Saw this earlier today and jumped on it! Already played through the PS4 version and now I will happily play the PS Vita version too with alternate decisions from the ones I originally chose. The additional plat is a nice perk too!

 

Awesome game. I enjoyed it as much as Telltale's TWD S1 and S2, if not, more.

As for all of the comments about which thread deals like this should be posted in, I usually just check the front page. So, I greatly appreciate when deals like this show up there instead of inside of being buried in the "appropriate" thread. I used to check out the iOS deals thread and others regularly, but as soon as I go a day or two without checking it I almost dread having to comb through the last few pages trying to catch up. Finally I just decided that if it's a really good deal it'll hopefully show up on the main page and I stopped combing through threads unless I happen to have time to kill.

Same here.

I'll normally check a few of the mega threads.. but most of them are a complete CF if you do not stay on top of them.

Didn't think it warranted it's own thread, but if you have a Nebraska Furniture Mart nearby they have this for $5.

I would so get this.. but I keep reading how bad the QTE parts make it really hard to finish on the Vita version. I will wait till I can get it on PS4 for this price or less.

Get it for vita. Touchscreen to explore and move is much more pleasant than moving a cursor around. You can switch to face buttons for QTE's, so it's not like they'll be any more or less annoying than on PS4.

I have this on my PS3 backlog, wouldn't mind it for the Vita just for the portability.  I heard the Vita versions of Walking Dead Season 1 and 2 had more hiccups/glitches than the console version.  Is this the same case with the Wolf Among Us on Vita?

I played the Walking Dead Season 1 on Vita, and it actually seemed smoother than the already glitchy/slow PS3 version.  So if anything, it may be an improvement.

I disagree with it being an "improvement" by any stretch. Perhaps you played it off disc? (I believe both the 360 and PS3 were messed up when playing these games off disc). The download versions for PS3 were fine, and I think the Vita version was indeed bit choppier - certainly enough to notice if you played them both back to back. 

 

That being said, any issues the Vita version had were relatively minor to me. It held it's own quite well. The touch/swipe controls are also a cool alternative to standard control pad controls - although I recall a few sections that didn't respond well for whatever reason, but it's not like the dualshock controls were perfect either.

Finally. I like rewarding Best Buy for originating deals, but that $35 minimum is a killer when I'm a prime member and didn't really want anything else.

I guess you could always just not care?  But the CAG community does always enjoy descending into exactly the kind of "circle-jerk" we find ourselves in now.  Big Poppa Pump posted a deal and we now have over half the thread talking about "ethics in deal-posting."  I refuse to argue about this anymore.  Instead, I'll let a couple of genetic freaks do the talking for me.


That fat dude is a genetic freak? :p

i had the one digitally on ps3 and i thought the vita one was better... i also have the digital version on my vita didnt try physical copy yet.

Good Lord; this game is CHOPPY AS Fuck. I can barely play it. Forget about the damn QTE's.

I just got killed with an axe in the first five minutes because the choppy ass game didn't register my QTE input.

Ya, unfortunately, that tends to happen with the Telltale engine (Jurassic Park on ps3 was a huge mess in spots with similar problems...like dying 10 times in a row because a QTE was too choppy to play).  The ps3 version of The Wolf Among Us was actually pretty smooth, but things were occasionally skippy (like the intro video with the theme song, oddly enough).

So this was interesting. First off the BB website said it wasn't available for store pick up ( it had three) and then the cashier denied my GCU discount because the game was cheap enough already. Anyone else run into this?

Wow... I hate reading stuff like this lol. I never ran into it but you should def go back and complain about it and get it applied, anyways i thought it automatically applies when you purchase? I dont buy instore just online so i wouldn't know.

That's insane.  It comes off automatically.  Wouldn't a cashier actually have to get an override to remove the discount?  The only way they can really deny your discount is if you're trying to stack (like if you do a PM, you don't get the discount).  But if you were just buying one copy of the game, nobody should have been able to deny you your discount much less a cashier.

Handed her the card, she scanned it, few button presses, nada. Only got it a few months ago too and only one copy for the Vita backlog. Back to customer service....

Betting the cashier had to PM the price to $9.99 for some stupid reason.

GCU should automatically come off without them doing anything, at least thats how it works for me when I use it in store. Scan my card and discounted price comes up.

 

I'd go back and complain. $2 is $2. 

A while back when BB screwed up the newspaper ad for Dying Light, they couldn't figure out how to "correct" the price and get me the $8 off. (long story, I used a $20 rewards code so it got all screwed up) but instead of $8.. I got $10 due to them not being able to do simple math. 

 

But then again.. it's only $2. Is it worth the time/hassle? up to you.

Contact Best Buy Support on Twitter, tastefully and with tact. They are VERY helpful. Get Store # off your receipt and the cashier's name. Trust me.

Thanks for the replies. Well dwerp. Got it sorted out with customer service, apparently this store has issues with gamers club if you don't scan the card before the transaction. The checker just fumbled through without caring to really check what was wrong.
