I just passed by the EB Games near where I work to buy Skate 2 and I saw all those titles for 9.99$ ! And the best part is that they are all brand new !

Alone in the dark (xbox 360) 9.99$ NEW !
The Club (xbox 360) 9.99$ NEW !
Universe at War: Earth Assault 9.99$ NEW !


Someone in the comments added this:

Condemned Criminal Origins (xbox 360) 6.99 (is it new or old ?)

Those might not be the hottest games in the world right now but can you beat this price for a new game that used to be 60$ when it came out ?
I also went to my local EB Games to see if all this wasnt a fluke and sure enough they were all there and they were the same price.

I did rent the Club when it came out, I liked it but at 60$ there was no way I was going to buy it. That game actually has a 76% metacritic score...
Universe at War got a 66% and Alone in the Dark got a 58% on the same site.

In his defense, no where in that thread are the games he has mentioned, in either the title or the OP.

in addition to his defense, if you walk into that thread and start reading comments your brain might shut down and cease to exist, when did CAG go to hell with all these stupid posters?

1. Do a search first.
2. They're $9.89, not $9.99.

That's why I rarely start threads, that other one only had in the title guitar hero and rockband. Come on and cut me some slack here !!!
You might also want to note that I got a PM from someone to tell me that the deal was not valid in the state of Virginia... Last time I checked this was a Canadian forum !

I for one have never even bothered clicking on that thread till you posted this link. Those music games are $10 overpriced IMO, and even if they were free I wouldn't want them as they'd be a waste of my space :roll:

This thread is completely legit and sending him to a thread with a totally opposite title and OP is ludicrous. The guy is informing the greater majority of a deal that some people may not have seen (because I sure didn't!). Like he said, cut him some slack. Good job on posting the deal dude.

I also applaud your post, thank you. Multiple thread worries shouldn't be the primary concern of folks here. I too didn't scour the pages upon pages of comments on games I don't care about.

Also, charleytony if you like you could add Condemned 1 for 360 to your post. It is 6.99 at EB - craziness! It is a pretty cool game if you like marauding the sewers beating psychotic hobos with pipes whilst searching for mutilated pigeons.
And who wouldn't like that shit?

I stumbled across some new deals at EB today and thought I would pass the information on (despite the crazy RFD thread):
1) The Club PS3 is now $9.89 New as well.
2) Quake Wars Enemy Territory (both PS3 and 360) is now 9.89 New

And from the RFD thread:
NHL 2k8 (PS3) is 4.89 New and Used (weird I know).
Also, I found the nyko frontman wireless guitar (ps3) for $15.00 and Guitar Hero Aerosmith for 4.99 (ps3 used).

Is this the Nyko pictured below with GH/RB compatibility and the pink faceplate?

Posted Image

If so, WOW, $15. I remember buying it when it came out for $60. It's a pretty good guitar, more similar to the GH guitars than the RB style.

Word of advice if anyone buys it: the included USB charge cable is long but fricking useless, it doesn't seem charge my guitar or even work as a USB cable at all :-?

Other than that, great deal!

PS3 blacksite, superstar tennis, dark sector, wii alone after dark

probably no trade in value for those, so safe from the hoarders.

hmm no one will want them to play either, alone dark - Critic Score 3.9

I'm trying to understand your post. You're saying Alone IN THE Dark for the Wii is 9.89$ too?

I'll get it at that price, just to see for myself how bad it really is.

anything under 10$ is almost an automatic buy for me. Its really close to the price or a rental !
Since you get to keep it or can give it to a friend (or enemy if its that bad) it's basically a no brainer !

I actually thought that Haze was an alright game, plus you can play multiplayer with bots, so that is an added bonus.


Also Alone in the Dark for 360 went back up and also Guitar Hero Aerosmith went back up. Those were the new copies that went up, don't know about the used copies though.

Bencher you should check with your local EB, they may still have the cheaper prices. It seems the prices aren't universal at EB

Wii version is horrid. The PS2 version is better then the Wii, but worse then the PC/360. But the PC/360's was given scores of like 40. The PS3 version got scored of like 70s.

Which is why it doesn't suck, Eden Games learned what went horribly wrong the first time around, and fixed most of it. Sadly, the game still has cheesy dialogue, a wonky plot, and a ugh-worthy ending. But still, the game does have a lot of very interesting concepts, most of them well done.

I'm sure Phil Harrison had some part in making sure the PS3 version wasn't horrid.:lol:
