Wouldn't mind AC:Unity LE. Won't have luck at local stores, so maybe prices at Amazon/eBay will drop a bit.


I'm curious what you buy price is. That guide was $10 all last week.

Or they did what they were supposed to do in a timely manner. That's the most likely scenario. The guy that sold me mine last night said "I was just gonna rip the covers off and toss them, anyway".

Are strategy guides like the most wasteful thing ever? It's not like books have a shelf life of a few months. Maybe they should just print them on demand instead of wasting all the paper and ink.

Not possible. This issue just isn't with books. The same applies to food, clothes, essentially everything sold.

Found two maddens, unfortunately at the strictest store in my area. He would have rung them up for $4.99, but not $.01

Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

Went to several SF Bay Area Peninsula stores over the past 2 days, including San Carlos, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale.

 

All pulled...not a surprise in the least!  I was still able to get at least 1 of everything (other than Madden, which I didn't want) via other means...

That would be a good use!

 

Surprisingly, it currently trades into Amazon for $3.81.

Tried a store today just because I've had luck there before. Got shot down. It's just not worth it to even try anymore for me. It hurts so bad because the taste of free guides is just so unbelievably delicious.

Well got a Smash and Bayonetta 2 guide. The person said he let me take all two Smash Guides but I declined. I finally got penny guides I want thanks Darby.

If two guys are in suits at a Best Buy or something, they might be trained assassins or aliens.

Had no luck with the new guides but a store I've been to many times since January randomly had a Tales of Xillia 2 guide there so I grabbed that.
