It never got played and is now up on Half for $7.99 (which would be kinda funny if it sold). But other games like Prince of Persia, Dark Sector, Dead to Rights, etc..the same bloody thing.

Yet...I'm still looking at Brink. *sigh* and I KNOW...if I go near a Bestbuy today I would pick it up.
Don't get rid of Dead to Rights. That game is fun as balls. And Brink sucks. Don't buy Brink and keep Dead to Rights. There.

I agree. Dead to Rights and Dark Sector are both way better than Brink. Don't fall in to the trap of thinking just because Brink is newer its better, its not.

I thought about getting Brink. Thought long and hard. Then I decided to put that $5 towards a Mexican chicken salad at Cafe Rio for lunch rather than eating Pot Roast in the cafeteria. I think I made the right choice.

If you have a Thorntons gas station in your area (IL, IN, KY, TN, OH), check for a display stand with 360 cards. 1600 point cards and 3 month Live cards are $5 off.

Haha, good one. I resisted successfully today. Thanks for the comments about Dead to Rights and Dark Sector. I'll leave them up through the holidays, it can pay for gifts and such. After the holidays if they don't sell I might pull them back, we'll see. I just have an unplayed list a mile long, that's all.

Amazon will have the Gears of War 3 pack as a lightning deal at 2:15 pacific

EDIT: Meh, 17.99. I was hoping for a BF-type price.

Red Faction Armaggedon on sale at Best Buy for $29.99. If you are subscribed to their Gamer Magazine, there's a $20 off for this game. Good deal. Bought it even though I really am not that familiar with the game.

Smoking deal? No, but you can get Batman: Arkham City for $39.99 (360, PS3) at Amazon if you missed out on the $30 point over BF, or if you need to grab a gift for someone. It's $30 for PC.

I know everyone probably has these already, but Gamestop is doing a B1G2 sale on Guitar Hero/Rock Band/DJ Hero stuff this Friday only.

Thanks for that. I've been looking for a drum set with cymbals and microphone for the Wii for a while now. I already have two guitars.

Forgot to mention that it's used only. I figured that was a known fact for any sale at Gamestop. Doubt you'll find any instruments in this deal.

I hope they honor the deal. The copy of Alice: Madness Returns that I ordered 2 weeks ago from them for $20 shipped is still listed as back-ordered.

I got mine already, so I suspect it's just an honest case of being backordered.

Dang it, I missed it. Would have done that in a heartbeat. If you bring up the page right now, it's Saint's Row 3 on all platforms for $29.99. (which is still pretty awesome)

Edit: I bit on Saint's Row 3. Damn that LMFAO music and commercial.

I bit on SR3 last week when it was 39.99 with with the B2G1 deal going on. I bought 3 copies, and resold 2 of them, keeping my copy for a net cost of about $6.39

I can't believe I bought the regular version for full price with $30 coupon at Kmart on launch week. No more.

Yeah, crazy prices today at the Bestbuy outlet stuff. Told myself I really shouldn't buy anymore stuff with the recent Thanksgiving haul, and a backlog so deep that I couldn't even get through if I had months off from work. The Bestbuy DOTD is def something to keep an eye on- i've snagged AC Brotherhood, and now Crysis 2 from there for $10
