Wasn't there a @Gamer coupon for Darksiders II? Maybe can apply to it for more savings?

^No.

Anyone have any thoughts on the DLC? Good or bad?


Don't know anything about the DLC besides that they didn't include trophies/achievements, which is kinda lame.

My nearest BB is 30 min. away; wanted the LE and was able to PM at my local Wal-Mart with no problem. However, the discount is such that a manager is required to override, so the whole process took a bit of time. (Of course, buying any game at WM usually takes a bit of time, regardless!)

Was going to grab it last week with my $20 in RZ certs but decided to grab a $20 PSN card instead. Not headed near my Best Buy today but will probably swing by it after work tomorrow to grab a copy. $15 ain't too shabby.

There are maybe 10+ new copies at the Union City Bestbuy but none are LE. But there are 2 used copies that are LE. Damn

That's... rather odd. I mean it wouldn't stop me for buying them if they're good, but I don't recall a game that had trophies that didn't have any for a single-player add-on.

I'm pretty sure it does, every time I've used in-store pickup I've had to show the credit card used for the purchase.

I obviously have not played them but I've heard they aren't very good. Some of them are just weapons/armor, but I've heard the actual story DLCs are short, boring, and glitchy.

Those of you that are getting the LE's do you just take it up front and it rings up as 14.99 or is there some hassle? I ordered online but the BB near me had a ton of LE's left last time I was there a few weeks ago. I'd be willing to cancel my online order if I have a chance at snagging the LE at this price but something tells me it won't be so easy. Here is so cal nothing is ever that easy when it comes to VG purchasing.

The launch Limited Edition with the same UPC/SKU as vanilla copies, yes. For the BB exclusive Limited Edition with the lenticular slipcover, no. That one has a different UPC/SKU and will ring up at $50.


i am confused by what you said, the only limited edition i found at my bestbuy was the one with angel of death dlc on the outside cover

The barcode on the LE is the same as the vanilla and will therefore ring up at the sale price.

So what does the LE look like (not the BB exclusive). Going to go back and see if I can get the LE. I think the BB exclusive has a sticker on it that says BB exclusive, correct?

Whoa never seen that. You must return a ton of shit.


with sales going on i have been very compulsive and never worried about it since as long as it was new sealed, never got a warning about "excessive returns".

i was able to maintain a silver so i have bought atleast $2000 in the last year, perhaps $3500 but with a $1000 return average - probably a 30% return rate on items...

apparently their 3rd party data people did not like that.

I ran into this confusion while picking up a copy. The LE versions that the BestBuy closest to my work had were the BB Exclusive LE versions. They sent me to a BB a few miles down the road in Allen Park, MI. They had vanilla and non-BB Limited Ed. versions. Both $14.99.

The non-BestBuy Exclusive LE version is printed on metallic paper.

Thanks, what I've read all seems to say the same thing. Tons of glitches and can be completed in like 45 minutes, with weak story. May just play the main game and be done with it.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 comes to mind.

Could someone post the SKU for the non-BB Limited Edition?

(What's the difference between the two LEs? I'm getting the impression the non-BB is the better?)

I believe this is how it goes

Vanilla/no "limited edition" printed in the cover - Its part of a second batch of Darksiders 2 -NO DLC ($15)

Limited Edition/Not Exclusive - It has "limited edition" printed in the cover - Argul's Tomb DLC($15)

Limited Edition/BB Exclusive - It comes with a paper slip cover - Comes with Argul's Tomb and Angel of Death DLC ($50)

30% is pretty high imo. Is the return ban permanent?

i read/saw it somewhere on the bby forum, it varies depending on individual case. It goes from 30-90 days, or beyond

Well I was going to pass on this one but I changed my mind and ordered for pickup. Another game in backlog. Is it worth it to find a darksiders 1?

Why would anyone buy a bunch of stuff and return 30% or more of it? That seems really crazy, I can understand why they have to limit someone from doing that.
