So I bought the Gran Turismo bundle from Walmart for $179 awhile back but now I need a good deal on the move remotes, can anybody recommend somewhere to buy these used besides eBay and Gamestop?

 

 

Edit; found one on craigslist for $10

Thanks for the heads up. I checked Gamestop, and they have it for $19.99 as well. Pre-owned is lower than that price. If a store has one in stock.

Yeah, if Amazon has a game price drop on Wednesday morning there is a good chance they are matching Gamestop (who does their own price drops and sales starting on Wednesday).

Saw on slickdeals earlier that the Farpoint/aim controller bundle is on sale for $64 after code MBLB011618. I know this is the same price as Best Buy with gcu and I also realize that the standalone game has been as low as like $20, but I found this to be a good deal. No tax for me from Newegg saved me about $5 in tax vs BB and shipping was finally free for once. I haven’t seen the aim controller cheap anywhere and this is the cheapest I’ve seen the bundle since I started looking (which was after Christmas)

Now that I’ve shared a deal, let me share a story. I’m glad Newegg wanted to charge shipping on VR Worlds that they had on sale because it made me not buy it. Made arrangements to buy resident evil 7 from a guy on Facebook for $15. I asked him if he had any other vr games and he said he’d give me the demos if I wanted, which I said yes to. I was very pleased when I met him and he handed me RE7, demo disc 1, and a copy of VR Worlds.

Damn, I paid $15 for VR Worlds alone. Lucky find.

I picked up Doom at Gamestop. Man, Gamestop has been having some good sales lately. I almost never shop there because of their prices, but I bought Doom VFR, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Deluxe, Mafia III, and Nier: Automata from them because they had the lowest prices. And amazingly, all were sealed copies.

I'm using the Move controllers. It seems like they'll take a lot of getting used to, but might end up working pretty well. There isn't a 90 degree turn button, but towards the end of my session I think I was starting to do something with the 180 degree turn button and my own head turning to work that out.

And I'll have to check if we can change the dash buttons. I'd rather have dash left and right be better aligned on the controller instead of dashing forward and back.

I'm playing standing up for better immersion. I'm glad the UI shows the location of the PS4 camera.

I always thought I would hate teleport movement, and after playing with it a bit in the Croft Manor mission in Rise of the Tomb Raider I felt that was confirmed. But I'm pretty okay with it in Doom. Going into it I told myself just think of it as going between hot spots like in Mortal Blitz, but hot spots are everywhere. What also helps is the presence of dashing, and it's how you do glory kills. Instead of feeling like a limited way to move in VR it feels like a special move.

I'm playing on Normal. At first I tried on Hard, but I don't think I would be able to handle it while also getting used to the Move controls. If the controls click I'll play it again on Hard with the Moves. If not then I'll play Hard with a dualshock. I've only completed the first level.

GS has indeed stepped their game up this past year. After typically being more expensive than everyone else the past few years, I noticed alot more sales and deals in 2017. I still don't like their business practices and the way they treat their employees, but lower prices are a fact you can't really argue with.

So I decided to try the Oasis Shooter VR bundle. First up was Ace Banana, which is an inferior bow-and-arrow shooting gallery game with crappy controls and shoddy tracking (compared to something like Ancient Amuletor). My hands were never lined up to the hands in the game and it kept pushing my movements left of screen, which made me have to overcompensate by turning my body left. Long story short, I ended up getting wound up in that stupid headset cable. I can make it to wave 10 (out of 16 total) consistently, but that multiplying Hanzo boss battle is incredibly unfair and I end up losing in seconds (someone keeps tossing palm fronds in my field of view). Needless to say, I got fed up and tossed it to the side without completing it.

 

Next up is Pixel Gear, which is a much simpler shooting gallery game. It only uses one Move controller and there are varying levels of difficulty. I found this superior in every way to Ace Banana, and overall enjoyable (but shallow), although my trigger hand is aching now. For a total price of $2.49, I guess I can't complain too much about the rudimentary design and short, repetitive gameplay. There's also a multiplayer mode in Pixel Gear which I can't seem to get to work (is it supposed to be local coop?).

You can now get Doom VFR on Newegg for $17.99 at checkout when entering the 40% off code: EMCXEEE57 (deal on the main CAG page).

 

Compare that to the $23.99 I paid for it on Newegg not more than one month ago. God damn it all to hell.

