The Lord of the Rings: War in the North just had another price cut at Gamestop:

$19.99 for XBX
http://www.gamestop....he-north/77557/

$19.99 for PS3
http://www.gamestop....the-north/77555

Supposedly not the greatest hack-n-slash RPG, but I'll be picking it up

Thanks for the heads up. I've been keeping my eye on this. Now if only the collectors edition would drop like a stone.

$17.99 used, might be good with Dead Island (18.99) and something else for the B2G1 used sale.

I wonder if this drop is permanent, or if it's part of this weeks sale.

I haven't played the console version, but if you're a LOTR fan, I highly recommend the game.

I really wanted this at launch, but my Kmart didn't get an copies before my coupon for the game expired.
I still really want it. Hopefully it will pop up on a Gamefly sale sometime soon for $15 or so.

Argh...I got to stop buying games at launch and putting them in my backlog. I paid maybe $20 after gaming coupons from Kmart for this game and still have yet to play it.

It's at Gamestop also.
The other thread has a link to it, but it's out of stock online. If I wasn't traveling today, I'd try my luck in store.

I just played the PS3 version last week and don't remember any significant bugs. Also, this game really surprised me. I thought it would be very generic, but it was great and very memorable. They do a very good job at connecting it to the lore and the events of the LOTR book/movies too. I played this single player and had a great time but I imagine its even more fun co-op since it was designed with that in mind.

I recently finished this game - it was pretty fun.

Regarding the bugs - there is a way to circumvent them. Credit goes to PS3Trophies.org:

Each time you start the game up, load your save normally - which it does by default. Once your game has loaded, immediately quit back to the main menu. Then go to your save file and do a manual load. And play as normal.

Doing this repopulates your quest log - which sometimes loads up with side-quests missing.

Annoying, yes. But, I did this each time I played and it always worked.

One thing I hate about gamestop is their gutted copies of games. I just got the last copy of this for xbox 360 and get home to see that the front of the case has puncture holes. About four of them real close together. Technically a gutted copy that is opened and handled isn't new but when the case has holes in it then it really isn't new. Not to mention that plenty of people handle the case before anyone buys the gutted copy. I'm annoyed but really I should have looked before I bought it. I didn't know it was the last copy and the gamestop employee grabbed the case. Well it is going back to gamestop.

There is a 360 LE marked at $40 at the Wayne, NJ location on route 23 on a rack full of LEs. Had I not already had the PS3 version, I'd have snapped it up.

The answer to your problem is to never buy gutted "new" games from GS, period. By purchasing gutted games, you just encourage this sleazy practice.

Whenever I ask for new games at GS, I always say "sealed only", and if they don't have it FACTORY sealed, I just skip the purchase. Not worth it, no matter how many ways they claim the games are "still new".
