Have they given a name to what you have yet?

GCU-itis.

GCU-itis.

This disease name indirectly implies that you have an abundance of GCU - which is something that's going to be short supply next week.  I propose renaming your condition to hypoGCU-itis.  You can trust my suggestion, I am a doctor.

Why would you? Just stay up till midnight and order online. That's what I'm doing, and I don't even own a switch.

never ordered from Wal-Mart online before. How untimely is their shipping?

I don't usually have any problems, but I live in a high population area, so most packages come quickly.

Alright that's great to know, thanks.

I live in a populous area myself. Just didn't know if their shipping was as big of a mess as their stores.

only if you want more from the game. ask yourself that question and look deep within your soul. if you can't figure it out by then well go and rub one out and then think about it some more. thats usually the process i do when i can't make a decision.

The tweet was real, the info was false however. It was a mistake by Bestbuy support, that tweet has since deleted. If you look at that Scott's tweet history, you can see he jokingly asked Ken to honor it.

I was hoping it was real but something told me there was no way it was going to happen at least this black Friday.

Does gcu not apply to all games purchased this weekend or just the ones on sale? Just hypothetically speaking in case I see anything else I may want.

Deciding between these two tvs:
-Sharp - 50" Class (49.5" Diag.) - LED - 2160p - Smart - 4K Ultra HD TV Roku TV Model: LC-50LBU591U
-Toshiba - 55" Class (54.6" Diag.) - LED - 2160p - with Chromecast Built-in - 4K Ultra HD TV Model: 55L711U18

 

Anyone have experience with Lenovo laptops?

I expect this : Monday - Best Buy early access for elite members; Wednesday-best buy and Walmart sales start on line.

They have 2 day shipping free for most items now. So I ordered a movie on weds this week and got it yesterday. They use a shit ton of bubble mailers though, so if you're looking to buy a smaller CE or something, 50/50 chance on box/bubble mailer.

Well I'd planned on picking up that 64GB mSD card for 15 from best buy, but found a 256GB at my local pawn shop today for $25, went that route instead.

TVs are a wash, Toshiba has odd pixels according to rtings, Sharp isn't top tier either.

Fuck Lenovo, in the past at least they bundle their machines with spyware.

Does Best Buy usually put the PC versions of games on sale as well as console versions? I wanted to get FF14 Stormblood on PC.

Is it safe to say that even though they only picture the ps4 version of wildlands that the xbox version will be on sale as well?

Doubt you need an invitation for early access probably just log into your account and get the prices if elite or elite plus

Is the picture on this TV really that superb?

I ask because for $100 more you can get an LG OLED TV and I thought that was the gold standard.

What size, surely not 65"

Actually, here is Best Buy's own site for when deals go live:

 

https://corporate.be...-available-now/

 

 

holiday_black_friday_calendar_v05_blog.j

 

Notice the "SELECT DEALS" fine print like bit, but Monday is for Elite and Elite Plus, Tuesday for My Best Buy members.

Thank you for the info. Can only afford about $400 on a tv this year. May be use the $400 for next year.

 

No bundles for me. I'll keep looking for a laptop minus spyware.

They say that, but the only deals I remember being left out of early access last year were doorbusters and in-store only stuff.

Got an email about the weekly ad, which I usually don't get. All I really want are Pacific Rim and Mad Max 4k.

Dude, get the TCL one, last I checked it was $400, no need for BF and it has great ratings on rtings I’ll Link when I have the chance but that’s the one I might be getting.
