Son of a bitch. If they're gonna drop the price that low you'd think they have way too many copies on hand and wouldn't be sold out so quickly.
shit.


It's funny how everyone thinks this, but what if they did have a lot of copies on hand and there was a lot of people that jumped in on this deal?

I just grabbed a copy for my friend. He tried the game one day while he was over at my house and really liked it, so for $12.50 I figured I could grab him a copy.


damn I think i may need to start looking for more generous friends :oldman:

seriously though, timeshift looks tempting at $15 shipped, but wonder if its anything like those awful Blinx games. if the time shift element is well implemented, actually adding to the experience instead of being merely another gimmick. guess i'll try the demo

Civ Chronicles is awesome...worth it for the board game alone, but it also has Civ I-IV.

It comes with the card game, not the board game. Big difference.

Exactly. They sent out an email on a regularly scheduled sale, it's not like it's something a CAG stumbled on. Based on how popular it was here, I'm sure it was just as popular everywhere else the email went to.

Something tells me I won't have to worry about them running out of Avatar for the Wii.

Also wish I could get demos for the PC games...

In for a copy of Tabula Rasa. I'm a sucker for MMO's and it just so happens I have nothing to play ATM...

Might pick up Avatar for trade fodder, could perhaps save it for a "trade 2 Wii games and get X game free" or whatever the hell they do these days.

'Course it could be on their "DO NOT TAKE THIS IN FOR TRADE-IN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE" type of games.

that sucked. I ordered Conan once the link was posted and my order was processed but I just got an email saying my order was canceled.

Ohhh... I wonder what happened. Maybe they were testing to see how badly people want it? Has anyone else who was able to checkout earlier this morning had this canceled email?

I ordered about 45 minutes after it was posted, no cancellation email here.

Damn, I got a backordered e-mail, too. Will they honor the price when it comes back in stock? The PP payment is still pending, so does that mean I will get the game at that price eventually?

Maybe if I would have been up at 4am I could have scored a copy of Conan. Probably no chance this comes back in stock like the Amazon DOTD does...


It was OOS at 3 am when I checked, and I kept on checking for about an hour. Like someone else mentioned, some hoarders may have cleaned out the entire stock

It was limit one per order, i tried to place two into my cart and couldn't.
Of course they could have made multiple orders but it still makes it a little harder to hoard.
My guess is that they just didnt have that many copies to began with.

FWIW: I received the email 45 minutes before it was posted here (11:30 PM PST)

Any game that is received as crap can sell for $13ish shipped as long as the game is considered "new". lol. I would have bought one myself :P

I smell a bait and switch going on here. That's pretty messed up to put up a "48 hour madness" event that lasted oh but half an hour?!?! I mean I've heard of limited quantities but this is rather ridiculous considering it was already sold out before most people even woke up on the East coast! GG better be restocking and giving everyone a fair chance to even buy a conan or I'm gonna be pissed... :bomb: :headache:

Don't be an idiot.


Why is that being an idiot? Because I don't agree with the tactic of doing a 48 hour madness that only lasts less than half an hour? It's like the holidays, when a store says "We have Wii in stock!" and only have like 2 so everyone and their mother comes running and then seeing that it's all sold out, they feel like they have to buy something just because they came anyway believing they might get a Wii. Get it? I've never heard of a 48 hour madness sale selling out in that short of a span especially if they were limiting people to only 1 per order. And to top it off, this was when most people in America were either asleep or going to sleep? What's the sense in that? I get to work around 7am EST and it was already sold out. This isn't black friday ya know, so why would they advertise a "sale" to only have an item in that advertisement last a couple of minutes?

There have been previous 48 Hour Madness deals that sold out quick, simply because they were just too good. I think the cheap wired 360 controller was gone before we knew it. Anyway, bait and switch is a little hard to pull off online. In store, you're like, "Damn, I already came here. Maybe, there is something to get." Online, it involves next to no effort to go the site.

Yeh I know, I just wanted that guy to justify calling another board member an idiot. I hope he's not a premium member, that's what the whole premium membership is trying to get rid of, rude people. :-\"

I'm unfamiliar with GoGamer. What's the chances Conan gets back in stock at this price?

Man, I wish that was the PS3 version of Conan. I actually liked the demo, but can't see paying more than $20 for the game given that it is kind of PS2 looking. I hope someday Conan will be the price I'm willing to pay. :-k
