no  now you get to join another site  (probally made by the same people who owned  goozex and vg)  and do it all over again and in the end you will get   .....   up the ass once again

At this point I'm pretty skeptical to immediately jump into another site.  99 Gamers seems like it's been doing OK for a while now but I'm not sure who to go with.  I lost about 2500 points and 3 tokens at Goozex but considering how much I got over the years and how little it cost me to get those 2500 points I consider my Goozex losses to be quite minimal.  I feel like I got screwed more at VGFive since I sent out a few games right at the beginning and ended up getting 2 less games than what I sent out.

I'm in a similar boat when it comes to Goozex. Before the shutdown, I was set to win Metal Gear Rising or Halo 4 from the Exchange thus wiping out my balance. VGFive left me 250 points. As of this post, I have a trade pending (last night I got a message asking if I wanted an extention towards the seller). I got some games I liked but Goozex gave me so much more.

 

 

99Gamers .... Leaptrade .... not sure which to go with. In the meantime, I am talking with some other CAGs in starting up a lowball to lessen the blow.

I'm almost completely done with game trading websites, but Leaptrade got me to send out at least 4 trades because of their awesome promo.

 

If you guys are on the fence I'd at least take advantage of the 4 (shipping labels) for $0.40 promo.  At least list some of your "crap" and see if anyone bites. 

 

I essentially traded in 4 crappy games (practically worthless on amazon, ebay) for $1.60 in shipping labels and got enough credit for a pretty decent game that I'll be able to flip elsewhere after I'm done playing it. 

 

Plus you guys get $5 for signing up and another $5 after your first trade so it does add up if you're looking for a quick flip. Shameless plug if you guys end up signing up(gets me $5 for a referral):  http://www.leaptrade...eferrer:antlp89

 

 

Because of how smooth things went I'm listing more stuff but as always I'm gonna keep a low balance.

I can assure you that I'm not involved with any of the other trading sites, nor do I have any plans to be after everything that happened last year. I don't believe that the Goozex folks (both original and current owners) are involved in any of the sites that are still operational.

now that they are belly up you  should contact them and say you want to buy  back  VG for  1 penny :)

Does anyone know how we go about showing Leaptrade our Goozex credit when we no longer have access to anything Goozex?

I'm going to assume they take your word for it as long as you never previously signed up for leaptrade and mention that you heard about the promotion because of goozex going down.

I have seen you badmouth this new site in a couple threads here, but I also notice you're already very active there on the forums.  Seems a bit hypocritical.

I was wondering how you show Leaptrade you're a member of Goozex/VGFive as well. 

 

Funny how the sites are down, yet these Goozex signatures are working.

Only made like 3 or 4 post over there would not call that  VERY ACTIVE.  Mostly its  due to the fact people are like  OOO  Look at this site over here its the best around  and  then  want to  bitch when they go belly up.    Just    saying   DONT  RISK MORE THEN YOU CAN  WILLING TO LOSE 

 

Hell goozex well belly up and yea im pissed too i had  11k points over there  ROTTING  though i probally could of got 2 or 3 more games  mostly i given up on goozex long ago

 

Then VG  goes belly up  lost  3200 points there but had  22 in and 20 out range and got better in then sent out.

 

Leap I got  4 out and  0  in  (1 pending mario tennis for the 3ds)   and was saying im not going to be sending more out till i  even out cause who knows how long this site is going to last .

 

there was another site cant remember the name. i know they pissed off alot of people when they went out they had  a banner with fireworks  saying   WE ARE CLOSING OUR SITE   they were like why the Fuck you shooting off fire works to promote your belly up.  (THOUGH that site was doomed from day  1  (was set your own price  with  very  weak leadership   meaning   if you found a sucker to pay 40 coins for one game and  people dumped their games for 5 to 8  you could do   very easy a   6 or 8 to 1 flipped what many did

^ I love how that link ends with "errer:slidecage" :)

 

You are the epitome of errorer. (if that were a real word)

 

So is there a Leaptrade thread or should we just hang out in here for old time's sake?  It's so strange-feeling at Leaptrade.  I have $45 in credit and don't know what to get; not because there's nothing but sports games and demo discs a la Goozex, but because there's so much available that I'm not sure what to go with first...I'm thinking Spec Ops: The Line, I liked Homefront (ie:single-player campaign shooter).

 

I was going to go with Burnout Paradise, but I just ordered NFS:Rivals today.  That should fill my yearly racing quota.

I decided to join Leaptrade using murg75's referral link and 99Gamers using Solato's referral link. Some comments on each site:

 

Goozex: If the site comes up, I'll continue with them. I still have points to use and feedback to post so I'd like to get the chance to use it . I'm not going to call them "the devil" or anything since they've given me so many games in the past. I'm staying subscribed to this thread for any news about the company.

 

 

Leaptrade: Kerig's right. There is a lot to choose from even though they don't have retro games like NES, SNES, Genesis, and PS1 available to name a few consoles. I like the look of the site, but there is a lot to go through with the forums, messaging, and profiles that it's kind of intimidating. Haven't tried trading yet until I'm more comfortable with the features.

 

99Gamers: Every system has games available to buy/sell. I like how while you are searching for a game, it tells you if the game is available right now (think live time results like Google search).  The layout has a "go big or go home" vibe that I don't like. For example, if you want to see which PS3 games are available, you're given giant images of the cover art and you have to scroll down to see more results so it's loading forever. There are no small thumbnail images like Goozex or Leaptrade has, or even a "simple text" listing.  I would be willing to trade if no other site has a requested game available.

 

Regardless of what happens, I plan on having 2,000 points or $20 max credit for each site.

Could have used my referral link!

Friend me so we can try the friend to friend trading. Same name on LeapTrade. I also agree with keeping the points/coins banked at a reasonable amount.

I'm also at Leaptrade as of now since goozex/vgfive went down. I haven't traded anything at Leaptrade but I may throw in a few games sometime in the future. The site looks okay but it's still not as established as 99gamers. No retro games for trade or anything. Mostly curent gen games.

 

If anybody is interested in joining I do have a referral link for Leaptrade.

The thread title makes me snicker every time I see it.  They're not hiring anymore, the position has just been filled:

And now the Goozex signatures don't work.

 

Now that Leaptrade has NES, SNES, and the entire Playstation library to choose from, I am just about ready to trade with them. If the experience goes well, I will have no problem replacing my signature.

I've also been using Leaptrade. I sent some games and received Fire Emblem Awakening, Legend of zelda link between worlds, and Metal gear rising. I'm very happy with that site.

Leaptrade is working fine for me, 99 too. I'll miss Goozex because I probably did better than most when it came to receiving new games and it was a great place to dump off garbage games which I really struggle to trade anywhere else. I'll miss swapping games for movies and vice versa, I still haven't found anything that fills that void very well. Leap and 99 are the places to go if you're looking for alternatives now Gooz and VG5 are no more. I've used GameTZ a little recently too and found a lot less asshattery then I remember from years ago. Maybe I just got lucky so far though. :)
