You guys must be upset that you didn't get any good games. Either that or there are sharkteeth in the Gamecube that scratch up the discs. I run my Gamecube games in my Wii and they've never gotten scratched or damaged or anything.


It's not the CAGs that kill discs, a lot of those turned in by soccer moms and such who don't take care of their stuff and discs. Have you seen some of the conditions those traded in Wii games are? Sometimes its hard to find a good disc out of a stack. I would say only about 50% of those disks are decent.

I also tend to recall a similar ratio of good to bad a year or so back when they went to 50% off or was it BOGO? I forget. Ended up getting a bunch of good stuff when the in store selection was still good...Warioware, Luigi's Mansion, Mario Sunshine, a couple Zeldas, etc.

That's what made me look to see if some stuff came back in stock as they shipped some items from a previous order.

I can't believe the games I just bought. It's still a decent deal even with the 99% chance of them being disc only, scratched, and resurfaced.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - GC
Resident Evil Zero - GC
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance - GC
Sonic Adventure DX: Director's - GC
Resident Evil 4 - GC
Pac-Man World Rally - GC
Pikmin - Used - GC
Resident Evil - GC
Mario Kart Double Dash - GC
Mario Party 5 - GC
The Legend of Zelda: Collector's disc - GC
Pac-Man World 2 Bundle w/Pac-M - GC
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes - GC
Mario Party 6 - Game Only - GC

for under $50 shipped... :drool::drool::drool::drool::drool: :drool::drool::drool::drool::drool::drool:

Thank you to all the contributors on this thread. When I saw those games in stock it really helped to know to quickly add "15free" and "saver" to the order. You guys saved me some $$$. :bouncy:

Wow, I didn't realize how rare Chibi-Robo was. I should have bought it for $1.91 (powerup, 15free, + 75% off of $9.99). Someone just snagged it right now.

Nice. I was hoping bumping the thread like every 5 minutes would help some CAGs catch these deals. Hopefully it helped.

If the games are really scratched, they're going back, but if they have light scratches I can live with it. It helps to have GS credit, but I just spent all of mine. I probably should have saved some for that 50% off select games sale. These gamecube games are old, but hopefully the ones we bought are better than the ones from that other sale.

This is what I've been hoping as well. I paid with credit, which is tax free instore in my state. But gamestop.com just charged me $12 tax on a $38 order. Do these gamecube 75% orders always get the tax readjusted?

It really really really pays to be an insomniac sometimes. I'm not going to have a productive workday tomorrow, but hopefully my Gamecube collection gets a heck of a lot better. ;) Totally worth it.

I think that means that someone just bought the last one right before you tried to add to cart.

At least they'll look better when played than the discs do. Got a component cable.

Still waiting for that $400 famed XRGB Mini Framemeister I splurged on.
Darn TV has no s-video input, and doesn't accept 240p from component.

Wow, it lets me check out fine with metroid prime. I would suggest creating a new account and maybe using a different form of payment if you have it.

There are still a lot of great games available. Metroid Prime 1, 2, Rogue Squadron III, Mario Baseball, Mario tennis... hopefully some more insomniac CAGs see this thread.

I think I'll just pass. Already have most of the good titles, and Mario Baseball just went OOS, so that only really leaves 3-4 titles I might play someday. Not worth the trouble at 2:30AM:drool:

Please let us know if any of them turn out to be not coasters.


RE 1, RE 0, Baten Kaitos, Warioware, Gladius, DK Jungle Beat, and TMNT work. The RE's came complete. Starfox Adventures and Wario World are not reading. Seeing if I can do anything about it; otherwise, I will return them tomorrow.

You got SOOOO lucky with the CIB RE's! Might be a restock very soon, IDK cause of it being sunday and no new shipment's into the warehouse, but anyway, I'm suprised people aren't buying Spiderman 2, one of like, maybe TWO superhero games that I'd recommend, It's a great game in general.

hi all,

longtime reader, first time poster - im much more a collector than an active gamer, and i collect mostly 3rd and 4th gen. picked up a gamecube at a thrift store a few months back and been using the GS sale to compile a library.

despite the sentiment here that theyd be predominantly (mini-) coasters, i figured id give the online order a shot this past week. ordered 44 games, 10 of which didnt work.

two big questions:

1. of the 10 that don't work, the majority of them have a readable surface in GREAT condition (no noticeable scratches at all). being relatively unfamiliar with the ins and outs of optical disc games, is their non-functionality likely the result of too much of the disc being resurfaced off?

2. on a lot of the discs, working and nonworking alike, theres a dark grey chalk-like substance around the hole in the middle of the disc. if you handle a few of them, it rubs off on your fingers - likewise if you take a cloth to the surface of the "hole". the substance is NOT the consistency of dirt, so i was wondering if this could be from resurfacing too.

any help/tips/info would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much!
