Gah, the dollar in the eighties seems pretty bad, but I was actively buying stuff when our dollar dropped down near the fifties quite some time ago ;_; Now that was bad...

Okay, there were a lot of comments since I last checked (I had to work a double shift yesterday between my two jobs so I wasn't able to check until now). Here are my responses ^_^

killmak - Thanks for the payment. I see you got your card and everything's working, so that's great. I appreciate the positive feedback as well.

mberkes - Ar Tonelico 2 is $60.50 shipped as another CAG pointed out. As for Shadow Hearts, I do have a personal copy but do not know the current selling prices for this game. I can look into that for you.

Jest - Yes, I'm really happy with the direction that GFC is taking. I just really hope the financial situations in both the US and Canada don't negatively affect business. We shall see :) I have a ton of cheap games lying around. Any in particular you're looking for?

Azumangaman - I should have the Lego Batman game today. I'll let you know.

mberkes - No problem if you don't want AT2...it's just that Rosenqueen charges a lot for the shipping, and the shipping to Canada for multiple items adds up fast as well. As for the other games at Target, I didn't see them at my store but what prices were you looking to pay for them? I may be able to find them elsewhere if I look around a bit.

muzras - the Currency exchange is definitely something to think about. It sucks that both the US $ and CAD $ are dropping so rapidly. Hopefully things will shape up soon enough.

magiic - Have you made it to New Zealand yet? Let me know :) If you have your new address, send it my way. Thanks!

That's it for now. Back to shipping games I go :)

Okami Wii still seems to be selling $40-$50 at most places. There is a B2G1 sale this week at Toys R Us though. so in theory I could get three Wii Games for $100 (B2 at $50 and get the third free) which means they'd be like $33 each... something to think about. After shipping/fees whatever it'd be about $38 + tax. Still around the $40 mark though.

I could get you a used copy however for $38 shipped. Let me know, it seems unlikely the game will drop in price anytime soon.

Oh and I just realized that Okami is $40 NEW so with the Toys R Us sale if I'm able to order it, I may very well be able to get 3 Okami's for $80 + Tax meaning that'd be like $31 or $32 shipped to Canada. That's not a bad price at all, though not sure if it's as low as you're looking for. Something to think about anyway.

Hey goomba!

The PS3 triggers came in. These things are in fact amazing. I recommend them to any PS3 user who prefers the R2/L2 buttons as opposed to the R1/L1.

Kathos, yes I did thank you. I just got your package in as well but unfortunately they weigh almost 6 pounds (heavy shirts...Marc Ecko must use nice materials) so the shipping is higher than originally expected. I'll find out the actual shipping costs and send you an updated invoice. It's only going to be a few dollars I expect. I'll find the cheapest way to ship it for you :)

Firestorm, I've got your request and sent you a PM. Not sure if you know that Beach Audio charges $7.50 for shipping to US... get back to me. Thanks! And I know ... all the money in the world is crappy at the moment. Kind of depressing.

Oh and Rex, glad to hear you like the triggers ^_^ I've been getting more orders for them lately so I think it's safe to say people like them. If anyone else wants them, they are $16 shipped in total. Thanks!

Man am I ever glad I swapped over $1500 back when our dollar was stronger than the US.

Too bad I'm probably going to burn it all when I head to Vegas :hot:

It's cheap to ship to/from Canada. Please take a look at Magiic's Magiical Shipping Guide.

Ah sorry. No longer want it. It was in stock by Amazon.com for $19.99 last night. They must have sold out =(
Edit: Wait, on the right hand side there's a button for "More Buying Options" and it lists Amazon.com for $19.99, can you do that?

Anyone else interested in that game? It's pretty hard to find actually. $25 USD Shipped.

Still cheaper than anywhere here. Only new copy I've found is $40 or $50 at Rogers Video. Haven't even seen a used copy.

Glad to help. Sorry that the Canadian Dollar is less than wonderful this week, but like you said this game sells for a lot more at most places. I should get it in Tuesday or Wednesday and have it out to you right away. Thanks!

The price of gas is supposed to drop even more, which means our dollar is going to suffer further.

If I had a choice between cheap gass or cheap-ass deals from the States, I'll take the latter any day.

I haven't bought anything yet at Toys R Us yet because I haven't officially received any orders yet. The problem is that all my credit cards are pretty much maxed out so I need to have confirmed orders/payments before I can just buy stuff. I'm in trouble for buying too many items I thought would sell but instead just gather dust on my shelves waiting to be sold. If you know of three games you want for sure (I know you wanted Okami...which by the way is available on the TRU website for B2G1) then let me know :) Thanks!

If any of you guys want the B2G1 sale from Toys R Us, I'd prefer if you buy 3 games at a time ... that way I can calculate your actual cost. Keep in mind they do charge shipping and 6% tax in my home state.

Example of a sale:
$40 + $40 + $40 Games = $80 after B2G1 + $6 shipping to US + 6% = $91.16
Shipping to Canada = $6 + $Service Charge ($4) = $10
Grand Total: $101.16 USD

That's for $40 games though. Obviously if you buy more expensive games ($50-$60) then you'll save more. Let me know :)
