    hey all.
    just got done with some shopping at gamestop today, and they had a pretty good sale going on.
    a good chunk of games that had come out recently were 50% off.
    some high ringers among them were valkyria chronicles for 29.99(!), Persona 3 FES for 19.99, and castlevania: dracula X chronicles for 9.99(!!!)
    sonic unleashed was also 29.99, but I wasn;t too impressed with the demo.
    anybody else taken advantage of this? I was pretty happy to get 3 fairly new games for 60 bucks.(picked up a valkyria chronicles, castlevania, and a used copy of god of war: chains of olympus)

    to be honest, I didn't see those in there.
    it was mostly sega games for sony stuff, and babby games for wii and ds.
    didn't pay attention to xbox, since I didn't get another one after mine red-ringed out of warranty.

    Its the yearly Game Days sale, otherwise known as Gamestop clearing out the sales stinkers.

    I was able to get Silent Hill Origins on the cheap and when I can get some more scratch, I'll definitely grab Valkyria Chronicles, so its not all that bad. There's usually a gem or two.

    Yeah I really want Silent Hill Origins as well. 10 bucks? I might have to drive by GS.

    Not as good as years past. Be warned that most stores gut these games so you'll get an opened copy.

    Hmm....
    Sonic Unleashed for $30, Tomb Raider Anniversary and Namco Museum are both $15.

    I see a new game in my future.

    So I went yesterday in and made a purchase.
    Very underwhelmed.

    They had one Street Fighter stick for the PS3.
    I tried to ask the employee about it -but he made it more clear that he had no interest in speaking about the Fight Stick and that he had no knowledge of it than if he had said the words "Don't bother me about that."
    They were sold out of Tomb Raider: Anniversary, but I did get Sonic Unleashed for the boy (he has made the honor roll for every report card this year) and the Namco Museum.

    I can see how they would get in trouble for selling used games as new because every game was already opened -and covered with stickers.
    I asked Mr. Enthused Employee if he could remove the stickers and reshrinkwrap Sonic because it was a gift and with a sigh of regret he went into the back and 15 minutes later produced the game.

    Now I remember when I stopped shopping there.

    that's a pretty shitty experience...sorry bro :( 
    It sure seems GS can be hit and miss depending on the area. all the Gamestops I've gone to here in Iowa have been full of nothing but friendly folks who are pretty interested in what they do.
    hope your boy likes the gifts though. :)
