RPG Deals 7/12 – 7/18

Summer is the time for community and the occasional deal.

I’m not referring to your Xbox Live or PSN friends, either.

GameStop had a very good sale this week and is trying to keep the momentum up this summer. It’s called the July sale and I did not report it because it started on a Wednesday. Quite frankly, I missed it due to its odd timing. The second half kicks off the fifteenth and runs through the seventeenth, so check on their website for any offers.

I may not have more than two of them, but my friends and I do our best to introduce each other to new games. If you are over at a friend’s house to hang out and the friend shows you a game of interest, why not try to get said friend interested in one of your games? Bring over a copy of Lost Odyssey if they have just beaten Shadow Hearts, or Tactics Ogre for Fire Emblem. Either arrange to borrow or trade the game and enjoy it. It certainly beats trading in several games to some retailer in order to purchase one of them. If you have a lot of friends, you might be able to find yourself in games for awhile – and for cheap.

Some of you might have a problem hitting up your friends for games, and I entirely respect that. It might seem weird, or cross some boundaries you are uncomfortable with. Or maybe you are unsure if a game gets borrowed how it will return to you. When visiting, look for these criteria:

By excessive animals, I mean the place is not clean because there are too many animals to keep up with.

While the above are good tips to tell the situation, such tips are not always a guilty verdict. Trial and error will decide with whom lending is a viable option. With trading games, it is not your problem anymore.

Totally ignoring my jab at friends lists, some forums and website have a close enough community to swap games with. It’s all trial and error, though.

Enjoy your week, and check out those endcaps for deals. Happy Hunting.
