I have a huge problem and need help! I bought Wario Land Shake it on April 10 right after the last drop. To make things short this is what happened. My little sister opened up the game this past Monday and there was nothing inside the case. I went to Sears today to exchange the game, got denied and was told some BS about not being able to exchange or get a refund on open games.


They told me to call some 800 number and they were no help at all either. They told me to contact the manufacturer and have them deal with the problem. So the only thing I have left is to contact the store manager and see what he has to say about the situation.

Its only $15 but these people are complete ass hats.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!


That happened to me at SEARS about two years ago with a PS2 game. I didn't bother even trying to return it, though, as it was only $3 and I didn't open it until many months later (way beyond a reasonable return time).

I support Rozz 100%.

Same thing happened here with a copy of :ps3: Hot Shots Golf. Got home and noticed a small straight cut in the plastic. Sure enough, the game was gone. It was cheap enough not to worry about it, but still irksome.

Picked up the last Singstar Vol 2 Bundle at my local store for $4.97. Most all of the other drops mentioned above are active there too.

FYI - The entire bundle trades in for about $14 at GS right now with the current promotion.

I bought a PSP game last year in which the game was missing. Someone discretely sliced open the side of the shrinkwrap and pulled the UMD out. I didn't notice until I got home. I brought it back to Sears. At first they gave me a hard time and said the game had to be brought to security for investigation. But then I mentioned the game only cost $5 and it wasn't worth wasting time. Suddenly the cashier changed their tune. They let me pick any other game in the clearance section I wanted and would reduce the price to $5. So, I ended up getting a $15 game for $5.

Sskiizim, ask for the manager and complain. The store you purchased the game at should own up to this. You need to do this immediately as the return policy is almost up.

I bought Ninja Gaiden II out of a plastic security case a couple months ago and stupid me didn't realize until a week later that there was no shrinkwrap on it. I was just glad the disc was inside.

I wish I could get to a sears this weekend. Would love Muramasa and A Boy and His Blob for those prices. Hopefully I'll find some next weekend.

Also, I've really enjoyed Warioland Shake It and definitely think it's worth 10 bucks. It's not particularly difficult, but it is fun.

i don't know why i even try anymore, but i decided to check sears today to see if any of the good games being discussed here were on sale. and of course, everything had already been taken.

it's really no surprise. a few months ago, i talked to one of the employees and he said that the other employees always take the good stuff as soon as they mark it down and the rest gets bought up by some local hoarder who has bought 15+ games at a time in the past. i don't understand how that place stays in business.

Will stop by sears again after work. To see if Transformers is 9.97 its tagged on the hanging rack for 14.97. Pain to have to look for an employee to unlock and scan it.

Went to a distant Sears where I made a good score once in the past. They had the usual clearance bin but for some reason most of the stuff in it (besides the current $10/$13 games) was $2.97!

This is super YMMV and probably just the one store but here's my haul, each game only $2.97.
:360: Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
:360: Popcap Arcade Vol. 1
:wii: SpyBorgs
:wii: Boom Blox
:psp: LocoRoco 2
:ps2: Ratchet & Clank Size Matters
:ps2: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3
:ps2: Persona 3: FES (x2) shrinkwrap on both is torn though, grrr.

There was more but that's the best stuff. Knowing that in most Targets people buy the clearance games at $25 or higher, it just seems amazing that people left these games untouched.

But if you truly want the deal, you have to put up with the annoyance of trying to find someone to unlock the case and scan it.

I'd love to snag a :ps2: Persona 3: FES for ~$3, but the one copy I checked last month rang up $29.99 :cry:

I found some copies of :ds: Red Bull, but those rang up $9.97.:bomb:

And Dirt 2 360 was $12.97 as well.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

wow, was very happy with my resutls, 4 games for $28.88

Hawx (360) $12.97
Wet (PS3) $9.97
Viva Pinata (PH) $2.97
Viva Pinata TiP $2.97

both the Viva Pinata's were stickered $4.97, so I was very happy when they scanned in cheaper. Man, gotta stay on top of Sears more often. Most around my work and one near house never have clearance. the one I got to go today has a dedicated clearance area w/ all these titles mentioned and then some!

Spotted Lost Planet 2 at the one I checked at.(Rolling Acres Mall in Akron, OH)

That said, I didn't try to purchase it since it was in the case and I have no interest in it.

Went back and grabbed Wolfenstein for 9.97. Was a fan of the original, and a fan of Return to Castle Wolf on the PC, no reason to miss this one.

I lulz cause after I accepted a position in the electronics department, I went right over to the electronics section and had them pricecheck Wolfenstein (marked 49.99 still and like most employees they insist its marked right)... this employee should enjoy finding out next week im his coworker :)

Went to three different Sears today and found the following:

$9.97 Wolfenstein PS3 x4 ($20 to Dealtree)
$12.97 Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 PS3 x2 ($20 to Dealtree or Gazelle)
$1.97 Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds PS3 x2 ($20 to Dealtree!)
$0.97 Imagine Family Doctor x2 ($9 to Dealtree or Gazelle)
$2.97* Viva Pinata TiP 360 ($9.80 after bonuses at Gamestop)
$9.97 Wario Land Shake it Wii (actually keeping this one lol)

Total Spent $90.16
Getting $178 from Dealtree, $9.80 from Gamestop and keeping Wario Land. Not a bad day. Considering on going to a few more Sears farther out on Monday.

*This one seems to be YMMV. First store, no copies but my bar code scanned $2.97. Second store, one copy, scanned at $2.97. Third store, two copies, scanned at $19.99 :cry: (and yes, other clearance items were ringing up what they should have been aka $1.97 Hot Shots ect). Bar code numbers looked the same, only thing I noticed different was that the $2.97 copy had a Family Games sticker on it while the $19.99 copies did not.
