ended up with God of War & Shadow of the Tomb Raider for $14 each due to the various amazon price matches and promos with amex and the browser extension $5 coupon  :mrgreen:

 

Also picked up monster hunter world and FFXV Royal from target for $15 each and they gave me a $1 off for consolidating the orders into 1.

Lucky dude. I missed the God of War price matches.

So Wal-Mart can't be serious. Has anybody else experienced this? I was denied a sale (for the 2nd straight year on Black Friday mind you) on an item that is in their sale ad (last year was on a game that was not only listed, but had a picture as well, which I waited in like for almost an hour for). I brought up Rampage, Skyscraper, and Rambo on 4K to the register. Rampage rang up properly at 8.96. The other two rang up at standard price. I told the lady they were supposed to be on sale. She said they were standard price because they didn't have the "PROMO" sticker on them, which honestly I have never seen before, nor did the vast majority of blu-rays on the shelves even have. I was dumbfounded. I honestly thought I was being trolled. I was waiting for the hidden camera to be revealed. I thought about asking for a manger, but I didn't want to make a scene. I was beyond pissed though. How is this a thing? I have never heard of this before. It's extremely arbitrary, random, and inconvenient. What if someone were to wait in line for an hour only to be denied a sale simply because their item didn't have the proper sticker on it (similar to my experience last year)? If you're going to implement something so incredibly arbitrary and specific, then why not specify that in the ad itself? ESPECIALLY considering the sales are in-store only. That makes no sense. This is exemplary of why Wal-Mart is trash.

Yeah...somehow it didn't seem all that appealing to me.

I was looking at exclusives and the only games I really want are Sea of Thieves, Quantum Break, Cuphead and Ori and the Blind Forest. And all of them are technically playable on PC. A $199 Sea of Thieves bundle would have been tempting.

Exactly. Compare those 4 "exclusives" I mentioned above to the 200+ games I played on PS4 this year. It's the same reason I haven't got the Switch yet; because I can't justify paying $299 just to play Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey.


EDIT: I don't mean to start a console war here, this is just my personal preference.


The switch is amazing. Playing Mario Odyssey and bring something different then playing so many shooters like cod.

I mainly use my Xbox one s for Netflix. If
Quantum break was on sale... Is PC almost always better then Xbox one and PS4 games?

it must be you, i dont even get the promo copies, i get movies off the shelves and games from the case and zero problems. also, self checkout is your friend, especially at walmart.

Quantum Break was decent but definitely pales in comparison to Sony exclusives. I'll give See of Thieves a go with Game Pass but I'm not expecting much. I am interested in Crackdown 3 since I enjoyed the first two so hopefully it turns out well. New Gears of War next year I think and Halo 6 down the line I'm sure so I'll play those as well. 

 

I have a Switch but it's mainly a dust magnet since it's the weakest of the current consoles, I don't care about portability and of course, no achievements. Breath of the Wild is great but I didn't get very far into Mario Odyssey. Might have had something to do with the fact that there weren't any trophies popping but that's more my problem than the game's. :D

Nintendo would greatly benefit from a “trophy” system. I absolutely love hearing the trophy ping notification when I earn one lol. I would easily go for a play on Zelda for example if it had trophy’s

Rough guess on my part would be $2,206.85 give or take about $10.

 

The TV I bought last month cost me more than that.  I am still not done shopping.

Yeah, right now it just makes more sense for me to funnel all my funds into one console rather than spread myself thin (it's not like I have any more time to spare). But I did forget about XB's backwards compatibility and I still haven't played Alan Wake or Fable yet. Maybe next Black Friday.

I feel the same way about Wacko-Mart but went by today to pick over the remains and found a copy of Dragon Ball Fighter Z for the Xbone buried in one of the demolished cardboard stands. The cashier corrected it to $17 because it had a purple dot on it. You just never know what you’ll get there.....

The Xbox bundles are glorified shit. Unless you're getting a One X with something must-have there is no point. A friend bought a basic Switch for $299.99 just because of that GameStop giftcard and I told him he should have waited until they got more stock in with the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle. You're paying the same price and getting nothing with the system. 

 

I haven't even been near a Switch until last night and those joycons are the most overpriced pieces of shit I've seen on any console at any time. Tiny fucking cheap plastic wastes of money and for $80 a pair is ludicrous. My sister needs more controllers and there are no good deals on them anywhere. If there is a quality wired controller at a good price maybe it's an alternative.

 

Side note: Target shipped my order of Dragon Quest XI in two days but they sent me the normal edition and not the Edition of Light which is what it should have been. I had to go to Target and exchange it. The in-store copies were mixed together with both standard and Edition of Light versions. The Edition of Light is even the display copy.

Think he's referring to the fact that only Spyro 1 is on the disc and you have to download the others. Not a big deal to me but I can see somebody with bad internet being upset.

I think he was trying to make a joke (a bad one at that), that only the first game is on the disc and the other two are downloads

It's only about half that, but I'm not including the new computer we had to get last month.  Didn't include clothes or kitchen stuff either, just stuff that's optional.  Pretty expensive month.

My new apt is a block away from Wal-Mart and Best Buy, so I decided to walk over and check out the commotion around 8 on Thursday. It was still packed, but it looked like the initial craziness died down. Only had wait about 5 mins to checkout at each store. Surprisingly, everything I was interested in was in stock.

Best Buy:
Mario Kart Switch Bundle - $300
Insignia Switch Case - $12
128 GB Micro SD - $20

Wal-Mart:
Dragon Ball FighterZ - $25
Pokken Tournament - $35
Breath of the Wild - $45

I don't know what was more painful, realizing how much money I unexpectedly spent or realizing how many hours my backlog gained.

Might as well see if the bundle that comes with both games goes on sale.
