I sell at drastically lower prices than anyone lists or offers on this board. Which is why prices are pointless. I sell for reasonable prices based on market value as apparent by looking at sites like G2A. If you don't want to make me a reasonable offer, then don't.

No fucking shit people with more stock don't list prices, because it's harder to update everything with prices. I have lots of stock because I buy bundles and don't activate games I'm not playing.

Asking for people to improve the rules of this board is idiotic. The whole forum is a fucked way to list and sell items, and there's no way to fix it because it's a forum thread. End of discussion. We don't need endless posts "POST PRICES PEOPLE" several times a week.

“Asking for people to improve the rules of this board is idiotic.” You lost me here bud. Yelling “NO SHIT” and making a general statement that no one is arguing with isn’t saying much. Maybe the fact that it’s brought up “every week” is a sign that people really are sick of this shit. If you have 357 games that no one wants, no one expects you to list prices for all that shovelware. You’re missing the point. People are literally posting ONE OR TWO games and not listing a ballpark price that they want, it’s just lazy and a waste of space and time. Anyways, I’m sick of even arguing about it, hopefully some people decide it’s worth a little effort to improve the community a bit. “End of discussion”.

 

Regardless, I <3 everyone and I look forward to purchasing your unwanted crap.

Yeah, that's years out of date. The intention was that you'd have a "trade list" on your profile and clicking it would take you to your post in this thread. For obvious reasons, a forum is not a good way to implement such a system, and that didn't work out. It's basically a free-for-all now.

Just in case we implement a 'must list prices' requirement for this thread, feel free to copy-paste the following to ensure compliance:

- $12,000 OBO.
Listing prices is stupid. Prices change hundreds of times every month. It's not remotely realistic to keep up with market values. If you want to buy something, I'm going to go to G2A and determine the market value of the item at the moment. If your offer is fair or reasonably discounted I'll be happy to trade, if it's wildly lowballed I'll probably block you for wasting my time. Easy peasy.

People offering to buy something in particular, especially something that has large volume like a recent Humble bundlee, should probably mention what they are offering for their own benefit to attract offers. But people listing what items they have on hand generally will have that list up for months while the market values of those items wildly fluctuate. It's a waste of time for sellers to list prices given that situation. There simply aren't enough buyers to get your item sold fast enough for the pricing effort to make sense.

If this were like Steam Community market then you could put in buy and sell orders just like in a stock market with time periods on the ticket validity, that would be awesome. But it's not like that, it's a random forum post with the most janky format ever.
I dono man, I think if a post is decently old, it’s going to be common sense that the price for Half Life 2 isn’t $40 anymore. /s
If you list prices and most of your stuff doesn’t sell, you cleary want too much and aren’t going to be pushing your catalog anyways, and are likely going to be the seller asking for offers and then declining them anyways.

If you think it’s hard work update prices, you either have too much inventory (for a reason), or you don’t want to put any effort into selling your stuff. I really think the reality of it is you can only expect so much work from a buyer these days, they have too many options and will just move on. Selling is hard work in every situation, buying shouldnt also have to be.

Personally, If I see a list and there’s no prices, I don’t even bother. Maybe im in the minority, but it seems as if people with no prices listed tend to have a lot more stock than those who do. Can’t be a coincidence.

But who really cares, it’s obviously not going to change anyone’s mind one way or another. People will and won’t post prices, it’s the way it is when (like you said) the formatting of it all is so bad.

I don't have any problem with people that don't post price (of course I am one of those people, I only price some of my games). If you don't like dealing with people that don't have pricing, just don't message them. A lot of people also get publicly attacked for their prices (which is against forum rules) further discouraging people from posting their (likely) unrealistic prices. If you don't like it, just don't buy it. The market will take care of itself.

You can also do your own post with the games you want to buy and how much you're willing to offer. That way if someone is willing to sell you a game at the price you want, you don't have to message anyone.

Eh, avoiding progression because “we can just ignore the problem” isn’t much of a solution to bettering the thread. Also, I’m really not sure half the games I’m interested in until I see them. As far as it working itself out, this thread alone is 4 years old and a lot of these problems are still there.

