From the videos I've seen it looks like a frustrating game to play but if you are looking for filler till ssb 3d comes out (I know I am) this could do the trick for the right price. I'll consider it for less than 20


I'd say no. It's more side-scrolling fighter than SSBB IMMO. Plus it takes forever to unlock interesting characters.

I wouldn't touch mercenaries with a 10 foot pole with that nasty drm they put in it. You can't delete your save data so you have no option but to play it once and not be able to start again lots of people who are getting it have no idea of this which is a shame. Bad milkcom, very bad

Do we know if that $20 off Sims 3 is for the PC? Let's hope, as I can use my $10 off @Gamer coupon and get it for $9.99.

Yea the character unlocking sucks really bad. You have to unlock them twice. To get them for mp you need to win over 70 online matches total and for single player you have to Beat that half assed looking subspace missionary with the regular characters. Who came up with that dumb idea ?

Well, looks like I can finally offload my unused DSi now. Will be preordering Battlefield 3 and picking up RE: Mercenaries. Might pick up Shadow Wars as well for some play time with the bro for the 11-hour car ride that night.

I bought Dead or Alive on 8/10 for $40 at Best Buy. I still have the receipt. If I bring the receipt into the store will they give me back the difference? I have some sort of 30 day price match, right?

Hopefully Amazon will match Resident Evil for $20. I have a some Amazon credit and not a whole lot of cash atm.

Too bad AMZ doesn't sell BB gc's like they do for target & GS.

if so that'll mean all the coupons this month stacked

Damn that's a great price for DOAD and RE Mercenaries! Sucks I just picked DOAD up this past week at Gamestop, but I might snag Mercenaries at that price.

Anyone have any opinions on the Rocketfish 3DS kit? I did see one review on a tech site, but figured maybe someone around here has tried one?

I wanted to get the 3DS Executive Case, but this has some cool things with it and is at an okay price, so I am considering it.

So you can get zelda for 10 with a 3ds purchase ? I would jump on that if I didn't have a 3ds already


that's the best deal for zelda if you didn't have a dsl/i/XL to trade in or didn't trade in the week before for GS's promotion.

I bought the executive case a few days ago and I really like it.

I was thinking the exact same thing but I'm not looking to buy a 3ds just yet. It's tempting but I'm hoping there will be better bundle deals come BF.

It looks like I'm finally going to pick up Mercenaries. Although I'm dreading the time sink, as a buddy of mine already put in 90 hours into that game.

Mercenaries is a definite buy for me at $20, even with the bad reviews.

I was thinking about preordering Gear of War 3 and since I have the $20 off Gears triple might as well go ahead preorder.

Does anyone know what kinda of adjustment Best Buy would do if you used a reward certificate to buy a game then it was on sale the following week?

So I bought Mercs during Amazon's handheld sale for $30. Do they have any kind of price adjustment service for things you already bought or do I need to just return it? I also assume I'd have to pay for shipping if that were the case...

Hey, how can you say no to a free game & the pre-order is refundable. http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=298145


Does anyone know what kinda of adjustment Best Buy would do if you used a reward certificate to buy a game then it was on sale the following week?

The points are refunded to your account...
If you buy a $60 game paid $20 cash/$20 gc/$20 RZ cert & the game goes on sale for $30 they'd refund $20 worth of RZ points & give you a $10 gc back.
Basically they refund in order RZ cert 1st, gc & finally cash.

I heard Punch Time Explosion was OK, but not as good as it could be. Will be picking that + Dead or Alive Dimensions up for $20 each though.

I didn't expect Bestbuy to have a $20 gc with this game but at least a $10 or $15 gc to match target or something. I know they can't possibly think that the only people that are interested in this game are gamers club members. And I'm sure others don't want to pre-order due to their bad history of Bestbuy selling out their game that they pre-ordered which is unfair.

I really think everyone should not buy RE5 Mercenary 3D. Meh, to each his own.

I do plan to get Dead or Alive 3DS Dimension at that price. I like how it bounce from up to down... in price I mean.
