Isn't prototype 2 part of this as well? Is it $20 as well?

Can you still pick up the mags in store, or have they moved on to the next issue?

Thanks for posting op. Would have picked up ME3 if I wasn't still waiting for my first Gamer mag to arrive >_>

Darn, wish the prices were reversed, still feel like $20 might be too much for LPCS.

Cool to finally see a price drop though.

I think $20 is still too much for Lollipop. I'll be picking up Mass Effect 3 in a few hours :)

Good find. But it looks like I'm not using any of my coupons this month. I'd rather put $40 towards RE6 than Lollipop and Prototype.

Was hoping for a $10 Lollipop, since the reviews were pretty crappy, and a $10-15 Prototype.

Might pick up LC when I go to get my RE6 pre-order on Tuesday. Need to trade a few more games in as well before the 100% bonus expires.

Can we used the mass effect coupon with the PS3 collectors edition. Sorry if this has been asked but I just had to make sure.

Yeah, would have grabbed LC for $10 or $15 but at $20 I'd say it's out of my cheapass range.

Gotta love timely MSRP drops like this making coupons useful when Best Buy didn't. And they would have gotten away with it, if it weren't for these meddling manufacturers. I'm glad I didn't pick up ME3 yesterday. I did finally get Prototype 2 for 20, so good choice on my part

Watching The Waling Dead on Netflix right now. I'll get lollipop just because I'm super in the mood for zombies!!!!! And I'll get ME3 if they have it in stock. Why not.

The deal hunter in me is dying to pick up PS3 versions of ME3 and Battlefield 3 for $10 even though I own both for Xbox 360. I guess I am just anxious to feel like I am getting something out of the coupons before they expire. Any justification for either game on PS3 if I already own them on Xbox?

I just finished Lollipop Chainsaw - it is really really fun. Very funny. Also pretty easy to 1k. For 20$ it is a no-brainer.

If Lollipop was just $5 cheaper, I'd be all over it. With RE6 and NBA 2K13 though, I'm not sure. Loved it, but I know it should be cheaper down the road. I'll probably pass.

With ME3, is it worth waiting for a decent price on the trilogy if I've never played any ME game before?

In for ME3 for $10. I'm not so sure about Lollipop Chainsaw for $20. I have a $5 RZ cert but I doubt that is enough to get me to bite on LC.

Honestly, you'd probably be better off hunting down each game individually (you can get ME1 from BBY for $7.99 by PMing the online price, ME2 can be had for under $20 if you look around, and ME3 for $10 with the coupon is an easy choice), unless you're planning on playing the trilogy on :ps3:, in which case you have options:

You can wait for a deal on the trilogy to get a disc-based copy of ME1 or you can download ME1 on the PSN Store when it becomes available and buy the other two installments separately (ME2 for :ps3: comes with all the DLC).

Of course, we have yet to find out whether the :ps3: version of the trilogy will include any DLC or none at all like the :360: and PC versions.

I'm not sure if you were implying this option, but I highly suggest you do not play ME3 without having played the prior two installments, just so you can maximize your enjoyment of the series.

It was going to be 360, so I guess I'll search out single copies. Thanks!

You're welcome!

If you're interested in the many pieces of DLC, I think that there's a very high chance it will go on sale on XBL this fall (unless I'm mistaken, it's been that way for a couple of years now), possibly to coincide with the release of the trilogy. I recommend the following:

ME1
Bring Down the Sky (if you buy a Platinum Hits edition, this is included on a bonus disc, so don't worry about finding it)

ME2 (in no particular order)
Zaeed (Character/Mission DLC)
Kasumi: Stolen Memory (Character/Mission DLC)
Overlord
Lair of the Shadow Broker
Arrival

ME3
From Ashes (Character/Mission DLC)
Extended Cut (just because it's free)

If there's anything exceptional that I forgot (and to ME-players, I intentionally excluded ME3's Leviathan DLC), someone else can point it out. :)

I played ME2 first and enjoyed it so much that I bought ME1. If you like that type of game, definitely play all three for maximum enjoyment. That being said, ME3 can be a great game all by itself.

Also, you can pick up ME 1 & 2 for pretty cheap - especially if you don't mind used. Neither has an online pass (no online play except ME3) but I think both came with some pretty minor DLC that would probably not be included in a used copy.

If the trilogy comes with ALL DLC for all 3 games, that does make it much more appealing. Also, ME1 on the PS3 is an intriguing prospect that might be worth waiting for.

Since BioWare already confirmed that the :360: and PC versions of the trilogy won't have any DLC included, we can only hope the :ps3: version is treated differently since it'll be released later.

I am seeing Mass Effect 3: N7 Collectors Edition for PS3 listed at $29.99 on the site (but none available). Are they honoring this price in-store (assuming you can find one)?
