On another subject, and this is a total shot in the dark, but does anyone know where one could acquire the first Atlus PSP title, Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner without paying $90+?


Sorry guys, I should have been more specific in specifying that I am looking for a brand new copy for collection purposes. On the other hand, purchasing a used copy from Gamestop for $10 would be a great deal! However, no Gamestop within 60+ miles from me has a copy (I live in Minneapolis, MN). If only you could request and purchase inventory from Gamestop's brick & mortars via their website.

Thanks for the suggestions though, guys! :)

I just bought Theresia :ds: at Amazon for just $5.12 (Prime elegible)...

Weird thing is, after I placed the order, I wanted to buy an extra copy for a friend, but the price went up just aftet I put my first order...

Damn, looks like you got the last copy from Hubbagames.
I've been wanting to check this game out and $5.12 is a fantastic price!

That's a third-party seller who does their fulfillment through Amazon, not Amazon themselves. Probably means that that particular seller only had one copy in their inventory. In fact, looking on the site, that's exactly what it was -- that seller is no longer listed at all in the third-party merchants.

This is coming on the heels of the gohastings.com 20% off deal going on right now, but since this is Atlus related, I figured I'd post it here.

Anyone that is looking to get a brand new copy of "Class of Heroes," which goes for at least over $40+ anywhere else, can snag it right now for $30 out the door (includes shipping cost) on the site. I just managed to pick up a copy and thought some Atlus fans would be interested in this "deal".


I regret not picking it up when it was cheap...they had this new during the Hollywood Video closure for $14...and I didn't go for it (As I was going for other games) but I regret not picking it up for that price.

Nice!! I still need to pick this one up but $5.12, that is a steal!

Not missing a dungeon from the PSone release, missing the post-game content and dungeon that was present in the Japanese version of the DS release.

Cool....another guy is selling it for $6.99 too. I went ahead and picked this one up.

Btw...does anyone know if "Time Hollow" is any good (Konami/AIC game)? Amazon has it for $52.99 and Gamestop has it used for $9.99.

This may be too late, but the game is not worth any amount of money you throw at it, unless you just want it for collection purposes.

I just picked up Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days, new and sealed, at Gamestop, for $29.99. I know that may not seem like a deal but it seems like it is sold out everywhere else and eBay and Amazon are selling it for much more. YMMV, of course, since it is sold out online.

I played through Time Hollow, and I thought it was a faily enjoyable game. It's pretty short, less than 10 hours, but it was fun and interesting for a point-and-click game. I'd say it's worth $10 if you can find it.

Samurai Shodown Sen is just absolutely terrible. It looks and plays like an old early PSone fighter, complete with old school cheap AI. The artwork on the character select screens is awesome, but that's the only good thing I can say about it. This game makes me sad to see what's become of the franchise.

I liked it too. The lack of the English music was sad but worth the $10 I paid for it new from Gamestop.

Keep in mind that that's not Amazon selling it. It's a super inflated price from some douche Amazon Marketplace seller.

There's a new copy being sold on the Amazon Marketplace for close to $20.

I posted a deal for this game a while back and some people gave their opinions of it:

http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=267682

The $5 off coupon doesn't exist anymore, but gamestop.com still has a few new copies left for $20. As for the game, I played it myself and it was pretty good. It actually got me interested enough to play Junko Kawano's last time travel game, "Shadow of Destiny", which was fairly similar, though I enjoyed the atmosphere of Time Hollow quite a bit more.

I believe this is a spot on description. I wish the graphics looked like the intro screen, instead of, the 3D crap that was vomited on to the disc. The game feels so stiff, and the AI is brutal. Even with an arcade stick, the game is almost unplayable.

Good stuff man! I literally just picked up a brand new copy from Gamestop as well! I looked into buying it elsewhere and it's at least over $45-50 anywhere else. I searched for it around where I live with no luck, but thankfully the rest of my family lives on the East Coast and there was a store about 20 miles away w/ a copy that my brother was able to pick up for me. :)

It pays to have family haha. Either that, or you know you're an obsessive gamer when you've got your family running to grab a game for you over 1100 miles away. ;)
