I wouldn’t bother, I went on a wild goose chase for those a and all I got was sass from an associate. Seems like all the TVs around here have been wiped out since the stimulus checks came out.


Yea they ended up being out of them. I wanted to get out of the house, so worth a drive.

Grabbed Shadow of the Colossus remake on PS4 for $10 a few days ago.  Must've been a new addition as it wasn't with the clearance rack before.  I've been waiting on Wolfenstein 2 to drop below $15 for a few weeks now.

Found some good deals recently at the Walmart:
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - $29.99 - was especially excited about this since its apparently out of print
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3DS - $11
Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3DS - $5
Mario & Luigi BIS - $19.82

Hopefully I’ll find a cheap Metroid Samus Returns today.

Is Mario and Luigi BIS worth it? I feel like $19 is still a bit much, but there is only one left at my WM so I am on the fence.

So you're my competition. I'm in Berea

I agree, Mario & Luigi BIS may have been too much since it’s $30 regular price, but it reviews well so I went for it.
Hoping for a big 3DS game sale sometime soon, like that $15 off sale a while back.

Is Berea in Kentucky? If so I’m nowhere near you, so not to worry :)

You are the first person from Ohio I have met here. I'll try to keep you in mind if I find anything near you.

I think they ment Ohio as there's a Berea in my state.

MSRP on Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is actually $40. As far as 3DS games go not many places seems to have much games anymore and any remaining stock is gradually drying up so personally I wouldn't expect anything beyond random clearance deals from here on out.

Got:

Fallout:NV Ultimate Edition (XB1/360) - $12
Pikmin! (3DS) - $11
Battlechasers (Switch) - $7
Star Fox Zero Guard Bundle (WiiU) - $15
Chaotic Shadow Warriors (Wii) - $9

Overpaid for Star Fox and Shadow Warriors but the first is my first WiiU game and the other is my only sealed Wii game, so I figured why not since I was there. Not sure if the box that both star foxes come in is supposed to be factory sealed or not but this one wasn't and looked like it had been open before, but both games were inside and sealed.

Thanks for the list of drops. Unfortunately, 95% of them are not dropped in my area and the 5% that are are OOS. The one I went to though had TONS of stuff listed as OOS on BS. My store had a few fantasy life's that I wouldve loved to have grabbed but they showed as full price on BS :/.

I've also never seen a clearance sticker on anything video game related ever at walmart. Manually entering in each game at BS when I'm there takes way too long lol.

I'm just across the border. You keep hitting me with all these Cleveland-area cities.

My only two real observances... Melt is so amazing and the movie theater in the Strongsville mall is crazy.

Found Dragon Quest VII (3DS) for $15, woot.
Also went on a hunt for Metroid: Samus Returns. According to brickseek there were 2-3 copies for $11 each, but they were not there, despite digging through everything. I think they had them hidden somewhere lol

When this happens you pull up the barcode on brickseek and have an associate scan it and ask them if they might have it in back. I've gotten many games this way when I haven't found them out on the salesfloor.

Consider yourself lucky then because my experiences with the associates at the stores in my area have generally been that they are either dismissive, too lazy to bother, or both.

I just did this last night. This guy in electronics refused to sell me more than 1 copy of any game. So I purchased 1 of each game I wanted then I went to customer service and asked for a manager. Explained I wanted to purchase more games but the guy said I couldn't. Manager went back to games with me and let me get what I wanted. Sometimes you have to be persistent to get what you want. Not in a dick way either, always be nice until it's time to not be nice! (quote from Roadhouse, I couldn't resist) lol

I could, though for how often I'd have to do it it would be a significant hassle. And I suspect chances are they wouldn't be able to find the items anyway with how messy they seem to be with inventory management and they are probably misplaced and rotting in some obscure spot where one day years from now they will be 'discovered'. Plus don't have any faith that seeking out a manager every time this happened would actually effect any change in the end. For me at least it's night and day between Walmart and Target for example asking to check for (and realistically find) something in the back.

Yea that's not very good advice. Managers are usually more incompetent than the normal associates. The one time I had asked for a manager during the start of the new 2ds xl craze when stores were showing 3+ in stock I waited 10 minutes for one to finally come just to be told "we don't have any". I asked to for him to check in the back, he pulled his mask down, and said "if they aren't on the floor we don't have any".

So that was a waste of time.

Explained I wanted to purchase more games but the guy said I couldn't. Manager went back to games with me and let me get what I wanted. Sometimes you have to be persistent to get what you want.

In this case, I dont blame him. Why do you need two copies of the same game?

I'll often buy multiple copies on good deals for myself and friends, they'll do the same. Of perhaps he collects and wants to play the game too without opening?

There are non nefarious reasons..

I'm guessing you don't think about giving them as gifts to others.

Far more likely that you're using the "I'm giving it to people as gifts" excuse to deny that you're buying multiple copies of a clearance item to resell. This is why almost everyone buys multiples of an item. Most of my friends are gamer nerds, and only one of them ever bought me a video game for ANY occasion. That happened 10 years ago. Spouses and kids can be acceptable if you have nothing else of value to give them, but I don't see friends doing this. Unless you are all exceptionally charitable super nerds who don't have real-world wishes your friends could fulfill, then I call bullshit.

 

Nobody cares who believes who, but don't gang up on this dude with this altruistic nonsense. Know you're in the minority of adults who give their friends physical games instead of favors, useful shit, memories, or booze.
