You drove 30 miles for Job Simulator?

I grew up in Los Angeles, and 30 miles was probably an average drive to most places, especially import gaming shops. Now having lived in Las Vegas 23 years, I now bitch about a 7 mile drive. LOL

Got there at open and snagged it before they ever got to cataloging the game. Only 30 miles from me. Thank you!!!

Store transfer.

Store transfer.

GameStop will store transfer? I wouldn't risk it on a title with only 20 copies available across every GameStop in the US

It's a $45 minimum title used on eBay, why not go for it

Worked for me in every case except for a cheap PS3 game I wanted to rent. YMMV with store that sends it.

 

Oh and if you had to wait this long without picking it up for it to get this scarce you already risked it to begin with haha.

Holy Shit, and that's not even the whole bundle, WTF!?

 

A few months ago I was doing some organizing, and found out my copy's box had gotten smashed. Of course out of tons of games, CE and otherwise, probably the most expensive game I had was the one to get damaged. I even contacted NISA to see if they had any empty boxes, as they are pretty good about that.

 

Sadly it had been to long, and they didn't have anymore extras, but now I don't feel that bad, as I could probably still get close to top dollar, especially if the game alone sealed is pulling in that kind of money.

 

BTW, congrats on the win, but maybe I should be damning you instead. LOL

If I'd known you had a copy, then I would've bought it off of you lol.

Not sure if anyone has been on the lookout for these, but I recently visited a GS locally & saw that they had 1 used copy each of Max & The Curse of Brotherhood NTSC & Surf World Tour NTSC (both published by Wired Productions). 

 

I never seen these in the wild new or used so I picked them up more out of curiosity than anything else.  Reminded me of finding a used copy of Earthlock for the PS4 at Gamestop six months ago & wondering where the hell this game came from...

No but I have almost every Neptunia Limited Edition US release sealed except Megadimension Neptunia VII, I missed out on that one.

Speaking of Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, anyone know why Amazon appears to have two legitimate listings for it?

 

This is the first one, the one that came out a few months ago where the list price was $19.99.  Now there is just a 3rd party selling it for $29.99:

 

https://www.amazon.c... of brotherhood

 

Then there is this listing, which is listed as a preorder to launch 4/24.  Appears to be from the publisher Wired Productions and the list price is $29.99.  Since Amazon doesn't usually list imports as preorders I am assuming this is also a R1 ESRB-rated game:

Ar Nosurge CE is $300? I think it was around $200 last I heard. I'll be dumping mine when I get the chance. Lost interest when I heard that it was easy anyway.

I'm not sure if it is, but I have seen Amazon list imports as pre-orders in the past when it comes to movies/cds.  Never seen it for a video game, but it has happened with other media before.  Plus, in this case I have no idea why they would bother offering a pre-order for an import that already has a U.S. release.  The pre-orders I've seen for movies/cds were for stuff that had no U.S. release.

I bought this from Amazon (Amazon as seller) and it arrived right before the listing disappeared and become the 3rd party $29.99 seller. It had gone to a "More on the Way!" type listing, and I kicked myself for hesitating, and bought it. Waiting two weeks for it to come back in stock and ship.

 

Aaaaand, it was a European release that arrived.  :-|  Since they haven't updated to indicate they had more in stock, I can't seem to get it replaced with a proper US release. Ugh.

Yes, I drove 80 minutes total for the sole purpose of acquiring the ability to squirt mustard all over the place without cleaning up. People drive further and pay more to squirt lots of things.

I ordered my copy when it was first listed (I enjoyed it on Xbox). I received my copy a few weeks ago and it's the ESRB US release.

I should have done that. I was just a little irked that they listed it quickly and post dated the release date to not give the 20% off. Spent too long hoping Best Buy would pick it up that I missed the first window. Live and learn, I guess.

I usually jump on preorders if on amazon since you don't have to pay til they ship anyways, I just wish amazon had an easier way to see all of your upcoming orders before they charge to your account

Not sure if mentioned yet but a UK company called Super Rare Games popped up with their first Switch limited game.  It's Human: Fall Flat with 5000 copies for  £24.99.  

 

https://superraregam...=10533959827499

 

Thank goodness I'm not a fan of the game and am resisting anything but games I'm hyped for on the Switch.
