Guess it's time to pick up Kane & Lynch, as it's $16.25 AC + EDGE. Have to see if there's a couple other games worth picking up at the same time. I'd pick up Army of Two, though $29.24 AC + EDGE is still a little steep for my blood. Maybe it'll drop between now and Thursday.

Well I had a nice little instance at my favorite local GameStop. I did a return/rebuy on 9 games, and we were talking and what not, and he screwed up the return in my favor. He put their standard used prices in, instead of the discounted prices I got them for to begin with. We both didn't notice it until we got to the end, because they had minty copies of GRID and Madden 09 there so I picked them up as well. It came back with me having $8 dollars in credit left when I should have owed $34 or so.

I told him we could go back and fix everything but he was like don't worry about it, it was only about $40 in your favor. This guy is the store manager too. To thank him and make up for the little error I went ahead and preordered 3 more games. That seemed to make things better for him and he was pleasant through the whole thing with the returns and rebuys. I really am glad that I have such a pleasant GameStop around here.

why would people already have sold Tales of Vesperia? It just came out.

*gulp* My wallet is going to take a beating today.

Anyone played Too Human? I was supposed to get that on rental but GameFly snubbed me (a la Netflix Throttling)

I have to buy my games back here in California, god I don't to pay high taxes in Tennessee...

I talked to the GameStop employee today about the game and he said it wasn't a full price game after playing through it. He said I should probably wait until it drops some more to justify it.

I used to manage a Gamestop for a few years, and there was ALWAYS someone who would trade in a just released game within the first week after buying it from the store. Someone didn't like it, suddenly needed the cash, whatever. The people who like the game will be playing for awhile, I'm hoping for the unsatisfied buyer. :)

might not take part in this coupon..

backlog is getting huge... although I'm usually terrible at resisting these coupons.

My backlog is getting larger also, especially with the past PS3/PS2/PSP coupon. Now I have about 10 PS2 RPGs that won't be played for awhile.

Wow, you are one lucky sob. :D


After hearing some of the GameStop horror stories every week, I really do feel lucky. I also went to the other local store and picked up Too Human. It was nice and minty. I couldn't help it, even if the game is mediocre, for $38 and some change after taxes, it's worth that in my book.

Did anyone else notice on the coupon it says to go to www.gamestop.com/email to get deals like this delivered to your inbox. Now, I'm pretty sure you have to be on the mailing list to actually get these coupons, right? Just thought that was odd.

These coupons rarely stack with other promotions. Sometimes you'll find an employee that will override it though.

Very nice coupon this week. Figured it was about time for 360 games to get the 25% off treatment again. Gonna try to score CivRev and some others. I'm waiting on the actual email to come through though because this local store gave me a hard time last week when I didn't have the entire email. Might just have been a one time deal, but might as well save myself a trip.

Also, if you are looking for used copies of new games it never hurts to ask and have them check local stores inventory through their system. And yes, people do trade in new games. It seems like pretty often I'm in a store and a parent comes in and trades in new games that a) their ungrateful kids don't like even after they begged them to plop down $60 for a brand new game or b) they want to return an M rated game that they purchased for their 10 yr old (they usually say something like "man these games have bad languague/violence/etc") good thing they are paying attention to what they buy their kids.

where would you search for a used copy of a new game thing (like tales of vesperia) cause I didn't even see it on the site as an option.

Why? They will for sure have another 360 coupon before Christmas. Only thing that will happen between then and now is more price drops.

Well i don't know when i'll get it exactly, plus these coupons seem to come at random times.

Has anyone tried the new Beijing 08 Olympics game ? I found a couple of stores that have the game used and with the coupon it comes out for around $29. and change.

I love the old arcade button-smash olympics games.
