Titanfall 2’s Standard and Deluxe editions (PS4/Xbox One) are both on sale for $24.99 (GCU: $19.99) as Best Buy’s Deal of the Day.
Titanfall 2 was only released on October 28th, 2016, quite recent. It continues the trend of last Holiday season’s game dropping in price rapidly. Titanfall 2’s Deluxe Edition originally retailed for $79.99, so it’s an immense drop. It’s unclear why both the standard and deluxe editions are on sale for the same price and one (standard edition) isn’t lower than the other. Best Buy might be trying to clear stock.
While Titanfall 2 didn’t set the world on fire or create hype the way the first one was suppose to turn the genre upside down, it was a well reviewed game. It averaged 89%/87% (PS4/Xbox One) on Metacritic. User reviews on the site were pretty similar averaging an 8.4/8.1 (PS4/Xbox One). Meaning there wasn’t too much mainstream review inflation, it stayed consistent.
Titanfall 2 Resale Value: Sticker Price
It’s a domestic born US made game by a relatively new studio published by EA. It’s unlikely to hold resale value past the original sticker price, though the Deluxe Edition may go up in coming years. Titanfall 2 likely had a large print run as most games from EA do, EA games typically are heavily printed and discounted. Though a bit less than say a Ubisoft game. This is not a game deal made for hoarding with future ambitions. This is a game deal for gamers looking to try out the new Titanfall or get into the series for the first time.
Titanfall 2 Rarity: Common
It’s not going to be too rare of a game. You don’t have to keep it sealed (unless you want to), chances are it will be available for years to come, no resellers needed. It’s unlikely you’ll have to scour Ebay to find someone selling a new copy of Titanfall 2.
Difference between Titanfall 2 – Standard and Deluxe Editions:
The difference between the two versions of Titanfall 2 appear mostly superficial. Skins for the Titans themselves. Here is the official description:
“Deluxe Edition Content
Stand out on the battlefield with Prime upgrades for Ion & Scorch, available this December. Beyond skin colors, these modifications upgrade the physical look of your Titan, change the sound effects and even offer up devastating new executions. On day one, customize every Titan with instant access to exclusive Excalibur Chrome Warpaints and Thunderbird Nose Arts. The Splinter Ocean and Quantum Ocean Camos are also included and are ready to be applied to every Titan, Pilot, and weapon in the game. Get all this content when you purchase the Titanfall 2 Deluxe Edition.
Prime Titan customization for Scorch
Prime Titan customization for Ion
Thunderbird Nose Arts for each Titan
Excalibur Chrome Warpaints for each Titan
Splinter Ocean Camo applicable to every Titan, Pilot and Weapon

Gold Caliburn Callsign”
Final Game Deal Review: Buy if you’re a fps fan, not for collection or resale purposes.

Dragon Ball Super had Goku finally becoming a Super Saiyan God just in time to spar with Lord Beerus. Goku himself, not fully aware of his potential yet.
It finally happened, Goku joined the ranks of the divine and the celestial. A real, legit Super Saiyan God. All it took was six saiyans with pure hearts joining hands together to transfer their powers to one. Goku’s hair turned a shade of hot pink for the occasion, as no transformation is complete without a new hairstyle. Now Goku appears more enthusiastic about the thrill of a new challenge than the Earth’s well being necessarily. Piccolo even alludes to this when he tells Goku to be careful not to make them into collateral damage after an inadvertent Kamehameha blast.
Meanwhile, Gohan instinctively knows his father’s power will rise with every minute the battle continues. Despite Goku not landing a single hit just like before. Then the moment arrives… Gohan is proven right.
For the first time, Goku manages to land a few hits on Beerus and even blocks incoming attacks. His fighting carefree rather than focused, almost like he just opened up a shiny new toy. Neither Goku or Beerus appear to be taking the battle seriously yet, briefly sparring in what Beerus calls preliminary tests. In an uncharacteristic Vegeta moment, he smirks when Goku actually grazes and hits Beerus on the cheek. It seems his envy is waning as a past Vegeta would be furious over his rival becoming stronger.
Bulma takes the gang up in her flying ship to watch the fight as saiyans, nameks, androids, and earthlings look more mortal than ever before. As Whis explains, the reason they can’t sense Goku any longer is because that’s a mortal trait. Now that Goku has joined the divine as a Super Saiyan God, he is on a whole different level. King Kai is shown running around his planet in a frenzy troubled of this new fact, seeing it as a problem rather than victory. For reasons not yet known, King Kai did not want any of this to happen.
Dragon Ball Super S01E11 Trailer
On tonight’s Dragon Ball Super on Toonami, Beerus continues to prod Goku to reveal more and more of his power. Old kai discusses Beerus toying with Goku in order to have someone to fight with all of his might. Just to inevitably crush the challenger in theory. Old kai explains Beerus is doing this for his own amusement, for fun rather than a serious purpose. Meanwhile, Goku’s carefree attitude with his Super Saiyan God form will either lead Beerus off-guard or a decisive loss at the hands of Beerus. Either way the Earth is in danger with two mighty unrelenting deity warriors fighting at full power.

Dragon Ball Super sees the return of Shenron tonight as Goku and gang call up their last wildcard to prevent Lord Beerus from destroying Earth.
It was an epic game of rock-paper-scissors on last week’s Dragon Ball Super with the Earth’s fate hanging in the balance. Lord Beerus decided to play a cowering Oolong out of all choices for the ultimate game of random chance. After two rounds ended in a tie with both sides throwing scissors Beerus was growing ever impatient. Piccolo felt the ties were only worsening Beerus’ mood and would end up in Earth’s destruction anyway. Then it happened Oolong threw another pair of scissors only to lose to Beerus’ rock breaking the tie to the surreal shock for everybody on board the cruise-liner.
Vegeta had given everything he had in Super Saiyan form to start the episode causing Beerus to use close to 10% of his power but falling all the same. Krillin asked Piccolo if they all tried to fight back together if they could overpower Beerus only to be shot down, told “It would be no use”. As everyone prepared for imminent destruction at the hands of Beerus, none other than Goku showed up.
He asked Beerus calmly if he could give them a bit more time to discover this Super Saiyan God and that he knew a way. Beerus relented, citing if he woke from his nap after so long he could wait a bit longer. The ace in the hole Goku spoke of was the Dragon Balls Goku believed to be on board. Now the Earth and the entire solar system’s destiny lies in Shenron.
Dragon Ball Super S01E09 Trailer
Tonight’s Dragon Ball Super has dire implications for all of Earth’s inhabitants. Goku and gang will call up the dragon Shenron with the Dragon Balls to make a wish. However, it seems even Shenron trembles at the sight of Lord Beerus the destroyer. Piccolo plainly states “We’re doomed” in the preview. If Shenron cannot bring forth the Super Saiyan God in the present can he make a promise for the future?
Find out on tonight’s Dragon Ball Super airing at 8:30 pm ET on Cartoon Network’s Toonami block!
Remember to check out last week’s Dragon Ball Super Preview and catch up on the latest!
