Rumor: GameStop to Issue Credit Cards

28 July 2014 - 06:43 PM


From the article:

Destructoid reports that it has "obtained photographs" of a purported brochure advertising a credit card tied to the retailer's existing PowerUp Rewards program. Signing up for the card nets customers anywhere from 5,000 to 15,000 PowerUp Rewards Points (worth roughly $5 to $15 in value), according to the images, as well as benefits like "special financing offers." We'd expect that having a GameStop credit card would also provide Rewards Points for everyday purchases, but there's no mention of such a benefit in the report.

Those signup bonuses are… kinda weak. And of course, it has a ridiculously high APR :lol:

Again, this is all based on one Destructoid report, so who knows if it'll come to pass. It sounds like just the sort of thing GameStop would get into, though.

PAX Prime 2014 Thread: zenprime's Fried Rice is the New Pwnmeal

02 April 2014 - 06:35 PM

Hi everyone!
We're doing this again this year! Well, those of us who were lucky/stalkery/fast enough to nab passes, anyway :razz: So, without further ado, welcome to the 2014 edition of CAG's PAX Prime thread!

Important Notices and Updates:
- See the second post for all basic PAX and Seattle info, from schedule links to sightseeing suggestions.
- If you're currently trying to get passes, through eBay, Craigslist, Reddit, or whereever, be mindful of bootlegs. Also, according to some posters on NeoGAF (here, here, and here), there's a good chance that the longer you wait, the cheaper your options will get. In general: common sense.
- If you have extra passes and want to offer them to your fellow CAGs, please follow CAG rules and proper decorum for sales/trades. Keep in mind that this is not a trading thread. You are free to post that you have and/or are looking for passes, but please do not spam this thread with such notices; conduct as much of your business as possible via trade lists and/or PMs. If this thread gets too large/busy with requests/offers, I will list them here for convenience's sake.

RPG Thread XIX is getting a rhythm game spinoff

01 January 2014 - 09:24 AM

First there was Final Fantasy with Theatrhythm, and coming later this year, Persona 4: Dancing All Night. Ys should be next since it has the best music.

Happy New Year, peoples. My main RPG goal for this year is to get as much of my MegaTen backlog (including P4) taken care of as possible. This will be tough...
