#14282123 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by Romeo on 18 April 2020 - 08:58 PM

Yeah I just can't justify the Lite. Not being able to dock is a big deal


it just doesn't make sense to me to call a system built on the premise that it SWITCHES playing positions, to make a version that literally doesn’t do what it’s called. It’s like making the 3DS lite that doesn’t have 3D... wait, they called it by a correct name, the 2DS.

#14281398 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Romeo on 15 April 2020 - 08:33 PM

If you visit their webpage now, it seems just like a normal retail operation.  They have a ton of games/merchandise for sale and most is in stock.  In the past they would only have a few games up at a time and they were typically sold out.  It would be interesting to see their profit numbers now, compared to a few years ago.


I did notice that. In the past you had to be online the second the game dropped, and even then often times the website/cart would crash. Now it seems games are plentiful and not that limited. Or demand dropped off drastically. 

#14281274 Final Fantasy 7 remake deluxe back in stock GameStop.com

Posted by Romeo on 15 April 2020 - 03:00 PM

$130+ Used on amazon? Geez, and to think I almost canceled my $55.99 pre order for this. Have never really got into a FF game before but I’m really liking this one.



No one is actually buying it for that price. Amazon is full of gougers



I have a suspicious feeling this is massively overproduced and just sitting in warehouses waiting to be shipped down the road.

#14279925 Final Fantasy Remake - Double 10 Dollar Rewards for Preorder?

Wanted to post this sooner for everyone yet I got tied up. Picked this up yesterday:




#14279830 Final Fantasy Remake - Double 10 Dollar Rewards for Preorder?

Posted by Romeo on 10 April 2020 - 03:04 AM

Got my deluxe copy today from Best Buy. I was unsure on keeping the preorder or not, though with the presumed rarity of this version I figured why not pick it up, plus this was my last GCU preorder game.


I definitely want to play it at some point, once all the bugs and nonsense are worked out (I don't trust any launch game and have heard of a day one patch for tomorrow). 



My RZ account shows as:


Total points for this transaction 1,190 

  • $10 Certificate with Final Fantasy VII Pre-order 500
  • My Best Buy Credit Card Bonus 111
  • $10 Certificate with Final Fantasy VII Pre-order 500
  • Base Points 79

#14276955 Official Collector's Edition Compilation XI - 2020

Why are you exactly complaining then?



No complaints. Just engaging in conversation. 

#14274585 Final Fantasy VII Remake 1st Class Edition in stock

Posted by Romeo on 22 March 2020 - 01:12 AM

Thank you for the heads up Ghaleon. Unfortunately this is a 'fake' collectors edition. It is just the deluxe edition of FF7 remake with a play arts kai statue throw in the shipping box. I was so hopeful when it was announced that there would be a 'super mega awesome edition' and yet here we are.




Please note, this is a soft bundle.  The FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE Deluxe Edition contents are bundled separately from the Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife & Hardy Daytona.


#14260501 BB DOTD 4.99 Shaq Fu or SteamWorld Dig 2

Posted by Romeo on 31 January 2020 - 02:57 AM

The vast majority of players don't care about trophies, or at least not to the point where it's a factor on whether or not they buy/play a game.

It's minimal work to add a platinum, sure. But it's not a priority at all for them.


Funny enough I didn’t buy Shaw Fu today partially because it doesn’t have a platinum trophy. I figured I’d get around to it one day if it did since it’s so short. I’m not a trophy hunter though they do appeal to me as well. 

#14257593 Reduced Price Guide Thread XIV (FAQ in 2nd Post)

Posted by Romeo on 20 January 2020 - 01:54 AM

The moderators do. not. fool. around. in. this. thread. Any shenanigans results in instant termination, it seems. Unless you make fun of those who start it. Right now, I'm keeping my mouth shut.


if I am not mistaken the troll(s) is just one specific member who makes new names and posts to just mess with us veterans. 

I have to say I’m shocked that gamestop still has guides. I thought the Red Dead 2 was the last bastion.

Thank you Jose! Are the 'free' games actually free or just trials with IAP?

#14248321 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by Romeo on 24 December 2019 - 05:25 AM

So is the 50% already taken off or is it on the scanned price? The one I saw it at the employees were saying it's already scanning at 50% off but it really isn't.



It's already taken off when you scan it in store. Some stores put a tag with the full price in the corner, and when you scan it, it rings up half that price.



From my experience, it's half off the scanned price. The fake price tags they put on are made up prices and were put on halfway through the sale. I've purchased games from different stores and had no issue getting 50% off the price scanned at the register.

#14244760 Current Target buy 2 games get a $50 gift card promotion

Posted by Romeo on 14 December 2019 - 02:01 PM

How in the F is this still a thread. Not even close to being a deal.


As typical with this forum, it’s all about fraud and double dipping, or as a previous poster talked about, flipping. 

#14240979 Best Buy: discounts on Nintendo Collectibles with free shipping!

Posted by Romeo on 05 December 2019 - 01:24 PM

Saving nearly half the price isn't a deal.


Ok, whatev.


Mods go ahead and delete.


I respect your opinion by all means. My point is that having a one time coupon for targeted members isn’t a major deal. It’s similar to posting GCU prices anymore, it isn’t available to a majority of people anymore.

Posted by Romeo on 05 December 2019 - 12:05 PM

Thank you for the post sonic. I agree with chaz on this one though, $5 off or 25% off plushes that cost $3 overall isn’t a deal. And that coupon is a one off that is targeted for members too.
