Came here to post this. I feel these deals are getting noticed by the usual OPs less frequently due to the overall underwhelming BB ads. Glad to see these still come around once in a while.

Next up for $20 - GCU:
The Evil Within 2
OnRush
Persona 5
MLB The Show 18
DS Remastered
Shadow of the Colossus
Ni No Kuni II
AC Origins

Some of these are not showing on the BB website.  Where do you see them listed at that price?

 

OnRush isn't the same as "Rush" ... not sure if that was a mistake or not.

They are just speculating what might go down to $20 next.

How does this compare to the first game? I remember reading about required microtransactions and then some news about getting rid of them.

Thats a damn good price.

Its everything of the first but more. Nemesis and combat were improved. The micros were blown out of proportion, IMO. They are not required at all, and you get plenty.

Why does it have a 3.8 user rating on Metacritic?

Because the gaming public spazzed out over non-essential microtransactions so they downvoted it to hell. Solid game at launch. Even better post launch. Well worth this price, trying to decide if I want to double dip on the Xbox version or wait for GOTY version with a separate trophy list like all WB games have.

Trying to stop buying games because my backlog is crazy but this is too tempting. Plus I really like the female skin, looks way cooler than Talion

Will there be a GOTY version since they announced a "Definitive Edition"? https://www.gamespot...s/1100-6460876/

Since the Definitive edition includes all paid DLC and all updates, isn't it basically a GOTY anyway.

Symantics. First Mordor game had a GOTY. Witcher 3 had a complete edition. Forget what the other was, but I'm petty sure there was a 3rd game that had the same treatment from the publisher and all 3 had game saves that were incompatible but also got new trophy lists.

Thought this came with a steelbook, but it's just a generic steel case.

Yes, this had me fooled because all of the Ubisoft Gold Editions seem to come with an actual steelbook.

 

Edit: just realized this is not Ubisoft.  Still had me fooled though lol.

The description reads

Comes bundled with Collectible Steelcase, Gold War Chest, two Nemesis Expansions: Slaughter Tribe and Outlaw Tribe, and with two Story Expansions: The Blade of Galadriel and The Desolation of Mordor.

Can anyone confirm it still has a steelbook

Is this before or after they decide to never finish your backlog?

Isn't the gold edition the GOTY edition already? It includes all four major expansions. I'm directly comparing the two and I don't see anything that would make someone buy the Definitive over the Gold edition. I guess it's just having the updates on disc?

If I hadn't already beaten the vanilla version (loved it), I would be all over this deal.  Great price for those who want to play the DLC in addition to the base game.

Having never found this at Target when it got merged with the vanilla version sku, it worked out as this was a better deal and I finally got one. Thanks OP.

It has a generic steel case with no spine, but not a traditional steelbook.

To Everyone:

 

According to WB:

 

"Please note that content beyond the main game is not pre-loaded on disc and requires an online connection to download."

 

In plain English, Definitive Edition and Gold are basically the same, all extra content that is not season pass is free for vanilla owners.

 

BTW, some people has checked that even if WB would planned to burn a new disc with all content is not possible because exceeds bluray capacity size. 

 

So two possible scenarios:

This is totally a repackaged Gold edition with vanilla disc and a single code that allow to download all content OR

A new disc which only difference with original vanilla is that is patched, but the whole extra content - tribe, season pass - needs to be download. A clear example is Telltale Season games like Batman.

 

Again, at the end, Gold and Definitive are basically the same. You still need to download stuff.

Exactly, it's my 2nd scenario, launch the game and the market is already gone, and the tier and other things from the main game patched, all the rest needs to be download.

For me, not need to wait for a drop for Definitive, with Gold I'm fine, still is going to devour your hard drive.
