Wish I can give a list but I'm one of those people who didn't own a GameCube until the end of its lifecycle. I've been waiting for this coupon mainly for Pikmin 2, RE 2 and RE 3 and also Pokemon: Gale of Darkness and other Mario sports games. But unlike the deals where I was able to score via XBOX360, PSP, DS, PS2 and XBOX coupons... a lot of the games that I want to use with this coupon are over $25...But I guess with the Edge Card...now's the best time to get these games.

I actually did some Gamecube hunting months prior but here is what I was targeting and possibly maybe others might be interested as well:

(list)


Thanks for the list. Helped remind me of a few titles I need to round out my collection. :)

Original for both. Though it wouldn't have changed my mind about the purchase :)

I've had Pikmin 2 for a long time, bought it on clearance a long time ago and honestly I'm amazed at how much it's going for now. Wish I had bought more when it was cleared out :)

I ended up grabbing a Steel Batallion bundle from one store and a Marvel vs Capcom 2 from another. I traded Prey and Timeshift at the first store and ended up getting SB for 11.49. At the second store I traded Uncharted and Conan and got MVC plus $2 credit on the edge card. That Steel Batallion controller is sick! It took up the better part of my truck bed.:)

I hate you. I really really do. I can't catch a Steel Batallion bundle for anything.

Posted 27 June 2008 - 06:02 PM

Nice list, kndy, I'll have to print a copy and see which games I dont have yet.

Hit a GS at lunch, grabbed a couple games, nothing very notable. As usual around here, this deal was not in their system yet. It scanned, but all games rang up at full price so they had to manually put it in.

Also scored some penny guides I had been looking for (Lego SW!)

I have a bad feeling I might be using this coupon too much this weekend...

This is very true, the only reason these games and accessories are high priced is because of the demand for them. If there was no demand this stuff would all be dirt cheap!

Also posted in the $10 bonus thread, but traded EDF and Meet the Robinsons -- $6.99 each at Blockbuster. Got $21 after bonus + Edge. Picked up Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes with coupon for $20.99.

Not too shabby for less than $14 in BB credit (I really probably paid about $7 for that BB credit).

I went into GameStop today to trade in some 360 games to take advantage of the 10 dollar bonus offer, and they told me to hold the games til Monday 9/30, they'll be upping it up to 15 dollars extra instead of 10! Is this true, has anybody else heard about this?

It would suck if they were just messing with me or trying to screw me over somehow, lol.

That would make sense, if their regular NGC prices were in line with even ebay, which they generally aren't. Then if you look at goozex, you can often pick the games up even cheaper, even considering the coupon. There are some decent deals to be had, though. You just have to do some reasearch. Resident Evil 4 GC is a good price with coupon, for example.

Just got back from GS... Fortunately of the three stores, one of them carries a lot of the use GameCube games while the other still carries DVD's and the other carries more PC games...

Anyway, went there for only four games Resident Evil 2, 3, Pikmin 2 and Pokemon: Gale of Darkness....each were complete. The discount was great with all four + another game which came in at $91.

But then nostalgia factor came in where I wanted to buy re-games that I once owned before. (Damn, I'm never going to trade games in especially when I end up rebuying them again).

So, I ended of the four, I just ended up buying a complete Pikmin 2....damn that is expensive used:

$39.99 (with coupon and Edge) = $23.99

As for nostalgia, I ended up buying Ultimate Muscle for GC ($3.59), Gun Valkyrie ($2.99), Otogi ($2.99) and Otogi 2 ($7.79).

Part of my reason of not getting Resident Evil 2 and 3...was that I'm still deciding if I want the game since I own it on PSX. Reviews I read mention they are direct ports and unlike RE-Zero and the original RE remade for the GameCube...2 and 3 are just direct ports.

And for Pokemon: Gale of Darkness...I know it received good ratings but wasn't feeling it.

So, at least I got my priority GC game....Pikmin 2...but if anyone on here can give me a heads up if RE 2 and 3 are definitely worth it on GC... I'll probably hit the place tomorrow. Maybe...hehe...

Oh and last...I was thinking about Mario Power Tennis....Always wanted it...but it was like $34.99 or $39.99 or something...I can see why Ikaragua and Pikmin 2 are one of the most expensive games but does MPT really deserve to be that expensive...hmm...

That will be *if* you pre-order NCAA 09 and some have stated it'll be a coupon; I dunno. Although, the trade-in values of your stuff could go down by then, so who knows.

I think most of those prices are listed in post #21 on page 2, those prices are with coupon+edge.

Tales of Symphonia $17.99 = $10.79 after Coupon + Edge
Legend of Zelda: Four Swords $14.99 = $8.99 after Coupon + Edge (Not listed in his post, but it is a Zelda game.)
Legend of Zelda: Windwaker $17.99 = $10.79 after Coupon + Edge
Zelda Ocarina & Master Quest $29.99 = $17.99 after Coupon + Edge
Zelda Collector's Disc $34.99 = $20.99 after Coupon + Edge
Zelda: Twilight Princes $39.99 = $23.99 after Coupon + Edge
