Posted by romeogbs19 on 28 September 2015 - 01:25 AM

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.

#12930230 Huge Restock @ GameStop. Tons of PS2 GC GBA Games 75% off + More!

I feel bad for you, i literally dont understand why people care about pristine cases/artwork more then the actual games themselves. I hope that you get it all very quickly

Yeah, I'm with you.  I admit I used to be OCD on this, too.  Now, while it is still my preference, I'm willing to take disc only conditioned on the cost I'm paying.  Here, for example, given how low-cost the games are, no case/no manual just doesn't matter.

#12883278 Fatal Frame Wii U - Digital Only - Are you buying it?

Posted by romeogbs19 on 25 August 2015 - 03:23 AM



Really disappointed that Nintendo is not releasing a physical copy of this game for North America.  It was one of THE games that I was looking forward to this year, but I'm just NOT interested in downloading a 16GB game on my harddrive.  That, and I'm one of those who likes to OWN his game in a retail package.  


So anyone here going to pass on Fatal Frame because it's e-shop only?  


I think NOA's move is beyond obtuse.  I understand if Fatal Frame may not necessarily have the huge sales numbers, but games like this go a long way in demonstrating that your console has a wider breadth for a library than Mario and Zelda. 


Fatal Frame being a Wii U exclusive, Nintendo could have pushed this like they did Bayonetta 2.  There's no reason to make the former e-shop exclusive and hand the second a retail release, especially since I'd venture to guess that the audience for both games has a wide crossover.  


I hope Nintendo changes its mind, and offers the game for a limited physical release.  Anyone interested in starting a petition?   I'd totally sign it and I think a lot of others might too.


Nintendo lost my purchase on this one.  I was planning to preorder.  As a long-time Nintendo gamer (I've had every home console since the NES), I'm growing more and more frustrated by how Nintendo is handling this generation.  Yes, the Wii U has some decent games, but moves like this really reinforce Nintendo's inability to broaden its thinking beyond just its "kiddie" and family friendly titles.  


It really does seem Nintendo is more interested in selling plastic figures this go-around than make its games as appealing for buyers as possible.  When you have SO FEW games, the least you can do is make it available in retail form for your customers who've stuck by your console despite the fact that its release schedule is drier than the Sahara Desert ...


If anyone from Nintendo reads this, then PLEASE reconsider the e-shop exclusive release.  You're dooming the game pre-release.  It will sell terribly.

LOL I bought it on 360 for new at that price a few yrs ago.

#12829173 Metroid Prime Trilogy used $39.99/$35.99 (w/PUR) @ GameStop / OOS ONLINE

Posted by romeogbs19 on 26 July 2015 - 11:39 PM

It was a really scummy thing Gamestop did. They did it with both this and Xenoblade. They saw the demand for used copies and hiked up the prices in store for their own used copies...and then they quietly repirinted more and sold them as used, despite being reprints. Neither game is worth anything to me anymore. Absolute bullshit. That's why I haven't given Gamestop much business since. It really disgusted me.

I'm sorry, as much as I have my issues with GameStop, THIS is not one of them. I'm all for limited games getting reprints so more people can enjoy them. This game was being pimped like crazy on ebay when it was scarce so GameStop selling reprints for retail cost was a great deal.

The only ones bitching about this are the sharks who wanted to keep fleecing gamers.

You're getting no empathy from me.

I hope GameStop gets into the business of reprinting more games. There is a vast library of great games that could be reprinted.

#12785159 Gamestop: Buy 2 Get 1 FREE all pre-owned products (7/2 - 7/4)

Theyre going to have to lower many of their Wii prices if they want to get rid of them. $45 for MP9? $30 for Twilight Princess? $40 for MK Wii? Ridiculous.

I use these ridiculous prices for trades. I got thirty something for a MP8 trade in during the 50% extra promotion lol


Well, I was missing some of the Nintendo and Ubisoft published games.  Some of the great titles selling between $1-$3 were the ones I was going after.  Definitely not interested in games selling for much more than that.

The bought it up in an investors meeting. Those aren't exactly public announcements.


Care to wage then? I'm pretty sure NX will not be out in 2016.


Ofc they are working on a new console. Thats what you do. Doesnt mean its out any time soon.


PS5 and the Next Xbox are already being worked on as well.

Totally agree.  NX is not coming until 2017, at the earliest.  No way Nintendo launches first next generation - that's essentially asking to be killed off.  Trying to one-up the current-gen on power isn't going to work, and by winter 2016, PS4 and XBONE will be so entrenched and coming out with AAA-looking games that anything Nintendo musters is going to be awfully hard to justify a new console purchase (not to mention that the PS4 and XBONE will be priced significantly lower).


Best bet for Nintendo is to see how the next-gen plays out and release around that time with a killer AAA first-party line-up that might include Metroid, Legend of Zelda (the Wii U version, remastered), and may be a game along the lines of a Luigi's Mansion. That way, they can at least be on even keel with the new consoles and make sure they can get the third parties to port over since their system will share some of the same basic architecture.


