XD.  Thanks for the memories of that game being on sale for $0.99 time and time again.

 

Actually, though, I believe the third day's deals are going to be 50% off "select" strategy guides and Mario Party Island Tour for $5 with the purchase of a 3DS XL (they've been offering that deal with the 2DS for the last month, but they seem to have run out of 2DSs).

People rarely buy guides anymore.

I like guides if they have nice art on/in them.

So today is select strategy guides. I am interested in buying guides, but EBs site is so poorly laid out that I can't even find a strategy guide category (except for the PS3 sub-category with 1 guide in it). Doing some specific searches for things I know exist, their selection is terrible.

 

If you're thinking of getting that Pokemon guide they picture, there's a hardcover version EB doesn't have:

http://www.amazon.ca...PPQNC40YYCJ61M0

 

I buy guides more as collectables, if I just wanted information Gamefaqs is probably better.

I think you meant Smash Bros., not Pokémon, but EB Games does have that Collector's Edition guide.  It's not on sale today, though.  Between the website and my local store, here's a list of guides I've found that are 50% off today (there may be more):

 

Assassin's Creed Rogue

Assassin's Creed Unity

Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes

Disney Infinity 2.0 Originals

Dragon Age Inquisition

Far Cry 4

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

The Sims 4

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U (paperback)

Tales of Xillia 2

 

With the exception of Smash Bros., any Collector's Editions of these guide are also 50% off.

Serebii is better for Pokemon than GameFAQs.  I don't even think Pokemon has a hardcover guide yet, and that link is for Smash Bros mang.

I bought the Pokemon guide for collection purposes a few weeks back, and now I see it's on sale for $11.50. Ugh.

Freudian typo, I meant Smash Bros :wall: At least I linked what I meant.

SSBU CE guide is legit. I bought it at launch, no regrets. Pros: it's beautiful; in-depth character strategies with actual SSB/FGC terminology; all unlock methods; covers pretty much everything there is in the game. Cons: not quite as in-depth with Events and Challenges; binding could be better. Great collector's item.

Oh, and speaking of video game books: The World of Witcher is only $23.75 today at Indigo Chapters, for pre-order. Good price for an artbook.

Does it show the future days deals on the site anywhere? Maybe I'm just blind but I can't see it.

I think Redboxes gave up on doing video games. i use to seem them in kiosk's but not anymore.  i dunno what videotron is or superclub . Microplay stopped existing here years ago. in other words. i can't rent games in my province anymore.  ontop of that.  i don't really wanna go through Game Access cause the prices they charge over all, really tho.

 

i pick a game and it get's to me about a weekish it sounds then i get it and if it's destroyed then i am charged for it if damaged tho it's not my fault.  i heard they are known for this. and slow shipments.    makes me miss BBV a great deal.

not bad deals for games this year like $10 CoD and this game. but. i'm just not interested in Castlevania LoS ( but not a bad price )  and CoD  tho  Shadow of Mordor $30  sweet spot is waited on $40 ? no. no thanks.

 

 

i think i'm going to not be getting anything for this 12 days of gaming like last year.  most likely boxing day is where i will get hooked on a sale.  ( hopefully )

Oh, Stick of Truth will be $10. But on Saturday. I'm working tomorrow, and even if I had the day off I wouldn't go into the mall on the last weekend before Christmas. So I guess I'll pass.

Could still be bought online.

 

If I didn't already own the game, I'd definiteyl grab it.  I paid full price on release day - no regrets.
