Chaos Child and Demon Gaze II have been on my wish list for stupid long. Glad to finally get them off. Up in the air on grabbing The Division 2 or Fire Pro...

That doesn't seem right. Instead of trying to make sure it goes into the hands of actual paying customers, or throwing it away so no one gets them they let a random guy have them for free so he can turn around and sell them for a personal profit seems like a shitty thing to do. 

 

If nothing else they could price the empty boxes and stack them on the shelf then put the games in them as they sell them. Or just throw them out so no one takes advantage and it's fair to everyone.

 

The first option isn't going to happen because of space issues. Gamestop has chosen to get rid of these to clear it up. We can disagree with that choice, but it is their choice ultimately.

 

As for the second, hoping to see good cases and manuals destroyed, creating further scarcity in the future, for some sort of arbitrary fairness is stupid. I've been given cases before by Gamestops too, happens all the time. I don't sell them mind you, but who ultimately cares? It's a good thing that these are back out there and not just being destroyed. The guy selling them is likely making peanuts considering what these go for on their own anyway.

Reserving my spot for 2020.

In 2019 I finished 50 games, a drop of 10 from the 60 I managed in 2018. I blame my months long addiction to Apex Legends which caused me to only beat 2 games between February 22nd and September 4th. Considering that this was half the year, the fact that I still hit 50 actually feels pretty impressive, thanks to a few strong months (and thanks to a little help from Apple Arcade).

This year may drop again as I've made my yearly goal what I'm calling 20 in 20, where I'm going to try to knock 20 RPGs out of my backlog this year. Considering only 5 of last year's games were RPGs, and only 4 of 2018's were, this will be a big increase and would do wonders to take at least a bite out of the massive stack of RPGs I want to get to. Considering the average length of most RPGs though, this will be a time sink

Pretty nice price. Grabbed 2 copies of the Switch version to get free shipping. The second will either be a gift or I'll just return it.
