#14312000 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by the_red_tide on 05 August 2020 - 10:06 PM in Video Game Deals

Fortnite is free just incase you missed that. It's also not good at all and is specifically made for kids.

The physical copies are sought after and worth a bit of money. Is the PVE more free?

I haven’t bought a used game from GameStop in a really long time. Do most of their games still come without a case and manual (assuming the game even came with a manual)?

Current gen games most likely will come with a case, though very few actually have a manual when they were first released. The chance of a game being complete goes down each previous gen.

Opaque rings, cloudy rings?
 
It's to do with the GS refurbishment process.  Shine the disc, then douse it into a solution and scrub the residue away, underwater.  Unfortunately for all of us, the yucky (dirty) water seeps into the inner ring area, creating a now very disgusting, unsellable disc.  A nice green tint is the GS touch.
 
PS - you can do the same with any disc, using the toothpaste method, to help fix busted discs.  It does work, but by the time you clean away all the toothpaste by scrubbing it under a facet, the disc looks like shit.  Technically it works though, it's just now green / blue in the inner portion, or whatever color your toothpaste was.

GameStop uses a disc resurfacing for their discs, albeit the employees don’t know how to use it properly. The reside is the solution they put on the disc before resurfacing.



#14303191 Steam+ Deals Mega Thread (All PC Gaming Deals)

I'm sure this has been discussed before but need some advice on RDR2 pc before the sale expires. I played about 30 hours on the ps4 version and then decided to sell my copy with the intention of eventually buying the PC version. I put it on the back burner and recently thought about finally pulling the trigger. I just purchased a gaming laptop and should be able to max out the settings.

So my question.......Is the PC version noticeably better, more immersive and worth the platform jump? read mixed statements on the differences between versions but would love to hear the opinions from the CAG community.

It all depends on what your builds specs are. In general the resolution and framerate are going to be better than a base PS4. Played Red Dead 2 on a Xbox One X, then switched to pc. Saw quite a boost in visual detail and a stable framerate. Most of the mixed reviews are for Social Club, which can be a pain at times if it goes down. If you are just going to play single player then go for it. If you don’t like it you can always get a steam refund before the time limit.

I'm really debating on what to do with my low end current gen stock. I have a literal pile of 80 or so games that I'm hoping for a +5 on to trade in, but if GS really is completely trying to get rid of stuff like that I can't see them doing a +5. Might end up trading some of them in towards the TLOU2 and then return it, even if it gives me a small loss on the games.
What they're accepting is wack. They accept a $5 XB1 game but not Fire Emblem Warriors, a frequently $30 switch game.

Trade value for FE Warriors tanked after Hyrule Warriors was released on the Switch.

We need a new game store, GameStop is the worst company I have seen in my lifetime.

Oh, there are far worse companies than GameStop.

Did anyone else see cheap prices on the preowned Switch games? I had several (BOTW 27.99, Diablo 3 17.99, Civ 6 2.99, MK11 7.99) displayed on the page. Went to check out the price was back to normal.

How are they governed then? Can a private company contact a GameStop location and essentially buy out their used inventory (at a agreed upon wholesale rate)? I'd assume there's corporate restrictions preventing this.

. They are all owned by corporate, not sure how you go about contacting them. You would probably have to get in contact with a district or region leader to ask that question.

Are all GameStop stores franchised? If not is there a list anywhere of non-franchised stores?

None of the GameStop stores belong to a franchise

Question I tried to trade games toward a existing pre order for the 20 percent extra but they say I can't even though it was not paid off I had to put it towards a new pre order is this true?

If you are trading towards one of the games listed on the promotion, then you should be able to trade games towards the selected game. I would call and speak with the manager or cancel the preorder and start a new one.

Damn no copies of Control near me. Anyone know a promo code that works for ordering it online? I was gonna wait for Game Pass but $27-30 is too good to pass up.

SAVER used to be the code for free shipping, but it hasn’t worked in quite some time. I would add an item to get you free shipping and then just return it in store when you get your order

Hey when was the last stealth bump and when do you guys think the next one is?

Believe that is what last week, and not sure on when the next one will occur. There is a specific date for the date for the stealth bump search code but it probably won’t show any results until closer to said date. Most likely a bump will happen either the third or last weekend of the month. MWT022020

Mainly the Niche titles. You're classic Nintendo hits will always hold value (Mario kart, super Mario, Zelda, etc.) but I'm usually looking for rarer games, since there's a million of the first party games out there.
Although I will say the Pokemon DS titles would be a big deal, but those things are faked constantly. Has anyone had any luck/failure with pokemon DS games at GameStop?

Recieved one fake copy of each Heartgold and SoulSilver. My order of two White Version 2 copies- one was in great condition, other had label damage and did not work. Rest of the orders were fine

Wait, didn’t Platinum just sell their soul to Tencent, why do they need our money? Just ask their Chinese masters to print them some yuan.

Most likely to garner interest on whether or not it would be worthwhile to port the game to those platforms. No point in doing so if they can’t turn a profit.

GameStop had mentioned that after 30 days after a game had released, any cash used on the preorder would be converted to credit in the system if the game had not been picked up. https://www.cheapass...-refund-policy/

Can I not put additional money on a preorder at a store different from where the preorder is held? I don’t do preorders often, but I wasn’t able to add to the Dragon Ball preorder.

Preorders are tied to that specific store. Have you considered moving some money away from your preorder so that you can then place the trade towards it to get to the full amount

Damn it just received a plague tale innocent with generic case. Did this game even have a steelbook version? I’m surprised someone traded this in without the case

Doesn’t look like one was ever made for the game. Saw an eBay listing for a custom made case though.
