Price match from Walmart since it went live online. For those that missed lightning deals.

Didn't see it posted. Was $39.99 an hour ago on 360 and $35 on PS3.

I ordered one from Walmart earlier. Not sure if I should cancel and order from Amazon. It has no monetary benefit to me either way, but I'm not sure if Walmart ships in shoddy packaging or not. I know Amazon uses the little cardboard boxes that protect the games real well.

This was the last game that I wanted this Black Friday. CAG saved me from going to a store and having to deal with hordes of people. This could possibly be the best Black Friday experience I have ever had!

I would order it but by the time I get to playing it I am sure it will be even cheaper.

One of my favorite games this year. Fantastic top-down strategy gameplay in addition to an extra metagame strategy layer that has you managing resources, research priorities, and "panic levels" across the globe. It's also hard as balls at the beginning, and you absolutely will get many different members of your squad killed, but the difficulty and learning curve makes victory that much more exhilarating. I paid the equivalent of about $35 for it at launch and would have totally paid full retail for it if I had to. Luckily, I didn't, and you don't either. :)

Every time that's happened to me I send them a NICE email and ask if they can do a price adjust because it hasn't shipped yet. It always works. 8-)

I called them on the phone and asked my customer service lady (who was so Asian I could barely understand her) very nicely if she could do that, and she told me no, so I just ordered another copy at $25, and just as the customer service lady told me I should do, I'll return the $35 copy.

Not good, not good--I can return my Walmart copy thanks to this, but my Amazon credit is dwindling (and until I start to re-acquire some of the credit through trade-ins in the weeks to come, it'll stay low for a bit). Should I be happy with my WM copy or jump on this...? :-k

EDIT: Eh, I'll stick with my WM copy since I've already re-ordered R&C Collection and GoW Saga through Amazon so I can return my still-sealed copies to Gamestop and regain some credit.

I pondered this. I was going to get this on PC but then I researched. To my eyes the Graphics are about the same. I'm sure if you have a crazy rig they will be a bit better but it's not really a beautiful game meant to push your hardware. Second it seems that the controller was optimized for the game and actually works better than the KB/M. The only thing the PC edition has going for it is mods. There are some mods out now and I'm sure more to come but it's not like say the Civ V mod scene where getting the mods are built into the platform. In short the console version looks to be neck and neck with the PC version. If you're a mod guy though you probably want to go with the PC version Green Man Gaming has is for $3 more I think.

thanks OP!
got a copy for 360.
not willing to do the walmart crowd trampling to get this one in store, so this is a nice alternative

So, between this and GoW Saga, is it safe to say that Lightning Deals mean nothing?

Does it really matter if your un-leveled up team members get killed? Is this like fire emblem where you basically can't lose anyone?

You can hire new soldiers but it costs money, not much, but every bit of money seems to count in this game. Also some missions have rewards such as granting you a higher level unit to use.

I picked my copy up at Walmart and played for like 6 hours last night. The game is really good. If you like any of the following, Warcraft, Command & Conquer, SMT games, FFT, Disgaea, Mass Effect, you will like this game. I feel it has elements of that all these games have all rolled into one massive ball.

I was able to get it at walyworld (with the DLC) around 1pm thursday since they had a glitch on the system. most of the video games already had the black friday price. I completely avoided the wild animalistic people from midnight. I was so proud of myself :)
