I’ve had good luck when Pokémon games are shipped from their Texas warehouse, and terrible luck when shipped from a store.

All my games came in 1 package from the texas warehouse

I got plenty of games already and won't be getting a new system soon so I didn't get anything during the holiday sale. But I did get $100 gift card on sale at Dollar General.

I've been mainly using my monthly $5 reward on PSN cards. Really wish you could use the reward for that or a membership renewal online though.

For once GameStop didn’t disappoint. Everything from the B1G1 showed up complete and in good condition. Kingdoms of Amalur was even brand new and sealed.

Last night during the B1G1 I grabbed:

Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive (nsw)
Ghost of Tsushima (ps4)
Trials of Mana (ps4)
Granblue Fantasy Versus (ps4)
Maid of Sker (ps4)
Kingdom of Amalur re-reckoning (ps4)

$102 shipped / avg $17 per title. Not bad. Everything has shipped except for Granblue and Tsushima. Fingers crossed. Been burned on these deals in the past.

Just in case any one cares, the Fortnite switch is available for shipping.  I saw it yesterday but figured it would be sold out by now but they still seem to be available.  Used my $5 monthly, $15 and $25 online certs to bring the price down, basically pays for tax.

 

Does anyone know or can confirm it's a V2 version with the better battery life?

I got 2 copies each of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl because of the B2G2 and all 4 games i got are bootlegs. Do they not check them before shipment? 2 of them are obvious by the sticker and the pother 2 are obvious by looking at the back of the cartridge. Id hope they would get better at this but i guess they dont get enough returns to care

This is very common. My rate of fake Pokemon DS games from GS is around 30-40%. When the older GB/GBA games are in stock, you have a much better chance at getting authentic copies.

I received 11 games and all had cases. Dreams do come true.

 

I ordered Metroid Prime Hunters 3 times this summer, and got the First Hunt demo each time. With their turnover, they'll hire anybody, and they're not trained to spot fakes. Little Jimmy isn't going to notice a bootleg as long as it still plays, so the return rate is probably pretty low. 

 

Also, they probably hate their job/life, so whenever I get a soundtrack or bonus DVD instead of a game disc, I just imagine the employee looking at it, saying " Fuck this guy" and shipping it anyway.

I had that same issue with Life is Strange. There are some titles that you just can't risk buying from gamestop sight-unseen it seems. With a demo like you're talking about, that means that someone missed it at least twice -- taking in the trade and shipping it at least, possibly a lot more along the way. It's not like someone took the game in as the wrong title; they took something in that they shouldn't be taking at all.

 

Silver lining? At least you didn't get empty cases.

It’s the V2 with better battery life. Of note here: you used online coupons and THEY WORKED? This is unheard of

As mentioned, Quests seem to be delayed or not tracking. 

 

Sniper Elite - Kills haven't registered

Hot Shot Racing - hasn't registered he log in

 

 

As for the GwG: Saints Row Gat Out of Hell - I originally downloaded it to my 360 and I had no issues dling to the X1 just now. Even started the game with no issues.

 

 

Dang, Sorry, wrong thread.

What's a good cheap console I can get. Hoping for something along the lines of the PS Classic that already has games loaded onto it. Don't want to spend more than $50. Everybody I've seen on FB/Craiglist is hiking the prices up on their stuff since it's almost christmas time.

Wow, a couple of Switch Pokemon games I ordered didn't even have the dignity of a blank case, they were just in those shitty yellow paper CD holders.

Question -- I ordered some games during the B1G1 deal, and they should be arriving this week...

 

I've noticed people saying that even with "free" shipping, the shipping cost was being factored into return values.  If I get a copy I'm unhappy with, how do I avoid getting $6 taken out of my refund?

Take it to a store and explain what happened and the employee, unless they're a complete asshat, will likely just do the return if you can show the price you paid via an email receipt or online order receipt. I had an item with a price of -$5.99 (which was the shipping), told the employee and they refunded me the actual price I paid without any hassle.

I have received 14/15 games and 13 of those came complete. Only thing that hasn't shipped yet is Yoshi which seems to have been the free one of a b2g1 free.

I haven't nor have I gotten the 30$ coin from 300$ purchase.  I know going in to just not expect such promos to actually work and if by some miracle they do then it's a nice surprise. 

 

No. We probably got screwed. 

Yep I would assume that.

Any word on Immortals Fenyx Rising being G2L? I wouldn't mind giving it a shot for a couple days, and convert some coupons/points into credit.

Got 23/46 games so far from B1G1, so good! Only one was kinda eh and that was a European copy of Links Awakening but I’ll probably just sell it instead of keeping it anyway.

They were busy packing orders to ship out and there was a big pile of stuff. The manager said "I don't want to be here when the Fedex guy gets here". Now I understand why they don't have accurate tracking, because the Fedex guy just loads all the packages without scanning them when he picks them up. It's too much work for him/her to scan over 100 packages before they leave the store.


I received a number of packages yesterday via FedEx that never showed an initial scan, you must be right. Just pending one order now. Was nice to hop on the B1G1, now just waiting for a good trade bump.

Got my b1g1 order in yesterday, all complete. The online system never updated anything about it's shipping status. It just showed up. I did not have any of that -$5.99 crap on the receipt either.

GameStop removed my Demon's Souls pre-order. I was waiting to pick it up after I got my ps5, which finally arrived yesterday. I had put down $35 on it. Now it's not showing up anywhere in my email or app. What a bunch of scam artists.

Anyone have this happen to them. Will I be able to get my money back?
