Gamestop has to do this or else people will just shop on Amazon.   I guess that's the world we live in when you have Amazon whom prices matches all game sales from major retailers, and they are able to skate by in America without having to pay any corporate taxes at all.  It's an unfair system; it's causing most of our brick and mortar stores to close.  It's a joke.

Seriously. Haven't purchased anything at GameStop for atleast 5 years. Selling opened games as new is a joke. Why not give a discount atleast since the seal was broken and it's opened.

Gonna throw a party when they go out of business. I welcome my digital overlords.

What is up with all you guys who don't even shop at Gamestop wanting the store to fail. If you don't like shopping there fine but why even comment. Many of us on here get plenty of deals at Gamestop and for me it's the closest game store within 30 miles. Sometimes they don't have the best policies but they also employ a ton of people, yet you clowns want all these people to lose jobs.

Why do you care how we feel though? No one told you to stop going there. Keep supporting them, donate to them, whatever. It's a forum on the internet and people have different opinions. Did you just discover the internet?

I personally feel that GameStop treats both it's employees and customers like shit so I'm praying for their downfall.

Then block me. I don't know what else to tell you. Good job with the name calling too. Lol. Usually when people can't argue the content they start with the insults.

What's a chud btw?

Hey man, GameStop’s ad still hasn’t been posted yet so I think it’s only fair that we roast them.

Until the deals start next week there’s not much else to talk about anyway, so.....🤷‍♂️

I usually look at Slickdeals and use the keyword "laptop" to get notifications when they go on sale. I've found some great deals through that approach.

Is Best Buy still doing early access to Black Friday deals this year? Anyone have an idea when that usually is (is it like the Sunday before?)?

Sorry if this has been asked many times, haven’t had time to be on this topic in awhile unfortunately.

hey! i started the spreadsheet. definitely want people to be able to make copies. i just took a look on another account and was able to do that. just go to file>make a copy and give it another shot. let me know if you're still having trouble. does anyone else have issues with this?

 

i locked the spreadsheet down because some people were telling me it was getting trolled. i plan on opening it up again once some more black friday ads come through.

 

as for the request to add sorting in, we had that before, but if one person is sorting one way, it effects everyone. so i recommend making a personal copy and then adding sorting to that.

I don't see any option to make a copy.  In fact, there is no "file" menu to even click on from what I can see on my end???  I can screenshot it if you want?

GameStop released their "early deals" ad which is probably really their Black Friday ad with really shitty deals. The only thing I'd want is that yummy white PS4 Pro but with PS5 backwards compatibility I hope it enhances performance of PS4 games instead of just playing them. Still it's just the console with nothing for $300 which isn't much incentive.

 

Unless there is some amazing trade-in offer any of the game deals are going to be similar to everywhere else.

Gamestop teased their ad in a Facebook post. I guess it will come out by sunday.

someone above mentioned that this happens sometimes when there is a certain number of people on the sheet at the same time, and apparently has happened to cag sheets in the past. definitely not something that's being controlled on my end. if anyone knows about any way to prevent this, let me know!

Hopefully someone can help you with your lack of a sense of humor. It was just a joke, bud....a relevant one at that. I don’t care if you guys have smart watches. It’s all in good fun, guy.

it wasn't relevant when we literally said in our posts that we have a phone and which ones we had. It was just an attempt to fish for likes.

I had a laugh after trading in some games at the nearby GS. One employee said she was sick of people asking about their unreleased BF ad

Gamestop is in no place to not just release their add. It's probably too late to get anything out of me. I'm getting the Jedi bundle at Best Buy. Gamestop won't say if that is apart of their sale.

If you're taking about the XB1S Jedi bundle it's in Gamestop's early Black Friday ad that starts this Sunday.

Huh, didnt realize that. With target giving an extra $40 on top however it doesnt really seem worth it.

Yeah, Target is better for most. I'm getting one at Gamestop though, I got $200 worth of Gamestop gift cards for $160 via a offer my local grocery store had.

I've tried using both Chrome and Firefox and I'm not seeing it.  Considering that it's Google Docs and there are other people in this thread that have had problems saving a copy, I'm wondering if it's actually part of the sharing you said you took away b/c of goobers messing it up.  When I open other files in google docs I see the right stuff but yours doesn't have a menu bar and I really doubt that google has issues with "too many people" using a document at once???

Sorry but you’re wrong about that and a google search would easily explain this. Stop being condescending to people doing you a favor.

“Yes, there is a limit. According to Google's user guidelines, a Google Docs file can be shared with up to 200 people or groups (but only 100 people can view it or edit it at the same time).”

I'm not trying to be overly rude.  What you quoted doesn't actually say that the menus go away.  Changing options (as the poster stated) to limit sharing, etc. like he did may have unintentionally caused the menus to disappear.  I have viewed many google docs and viewed these every year for the past few years and this is the first time I've seen that issue.  So again, I wasn't trying to be rude, just pointing out that maybe the options he intentionally disabled accidentally made it where people couldn't view the menus to make a copy.  :)
