Hi Goomba,

Just wondering if my FFXIII and Bayonetta (both PS3) from Kmart came in yet?
Also wondering about the status of a couple of returns (FFXIII and GOW3 to EB), just want to make sure we don't pass the return date. Thanks. :)

Hi Goomba,

Just figured I'd check to see if you managed to have my items put together and sent out.

Thanks =)

Leshita, yes your games are in and I'll have them shipped out in the next day or two :) I will take care of the return copies, no worries. Thanks. I'm off to bed now (work in the morning) but I'll be doing a lot of shipping in the next couple of days especially once I shut down the GFC site. Thanks again :)

** IMPORTANT GFC REMINDER **

Today is the last day that I'll be leaving the Package Forwarding site up with shipping info so if you don't have it, go grab it now. The site will be almost completely down (with the exception of GYROS) from 06/03/2010 until 06/18/2010.... this will give us a lot of time to catch up on all of our inventory, website updates, shipping of existing orders and such. Thanks guys! This will make GFC a better service for everyone!

Hey Goomba,

Got my Steelseries headphones in today but I'm just wondering why the value was listed as $100 when I paid $50 for the entire 3-pack and, double-checking my order with you, I definitely indicated that as well. I got nailed for close to an extra $20 by customs because of it :(

Also, for my large gamestop mega order, I'm wondering why of all games, you're waiting on Lost Planet 2 to come in. If you recall, the games I ordered came out on 3 subsequent Tuesdays and Lost Planet 2 shipped with the first batch (the tracking number also confirms it arrived at your house on the exact same day as the other games in the first batch - Skate 3 and 3D Dot Game Heroes - on May 17th. To your home. Either that or you picked them up from the post office, as they tried to deliver all 3 games on the 14th but left a notice. Either way, you should have had this game well before some of my other stuff you've shipped out. It shipped from Gamestop on May 10 from Louisville, Kentucky, (zip code 40229) so if that can help you find it, seeing as it wasn't an issue to unbox the Mario Galaxy 2 games early, it would be hugely appreciated.

I also emailed you about a Blur "Token" that gamestop threw into the order afterwards for free and shipped separately from the game. The tracking indicates that it was delivered yesterday (June 1). I imagine it's quite a small package, though I don't really know exactly what it is, but it shipped from the same Gamestop facility on May 26 so if you can manage to find it as well and throw it into that last gamestop package pending for me, that would be awesome.

And even earlier than that, order #1236 / 1846839085 should have shipped out to your UPS box in two separate packages on May 6. The wallet should have arrived the next day (May 7) from SECAUCUS, NJ, and the coinpurse should have arrived on the 10th from SPRINGFIELD, OH, both from a company called Shoebuy in an order placed through Amazon. I'm wondering if you've seen any sign of these?

Sorry if I have too many questions, I just wasn't expecting that extra $20 charge and it often feels like some of the stuff you received earlier than certain items ends up getting shipped out much later lol

Oh and BTW... I also received the wins from your lowball auction on monday... thanks! The Transporter 3 case ended up getting cracked a bit in shipping I guess but it's no big deal, especially since I'm digging the Fringe case so much :)

Thank you.

And how dare you call the first one inferior it is not (IMO). It is my second favorite Mario game (well maybe third since my second favorite may be Super Mario Bros. 2 USA) in the series. It is the only Mario game I enjoyed in 3D.

I actually think that Super Mario Galaxy 2 is going to be worst. I know its getting 10's everywhere but I enjoyed the story in SMG1 and I wish that they didn't get rid of it.

(If my comment sounded rude it wasn't meant to be).

Im just basing my statement off of reviews. I havn't gotten far into SMG at all (since I have very little time to play games, and Im a music game whore since its the only game you can pick up for like 10 minutes and do something), but I just heard SMG2 has more interesting level design.

We'll see.

I have to agree, SMG1 was unbelievable. SMG2 MIGHT be a better game, but to call it inferior is still ridiculous. I'm the kind of guy that gets impatient with games and often doesn't even finish them. It's also rare that I play a single-player game more than once.

I not only "beat" SMG by defeating Bowser, I 100%ed it with Mario, and with then Luigi unlocked, IMMEDIATELY 100%ed the game again, obtaining the new bonus stars as well. If SMG2 is just as good or even better, it just means we have 2 incredible games, and calling either of them "inferior" is hugely misleading when both games occupy a top 3 spot on gamerankings.com :)

Well apparently Nintendo went ahead and improved upon their design from the original game. But you need to remember that when SMG1 was released it was an amazing game and won GoTY at many places. As much as I love Mass Effect 1 (it is one of my top 3 favorite Xbox 360 games) I would still to this name say my 2007 GoTY is SMG1.

