My wife left me today, she took the kid, and my face mask and I’m left with my switch, so I’m heading to GameStop to buy doom eternal to take my mind off things. Things cannot get worse this year.


I'm sorry to hear that man. Hopefully the dark days pass quickly and lead to an even brighter future. Try to stay positive and figure out what you need to do to move forward and be happy, and then start taking steps towards getting there.

For the love of God, "sell" is a verb.

I heard Best Buys will have PS4s on sell. The system also brings a free game of your choice. Oh wait, that's right it's "game case" on the internets now, my bads.

Imagine being Arnold in that scene from True Lies and having to be all like "damn, Jamie Curtis, you fuckin' fine, all sexy with your tight body and horrific androgynous monster face. I would totally have sex with you, both my character and the real me." when all he really wants to do is Fuck another 16 year old in his dressing room. Like seriously imagine having to be Arnold and not only sit in that chair while Jamie Lee Curtis flaunts her disgusting body in front of you, the favorable lighting barely concealing her stretchmarks and leathery skin, and just sit there, take after take, hour after hour, while she perfected that dance. Not only having to tolerate her monstrous fucking visage but her haughty attitude as everyone on set tells her she's STILL GOT IT and DAMN, JAMIE LEE CURTIS LOOKS LIKE THAT?? because they're not the ones who have to sit there and watch her mannish fucking gremlin face contort into types of grimaces you didn't even know existed before that day. You've been fucking nothing but a healthy diet of blondes and supermodels and later alleged rape victims for your ENTIRE CAREER coming straight out of the boonies in Austria. You've never even seen anything this fucking disgusting before, and now you swear you can taste the sweat that's breaking out on her dimpled stomach as she sucks it in to writhe it suggestively at you, smugly assured that you are enjoying the opportunity to get paid to sit there and revel in her "statuesque (for that is what she calls herself)" beauty, the beauty she worked so hard for with personal trainers in the previous months. And then the director calls for another take, and you know you could kill every single person in this room before the studio security could put you down, but you sit there and endure, because you're fucking Arnold. You're not going to lose your future political career over this. Just bear it. Hide your face and bear it.



Dear Melissa Joan Hart,

Thank you!

I’ve been saying this for years. Every time I see someone post about not having to pay taxes I reply with something like ‘Use Taxes, look them up’ or a longer than needed explanation of use tax. I know for a fact my state has a use tax. They actually added a line to the AZ tax form for use tax claims. I’m guessing when they decide to get really serious about it they will go back through everyone’s tax forms and start auditing. No one nowadays has gone more than a year without buying something online.


Yeah I mean you get taxed on the money you make, then you get taxed again on the interest if you invest the remainder, then taxed again when you spend it. Seems totally fair, I don't know why people seem to have such an aversion to this system. America was founded in a large part because we were unhappy with how little taxes we were paying. IIRC, I think our forefathers burned a large shipment of tea because they figured it was worthless due to the pittance of a tax being imposed on it.

I didn't even know it was possible to have multiple accounts under one identify. I have another account using all fake info.


#14065229 (REGIONAL) 2ND & CHARLES EXTRA 25% ON TRADE IN OF VIDEO GAMES, CONSOLES,...

Posted by smcmanus1980 on 12 October 2018 - 10:55 PM

I always take my video game chaff to them during these types of deals. As long as it's not old sports games, they'll usually take most of it. They will pay little cash but offer up decent credit as long as the games are complete and in good shape. DS games and the like can be cartridge only.

I don't recommend you try to trade anything of even moderate value because it will be a waste of time, but for anyone that can fill a box full of Dora The Explorer, SSX, Army Men, True Crime, etc, you might find that you can get a decent chunk of credit to use on good stuff.

In my experience, I usually bring in a box and they take what they will and give around $80-140 credit. You can often score good stuff if you look hard enough. Got a new copy of Painkiller PS3 for $15 about a year ago and a copy of Dark Heresy II core rulebook for $60. Don't know anything about that live roleplay stuff but the book regularly goes for over $100 on eBay and is usually OOS even 3rd party on Amazon.

I have 2 and 3 in black label, and 3 has the soundtrack cd too. Should I hold off on those?


Yeah, I'd try to wait for a better promo at least. Both games could probably ebay at $20 each in disc only condition, so silent Hill 2 is def not a good trade. 3 would be a decent trade if you just had the disc but being that you have the soundtrack, you could probably get more like $30+ on eBay if you went that route

Elite is only getting the standard 20% in store. Bought a bunch of $15 titles and an $18 one and didn't even get 30% off on the $18 one.

Traded in a vcr Xb1 and OG PS4 toward XB1X and got $500 (even swap). Was expecting $450... No idea why but super awesome as I picked them both up in packages on Letgo/Facebook and spent $430 total.

Essentially saved $70+tax and I have a blue DS4, a Titanfall Controller and 19 games left from the package deals.

The PS4 got $275 credit and the O.G. XB1 got $225.
