It was already risky at 75% .. Now being full price it will cost you even more if they don't play. You'll be out of shipping , tax, and maybe even return shipping.

Well Fuck me, Star Fox Assault is still in the mail at full price. Think I can get a price match or something?

EDIT: Fuck! Mario Party 7 OOS'd when I was checking out.

I ordered a bunch of mario karts after reading the stories here. yep, all broken. The discs look nice on the bottom, but they don't read. some have circle scratches on top.

why are they even selling these

I don't know. I bought 6 on 6 different days and none of them work. I'm returning a couple more to gs tonight hopefully. I noticed the amazon tiv went from $13 to $5. Hmm I wonder why?

I think a lot of GS employees are getting the message... I went to return a used copy of Shadow Hearts From the New World (PS2 game, but I bought online) that was clearly refurbished but had a crack in it. As soon as heard I wanted to "return a defective game I bought online", he shook his head and said "fucking Gamestop refurb center" out loud.:lol: He didn't even bother opening the case to check...

He then pulled out shoebox-sized bin full of destroyed discs, all of which were GC games as far as I could tell, that were returned to all GSes in the area and get collected but this store. Apparently, they don't know what to do with them. They started to throw them out but dumpster divers were taking the games and trading them into the local mom & pop store in the same strip mall. The mom & pop store only checks the physical condition of the disc as they don't have time to test them all. Needless to say, they complained to GS since they were losing a ton of money on these games.

Not even sure if anyone would want to bite on it (I learned my lesson after the single game I bought didn't work), but Gamestop just put up at least 10 copies each of Double Dash and SSBM.

I think I'm actually doing a disservice by posting this, but someone could get lucky and get one that actually works. Or the off chance you get an official Gamecube case that you can swap in a generic one with (which came with the TP I ordered) before returning it.

if I was a betting man I'd say these are all but certainly broken returns.

the only nearby store still selling gamecube games gutted the games, most of which where worth less than the value of the case alone so they are now pretty much worthless

I found Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, and Time splitters Future Perfect at a local Gamestop. I had no idea Time splitters was worth so much. Thought it was like a $10 game. Great series :)

They don't seem to be discounted as far as I can tell?

It takes 75% off when you add them to your cart.

Got all excited over a couple things... then realized there were only about 12 games that were actually available and not a thing worthwhile.
