1) Products

For certain games, the publisher/developer only printed a limited copy of a games or games. Because we want everyone to enjoy these games, we need to make sure we have a type of “crowd control” when buying games. So this means that certain games, customers can only order one (1) copy of the game per customer, per address (billing and shipping). If we detect that more than one copy of the game is being sent to the same customer, we will cancel your order and refund your money. You will have to go through the order process again, following these rules. If a customer is caught doing this more than once, you could be temporary or permanently banned from using the store. This also protects the publisher/developer by curbing scalpers and the likes for buying up all the games and selling them for a much higher price on other websites (like eBay). We are sorry for any inconveniences. If you’re wanting to buy more than one copy, please contact the publisher/developer directly.

We purchase all our stock directly from the game or item’s publisher.

A full list can be found on our Games We Offer page!

We strive to stock newly developed games for any and every console. If we do not carry a title you are interested in purchasing please let us know. We are constantly growing our inventory and customer input helps us have a better idea of what to add next

Unless the game or item is out of print we will be restock the item as soon as possible. So just keep an eye out. We will update our blog (seen on the home page), Facebook, and Twitterwhen we get new stock!

We understand that in the age of eBay and the likes that certain people will buy up games and resell them at a higher price claiming rarity when a lot of times this isn’t the case. So, to combat that, we have placed a limit of two (2) copies of any certain game per customer, per address (billing and shipping). If we detect that more than two copies of a game is being sent to the same customer, we will cancel your order and refund your money. You will have to go through the order process again, following these rules. If a customer is caught doing this more than once, you could be temporary or permanently banned from using the store. For some games, you can only buy 1 copy. Please see the below FAQ. Those will be clearly marked.

3) Store

The orange swirl, based from our official logo, is our watermark. We watermark our products to try to curb scalpers and other “not-nice people” from taking our high quality photos and using them for their gain. We want to protect the developers and publishers of these awesome retro indie games. We made sure that the watermark is clear enough to not obstruct the photo. Don’t worry, they will not appear this way when they arrive at your door!
