Ha! So did I! Right after flippageddon stuff happened, I was learning and learned about BB flips and then to the to Disney cards. Most park expenses and airfare I covered. The hotel I just got cheap though.

If I ever do strike it rich I'm gonna stay w my family at the Grand Californian and have the best trip ever. Someday...

if you ever wanna stay at any of those cheaper just rent people DVC points. We are staying at the Polynesian this coming May and it’s only costing us 2K for eight days.

Let me guess, you're one of those people who says they make $200k+/year.

It's okay to be happy for other people you know. Dont need to crap on their parade if they think that's a respectable amount.

Even if the troll made 200k a year that is still about $65 after taxes an hour. Which is pretty much what this guy made at GameStop in funny money.
I make good money at my job but I do this for fun and because any money that comes from check usually goes in kids college fund or some other bill. This I can make purchases anytime I won’t without caring about what I spend.

confirmed with a DL today that all old pro and elite are going away in spring and switching to the new $5 a month and 10% extra on trades only. They said they will lower prices but ill believe that when i see it.

Nice. Maybe I’ll be cursing at you stuck in traffic on Woodruff Road someday. ;)

God there are a lot cags in Greenville. Must be why the Walmart clearance is gone so quickly.

Freezing, crashing, constantly disconnecting brand new/battery wireless controllers 2 feet from the console with no obstacles, overheating (which has been determined to do with thermal paste issue with the One X). Not saying they all have those issues but after having major probs with 3 straight, I'm likely out until next gen. I'm sure many have had no issues with their X and that's great. But I'm likely not taking anymore chances. Two of those consoles couldn't even get through the initial powering on/sign up without freezing several times.

Of the 3 One X consoles I had major problems with (and returned), 2 were bought in the Fall of 2018. The 3rd was bought 3 months ago. The Shadow of Tomb Raider bundle (the worst offender) constantly would power off at startup, refused to load games at times from brand new disc, and more.

I believe you, I had a friend that went through 3 original wii’s. He’s the only person I’ve ever heard of with them going bad. But he had issues with 3. Sometimes you just get bad luck my friend.

Been here since 2003 , I remember when this place was all corn fields .

(in my best dana carvey voice)I remember when i first got here all i had was my gamecube, ps2 and original xbox. not this newfangled 48k TV 2 gigawatt hard drive mess you kids play. Your controllers had long cords and your memory cards plugged into the system, and if you wanted to turn on the system you had to stand up. If there was a new map or character for a game you didn't download a patch, you got your ass over to gamecrazy and bought the damn new version. 

 

That's the way it was and we liked it!

Why is everyone acting like this is the first time GameStop has done this.
Most b2g1 with Csac they tank values. They go back up after the promos are over. Hold the games for two weeks and you are fine. If you paid any attention(even badly) you know what games always have the high values. When they need trade ins in January they’ll go back up to normal

Or in the case of Fallout 76 where it drops $30 two weeks later lol


Yeah but spend $30 on a bad meal and I don’t care but spend $10 too much on a video game I am distraught.

Crazy mental block, kinda of like how I can go out spend $50 on on a steak get full and leave part of it but the $7 beer I have to finish!

There simply is no way GameStop will around in 2025. Physical games will barely be around in 2025. At that point, people will be nostalgic about being able to download and "own" their digital games, instead of just having streaming licenses.

Where are valuable brands like: Blockbuster, Toys R Us, RadioShack, Circuit City, Sam Goody, etc?

The writing is on the wall. I hope the employees get out while they can. I'm not trying to be a contrarian, but it's just the reality of how things for GameStop are going. They will be bought out, stripped down, squeezed dry, and buried.

Digital books killed Barnes and noble
Streaming would kill Sirius radio and vinyl sales
Both of the are doing well just smaller scale.

Streaming video games is still not an option in the vast majority of the county. I doubt the infrastructure of the Internet will be that much better in rural areas in 2025.

Is buying games and immediately selling back something that frown upon by employees? Is it it a trade they will reject (I assume they have the discretion to reject any trade they want). My GCU ended so am giving the GameStop/ trading method so am new to this. I have 4 games towards the six game credit bump, and I was thinking of just buying (using already existing credit) two copies of fifa 18 and trading back in order to reach the 6 game threshold.

Two words “low profile” what ever you do try to keep one and you will be able to flip years not weeks.

Since everyone is talking kids I’ll join in.

I have been trying to play Zelda botw but my 5 year old loves it so every time I turn it on he asks for the controller. I always give it to him and he plays for a while until he gets to a tough boss. So yesterday he says daddy I need help and he handed me the switch with 1 heart left. I look in inventory and I have no food left! I ask him where it all went and he says “Link was really hungry” how can you even be mad about that!

I will literally shit on your face. No one besmirches the Crown Apple name and gets away with it.

I don’t need to besmirch it it does that on it’s own. It tastes like someone took apple flavored chewing gum and dumped it into a bottle of NyQuil.

Funny how almost everyone defending blackbeard has an account made this past summer. It's as if they only joined CAG in hopes of getting access to his stupid sheets when he decided to put restrictions on them.

I’ll defend him, and I have had my account over a decade. Sounds like you are pissed because you don’t have access to the sheets.
