I noticed a lot of games are still ripoffs even with the discount. Mario Tennis for $35, Zelda discs for $35 .. sheesh. Even with the discount, you can find these games both cheaper, and in a lot better condition if you wanted to. I kind of laughed when I saw the yellow players choice tag on games, so that means they retailed new for $20, and then saw the price and it was $25.

I got Rocky ($5 original price) and Prince of Persia ($10) for Gamecube for $10.48. I was going to get Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2 for $5.00 apeice before discount, but when I took the cases up there they said they didn't have it. Really lame. I can see why I rarely ever go up here, even though its right down the street from me.

Didn't have a coupon with me, but I picked up Mega Man Anniversary Collection for GC for $7.99. I had looked that up online, and went in there specifically for it, but s I was there I also noticed a great condition copy of Metal Arms, and as I've been looking in GS' for YEARS for a good copy of that, I couldn't pass on it at only $3.99.

I just got back from my final run. This has been a truly iepic coupon for me. Here's what I picked up during the course of the week, broken up by store (All GameCube):

Resident Evil: $19.99 -> $11.99
Resident Evil 2: $29.99 -> $17.99
Resident Evil 3: $29.99 -> $17.99
Geist: $6.99 -> $4.19
Luigi's Mansion: $9.99 -> $5.99

Lego Star Wars: $19.99 -> $11.99
Lego Star Wars II: $24.99 -> $14.99
Mega Man Anniversary Collection: $7.99 -> $4.79
Resident Evil Zero: $12.99 -> $7.79
Spartan: Total Warrior: $14.99 -> $8.99

Mario Golf: $14.99 -> $8.99
Summoner: $4.99 -> $2.99
The Simpsons: Hit & Run: $19.99 -> $11.99
Battalion Wars: $8.99 -> $5.39

Star Fox Adventures: $9.99 -> $5.99
Cubivore: $24.99 -> $14.99
Mario Power Tennis: $34.99 -> $20.99

Gladius: $12.99 -> $7.79
Mystic Heroes: $7.99 -> $4.79
Wario World: $9.99 -> $5.99

Ikaruga: $39.99 -> $23.99
Chibi-Robo: $12.99 -> $7.79

Total Games: 22 (nearly doubling my collection!)
Total Price: $228.38 (only $5.67 credit left)
Average Price: $10.38 per game

All of those were complete and non-GH, except for Cubivore, which is disc-only. Unfortunately, the store that had a complete copy of Cubivore two weeks ago didn't have it by the time I got there, so I had to settle for disc-only. I would have liked to pick up Mega Man X Collection and Viewtiful Joe 2, but non of the stores I went to had them in stock, even if they had said so on their website. Oh well. It's just too bad I wasn't in NYC (where I live) until Sunday night, and I started working full time on Monday. It seriously cut into the number of GameStops I could hit up.

Guess I'll use this to get Chaos Field.

I've seen it sitting there for a long time and almost always get it, but don't. Might as well get it while the coupon is alive.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

See if you can get the case and manual from videogameinstructionbooklets.com

My fiance was nice enough to steal my edge card and my last coupon to suprise me with some gamecube games seeing I got a cube but have working hard to find some decent priced good games to play and she got me

Harvest Moon:Magical Melody
Baten Kaitos

Which is cool because for some reason those 2 games were at only one store within 100 miles of me and it happen to be next to a store she was going to...

Well got to love Gamestop and they gave here a disc only copy of Harvest Moon and a complete yet crushed case Baten Kaitos.. So I went on the site I listed above and was able to get the case,insert and manual for HM along with a case and insert for BK for under $12.00 which is fair to me and someone like me that has to have complete games and cases that dont look like someone sat on and took a dump...

No Cubivore products :cry: It is an old Atlus game, so I'm not surprised. Maybe I'll spot it on ebay one day, or maybe at another Gamestop and they'll be kind enough to let me swap cases. Thanks for the site though.

Used this coupon a lot, I got:

Mario Party 4
Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg
Donkey Kong Jungle Beat
Star Wars Rogue Leader
Luigi's Mansion
Mario Gold
PN 03

The stand out deals are Mario Golf for 9 bucks, PN 03 for 3 bucks and Billy Hatcher for 3 bucks. Mario Party 4 is still a rip-off at 20 bucks but I loves me some Mario Party. I've played Mario Golf for 7 hours today, I am addicted.

Pretty happy with the games that I got.

Panzer Dragoon Orta (Xbox)
Legend of Zelda Windwaker (GCN)
Viewtiful Joe (GCN)
Star Fox Assault (GCN)
Killer 7 (GCN)
Chaos Field (GCN)
Tales of Symphonia (GCN)

I've been playing Tales non-stop, it's a pretty good game and definitely happy with that purchase. I'm excited to pickup the sequel on the Wii and Tales of Vesperia on 360 later this year.

So, I just got around to checking out the games I picked up today (Ikaruga and Chibi Robo). I open up the Chibi Robo case, flip through the manual, and a game disc falls out! So now I have two working copies of this game for the price of one! I'm surprised no one caught this, especially since this disc was sitting in the manual out of the floor for who knows how long.

Would you be willing to sell the disc? My girlfriend has really been wanting to play the game and I've been kicking myself for not picking it up when I saw it at K-mart.

Picked up Metal Arms today too! Also SSX Tricky, F-Zero GX, and One Piece Grand Adventure.

Yeah it was a great coupon. I was able to pickup some old favorites (all the more reason to be more particular about selling/trading things).

I hit up a couple stores and found...

NCG
Ikaruga
Viewtiful Joe 1&2
Sonic Gems Collection
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
Fire Emblem: Path Of Radiance
Resident Evil 2
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
Pikmin :hot:

XBOX
Star Wars KOTOR 1 & 2
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 :hot:

Although the new coupon isn't too shabby with your EDGE card. Maybe it's time to pickup the complete LEGO Star Wars...

You can do that, but the S&H costs are pretty brutal. Case and manual for MGS3: Subsistence and MGS: Portable Ops only cost me ~$6, but then I'm hit with a $12 S&H cost.

Have you played The Bard's Tale? Not sure if you can adjust the camera, it's been awhile, but I can only remember the camera being way to close to the action and it made me sick. For $3 though you didn't go wrong.
