Why won't Skylanders Giants work with this?
It looks like the game without the portal is 59.99, it's just the one with the portal thats more expensive. If you already have your portal from the first game, you should be fine.

Or is there something I'm missing?

WOO I ended up winning 2

puzzler worlds 2012 3ds for 19.50 (one for 13.50 one for 6.00)

trade in is 5.00 will double to 10.50..... will be like paying 9.00 out of pocket for the game.... was thinking of tossing it up on ebay for 13 or 14 but after ebay fees it would be the same as best buy

now lets abuse the Fuck out of the 100 %

I DOUBT TRADE VAULES HOLD BUT IF THEY DO

Pokemon white 2
Pokemon black 2
pokemon black/white 2

TOTAL 70 bucks

Trade in 15 each doubles to 30 = 60 + 10% = 63 bucks

End up with a pokemon for 7 bucks .... So freaking tempted

first in line sunday to see :)
WOOOO I STINK

Not sure, how big are the giants? If you are playing 2-player, would 2 giants, or 2 giants and an accessory fit all at once on the original portal?

Already traded in my copy of Dishonored. Starting to miss it now. With BL2, UC3, and then BO2/AC3 coming out I'm not sure if I'd be able to give it another run through.

I went to look at the ad again and saw this disclaimer regarding the B2G1:

I think it drops to $20 base so $42 after GCU.

Well that sucks.
Thanks for letting me know. I was already planning on Skylanders/Medal of Honor and then some other game to trade back, but I guess I'll have to reconfigure my plan of attack.

Well now I need to decide if I should keep my backordered 360 Holiday bundle at TRU for $216 or cancel it for a $242 bundle at BBY on Sunday. I have no idea when TRU will be shipping this thing plus I like my 60 day PM at BBY.

Would I get by with doing an exchange the week after? Cause I'd probably get something, make sure it doesn't ring up free, then return it for WWE '13 on the 30th.

Dishonored is terrible, don't support that lazy game.


I don't think Dishonored is terrible, but I don't agree with the 9.5/10 reviews. The developers said if you beat it in 6 hours then you're playing it wrong. I don't believe there's a wrong way to play a game, but I took their advice and didn't rush through missions, explored, did the side quests. Still beat it in a day rental. It was a fun game and I'd buy it, but not for $60.

I'll probably do 2 transactions for $60 and $40 games

$60 - Xcom, Borderlands 2, Forza Horizon

$40 - Silent Hill BoM, Doom 3 BFG, ???? If I buy some random game for $40 can I return it the next day for Professor Layton?

Hmmm, this is a question for all the Best Buy veterans out there (aka Enuf).

I have purchased via the $20 pre-order bonus: Borderlands 2, Resident Evil 6, and Dishonored. I would love to price match the B2G1 with those three games, essentially paying $40 per game and getting a $20 RZ cert per game (so $20 per game).

The issue I am encountering with this is the logistics. If I do a return/rebuy I would lose my 1000 points, no? If I tell the store flat out "I don't want to do return/rebuy because of the pre-order bonus" they may flat out deny the price match. Does anyone have some advice for me in regards to this?

didnt you recieve your credit for those games already? Id just use them to rebuy the games and then return with the old reciept. You should be within the 30 days for RE6 and Dishonored but may be out of luck if you bought Borderlands 2 on day 1.

I was told the max base value they can have during the 100% promo is $20. So $42 after GCU is the best you can hope for on any game.

^ Same question, but would the reward zone coupons work aswell?

If so I would like to get Black 2, Tekken Tag 2 (For $40 with the coupon), and Doom BFGE or something else.

As of now the only $20 that cleared is BL2, RE6 and Dishonored is still pending. I am oremiere silver so I have 60 days to PM.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Dishonored is terrible, don't support that lazy game.

My opinion on Dishonored so far:

I'm only a couple missions in since I'm taking my sweet ass time with it, but I love games like this where you can pretty much play how you want.

I'd think though that if you just want to run and gun through it you probably wouldn't get much out of it. If you want to play it that way then rent it and be done with it.

Play stealthy, take your time and explore everything though and it's very well done and worth every penny. Easily one of my favorite games of the year so far just for the game play and setting.

Anyway we can get medal of honor as part of the b2g1 and the $20 RZ?


I did it with NCAA 13, so you should be able to.

Hoping to get Super Monkey Ball Vita, Smart As..., and Street Fighter X Tekken (if BB updates it to the right release date). Maybe replace one of them with the Killzone Trilogy.
