Wiki hosting? Thinking of converting "How Long Does It Take To Beat This Game Threa...

27 September 2010 - 06:23 PM

I've been using the "How Long Does It Take To Beat This Game Thread" for a while now. There doesn't seem to be much consolidated information out there on the net with average game times and that thread is one of the best resources I've found.

As a CaG I find it really good info how long a game is because I like to maximize my gameplay time per buck I spend. If a game is only 6 hours on single player I refuse to pay any more than $20 for it for example.

Problem is, it (unfairly) relies on one forum member to read the feedback posted by others and then update it himself. As the database grows it's also getting a little beyond the intended scope of a single forum post. It seems to me the perfect solution to this would be to setup a Wiki where people can just input the data themselves. Unfortunately though I have no clue how to setup a Wiki.

So, would CaG be interested in setting something like this up and hosting it? Does anyone else see value in this or am I out to lunch on this suggestion? The original creator of the thread is on board with this but doesn't know how to setup a Wiki either.

Thanks in advance for any feedback on this!

FS - God of War III and Uncharted 2 for $ 59.98 new, PM to $55.98

19 August 2010 - 06:03 PM

It would probably be in the weekly flyers thread if Princess Zelda was around to post them. Since she's not though, I thought I'd post this deal since it's pretty decent.

FS has it in their flyer starting tomorrow that if you buy them both you can get God of War III and Uncharted 2 for $60 new. Possible PM opportunity at BB to get it down to $56 to make it even hotter (BB has GoWIII for $60 and Uncharted 2 for $40).

BBV - Uncharted 2 used $14.99

20 July 2010 - 03:46 PM

Edit:

Just in time for those of you who missed out on the TSCC deal, there is an updated price at BBV. Granted it's used, but still a great deal.

It's still $29.99 but is a part of their 50% off promo for August. The promo should have started on Monday but apparently not all their systems were updated right away. It scans in at $29.99 and the discount doesn't get applied until after you go to buy it (just like the 50% off $4.99 games promo). So if they say it's $30 get them to try going a step further and it should come off.

The location I was at had a few but I only bought one since I'm hoping some folks get to pick this up to play rather than just hoard. It's such a great game.

I'll post my receipt in a bit.

PS - for what it's worth and to pay credit where it's due, I originally found out that this deal may exist from Alexisonfire in his post here. I even went through the hassle of calling the store he got it discounted at (they had to apply it manually when he bought it two days ago) and got them to fax me the email from their system that shows Uncharted 2 being 50% off. It was sent to them on July 30th. I had that in hand when I went to BBV today but didn't need it since the promo was working today automatically.

Original post is below from before the edit above:
I'm pretty sure this is the cheapest I've seen Uncharted 2 for. Such an amazing game, definitely in my top 10 of all time. If you consider yourself a gamer and haven't played this yet, why are you still reading this and not on your way to BBV to try and snag a copy? :razz:

Since it's still a newer game there should be some stock out there, but of course YMMV as it's a used game purchase from BBV. Hopefully you can get in before the inevitable hoarding takes place. I don't have the receipt to post since I already own this one and didn't want to take it away from someone who wants to play it, so I left the copy on the shelf. I had them scan it though and it did come up at $29.99. I called another store out east as well to confirm the price before I posted this thread and they confirmed it at $29.99 as well.


Happy hunting!
