Did anyone trade one of the “This Week’s Top Trade Value” games last week or today? I would like to trade Doom Eternal (if I can find a local store accepting trades), but app and website show it for $20, not 30. Is it a promotion that rings up in store?

Doom Eternal and Final Fantasy 7 Remake were both trading in for $20 today. Maybe the values will turn over on Monday?

Are there any thread regulars who need a Gears 4 Beta code?

Maybe someone knowledgeable can offer me some advice...I want to trade in my entire Wii U collection of games and accessories and older Wii games with the Division 50% boost. I have some decent trade value fetching games (Nintendo 1st party for example).

My question is: should I wait until Friday for a possible bump or go first thing tomorrow in case of a drop? Also am I definetly able to return the Division because I already own the disc haha sorry if this was a redundant post but I'm new to gamestop's trading as I've always just hoarded my games.

I feel like 1st party Nintendo games are generally safe from tanking, and plus they are the games that are more likely to get a stealth bump if there is one this weekend.


Also, you will be able to return the disc, just don't do it right away at the store you bought it from. It's best to go to another store altogether. If you only have one GS in your area, I would wait a couple of days to return the game.

Resident Evil 4, 5, 6 are being remastered for Xbox One/PS4




Oddly enough they are releasing them in individually in reverse order. Resident Evil 6 will be out 3/29, Resident Evil 5 will be out this summer, and Resident Evil 4 will be out this fall.


Edit: Each game will cost $19.99

If anyone here still plays Gears of War Ultimate, there is a new title update out today. Matchmaking times are supposedly reduced, hit detection on downed enemies is improved and kills in social matches will now count towards Seriously. 




Edit: I can confirm the kills you earned in social before the update do not count towards seriously.

I wonder how much Bloodborne is going to influence DSIII?  I tried Demon's Souls and beat the first boss but just could not get into the game. I have Dark Souls but never touched it.  Playing Bloodborne right now and I am obsessed with this game.  I am sure DSIII with be slower again but if they added in some Bloodborne elements to make the game a little faster I may bite eventually. 

I think it is going to be a good mix of DS and BB. There was a leaked gameplay video a few days ago that showed the ability to side step attacks. The video also showed the ability to "quick fire" the bow, which is definitely a marked change from how bows worked in DS. (Even though there are no spoilers in the video, I still put a spoiler tag on it, for people trying to go in blind)



#13204739 Best Buy sale - Tearaway Unfolded, GOW3 Remastered, Helldivers - $19.99...

Posted by MSU_DVM on 15 February 2016 - 05:43 PM

I always loved the GOW series but felt like it ran its course after GOW3. That being said, I wouldn't mind going back to a prettier high FPS version of 3 again and $16 is just about the price point I'd go in for.

Or do you guys think GOW3 could get even lower in the next couple months?

It's been this price a few times the last couple of months. It should be $10-15 soon.

They aren't really flash sales, but we do occasionally get price mistakes that last an hour or less.

Btw, since the hacking does anyone else need to re-sign in like every couple hours?



You better buy this, bluebig guy...we have this flash sale just for you.

And, yes - we need to login each time, looks like.

Clear the cookies from your browser and you should be good to go.

I really hope Gears of War UE goes on sale tonight. I really regret not buying a digital copy to begin with.

Do you need the email to trade it in for 50%?

Nope, the promo should come up in the system when you go to trade something in.

I ask because you are the expert Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin player...


Even if I sucked at DSII (never finished it on 360 - didn't even come close) is it worth fighting through it on XB1? It is going to be a measly $16 next week at BB w/ GCU. And I am tempted to grab it again. Sell me on it, or talk me out of it. Can it be played in short, 1 or 2 hour bursts?


(Note: I am playing Bloodborne on PS4 concurrently, and find it much more manageable than DSII.)

Hope you don't mind me jumping in, but I definitely recommend Dark Souls II SotFS. I played through DS II on the 360 and thought it was okay, but the newer version is way better. The framerate in SotFS is so much better than DS II, and is the biggest improvement in my opinion. The graphics are also really crisp, and it looks a ton better than the 360 version. The gameplay is largely the same, but they did change enemy placement and fix most of the broken hitboxes. Item placement has been changed as well, allowing you to find equipment and estus flask shards pretty early.  


In terms of difficulty, I found it to be a bit more challenging than Bloodborne, but it definitely felt more balanced throughout than the original. The DLC content is pretty good too, each having unique enemies and weapons/armor/spells. Each DLC takes about 5+ hours to finish, combine that with the main game and you easily have 45-50 hours of gameplay for $16+ tax.
