that's from a month ago, i'm talking about any other guides removed from the site this weekend that anybody has noticed that maybe a potential drop tomorrow or next month


The post on the 2nd page is one that I keep updated whenever something disappears on the site. I tried to get it on the 1st page when this topic was created, but by the time I noticed it, I was too late.

Vahn is often nice enough to provide us with a drop list, however for that drop you are referring to was the drop when many of us, including me were shut out from the guides. That list came out a couple of days early and instructed the managers it was priority to pull the guides, which really sucked cuz I am the only penny guide CAG in my area and the guide racks were overflowing before that drop.
The only thing for certain about guides being pulled from the website is there is a good possibility that it has/will be pennied.

Let's hope tomorrow that if there is a drop, these intercompany manager memos do not exist!

got
Valkyria Chronicle, Resistance 2 from GS.
Soul Calibur 4 (soft cover) from BB.

and went to other BB to grab Bioshock and Orange Box,
both rang up as penny but the assistance gave me the famous BS that two guide are not for sale and they were about to pull it out from the shelves to send it back to the manufacturer TODAY.
And then when I asked them I can't buy the guides even when I paid the full price, they said they will sell it for full price and tell the manufacturer that they sold it to a customer instead of returning it.
So I walked away with empty hand.

Lucky you managed to find VC so late. The stores over here were too diligent pulling penny guides off the shelf.

Yeah. I had a similar experience at BB. Found Bioshock at BB in Tualatin, OR and when they rang it up, they ran around and finally said they couldn't sell it to me because they were supposed to send it back. So I walked out empty handed.

If anyone can check the MGS4 LE guide if there is indeed a drop tomorrow that would be awesome. Store a little over an hour away has 11 of them.

Will delete this tomorrow to clear up some clutter in the thread.

Damnit >_<. I meant Monday. I was looking at the date on my computer and failed to realize that it was past midnight when I posted. Yeah... I thought it was Monday night and the guides dropped tomorrow.

I think there will be a drop because of the recent penny drop at Gamestop, since they usually penny out guides when its near the end of their life cycle.

With some pretty big name titles in there, I wonder (if there is a drop at BB) if they will treat this one like the last big drop. When almost all the stores removed their copies from shelves. That was a major crappy day.

Same here, when the early list came out my local BB pulled all guides and have do so ever since. Don't know if the early list caused my gold mine to pull guides or not. The two may or may not be related.

Here is to hoping that BB will not pull guides when there is another drop!

I'd suggest at least checking the ones that dropped at GS last week, Fallout 3 CE, Fable 2 LE and Mirror's Edge CE. Of course, checking as many as possible would be a good idea, though those three for certain.
