$27.99 used off gamestops website (worth it)? I've never ordered a used game off the website before, and it isn't in any stores near me, was wondering how that works.

Original box and booklet i would prefer what do you think the chances are of that? and if its all scratched up can I return it in the local store or what?

thanks for the help.

If you like shooters Ikaruga is worth any price. It's one of the best shooters ever made, period.

Yes so I've heard and I love Shoot em ups,
I was kinda wondering more about how ordering from GS website works with used games?

Fantastic shooter and that's a good price on it. Downside is you don't know exactly what you're getting. If you want more specifics on what you get and the condition of it all, you'll need to buy from Amazon or eBay where you can find out what condition everything is in.

I guess thats true but i have some store credit at GS so If i ordered it and it was in crappy condition do you think they would take it back at my local store?
If so I'm totally getting it.

Doubt it, Gamestop is always looking to make a buck and not likely to easily take something back.

Boom.

I just don't know if they would or not. I know you could probably return it to the online store, but I don't normally purchase used games unless I do it in store where I can see the disc. That's just me.

@Westerhive
As if they don't have a return policy for defective games. That's ridiculous.

Items may be returned by taking them to a GameStop store location in the United States. Items returned to a GameStop store location must be accompanied by the original packing list. Store return policies may vary and are subject to manager approval.

Check with your store first to see what their policies are, but if the policies at your local store do not cover this, you can always return it online.

Not to mention it says under each pre-owned item that it is "guaranteed to work." In my experience, this guarantee has always been reliable, and if it weren't, they'd be legally responsible for making false claims.

I bought some used games there that haven't worked before, but I think I'm goin go ask my local store tomorrow after class and see what they say, who knows maybe they can have it shipped from another store to them so I can see the disc and stuff.

Well, the point was that if you advertise "guaranteed to work" and it does not in fact work, you would be legally responsible to remedy the situation, not that they are vendors of perfect used games. That sounds like a good plan though. The game is worth the effort. Without a doubt one of the best shooters ever, and if you are a fan of the genre at all, it's one of those games you have to play just so you know what everyone else is going on about.

Ikaruga... Is that one of those brutally challenging shmups? If so, that's great! :3

Well, there are difficulty settings, so it's not necessarily brutal always... but even on easiest settings I can't beat level four out of five... even with a friend. :(

Fun regardless.

i recently bought it used at my gamestop for $40, and don't regret it a bit, so i'd say your getting it for that price is a steal.

Buying Ikaruga: If you're a Shmup fan or a torture gamer (a person that loves brutally hard games, kinda like me), then it's totally worth it.

Buying Ikaruga on The GS Website: Very iffy. I'd rather get it off of Amazon/eBay because GS is a little iffy on some things.

And auction sites aren't iffy...? I mean, you're trusting a completely random user (sure, there's feedback ratings, but it's really just a general gauge of trustworthiness, not a guarantee of any sort) instead of a major corporation that has much more legal responsibility. Or did you mean something else? Just curious.

I must say I prefer auction sites, too, though, just for different reasons. You tend to get better prices on Ebay, though the price of Ikaruga seems unlikely to be much lower than this.

That is y i'm more inclined to order from GS. I've ordered new games from their website just not a used game ever.So I'm a little hesitant.

that and having to pay shipping... I've got $44 store credit and I would still get the 10% off though.... so like $2.80 off that might cover shipping.

Well I just placed my order on GS website. $4.99 for shipping and I saved $2.80 with my edge card.
Hopefully when it arrives in the next week or so I will be pleasantly surprised to see its in great shape and in the original box with instruction booklet. (hopefully).
