Thank you so much!  Finally pulled the trigger on an Xbox One X for $399 after the discount was applied and used my amazon gift card balance to pay the balance.

#13890966 Zelda BOTW Explorer's Edition and Link Edition 2DS System Thread

Posted by coolz481 on 25 November 2017 - 12:45 PM

I'm annoyed that BB didn't sell this with GCU. My wallet, however, is relieved that this has forced me to exercise some self restraint.

My hope is that when the Black Friday ad expires tonight, we'll be able to apply GCU to the Explorer's Edition.  It shows in stock at all of the locations near me as of Saturday morning, so fingers crossed!

You guys were spot on this week, a lot of other podcasts are making a big deal out of the EA Star Wars cancellation. They obviously wouldn't have shut it down if the game looked good and profitable. It was prob still 2 years out and to pay all those salaries must have not seemed like it would pay off when the game came out.

Good on wombat for not joining the Nintendo bandwagon. My kids want a Switch for Christmas but I agree they need to get out of the original Xbox era of features and come to the modern day. They release an update like this and I'm sure IGN and other sites are praising them for adding a feature that still isn't up to date.

Wombat can never be on the Nintendo bandwagon - God bless him, he was a Master System kid!

I think I'm going to hold off on using that 20% code until next week when Stardew Valley releases.  Nothing else really catches my eye at the moment...

#13543698 [DEAD] Best Buy $25 off $100 Starting 11/27 with Visa Checkout

Posted by coolz481 on 27 November 2016 - 02:01 PM

Ugh, can't pull the trigger to buy anything... dont' really need anything esp since I don't have GCU...

Two preorders combined with this visa checkout deal effectively pays for the entire GCU 2-year membership.  Definitely the best deal out there, plus you have price match guarantee and 20% off older games, unlike Amazon.

#13543627 [Dead] PS4 Pro $339.99 Amazon

Good on you if you held off on picking up the Pro.  It's only $60, but it is annoying that the price on the system has come down this quickly due to the various BF deals.  The upgrade is definitely worth it if you've got a 4K tv!

#13530130 Best Buy Early Black Friday Access for Elite/Elite+ *DEAD*

Posted by coolz481 on 21 November 2016 - 10:03 AM

Nuts, the two games I really wanted to pick up were Mortal Kombat XL and Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate, but for some reason, the PS4 version of SW is not on early access even though the Xbox One version is.

Were the restocked Smash amiibo Pokemon-related, or were there others pictured too?  Still waiting on that Robin and Lucina reprint....

Did the Direct mention any Amiibo integration for Fire Emblem?

No.  My hope is they're planning to restock Lucina and Robin for its release though.

Preordered!  Need a Goron and human form Midna amiibo next!

#13024116 Nintendo eShop cards 10% off at Best Buy

Best Buy's got a small promotion going on for eShop cards at the moment:





Good time to combine this with the $10 reward credit for $100 spend by My Best Buy members and the $20 credit with $200 spend by American Express.

#12987297 Xenoblade Chronicles X Guide (CE) $24 via Amazon

Posted by coolz481 on 25 October 2015 - 04:53 PM

Thanks for the link.  Getting this to go along with the collector's edition.  Xenoblade Chronicles was my favorite game of the last generation, and even if X isn't up to that level, I'm sure it will be great.

Anyone know if Robin will be restocked soon?  

Robin wasn't in that picture that Nintendo tweeted out last week telling everyone to be on the lookout for new stock, so I doubt it.  I wonder if they plan on timing the Fire Emblem amiibo restocks (and Roy) for the 3DS release of Fates early next year.  Hopefully this action by Nintendo will deflate the bubble on these other rare figures, if people start to believe that huge restocks are a question of when, not if.


Also, huge thanks for Darkpal245 on these boards for sending me a Marth + Little Mac at cost plus shipping since I couldn't find either around my area.  I haven't traded on CAG in awhile and it's good to know there's still great traders around!

#12539430 Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Posted by coolz481 on 01 March 2015 - 05:10 AM

With the exception of litepink's post, I can't believe what I'm reading here.  This game was utterly fantastic from beginning to end, and just as compelling as Canvas Curse ten years ago.  Epic Yarn offered zero challenge at all, while this game ramps it up by the fourth world.  The boss fights were all really well done, and the soundtrack - my god, the soundtrack is so good.  The vehicle levels changed up the strategy and the early enemy encounters trained you well for the latter parts of the stages.  I especially enjoyed the battleship levels where you map out your route ahead of time.  This game is a steal at $40, and even better if you can get it at Best Buy for $32 with GCU.

Nice to see a discount on Dragon Age Inquisition already.  I'll bide my time for Best Buy to hold a sale on it to combine with GCU.
