Picked up Dragon Marked for Death, the main reason why I was excited for this sale...but wondering if I won't get it now, since they took it off their website. Eek.

i held off on buying a flash drive for playstation classic because i heard some of the larger size 3.0 drives had issues. anyone recommend a good drive for the classic from best buy or amazon? i don't plan on doing otg at the moment so just a good solid drive for the easy method would be fine

I go to look up Dragon Marked For Death to see what kind of game it is or if I really want physical over digital and the thing sells out so hard it's completely gone from their site. Guess they made the decision for me.

 

 

^ Same here, Dragon Mark of Death was removed from my cart on checkout. Probably for the best, I'm sure it will drop that low again before the end of the year. 

It's not even on their site anymore. I doubt it.

They took it down, probably to fix some glitch we missed. Even if it's gone forever on best buy, it's drop to $20 at Gamestop or somewhere.

I'm still waiting for Disgaea 5 Complete for Switch to drop back down to $15 again. Good luck to you.

I never thought I'd live to see a sale on Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. It gets old constantly seeing other Mario titles like Super Mario Odyssey and Waluigi's Taco Stand on sale instead, so this is truly refreshing.

Nice.

The issue isn't that they're big, it's that they're 3.0. The PSC has resistors to limit the power the usb slot can use. You can either get a cheap 2.0. Normally not above 64 gb, short out the resistors, do the otg (but this one and the resistors require you to change the physicality of the machine or the kernel), buy an adapter that will power the usb instead, or do what I did, and use an extra or buy a new external hard drive that has its own power outlet.

A good cheap usb that has reviews saying it worked for their classic.

I used that exact flash drive on my PSC and it worked great.

I've been informed that these work as well, though I haven't had a chance to confirm it for myself.

Off topic, but it seems that the steelbooks are being included with the Ritual of the Night purchases. If you had missed out and had planned to purchase it anyways, it might be worthwhile to grab it now.

Picked up Hellblade for in-store pickup. The lack of GCU working kinda stings, as mine expires next week. Would have bought some more just to experience the thrill one last time, but alas.

Ugh. I got dragon marked for death during the most recent b2g1 sale at GameStop when it was $45, and now I'm having regret about not maximizing my savings...

Otherwise, there's a couple of $20 switch games that caught my eye, but not much else

Looks like they only have digital copies for $14.99. I was going to buy it, but I want it physical. 

 

I went ahead and ordered Darksiders on Switch but nothing else really for me here.

Why? Because they, like every other retailer, are scaling back on sales and inventory of physical media which takes up a lot of floor space and hardly makes them any money?

Nope. Try again.

Oh boy I hope Amazon RAISES their prices to match these amazing deals.

From what I understand Best Buy is actually doing pretty well right now in terms of business. In terms of being THE best place to buy games, Best Buy stopped being that place when GCU died.

Well, yeah, because they were likely losing money on GCU. Same reason why Amazon did the same thing. Given publishers are striving to push consumers away from retail, and that now over half of sales are digital, just makes less and less sense for stores to waste their time and energy to keep the attention of a dwindling pool of buyers.

My GCU expired last month, so nothing really stands out. As I was scrolling through the list I saw some okay deals on PSVR games and was hoping for Blood and Truth, but it's probably still to early and selling too well to warrant a drop yet.

 

One thing I did notice on the site but not the post is that Bloodstaned for the PS4/XBO is $30 and now comes with the metal case (which was previously exclusive to the Switch version). Good deal for anyone who wants the metal case.

Not bad that game looked flawed, but at $14.99 I may try to get some co-op action out of it.

GCU doesn't matter much since it doesn't apply anyway.  If it did, I'd be all over bloodstained, but eh.

The digital copy (of Dragon Marked for Death) only has half the characters, so physical is a much better deal.

Also available at Target for $24.74 when you order for store pickup.

 

I got it from Target earlier this week. Now debating if I want to return/spend $5 more for the steelbook (not like it serves any special purpose)...

Good point. I'd forgotten since no Target near me had it available for pickup, same situation for Judgement. I guess if someone cares about the metal case it could still be a better deal, but not on raw price. For what it's worth it is a really nice metal case but I know that's not everyone's thing.

I'm really considering a curved monitor for home office use.  Was thinking about a 27" 1080p, but reviews say text could be less clear at that resolution / size.

Any experience with the MSI Optix 24" that's in the sale?

Reads like a good one to use if I ever want to game on it too.
