We are going back to the original way!

Just that now there is a check and balance system so I can legitimately call someone out without feeling bad(Actually, I don't really feel bad)

No mod squad badge. No multi-person dibs.. One dib and that's it. Original way. Just having no more mystery bundles, no free items.

They're back to the way they were. We saw pretty fast that more than 1 dibber doesn't work.

@Jeff If we have the same issues as before, will you consider banning gift cards and digital items? I feel like those and mystery bundles were about 90% of the problem last time.

I think it would have worked, just not how it was implemented. You should have just allowed multiple dibs and if it happened then use the vote system.

I hope you guys approve of my steal. The Pay It Forward thread didn't work out, so I had it available again. I paid $90ish in an auction, so I'd imagine it's worth over $100 on Ebay. I hope $45 is good enough to qualify as a steal.

I'm sorry, does someone crapting on you when you buy a "mystery box" excuse throwing our pendings into the dumpster for a month, losing the item you offered up and making me settle for something newer of equal monetary value so I could quickly sell it and try to recoup what I lost? raspberry

Like, I said I trusted that you'd do better in the future (and I certainly hope you treat your guys in the relaunch better than you treated me) but downplaying what happened is about the last fudging thing I'd be doing. I would have just dodged the post since it was fairly harmless on its own.

There was the whole thing where you really didn't give a fudge, too. I'd say it's all relevant to the topic at hand. Yes?

You weren't simply "slow to ship". You mislead me several times and I had to BUG you to even get any communication, which generally just got me more lies. Like, you were about a week away from a BTR, I'm not sure why you're dismissing your behavior so easily or pointing at someone else when I'm talking about you. And why you'd expect that I wouldn't still be a bit miffed.

Let me help you with that.

on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:28am KingofGames Absolutely. I go through stretches like this. Typically the more involved a shipping process is, the greater likelihood I will slack off. I had to find my thin CD cases for the DC games, and then the LttP find/misplace really applied the icing to the cake. We'll deal again and I'll be much better, promise.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:25am DiamondDave It's okay. Just glad it's over, lol. This was very uncharacteristic of you, which is the big reason I was disappointed, but you'll do better next time I think.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:24am KingofGames Sorry shipping was so slow on these. I still don't know what I did with LttP. Thanks for being patient while I neglected the trade.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:14am system Trade is complete.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:14am DiamondDave I have received.

on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:43pm KingofGames Yeah, sorry. I meant to message you Saturday. To put things in perspective, I have sold and shipped 116 items on Ebay the past 31 days. Between my full time job, family, relationship, and Ebaying, my free time is virtually non-existent. Ebay peeps won't wait, so you unfortunately took the brunt of the damage. I know GTZ peeps are cool, but I did take advantage in this instance. In any case, thanks for your patience and understanding. Hope you enjoy the DC games.
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:41pm DiamondDave Definitely. * yes *

It was relevant to the topic but you kept having to have the last word. Super unfair, Koggy. You still haven't let us know if you're still going to de prioritize Steals, and it sounds like you're stacked with other responsibilities.

Can I get a "I promise to ship out future steal deals in a timely fashion as originally agreed on with proper communication!", or is that too unreasonable?

I agree.

Anyway, yeah, I can see your guys' points, but I still feel like maybe you're underselling it a little. I guess it would depend on whether you count it as a lot or individually, condition, etc., but it seems to me like a console (assuming it's in good condition) with 2 first party controllers also in good condition (again, assuming) would go for quite a bit on Ebay and the games maybe more than you'd think. Now, I haven't sold in a while, so I could be wrong, but I feel like it's about what he could sell it for vs what he is selling it for. Maybe it's not a "steal" by our standards, but I could see how one would think so, and I do think it's pretty equal discount wise (dollars not percentage) as what he got. Now again, that's not all that makes a "steal," so I could see both sides. I'm just saying.

That bundle won't sell for $100 shipped outside of the thread. I'd be surprised if it sold at $80. Controllers are worth maybe $10 if sold separately but prob will take a while to sell. SMAS is $15 all day. The other games I'm assuming are toss ins. Maybe a few bucks. I'm also just going off of top of my head here so it could be wrong.

The last 3 clean systems I found sold on Ebay (minus any games) were in the $70-80 shipped range with one controller. I agree with $10 for another controller, so that's $80-90ish on Ebay.

Now, again, maybe his system is also yellowed up. Maybe his controllers are third party. Maybe he's shipping media mail. I don't know any of these details.

