Yeah, I was surprised because Rodea was sealed and only $30. Maybe it's not as rare as it seems or the demand is just too low for it. In any case I was sure that once the version with both discs got discontinued that the price would go up like what happened with Bayonetta 2

QuoteEDIT: Also I dunno but I think when you buy a game with trade-in credits you don't pay any taxes (at least, in my area), and I read on various forums that this happened to some people who bought games at a different store (EB Games)
You're a fraudster DJ.
I heard it depends of which state/province you live in. In any case, if the store has to report profits they made to the government for tax stuff, then a trade-in means that either money was lost or nothing at all was lost (depending of if credits or real money was given back to the customer), and when the customer buys a new game with credits then the transaction doesn't involve any real money.

So I guess it might make sense that they didn't charge taxes (even though it's kinda using a loophole).

Same, it's quite uncommon and despite this, day one copies are sellng for a reasonable price, although they are priced much higher than the 3DS and standalone Wii U ports. (both sells for less than 20$, if not less...)
In twenty years though, it will surely increase in value.

You still cheated though. That money could have gone towards weapons being sent to Arabia Saudia, how dare you.

It depends I guess. The PS2 has many rare games that came out 10-15 years ago, yet only a dozen is worth anything decent. Even factory-sealed copies of Persona 4 still go for $10.

New game purchases (using my in-store credits again, so I saved 15% due to no taxes :D):

-Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Switch (I'm now keeping the Wii U copy as collectible)
-Xenoblade Chronicles X for Wii U

I played Zelda Wii U a bit already because I absolutely wanted to. :P I still planned to get the Switch version but I knew it would take weeks before I got the console. In any case, I found the experience better on the Switch so far because the joycon+console are less bulky vertically than the Wii U gamepad. The only issue I think is that two of the shoulder buttons are very sensitive so you gotta be careful.

Just traded in a bunch of games I no longer wanted for Hyrule Warriors and a Switch LCD protector. Still got $48 worth of credits left because the store was offering double the amount on Easter day. I got rid of Bulletstorm, Disney Fantasia Music Evolved (which ended up giving me 2x more credits than what I originally paid the game for), Conception II, Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon, New Super Luigi U, Nintendo Land, Ratchet and Clank (forgot which one), Dungeon Hunters Allicance, and Zhu Zhu Pets.

I would have gotten even more credits but the deal only covered PS3, PS4, PSVita, DS, 3DS, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One games. :P

The balance will probably be used for Binding of Isaac Afterbirth's 2nd Switch print run (it's discontinued but they plan to release a second run with a limited edition cover art)

I hate tactical and turn-based strategy games where it takes 40 hours to end one single battle turn. I tried getting into them multiple times accross multiple generations and I just don't like them. Too slow-paced for my needs. Nowadays I have even less patience for them because I even lack the patience to play 80's slow-paced RPGs such as Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy NES.

I originally bought it as collectible well below market value but now I need to get rid of some less wanted games.

Games like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy 1 & 2 are perhaps the worst offender, i don't like them either.
But games like Advance Wars and Fire Emblem changed my mind, it's just so intense.
If you hate the slow pacing then perhaps you should play them on an emulator with fast-forward. (something i do for Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokémon and Digimon games)

DJ Omnimaga

I FINALLY GOT IT!



*drumrolls*





Castle of Illusions on Sega Genesis!

I've been searching for this game for years. I got lucky cuz the prices dropped a bit. Used to be $70 >.< and I still had plenty of in-store credits left so I got it for $50 and did not have to pay any taxes

Unicorn




??? ??? ??? ??? ???

DJ Omnimaga

Indeed :P

Also I got Binding of Isaac Afterbirth, the 2nd print run with new cover

DJ Omnimaga

I just got Star Fox Zero+Guard for Wii U at Walmart. It seems they're starting to discount their Wii U games stock heavily.

DJ Omnimaga

Today I got Streets of Rage 2 CIB while in Quebec City. Glad I finally got a copy.

Besides that, i mostly downloaded games from the Playstation store that were either free to play or free via deals, so that might not really count.
