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


21 games for under 50, no b2g2 just 75% off.


They have a B2G2F on GC games on their front page (it's in the scrolling Featured Deals thing). When I posted, the 75% wasn't working and I couldn't figure out how to get B2G2F. But now it seems as though it's back to 75% off... still don't get how B2G2F works.

So I think I'm getting a bit too in over my head.

Called around a couple Gamestops today trying to get a copy of Mario Party 7. One of the associates was helpful enough to call around to other stores. She ended up finding one and had it shipped to my local store......along with their entire stock of Gamecube games.

I'm also still waiting to hear back on a couple of higher priced transfers that I requested Friday..

No turning back now I guess.

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


It's a more user friendly robot battle game. Perfect if you aren't looking for unusual controls (Virtual On) or hordes of enemies (Dynasty Warriors Gundam).

Custom Robo isn't as well known as it could've been, no PAL release...

Got my 18 games in the mail today. Only 2 had cover art (Ultimate Spiderman & Wave Race), one was complete (Bomberman Jetters), Looked at the discs and none looked rough. Hopefully I got lucky. No huge titles mostly non sports filler. Still happy with 18 games for about a buck a piece before shipping. Will be testing tonight. Wish me luck I may need it.

Second batch of 12 games.

9 generic cases
3 original cases (2 with manuals)
11 games work in Gamecube (at least to title screen)
1 does not work in Gamecube or Wii

11 out of 12 is a shockingly good result by Gamestop standards. The bad news? The one game that does not work: Mario Kart. I'm supposed to get Wind Waker in 2 days. I suspect that will be dead, too.

Thank you CAG, I knew that no one in my area would care too much about GC stuff and got some pretty decent games today.

Disc Only:
Geist
Reisdent Evil Zero
Star Fox Adventures
007 Agent Under Fire
Animal Crossing

Artwork/Disc
Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life
Turok Evolution

Complete
DDR Mario Mix
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3

I was able to score all that for about 15$ and tax. The condition of some of the discs do worry me though but I'll test them out later today to see what happens. If you see stuff out of stock online go in to your store anyways if it isn't too big of a hassle. The same goes for seeing inventory online that isn't on the shelf, I wouldn't of got Animal Crossing unless I asked for it.

They made one error arguably in my favor. One Piece Pirates Carnival has the correct case/booklets, yet One Piece Grand Adventure disc.

I bought fire emblem and pikmin 2 today but when I got home the pikmin 2 didn't work :C

Does anyone have cubivore for trade? Disc only would be fine, pm me?

Also, is there anywhere to buy a genuine game case? Nintendo doesn't sell them anymore and the ones on ebay look like they are in terrrrrrrible condition :/

Nope. I actually want to get the one that holds Japanese Gamecube games, but they are pretty non existent.
You could get some Jewel cases, but I really want Amarays at that size. So far, I'm just using some cheap thin 2-in-one dvd cases.

The best alternative is to go to a GS store with actual GC games and just buy the sports/cheap games which come in gamecube cases or ask an associate to switch cases. I bought Tiger Woods 2003 for .25 and got a nice case for my disc only Kirby Air Ride.

order came in of 7 games. all gutted in generic cases. Tested 5 of them so far (~1hr of play) no problems yet. Can't expect much for about $1.75 per title.

If anyone has a spare Kirby Air Ride, I have a few games I can get/trade. Just let me know what you are looking for. It's the only game I was unable to find in my area.

Got probably the last GC game I'm going to order on this sale. I wasn't even really into it, I just got it for cart filler for free shipping on the PS2 sale. Naruto Clash of Ninja 2. Actually not bad, story is lousy though. Never really cared for that part of the anime. Which brings my grand total for the sale up to 12 games, 10 of which worked, for $26 minus the $5 I got back for the 2 that were damaged.

10 for $21, not bad at all. But I realized I bought a game I already had, doh, not even worth the 68 cents to return it. I guess that's one present I don't need to shop for this Christmas :D

Third and I assume last shipment of the sale, 3 games this time (only ordered because of Wind Waker). All in generic cases. I was irritated that Wind Waker did not work in Gamecube, but it does work in Wii. I wonder if the last person who had it returned it because it didn't work.

3 for 3 this time, making a total of 21 out of 24 for the total sale (WWE Wrestlemania XIX and Mario Kart did not work, while Tiger Woods 2004 had a missing disc). Pretty pleased with my results overall. Other than Wind Waker, I never would have bothered with any of these games, but for about 2 bucks each, I'm pleased with having a bunch of average to above average games. Still wouldn't buy from Gamestop over eBay regularly knowing the games are hit or miss, but for a sale this good I'd be in again.

Just curious, did anyone get their hands on the Fire Emblem in northern Illinois? I see it's finally disappeared from the online list.

The Fire Emblem and Twilight Princess that kept popping up appeared to have been an error. They've probably been gone for ages now.

Word from earlier in this thread is they get shipped back or trashed.

So I'm still waiting on shipments to be sent to my local store. I know its been said that the sale ends on the 27th but I am unable to find anything on the Gamestop site that says so.

Hopefully that date isn't correct or they atleast extend it. I'm too poor to pick up anything else at full value. :(

Edit: Whoops, nvm. I see the details now after adding a game to my cart. Fingers crossed they extend it...

Took one of the broken games I got to the disk resurfacer. Cost 5 dollars, but it worked. I'll take the other after the weekend. So now I have a copy of Custom Robo, fingers crossed for Pokemon XD.

When does this 75% end?

I just picked up gotcha force. Played it and it's not that bad. Why is this game in high demand?

Welp, my GC spree ended with 60~ games purchased and about 70-80 dollars spent.
I scoured tons of gamestops in eastern PA and almost all of NJ. I got every good or expensive game on the system now, cept a few that I knew weren't in stores anymore (at least in the tristate area). Sadly a good 40-50 of those were in sleeves =(
Those poor poor boxes...
