Question. How long does it take for wal mart to get a store pickup after you select it via the website? I was thinking about it today and I figure this game wont get much cheaper. I am going to get Disgaea 4 tomorrow so might as well take another stop into Wal Mart. Going to be at Wal Mart like 11 AM, so I was curious if I can do it overnight.

My order for Kirby and DKCR took about 45 mins before it was ready and I got my pickup email. They estimate it to take 4 hours or less unless you order after a certain time at night.

However, I did the same order process today for the Flingsmash controller bundle through a different Walmart and they never marked my order as ready. I went in 4.5 hours later and asked for it, and it was ready. YMMV

Ok I will order it before midnight and then hit the store tomorrow at around 11 ish when I go to pick up Disgaea 4 at BB.

Looks like amazon partially matched this to $27.23. Must be figuring that everybody pays tax at walmart, or else $1.97 shipping to home.

yeah Amazon price for this game has been dropping, even before this deal, so I'm hoping it will eventually get to $20.

This game only made me go back and play Donkey Kong Country 3. Perhaps I'll go back and finish it sometime.

You have to wonder if this isn't an indication that DKCR will become a Nintendo Selects title for $20 soon. I think I'll just wait for that.

I, like others, wish this game was able to be played with a classic controller etc. Something really bothers me about wiimote + nunchuck together, like you're holding the two pieces of a broken controller in your hands. Still a great game, but a control oversight for sure.

$27.34 at amazon, comes close to the price with shipping from walmart, but less if you add in tax.
