I read this from reddit that all the stock from Target for the Deluxe edition is at Goodwill. 

 

Here is the pic from reddit:

I didn't pick up Mass Effect because Zelda had come out around the same time. Was Mass Effect that bad of a game?

At which store? Goodwill is the most YMMV thing you could post. It could be one Goodwill store in Montana for all we know. This helps no one.

The dates on those stickers are two months old. If they're out there, there won't be many left.

It's sad that Bioware Montreal couldn't live up to BioWare Edmonton.  Good call fusing them into Motive Studios, cause them even having the "Bioware" name attached to them really hurt the series.

If they were as clear as WB was with Arkham: Origins or 2K was with Bioshock 2, everyone would have been somewhat more understanding.

Instead of Montreal being the problem, the blame effected Bioware's name as a whole, and in turn the Mass Effect series.  It really sucks.

The date/time stamps on the reddit posts are from the middle of July so it's 2 months ago, this is as YMMV as they get, and the OP has been here since 2004.  Oy vey.

I didn't think it was bad... it just wasn't as good as people wanted it to be.  It had a rough launch (animation problems, balance problems, save files that could get corrupted if you saved in the wrong place), and even though the devs kept working on it after it came out, the launch hurt it against the stuff that WASN'T buggy at release.  I've seen more people excited about Nier Automata post-release than Andromeda.

Target does send off it's unsold clearance usually to Goodwills. I would pick one of these up for like $5 or so haha.

I don't think it's impossible to see this at other stores. I don't know about Target, but at TRU we usually get way too many copies of EA games like this. Like I've still got probably 30 or 40 of Battlefront in the back.

I've heard the rumor Target unloads at Goodwill, but after visiting Goodwills in 10 cities across 3 states the last few years I have never seen it.

I haven't seen video games from there but I have seen some iPad case covers. They just slap their price sticker over the Target one.

I think Target made a mistake, they meant to dump all the extra Mass Effect 3 copies they have for $14.99 clearance.

I haven't seen much game-wise, but they definitely do.  I found some tablecloths and placemats a few weeks ago that had Target clearance stickers underneath the Goodwill sticker.  Just to show how prices can drop, the placemats were originally $5 each at Target, then clearanced for $2.50 each, then at Goodwill they were 4 for $2 :D

I grab Target stuff from Goodwill all the time, including tons of video game stuff. However, what each Goodwill gets from each Target is YMMV. For example, just cause one gets 40 copies of Mass Effect, doesnt mean any other might get any.

Soooo...

 

was the game really THAT bad? IDK if it's even worth picking up if it's an unenjoyable 50+ hours.

I just started Nexus Uprising. I planned to give Andromeda a shot around Black Friday when it hits 19.99. The user reviews since the facial animations patch are pretty decent (if you're a fan of the series).

I have to say I'll play the obligatory cost + shipping for any CAG that wants to get an extra for me!
