So...what the hell is this?

http://www.gamestop....ing-dead/103285


Yeah, I think it's supposed to be from the perspective of Daryl and Otis, but not entirely sure. Definitely getting it too. Seems like a ton of interesting zombie games are coming to consoles in the next year or so. State of Decay, Last of Us, etc.

Edit:

Also, just saw this!

...Who the hell updates OS' constantly? That's beyond stupid.

Anyway, trying to fight all temptations of picking this up as I only need to get Episodes 4 and 5, but DAMN does having it all on disc sound convenient and that comic compendium would be nice to have.

Dammit, now I really wish I hadn't canceled my pre-order for this... but with the delay, I would have been out of town when it was delivered and it would have sat on my doorstep (assuming they ship using UPS) for 3 weeks.

My gamestop told me that I was the only one that pre-ordered. Apparently I made one of the employees jealous. They asked the manager who's that was and if they are coming to pick it up. The manager was like yeah it is getting picked up :lol:

Actually my manager was joking with me about that. Seriously though, my gamestop would never do that to me. :)

I'm even more stoked about getting this now that it won GOTY last night. :D

It's really not.

Convenience = installed on HDD through XBLA. Especially knowing that any XBLA compilation to date has required you to play it directly from the disc with no true install option. That means loud spinning disc syndrome for the entire 12+ hours that you play.

The only good factors to the disc are:

1. Trade-in/resale value
2. Transferable/giftable to friends/family
3. Inevitable price reduction (see XBLA Triple Pack & Silent But Deadliest Warrior)
4. Future-proofing (true physical ownership)

I'm gonna wait it out until the XBLA Christmas sales are all done before deciding what to buy. If you only need ep4&5, it should be an easy choice.

This was exactly the thought that came to me. New game sales don't make them much money at all, they just increase traffic to their site and stores.



lol whats up with you guys hating on gamestop, if gamestop didnt exist, stores like bby etc wouldnt have to be kept on their toes. Do you remember when bby had no competition whatsoever prices were jacked up high.

i personally love gamestop, yeah u pay a bit higher prices but you do sort of get a plethora of all things video game in a one stop shop.

not to burst your bubble, gamestop makes shit tons of money even if they sell a new product, they make 20 percent profit on new products. and keep in mind developers/publishers pay gamestop for the opportunity to slap on promotional dlc, gamestop exclusives, etc.

i invest in gamestop and made a shit ton of money off them. why? because they are that damn profitable.

No one pays gamestop money so that gamestop can have exclusive DLC. I hope that wasn't a serious comment.

There may be a few games that make 20% profit but that isn't normal. And they most certainly don't make 20% on new hardware.

Yes they do. Recent example is Randy Pitchford said the Creature Slaughter Dome wouldn't have existed w/o GameStop money. Listen to his interview on IGN Podcast Unlocked.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt but what I was replying to the poster above who stated that gamestop gets paid money to have exclusive DLC which is absolutely backwards. That's like saying that NASCAR drives pay companies money to endorse their products.

The world doesn't work that way.

I'm going to nominate myself for CAG dumbass of the year. I just went to one of my local Gamestops to take advantage of the crazy trade values going on right now. Well there was one of the 360 CE sitting right on the counter and I was like "is this for sale?" She was like "as soon as I finish checking it in. You want it?" Well I hadn't been keeping up with this thread but she had it scanned and ready to go and at the last second I was like "I don't think the extras are worth $40, I'll hold off". After I left I checked this thread and proceeded to call back to see if they could hold it till I came back. She said turns out it was a preorder and was so happy I changed my mind. So not only did I get someone oblivious to the street date, she was also going to give me someone's preorder. I will never hesitate to pull the trigger again.

OK sorry misread your reply. Yeah GS doesn't GET paid for DLC but DOES PAY the devs for preorder exclusive DLC.

If you want the specific thing I mentioned, IGN Podcast Unlocked Episode 70 about the Creature Slaughter Dome starts at the 7:00 mark although the first 1/3 of the interview is about Gamestop, value of the experience, used market, etc.

Someone tell me if this is stupid:

But I really want the Compendium! And Have been waiting for it to drop in price forever, but it has not budged and I almost bought it today full MSRP at Books A Million.

Would it be smart to just buy this?

Since you can currently get BOTH compendiums combined for the exact same price through Amazon right now (or alternately, get just the one included in this set for half the price) I would say that would be pretty stupid if that's what you're primarily after.
