If GameStop trade value page doesn’t give a value, means they aren’t accepting it?  I don’t trade much, but was going to trade in persona 5 royal ps5 for $30.  The listing says visit store for trade value?  Sorry to be that guy, but any trade bonus right now?  Haven’t seen one mentioned in a while.

The few times I’ve had to deal with customer service did go very smoothly and professionally.  One was cancelling doom collection due to the on cart drm mixup, enough to change my mind on it, and then a replacement for a dinged purchase.  I did order the valis 1 collectors bundle when it first became available because it said it included a standard copy of the game AND the CE as separate line items.  I was still fairly new to LRG at the time, and thought that seemed a good enough deal to sign up for the other items in the bundle as well.  I notice my order and the bundle description has changed to say copy of game is included in the CE now though.  Negating the discount I thought I was getting by purchasing a bundle.  Have learned the bundles generally don’t provide discounts now, but wondering if those original orders that said they would include CE and separate copy of game will be honored?

My initial post is agreeing with you, that the type of things that have been mentioned so far are not really spoilers.  I and the original posters also agreed that it’s better to just hide them though if multiple people are requesting it.  Just pointing out, that even if it’s just a joke, your post is probably inadvertently a worse “spoiler” than anything else so far, and basically mentions the same vague concepts that have already been spoiler tagged.

No offense, and I like that this ties in with my profile pic, but kind of an ill advised joke.  Which I’m assuming this is.  There is no course of follow up response to this that does not cause an actual spoiler.  Any response or lack of response is pretty telling.  Even though I have little faith in modern square management allowing this to be done in any meaningful way, I’d still like to think this is a possibility, which most responses to this would rule out or confirm.  Regardless of how much they do well, I doubt I would like monoliths take on it much anyway (maybe that’s the cheesiness mentioned).  I’d recommend no one really respond to this though.  Even though I don’t think the first thing said was spoiler worthy, you are stating again one of the main things people asked spoiler tags for, which whether they agreed or not, people still went out of their way to go back and cover up out of respect for the requesters.  I haven’t quoted the above or said anything that I think would add to spoilers, but with how quick people were to jump on the first vague comments, probably best to just end this chain of conversation before it really causes spoilers.

 

On another note, I’m just playing xeno 2 for the first time actually.  Its a bit bloated and awkward, but great exploration and environments again, and I like how it’s starting to wrap up.  I had a feeling I skipped an important cutscene towards the end though, because my characters just showed up in front of a major character next time I started.  Probably the last conversation before what is being set up as the last boss.  Went back to theater mode and sure enough I had somehow skipped like a 40 minute cutscene that explains the entire game more than any other, and explains why this character just appeared in front of me.  Just found that funny.

I received the Valis collection (Switch) yesterday and have to say that overall I'm pretty disappointed with it.  Not really LRG's fault as they aren't really responsible for the content but I guess I expected more from the "all-new English localization" they originally mentioned in their marketing for it.  This collection only includes 1 Japanese version of each game, with optional English subtitles.  I had expected to at least also include the English translated versions of the games.  I guess I've been spoiled with other "classic" games collections which include much more.

So the menus and titles etc aren’t translated like a localized game?  It’s just subtitles over an otherwise JP version?
