Looks like I'll be able to pick up Madden '12, Uncharted 3 and Arkham City for $30 each come Friday.
Same here - I got hooked on this formula playing Fallout 3.
I hate RPG games-particularly turn-based fighting, I find it moronic and tedious.
Ok, you just stand there and do nothing, while I let the 3rd guy in my party use a magic potion on you that drains -10 xp
But FO3 & Skyrim have RFG qualities, but with real action-based combat, which I've always liked.
So for I'm only on Lv 9 and haven't done a whole lot. I came across these woolly mammoths so my first instinct was to slay them, but then I got smashed down by some giant dude with a club.
Another time I spent 2 hours trying to fight my way out of Dragonsreach after being caught stealing some stupid amethyst.
If the goal of the game is not shiny ponyta, I don't play.
Finally picked up Arkham City ($30) and Uncharted 3 ($40). I hope to get to them in the next 2 weeks while I'm on vacay.
So I couldn't justify paying $60 for Skyrim since that isnt my style of game...
On Sunday, it drops to $40, along with a host of others at TRU...
But Google Offers is giving $10 for $20 vouchers.
Two credit cards and two gmail accts later, I bought a $40 ecard at TRU.
So on Sunday, I'll nab it for a whopping $20.
Just an fyi for those of you shopping new releases for the holiday.
Seems frugile of me but too good to pass up.
I don't mind spending on things I feel I'll get use out of. A lot of the guys that like Skyrim are WoW guys... Just sayin...
And my wife is half Jewish. We coupon shop. Fact of life. I've embraced it.
Hows about, I take the $20 I saved and pick you up a blue dolphin.
And that is some fine Couponing son, a fellow cheapskate like myself nearly welled up reading it.
LOL! Thank you.And that is some fine Couponing son, a fellow cheapskate like myself nearly welled up reading it.
Side note, I am still working on building up my speech to start investing in shops to unload my loot. I need to pass level 29 to get another chance to upgrade speech, so...Also, I have completely f00ked up anything in Markath as the guards wouldn't leave me alone even after completing the mine quest, so J'Zargo kept fighting with them. Deaths were unavoidable, but I can't kill the priniciples (Jarl, assistants etc), so I am at an impasse. Maybe it will straighten out when I reload.
I don't need a fence, I need a shop owner with enough money. If I invest, the Riverwood Trader will always have 10k.
J'Zargo was pretty good. He is now an ex-Khajiit.
I lost Lydia somewhere, some dungeon or cave somehwhere. I gave up waiting so I hired Jenassa in Whiterun, After what seemed like 10 game days later, I show up at my house at Breezehome in the middle of the night to unload stuff from several days of looting and stealing.
I head upstairs and Lydia is waiting for me like some stalker ex-girlfriend. Creeped me the **** out .
