I hear ya man. At least they used to drop blu's pretty fast down to $9.99 so they would qualify for the 4 for $20 sales. They haven't dropped anything down to $9.99 in a very very very very long time. Everything is stuck at $12.99 or $16.99 for their 2 for $20 promotion.

It's ridiculous when Best Buy is having such amazing bluray deals and BBV wants $16.99 for used, opened, rental versions with no special features, no traditional bluray case, no DVD copy, and no Digital/ultraviolet copy. Last I checked, blurays like Red Riding Hood, Transformers 3, and True Grit are still stuck at $12.99 and $16.99 unless the employees at my store haven't labeled movies correctly down to $9.99.

I think it would be fun to create a CAG poll on who has seen a recent BBV price drop Vs. who has seen Kinect Adventures tagged $34.99 or higher. I think the latter would win.

Attn all south Orange County (CA) CAGs, one of the last remaining Blockbusters in the area is closing. In Laguna Niguel, at Alicia and Pacific Park.
Used games are only at 20% off their retail price, so don't rush out or anything. I only looked in the PS3 section, there were a few relatively new titles, and a lot of overpriced old junk. I saw
Dragon's Dogma
Spec Ops the Line
Prototype 2
marked $50, so 40 bucks after discount. But if you wanted those games, you could've gotten them for 40 new by now.
All previously viewed Blu Rays were $7.99, I got Megamind, Real Steel, and the Three Stooges. I have boys.
And with that, I lay a wreath upon this thread and commit it to eternal slumber.

I was at a store today and they had a flyer for a Memorial Day sale. 50% off used movies and 75% off framed art. It didnt say if it stacked with the 4 for $20. No video games mentioned.

The store here in Tampa almost has more used games than games for rental right now. For some reason they converted all 3 of their copies of Skyward Sword for the Wii ( seems like something people would still rent).

When I think of all of the games I've picked up at the various sales versus the level of sucktitude that was that last sale that equaled out to a B1G1 50% sale I get sad.

Although if Dish had not bought out the remnants of Blockbuster, then this thread might be a long forgotten memory by now or at the most we would be talking about how horrible the discounts are at the national liquidation sales as the entire chain gets closed down.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

blockbuster.com is fail, the games section says Dishonored is available to rent in store but the game was delayed until October lolol

Movie selection for the sale is okay but nothing I want. I did get an Iron Giant poster for $2.69 since I'm a really big fan of the film. And my Madden 13 rental came with an unused online pass, woo hoo!

I'd like to try out Darksiders 2 or P4 Arena before I play Borderlands 2 though.

With the death of this thread (and HWV before it) I find myself on CAG a lot less. It is so much harder to find decent, newish games for ~$5 these days.

I stopped into my nearby BBV on the way home today to check and see if they knew anything about a potential game sale coming up for Labor Day.

The only sale they're having right now is a 50% off pre-owned movies deal for this weekend apparently. But since most of them are $9.99 apiece that means they're $5 each.:roll:

I also noticed that Dish jacked up the formerly $.99 movies(The Informant, Sex & The City 2, etc) to $2 apiece. You can tell they were the former $1 ones cuz of the white stickers over the UPC's on the back.

About the only thing that some of you may want to check out is the 75% off on framed artwork/posters for this weekend.

While there I checked their game selection and honestly there's not much in the way of games that would qualify for the old BOGO's or even that 3/$15 or 5/$25 like they had last fall. Not to mention Dish must not pay any attention to gaming news, since pre-owned copies of Uncharted 3 were still marked $29.99.:lol:

Not only that but they had ZERO copies of most of the newer releases. Although, as expected they had almost a full row of fuckin' Madden.:roll: Oh and it's $2.99 for the first night with some 'blue carpet' rental bs I guess they're promoting now.:-#

Oh well. RIP Blockbuster. And Dish can suck the big one as far as I'm concerned.

That's great if you rent stuff regularly. But there's not many games or movies I really want to play or watch nowadays that I don't just wait until they hit their absolute lowest price I've seen and then pick them up.

If I've gone to even Redbox and rented a movie more than 3x since they really got wide distribution(and they're oversaturated around here imo), then it's a miracle.:D

Combo pass is nice, but they only get 3-4 copies of each game. By the time I get off work all copies are gone which nobody returns till month later. I'm stuck with Gamefly playing old games as I never get new releases.

I must be really lucky then. I've been able to rent Spec Ops: The Line, Sleeping Dogs, Transformers FOC, and currently Madden 13 over the last month. I don't mind waiting it out for a copy since it usually takes me a week or two to get through a game.
