WormFOODx's March 2010 Pickups

Posted by Syranth, 15 April 2010 · 175 views

So I have really never had one of those months where I felt I should do a pickups blog, but March was one of those "holy crap" months. Mind you, I didn't pay full price on any of these except for Final Fantasy 13, many were free, many were trades.

Most of these were free or severely price dropped thanks to one glitch or another at Gamestop.com.

Yea, that's a Kratos mask. Got one from Gamestop at the midnight launch.

I have two daughters, so most of these are for them. Lucky they don't come to CAG because many of these are future birthday presents.

Heh, this needs explaining.

I was at Gamestop cancelling my preorder of Just Cause 2 (thank you Kmart ad!) and some rich snobby woman and her son were in line trading in his Xbox 360, games, and...... a PSP 1000. They wanted cash for it all so I just sniped it off of her for $35 and that was that!

This thing is perfect, and here is why. According to their story, he dropped it and they sent it to Sony to be repaired but the son bought a 3000 while waiting. Whatever. The one Sony sent back was a refurb and not their original. It still has the protective stickers on it Sony put on and an RMA sticker on the back for their inventory. Seriously, flawless system.

Anyway, I've gotten a couple of games for free, most very much discounted or traded for on CAG or friends in RL.


People talk about backlogs. I consider taking a break from CAG just because of March. I really want to play most of this, but don't think I'll get to it until the apocalypse (2012?)

Holy shit! And we thought Mana Knight was bad...
great haul! what are you going to do with the extra patapon?
@ maxgle It's up on the marketplace right now. As a fluke, I traded for one then a friend gave me one.
Impressive. I also envy you for getting the Kratos mask. They had one at my GS, and it was the ONLY reason I went to the midnight launch. The question is, what you are going to play first? :-P
Soon as I saw it. The first thing that came to mind was. Someone bought more than TMK did. That's a lot of stuff. ;)
First thing i thought of was: how the Fuck are you guna play all that ;)
@the_punisher I can't! lol
I want that Kratos mask. So awesome.
GS gave out Kratos masks on midnight release?!?!? Son of a...
Wow, awesome pickup blog... This really makes me want to go buy some games, I miss the days of coming how with a big stack of games and getting to open them all and try them :D

I've been trying to avoid CAG for the same reasons, I'm trying not to buy so much because, thanks to CAG :D , I acquireda very nice backlog last year and I'm working on playing through those games now. I still read the blogs and vist a few times a day, but I stay away from the forums, very far away... I've wondered in there a few times and it usually has me out looking for games luckily, I haven't found most of the deals I was looking for, so I didn't buy, but it still tempts me :D
@Jerajdai Not exactly. The Gamestop I go to is actually pretty cool. They take the freebie stuff that they get to decorate the store with and raffle it off on midnight launches. I've actually gotten two things from that, the Kratos mask and a Final Fantasy 13 wall scroll.
Thanks for the clarification - now I don't feel like I missed out on the best midnight release freebie ever. And congrats on winning both of those! Wish my GS did stuff like that.
damnnnnn
great haul
I won't turn this into a trade blog, but check my lists for the Kratos Mask.
I sold that same mask on ebay for $40 shipped fyi...

Worms just let me buy you a r4 card, ok? Kids are too expensive nowadays to be spending that much money on.
