pretty sure this forum's gifts would just devolve into steam games to people instead of cool/funny tangible things, but if enough people sign up before like thanksgiving or something, I'm down to give stupid poo poo to a stranger.

I, too, like waiting months on top of paying shipping fees

alls im saying is steam games arent really a neat/interesting way to handle secret santa imo. it should be stupid action figures and old rare gaming garbage going to your fellow gamers
otherwise, it'll end up like that really gay steam gifting thread that was spammed across the forums a couple years ago

I agree sending someone a steam game is far less exciting.

8's not a bad one but 9 was a very welcome change of direction at the time.

I was one of those people who poo poo on 8 a lot but I've actually been tempted to go back and play it to see if my making GBS threads was justified. The parts I remember liking I REALLY liked but iirc the junctioning system and magic systems were hosed.

The Xenoblade copies at gamestop were new copies they opened to jack up the price.

They're still around 40 bucks used.

I bought one a month or two ago.
The disc was brand new, even had the little code thing included for Club Nintendo.

You're not gonna get any discounts on the PS4 this season, but bundles with pack-in games will probably be aplenty.

I know I'm not the only one waiting/eager to pick-up a Wii-U. Ebay is going to be having a Cyber Monday deal:

quote:

On Cyber Monday, eBay will offer the 32 GB Deluxe Wii U with a copy of Nintendo Land and Super Smash Bros. This bundle will retail for $250.
http://wiiudaily.com/2014/11/wii-u-ebay-deal/

Which is way better than the Best Buy bundle since all it lacks is DK:TF (which I really want but I bet it can be had for <$30). I really hope I can snag it but I bet they'll only have like 10 copies and they'll get sold right away.

e: nevermind, actually I checked another link and it's some Skylander + Super Smash Bundle. Doesn't seem as good so back to the Best Buy one I think

If you're in the UK the Nintendo UK store is offering a free game if you get a 3DS and either Smash or Pokemon ORAS.

That includes bundles, so I'm getting my fiancée a 2DS+Pokemon Omega Ruby bundle, with a free copy of either Kirby Triple Deluxe or Zelda: ALBW

for nintendo products, if it's too good to be true, it probably is
poo poo maintains its value, and nobody's gonna sell a $50 controller that's still in demand for $20 if it's genuine

Pretty sure the lack of special cards, flash sales and poo poo is mostly because it's a boring Fall Sale and not one of the COOL BIG SALEZ like Summer/Christmas. I expect a special thing tomorrow for Black Friday though.
