Realistically, I think few of us here will be able to compete with the scalper bots, right?...unless we get very lucky. I'm reading that sites will sell out possibly in seconds, probably from Bot automatic sales, though that seems crazy. Certainly they'll all be gone within a couple of minutes. I'm hoping my pessimism is wrong. Best bet is probably to be in line at a GameStop or something similar. Complete crapshoot online.

I was able to grab a copy of Terminator : Resistance the other day, fingers crossed that its complete

Nice find. Sold out everywhere I look.

Just received the last four games from an order I made on May 20, lol. I had written them off as lost.

At this point, order some more stuff now and know that you'll get your Christmas shopping taken care of.  :)

Awww, my local GameStop has a new manager that completely sucks. Used to have a great one, this guy won’t even match trade values on GameStop’s own app. Oh well I guess I’m avoiding buying physical just so I don’t have anything to trade lol

Still need them to trade up to new consoles, but that’s the only thing I’ll purchase from them again

Yup, one GS hardass can make all the difference. Tried trading in a game shortly before the pandemic and the employee (unsure if it was the manager) said the disc label had a small scuff mark and that he couldn't accept it. I saw no blemish of any kind. Took the same disc to a GS a couple of miles away and it was examined and accepted without question...no problem. 

 

Just think that was funny, given how many people here have received pre-owned discs in absolutely miserable shape...and I was given a hard time about a tiny scuff mark (and not even on the data side) that I couldn't even see.

Is Ghost of Tsushima a must buy?

To echo what MEguy11 said, it's a lot of fun. Kind of a crazy combo of Assassins Creed, Far Cry, + some RPG elements. Really enjoying the customization and skill trees areas and they're not overly complicated and labor-intensive, like some games. The story, while not TLOU-caliber or anything, is involving and there's tons of content across a huge map. You likely won't be bored.

 

The negatives? The camera can be a real problem at times. Get ready to stare at close-ups of walls at times while your opponent is pummeling you. There are some weird bugs in the environment that they clearly haven't worked out yet (my horse has levitated on more than one occasion) but as of right now, no game-breaking ones that I've seen. I'd definitely recommend it if you enjoy the games I mentioned above, and like digging into an involving story. It's also gorgeous to look at.
