The video says 6 episodes so I would guess 3-4 hours? Maybe 5.

Oh I saw the video just now too, looks like not a lot of content on the co op side, bummer.
Thanks cancer.

same here, my backlog is just staring back at me. Especially since I have work, it leaves very little time for gaming. my backlog will probably take me till 2014 to get through them all with my schedule, Lmafo. first world problems


im not even sure 2014 is enough time lol. then there is my movie and TV backlog...then there is my book backlog...

maybe im some sick person that enjoys backlogs?

It doesn't seem like most CAGs are interested in Far Cry 3 based on the poll. I wasn't either until I saw this really well made trailer, so give 10 minutes to check it out before passing on this title. :)


Wow, this video just convince me as well. Will be preordering it tomorrow since I have the BLOPS 2 RZ cert ready to print.

I received my A3 points several days ago. Used them and an extra $5 cert I had earned towards Far Cry 3.

You're not alone. I feel sometimes that the pursuit of games and gaming deals is more fun than playing them...lol. Maybe they should rename the site to Cheap Ass Backlogger. :D

Got my AC3 points exactly 2 weeks after I picked it up. Got my BLOPS2 points last Tuesday. I'm silver since that seems to matter.

I hope the "Skyrim with guns" statement holds true!

I just received my BLOP 2 certs last week. This week if I PM frys at $49 does it affect anything since I already got the $20 for per-order?

Tell them you want to PM but make sure they don't return and rebuy it should say price adjustment or exchange on your receipt for you to not lose out on the $20 cert.

No but the game is not even out in the US yet. Being Ubisoft I think there will be a chance in 30 days.

I am currently scheming to save some money on Far Cry next week and wanted some input from my fellow CAGs.

I want to PM Toys R Us' buy 1 get 1 50% for next week (I know that in of itself is YMMV, but I have had success at my local Best Buy before). Yesterday I bought Playstation All Stars at full price, so my plan was to do a return rebuy of that long with Far Cry to get the deal.

The catch is that I used a $25 reward certificate when buying All Stars (and a $10 Gift Card), so the price on the receipt is $35. Is it possible for me to return this and get the full $60 back (in credit) to apply to my $90 purchase of All stars and Far cry?

None whatsoever

Shucks! thanks for the quick reply.. Another silly question: I also bought Hitman last week at full price, but it came with a $20 Gift Card. Would doing a return rebuy on that work? Or will they subtract $20 from the return amount?

So I got the thanksgiving cert of $5 ($5-$5000) and I went to BBY to use it to preorder GTA V, then they told me that I can't use certs for pre-order
I tried adding $5 cash to the pre-order totalling to $10 to see if that would work but it didn't

They said something about a change in the system where you no longer can use certs for pre-order or something

is this true?

anyway I ended up leaving the damn place furious

It's true, and I think it's because the certs act to reduce the price of the item, which I suspect makes things really difficult for the IT guys when it's used as a preorder payment and has yet to reduce anything.

Haven't seen my halo points yet. I had to fight like crazy with customer service for my Dishonored one.

Really wanna use my halo rewards on far cry. Hope it happens, game looks crazy good.

Thanks for the info, guys. I preordered all of my games this year with $5 certs, but I guess I'll have to pony up the cash this time! No biggie.

To anyone wondering if they can do b2g1 free 39.99 and under and still get 20 dollar certs, yes, it's sort of worked for me so far (the next few lines explain why it's sort of worked, you just got to also prepay for the entire game though except for the taxes at the time of pre-order). I still have to call reward zone and complain that I didn't get my 1000 points so I could get a 20 dollar cert but I was told by my local store to call and get it resolved since that's what the employees have to do themselves sometimes when they buy games.

Can you still use the certificates to preorder games online?

PC, Wii, or any other platform of any of the titles does not qualify as a purchase towards this promotion.

Wish I'd seen that earlier. I called Reward Zone twice to ask why my points hadn't even shown up yet for my PC version of Black Ops II.

However, they did give me a $10 reward certificate after each call, so I guess I did get $20 in the end.

Yes, I used a $20 RZ cert for my Far Cry 3 pre-order. Best Buy has already shipped my copy out yesterday.

I already have a post created on the ideas page that with enuf support should get PC versions of games included into most if not all BB gaming promos going forward. Not sure why they don't already though will post a link when I get to my pc

Still no word on a cheaper FC3 release price that can be PM'ed?

I mean, I along with many, agree that being a Ubisoft game, well probably see one within 60 days, but at least $49.99..hell, $54.99... would be nice to see. If that we're the case, I'd only be paying $24ish after my preorder and certs!

Why so worried? Seems likely that there will be a sale within a couple weeks. You don't need to keep posting about it.
