Like someone said, Hastings is probably strict in store when it comes to trade ins so that's why your most likely to get complete games when ordering from them.
Game case manual? Last I looked my complaint dealt with a LOT more than just a game case manual. In all honesty, if I received a game that was just missing a manual then I wouldn't have an issue. My issue with Gamestop deals with almost every aspect of the game possible. The game case, condition of the game case, game manual, cover art, and even the condition of the disc in many cases. Game manual, lol. Oh and by the way, 5 of the 6 games I ordered were newer games, released within the last 4 months. Besides, the point of my post was to let people know what a great experience I had with my GoHasting order, a perfectly relevant statement given this thread is a GoHastings thread.
As for the you cant believe it part....well, believe it because I will continue to pass on any information I believe to be relevant to this forum and that includes my dealings with internet orders and yes, that includes information that you may or may not deem to be common knowledge. Personally, I cant believe that there are still people on the internet that make posts like yours, posts that add absolutely nothing to a thread but bitching and moaning. They do nothing but clog up threads with completely irrelevant crap and most importantly, the people for whom they were intended never give a rats behind anyways and yes, that includes me. Next time you come across a post of mine that somehow boggles your mind, for whatever reason, simply ignore it.
And to get things back on the proper track, I received the rest of my GoHastings order, 3 more games, and not only was each game 100% complete and in great condition, 1 of the games was brand new and still shrink wrapped (Call of Duty World at War). I thought maybe I had made the mistake but I went back and checked the receipt and sure enough I ordered it used. I also checked my credit card online and I was charged the appropriate amount. Maybe they ran out of that particular game and decided to just toss in a new copy. Whatever the reason, it was a nice bonus. All in all I am really happy with my order and will definitely be ordering from GoHastings again in the future.
By the way, the people that are letting GoHasting's peculiar shipping method deter them from placing an order are only losing out. In the end the only thing that matters is the price you paid and the condition of the game. Whether your paying 1.00 for the game + 9.00 shipping or 10.00 for the game + free shipping or even 5 dollars for the game + 5 dollar shipping, it makes no difference whatsoever. You would think people who belonged to a forum dealing with getting the best deals would understand that. Oh well, to each their own. Its their loss.
