Checkpoint: Purging the Generation Edition


As this console generation winds down I’ve begun to purge the excess console games. I’m getting rid of games I don’t wish to replay, redundant games that I’ve replaced with PC versions or just games I don’t want in my collection.

I’m not going down the route of eBay; it’s straight to EB Games. Who’s going to buy a copy of Splinter Cell: Conviction or SOCOM 4? Even if EB Games gives me a $1.30 for Splinter Cell: Conviction, I’m going to give it to them. That’s probably how much ends up my pocket if I put it on eBay anyways.

I don’t recommend dropping into an EB Games without taking advantage of a promotion though. I’m going to take these games in and trade them towards Luigi’s Mansion 2. An additional 30% to the trade in value — which you can find here — is better than nothing.

I’m still working through Rayman: Origins and playing lots of MechWarrior: Online. I’m feeling more optimistic about the future of MechWarrior: Online after the developers put forth a revised version of their “consumables” plan. I can’t believe they thought their original plan was a good idea.