It's too Sega DC for Nintendo to make that same gaffe of releasing too early.  If Nintendo has learned anything from the Wii U, it's that they need to make a more traditional console.  The Wii U isn't suffering from great exclusive games - it has more than it's fair share - the problem is Ninty this time practically has ZERO outside support, and that makes the I-buy-Nintendo-only-for-Nintendo-games a little too literal.  We always say it, but we still expect a little more variety on Nintendo consoles.  After the crazy-huge library of the Wii (even if a lot of it was junk), it makes the pill that much harder to swallow now.


What's great about NX is that Nintendo could take every Wii U game and have a killer AAA launch line-up.  With how low the Wii U sales are, odds are a lot of the market will barely have played most of the Wii U's library by the time its lifespan is officially dead.


For now, Nintendo will "limp" along with its few killer games.  Fatal Frame V is still coming, and I'm sure we'll see at least 2-3 more franchise games show up.  We'll learn more about NX next year, but no way is that console showing up until at least 2017.


Sorry for the rant, but I love yappin' about this stuff :-)

#12717075 Wind Waker Wii U Bundle - $299 at Nintendo Store - refurb for $235

Posted by romeogbs19 on 31 May 2015 - 12:13 AM

Am I the only one who hates the idea of these downloadable extras?  


I'm so glad I bought my Wii U last winter when Mario 3D World and Nintendoland were physically packaged with my console.  


Consoles break and I"m simply not a fan of the notion that I actually "own" games sitting on a server. When networks decide to go down or move on, and my console breaks - there goes my ability to ever play those games again.  At least with physical copies, all I need a used console and let's face it, those are usually in ample supply years down the road.

#12642886 GameStop and Amazon: Wii U GameCube Adapter

Posted by romeogbs19 on 16 April 2015 - 07:48 AM

Even as a Wii U owner (and yes, a long-time fan of Nintendo games), it pains me that there is SO much hoopla over a lame controller adapter.  The very fact that people are clamoring over a device that effectively works on one Wii U game (forget the DL games) shows just how lost the Wii U has become.


Don't get me wrong, I like the games on my Wii U, but why Nintendo couldn't just add a GCN controller port bugs me.  They could just as easily create a wireless GCN controller (Wavebird 2 anyone?) and forgo the darn adapter entirely.


And don't get me started on the Amiibos ... I understand cash-grabs, but the level of blind loyalty to people buying these is practically ridiculous.  I mean, I'm of the mind now that Nintendo (and well, the customers, too) don't even care whether any of these things actually "do" anything gameplay-wise ... which they don't.

Honestly, how much more is Square going to milk this game for?  They might as well announce the PS5 version.

#12541958 Trials Fusion (X1/PS4) $19.99 South Park: TSoT (360/PS3) $19.99 Best Buy

Posted by romeogbs19 on 02 March 2015 - 05:12 PM

South Park is very tempting at $16 with GCU.  I just think it will go lower at Black Friday next year and it is not like I do not have stuff to play.  Hmm...

I agree, but then I think that it's going to be awfully hard to find new copies of this game come this Nov.  I mean, if you look at stores nowadays, it's clear that the last gen sections are getting smaller and smaller.  I'm sure you'll be able to get this at Gamestop used, but for those who want it new, I'm not sure waiting til BF is the better option.


My general view right now is IF there is a last-gen game you want, and you want it new, then buying it sooner rather than later should be the MO. 


As for Stick of Truth, I'm tempted to pick it up.  I'm not even a SP viewer, but I've seen some reviews and clips of this game, and it looks shockingly hilarious.

#12507520 Nintendo Wii U 32GB Black Deluxe Set w/ Super Mario 3D World & Nintendo L...

Posted by romeogbs19 on 17 February 2015 - 01:29 AM

Bought mine last December from Walmart when they had a $50 GC promo going on.   It came out to roughly this price.  Used the promo GC to pick up Bayonetta 2.


I understand Ninty is having a difficult time this go-around; reminds me of the Gamecube era, but in some ways it's worse this time as third parties are essentially non-existent. 


I'm happy to be a Wii U owner since I care only about first-party games anyways (and always have when it comes to Ninty's home consoles), but I imagine that other gamers may be inclined to skip the Wii U for that problem.


There are enough first-party highlights at this point to jump on (unless you feel like waiting til next Black Friday).  I still don't see this dropping to $199 - may be $229-249 since Ninty will have Legend of Zelda ready to go this year.  I can see a $249 bundle but I doubt Nintendo wants to drop it to $199 MSRP since that it almost admitting commercial defeat in the face of what will probably be $299 or $349 PS4s and Xbox Ones.  Retailers will probably be willing to sell it at $149 at $199 MSRP and that would be a perception killer.


Perception plays a BIG role in the gaming industry, and some feel Sega doomed the Dreamcast when they dropped it to $199 too early against the PS2.  I think Ninty will likely keep it at ~$249 next year.

I picked this up on blu during Target's $10 sale; watched it today and it is easily one of the best movies I've seen in my lifetime.  Such a touching and meaningful reflection about the meaning of relationships and the complexities of our *human* emotions.  This is an amazing movie that anyone who is or has been in a relationship should see.  I loved it and am happy it is in my movie collection.
