So is the April issue in stores yet? And if so, are the Kid Icarus AR cards in the issue or is it for subscribers only like the Game Informer and Nintendo Power cards?

Why did you waste everyone's time by replying? You violate your own logic.

I stopped by two stores tonight (checking stock on FF, and Batman) and just the March issue still.

Sometimes you just gotta pump the brakes and say "Godjam it, NO MORE!"

My area has no more march issues as these epic stacking deals we have had this month have cleaned them out

I don't want or need FFXII-2, but damn, that's a good deal. I've already played and beaten Homefront, but I'm debating picking it back up for that price.

Will definitely get a copy os Sin and Punishment again. Been wanting to play that some more since playing Kid Icarus.

Since homefront is only 1.19 after the card and coupon you would be crazy to not pick it up no matter if you have played it or not. I forgot if it has offline coop or not. If it does then me and my father could kick some ass together :)

Quick question, so none of the stores around me have Homefront available. However it says "Usually ships to store 3-5 days" so could I purchase it and when I go pick it up, hand them the coupon and just pay the rest?

crap, and I just bought Yakuza Dead Souls for $45. Oh wait...I paid cash, no tax. So that'll still be around $45 if I used that deal.....okay nvm

but if/when it goes on sale for $40 it would be $30 after coupon & unless tax = $15 you overpaid

Beware that if you want to play Resistance 3 online, it does have a $10 online pass so factor that in while looking at the pre-owned price. In my opinion, this was the most broken online shooter I have ever played. After a player gains some killstreaks, they are able to get this shield that makes them invulnerable. The only way to kill them is to shoot them in the back before they notice you. I'm all for rewarding players for performing good, but having the equivalent of a World of Warcraft Paladin shield in a FPS is just stupid.

I hope The Darkness 2 ends up being $20 or less after combining the coupon with a sale, otherwise I can wait. Thanks for the post, OP.


The nice thing about Resistance 3 is that if all you care about is getting a platinum, you don't need the online pass. There are no online trophies in the game. There are some co-op trophies, but they can be done split screen.

They go to a warehouse where they're distributed to other stores. There's some formula to it. I like to call it 'communism'

I heard the online coop was the best part of the game. Might break down and give it a try.

I heard they send the used games to the stores that take in the most trades.

For GCU purchases as far as it goes for reward pts I wish they would round UP instead of down. GS PUR rounds UP.

Personally, I would send them to the stores that BUY the most used games...maybe there is a direct correlation between used trades and store buys but I doubt it with the potential for flippers to skew the numbers.

I have a question. I just joined the @Gamer club this week, so I probably won't get my April Magazine in the mail in time. Can I just go into the store and get my magazine?

I really want Homefront for $3!

Not really but you can if you get ymmv lucky. I went through this, complained with customer service and got a flat no. Went into the store, showed them my receipt and told them cs said it was legit and they were fine with it.

Heading to BB tomorrow for AC and FFX13-2. I wonder if they will have the April Mags tomorrow?

I actually liked 3 better because we could enjoy the whole campaign story together, I do wish there some some asymmetry in co op players though.

$30 off metroid other m and sin and punishment?

Gamestop now has "metroid other m" at $9.99 new http://www.gamestop....d-other-m/75084
and sin and punishment at $19.99 new http://www.gamestop....successor/75107
If bestbuy has these games less than $20 after coupon... then i'll probably bite.

my grrl and i just played resistance 3 co op until the game just wouldnt let us go any further. There must have been a badguy that didnt register or something cuz the barn door would never open and this was farely beginning of the game. so then she dropped out and no more co op ;)

anyone know if bb automatically gives you rz certificates everytime u get 250 pts? i thought before you could choose when to cash the pts in for a certificate, but they just gave me one for making 250 pts and i never chose to redeem them.

Didn't you feel as though that was a dumb question when you posted it?

Probably not. It says that coupons can't be combined on the back of the all the coupons and the system usually won't automatically deduct both offers, it'll just apply one or the other even if you get a nice CSR to try...

You can set your preferences to automatically give you certificates when you reach a certain amount of points or you can bank them until you're ready to use them. Your preferences are probably set to redeem automatically when you reach 250 points.
