Instead of snapping the disc in half, you could trade it back in to BBY for $18/$19.20 (w/ GCU) after the 50% extra credit (NOTE: This is for the :ps3: version, as the :360: version is worth $2 less base). Then it's like you bought the quiver and stuff for $20, which might be a pretty good deal for some.

Not for me, though. 8-)

They would throw her out and call Homeland security if she walked in with a quiver and 2 plastic arrows.

picked this up when gs had it for 40 and used a pur certificate to knock it down to 15. anyhoo, i've played only about 2-3 hrs, but that whole time has been spent sitting in the pub and gambling with the munchkin guy and his 'riddles.' dunno y but i find solving his riddles and making money lots of fun. so, umm..yeah... get this game if you like solving riddles?

side note, the bonus disc is just a dvd with a couple tracks (2-3) from the soundtrack and a video of inon zur and how he made the music. kinda underwhelming, but like i said, betting money to solve riddles is fun.

I was worried too but my playthrough was glitch-free on PS3, and my brother's was on his 360 copy. It's a shame that a lot of people got screwed but keep in mind they would obviously be the vocal ones spreading their experiences on the internet compared to the average player that encounters no or very few problems.

Rented this game when it was released and I played thru the campaign glitch free. Picking one up, not a bad game for those who love Dark Alliance.

what's the best way to get this the LEAST damaged: ship to store or shipped to home?

whichever one you end up not choosing... :)

BB let me down on their ME3 CE shipment to my house.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

i think its because that fit in an envelope. the only way they could ship this lotr ce is in a box, and the general consensus here is if the ce doesn't fit in an envelope, bb shipping has been pretty good.
i got skyrim ce, kz3 helghast, mw2 prestige, and bioshock 2 ce all shipped in the manufacturers shipping boxes, so they all arrived perfect.

Ok, but didn't see your message until after I placed my order.

So I got it shipped to store. Used my Disney universe store credit so buying this was a no-brainer. How the hell was the msrp $140 though? That's just crazy. I feel like I'm barely getting my money's worth at $40.

Aw crap, I would've bought this here instead of GS for the double reward points. Oh well.

several ship to home from BB arrived in perfect condition; one store pick steel case was bent, according to my experience, my local BB sucks, things got damanged in this store's warehouse.

Damn, I really like the extras (quiver looks awesome) but I just checked out the IGN review and the game looks very mediocre.

Maybe worth holding out until this thing goes on clearance for 20-30?

oh yeah, i forgot that they send a game from store/warehouse closest to you if you ship to store. fine, i just cancelled my order. will re-order it and have them ship to home.

Ship to Store wouldn't be s bad deal if you are buying other thing. If you add another $60 to that you'll get a free $10 gift card. Of course that is if there's $60 more you want to spend

Combine this, a B2G1 on the DotW, BF3 and a filler :)

There's your $100.
