So I recently bought 30+ ps2 games from Gamestop.com, I know they are not guaranteed, but I got a boat load of great titles however they threw me a fast one when only 8 actually had case art and half those had manuals:bomb:

So if anyone could help me find or sell me some Original Case Art and Manuals to match these I will be Highly appreciative. I looked all over ebay but only could find Shadow hearts case art only.:cry: Please post links of anywhere with reasonable prices that you know of.

Case + Manual needed
Shadow Hearts
King of Fighters 2002 and 2003
Magna Carta: Tears of Blood
Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm
Fatal Frame
Sniper Elite
Shining Force NEO
Stella Deus
Ys: The Ark of Napishtim
Castlevainia Curse of Darkness
Ar Tonelico 1 + 2
Atelier Iris 2

Manual's Need
Mister Mosquito
Xenosaga 3
Shining Force EXA

I can offer $2 + shipping for each set of items you can find me, if you go to your local gamestop and say that you purchaced a game recently and they neglected to have the original stuff they will give you it for free. Someone could easy rake up $20+ finding this stuff for me.

Don't forget the pepto bismol and toilet paper to prevent any further bullshit from spewing out. ;)

See this is why I don't buy used games. Not only do you run this risk when you're ordering games online, but if you buy them in the store you have those annoying stickers all over the boxes that you can NEVER completely get off. I know you can get some good deals on used games, but I prefer to keep my games looking great, just like their owner. Just keepin it real.

Word to the wise: You might be better off lowballing some ebay auctions for those games complete and then sell off the disc-only critters to get your money back.

Goo-B-Gone, Lighter Fluid, 3M Industrial Strength Adhesive Remover, Hair Dryer on Hot + Time.

There you go, four ways to completely remove the stickers, all tried and true. If one doesn't work, the others will cover for it.

Tell you what I'll give you one better. Don't be poor and just buy new games. That way you don't have to deal with any of that lame shit, and you get brand new disks and cases. I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I'm not ten years old waiting for birthday money to buy used games anymore. If you can't just buy them new, you probably shouldn't be spending your money on games anyway. Save up and move out of your parents place first.

Going on eBay or Amazon Marketplace is a good idea for finding deals on NEW games, if you're unwilling to jump in the car, go to the store and pick something up.

Dude, it's CHEAP ASS gamer. There's deals to be had with used game purchases.

And there isn't any reason to be so damn hostile. Sorry we all can't afford to pay for brand new games.

This man speaks the truth. I, for one, am broke solely because some random douchebag on the internet never told me "don't be poor." You've turned my life around.

Whatever am I going to do with my newfound wealth and power?

Buy brand new games for MSRP + Taxes + Shipping costs for Day 1 delivery.

Mock people who buy used games and spit on their children.

No, no, no. As we all known you can find deals on this website. I've done it, you've done it, we've all done it. I'm just saying that I would rather buy new games. I'm not saying that I always drive down to Best Buy and grab the $60 games. I find deals on here, but I only buy new games. It's just me, just my opinion, it's what I do.

I will spit on anyone's children though. I do that too. And I might mock people....sometimes.

The problem with MUA and Forza 2 is that bundle pack, where people would trade in just one game. Sorry about your loss.

hey lets not get off topic, I've started to buy some new games but lets get real, I'm not spending $50 on a game I can get at gamestop used for $10 then get another 33% off that plus free shipping. I took the risk, but can I find case art and a manual for the $43 I saved? Duh.

If any of you can contribue any other helpful sites I would appreciate it as I've only been able to find 3 items.

Unless it's some game I really REALLY want(GTA IV, GTA Episodes, Red Dead Redemption) there's no way in hell I'm paying for a new copy when I spent $15 for a Game Informer subscription and EDGE card for a year(from cheap credit) AND there's some codes to take even MORE off of my order if I order from their site.

Anyway, to the OP, why didn't you just go to the local Gamestop and have them look for the cases/artwork/manuals for you there? That's what many people are doing when getting incomplete and crappy condition games from Gamestop's website. You can probably use the stock locator thing to at least determine which stores have the bulk of the games you need the case/artwork/manual for before even going down there and it'd be way easier than expecting the smartasses on here to do your work for you.;)

I usually do but I actually checked all the stores within the area, I can't drive 90 miles to indiana just to get case art for these games, plus they are hard to find complete.

OK, buddy- as someone who's been looking for art/manuals off and on for her collection for quite some time, I have some advice for you:

You're kinda screwed.

No, really- very, very few people are selling cases and manuals, and the selection is terrible. For games you've got, there's a good chance the empty case will cost you MORE than buying the game over again- that happened when I was hunting down my Vagrant Story case. I was outbid on the case, only to get a whole game buy-it-now for 10 bucks less than the case-only auction closed at.

You'd be best off printing your own cover art online (start at The Cover Project). Use photo paper, the results will be nearly flawless. Otherwise, you're going to have to be very, VERY paitent and hope things turn up eventually. Do know that you're looking at $5-10 dollars per set- for a lot of games, it will be easier to just re-buy the whole thing.
