If anyone is looking to PM BB's 3DS XL price for a MK 7 3DS XL bundle, the Walmart's in Arnold, Lake St. Louis, Eureka, & on West Florissant Ave. all have units left.

Arnold & LSL have at least 4, Eureka has 2, and West Florissant has 1-3.

Would anyone be interested in buying a huge collection of PS3 games? I'm trying to get rid of them all. Some are a bit old, but it's 78 games so you should easily find a bunch you like. Amazon prices at $184.90 to trade in, but it'd be a lot easier for me (and you) to just sell it to someone locally for cash. So I can part with them for $180. If anyone is interested, PM me and I can send you the full list.

Just bought a NES console on eBay. Does anyone know a place in St. Louis that sells old NES games without breaking the bank?

Well obvious answers are vintage stock & slackers, but I haven't bought old school games in ages so no idea if they are reasonable.

Bodachs Games in Arnold is usually pretty reasonable (although is VStock sometimes better for some obscure games since they don't always know how to price stuff). There's a GameXChange in Oakville. There's also a couple stores in Union, MO (GameOver and Game Depot).

You can also try flea markets. They are usually the most reasonable and the most fun.

Go with Bodach's as VStock doesn't allow returns so if you get a lemon you're screwed. Most of his NES games are under $10 and all the boxed or higher end ones are in a seperate display.

Bodach's is doing a B2G1F on PS2 games currently. No current end date on the promotion.

That's not true at all. I've done a return twice there without issue.

Well I have friends had returns denied on scratched or missing disks, & defective guitars.

I was able to return a NES game and a SNES game without issue. They gave me a straight up refund. They must have gotten a shitty employee because that's not the norm there.

On the missing disk, my friend wanted a full refund and he had to argue with them to get a store credit only refund. This was when they first opened a year or so ago.

And I think he didn't even leave the store before finding the case had no game.

Unless anyone wants one of the 2 remaining copies of Valkyria Chronicles 2 on PSP for $15, Diablo 2 BC or WoW Cataclysm for $12, or Pilotwings/Steel Diver for 3DS for $15 then the High Ridge KMart is cleared out of anything good except for 1 lone first print run Vita (the one with the ATT promotion card it in but not Little Deviants) for $180.

All other systems are already sold.

Eh I'll probably just rent it. I heard it's well done but massively depressing. I play games to have fun as odd as that sounds...

STL GS locations are sold out of Day 1 XB1 systems. If you want a PS4 preorder in store then you better get there before open tomorrow. Many stores are opening an hour early b/c of anticipated demand.

Preordered in full a PS4 at the U City GameStop today. They said they could only accept probably 2 more preorders.

Yeah PS4 preorders have been slower but each store has more PS4's available than XB1's. Looks like possibly those rumors about MS having problems pressing memory chips may be accurate.

Oh my god I am never buying from the Vstock in Mid rivers again. I bought a Wii U pro-controller and the clerk mocked my choice of console telling me that he actively tells people to not purchase a Wii U. Clearly I am a customer who has one, you are a massive douche,

I would go work to get that guy written up/fired since that's ridiculous behavior for anyone to do at a retail store.

Wow, if I wanted fanboy-ism out of my retail checkout, I will just buy online.

Can anyone think of a place in-town that might buy a bunch of Xbox 360 faceplates for the first revision 360?

 

I have a number of them I'd like to get rid of/sell off and haven't had much luck in thinking of somewhere that might take them off of my hands.

VStock sells them but I'm sure they give almost nothing for them.

If any of them are rarer, then how about GameGavel.com?

Was anybody able to get the Scarlet Ninjini this weekend? The few Gamestops I went to this weekend didn't seem to even get it in. 

 

I was able to pick up the Polar Whirlwind.

Fenton had them but sold out in the first hour. Had 30 person line waiting for open.

Peace out. Where you going?


Fenton GS is out of XB1 as is most of STL, while they still have PS4 preorders available.

Fenton GS has a limited amount of XB1 preorders available & ps4 preorders are available until Sony tells GS to stop.

Heading to NJ/NYC Metro area.  Love Saint Louis but I've always been a traveler.  Can't say in one area for that long, get restless.
