Just stopped in to tell every GC owner to BUY WINDWAKER NOW! ;)

It's one of the best games of all time, and I personally thought it was much better than any other Zelda title including OOT and Twilight Princess.

is the $15 difference between ninja gaiden and ninja gaiden black worth the difference of the 2 games' content? Ive never played any ninja gaidens and dont know what the difference is between the two.

Ninja Gaiden Black had some extras and "Ninja Dog" mode which if you died enough times it would scale back the difficulty. I picked up Black for $19.99 or $24.99 (can't remember) during the B2G1 sale. I'm not sure what the original goes for, but $15 difference seems a tad large.

Personally, unless you've played Ninja Gaiden and have no problems with the difficulty level I'd go for Black.

I'll probably grab Resident Evil 2 and 3 if they are complete and in excellent condition. I have them for the PS3 but I am survival horror collector- especially RE and Silent Hill. I would grab an Eternal Darkness if they had one since mine is factory sealed and I cannot bring myself to open it- haven't seen any at a local GS though :(

Was thinking of getting the Zelda Collector's game but I recall it being $50 at GS :cry: I am not a big Zelda fan but that is such a good collection that probably won't be put on a disc again.

I thought the reason they took your personal information was so they could replace it? As long as you give them your name,address, etc... you should be able to get them to give you a new one.

I dont know how you guys got your discounts to work because I was told by two stores today, that the 30% off xbox/gc games is completely fake. This isnt the first time i have been told my coupons have been fake. The last one I had that apparently wasnt real was the 50% bonus trade in credit. These photoshop coupons are pissing me off and Im just going to resort subscribing to gs website...:bomb:

When I first saw this my mouth was watering, but then the realization that I would need to blow all my gamestop credit to complete my collection set in. I'm probably just going to complete a couple series that I own except for Resident Evil , Legend of Zelda, and Pikmin. Since I live in the middle of no way, if a game like Metal Gear Solid fell into my lap I'm sure I would purchase it too.

Well on the 50% trade-in bonus, they were only valid in certain areas and most stores weren't taking printouts. I can see how they thought that one was fake.

This particular coupon comes directly from the Gamestop website. If you right click on the image in the first post and go to view source or view image (if in Firefox), it takes you to a Gamestop.com URL. Actually would be a good way to print it off too to show them that it came from their website.

Did they even input the code into their system or did they automatically say it was fake? A lot of printers don't print, or people don't set them to print in the quality that allows it to be scanned. Gamestop knows this, which is why the include the discount code under the barcode. If they would have input the code, it would have worked. If they did input the code on the coupon, and it still didn't work, I don't know. This coupon is legit as far as I know. Used it twice myself, by being scanned directly from the barcode. It wouldn't have shown up in their system otherwise.

I'm curious as to if there were high value games that you picked out and the employees seen them? I'm not saying that is what happened, but you never know.

is the $15 difference between ninja gaiden and ninja gaiden black worth the difference of the 2 games' content? Ive never played any ninja gaidens and dont know what the difference is between the two.

Is the Ninja Gaiden on the X-Box the same version that is on the PS3? I know its a really dumb question.


I present to you... Chronis's guide to Ninja Gaiden!!

First of all. they are all basically the same game. Just some have tweaks and bonuses that others don't have.

Ok, the original. It's the most bare bones of the bunch. Doesn't have an easy mode (Ninja Dog) so if you aren't hardcore enough to handle this game, this version probably isn't for you. Also, if you beat the game, you are able to restart to find all the scarabs which you'll need for the things I'm describing next. However, if you are interested in the 3 NES Ninja Gaidens (the ones that have been released on the Wii's Virtual Console), this may be the version for you. However, it is a bit hard to unlock all three and I think will take you 2 playthroughs. Also there were some Hurricane Pack things that were available for download on the XBL. I don't know much about that, though I think those were built into Black.

Ninja Gaiden Black is an update of the original. Overall, it is a harder than the original by adding a few new enemies and tweaking existing ones. But they also added Ninja Dog mode. If you die 3 times, you'll unlock that. The problem is that in order to play on Dog difficulty, you'll need to restart your game. And you'll be made fun of by the game. For rizzle. They also took out the NES games (thought they put in some spinoff somehere in there or something...), and they also took out the ability to play again after beating the game. You'll have to restart a new save, as in Sigma.

Sigma on the PS3 is an update of the original. It doesn't have the added enemies that Black has or the NES games, though it does have Ninja dog mode. Sigma does add 3 parts of the game where you get to play as Rachel (the chick with the "Double Dragons") though, which has a much different feel than the other parts of the game. Plus, there are a few minor changes to the locations of stuff from the other games. Also, the game looks nicer though the others looked so good it's not that much of an upgrade. Also, there is some downloadbale (for a price) stuff on the PSN.

Couldn't find much. I am damn sick to seeing generic cases or beaten up boxes of games with no manuals. Every time I see a game that happens to have its original case, I'm like "wow, that's here?!" I open it up and there's no manual and the case is scuffed hardcore and has stickers aplenty.

I did see complete copies of RE2 and 3 for the GC for 30 bucks, but I didn't bite because even for 40 percent off I can't justify that right now.

Anyway, I did luck out and picked up Super Monkey Ball 2 and Predator Concrete Jungle for about 14 total. I wanted to do more with the slip but their selections are just really losing their prestige. I also did finally pick up Dementium which I've wanted for a while, so now I've got a game to play on my upcoming trip.

any game i've bought which the sticker was on the side of the art itself, have slowly peeled off with no problems. But then again, they were freshly put on there. I keep a close eye on my 2 gamestop quite regularly. I'm glad my gamestops don't stick the stickers on the art, they just slide the piece of paper with the sticker on it down the side.

IMO if you're typically a generation behind in gaming, and have a tendency to "collect" (meaning you buy way more games than you actually have time to play), then the Edge card is well worth it...
