Oh, and also say good-bye to the PSN 3000 points codes.
I loved that they were there and I went to get some today, and they are gone.
That didn't last very long........

They've been appearing and disappearing very quickly. It'll likely be back, though.

Is it ironic at all that the "Steal of the Week" is you giving them your copy of Mario All-stars for $20 in credit? Aren't they doing the stealing then?


$20 for a $30 game seems pretty good.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

And with the PUR bonus it's $22.

Compare that with current values elsewhere:

Best Buy: $8 ($11.20 possible with preorder)
Amazon: $18.90 (case and manual required)
Cashforgamers.com: $10

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Granted you can get $20+ on ebay after fees and shipping and whatnot, but that takes more effort and isn't much better.

Steal of the Week updated. Lame, but at least it's something everyone can use.

For all the points hoarders out there... this was just added to the "coming soon" pile. Never played Warhammer, but this looks epic enough to want.

"Ornamental weapon"? That's B.S. I want the real thing.

I am waiting for my B2G1 coupon and I had a question about it. Is this coupon good for New games or just Used ones?

Thanks, I thought so but the GS chick kept saying I could use it for New AND Used... I also tried to tell her and the people in front of me that Modern Warfare 3 was not going to sell out and there was no need to pre-order...

Didn't know about the whole Kongregate thing, thanks! I'm nowhere near enough to get something worthwhile, so I'll just build up for now.

Speaking of Kongregate : I don't think I saw it mentioned in this thread, so :

They have some game called "War Metal Tyrant" that they're pushing hard right now (gamestop keeps giving out nag-cards when you buy something). You get powerup points based on the level of the game you get to :

50 just to play, 100 - level 2, 250 - level 5, 500 - level 10.

I don't use Kongregate so I have no idea what that entails, but the nag-card claims that its free, so for people needing some points, its an option.

Just wanted to mention it. :)

I just got my b2g1. The expiration date is pretty soon. When I first did the PUR the coupon lasted for 3 months? Guess Im going to have to use it kinda soon before all these games start coming out.

Found it, it goes by just "Tyrant" (it's an MMO CCG :-#). They have it on the main splash page. The payout goes like this:

Play the Game: 50 points
Reach Level 2: 100 points
Reach Level 5: 250 points + Sweepstakes Entry for $10,000 gift card
Reach Level 10: 500 points + another Sweepstakes Entry

However, the Sweepstakes mentioned getting a code in order to enter. It's free to obtain from all Gamestop locations, I'm just not sure if it's need to get the PUR points.

I've never used a "code" but I've gotten my 150 points for getting the first two levels.

The game's not that bad, but it's rather dull for a CCG, just like all the other online CCGs on Kongregate.

Guess it's just for the sweepstakes then. Would you say it'd be a grind to get to level 10? I don't buy much from Gamestop, so I build points pretty slowly. I wouldn't mind getting to level 10 if it'd get me near 1000 points.

Yes, it does take a while. I've probably played close to 2 hours or so and I'm level 4 right now. But you're also limited by "energy" which you expend playing battles, which recharges over time, so you can't just play for 4 hours straight and hit level 10 that way.

I'm not exactly sure how this week's SotW works. I guess what I'm trying to say is: do you get a 25% bonus when you put the credit towards an unreleased game that you want to pre-order, or do you get it when you trade towards the full purchase of a game that you already pre-ordered?

And does this stack with the extra $10 for 3 since it's a PuR coupon?

In my "messages" section of PUR it tells me there are 7 of them made. Literally seven chainswords made. Period. If I had the points, I'd hop on this one for sure.

if it's really only 7 made I'm sure that'll go way up in value. still pissed at myself for not jumping on the New Vegas bundles they had.
