#14178461 Official Collector's Edition Compilation X - 2019

Posted by theemadgamer on Yesterday, 05:11 AM in Video Game Deals

How rare does Amazon it cancel preorders

 

I've never had a non-US Amazon cancel an order.  I've purchased from most of them, especially during the amiibo hunting times, every order shipped.  Now some were lost, and .it was most frequent for lost orders :-(

*Reminder: Everyone who manages to get all 4 Jak CE's from the store will be able to obtain a Jak 4 custom case and theme. It hasn't been confirmed if repurchasing from a third part seller counts yet.

 

Where did that info come from?

Thanks, I always forget to check AAFES and NavEx on these holiday weekends.  Sometimes they have some good deals.

I had to talk myself out of a Ken today. $16 is just too much for these things. Looked cool though.

 

Currently $12.96 on Amazon, as is Young Link

Dragon Fantasy is a two game series that started out with Dragon Fantasy Book 1 followed by Dragon Fantasy Book 2.  Book 2 was updated to fix a lot of the issues with the game including some balancing ... they called this version Dragon Fantasy The Black Tome of Ice.  Book 1 also got an update on many platforms but the Vita version was pushed back.  This updated version is called The Volumes of Westeria.    Book 1 didn't have as many issues as Book 2 did, so the update wasn't as important but now we finally get the Book 1 update (The Volumes of Westeria) on the Vita with this release.

 

So... there are two games... this is the remake of the first one.   Though to be honest the first game was completely playable and awesome in it's Book 1 form.   It's sad though the art for this doesn't reflect what version of the game it is.

To add to (but hopefully subtract from the) confusion, on PSN in the USA only Book 1 & 2 versions are available for the Vita.  The Black Tome of Ice is only available on PS4 through PSN, though the Vita version got an EU PSN release.  So currently this physical release is the only North American release for the first DF game on PS4... and the LRG versions for both TBTOI and TVOW are only available physically in North America for the Vita.

 

What I've opted to do to save my sanity is just keep the Book 1 & Book 2 digital versions on my vita, and bought TBTOI and TVOW versions digitally on my New 3DS.  So I have both versions as Book 1 is completely fine to play as is without the update and I might prefer that version for nostalgic purposes.

 

Wow, THANK YOU for the excellent explanation.

 

I already completed Book I and Book II on my Vita long ago.  I also appear to own ToBI for PS4 but haven't played it yet.  So now just to decide if I was a physical copy.

 

Again, much appreciated.

Them not being clear about what version of Dragon Fantasy this is... I had to dig around looking at the dev site which hadn't been updated in ages and finally on their twitter to find out this is indeed The Volumes of Westeria and not the regular Dragon Fantasy Book 1 edition.   The cover art is super stupid for this release to not tout this better version... and the LRG item listing is moronic to not even have it mentioned at all.   This is part of what I absolutely hate about this company.  Just advertise what you are doing at least on the actual page you are selling it on.

 

I tried to do similar research and was still left confused.  Reading your post alllllmost clarified it for me  :dunce: .  I'm a dunce.  So today's LRG release is or is not some combination of previously released Book I/Book II?

Happened to me for a keychain. I’m fine with that because I’m not paying to ship it.

 

And if you have enough points for more than one item, you can only apply one code at a time, so you have to order rewards separately, I guess, paying shipping for each......

What are all of you doing with the cases? Throwing them out or collecting them?

 

I use the original cases to hold used caseless games I've purchased.

Really? I've had a couple of Gamestops charge me refurbishment fees because I had no case, saying it costs them money to have to provide a case. Were they lying to me? 

 

I can't speak for GS policy but I regularly turn in PS3, PS4 and Switch games with no case and have NEVER been charged a refurb fee.  I have at least 6 GS nearby and I've traded into all of them.




#14135089 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by theemadgamer on 24 February 2019 - 07:12 PM in Video Game Deals

Has anyone encountered a GS employee that insisted that the DLC code in a trade in game was unused?  Had an issue last night with trading in RDR 2 Ultimate and the GA insisted that the ultimate dlc was intact...wasn't ready for that so just walked out.  Any help here?

 

Never had a GS person look at anything but the disc.  I turn in lots of caseless games cuz I buy lots of used with crappy cases.  Never a peep.

So I heard the B2G1 coupons work on multiples. So I can buy 12 and get 3 free. Has this been confirmed?

 

In the past, some B2G1 coupons have worked that way in a single transaction.  Prob is you can't tell till you try.  Good new is most folks will ring it up and check for ya.

My store just got its KHIII stock in and a most came fine but a couple are like this thanks to the empty space left in the back for the pin. Obviously they will be a bit more susceptible to damage when sent separately in bubble mailers. :???:

I didn't want to make a new topic for this PSA, so I'll put this here...

 

Anyone that placed their Kingdom Hearts 3 order from Amazon for the low price of $40.99 make sure to update your payment information if it is outdated!

 

Seems this order was placed January 25th, 2015.  Wow, it will be 4 years ago.

 

Yeah, I remember there were a couple of glitches.  Seems I locked it in for $30, but I don't remember the details.  Amazon hasn't had a good glitch in a while, those were the days.

Did anyone else get an email from the waitlist informing you that none of the items you were waitlisted for are available, only to get and LRG email later the same day indicating some of those items will be available for sale?
