My Dishonored code from the Dishonored 2 limited edition expired though. I was pissed


You might still try to use the code if you haven’t already. I just opened a few of my games that had expired codes and all of them still worked.

No, it's a known issue with the expired code. Bethesda will probably say tough shit if you contact support. Xbox One copies may work, but PS4 are done.

Does best buy typically have pokemon cards/codes for red/blue/yellow in store?

 

Online keeps cancelling my digital orders. I'm trying to buy them with a gift card

I think they do but even if they don't you can just give them the sku at the register to buy anything digital. That's all the cards are doing anyway.

Would the code be printed on the receipt or emailed to me? Because I don't want to go over there and still have my item cancelled

I went to the store. They don't have the codes and they won't let you do a SKU enter. Apparently the physical cards were removed from the stores last year

I picked up Paranormal Activity for PSVR. I was hoping to get it during a good PSN sale, but it was hard to pass up at $10. The lowest it's gone on PSN was $20.

Darn it, forgot to add the $30 GC, so I cancelled each item in my order and decided to just pass on it.

Picked up a Cuphead art cell box. GCU didn't apply but I'm fine with $15 anyway.

 

Also went ahead and got Valkyria Revolution against my better judgment. Hopefully I'll find $7 worth of fun in it.

You won't regret it.

 

I recommend playing at night.  Maybe it's just me, but somehow, knowing that it's actually night in the real world helps add to the scariness factor of games like this one.

Has fire emblem awakening been cheaper digitally? I feel like it has maybe been $27.99 but has it ever been $20? Anyone remember?

I got VR as well, came with the soundtrack and a pin so as long is it isn't Monopoly on the switch broken I'd say it's worth it. Also picked up the SF collection and Fate.

Any thoughts on the TB headsets? Are these at a good price? I’m just now getting into the market for one, so thanks in advance. My priorities are a crystal clear mic for my friends and decent audio for Hellblade.

With the destiny $5sale, I think we saw the best of the summer deals....

I’m so glad I bought the Nintendo games I Did, during the time when BBY still had some sales even with GCU lol, because they turned out to be same prices

I think a lot of people echo my thoughts:BBY is no longer a retailer for video game deals ....

Eh I just think you guys are butthurt about the ending of GCU, act all melodramatic about it, and will come running back the moment they have a good sale.  Looking at my purchase history with them, I've rarely bought games from them during the summer.

But if you want to cut off your nose to spite your face, go for it.

I'm an Astro fan. I also use the Gold Playstation headphones. My friend has Steelseries and really like it. I had TB wireless headset several years ago and it hurt to wear with my glasses. I also got a lot of interference so I'm hesitant to buy TB again.

I've never had an opinion about a company this size flip so hard in such short time.

The entire point is that not only have they discontinued GCU, but they haven't answered with anything in return, not even a solid sale. If their "black Friday" equivalent sale is this lackluster, how can a regular customer continue to have confidence in the company? I have my GCU through 2020, so your "just butthurt cuz GCU" is moot here. My opinion on the matter is as objective as can be.

They're not going to have crazy blowout replacement sales while many of still have GCU into 2020.

Personally I haven't had much luck with tb products. They either don't fit my head comfortably or I get the ones that break. Luckily before the return policy expires. So I don't buy them or tritans anymore.
I have razer and astro. I want to get another razer for my Xbox one to replace the standard headset that came with the system lol.

Oh also check out some ear buds if you like those.

So your advice is what, to not be competitive for the next two years?

They've had sales before, and with every single day, there are fewer GCU members. This means the amount of deals should steadily increase, not drastically decrease as it has been. They could have easily had competitive prices for this sale and make GCU ineligible, as they have for their actual BF ads. I think we've run out of justifications and excuses for them.

I'm not expecting blowout sales. Just...something. While I agree customers aren't "owed" anything especially if the GCU program was financially unstable, we are not to blame for the market standards THEY'VE helped create. They've dug their hole and they're only digging deeper. It's time to think up ideas to restore customer faith, not be antagonistic. Otherwise, basic economics tells us that we will absolutely be sucked up by another retailer, even if it's PSN and XBL themselves.

I use the newer model Golds. Good sound. No mic in your face and if the battery starts to die it’s easy to plug them right into the DualShock. They also work with the Switch I’ve heard. You can find them for $80 ish even less if eBay has a coupon going on. Good luck.

bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch.

 

I guess I need a CAG break because the complaining in EVERY thread is really getting to me. 

Who is more competitive than BB right now? While Gamestop has certainly stepped up their game in the last year, Best Buy still has better and more frequent sales than them, Target (aside from stupid glitches), Walmart, Amazon, and whoever else you want to name. Even without GCU, how many stores have God of War for $50 right now? I realize that's not a deep discount, but jesus christ, they're not in business to constantly sell shit at a loss so nerd can feel good about himself for spending money on something he doesn't really want and is only buying because it's cheap. Physical sales are going away. These stores can't make up in volume what they lose in profit anymore. It just doesn't make sense to give shit away anymore. 

 

And before the chorus of "well this is cheap ass gamer dood" begins, yes it is. You can be a cheap ass and wait for the inevitable decent price to come along (and they always do) without having to bitch that a whole 24 hours has passed since there was a deal worth getting. Find something else to do with your time. Maybe play one of the cheap games you got already instead of letting it sit in a pile until you decide to go sell it somewhere else, and then bitch about how bad the trade in values are.
