1  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / EB Games after Christmas Sale on: December 24, 2004, 05:47:35 PM
Thanks for the tip! I was getting ready to order some preplayed online for 25% off. I'd much rather do it in person.


This is in store right??

Just realized I could have put this in my previous post, sorry.

$20 at Best Buy and from what I've read about it in the reviews its a steal at that price.


It might be, except that nobody else bought it, and the people that did buy it aren't playing it.

The demo was fun, but everything I hear from people that picked up the full games says that there's never more than a small handfull of people playing online.


No ones playing it online??? I tried the demo when it came out and I had no problem finding full games.  Wonder what happened..  Its still supposed to have a very good single player portion of the game and its averaging 81% on gamerankings.com so it still may be worth checking out.

If you didn't see this weeks store ads I thought this was a great deal.  Its the console versions not the crappy pc version  :wink:

Also Best Buy had Dragon Ball Z Budakai 3 for $29.99. Good luck finding this one. I got the last one at my local store for my son 2 days ago.

I think in general a lot of people have left for greener pastures while the original CG people and a few GG people continue to hang out  :?   Some of it may be the number of people leaving for holiday vacations (and those of us playing WoW and EQ2 instead of browsing smile)  .


Im thinking you may be right.  Looking back at the threads I notice a couple posts each day until recently.  

Im a transient myself from Gone Gold  :wink:

Well hope it picks back up after the holidays.  I go to other forums to see deals but I always found/find GG and CC easier to scan through.

14  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Maximum distance Best Buy will pricematch ad??? on: December 08, 2004, 12:24:36 PM
For some odd reason CompUsa puts a flyer in my Sunday paper. Don't get me wrong I love it!  However the nearest store is almost 2 hours away.  The nearest Best Buy is 15  minutes.  Will Best Buy pricematch CompUsas ad considering they are technically not really a local competitor????

I was interested Kohan 2 this week for $20 at Comp.
15  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / I got Battle For Middle Earth for only $20! on: December 08, 2004, 12:16:26 PM
Don't rub it in dude.  Im deeply saddened by this. Here's my sad tale.  frown

:wink:

I did the same but about a month ago one of these game deal forums had a thread for this game at I believe Amazon and or Target for $10.  I was able to successfully place the order so I canceled my $20 Amazon order.  Shortly after canceling I received an email from Amazon/Target stating it was a price mistake and they were canceling the $10 BfME orders  :cry:

But all is not lost :!:  For some crazy reason Best Buy recently gave me a huge chunck of reward points and I was sent a coupon for $20 off :!:   I'll be heading to Best Buy today and picking up the game for $19.99. Now the question is are we still able to use the $5 off coupon from the Best Buy gift cards on software:?:   :wink:
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Go get Sid Meiers Pirates! right now! Its totally worth it on: December 03, 2004, 06:15:55 PM

I don't share your enthusiasm for this game. I played it last night, and was amazed at how simple and easy it was. It's like a kid's game. There is no challenge.
*cough* Try upping the difficulty a bit. smile

That said, it never (IMHO) gets overly difficult,

s


Oh hell I loaded and played for 4 hours straight thinking the same thing. It was way to easy for a SID Meier game. I didn't even realize it had a difficulty game.  It still had me hooked thought and I enjoyed the S out of it smile  Great game IMHO. Nice change after all the FPSers I've played over the past 2 years.

Okay I admit it.  I am actually more excited about Pirates than I was about Half-Life 2.  I will still end up getting H2 at some point but for some reason just can't do it right now.

Now Pirates is another story.  I put almost as much time into that as I did with Civ1 or Civ2.
Pig


Your not the only one :!:   At least Pirates won't have require "STEAM" :x  to install.  I'll happily give my money to Firaxis. Valve won't see another dime.
18  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Half-Life 2 Compusa 2003 order. What your latests status? on: November 16, 2004, 10:31:39 PM
Compusa. those F'ers!  Now my order number doesn't even show up under my account after I emailed them yesterday for an update.  It appears they just decided not to honor the preorder and canceled the order and then not tell me they did.  finger
19  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Half-Life 2 Compusa 2003 order. What your latests status? on: November 15, 2004, 10:16:33 PM
Is there by chance anyone else reading this that got in on the Half-Life 2 deal at CompUsa back in 2003 when it was still believed it would be released Sept 19 2003?  

Basically if you preordered HL2 was $42 shipped.  I checked my order status and it stated "no receipt found"??????? If I check my account info however it shows the order but I can't get any further info.  I emailed Compusa and still waiting a response. Anyone else getting different results?

Does anyone know how quick Compusa ships their orders?
20  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Thief: Deadly Shadows for PC $19.99 @ EB on: November 12, 2004, 04:18:56 PM
Make sure you grab the textures this dude created for it. (see address below) .  The developers ignored the pc's superior graphic power and used the same graphics for all systems.
