Word of Warning:

I recently purchased:

:wii: Mario Power Tennis
:360: NCAA Basketball 09
:360: Dark Sector

during the Gamefly under $10 sale last week.

All the games came with mint boxes/manuals... but the disc quality is terrible. Smudges all over the label side and scratches all over the underside. Mario Power Tennis was scratched the worst - with visible chips of plastic missing - all along the outside - but it still works. Prior to my purchase, I had read that Gamefly used games where "near pristine" but that was hardly my experience.

Edit: When you think about it, how on earth could games that have been through so many mailings/handlers be near pristine? I'm sure these games are some of the "most played" used games you can buy.

Caveat emptor


I am sure it also matters on whether or not you are buying PS3 or 360 games. I have bought several PS3 games and all are mint. Blue Ray helps I am sure, but I bet it also has to do with the fact that there are more people playing 360 games.

I'd rather get RE5 on PS3, so I can do co-op with my buddies.

Is there any news on a UFC 2010? Does anyone know if it's coming out soon? I'd bite on $20 UFC 2009, but if the next game's coming out in like 4 months or so, why bother?

I recently got two purchased discs with chips on the underside (the playable side), I believe. GameFly does a pretty good job with the cardboard protection that they provided for rented discs (at least IMHO during my somewhat brief one-month free trial courtesy of ECA). But the AFSM100's (automated flat sorting machines) that the Post Office uses (that GameFly instructs them to sort/ship their discs with) can definitely do some damage (even with the protection that GameFly provides for the discs). And, no, I never worked directly for the Post Office, but I have worked in one of their P&DC's (Processing and Distribution Centers) for a subcontractor who was actually installing the AFSM100's.

GameFly allows you to create a partial account that basically gives them your shipping info, email and credit card. You do NOT need to be a rental member to purchase games from them. If you are a rental member you get rewards monthly as well as an additional percent off depending on how long you have been a member.

The free shipping for non-rental members is only on select titles during select sales.

Ordered Wanted. Was contemplating Godfather, but goddamn hated the first one. Hopefully PS3 owners get some love tomorrow for deals because I am spending too much on myself this holiday season.

Because you won't get UFC 2010 when it comes out? Unless you mean you're expecting a Madden like drop in the price of used versions when the new one comes out.

Arg thought $20 was pretty good on RE5 at Amazon, missed it on BF and then got it on Monday... and now it's $6 cheaper, and the Amazon order shipped. Oh well, can't win em all.
Also why is it that when i click the "Diablo" picture, i get sent to pc games without the Diablo and even when i searched for Diablo, i get no results.
Oh boy...You said there was going to be Diablo op. Where is my Diablo? I dont see Diablo. You promised me Diablo.

i couldnt resist. RE5 for $13.78 (stupid tax) is still a sick deal. i didnt really enjoy the demo but i loved RE4 so im willing to give this game a shot instead of leaving my judgement from a 5 min demo

How is Godfather 2? Is it worth it?

Been waiting on a good deal on Wanted :D


Godfather 2 was a blast! Definitely worth $10, if not $40 or $50. Think of it as Saints Row based in the 1960's. A lot of cool missions and a great economic system at work. I had a blast from start to finish.

I actually really enjoyed RE5...haha, considering I 1000/1000'ed it too!! It's a great action shooter with some nice cinematics thrown in! Plus an easy 1000 gamerpoints...deserves an honorable mention for GOTY, not a winner of course, but it's up there

after hearing you say this, i decided to research Godfather 2 a bit more to see if I wanted to buy this too, but damn...it got horrible reviews. a 5.5 from Gameinformer?! that's even lower than Bourne Consp. <-- i loved that game though :)

I'm on the fence about GFII also. It seems like a lot of reviewers panned it. I did however find a piece on Kotaku about it that says that it does a really goo job of creating a living world that reacts to you, and that has me intrigued. Of course, all the praise of that one element is tempered by dull graphics, AI glitches, etc., so I just don't know if it's worth the $10. On the one hand that seems really cheap, but on the other if I'm never going to get around to playing it or get too frustrated by it, maybe it isn't money well spent.

This is exactly my thoughts. I had a blast with Godfather 2. It isn't going to win any GOTY awards but that doesn't change that it is mindless fun and a great buy at $10.

In for Wanted and Godfather 2. Been waiting for Wanted to hit this price. I thought the first Godfather game was pretty good but stayed away from 2 after the reviews. For $10 it's worth a shot though.
