I wont buy 3DS games or Vita games without the cases. Another reason I rarely buy from GS.

personal recommendations on exactly $14.99 stuff that everyone and their mom probably hasn't played:

[DS] Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 - monster recruiting/breeding RPG, very addictive breeding system

 

[PS4] Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below - Action RPG hack and slash mixed with tower defense

 

[DS] Dragon Quest IV- old school turn based RPG, each chapter of this game focuses on a different set of characters and then they all come together and meet up later in the game.

 

[DS] Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime - Zelda like gameplay along with "tank battles" which I don't really have a comparison for, but its plenty fun and lighthearted

[3DS] Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor (1 and 2 for 3DS) - Tactical RPG, branching story paths based on choices you make in dialogue even more so than most SMT games

I did pick up Dragon Quest Heroes, and Onechanbara. But I had some trouble finding any other games I wanted at all, let alone in stock. But I saw that ClaDun Returns was $10 so I went for that.

Any Switch games that available for 3 for $25... lol

I took a quick look since I knew it'd be short; the sum total of available games is Has Been Heroes, Poi: Explorer Edition, Aqua Moto Racing Utopia, and Snow Moto Racing Freedom. Of those, only Has Been gets you the full savings. The first two are decent but available on other platforms, and in particular I think Has Been benefits from a keyboard and mouse.

 

Here's a link in the unlikely event anything else drops below $15:

Thank you for the effort. I really appreciate it. It's for my 5 years old daughter.

Question: if I were to use say, a $15 reward cert on this deal, would it work out overall? I still have Elite, so the price would drop to around $20 or so for all 3 games. Just not sure if the full amount would be taken off, or not. The wording states: "Valid toward the purchase of one single in-store and in-stock pre-owned item only." so not sure how that plays out when buying something less then $15 per item (after PUR).

You answered your own question. It works on 1 item only and you're buying 3 items. Certs don't work on overall price.

Got it. So instead, if I went the $5 and $10 cert route (since they won't take more than one of the same denomination on the same transaction), it would make one game completely free, but I'd lose out on a few bucks that way. Just trying to minimize my cost overall.

Just stopped by on my lunch and ended up walking out with the following.

 

RPG Maker FES (3DS), Senran Kagura Deep Crimson 2 (3DS), Agents of Mayhem (PS4), and I also picked up Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku separately because it was like $7 after the Elite Pro discount. Once I am done working today I think I will hit up the other Gamestop near me and see what they have.

If anyone is looking a RPG fix on PS3, Tales of Xillia 1 & 2 along with Symphonia Chronicles are good recommendations that are $14.99 each.  As you'd essentially get 4 RPGs for $25, as Symphonia Chronicles has the original PS2/GC game and the Wii sequel on it.

What about the Atelier PS3 games? Any of those worth buying? Also looking at Ar Tonelico Qoga and The Guided Fate Paradox. The only weeb PS3 games I own are the Disgaea games.

The Atelier games seem to have a love or hate feeling on those games, as some think they're just plain boring.   As they don't have no epic story(like save the world) and the game focuses more on gathering items.  I've tried the Artland Trilogy and Ayesha and couldn't get into any of them.  Watch video walkthroughs on Youtube of the Atelier games, that should tell you if you'll like it or not.

 

Ar Tonelico is another good one, although it uses the visual novel style for dialogue a lot.  It also uses a combat system similar to the "Tales of" series.     As for Guided Fate Paradox, never played it, but have heard it's pretty boring.

Be careful, sometimes the certs take the dollar amount off of the cheapest item.  In this case that would be $0. Save your certs for a non-sale.  With elite pro the games were ~6.66 each, you don't get that money back from the $10 cert.

Seems that way for the vita section, as well.

Thanks to the guy who posted about Raiden V. That pushed me over the edge when a GS close by had it with case and soundtrack. I also snagged Earth Defense Force 2 for the Vita and Shadow Tactics on the XB1, both also with cases. All for $20. Pretty stocked to toss those in the collection.

This is a great deal, if your Gamestops have any selection. I live in a 2 GS town and can get some PS3 games or the Show 17 for ps4. That's about it. The Vita selection is laughable here.

How is alien isolation?

Was thinking of j star victory for PS3. Is there any differences between PS3 over PS4 besides graphics?

Kinda difficult to get some of the PS3 games.

Is metal gear legacy collection PS3 the same as metal gear he collection on disc? Got metal gear solid 4 already.

Is the promotion based on the "regular" used price or the power up rewards used price?  If I grabbed some 3ds games that are "regular" preowned at $17.99, my elite pro will bring it down to ~$14.32 meeting the price threshold for the promo.  Just curious, I'm guessing probably not but it would be pretty sweet if it worked

Really appreciate the heads up on this deal and the game suggestions.  I grabbed 3 of the games that have already been mentioned here that I have been interested in for a while.

 

Basically got 3 games for the same price I was considering paying for just 1 of these not that long ago.
