Hey IAmTheCheapestGamerPosted Image, wanted to thank you for all the years that you've contributed to the search of cheap ass guides, this site's members are very flip floppy and are not to be taken seriously! I appreciate you and the time you've spent to help us all out!! Peace out man!

Thanks for drawing on your 4 months experience of being here to give an accurate assessment of what has gone on here for "years" as you said. "Not to be taken seriously" indeed.

People are giving too much credit to IATCG. Yes he made the topic but he also refused to wiki it so that anyone can update. It is really a collective effort from everyone who contributed.

I can't argue with that. The .01 guide threads were happening before IATCG even joined, much less making them.

Thanks Dark Rider.

I don't understand why everyone was ganging up on IATCG. We really don't know if he's the reason penny guides at BB stopped.


It doesn't matter, he's guilty for the attempt.

People flip out when others call the store to check about a possible price glitch, but this is far, far worse. He got pissy that he couldn't partake in the penny guides any longer so he attempted (and likely succeeded) in ruining it for everyone. You think the guide publishers he contacted would have just investigated the store that was near IATCG and threatened them with pulling their credit for just that store? No, they would have threatened the entire chain.

People get banned on here just for talking shit yet this guy is still going around after making an attempt to ruin a long running deal for the entire CAG community? That's ridiculous.

He was fine with running the thread when he benefited from it, but once he could no longer benefit, then no one else could either.

Alright guys enough.

This thread is for discussion of guide related drops, not was IATCG innocent or guilty. I don't care if you think he was right, or wrong, the discussion of this absurd topic needs to end.
If you want to make a IATCG hate thread, whatever, but let's keep this thread about penny guides.

Now this I can fap to.

Actually I did Wiki the OP(which is the ONLY post I believe you can make a wiki on CAG on the current software) in the last thread so people could update it on their own if the so chose.

Moreover, in the FAQ/original OP(before I moved it to the second post) I'm fairly certain I gave credit to Guinaevere and floormat for running this thread before I took it over from one of them.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

I'm pretty certain that someone mentioned the MK CE did come up as $.01 in the system and another CE guide, but apparently I'm having a brain fart and can't recall the second one.

Found it: PatelKing last week;

Here's some confirmation for Best Buy:
Couldn't find MK LE or DAII LE guides but had them look up in RSS, and both those show $.01
On the other hand, I found resistance 3 and white knight chronicles II and both of those rang up full price even though they on the list.

Good job on buying pre-pull. All stores I had them check in RSS around CT and parts of NY and NJ are all showing 0 inventory.


No luck finding any over here though... *shrug*

Thanks for bringing this post back to light. I will add these to the OP. Would be great if we could get a second confirmation.

Edit: Added. Does anyone have SKUs?

Stock locator link for the MK CE guide: http://www.bestbuy.c...Mode=searchmode

If it doesn't work for you, try deleting your cache or different browsers. It worked in mine, but showed that the closest stores with it in stock(in store only) are Muncy(PA) and Phillipsburg(NJ).:cry:

The locator says every store in my area has the DAII CE guide. That can not be right.

Dragon Age II CE guide stock locator: http://www.bestbuy.c...Mode=searchmode

This one shows 'in store only' for EVERY BB store by me. So either this is wrong or they still have them sitting in the back room at the stores someplace. The MK one showed in stock only at some really far off ones.

Not so fast. I and at least one other person (who posted in the prior thread) checked Dragon Age II CE after that post about it being $0.01 in RSS, and it scanned at full price.

Probably same situation. In the RSS the priced might be marked a penny but when rung up it is probably still full price. I remember running into the opposite a couple times when asking employee's to look up pennied out guides for me in the past.
