Wow, went out of stock when I get my credit card in and about to checkout.

Guess I gotta try the store now...


Yeah, hopefully not a gutted copy though :*(

yea i saw this too....which probably means that they are concerned for space again and that much like gba games they are close to just throwing away ds cases even when they are traded in....


I don't think they will do that, they'll kill that market fast.

if they get any used DS games, they just won't print out a case and such, which imo is fine.... why bother putting up a FAKE case for a cartridge game, with most likely NO instructions...

I think it's a good move.

as for Dark spire being 10, WOW nice drop. I already picked up mine from amazon when it was cheap... but getting it for that low in store is also nice.

The soundtrack is also very splendid, but they have both versions of the songs, but not all of them which is a bummer.

This game always look interesting. I don't know much about it. Is it a remake of an old computer game or is it an original title with the style of those old RPGs? Is it pretty engaging as far as combat goes? I'll still probably pick this up but I'm just curious.

Weird, for some reason I always thought this was more like Shiren than Etrian Odyssey (i.e. die and start over from scratch). Now that I have looked at it again and realized the folly of my ways, I don't know how I can pass it up for $10.

It's an original title but it may as well be a brand new Wizardry game. If you're a fan of first person dungeon crawls and you're willing to overlook some stupid UI choices it's a really enjoyable game.

Thanks for the heads-up, OP. I picked up what looked to be the last truly new, non-gutted copy in town! :)

Decisions, decisions...do I go to the mall a block away that allegedly has one or more 'new' copies, or try and get a used on at the store a quarter mile away tonight or tomorrow along with some other games to maximize B2G1...

Unfortunately none of the GSs I frequent has it in stock. The mall I'm going to tonight has an EB and a GS, but neither have this. Not really worth driving 20 miles to pick up.

The Fuck? I just ordered this from their website last night along with Chrono Trigger for $19.99 each but there was a problem verifying my CC info (their stupid system reformatted my billing address so it no longer matched the one I have on file with the bank) which they emailed me about. I just corrected that, now I see the price of Dark Spire has dropped $10 and is OOS online. Wonder how this is going to affect my order.

See if you can do a return/rebuy at stores, I know I've returned .com orders at the store, but haven't had a price adjustment.

You could always call and see if a customer service rep will manually adjust to the new price since they probably didn't ship it out yet.

How long is the return period? I bought it new at $20 about a month ago.

Should say on your receipt, which you would have to have to do the return anyway.

Great game! The game isn't without a few flaws (some of the menus are set up strangely - I've used items on the wrong party member more than once >:() but those are minor compared to the immense fun that's packed into the game. I felt that it was easier to dive into than the Etrian Odyssey games. At this price, it's well worth picking up and supporting Atlus and Success.

Now, when the hell is Sega gonna wake up and port or make a new version of Shining the Holy Ark for me? :D

Just got it, and it really wasn't gutted in the same sense as other games. They took off the case that holds the cd and game and had it on the shelf. The actual game and cd were still sealed. :D

Nice. I just picked up a new un gutted copy for my friend. Fantastic gift for my friend who loves these kind of games, and barely cost anything. Sweet. :D

Damn that's a great price for a niche game, not all will love it, but those that do will REALLY enjoy it. A steal for that price and one of my fav DS games of the past year.

Now if only they'd do a Dark Tower board game translation like this, I'd b in heaven.

That price is nice, but I have to decide if I want to go for the cheap used or find a new one with the music CD. I like to collect the games with music CDs.

If you like them, get it new. It's only $10 new on the website, so it might be worth it to look for.

get a new copy, its not much more than a used copy (no matter if you do the B2G1 or 20% and card). And I've never seen the game without the cd

Went to the mall across the street from the office and picked up the two new copies they had, the sealed one for me and the 'gutted' complete and mint one for my friend.

There are TONS of new copies all over LA...man, my city does NOT appreciate quality first person dungeon crawlers!!! Tragic. I feel sorry for you guys that don't have any copies within 50 miles or even 100.
