As a software engineer I can confirm we are all spending our time designing apps that mimic gamestop’s to scam them out of trade credit.

They finally figured us out.

Was told they don't take customer app values because 'some people code fake apps to look just like the GS app to rip them off'... I think that's enough Gamestop for awhile.


Lmao...


#14177581 Official Collector's Edition Compilation X - 2019

10 years ago? How old are you? Collector's edition have been around for WAY longer than that.

Have they become more prominent over the past decade? Yes.


Can’t seem to really remember CEs before the 360/ps3 gen, at least not when I was shopping around at the time. PS2/cube/Xbox had a couple, but ps1/n64 era had almost none, snes/genesis certainly had none.

CEs have just gotten kinda too much for me. When they first started appearing ~10 years ago I would buy almost all of them because I was a sucker for 'collectors' or 'rare' stuff. Nowadays I dont buy almost any except the true games I am really looking forward to, and even then I usually pass on expensive, large ones.

 

Only one I ever regret not buying was Last of Us Post Pandemic, which at the time I thought was a ridiculously high price.

I don’t understand why everyone is now doing the “well reveal the rest of the games later!” It’s like everyone followed the PlayStation Classic and was like guess that’s how you do it

I have a feeling the FfVII first class edition from the squeenix store will be a deluxe edition with the statue separate kinda like the dragon quest CE. Matters to some - certainly me which is why I’m passing on it most likely.

#14167288 Target Cartwheel Deals May 19th - May 25th: 70% Off Madden 18

Posted by arsenalcrazy8 on 21 May 2019 - 08:46 PM

25.99 for the PS classic is a great price IMO. 

 

I know it was poorly done, but for 26 bucks, just the controllers, box and nostalgic form factor are worth it lol.

Sometimes It’s good to step back and really look at things.

I did this at the GameStop I was at a few days ago, and Jesus, literally MORE THAN HALF the store is now not even video games - it’s literally figurines, hats, backpacks, shirts etc. insane. They have literally lost their identity.


#14139124 Limited Run Games Thread - The Switch is on!

Posted by arsenalcrazy8 on 06 March 2019 - 07:00 AM

Well credit to limited run. My copy of Cosmic Star heroine for the vita was lost not once but twice in the mail, and they shipped me a third copy which I finally received today. That’s really good customer service so have to give them props.

Posted by arsenalcrazy8 on 25 February 2019 - 09:42 PM

I found 2 dualshock 4's for 5 bucks each at a nearby goodwill. 

 

they looked in a little rough shape and when you shook them, there were things moving around inside.

 

"they must be broken" I thought. Someone must have used them for parts, or tried to fix them etc.

 

I bought both anyway thinking I could at least tinker with them.

 

I got home and open them up. Both had one of the rumble motors loose and flailing around inside, but to my surprise, they both work 100%; they hold a regular charge and every button works.

 

I could probably just solder the missing motor on them, but how bizarre they would both have they same sided motor and plastic broken on the same handle. Is this some sort of common occurrence for ps4 controllers?

Posted by arsenalcrazy8 on 19 February 2019 - 06:37 PM

Id say broken games being shipped is a major problem in the industry nowadays. games that require 60gb day one patches, or games like Spyro that only has one of the games on disc. Hate that trend.
