1. What exactly should we be discussing in this thread?

2. You obviously only post when you have something interesting to add to the discussion


1. If you don't have anything meaningful to add (such as info related to prices or about the game itself [bonus features, reviews, DLC content within game, Limited Edition info, etc] ) then no need to add meaningless posts. That way clutter gets out of the way where people don't have to sort through 15 pages to find that "one post" that actually had valuable info for the CAG community. For example Black Friday, there were pages after pages of nonsense, yet a good post from someone about a $5 coupon code gets buried amid the idiotic comments on how much you want to pay for a game.

2. You never done that in a post? FIRST? At least I keep my "meaningless" posts to one word. By the way, thanks for spending your time trying to find something about me. I sure do make an impression on people like you. I love the attention. :lol:

This is a perfect example of a meaningful post that helps the CAG Community:

To bring this back to OP, Cheapy speculates/stipulates that the nightly deals will be the same for the end-of-year sale. So, I have gathered each night/weekend so far (sorry, if I missed one). Anyway, would it be a good idea to develop a wiki for this?

Here is the list:


Now compare it to this post:

Hoping for a $10 Portal 2 since I missed the other deal


or this post:

Hopefully they have that 12$ off two games thing again as I really loved it last time :)


Big difference, right?

I can't think of anything else that I want right now, but I know if they have some killer prices on games that weren't really on my radar I would jump on them. Anyone else have this problem?

For example, I know I'm gonna bite on Transformers: War for Cybertron if its $9.99 or under...even though my crazy backlog just continues to grow and grow...

Not sure. Cheapy or some other vets may know. This is the first holiday season that I have scoured the forums. I think it is developing into serious cheaptitis.

Although Gay Ass Gamers may attract the wrong crowd...

Not that there's anything wrong with it.


Solid!

Thanks for this post!

Hopefully the prices are a little lower during the year end sale - there are several games I want to pick up but since I won't be getting to them for a while, the cheaper I can get them for now, the less likely they will be able to be had for cheaper once I get around to playing them.

That's one big reason I'm waiting for the free shipping. I would be alright paying the prices several games are right now, but the shipping would negate a healthy chunk of my potential savings.

What kind of condition are used games from gamefly? I have heard that they usually are in pretty good condition but I just wanted to make sure. I have never bought from them before.

its different for everyone. They are 98% of the time playable. Out of 4 360 games, 2 were excellent, while 2 had chips but were good shape other than that.

ALso if the game has an online code (what newer game doesnt have one these days) a code thats redeemable will be inside the game.

Well that sounds good. Definitely going to look into buying from them this year.

The one i just got had some minor scratches, but otherwise the packaging looks like someone just cut open the security tape and set the box aside. I've gotten some that are pristine, but never any that i would consider complaining about.

Having purchased upwards of 200 titles (primarily :ps3: and :360: but have also purchased :ds: :wii:, etc.) for both myself and friends/family, I have a 0% defect rate; they come with DLC intact and the case, manual & artwork are practically "New". That said, I highly recommend GameFly for quality, value, and customer service...no if's, and's, or but's......

I've received 6 PS3 games from them so far, all of them are chipped, and all but one have light scratches (the one that didn't have scratches was a free copy of Brink, lol). All of them play perfectly and included valid DLC.

I got RedFaction:Armagedon from them, the disc was playable and some scratches. My case had some pieces missing from it.

A question: So if a game I'm interested in on Gamefly doesn't currently have a Buy Used option (having only a Rent option), does that mean it won't be part of the sale? I'm not exactly sure how Gamefly works, so clarification would be appreciated.

Thanks,

-B


games often come back in stock for a sale. in fact, they often go in and out of stock during a sale.

All of mine besides one have been perfect sans some dust or prints. But some people have had problems it seems

Scratched blu rays? I've never seen that before.

You must have some careless shipping guys

Yeah I was surprised as well. The first game I received had several light scratches (Portal 2), but the rest of the games don't have many. I'm not sure how they managed to get scratched but it's definitely possible. I'd imagine it's much worse for 360 games that come from gamefly.

It's not all that uncommon though, I've had a couple brand new PS3 games that have light scratches on them right after taking them out of the case.

Monthly sales seem to go live fairly early in the day.

My last few i've received from Gamefly, all PS3 games, have been almost perfect. I received a few before that that had a scuff or two, but they usually wipe right off with my t-shirt, due to the coating on the bottom of PS3 discs. It's pretty tough to not get a PS3 disc to work no matter what it looks like.

hoping they put Infamous 2 back on sale. My order was apparently lost in the mail and they would only give me a refund.

also kind of hoping the sales aren't so great after all so I don't feel compelled to buy a bunch of games. My backlog was big before the sales these past few weeks...and I haven't even bought Skyrim yet! :whee:

I wonder if these "chips" have caused anyone trouble in trading in these games to Amazon/Gamestop. Anyone have any input on that?

Yeah, for the refurb charge. You know, because they actually fix these games instead of slapping 3 stickers on it and shelving it.

I'm thinking of trading in my Dead Space 2, I only wanted the Extraction code, really. Still haven't even played it, and my backlog is big enough so I don't see a reason to hold onto it while the TIV is still good.

I'm reading that as sarcastic. Because I've found boogers on gamestop discs among other things...

You should move it to the front of your backlog. One of the best games of the year.

How much is the TIV anyway?
