Best Buy DotD for December 8th, 2011 [Update] [US]

By litepink, 5 years ago
Edit 1 - It appears once again that due to immense popularity (perhaps the coverage on our site was the culprit --wink wink), the deal is no longer valid, and in fact the game has been completely removed from the site. We'll keep you updated should anything change throughout the day.

Edit 2 - Back in stock, but for Store Pickup only. Grab it while you can.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. At least, that's what I think when I see the price of this particular game drop again and again. It's no secret that the latest Duke Nukem game faired poorly with game critics and players. The game's not even a half year old now, and it's been fairly easy to nab the game for $10-$15 in the past few months. For today only, Best Buy has this game priced for less than what you'd expect to pay for a fast food lunch.

Duke Nukem Forever - $29.99 $4.99

Reviewers haven't been kind to Duke, with a composite score of 49 on Metacritic. The TA community's view is about in line with this, with an average rating of 3.2 stars out of 5. Some though, have gone into the game knowing they are going to get a mediocre shooter with that patented Duke Nukem™ brand of humor. And for $5, you can't go wrong, right?

As always, this offer is valid online only. Some will honor the price in-store, but this is on a store-to-store basis. Currently, the item is backordered, which means it may take 1-2 weeks for the order to dispatch. Best Buy has free shipping on everything for the holidays if it’s any consolation. There is the Store Pickup option as well, which in this case would be a lot quicker, assuming you have a store in your vicinity.

Duke Nukem Forever has 50 achievements worth 1,664 TA Score.
