Might want to keep that in mind when sending it in. The odd thing is when I check the trade-in page for the trade, there's nothing to click on for the reason of why it was rejected on the "Wrong Item" condition, no picture, nothing.  Very odd.

 

 

Those helped buy a BD-RE drive for my new laptop, among other things. I know I didn't regret it, though that was a nice one to have go right when it could have gone wrong. I think that and the GB MIcro were ones I was most happy with.

Yep. The best I ever did with AWD was when the TiVs were insanely high for the Wii Sports bundles. I paid like $36 for all of the stuff and with no box I still got $111. *sigh* It almost hurts to think on the past. That was about seven months ago. Man how time flies...

 

i know fuckall about headphones, but this looks like the right thing to me.

 

Monster - DNA Pro Over-The-Ear Headphones  (LN) $166.37  (G) $135.17  (A) $83.18

http://www.amazon.co...s/dp/B00FIYDC1W
$99.95
http://www.brandsmar... Headphones.htm
http://www.ebay.com/...s-/291416582168

 

 

That Acceptable value, though. Don't know if I can do it.
 

Life's too short to listen to bad headphones, so never buy Monster. I don't even wanna buy them to flip. 

 

Picked up Phantom Brave, disc good shape no artwork. Got 2 Surf's Up from GS.com, both look like shit with no artwork. I'd be shocked if I even get (A). GS ugh. 

It's a good thing I have a JFJ easy pro machine as I tend to abuse my discs to hell. Cleans up Wii discs pretty well, but you gotta be careful as the Wii discs can self-destruct if you overdo it. And if you have to sandpaper the disc to get it looking good...that = FAIL.

 

Blu-Rays are fine but they always show resurfacing marks no matter what you do to polish it.

 

I've done a TON of fubar 360 discs and pulled them out of oblivion.

That one I'll take a shot on via eBay as I have the eBay guarantee to work from versus dealing directly with the vendor.    That, and shipping would be free directly from Brandsmart, though $8,48 via eBay for two of them.

That was a good ROI if you had $111 come out of $36.

 

I picked up a pair of those headphones to send to Amazon, as eBay will cover stuff that's not new, plus I doubt anyone will get them from AWD or third-party Amazon sellers.  Keeps them out of the public that way. ;)

 

I keep all of my discs looking pretty, so it's this stuff from GS is a bit of an eyesore. I did make sure to test everything since the PSP issue with "severe damage", so this rejected one was a bit of a surprise.

I like dealing with DS and 3DS games for the trade-ins. I'm one of those crazy people who has gone mostly digital at this point. When I did have a big collection of games I mainly only bought new because I was pretty OCD about the "shape" of my games. I could always tell when a disc was re-surfaced.

 

That's pretty sweet you have one of those machines though...as we all know with GS stuff it probably comes in real handy. I can understand some games like Surf's Up (which was probably mostly played by kids) being beaten to death but when it's something more adult based and it's beat the hell, I'm all like what do people do with their games? I picture the clerks at GS rubbing them on the floor before putting them away or on the shelf.

 

I guess I was always worried the game wouldn't play if it was too beat up.

It's an obscure way to find it, though searching for "Monster 128586 UPC" brought up these sites:

http://www.pccanada....m.asp?id=334570

http://www.head-fi.o...-ear-headphones

 

UPC listed of 050644710247 brought up http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B00FIYDC1W/ .

 

I'll take a shot.

 

Only 2 left on the eBay link.

I got that Wii during a Half Price Books coupon sale...Was surprised the console sat there the whole week of the sale until I grabbed it.

 

I love testing PSP games especially if you have a custom FW PSP: just drag and drop the whole thing to your PC. If it finished, it works, if not, it didn't. Also certain PSP games especially from GS have some clear shells but sometimes they don't work...at all. I had two games that while they would read in different shells, stick any little disc in these two shells...and BAM. Stopped up that drain like a whole roll of Charmin. Plus someone did a ludicrous job in resurfacing them too....The fluids that are used for the JFJ machine are great for clearing up PSP discs too!

They're good, but you do have to learn how to run them as learning curve is like scaling buildings in the old 60's Batman series. Sometimes you just keep buffing the thing until it looks good...or you rot the data layer away.

confident enough to consider it.

the UPC listed in the eBay item specifics brings up the correct product in the Amazon TIV estimator, so as long as that's what we get then should be fine.

Good score if it was from HPB, since I think it probably wouldn't have sat there much longer had you not grabbed it.

 

No PSP = no PSP game testing, which is why I've stayed away from my 0/1 success rate.

Duh, missed that UPC showing up in the eBay item. :dunce:

Replacement Rock Band Pedal up to 28.xx for (A), 38.xx for (LN): http://www.amazon.co...?tag=scurker-20

 

Currently an (A) up for 18.41 plus shipping. Might be something that can be found even cheaper elsewhere. I have been keeping up on the price since I found one at a thrift store a few weeks back.

Thanks for that, I have one laying around that I can trade in. Locked in 2 though since I see those at Goodwill every now and then.

I'll have to take a run by my local Goodwill and see if I can find one there, though I have a VStock near to my house, so that might work to find one as well.  Good pointer about where to find them.

 

Don't bother with GS, as this is what comes up on a search for "Rock Band Pedal":

Received a bunch of stuff from GS, almost all of it was store shipments and most of it has certainly seen better days.   Someone should teach these stores on how to package games, too. 

 

Also, shipment notification from eBay about those Monster headphones, going UPS, so should have those by middle of next week.

 

EDIT: Wii Motion Plus back in stock via AWD, this time for $9.99:

Last time GS had one of those, I didn't get one for some stupid reason.  Time for more disappointment.

I've only had one item that arrived on the 5th graded out today, as Acceptable, plus one more that is still processing received on the 5th.  There's five of my items that arrived between the 3rd and the 5th that weren't in the processing stages, though all of them are showing as delivered.

If you mean that you never got the email containing the coupon, then you can check your Messages on Kongregate after claiming the coupon, copy the URL to resend the coupon, and paste the URL while removing the "resend" part at the very end before hitting Enter.

Takes them two weeks to grade all this shit to only downgrade it to "Acceptable" because of "Missing Manual".

Dropped off a bunch at UPS.  Then went down to Sheetz to get a couple dogz and realized I had one more in the trunk.  Went back and dropped it off right as it starting downpouring.

 

Hopefully I'll be rolling in credit in about 8 days.
