Why didn't you just pay his advertised Priority shipping! HA!
Based on what the OP is saying there's too much emphasis of the seller saying testing afterwards is NOT allowed, as if they are hiding something. Would make me feel uncomfortable too. So one is welcome to play it before a bid, but it's instantly moved to a place with no heat and power after the auction so no testing? Sounds fishy. If I'm selling a game, a working game, I don't bother moving it and making it unavailable while the bidding is going on, and on this listing bids started on the 16th and were made throughout the auction. Yes, some buyers can be nit picky, and no one should use the phrase "100%" or "Perfect" on used items. I've had nit picky buyers want to get things for less and I just say No, they wasted a trip. Always depends on the situation though. My favorite is when I have something worth what it's worth and lots of interest and someone says "I'll take it" then comes back later and wants to know if I'll know off X amount of money cause they have to drive so far. That's your problem buddy
