It's selling very well. Since released it's sold over 800k.

I really want this game. Might just get it for this price if I don't find a better price. Thanks for the heads up, OP.

It's price dropped at Amazon this week along with a bunch of other games including Epic Mickey, Goldeneye, Smackdown vs Raw 2011, Rock Band 3, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Sonic Colors, COD: Black Ops, and NBA Jam (all for Wii).

Really this thread could be titled "Newish Wii games all priced at $39.xx so you don't have to buy 2 and get a $30 gift card from Best Buy"

I bit and I'd give you guys the links but I'm not allowed to post links so sorry about that. And the website is Amazon.

You can at least say where it's that price even if you aren't allowed to post links. Otherwise, this thread is useless.

The reason why it's so good is the fine-tuned difficulty. I highly recommend this game.

My second best 2010 game (behind SMG2). Good year for Wii considering I own all three consoles + gaming pc and played most of the major games from each.

Do people think that, like other Nintendo titles, this won't drop much farther?

It seems to be performing well critically and commercially, so I'm guessing the deals you've been seeing lately might be as good as it gets until this time next year.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

I think I have to tag this and Kirby on the BB deal. Too bad Amazon didn't go for a sucker punch and say $35 a pop.

Mr Simon was there, too, as well as other Germans who lived through the Berlin blockade like Gerhard Kapito.

Only if you take the time to do the math this is just as good as the Best Buy deal. See the Best Buy thread or the thread about the dead Amazon deal for the maths.

I was initially going to pass on this in favor of 3D Dot Game Heroes, but DKCR was in my gold box quick picks today, knocking another few bucks off the sale price. Using the credit from my ACB order, I bit.

I'll probably pick up 3DDGH at the GS B2G1 sale, since it recently dropped to $17.99.

From Amazon's page on the subject:

The following is a partial list of merchants selling items at Amazon.com which may be included in your order, and the states in which they charge sales tax.

Amazon.com LLC: KS, KY, ND, NY and WA

New Jersey is not included in their list, so you should be okay

This is the first game I paid full retail for in a long time. It's worth every cent and to my surprise it's pretty difficult. Awesome game!

I don't know...I am worried about whether it'll drop, but at the same time, the fact people say it's hard means I'm super skeptical. Maybe I should just rent. Plus I didn't think the DKC games were that great anyway, although I liked DK64.

3DDGH = 3D Dot Game Heroes if you're like me and just ran a Google on it.

I own it...it's in the backlog (plus waiting for my Intel SSD to arrive for my new Playstation :D )
