I feel honored to be one of the first, if not the first, to be featured on the new GFC throne. I also feel equally excited to be getting my game for next weekend! Such a good couple of weeks!

It seems that unfortunately MDR isn't going to be a PSN network game -- kinda bummed about that.

What's the cheapest price you can get on MNR Goomb?

I also wish 3D Dot Game Heroes was on the network instead of on disc... The game for $40 is too expensive for my liking.

from rogan's wall of amusing text.

It's the same reason I spent a shit load of money on an R4 mod for my DS -- I own all the games I pirate (the good ones anyway), but I like having everything on 1 cartridge.

I'm curious how much, saw that was going to mention http://www.dealextreme.com/ but apprently they don't have them there anymore, but they do have tons of other stuff, and google has everything :)

Goomba Very important! Order #103032624. There was something in the auction that i didn't notice. Is there anyway you could talk to the ebay seller and come to a mutual cancel and use some of the money to reimuburse his listing if needed?

Speaking of which, how solid are the Beatles' instruments in comparison to the regular ones? If I'm going to go with the PS3 version, I'd like some heavier-duty instruments. Are they actually better quality, or do they just have a Beatles appearance?

I know you've got those instruments Goomba, I think you're selling them? I'd be interested in buying but I imagine the shipping would be an absolute deal killer... :/

I know logitech also has the quite expensive premium instruments for Guitar Hero, and I'd probably even consider it if it was a RB set, but it's not, and I'm not dishing out that kind of dough for a set that isn't perfectly matched to my game :(

Rogan, $45 shipped for MNR (no real deals that I know of at the moment).

Xover, I don't believe it'll be possible. I used the sniping program and have already agreed to pay him so yeah I'm sorry, but I can't cancel at this time. You could always have me relist it if you really wanted to on eBay, but please in the future be careful about what you bid and be sure you read everything in the description. Again, happy we won it for a good price but sorry you changed your mind. If I had known before the auction ended I could have changed it but it's too late now :( sorry buddy.

emjaymj, yeah the shipping probably does kill the deal for most of the Beatles instruments (though not all of them are really heavy..mostly just the drums). They are more sturdy and feel better than the standard instruments though. Not sure if they're higher quality plastics or what but definitely have a nice feel to them.

Shanku, the ones I have shipped were the standard version. I will let you know once I have the deluxe version how much it weighs/costs to ship. Thanks!

A friendly reminder: today was not really much of a GFC-processing day as I had to work until almost 10 at night and have to get up early to work tomorrow at the University. I will, however, be bringing my laptop with em to start typing up DR's and PF invoices and will be shipping and packing and invoicing further from 5PM-1AM Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week.

By the weekend I hope to be totally caught up with all current orders and will start putting together a giant Lowball to help me gain back some of the money I lost from last week's tragic incident. Thanks for your support guys. I'm going to pack a few more packages now and will continue processing tomorrow (technically today as it's past 1:00 AM now). Thanks again!

Goomba!

Just wondering how much you think Death Smiles (Limited Edition) http://www.amazon.co...72435729&sr=1-3
would weigh approximately considering the contents? Once I have a few extra $$ next month (hopefully) I would like to put in a DR for it, but the page doesn't list a weight so I'm not sure exactly how I would enter it on your page. I could honestly probably do without all the extra addons that come with the LE package but by the looks of it, that's the only way the game is being released.

I can't believe the game is actually coming to a N.America release! Soon as I saw it I know I gotta put in an order as a big fan of shmups!! :D :bouncy:

Thanks Goomba. Hope all is well! Been awhile since I've called upon your services! :)

PS. Amazon(dot)ca lists the same item as $65CDN (+tax) for it. I am aiming for a total lower than that (if possible) with the good exchange rate at the moment.

CrushEm, things are alright for the most part. I royally screwed up last week and lost $2400+ USD Cash at work and that was a major blow, but I'm slowly recovering and several CAGs and GFC friends chipped in to help me and the orders have been crazy busy lately which is good too :)

As for the Deathsmiles game I am really interested in that as well (I so want that faceplate!) and I estimate it should be no more than 2 pounds shipped, and realistically probably only 1.5 pounds. So you'd definitely save shopping with us on it :) No tax either ^_^

Here's my estimate:

Deathsmiles Limited Edition Set (Xbox 360):

$50.00 - Game Cost
$09.00 - Shipping Estimate (1.5 Pounds)
$02.00 - GFC Service Charge

-------------------------------
$61.00 USD SHIPPED (No Tax!)

Hey Goomba, just to let you know, gamestop.com has a 15% off coupon for alot of games. The kicker is that some of these games also include a $10 credit coupon code that you can use on the site for future orders.

