#14317386 Select eBay Accounts: $25 off $25.01 YMMV

No go for me. Op, thanks for the post though.

Is it possible to use the June $5 coupon online?

Edit: seen a couple pages back that someone had. Which part of the code do you type in?

While doing the weekly Game Pass quest, I discovered that Costume Quest 2 is a fun Paper Mario clone. Whodathunkit?

I think that's a good thing about Game Pass. You jump into a game just to get the quest and end up really enjoying it. I'm probably going to play through Descenders now lol.



#14300390 Xbox one- TOO HUMAN true hidden gem

Posted by Bing Chameleon on 24 June 2020 - 04:34 AM in Video Game Deals

This was already free right? Getting deja vu on being excited and then disappointed

Yeah it was. I forgot I already had it when I tried this time.



#14299861 Persona 5 Royal Phantom Thieves Edition in stock Gamestop - 89.99

Posted by Bing Chameleon on 21 June 2020 - 11:05 PM in Deal Graveyard

Dammit, I thought this was back in stock. Who bumps a 4 month old post to ask what a game is instead of just googling it. You’re killing me over here.

:wall:  I agree with the googling it sentiment lol. I'm glad to see the helpful responses explaining the game though.

Sounds like you're assuming Brickseek or the Walmart ap have accurate inventory...they don't. I'd get my hands on the cab first then worry about modding.

I definitely know how iffy their inventory system is, just thinking a step ahead.

Plenty of great vertical games. Or use a top and bottom bezel to play regular games. Or swap out the monitor.

I nodded my pacman with a pi and have it as a vertical only cabinet.

Thank you for the different suggestions, for $50 I can't complain with the choices.

I think I may finally bite on getting a cabinet to mod. I see a Pacman near me for $50 but am worried about it being a vertical screen layout. I also see an Asteroids one for $1 supposedly.  :rofl:

Welcome to the thread! This is place to be if you are getting into XBox or looking for deals. You'll find out that most people here are friendly and don't mind answering questions or pointing you in the right direction. Just be respectful and thoughtful and you'll be fine!

Speaking of questions, do all gamertags have the 4 digit number after them or is that just new tags? My preferred online handle finally came open and I'd love to claim it but it's trying to attach the 4 digit number to it even though it's showing as totally available.

I believe it's just the new tags only. I recently starting seeing the numbers popping up for people on my friends list who had recently changed their gt. This is just from my personal experience though, I haven't read anything official about it.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is my choice for best licensed soundtrack, but one could definitely make a case for 3, 4, Underground 2, and American Wasteland.

Absolute beast of a franchise, I miss those days so much.

About a year ago I picked up THPS 2x and played through it on my 360. Had a heck of a time, that franchise was something special.

For anyone thinking about buying Assassin's Creed Odyssey Gold Edition on Xbox Live, GS has the steelbook version for $38.97 right now. Granted, I ordered one and it was "GameStop new" but the season pass worked fine.

Even if you swapped shells and developed drift later on, Nintendo will still fix it.

I sent my swapped shell joycons in this past week and got it back fixed and drift free. Mailed it out Wed and got it back that same Sat.

Oh wow, I did not expect that! Thanks for letting me know.



#14264908 PowerA Premium Game Card Case for Nintendo Switch (Mario "M" design)...

OP, you convinced me. I picked up 2, thanks!

Posted by Bing Chameleon on 15 February 2020 - 07:54 PM in Video Game Deals

Does anyone dare buy preowned Joy-cons for $40? I would imagine they’re a cesspool of worn out and drifting Cons...

Nintendo will fix drifting joy cons for free if you don’t mind sending them in. I buy them on eBay by the dozen. They don’t care.


I picked up a couple to change out shells to clear ones. Definitely glad I don't have to spend $70 to do that. I'll be sure to test for drift before I start the process.

I believe only MS allows this.

Thank you. This makes me appreciate more that it's an option with Microsoft.

Is it possible to use funds from your PSN wallet to buy physical items from PlayStation's online store? I searched online but couldn't get a clear answer.

For anyone who wants to complete the "3 achievements in an ID@Xbox title" quest before the end of the month, try out Lonely Mountains: Downhill. I got 3 achievements within the first 20 minutes of playing.

I may go digital only next gen and just wait for sales on most AAA games instead of messing with trading in games (i’m past collecting beyond retro at this point...games are incomplete, need patches/updates/etc)

Sorry for the rant lol

I hear you, just the other day it first hit me that I'm probably going to go all digital next gen. I try to get physical as much as possible but at this point most game discs are nothing more than product keys. I'll stick it out with physical for the rest of this gen but give in to the future I suppose.

For anyone who still has GCU, a lot of these prices are similar to what is on Best Buy's website, especially with PSVR games. I'm going to pick a couple up that I noticed.



#14259434 JJGames.com is going under - just a PSA

Posted by Bing Chameleon on 27 January 2020 - 05:17 AM in Video Game Deals

I got the 21 games I ordered from them. A mix of original Xbox, 360, PSP, couple of PS2, and 1 GC game. Nothing valuable; it averaged about $5 per title. The packaging and condition were fine despite some of the spines being faded (pet peeve of mine). I'm fairly satisfied but sorry to see that some orders were not fulfilled.

Sorry, but I believe you are SOL. I also found out the hard way. NEVER use certs with promos as they cancel out any savings you may have gained.


Ahh, that sucks. It’s weird because I used a $25 off at another store and it worked fine but I’m sure that the game prices in that purchase worked in my favor for some reason. Thank you for the reply though, I’ve definitely learned my lesson.

Posted by Bing Chameleon on 28 December 2019 - 07:21 AM in Video Game Deals

I went and bought 4 Switch games for the B2G2 and used a $15 and $25 off preowned item certificates. It ended up applying both discounts to one of the free games so all was for naught..... Do I have any chance of getting my certificates back by calling customer service or should I just accept that I’m SOL?
