Exclusive physical release at GS. Some people like to collect limited release games.

Looks like they increased prices of some Wii U consoles, notably the 32GB ones.

So with this generation you are describing someone who actually works full time

Only if you count hours from their jobs seperately.

Yeah it looks like the sale prices are already reverted back to regular preowned prices.

i saw that before I went to a store, but the sale prices are still reflected in store. I just bought a 360 E and it rang up for the correct sale price.

I just played through that Bendy game and it was really fun. Good horror mix of Bioshock and old 30's and 40's cartoons.

I know Mario Kart 8 for Wii U was $14.99, but has gone back to $20. Went ahead and got Super Mario Galaxy and Super Paper Mario for Wii BOGO 1/2 price before that promo ends. $12 for both games isn’t bad, as long as they work...hoping for cases 🤞🏼

Wii games almost always work.  They could be scratched to hell and still work.  I found one with a crack in it that worked.

can confirm. I sometimes buy lots of hundreds of game discs on ebay to run through my resurfacer. Ive had wii games that looked like they were rubbed around on a gravel driveway and they still worked. Wii u games on the other hand will stop working if you look at them funny.

Are there any Xbox 360 exclusives that can't be played on PC or Xbox One? I had planned on buying one to play Tales of Vesperia, but now that that has been remastered, I can't think of any other games that can't otherwise be played on PC or Xbox One.


Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 still one of my favorites, only on X360!

Ninety-Nine Nights! And part 2!
Beautiful Katamari is another.

NBA Baller Beats came with a Basketball that you would dribble to the “beat” using the Kinect while you play! Xbox 360 exclusive!!!

Yes.  Wii U most definitely.  I've had discs that look excellent that wouldn't play.  GC is somewhere in the middle of Wii and Wii U.

 

You should certainly test any Wii games, but the odds of it not playing are fairly small.  I've seen more dirty lasers causing problems than scratched discs.

If GameCube games are buffed they could look perfect but the buffer machine can remove a layer of the disc which renders the GameCube game worthless so definitely check them immediately. I have had games boot up but the get a disc read error after 5-10 minutes so definitely play for a little bit too.

Yeah, I ordered Fire Emblem Path of Radiance and the game worked until you got to a battle, then the disc would not read. Easily returned it to a store.

Can I ask what kind of resurfacer you have? How much was it, and do you think it's a good investment?

For this sale I picked up Oregon Trail (CIB) and Ju-On (disc only) for Wii, in-store. and Metal Slug 7, Nostalgia, Resident Evil, Rune Factory 3, Mega Man ZX Advent, and Dragon Ball: Attack of the Saiyans on DS from the website.

 

 

 

I just played through that Bendy game and it was really fun. Good horror mix of Bioshock and old 30's and 40's cartoons.

Although I did pick up some of the Bioshock vibes, I thought the game was so awful I didn't get more than 2 or 3 hours in. There's no color, no music, and the voice acting is god awful.  Plus, voice-recorder memos and switch-flipping puzzles are beyond outdated. I found it boring and uninspired.

Maybe! It's been in stock for a while now. Maybe the scalpers are celebrating the holiday today.

Its in stock and now I don't know if I will like it or not. Guess I have to go look up some videos on it.

when I redeemed the Gold edition/Season pass code it redeemed the full game on XBOX (Digital copy and Season pass content) 

this sometimes happens with the first run of ubisoft gold edition games.

This isn't exactly true. Far Cry 5 gold edition digital code only gave the season pass.

I bought it day one.
