Somehow I forgot to use up a Buy 2 Get 1 Free coupon at GameStop I was given way back in January for renewing my subscription to their Power Up Rewards program. Coincidentally that was free thanks to a multitude of “Points” I’ve earned at the retailers from years of wasting money there. I get told all the time when I’m there that I have a lot of points and I should spend them, but honestly there isn’t anything I’d want to spend them on in their catalog. Anyway, that’s a separate story. So I went to three separate GameStop’s to try and find a deal worth my coupon, but sadly I only scrounged up three random games to use it on (I was hoping to pick up Mortal Kombat X and Kirby’s Rainbow Curse, but no such luck). All was not lost, however, as the chain was having a 4 for $10 sale on a lot of great-but-old last generation titles! I picked up four at each location, haha. Lastly, this weeks Roundup brings me very close to getting the elusive 2,000th game (about 100 away). I wonder what it’ll be… Read the rest of this entry »

A bit late on getting this one out, but a great week nonetheless for games. After passing on a select few games during the tail end of GameStop’s Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal, I decided to drag myself back to the store to purchase what I honestly should have bought the first time. Sadly, and let this be a lesson, only one of the games from the trio I originally intended on picking up were still available. *sigh*
A preordered game arrived from Amazon this past week, as well as a random sealed PS2 game. Oh, and a very interesting find at Goodwill capped off the week.
This week saw a collection of games from Goodwill, eBay, and GameStop. A few of those GameStop games were great finds: games I have wanted to play for a long time and games that were simply a steal for the price. Anytime I can find something at Goodwill is always a treat as well, and this there was even a surprise (literally!) in one of the games I bought. Lastly the games from eBay were part of a lot of loose DS games, but still included some swell finds for a sweet price. Read the rest of this entry »
Laura had a long meeting for work and I had the day off, so the only natural thing to do was hunt for video games across the South Bay Area. I ended up stopping at two GameStops I’ve never been too before, both of which proved to be fruitful ventures, as well as a couple Goodwill locations, which were not as grand as past expeditions but still worthwhile. When all was said and done Laura’s dad asked me if I played all of these games, which sadly the answer is no. But I told him I was proud of the fact most all of them were $5 or less! Anyway, here’s this weeks roundup! Read the rest of this entry »
Maybe it’s the curse of the collector to buy the crappiest of games and find thrill in it all, because that’s exactly what is happening right now. This week I picked up three games from Conspiracy Entertainment, arguably the worst publisher on the Wii, simply because of this infamy. If a game is terrible, maybe it’ll make for a collectible item in the future. In the near future it might even make for a fun video for this site: you never know! In direct contrast to Conspiracy’s lameness, I picked up two games from Zoo Games, which makes lesser known games, but Zoo’s games are actually decent. Outside of those, a nice DS game I found on eBay arrived this week, as well as a handful of super cheap DS games from GameStop. Overall a great week! Read the rest of this entry »
