Best Buy's B2G1 frustration.

Posted by Scorch, 25 October 2010 · 285 views

I wish Rock Band 3 was part of Best Buy's B2G1F sale. That would make my decision so much easier between Smackdown vs Raw, Fable 3, SWTFU 2, Sims 3 and Rock Band 3.

It's either going to be SvR, SWTFU 2 and Fable 3 or Sims 3 if I go to Best Buy, SvR and Rock Band 3 if I go to K-Mart. SWTFU 2's demo was fantastic but it seems like a rental, and I have no interest in Fable 3 - I bought Fable 2 the week it came out and I still haven't put more than two hours into it. I also already have Sims 3 on the PC/Mac and can run it maxed out but I think it might be better on consoles.

:bomb:

Maybe I should go to Best Buy and grab SvR, Fable and SWTFU 2 or Sims 3 and trade someone Fable 3 for Rock Band 3. That seems like a good deal, right? I'm not sure that someone will have a spare sealed Rock Band 3 that they'd take Fable 3 for. I'm sure Fable 3's good, but I just don't have the time for it, especially since I need to play Fable 2 first.

This is a tough choice.

I know what you mean. I thought video game deals would make buying games easier. But, instead, every time there is a deal I want, I go through all these possibilities of how I should do it, buying these games, or these, etc. Sometimes I think I'm going to go nuts trying to make up my mind, because it doesn't happen very easy.

good luck with your decision!
If I were that undecided on what to buy I would just wait on another deal to come along. Everytime I buy a game just to fill in a b2g1 it usually just collects dust and it ends up not really being that great a deal after all.
Well.. I've got to have SvR on day one. I can wait on Rock Band 3 until the squire stratocaster, but I love the Rock Band games and I don't want to miss out.. but at the same time, I haven't played the RB games in forever. I do have over 200 songs though..

Well, that knocks it down to four to choose from, I guess.
I have the feeling that one of these games is going to be 40 bucks on BF :(
Fable 3 absolutely will.. but if I'm buying SvR and SWTFU 2 or Sims 3, it'll be free for me.
Made my choice - SvR, Fable 3 and Sims 3.

I'll get Rock Band 3 when the squire stratocaster comes out.. and the negative buzz around SWTFU 2 swayed me from buying it.. yeah, it'll be fun, but it's also about 6 hours long with little replayability.
Unless you have BBY credit, maybe you want to wait a bit to see if there is confirmation of the reported B2G1 at Target next week. Then you could get whatever you really want. You just have to wait five or six days.