I belong to some google+ UV forums, and they require prices, and it’s always worked out perfectly with very little moderation.

You’re right though, it won’t change because CAG has almost non existent moderation, so I guess it’s pointless anyways.

Can we make it a requirement for people to at least list a starting price for items? I’m so sick of messaging people about a game and have them “please make me an offer”. I’ll either ignore then, or make a fair offer only for them to basically want almost MSRP. It’s such a waste of time for everyone involved.


#14121389 Best Buy - Resident Evil 2 w/ free Steelbook with any version purchase

Posted by DaShaka on 23 January 2019 - 04:27 PM

very glad to see this game getting such positive reviews. i hope it sells well and Capcom decides to give RE3 the same treatment.

Anyone know why they started with 2? What was wrong with RE1? Or did they already remaster that...

Edit: Ah. I see they remastered it, but a remake like RE2 would be nice as well.


#14121081 Best Buy - Resident Evil 2 w/ free Steelbook with any version purchase

Posted by DaShaka on 22 January 2019 - 06:02 PM

I get the argument honestly. Games were $60, even $70 back in 1985. That breaks down to $136 roughly nowdays, games are like the only thing that have avoided ever going up in cost over the last going on 40 years I can think of. And then when you consider a small handful of programmers back in the 80's/early 90's could get together and kick out a game in a few months, pretty different than nowdays where major studios have hundreds if not thousands of employees working on the bigger titles at a time, over a 4-6 year timespan.

Games back in the day were so expensive because they didn’t sell nearly as many copies in the long run, the number of people / consoles sold workdwide was a tiny, tiny fraction of what it is now. They HAD to price games so high or they wouldn’t turn a profit. Now, there are so many people that own these consoles, that they don’t need to raise the price.

In short, yes, games cost more to make, but there are plenty of factors that more than make up for that.


#14118066 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by DaShaka on 14 January 2019 - 09:12 AM

I hate sh*t sugar cereals, but yeah, I also don’t mind non gaming related stuff being posted here, I hunt everything I can on clearance at taget and appreciate the heads up on everything. Don’t like it? Keep scrolling. 👍🏻


#14116258 Splatoon 2 - Nintendo Switch - 24.57 Best Buy Pricematch

Posted by DaShaka on 09 January 2019 - 07:20 AM

If anyone can get me one I’ll paypal or venmo the cost and shipping charge.

So you want someone drive to bestbuy, purchase the game for you, then drive home, pack it up, drive and ship it out? To a complete stranger no less, and also they will risk a chargeback from, and you’ll reimburse them for the cost of the game and shipping?

Not only is it a complete waste of time for that someone, but they’ll actually be losing money.

Hate to say it, but asking people to “pick one up for me” isn’t going to happen these days.


#14107924 Target Just Cause 4(PS4) $29.99 YMMV

Posted by DaShaka on 21 December 2018 - 05:36 PM

Sorry if I came off angry, but your first few threads make it look like you stumbled on a great deal at Target, then out of nowhere, you are price matching at Best Buy.
I get it now, and again, you got a great price on it. Kudos.

As you should have been. OP knowingly price matched his own bullshit picture. This is no different than changing a price tag in the store. Don’t confuse cheapass, with douche, and don’t use it as an excuse. Don’t get me wrong, I hate bestbuy and target for the most part, but you’re the reason companies are so strict on price matching now.


#14100507 The unOFFICIAL Art Book Pre-Order Thread

Posted by DaShaka on 09 December 2018 - 04:51 AM

Caught me off guard with this one. Thought it was actually a book of just Han Solo related art til I saw the cover and realized it is art from the Solo spin off movie. God that movie was terrible..but let us know how the book is!


I disagree, I annoyed the film a lot. People just had weird expectations for it.

Damn, way more games than I thought I was be interested in. Good thing for Elite early access, don’t have to stress out about things selling out. Is early access just a few days early or like a week? I can never remember.

STARLINK for $40 sounds pretty good, but I really don’t want the toys. I hope the digital editions are some how that cheap too.
