It's kind of of odd that I have so many stores near me, yet, pretty much every switch game that I try to find is out of stock in all of them


If you looking online, the inventory is currently -1. So unless a store has more than 1 copy, it won't show up.

Don't believe them. Niche titles like Catherine, sure...but not AAA games. The several copies of Last of Us 2 sitting on the shelf since release say otherwise. If you are desperate to buy it new from GS, just order it online.

Consider yourself lucky then because my experiences with the associates at the stores in my area have generally been that they are either dismissive, too lazy to bother, or both.


Ask for a manager then

Why would you want that shitty art.

Well, I'm having an experience RIGHT NOW. Still waiting on my Odallus PS4 bundle to be delivered to Canada. It was shipped 2020-04-01, was "on transport to the country of destination" on 2020-04-14 and absolutely nothing since. I've contacted Play Asia CS about this, who told me to wait until June 1st. I suppose it's on me now to contact them again.

 

I've shopped at Play-Asia for years and this is the first time I have to wait so long for a package. If I don't get a replacement or a refund by the end of June, I will stop shopping there altogether. Besides vgp.ca is starting to stock most of the imports I really care about.

I ordered Atelier Dusk Trilogy from them on Amazon near the end of April. It finally arrived a week ago. Their estimated delivery was June 15. - July 15th, so it was expected.

I've never purchased anything from them before. Do they ever do a second print run after a pre-order? I missed out on Brigandine.


No, but they may release additional copies without warning or during the New Year's blowout.

Just buy it. You get rewards points for buying it and then points when doing G2L.

Also on sale at iam8bit but only game+vinyl is available if you want the game. No single listing for just the game.

 

From the LRG listing:

 

"Please note that there is a possibility that Outer Wilds will be available in a limited quantity after our sale from another publisher, as part of a higher priced offering. As we have no involvement it that, we do not have any further details to share, but wanted to note it for the sake of transparency."

 

I think I will wait for that Best Buy release then.

Oh interesting. I thought all stores sold them.


Maybe, not sure.

They don't sell the display model I believe.

It's really not a hassle. Most will not be in the case and can be taken off regular shelves or a dumpbin. Go to self checkout, scan beer, an M rated game at normal price, or an R movie. Then scan the rest. Return the game or movie some other time.

If they are in the case, ask them to put them in the clamshell because you have more shopping to do. Or if they say they can't, tell them you will pay for it up front. Then go to a regular cashier and try your luck. The normal cashiers are much more relaxed than the Electronics employee and won't bat an eye usually unless a manager rings you up.

Also, if you want to raise your chances of success, don't grab multiples of the same game. Also be ready to scan it in the app to show that it is the correct price. The app is gospel and use it to your benefit. Don't ever show brickseek.

Anyone ever receive a fake Xbox 360 game from Gamestop? I bought a copy of Saints Row 2 (stocking up on bc games for Series X) and there is a sticker around the ring of the game. I can't test it because I don't have an Xbox.

These are supposed to protect discs that have cracks in the center. It may still be fine to play.

Not to be that guy, but I'd pay $3 + tax PayPal for the DLC code(s) if you don't mind picking me up a copy while you're there.
I assume it's just the vanilla disc and codes anyway.


Yeah it is just vanilla disc + codes for annual pass and Forsaken separately I believe.

I have a coworker who’s super into Destiny, but he kinda confused me when he told me that it’s technically a free-to-play game now, but some of the DLC is paid? At what price point would it be worth it to pick up the Forsaken Collection? There’s a Walmart not too far away from me that has over 10 copies and sells them for $3 each. Is that all of the DLC or is there another expansion they didn’t release on disc?


That is worth it for $3. It gets you the game on disc plus first annual pass and Forsaken expansion. The latest Shadowkeep is like $20-$30 I believe and does not include previous content.

I know I said I was going to stay away for awhile, but this place is like heroin to me and if I'm going to be "working from home" for who knows how long, I want to make sure I get in on some cheap shit! I also wanted to thank everyone for the kind words earlier in the thread: it sounds cheesy as hell, but I am desperately trying to see the positive side of things for the benefit of my wife and two young daughters. In any case, I tried to consolidate the last few pages of deals that everyone was reporting on. This first price is the MSRP and the marked down price is the lowest price I've seen listed, either what others have reported or what I've seen personally in my local area. Please let me know if I missed anything in particular or if you find a better price somewhere near you and I'll edit this post with the updated information. Credit, as always, goes to the original posters; I'm also going to start keeping these link dumps in spoiler tags to at least ATTEMPT to prevent lurkers from getting the goods without putting in any work. Without further ado, here's what I found this time:

Stay well, fellow CAGs!


Very much appreciated. Thank you.
