    Section 2:  Item Conditions

    Regarding the items sold by Blasted Machines Tech Shop via this Web site...  Conditions are denoted on item pages, generally in the form of "completeness, cosmetic condition."  Completeness is defined as how close an item is to its original packaging, as follows:

    Cart (cartridge)/disc only = Item is only the game, with no box/case, manuals, or other paperwork included.

    Box/case only = Item is only the box/case, with no game, manuals, or other paperwork included.

    Manual only = Item is only the manual, with no game, box/case, or other paperwork included.

    Cart/disc + box/case = Item has its original box/case, but no manuals or other paperwork.

    Cart/disc + manual = Item has its original manual, but no box/case or other paperwork.

    Cart/disc + box/case + manual = Item has its original box/case and manual, but is not complete due to it missing a significant piece of other paperwork (such as a map or game-specific poster).

    Complete = Item is complete with its original box/case, manual(s), and all other significant paperwork (such as maps and game-specific posters).  Consumer precautions pamphlets and advertisements may not be included.

    100% complete = Item is totally complete, with everything it originally came with when it was brand-new except the factory sealing (i.e. plastic wrap).

    Factory-sealed = Item is factory-sealed and is unable to be opened without removing such seal.

    Cosmetic conditions are defined as follows:

    S = A factory-sealed game.  If not used in conjunction with B or C, assume the game looks fresh from a store shelf.

    A = A game with high visual appeal, usually in near-mint to mint condition.  For cartridge-based games, this entails a cartridge with no rips in the label (and no more than two or three small nicks in the label), stains, discolorations, writing, or sticker residue.  For disc-based games, this entails discs with no or very few light scratches, and no writing or stickers.  Boxes, cases, and manuals will also generally be visually appealing, with no cracks in cases or creases in boxes and manuals (though boxes may show some corner wear), and no stains, sticker residue, or writing.  Games receiving an A grade are generally deemed collector quality.

    B = A game in excellent condition, not quite mint, but with no major cosmetic flaws.  Cartridge-based games will show signs of use, perhaps a bit less shine, or small amounts of writing or non-metallic sticker residue that does not cover any part of the label.  Disc-based games will show a few light semi-visible scratches on the discs, but no writing or sticker residue.  Boxes and manuals may show a couple small creases, but no writing or sticker residue will be present.  Cases may have some scuffing, minor sticker residue, or small cracks (not all the way through the case).  Games receiving a B grade are generally deemed playable collector quality.

    C = A game in fine to very fine condition, usually exhibiting several cosmetic flaws.  Cartridge-based games may show rips in the label, toning of cartridge plastic, or writing or stickers on the label, in addition to signs of moderate to heavy general use.  Disc-based games will show significant light to moderate scratches (not affecting gameplay), or may show writing or sticker residue on the discs.  Boxes and manuals may show significant creases, stickers, writing, staining, or rips.  Cases may show several cracks (potentially through the case entirely), severe sticker residue, or significant amounts of writing.  Games receiving a C grade will work, but are usually deemed player's copies.  Virtually any game less than C condition will not be sold/traded here, unless special extenuating circumstances permit (i.e. very rare games).

    Section 3:  Price Matching

    Blasted Machines Tech Shop will match the price of any online competitor for an identical item to that which we sell.  In addition to this, we will give you an extra five percent (5%) of the difference.  To price match, simply use the "Contact Us" form and state the following information:

    2.  The price at which you found said item elsewhere.

    3.  A URL link to the item showing the price you wish to match.

    Blasted Machines Tech Shop will then respond with a coupon code good for that specific item for two (2) days from the date of the response.  Blasted Machines Tech Shop will not honor prices posted at online auction sites, nor will we match prices posted by sellers in a third-party marketplace (such as Amazon), nor will we match prices posted at sites lacking credibility.
