What do you do with your games when you’ve beaten them or you upgrade to a different console? In the past, I’ve found myself making my way up to the game shop to get their trade-in value or sometimes have my older games turned away completely. Then there’s eBay, where I’ve been known to take my chances on it selling at all. But now I’ve found a new way to sell old games. Some ex-eBay employees have harnessed their knowledge about online markets and user experience into Glyde, a site made specifically for buying and selling things like your games.

Glyde- Simply buy and sell your games, iPads, iPhones and more

Sell Old Games Online

Glyde’s selling process is a little different from what I’m used to. To sell your old video games, you just have to start typing in the name of a game, select it when Glyde finds it for you, and click the Sell button. Then you tell Glyde the condition of your game and it will auto-set the market price for you. You can raise or lower the price and then list the item. Although you have to fill out some required information for your first listing, the process is a lot faster and easier than most sites.

To review this site, I figured the best thing to do would be to create an account and start selling. In a test scenario where I might sell the Halo 2 XBOX game in Excellent condition gave me a suggested selling price of $2.25. After the $0.27 transaction fee and $1.25 mailer cost, the total money made from the sale comes out to $0.73. My first thought was that this seems like a pretty low price to let go of my game for. Despite it being an older game, I found it to be a bit low compared to other online shopping sources, as well. I next checked out how much I’d get for Halo Reach, which fell a lot more in line with the average selling price on other sites at $11.51 after fees.

The thing that I found most appealing about the selling process is the shipping procedure. Once someone has purchased your game, Glyde sends you a pre-addressed mailing envelope to ship your game in. All you have to do is pop it back in the mail and you’re done. This is a vast convenience over the way I have to ship things I sell elsewhere, which usually includes a lunch hour wasted at the post office.

Buy and Sell Anything Online

While Glyde may be well-suited for selling old games, you can buy, too, and they don’t stop at just games. I found the iPad, iPhone, Nook, Kindle, and even books. The selling process is pretty similar throughout, but the questions displayed on the selling page are geared towards what you’re selling. When selling an iPhone, for example, you’re asked about if it works and the amount of scratches on it. With a game, you’re asked more generally about the condition of the game.

Buying is pretty straight forward, but the feature that stands out is that Glyde shows you the item that is closest and cheapest for your search. This seems like it would be a no-brainer, but sadly, eBay, Amazon, and Google don’t default to such a listing. In addition, I like that the packaging isn’t suspect to the whim of the seller. You can pretty well expect your item to be delivered in what Glyde deems adequate packaging.

Conclusions

Where Glyde may occasionally fall short in seller earnings on a sale, it doubles up on convenience and ease of use over all. The shipping system stands out in a way that promises to quietly eliminate the usual shipping concerns most buyers and sellers face on other platforms. Personally, I will definitely look to Glyde when it comes time to sell games or some of the books I have sitting around here.

Although the preceding was a sponsored review, as always I strive to provide an honest opinion of the product or site reviewed.

So you got a screaming new Xbox 360 over the holidays, finally! Maybe you got a game or two with the system, but you’re of course itching for something new and exciting to play. Luckily for you, the Xbox 360 has been out for over three years and you’ve got plenty of low cost options! Check out our recommendation for the best games to snap up for cheap.

Dark Sector
Dark SectorThis game is relatively unknown, but really is a diamond in the rough. Amazing graphics, pulse-pounding gameplay, and a great experience await you for under $10! There is a long single player campaign that is sure to keep you occupied for many nights, and who wouldn’t want to remove enemy body parts with a flying disc under your control?
Perfect Dark Zero
Perfect Dark ZeroNintendo 64 aficionados will recognize the name Perfect Dark and either instantly get excited or make a face of disgust. Perfect Dark was rather innovative as far as gameplay on N64 was concerned, but ended up being a rather tedious game to play at the time. Launched with hugely positive reviews, the new adaptation of Perfect Dark features a stunning array of weapons and an involved story line that will keep you glued to the controller.
Project Gotham Racing 4
Project Gotham Racing 4Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you racing enthusiasts. Now this isn’t a hardcore simulation like the Forza series, but you won’t feel like you’re playing an 80’s arcade game. The graphics and variety of cars are stunning and online gameplay is a must with this title.
Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball 2
Dead or Alive 2Ridiculously long title aside, this game is not one that entertains with quality. Clearly you are playing volleyball and there are some other minigames involved. But the true value in this game comes in the high quality models used to render the beautiful female cast of this tribute to male fantasy. Don’t expect something you play for hours every night, but this certainly is worth a spin for periodic entertainment.
Forza Motorsport 2
Forza MotorsportThis game is for the hardcore racer in all of us. The physics are so real that you’ll start to feel like you can pilot your own tincan through the turns at Sebring or Laguna Seca. You have a dizzying array of cars to choose from, but the choices don’t stop there. Play in career or “arcade” mode, play single player or online, customize your car with a variety of parts upgrades and then tune your car with the higher level upgrades. This isn’t like Need for Speed where you adjust “turbo” and “brakes,” you get to adjust everything from tire pressure to suspension stiffness to gearing. This game is guaranteed to occupy your life, and that’s before you get sucked into the world of online racing.

XBox Light Gun Fails On My RCA Big Screen

My wife is not an avid gamer, but she likes her House of the Dead III zombie shoot ’em up. I’m not either, really, but I have an XBox all the same, and when I play, I’d prefer to play on my 52 inch TV rather than the 27 inch. After all, what’s the point of spending the money on a big screen if I’m not going to get the most out of it that I can? When we found out that House of the Dead III was available for XBox, we sought out to buy the game (used on Amazon) and a light gun to shoot with. If my baby wants to shoot some zombies, I’m gonna line ’em up and hand her the gun. Sometimes, though, the gremlins sneak in and ruin it for us.

Light Gun Fails

The first purchase (boring details)
First, I purchased a used light gun on Amazon, through a third party seller. It never showed up. I wish I had seen the Re Sell It’s horrible feedback rating before I purchased. After waiting almost a month and contacting the seller with no response, I let Amazon know that I wished they didn’t let people with that kind of selling reputation sell there. Or maybe have a red flag pop up before I buy. In any case, I filed my claim and moved on.

The second purchase (boring details)
After wasting my time with that one, my wife suggested that we get TWO light guns. This makes sense. Sometimes I don’t know where my head is. Advice noted, I ordered two new Game Elements light guns. This time, I was careful to choose a reputable seller, Classic Game Source Inc.. I don’t know if they respond to customer queries, but that’s because I didn’t have the need to make one. Shipping wasn’t lightning quick, but I had them in a week, which is quick enough.

Remove the Head. Destroy the Brain
Writing this, I’m reminded of Zombie Girl‘s song, GO ZOMBIE, which I am now listening to as I write. In the lyrics, she sings, “Remove the head. Destroy the brain.” That, my friends, is much easier said than done when you’re in the middle of a pack of zombies and your aim is all over the place, despite calibrating the light guns. My best guess is that my TV is simply not responsive to the light gun as it should be. We moved the whole shabang into the other room and played on the 27 inch, where zombies did, indeed, fall to the incredible aim and natural zombie-killing instincts my wife was throwing around.

Watch out zombies. We’re armed (and calibrated).
