Picked up Deus Ex and Alice Madness Returns for $7.50 each. They had quit a decent selection for cheap. I only went to 1 location, might check my other location out another time. I want Portal 2...

I asked about Portal 2 at the BB I went to because it was listed in the OP. The clerk showed me the computer screen and it was $29.XX, so it does not qualify for 50% off. Has anyone seen it for less than $20? Perhaps the computers needed to be updated at this store.

My store has the 50% off bin but they don't ring as 50% off ... the manager told me it's buy one, get one 50% off .. and that's the only barcode he had available to scan on the scan sheet.

The manager/cashier did it manually on mine. She asked me if I got them from the bin...which makes me believe I could of grabbed any used game and lied lol

Mine was manual as well. Got Final Fantasy 13-2 for 9.00, gears of war 3 for 10.00, mass effect 3 for 7.50 with a hopefully unused online pass and tatsunuko vs capcom for 5.00.

My store had ME3 and MW3 but were 29.99 or 34.99 on the sticker, were they just mispriced I wonder?

Grabbed shadows of the damned for ~$8.

My blockbuster has this too.

Eureka CA, titles included:
Batman Arkham City
Skyrim
Tekken X Street Fighter
Just Dance 4
The Gunstringer
Max Payne 3

All games were 50% off, but not all were under $20, even with the 50%
-The games, they are all remakes. :cry:

They already went belly up. They're just a part of Dish Network now. I personally don't care if they close up all the store or not, if I can still get a decent video game deal from time to time, I say keep 'em open. But they can't be making money at this point.

how i understand it its no longer a part of the dish network ... dish sold it off cause the blockbuster stock i own just went under a new name (called up my broker and they said Dish no longer owns it)

our last BB here closed up 2 months back (hell they even took all of the machines away)
WOOOO I STINK

As of a few weeks ago the two were still tied together though to what extent I do not know. I had a issue with them shall we say that resulted in me calling the corporate HQ which resulted in Dish network picking up the phone and forwarding me to Block Buster.

Got Final Fantasy XIII-2 for $8.99, and it's in virtually new condition which shocked me.

Good selection of PS3/Wii games at the Buffalo Galleria store, for anyone around there. A guy in front of me had at least 10 games, should have asked if he posted here. ;)

Went to the S. Post Oak Location in Houston, 77096. There was a big bucket of games that said 50% off. Games included FFXIII-2, Sesame Street:OUM, Dust, Mass Effect 3 ($10), Quantum of Solace, Captain America and more.

Didn't pick anything up but I was sure someone would find something they wanted.

Dust?

Side note, I returned the $2.50 game I bought due to it not working...and they gave me back the $5. I showed them the receipt and everything, very odd.

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.

Probably. They had one last copy of ME3 (360) for $7.50 after the 50% ($14.99 stickered) and I picked up Deus Ex too.

You should exploit their ineptitude. Earn $2.50 until they caught on.

Heads up guys. :360: me3 trades for $22 so you can buy it for $7.50 and trade it back in for $22. Even better deal than the cranium Bukkake deal for those of you that have been around a while
