    TRU is such a crapshoot. A few years ago I took advantage of a $10 clearance and found four awesome games and a 360 (back when the 360 launched and was stupidly rare). And there was the launch discount on Mario Galaxy. But other than that, it's been failure after failure.

    I could really use some Wii points cards, but I don't have it in me to enter the half-empty TRU game section again.

    Just though I'd point out that their online store seems to be fixing some of the issues such as No More Heroes not working and various other titles that weren't weren't working. Also Fallout 3 collector's edition seems to have gotten included in the deal.

    How is Fallout 3 Collector's Edition part of the deal? Does the B2G1 Free deal work on pre-orders as well?

    Man I need some help. Whats everyone getting with the Buy 1 Get 1? I'm so conflicted.

    Cash flow is low, so I'm trying to find older stuff I've missed, or just stuff that priced awesomely. I also think my brain looks at this sale as an excuse to but stuff that is more than likely crap.

    My cart so far has consisted of:

    Viva Pinata 2 (360)
    Samba De Amigo (Wii)
    No More Heroes (Wii)
    CrossworDS (DS)
    deBlob (Wii)

    I feel like deBlob will come down in price eventually (like NMH has), so I figued I'd wait on it. And Samba seems to be terrible, dispite how badly I want it to be awesome. I just got a DS 2 weeks ago, and have picked up all 3 phoenix wrights, sonic rush, trauma center and brain age to keep me busy -- so I don't NEED a DS game, but if there's any good ones I'm missing, I'd be open to trying it.

    These sales are so damn impossible for people like me who feel like this is a life and death decision.

    I would actually be more interested in a buy 2 Halo figures get one free sale, because that's much more within my price limit these days. I be all sorts of strapped for cash.

    So yeah, every TRU I went to was cleared out of Wii Points cards, so either eBay asshole scalpers got to them or the R-Zone people pulled stock. :(

    I'm going to scope out this week to see if any of the TRUs by me get Sam & Max for Wii, but otherwise I might skip out entirely on the sale.

    This is also my question. I planned on doing the buy a filler game and return it for Fallout 3, but if I can skip that and just buy fallout 3 I'd love to do that.

    I want to get
    Dead Space
    Mercenaries 2
    Fallout 3

    Edit: I found my own answer. It doesn't include preorders, says so right on the website

    For some crazy reason, if you check the product listing:
    http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3245332

    There is a Buy 2 Get 1 Free icon on the bottom of the page meaning it is eligible for the sale.

    I got there 10 minutes after opening and there were only two, but they were still locked up, so they didn't start with much. I got one of them. I know that my friends that worked there took some for themselves, though.

    It was really strange, too—one of the ones I went to had like 15 copies of Wii Fit just sitting out in the middle of the aisle, but Wii Points cards? "Nope, had a big run, we're all sold out!"

    Well, to be fair, we've been out for MONTHS. I definitely wanted to take advantage of that, but I just picked up a Classic Controller instead.

    And I pushed at my store to do PC games just because I want the goddamned shelves cleared for me to put out the millions of freight pieces sitting in the game closets.

    That means at my store, yes, Spore is B2G1. No, I won't tell you where I work. I will say, though, that if you put up enough of a fuss, they will probably accommodate you.

    Gah, they pushed back Socom to the 17th, NHL is out of stock online, and Saints Row 2 hasn't been updated to available yet, so my diabolical plan is falling through.

    Man, the TRU website lists Dead Space as a 10/20 ship date. If that's true, then fuck them. I'll just go buy it from someone else and save myself the trouble of digging through their selection of leftovers to find other games I don't already own and might want.
