Brand new copies of Alien Hominid for $5.00 at The Behemoth's official store. Last batch of copies available. I might bite on this one.

It says $10.00 on the URL given, but when you add it to cart, it shows up as $5.00.

I can't imagine buying this over the XBLA version, but I guess it's cool for collectors.

cool, did not know there were alien hominid or castle crasher figurines. Castle Crasher ones are overpriced, though. $20 bucks a piece, they should cost half that.

The only problem I have is the shipping. They only guarantee UPS Ground which was $11.41 for me.

You can choose USPS but to quote:

"We are not responsible for slow or failed deliveries."

Still managed to get the game for under $10 with S&H though.....

what the figures are back?! darn... it was sold out for soooo long!!

if you get the 4-knights pack, it's actually 4 for the price of 3. but i agree, $20 a pop is a tad high... even at $60 for all 4... you do get the cool armory and display case though.

Alien Hominid was a pain in the ass to find for the GC. Excellent game and it supports 480p. Weeellll worth $5!

Does the XBL version have the awesome four-player level editor "mini game"?

Thanks OP, done and done. Got 1 of each version. This is especially good because not only is it a good collector's item, but i missed the 400 MS sale, so i'll finally get to play it.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Nope. The level editor is the only thing the Live version is missing.

Yeah, cheapest shipping is 3.58 for USPS. It is a great game. If I did not already own it for XBLA, I'd be all over it. Still a great deal. Go Behemoth!

$5.00 New for the GCN version is a steal.

GS sells it for $10 used, and I've never seen a good condition/complete one at a store.

Thanks for the tip OP - done and ordered.

I purchased both the GameCube version and the PS2 version for the sake of collecting. I've been told this game is very rare, so $5.00 is actually a steal. Anyone know where I can find the GBA version?

Well this deal came from out of nowhere. I would've given up on finding any new copies of the GameCube version. Thanks OP for bringing it to our attention!

Just curious - Is there any advantage to owning the PS2 version to downloading it on Xbox Live? I own and still use my PS2 regularly, and at $8.58 w/First Class Shipping, it's cheaper than the 360 version. From seeing the posts above, it's rare to see this price less than $10 new, but is the old version worth it?

It would appear the Gamecube version is Out of Stock. Damn it! Why didn't I shirk my responsibilities and check CAG sooner?

The XBLA version is in HD. personally I'd just go with the XBLA version if you have an HDtv.

Great co-op. Nice to have a physical disc that can be resold, or resintalled.

Orig had this on the PS2, and sold it -- wasn't man enough to handle playing it single player. Then my son got old enough to play it, and I snagged it for the GC, and we play the hell out of it. Incredibly fun co-op.

Rare? I don't know about that. It's a great game; hardly worth collector's value, though. Given a better version of it is available for cheap via XBLA, it's not going to go up in value or anything.

Picked mine up for <$10 at CC when a while back. Game is solid, but incredibly hard (we're talking close to Ninja Gaiden hard) but it's a lot of fun.

For those that missed this deal, like me, Amazon Marketplace has some pretty good deals on this as well.

PS2: For as little as $2.88 plus $3.99 S/H (from Salvo Books).

Gamecube: For as little as $9.96 plus $3.99 S/H (from Hastings).


I bought one of each for these prices. The GC version being $5 more than the earlier deal...but the PS2 version being an even better deal. These are brand new too BTW.
