Mimana: Iyar Chronicle (with 2-disc OST) now $27.89, a drop from $32.00 from Amazon. Any thoughts on this one?


i can see this game falling to around 20 by end of next week.. and staying there

still not worth 20.... no map feature just messes up the game too bad

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.


OT- Hey! Steven's Point, WI has 24 packs of 16 ounce Natty Light for $11.99. I got some back in July. That is a steal if you can stand Natty! It is my binge drinking beer.

Hey guys...noticeable price drops which I put on the front page:

Sakura Wars Wii or PS2 packs have dropped in price...if you see that PS2 pack in good shape used for $22.99, that's a great price.

Record of Agarest set for XB360 is now at $24.99 [used]

Wizard of Oz dropped to under $19 on Amazon

Ignition's Muramasa dropped to $15.80 on Amazon, Ignition's Spectral Force Genesis dropped to $12.93 on Amazon

Mania Khemia Student Alliance also dropped as well...

Also, Xseed's Avalon Code and Half-Minute Hero dropped in price (used).

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 guess I got really lucky then when I found it at Best Buy for 50% off. It came to $14.99 +tax! :bouncy:

Also here's a tip for everyone...Kmart recently got a huge bin of Front Lane stickered games within the past week. Most of it is shovelware but I managed to find :ds: From The Abyss for $9.99:)

I saw From the Abyss for $10 at Kmart (this week u get a $10 coupon with DS games). Might be worth the try with the coupon.

Yeah, for that price it's very good. $29.99 it was not. So, that's a good deal!

That's because Amazon charges an outrageous commission fee for each sale. So inevitably, in order for private sellers to survive on Amazon, they pass those fees onto the consumers. And most times they're simply breaking even. I can vouch as someone who has sold just a few items on there randomly, only to see their huge fees take a huge chunk off of the final sale price. It almost entirely negates prospective small amateur sales. Ebay is not much better either after you get the final listing fees and Paypal takes their cut.

I've actually found Glyde and Half.com to be the better options for amateur single sales, however, they are also not as well known either as Amazon and Ebay, and therefore items can sit for months before they sell. Just my 2 cents on an issue I'm sure has been discussed/argued to death. :roll:

Just an FYI that Amazon has Contact (DS) for $8.31. If you have Prime or use FSSS this is a pretty good deal. This is directly through Amazon, not a third-party seller. 117 copies left.

Nice price! Thanks for the heads up! I've seen this game compared to Earthbound although I've heard it is also not as good. Anyone play this?

Yeah, back when I used to drink that's the shit we used for beer bongs. :P

Actually, there are a couple of sellers on Amazon that do inflate the shit out of their prices simply because a game's a bit more rare or for whatever other stupid reasons. Definitely not to make up for Amazon's fees.

As I said in my post, there were a couple of other sellers that were selling the game for WAY less.

Yeah, I know that. I've seen those sellers and it's absolutely ridiculous. I was just speaking in general, but yeah, of course there are then those aforementioned sellers that completely take advantage of other ppl. There will always be ppl out to get others though.. nothing new. :-k

On the other subject about beer though -- Ugh! How in the hell could you guys drink that s**t!? haha. Now that I'm old enough to understand and appreciate what great beer is, I think I'd rather drink my own piss than drink a can of Natty, but to each their own! ;) haha

It's ok, but not nearly as good as Earthbound. It's short and kind of boring to be honest. I didn't hate it but you wouldn't be missing much if you skipped it.

Play the fan translation of Mother 3 if you want more Earthbound.

Amazon's 15% off GAMESAVE code works with P3P. And it looks as though Amazon has yet to exhaust its supply of bonus Junpei caps.

Amazon sent me an email saying Nov 3rd - 6th as the estimated time they will get more. That game looks so awesome.
