Thanks. I really like that feature and I'm glad to see that TZ is using it.

Also, TZ, put me down as someone who would gladly put a VG5 banner in my sig when you're able to make that option available.

Something I'm working on but don't want to put out there until they look great. Have some art assets being worked on, but sigs are coming! :)

While we're at it, make sure you get five trades started every week. You'll be entered to win any game of your choice.

Thanks for the points and the promotion TZ, the site keeps on improving by the day.

I love how you are rewarding current users and incentivizing people to join. I mean even if you had just signed up before you could have got a couple of free games already.

Plus the raffle promotion that gives anyone that trades a chance to win a brand new game is awesome.

While I haven't ruled them out, there aren't any plans to. I'm focusing on games for now so that we can be the best site for that.

Wow, VGFive. I wake up this morning to see 200 points added to my account AND I have a game requested. Then I find out I'm first in line for Lego Star Wars III.

VGFive is making 2013 a good year for me.

Well, I just signed up and I'm not quite sure why I hadn't done that yet. I've been kind of active at Goozex over the years (108 trades sent, currently have 9 active), and while I don't see myself giving up over there just yet (3650 points have something to do with it), VGFive looks like it could be a bit more rewarding down the road. Time to get my feet wet I guess...

So far for me it's better than goozex ever was (been trading there for over 5 years and over 1100 trades).

With VGFive I can't hold onto points long enough before being matched with another available game. Which causes me to send out more games to get more points. It's an endless cycle :D.

^ yeap. I ran out if tokens and thought to myself. That's good now I can stock pile points. I saved up to 1200. I said ok ill go ahead and buy tokens and see what happens. I refreshed the page and it shows my points. Then it shows 0 points. Two trades accepted in a matter of seconds. Now I'm out of points again lol.

Hey tz. Can you add or is there a way to search for games based on points. Say I only have 100 tokens can I search for all games at this price?

I traded on Goozex or years, and cashed out last summer when the ship was starting to sink. The management made some huge mistakes in managing the trading system. I've been waiting for something else to come along to make trading easy again.

I signed up for VGFive a few weeks ago, and I really like what I'm seeing so far. This is what Goozex used to be...perhaps even better. I've already sent out 4 games, and received one (although, I'm only requesting a few right now due to a large backlog from Christmas). A lot of the games I have requested but on hold are available. I'm just not ready for them yet. I'm not a huge fan of the interface, but I realize that is a work in progress.

Tainted, thank you for all of the hard work you have put in making this happen.

The Available Games page has a filter option in the search area that limits the results by price. The "all games" area doesn't have that yet (work in progress).

I've just been matched for an item and timed out twice (with the 24 hour timeout in between)... I'm assuming it's the same seller because there's only one copy listed.

Is there anything to stop this or will this cycle continue until the seller de-lists it?

Two of us on VGFive are offering Bulletstorm yet there are 7 people who have their request for it on hold. It's bugging me for two reasons:

1. The points I get from this game will entitle me to get a PS3 game that I am first in line for. My first game from VGFive.

2. Bulletstorm was just traded on Goozex.

Trades are increasing, the site is growing, and more and more games are becoming available. A lot of people who have doubts about VGFive are really missing out on some good opportunities.

Just sent out my first game yesterday too bad I only got half the credits it was when I put the game up. I'm first in line for a couple n64 games but doesn't seem like people are really trading those for the time being

Possibly down the road. The one problem I see with this is that there's a history of people selling generated or otherwise stolen codes on sites like eBay and such. Wouldn't want people to be able to essentially launder these codes into games, but trading real codes is something I'd like to implement.
