I believe cheapest it has ever been, but do you guys think it'll be cheaper on black friday?

This is almost my buy price.. I do think this will hit $29.99 (before GCU) or less during the holidays so I think I will wait it out.  Good find though OP.

Probably my GOTY (yes, even over Horizon Zero Dawn). Well worth it at this price.

So tempting. But it's gonna drop even lower. It was over shipped to hell and back. S-E games always drop to $20

I agree. I have too much backlogs right now; almost BF so probably I will wait on that as well.

I'm playing through it currently and I'm about 12 or so hours in. I'm enjoying it but it's nowhere near my top ten of the year so far.

It takes time to show its hand, just like the first one.

Close enough, waiting for BF and I'm predicting $25.

You could of said nowhere "Nier" your top ten ha.

 

 

I had a month of Gamefly a while back. I got up to the Forest area. Id say pretty far into it.

 

Some bad and good. Graphically, it's a very ugly game with framerate drops and hitches on the PS4 Pro. Very flat and bland environments. Kinda 1st generation PS3 you could say. Also side quests are pretty terrible. Not even much story up to the part I was at beyond basic stuff. Some Aliens(or ancient evil) were revived if I remember correctly. Some of the soundtrack is good(Nier on PS3 was better). I like the speed of 2B. The combat is alright but very simple and button mashy. Lack of enemy variety is a problem. I like the mix of random gameplay.

 

Not destroying the game as I would buy when cheap enough to see it through. $28 GCU is tempting though.

I want this, but I have enough to play. Maybe on BF at around $20.

You do realize that would only save you a whopping four dollars?

This place isn't called cheapassgamer for no reason.

What's the main selling point of this game, story or gameplay? I actually thought it was a hack n slash, not RPG.

I thought it did a good job at being a hack n slash. Best selling point is probably that video game ass. Lol.

I thought the 20% gcu discount no longer applies to Black Friday sales?

Tempting, but I want digital, so I might wait another couple of months and see what they have on BF.

If this price sticks all week I may man it on payday. One less game to worry about on black friday.

Considering the amount of replies the front page threads have, I would've guess this placed was MSRPgamer.com. 

 

On topic:

 

No game this year comes anywhere close to N:A for me. Masterwork through and through.

It doesn't, however last year Best Buy ran the same black Friday prices throughout the month of December allowing for you to use GCU.. good possibility they do it again.

That's assuming it drops to $29.99, I'm betting it will be better than that, $19.99 - $24.99 is my bet and I'm willing to wait and find out.
