So BB currently has a couple promos for their guides and they can stack. 40% off all guides and if you preorder Watch_Dogs, you get $10 off the guide.

As you can see it brings it down to $10.99 total. Not bad at all! I already preordered the game from them. So I put in a second preorder. Will just cancel the first one when I pick it up in store on release.

Thanks, but you might want to edit the thread title to reflect that you need to preorder the game to get it down to $10.99, and that it's $20.99 otherwise.

Thanks, ordered the game (ps4) and the guide, total came out to $60ish after 20% GCU.

 

Game looks like ass though:

Thought about doing that. But I originally bought the game online with a gift card and don't have it anymore. Any idea how I'd get it back?

The 15% off doesn't stack with both deals

Thanks for the heads-up on this, Bleeding.  Saved me $5.

Game looks like ass though:

 

You judged the game based off beta gameplay, at 480p resolution, of a player that has no clue how to play the game?

 

The beta is stripped down.  There aren't even any enemy guards in the open world.

You could do what Eld suggested, they should fix it for you and send you a new gc in the mail. But personally I'd do what you planned to do initially (cancel it in-store). Saves you some time from having to call and wait for the gc to arrive.

Pre-Ordered a copy for the guide.
I will return the game and wait for a price drop. It's an Ubisoft game, no way am I buying it at launch.

I actually wasn't even going to get the guide.
I feel like we've been hearing about this game for so damn long, I'm sick and tired of it already. But I wasn't passing on an $11 CE game guide.

Your spot on about not passing on a cheap guide. I remember getting the Dark Souls guide for $11 that sold for a decent amount. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think it will let you keep the price $10.99, if you return the game though.

It would be like trying to return a game from a buy2get1free promo. On the receipt it will most likely lower the price of the game and keep the guide the same price.

I actually preordered when they had some kind of discount before on guides, but this saved me another $4. Thanks OP!

Great deal! Thanks! It's nice getting the game and a collector's edition guide for less than the retail price of the game!

well I think this seals the deal on a BB preorder for me now and I'll cancel my Amazon one.

The beta is stripped down.  There aren't even any enemy guards in the open world.

 

Even so, the gameplay/movement looks janky. It looks like the repetitive missions of asscreed with the boring shooting/combat of gta. For one of the most hyped games of nextgen, this looks tedious. I'm getting in on this deal but my cyberpunk hopes have been deflated. And eww 30 fps even on ps4 sucks. I loved Infamous at 40-45fps most of the game. It was really smooth and I never used the 30 fps option.

is there a reason that dark souls guide is so expensive? Your post just reminded me I have like 3 unopened copies still I got for $5 at GameStop about two years ago lol

I wonder if this would stack with the welcome coupon for GCU that gives half off a strategy guide.

no it wouldn't. cause the half off strategy guide GCU Welcome coupon can be used IN-STORE only not online. And the strategy guide isn't in store yet and listed as preorder.

Didn't even notice that. Thanks for pointing that out oregon.
Hodgson is the best in the business. His guides are outstanding. Really glad Best Buy came out with this deal now.

Pretty sure after the patches for Dark Souls, all the stats in the guide are all wrong. Of coarse I never played Dark Souls personally, so that's just from what I heard online.

Does this guide come with a time machine back to where paper guides were needed and everything wasn't online and/or where collectible guides were worth something?

Ugh someone always has to chime in that the internet makes printed guides obsolete.  People like them, the end. 

 

This is a good deal but not the type of game I like to get printed guides for.

Buying a guide is similar to getting a limited/collector's edition of a game.  Ultimately, the value is certainly questionable, but it's fun to own and fun to look at.  Personally, I like looking at guides simply for things like artwork and other general information that I might not have looked up on the internet.  If I need specific help, i'll often actually look it up on the internet even if I have a guide simply because it might be easier to find or have multiple valid answers.  I view guides as something closer to art books than actual practical reference material.

 

All that being said, I've actually started avoiding guides simply due to space and cost issues.  This deal is tempting, but not enough for me to go through the hassle of canceling my existing order, etc.

Thanks for the info submitter!

 

I enjoy getting the collector's guides, and $11 on release day made it easy.   Just cancelled my old PO and reorderd.

Thanks for this!

 

I was already preordering from them, with $10 credit and Gamer's Unlocked it seemed like the best place to do so, and this only made it better since I had a $5 rewards credit, so for $6, why not?

 

Canceled and replaced order, thanks!
