If you are monitoring what everyone around you is doing on their phones then it sounds like you are the lurker.

Have you ever had someone say "are you taking pictures of me??"  That's my favorite one. 

 

I even laugh when I see other people thinking it.   That's how narcissistic people are these days.  It's like the unfaithful husband whom accuses his wife of cheating.

It's a good question to ask a stranger if the stranger is pointing a camera in your face.  It happens more and more nowadays.  The irony is usually the person with the phone with the camera is taking selfies with it or livestreaming themselves ordering Chipotle or something inane when the person asks if the person is taking pictures of them because they happen to be on the arse end of the narcissism of the person with the phone.

 

All because people think having a phone with a camera on both sides is a necessary function of daily life.

Ice cold take. That was my first time checking since the drops and one dude literally walked up next to me on his phone muttering to himself about clearance games.

I wish that all PS2, Gamecube and Xbox gen games and older went to $1 clearance. Would be worth getting some things

3 left in Parma after I left last night for sure. There were 7 or 8 there on Thursday, so obviously other people know that they stash one or two good electronics clearance items in the corner in between TV mounts lol

Allegedly a nearby store has 23 at 20 dollars somehow.  Haha.

Does an Xbox One S 1TB console for $207 pre-tax sound like a good price guys?

Antonline has an Xbox One S 1TB console for $219.99 w/ free shipping at walmart.com

Found Wii New Super Mario Bros for $1! And somehow there are still Walmarts with 3DS Xenoblade Chronicles in stock. I bit for 40 since they're selling for double that online.

I'd be curious to know the percentage of stores in stock for that if one of you premium brickseekers care to share info.

Checked 4 Walmarts near me, managed to find Wolfenstein New Order for $3. At that same store, i scanned Pokemon Y and it rang up for $3 but I tried scanning other items and when I went to pull it back up, it rang up at full price. Next time I will remember to keep up the deal until I purchase it.

Other Walmarts had stock on these items but no price updated.

I was able to find Fantasy Life and Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask too now.  It's funny how the Pokemon was cleared out of the stores that had them but some still had these titles sitting around for $3.  Oh well, score one for me, I've been waiting for Fantasy Life to go on clearance for years.  It probably didn't help those titles sell that they showed up as limited stock (maybe even out of stock?) on brickseek.

 

Never trust brickseek 100% y'all!

 

Searching Walmart for the games I want to complete my library is like a more rewarding version of Pokemon Go

I have the opposite story...

 

Visited a few walmarts over the weekend as I was traveling. Didn't find anything great until I thought I scored gold at the very last one. I found Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, and Fantasy Life. Originally went there because brickseek showed them as having Smash 3DS too. I was ecstatic! Especially since brickseek showed no stores even stocked these at all. Then I went to buy them and the shitshow began.

 

At first they refused to see them to me as they came up item not found. I politely explained they should be $3 as they were clearance games. People were called, managers came, and ultimately they wanted to make up a price based on the walmart website. In the end I left with nothing, and they refused to even help me find Smash 3DS as "if it isn't on the shelf we don't have it". (which I also proved SO many employees wrong with when they find games 'binned' in the back).

Another story from this past weekend...

 

I called a store last week to check stock of Pokemon Ruby since it was a good quantity (3+). They seemed rather rushed on the phone and told me they didn't have it. Later that same day I called back and someone else checked, said they didn't have it. Now keep in mind this store is over a two hour drive for me, though nearby where I was visiting this past weekend.

 

Over the weekend I visit this particular walmart and man was it a cluster bomb. Quantity still showed 3+ of Pokemon Omega so I hunt down an employee. The first two offer to help, went to find a scanner, then never came back. The third I tracked down at the counter asking for help with a game, said which, and out loud the employee says to a coworker "yo this that guy who called the other day, I already told him we don't got it". At this point I stood my ground and said someone needs to help me find it. 

 

In the end an employee did check the scanner and said they might know where it is. Sure as shit they came back with the game in hand, and the cherry on top was this was the employee who I talked to on the phone the few days prior. Left with a huge smirk on my face.

they ignore you.  they are generally unhelpful and incompetent. 

 

handle them however you'd like.

 

I always start off nice and friendly but then lose patience almost instantly.

I already made that post, and some Walmart employee got pissed off and cursed me out. Not that I care, I mean it's a Walmart employee...

Wow, you must just have an awful Walmart around you because every electronics employee I've talked to has been super helpful and they don't seem to mind if you don't buy it if it doesn't ring up at $3 or whatever it's supposed to be after bothering to get it out of the case.  One even offered to look in the back for a game for me without me asking!

Oh I've had my share of helpful employees. I'm going to be polite and just say this one was in an undesirable area.

Lol a lot of bad asses in here. If I cant find my $3 game I swear Im going to belittle a walmart employee. Lol!!! So tough yet you wait until you get home to type out what you 'should' have done.

The irony here is if they are 'just walmart employees' then you create the image that you are so much better. Yet, you feel the need to throw a temper tantrum about a $3 game. Why? Dont you have a good\better job? Paying a little extra shouldnt be an issue.

I went back to my local Walmart tonight, and they had pulled the 100 or so games that were sitting in the clearance section last week from the sales floor.  I asked the associate at the electronics counter what happened, and she said that they sent them all back to corporate.  I assume this means that they will eventually be sold online or something, but that was perhaps the most asinine thing that I had ever seen...since last week when they overrode the prices on the $3 games to mark them back up to MSRP.
