Geez.....you know, it's weird. I've been a CAG for years now, and I've seen many GoGamer sales. Not once have I seen anything I really want in one of these sales. So odd. I always see a new "Madness" sale and get excited, and each time I am disappointed. *sigh*


I'm the complete opposite, I've bought a ton of games over the years from gogamer. I've picked up a ton of games for $10 or less, and sometimes less than $5. Of course a lot of those were pc games, but I'm glad to still have a site to go to for good deals on pc games. I've also picked up quite a few console games from gogamer.

I understand the business pov (a little), but how about getting some big name console titles on there quickly? SF4, RE5, Killzone2, etc etc. I know gameroomdeals or whatever (on this forum as well) has some good and recent console deals, though they sell out too damn fast.


Although I wouldn't object to any deals, I like that gogamer has sales on older games. I'd much rather pick up an older game for clearance style prices than see $10 off a brand new game. The industry is too focused on the new and shiny IMO, forgetting about great games once the publisher has refocused the marketing on the next latest and greatest game. When gogamer has a deal on RE5 or Killzone 2, everyone will be asking for a deal on whatever game happens to be the current flavor of the month.

As a PC Gamer, I'm always spending money with GoGamer. Nice variety and awesome prices. The thing I like about it most is that the games I wouldn't have been interested for full price suddenly become a great value at a heavy discount.

I can see how the console gamers might feel a little slighted as PC games tend to make up the bulk of Madness sales, but there are loads of places that cater mainly to console gamers. Let us have our fun! :D

No actually we have had lots of good console deals. Again, what is it you are expecting? What is a good deal to you? Do you see HAWX for 360 anywhere else for lower?

Jason


HAWX 360 is $39.97 at Amazon, free shipping, no tax. $38.99 at Fry's, no shipping required for me (B&M). It's $42.89 (shipping included) plus tax at GoGamer.

I'm not saying GoGamer needs to undersell Amazon across the board (suicide), but HAWX is heavily discounted recently - you might be better served by discounting some titles that aren't on promotion everywhere.

E.g., I haven't bought a lot from GoGamer, but one thing I did buy was EyeToy Kinetic. It's an older title, obviously, but it's hard to find, and especially hard to find new at a discount. It's these second-chance-at-an-oldie-but-goodie items that attract me to GoGamer sales.

How the hell can you rag on GoGamer? Dirt cheap prices ($20 for Stormise...the game has awful reviews, but it came out like a week ago), great customer support and tons of hard-to-find games.

woot! lots of good prices here.

just an FYI, you can register the cd-keys of FEAR 2, dawn of war2 and saints row 2 on steam. perhaps that info might persuade some to pick up a copy :)

EDIT: found the page that lists the cd keys you can register on steam. thought some people might find it useful.

I'm not saying I won't buy anything ever, it's just that it's mostly geared towards PC users and that isn't me. Kudos for keeping the sales up though. No real complaints here.

The problem is that many people in these threads that complain/note nothing is for them don't acknowledge that they must have little interest at all in PC gaming. But even then, saying that there has never been anything to like, console or PC, is a little over a top because they obviously haven't watched GoGamer that closely. . .

Nothing for me this week, but couple weeks ago I did buy Little Big Planet for $25. That was an excellent console deal.

Has anyone played Jericho for PS3? Newegg has it for around the same price, but GoGamer is still cheaper by a little. Might have to pick it up if it's any good.

Hey Jason, any chance we get another 10% off coupon code? Maybe make it an official CAG promotional code.

There are legitimate complaints and then there are these.... Don't pay attention to the whiney complainers. You'll end up expending 90% of your effort on 10% (or less) of your customers.

I've picked up numerous titles from gogamer over the past few years on madness sales, and can safely say that if someone hasn't been able to find even ONE worthwhile title on madness sales, they really ought to expand their gaming horizons.


30 bucks for dow2 = win.


Agreed. GoGamer has some nice sales, even for me (a non-PC gamer!). How 'bout Half-Life 1 (PC) for $5 shipped? Now I don't have to wonder what happened before my copy of OrangeBox on 360! :D

And Simpsons for $10??? You can't beat that! It's an excellent game, if there's anyone out there who has yet to try it!

Thanks, GoGamer! :applause:

Saw the video review on gametrailers and they pretty much said it runs at unplayable framerates. Would avoid that one if I were you. BTW I'm more of a PC gamer myself and I've bought a ton of games from them in the past, no complaints here.

I like GoGamer and have bought from them plenty of times over the years. I can't wait for them to come out with another set of classic PC anthologies again for a madness sale (I missed the Space Quest one :bomb:).

Jason, if you want a hint at what this one gamer is going to be looking for in the next couple weeks, I will be looking for a good price on Tales of Valor. :bouncy:

Waste of time? What games are you looking for? We've literally had thousands of titles on sale over the years. Not one has made you bite? Tell me..what type of games do you want to see on sale without us going broke?

Jason


I love seeing you offer older PC games around $8 or less (the lower the better, of course):D

I hope you still make some money off of them, as I love teh GoGamer.

I also like it when you pull out some oddball stuff like eXperiment, Perry Rhodan, and Armies of Exigo from the last sale. (my order was 22906038 if you want to look at my history, it's a case study of a PC CAG).

When be bought our last batch and we looked we thought we were going to be the lowest, but apparently the source that gave us a deal on HAWX also gave the others a similar deal. Our problem was we sat on it for a week. Well, darn it. I stand corrected then.

I'm always looking for a cheap 360 game from these sales. Seems like they're getting rid of some really old, previously clearenced stuff.

2.99 for the first game and $1 more for each additional title.

I think it's reasonable since not many others can match these prices, plus they have been shipping newer titles with free shipping.


I would say it's more economical to buy many titles and not just 1.

My last purchase had 4.

Remember, GoGamer is much smaller than Amazon... can't afford to free ship everything.

REALLY good prices. i imagine alot of ppl are getting Price Alert emails today.
Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

It's pretty kick ass that a GoGamer rep posts on here and pays attention to what's going on. I've bought from them quite a few times, but then I'm a PC gamer at heart even though I own consoles too.

$30 for DOW2, I might have to bite!

Just like I said, it is usually not worth it for just 1 title.

But where else you getting that for <15?

4 bucks is like a coffee, just sacrifce and it's worth it.... it's not great but good.
