Four Tips for Buying Used Video Games

Buying used video games can be risky since you don’t always know what condition your game will be in when you get it home, but it’s also one of the most affordable ways to pick up the newest games when you want them. There’s nothing quite as enjoyable as knowing you picked up an awesome game and got it for half the price your friends bought it for.

The process does come with some questions, however. How do you know when a used game is in good condition? What’s a good deal on a used game? Follow these four tips when picking out used video games Las Vegas to ensure you have a great game-buying experience and that your games will always be in the best condition possible:

Buy Used Games in Person

Buying used games online can be very risky unless you see clear, concise pictures of the discs. It’s generally better to buy used games in person, but if you must buy online, make sure to ask for pictures of the discs. It’s also not a bad idea to request to see images of the covers and inside booklets. If the case itself is in good condition, it’s far more likely that the discs inside will also be in good condition. Gamers who take care of their games also take care of the packaging.

Check Before You Buy

If you’re buying from an in-person retailer, make sure to check the disc to ensure it’s not extremely scratched and that the disc is actually in place. If the case is sealed, ask to see the physical disc. Most retailers will happily oblige. If you notice that the case is missing any of the paperwork inside, you should also make sure that there are no digital codes inside that may need to be entered.

Similar to when purchasing online, compare the disc’s condition with the condition of the case. If either look especially mangled, you might want to rethink your decision to buy that game. In such a case, ask the retailer if they have any different copies or are anticipating getting any.

Check for New Releases ASAP

When a new game comes out, there’s always that rush of gamers picking up the latest and greatest, playing through it and then trading it back in to pick up the newest latest and greatest a week later. Gamers tend to play through games quick. When a new game comes out that you really want, start looking for a used copy as soon as you can. Picking up a gently-used used copy will give you a copy that’s far less likely to have issues. This also, of course, nets you the games you want as quickly as possible. It’s kind of win-win.

Compare Prices

Before you buy used video games Las Vegas, check to make sure the new versions aren’t on sale anywhere else. This may sound like a no-brainer, but games frequently go on sale at different times at different retailers, so it pays to do a bit of research before committing to a used copy. Make sure to also check for special package deals and limited time offers. Many new games are being released with unique promotions that make make buying the new versions worthwhile depending on your needs.

Picking up used games can save you a lot of money in the long run, especially if you have multiple console systems and don’t want to spend an arm and a leg every time a new game is released. Follow the above tips when buying used to ensure your games are playable and in great condition.

Best Year End Games – Video Game Stores Las Vegas

Fall is here folks, and that means game companies will be churning out even more games from now until the holidays. Things are finally cooling off here in Las Vegas and we’re looking forward to a few of the years final big titles available on the newest generation of consoles.

Bayonetta 2 looks insane and beautiful, and with the power the newest generation of consoles is packing, I’m looking forward to the button-mashing madness that is ahead. Some fans of the original are worried this sequel won’t live up to its predecessor, but Platinum Games has a solid track record, which leaves little room for doubt that the swordplay and fluidity will be anything less than stellar.

Love swords? Us too, and that’s only the first reason why I can’t wait to play Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. In case you missed it, this game will be running a little thing called the Nemesis system. Instead of playing against nameless hoards of Orcs and Uruk captains like in the previous Lord of the Rings games, these baddies have names and memories and I imagine a particularly foul odor. Basically, if an Orc kills you, it will remember it, and having killed you, it will be stronger. Better still, even if you kill an enemy, they don’t stay dead. What? You thought that you were the only one allowed to come back from the grave having learned from your mistakes? Fool of a Took!

Next time you hear someone say, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” tell that person to shut up and play The Last of Us on the PS4. It’s been remastered with 1080p resolution plus a few minor tweaks. 2013s Game of the Year just got its second wind, and it looks gorgeous. If you haven’t played this yet, now’s your chance, and even if you have played it, you should probably play it again. Video game storytelling doesn’t get much better than this. Hey Naughty Dog, take my money now!

If swords and survival aren’t your thing, you still have a horse in the race. Wii U has the newest iteration of Super Smash Bros. Honestly, it doesn’t matter how old you are, these games are fun. Nintendo’s flagship fighting game has and continues to be one of the most solid games for their systems. Besides being next-gen quality pretty and boasting new characters—I call dibs on Mega Man—Wii U’s Super Smash Bros. will be making some improvements to the gameplay to make it more competitive.

Okay, at some point, whether your facing down an over-powered boss in Bayonetta 2, playing Smash Bros with your spastic cousin, or re-killing a particularly resilient Uruk in Shadow of Mordor something bad might happen. Whether it’s a jammed joystick or your system has locked up, come of all the video game stores Las Vegas has, we’re here to help keep you gaming. Bring it in to us and we’ll get you back to gaming like we’ve been doing for the last 25 years.
