#12647767 Call of Duty Ghosts: Prestige Edition $22.97 (PS3), $28.97 (360)...

Posted by FunkyDawg on 18 April 2015 - 03:32 PM

I have a PS3 season pass if anyone wants.



For anyone curious the Camera is pretty decent. Obviously you will need to upgrade the microsd card. I was a little confused by the reviews on youtube. My assumption is they are comparing to gopro 3's which obviously this camera isn't. It still is not bad. The attachments are also nice.

My story is a bit interesting. (yes I pre-ordered one wave 1, day 1 but you can never guarantee how walmart ships that) I went last night around 12:10. I actually am sandwiched inbetween two 24-7 Wal-marts within 5-7 minutes from me. I went off a source from r/Texasamiibo that a location had 1 left. No good. The guy told me they only got 4. I went to the other which is a little bit closer to me. There were 3 others waiting at the electronics table. Wal-Mart couldn't find any Mario Party stuff. (including games) Overnight people were a bit of a mess. Stuff was everywhere. They got in a big box full of Megaman. There was also a random box full of power adapters and Ps4 games. I waited around 20 minutes before everyone there just gave up.


Went back this morning around 8:03. Eletronics employee for the morning had just gotten in a few minutes before. Low and behold. Golden Mario. I picked it up there were 2 left. I believe they got 8 but have been picked off slowly over the morning.  


Frisco, Texas on Preston if anyone is interested.

Same here. I ordered when they first went live and just got the email stating the release has been delayed until 4/8.

Same here. Same exact email and was also apart of the very first wave of pre-orders.

So the day is winding down. I got a good amount. Mega Man/Sonic/Toon Link for $35.07, Donkey Kong for $10.82 and ordered me a Shulk. Not bad. It's time to focus on 2/20. With that being said, who is getting what on the 20th supposedly?

Just Meta Knight now. I secured Shulk last night with that 5/1 Gamestop stuff. Picked up Ike on Target.com a bit ago and got DeDeDe, Sonic and Iron(Mega) Man this morning at TRU. Good day.

#12456623 Amiibos Currently Available and for Pre-order. Wave 4 announced *Do not post...

Posted by FunkyDawg on 30 January 2015 - 04:51 PM

Got to my TRU about 20 minutes before they opened. There were 6 guys in front of me. All adults minus one that looked like they were in high school who got their first. 


Our store only got 4 Lucario so obviously I didn't manage to get one. 



However, I did end up getting Sheik and Toon Link which were still in the box. While everyone was focused on the exclusive I picked up the others. 



The store in total got 8 Bowsers, 4 Toon Link, 4 Sheik and 4 Lucario.

The best thing I can relate this too outside of videogames is collecting figures. I collect Transformers Takara MPs and Hot Toys that cost $180-200 at retail. With the Hot Toys, they may revisit a figure with the same mold but the box is different or it comes with different accessories, but even if a figure looks better after several versions, the first release always goes for the most as it is the first issue for that character. The diehard collectors want a first issue MP and Takara always reissues popular figures and may sometimes add an accessory, but most times it is the same figure with the same box. The biggest difference is something minor like production date on the back and just having something like 2014 instead of 2015 is enough to make a bump in demand. Just like American collectors are so anal and want a U.S. specific Amiibo with no difference in figure other than bilingual verbiage on the back of the box. If the people were complaining just to complete their collection, they could have easily completed their collections through the European Amazon retailers. People just want a specific 1st release US Amiibo and even though reissues may hurt resellers profit wise, which they deserve, the demand will still be there for the 1st release versions.

I agree with this. My assumption is they will either use the same cardboard as the normal US first release OR what I think they will do is advertise games on the 2nd release box. IE: Marth : Code Name STEAM (compatible), Mario Party 10 (compatible) or something to that effect. I know we've heard the side stories of Nintendo/Retailers on the stocking issue. My feeling is they had no idea this would meet such a large demand on both sides. I do agree though, collectors will want the US version. There is a different on the cardboard and collectors of toys are incredibly anal about that stuff.

Off topic: 3ds zelda OoT ever pop up on AWD?

I see it like once every few days. It ranges from 22-28 depending on condition and day it's posted. I got one about a month ago for $24 VG condition.

Well put. People just expect triple AAA titles from October and November of this year to be $20 or less on BF. Which is a ridiculous expectation.

Yeah no way that happens. $25-35 is the realistic expectation.


Usually 2014 EA Sports games, 2k14 are about $25-30 

There is usually a super popular game released the previous month at $35  and a few others in the same range or just a bit cheaper.


The $10-20 are usually games released that year but not in the fall time. Maybe summer games or before. 


Anyways, thanks OP for the list. Good stuff :D

#11055648 The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD Wii U Limited Edition Bundle - Pre-Order

Posted by FunkyDawg on 12 September 2013 - 05:27 PM

I don't own a Wii U so Zelda edition + price drop + WW remake = sold. I'm not sure what I'd do if I were in the same boat as most that already own one. I didn't bite on the Zelda edition 3ds because I had my launch one. I did though, months after the XL came out upgrade from my original. This is one of those tough decisions because you know it's Zelda it will probably be hard to come by unless you preorder. I am not a huge Zelda fanboy like others but I do agree they missed big time on adding something nice to the physical console. The gamepad though is awesome.
