Did anybody else order the att lumia 635 and show a crazy $9 tax on it?  MSStore didn't charge that much.

I PMd to WM and I was really surprised at how nice a phone it is.

So is Disney infinity 2.0 really worth it? Or are you people that are buying it are getting it for your kids or something.

 

I think the summation that I read when the games came out was pretty good: DI are toys that have a game to go with them, Skylanders is a game that has toys to go with it.  Both are fun as an adult though obviously aimed at kids.  DI is more slanted towards the creation and sandbox stuff and Skylanders is really focused on the adventure.

No I got charged the normal tax rate here.

Woke up magically last night and rolled over to check the sale. Ordered the following from my phone:

 

Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse XB1

Wizard of Oz BluRay

Shadows of Mordor PS4

Tomb Raider Definitive PS4

White DS4 Controllers x2

Logitech G502 Mouse + $50 steam card.

 

All but the mouse have already shipped, and one of the controllers and Mordor are waiting for me at the SF Best Buy for pickup.

 

Was tempted to buy more but I have such a massive backlog already. Almost bought a Lego Movie for $3.99 but then I remembered I already bought it for $20 when it came out. :(

Well I'm not entirely sure why you're buying a WiiU if you don't plan to pick up Smash and DK TF.  If you're going to pass on MK8 too then I really have no idea what you're buying it for.

 

Don't get me wrong, I almost considered getting the bundle as an extra console since I was going to buy smash anyway, but it ends up only being about $40 savings from buying everything separately this year, which seems like nintendo didn't try hard.  I already have mario 3d, dk, mk8, nintendoland... so that just made it even less of a deal personally to me.  For someone who doesn't have any of it yet, it is probably the best option right now, but not by much.

Would the $360 Wii U bundle possibly get the GCU discount in store on BF?

garbage.  Nothing is as good as mario 64. I hate the timed mario games. They're a little cheap and rushed together.

I prefer Banjo Kazooie.

The usually charge you tax for the full price, if you bought it on contract even though you bought at a lower price.

What's the verdict on Fantasia?

Also debating on picking up TRDE. I'm going to trade Sunset OD while the TIV is still high and get that $45 1TB HDD, mine is at 87% full and I've had to uninstall a lot of stuff.

For those interested, Venom is back in stock for shipping. Also all the DI figures I changed to in-store have changed from "Status Not Available" to "Ready to be picked up"

I just went over my orders for today, and I've already spent $746.72 at Best Buy... Damn.

So I was watching ESPN a while ago, when suddenly, an odd commercial came on. I'm sure you're all intrigued, and are asking, "what was it for?" Well, CAGs, it was for SLICKDEALS! A freaking SlickDeals commercial during SportsCenter?!

Guys, we've saved a lot of money this year. Certainly, we could get CAG onto ESPN, if we pool our money together...we can't let SlickDeals win.

if u did not know yet. U should know now that slickdea is actually a multimillion corporation. After the PS4 walmart incident, did a little research on sd, and was surprised by it , their hq is somewhere in California

Thay are not putting up all the advertized BF sales either. Borderlands Pre-sequel is missing

 

Actually, Borderlands was listed when the sale initially went up.

Zoo Tycoon is a very fun game, especially if you are playing with friends.

Spoiler regarding Zoo limitations

Spoiler

Has it been confirmed that Zoo Tycoon will be part of this early access sale?

 

Also, I'm really disappointed that there are no Vita games on sale. Would have gotten Lego Movie. Am I the only damn person who cares about the Vita?

 

Sigh.

Are you looking at the Apocalypse Edition? That one's in the BF ad, but it's sold out online.


The one in the ad is the non-apocalypse and it is showing as 49.99 on BB. I'm elite plus and signed in. Why is that one not on sale?

You're all insane. Super Mario World is the definitive Mario Brothers experience. Super Mario 3 is a close second. Everything else drops down a bit from there. 64, then Galaxy 1/2, Super Mario Bros. 1, 3D World, and everything else takes another dip down from there.

 

If by definitive you mean uninspired rehashes. Any 3D mario easily trumps any of its 2D sidescrolling step siblings.

Seems confirmed that Zoo Tycoon won't be.  Means I have to do this all over again.

 

Also the Vita is all but dead at retail and basically a digital only machine these days so it's sad but not surprising.  Hopefully Sony comes through with a monster PSN sale.

 

The demo was fun but not worth $30 to me.

 

Which is why I locked in the trade at Amazon for $30.

The same thing happened to me. I stayed up till 2:15 then said screw it I need some sleep. Woke up at 4:10 and it was go time. Everything I ordered has shipped.

You don't want to know how many I ordered...

I am debating right now whether or not I should place another order for three of my games that were changed to in-store pickup but still say "Status Not Available". Worse case scenario I can always return the extra orders, I don't mind wasting another of my GCU limits for these three games since I doubt I'll ever buy more.... Decisions decisions....

well that's a crock of shit, thanks for the heads up.  It shows its available for purchase so why not have the BF price.  Well hopefully I can grab one on Turkey day.
