When was the last time you tried going in? Maybe you could just walk in like no big deal and they wouldn't bother. Just avoid drawing attention to yourself. I had a similar situation. I just waited for awhile and then one day walked in and started shopping. They never said a word.

The one store is the local DM's home store where he has his office and I have a terrible track record with going in there the exact day he happens to be in the office in the back.:rofl:

Unfortunately that's the store I remember having the first Midway Arcade Treasures at in good shape and complete. Not to mention that's the store that they dumped all of the older gen stuff like PS1 titles at when they consolidated everything into one place a few years ago.

The other two are staffed by the same people who have been there forever and seem to get a lot of hours or I've tried for pennied items(like the DC Universe Online CE for PC a while ago) at since my ban. :lol:

So yeah, unless I get someone else to go in for me I'm pretty well fucked.:-#

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Great day the last few days.

Over the weekend got these:

B2G2:

Zone of the Enders
Guilty Gear X2
Viewtiful Joe
Viewtiful Joe 2

Maximo Ghosts to Glory
Front Mission 4
Shinobi
R Type Final

5 for $1.00
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Went back today to two different stores. Got 10 games B2G2 (I know I could have gotten 2 more free... didn't realize until I was back home... they had the games all behind the counter, no print out, had to just say what I wanted and had such a big stack that I had a hard time keeping track...). Also got 21 on the 10 for $1.00. One I got for free and not as part of this, again, just a matter of mixing up the numbers...

Buy 2 Get 2:

Yakuza
Soul Calibur 2
Rise of the Kasai
The Bouncer

Legacy of Kain Soul Reaver 2
Legacy of Kain Blood Omen 2
Onimusha Warlords
Headhunter Redemption

Nightshade
Maximo vs the Army of Zin

These 21 were all $.10.

Ring of Red
Nanobreaker
Second Sight
Stuntman
Robotech Battlecry
Silpheed the Lost Planet
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
Project Eden
Marc Ecko's Getting Up Contents Under Pressure
Headhunter
Hunter the Reckoning Wayward
Eternal Ring
Mad Maestro
City Crisis
Wipeout Fusion

You need to just camp out and see what kind of car the DM drives. Then you will be able to know when he's there..... that or get arrested for stalking.

Lucky. My gamestop had 54 copies of super trucks racing and no other good games. The only game I got that wasn't a sports game was future tactics uprising with a case.

You should just go in wearing random disguises. I vote for black facepaint and mustache glasses.

Guy just wanted all 99 cent games gone so told him I would take them all for 20$ he agreed now to go through them and see which ones I will just be going to good will or boys/ girls club.

At the sale price, with PUR 10%, you could get about 250 games for $20. Hopefully you got more than that!

:lol:As it stands, the last time he and I had a confrontation over my status, it ended with me essentially calling the biggest portion of his customers morons who don't actually get the most for their money and me walking out of his office.

This was after he refused to provide concrete proof to me that there was an actual memo that came down from someone higher than him banning me.

I considered it for Halloween the one year for laughs. Of course, I also considered paying a gang of kids to go in and run their hands along the walls and knock every last case off the shelves in a couple of the stores.;):evil:

Either that or paying a homeless dude a bottle of booze to go in fall down drunk and use one of the $9.99 & under dump bins for just that purpose.:rofl:

But both of those would penalize the employees working there and I actually got to know some of them.

I counted about 500 he had 10 red bins full which I think hold close to 50 a piece mostly sports crap that no one wants. hoping I find Persona 4 in there disc only or maybe some God of War games.

So I just returned/rebought my 40 games from last week and got 30 more. I ended up walking out with a trade card with $35 on it. Guy said I glitched their machine and didn't want to dick with it. So got paid ~$20 (removing what I paid for the original 40 and then some) to take 70 games off their hands. Lol. Works for me.


Here is my haul from this run.. nothing too impressive... but I did get $35 back in trade credit so that = win to me :applause:

30 Games total:

Wow...the 10 for 1 dollar actually has some pretty good games to choose from. I got 20 games and not a single one of them was a sports title. Metal Gear Solid 2, Virtua Fighter 4 Evo, State of Emergency, Shaun Palmer Pro Snowboarder just some highlights.

Would it really be possible to get banned from BB if you found a handful of the 10/1 games and trading them in, at least if they were all different copies?

Also, I talked to a kid last night and he heard the rumor that it might switch to higher price for the B2G2 after this round of promotions but he wasn't sure. I picked up a few games that were higher priced just in case(they even had Grandia 2 complete at mine) so just a head's up.

I wouldn't be surprised if the promotion included all games for b2g2 free after this current one is up. I'd imagine most Gamestops will want PS2 stock gone around or after the holidays this year.

Although, lately the stores have been looking a little barren, aside from ios devices and random headphone peripherals.

You mean the one by Target in WB? That store has the only complete and not faded/stained up copy of Midway Arcade Treasures for PS2 I've seen around, as well as the only copy of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force golf game.

Unfortunately it's also the district managers home office store and by now I think everyone on CAG knows I'm bannimified from even going in there.:cry:

I really should've bought it the last time I had one of those e-Rewards gift cards, but I used that up on the ESA Game Pack for $20 from the Steamtown store. I had a buddy go in there and grab it for me.

OK - I just have to ask - how does one get banned from Gamestop? Other than shoplifting stuff, what could you possibly do to get banned?


Also - here's my 10 for $1 haul:

Project Eden
Silpheed
Amplitude
Giants: Citizen Kabuto
Lord of the Rings: Two Towers
Gran Turismo 3
Taito Legends
Hot Shots Golf 3
Ring of Red
Metal Arms: Glitch in the System

Trading in 30-35 HDMI cables in a day, cancelling a bunch of pre-orders that had promotions tied to them and trading in duplicates of many games that I got for next to nothing.

Of course, the DM here also claims I stole a Dual Shock 3(by allegedly switching out a Dual Shock 3 for a SixAxis when they just came out with the DS3 a week or so prior), which infuriated me that he would openly accuse a customer of stealing something in that manner with no real proof.

I actually ordered a bunch of the b2g2 off the website last night because I couldn't find them in stores. When I get it I'm going to go back to the store and get an adjustment because they didn't take the right stuff off for free, but for 25 bucks I got some stuff I've been looking for, like Way of the Samurai 2, Front Mission 4, the Harvey Birdman game(Judge me, I really don't care) for just about 25 bucks and the saver code still stacked, so it was worth it for a bunch of games I was going to get if I could find them anyway. This is my last wave of PS2 games until the other stuff gets made at least B2G1.
