Man, after last month I was hoping for better... I think we all were.

The March coupons were probably BB doing some spring cleaning. Honestly I doubt BB can pull off the same promos as March every month for a $15 per year subscription.

There goes me considering picking up homefront.

Yeah, the online pass really makes me less likely to pick up homefront, even for the tiny cost that it is...

The $5 game absolutely not but the B:AC, FF deals yes. BB is extremely happy with the results from March but they will adapt if the $5 single issue sales aren't good enuf. The total # of mags in circulation is key since the advertisers can be charged more money & BB is still getting $5 per mag to boot. There's also the inpulse buying from extra foot traffic & people paying $2 per game for their warranty as add ons.

Out of the 10 mags per yr I expect 5 epic ones, 3 good ones & the rest will vary based on used game availability & game tastes. PS vita games & 3ds games will start to trickle in as well.

I am working a way to get even better deals than these along with ways for us to make our own deals on games we want

Taken from Wikipedia page.

"Each new copy of Homefront contains an online pass, enabling users the full multiplayer experience. Although the online pass is not required to play multiplayer, those who play without an online pass will be capped at level 5 out of 75."

At least you will still be able to play online, even if it is still only to level 5. Probably enough of a tryout to decide if you want to pay for the online pass.

I personally can't stand playing online shooters (I'm fairly anti-social online), so I'll probably just pick it up for the single player campaign and not even touch online content.

For the record, I LOVED the multiplayer in Homefront. Then again, I'm the same guy that played Medal of Honor and Killzone 3 over BFBC2 and the other shooters around.

Any ideas when this issue will be in stores for sale? Also, this is the issue with the Kid Icarus AR cards in it, correct?

I'd get Homefront for pocket change. I'm probably gonna get it for campaign, but does it require an online pass?

Yes.

To my understanding, you can play multiplayer just fine, but you can't gain XP/"level up" past Rank 5 without it.

Totally in for a Yakuza: Dead Souls. The only problem is the temptation to buy it as soon as the coupon drops rather to wait for them to put it on sale. :D

yakuza dead souls is amazing. i got lucky and got it on release from gamefly, gonna beat it this month and then pick it up this fall for 20 hopefully. would love to get this month for 20, but doubt it. soooo much game packed in this. and i thought i was originally mad cuz it is the exact same world from yakuza 4, but then that makes it so much awesomeness.

So are people starting to receive April's magazine or is the coupon information coming from a different source? I'm wondering what the dates on the coupons are and hoping I get the magazine before Sunday.

Well the start date for the April mag is gonna be 04/08 because the March issue doesn't expire until 04/07. More than likely we won't get the April mags in the mail until next week...

I know the March coupons are good until 4/7, but I thought we'd get the April issue sooner. I believe my March issue arrived at the very end of February.

My March issue came during the first Wednesday of March.

In for Homefront. Res 3 is tempting but I still need to beat 1 and get and beat 2, lol...

Homefront for $2 is a great deal. I'll probably pick it up and resell it if I don't like it.

That's about all the game is good for in this deal, to resell it.

That is if the TIV doesn't plummet first.

What place has a TIV on Homefront that actually makes it worthwhile? I just checked multiple sites and couldn't find a TIV higher than $3.59...

Homefront multiplayer rocked! I played the crap out of it back when it first came out. Awesome deal for less than $5!

I may actually have to pick one of these Homefront games up for myself for $3!! Thanks OP. Maybe there will be a crazy drop on Yakuza towards the end of the month!

I may have to rebuy Homefront to finally finish it for $2 or so. But the rest of the coupons look like they're gonna be wasted next month.

At least this months aren't as good as last months because my start issue is May's issue.

If I can find a used Homefront...maybe. But otherwise, this will be a no go for the month for me.

Looks like I will get Homefront. For that price, I won't worry about online, which was good in the demo but I have Halo Reach and Bad Company 2 for that anyway.

Was hoping for a Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City coupon, oh well. Guess I might rebuy Homefront.
