Deus ex for 7.50 is a must! Is Homefront worth paying $5 for? I'm also aware that homefront has a online pass.

It's a fair game. Don't expect for it to set the world on fire or anything.

Doesn't matter anymore. They took the online servers down. So if you are hunting for a platinum, you won't get it with Homefront.

My wife was the who went to the store while she had me on the phone...she asked the employee if they had EDF 2017 Pre-owned and how much it was and they told her $14.99 which she then told them about the website price and they told her "online price is always cheaper." That's Gamestop for me in a nutshell...


They didn't even scanned it.

If they scanned it at the register, it should show up at the updated price. Should be universal. If not, your Gamestop is pretty wonky then. :lol:

ok well here's what i bought, keep in mind some may NOT be part of the 50% off, but they were $3 or less so whatever. plus i got my 10% off, had a $5 off PUR coupon, and had a 20% off birthday coupon to help on something.

Here's they are (all complete with box, booklet, and disc unless otherwise noted):
Xbox 360:
- Dark Sector ($1.79? yes please!)
- Section 8
- Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood
- DDR Universe 2 (less than $3)
- DDR Universe 3 (less than $3)
- Bionic Commando
- Fracture (less than $3)
- Golden Axe: Beast Rider
- Akai Katana

PS3:
- Motorstorm
- Haze
- Lair
- MAG
- Homefront

Wii:
- Geometry Wars: Galaxies
- Boom Blox
- Boom Blox Bash Party (no booklet)
- Elebits
- Cursed Mountain
- Conduit (special edition box but just game and booklet no extras that I see)
- Marble Saga Kororinpa
- Sam & Max 2: Beyond Time & Space
- Broken Sword: Directors cut (went to a 3rd gamestop and grabbed this and...)
- Dawn of Discovery (...this one). So 24 games total for about $82.

I also went to the Toy Vault store and bought 17 Atari games for $0.99 a piece and Pac-man for Atari for $3.99 so 18 total.

I collect games so I obviously won't play them all, not now anyway, but call it a compulsion, hobby, whatever, but I enjoy it and $104.58 for 42 games to add to my collection is a deal any day of the week.

This now puts me at 2608 games in my collection (this is not including PC games or downloaded games. I only count physical console/handheld based games as that is what I collect). Crazy I know, but very cool to break the 2600+ mark. Also interesting that Atari 2600 games are what put me over that 2600+ mark.

XBL/PSN: GrimmTrixX
Currently Playing

:xb1: Dead Rising 3

:ps3: The Last of Us
:wiiu: Mario Kart 8
:3ds: Kirby Triple Deluxe

So I'm assuming that just like the older DDR games, you can play the DDR Universe games on a standard controller as well?

Virtua Tennis is fast and fun while Top Spin feels slow and clunky.

Neither of those have Move support right

I returned F1 2010 after finally getting around to trying it and got El Shaddai, gonna give that one another shot.

Stopped by my local GS to grab a few titles and ALL of the 50% off bin were disc only versions. Even at $3-5 a game, I cannot bring myself to purchase games that don't have at least the cover art.

Almost every single game I got from this sale except like 1 I've gotten from the racks and not the bin. I recommend using the Gamestop website/app to figure out which stores have the games you want in stock, and then either asking the employees or looking at the various pre-owned racks to find what you're looking for.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks OP

Today I picked up Resistance 2, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and GRAW 2... all for $11 and change. To my surprise, each had the official cases and booklets. I'll keep checking back because it seems as though the list will keep updating since I can imagine that GS will try to slowly clean out their inventory before the PS4 drops next year.

Boo! I wasn't hunting for a platinum but I thought the multiplayer was neat enough to consider buying it. But after you told me that....

I actually did check on the pre-owned wall racks as well. The GS employees did a good job at getting them all to the bin. The stock for the store show "low stock" so I was not all that optimistic going in anyways.

Ah all my local gamestops had nothing in the bin but bad company 2 for Xbox and Wii shovelware.

mine had a lot of copies on the shelves, and a very tiny bin that I actually missed until I'd already checked out. Seems they put the less likely to sell stuff in the bin, and leave the rest on the wall if they're feeling lazy

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

I'm sure this has probably been asked but I couldn't find an answer, are the prices online at the gs website then the 50% off to get the price?

The prices online are the prices - the 50% already that you will pay in store before any coupons or PUR :)

My games came in today from the 75% monday. 6 came generic so I went to the store and swapped em out for complete copies. Also, Euro 2008 came sealed for the 360. That was an interesting/pleasant surprise.

Went back today after I traded in a spare copy of BioShock 2 and a generic copy of DMC 4.

Picked up:

Stoked
Section 8 (Geeze, this has to have the largest colored manual I've ever seen.)
GH: World Tour
Bayonetta

I know Bayonetta wasn't on sale but I've wanted it forever since everyone raves about it.

And like others said, my store only put like 4 360 and 4 PS3 games in the sale bin. Everything else was still on the wall and in the 14.99 and under bin.

if anyone picks up a generic case copy of something, it might be worth checking out thecoverproject.com. You can print out your own artwork, so even if it's a crappy gamestop DVD case, it won't look as bad;)

Thanks for updating the list, OP. Hopefully there's still one or two of the better games with case and manual. Looks like my PUR will be put to use this weekend.

I have to say that reading the list is making me dizzy, though. Essentially 3-D effects without the glasses. :shock: Red might not have been the best color to use in combination with white. :-k
