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 . 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 […]

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 […]

By Spencer . February 26, 2007 . 5:09pm

One Gamestop employee spoke out about the problems and daily annoyances of working for the US’ largest video game retailer.

Super Paper Mario Wii box art?

By Spencer . February 8, 2007 . 6:37am

EB Games has box art up for Super Paper Mario, which looks fairly real even though it has not been officially confirmed by Nintendo. The game also has a scheduled release date of April 23, 2007. Dates on EB Games aren’t necessarily confirmation, but it’s safe to say we’re going to see Super Paper Mario […]
