NewEgg has no tax in NY unlike Amazon. I couldn't resist. Thanks!


I forgot Newegg has tax in California, so basically this is the same price that I paid for it a couple of weeks ago! That makes me feel better about adding this to my backlog, for whatever reason.

Oh snap, had I not just spent a bunch of monies on my girlfriend's birthday coming up early next month I'd jump on this ASAP but as it is I don't want to put anything else on my card.

Le Sigh. Someday.

Hmm...looks like on Amazon at least it ends up about the same price to just buy the bundle.

This is something I'd try for $13, as it sounds somewhat promising, but $35 is pushing it for me as I don't know if I'd use the motion plus again. MAYBE for Zelda, but it seems like all the critics are saying it doesn't work and is a big step backwards (I know I'd be thrilled if they announced classic controller only for the next one, and hopefully did something new, or really polished, or something.)

I'm on the fence on this one; as the first Red Steel really left a bad taste in my mouth regarding the franchise. I believe I'm not the only one seeing how bad this game sold:

It tanked because of the same reason games like Madworld tanked. The average Wii userbase (families and soccer moms) has no interest in this type of game, and the audience that IS into this type of game likely gave up on, or was never interested in the Wii in the first place.

Not worth it to get a motionplus for this, no, but I've got to say, it *is* a major improvement over the wiimote alone, and if more games start using the motionplus, it will be worthwhile to get one. One of the reasons I got it was, in a sense, to justify the motionplus(es, even though there's no multiplayer so only one can be used for this) I already have.

And forget the first one, this is basically a complete departure, and more like what the first one was supposed to be. At least that's what I've heard, I haven't actually played it yet.

Very tempting deal but I think I'll stick it out and see if it gets to the Madworld price range. I had my hopes up for this game while it was being developed but seems like it turned out just be a pretty average game.

I'm confused by why they called it Red Steel 2. I mean actually Red Steel is a pretty good name, but I kept hearing how "oh, it has name recognition!"...but I think the only people it has that for are us...and we know about the first one :lol:

Thanks. Hmm...Darn, if this included the Motion Plus for this price, or it didn't use it, I'd get it I think, but $35 is just kind of pricey... Plus I kind of feel like if Nintendo releases that Zelda game or whatever it'll include that at a discount, if not free...nah, I'm thinking maybe $60 including the motion plus.

Though I have about zero faith in that new Zelda game, but if all the critics who right now think it's bullshit get the full game and go "huh, it's actually pretty fun" I might consider it.

Although bear in mind you can basically get it for the same price from Amazon if you don't already have the motion plus thing-namely $35ish.

Sure, it's also $35 at Toys R Us, so with the $5 off $25 coupon, it's actually a couple bucks cheaper there. Of course, for game only we're out of luck as Amazon doesn't even have it in stock and hasn't for a while other than through third party sellers.
