#14158084 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

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.

So I could possibly put that towards a RDR2 Pro Bundle and 5% off with Red Card. Hmmmmm

I just wanted to say that I originally read this as "R2D2 Pro Bundle" and I was trying to figure out what Star Wars related bundle there was that I hadn't heard about.

 

I think I've been at work too long today. :-P

Posted by argyle on 12 November 2018 - 09:10 AM

And what's their functionality? How many more amiibos and trading cards are being released? When is the game being released? Do you buy toilet paper a year in advance?

No, but then again I also don't tell other people they should kick themselves for buying things. I tend not to worry what other ppl spend their money on. Try it, you'll live longer.

Posted by argyle on 12 November 2018 - 04:37 AM

You should be kicking yourself for buying any of them at all. Amiibo Festival is pure trash, and they barely add anything worthwhile to Welcome Amiibo.

You realize that once they finally release an Animal Crossing game for the Switch that those will work with it, right?

By repacked do you mean they physically took the actual console out of the console box and repacked it, or do you mean they took the console box out of the shipping box and put it in a new shipping box?

It wasn't sent in the Sony shipping box. Not a big deal at all IMO, esp. since mine still arrived in perfect condition. 

 

If it had been from Amazon, they would have sent it in a bubble mailer.

Posted by argyle on 14 September 2018 - 03:20 AM

Actually it’s $25. Anyways Pro day doesn’t look good to me at all considering you can get the majority of these cheaper at Amazon/BB. Oh well didn’t expect much anyways.

No, it's $30 - the link to the print ad is showing May's Pro Day ad. 

 

I think it's gonna be Dead Cells & The Surge for me. Also, in store it's going to be b1g2 on all clearance collectables (I got a peak at the ad earlier today).

I skimmed through the pages after this comment and didn't see any replies, but was wondering if anyone heard this from any other sources?

I just checked mine, there's no number on the box that corresponds with the collector # on the front of my system.

Looks like we've moved into the "it's not so great anyway / ppl just want to scalp it / what's with these losers that haven't been here as long as me" phase of the thread - time to move on.

wonder if the Division Hat pre-order bonus at gamestop can be bought separately, so I can use GCU for the steelbook gold at BestBuy.
