I guess they sent the good stuff to Columbus...

All the stores I went to around Cleveland had nothing. Meanwhile my friends back in Jersey be getting great hauls from various stores within 5 miles of his house...


Tell me of these friends from New Jersey. I live near the Brick Gamestop and they had jack. I'd love to buy some games of them

Posted this in the trade forums too, but it might get a little more attention here. If anyone has a good number of CIB games in stock at their local store and would like to help a CAG, please send me a PM. Looking for some sports games and some other stuff on the cheap. Was going to drive out to a store 50 miles out but everything was disc only. Thanks guys!

I've missed it every single time, but it seems like they always get a few things in stock in the middle of the night. I'm trying to stay awake, but I'm about to pass out. I hit up 3 GS stores today.

At the 3rd store, I found mint condition
Starfox Adventures
Starfox Assault
Resident Evil 3
Resident Evil 0
Incredible hulk: Ultimate destruction,
and a few other gems.

All the discs look brand new in mint condition. There's only one problem. This store threw away all of their cases. I specifically remember seeing the resident evil 0, 3, and one of the starfox cases on their shelf a while back.

I guess when the xbox 720 and the playstation 4 come out, Gamestop will have to throw away all of their Wii cases and all of their $9.99 and under Xbox 360 cases. Small stores will probably have to throw away all of their ps3 and xbox cases except for recent releases. Gamestop should figure out a way to fit more shelves in their big ass stores like the one I was at tonight.

It sure is a good thing they have walls and walls of ipads, ipods, and apple accessories. It's awesome because Apple doesn't have its own dedicated store in the mall where you can try out their merchandise, get free warrantee coverage, and in-store maintenance.

So I placed a online store pick up order for Lord of the rings war in the north CE for xbox 360. My email said they couldnt find it and got canceled. Anyway, since i was going to the mall (15 mins away) I went to that same place and guess what, the lady found it in the back stockroom. $19.99 CE. I went to two gamestops and said that they havent had any since last April and were shipped out even when i show them the online store checker. GS has some lazy people. Its not hard to pull out drawers or run to the back to check.

I never play any mario party before and was wondering if anyone can tell me if its worth it and which is the best one? I was thinking mario party 4.

One GS store the dude told me that other stores are shipping it out to the warehouse or a different location that sells better.

Im so glad I pay $10 for the gameboy player with disc. Man, that thing was hard to find

I started searching around for a Gamecube disc sized wallet for the games I picked up through this deal. Only one of the 15 games came with the real case. Best offer I found was this on eBay. $8.99 for two 12-disc capacity cases and free shipping. I would rather not have the keychain, but i can just break it off. Thought I'd share with the rest of you.

Went to 3 stores I never visit today and found some scraps.
I guess the best was Mario dance complete but ragged for $2.xx...

but at one store a lady came in when I was leaving with... a gamecube and games!

gs staff member was cool and I bought the GC (wires but no controllers just a wavebird remote - which is always good.. and a screen! (which may not work)
+ a dozen games best of which is SSBM....
$15 for all...

there were a couple ps2 games in the box...sadly she traded in a bunch to BB!
lol I said to her... for $.25? and she said "well I got something for them..." lol
"I'd bet ya dollars to donuts ..."

Went to testing some of the games and so far 2 are not reading out of like 6. Have you guys tried yours and what is your success rate so far? Any suggestions on making these work. These were mostly disc only in sleeves. The complete ones seem to be in better shape. Who knows.. the ones that initially work now might not be good enough to finish the whole game. argh..

I've had an 80% success rate. My sister and I bought about 20 games. Four didn't work. Two couldn't be read at all. Another had a crack. My daughter tried to play Mario Kart: Double Dash, but it got a disc read error just after choosing which cup to challenge for.

Bought 25 with quick test 3 haven't worked. Not even sure if I should make the effort to return. As for fixes I've just rubbed it like crazy with a soft cloth. It worked for one.

Only 1 out of the 40 games I bought didn't work. About 60% of them were scratched to hell, and others even had some scratches on the label side, but I've loaded all of them and played about a stage each and so far so good. Can't say these are in any worse condition than some of the countless games I've bought off dishonest sellers on eBay/Amazon, so meh, whatever.

Had a restock last night and midday today but they go OOS in like 2 minutes, and conditions... questionable... best bets a store.

I'm sure this has been asked plenty of time but how do I go about exchanges / returns. I haven't play the games yet but I let my brother test them out for me. He set aside Pokemon Colosseum and Sonic Adventure: Battle 2 and Pokemon had scratches on the front of the game.

I want to exchange it or return it but not sure if I can do it in store and even if I can no Gamestop in my area has Gamecube games.

Wait you can transfer items from one store to a local store?

I never knew you could do that with gamestop. I only ever remembering to be able to special order stuff from game crazy a number of years ago.

Apparently so, sifting through these forums really help us cheap asses looking for a good deal.
