#14317282 The Gamestop Thread

For a while someone was posting the Sunday ad the Friday before...guess I got spoiled there.  Foolishly debating whether to trade now or wait for a better promo (than 30%) on Sunday. 

 

Not sure if buying Madden today would trigger the $10 trade coin since I had no pre-order funds on it beforehand.   Gonna probably just pay-off Avengers and hope that it's G2L.

Anybody renew their pro today for the extra (10k or 5K) points.  Thinking about doing this...

Now the same Transformers that were Buy One Get One 50% off are no longer on sale at all.  This whole promo was messed up.

So I’m seeing NCAA 13 for $20, 2012 for $15, and earlier games for $5 and under. Is 14 actually that much better, or is it just unique because it’s the last one, or what? All these posts are getting me interested in playing one, but not at anything close to those prices for 14.

Among those of us who are "sports gamers," NCAA was generally considered better than Madden year after year.   NCAA 14 was considered a large leap from 13 on the field (or gameplay wise), while cutting back several presentation elements that made NCAA 13 so immersive.  But over time, it being the last one and the community continuing to mod the rosters (and mod in the new playoff format), it's "currently" an instant classic. 

 

However if another game is ever made it won't be worth much to write home about.  Madden actually threw a few college teams into last year's game in a locked franchise story mode, but it was just slapping paint on mud.  Just college skins for about 8 teams.  No specific commentary team or atmosphere. 

 

Another tid-bit:  the 360 version looks and plays much much much better on 360 than PS3, to the point where a collector would not even want to collect the PS3 version after playing both (side-by-side).  

 

Fascinatingly, NCAA 14 was $5 on the PSN back in 2015 or so before it was finally delisted.  And I remember back in 2014  and 2015 (the game released July 2013) it could be found at places like Target or Best Buy for under $15 brand new.

During the last 50% off (I think two weeks ago(?) Maybe it was last week) but I saw they switched the used from 54.99 to 14.99 whatever that Wednesday was, so combined with the 50% off I at least had to jump on it for flips sake. Is it good? I know the supercross games are very hit or miss, but if this ones good I'll keep my xbox copy, which is my preferred system anyways, and just trade in my ps4 copy.

Yeah, I like it alot.  I'm late to the Supercross games (didn't play 1 or 2 when they came out).   I played the first one on a PS NOW trial and thought it was great.  Then Part 3 dropped a few months later and I grabbed it for $40 on an amazon sale.  I had already enjoyed a few other Milestone games (Ride 3, Gravel, MXGP 2019) so I took the plunge.  Lots of replay value as it has a decent career mode, above average level of customization for bikes, an off-road playground mode, lots of tracks, 2-stroke dlc, great physics (totally surpasses other motorsport games like the current gen MX vs ATV series), dedicated servers for online play and you can download other people's custom tracks.  

 

Some of the other Milestone games I mentioned come off like budget titles, but not this one.  A steal for $20 or less.

Been a while since I’ve done trades, I can’t remember - the +$5 bonus does not stack with the 20% bonus toward a pre order, right?

I believe the system will automatically (only) give you the "better" deal of the 2, so 20% or $5, whichever is greater.  At least it worked that way at some point in the past.

CheapyD's post from a day ago mentions it is going on until 6/21...

LOL... a 2 week "flash" sale?  Gamestop doesn't know the meaning of flash if this is accurate.

Deal of the Day - Get 5 select $4.99 Pre-Owned Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 Games for $10

I don't know if all these sales are about:

 

A.) Cleaning House of Inventory (for whatever reason)

 

B.) Trying to make up for sales lost from the decrease in foot traffic in stores 

 

C.) Both

Tempted to buy Steep Xgames edition for $19.99 before the sale ends tomorrow morning.  I guess the downside is that if Ubisoft turns off the servers one day it becomes unplayable?  Heck, I still have my PS3 hooked up in 2020.

I didn't fully understand how it worked when it happened, so I only ordered ten games. The CAGer in me is livid that I missed out on two free games.

Some people were saying they added 10 games to their cart (with 6 free) and at the same time others were saying they added 12 games to their cart (with 8 free).  I didn't really understand what was go on, but "when in doubt, go all out."  So of course I tested it with 12 games and indeed it worked.  

 

BTW at the last second I didn't order because I realized I was just hoarding and I've been trying to get rid of backlog, not add to it.

Any Sponge Bob fans out there try Nickelodeon Kart Racers?  It was $5 on PSN last year but I really wanted this for the Switch.  Wish they had matched last year's PSN sale.

I agree...played the demo for awhile (PS4) and really enjoyed it (a great tribute to outrun)...was $9.99 on the Switch in January, but at this point I want it for $4.99 or hope that a Part 2 is announced/released.
