Oh, well, if you say so then it must be true.

 

RIP Gamestop




#14272749 Japanese Niche Games Deals & Discussion Thread 4.0

Posted by Squarehard on 17 March 2020 - 10:23 PM

Shut in and bored, it was a good time to start another project.

 

Decided to build myself a little "colleseum" using PS4, Vita, and Switch games.

 

Won't you join me?

#14270220 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Squarehard on 08 March 2020 - 01:57 AM

Wouldn't be too surprising. I mean, at the end of the day, it's a box with a fake cart... not a great value. Only made for suckers like me. I think it was pretty similar with the Seven Sirens, they had a ton left and that one was more appealing since it was a new/unreleased game and a bigger nostalgia factor seeing it for the first time. 

Nostalgia is expensive, suckers are cheap.

Any word on stores in the Bay Area closing this round? Like East Bay area?

None in the Tri-Valley from the information I've collected, at least not this round, though the San Ramon one did get ousted towards the start of this.

Arguing about who was right about the closures is worse than the closures themselves.

Slight update since the last one.

 

Started to run out of space for PS4 games, so had to re-shift things around...again.

#14267809 The Official CAG 2020 Pick-Ups Thread

Posted by Squarehard on 29 February 2020 - 01:57 AM

Well, as February comes to a close, time to post my pick-ups and arrivals from February.

 

A bit more than I thought I'd end up with, especially after I told myself to slow down after January, so this time, I really will slow down in March...or try my best to...

#14267739 Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden - Switch $9.99 New/$8.99 Used

Posted by Squarehard on 28 February 2020 - 10:02 PM

Why did they raise the price? I just grabbed a pre owned copy on Monday and they were listed at $7.99.

The Switch wasn't at that price, only the PS4 and XB1 versions as I recall.

#14267241 Any good retro stores in the bay area?

Posted by Squarehard on 26 February 2020 - 11:07 PM

There used to be a couple of good ones towards Pittsburg/Antioch, but they both closed down recently, so now it's mostly just Phoenix Games in this area for retro gaming needs.

 

You can also try Half Price Books in Concord, as they will have some retro games. While the selection isn't huge, but there may be a thing here and there that might be of interest.

 

If you want some recommendations for a Japan hobby/figures shop, you can Toyslogic in Concord as well, and have a decent selection, albeit, not a typical storefront, and the set-up is similar to like shopping at a very large store front at a convention, but with larger stock of things. Kind of neat if you're interested in that stuff.




#14265218 The Gamestop Thread

Does anyone know how New converted to pre-owned works? I'm guessing they need to actually apply the pre owned sticker since New/pre-owned should have different SKUs and pricing? Asking because yesterday I saw KH III deluxe edition new for $60 or whatever. I asked if it was new and not pre-owned because I just bought a "pre-owned" one for $15. She said yeah it's new and I just let it be because I felt like even if she scanned it it would still show up as new.

Although I bought a PS4 one and this was XBONE so not sure of both were converted to pre-owned. Would kinda suck if I missed out on a deal cause they didn't get the memo from corporate.

It will be tagged as pre-owned.

 

Gamestop gets a list everyday of price changes, and employees are supposed to go through and adjust them as such. Depending on your store, and if the employees are lazy or not, this may impact whether or not you are seeing converted games as often or not.

 

Both new and pre-owned skus can be active at same time, but whether or not corporate tells them to convert new copies to pre-owned will be up to each store to make sure it's done.

Square you should change the title of the thread to "Limited Run Games Thread - You'll get your Fuck eventually"

There, you got your title change, relatively speaking.

First time they've had a valid excuse, and all it took was a global disease epidemic.

 

Honestly, the most LRG thing that could've ever happened to LRG.

Square was making a joke implying that the backlog shipping log is already "made up" or fiction with a tongue in cheek comment is all, I got you Square.
