Looks to me like these are just their normal, everyday price on most all of these games. Lumping all your no-selling crap together doesn't constitute a "deal", Amazon.

The DS games pointed out are good deals imo. Especially Radiant Historia for 20 and Monster Tale for only 14.

The funny thing is I received this email early this morning, and contemplated about posting it. Looks like the deed was already done, lol.

I will counter the ops review and say I think radiant historia is a damn fine game. One of the RPGs I fell in love with and could not stop playing.

That is a good price for Monster Tale, but the game itself is actually pretty over-rated: the dual-screen gimmick wears thin rather quickly (think Pokemon light), the challenege is minimal, and there's way too much back-tracking through the uninspired environments.

Then again, I am comparing to the same dev. team's earlier effort--Henry Hatsworth--which is one of the best DS games ever made.

How is goldeneye?



I played through the first level and couldn't stand it. It felt extremely dated with nods to the old game. You'd have figured they would have put a little more work in cleaning it up. I understand they wanted to try and preserve the old N64 version but I think they just got lazy and phoned this one in.

Seems that waiting for $9.99 for Monster Tale is the way to go.

Im in for 4. Really who in their right mind would buy it for that price when you can get it for half at GS on BF and it counts towards a b2g1 on top of that.

Monster Tale for $14 is a must-buy. Its kinda kiddy, but its old fashioned metroid-vania goodness.

Probably in for Radiant Historia, was waiting for a lower price. I'd get TWEWY as well if it had a damn discount!

I just get the deals when I find them, there is definitely no guarantee that Black Friday itself has better deals than the the sales leading up to Black Friday. In fact, last year I specifically remember finding better deals before BF, holding out for BF, and ten feeling screwed over

Really like Amazon. Really sad when they do these "fake" deals. Games like Medal of Honor and Majin have hovered around $12 but come a special deal and they're back up to 19.99 or .96. It's insulting.

Radiant Historia for $19.99 is without a doubt the highlight of this sale. Anyone who doesn't think that's a great price is crazy. There's only 140 copies left at Amazon too, and who knows if they'll get more.

This. Great minds think alike Posted Image. I think we need to add the word fake before daily in the thread title

I'm really tempted to get Monster Tale, but feel like I should pace myself.

We still have a week before the "real" black friday deals week starts for amazon. Their best deals the past couple years have been the week of BF, then on Friday all they do is PM everyone else. Heck, last year they DID PM everyone else during the week, I think I went to walmart at midnight just because it was open, then went back and played CoD Zombies till 5am, didn't even go out on BF because I had ordered everything I needed.

Amazon's deals tend to feel like them clearing stock to anyone paying attention.

It's not that a lot of us don't still love them and buy/pre-order tons of games from them but their pre-sale price hike tactics and obvious old stock moving deals are just a joke.:roll:

When you keep-up and look at the deals on the whole there really aren't many good ones outside of rare occasions. Taking into account places like Steam where most of the deals are not only good but also involve good games it's a striking difference in approach. (especially factoring in Amazon's desire to compete in the digital download space)

Or rather: When Steam puts a meh game on sale no one really cares because it's just a drop next to the vast majority of good stuff which goes on sale constantly whereas with Amazon it's the reverse.

I still love Amazon but they really need to hire someone with core gamer sensibilities to help steer their sales if they hope to ever truly capture said core gamers' dollars during said sales.

Very well said, Ian.

It seems the best deals I come across on Amazon are usually the ones that aren't ever advertised (or a deal of the day on rare occasion). Just casually browsing through the games at various times of the year saves me more money and nets me higher quality titles than their sales usually do.

Definitely a sign that your "sale" tactics are wack.
