5 Xbox 360 games for $5 Each plus AWESOME REACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's been a while since I did a blog here on Giant Bomb.
 
So I went to GameStop to pick up Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.  After I get the game, my friend texts me to go to Blockbuster.  I said "Why?"  He says "They are selling everything for $5."  So apparently my Blockbuster is going out of business and they have to sell everything quick.  Old stuff to new stuff, $5 each.  I had $25 to spend so these are the games I got.
 

 
If I had more money I would have got a few more, but sadly, I don't.  I was hoping to find Deadly Premonition there, but didn't see it.  If I went right when they opened, I could have got Red Dead for $5.      :(
 
My brother got a shit ton of movies and some games like Crackdown 2.
 
So if you have a Blockbuster in your area, check and see if anything is going on. 
 
Also.......................AWESOME REACH!!!!!!!! 
 
  
   
 
That is all my friends. 
 
P.S.

what did i just watch

That's still awesome. Any sale is a good sale.
 
I'm up in Canada, so there's no fire sales yet for Blockbuster. But I'm keeping ears open.

You might be waiting awhile for any sales up here. Blockbuster Canada is a different company, at least last time I checked, and aren't going bankrupt.  
 
Although I hope they do soon, $5 games, can't say no to that.

Yeah, my friend mentioned they're a different beast. I can't imagine they're all that much better off than US Block Buster.
 
But a fire sale would be so rad. Besides the whole thousands of people losing their jobs...

That is exactly how I imagine the Halo fans.

i hate everyone after watching that.

That video was great.

One big distinction is that Netflix has been competing against and killing Blockbuster in the U.S. for years/

Holy fuck Awesome Reach xD

Nice find dude! Maybe I'll go camp my Blockbuster in hopes that they close that one soon. For some reason it's still clinging onto life, but eventually it will go. 

Posted by WilliamRLBaker
SHIT! I'ma have to see if either of the block busters in my area are going under....

Afro Samurai and Ninja Blade are great.

True. I'll have to give it a year or two.

I did not buy Halo Reach, but they did sell it earlier in the day for $5.  Or maybe not, my friend said they sent back everything they got in the last 45 days.

Well shit I'll have to check that out.

Posted by dbz1995

That Reach video blew my mind.

Posted by LiquidPrince

Cool.

Posted by SpudBug

I'd love to get ninja blade for $5. Have wanted to try that game.

Posted by JJOR64
@SpudBug:   It's still $25 used at GameStop right?
Posted by xMP44x

Sounds like you got some excellent deals! I wish I was as lucky with the prices, but I'm stunned they would let Red Dead Redemption go for $5. A game as new as that would have been about $10, I would have thought. Perhaps not. 

Posted by WilliamRLBaker

damn! two local Block busters don't seem to be going under.

Posted by RichardLOlson

Gonna find out if there are any close by to me tomorrow, hope they are going out of business.

Edited by xyzygy

This is why I have a massive amount of more games for my 360 than PS3, every Blockbuster, EB, Gamestop, Walmart, etc I go to has amazing prices on used games and a massive variety. I don't know why but whenever I go to these stores, I can always find 360 games there (multiplat ones included) more than PS3 ones and at awesome prices.  
 
Mind you, the prices I see aren't THAT crazy because none of the stores I seen were going out of business. But they were still good deals nonetheless. I got all the games you mentioned excluding Tenchu Z for 10 - 15$ each, all from Blockbuster.

Yo what's up dude?  Anyway, I am getting 50% off on Lords of Shadow because a guy I know decided to import 4 instead of 1. I lucked out big time.. might buy two copies from him :)
Posted by JJWeatherman

Damn. I best check out my Blocky-B's.

Posted by TheGreatGuero

Awesome. Too bad you missed out on Red Dead, though. 
 
Of the games you've purchased, I only played Prince of Persia 2008. I really loved it, but a lot of people dislike it. Sure, it holds your hand too much with the gameplay, but I still think the game is solid enough and everything else about it really impressed me.

Posted by ESREVER

I wonder if Egoraptor is still right in the head... 
 
Nah... but damn if he doesn't come up with some bizarre entertaining shit.

Posted by Stealthmaster86

It's been a while since I've seen those "Awesome" videos. That was pretty fucked up, but it was still funny as hell.

Posted by DrPockets000

So I was having a bad day and I wanted to crush a squirrel with my bare hands.   
 
And then I watched that video and laughed harder than I have laughed in almost 6 months.

Great deal on the games man, and oh my fucking gawd, halo reach...That video is fucking hilarious.

Posted by BraveToaster

That was a good video. My Blockbusters is still kicking so I'm playing the waiting game.

Posted by Jolt92

Great video! And Prince of Persia is certainly worth 5$.

Blockbuster I went to seemed normal - no clearance items.

Posted by j_meyer_13

It is my opinion that $5 is too much for Too Human.
 
There's probably a witty pun hiding in there somewhere, but I'm too tired/sick to tease it into existence.
