#12891099 XBOX ONE Game Sale ($5 Thief, $10 Duck Dynasty, Sniper Elite III an...

Posted by ProfessorMicro on 28 August 2015 - 10:16 PM

I bought Thief at $6.99 with a pre-order of Adr1ft for $19.99 and used a "$10 off $25 or more" coupon.  I wonder if I try to PM Thief to save $2+tax if it would invalidate my coupon (because the order total is under $25) and actually cost me $8+tax more. :)

That's the kinda question that keeps CAGs awake at night.

 

 

Personally I'd be far too lazy to even bother typing that post, much less actually calling MS CS

Advanced Warfare was amazing. Double jump was the best part, plus it had a fucking laser gun. Only game better than AW was Destiny (game of the century).

Also, watch out for people selling sharks outside of Publix.

#12868588 $10 off $25 at Microsoftstore.com (with purchase of Golden Crisp cereal)

I always go to the self checkout when buying Golden Crisp in multiples.

I'm a college professor, and one of my former students is often bagging groceries at my local Publix.

I try to avoid her aisle because I had to fail her.

 

Three semesters in a row.

 

So it's a little awkward, plus I can't be sure she possesses the mental capacity to not put the eggs under the canned goods.

Instore Preorder Rant:

I'm also never pre-ordering in store again, idiots and hassles the whole way. First i had to type in my email into their laptop behind the counter, twice. She asked me the name of the game, two or three times. finally the maybe manager says he has to go to the back to get it. Comes back saying, wow you got the last one....I preordered it a-hole, literally to make sure i get one and they apparently don't actually hold you a copy. Meanwhile apparently he could've grabbed the sealed display one for me so i wouldn't have to wait. It was a kiosk so 'in the back' was 5 minutes away. Then I had to remind him about the card. Then they apparently have to do it in another transaction. He didn't know the code and him and the other people were joking about what they thought the code was. Then he goes to grab a bag. No small bags. Do you mind if its a medium. Sure, that's fine. He turns around, pause, turns back around. She gonna go get you a medium bag. No, that's fine I don't need a bag. She insists I take the GIGANTIC bag for like two xboxs, for my one game. Ignoring me saying that doesn't help me at all. Realize halfway to the car, they just used me for free advertisement. Now days later I see the card makes me go back there.

Sounds like Digital River is running their brick & mortar stores now as well as online.

Anyone have any extra codes?

No, but I got plenty of extra Golden Crisp. It's all yours my friend.

Yea I was curious as to how people learn what games are on sale

I believe the more aggressive cheapasses among us are using this:

http://xbldb.com/

but honestly, I just check this thread often. It's full of good people, interesting chatter, and the occasional giveaway.

 

Do keep in mind that the sales are reset roughly every Tuesday, so if there's something you got your eye on make sure to snag it by Monday evening. Also, if you wanted something but somehow forgot/missed it/slept in too late, don't sweat it. Sales usually recur, some with frightening regularity. You can practically set your watch by Rockstar sales.

Holy crap I want that Marth nendoroid. And Kirby. And Link. Give them all to me.

 

Also, the Dark Horse Ganondorf figure is down to ~97 on Amazon. I want it badly, but just can't seem to pull the trigger.

$74.99 w/o shipping, though there's often coupons available to take it down a bit. Do a little research and I'm sure you can find a coupon for some additional savings.

There's no such word as "que" in English. You either mean "cue" or "queue." "Que" is what in Spanish. This, combined with the Golden Crisp garbage, is why we can't take console people seriously.

I hope you don't mind me posting a picture of you on the left there (in thinner days, obviously). Your mother said I should post it and tell you to stop being such a dick on the internet.

 

Oh, and you may not recognize her next time you see her; I shaved her back.

Well I guess the real question about Katamari is whether myself and a 4.5 year old would get some enjoyment out of it together.

It's bright, it's colorful, it's less than five bucks.

 

You already know in your heart what to do.

What I do is, go into a IN-N-OUT, get a cup of water, and squeeze some free lemons by the ice tea stand. Get some free sugar packets from McDonald's. BOOM. Lemonade.

Accurate username confirmed.

I own one or two but have never actually played a Katamari game.  Can you elaborate as to why/how it makes it control poorly?

You roll the ball with two hands (each hand mapped to a thumbstick), so offset sticks take a little getting used to, especially if you were weaned on the original PS2 games. That being said, it's possibly the best in the series as it has larger worlds than before and the best soundtrack of all in my opinion. You can't go wrong by buying it, especially if you enjoy quirky/excessively Japanese games.

 

Seriously, it's worth getting for the crazy music and visuals alone. It's one of those games that is impossible to play without smiling.

I stopped work, everything I was doing, and logged in to my cheapassgamer account just to "like" this.

Ah, a fellow sentimental romanticist with the heart of a poet, I presume? You are in good company, friend.