Here's a system with 2 controllers and SMAS that sold for $95 on Ebay recently.

http://m.ebay.com/itm/Super-Nintendo-Bundle-2-Cont...

The other stuff easily brings it to $110-120. MK is like a $10 game and the other one is like a $20 game.

I think his steal is fine logistically but I also don't think it will get dibbed. Part of the problem is that the SNES is a common system, one that I would imagine most users here that are interested in older games already have (if not more than one). Add to that the fact that it's not too difficult to find one for less and I just think it's a tough sell for GTZ. If it were say, the same value purely in SNES *games* I think it would have been claimed within minutes.

KingofGames
GameTZ Subscriber Bronze Good Trader Has Written 2 Reviews
24-Apr-2017(#35)
The values you guys are assigning are a bit low. Someone suggested $30 for an SNES with 2 controllers and 3 games? That's crazy, considering shipping is about $15. Mario All Stars & Dr. Mario/Tetris are each $20 games. MK is about a $10 games. An SNES with 2 original controllers is $60, even more in better shape. It's definitely at least $100 in value before shipping. So yes, if you would like me to reword it, I will do $55 plus shipping. Show me a similar bundle in that price range and I will adjust further.

@KingofGames You are totally fine with that offer imo, I just think it's a tough sell in this kind of setting (collectors mostly). A clean working SNES is easily $60 even with one controller selling locally or on eBay.

Sorry if I sounded like a douche, your deal was fine, especially factoring shipping. Gtz prices tend to be a bit lower, so it's a toss up.

That just complicates it more, because the same current dibber will just be on the clock again for the same thing.

Once we get going again, there's no issue offering it later because there was renewed interest in that bundle.

Maybe we should just keep the discounted range to $20-$30 since I feel like that's the sweet spot.

You can feel free to discount your steal for more but don't expect the next few dibbers to return the same discount values(I mean they COULD if they choose to)

This way we eliminate the need to constantly stay on top of the discount value watch. Also, as we found out today, bundles are valued at wildly different prices for different people.

How was this in his favor? Because he accepted $2 in 2 years Nioh over Link to the Past? He clearly didn't even want it he took it to end the trade.

It was on his wanted list.

GC happens to be right. I sold it immediately after getting it (same day) because if I sat on it for any period the value would have tanked and the "steal" was no longer a steal, where LTTP holds its value and has the potential for growth.

It was that or nothing in my eyes. The fact that it was on my wanted list had little to do with why I said yes.

Just my side. It seemed logical, sell it quickly and be done with it, or buy Zelda with the profits, thusly someone else fulfilling your end of the trade for you, but in this case I just pocketed the money to pay for shipping on other stuff that was going out. Nioh probably would have held at least $30 for a few more months but the way modern games trend towards $20 two or three months after release lately was a concern obviously; didn't want to take that chance.

But it was a nice coincidence! Sold for $38 shipped, so I pocketed close to $30. Wasn't the worst possible outcome.

I agree. That's a great XB1 steal. I think the only issue is that a lot of people probably don't have an XB1.

ya i would miss my ps4 terribly, its 90+% of my gaming time these days. if scorpio delivers i may be back to using xbox more often for multiplatform stuff like i did the OG and 360 eras, but this gen seems like MS's weakest ever for system selling exclusives.

Yeah I sold my X1 and still have my PS4 Pro and now the Swtich. Have to keep the PS4 for FFX12, FFX7 remake, last of us 2, Also haven't played UC4 yet, and of course we'll have RDR2. Not sure why I'd need an X1, the exclusives just aren't that good, since I don't like FPS games not named Splatoon.

Scorpio will have to look significantly better in 4K to make the switch, but as for now it's much easier to unload PS4 games than X1 for sure.

Ok looks like we got a half hour.

I don't know 3DS prices or PS3 for that matter, so we'll see what the people think. The Switch is my first handheld I have ever owned, so hard for me to judge these things.

Sure. I mean, if we're allowing options, there's no reason why you can't do mix-and-match. Even in tiers. Like a pick 2 tier, a pick 3 tier, etc.

Sega CD oddly has the only localized version of a couple games that were released on a ton of platforms in Japan. Also, yeah the FMV games are pretty much all dogcrap but you gotta look past them. It's a smaller library, but it's not like it's the 32x.

Also, all Saturn games are free, so I'm not sure how they can be overpriced. HUEHUEHUE.

