Looks to be a price match towards Gamestop's Power Sale

Eligible for Free Super Saver Shipping and Prime
This is a good deal for those who like me don't have the game in their area during the sale.

That's a nice price for a very good game. Lots of reading, but it's rather well written.

I'd be all over this if I hadn't already picked it up. Nice find, OP!

I picked it up at Gamestop today... the sneaks didn't have it in with the Power Saver games... still had it up on the DS rack at full price. But it still rang up at the sale price...

Worth every cent. Among it's visual novel companions on the DS, Hotel Dusk and the Ace Attorney series, it is arguably the greatest. It is certainly the darkest and most sophisticated of the bunch, and the translation is near flawless. Wait until you get your first ending, likely a bad one, and should you be playing at the proper time (Late at night, no lights, all that jazz) you'll likely be scared sh!tless.

Times like this make me wish I didn't have a staggering backlog. I could buy this but I'd likely never get around to playing it. At least not multiple times.

I have a staggering backlog, too, and I can wholeheartedly say that it was worth putting this at the front of the line. Once you get started, the replays come naturally -- and in replays you have the ability to zoom through text that you've read previously (you'll get stopped when you reach new text), which really helps.

Of course, it's your call... but 999 is one of a very few games that I still think about, a month or two after finishing it.

Amen. So true. 450+ game backlog (literally), so this would get played right about 2020. ;)

Just got my copy off the porch along with crackdown 2 (yeah yeah yeah I know) and even with a "staggering backlog" I'm still going to support interesting games such as this even though I'm a cag.

I'm going to assume/hope that is hyperbole.

Edit: It would seem I need to add $0.01 to get free shipping. Seriously...

Usually when this happens, I just find a cheap book or something with Super Saver shipping.

Not even a little bit of an exaggeration, unfortunately.

Current count by system (games I have, but have yet to open/play/or play to completion):

360 (157)
Wii (43)
PS3 (9)
XBOX (76)
Gamecube (29)
PS2 (65)
PS1 (5)
PSP (27)
DS (24)
GBA (1)
Genesis (28)
Sega CD (4)

That's not even all the games, just ones I haven't gotten to yet (or finished.)

I was mostly trying to point out that at this rate, it's will take me basically forever to get to them all. I'm not even averaging two games a month anymore.

Let's put it this way, I haven't even gotten to Grand Theft Auto III or Halo 2 yet, and they've been sitting on the shelf for a long time. :drool:

(Not trying to brag or anything; just answering your comment, that's all.)

Has anyone told you you have a sickness? Why even keep buying games, by the time you're ready to play them the same games you buy today will be so much cheaper you could save yourself a ton of money. Yeah the rare games may be more expensive but that's probably a select few out of many.

You're like some women and their shoes at this point....

I'm the same way. Huge backlog, but have kids now so no time to play, yet I keep buying shit. I will only pay generally $10-15 at most per game though so at least I am not buying games and losing a bunch of money on depreciation. You are right though, it is a sickness. All I could say is I guess at least I am not spending my money on alcohol, drugs, or hookers. We all have our vices...

If it makes you feel any better, I have a C64 game in my backlog. I am serious.

I really hope this game stays this price for another week. Damn bills.

Though it doesn't help that about 180 of them are Steam which greatly inflated the amount with their sale of $2.50 games.

Yup... I'm in the 200 or so range. I was always able to beat games through middle school and high school. But as college, work, girlfriend's, and life started to really pick up, I've been finding less and less times for games. I'd say for the last three or four years, I've been buying 4 games for every 1 that I beat. And as such, my backlog is really starting to grow, unfortunately.

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

Absolutely correct on all points.

Yeah, I practically never buy a game for more than $20-$25, and most of the time it's less. Target clearances, Amazon sales (usually $15 or so), Gamestop Power Sales, friends at EA, etc.

So, yes, I could wait until they hit that price point anyway, but since I don't pay a lot for them, I don't lose money. I just have a lot tied up in the games (because of the volume) which sucks.

I have a MASSIVE backlog as well, and jumped this to the top of the queue when the reviews started coming in. I've got Mass Effects, Dragon Ages, Fallouts, and Elder Scrolls all waiting in the wings, but this beat them all.

With that kind of backlog do you generally play the next game in the order that you bought them? If so I'm guessing you guys wait quite a while to get the latest consoles? And I thought my backlog of 6 games seemed intimidating. Wow. But I'm taking people's advice and moving this 999 game to the top. Never even heard of it before this thread.
