Twilight Princess was worth double that on eBay FYI. Only reason I know is because I'm thinking about lot selling the Zelda games I have to GC to get rid of them.

Yeah I know. It's just that I don't like selling bad condition disc to my buyers.

Heard that today was the last day to buy Southwest gift cards with credit before they restrict them.

That's a specific and random thing to have heard.  Who told you that?

Picked up a switch bundle from fb marketplace real cheap today. Thinking about trading this switch for the new one and keeping my old one to mod.

Can you transfer saves system to system? I know dark souls doesn’t have cloud saving and I have 10-15 hours in mine.

Yep there's a pretty easy transfer option, just have to have both switches present.

Reports are coming in that half of the Game Informer staff was laid off today...

 

This is either a sign of Gamestop trimming some fat, getting ready for a sale, or the worst case scenario.

 

Edit: 2nd worst case scenario...since worst case scenario is gsdave coming back....

Found Wii Sports at a pawn shop and got him to basically let me have it since it had no case and I was already buying a few other games anyways. I wish I had found it before today lol. Should I just trade it now with the $5 bump or wait for the next time it gets a stealth bump?

 

 

I also got GTA V on 360 but it is disc 2. Will they even take it without disc 1? Either way I'm not worried because he said if any of them don't work, I can bring them back and swap for something else.

Wasn't there a video like last week claiming this was going to happen?

I would trade it in now.

 

No, they won't take it without Disc 1.

Is everyone spending their trade in credit now or waiting to see what happens?

 

I'm thinking about buying a switch.  Should I buy the switch lite or the regular updated one?  What are most people getting?  I have never owned one before.

Do you want to play on your TV?

If that's not a concern of yours then save $100 and get the lite. If you want to have the option get the new revision that just came out.

I've considered getting the newer switch with the longer battery but for me, there's not really a point in spending $100 extra by trading in my current switch for something I play docked 90% of the time. Just depends on how you will play.

 

Now if something comes out about we better hurry and use our credit then I'll probably make the move just so I don't lose it or whatever lol

For what its worth, the kid working at the store today said they have a TON of price changes rolling out tonight. So many that they were given extra hours to do it, which rarely happens. Obviously that doesn't mean all the prices are going down, but it seems like a good chance that a lot of stuff will be cheaper tomorrow. Hopefully the next sale period includes another 4 for 20 or similar.

Hoping for 4 ($19.99 titles) for $40 or a B2G1

Edit: My local store has the new guy close for the 1st time tonight alone. I'm skeptical of what you heard.

#16069 GameRTR

I was gonna trade in the games I got today but now I'm interested in what these price changes will be so I'm gonna wait until tomorrow to go

For a Wednesday? That'd be weird. If true I'm sure most of them wont be advertised so you'll have to go into the store to find them.

Theres already a ton of stuff on sale so I wouldnt be surprised if the price changes is to bring the price of the games back on sale to normal.

So people who don't pay tax with their trade in credit, how do you approach it?  Do you just say,I want to apply some of my credit to the switch or preorder?   OR does it not matter?  It just depends on your state?

Does he still think sales change over on Wednesday? I knew GameStop was behind the times, but damn, that’s bad. No wonder they’re firing people left and right.

So according to Cheapy, all gift cards (not just Southwest) can no longer be bought with credit. Glad I bought some gift cards today

Prob in the minority but sucks about GI losing staff... even though mags are dead and even most gaming new sites seem to be nothing but videos/streams these days, I enjoyed GI. Thought it had some really solid previews and loved the retrospectives. Even in an era when they basically have no competition, I enjoyed the magazine- even thought about keeping my PUR+ membership going because I enjoyed the magazine.
