Let's everyone hit up and post in every Gamestop thread, everyday, and inform them that "No cases, no manuals, no DLC codes or online passes, and scratched discs FTL"


We do!

Why the hell? I have purchased 100 of used games over the last 20+ years, and none of them are chipped until Gamefly. People purchase used games and special editions for a number of different reasons such as for their collections all the time. Some people like to be able to trade their used games. That comment of yours about people shouldn't be buying used games if they don't want or like chips in them is arrogant, ignorant and very elitest. It's just plain ugly, and a slap to the face for those of us who have gotten these chipped discs from Gamefly. You of all people, with your 79 trades, should know better.


It's ignorant and elitist to expect some wear and tear from used games? Especially from a rental service where the copy probably made it into the hands of quite a few people? Gamefly offers pretty good prices, probably with this in mind. If you aren't satisfied, there are plenty of other services that offer used games. Dry those eyes and vote with your dollar if chipped games are a concern for you.

Well one, calling chipped discs a "minor" and "cosmetic" issue is very subjective. Chipped discs can put extra labor on your disc drive, and beyond that it's a fairly serious form of damage (even if it plays fine). A piece of the disc is literally missing. By your reasoning, I could draw all over the top of a disc with sharpie (hell, let's just put my name on it) and since it would still play, you'd call it a "minor cosmetic issue". Now I can't speak for everyone obviously, but I think a lot of people here would be rather miffed if a company stated sending out discs with sharpie writing all over them. Of course if that's just your opinion, there's nothing wrong with that. Just saying.

As for your comments about the mailers causing the damage, I have to chime in that that is not the reason behind the chips. I've been a Netflix subscriber for years, and not once have I ever received a chipped disc (and Netflix mailers are VERY chintzy). GameFly discs are chipped during the resurfacing process, and judging from the frequency of good versus bad discs coming from certain distribution centers, that fact has generally been confirmed.


All of my chipped discs if I have gotten any chips have been cosmetic. Also just want to say that I have gotten chipped disks from Netflix every now and again but not arguing against your assessment, just giving my experience.

Anyway, there should just be a message in OP saying that Gamefly disks can come with these chips and that should be it. Then anyone that was expecting their pristine rented out disks could just leave and I wouldn't have to wade through tons and tons of chipped disk comments every time I try to read this thread.

That's kind of a silly statement, since GameFly is literally the only retailer who sends chipped discs.

Unless they do things completely different online, I've gotten multiple chipped discs when buying used at Gamestop. So no, Gamefly is not the only one selling chipped discs.

Personally I don't give a Fuck as long as the game runs fine.

Perhaps the chipped discs you got at Gamestop were traded in by people that bought them from gamefly?????

:shock:

But, but, but, I thought part of the complaints were Gamestop won't take a chipped disc?

Very true; the OP should state the facts. The problem is that this topic was generally created because CheapyD was slow to update his official one (thus this is the official one now), and in the original topic CheapyD described GameFly discs as coming in "excellent condition". Thus sparked the chipped disc war that continues to flare up now and then.

Telling people to stop talking about something so "you" don't have to deal with a minor inconvenience is a little asinine though. Sorry.

Came here to read about GameFly deals, stepped into a 'Chipped Disk' system war instead.

Funny thing is is that it really hasn't been an issue for awhile now. People have been posting up their experiences such as "Got a disc from Pittsburgh with chips.", "Got a disc from LA in mint condition.", all the while some new buyers came in and asked some questions, people discussed signing up to "keep" Catherine due to it's limited availability, some (including me) discussed the different distribution centers and their record of disc quality, etc etc.

Things were calm and nice (for once). Then what happened? A couple asshats decided to jump in and scream "OMFG STOP TALKING ABOUT CHIPPED DISCS LEAVE NOW" and now everyone seems to be bitching about something. "Chipped discs FTL", "go away if you don't like chipped discs", "stop talking about chipped discs because I don't want to see it", etc etc.

The problem is much less some on-topic, calm discussion about receiving chipped or mint discs than it is idiots coming in here flipping out about those discussions. The common remark is "If you don't like chipped discs GTFO of here.", but right back at them "If you don't want to see people talking about chipped discs GTFO of here yourself."

Honestly people just like to overreact on this forum. I find it funny. It's comments like this one that just fan the flames:

holy bloody hell... are people still complaining about chipped discs? dont like chipped discs do ya? then buy ur games somewhere else, is that so fucking hard to comprehend?

Such is CAG.

I have never seen one chipped disc in 15+ years of going to GameStop. Scratched the hell up? Of course. Chipped? Not once. I am sorry if you've run into that (that sucks), but you can't blame me for feeling like you're just making that up to make a point.

As for not caring if it runs fine or not; that's fine and that's your choice. A lot of people don't feel that way though. I personally like buying used games for good prices in good condition. Am I picky? Sure, and that's my right. It's also the right of anyone else who hops onto this thread without knowing what they're getting into.

I received my copy of Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2012 from GF today. The disc has a few small chips on the edges and there appeared to be some white buffing compound reside on the label-side of the disc around the edge. I cleaned the crude off edge of the disc with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. The data side of the disc has some hair-line scratches that were probably from be run through a polishing/buffering machine. Overall, the game came in good condition. It was shipped from the Pittsburgh center. It is a fun, easy, and enjoyable game so far. I'll probably finish it over the weekend and then sell it to Best Buy for the 2x promo. It's going for $7 base so $14 double, which is pretty good considering it only cost $8 from GF. Best Buy wants $25 for a used copy of it. Also, I should be receiving Battlefield 3 in the mail tomorrow.

What are you guys using your 20% coupon from the Summer sale on? It works on preorders, but Darksiders 2 has already been $40 or less. Think Borderlands 2 will be $48 or less anywhere else?

Lol, I love Knuckles, he made the show hilarious. I gave up on buying it regularly and just used my free trial to rent Catherine and then bought it. I don't think they ever restocked it after it went on sale.

Just checkout out my 1st review for Catherine and damn how could I miss on such a great game. Bi am not much of a pusszle gamer but will surly give this game a shot.

One question are any of puzzles/boss fights time base or do any of them have time restrictions?

They're basically all time based because when you're doing the puzzles, the blocks at the bottom keep falling off, so if you take too much time, you'll fall with the bottom blocks and die. And if the bosses catch up to you while you're doing the puzzles, they'll kill you as well.

Hi, am I allowed to post to this thread if it is about something other than a chipped disc? Okay I'll just say my thing and leave and then you can all get back to it.

So earlier I posted about how my Halo Anniversary from GF didn't include the slipcover over the case (completist freak, yes I am). GF sent me another one and... it didn't have it either. So I explained to them exactly what the slipcover was, and sent them a picture.

Now they say they are sending me a third one, hopefully with slipcover this time, as well as another Assassin's Creed Rev which arrived kind of dinged up, and which I originally wasn't going to even comment on, but the second missing Halo slipcover annoyed me, so I did. I offered to return the extra cases but they said I didn't have to. Confirming my suspicions that GF makes enough money off rentals that they don't have to care about such things.

Long story less long, I'm going to end up with a number of extra DLC codes. Watch the freebie forum, as I shall be sharing them.
