#14292913 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by Sauza12 on 29 May 2020 - 02:02 AM

Interesting how GameStop still hasn't gotten my order to USPS, and it's gone from expected to be here on the 4th to the 8th now. 19 day (13 business) shipping is really, really extreme and inexcusable. Especially considering the fact they could use UPS instead of USPS, who are taking far longer than usual. I mean the package hasn't even gotten to USPS yet and it's been over 3 days since they said it was shipped.


Not sure if you guys are also getting this, but I would recommend being cautious ordering online right now. After this, I'm going to take a few months to wait for this to all blow over and not order online. I would have cancelled my order if I knew it would have taken this long. Insane. Won't call GameStop support either, after I had to wait 30 days for charges to drop off last year on PayPal, and got email support 2 months after I contacted them, waited 5 hours on the phone with customer service to only have it shut down.

Gamestop might have sent your package out, it just the local post office hasn't done anything with it yet.  My wife works for a home delivery pharmacy company and apparently shipping anything out right now is a nightmare.  According to the shippers she deals with (Fedex and USPS) they are experiencing 2-3x Christmas levels right now.  Normally during the Christmas season they would hire seasonal help.  Not only is that not happening, but they are down to about half of their normal staffing levels due to the virus.  Of course, you can take all of that with a grain of salt and maybe it's just the area we live, but it would make sense for it to be country wide.


That being said, I'm in the same boat you are with Gamestop.  I ordered 5 games on the 19th and every time I track it, the expected delivery date goes back a day.  It sucks, but at this point there's not much to be done.

I tried to trade in a couple of copies about an hour ago and got shot down.  Apparently they've had so many people trading in The Division 2 the area manager wont let any of the stores in my area accept them until the trade value goes down.  Sounds pretty shady, but I can't really blame them either.

System Shock 2



Have it, folks.

#14065545 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by Sauza12 on 13 October 2018 - 07:37 PM

It looks like this is super YMMV, but I just got back from Walmart and the had a bin filled with games for $5.  I grabbed:


Hyrule Warriors Legends (3DS)

Inside + Limbo (PS4)

Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)

King's Quest Complete Collection (PS4)
Dragon Quest Heroes II (PS4)

Singstar Celebration (PS4)

Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii)


I also saw, passed on:

LA Noire (X1)

Agents of Mayhem (X1 and PS4)

Stern Pinball Arcade (PS4)

Wolfenstein:  The New Order (X1)

XCom:  The Enemy Within (PS3)

Halo Reach Limited Edition (360)

Yo-Kai Watch 2:  Bony Spirits (3DS)


Among many, many others.  But like I said, it looks like this is VERY YMMV.  After I got home I checked Brick Seek and the store I went to was the only one that had any of these games at these prices.  For those of you in the area, this was at the Walmart on Plymouth and Middlebelt in Livonia, MI.

In addition to what's already been posted, I got Frozen:  Olaf's Quest for the DS for $9.98.  Say what you will, but my daughter loved it.

I kind of doubt my account is blocked. I've never had any issues with them before. I'm guessing the stuff I'm trying to buy isn't actually in stock and that's messing with the system.

I just got a few of the PS2 games I ordered today.  They came in generic cases with no manual like I figured, but they all look fine.  I haven't had a chance to test them out, but I don't see any scratches that concern me.  Not to bad for 50 cents or less a piece!

The store near me got a ton of copies of Starhawk for PS3 in.

SMB/DH was never released on it's own with a dedicated box.  It was only a a packin with the NES, but that included a manual for the game.  It was also never released as a combo with the Zapper.  Repro boxes for SMB/DH were created within the last few years, but I doubt someone turned that in to Amazon. 


I'm guessing its going to =be the game, manual and Zapper all just rubber banded together.

I went yesterday and saw Batman the Animated Series S1-4 for $14 each. Ducktales at $9 a volume. Or see this tweet:

Oh, this could be bad for me.  I've really wanted to revisit all of those series with my daughters.  I don't know if I have the self control to buy only one or two sets.  I better bring my wife with me.  She has all the self control in this relationship.

If you are over 20 wearing this stuff you need to grow up and go to the mall and buy some descent clothes instead of spending thousands of dollars on video games

I used to feel like that about guys in their 30's and 40's that were into "immature" stuff that adults shouldn't do.  But when I turned 30, surprisingly I found that I still liked a lot of the same stuff I liked when I was 25, 20 and even 15.  Sure somethings I grew out of (like that very regretable nu-metal phase), but there are still a lot of things that I was into 15-20 years ago that I still dig, it's just now I have to schedule Arkham Knight around my kids, wife, job, and all of the other "adult" things I have to do.


So if I feel like wearing a Legend of Zelda shirt on the weekends instead of the monkey suit I wear Monday-Friday, I can manage having some 20 year old guys think I'm a loser.  They'll understand in a few years.
