When debating to buy a game, I simply remember my long list of backlog games and realize that even if I moved it up on my list, by the time I'd get around to playing it, the game will be cheaper anyway.

This only doesn't work when a game has already hit rock bottom pricing.


I usually do the same. What made me change my mind here was that my backlog isn't tempting me at the moment, and I've been in the mood for a turn based strategy title. XCOM can fill the void until SimCity.

Um. its 19.99 at GMG Right now AND you can use the 20% off Code GMG20-P4DLK-FKYRS to get it for 16.00 even. And I'm unsure about this but you might still be able to claim the 30% off code for the DLC, least that was the deal yesterday.

As of The Farewell to February deal. I've only seen a handful of decent discounts:
GTA4:Complete + LA Noire Complete for http://www.amazon.com/Call-Duty-Black-Ops-Download/dp/B007Z3RN2I/ref=sr_1_1_title_0?s=videogames-download&ie=UTF8&qid=1361467178&sr=1-1" rel="external nofollow" title="www.amazon.com/Grand-theft-Auto-IV-Complete/dp/*********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
And the Assassin Creed games (1,2,Brotherhood,Revelations) are on decent discount. (4.99~11.99 per) otherwise didn't see much else.

Edit: [link=Black" title="http://www.amazon.com/Call-Duty-Black-Ops-Download/dp/B007Z3RN2I/ref=sr_1_1_title_0?s=videogames-download&ie=UTF8&qid=1361467178&sr=1-1">Black" rel="external nofollow">http://www.amazon.com/Call-Duty-Black-Ops-Download/dp/B007Z3RN2I/ref=sr_1_1_title_0?s=videogames-download&ie=UTF8&qid=1361467178&sr=1-1">Black Ops 2 is decent (34.99 before 25% off coupon) . Since COD games seem to NEVER go on sale.

BTW I just want to point out the 25% off seems to apply to Preorders also. So if theres a game coming out in a few weeks you're interested in and don't mind risking your money (A:CM anyone?) goodluck. I'm going to head over to the FF11 forums and give them a heads up since the new expansions are in there.

It seems I was wrong, but The new FFXI Preorder just has a hidden discount on it (-10 for Ultimate, -7.50 for Normal)

Can Anyone confirm this for me? The discount doesnt show up til the page you put in a coupon code.

Yeah, they're doing some other promotion starting tomorrow with Bioshock: Infinite pre-orders and I think they're trying to tie the carry-over benefits from that ($15 credit) into the Farewell to February sale. Which means the FTF base sale prices aren't especially aggressive.

Could anyone just check the FF11 preorder hidden discount for me to make sure I'm not nuts before I go post it on the FF11 boards? I just want to verify I'm not the only one seeing this.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AWEMODK/ref=s9_hps_bw_g367_ir11?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-5&pf_rd_r=15R8HP3F689TG9W4QSQJ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1494004962&pf_rd_i=979455011

It shows up for 39.99 but if you click preorder and get to the confirmation screen, for me its showing a 10 dollar promotion being auto applied. http://www4.picturepush.com/photo/a/12243562/img/12243562.png

Nope, just $39 for me. Maybe you have a promo credit from a previous purchase?

OK Now I'm confused, So I decided to just look around more of the preorders. It's autoapplying that CAGROCKS 25% off code to everything now, or something. I decided to go check out the New Tombraider and I click confirm and I get this.
I'm not sure if its a website coding error or if the CAGROCKS code actually works for preorders. Im so confused.

The only pre-order I've specifically heard it excluded from is Bioshock: Infinite.

CAGROCKS knocked $10 off that FF game you linked.

That would explain it. That was the 2nd game I checked (Bioshock:Inf) and it wasn't applying. So I assumed it didn't work. Meh.

Guys, I got the discount when I redid my Seekers expansion order (smiles at BeanX). Thanks guys! Now I got about $13.51 left in gift cards when I'd of had less than $5 left before. I'll save that for something else. :)

Sure, it's all sugarballs and sunshine in that FFXI thread now but just wait until the first non-US person tries to purchase it and starts raging that Amazon digital game sales only serves the United States.

How is Borderlands 2 a Zombie FPS? The Island of Dr. Ned was a BL1 expansion.

Dead Islands is kind of like Duke Nukem Forever, you almost have to give it away so people will play it. I was excited for it because of the trailer then played it and was so disappointed I put it down after 5 mins and never looked back.
Still putting in for the drawing reward because free is free

The difference between the two is that I actually finished Dead Island, and started another playthrough as a different character. You should download the "Director's Cut" mod, it makes a lot of improvements to the game and ups the difficulty.

Joph; the EU players are raging already b/c there is NO PREORDER for them yet for Seekers and Square Enix EU has been silent.

Don't ask me what's up with that but hopefully it'll get fixed in time for the release.

I didn't find it to my liking honestly, but I was super excited because of the trailer. I mean everyone has their own likes or dislikes, but I'm not the only one that wanted it to be 'great' because of the hype train and found it to be only 'pretty good'. Not saying your wrong, for your opinion, just saying mine differs.