I am still upset though that they killed off the story in SMG2 from what I hear and the hub. Why did they get rid of Roslina! The story was optional and I enjoyed when you could unlock more of the story. Now the world map apparently is lines.

Sorry for my rant but enjoy SMG1 because it truly is an amazing game.

In comparison to one another, one still is arguably inferior. Inferior in terms of being a worse game, but that doesn't imply that it is a bad game :-#

Posted 03 June 2010 - 02:29 AM

emjaymj, it was my understanding that you paid $50 for each one, so I thought marking it at $100 would be less than you paid in that case. Sorry for the misunderstanding there. Just so you know though, customs don't technically want to know what you paid for them, but rather the value of the item. They're not always the same thing as customs will typically (if they inspect them further) put the USA MSRP or Canadian prices of the items. I am sorry though that they they charged you extra. Again, I have no real control over customs but in the future I'll ship them seperately or something to avoid that happening again.

Despite what your tracking may say, I have not yet received Lost Planet 2, while I have received all of your other games. I've looked through all the ones they have delivered, so unless they just left it at the post office or didn't yet deliver to me (may be at my PO Box, though I'm not sure why they'd do that). I will check on that with them tomorrow, but so far that's the only game I haven't received.

I included your Blur Token paper with your copy of Blur in the package, so no worries there. It's just a little card (piece of cardboard) so it didn't add any extra weight. I have located the wallet but haven't yet seen the coinpurse. I will go through the newer packages from UPS and try to hunt it down. Also, your wine cooler things came in as well. I will have all these shipped out by Friday :) I'll do my best to consolidate them as best to avoid future customs charges.

As for when items ship out, it's not so much when I receive them...it's more the order they were ordered if that makes sense. I'm working on getting all items shipped out as soon as they come in (as we used to do) but the thing that has messed it up for me lately are the Package Forwarding orders. Since many people don't pre-pay the shipping/service charges it means I end up having to manually invoice them, which was the exact thing I wanted to avoid with PF orders. The new site will address this and hopefully put these issues to rest, so that we can just process on shipping and a lot less back-and-forth with invoicing :)

Glad you got the Lowball items. Sorry to hear about Transporter 3. I'm glad they made it to you though! Keep in touch and no worries about the long messages. We're shutting down GFC for the TSD for this reason, to catch up on all the loose odds and ends and get things back to normal =P Thanks again!

PuppetDoctor, all 9 copies I have of Super Mario Galaxy 2 are being packed tonight and shipped out first thing tomorrow morning. I will update GYROS and send out Emails. Also, I agree that SMG is far from "inferior"...it's one of my all-time favorite Mario games and favorite video games period. I have yet to play the second one, but I don't think it'll diminish my love of the first one, no matter how good it is...and MAN does it look good!

PuppetYuber, Gamestops $10.00 codes are applied directly to new games but they can't be combined with any other discounts (except MAYBE free shipping, but I'm not even sure of that). In all, Amazon's are the most useful and Gamestop's are fine but much more limited. Thanks!

It's one coupon per order, at least that's how it's been. I had a few people order 3-5 games in a single order and only received one code, so order at your own risk :)

And yes it's a one time use meaning only $10.00 off one game (as far as I know). Thanks!

Okay guys, I'm going to bed in just a few minutes. Keep this in mind: I will set up some links on the GFC site even when the service is in TSD (Total Shut Down) Mode. This will allow you to check GYROS updates, contact me via Email if you need to and such. The rest of the site will be down. If you have any questions feel free to ask, but if your question is "Has my package shipped yet" please just be patient as I will be doing nothing but shipping packages the next week. For this reason I ask you to hang in there unless you have a legitimate reason to inquire. Thanks so much again. I will get all the kinks worked out and we can make GFC the awesome service it was truly meant to be again :)

Goomba,

Lost Planet 2 shipped along with the other 2 games that were shipped out on week 1, and apparently arrived with the, It makes complete sense since they also had the same release dates, and the other batches for weeks 2 and 3 worked identically. If you really don't have the game, which should have arrived at your home about 2 weeks ago,, then unfortunately, something is really wrong.

I believe you have my gamestop.com account details but I'll send them again, along with the USPS tracking number (which is available through the GS order history but I'll in include it anyways) so that you may see for yourself and take whatever steps you think are necessary - all I know is that that it should definitely have been delivered.

Good to hear you've received the wine coolers though, and thank you for the info on how you process your orders. I always figured it'd be more streamlined to process o them in the order that you RECEIVE packages, rather than opening everything up and trying to figure out who placed their order first. In fact, because of this assumption I've often placed a PF order with you up to two weeks after placing the initial order with the vendor - though never waiting until AFTER it's been delivered - because I never thought it would have made a difference heh
