I went to one Best Buy and they were out, but I found the new GGC with the $19.99 coupon and bought one with $5. Went to the next Best Buy and they had several Metal Slug games for $22.50. Thanks again for the deal!

I could have gotten it, but I picked up a GC 251 and a CD instead. I didn't feel like going through the hassle of GGCing again.

Getting hard to find any old GGCs anymore, and the new ones aren't as good. Still, $22.50 is probably the cheapest that game's gonna get for awhile. Now to just find a store that has it :)


The new ones are perfect! They're the SAME thing except expire on 12/31/05! They come in a green case with a PS controller.

Grabbed the last one at the Poughkeepsie BB today,a nd it was marked at 22.50. Weird price, but great game.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Deal is still alive, I grabbed one today and used my last GGC! I was shocked my BB actually still had any.

I went yesterday to try and find one but they were totally sold out. First time I have ever seen my BB look like a warzone/walmart style. Barely any games for any system. They looked it up in the computer (I don't know how accurate they are) but it said that every Metal Slug Advance in my area had been sold out :(. I did luck out and found a couple of Advance Wars 2 for $10, which I guess those will be better gifts than books. They were also sold out of Shaun of the Dead which I wanted to pick up using the 20% off coupon. But I was fortunate enough to find another one of the new GGC that end in 05.

Anybody know if this truly has been discontinued or whether BBs that have sold out of it will receive another shipment?

My BB didn't even get it in until 2-3 weeks after it came out.

It's hard to say...it is still available online at most places...even Best Buy but the price is $29.99. I was suprised because when I picked mine up I think I snagged the last one where as the day before there were 3 or more copies. It seems odd that a game that just came out would already be discountinued. Usually though when I see a game suddenly disappear from BB it never comes back. Either way if you can get this for $17.50 with the GGC it is worth it.

I got it at BB for the reduced price too. This game is indeed awesome. Great grahics, sound, animation, everything. But it's really really short. I know there are cards to collect and other stuff, but still...5 missions will be over before you know it.

They should add in a infinite shotgun ammo/max gore mode. That would kick so much ass.

I just grabbed the last copy @ BB on Clark in Chi-town. It was hidden behind several other games but I was so relieved when I found it. WOO!
