Hoping for Portal 2 Xbox 360. $13 would be just fine, I just sold my PS3 copy.

A thought on Alice...

I've been playing this for a while now, and I see I'm only 25% of the way through. I'm feeling a bit worn from it, so I'm thinking of switching over to Bulletstorm as a "break". The comments about repetition are true, but there's something about this game that makes you keep going. It's very charming, though the story isn't even that great yet.

Still well worth $15, but if someone is looking for an action packed game...

Out of curiosity, are you playing Madness Returns or the original American McGee's Alice? I had originally started off with AMA and couldn't play it for more than 30 minutes at a time. After killing the second boss I could no longer take the boringness(word?) of it and stopped and went to Madness Returns and am thoroughly enjoying it so far.

Madness returns. I'm going to give it another go tonight, I'm in the Drowned Sailors portion of Ch. 2, which has been dragged out a bit too long.

I finished Chapter 2 and honestly felt the same thing. It was way too long and completely turned me off from the game. Couldn't get myself to finish knowing there were three more chapters.

Just got my Battlefield Bad Company 2! It was the Ultimate Edition with Onslaught mode and Battlefield 1943 codes intact, and even though it said that the VIP code was expired, it still worked! :-D

"These sales" go live about 7 pm central.

However, the 12/21 year-end sale usually goes live during the day sometime.

Yeah, I just finished it last night and I'm pretty much done with it for a while. After the crypt portion (felt so tacked on) and THEN the mini-boss (oh, ANOTHER ink baby...but bigger), I realized that things weren't going to change much going into chapter 3. The charm is starting to wear off considering that the story isn't making any sense at this point.

Spoiler


I wonder if there were some points in the first game that I should know about to have a better grasp.

Getting into Bullletstorm didn't help much either. That's popcorn gaming at it's best, so far.

Hey guys,

I purchased Fight Night Champions back in Dec, 08 and still haven't received it. Anyone else going through the same thing?

Now I've ordered from Gamefly plenty of times and it shouldn't take this long to get to my doorstep even if I did only order 1 game from them.

It also sucks that they don't put any kind of tracking number on single item orders.

Yup...its literally dead.

I re purchased BFBC2 recently and had to sell it back because of the online being dead.

Really bummed that my copy of Shadows of the Damned (PS3) apparently got lost in the mail.

Wish they coulda just sent me another copy, instead of refunding. Been waiting on that game for so long to go on sale.

Hopefully it'll pop up again with the Xmas deals.

Or hopefully it'll just show up at my house tomorrow :D I'll contact GF and let them know of course.

Thanks for the awesome thread btw.

Edit:

Just saw your post, I had an order shipped on Dec. 07. It hasn't arrived either. You should contact GF and see if they'll refund you. Hopefully it'll show up soon for both of us though.

Wouldnt worry yet. Usually takes about 2 weeks for a single game

I've noticed that whenever I order games from gamefly, It's either coming from PA or CA. I live in MA, so the games coming from PA usually are shipping vis USPS and get here in a few days. The ones from CA are fedex'ed and require signature (usually because I buy a bunch of games) but take 3-5 business days. I guess if you live somewhere in the middle of the US, the games will get to you in a few days regardless of which site sends it, but for us coastal folk, it depends.

Contact them. Anytime it goes more than 3-5 days I'll send a friendly "hey where's my games" and everytime I'll receive ship confirmations as replies.

When I order games I get a mix of 2 days or 5 days until they arrive. However twice I got a game after 10 days . All single order games.

It will probably be like most of the monthly sales and go on for a week (or 10 days in this case)/until they run out of stock.

I ordered my LA Noire on Wednesday of last week and got it on Saturday, which is the typical time it takes to get from GF's Austin, TX location to me.

I remember last year - games were out of stock almost 30 mins after the sale started. There were not many re-stocks. I doubt this year will be any different.

Just think of the sale as a huge lightning deal...

Tomorrow, the 21st

The only game I really want is Alice & Vanquish (was a idiot and sold it)

But might pick up Metro 2033, or SOCOM for the right price

Good to know.

Now we just need to know what time it is supposed to start. There are a few games I want to pick up if the price is right.

Did anyone else pick up Battlefield Bad Company 2 and receive the ultimate edition? If so, what system did you order it for? Thanks

Will this Xmas sale just be a nightly like PM start time, or could it start even at 3 AM EST, in a couple hours?
