Got Mass Effect for $19.49 before tax. May pick up Bioshock and Gears next week when I finally get a 360.

quick question, my edge card expires at the end of the month, if I renew it, I will get the another year of edge and another year of GI? Thinking about picking up Blue Dragon, Forza2/Marvel UA, and Dark Sector. With the coupon+edge, it should be around $35 and the edge+GI is $15(i think).If you look at it in my pov (without coupon+edge, total will be around $54), it's like me getting the GI+edge for another year for free....sort of.

Is there anything really wrong with Mass Effect? My local Gamestop's have TONS of used copies (like 10+), and they all look like they're in mint condition. I was thinking of picking up that and Crackdown.

ME is awesome. There's DLC, too. It's an older game though.

As if my wallet didn't take enough of a hit last week with the 25% PS2/PS3/PSP coupon, now this.

Looks like I may be getting Alone in the Dark after all.

I own it and enjoyed playing it. I'm not a big RPG fan either.

I loved the game, still currently playing picked it up a month ago. I spent a good 30 hours on this game.

Just a warning you have to stick with it, the first 3 hours bored me to tears because I didn't know what I was doing.

I only stuck with it because I heard really good reviews, and once you get outside the citial it alot of fun.

Civ, and SC4 might find its way into my library shortly I really need to think this over.

I just picked up 3 other games last week that I didn't touch yet too.

That's pretty much exactly what I wanted to hear. I'm not the biggest RPG fan, but this looks like it's more action-based with RPG elements, which I don't mind. The sci-fi theme looks cool too. I was paying attention to the game before it was released, but then it got released and people started saying load times or the check point system sucked. I guess check point systems always suck though.

So I bought Too Human earlier in the day, and I've been playing it for the past 2 hours. I can definitely see where it got the bad reviews, but it is still a really fun game. Definitely worth the $35 or so with this coupon, but not much more than that. You actually get used to the combat system really quickly and is actually an alright game. Glad I picked it up.

There's a store with the SC4 LE used. I may buy that.
Also, does anyone know if the 50% off games in the older sale got permanent mark downs? Or are they still full price, having the 50% taken off with coupon code (which won't stack with the coupon)
If Spiderman has dropped to 8.99, I'd probably get it for 6 bucks after the coupon.

got a good question for you guys....



what game(s), with this coupon and the edge card, could i get the maximum value of points on goozex?


it would have to be a game with moderate - high demand on goozex.....


any ideas?

I know the expansion disc (shivering isles) loads directly to your hard drive then you never need it again. If you don't have a hard drive/360 failure it is a one time use item, never requiring the expansion disc again. I'm unsure if the GOTY expansion disc has any further protection on it (e.g. checks to see if it has the GOTY oblivion game as opposed to the regular oblivion game), but I would doubt it.


Are you serious? It's funny because I've been wondering this for the past couple days leading up to the coupon. I'll have to track down a used SI expansion, load it on my HDD, then return it for something else.
Already used the coupon one today to pick up Ninja Gaiden 2 and Blue Dragon. I'm thinking maybe Viva Pinata or Eternal Sonata next.

Crackdown is by far the most fun I've had with a videogame on any of the three systems this generation. It's a definite must play, and it's dirt cheap. I also have Mass Effect, but I kinda got tired of it. Give it a try, but I wasn't big on the combat. I wish it felt as solid as something like GRAW2.

Yeah, that is how it worked for me. loaded it to the hard drive then only needed my original oblivion disk. I think that is the reason we never saw the shivering isles for rent.

You think that's bad, the GS where I got my copy had at least 25 copies, most of which were mint looking. But I've read nothing but good things about ME and I was a huge fan of the KOTOR games.

Mass Effect is definitely worth it! The beginning is a bit slow, but the endgame was awesome.

I picked up used copies of:
Dead Rising
Madden 09

I picked up Civ Rev and Too Human last week using the ToysRUs deal...Both good games, worthy of picking up with the 25%coupon +edge.

So its been a good two weeks for deals.

I saw some 360 games for 50% off in a bin, but then there were other copies in the 360 section that were not 50% off. What gives...?
