Anyone play Saw? I might consider it for 19.99.


Its not very good. Definitely best left for fans of the series and gamer score whores. Its real easy to get the 1K points in 1 play through and is real short. I think I completed everything in 1 sitting on a rental.

yeah I might get Saw at that price point...i've wanted to give it a go for awhile, even though i hear it's nothing amazing. plus it still resells used for around $25-30 on ebay so you could at least get your money back.

I usually wouldn't post this but my conscience requires it. Do NOT buy Rogue Warrior. It is a terrible game and an absolute rip-off at that price.

hence why i made the sarcastic comment not a few posts previous on this very same page...but the price is still cheaper than it's going for on ebay, which is the point of this thread..and i'm sure there is SOMEONE out there who might have liked it for whatever weird reason...but yeah its not a little known fact that reviews basically destroyed it.

My FV had Bigs 2 at $19.95...? I asked the guy up front if that was the right price and he gave me some bs reason that that game was "newer" than the copies the website sold... What the hell?

its alright, mine has Wheelman for $19.95 still and i am still waiting for it to drop...


but on the other hand, i found Fable 2 for $10 cheaper than the internet price at my store...

Hmmm, don't know if I would call myself a fan of the series since the movies have quickly fallen apart... might wait for it to drop even more then.

Alright, new updates, Avatar, Forza and WWE are new sales for the 360, and Brutal Legend dropped $10. Make sure if you buy Forza in store that the clerk gives you both discs. Enjoy!

Found a PS2 slim at my store today. They tried to tell me 39.95. I told them I thought it was 29.95 online. They came back with 29.95, but only with 1 controller. The other controller they would sell me for 5 bucks and a memory card would be 5 bucks as well. Do I have any recourse or say the hell with it?

Awesome drop on Brutal Legend. My store still had one left on Friday, hopefully I'll be able to grab it tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up.

On a side note, I'm wondering if they'll drop ODST to $30 any time soon. They have at least 5 copies for sale at my store and it doesn't look like they're going anywhere at $40.

BL is $30 online...

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Brutal Legend is so tempting but I already have a huge backlog that I could probably afford to wait out and let it drop in price more.

Looking forward to seeing that Brutal Legend price drop on Wednesday. I'll pick it when it drops online since there aren't any FV within an hour of me.

like other things, my prices are accurate, you could contact the number on the familyvideo.com website and they will fix it. If for some reason that doesn't work, you can PM me and I can take care of it, but since i'm not getting paid to post this stuff, i'd rather the people who ARE getting paid to deal with problems to do so first. If of course that doesn't work, feel free to PM me the problem and the store location...but please try the other option first.

Hmm...I stopped by my store today and Brutal Legend was still marked $29.99 and I also noticed the Forza 3 wasn't marked for sale. I even took Brutal Legend up to the counter to try to get it for $20 and the lady told me it was still $30 and then she called some guy over and he gave me some **** about how it's $20 on the website but $30 in the store because shipping and handling makes it "the same price." I've never had a problem seeing the prices listed here showing up in the store before.

Lol, I only have about 5 ps3 games so far, since I got it a few months ago, but I've only completed one since I was playing Uncharted 2 online so much :P(didn't even finish the single player). Too bad I only borrowed it.
Anyone know if those deals are for PS3 games also? I had no idea FV sold video games :bomb:. At first I thought it did, but never decided to check. I might get Dead Space at that price.

Brutal Legend is $20 now. With $2 shipping, it is extremely tempting. My fingers say yes, my brain says maybe, and my wallet is saying no.

I am pissed off that I traded in two games at Gamestop for $40 off and got Forza 3 for $20 when they will have it for $30 soon

------------------------------------------------

The trade in value on Amazon for BL is $29.50, so you can play it, and return it for a profit.

I would bite on overlord 2 if it were it were in stock. :(

However, I may bite on brutal legend for 19.99.

Im going to try to get Brutal Legend tomorrow...Im worried though that they will still have it at $30 instead of $20. If thats the case and they still wont change it to the right price...THEN I may be calling about the slack job at that store...
