Not again, WHD.  You won't get me to buy another copy of Seaman to only get the game... 

 

Guess I won't be picking that up, then.

Wow, I missed a fair amount but for the best.

 

Just got my GoW CE and it's OK I guess.  Not as impressed as I thought I would be.  Statue looks like it was never taken out of the plastic, steelbook is in decent shape but there's a scrape on the part you pull on to open it.  It also doesn't really want to close again very well.  No soundtrack too.  Probably going to look at it a little closer later but at this point probably going to be a return.

Soundtrack is digital I think.


I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

Have you tried the vouchers?  I think that is the meaty part of the CE since it has future the DLC included and the other stuff.  

Usually GoW games don't go down too much in price until a long time.  You can find GOW III for $10 used on GS now after 3 years of release.  

Can I ask what you were expecting or why didn't you like it for the price?

I agree. From the sounds of it, it seems like a near ideal situation. The statue was brand new and the steelbook only had one scratch on it. That sounds pretty much like a win.

I think the earliest I've seen in my 9 years of BF madness has been two weeks prior to BF. Maybe three?

IIRC, they start to appear around mid-to-late October...I think.

They must have gotten a physical warehouse there or they passed legislation. Unfortunately Florida is getting a stupid warehouse in exchange for 3k minimum wage jobs so hooray? Newegg will be the last place to get electronics without tax I guess.

You should expect things to be worn, unless you want to get banned for too many returns, lower your standards, don't expect everything to be perfect and flawless, and "new" even though it said acceptable etc.

Just be grateful that sales tax is only 5-6% in Virginia compared to the 9% in LA. :(

Yes. It's 9% in most GameStops and 7.5% on Amazon for us and gift credit is charged as well, so there's no way around it.

 

So...

 

Quit bitching about your low sales tax.

8% at my gamestop, but it's pretty cool that PUR cancels out tax.

Amazon doesn't charge tax when you buy from another user though, I think.

You have too high expectations. Especially for the price. Just be a hoarder and toss it in your collection and move forward. Or buy it again later for the same price because you will along with everything else at AWD.  ;)

Over the summer, I went to some other GameStops with lower sales taxes. They were based on cities. The cities in Central California have lower sales taxes. Amazon doesn't charge sales tax when buying from a seller outside your state whose items aren't fulfilled by Amazon.

Does anyone have any proof that Amazon actually bans people for too many returns or getting too many credits? I've seen one topic on here, like 3 years ago, that had one person saying they were banned. That person was unable to provide any proof, but it still set off a firestorm around here. I'd like to see some actual proof of this happening. Something more than scare tactics, please.

There were posts that Amazon sent some members some e-mails regarding their high number of returns, but I don't remember anyone stating an actual ban for it. Of course slidecage does come in here right after that and he claims that Amazon does it despite Customer Service always giving him an insane amount of credit just to avoid talking to him.

Minimum wage is $12.00 per hour?

What??? Damn... never expected FL to get a warehouse... we have one near enough and FL doesn't seem like a good distribution point map-wise
