#14518025 The 2023 Gamestop Thread

Posted by pjgamer007 on 29 January 2023 - 08:38 PM

Just to confirm, I did get $64 total for Super Mario 3d all stars:  $40 base with 60% bonus (including Pro).  Tails of Iron PS5 is $7 base if anyone else was wondering, not listing a value on GS site.

 

I am now seriously considering trading in my 2 year old PS5 for $425 and buying a new one with GS credit.  Confirmed this trade total over the phone with one of my local stores.  Nothing wrong with the PS5, but I have put quite a number of hours on it, non smoking household.

 

How dumb/smart is this idea?

Wow.  I don't normally go out of my way to get trophies when playing games, but I have to brag a little.

 

After all these years, I finally got my first platinum in Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights, woohoo!  It was a great game and I highly recommend it to anyone on the fence about it.

 

Ok I'm done.  :)

To add to the previous list:

 

Chasm - $5 lowest price right now:

I played the whole game docked and it looked like crap and the font they used was almost unreadable.  However, this game plays similarly to SOTN/Bloodstained/GBA or DS Castlevanias and I absolutely loved it.  Been a bit since I played it but I really liked how they did the loot system.  You get unique drops from different monsters and they can also have different levels of quality/rarity.

 

If anyone can suggest other newer games like this, please let me know.  If they ever do a sequel or "spiritual successor" I would be all over it.

 

Grindstone - $9 lowest price right now:

Just got this and have not played yet, but the gameplay videos I saw looked really fun.  It's a variation of the "color matching" puzzle game.

#14508641 Black Friday Videogame 2022 List and General Discussion

Posted by pjgamer007 on 30 November 2022 - 12:28 AM

I didn't get much for Black Friday and nothing for Cyber Monday, I set a limit for myself of $20 for any games I was interested in.  Like most others on CAG, I have a pretty large backlog so I just didn't see any sense in grabbing a bunch of stuff that I can't even get to yet.

 

I ended up getting Tekken 7 definitive edition for PC for $10 and Doom 2016 PC for $5 from Newegg, intended to get those for a while.  Also got $20 Dying Light 2 for PS5 from Walmart, and Resident Evil Village PS5 and Capcom Fighting Collection PS4 from Gamestop for $20 each, both "Gamestop new", ugh.

 

I remember some nice surprises from Cyber Monday in previous years, mainly from Gamestop but this year was PFFFFT.

 

I will say that I pulled Ghost of Tsushima DC PS5 out of my backlog with all the mentions of sales on that recently, that is one of the best open world games I have played in recent memory.  It is so well done, I am completely impressed with it.  I am currently pretty far into Act 2 as best as I can tell.  If you have that game in your backlog, you should make it next on your list, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as I was.  I usually space out the open world/sandbox games a lot just because they tend to be somewhat exhausting after a while.  I recently finished Zelda BOTW and then Maglam Lord PS4, then started GoT DC, it is an awesome game.

Could've gotten a Series X for $400 from Microsoft Store via Instagram. That is legit the best deal you could've gotten minus random stroke of luck on Amazon Warehouse for a dinger.

Thanks, yeah I got enough 20% off Xbox credit from Dollar General, so basically same thing.  Just figured MS store would reduce the extended warranty like they have done previously, I will just continue to wait and see what happens.

 

I have plenty to keep me busy.  :)

Ff13-2 for me. Too bad the real game sucked.

I had the opposite with Nioh.  The demo sucked but the full game was a lot of fun for me.

 

The only reason I got the full game was that it was cheap at Gamestop and I had a lot of credit.  Still gotta get around to playing Nioh 2 at some point!

I'll send a code for a digital copy of Predator (The good one, not that crap with Olivia Munn, MA, 4K, UHD, what have you) to the first person to like this post.

Get to da choppa!  Man I love that movie.

Where did you purchase your GPU if you don't mind me asking?
 

I had an old 2 year gold code and got three 3 month gold codes from cdkeys a couple of months ago for $5.79 a piece.  Did the autopay/cancel for each code to get to 3 years of gold, then did the $1 conversion to GPU since I have not had it before.  About $70 for 3 years of GPU, I'm pretty happy with that and it was thanks to tips in this thread.

Shameless plug: my game Emerald Shores is $1.74 ($0.99) in the PlayStation Indies Sale.. basically "Super Mario World with light RPG elements + sidequests + minigames," about a 1-2 hour main story and about a 3-4 hour plat.  Cross-buy with the PS Vita version (Vita version should show up as "Free" after buying the PS4 one).  There's also a free strategy guide available here 

I grabbed it.  :)

 

Gameplay vids seemed fun enough.  I'm a sucker for games with rpg elements and I always loved Super Mario World, so why not for less than $2.  Good luck to you Josh!

Ok... XBC 3 SE now completely nuked from both US and CA Nintendo store web sites.

 

Don't know if this is a good thing or bad thing.
