But what about the family, dog, job, social life... was it all worth the sacrifice?!?

 

 

 

Yes. I'm all aboard the bing train.  I pity the fool who isn't.

Actually it only takes me about 2 1/2 minutes a day , to do all my daily edge/pc and mobile, daily quiz.   

Well worth it for free xbox live,game pass and xbox credit.

Go on Bing/XBox Rewards>Do searches/tasks>Get Points. Can get somewhere around $10-$15 in Microsoft/XBox Gift Cards in a month if you choose to spend it on that.

Picked up Xenoverse 2, Lumines based on recommendations and gameplay vids, and spent the last day getting enough points for another 10 dollar reward to grab Shovel Knight, because The Baz is bringing the storm! I'm happy with these results. Now to start saving up again for the next big drop, probably in a month or 2 in the summer sale.

It only counts as one purchase towards the 2500 point Movies/TV Punchcard.


Have we figured out if they transfer to Movies Anywhere yet?

I don't think this was posted yet. Gamestop is testing a huge nerf to their Pro membership thing, rolling out next month. Instead of 10% of used games you will now get a monthly $5 coupon, while the price is going up to $20 a year. They made a statement saying "consumer research" said the coupon is a more popular choice for most of the people with the card. I have a hard time believing that since you can literally save more than $5 with a single recent used game that's priced at $55. Maybe if you factor in all the people that get upgraded without caring during a large trade by a clerk trying to boost their metrics.

It seems like it's looking worse for the company every month or so at this point.


I’m glad I’m going to let mine expire. My main reason for it was for Game Informer but it is steadily getting worse and worse. I really miss good video game magazines. I barely buy anything at GameStop anymore. After dealing with terrible customer service from them with a bad batch of Xbox s bundles that ended up me getting an X, I’ll never buy consoles or games from them again.

Radiant Silvergun and Ikaruga on sale, nice, as well as Triggerheart Exelica. LOVE THE SHOOT EM UPS!

 

Going through the 360 list, I completely forgot how much I played Braid, Fable II Pub Games (way too much), Geometry Wars 2, even Ticket To Ride!  Shadowrun online multiplayer was fun as heck too.

 

 

And for Lumines Live, it does have alot of DLC stuff, but enjoyable without.  Lumines Remastered has DLC but only on ps4 and steam. Don't let those 3-4 "extras" stop you from getting Lumines Live!

 

(I had to boot up my unplayed Remastered xbox version to double-check and see if they offered the digital deluxe in the game's menu, they do not).

Since the movies are Sony movies, they should transfer to your MA collection.

A comment from blu-ray.com:

Reports from sd are saying both are porting into Movies Anywhere as UHD too.

Although there are reports saying if you own either one in HD, it won't upgrade, nor will it allow you to purchase the combo pack if you own both in HD.

I haven’t been a fan of GameStop in quite some time, but I did like Game Informer back when I used to get it regularly (although it’s been probably 8-10 years already). However, I don’t know if this is the norm, but the few times I’ve wanted an issue the last couple years, I’ve been able to walk in and get one for free. I usually ask how much and the clerk just says, “Oh, we give those away, no problem.” I think I only did it for Destiny 1 covers and the Breath of the Wild one, but if you’re only in it for the mag and don’t care about shopping there, that’s always an option.

I think it depends on who’s running the counter but I’ve noticed they don’t really care about the copies in the store either. I’ve been in there before and asked them if it was the current issue and they’ve told me “yeah, if you haven’t gotten yours go ahead and take one.” They don’t even check to see if I’ve had the paid membership. The magazine has occasional good articles but overall it’s been heading downhill. I’m not paying $20 for that.

Why do I see a list of only five games?

I personally love Gamestop. I always go in for the Buy 2, Get 1 Free promotions, look for games that are $20 or less, and end up spending around $10 (if not less) per game in savings that way.  Been reading Game Informer for years and like catching up on news I may have missed. I also like their Top 10's, The Good/Bad/Ugly, and Retro sections. It also helps that they are the closest store to where I live to get video games.

 

My local Gamestop has always been good/great. One time I went in to get Resident Evil 0 and 1 Xbox edition and they were out of it even though their on hand count said they had it.  I asked if another store had it and the clerk said they did. So he called a store a few miles away to confirm they had it, put it on hold ...... and drove to get the game for me. I didn't ask for him to do it but he insisted to make up for the error. About 10 minutes later, he came back with game in hand and I was on my way.

 

Obviously not every store is like that. I've had occasions where the disc was wrong/didn't work or the condition of the case was crappy (I once had a booklet that looked like it was out in the sun and falling apart) and of course long lines. It definitely helps to look around and realize some locations/clerks are better than others.

My location was awesome, too. Which, of course means they had to go and close it!

That’s a nice list. Glad I didn’t pick up Survive for $8 from Amazon. Curious to try that trash, lol.

I only have the first Banner Saga so nice to get the second. Void Bastards is the one I’m looking forward to the most.

Hadn't heard of Void Bastards, but it's launching on 5/29 on PC, and GP gets it free. 

 

 

A 'strategy shooter' from folks who worked on Bioshock? I'm definitely interested.

If they look slightly wet it’s because I just cleaned them with baby wipes. The red one is what I mostly use on my upstairs Xbox One fatty on a 720p tv. The grey/green one is my go to on my bigger downstairs tv on the Xbox One X.

From reading, it sounds like they are doing that to appeal to the collectible collectors who have no reason to purchase the Pro membership. But, with this new change, its basically, pay 20 and get a POP half off once a month.  
From that perspective, it makes sense.
Plus, the gamers arent hurt either since the 5.00 coupon is good for anything so even new games would get discounted. 
Is this as good as the Elite Pro--Nope.
Is this as good as regular Pro?  I think it truly depends on how often you go in and for me, the 5/month would be a better deal IF it lasted more than a month OR price was 15 still.  

Not certain if I will re-up when my time is done but the more I think about it, I like the discount being on everything and not just games.
