Found that the availabilty for pickup@store is useless today.
Collierville Crossin
305 New Byhalia Rd
Ste 104
Collierville, TN 38017
For Smash Brothers Melee and Mario Golf namely. Guess 'all of those were sent to other stores' meant I should have asked for fkstick's Ebay account name.

Not to mention I'm now two for two on 'oh, we have the Gameboy player, but no disc'. Are you people that fucking stupid? Yet again Gamestop backs up my theory that they will take Madden 1978 with a bite taken out of it for some random trade in value.

Yeah, I called that one and pretty much every one in the Memphis area, most didn't have them at all. I nabbed the last of the decent stuff at the one by wolfchase the day the sale started.

I know this isn't useful to most folks, but if you're inclined to have multiple GameCube/Game Boy Players in your home, you can use a single Game Boy Player disc. Once it loads in one, you can pop it out and load it in the other(s). I've had four running at once while using a single disc. :D

Cool.. I didn't know that. Now can you hook up 4 GB players together if you have a multilink cable ?

I think I'm done, except I might pick up a few more cheap ones like 1080 Snowboarding and Godzilla. I got F-Zero and a working Custom Robo. I was going to pick up a few controllers, but I got a sweet Craigslist deal today.

I got a harvest moon from online today but it looks like they repaired the center of it has this metal mini disk on the center. The game works just found it kind of odd haven't seen one like that before.

Yup. Or, you can connect up to four GameCubes (via GameBoy Player) to a fifth GameCube (or Wii) playing a Connectivity title (like Four Swords Adventures).

Did they already sell out all the good games, because they haven't been back in stock for a while.

Went out again today and did pretty damn good. Hit up 3 gamestops and finished the day pretty damn successful.

CIB:
Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness
Donkey Konga 2

Box/disc only:
Tony Hawk's Underground 2

Disc only:
Soul Calibur 2
Custom Robo
Baten Kaitos
Sonic Gems Collection

I'll have to coverproject the disc only games, but other than that I'm very happy with today's haul. I'll be going out again tomorrow. Gonna ride this sale for all it's worth.

Also, I should say: I'm not sure if I'm just lucky or what, but every single game I've gotten from this sale plays perfectly and I've tested them all in both the cube and wii. In fact, only one game looked iffy when I bought it (Custom Robo), it had the dirty spindle hole. It plays fine though. Everything else has ranges from good to perfect condition.

I hit up the Store at 800 N Kedzie today, as well as the one in Merrionette on West 115th (where I got Custom Robo, but they told me that was their last GC game and only had one controller and one memory card left). The first time I went out, I hit the store somewhat by the United Center but not really? I wish I could remember the street...if you're driving to the UC coming from 55 you have to turn left at one of the intersections before the UC and its down their in a small shopping plaza. The cube games were all in sleeves in a box behind the counter, I had to ask to see them. I'd give you a better idea but I just can't remember the name of that street. It's not a GS I usually ever go to, but it is a pretty nice one.

Those are protective stickers they paste on to both sides of the disc to hide cracks the refurb process causes around the spindle area at times. They do that a lot to PS2/Wii titles they refurb. My advice is never take it off if you plan on keeping the disc. It'll likely be an eye sore you don't want to see.

So I place a online store pickup last friday. On sat. (1/18) Got a email saying ready for pickup. Thing is, they couldnt find it so told me to talk to a manager on Monday. Today i spoke to him and he claimed that holds are 24 hrs only and that the game metal gear solid twin snakes was sold last wed. Then told me they have gamecube games for 75% off. It sucks, but i guess he wanted it.

Ahh okay thanks for clearing that up for me I had never seen them before! Yeah I was kind of hoping it wouldn't work so I would have a reason to return it since it is pretty ugly haha. Actually that order I got Resident evil 4, Golden Eye rogue agent, TMNT Battle Nextus that all work but it was kind of an impulse buy and regret it a little hah

I've recently picked up more (online order not here yet).
Out of the new ones, I'm still testing them. Fight Night Round 2 and Smash Bros have had trouble so far.

All four WWE games work. Figures.

I just got done with a marathon of testing the 40 games I ordered online and 8 of them either weren't recognized or crashed during loading or game play. Ironically, every game that I got that came in a official Gamecube case with cover art worked. I have a bunch of 99 cent (actually 21 cent) sports games coming that I ordered hoping they come in original cases which means they should work, too!

3 out of 8 of my games did not work. 5 of them did work and the only two that were complete in box and manual worked fine. As far as the 3 that didn't work at all well....not much to say since they either would not read at all or would crash moments into the game.

Picked up an Odama with everything including the mic except there was no manual. Oh well, still a good catch.

I've been seeing a bunch of people picking up Custom Robo. Almost nabbed it myself this past weekend but passed because I knew absolutely nothing about it. Is it worth another trip to Gamestop to get it?

.......im really just trying to find an excuse to go and buy more games:p

All of the 7 games i ordered online came in boxes and all work except my copy of Shadow The Hedgehog it has like a big grey sticker on the front and back of the disk is there any easy way to remove the sticker?

No restock in days now... guess it's dead. They're also running a B2G2F on GC games, to clear out the sports stuff.

All smaller stores sent their stuff to the closest large store, because smaller stores don't have the room. You should call around and see.

Wait, by boxes do you mean generic cases or the original game case? If all 7 of your games included their original case, then that's a miracle.

So is it both 75% and B2G2 or is it either or.
