I cut my losses, and made one of the Lord of the Rings games my free game, in the buy two get one free Target sale.


Frankly, you're better off getting the GOTY editions anyways. We need to support these nice, complete version releases!

I don't think mine was the game of the year version, but it seems like the ones that people are finding at Dollar Tree are.

My 2x xbox1 and 1x ps4 are regular versions.  The GOTY are extras on disk or codes?

My local dollar tree finally got their movies in. I had given up looking, but a friend told me they had come in and been put next to the cooking utensils for some reason. No games, but I picked up some more movies.

Much like Square-Enix has been doing with their GOTY/Ultimate Editions, it comes with a voucher code to redeem for the GOTY content.  Although it's only the US version that does this, as PAL and Asian versions are 2 disc set w/ one disc containing all the DLC content.

I've seen people on Facebook that are finding the games showing off the game of the year editions. Obviously super YMMV.

I found the other Warner Bros games that I had been looking for at a different Dollar Tree this evening.

 

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War (PS4)

Scribblenauts Showdown (XB)

 

Shadow of War PS4 was a vanilla copy as was the Xbox version that I found at the other store last weekend.

 

I also found the following movies and TV seasons.

 

Bad Milo (Blu-Ray)

Batman and Friends (DVD)

Hobo With a Shotgun (BluRay)

Premature (DVD)

30 Rock - Season 2 (DVD)

The Art of Getting By (DVD)

That 70's Show - Season 4 (DVD)

The Lucy Show - Season 1 (DVD)

The Mod Squad - Season 1 (DVD)

 

Either the people who shop at this Dollar Tree don't give a damn about games or they were completely oblivious to them being there.

My dad offered to go out and look for me tomorrow. I'm still too sick to leave the house, and he's doing something father's day related with my brother.

There are three types of Dollar Trees that I have encountered. Newer stores that always have DVDs, stores that get DVDs once in a while as a store special, and stores that never get DVDs. I find that the stores that never get DVDs 90% of the time are the oldest stores with no freezer section, or ones located in malls, due to high rates of theft. If your store isn't always stocked with DVDs, it is probably one of the special occasion stores, or worse, one of the ancient stores that doesn't even have frozen food. If you have multiple stores in your area (most people do), it would be best for you to search multiple stores, if nothing good is at your local store. Most stores carry the exact same things always, but sometimes they surprise you. This Dollar Tree in the next town is always getting those blind bag figurines, and even got in some Funko Pops once. Sometimes it's worth it to travel a little bit.

Another oddity to point out is that I noticed at least one DVD with a K-Mart dump bin sticker on it. It's possible that the source of these things is from a K-Mart/Sears supply, which might make sense in some of this.

I seem to recall a few years ago there was some chatter/rumors that K-mart was having trouble with game distributors (even before the stream of store closures) due to some financial issues, which resulted in them having a window of time where getting new video game hardware/software stock was difficult.

I wonder if the intended location of this stock had originally been K-Mart's that could no longer receive them and they ended up in a limbo for several months (maybe over a year) before they end up at Dollar Tree. Could explain the lack of variety and of total games, overall.

Didn't Kmart stop carrying games way back in 2014?

Some people on Reddit are still finding the games.

Really wasn't sure if I should make a new thread, or add it to this one. But, people are now finding Cuphead merchandise at the Dollar Tree, like a set of glass cups, and even a pair of socks. Once again, YMMV.
