Hoping my "Shadows" is sitting on the table when I get home. I might have to break from Arkham City to play that for a couple hours tonight...

I saw that and its unfortunate but 20$ is still a damn good price for it. Im assuming its permanent then.

I never really payed attention to gamefly but if they have such great used prices for big games that arent even 1 year old, im certain to pay attention more often!

to anyone complaining about shipping, if you order 2+ it gets to you much faster than if you just order 1.

Unfortunately, no! I had emailed them about providing the Papal payment option when I was going to purchase things from them in the beginning.

Gamefly keeps your credit card information, and you can't delete it.

I told them that with all the identity thefts at major corporations and fortune 500 companies, I didn't want to leave my credit card information on any website anymore. But they just replied that it was their policy.


Gamefly refunds 100% pretty much no questions asked. I've ordered about 50 games from Gamefly and all have been fine. I'm sure there's some problems, but the simple fact is they refund. This is not a company that should be receiving a dose of 'net hate.

After reading some of the posts, I went back and found that my copy of No More Heroes and Shadow of the Damned for the PS3 also have chips on the outer edge of the discs. However, I've also looked through all the GameFly games I've bought, and they all seem to have had them yet I've never noticed them interfering with the game. As far as I can tell, as long as they don't touch the silver substrate, they will not affect reading operations.

Really wish I could afford 3 games right now (Shadows of the Damned, No More Heroes 2, & Motorstorm) but could only afford 1 and that was Motorstorm. Been waiting to get this game for a long time now. How is the online community for it? Motorstorm: Pacific Rift pissed me off cause either there was no online community when I was lttp last year or the game sucked for not connecting any lobbies. Do hope that SotD and NMH2 will be on sale again next time. My body is ready!

How I felt, never noticed, because really if it is so minor and games play perfectly I am not bothered. Can not speak highly enough about GameFly, best company to buy used games from by far.

Are the cases and manuals usually in good condition? Strangely enough, I'm more concerned about that than the disc, lol. I picked up Metroid Other M and Lego Star Wars III. Both for $27 after tax, I think that's a decent deal.

Yeah, they're untouched as gamefly just sends the discs out to its users.

I've read a few times that ordering more than one game at a time gets you faster shipping... I ordered 6 games from them this month, all single disc orders, and they all got to me within 2-3 days. So I'm not sure the quantity in your order necessarily matters.

Absolutely it does. I ordered 5 games from them, one at a time, when these nightly deals started. They all took between 7-15 days to get to me, and I'm near the Pittsburgh's warehouse. I haven't been lucky enough to find 2 games I'm interested in per sale, but I do believe others when they tell me that buying 2 or more will upgrade your order to Priority shipping, which gets to you in 2-3 days, and not 7-15 days.

I bought two on the 13th and my games have yet to arrive...I think they split the orders though. Not sure when to expect them as the tracking numbers don't appear to work.

Contracted Gamefly about my RDR Undead Nightmare and they said it got lost in the mail and refunded me and won't let me get another copy.

Fuck these guys.


They don't do replacements, but you can work around it. What did you say to them?

I had a cracked copy of Dead Rising 2, which I paid $10 for. I emailed them, told them I'd be happy to do the return, but didn't want to lose out on the price, which had since risen to $15 + $3 shipping.

In the reply, they gave me a voucher for $8, which covered the cost of my re-order.

just throwing my support in for gamefly quality. as far as used games go, they are the best i've found. i've probably bought 40 games from them, and only had a problem with one. i emailed them, they sent me a prepaid shipping label, and refunded my credit card when they received it.

i absolutely recommend gamefly.

after debating it all week finally bit the bullet on :360: Portal 2 and :ps3: Gran Turismo 5.

Anyone know a sure-fire way to exploit this? Should I simply make more Kongregate accounts using different emails to get more codes or should I delete and re-download the app as well?

As far as I can tell, as long as they don't touch the silver substrate, they will not affect reading operations.

Just a warning those chips put so much stress on the drive reading them and man does it ever. It is science just think about it. The drive is spinning and all those chips make the disc more unstable and the air goes into those chips which slows it down and makes it work so much harder. It is like doing a custom car as a box shape driving down the street. Yes it drives fine but it takes more power for the engine to go and it puts a lot of stress on the engine. I rather have my 360 not RROD even the newer models can do this or the drives fail. This is one way to make the % of it happening to you.

But some people will say it is not true and i bet those same people buy extension cords galore and plug in like 20 things into 1 outlet and thinks that is perfectly fine. Common sense is a wonderful tool.

Also a warning for people thinking about taking the chance and if they do get chipped discs gamefly bans you from buying/renting if you return a few no matter how many you buy. They blame the chips happening at your local post office and will not ship anymore to you. If you do not believe me you can contact them and ask how this stuff works. It is simple to return items but you send in say betweeen 2-5 they flag your account and good chance it goes bye bye. I suggest googling to about it.

These deals are amazing but just think is it worth paying 1-2 bones somewhere else and get them fine or save 1-2 bones and take the chance they got chips or not working or whatever other issues arises. I bought duke nukem for $10 i regret it cause i bet it comes chipped like the last few i got did. I ended up giving them away and bought them somewhere else. I love the ones that sound so bad like a jet plane taking off. Those rule!

I still like to know how they get all those outer edge chips!
