Oh dang, I would get PES if I didn't already have FIFA 18.

Ordered PvZ2 and Knack 2. Here’s hoping they aren’t paper codes for me. Happens every day it seems though.

Thanks for the heads up, picking up MvCI, even if the game is dead.

I could go for a cheap movie rental from Redbox this weekend, but they haven't sent out any new codes.

Pro-tip: if you're cheap like I am, public libraries offer free Blu-Ray and DVD rentals that are even cheaper than Redbox. I go there and get 6 at a time!

Pro-pro-tip: if you go to public libraries, don't sit down. They are one of the biggest places for bed bug infestations.

Pro-pro-pro-tip: burn your clothes immediately after leaving a public library.

Standing in front of public library, butt naked, with your clothes burning on the side - memorable. Go to the public library just for this, screw books / DVD / Blu-rays.

Hey, my tax dollars pay for the place. I should be able to do whatever the hell I want next to the book return box.

Well, I’m not going to lie, I bought two games to flip to GS for GoW. Sadly, just got denied saying they are told to refuse Redbox copies. Serves me right I guess,

Got another one you could go to? Did you take it out of the Redbox case?

None that I can go to tonight and busy till Monday. And yes I put them in generic cases.

Edit: I’ll try to take the stickers off and go in again next week. I’ll just take the hit on the TIV drop.

Don’t blame yourself at all. Many GS employees — probably most — take them, no problem.

All the ones in my area do it, they even ask me what they're going for so they can go by themselves. Don't feel bad flipping redbox games. Most of these have been the same price or close to it at some point or another. Nobody's buying plants vs zombies to keep at 10 bucks when it can be had on EA Access or for $15 new at Best Buy with GCU.

Use a hairdryer (or heat gun) to remove the stickers without hating life for an hour.  Be mindful to not scrape off (too much) of the artwork underneath, it comes off so easily on PS4 discs.  Fortunately, the circular center artwork holds no data, so it's ok, just ugly.

Got my first bad purchase. MvC:I was just the center sticker. I'll contact support in the morning and maybe try again at the Redbox inside of a Walgreens.

PES 2018 not a good deal?

It is a great deal for a fantastic game. But I wish it came with the case and insert.

Got my first paper disc on mvc. Also made the mistake of pulling up mvc3 gs trade in value when it bought 5 copies... at least I still make a buck or two profit, and can return the paper disc..
