Dang if RER2 was $10-15 I would have bit. It is only $3, but being a CAG you need to set limits somewhere...

I was trying to give him the benefit my mercy in filing a police report for GRAND LARCENY. He's a 19 year old kid and I'm trying to spare his school, rep etc. I'll wait and get a hold of his father and then proceed from there.
That was your first mistake IMO. He stole from you, tell him you found him out. You know his name, address, etc etc. Prove that to him, send him the info. Tell him you will contact the authorities and his parent(s) if he does not agree to pay you back. But we now know he went the route of digging a deeper hole, most children and thieves do that, so nothing surprising there. You caught him with his hand in the cookie jar and his response was "IT WASN'T ME!"
If he was truly the victim of theft then he can clear his name with the authorities. Other than that, you should not have conversed with him. IMO it just fueled a childish conversation that was never going to go anywhere but piss you off and make him laugh to himself because he's pissing you off.

Both of you seem rather childish in terms of the way you are both handling this. Granted I know you're coming from an emotional place because you have been wronged. But if this guy is truly a thief then messaging him here or on FB or wherever won't get you anywhere. He won't ever pay you, if he had any intention of paying you he would have done it by now. All you're doing is feeding into your own frustration. Simply let it go and contact the authorities with the information you have.

Just as I suspected. It's a deal that's more than 50% off....
Mine would have normally costed 48 bucks for the 2 40 dollar games with GCU and promo, but it was 44. And yours was 33 instead of 36. I think what happened is that instead of "1/2" off, they used an algorithm that took 20/15 bucks off after GCU on the discounted game.
So in my case, its was 32+ (32-20). Or 44.
Yours was 24+ (24-15) or 33.
I wish I had more cash/gift card, because I would have bought the SHIT out of these games! At 22/16.50 apiece? There's just so many gems in this pile.
No this was discussed MANY times. It is taking 20% of the ORIGINAL price and deducting it from the 50% off price. So $40-20-8=12

GCU is awesome and no one who has bought it has ever complained about it. You break even after buying $150 in games and then save a ton of money afterwards. Not to mention it lasts two years.
The people who buy new games and don't have GCU are the suckers.
There are people in this very thread who have purchased 3DS games with this deal and a GCU discount. Yet have blasted BBY in recent weeks/months about how they suck due to GCU being $30 and they never do any good deals anymore. I have had GCU for 3 or so years non-stop since it was created (when it had a magazine) and have not regretted it once. Yet some people who suck like to complain whenever they can.

Overall the price is good. I just think those products are pretty crappy. The way they look it seems to really restrict airflow.Those big bags on the sides must be wonderful for transporting the console and accessories, but they are just giant airflow blockers when the system is on. So just don't forget to remove them when you go to use the system.

Im new to gcu, so maybe people were picking up games that were just released a month ago for $10-$20. I picked up Battle field hardline for $32 less than two weeks after release, then sold it back to them for more and sold the dlc code in the box for a few bucks. I bought final fantasy type zero for $48, which it would have cost $60 elsewhere then sold it back to them for $40 and sold the dlc code for $35 on ebay. Ive picked up quite a few other games, am earning twice the points so getting $5 vouches quite often, pre ordered witcher 3, batman and eso and will have those for $48 each plus get an additional $10 each credit. All in All, saved well over a $100, probably closer to $200 and I have only had GCU for two months. My question is, what were they doing before they lowered it that are making people feel ripped off?
They aren't doing anything different, people just like to bitch about the "good ol' days" but forget they are wearing rose colored glasses.

:o my interest is, how you say, piqued. What are you testing, amigo?
First off, it is weird how the first thing I thought was "No this has nothing to do with amiibo...OH AMIGO as in spanish for friend"
So I recently got a N3DSXL and have been looking for what is IMO (and many others) the best carry case for the 3DS in general, Pull N Go Folio. I was able to score a Vita one for just over $12 shipped on eBay, and I love it, But the 3DS one is regularly $20+ and it's just for the standard 3DS. The XL one is hard as hell to find, and if you can get it on ebay and other 2nd hand markets it's $30+.
I saw a video from some kid on YouTube where if you just take out the system holder from the 3DS Pull N Go it fits the OLD 3DSXL, but the N3DSXL isn't that much bigger. The downside is...the system kinda just..sits there.
It seems GameStop stores have the original Pull N Go for $7 in store, if you can find it. I have one being transferred to my store, should be here in a few days.
So my hope is, and it may be a long shot, but for $3 I'll try it out, that I can get my 3DSXL in that $3 case from BBY. Attach velcro to it, and basically make it a "custom" N3DSXL Pull N Go.
