Anyone know of a good spot to trade in DVD'S? 99% are random anime singles. I just want to get rid of them.

Thanks!


Amazon.com?

Rasputin is another one thats local.

Bad experiences at SF area Gamestop (skip if you're tired of these), buyers beware:

So, I dropped by my local Gamestop today to pick up my Dead Space 2 Collector's Edition preorder. Nope, I got played, they sold it. WTF. This is pretty freakin ridiculous since its only the first day.

Apparently, the DM told the store managers to sell through their collector's edition preorders and said the Palo Alto store had more. I was pretty upset because I preorderd my copy and now had nothing to show for it, I do half my preorders with Gamestop and the other with Amazon, this would've never happened with the 'zon.

Anyways, so the manager called up the store to get one transferred. Nope, zero in stock. To his credit, he apologized and called up almost every store in the area and I forgave him, it wasn't his fault his boss is an idiot. I swear, there is probably a contest where the DM gets money if they sell through in his district. Either way, Gamestops here are shady shady shady, not the first time I've heard this happen south of SF either, its not uncommon for it to happen with big titles like CoD or Reach, but it is definitely the first time it has happened to me with a collector's edition.

Ended up having to drive and pick it up about 15 miles north to another Gamestop where they were also selling through their preordered CE copies also (sorry to you other CE preorder customer, the cycle continues) and the guy behind the counter tried to sell me one that was already opened! Way to take a crap on your customers Gamestop. Incompetence up and down the line, seriously where do they hire these people?

What is the point of preordering at Gamestop if you're just gonna go and sell my preorder before the 1st day is up? ...and you wonder why you're not doing as well business wise. Anyways, this is just a word of warning to you SF Bay Area CAGs. Make sure you get there when the store opens if you're preordering other titles or the 3DS, I'm pretty confident they'll probably be pulling this same exact thing.

Huh?

Anyway, since the link is broken (the exclamation marks are actually part of the link) and Capcom posts WAY too often to their blog, let me save my fellow CAGs the time I just wasted scrolling through their crap:

Sounds like a better bet than that Capcom launch event. Line around the block even 30 minutes after it was scheduled to start, and from the looks of it, more sausage than Oktoberfest.

I heard they had some 3DS demo units at the MvC3 thing. Kind of wished I went.

I'm sure this bit of marketing genius was funded AFTER THQ compensated all the devs at KAOS who crunched for 6 months.

Dunno about you guys, but before I check Metacritic or see what CAGs have to say, my first question about a new game is how's their food truck?

I just want to get my hands on Homefront and play it a bit. I hope they announce early enough what times they'll be there cause I'm traveling from southbay up there to check it out.

Just came back from the Gears of War 3 multiplayer press event in S.F.. It's a prelude to the 6-hour Microsoft Showcase they're holding tomorrow. Cliffy B was there plus a special guest. I can give more details when the embargo lifts tomorrow night.

I wouldn't hold my breath; the poster hasn't exactly been responsive in the past. You can find a writeup from the same outfit at the link below - if you can stand their obnoxious site that evades multiple pop-up blockers:

We're gamers. With backlogs. What is this "sun" you speak of? Sounds dangerous.

I'm loving the rain. It was great waking up this morning to all the rain coming down. Popped in Dead Space Aftermath and chilled in bed resting my tailbone from a weekend in Tahoe.

I think a new game shop opened in downtown Hayward. I saw it on my way to work. 22540 Mission Blvd, right next to (in between?) Chalk It Up billiards.

ive been there they spam craigslist with ads constantly

prices are exactly the same as gamestop new and used, for the most part their selection sucks though

unless you haggle with the guy he will offer you gs tivs or less, im pretty sure hes on here lurking bc hes all over sudden price drops

they do have a disk buffer though which is cool bc its cheaper than the gamestop refurb charges.

theres no way this fool is making money, i bet its the same story as star games which closed up in SF. its a front for money laundering
