SO uh.. Is Darksiders II better than one? Been debating about getting it for the Wii U. I liked the first one but got bored half way through and never finished. I felt it bad some good ideas, but got repetitive. Not sure if the 2nd one is like that too.

Sounds like confirmations are coming in that another short supply was sent to retailers today (I can confirm that the BB in my area received more as well).

My GameStop today got 1 black and three whites. I happened to be there while they were opening them up. All four were bought by 4 people who were already in the store browsing.

Walmart won't charge until the entire order ships or you cancel the outstanding part of the order.

I settled on a PDP branded protector yesterday. I'm gonna apply it sometime over the thanksgiving holidays.


I bought that one. Two protectors for $9.99. I got it on pretty quick with no bubbles and minimal particles trapped underneath. It looks and feels really good.

How long is the Target preorder hold period for? One week? I'm showing a couple stores in the area with stock, but I think they're preorders. Other than that it's bone dry around these parts.

I'd be pissed if they sold something I had on layaway. I wonder if those people are still guaranteed a console whenever new ones come in, or if their layaways get just cancelled completely.


When I talked to the woman at layaway when I placed the pre-order, she told me it will sit in the back until I come and get it, or until Dec. 14. I think this guy's Wal-Mart manager is just a a$$hole. Layaway is not backup inventory... people have put down deposits knowing that they have a certain time limit to pay off their things. The Wii U pre-orders are no different.

The Walmart stores around me just received shipment on both sets. I'm pretty sure there are handfuls at most, if not all, stores nationwide. No substantial profit for flippers until the holiday season.....:D

Both of mine are on the truck and out for delivery today. So here's to hoping they arrive in one piece.

I've been able to find white basic sets almost everyday since launch, but can't find a deluxe, which is what I want.

I'm also hitting toys r us on my way home to take advantage of the B1G1 40% off. I think im grabbing Mario and Scribblenauts.

Yeah. I checked using major cities, ie Chicago/Seattle, as bases. They showed in stock at most stores for the deluxe. Didn't bother checking the Basic set.

I was 4th on the wait list at my local GS. They called today and said they had a deluxe for me. Also said not to worry because they were getting another shipment before the weekend.

If you have a Best Buy store near you, they will price match.

I do have quite a bit of Best buy credit, but thought my luck of getting that matched would be low. I intended on using the credit towards the system if I could find a deluxe at a best buy, but right now I will take the system anywhere i can find it.

Isn't the matching of the TRU ad very YMMV?

Everything is YMMV when it comes to Best Buy and their mismanagement.

Thanks, but to be fair that's how most screen protectors work. :-#


I know but other CAGs were poo-pooing the PDP set because they couldn't figure it out so I thought it was worth mentioning. It's one of the better screen protectors sets I've bought and the extra styluses are nice.

Took advantage of the B1G1 40% off at TRU with two of the Flingsmash/Wii MotionPlus bundles. $43.07 after tax. Great idea for anyone needing extra Wii MotionPlus remotes!

Me, too! No more extra long Wiimotes for me.

Edit: TIV $2 each (100% bonus included) at Best Buy.

Well, it's all about quality. I've used both in the past. The PDP is not horrible, and it does keep your screen protected.

That said, I installed a Hori on one of my DS Lites, and a PDP on the other.
After a year's use, I went and removed the Hori, and the screen was ready for application of a new protector within seconds.
When I removed the PDP protector, there was a film on my screen that took more than a few minutes to remove, and left the screen with a rainbow effect until I got it all off. They claim there's nothing there, but obviously they're not of the same quality as Hori.

Where did you end up buying this and how much?
Thanks


I got the Nerf armor at my local Best Buy. $19.99. Available with blue, pink, or orange accents.

I'm very happy with it. Far better than going bareback.
