Definitely glad I caught wind of this. My PS2 library has been pedantic for the longest time.

$0.99 buys:

Ace Combat 4
Airblade
Dropship: United Peace Force
Enter the Matrix
GoDai: Elemental Force*
Intellivision Lives
Kengo: Master of Bushido
Mad Maestro
Reign of Fire*
Shifter
Taito Legends 1*
Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution
Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions

BG2G stuff (>$0.99):
Extermination
Genji: Dawn of the Samurai
King Arthur
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
Warriors of Might & Magic*
Nightshade
Terminator: Dawn of Fate
Turok: Evolution
Winback

The *'d games are ones I ordered online and am still waiting to arrive, since there weren't any copies available here. Aside from LOTR (which I had a lot of fun doing co-op with when it first came out), I've never played any of these personally but have heard of some of them. It's gonna be fun giving these all a spin and seeing if some of the more budget ones are as bad as I've heard. I'm almost tempted to go back one more time this weekend and comb through the $0.99 ones again, but I can't really see my backlog as it is right now getting exhausted any time soon.

Maybe some $0.99 games I'd recommend to be on the lookout for are Taito Legends 2 (newer compilation of games compared to TL1) and Eternal Ring (PS2 launch title based on the King's Field engine). I picked up both of those before the sale started but I've already gotten a lot of play out of them.

:bomb: You found Airblade. I've been looking for that one since I heard about this sale. I almost picked up another 5 pack today from my closest GS(which is also the newest), which would've included Godai: Elemental Forces and Trivial Pursuit Unhinged.

I also saw that Stuntman Ignition is one of the $1.99 games and almost picked that up with The Getaway and two other titles for $4.

But I haven't even tested the 10 I bought the other day.:-#

There were several copies of Airblade here. Anything that looks like a more futuristic Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is worth a try in my book.

Checking their site again, there's a couple B2G2s I may yet consider picking up depending on how I feel after this weekend.

In stock here:
Activision Anthology
Bard's Tale
Death by Degrees
Goblin Commander
Onimusha
Midway Arcade Treasures 3
Rygar
Wrath Unleashed

And others I'd either have to order online or see if the store here can get in from other places:
Crimson Sea 2
Dragon Rage
Ecco the Dolphin
Rune: Viking Warlord

I probably wouldn't be considering doing all this if I didn't have a bunch of credit sitting there right now, but it's tempting to say the least.

I saw a copy of the original Midway Treasures(the one with Rampage on it:D) at the store I hit up last night. It was actually complete for $5.99. Once I get another eRewards gc I may have to look into grabbing a copy of it.

Ha! Speaking of Rampage.....I forgot I have Rampage:Total Destruction:ps2:. Fun game! Haven't played it in forever!

Rygar
Wrath Unleashed
Dragon Rage
Silent Scope


Just put in an online order for these four, and that's where I'm drawing the line. I promised myself I'd save enough credit for the Ragnarok Odyssey mercenary edition. My backlog gently weeps...

fantavision [launch title. still holds up?]
mad maestro [classical music in a rhythm game? sure why not?
vexx [gamestopper told me it was like sly cooper and such, in space]

metropolis mania [oh boy]
mdk 2 armageddon [i asked the gamestopper what was this game about based on the disc cover, he said, "well it looks like it might be some game dealing with armageddon, like the end of the world". ok thanks bro]
giants citizen kabuko [asked the same guy and he said, "well judging by this beast on the cover, you might be having epic battles"
fugitive hunter [osama and saddam!]
no one lives forever [stealthy game, i am down]
stolen [same]
MOH frontline [used to love the franchise on ps1]
mgs 2 [no brainer]
okage [tim burton styled rpg?]
kao kangaroo 2 [20 cents too much?]

