Got Darkness 2 for a penny at best buy earlier today. Actually it was just free, they deleted the sku and so she just gave it to me.


Same thing happened to me but it was a Hunted: The Demon's Forge guide.

Had a hit at a St. Louis area mall Gamestop about 3 weeks ago. Got a Deus Ex for free (rang it up but the cashier just paid the penny - nice). They did mention that "someone must have missed these," unfortunately.

Also tried a Collinsville Gamestop and got nothing. Only had a few really new guides on the floor and the ones that he told me were in the back were newer-ish as well.

Quick question one of my locals that had gow 3 reg ed were still showing at 4.99 while I did get 2 of the other pennied out guides there. Is it system wide the markdown? Or was it just a simple goof ?They had like 10 copies just curious. Apologies to Sef.

Is anyone going to be placing any of their guides on their trade list? I just ask because the trade thread exists but it has lost some momentum. And as guy who has an extra COD MW3 guide I am hopeful that a RDR GOTY makes its way over there. :)

It seems to me that guide trading here is essentially dead. All of these people post about getting multiples of guides yet the trade thread rarely gets any updates. I don't really fault people for getting these guides for flipping but don't post here about getting them if you're not going to make them available for trade to people here.

I try awhile back to help other CAG out, but i still have many old guides (new) that no one wants.

The reason for my lack of updates is that penny guides are usually dead for me.

Best Buy now removes SKUs, and the employees tend to refuse to sell because of that.

Gamestops in my area are typically very diligent about pulling guides and refusing to sell them. (Plus, I'm working now so I can't go crazy on Wednesday mornings to try to beat the pulls.)

I picked up a Spiderman guide but my area has no rdr guides. If anyone has a red dead guide pm me. I only have a handfull of guides left to trade though as I did a guide blowout sale on craigslist lol

Oh and the Gamestop employee told me that his manager said that Gamestop is going to go the digital route for their guides (prob by next year in my mind). Could this be the end of penny guides pretty soon ?

Going through guide collection, so will be making an updates to my list shortly.

Agree with what you've said about people bragging about multiple pickups. I've tried asking some of them if they would consider trading, but got no responses.

Haven't gotten a penny guide since BB cracked down. When I moved a few months ago, I trashed a good lot of older guides just to not have to move them. The others are stacked in the garage now...

Just because you do not get a responce towards your guide inquiry doesn't equate bragging.


No one said it did. The bragging comes in when someone posts "I got 3 Gears of War 3 CE guides today" in this thread. If they're not going to post some of those guides on a TL then that post is essentially useless, particularly when they're talking about the quantity they got.

To address the rest of your post, the point that has been brought up about brag posting really has nothing to do about trade offers and the quality thereof (which I happen to agree with most of what you said). Pooky wasn't talking about people not wanting to trade but about people not responding to a request for a trade, even just to decline. If someone takes a few moments to send you a PM asking about a trade it's no problem at all to be a polite human being and take a minute to respond even if you're not interested.

Keeping guides for personal enjoyment is perfectly fine. That's the whole point of getting them in the first place. If someone gets 2 or more copies of a guide, though, there is no reason to post about it unless they are being made available for trading.
