got FFXIII-2 Collector's Guide for free at BB. I tried to grab it the other night and the manager said no. The next day I was looking at iPads and she came up to me and handed it to me. Maybe I should have taken her to the back and shown appreciation.

I was at Gamestop buying a Gamecube and I asked the manager if he had any penny guides and he thought for a minute and then went to the back. Came back 10 seconds later with a Fallout: New Vegas guide and a MW3 guide. Rang up as a penny each but since I was paying with a card, he said that they'd actually lose money on it, so he just gave them to me. :D

I think I saw someone mention a guide being out of the system at WalMart. NFL blitz 03 for ps2 is also. Although NFL gameday 2004 ps2 is still $30.

My GS would not be as cool with that. Well, most of the employees there wouldn't be anyway. Congrats, that was pretty cool of them to do. I'll have to try this at some Gamestops in the near-future.

Well, there are 3 Gamestops in my area. One of them is wound tighter than a guitar string. The other one is not quite so bad. They're pretty by-the-books, but they're very personable. And the Gamestop I regularly go to, which is the one I've been going to since it was "EB Games", is very laid back. The employees aren't total tight-asses. The manager also knows me because I'm in there a lot. :roll:

There are around 3 or 4 in my area. The one closest to me just had to be the one with a bunch of blokes with their panties in a bunch. Wouldn't mind driving around to see if I can grab some goodies by asking though. Thanks for the heads up.

I snagged a collector's edition FF XII-2 guide today at Best Buy. I got them to sell me it for .99! I was pretty happy about that.

Amazon has the Diablo III paperback guide down to $3.29

Any thoughts from the PC dudes on if this guide is outdated? I am planning on getting the game for PS3 later this year, and was gonna get the guide now - assuming it is still relevant. Thanks in advance for any replies.

The DIII guide would be completely useless at this point. Pretty much everything is out of date now.

I guess buy it if you want the extra lore and artwork to look at, but the statistical data and item indexes are obsolete.

That is what I figured, I shall pass then, even at that price. Thanks man. Perhaps they will release an updated edition once the PS3/4 versions come out. Thanks again!

This would be great with Prime but if you can make it to your local BBY you'd save on shipping if you don't.

I live in Va and am very lucky to ever get penny guides since the BB treasure trove ended, but just started working in Ill recently and made a pretty good score at the GS here. Battlefield 3, 2 ff 13-2, Prototype 2, Ninja Gaiden, Game of Thrones and Silent Hill Downpour :applause:

not a guide, but the blops2 shirts pennied at GS. Also, a way of checking if there's a chance something pennied at GS: go to the GS.com stock check page for any item. Replace the sku in the link with the one from whatever you found in store. If the page loads it isn't pennied. If it kicks you back to the GS homepage, there's a decent chance it is pennied.

the sku is the six digit code to the left of the date the sticker was printed

Well it's just valuble mostly (Around $50 to some people), popular/award winning games with GOTY Hardcover guides tend to fetch pretty pennies. Rare because it's Valuble now. Can still be bought on the brady games site though, but regardless, this for free is nice.

Actually, you really can't buy it direct from Bradygames. I ordered one in January and it has been backordered ever since. I don't think I will be seeing my copy.

Has anyone else had an order filled in the last 4 months?

I too ordered one from the BradyGames site a month-ish ago. Still 'Processing'. I certainly hope it will be fulfilled, but I am not holding my breath.

thanks for sharing the interesting info about the red dead goty guide...now i am thinking about selling mine. my sealed copy has been on the bookshelf for over a year now.

i recently sold my sealed borderlands goty for $125 on amazon (bought with a 50% off coupon at best buy when i came across it randomly at the store). turns out the buyer lived less than 2 miles from me. too bad they wouldn't answer my emails because i was ready to deliver it myself to save shipping cost for both of us.

i have a bad habit of buying guides and never using them because it takes so long before i get to the game in my backlog. but it has allowed the rare guides to appreciate in value so i suppose it has worked out for me :)
