I waited last year and I glad I did.

Same here.  Last year was the first time since the early 90s I did not buy Madden.

Reminder......I think this is the last day for the Rockstar Pass on sale ($10).  Includes all past and future DLC.

Nicholson Electroplating Case comes out tomorrow.

Even if you do not own the game but think you are buying it in the future, I would buy the Pass now.

Don't bad things usually happen to those on the cover?  If so wouldn't one want Vicks to win?

Vick was on the 2004 cover.  Look what happened to him after that.

AssCreed 2 has a good story so I would start there.

AssCreed 1 seemed more like a tech demo.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

this might be better suited for the PC forums though.

You never know where this might be headed.  Retailers hold an extreme amount of influence over publishers and hardware manufacturers.  There might be a day where there is an Impulse portal via Xbox Live or PS3 whatevertheyhave.
182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tiger Woods 12: The Masters on: March 31, 2011, 03:21:01 PM
It looks like it is 4000 points to buy both the Eagle Pack and the Birdie Pack, which combined includes all of the DLC courses.  So for an extra $40-50 (if you bought points on sale) you have the "full" game.

Edit to add:  Bethpage and Turnberry are missing at the moment.  I guess they were exclusives to the PS3 and 360.

If you don't need color, I wholeheartedly recommend Brother laser printers. They kept it simple, and it works a treat. Lasts forever, too. Saves you a ton of money not having to buy ink cartridges every month.

This.  Plus toner carts are only $17 shipped when Meritline has them for sale (which is frequently).

New nVidia beta drivers were released today.  Among the release notes:

Quote from: nVidia.com

GeForce GTX 580:

        Up to 516% in Dragon Age 2 (SLI 2560x1600 8xAA/16xAF Very High, SSAO on)
        Up to 326% in Dragon Age 2 (1920x1200 8xAA/16xAF Very High, SSAO on)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti:

        Up to 461% in Dragon Age 2 (SLI 1920x1200 8xAA/16xAF, Very High)
        Up to 241% in Dragon Age 2 (1920x1200 4xAA/16xAF, Very High)


-Autistic Angel

LOL....that's pretty fucked up if you think about it.

Actually DA2's performance made me ditch my GTX460 and pick up a 6950 (modded to a 6970).  The ATI card blew away my 6 month old 460.

Quote from: Misguided on March 29, 2011, 07:41:19 PM

Uhm, no. First off those are in the defective, not regular inventory, and any mass movement of those back and forth would raise red flags. Secondly, charging that fee reduces the credit you get on your trades and leaves you less to spend, neither of which are in the store's best interest. They have machines in Texas at the corporate office that resurface dozens of discs at a time.

they refinish their preowned DVD's. I can't tell you how many times I've declined a preowned game at EB because the quality of the DVD was utter crap.

I've been charged a refinishing fee on some of the games I've traded in at GS.  I seriously doubt they ever get refinished.  I see it as a way to reduce your trade-in value.

Of course it is in their best interest.  Lower my trade-in value via "refinishing fees" means I now have to pony up extra cash for whatever I'm buying.

That has never happened to me.  Even if I got a DS game with a save file on it, you erase it and away you go.  It isn't like the game plays worse because someone played it. 

If that's the case, why not charge full price for every "used" game?

amazon for life. i havent paid full price for a game in years. every game i buy has credit.
99 cent release day delivery too.

This.  I haven't bought a new release from GS in years.

Amazon:

1. Usually cheaper prices for new games (i.e. $57 vs $60)
2. Usually a $10 or $20 credit
3. Free release date shipping (with Prime)
4. No tax

Why in the hell should I shop at GS?

Forgive me for asking....but does Valve have a 1-800 number for customer service?  If they do not, it is completely absurd that a company with hundreds of millions in revenue does not have a live support line.  That is completely unacceptable and beyond comprehension.
