People still use meticritic ? Lmao. Users who are fanboys will mark ps3/360 games down with 2/10 scores and such and that website hand pics its reviews to post. A bunch of sites that gave uncharted 3 great scores weren't put on meticritic bit as soon as that 4/10 score came out it was put on meticrics site two minutes later ! Anyway Fuck reviewers as they are Always payed off with swag and stuff (remember those 850$ swag bags for halo 3 ?). Gaming journalism went down the toilet this gen. Whew I'm tired lol

Anyway assassins creed is a great franchise !


Yeah I never let metacritic make a decision for me but I always wonder when a game is scoring in the 8-9 and then some random website gives it a 4 or 5. The reality is we hear 8 now and think it is a crap score when in reality it should be a good score.

I haven't played any AC games but it seems that they all look the same??? Maybe that's why they gave it a 8.5?


they're ok. I really enjoyed he first one, and the second one made some vast improvements. I haven't played three because it's just more of the same. Maybe I'll playing one day. The later games haven't grabbed my attention like the first one did.

Exactly ! 8 is a very good score its just the extreme fanboys have somehow devalued it. If the game is great to you than that's what counts. Why should a grown person let someone (in this case a reviewer) tell them what's good and what isn't ? The only way reviewers are usefull to me is if major glitches are reported and such but thats it

Anyway back on topic. A poster here told me his gamestop is opening at 12 on bf. Is this confermed to be nationwide or is it ymmv ?

Kmart had it for $39.99

Spoiler
about 2-3 weeks ago, if I remember correctly. How much cheaper were you looking for it for?


Not the person you quoted, but I'd be down for $30 or less. I mean, if UC3 and B:AC are hitting $30 on BF, surely Dark Souls can too.

Is $199.99 not good enough?

Wat. Bundle BS? It's cheaper than the regular iteration during this sale. You are opposed to free video games? Otherwise it's exactly the same.

Not wanting free games is a cag crime ! Shrike should ban him for that very reason.

Is amazon gonna have the $199 PS3 bundle? I'm guessing yes, but was wondering if anyone has heard anything official. I was gonna get the Uncharted Bundle, but my Target was out and Amazon hasn't matched yet.

I apologize ahead of time if this question has been asked. I know that Walmart price matches black friday deals as I have done it before but can you price match a doorbuster deal? I will be heading to Walmart for the blu's and games that go on sale at 10:00 and I really want to get Uncharted 3 at Best Buy but my Best Buy is a madhouse on black friday and I try to avoid it, so I was hoping to price match best buys ad at walmart, but I want to know what other people experiences have been with price matching a doorbuster deal at walmart. Thanks...

I sure hope there aren't any PS3 shortages. Back in 2009, I was able to get a 360 on Black Friday no problem so hopefully this year will be the same.

Well from my experiences of price matching at walmart during black friday, you can only match the deal while it's active, so you will have to wait until 12 to price match best buy. At least that's how it was everytime I have done it, the manager might let you buy it early but that's defiantly ymmv because they are suppose to only PM while the offers are active.

same here I want to get one from my job at target since it would be $180 after the discount, but I have to wait until break before I can do any shopping. Thats bullshit, but so is life 83% of the time. ;)

How fast do you think stores will go out of sale of the Holiday Bundles for PS3/360?

If I can't pick it up on Amazon, I don't really want to go through the havoc of jumping to multiple stores.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

Is the Best Buy deal in store only, or can you order online and pickup in-store later.

Agree, especially if you're an avid gamer and already own the "hot" titles

Just wondering, when can we get the black friday ads? I plan to go to a Walmart but I'm going to need to a Best Buy ad to price match. So I was wondering when is it possible to actually pick up the Black Friday ads for stores.

I remember last year BestBuy.com had the movies on sale for Black Friday too, so I think there's a good chance, video games, movies will be available online too.