I think that's a great deal. I know people are skeptical of other users trying to use the thread to make a profit, but I just want awesome steals (awesome deals). I don't care so much that they line up 100% with the same discount (not saying yours did or did not).

If it reverts I'd likely take a chance on it. If KOG posted pics I would have insta dibbed assuming it was as nice as he said.

Guys, I don't think this thread is working. The people who took advantage of it last time fudgeed it up. I don't think it's going to recover. On the one side, we're questioning $45 vitas and on the other side, Within offered a controller that's regularly on sale for $40 for $20 when she's getting a $45 vita, so yeah...that one's pretty bad. I know you were trying to come up with stuff. I don't think you're being greedy or purposefully trying to pull a fast one or anything. It's just that I can tell things will continually downgrade until the steals suck again, or just keep reverting.

I think this thread just lost its fun. I think it needs to become more competitive/overhauled or just let it die. I tried to revive it, but I can tell how quickly things will slide downward.

Any recommendations about these flaws you pointed out that are already evident? Too many people want more value, but want less rules... and we can't have both.

I tried to come up with higher value bundles, maybe my values were off. Sorry to offer something so bad I get called out on it. I usually run my offers by those more knowledgeable but I was short on time.

Agree. It's really impossible so sustain that level of steal. KOG kept it reasonable after dibbing a great deal. It's possible that WT just has nothing she would want to offer up in that range, and therefore it needs to go back to the OLED Vita. I have something I could post in exchange if I took the Vita, but then we likely run into the same issue when someone dibs that. I felt similar to you when I offered up Pokemon Sun/Moon, and your deal was EVEN BETTER.

Part of my concern with dibbing, and then offering, is that then eventually something will go undibbed and it folds upon itself like a house of cards. That said I've pended my two transactions and I wouldn't undo them if something like that happened. The thread is kind of on a knife edge.

I agree. As long as people go through with their steals, I'll go through with mine. Someone in the end is going to have to win, but KOG could make it a "giveaway" except just let it be $45. I'd be fine with that. Or if he wants to just sell it to me for $45, so it creates a loop, that's fine too. I don't care.

I think it's the added pressure now of making an offer that doesn't suck. Since everyone is afraid of being called out.

No set of rules is going to be perfect. I thought the thread is running fine. Just don't expect every deal to be $100 discount, then obviously, it's going to be a disappointment.

I think one of the main problems here is "calling people out" publicly. That's causing a lot of people to not want to participate. If someone offers a bad steal, not as high of a value, whatever the case may be... send me a PM, or Lunar... or Dustin.

The public ridicule is what is causing issues. We all want something fun, and competitive, but few have resolutions, more have complaints.

The thread can die and go away, people will get on with their lives. If you want something fun, offer resolutions to improve it. I've implemented resolutions and everyone wants the original method. Fine, there we go. Original dibs system.

The primary issue is values. How do we police values? How can we keep the steals high so people don't run with high valued items for pennies? Maybe this is something that needs to be addressed first before we move forward with the thread. If it can't be fixed, maybe it SHOULD be closed for good.

What do you think about self policing?

Example:

I post: (fake steal obvs.) Earthbound - $100 (with manual)

Stipulation: Following steal must be valued at least: $70

next person dibs and posts: Gunstar Heroes - $70

Stipulation: Following steal must be at least $60

next person dibs and posts: Pokemon Red Blue and Yellow Complete - $60

Stipulation: Following steal must be at least $80


and the process goes on and on... just something I thought of to keep values high and fair. Of course, these are higher values and can fluctuate.

Ideally, it'd be great if people who post steals can put a market value next to their items, so we can clearly see how much they are discounting, but I don't know how enforcing it would look like.

It would require more research before they post, but would be helpful. I think requiring the following steal be a certain price is very beneficial.

@DiamondDave Also Tatsujin is AWESOME. Loops after the first are cry inducing. I wanted to include a really damn fine game, since I'm getting one from you in Super Metroid.

I had the bundle pegged around $170, and I tend to stick to the lower side of values typically. Willing to hear input from others though.

I'm pretty sure that's just a side-effect of playing a Japanese Genesis cart on USA hardware; lots of titles had all revisions on them but picked what was played based on what region the system was. Streets of Rage converts to Bare Knuckle on a Megadrive, and vice versa.