 

Front page listings don't last long, so you can also get Skyrim VR for $35.99 with that same code, or the Farpoint VR with Aim Controller bundle for $64.99 (for a limited time).

Don’t Knock Twice is now available to preorder at Best Buy, Gamestop and Amazon for $39.99. I’ll defintely be waiting for a price drop.

That’s way too expensive for that. I got it for $9.99 during the PSN sale and I don’t even think it’s worth that. I beat it the first time in 1-2 hours and the second time in about 30 minutes. It’s overall pretty creepy, but not as scary an experience as Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul (although they both suffer from short duration and poor controls). I wonder if the physical version will contain any unique content.

Same.  $20 tops for me.

Actually, if you buy through their mobile app and apply that code, you can get it for another 20% off, or $52.  I live in CA so they charged me tax. Total came out to $56 for me (minus another 5% cashback for using Chase Freedom + Android Pay)

I don't want to spend more than $20 on Don't Knock Twice either but I do worry about the "Job Simulator" and "Robinson" effect, in which certain VR games are randomly hard to find after a few weeks due to low print run or whatever other reason. Pulling the trigger on Job Simulator right when it released was easy because it was only $20 to begin with ($16 with Prime) but paying even $32 for Don't Knock Twice is something I really don't want to do. 

 

On a similar note, I've been watching the physical version of VR Karts like a hawk waiting for a price drop, but it's held at $29.99 on Amazon for quite a few weeks now. Ugh.

I've been curious about the Aim Controller with Farpoint, $52 might be cheap enough to get me to grab it.

 

How is the Aim controller with Doom VFR?  I have it arriving from Amazon tomorrow and just planned on playing with 2 Move controllers.  I'm also left handed and know there is no left handed mode in Doom (yet hopefully) so that makes me wonder how the Aim controller would also be.

Sorry, people over at SD are saying that the code is now expired.

I grabbed Skyrim with the code. I don’t think I’ll ever play the whole game in vr but I want to at least try it ha.

I noticed Amazon hasn’t had it in stock for some time, only 3rd parties.

I was reading on reddit that it’s supposed to be the superior option, except for a stupid little bug that still shows your other hand on screen (even though you’re gripping the Aim with both hands). You can also use the DS4 for more familiar handling (at the cost of immersion).

:ps4:VR  Doom VFR - $19.99 via Amazon

 

Will make it easier to price match at Target/Best Buy versus Gamestop (most of the time they do PM Gamestop aside from an occasional hiccup).

 

I'll be price matching to Target to save 5% with REDcard.

He could go to the Dollar Store and buy something. Now he paid $20 for Doom + <something> whereas other folks paid $20 for Doom.

He has an idea to save extra, good for him. And he's probably going to Target anyway since he has a Red card.

Does anyone know where I can find Battlefront for cheap so I can play the vr dlc? I guess I should have bought the ultimate edition on psn a few months ago when it was ~$5. I didn’t know I’d be getting a vr back then and I really have no interest in the main game since it’s all multiplayer

You probably already know this, but you don't need the Ultimate Edition to download the VR mission. Just the base edition is fine. I got it for $12 during Black Friday, so I can't help you there (but $5 for UE must have been a steal). If you're only going for the 15-minute DLC, your best bet might just be a used copy. Gross -- I know.

I don’t mind used games at all. I was hoping to find it pretty cheap though, especially since all I want it for is the vr experience. I was going to borrow it from a friend, but it turns out he owns it digitally.

Ok if we are playing “saver topper” then....I am going to buy it at Target, use a red card, but I am going to walk to target to save gas,collect aluminum cans I find on the way, wash windshields for tips at intersections I pass, sell plasma if I pass a blood bank, claim foreign citizenship so I can try to get a refund back on the tax portion, be sure I use the toilet at target so that will be one less flush at home, saving on my water bill, and probably even take some toilet paper and stick it in my pocket for later thus saving money on future toilet paper purchases, and then walk around outside of the store with a metal detector looking for any change that folks might have dropped. Then when my red card bill comes, I am going to file for bankruptcy and get the debt dismissed, so I get the game for free and actually plan on making money with all the activities I described above.

Amazing that someone wanting to save money bothers you so much.  You should get over yourself.  You're just making yourself look like even more of an ass.
