Game Deals for 2/23/2017

Haven’t done a deals roundup in a long while. Here are a few recent things you might think are worth getting in on: NIS America NIS currently has a metric butt-ton of different collector’s editions available for pre-order. I wish I could give you a good prediction of which of these editions will actually be […]

GameStop.com stole my money
GameStop.com stole my money

I know this story is not unique, but hopefully the more people speak out about this kind of thing, the better chance we have of GameStop continuing to f*** up in this manner. Here’s to hoping my local GameStop.com aren’t douchebags and let me return the thing without issues.

There are two things that are true of life: Jazz music is bad Core Pokemon games will never depreciate in value I bring this up because Amazon.com currently has Alpha¬†Sapphire and Omega Ruby for $19.99 apiece.

The 10 Rarest Wii U Games

Forgive the clickbait title, but this blog isn’t terribly well known, so I must employ some SEO tactics to try and get it to show up in Google! That being said, I promise this is a legitimate list, and should hopefully contain some good information for those looking to snag Wii U titles while you […]

Hot Deals for 4/17

Let’s not waste any time and go straight to the deals! Toys R Us: Over at the Big R, all games are “buy one, get one 40% off.” This isn’t a great deal for full-priced stuff, but there’s a few clearance games which make this potentially worthwhile.

I Didn't Choose the Thrift Life, the Thrift Life Chose Me

My favorite way to spend a weekend morning has always been the same: driving around to random thrift stores and flea markets in search of weird¬†stuff. I’ll try not to get too wistful about it, but I’ve always found there to be something beautiful in these places. Old yellowing shelving units piled high with the […]

Tools of the Trade | Invaluable Items for Game Collectors

One thing I wish I’d had when I first started collecting, is a guide to all the various little tools that can help keep a collection in good condition… as well as a warning of which tools to be avoided!

Not an April Fool’s post, I swear! Randomly stopped by a Toys R Us while I was out and found a 2DS for less than half of retail? Any time you can get a console for the same price as a game, its probably a good deal! Wow what? Why? pic.twitter.com/s5ccFxVs7S — Vito Gesualdi (@VitoGesualdi) […]

2016: First quarter collecting update

Part of the reason this blog got so off track is that I spent two weeks in Massachusetts, where all my Earthly priorities kind of went out the window. I spent a lot of that time cataloging my East Coast game collection, since my records of what exactly I had were a bit spotty. I […]

Amazon / GameStop Deal Speculation for 3/18/2016

Been awhile since I did one of these posts (or any kind of post for that matter). Trying to get back on the wagon! I will say, that if you’ve been checking in on these deals posts, I’ve had a decent record of calling when the time is right to bite on a price. Persona […]
