#14070196 Gamestop B&M: Epic Quest Beta

Posted by Rotondo on 25 October 2018 - 12:34 AM

It looks like every quest can be completed in multiple transactions so that's good, I got this in my email to update me about progress:

#14069559 Gamestop B&M: Epic Quest Beta

Posted by Rotondo on 23 October 2018 - 04:48 PM

Just wanted to post this to help with the confusion.

 

There are possibly two different versions of this running concurrently, at very least there are two separate urls with separate criteria:

 

https://www.gamestop.../powerupmission

 

https://www.gamestop.com/powerupquest

 

One is easier than the other.

I have the PowerupQuest variant, thanks to bluebigman2006 for getting extras for everyone :D

 

The main question I have is: can all quests be completed in multiple purchases or only the collectibles as specified?

 

We recently purchased two 20~ dollar games each in separate transactions if I purchase another and the quest pops I'll update the post.

 

If everything can be done in separate transactions this seems like a decent thing that most people will accrue naturally. Hopefully this is the case as I rarely buy a bunch of games in one go, mostly since the games I'm buying are usually rarely in stock.

They had 50% off of media and games at the thrift store I frequent.

 

Walked away with all this for about 25 dollars.

 

They had a bunch more good games for nes but mostly stuff I had or didn't want. Go figure only just bought ninja turtles and ninja gaiden and this placed had them for like 2 bucks each after discount :(

 

Nes works with every game so far, which was great because my childhood one is becoming more and more temperamental and I don't have time to fix the connector again at the moment.

 

Also rambo on nes sucks.

Don't know if this has been posted before but this vita game plus a few others were converted from new to used recently

 

https://www.gamestop...utterfly/159808

 

We noticed when the copy we purchased had the bonus cards still sealed in it. Gamestop guy mentioned it was probably converted. So be sure to check some random collectors editions of vita games if you see them.

Also I wish we had that quest thing around the east coast, I'd probably finish most of the "quests" just with my normal trade credit purchases.

 

If anyone ends up with an extra code or sees them on the east coast please share.

 

Edit: North east specifically.

This may already be known however I got a retro disc game that had a damaged center ring, which they repaired by putting a silver circular sticker.

The reason I removed this was because I believed it was some remnant of a rental sticker.

You can't see it too well in the photo due to poor camera/compression, but there's a few cracks in the center.

 

But yeah, just wanted to give people a heads up. I'm sure most people are fine with silver stickers in the center I'm just personally not.

I found a complete copy of Dokapon Journey at a pawn shop for $5 and was completely shocked at how much they are going for on eBay. 

It's a really good game, really weird combination of turn based RPG, and mario party.

 

I've played through it once in the past I'd say it's worth the experience, but it takes a long time and you need the same people to play with throughout story mode.

 

Edit: I was speaking about Kingdom however Journey is just about the same game with minor tweaks and different style of graphics.

Thanks to people trading in things because of the promo I was able to luck into a complete copy of Dokapon Kingdom. ( Really uncommon to find at gamestop )

 

If there's any older harder to find games you guys are keeping an eye out for, now is the time to search for them.

 

Hopefully other people get lucky.

#13906262 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by Rotondo on 14 December 2017 - 08:13 PM

Finally found a walmart near me that actually clearances things.

 

They had a few good games for 7~ dollars, shockingly they had 2 Yoshi Woolly world's for Wii U for 7 with amiibo.

 

Grabbed both, one for a gift and one to stare at on a shelf.

 

Definitely a good price for it if they have it marked like that in your area.




#11846643 Free Xbox Live 7 day trial codes, via skittles site, repeatable

Posted by Rotondo on 16 June 2014 - 04:49 PM

I'm not sure if this has been posted already, if it has my bad.

 

Skittles is apparently doing a promotion where you can get 7 day trial codes for xbl.

 

I assume this was originally meant to require purchasing skittles but apparently you can reuse the codes.

 

Codes:

95WJ9

S4VK3

6R93V

 

Site:

http://ssl.skittles.com/Default.aspx

 

Just enter the codes on the site, fill in information and repeat ad infinitum.

 

 

Originally came across this via here, http://www.thetechga...ed-5-18-14.html

 

I just tested again to make sure it still works and it does.

 

Just to clarify this does not give you games for gold, but it's still really worth it if you just want to play for a bit while a certain company is taking their sweet time to release their game on pc.

 

Edit: added another code
