Newegg typically sends games in padded envelopes. I've yet to receive a single damaged game from them but I'm sure if you ask enough people you'll eventually hear a horror story or two. It shouldn't be too difficult to get a replacement sent right out to you should something actually happen during shipping.


I think in the 30-50 orders I've put in I've had maybe one cracked case

Not sure why I'm asking, BUT. Demon Souls vs Dark Souls. I know both of them have great reviews, but which one would you guys recommend to someone who has never played either?

Also, let me say this. My biggest concern is that I don't know if I will like the game or not. I DO NOT like games like Oblivion, Skyrim, Darksiders, etc etc. I have Dragons Dogma and The Witcher 2 and I have only played each one about a hour or so. I haven't touched either one in a few weeks now. You guys see where I'm going with this?


I would venture to guess that you would not enjoy this

Demon's/Dark Souls involves a lot of dying and repetition, that's the main mechanic of the game, also it's not a "true" RPG as it's more gameplay action based and the "story" is pretty sparse. Every time an enemy kills you, you start at the beginning of the level and all enemies reset. Then you go kill them to pick up the souls (currency for everything) you dropped when you died. You'll learn where enemies/traps are to try to be ready for them the next time.

It sounds more frustrating than it is, but it can be quite addictive, and you learn ways of minimizing loss (spend as soon as you can), so if that doesn't sound like fun to you then skip both.

As amazon typically matched Newegg video game sales like this?

Your reply is totally irrelevant to the question on hand. Besides, it was answered by people that actually have common sense.

Just a little joke. IATCG said he needed somebody to sub for him being an asshole since he was afraid of the ol' banhammer.

Tempted on Silent Hill - hopefully it stays this price at NewEgg in case a BF deal on it doesn't come along.

Most of the titles listed in the OP aren't on sale, they're just Newegg's regular prices.
