i already threw whole bunch of EGMs, all of GamePros, NEXT Generation, GameFan, OPM, PSM, eXpert Gamer, PC Gamer, Computer Gaming World, etc. all go bye bye. no space. threw whole bunch of Maxim, FHM, Stuff magazines also. lol. I kept like 95% of my Nintendo Power magazines though. sigh.. the good old days where you wait for magazines to come in the mail. exciting moments

Why would you guys throw all that stuff away? You could donate it or at least try to sell it instead of just trashing it. Half Price Books will buy paperback game guides.

Eh, that hasn't been my experience. I've never had anything get priced under $3 for game guides, I have had regular paperback books have offers as low as 10c  though.

Same and the Gears of War CE. I have about 8 stores scoped out so I can grab them as soon as they drop.

Picked up Battlefront CE from Gamestop today, and a Far Cry Primal CE at Bestbuy. They freaked out at Bestbuy and eventually let me take it. Guy at Gamestop didn't even blink. I know these were pennied awhile ago so I was pretty happy to get them.

I must have missed the BF CE guide. When did it drop?

Blast, totally thought I had picked up that Witcher CE guide back when it was on sale on GS.com... can't seem to find it anywhere or any record of me having picked up... I don't suppose these have been pennied yet, and if so, I don't suppose there's one of you on here who has a "spare"??

Got an Uncharted 4 CE today. Found it at the same store that I found the Battlefront CE at.

It hasn't been pennied out, it's back down to $19.99 making it a perfect guide to use the PUR coupon to get it free. (That's what I did)

online? all the stores nearby that had it, still had it marked (and rung up) at $29.99.  Surprised the Halo wars 2 one is still near or at full price as well.

Maybe my stores didn't update the sticker, but I definitely bought one 3 months ago for free with the $20 strategy guide coupon.
