#13996730 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by KemperJones on Yesterday, 01:39 AM

I'm good through Jan. 23, 2020. I'll have to go on a pre-order binge towards the end.

When GCU began, it was $120 for 2 years. It later went down to $60, followed by $30. If it we're $60-80 for one year, I'd still pay it.

I was very pleased to see the drop on Scribblenauts.  I picked it up on release day, because my daughter and I are big fans of the previous games.  It is OK, but not as good.  I really wish I had the ability to use the touch screen on the Switch for a keyboard.  I got a price match guarantee from Best Buy and got the $12 back.

#13916269 2018 Completed Games Tab

Posted by KemperJones on 28 December 2017 - 06:27 PM

I'm gonna grab a spot.  I was keeping track for years up until late 2016 when my life went to shit.  I've finished a few games in 2017, but I don't remember everything and it's a little late to get a list going.  I plan to burn through as much of my backlog as possible in 2018, so I definitely want a place to keep track.


This will be my seventh year keeping track. I personally define a "completion" as playing through the single player campaign (typically on normal difficulty setting). I'm not really an Achievement/Trophy whore. If I do go above and beyond, I'll make a note of it.

If you look at my archive lists, some of them look like crap since the CAG site updated.

2011 - 27 Titles 


2012 - 51 Titles 

2013 - 35 Titles 

2014 - 32 Titles 


2015 - 25 Titles 



2016 - 16 Titles



2017 - ? Titles



2018 - 1 Titles



:ps4: Batman: Arkham VR







:switch: Kirby Star Allies

I had to grab both Gravity Rush titles while they're on sale, but now I feel like I should enact a game spending freeze on myself for quite some time.  As is an issue with many CAG's, my backlog is HUGE.  I really need to start dedicating some time to games I have before buying more simply because I think it's a good deal.


I also ordered a 4TB external HDD today so that I can download a bunch of digital games and have them ready for me to start playing through.

I just got my Metroid 2 pack delivered from Best Buy.  It's in great shape.  The metroid amiibo is much bigger than I expected it to be.

For anyone looking for a deal on the Pro Controller, Groupon has a $40 Google Express credit for $15. You can buy it through Fry's Electronics and save $25. I did that and bought another to get Street Fighter for $15.

Try http://www.istocknow.com/live/ I used this on Saturday and found a switch at Wal-Mart.

I was able to get one at Gamestop today.  Thanks!


EDIT: I was able to purchase just the console.  He tried to sell me games, but I have GCU so I passed.  He understood.  I'm actually not gonna get any games for a few weeks anyway.  I just wanted to snag the system while I could.

Am I the only one wishing we could've gotten a Star Wars Battlegrounds before they pulled the plug?  It would've been a great way to get some extra use out of the SW characters outside of the other playsets.

I found these small spice racks at Wal-Mart for $3.88 / each.  I really like having them tiered instead of all on a flat surface.  I think it makes the display much nicer.

I thought there were just 4 Kirby series amiibo out today?

Isabella in an alternative outfit (summer) also came out.