and these from the b2g2, total 9 bucks

deus ex,
hitman 2, [i love this one]
the plan [i dug it back in the day, yes i was the one]
the legend of alon dar [it had the case, so the game was able to lure me into buying it with those bogus promises of unreal gameplay and freedom, whatever, 20 cents]

romance of the three kingdoms vii [for if i ever want to feel like i have no idea what i am doing in a game, and i want it to take 417 hours]
ephemeral fantasia [i dont think i ever heard of this one]
castle shikigami 2 [NEVER heard of this one]
ribbit king [has ANYONE heard of this one? a double disc version? a thought or a rule. no game titled ribbit King should ever have a 2 disc version. or even a 1 disc version]

most of these games i havent even seen a screenshot from let alone played or read a review of, but hey, 20 cents a pop.

i think i am doing ONE more run.

I left behind a Virtua fighter 4 and 69 racing games


still it was fun.
thanks gamestop

I stopped by my local Gamestop to see if they had any decent PS2 stuff left and was told that they have games in back, but they're no longer in the system and they can only be shipped out to other stores. :S

Plus I can't seem to get the deal to work on Gamestop.com.
Is there some kind of promotion/coupon code I need to enter?
I add 4 pre-owned PS2 games to my cart and it takes 10% off each one with my PowerUp card, but there's no mention of the B2G2 (I know the 5 for 99ยข is in-store only).
I think my account it screwed up b/c I get an error whenever I try to checkout too.
Barf. :(

Ha! Speaking of Rampage.....I forgot I have Rampage:Total Destruction:ps2:. Fun game! Haven't played it in forever!

Wasn't that the one where they tried making it so you had more than one row of buildings to annihilate on each level? As it stands, I also have the Arcade Party Pak from PS1 which has Rampage, Klax and some other games on it. I think I only ever really played those two games out of all of them though.:lol:

I saw and left behind Silent Scope 2 at another GS the other day. That too is also a $.99 game. I also saw some Lego Soccer Mania game, but that was a $1.99 title.

If anyone wants me to, I could make a 5/$1 PS2 trading thread in the deal/shopping discussion section(that a mod would likely move to the master trade list section later on) so that those who missed out on X or Y game could put up a post requesting those games.

EDIT: Alright. For as much as I said I wasn't gonna help out round here when I came back from my two week hiatus, here's the PS2 game trading thread for this sale(currently located in Deals/Shopping Discussion).

Thanks OP. I was just a little curious of what my local store would have today. I figured I'd find 5 games that I wanted. I ended up buying 80 games total. I pretty much just bought 1 of each .99 cent game that wasn't scratched. That's the first time I've ever bought 80 games for less than $16.

Does anyone know what the sale is tommorow? I dropped by after seeing loopers today and the manager said to come back tommorow, no wink, nod or shhh motions. I asked if it would include the cased games but he said no and all I could get out of him was that the salel will be better tommorow.

I kinda wanted to try that game out, but not at the current $5-6 I think it's listed at on the GS website. Maybe the next time I'm able to get an eRewards gift card I'll splurge and grab that, Midway Arcade Treasures(original one with the old Rampage) and the Aqua Teen Hunger Force golf game.:D

:lol: I actually thought about that too, but only if the TIV on each PS2 title was still $1 like it used to be. That'd be funny as hell taking in 100-200 unique titles and getting $2.10 each for them after paying $.10 a pop.

These are the highest valued PS2 game TIVs at BB(all base value):

Battle Engine Aquila-$1
EyeToy AntiGrav-$1
Final Fantasy XI-$1
The Dog Island-$0.50


That 10 for 99cents should be interesting if I can, actually, find more GSs that sell PS2 games.

A buy 3 get 3 and/or lowering the PS2 game prices could be cool, as well. They have some games I want to add to my stash, but not at some of their prices for disc only.

I was kind of shocked to see that everything below the $9.99 threshold wasn't gutted and disc only at that closest GS the other night. That's about the only way I would buy the MAT game is if it's actually complete and in decent shape.

Don't tempt me guys, I have way too many games I still need to test out from last week, and that's on top of the ones I'm still waiting to get shipped here.
