I wonder if the Lego collection will finally offer co-op over XBL/PSN..

Guessing no, because of course not.  Far be it for people to want to play with their friends (or their children) that don't live under the same roof.

No Anthem sale yet. Surely it'll hit $40 before the end of March.

Even if they turn it around now it should hit $40 by April, easy.

That said, it has little staying power at 30. I only play with friends now, as the I DON'T WANT THAT OMELET grind has gotten boring. I fully expect there to be a huge dropoff of players come Friday.

For sure, I still think we will see it hit $40 this month especially if The Division 2 does well it's first week out.

I rented Anthem and also had fun playing the game and generally enjoy the gameplay loop, but it's literally everything around it that is different levels of bad and frustrating. The frequent and long load times make me not want to do more than a handful of missions at most during a session due to having to spend so much time in loading screens between the missions. I also found the loot to be very disappointing and lame. I was also not thrilled with the way they are handling cosmetics and microtransactions for them. I think Anthem will eventually address these issues, but at this point, I think it's too late for the game to pick up any real steam now. Anthem isn't even a month old and for me it's already been overshadowed by Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2 in terms of new releases that I am devoting my gaming time too.

Really hoping for Resident Evil 2 sale soon. I got $10 in rewards waiting for it.

It's only been 2 weeks. These sales are planned well in advance so they can get signage into stores.

Looks like it does. Weird that stores don't have it yet. Tuesday releases are usually in by Friday.

This may not be the right place for this, but I can't seem to get the in-store pickup $1 discount to work. Normally I get it to work by going to the checkout page and changing from shipping to store pickup, but the discount isn't applying for me.

You sure the store has it in stock?

I see people posting that all the time on various forums. Everyone just needs to realize they aren't always going to get their free dollar for pretending they were going to ship something they always intended to pickup. ;)

Yes; it says it's in stock and can be picked up in one hour.

And they can certainly expect to pay the shipping in spite of it. ;)

Same old comments about Anthem again. Some people just don't value their time at all, or just don't know a turd of a game when they see one. Just recently it was shown a level 1 starter weapon was the strongest in the entire game due to some effed up mechanics, which upends the entire point of getting loot. How an issue like that exists just underscores the incompetence.

I'm going to agree with this one.  I always had my orders shipped since forever, it was more convenient for me.  But I did start taking advantage of the $1 off store pickup incentive as of late. 

 

While it was a nice perk, I actually found a more profound incentive in ordering online for store pickup.  I noticed that virtually all my PS4 games were NOT loose discs in the case. And in the only scenario where it was, I was able to quickly swap it out  right there and then.

 

So if the $1 off perk is over, I'm OK with it, and will still order online for store pickup.  Online to home delivery orders always results in PS4 games being loose disc cases at least 8/10 times.  Not to mention I get my games in-hand much quicker....and in much, MUCH, better condition.

 

Besides, some of the people at my BBY are pretty damn cool. :)

Thanks Tyrok. Would you be able to share if you see any TVs on sale, particularly mid-range models ($500-$1000)?

Players will always outsmart devs when it comes to scaling or static values. It's just math and reminds me of the classic example of WoW rogues during vanilla that had static damage values on finishers. An incredibly smart player, Mute, forced the devs to completely revamp rogue dps after showing that rogues required only a level 1 dagger (and nothing else equipped) to kill a level capped player. It will always happen when it comes to unexpected player behavior because nobody tests these things.

 

Incompetence will always happen, that's law. What can't be fixed is the damage done to the community in its infancy from bugs and primarily bad design. This game suffers far worse from the latter at this point.

One trick I've used (YMMV) if I don't get it to show is to go to my phone and use the mobile site (not the app) to do it. That's how I got the dollar off for the last 2 UHD's I bought last week. I'm having a harder time getting it to work for my GCU copy of Devil May Cry 5 though. Maybe there's a limit now per customer or something.

My GCU expires on the 18th, hopefully some deals next week!

Anyone know the subject line for the email sent out with 25% off a single game for those that have GCU expiring? Haven't seen it come through but maybe I missed it...

Just got mine last month. I believe it says something like: [Your Name], we are sorry your GCU is expiring.

hard to miss if it was like mine, Thank You, (name). Save 25% on the game of your choice. also seems like 5 days before expiration is pretty common
