i brought a PUR $5 off coupon, and expected to get de blob 2 for $1.49 (after $5 off the 50% price of $6.49). However, the $5 was applied first, then the 50%, so i ended up paying $4.

De Blob 2 is not part of the 50% off sale, all you did was use a $5 discount off its normal price.

I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

The PS3 Version is.

I agree with this as well. Although I've picked up a few more games from this sale but I'm sitting at around $30 spent and I'm having trouble finding anything else worth it.

Finding $74 worth of stuff out of here is quite a feat though well done Grimm haha!

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Well I just got my order from monday and they stuffed all the games into this small bubble mailer and it looked like they played soccer with the package at the post office. All the cases are destroyed were just the slightest touch to the case would make a piece fall off. Im gonna return them all and exchange them for in store copies.

Bringing back Eat Lead and Damnation tomorrow. Just can't bring myself to finish them. I might grab rogue agent since I've heard the dialogue is hilarious, like 50 cent. Otherwise just hoping they have a copy of geometry wars, which I doubt very much.

At My gamestop I have never gotten a destroyed game case compared to the warehouse cases they ship.

Thanks for the initial warning, OP.

I picked up a few games from a couple of Gamestops the other day:

Geo Wars: Galaxies
Onechanbara
Lair
Boom Blox 2

Plus some others not in the sale but cheap. I needed to expand my Wii collection, so thanks!

I'm tempted to go back to see if I can find a few others, like EDF.

Unicorns don't exist.

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Put a Fake Horn on a Horse, and bam. We got a Unicorn in our midst. :lol:

*sigh* I mean in the context of his post. In store copies are as likely to be found as a unicorn. That's what I got from his post.


Not so sure about that. I found instore copies on a lot of items on the list. In fact, I saw a few rows of those that I thought were OOS. Of course, it's YMMV. But it never hurts to check, especially if you have a couple of them a 10 or so minute radius, or when you're out doing errands.

Did you try to buy it or just see the price and run away?

Did you ask them to check the price? None of the games I got were marked.

Cost me 11.50 but sure i'll play each of those games for a few hours to get my moneys worth. All had case and books.

My wife was the who went to the store while she had me on the phone...she asked the employee if they had EDF 2017 Pre-owned and how much it was and they told her $14.99 which she then told them about the website price and they told her "online price is always cheaper." That's Gamestop for me in a nutshell...

While testing the games I recieved today I noticed they sent me the first Call of Juarez instead of Bound by Blood and Enemy Territory:Quake Wars doesnt even work =(. Now I have another reason to go to the store tommorow besides the broken game cases.

Deus ex for 7.50 is a must! Is Homefront worth paying $5 for? I'm also aware that homefront has a online pass.
