In Topic: Huge Restock @ GameStop. Tons of PS2 GC GBA Games 75% off + More!

Today, 04:35 AM

It has been mentioned before in this thread but I feel it is worth mentioning again. Check your credit cards and PayPal statements if you bought mass quantities from GameStop. GameStop has tried to charge me twice some things. They bill me when the the original order is placed for the full order and than they bill me again when some of my items ship. These are usually the items that they seem to take forever to get in the mail. As an added bonus I received a GameStop gift card in the mail for $1.95 and I have no idea why.

Sorry to hear that, mate.  Hope you get that sorted out.  I've been keeping a close eye on my charges.  I do see Gamestop put on pending charges, but I've noticed that a lot of those never get posted.  


To date, the amount charged is correct.  Hopefully, it stays that way.  I've got 20 games pending. Frankly, don't mind if they just cancel them all at this point ...

I think GS should fulfill orders that were previously made.  That would be the right thing to do ...

Thanks, OP.  I've picked up a few PS4 games even though I do prefer the Xbox controller.


I'm sticking with my last-gen consoles for at least another year.  As an added bonus, it keeps me away from buying more games (not that staying last-gen has kept me down on that front ... )

Meh, I went through the game list, nothing really got my attention. I added WET, AC 2 and sonic racing, was about $30. Just couldn't pull the trigger seeing my backlog and I'd be buying them just to have them since I played them.

Shame this tread is only about how to flip games, woulda like to see what others were buying to keep.

Happy to have picked up a few games I was meaning to get ... wheelman, singularity, and Disney family hits.


Don't do the flip thing; just not worth the time for me.

In Topic: Wii U - General Discussion Thread

So how good are the chances we will not see Star Fox/new Zelda on Wii U but the NX?

I think both will *eventually* hit on the Wii U.  Nintendo has to think that it owes at least that much to its core users.  And from a business standpoint, Zelda could help move NX consoles, but the game also will not sell as well if its confined as a launch title.   The Gamecube version of Twilight Princess, for example, easily outsold the Wii version.  


Star Fox, however, was just delayed indefinitely into 2016.  I still think that one will go gold faster than Zelda, but it's not far-fetched to think that the game may benefit from being a NX title versus just another Wii U game.  Besides, it desperately needs a coat of next-gen paint anyways, and Platinum is the developer to do it, but I don't see any point for Nintendo to rush in getting it out.


It's not often said, but any industry follower knows the Wii U is an epic commercial failure and it's frankly too late to turn the tide at this point.  Far better for Nintendo to just go on ahead and get these ready for the NX, too, so ports can be ready to go.
