I want to get Steep but I'm thinking Ubi is going to put out a new version with the Winter Olympics dlc in December.

I want Prey as thats the price I wanted, but I'm always leery of buying from GameFly. I guess I will hold out for black Friday at this point. I loved Steep and if that's a game that interest you at all, it's totally worth $15 and trades for $10 base in the worst case.

Picked up Halo Wars 2 for $9 with my $5 credit. Doubt I'll ever play it but couldn't pass it up for that cheap.

As a single, middle aged man, I make the same decision whenever tampons go on a really good sale.

Can anybody give me a quick rundown on Akiba's Beat?

Dont need a synopsis or a summary of the story etc, just why is the game fun, what are some interesting bullet points about it.

Why or why not pick up a copy?

3D combat just like the Tales games (Xillia, Berseria, etc).  Pretty fun, but to me the story dragged on a bit too long and got kinda dumb at the end.

Sniper Ghost price tempting but reviews said otherwise

I wanted this one as well, but it seems to still be broken: freezes, very long load times (currently 3 min 10 sec, down from 5 min before patches), infrequent saves, broken bullet cam, save corruption, etc.

Thanks op, I grabbed Dishonored 2.  Wish I checked earlier, I would have loved to have grabbed a copy of Akiba's Beat.  Hopefully it pops back up in stock at some point during this sale.

Some dang good prices. So hard to pay cash when you are sitting on trade credit.

 

I would be down for Prey, Watch Dogs 2, Halo Wars 2, and Dishonored 2.  $68 + tax.

I agree, I wanted Prey, Last Guardian, Steep and Dishonored 2. But Watching my money so I'll just wait.

If Diablo style gameplay with a Viking setting sounds good to you, give it a try.  It obviously isn't as high budget as Diablo, and it shows.  It was really buggy when it first came out, but most of those bugs have been fixed.  I haven't ran into any, and I beat it once.  Plus they recently added some features requested, like couch coop.  I got it for 20 at GS during a sale, and I think it was worth the price :)

Just make sure to check/install the games within 30 days. I went to install 4 games in my backlog that wouldn't install and customer service told me I was SOL since it was past 30 days. I ended up with $50 worth of small plastic frisbees.

This makes no sense whatsoever. Why would a game be unplayable if you don't install it right away?

I'm pretty sure he means he bought 4 games from gamefly that weren't working, but took too long to check and they were out of the return period when he did.  So he was just letting everyone know to double check you have working discs in the first 30 days.

Kinda sucks you cant outright buy games that have the "keep" option available. If "keep" is available, so should "buy", without first having to rent the title.

Couldn't you just rent said game, keep the rented one and send back the broken one?

ON a side note if said game is a Xbox One game and the Xbox can recognize it as such, then you can actually use the disc to give you permission to download+install the game from online, then your bad-but-recognizable disk can just be used to boot it up.

I think I've bought maybe 50 PS3 and PS4 games off of game fly and I think every single one of them has been like new and works fine

I miss the days when all games were listed in the OP so you knew whether to stalk restocks

I have bought over 50 also and only have had problems since the last 10 or so. Bad luck maybe. All of my bad disks had scratches deep, not on the surface. I believe they buff them before shipping them, but these ones had scratches that didn't fully buff out, and you can see them with close attention.
I do like gamefly, hence why I just bought halo wars 2 and COD IW, I just want people to be aware of the 30 day return period. I'm sure many are like me and buy for their backlog.

I'm currently renting Crash for PS4 and I keep getting a disc error so that makes me a little wary to purchase used games. It also has 2 small chips on the edge. No scratches, kind of odd.

I've never received a damaged or non-working game but whenever you buy used, put it in the damn disc try and make sure it boots up and stuff. :x that's just common sense.

Got my order today for Prey and Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. I haven't tried either yet but both look brand new. Glad I waited for both, $35 isn't a bad price for the two of them. Was really interested in both of them. Sniper reviews scared me away but hopefully it has been fixed a little. Plus I was able to get the Season Pass included. Worst case scenario, it will add to the games I trade in during the next SB.
