Overwatch (and officially now Doom) have been added to the Best Buy $10 pre-order certificate page today, along with Battleborn which has been on the list for awhile.  Previously, Doom had it listed in the item details but wasn't on the BB cert page.

Does the CE count toward the cert?

Hmm. I wonder if I have to cancel and re-pre order for it to apply or if it's automatically added. Anyone know?

It applies to existing pre-orders as well.

I'm hoping they will get a digital card, and the cert will apply to that. I need two copies and with digital I only have to buy one

THANK YOU. If thread titles don't get updated, then new posts are perfectly acceptable... Or rather, welcome.

Same with GameStop trade thread still showing Guaranteed $40 in trade. HOW LONG has it been since that has happened?

 

On topic, hopefully this is a sign pre-orders with certificates are coming back for more games. Would love me some Uncharted 4 with this.

Man, Q2 of 2016 is going to destroy my wallet. So many games I know I want and so many wait and sees/maybe's.
I'll start w the know:
Uncharted 4, Quantum Break, Dark Souls 3, Ratchet & Clank, No Mans Sky
And the wait and see:
Mafia 3, Doom, & Homefront
8 games!! I'm a CAG so some will have to wait until BF.

I think Mafia 3 is much more likely to be good than Uncharted 4 or Dark Souls 3, given the spotty track records of those series, but okay.

I won't be getting Mafia 3, didn't really like 2 all that much and don't expect to want the third game though hopefully they learned 1000 miles isn't a good idea for a trophy.

I liked 2 quite a bit, much as I did the first game. Not sure why so many people disliked it -- I think most were disappointed that "open world" does not mean "sandbox", since it was extremely narrative-driven. To me, those games have probably come the closest to having a legitimate film-worth story (as opposed to genre fare like Bioshock Infinite, although I liked that too) and that goes a long way.

 

It was also one of the first games to use physx and the cloth effects were rad.

 

Anyway, all of this is to say that 3 has an incredibly interesting premise. When you compare something like Mafia 3, in a setting and with a protagonist that isn't very well represented in video games, to Dark Souls 3 (more of the same, and so far Demon's and Dark 2 are the good ones -- Bloodborne is mediocre and Dark 1 is straight-up bad) or Uncharted 4 (where 2 was the only good one, even if 1 was graphically impressive at the time) I'm more inclined to buy Mafia 3.

sweet. Very Exciting news. Makes me that much happier I got the CE now. 

 

Also: Since I saw some discussion on it... I haven't been a fan of, really anything Blizz has done is a while. SCII was okay but I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected too. I just now picked up D3 at Best Buy so I have yet to try it, but I remember hearing most of my friends say it was kinda crap (at launch. Maybe it got better?). I quit WoW when they ruined it with Cata and haven't come back since. Heroes Of The Storm looks neat but I've stayed away since I've never been big into Moba's and I played Hearthstone for a while, but got bored with it pretty quickly. I think Overwatch is going to be great though. I played it at PAX East last year and it played incredibly well. I love fun FPS games like that. TF2 used to be my go to game, but eventually all of Valve's changes and updates kinda killed it for me (I'm looking at you engineer update). If Blizz can give us a quirky but solid FPS with various game modes, classes and levels and keep with the fun little story they're creating I think it'll become my new go to for sure. Honestly I'd rather play the game on PC but for launch I'm just gonna buy it on PS4 for the collectors junk and to play with my PS4 friends. Hopefully all my stuff will carry over to whenever I eventually buy Overwatch on sale for PC.

I enjoyed the heck out of both Mafia I and Mafia II. Both were great games with excellent narrative stories. I wish Mafia II had more things to do in its world, but the story-driven gameplay was awesome. 

Mafia 3, so far, has looked like sh*t to me. I hope they somehow WOW me.

 

Also, to the person who mentioned Mafia 3 will be better than Uncharted 4 and Dark Souls 3... Are you okay?

I still have around 20 games I need to play. I miss the days where I had nothing to play and eagerly waited for a new game to come out. I guess it's not a horrible problem to have, except the fact that I don't have nearly as much time to play these days.

Your outlook on Dark Souls is so garbage it's funny. Dark Souls 2 was the most mediocre Souls game because Miyazaki was directing Bloodborne at the time. Dark Souls 1 was perfect. Bloodborne blew the mediocrity that Dark Souls 2 was out the water. And Miyazaki is utilizing everything he's learned all the way back from Demon's Souls and Bloodborne into Dark Souls 3.

Dark Souls 3 is gonna be epic.
Uncharted 4 is gonna be epic.

I understand you're excited for Mafia 3, but idk why you have to bring down other games in order to justify your excitement.

Miyazaki is a hack who lucked into creating a great game with Demon's Souls. This is not something that I am inventing because of Mafia 3 -- Dark Souls was probably the most disappointed I've ever been by a video game. Dark 1 had terrible level design, poor balancing at launch (and was patched shortly after launch to be far too easy, as now you can just put on heavy armor and brute-force almost every boss while chugging Estus) and had gone too far in the direction of "obtuse = good".

 

DS2 was much better, likely because Miyazaki wasn't involved. Adding fast travel from the beginning vastly improves playability, using multiple souls at once was a great change, and the art direction was much better as well. It had its issues, specifically that there were too many multi-boss fights and the weapon durability changes, while good in theory, didn't really work due to technical problems.

 

Bloodborne has better action, but is also incredibly shallow. There's so little room for different builds, along with the limited equipment set, that it just feels like a stripped-down version of the Souls series. It was also pretty easy, and for some reason kept getting easier with every NG+ I played (for the platinum, because I'm insane). I guess it doesn't scale correctly or something, because in subsequent playthroughs I was just breezing through in about 2 hours, knowing where to go. The Chalice dungeons are the worst part: they're full of terrible design decisions, meant to make them look like they're randomized. But they're not, except for the Root ones. So they were just given tons of dead ends or ladders to nowhere or rooms that loop in on themselves in 3 spots because of the illusion of random generation. That's shitty.

 

I realize this is a waste of typing because the people who have Miyazaki's cock so far down their throat it's inside their stomach won't listen to reason and have no eye for proper design, but there, you have my thoughts. It's completely unrelated to Mafia 3. But man, I really really like Demon's Souls. No idea how he pulled that one off.
