Looks like everyone's really cleaned shop in the past day or two. Now the closest stores I can find with Gamecube stuff are over 90 miles away, if even that close.

Just for kicks, I tried to do the store pickup option for Mario Kart, which was somehow the only GCN title showing up as in stock at a store just a couple of miles away. Received a prompt cancellation email in just a few minutes, too. Not surprised.

As much as I love symphonia. It's far from the best Tales game IMO.


"Far from"???" Which would be much better than Symphonia?

Got: Game Boy Player
Waverace
Rouge Squadron II

The Game Boy Player didn't come with the disc, and whenever it was traded in, the owner mixed in another one. The disc I got instead was... Mario Kart Double Dash Oh well. $2.50 ain't bad.

Mario Kart is the better deal. :applause:

Try going in, might be hiding behind some games, the way they shelve them.

What I don't understand is how Gamestop would allow anyone to trade theirs in without the startup disc, but from what I've heard, it happens quite often.

I'm so glad I tracked down a complete set at a local Gamestop about three years ago, although I'm a little sad that it doesn't look the greatest on my HDTV (at least not without the component cables, which I'm not about to spend $100+ on).

How far in the past? A person in NeoGaf posted last year that he/she couldn't get one even from Customer service.

Just got to another GS and although everything gamecube was in generic cases, I found several good games:

LoZ: Collector's Ed
LoZ: Ocarina of Time MQ
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
Eternal Darkness
FF Crystal Chronicles
Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life
Ikaruga

I'm pretty happy with my findings.

Going to check another GS next week and see what they have.

Got Mario Golf, RE 3 Nemesis and RE Zero. The first GameStop I went to, I asked the guy if they still had GameCube games and he insisted they didn't, even after I told him the website said they had some in stock. So I went to another a mile down the road and he said they didn't have any either, but did a search for Mario Golf and told me the first store I went to did in fact have several GameCube games and even called to confirm. So I drove back to the first GameStop and told him that the other store called and you're holding Mario Golf for me. Guy didn't apologize for being wrong or anything, just acted like I was never in there. I understand not all GameStops have horrible clerks, but many of the ones around here have world class tools behind the counter.

Holy crap... even if disc only, that's a fantastic haul.

I wish I made better use of the B2G2F but I was just way too busy when anything good was available and it was just too easy for me to put off, that when I did finally decide to try, all the good games were gone. It's now hitting me that in a few months, I will no longer see GC gamest at GS...

You know that part at the bottom of your receipt that asks to you let them know about your experience at the store? Use that and give them and honest and professional feedback about your issue. I usually fill out that survey if I have a really good experience or really bad experience. They don't do anything for the good feedback (obviously) but for the few times I've had bad experiences, they called me back and asked me what they could do to fix the issue.

Hey guys, my first 3 orders arrived earlier today. Have spent the day cleaning, testing them. Still not done.

Had 39 games, of those 39 about 90% of them had sticker residue on middle ring.
They were all greasy, probably from the disc resurfacing machine they use.
Of those 39, had 2 wrong games. Got a Pokemon colosseum bonus disc instead of pokemon colosseum. And a Magical Melody instead of a wonderfuly life.
13 of the 39 games didnt boot, and gave me a loading error. The rest at least made it to title screen.

As for bottom side scratches, most looked very good. (Due to a probably very good resurfacing machine.)
As for top side, this is where the resurface machine wont fix them. Probably 15 ish games came with small to large portions of missing color. Some had small dots, some had up to 10 dots. Some had rings that go around the entire disc.

So I had 3 separate orders arrive, each order had only 1 game with correct cover art, but no manuals. Maybe trying to spread around the games with cover art.

For all of you that made your purchases online, did you notice that they charged tax on the gross amount of the purchase?

Taxes ended up being more than 25% I'd the net purchase. There's no way that this can be right.

HA! I've had thieves that work there who take great deals from under my nose.

My latest nightmare was looking for uDraw+Pictionary before Christmas. Store refused my hold request and was caught in a lie about their available stock.

Called corporate, got an apology, and a $10 coupon (ONLINE only... lame.)

So no REs or Zeldas for me, unfortunately, but I did get about 10 games for 15 bucks, with Kirby Air Ride, MM collection and the Sonic Collection being my highlights. I'm not all that upset. Might see if one of the other stores has anything near me, but I won't hold my breathe. I was happy getting what I did. Oh, and I found a copy of disc only Baten Kaitos Origin, so I thought that was awesome.

I'm not entire sure, but that's only during the pending order. Once they ship, you'll be charge the correct tax (on the discounted total).

What is CIB mean?
Anyway, nothing so far. all the stores say don't carry anymore. I did get last year Fire Emblem complete with Case and Booklet for half price ($12.50) I was shocked by how great the condition was.

Well I took your advice and took the survey and wrote about my experience. Hopefully they try to get a hold of me, even if I only get to complain to a real human from GameStop, that will be enough compensation for me.
