And the replacement 30% off PS3/X360 games with console purchase is super weak.

Agreed.  Wish they'd do like 3x $19.99 and under for like $35 or something.  That would empty their stock like nothing else.

He was doing his job.

If someone who is over 17 wants to buy M rated games for WHOEVER THEY WANT no associate should deny them, period.  The associate can go through 'why' the games are rated M, but in the end, they have no right to deny the sale to someone who is of appropriate age to buy them.  The associate was being an idiot in this case.

It was probably for this trade promo.

Aw crap.  You know what you're probably right, I wasn't thinking those two things were linked.  Sorry about that, guess I spoke before I thought.  Still pretty good if you're pre-ordering something..

So I have some information from an employee who showed me the actual signage thats getting put up.  Pro Members will get 30% on trade value.  I'm sorry I didn't look long enough to get the dates, but she said it starts tomorrow.  ALSO, there's apparently a "credit = cash" promotion as well. 

 

Could be interesting times.  Hit those flea markets and tag sales, people.

Is the 4/10 over now?

Nope, looks like its going on for at least another week, according to the pdf link posted.

Wrong.  I can confirm the bonus applies to EACH game!  I'll take a picture of my receipt in a bit.

 

I don't know if I'm just an idiot or if CAG's method of uploading images is an absolute bear...either way I can't seem to get the picture of my receipt up.  But yeah, I got the $5 bonus on each game I traded in.  Traded Witcher III (xbox 1, basic edition), Call of Duty AW: Legacy (xbox 1) and Halo 5 guardians and got $25 ($15 of which was bonus from promo).

 

 

Fuck man...people are so quick to come barging in and be like WRONG. CAG in particular.

You're right, I could've phrased that better.  Didn't mean to be a dick about it, just excited that this is actually a pretty good deal if you work it right.




#13924720 The Official 2017 Yard Sale Thread - Passing the torch

Fireball Island is really that valuable, eh? I'd hate to see what you'd do to get a Crossfire!

Crossfire is around $100.  With box and most accessories, Fireball Island is about $200 - $400 depending on shape.




#13923301 The Official 2017 Yard Sale Thread - Passing the torch

Posted by Roninalchemist on 08 January 2018 - 04:12 PM

Now that yard sale season is mostly over for everyone....what was everyone's top find/s this year?

 

I know we're now into 2018 but I had to post this.  I finally got pictures done and checked on conditions/how many pieces were there.

 

Story:  My wife and I were visiting my mother in law and that weekend I decided to go yard sailing.  This was sometime mid-summer, so it was in the thick of the season. 

 

I found a yard sale that had advertised Nintendo stuff, so I went..the usual suspects were there, they scored some bigger NES lots which I don't begrudge them because of what I found.  I was browsing everything, even some Atari 2600 stuff, when a sign for board games caught my eye, $1 each.  Thats important.  I was standing on the guy's porch as he had some stuff up there too, and I see one of my competitors look at this suspiciously big board game...and low and behold its FIREBALL ISLAND!  The box is beat to hell, but holy crap, for $1.  Anyhow, he looks at it, puts it down and I practically JUMP off the porch to grab it. 

 

I held on to that damn thing for dear life.  Looked inside and I saw the board, heard a few other things rattling around, so I just grabbed it.  I got a few other things too, some Alvin & the Chipmunks plush things, a couple PS2 and PS3 games (3D Dot Game Heroes for $2!). 

 

I got it back to my mother in law's and my wife and I were ecstatic!  This was one of our white whales when it comes to our Ebay business.  I didn't get work that summer, so I was really working hard at Ebay stuff (same username on there as here, so check me out!). 

 

It was almost perfectly complete!  After ordering an aftermarket fireball and token piece, I am only missing one of the adventurer pieces (the blue one). 

 

I'm gonna list this badboy on Ebay, but...I'mma just put this out there, if anybody wants to trade a Nintendo Switch for it, I would not say no.  Just saying.  I can send pictures via message but I can't figure out how to get my pictures uploaded to the forum, uploading to my personal gallery doesn't seem to be working right now.  I'll try in another browser in a bit.

Edit:  It would help if I put the bulk of my text in the space for the reply, not the quote.  Oi.SY5Lcux.jpg

If you don't have a Switch, Breath of the Wild is a must have. Runs pretty good on the Wii U.

Breath of the Wild runs great on the Wii U, I enjoy it a LOT!  I also highly recommend Yoshi's Woolly World, Xenoblade Chronicles X, DK Returns Tropical Freeze, and Hyrule Warriors.

Dont understand why they think the bundle is worth $300.

Savers these days tends to over price video game stuff by a HUGE margin.

One of these days I'd like them to have a huge VC sale.  GBA games half off or something like that.

The severe lack of Wii U or 3DS deals is disheartening.  




#13498723 Best Buy - PS3/360 used game sale ($4.99 or less).

Posted by Roninalchemist on 24 October 2016 - 10:12 PM

I ended up picking up the DMC trilogy HD and the new DMC game as well.  Hoping they're good, I've never played any entry in the series.  




#13445650 XBL Deals - 2016, Part 2

Posted by Roninalchemist on 30 August 2016 - 09:39 AM

Zootopia was incredible, all the hate for Pixar needs to settle down.  Yes, Good Dinosaur was not their best effort, but get past it.  Besides, Incredibles 2 is going to be a thing in a couple years!

 

On topic, is there a list of the deals for 360?  I've been back several pages and can't seem to find anything but one games.




#13122331 XBL Deals - 2015

Posted by Roninalchemist on 26 December 2015 - 09:37 AM

Opinions on Xenoverse? I enjoyed the others enough, is this more of the same or better/worse?

I'm playing it currently and having fun.  The character creation is pretty top notch, as far as DBZ games are concerned.  The animation is gorgeous, there's a rockin' new rendition of the infamous "Head Cha-La" from the Japanese DBZ openings.  The gameplay is pretty easy to get used to as well, very fluid and easy.  

 

I don't see it going below $20 any time soon, so I'd say grab it.  You do have to get the compatability packs and they don't download in-game, so get them before you bother starting up.  I'd say go for it!
