If you have to type that, then it's probably too late.

Not really. I had to type that because some take offense easily to a differing opinion and run to hit the report post button before doing anything else.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Sarcasm-Just one of the many services I offer.

Looks like Fallout: NV is still $17.99 used. Going to hopefully stop by one today and pick up a copy.


I would say its a permanent drop since the inevitable Game of the Year with all the DLC version should be coming out by fall.

DJ Hero 2 Turntable Bundle is now $25.99 for the PS3 version and $24.99 for the 360 version. I'm glad I passed during the initial sale. Not much savings, but still.

I doubt we'll see a GOTY edition that quickly, if at all. There's only been one DLC since the release in October 2010, and the next DLC doesn't appear to have a firm release date yet, and rumor was there were eight planned.

That being said, $20 for the core game is a steal. I did enjoy the core game and finished it after tons and tons of hours, but I honestly don't see this being GOTY compilation material, unlike Fallout 3.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

So B2G2 is over for realz?

Sad to see it go, although I think I picked up most of what I wanted and remembered how much buying used from GameStop SUCKS. I believe I will stick to eBay and Amazon sellers from now on.

And it was no fun scrubbing those price tags off of game cases and GBA cartridges.

B2G2 was an exciting thought but it wasn't that good because most stores "threw" away the cases and instructions. (now you see them on ebay). I don't really understand why they did it - the cases didn't take up that much space and now they have the disc only games in small bins at the counter that almost no one knows about or browses through. They should've ran the sale before getting rid of them.

Question: I saw Zelda Wind and zelda Master Quest for GC. If I buy it, can I return it to another gamestop with no problems? I was thinking about paying in Cash. (Do they ask for info.,etc)
The cases are in near mint.

If you bought it from their website or their stores, you can return it to any one of their stores.

Saw the Power Saver Sale bin still up, and marked "Last Chance Clearance" with stuff $2 cheaper, all gutted. Saw Majin for $12.99, but I already own it. And lots of other stuff like Def Jam, X-men, shovelware.

Of my last order, bought four games, three are broken:

Yoshi's Island GBA: Pirate/Fake cart
Pokemon Sapphire: Battery dead, doesn't save, freezes on save screen
Zelda: A Link to the Past: All save slots corrupted, can't create files so can't play.

Thanks, Gamestop.

Lol at wargod


Yes clearly the shelves will be 'fool' in a week.


Of the stuff I ordered online, my local Gamestops had everything I needed in store with the exception of 2 games, which I simply swapped out for two different games of equal value. It was a hassle free process. And to think you doubted my god-like CAG skills, LOL!

Wave Race: Blue Storm - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Metroid Prime - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal - Came Complete
Final Fantasy X-2 - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Final Fantasy XII - Came INC, swapped for COMP
God of War - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Jak 3 - Came Complete
Pikmin - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus - Came Complete
God of War II - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Killzone - Came Complete
Star Fox: Assault - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Disgaea: Came Complete
Final Fantasy X Came Complete
Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Zone of Enders 2: Still waiting to receive
Paper Mario: The Thousand - Came INC, still no instructions
Sonic Adventure 2: Battle - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Super Mario Sunshine - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Super Smash Brothers Melee Came Complete
The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords - Came INC, swapped for other game
Shadow of the Colossus - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Silent Hill 2 - Came INC, swapped for other game
Legend of Zelda - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Zone of the Enders 2 - Not yet shipped
Mario Party 4 - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Mario Party 6 - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Kirbys Air Ride - Came INC, swapped for COMP
Mega Man X Collection - Came Complete

I made another legendary in store haul on the 24th for 12 more games as I waited for the games above to arrive. Gamestop shipping was exceptionally fast. Order was placed on Thursday and the entire order arrived on Monday with the exception of one game. As you can see, Gamestop online sucks for shipping complete games. It's a bet for sure, but one that I had no concerns about making as my local Gamestops don't sell many Gamecube/PS2 games, sale or not.

They just let me swap the boxes and instructions. No credit cards scanned or return/rebuy needed. You just need to have your packing list for proof of purchase. You only have 7 days from the time the product is received to do the swaps.

so i should just tell them that i bought them and received them this week and ask if i could swap the cases and get the manuals? also, for in store purchases, i could do the same?

No need to tell them when you bought them, the date is on the packing slip. For in store purchased they have to be done at the store you bought them from. Online purchases can be done at any store. One store gave me a Metal Gear Substance 3 disk instead of Substance 2. Went to a different Gamestop today to get the correct game and they said I had to go to the store I purchased the game from as it would screw up their inventory. A complete disrespect of my time in favor of their bullshit policy. As if an online return wouldn't screw up their inventory as well, LOL. I guess Gamestop corporate is willing to put stupid policies in place which will result in pissing off customers for a loss of sales. After spending over $300 in two days at Gamestop, I won't be pre-ordering anything from them for awhile. Amazon will get my business. Also they charged my card 3 times for 2 orders that were the same amount, one of which was canceled so I'm still having them sort that out through emails.

so the copy of GTA San Andreas that i exchanged last Saturday was also defective. Went to Gamestop earlier today, and they didn't have any other copies so I got $17.32 refunded back even though I purchased it as part of the buy 2 get 2 deal. FYI.. the Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 games i got worked just fine.
