Just bought a 3DS (gotta love that PUR Gamestop coupon deal) and zelda of course. Any suggestions from this sale on what else would be worth picking up? The selection seems rather mediocre and I might just wait until Star Fox next month.

Super Street Fighter 4 3D and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon plus either Star Wars: The Clone Wars 3/Dead Or Alive Dimensions for around $60 is pretty good.

thanks for the feedback guys, between the massive backlog and the near unanimous no from you guys I will wait til it hits the magic $20 mark


I tried the demo and can't understand the hate. I really liked it, just have a massive backlog so no need to rush to buy.

Just because the majority of reviews weren't favorable doesn't necessarily mean YOU will dislike it. Games like Conan, Too Human, and Eat Lead never got good reviews yet I absolutely loved them (and I thought GTA IV and Halo sucked). You have access to the demo on XBL, why not check it out?

Thoughts on BlazBlue 3DS? For $20 I'm thinking of picking it up, though I've also heard the PSP version is better. Thoughts?

The 3DS version is pretty good and I don't have any major issues with it. The 3DS version has faster load times than the PSP version. The 3D effect is layered with characters and gauges in the foreground while the background is pushed a little back. Though with 3D on it does contribute to a little slowdown in multiplayer.

Two things to keep in mind, the game does not support sleep mode meaning that if you close the 3DS, the game still runs. Also the circle pad is pretty much used as a taunt button, so all of your movement is done on the d-pad (this is also the case on the PSP version).

While its disappointing that this does not have online (which is probably due to the game being a port of a PSP game), there is plenty of stuff to do in the game since there are many modes. It is definitely worth $20.

Awesome sale! Picked up Tactics Ogre and Trails in the Sky. Greg Kasavin (from SuperGiant Games AKA the people who made Bastion) recommended Trains in the Sky if you like those old school style JRPG's.

Any actual proof of that statement? Or are you just under the assumption that EVERYTHING is going to be cheaper on black friday? Shoot, if that is the case, everyone should only only buy stuff on Black Friday, the day where everything is at its cheapest! :roll:

On a serious side, Valkyria Chronicles 2 can be purchased at Gamestop for $19.99 New / $17.99 used right now, so that may be the better option for some people based on credit.

I don't know about 360, but I've been keeping an eye on the ps3 version since I got my ps3, and it's usually like $25-$30. See http://camelcamelcam...duct/B003BE6OYS for this history -- it WAS like $12 at one point, but that was before I got my ps3.

Is this worth grabbing?

I believe it was $20 around last black friday during a lightning deal for the UMD version which I picked up. A few days later it was $15 for the PSN version which a friend of mine picked up. So at least last year was great for the game!

The first Valkyria chronicles craps all over the second one. The game play of part 2 was good as ever but the game didnt have the heart and soul of the original. I just couldnt get into part 2 sadly :(

Monster Tale is 20.99, not the lowest I've seen it but close. I think it's worth that.

I bought the 360 a few months ago and it was $12.85.

Those are tempting prices... especially for 358/2 and Trails in the Sky LE. But I just can't bring myself to do it.

Thanks, gonna pick it up. I don't really care too much about the online play, so that's not a big deal for me.
