Debating about Sonic Generations. I already beat it, but I think it's good enough to replay again.

Should I get it on PS3 or 360? I heard the PS3 version has input lag.

I got my copy of Driver: SF :360: today and it was in perfect condition. The disc was not scratched at all. Very satisfied.

Just picked up Force Unleashed 2 for $8 and Alice Madness Returns for $13. Couldnt say no to those low prices...and they were both miraculously back in stock.

I tried picking up Alice last night and I got all the way to checkout before it was removed from my cart. It was very annoying. Glad I could pick it up today.

NCIS wasn't terrible, it was like playing the CSI games, really short and really easy to 1000/1000 achievements, just playing through the storyline. Definitely not worth buying though and I'm a huge fan of the show, but was definitely disappointed with what they could've done with it.

My copy of Portal 2 arrived today. I was pleased with the shipping time, since I think I ordered it on Tuesday. However, I can't say I'm at all pleased with the condition. It's just scratched all to hell. It looks like it was never stored in the sleeve and just got tossed around someone's house. I'm not even 100% certain it will work, although it *probably* will, and I'll try it later today.

The disc also has those chips people were talking about, although, to me, they look more like dents. I knew the odds of the disc having those spots on the edge going in, so no complaints there. I thought that was the only gamble I was taking and I was prepared to accept a disk with the chips/dents provided it was otherwise in excellent condition.

This pretty much put me off from GameFly, doubt I'll buy anything else there. It might be the way to go if you're using it as a rental service and you can rent the disc, judge its condition and decide whether or not you want to keep it. For me, though, just as someone who never rents anything and only buys... this is the worst condition used game I've ever bought in my life--and I've bought from GameStop, BlockBuster, flea markets, friends, Goodwill, eBay, GameGavel, Amazon and its various sellers. Honestly, I'm surprised, because everyone has so many positive things to say about GameFly.

Gamefly is a crapshoot, especially on Xbox 360. My PS3 discs always come pristine (except for the chips/dents) but Xbox is about 50/50.

But I'm the kind of guy that, as long as the game plays fine, I don't really give a shit what it looks like. And I've never had a Gamefly game not play for me.

Props for Stepping up and playing through it. Can't believe it traded in for 17.


$11 T.I.V at Best Buy + 50% bonus. I felt a little guilty trading it in because eventually someone else will buy it and be subjected to it. A better man might have destroyed it to help save his fellow gamers...but 17 bucks is 17 bucks.

went ahead and jumped on Dead Island and Final Fantasy XIII-2. Now I'm off to watch like an hour of FF XIII cutscenes to get the story.

I have ordered about 10 times from GF for used game. Xmen Destiny is the first PS3 game where I received with the chips along the outer edge. Is this someone intentionally doing this or does GF have some automatic machine sorter that is doing it?

I'm pretty sure it's been done in a machine of some sort, whether it be a sorter or resurfacer or whatever. Looks like it would be hard to replicate manually. I think the disc would have to be spinning at a high speed and bumping a hard surface along the edge to do that.

I've ordered at least 10 times from them and all of the games they have sent me have been in absolute pristine condition, including case and manual and all the online codes. No complaints at all. Just jinxed myself.

They show various cutscenes throughout XIII-2 that kinda give you a feel for what happened during XIII (I think some might almost be straight out of XIII but they are used effectively), just not entirely sure if they cover everything. I played through about 3/4 of XIII and completely through XIII-2 and didn't feel like I missed much.

got my copy of inFamous 2 today i've only ordered once before from gamefly and that game (phineas and ferb PS3) came in great condition with a few chips on the edge. infamous 2 looks great as well has chips too a little more than P&F, but no scratches and it plays fine. i got P&F from the LA distribution center since i'm 20 mins from LA this one though came from the PA distribution center.

Yea XIII-2 does a good job telling what happened in XIII. If you haven't played XIII, you shouldn't feel lost. Maybe you'll not get a lil "inside joke" or fact here and there, but its not important.

XIII-2 also have a beginners primer that basically have the entire XIII story to read.

I'll just give that a look then thanks. Started watching a youtube account that had all the cut scenes and alot of them were just 2 mins boss introductions.

On the other note, i've seen the comments about chips for a while now, and i haven't had much trouble with them. I got around 7-8 games from gamefly and only one wasn't mint, and that one only had one chip. if i get a bad one though ill send a complaint that directs them to this/previous thread(s).

Does anyone know if Alice madness returns comes with the download for the original game? I hear online passes come with other games but don't know how extra dlc works on gamefly.

the cutscenes in FFXIII and XIII-2 are dreadful. I gave up on them really quick. Sadly, you have to press the skip button several times before getting back to gameplay.

Yep.

I said that about my first 10 or so games, then my Dead Island came with 2 cracks in the center ring - so I had to send it back.

The return was easy enough, and they refunded my money fast - I fedex'ed it at the end of the day Wednesday, got my $ refunded on Friday.

I was even able to re-buy at the sale price thanks to them re-running the sale.

Yeah, I was just gonna post that. Also, this is one of the best licensed soundtracks I've ever heard in a video game. Simply incredible tune selection.

I loved Driver SF. I'm kind of glad I didn't read much about it before hand though, because if I read the premise on how it worked I probably would have thought it sounded stupid and passed on it. It was a lot of fun though, despite the weird story.
