Online and B&M. Game only - not with the Wii Speak bundle.

:wii: Animal Crossing: City Folk

http://www.gamestop....roduct_id=72071

Really good price for any first party Nintendo title. Beats all the BF deals on this game (I think).


If ordered online, don't forget to the coupon code "BEMERRY" for 10% off and free shipping (Thanks Got_Wii!).

EDIT:

Amazon has now matched this price..this may be a MSRP drop but yet to be confirmed. BB and Walmart are still holding at $50.

Yes. But you'd be forgiven for thinking otherwise.

Lol. I've seen posts on here about people preordering games and being given a used copy when they go to pick it up in store, so I figured I would ask. I like my games to be in excellent condition with manuals and cases in great condition. Not sure why, just want to take care of my stuff.

Anyone know how much Wii Speak is separately and if it has any uses outside of Animal Crossing? I haven't seen it used except in that commercial where they're playing Animal Crossing.

Not a bad deal, and the WiiSpeak isn't really needed. If this came with the WiiSpeak though, it would own all.

Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

I noticed they dropped Warioland: Shake it to $19.99 as well. Anyone ever play this and have comments?

I'm pretty sure Conduit can use it. Plus, I think Wii Speak itself comes with a simple app just for chatting.

Anyway, if anyone is looking for the Animal Crossing w/ Wii Speak bundle, Newegg currently has it for $29.99 shipped.

I wouldn't say Wii Speak is necessary, but if you're buying the game to specifically play online with a friend/relative, it's worth the extra $10.

Blockbuster has it preowned for $14.99, course, the odds of finding a copy are much more challenging.

Decided to check this game out. Used the Gamestop promo code "BEMERRY" for 10% off the order and free ground shipping. Total came to $19.52, not bad if you ask me.

The WiiSpeak is rumored to be compatible with Monster Hunter 3 in the US.

It's still principally the same game. It's very much a sequel to the DS version.

Wario Land Shake It is pretty fun. Similar to Jungle Beat in that it's an innovative-controls platformer that should be played for score/accomplishments rather than simply to clear levels. I like it almost as much as Alec Baldwin does.

With Wii Speak the game is at $40 on Gamestop's website, but it's sold out. I'd say that's a pretty good deal, considering Wii Speak is $30 normally, so you could basically get Animal Crossing: CF for $10.

I've received opened/dusty/fingerprinted "new" games from Gamestop.com before, it's a bit of a crapshoot sadly...

Hm. Every game I've ordered online has come sealed and unblemished. Granted, in-store is a crapshoot, but online I've never gotten anything but a sealed, NEW game.

Is this the new MSRP? If so, BB might change it to $20 and there is a $5 off RZ coupon up.

If not, you can try to PM it and still use the coupon but I doubt that it will work.

If you have a USB headset, you can just use that. If you don't, or do but don't want to be tethered:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16878190050

The bundle is $30 on Newegg (and has been around that price for awhile). One of the reviews on Newegg is pretty sad, oh man, you're forced to have to read to your 4 year old because she can't read yet, that's the worst thing possible.