Just wondering if you will accept orders for these games with the $10 off and you keep the coupon?

They have a 25% off coupon that I THINK works until the end of April. The catch is that the order must be over $100.

As far as him keeping the coupon (I assume you mean instead of a fee?), I can't say whether he'd accept that or not but that $10 credit seems to be in response to an Amazon.com promotion doing the same thing, which stipulates you can only get the $10 credit once (per unique title of course.) I know Goomba's unclear on whether or not Gamestop is going to have the same terms, but they do a lousy job at laying it out - that is to say, not at all - and I can't imagine they'd just let people rack up credits like that, especially when they just seem to be parroting Amazon, so I think it is largely a futile request unless the game you want hasn't been ordered yet.

Yeeeesh!! Leave some for the rest of us... :cry: I pre-ordered SC and they were totally out of keys already. I was || <--- that close to sticking my thumb in my mouth, dropping to the floor, and assuming the fetal position. Thank god it didn't get to that point though, man it would have been embarrassing. No, I was too busy with more adult preoccupations, like seeking brutal vengeance :twisted: against all who managed to get the key(s) and leave me with none!

Since you seem to know Goomba fairly well though, I will at least do the courtesy of informing you that hoarders are at the very top of the list :twoguns:

That's why I would leave it up to Goomba to make a contest where you'd have to be friendly in this thread... I'm just seeing if I have one more spare.

Yeah... I have a ridic amount of keys because blizzard keeps sending me more. Like every month, you get 1 extra key to "invite a friend"... I just happened to start with several accounts for all my friends who don't play.

Posted 28 April 2010 - 05:55 PM

blackric, yes I can do that. Just remember Gamestop charges 6% tax (so many people forget this when sending payments). I think in the near future I will have a "Current Sales" page on the GFC site with a list of game sales that have NOT been taken up by other shoppers. So that way you can see which games, sites and sales are still available. What do you think? I think it could work since many sales are first-come-first-served.

Rogan, that would be AWESOME! If you'd donate one I promise I could come up with something :) Thanks!

emjaymj, as long as the credit is not crippled by any restrictions and I can put it towards other CAG/GFC users orders then I don't mind taking the $10 credit and simply knocking $10 off the price. Just keep in mind Gamestop still charges the tax on that $10 which would be included in the item cost.

helluvagood, don't worry I have all of your info. I will invoice you for it and will ship it out as soon as it's in :) Thanks!

I didn't think you would have a problem, you're really an unbelievably relaxed guy with these sort of things. What I'm pointing out is the fact that we don't really know if 3 orders of, say, Red Dead Redemption will net you 3 x $10 credits.

Amazon will only do 1, so I'm thinking there's a good chance that it'll have to be first-come, first-served but I'm just hoping people realize that's a possibility. It would suck to order thinking you're taking advantage of the $10 credit just to find out you can't get because Goomba ordered the game for somebody else beforehand, and now are unexpectedly on the hook for the shipping + GFC fees, you know what I'm saying? I just think people planning to order certain games (and the ones with the credit bonuses are all fairly high profile), that they might not end up with the deal they're expecting. It's ridiculous but they don't seem to list the terms and conditions anywhere.

As far as restrictions towards USING the credit (ie non-stackable), I doubt there will be any problem and at that point it's not the customer's issue so much as yours, so you're free to do what you please.

My order's already placed and for all MY intents and purposes anyways, paid for, but I'll try and shoot CS an email to clarify the issue. I suggest a few people do the same. 2 more days of 25% off I believe, so form letters would be a huge waste of time, which I tend to always receive from gamestop (and are nearly always insultingly irrelevant), but I'll try anyways and post the reply...

Just keep in mind Gamestop still charges the tax on that $10 which would be included in the item cost.

On the flip side of that, some lucky customers afterwards SHOULD get a nice tax break :)

** Keep in mind that new orders are constantly coming in, so I am actually processing more than it would appear based on numbers alone ^_^ **

Currently Working: 4/28/2010 = (8PM-1AM EST).
Orders to Process: 78 TOTAL (68 DR's [All Pre-Paid Orders have been processed] & 10 Package Forwarding Orders).

I will update GYROS as I go along and will answer Emails when I have time. Thanks guys!

Oh and please remember if you pre-pay your item as soon as you request it your order will be processed right away. For time-sensitive orders either choose this method or the Package Forwarding method if you are able to do so. All other orders will be treated as "estimate inquiries" and will be processed when we have time to do so, in the order that we receive them. Thanks! Back to work now ^_^
