Five Below $5 games

The most interesting games I ever saw there were Pokemon Mini Handheld systems for $5 and extra game cartridges for $4. That was probably around 12 years ago. I had never seen the system or games for sale in any non online store before and it was a fun impulse buy.

I've heard Extinction was pretty terrible. I was interested because it seemed like a fun premise, but I couldn't find one positive opinion on it.

I mean... it's $5 fun.  The best review of it I saw was "I keep hearing this compared to Attack on Titan, so I tried that instead, and it is much better".

 

It's certainly not a challenging game, but it is a bit fun to hack off a giant ogre's leg so you can reach it's head.

those games are great for wounded warriors sitting in hospitals doing nothing but playing old games.  We bought a bunch for the soldiers and they were thrilled.

Sure, but Destiny 2 is free to play now. There is no offline component so all those discs do is save on some bandwidth.

A bizarre sight at Five Below for me yesterday. They had Darksiders 2 for the Xbox 360, but it was $5.55. It appears that quite a few things in the store were now priced at $5.55. This is the first time i have ever seen anything priced above $5 there.

That's unusual? About half the stuff at my store is $5.55.

They've been adding a section for items going up to $10.  All of the stores in my city have it now, with things like phone chargers and headsets around the $7 mark.  Games are mostly 7 or 10.

They had Pokemon Minis at Five below or was it something else similar? They are pretty expensive now.

It was the handheld system with Pokemon Party Mini included.

The Five Below in Winston Salem (beside Target) had Mad Max X1 and Shadows of War Definitive for X1 for 10.00 yesterday.

I’d have grabbed Mad Max for the PS4 but this store shows no love for that system.

I went to the Five Below today to pick up a couple of pez dispenser candies for the kids and to my surprise I found a bunch of copies for Darksiders II (Xbox 360) on the shelf. As aforementioned it had a retail price of $5.55 just like some other merchandise was also priced up by a few cents higher than before.

Before it blew up in price because of the cards inside, amiibo Festival w/ the 2 physical amiibo and 3 cards were priced at $10 and in the back of the store months ago in the above $5 section with chairs, headsets, etc

I found that awhile back as well.  Haven't been to 5 Below since March.

Fallout 4 (PS4) is popping up in some stores now.

I picked up a Super Smash Bros Zero Suit Samus Amiibo today for $5.00 and noticed the Splatoon Inkling boy and girl figures along with Animal Crossing Kicks and Lottie figures (some of which I think have been there before).

 

Also noticed copies of Darksiders II for Xbox 360 and Yokai Watch for 3DS.

Can confirm.

 

I stock at Five Below and put out several boxes of Inklings and ZSS yesterday. Smash amiibo are usually reserved for seasonal/holiday ads, while Animal Crossing come at random intervals. Last time we got a shipment was just prior to New Horizons' release.

I just learned there were a few Five Below in my area, and I stopped by this week -- all I found were Blathers, Tom Nook, and Celeste.  However, I might have to stop by a bit later and check again if this is true.

Selection, quantity and delivery frequencies will vary by store. 

 

How much actually gets put out by the stock team is another factor. If the store doesn't have a lot of staff, they could easily get backed up on freight. Often times, a fair amount of product will be sitting in the backroom. So If you're looking for a specific item and don't see it on the sales floor, don't be afraid to ask an employee to check in the back or pull up inventory.

This is an issue everywhere. Businesses don't want to hire adequate staff. They want to run bare minimum. Walmart is the worst.

This was the selection of Amiibos at my 5 below today.  They also had about 25 copies of Fallout 4 for $5, which I was happy to pick up one of.

Had to go pickup some uniforms for work, and stopped at the downtown philly 5 below and as Dante would say Jackpot!509ffeed820c913e1b9ad42bb96ffb98.jpg
The Samus was the only one I saw, this was the first time I ever saw Triforce heroes and they had plenty, and as a turtles fan from way back for 5 bucks I can give this a shot.

I picked up a couple copies of Triforce Heroes for a buddy and me to play when they first showed up in Five Below, and naturally you need three real people (with three real 3DSes) to play the stupid game MP.

We ended up playing Monster Hunter 3 instead.

No, the immense stupidity about this game is that you can play 1 player with AI partners, or 3 player, but not 2 player with an AI partner.

Is the zero suit Samus a big deal? Like should I be excited to pick one up for $5?
