Just because you couldn't get the games, don't be an ass to someone who managed to score some cheapass games.

No, he's perfectly correct in his assessment of the situation. It's generally considered not in good taste to post your multiple game purchases and state that you will be selling them for profit - especially when other CAGs are looking for them. Feel free to make a profit and even post your "haul," but stop at the "I'm going to make a profit."

CAG used to be much better than this.

Is Phantasy Star Universe online only or is there a single player portion i can play? I'd love to get this for $8 but not if it's online only. Any CAGs able to grab an extra copy if Phantasy Star Universe has an offline portion to the game?

According to Wikipedia, there is a 40-hour offline part of the game. There's not a reference, so take that as you will, but I imagine that it's correct.

I didn't see any copies at my local ShopKo, but I know Kmart is clearancing it out as well. I'll look for a copy next time I'm out. ;)

I am sorry, looking back it does feel that way with the post. I will try my best not to gloat anymore and bring more attention to my posts with pictures.

However in my eyes it was the same as saying I'm trading into blockbuster or goozex because it had the best trade in value.

You bring up a valid point and I didn't mean to say it was just you (or even comment on your situation, for that matter). I was mainly pointing a finger at those that immediately get defensive when someone suggests it's wrong to hoard/flip.

Some of us are a little jumpy because it's getting more and more difficult to get people to share the wealth, so to speak.



As to the post just above this, there is a single copy of Viva Pinata CE at my Shopko sitting at $7.99. If anyone wants it, shoot me a PM and I'll see if it's still there when I'm back in the area.

Nothing at the Shopko in Monroe, WI. It was actually a pretty depressing game selection period. They had maybe 40 titles for each of the current systems. Kind of sad.... I guess it is Monroe, after all. heh.

I was at the Belvidere Shopko on Sunday and these three games scanned as $19.99. Very odd.

I did notice that some of the $9.99 games are now $7.99. But there are some CAG's reporting that some have gone up to $19.99. I know I checked a few weeks ago and it came up $19.99 instead of $9.99. I will post that list in the main topic. Thanks deletion.

my apologies if some of the games i listed are turning up 19.99. but please do double check prices when at shopko, they are notorious for not updating the price tags. just hope that the list is a good start on what to look for. good luck on everyone's finds. :)

Regardless of the morality of the deed, his tone was unnecessary, which was my main point.

See, the problem with a text-only conversation is that you really don't know what his tone was, just what you implied from the text. No need to jump on the guy about something that may not have been meant in the manner you interpreted.

Oh, honestly.

In a general sense, 'tone' is the attitude of the speaker or writer as revealed in the choice of vocabulary or the intonation of speech.

That's from here, as juvenile as the source may seem.

Thanks for giving back to the CAG community. We appreciate it.


You're right - understanding the tone of anything involves inferring something. I inferred from this that he was being sarcastic. Remember, he said this in response to the buyer saying he was going to sell an item for profit via some outlet other than CAG. Correct me if this isn't sarcasm.

Moreover, my point is this. As I see it, Purkeynator had a much better choice when approaching this situation: tell ets that "Hey, saying you're going to try to turn this over for profit is kind of frowned upon here. Be careful of what you say in the future." Instead, what ets got was sarcastic CAGer #5438 being rude in a topic that most definitely did not require rudeness.

I'm sorry if this comes off as defensive, but quite honestly, it is. When it comes to people copping attitudes with others for next to no reason, I think a little defensiveness is needed.

Really, guy, no need for the caustic sarcasm. He's entitled to take an opportunity to make a personal profit.


Purkey, sorry if this was overly harsh - I meant it to be advisory, not aggressive. And I most certainly did not intend to jump on you.

EDIT: To everyone, sorry for derailing the thread. To thelonepig, I can most certainly see your side of the issue (scarcity of bargain-sharing). The last thing I want to do is offend someone over such a trivial issue. I apologize if I've done as such to you. Let me know if I should do anything else to make it right.

No offense taken on my end. I always find it's easier to give people the benefit of the doubt and realize that not everyone will think like I do (no matter how much I wish that were the case sometimes).

In other news, no new clearance at my local Shopko.

shopko just did another round of clearance, but not sure exactly what games were marked down knowing that they usually still keep the original price sticker on most items. here's what i saw:

360
Quake 4 - 17.99
Crackdown - 19.99
Open Season - 3.59
College Hoops 2k6 - 13.xx

Xbox
Fable - 7.59
Intec Mini Wireless Controller - 7.59 (from 30)

GBA
Tales of phantasia - 7.xx
Boktai 2 - 7.xx

PS2
Syphon Filter - 13.xx


there's probably more, but not a whole lot of stuff was marked.

You guys were right, I was being sarcastic. Call me a bastard all you want but posting that you bought a bunch of clearance games and are selling them for profit is not appreciated here by most people. If you are going to do it, don't gloat about it on a message board.
