But cash negates the need for trade credit to other store gift card. I can trade in NCAA FB 14 for $29 credit.

He's being dramatic like many other people in this thread.

Maybe. But that NCAA game is the outlier.. especially with the hack that allows updated college rosters. There is a reason for high demand/trade values for some games.

Lol, yup. PH

Again, yep. And I've been to that Goodwill too. Never saw anything worth getting to flip.

Small world. The extra $5 on $2+ games helps...if you have the time. Just check the games at that Goodwill because they apparently don't before they lock them in that glass case under at the register.

I saw 2-3 empty cases and a few discs that were not the game belonging to the case. 🙄

and over $20 used, im guessing you arent going to find this new anywhere, but you will find a lot of shiny looking used copies.

Yep. Had a GS employee tell me flat out a few weeks back that no stores had new copies of it anymore. 🙄

Edit..his actual quote was that GS doesn't sell new games anymore. 😆

I did snarkily ask if he would shrinkwrap the open used copy and put a new sticker on it for me. It wasn't appreciated.

Technically not clearance but the vanilla version of Kingdom Come Deliverance is ringing up as low as $9.99 in stores.

Good luck finding a copy though..took me several stors to find a copy (luckily I didn't prefer Xbox or PS4).

Xbox One version - https://brickseek.co...sku=207-32-1657

I got bad news, my parents told me the launch day system doesn't turn on anymore. I don't know to be happy it lasted 5.5(?) years or be sad that it only lasted that long versus previous machines.

I'll be waiting for a good GameStop trade promo and get it working long enough to get something for it.

Might be an odd question but is it plugged into a power strip/surge protector? I know Microsoft advised against it for the S and X models (something about an insufficient power draw). Perhaps it's a possible problem with the launch units too...

The possible fix is a power reset (which is just unplugging the power cord from the unit, waiting 10 or so seconds, then plugging it back in).

Played Inside for about an hour or so to get the 3 cheevos last night. Interesting little game. Those fu**ing dogs and mermaid (?) though.

The first Transformers movie was fantastic just because it was great to see them bring those characters to life even though they messed up they faces. The rest of the movies were trash though until Bumblebee which is a masterpiece in my eyes and one of my favorite movies in recent memory.

I love the Assassins Creed games and have yet to watch the movie, I need to check it out.


Bumblebee pissed me off because it showed we could have been getting great Transformer movies all along.

The AC movie was stupid fun but very very dumb and it lost whatever little direction it had near the end.

Does it smell like a gaming convention?


Nah it's a cross between Mountain Dew Code Red and Cool Ranch Doritos.

Called in to get my missing trade PUR points from Monday/Tuesday and it probably took longer going through the 50 question verification process than it did getting the actual PUR points awarded.

Not sure why so many verification questions...

I'll tell you what else they got right about Bumblebee. You could actually differentiate between which of the robots were fighting.

Bumblebee is 92%/75% on Rotten, was it getting a perfect in the past? https://www.rottento...com/m/bumblebee

I haven't seen it yet but I was excited to know it wasn't a Michael Bay movie

It will make you mad. But only because you will realize we could have been getting good Transformers movies all along. It's a great movie that had one questionable role (Cena).

Saw Tennis World Tour for $11.98. small flip to GameStop for $16-$17 (base $10) if you live in California right now. You'll be saving people at Target from buying that crap game anyways. 😁
