A year’s worth of Mythical Pokémon distribution celebrating the series’ 20 year anniversary kicks off today with the original gangster, Mew. Hit up GameStop for a code to grab a level 100 version of his royal cuteness for X and Y, Alpha and Omega.
The next game from Insomniac (Ratchet & Clank, Sunset Overdrive) is called Song of the Deep. It’s an underwater metroidvania-style action-adventure that’ll be out for PC and consoles this summer. Published by GameStop, interestingly enough.
Redditor Vernm51’s parents couldn’t find a copy of Pokemon HeartGold for the DS locally for Christmas, so they ordered it online from GameStop—and received a bootleg copy that didn’t work.
While the most exciting deal of GameStop’s 2015 Black Friday sale is letting employee’s take all of Thanksgiving off, $299 PlayStation 4 and Xbox One bundles, $80 used PS3 and Xbox 360 systems and the best possible Wii U bundle aren’t too shabby either.
Despite your deliberately ham-fisted GameStop commercial starring the ever-charming Guillermo, I will not preorder The Taken King, because preordering is bad. And also I already preordered it on PSN.
Video game store horror stories are so plentiful I had to round up a whole new batch to share all the best ones readers sent in. There’s the typical stock of pre-order bullshit, but these stories span ridiculous levels of rudeness.
You won’t believe this, because they’re so subtle, but every so often EB Games—the Australian outpost of GameStop— has a sale.
Very soon, GameStop will start buying and selling classic games and hardware—Wired’s got a new interview with some specifics on the upcoming program, which will include NES, SNES, N64, Genesis, PS1, and Dreamcast games and systems.
During January's sojourn to Kotaku headquarters in NYC, I stopped by the fabled Video Games New York, where I picked up a scratched but serviceable PlayStation 2 for $80. Today GameStop announced it is once again accepting trade-ins of the best-selling game system of all time. My timing sucks.
We’re updating this post with all the latest information on the hot limited edition Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL. Updates will be listed in reverse chronological order, with the newest info we have on top.
Coming soon to a GameStop near you, the Mass Effect trilogy gets a series of Minimates figures to collect in the most annoying way possible.
At a GameStop event in California earlier this month, a 10-year-old girl trashed pro-level opponents at a special Super Smash Bros. Wii U demo. Quickly proven fake, GameStop finally comes clean on how "Karissa the Destroyer" cleaned up.
Let's take a minute to be grateful for Thanksgiving's annual traditions: turkey, football, and GameStop's Black Friday deals leaking before they're supposed to go live.
Shiny Gengar haunts U.S. GameStop locations today.Today through October 26, trainers with a copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y can receive a special code card containing Shiny Gengar holding a Gengarite Mega Stone at participating GameStop locations. Don't miss out, as I doubtlessly will.
Remember back in 2012 when GameStop started allowing customers to trade in original Skylanders figures for store credit, and the customer service folk were completely miserable? Now GameStop is accepting Skylanders and Disney Infinity figures. Update: I traded some, check out what I got for them below.
"Red Alert: Renew Immediately" was the subject line GameStop used to let me know I would soon be adrift in a sea of no savings. PowerUp Rewards is serious business. Yikes.
GameStop is overhauling trade-ins and launching a new program that will wind up giving people more money for the games they sell, Kotaku has learned.
It's always a bit difficult to gauge the legitimacy of such things, e.g. whether a store employee stuck this on this GameStop shelf just long enough to take a picture or whatever. Either way I'm amused by this ugliness, as a Mass Effect guy.
