I'm not sure whether to consider this or Blazblue for a portable fighter. Fighting games aren't really my favorite genre, but I could possibly get more into it via portability. MK is a little...violent for my tastes, but the sheer volume of content is tempting, though I'm not sure how I'd like the fighting system; I love the art style of Blazblue, but I'm not sure how long it'd last me in a single-player sense and (like with MK) I don't know if I could get into the fighting system.

:-k

by both used & try em out you'll have a better sense of what you want then.

I picked one of these up, but I'm hoping to trade it for Fifa Soccer or Resistance. I'm hitting up all the Craigslist sellers that have either of those games, and hoping to do a swap. I'm gonna do the same thing with Unit 13 tomorrow.

So I picked it up a couple hours ago and really loving it even though I played the hell out of the PS3 version.

I love how they didn't slack off with the Vita port and included the DLC characters from the PS3.

Used a $10 power up reward coupon to get it for $10 "new". Got the last copy so it was gutted.

Gutted = used, no matter how much GS employees try to explain otherwise. Once THEY open it, its used, period. But you still got a good deal, just think of it as $20 used.

I also got the last copy. I have heard about gutted gamestop games before but
Ive never gotten one myself. It took like 5 mins for the clerk to explain to me that
The game had already been opened lol.

I really dont like this but i guess it doesnt matter that much.
Does anyone know if you still get pass codes from gutted gamestop games? Kinda like gamefly?

In theory yes, 100% yes it should have the online pass. A gutted game in Gamestops eyes is new and should include everything a new copy does. If it does NOT have an online pass and should include one, MK Vita does not include one in general just in case you are worried.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

ah ok thx.
Yeah i was worried at the store because I remembered MK on the 360 had an online pass.
Now I understand all the hate on Gamestop a little better.

I have bought gutted games from GS that were complete, but I buy them reluctantly and I inspect them very carefully. I much rather spend $5 more and get it sealed and complete.

Here is another kicker for you. GS sells open games as brand new for full price, but refuses to allow a customer to return a new game that is opened for a refund. Seems like a double standard to me.

WOW DUDE !
i was just thinking the same exact thing.
they will never take a game back that has been open, because its "used" but when they sell a game that is open (guted) they are like, "no man this game is brand new, and i will sell it to you for full price as a new copy" dont get me wrong its not the guy at the register fault, they just do and say what they are told, but still i think guted copys are used in my eyes.

but what i cant understand is, what exactly is a guted copy, why was it open in the first place ? now i know some people that work at GS are allowed to borrow games, so im thinking it might be somthing like that ?
but i really dont know why game stop haves opened games in the first place ? i have bought some guted copys befor, so i do know what it is, but just dont know why.

They open it to display the box on the shelves. They take the game out and leave the box there so you can take the game to the counter when you buy it. I usually asked if they have a sealed copy. If they don't I won't buy simple as that.

Picked up a used copy for $13.XX. Got an additional 20% using a "birthday coupon" that GS emailed. Better yet, the manager couldn't get the code to work and had to do an override and so my coupon code is still valid for my next used game purchase.

But generally they have just 1 display copy which should suggest that there's several sealed copies in the back.

Blazblue has the same if not more single player content in it than MK, so if the style interests you more, get Blazblue.

I thought the deal was only for this Saturday, but I guess you're safe to wait until that day at least.
