That was hella fast - 3 days after placing the order, Alan Wake arrived. No code and no manual but disc and case are immaculate, except for the store sticker on the inner ring.

For $10 + $2 shipping, i'm very pleased.

Just ordered Alan Wake, Alpha Protocol and The Saboteur for Xbox 360. .04 cents shy of $30 bucks, couldn't pass it up. I'll update with their condition and contents when they arrive.

I keep flip-flopping on Alpha Protocol. I nearly bought it for $10 but I ended up with the Orange Box instead. How many of you guys are getting the stickers on the inner ring of the disc? My Family Video never used them, they just wrote the number on it in Sharpie. Are they still impossible to get off?

Mine had the inner ring sticker, no sharpie.

Doesn't look like it would be too terrible to get off with a light combo of Goo Gone and rubbing alcohol, but for risk of making the problem worse, i'm probably not even going to bother.



EDIT: The sticker came loose easily enough with a fingernail so I went for it. A couple applications of Goo Gone took care of the majority of the adhesive gunk left after removing the sticker. It looks fine but still has a slight residue.

All of the discs I have gotten have had the sticker on it. I have gotten 5 or 6 games from them and they all have had the sticker on it. Personally I haven't bothered trying to take them off, I don't see the need to so much. The cases I do, but discs not so much since you rarely actually see them

A heads up to people who still play the PS2.

I stopped by my local Family Video yesterday to see what was available and saw about 1/3rd of their PS2 rental games for sale. I picked up @ $4.95 each: Grandia III, Red Dead Revolver, Odin Sphere, Shadow Hearts: From The New World and Phantasy Star Universe. I also picked up Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II for $9.95.

I asked the clerk if they were closing out their PS2 section and he replied that they were, but it was going to be a slow process because the store still rents a decent amount of PS2 games.

The thing I like about Family Video is that the clerk will check the disc and do a quick buffing if needed. This must be company poilcy because every store I visit does this.

I'm the same way; I rarely even look at the disc when I get it but if there's a tiny dent in the case I flip out. It really should be the other way around. As for the sticker, though, the last time I tried to clean a disc with adhesive remover, some dripped down onto the data side and instantly corroded it so now I'm afraid to use anything on the disc itself.

I would have loved Castlevania for $20. Meh, I should have held out on Orange Box because my recent game fund's just about tapped. :(

Hoping Cybertron just shows up on Wednesday-- none showing at all right now. We'll check back on Wednesday, then. $9.95 is aces if they've got one to sell me.

Also: received Alan Wake from them last week ($9.95). Came with mint case, AND manual. Was really pleased. Thanks, Family Video!

Ehh, pulled the trigger on it. Tried the demo and liked it a lot so the price is good enough for me.

So my order has been marked for review, is this a common thing? I have never seen this on my orders before.

I might be able to help you out with that if you wanna send me a pm. One of the stores that does the online fulfilment is about 20 minutes from my house so I could probably have them mail one out to ya.
