. I also like Assassin's Creed.

I put in a pickup for the Halo one. I dont get how they can mess that up cause they have different covers. Im still debating about the AC one cause AC3 was terrible in my opinion. I was very dissapointed with it.

Saw both guides at BB yesterday, but did not know they were on sale. $4.99 just feels like a better price then $6.99. Ill wait until I get some RZ points, then hope they still have them (I doubt this will happen though!)

I don't think that would have been possible. I believe they scan the item as part of the pick up transaction.


No. Their "process" is pick & pray. I've had them pull the wrong item before, informed them, had them fail to properly cancel the order and had a pain in the assassin's creed trying to get my money back.

One of my local BB (Sacramento) had three copies of the ACIII guide. I couldn't bring myself to get it, since it's one of those games you really don't need a guide for.

Thanks OP.

Picked up a Halo and AC3 guide. Both look great and are well worth it.

By the way, if you buy any game too, you get an extra 15% off each guide. (Does not have to be the corresponding game)

Picked up a Halo 4 CE guide today for $5.94. Not sure if it pertains to all Best Buys or just the Chesapeake, VA store.

Stopped by the Best Buy near my workplace during my lunch hour to see if they had the guides. No ACIII but they did have one Halo 4 CE guide left. I grabbed it to gift it to my friend's brother. The cashier was surprised by the price and the bagchecker on the way out was blown away and said it was a complete steal. Then he stopped, looked around, and said that he doesn't condone stealing. I got a small chuckle from that.

Later in the day I tried to gift it to my friend's brother who ended up not only having one open that he used but also a sealed copy. Bought were bought at $40 a piece :lol:
Guess I'll keep this one sealed for my collection.

So that's why I got it cheaper when I picked it up today with Pikmin 2 and X-Com. Tons of Halo guides and 2 AC3 CE guides left at my location.

Didn't work for me. I bought a game with the guide, but it was still $7. Whatever.

What modern game does? None that I can think of, if a game requires a players guide to get through it (like Zelda on NES) that's a big minus in my book. And even if it wasn't, guides and youtube videos are all over the internet, just use those.

Still, getting the hardcover ACIII book for under $6 was too tempting to resist. I've never bought a game guide before, do these ever get valuable? Debating whether or not I should open it, the extra artwork/history segments intrigued me.

Damn the manager did not mention this! Some of their managers are just lazy. The guy put the books on the table but was too lazy to even put up a sign saying sale and price!

I agree no game requires a guide. But the guide books are amazing to look through if you really like a game.

Grabbed the AC3 Guide since i didn't know the Halo guide was on sale as well. But i wish Stores did this as normal practice for older guides in general.
