For those that missed Dead Island: RT on sale, the link below shows the price still as $34.99. Maybe in store and online customer service will honor the price.?

I think you can beat the game by running through it without firing your gun once, if that tells you anything.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

Looks like I'll be price matching Definace and getting 20 bucks back. Not bad, not bad.... Thanks OP.

... so you paid $70 somehow? It's only $10 off.

Hmm, is it worth getting the Skylanders Giants starter pack for $25? I have $20 cert and $10 off coupon from McD's for the starter pack, which is probably the cheapest I'll get it for.

For anyone looking for copies of UFC Undisputed 3 in-store, remember to check the Platinum Hits / Greatest Hits sections in addition to where it would be among the other games--I found the remaining :ps3: copy at my store among the Greatest Hits games, likely placed there because it had the red box denoting GH status.

$50 (pre-coupons) is the cheapest the Giants Starter Pack has been so far. The cheapest I ever saw the original Spyro's Adventure SL was $40 (not counting the Kmart price error). So this week's price for Giants is pretty decent.

Do they give that $10 off coupon away at McDonald's? I've had 2 Skylanders Happy Meals and neither had the coupon. I see HappyMeal.com has a printable version of the coupon, but Toys R Us seems to hate taking any printed coupons legit or not, claiming they are all fakes.

no, its really bad. Maybe get it when its around $10 or so if your a big alien fan. Im actually forgiving with mediocre shooters, but this one is truly sub par

Looks like amazon raised the price back on dead island riptide recently, because I used them to price match earlier today to get the special edition for 34.99

Nice catch. Thanks for correcting me. 10 bucks is still not bad.

That's weird that it wasn't included. I bought 2 Skylanders toys seperately and they both came with the coupon. I guess since I don't expect this to drop any lower than what it is, $25 seems like a good deal. Guess I'm buying it on the weekend.

GOWA seems like a good deal with the @Gamer coupon to bring it down to 35.

I had fun with it but I'd recommend using the cert for something else. Buy ACM when it's like 20 overall not 20 or less out of pocket. The game wasn't what I'd call atrocious or unplayable but it was dull and tiresome to play alone. MP felt like a crappier Left 4 Dead. Some parts in the game had textures that looked like they were out of a N64 game (no joke) but the game wasn't unplayable or anything. Deserving of like... a 4/10 or something. You could beat it and enjoy it but it's definitely not great and has a lot of issues. It would raise to like a 6 or 7 with a coop experience as playing with friends would make it much more enjoyable. The AI in campaign is a joke to say the least.

UFC Undisputed 3 - $7.99

PS3: http://www.bestbuy.c...t=ufc&lp=3&cp=1

Xbox: http://www.bestbuy.c...t=ufc&lp=1&cp=1


Fuck Best Buy. When this was $8 it wasn't available for shipping and all the STL stores are long sold out. Now that's it's back to MSRP it magically reappears in their warehouse.

Picked up the used Uncharted for a friend - $4.99 is kind of a no-brainer, since he hasn't played it. Ended up grabbing MW3 for me; I only want the single player, so $9.99 a fair price.

how do i get my money back on a pre order i did at BBY? Their system is terible. I dont remember where i put the reciept for my old dead island riptide preorder. I dont really want the game anymore but want to get my $5 back. I hope they dont have to look through all my orders because that will take FOREVER

I never even got a call or anything either. BBY's pre order system is pretty damn janky.

Can't they pull it up at customer service using your phone number/RZ info? I remember cancelling a pre-order like that before, unless they changed the system recently

Yeah, but they always try to make wisecracks about how you've got so many orders even when you've got like five.

That's getting really rare, so I'd get it. You can always return it or sell it to an interested CAG if you decide not to keep it.

Find your pre-order under your rz purchase history. If it was awhile ago they will probably take forever to find it for you. Knowing the date might help narrow it down.
