#14238476 Black Friday 2019 Video Game Deals - Master Thread, Spreadsheet, and General...

Posted by argyle on 30 November 2019 - 02:17 PM

I haven't seen this asked, but is Amazon doing their annual % off of a book purchase coupon this year? Was hoping to preorder that Cyberpunk guide with it.

I can't believe I sat up for this. Inside, really? A lamer version of a game that's readily available already? 

 

Remind me to ignore iam8bit's "surprise" announcements from now on. :roll:




#14236836 Target Black Friday 2019 Ad Deals

Posted by argyle on 28 November 2019 - 08:27 AM

Thank you Gamestop for being out of stock on that $20 Indivisible. Heck, Target even has the Switch preorder for $15. :-P




#14236539 Target Black Friday 2019 Ad Deals

Posted by argyle on 28 November 2019 - 03:15 AM

They don't, Red card is still the clear winner. Circle is for us plebs that refuse to take on yet another credit card lol.

 

However, I've been shopping at Target so often now I probably really should get on board since there's actual value there for me.

It doesn't make any sense not to have a Red Card *debit* card if you shop at Target a lot.

Posted by argyle on 07 November 2019 - 02:21 PM

DMC V for $15 and Impossible Lair for $20 are the 2 that jump out at me. Gonna be extra-picky which games I grab this year - remember, it's not a deal if it just sits on the shelf & the price ends up dropping even lower before you get around to playing it.

Another fun thing I just noticed, unless I'm missing something the Wishlist is now gone. I used to use that to watch mainly collectibles I was interested in to see if/when they dropped in price. I had a ton of stuff on mine, and can't possibly remember what all of it was.

My Darksiders III: Apocalypse Edition just arrived and it's a dinger. Looks like it was never opened, and the content were packaged well enough that the dings didn't do any damage to the contents. Very happy with this one. :)

I used to buy tons of games like this, so I'm curious to ask, do you think you'll ever play those?

 

I'm still sitting on BF2016 games, some are still sealed. Interesting too is those same games I bought two years ago on BF were cheaper then too.

Sure - I may not finish them all, but I'm past the point where I feel like I have to finish every single game I own. I'll get my $10-$15 out of them, no doubt.

Appreciate the input, thanks! That's kinda why I was looking into Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Might just grab it at $27 and rely on extended holiday returns in case it goes on sale cheaper between now and January.

FWIW, my rule of thumb is to pass on anything I'm not planning on playing right away unless it's a price that realistically won't go any lower ($10 or less) or something that most likely had a lower print run (I've picked up Shining Resonance Refrain & Fire Pro Wrestling World for this reason). Odds are VERY good AC Odyssey will be cheaper by the time you're ready for it.

It's odd, this is one of the few times I don't agree with reviews. I've been too busy playing to read the write-ups, but I see the scores being handed out and IDK what game they're playing but clearly they're doing so alone, or at least that's all I can imagine. Game is fun with friends; doesn't change the FO formula at all, just adds MP into the mix and I've had nothing but fun with it. For all its bugs, we've run into one quest we couldn't complete so far (that was literally patched this morning) and servers are very stable (had like 2 server crashes in maybe 80 hours played?). That's impressive given the number of MMO's I've played (and the fact this is Bethesda we're talking about here).

 

Bottom line: if it was an unplayable mess, I could see the scores. I think people are pissed it's an online only game and they want their precious SP game. I want the next ES game to be exactly like this in some form because the formula works a hell of a lot better than an MMO. Couldn't recommend this game more if you have friends that don't flake on you and will grind to 50.

 

Oh and they just had server maintenance this morning, so I'm sure they're clearing up a few issues lingering from beta.

I completely agree. I was ready to cancel my preorder based on the early bad buzz, but my wife and I played the beta first and loved it. That's carried on to the full game as well, had another friend of ours join us this weekend and we all had a blast. I haven't read the reviews yet, but I agree with you in that if you have someone to play it with and like previous Fallouts, you'll most likely have a great time.

Same. Was more interested to see if they were going to put skyrim switch edition on sale to compete with Walmart. I would've rather just buy it now for $35 and be done looking for it lol.

I know I'm repeating myself, but this thread is so massive posts get eaten and I really want people to see this.

 

Physical Starlink is a massive rip-off, even at sale prices. The digital version DOES NOT REQUIRE THE TOYS, and it gives you nearly all of the ships/pilots/weapons that you would otherwise have to buy the expensive toys to get! Don't buy the physical Starlink guys!

 

DO buy the digital version, because the game is awesome - it is what No Man's Sky was supposed to have been. 

 

The Starter Packs for PS4 and Xbox One include: 
Starlink: Battle for Atlas
Controller Mount
Zenith Starship
Mason Rana 
Flamethrower Weapon 
Frost Barrage Weapon 
Shredder Weapon
 
The Starter Pack for Nintendo Switch includes:
Starlink: Battle for Atlas
Joycon Mount
Arwing Starship 
Fox McCloud and exclusive Star Fox missions
Mason Rana
Flamethrower Weapon 
Frost Barrage Weapon
Digital Zenith Starship
Digital Shredder Weapon
 
The Digital Starter Packs include: 
Starlink: Battle for Atlas
4 Starships (Zenith, Pulse, Lance, Neptune)
6 Pilots (Mason, Chase, Levi, Razor, Hunter, Judge)
12 Weapons (Shredder, Flamethrower, Frost Barrage, Levitator, Volcano, Imploder, Iron Fist, Freeze Ray Mk.2, Crusher, Shredder Mk.2, Shockwave, and Gauss Gun Mk.2) 
The Nintendo Switch Digital Starter Pack also includes pilot Fox McCloud, exclusive Star Fox missions, and the Arwing starship

 

 

And the digital deluxe version includes *everything*. You will definitely want the extras, especially the weapons. This is a massive price difference. 

 

This has been a public service announcement. :)

Tower?
There was a Walmart near me that had a room full of orange lockers for store pickup, but have since blocked it off.

You just scan the barcode on your phone, enter a little info and the locker pops open that has your item (or if it's something large, someone will bring it to you). MUCH better than standing in the back of the store looking for an employee to actually help you, which is what I had to do in the past every time I picked up something from them.
