So GoWA comes with DLC for allstars? What is it, Zeus's character?

 

I'm not sure if the RE does, the CE comes with a code for Zeus & Issac Clarke (Dead Space).

Remembered I have some money in a PayPal account I could use on Madden 13....considering it a little more now.

 

The local store doesn't have it in stock so I would be required to have it shipped to my closest store.

 

Decisions decisions.....

Why not, if you don't mind me asking? I'm debating jumping back into football gaming as I haven't played in a few years. I'm torn on whether to buy this for $15 or just wait for the new one next month. I haven't heard spectacular things about 13.

Hey, is the God of War good at this price. I'm a huge fan of the series and although this appears to be the weakest of the series, the demo was pretty good. Any opinions on the game?

 

For me it's:

 

3 > 2 > 1 > Ascension

 

I'd put Ascension ahead of 1 if you were to decide between the games all at one time.  But 1 was really good at the time it came out and the type of expectations it had versus Ascension at release.  If you enjoyed the demo, then you'll like Ascension.  The MP is the stronger component of the game though.  I'm currently an active participant in the online community.

As htz said, it comes with Zeus and Isaac Clarke.

Lucked out -- went to BBY and found a 50% off rack -- Remember Me was sitting there and got it for $30.  A pretty nice deal for a Capcom game that looks like it could be one of those forgotten low-print runs.

Should be 8/3. The Back to School sale last week lasted a week. I don't remember Best Buy ever having a 1 day flash sale like this.

And one god damned bronze trophy locked away in the multiplayer.  I bought it used (I don't see myself being interested in the multiplayer) but I guess I won't be platinuming this game.

Yeah that's probably your best bet, I did a little bit of digging on the ps3trophies forums for the games and it doesn't look like there's any way around the Online Pass for that one damn trophy.

They probably do it purposely so people buy new or buy the pass. Trophies/achievements means money to developers now lol.

Well I had decided to buy Madden13 since I have Paypal credit. And then BBY won't ship it to the store closest to me for whatever reason.

So not buying it.

Anyone in NYC able to snag a ni no Kuni for me? I can meet anywhere between Chinatown and Midtown for payment.

I already checked 62 and Broadway as well as Bryant Park. Both are done.

Thanks and good hunting friends.

Guys, what do you think the odds of Ni No Kuni dropping below $20 in the future, or pulling an Xenoblade and becoming hard to find?  I do really want the game, and $20 sounds like a great price, but with my backlog as large as it is I doubt I'd get to it anytime before 2014.  I'm willing to nab it at $20 if there's a chance it'll go OoS everywhere, or I'll end up paying over $20, but otherwise I'm leaning towards waiting.
