I got some pretty beat up games (from in-store) and I'm VERY surprised they work. I'm using a Wii though, not a Gamecube, don't know if that makes a difference. The 3 very rough ones worked, I still have to try the other 3 better looking ones.

Finally got my online orders in today, but of course only three (and half of RE0) of eight work, and of course they're the three I wanted the least. SSBM has chips in the top of the disc, and three others have that gunk in the spindle. Didn't somebody mention a way to remove that stuff a while back? I can't remember or find it now.

Also trying in-store transfers, but it's almost like pulling teeth. Apparently the first one never got shipped, and now I might be out a few games because of it. I don't even know about the others...probably going to have to call early when they open.

Has anybody had a situation where they called to confirm a store transfer happened, got told the games hadn't been sent out yet, then later found out that they not only had already gone out but they'd arrived at their GS?


which disc on zero i have a spare disc one im willing to trade. speaking of discs i need RE disc 1 for my bro

By any chance does anyone have any of Kirby Air Ride, Pokemon XD, and Geist to spare? Condition doesn't matter as long as it works.


A local Gamestop has a copy of Kirby Air Ride. I think it was about $3 or $4.

--
Managed to snag:
Wario World
NBA Street Vol. 3
Yu-Gi-Oh Falsebound Kingdom
Geist
Donkey Konga 2
Pacman Fever
Chibi Robo
Godzilla Destroy All Monsters
All for $16 at the only Gamestop with Gamecube games here. I was really hoping to snag some of the bigger games. What I would do for a copy of Smash Bros. Melee :(

Think we could work something out if you manage to snag it?

You can try a play-n-trade but Gamecube games are hit and miss if they've already been refurbished before. If they have any pinholes, label side damage, or inner crackage, I'd just declare them dead. If it looks like its just scratched from normal use then they typically can be saved

I dunno man, they don't really look damaged at all. They just don't play. The system can't read one, and the other errors a second in. I guess I can take them in have have they try it in the machine. If it even gets one working it's worth the effort. Otherwise they're just coasters.

They may tell u that they were doing the transfer, but most likely they forgot to do it. They say it and they have to find a box to put it in. The store manager said that to me on Monday, follow up today and another employee said they still have it and havent done it yet. Do they ship ups on weekends?

which disc on zero i have a spare disc one im willing to trade.


Disc 1 didn't work at all. Disc 2 booted up to the disc swap screen, but I couldn't go any farther since I don't have a Disc 2 save so I don't know if it'd keep going.

Besides, all I have to trade right now is a disc-only SSBM that's working despite that gunk in the spindle, and I'm not trading it for a missing disc that might end up useless anyway.

Had to return Custom Robo because the Gamecube and Wii couldn't read it. The disc have very little scratching and yet it wouldn't work. I guess I must have found a resurfaced disc or something.

I must be lucky, whenever I've gotten a resurfaced one for any system, it's worked. With the exception of a couple ps1 games a long time ago.

I just got my shipments of 11 games. All disk only, all look like crap. I tried cleaning the grey goo off the four I really wanted just to discover the center ring was cracked in all four. Think I'm officially done with gamestop.com, and these will be going back to the store.

I found 9 games and returned 8 of them back to the store because they were all crap and generic cases. I kept a disk only Legend of Zelda Orcana of Time & Master Quest. I should have picked up the harder to find titles a few years ago before the liquidation.

Looks like the re-stocks are done... I haven't seen anything good in days and only sports games are left. Man, I'm still kicking myself for not picking up more titles earlier, before this sale started...:-(

That's because they don't refund shipping for returns, even if it's their fault.

But, I'm wondering why you paid for shipping? Did you use or know about SAVER? It gives you free shipping on orders over $25 (before discounts, so something like Twilight Princess would work because it's standard price is $29.99, even though the 75% takes it down to 7.49) for in stock items.

I feel their "guaranteed to play" statement should refund the shipping. Why should I be charged for them to send me games that don't meet their guarantee? I paid shipping because when I ordered Double Dash and Melee "saver" didn't work, and I didn't want to waste time looking for filler and losing them... Since they were $24.99 each, it should have worked, but that's my luck...

I hope people realize that a large chunk of the gamecube games that gamestop.com has (and it was a larger chunk before some stores starting shipping their stock back) got shipped back because they didn't work and were to be resurfaced... which gamestop is TERRIBLE at.

Gamecube games are very delicate to resurface anyway, but the terrible methods that gamestop uses usually kill the discs even worse.

Oh, I wasn't trying to defend them (I agree they should give you the shipping back because it was their fault). I was just saying GS never gives back shipping.