It'll slow it down. Honestly judging from the way these steals have been going recently I think currently we're doing a fairly good job self-policing and explaining our values as is, while still giving people a chance to offer something acceptable in return for a good deal. I think the last time it got shut down because the offers were all crap people got scared, rightly so. You can take something nice and give something nice in return, this time around so far has been much higher quality than the first time. If someone parks $30 worth of PSN credit for $15, when people look at what they dibbed, their offer would probably bounce off in a few hours whereas last time it was just an all-you-can-eat crap buffet.

That opinion will change if I see quality offers drop obviously but at that point we can re-visit the value proposition.

a lot of people say that unless they are looking at them side by side they don't notice much difference. I think the biggest advantage to the oled is better brightness and probably some color but the version 2 can be charged with a standard cord instead of the proprietary? proprietary stuff I think hurt sony's handhelds. I know people who looked at the expense of the cards etc and said no thanks.

@Whitefire I think that offering is fine. No idea what a PS3 w/ a broken disc drive would really be worth. But it's an easy fix, comes with two controllers, a game and more in eshop credit than you are charging. Definitely a nice and cheap way for someone to get into PS3.

@Jeff I understand keeping the values the same

Tough to quantify/qualify that for me. I don't know. I feel like the spirit is a great steal. I thought, for instance, that MK8D for $15 was a crazy good steal. Sure, we all know many people got their copies for like $35 due to the Best Buy deals, but still, it's a brand new high demand game for $15.

The crappy part is that this stopped working because too many people intentionally looked at it in terms of value (just trying to profit off of the people who are actually in the spirit of this), so it was ruined. The same thing happens with every virtual box. Maybe I'm just a pessimist and biased from my virtual box experience. I feel like it's more of a give and take and great steals and this was a fun way to finally leave value at the door and just get great stuff for great prices.

You win some, you lose some. Sure, I know KOG can make more of a profit off of my stuff than the difference between what he sold the vita for and what he could have gotten. I'm not saying he intentionally made sure of that. I'm just saying it is what it is. It doesn't matter though because he got a great steal and gave a great steal. If your steal isn't up to par, it will revert. That's why, with the risk of sounding like a broken record, I like the idea of competition, but I can see why people like to keep it simple too.

Whatever. After this, I'm done for a while. I hope my "revival" worked, and this gets some good traction and goes strong. I'll check in from time to time. All in all, I still think this was a great idea, Jeff. It just sucks that it gets boiled down to money. When this gets going strong, I'd still like to try my idea in another thread. I'll keep in touch on that front.

I know people like large steals but those are not really sustainable. One way to keep it simple would be to limit offers to 1-3 items and an expected range of discount. People can go above if they want but only this range is expected. You could say $25-50 off (I realize this is somewhat subjective). Everyone already expects a similar steal but with a range being specified and fewer items it may be easier to run. People will also be able to participate more if they don't throw all their extra stuff into one lot.

Agreed, but i think he is trying to reciprocate for the great bundle he got.

Definitely was.

On a side note, I think that's a great steal up. I'm curious to see if it will go. Some of the issue with posting in that thread, although it's great, is the narrow customer base limits your potential buyers, so if it's something that only a subset of people (like competitive FPS gamers) would care about, it could be a tough sale. Fantastic to the right buyer though.

If you need a PS2 lmk. I have my last extra (that I would part with, probably shouldn't say how many I keep) slated to send to a buddy right now, but I run into them pretty frequently. Lately I've been trading them into to Amazon mostly, but we could probably work something out.

what day did we start? maybe end it on a sunday night so it can run through the weekend when more people may be available?

and how will we handle who is up last? they start next time?

It started last Friday, it was only scheduled to run for a week at a time.

My main concern is people getting good deals and posting up $15 steals in return -- which is still happening.

I'm most likely going to implement the concept of requesting the following steal be X amount. That seems to be helpful especially if it's priced by the person offering the steal (see KOG's post for EB)

Beyond good steals!

I'm ok either way, to let it run until midnight tomorrow or sunday night!

Maybe this was already covered, but how is the loop closed? Does the last dibber offer something up to the poster of the initial steal?

Yours don't count. You price them at $15 but they're worth more... there have been other instances though where $15=$15

What I don't understand is inconsistency between the options. One option could be a decent deal and another is just downright crap or maybe borderline OK. Not talking about anyone specific, just see one every few whiles.

It doesn't the person who posts the last steal just has to keep the item(s) they're offering, and it goes right back up again once the thread re-opens.

