I want to get my friend one of those NFL controllers for his birthday, but nothing else in that sale seems appealing to me. Wanted to get Singularity for the 360, but it's sold out. The only other games that I'm remotely interested in is Majin for PS3 and Monopoly Streets for PS3, and that's really stretching it

amazon sucks lately probably not going to buy games anymore from them.
their sales are set sail for fail.



If the occasional mediocre sale is enough to keep you from shopping with one of the best online video game retailers ever, then good riddance.

Everything about this sale is fail. I'll be spending my money on Steam this holiday weekend.

+1. But you can't expect someone who spells his own username wrong to understand that.

I don't know why people bitch about retailers. There's always gonna be a sale sooner or later at a retailer. So just... buy it where the deal is good.

Not sure how much it is since I can't find it listed, but Amazon had it for $18 by itself a couple months ago. Hope you didn't get ripped off.

Thinking about these 2 Wii games:

http://www.amazon.co...NXEHYH7CDBGRE61
http://www.amazon.co...W4486T0NFDXJMC8
Any opinions?

*BTW, I think both of these games are a waste of the earthly resources they consume being non-biodegradable plastic, the electricity wasted in manufacturing and killing at least 1 tree total for the entire production runs' worth of manuals!!

Remember when Nintendo used to have pride as to what they allowed on their consoles? What ever happened to the gold seal of approval?

Yeah, it just means that the game will work; it's not some indication of quality.

Yeah. Here's the thing: everyone romanticizes the past but there were tons of shitty video games back then too. All the shovelware on the nintendo these days doesn't mean nintendo doesn't care (any less than they did in the NES days.) You never know if a game will be a blockbuster seller (See that Dance game) so you almost have to approve everything unless it is offensive.

So people need to stop bellyachin about all the shovelware on Nintendo. Do they suck? Sure. But it's not as if you thought a Dream Salon game from Zoo was good did you? No one is forcing you to buy these games.

Aw what happened? They had RoF on there for $26 or something but OOS. They got it back in stock, jacked the price to $30, and removed it from the sale.

I'm a sad panda...

^ This. LJN in particular was always fun, I can remember as a kid being psyched to play X-Men on the NES only to find it was a botched abortion of epic proportions. And that had Ninty's seal of approval. Yet, my copy of Tengen's RBI Baseball did not, and it was probably my favorite sports game from the NES.

Saw that late last night as well. Tried to get it with another game but the B1G1 would not trigger. Whille RoF went back onto the list, it's product page didn't show the B1G1 promo. Oh well Amazon, no money for you!

It's true. We all remember the 10-20 NES games that have stood the test of time and really make you feel like a kid again, and forget it had about 400 other horrible games that weren't very good back then and are complete shit now.

The N64 is the same way, and I think the Wii will fall into that trap too. SNES had more good games than bad IMHO, and the Gamecube did OK too (mainly because 3rd parties abandoned Nintendo that generation...)

Not sure if this is just me, but I added the Starcraft Battle Chest and Resonance of Fate to my cart and at checkout it deducted the cost of Resonance of Fate ($30) instead of Starcraft ($20), making the total $19.99 for both. Even funnier is that Starcraft isn't on the sales page put it's included in the sale.


I found one copy of RoF at kmart for 20 bucks in the value section. Best jrpg I've played in a long time.

The Kmart near me feels so dirty ... Guess I'll have to bite the bullet and go take a look.

Just got my two Wii Classic Controllers. They're actually Japanese imports, don't know how I missed that fact when I bought them--the product title says "Japanese Version" now that I look at it again. They work perfectly on the American Wii, so no problem there.
