Damn $30 is a really good deal for this game. If I didn't already have it I would get it now.

Someone reported that Mad World would be $29.99 new at Gamestop now. It shows $49.99 new on the website but the used version is $26.99.

Also Madworld $41.97

It sounds like Mad World is going to be $29.99 as well (like Gamestop), they have a banner on Amazon that says both games are getting price drops, I doubt the final price drop is $41.97.

Yeah, I suspect these are both going $30. Not sure when Mad World is going to drop, though.

$19.99 is the sweet spot for Overkill. Can't wait!

bought at 50. fun game. worth it? not really. its like 4-5 hours. No intention of going back to unlock shiz really.

I would say 30 is worth it though. Funny ass story.

In for Overkill; as infrequently as I touch the Wii, I couldn't justify paying $50, but I can't pass it up for just under $27 after the ECA discount.

Thanks OP!

If this is going to drop to $30.. I'm going to wait just a little bit more. This way when it does retail for $29.99, Amazon will typically have it for anywhere between $24.99-$27.99.. THEN we use the ECA membership to make it just a little bit better :)

House of the Dead Overkill is easily the best rail shooter I've ever played. It's definitely worth the $30.

Yeah, this seems like a better deal than it is because MSRP is $50, don't forget.

Not ripping on the OP, still the best deal around, but i can wait. It's not like the game sold so well that it's going to stay at MSRP for much longer.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Yeah, same here. I had a $10 off promotion code left over from a trade-in promo and this was the only game I didn't have that interested me. I had been tempted so many times to get it for ~35, but at $20 ($15 with my remaining Amazon credit) it's a definite deal.

I was in the same boat, but I had a $20 off code. I had been holding off using it in hopes that either this or Mad World would hit $30.

I'm not guessing that any Karaoke Revolution games support the Lips mics do they? And their aren't any plans too? A search pretty much confirmed that, but nothing recent popped up.

Of course, if I don't want the mics, I'm probably not paying $30, but. . .

Just pulled the trigger on Madworld. $26.97 shipped with ECA discount. :)

I owned House of the Dead games on Dreamcast and Xbox. They both felt exactly the same. Is Overkill worth trying? Is it just the same game again?

How long is the "limited" time? I'm still waiting for my $20 bonus from the Mar/Apr trade-in offer and would use it on either one of these games...

These games have received good reviews but are misplaced on the Wii. That's stating the obvious, but lowering the prices might help some, but not enough.

I saw the little banner for MadWorld and HotD:OK and it says it's a limited time price drop..and I think it say until May 30..

We'll see. Maybe I will get both of these with the ECA. :shrug: I'm already getting Punch-Out!! this week..
