GameStop Shills Kingdom Hearts Re: CoM By Reminding Us Of Pantless Donald Duck

By Spencer . December 4, 2008 . 10:55am

I never read GameStop’s game descriptions, but after seeing their creative advertisement for Chrono Trigger I started to. Most of them are bland sound bytes you would find on the back of a box, but a couple are unusually amusing. The text describing Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories jokes about how Donald Duck doesn’t […]

Why Isn’t KORG DS-10 In More Retail Stores? XSEED Explains.

By Spencer . November 10, 2008 . 4:40pm

KORG DS-10 appeared to get off with a good start. When it was announced for release in North America people were excited to hear more about it. You can’t buy that kind of buzz. Nintendo of Europe was impressed by KORG DS-10 too and stepped in to publish the music creation software overseas.   Raving […]

Away: Shuffle Dungeon Released Into US Stores Early?

By Spencer . October 28, 2008 . 11:15am

At the last minute Majesco shuffled the release date for Away: Shuffle Dungeon from October to December. Hopefully, this extra time will give someone a chance to balance the difficulty so Away: Shuffle Dungeon isn’t a walk in the park.   So, if Away: Shuffle Dungeon got delayed why is it in stock and shipping […]

By Spencer . April 10, 2008 . 11:28am

Hoping to pick up Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Limited Edition? Konami is only giving copies to Gamestop and it costs $84.99. For comparison’s sake the game alone costs $59.99 when it comes out on June 12. The extra $25 goes towards packaging designed by Yoji Shinkawa, a soundtrack CD and a […]

Square Enix publishing Space Invaders Extreme outside of Japan?

By Spencer . February 21, 2008 . 11:52pm

Space Invaders Extreme landed in Japan yesterday and a copy should by flying over the Pacific Ocean to me sometime in the near future. However, I might have jumped the gun on importing it because chances are Space Invaders Extreme and Arkanoid DS are getting an official release in North America.   Gamestop has listings […]

Runaway: Dream of the Turtle swimming to the Wii?

By Spencer . February 4, 2008 . 10:34am

Cyanide previously announced they were bringing Runaway: Dream of the Turtle from PCs to the Nintendo DS later this year. I suppose a Nintendo Wii version shouldn’t be too hard to swallow then? Gamestop had a listing for such a project with South Peak Interactive as the publisher. As quickly as it appeared it vanished, […]

Senko no Ronde temporarily drops to $10

By Spencer . October 16, 2007 . 6:10am

I don’t really check the Gamestop ads for deals. Good thing Insert Credit does because up until Thursday Wartech: Senko no Ronde is only $10, down from $29.99. That is a pretty fast price drop because when the game first came out it was running at full price. Trauma Center: Second Opinion is also on […]

Is Gamestop jacking up the price of the Zapper?

By Spencer . September 24, 2007 . 11:55am

Hmm… I could have sworn at E3's Nintendo Press Conference the Zapper was going to have a retail price or $19.99. Gamestop thinks otherwise because they are selling it for $5 more. Yes, the news about Link's Crossbow Training as a pack in game is exciting, but that's no reason to tack on an additional […]

By Spencer . June 19, 2007 . 9:07am

Capcom is going to release Monster Hunter Freedom 2 in September and there is some swag if you pre-order the game. If you reserve the game at Gamestop you get a bonus Watermelon Pet Poogie.

An alternative to Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

By Spencer . June 11, 2007 . 7:16am

Next week Capcom is releasing their Wii remake of Resident Evil 4 for a pretty fair price, $29.99. While you could relive Leon’s adventure with motion controlled aiming, you could spend that $30 on an upcoming Resident Evil Bundle Pack. On September 4 Capcom is packaging Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil: Outbreak and Resident Evil: […]

Eternal Sonata swag just for the USA

By Spencer . May 30, 2007 . 2:59am

The limited edition Eternal Sonata Xbox 360 bundle superficially looks nice, but beyond the custom box there isn’t anything special about it. The real Eternal Sonata swag is coming to Gamestop, if you preorder it.   Pre-order Eternal Sonata and upon purchase, receive one of five custom designed XB360 faceplates for your system! Valued at […]

$10 video games at Gamestop this week

By Spencer . May 28, 2007 . 3:55pm

  Gamestop is having a decent sale this week with a collection of $10 games. There aren’t too many gems on the list and some of the titles are extremely archaic. Why buy SSX Tricky for $10 when you get SSX 3 for just a little more? Their $15 game selection is slightly better where […]

You might remember Sony is trying something new with their online only game, Warhawk. It is going to be sold as a downloadable game on the Playstation Store and in retail stores. The retail release has Warhawk on a Blu-ray disc with bonus developer interviews and a Bluetooth headset. While Sony has not officially announced […]

Capcom’s stance on Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition

By Spencer . March 29, 2007 . 4:42pm

One of the more juicy, surprising and completely unconfirmed rumors comes from a Gamestop listing of “Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition”. A reader over at GoNintendo pointed it out, but the original listing vanished from the face of the internet. Instead of just reposting the rumor I shot an e-mail over to Capcom to see […]