Correct? @Jeff

Or do they just come up with a steal once the thread resumes?

The main thing I don't understand is that since they don't have to pend with the next person, what's keeping them from just taking the steal they got and running?

Well, since it's the first time we've ended it after a week, maybe we can require the final steal to be of lesser value ($10-15?) ? that way it won't be as big of a deal if they do not choose to pick up next time around?

Not entirely sure how to close the loop in a way that may be fair

One way we can do it is to have someone who gave more than they got back end the thread with their dibs. I'd say whitefire and Missle are good candidates. This has the added bonus of giving them something back.
whitefire
GameTZ Subscriber 550 Trade Quintuple Gold Good Trader Global Trader - willing to trade internationally This user is on the site NOW (2 minutes ago)

@Jeff But then someone gets a great item and then only has to give up something cheap. Plus, when it resumes, the thread will suck.

Also, if someone gets their item before the thread closes, they can offer junk 3 weeks later because it can't revert (they already have it).

Or should we make it so that the second to the last person posts a steal, then the last person dibs and posts their steal, but the second to the last person only pends with the last person but doesn't send until the second to the last person's item is dibbed? That would help solve this, right?

Ex:

Lunar posts a steal, Dashey dibs. Now the thread is closed until the next month. Lunar pends with Dashey but doesn't send until the next month when someone dibs Dashey's steal. If it reverts, they can just cancel the trade.

Maybe we can also give a little extra time to Dashey since he's the first to post one the thread re-opens.

It's also ok if Dashey's steal changes because he hasn't been sent Lunar's steal yet. Lunar, however, has to hold on to the same stuff (but that will be easy since it's already been pended).

Lastly, if Lunar doesn't fullfill his end, Dashey can hit him with a BTR easily since they have a pended trade.

Not a bad idea, but determining who gave the most is going to be difficult to do... since I feel KOG gave the most. However, it does incentivize people to give more in order to get the final dib instead of being cheap.

But then someone has to take one for the team every month (post a steal when they haven't gotten one). That's asking a lot, I think.

I also agree with you, Jeff. Most? We talking quantitative, qualitative? Who decides this and how. Sounds like a whole can a worms to me.

Makes sense... just weighing options here.

I think the last person to dib like you said -- will lead off next month. Maybe we can set a beginning of the month value requirement of $50 or higher to get started off strong... so

Jeff posts steal
Lunar dibs
(we wait until next month)
Lunar posts steal $50+
whitefire dibs
whitefire posts steal
Dashey dibs
Jeff pends deal with Lunar

pretty much what you said, except we are just pausing it until the following month. An offer can be sent in order to remind them

whitefire

Not necessary because the thread will still work. If Dashey's steal sucks, it will revert back to Lunar's steal (who still has the item(s) since he hasn't sent to Dashey yet). I think that's simplest method, and as you've said, the less additional rules, the better, since people seem to prefer it that way.

That's a good point I didn't think of that. Someone would need to offer up something for nothing to start if we went that route. You could have them be the last dibs but I think adding a delay might be a better option.

The problem with this is that Jeff can still run away with the items because he got the previous steal (the one he dibbed) without having to pend with Lunar.

If it reverts back to the 3DS games, I might snag them. I was going to take a break, but they're awfully tempting.

The current steal is live until 12:04PM PST (3:04 PM EST). Correct?

Doesn't excuse the fact he could have taken 5 seconds to post and let us all know. Instead the thread was stuck in limbo for a day. If he had the time to log in and freeze his account he also had time to make a courtesy post.

It was a few hours I believe, not an entire day. Plus, that was before we went back to 1 dibber only. We have to figure out what works in order to perfect the system.

I feel the only thing we need to work on now is the value aspect of this and then we may be able to keep it moving forward without taking breaks. But, that's just from my eyes. Does anyone else see any other weaknesses?

It can keep on going back until someone picks up the steal, it may mean trades could possibly have to be deleted... which is the primary downfall of mercy steals (dibbing even if you dont want to / putting up lackluster steals)

I think theoretically until someone has already sent out their trade. At that point, you can't go back anymore for obvious reasons.

Hope it doesn't revert anymore than that, because me and KOG already worked out the trade.

Not likely. This just happened to be a case where an apparently less than desirable (for whatever reason) to most steal was still dibbed. Typically, that wouldn't be an issue. I'm sure multiple users are going to try to "snipe" (for lack of a better word) KOG's last steal.

