Preorders are actually picked an hour before open the day before release but they don't push the emails out until an hour after closing so people don't show up early after not reading it clearly. ;)

You probably know better than I do, but many times I don't get the email until the morning of an hour or so before open.  I've gotten them the night before a well, so I dunno.  Just was saying it was not a reason to worry as I have gotten them on the day of pickup prior to open before.

I thought someone mentioned that Best Buy is considered an essential store because they have stuff that helps you get connected to the internet and have products that help you work from home.

Yeah they are considered "essential," similar to grocery stores (at least that is what I was told).  In addition, the manager stated all CA stores will be closed to the public starting next week until further notice.  Store/Curbside pickup will be the only option, where employees will hand items to customers at the front entrance.

What does hard difficulty do differently? Does it make the experience more realistic, or does it do things like make human enemies into bullet sponges?

TLOU is unfortunately one of the “must-play” games that I haven’t quite gotten around to playing yet...


Yes it makes it harder and more realistic. They don’t play around. You can actually get killed, they don’t miss if you’re out in the open. Also they take away your “hearing” mode or whatever it’s called which shows u the enemies around you

Interesting. I’m guessing that the “hearing mode” you speak of is like detective vision in the Batman Arkham games or instinct mode in the new Hitman games?

Also, would you recommend hard mode for a new player? Or would a new player be missing out on part of the game by not having access to that hearing mode?

I beat it on normal at first I guess. I guess play that or Hard. Clickers could be annoying on hard but it’s up to u if your up for the challenge and/or if you wanna earn trophies and platinum the game. Also that probably means low supply too so you have to save whatever ammo u get for situations where u really need em just like resident evil. I recommend normal unless u want a challenge and story mode longevity

Everybody that pre-ordered any edition should get one. I still don't have my code though. Pre-ordered the deluxe edition a few weeks ago and picked it up on Thursday.

according to my sister her Best Buy in NJ will be closing. I can't believe im saying this but should the game be delayed i'd much rather wait for its arrival than cough up the $$ for a digital copy

Anyone else preorder Animal Crossing digital and not get the $10 yet? I know you usually have to wait, but some people said that they got their $10 for the physical copy already. Also, my digital prouder did this weird thing and jumped the release date back to February 2020 for some reason, so now my order details shows a Feb. 2020 date as when I got the product.

Seems like Best Buy is doing the right thing by their employees by making work voluntary, giving temporary pay raises to those that do choose to work and paying people who are home sick. Everybody that has to leave their home to work should be making time-and-a-half until this is over.

There's a thread in the Best Buy Gaming Support forums to send a DM to a Best Buy moderator that will message you the missing DLC code.  It's worked in the past for me when something did not work out exactly right on their end.  Since I preordered prior to the Doom 64 DLC being offered, I think that might have something to do with the whole issue.

 

FYI I received my copy of Doom Eternal on Friday & I already have the 500 points in my Best Buy Rewards account (Elite Plus) just in case you haven't checked for it.

I messaged them a few hours. We'll sees what happens. I got the $10 rewards and the game came Friday. Just waiting on codes.

Does anyone know if the Switch version of Doom Eternal still qualifies for the $10 reward certificate?
