#14330628 XBL Deals - DwG: RDR2:SE, South Park, Division 1/2, more | Quakecon, Metro,...

Posted by briandadude on Yesterday, 02:28 AM in Video Game Deals

The original Forza Horizon has the most personality and the best soundtrack (also in 4K on the One X). FH2 is probably my least favorite. I like the map but the progression system is boring.

I hope I have the discipline to wait for a FH5 system bundle but that’s likely 3 years from now. 😛



#14330565 Super Mario 3D All Stars (Physical) up for preorder

Posted by briandadude on 28 September 2020 - 11:50 PM in Video Game Deals

Credit for struggling thru a cluttered mess of a menu to do one Mario Kart iOS race looks to have been given for anyone that cares!

6/6! Time to post to Facebook! :D/


I got credit and didn’t even fully load the game. Didn’t matter though as you only needed to complete 5 of 6 missions.

Got an animal crossing edition switch delivered today (from an online order)...is it a d**k move to go to the store and process a return/rebuy in order to get a military discount as well as burn up some trade credit I recently got for the +$5 deal?

I keep forgetting to use it on smaller purchases, but the employees are always encouraging me when I use it to make sure I keep asking for it.

Don't want to hurt their metrics for returns...but I do remember seeing a few weeks back that if the employee knows what they're doing, they can process the return/rebuy against the warehouse, not the store.


I’d just call the store and run it by them so they can be prepared when/if you come in.

Early impression videos for the Series X are starting to be posted, and apparently it’s nearly silent. I don’t think that surprises anyone here, but it’s nice to have that confirmation!


Nice. I need to hear it running next gen games.

RIP Forza Horizon 3 digital version, you were a good digital game.


RIP. A shame that anyone joining the Xbox family with a Series S will not be able to play FH3 or the Hot Wheels DLC.

I’m probably going to buy a few extra FH3 and expansion pass codes to give away to friends and family. I just enjoy the game too much to not be able to share it.



#14329208 Forza Horizon 3 (Xbox One/PC) $7.86

Posted by briandadude on 25 September 2020 - 04:40 AM in Video Game Deals

Why wouldn’t this site wait until the game is delisted before selling? They could probably sell for $20 each next week.

Yeah, I'm showing that price at stores, but you can't select them and price stays at $64.88.  If you can get it at the $49.88 I'd jump on that.  Anyway, thanks for the screenshot.

I can't order it but this is the same technique I use to verify if new Switch games will be $10 off in store before they officially go on sale.

Back up on Amazon UK. Where are our US orders...

Showing full price for me in the app. Must have fixed it


Shows for me when I scroll down to “pickup not available at” > Options.

Could be a mistake but the new controllers appear in the Walmart app as $49.88 in store. Even the blue.



#14328004 Microsoft Rewards Breakdown

Posted by briandadude on 22 September 2020 - 06:48 PM in Video Game Deals

Has anyone noticed a change to your GPU expiration?

I was at 2/14/22, and have since added 2 1-month codes acquired through ms reward promotions to get to 4/14/22.

Now it says renews 3/30/22.

Nope, good until 10/30/22 as I expected. I have a code for another 12 months that I’m waiting to apply.

I probably would if I had someone to wait with me that’s how bad I want to get rid of this GS credit


Get there when you feel like it and if they’re out of preorders, ask for the amount in Xbox credit. 😎

I cashed out to Xbox GCs, I'll try my luck with Microsoft Store


Exactly what I did. Will keep using my monthly $5 rewards for exactly $5 of Xbox credit for as long as that lasts. Microsoft is not going under anytime soon, delivery is quicker and more reliable than GameStop, and they don’t push bundles.

It would be nice if they announced the price of the expansion drive (unless they did and I missed it?).


Haven’t seen it. Leak was $220 for 1 TB.

Put the games on all consoles (because making $ is important) but never discounted digitally on Playstation to funnel people into Xbox/Game Pass.

Do we know the power draw on the S vs X? Let’s not forget the difference in ongoing electricity costs in our analysis. 😛

I’ve got a 1X and will be holding out until a bundle or at least special edition. I want to see what these smart delivery game sizes look like and the perceptible difference in quality between models.



#14326164 Super Mario 3D All Stars (Physical) up for preorder

Posted by briandadude on 20 September 2020 - 01:52 PM in Video Game Deals

Mine should be here on Tuesday. In the meantime, I’ve been playing Super Mario 64 DS on my 2DSXL and it’s pretty good.

Do we know the price of the new controller? I'm guessing $60.




#14326075 Daily Steals/Facebook - Super Mario 3D All-Stars - $52.99

Posted by briandadude on 20 September 2020 - 03:35 AM in Video Game Deals

Yeah I was excited. But then mine came in from Middle East -__-


From this “USA Region” deal? That’s not cool. I’d exercise whatever Facebook protection policy there is. I’ll do the same if mine is that way.



#14325914 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by briandadude on 19 September 2020 - 06:40 PM in Video Game Deals

Went to Target as they give you a $5 Target gift card when you get a flu shot there. Stopped by GameStop next door to use my $5 monthly PUR offer on xbox credit. The girl said $10 was the lowest gift card amount until I asked her to try the $5 and tada, it worked.

 

I was going to use the $5 on the upcoming Game & Watch but grew tired of waiting.

Are we really cheap gamers if we preorder consoles that don’t include any pack in games or discounts? Think I’ll try to hold out for at least a limited edition model. My favorite game is Forza Horizon and while I’d love less loading, I can’t justify a new console just for that.
