I dubbed the term "gamestop hot" a few years ago for the women you describe.


The newest gamestop around my area has a pretty hot red head that works there. THe other two stores, not so much.

Scottsdale, AZ. and they completely carried on their conversation about Mass Effect 3 story/gameplay while i stood there just soaking it in. Im pretty sure i'd get the same feeling going to a strip club.


I might have to make the drive from Tucson... lol
i traded in B:AC and price still holding! yay. Not going nuts but glad i was able to trade in and get a mint-used copy of Skyrim. the Gamestop clerk was nice enough to even search through the other used copies to make sure mine came with the map so I'm not missing anything. Kudos to him sir.

This will be a helpful post:

Batman: AC - $23 (:360: and :ps3:)

:roll:

At least I'm finally out of @Gamer coupons--never before have I bought then traded more than 5 copies of the same game within the same week...and it will probably (read: hopefully) never happen again. :drool:

Having $130 in GS credit is nice, though. :D

Based on not banning folks for trading in more than two of the same items per console. Folks around here have been banned for less. Their rants are kinda funny too.


A lot of the bans are actually initiated by a local manager. If an employee transforms into a JR detective and looks up the PUR then yep you're cooked.

He's well known in my area, he lives not far from me. Every manager up to the DM knows him by name, especially near where he lives.

Agreed.

I've never flipped so many of the same game to GS in a week out of fear of ban. The credit is nice. I'm within striking distance of the vita. Probably won't spend it on that though, but nice to have the option.

I'm actually looking to flip back to BB since my laptop kicked the bucket. Haven't found a decent one yet.

Traded 2 Batmans today... Instead of the 30% boost for preordering res evil raccoon city, it gave me a $5 bump on both games. I have no idea. It cost me a little, but the dude doing the trade was new and I had already flustered him with the fat Xbox trade, PUR renewal, sealed trade games (the manager that I'm friends with was there and had ok'd it, but the new dude didn't know). It was a bit of a fiasco.

PSP-1000 and the GO are both $20. I asked the other day when trading in batman. With the bonus trade in, you get a whopping $45 for each! Not even worth your trip to sears clearance. :)

Haha I figured people who know the reason I was asking

According to the BB website the value there is $70, figured it would be closer at gamestop but goddamn that crappy.

Do you think GS is going to drop the TIV on Batman? I mean at this point they have to be swimming in those things.

So what happens when they ban someone? Do they let them know when they are trading in? What happens to the credit they accumulated?

Asking because I saw the same guy at 2 different gamestops trading in 2-3 copies of Batman AC. I was hunting down a used MGS 3D.

Ask Iamthecheapestgamer or Velo214, those are the two CAG's that post the most I've seen that have been banned by a Gamestop.

I have a question. If I wanted to trade in some games and leave the credit on my card for future use Will I still get the percentage trade in bonus when I apply it to a new release game?? For example. They're offering 30% bonus towards the purchase of ME3

Once it's on your card, no more bonuses towards credit will apply. Those promos are for trading in games on the same transaction as the purchase.

Updated lists and database. The sheer number of B:AC at my local stores is just mind boggling. Even with the local DM not accepting trades of the game, each store is overloaded. Three stores have to have around 50 copies per system at least. That's just the ones they have out on the shelves, makes me wonder how many they may have behind the counter or in the back.

In the next 10 minutes or so I'm going to be rolling over to a new thread. This one got much larger than I normally like it to get. Will update this post or post the last item in the thread with the link to the new one.
