And I literally just picked up a pre-owned copy at GS last week for a little over $15 after elite pro discount. What's even more hilarious is it was the copy I had traded in when the short-lived price glitch happened maybe a couple weeks after it was released. :-

 

Ah well, I'll just pick it up digital and either give someone or trade the physical copy at a local game store. :D

Why not just return it to GS?

I must be weird then, cause I'm a pretty OCD guy, and yet I can't stand to buy any DLC. Only ones I've ever bought are a few wrestlers in WWE and the Witcher 3 Blood and Wine. 99% of the time, even if it "completes the experience" it just feels like an add on to me that I don't need.

Funny story, I platinumed Spider Man and then loaned it to my friend. He also platinumed it, and then bought the DLC and beat that before giving it back. I bought the full game and yet he's played more of the experience than I have lol.

I agree with you and disagree with the previous post. I know almost NO ONE that buys DLC. I’m sure there are a lot of people that do but I don’t think that they are the majority. I think I read somewhere that the majority of people don’t buy dlc or pay for micro transactions- but the people that do spend a lot on it.

I’ve also only bought a few wrestlers in paid dlc and that’s about it. I’m not spending extra money on something digital unless I find it to be really, really worth it.

I buy DLC because I don't like things to be incomplete.  Notice I did not say I played the DLC.  I just buy it because OCD or whatever makes me think i'm getting less than a complete experience.  Of course, I have many games and DLC yet to be touched that i'm spent plenty on (usually waiting for a sale, though), but it's probably still cheaper than the therapy and medication it would take to fix me.

That's what I did for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

 

Unfortunately that's not always the cheap ass option if you went with the regular edition starting out.

It's hit or miss.  I've done this for DA:I, Just Cause 3 and Deus Ex Mankind Divided, where I picked up the base game for cheap (a while after release) then bought the all DLC on sale later on.  But I bought Mafia III planning to do the same thing but the DLC never goes on sale.

Which Why I said its best to just wait it out and get CE or DE. Get the base game and SP for like $20 bad part is the wait. I can say the witcher 3 dlc goes on sale all the time if I ever finish the game I can easily get the dlc. Bout all the games ive bought was $20 with all dlc. I regret buying soul calibur vi on day one as it was my 1st and be my last time paying $60 for a game. Dont even play it much like I should, then you have SP and maybe a SP2 in the future like tekken7 that's even more money.

Exactly. I pretty much hold off on games that I think are likely to get a complete edition down the line for that very reason, and the fact I'd like the entire thing on disc. It's getting a little harder these days, though, when you have these "Gold" editions that launch with the Season Pass included. It's like the publishers feel like, "Why put out a complete edition on disc when they can just buy the Gold Edition?" Bleh.
 

Actually, I think we are saying the same thing.  I don't think they will put it on sale anytime soon either, and your explanation is valid.  I was just responding to the guy that thought the pass should have been on sale by now, despite it not even all being out yet and seemingly every reason in the world for not discounting it yet in the US.

Yeah, I think I missed the context since I didn't see the post you were replying to.

I think the type of game and DLC is a big factor as well. Buying a wrestler, costume or weapon isn't really that big a factor since it doesn't change much of the story.  You're not missing out on anything by not having that DLC. But not buying the Assassin's Creed 2 DLC causes you to miss two whole chapters of the game, Burnout Paradise's DLC and you miss out a good portion of the map, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadows and Asura's Wrath and you miss out on the entire end of the games, etc.

This right here. :)

Unless you 100% every game you play, then you shouldn't worry about it.

Hmmm. How was the port on titans quest? I’m interested in all things diabloesque.

I'm curious too ...  I know they added couch co-op in a recent patch, but all I've seen of that is that it is split screen.  Surely you don't play spit screen the whole time, only when the 2 characters move too far apart, right?

Why hasn't this been updated? Not trying to be some douche alarmist but lately this site has been very slow when compared to Slickdeals and reddit. I was informed of the new slew of week 2 holiday deals by a SD, reddit, and even a shady site that was recommended by Google. In the past, CAG was consistently the first place I'd find it. Rip CAG?

We collectively decided that all deals should be posted slower than Slickdeals and Reddit.. you didn't see that post?

We also decided that anyone who complained about it would be called a fucknugget and ridiculed. So there ya go, fucknugget.

Why don't you provide the update first then?  That will be more a meaningful contribution than your douche alarmist post.  Speaking of Slickdeals, you only get links to the PSN Store.  Did you see anywhere in Slickdeals a post that shows precisely only the Week 2 addition, minus Week 1 deals?  I surely could not.  And just use SD and reddit if you prefer, and do not come to CAG thread to disrupt things here.  Easy as that.  Sure, RIP CAG.  You'll be happier with your decision in life, and a lot more people here will be happier with you gone.

Why not just return it to GS?

Why I didn't think about that to start with, I have no clue. Checked my receipt and I have until closing time tomorrow to exchange it for something else. I might go today just to be safe.

 

Thanks for the far better suggestion.

Great game. You’ll enjoy the short campaign and the giant multiplayer in the Star Wars universe is a great time.

It's a broken glitchy mess. The coop is cool but there are still game ending bugs and frequent crashing or lost items in coop.

CheapyDee, you should just go elsewhere then. You were a douche before you got banned and still a douche with your new account. You do nothing but complain about various retailers and sales.

Prior to Assassin's Creed Unity it seemed like every Assassin's Creed game eventually hit $10. Now it seems they hover in the 20-30 range and then disappear from deal lists. Is it realistic to hope for old-ass AC games to hit $10? Am I just missing something?

Not sure about the "effective" qualifier but I played a bit with the aim controller as I recall it had traditional twinstick FPS controls using that. Not sure how a DS4 would be different.

Blame the PS4/XB1 generation. It seems like hoping for $20 is more reasonable nowadays, though $15 is also possible. Then again, AC Syndicate is $10 or less now at Gamestop, so it might just take longer.
