Regardless, Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is better...assuming they did a good job on the 3DS version that is.


Watch the giantbomb quick look of the 3ds version. Apparently it's awful.

That's sad news.

At least one of the portable versions turned out well I guess.

A few days ago, a God of War Ascension Legacy 500GB PS3 Bundle popped up as a Like New pre-order for about 250. I ordered it on Sunday and it just got canceled on me. :-(

I had never seen an AWD pre-order before. Too good to be true I guess.


Tomb Raider CE was available from AWD as a pre-order, although it didn't last long.

I wish I didn't miss that.


How much was it going for?

Reading this thread almost daily reminds me how it's nuts how much Black Friday pressures retailers to drop games as loss leaders. I bought six of the $25 games from Amazon (BL2, Madden 13, X-COM, Dishonored, 2K13, and WWE 13), and I'm still not seeing the prices on those games used near those new prices. It helps to have a little cash around Black Friday and the time to sit on Amazon, obviously.

For an on-topic question: Does the AC3 steelbook have any resale value? Is it good enough to justify an extra $7 or so?

Yeah, I regret not picking up Dishonored on BF. I just figured it would sit in my backlog until that price point rolled around again.

Problem is, one CAG who bought it got it totally destroyed. I think that was DealSeaker2U, and another got a pristine one. Pretty bad quality checks.

I'm willing to risk it.

Amazon pays return shipping anyway if that happens, right?

It was $18.xx here at the warehouse around that time and I had couple of chances to score it and I didn't. I am still clawing through my backlog or else I would have been kicking myself for missing out on a deal that has yet to repeat itself since.

Yeah I got the one with the tin box destroyed and idd0tt got the one with just a few dings on the tin box. The only 2 people who got it minus any lurkers that I am aware of.

Mine

Happy to have had purchased Dishonored and XCOM Enemy Unknown for $25 each at Black Friday. Very satisfied. These games don't get the credit they rightly deserved.

Also the fact that Dishonored is now considered a "franchise title" and both titles were in nearly every gaming website's top 10 then yeah, I'd it's got the recognition it deserves.

I wonder, though; does Origin work the same way Steamworks does? My copy of the game is digital, so I don't know if it's like Civ V for retail copies, where you have to register the key to your account. If it is, would an AWD copy of the game even be useful?


I have never had an Origin account before, so I guess we shall see what happens when it comes in. Ive never bought a "used" pc game before, so Im not quite sure how it works since usually pc games are basically just a cd-key. Ill keep you posted!

Well I just found out Series 2 Skylanders are backwards compatible with the original portal so I bought a Good Stump Smash for $4.

Lol. Didn't seem like. A lot of people around me didn't seem to care about it. Maybe it's just people around my area.
