Well damn...guess I have to find a way to keep these Wii games. I bought ToSymphonia 2 as well as Sam & Max while passing through some of the only places in my area of NC that had them used, and the 7-day period is up tomorrow.

I wonder if I could return/rebuy tomorrow using the 10% off coupon, and then take them back next week (hopefully) using the 20% Wii coupon.

I just noticed today when I picked up a few games that as long as you pay with credit you dont have to pay tax. This makes a big difference when buying a few of the more expensive games.

Not in all states. Mine is a state if you pay with GS credit and completely cover the cost with the GS credit, no taxes. Even if you don't cover the full amount, you only have to pay tax on the amount not covered. Definitely nice.

Thats the same thing I said to the GS employee today when i bought Eternal Sonata. He told me the total was 41.xx. I looked at him like what are you talkin about:hot: I then said I was paying with credit. The total came up to $38.49 as long as the credit covered the cost. good deal8-)

any thoughts on whether Far Cry 2 is worth the $25 or so that it'd be with the coupon?

Damn Mass Effect is just $10.49 after 20% and edge! You think it worth to pick it up now or wait for the rumored 2-disc version coming out next month?

How about Sega Superstars Tennis? Any good? I have Virtua Tennis 3 on my backlog. Is the game play similar? Would it be worth it to pick it up for $6.99?

I personally hated the game... I had it and traded it in the very next day. However, I heard it is 100x better for PC and PS3 than it is for 360. The gameplay was just repetitive and boring for 360 and the online multiplayer made me want to kick over a magazine rack.

Insert thoughts here...

are there any 360 game deals (whether the game is rare or underpriced) that are good deals w/the 20% off coupon?

Reason I ask is cause I have ran out of inventory flipping stuff and always curious for new goods. :)

I have Far Cry 2 for PS3 and its tied with Valkyria Chronicles for my personal Game of the Year.

Some people can't deal with the repetitiveness and some can. I found it quite fun to take on every enemy encounter (and there were MANY) in a new and different way. You can go stealth with a silenced gun, use rockets, blast them head-on with shotguns, mow them down with a jeep, throw grenades, light the grass and trees around them on fire and watch them run around on fire.

Each encounter you get better and more efficient. If you just accept the fact that this game exists simply to give you a bunch of manned areas throughout Africa to test your ability to take everyone out using DOZENS and DOZENS and DOZENS of weapons and a nice collection of vehicles, then you'll have a blast.

It's all about experimenting and trying new ways to take out enemies.

In terms of Mass Effect, the DLC that is included in the 2-disc edition (and there's nothing rumored about it) is worth $5 itself, so you may want to bear that in mind.

The link is for the ad. The way CAG does the affiliate links doesn't like the direct link to the PDF.

NBA 2K9 here I come.


Has anyone successfully used the $10 off coupon for 2k games to buy a used copy of nba 2k9? I know it says you can't use it for used games, that's not what I'm asking.
I'm attempting to sell some rarities:

-SCPH-1110 (aka sony ps1 flightstick)
-R4 box with Jogcon controller and t-shirt (JP)
-Earthbound, complete

What are you asking then?

I recommend it, even though I only played for about 30 minutes. I got about +100 gamerscore from doing the first part of the game, and it was pretty fun.

I really want to pick up Tomb Raider Underworld, but I can't keep my CAG senses from telling me it'll be $35 used in a month or two.. then waiting for another 20% coupon would be better..
