What are folks thoughts about this game in terms of quality? Discounts are good and all but are these two games actually worth playing?

They are both actually really good. SoT is made by Obsidian who did Fallout New Vegas, and the 2nd was done by Ubisoft. They look identical to episodes of the show, the humor is hilarious, and they are actually surprisingly deep in terms of RPG elements (different classes and abilities, 2nd one is similar tactics wise to Mario Rabbids on switch)

That's an awesome deal! I never did play The Stick of Truth and this also comes with all the DLC. I'm getting it. I price matched at BB to make sure I got a sealed game. The PM process was so easy and quick. Free shipping too. The OP should update this by including the Gold Steelbook edition.

I did the same thing, but I got it for cheaper since he said that the game with taxes included $18.30.

 

Btw, I got next day free shipping, but I did order two one ps4 version for me, and a xbox version for my brother.

Thanks for the heads up on the SB editions.  Grabbed X1 and PS4 versions to get free shipping, will decide which one to keep and which one to return later.

Only one GS in my area had the Gold X1 copy and no Best Buys. It was gutted since it was the last copy but the guy gave me 10% off. Codes worked and disc was flawless

Good to know codes still worked.

The combat was way better in this game, but the story is much better in stick of truth. Still worth it at this price.

Just my opinion but Stick of Truth is vastly superior to TFBW. I laughed all the time playing the first game. The second game only got the occasional chuckle.

I played fractured but whole first and enjoyed it more than the stick of truth.

They're both worth playing if you enjoy South Park and/or Mario style RPGs.

Picked up the "new" PS4 gold edition for $20 at gamestop today. The employee slid the plastic cover off then opened up the steelbook and I said "can I get one that's new and not opened?" he said "ummmm this one is new... wait... yeah it's new" Then I replied "don't you have any other ones that are new?" he then said "no we don't. we usually just put the little plastic seal over them on the side" so I gave it the benefit of the doubt and bought the game.

 

Checked out the game later and the steelbook is scratched up all over, the plastic sleeve is scuffed up and has sticky residue where stickers were pealed off, and the envelope inside that holds the postcards is almost completely ripped out on one side and looks super rough. The dlc codes are valid (I didn't redeem them thought).

 

Anyways I got home and had bestbuy.com price match it so I can get an actual NEW copy of the damn game and I'm going to take the one I got from gamestop back. Hopefully they don't give me any crap since it's technically opened but I didn't even open the damn thing my self.

Thank you for the heads up on this. I actually didn't know the gold edition was on sale too until a friend texted me about it tonight. I called up Best Buy and had them PM for stick pick up since I can't go to a store soon, and don't trust them shipping steelbooks.

This is why I hate GS. I trade stuff in there because they give more $$ (most of the time) and use the credit for eShop/Xbox/PSN funds. Rarely buy anything from them... the rumors of them going out of business makes me smile.

Unfortunately, they will give you crap, so go in prepared. As far as their policy goes, as soon as you remove that little seal they put on the side it's considered "opened". Hilarious, right?

thing is they didn't have any little seal on it. the guy opened it glanced inside then slid it back in the plastic slipcover.

PSA:

 

I just tested a code for The Stick of Truth :ps4: and it still works, so either they were reactivated or they were never deactivated.  The same may be true about the Season Pass code.

Season pass code lists an expiration date of 12/31/2099 (or something like that), so there are no worries about that code being expired if it hasn't been used.

Gold Edition is also on sale for PS4 and Xbox One ($19.99):

https://www.gamestop...-edition/131585

 

If someone grabs the Xbox One version and doesn't need the season pass; I have some Xbox Credit/iTunes/Amazon GC I'll trade for it.

Grabbed the last "new" (gutted) Xbox One copy this evening with a $10 rewards certificate that knocked the price down to $9.99.  Great use of rewards points, and it also keeps the employees from blurting out that I have over 10,000 points to everyone in the store.

 

And, not willing to trade the season pass, but I wish you the best of luck on that endeavor.

I might order an extra copy for shipping. The store I ordered from for pick up is the only one under 50 miles, yet it’s still 25 miles away. I just don’t trust best buy shipping steelbooks.

What’s the expiration date for the gold edition season pass? Just want to know if it still works even though it’s past the expiration date. Maybe other gold editions still got codes that work

I redeemed the code for the first game and it worked so I guess results may vary

Everything was in great condition for my Xbox 1 gold edition but the ridiculous part is that the clerk (I think he's a manager) took out a knife and broke the factory seal in front of me claiming he had to check it. I just let it happen because I only wanted the codes anyway, but I'm leaving a negative review.

I bought the steel book edition gamestop "new" last night for ps4 and even though the voucher for stick of truth was expired it still worked when I entered it.

Mine worked to fwiw

While I have no idea why they would open the game right in front of you (I guess to prevent a return or something?), I don't think it's enough to warrant a negative review.  It's not like the game was opened prior to you buying it...

Technically it was opened before I bought it. They sold the gutted copy to another guy before me, and opened the real "last copy" (my sealed hold) right in front of me before I paid. It was my choice to buy it after he opened it, but I don't like that he did it. I'm not going to fabricate the reason why I didn't like the service. A review is a way to leave an opinion about the service. GameStop can then decide whether they care or not.