In fact, this situation gives credence to others' argument (the one I was against) that this system is auto-policing, and we don't need a ton of extra rules to make it work. It's more about the proper exposure and the users who participate.

Jeff

Agreed... KOG has posted up a TON of great stuff. This thread does police itself... if you take something great and try to put up 30 copies of Super Mario Bros / Duck Hunt, they will literally sit. Which is why I've removed the "if nobody takes your steal, you're penalized" rule. Your penalization is that you don't get the item you dibbed.

I'm going to be putting the thread in my signature and if anyone else wants to, it could help give exposure to the thread when it gets up and running monthly.

I'm just glad the system is working. If you are looking back and saw us go from Earthbound to the last steals offered, that just sucks, but then again, it reverts back to awesome stuff, so the system works.

Mother is my favorite series and I still don't have it in my current SuperNES collection (I do have SFC Mother 2 tho actually), but after paying $45 for my og copy and $100 for my second copy (both gone whenever i sold my collections) I cannot get over the cart being ~$200 now and will never pay that much for it. $90 with a bad back (easily fixed with a screwdriver and a fresh back from some other cart) would've been a price I could pull the trigger on though. Guess the real lesson is don't get rid of your collections wink I'll be happy to offer up some good stuff when nice steals like that go up.

Wow. Lufia II reverted? How much was he asking? Seems crazy. What does Lufia go for, $80-90? Try posting for $35 shipped and see what happens. Two $60 games ($48 + tax with GCU/Prime) adds up to $120 + tax (or $96 + tax), so I think you'd still be in the green.

It reverted because it had label damage, and he also offered like 2-3 other items in the same bundle. So, people had other choices. I wanted the Lufia, but didnt have anything at the time to throw on here

My lufia 2 has label damage, no way it would be taken without making it free.

I dont remember what he was asking, but it was a very good price and had a manual I think

Gotcha, I didn't know. What about Lufia 1 and 2 for $60 shipped? Would that work for you?

You don't have to, of course. Your stuff. I'm just trying to see if I can help you out. A player interested in both might jump on $120+ (Ebay/Amazon) worth of Lufia for $60, and it sounds like you'd get something you want for something you don't without losing much if anything at all (+ you'll be $25 richer, haha).

Well the catch is (as seen in my last 2 steals) I need something to cover cost of previous steal.

Would you pay $35 for this?

I normally wouldn't do this, but who would have a problem with a future steal (items not releasing for months? I actually want those DS games. I could give up Skyrim and Super Mario Oddysey for close to the same price as the last two, but they're so far out.

I feel indifferent about it, but it depends on the price you're wanting to offer them for. I prefer to have items in hand... but if you make it clear that they haven't come out yet, then the dibber is aware.

Agreed... Im not crazy about offering a steal on a preorder. Its better if the items are in hand... like MK8 or something was great. But MO, while it will be easy to find and sought after... its prob best to have it in hand.

Just make a qualitative baseline. You have to be at least as reliable as whitefire. I'm not that reliable, so it should be easy, haha.

I was thinking about a ps4 lot to get the wii u games.. would have had horizon, Nathan drake collection, lego batman and maybe another pretty cheap. I have most of the wii u lot but nintendo stuff is always easy to trade for things I need, but I'd have just had to get horizon again, and I can just trade Nathan batman and exist archive as easily as the wii u ones prob.

We dont want to start a thread where everyone is offering preorders, stick to items you have in hand. It's best to go that route for everyone's sanity.

And I do have items to light it up... but, I dont want to do it on a newer release (one thats not even out yet!)

Well we allow digital items too.

I think pre orders makes it more fun, I'd love to get Odyssey or Splatoon 2 etc.. Just me tho it's your thread.

If everyone offers pre-orders, Im sure thats what this thread may become... just preorders and the occasional physical game here and there. Then people will start promising LE's, SE's, etc... That's not the direction the thread should be headed.

also, because pre-orders "automatically" have a value of $50 because they haven't come out yet. Or whatever value they may be... it's not fair to those who are putting together lots to meet a certain price point.

I actually don't think we should do more preorders. It just opens a can of worms. Or if we do do it then it has to be coming out in a month or less.

I knew more people would want to try it since "if whitefire can do it, why can't I?"

Majora's Mask / Fierce Deity Link: Fierce Deity Mask, Fierce Deity Armor, Fierce Deity Boots, Fierce Deity Sword.
