Oblivion is REALLY clunky compared to F3 & Skyrim. Still fun though.

If you loved the other two games and can handle the "older" graphics, then pick it up. I think you can do better than $20 though. May want to look for a pc version but that's just mho. Oblivion has a fantastic MOD community like Skyrim and Fallout that can add a TON of options to the game! Who doesnt lol at the plague of cheese?!

Anybody know the return policy on guides at GS? If it's like Best Buy I'd want to use it and return for my money back within 30 days.

If it's sealed, at a minimum you can return them.

I think they prefer that you just steal it and then give it back to them later. That way they don't use up receipt paper, etc.

I own several guides, but I have them more as like a collection or homage to my favorite games. I actually do use them, too. I only buy them on sale when about $5 or less (pennied guides preferably) since I can find a good amount of info online.

To want to return a guide after buying it seems silly (besides the point of it being unethical) to me because you might as well just look up the stuff online and save the hassle of going to the store, etc.

Gonna pick up a guide for black 2. Games like that, are the only games worth owning a guide for imo.

I'm pretty sure the employees at my local Gamestop would get befuddled trying to make change for the half penny and just deny the sale. :)

If the Soul Calibur V guide is still available Wednesday at $5 and they haven't pulled it, that means with discount it's $2.50. Yes.

Don't forget, guys: PUR Pro members also get 10% off guides, so the promotion really becomes 55% off for those people (e.g., $20 guide -> $9.99 -> $8.99 after PUR).

Skyrim's interface is better, but I liked Oblivion's story 10x as much. Skyrim's main story sucked. I gave Skyrim a good once through, level everything up to 100, did my thing in it, but that was it. Maybe I'll pick it up in a couple years again when the GOTY version is $20. Oblivion I still go back to.

Still on the website at full price:
http://www.gamestop....egy-guide/98994

Edit:
It may actually be pennied as it's not available to purchase online and only 2 locations in St. Louis have it in stock so I would say it's likely that's the case.

Listen to the Checkmate Arcade video game podcast! Also available on ITunes, Stitcher Radio, or YouTube.

If you try to pick up in store it shows in-store pricing as .01

as in the price dropped to 1 cent (a penny) for them to clear out stock. They will either do this or throw them out.

Anyone know if the price of guides on gamestop.com is the same as in store?

Mainly looking at the XIII-2 CE guide.



It's $25 in store so it should be $13 after discount.

Agree, Oblivion was a much better game than Skyrim. Skyrim's story is nonexistent and the game is just bland/boring imo. I'm actually playing Two Worlds II right now and enjoying it far more than Skyrim.

Where I work when something rings up for a penny that means that we are suppose to destroy the product then throw it away. I don't work for GS so I don't know if they have that policy.

Does GameStop have a price guarantee? I'd like to get a partial refund on my kid's sky lander set that I bought a few weeks ago, if so.
