$10/hr? Bleh.

What's the matter with you? Are you that stuck up that the thought of other people making less than you makes you sick?

I think he just means that $10 an hour is barely a living wage. No need to jump to conclusions.

That's what I make. :-(
If it weren't for these deals, I probably would never get to enjoy so many of these games.

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes and my entry into the Metal Gear universe would have never happened. If I hadn't found a copy for $5 at a local Kmart so many years ago, using this site.

Anyway, how's the newest Harvest Moon game? I haven't got around to playing Tale of Two Towns on my DS yet. I know the newest one is only on 3DS, which is a shame, but if it is good I might bite on a copy.

Minimum wage is barely a living wage at $.7.25, so $10/hr is decent. It's more about how you manage money than what you don't have.

The game is pretty boring for the first two weeks. It does get better when people start showing up.

Natsume is offering their giant cow plushie again if you are willing to shell out 10 extra bucks. It goes for a pretty good price on ebay, so you could kind of get it for free.

Cost of living is different all over the country (I live in VA, and it varies dramatically all over the commonwealth). It may be very manageable where you live, perhaps not so much for others in different places.

I'm surprised you can afford a 2bdrm apartment in SD with $19/hr at all.

That's what, about $2900 a month... Yea, I suppose you could rent a $1200-1500ish 2bdrm apartment.

Edit: I have no idea how someone who makes $10/hr here can make it. That's $1733 GROSS a month.

Got back from Gamestop and the Collector's Edition of Tekken Hybrid (new for PS3) is $19.99. And was happy it wasn't gutted.

And the $5 share coupon on Amazon sure brings things down for Persona 4 Arena and The Last Story or an other game over $25.

More of a return & rebuy type thing. Bring the receipt + unopened game. Sometimes they'll do it with just receipt, but they can be picky.

You know, even though most of these developers are among my favorites, I've never noticed this thread. :dunce:

Well, no time like the present to see some good deals. Also, it seems like the topic creator is gone. OP hasn't been updated in over a year.

Does anyone happen to have an extra unopened copy of Radiant Historia? I can't believe I really wanted to wait for the price to go lower when it was like $17 and then missed when it dropped to $15-something and then went away forever.

Locked in my pre-order of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. Didn't get the CE this time because I dunno what I'd do with a couple of time capsules/mini lunchboxes.

That is a pretty good CE. Wish more companies did them like that. Most CEs suck imo. $10 extra for a small softcover artbook and "soundtrack" sampler. I'm not a fan of those tins though. Steelbook + something else probably would have been better.

The cover looks a lot like the first one. It's not a remake of the first, is it?

No.. completely different game. The box art is decent, but I still like the Japanese boxart better. It just seems more "goddess"-like

Looks good but I feel burned from the first Hyperdimension Neptunia... its gameplay was as bad as chaos wars' voice acting. Still this looks really good... :/

Do they place a pending charge when you place your pre-order?
