Yeah, they are very reliable, but the games have to be in good condition (and complete if you want full TIV).

Although, they only pay for your shipping if you are trading in 10+ games worth over $100 total.

not to sure if mario party 8 is worth it .... any input from owners of it?


Your money is better spent on Mario Party 7, or even 6. I bought 8 on the first day it came out and have played it the least of the others. It just isn't "fun" really. They had some new board concepts that were interesting, but the controls are some mixture of wii style and Gamecube style and none of the games really stuck out. Here is the final word on it; everytime we finished a game of MP8 we were glad it was over, MP6 or 7 we wanted to get right back into it immediately.

I think you answered your own question. ;) For me it's gotten very tough to find one in very good condition.

What games does the "50% off select titles" refer to? Where's the coupon for that anyway?

And do you have to print these coupons out in a certain size or format?

No coupon for this, they are all in a bin in-store. There's a thread on this forum with a pretty complete list of titles.

And do you have to print these coupons out in a certain size or format?


Size, color or paper type doesn't matter. They don't even need to be able to scan the barcode; they just need to be able to read the promotion code.

Picked up brawl for a cool 35 bucks. Disk was dirty but not scratched. Not too bad. 15 bucks off new. And since nintendo games don't easily go down in price, good imo.

As it happens a week ago I was out of town and in Jacksonville from 3 copies of Pikmin 2 and 1 Pikmin...this coupon would have been nice, but I guess I should be thankful I found Pikmin 2 in the first place. I grabbed a copy of FFA2 and I'm not sure what else to keep and eye out for. Suggestions?

And do you have to print these coupons out in a certain size or format?

There's a thread for it already. The big ones are Rainbow Six Vegas (360) $7.xx (with edge), The Darkness (360) $7.xx (with edge), and Prey (360) $3.xx (with edge). Other than that, a bunch of old sports games and random PS2 games.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Struck out on RE4:Wii but one of my gamestop's had a amazing collection of GCN games (RE2/RE:CV/LOZ:WW) and I have some games for the GCN I need to pick up to finish my collection.

Later next week I'm going to check a few more gamestops and figure out what I want to get but I was shocked at the good amount of GCN stuff at one of my stops.

If you have the receipt and it is within 7 days of purchase, take that Pikmin 2 back and do a return/rebuy. That's what I did with the Dr. Mario GBA game I listed above.
