It was backordered for a few months, it is one of the highest-rated games released this year, and this is the lowest that it has ever gotten. It barely dropped $5 a few days ago and now it dropped $10.

Is Fire Emblem that great of a deal, is it really hard to find or something? Is it not expected to dip down to $20 eventually? It just came out a few months ago so it seems like a fine deal for a fairly recent game, but $10 off didn't immediately strike me as amazing. Maybe there is something I'm missing.


Apparently people say it's hard to find even though it's been readily available pretty much everywhere since it came out.

It's still readily available at my local stores and on amazon (999+ copies last time I checked), so I'm holding out for a lower price on FE.

How is MK7?

And has there been a better price on it?


I was disappointed. The courses don't have enough shortcuts, and there just isn't enough new. Online is kind of fun, but it could really use voice chat. I know that it has been $29.99 before, but I'm not sure if it's been lower. Maybe on eBay.

Someone started spreading rumors of FE being hard to get. Fact of the matter is that its been readily available in almost every store since launch, those that dont have it are stores that stock only 2-5 copies of games, and even they tend to get restocked within a week.

You can still fire emblem games from years past without any problem either. Its just a rumor mill.

Game is great tho. But shouldnt be a problem to get it at 19.99$ later this year.

This is more of a fanservice pack, than traditional FE. Tons of downloadable guests from previous games who have relatively little plot relevance.

Part of it's because it's a really solid game. The other part is that it's published by Nintendo and their more popular titles take a while to drop to $20. Some people seemed to get pretty excited by the fact that the game was recently available for just $5 off. It could very well hit $20 at some point later this year in a flash sale but I can't imagine it'd stay in stock for very long at that price. If Metroid Prime & Xenoblade has shown us anything it's that Nintendo's not afraid to occasionally pull a title well before the demand has been met.

Where? Radiant dawn? Path of radiance? Even shadow dragon is tough to find at msrp.

Easy to find and cheap aren't the same thing.

Any thoughts on Scribblenauts Unlimited?


It's decent, but I sort of liked the level/menu layout style and sandbox of the first 2 better. This one actually includes a story and sort of lays everything out in an overworld with separate towns/areas where you talk to people to do quests for them and stuff (main star quests being the typical ones like the other games and some simpler partial-star quests often being really easy like just creating one object). Overall, so far, the quests have either been pretty simple or, occasionally, annoying because they aren't descriptive enough in what they're looking for.

It's also probably the first time in a Scribblenauts game where I've repeatedly found myself getting annoyed because of the limited vocabulary instead of impressed by all the stuff included...or, in some cases, being annoyed at words being removed because of censorship or keeping things kid-friendly.

That's not to say it's a bad game by any means...and it's probably worth the $20 (which is what I paid for it at a past Target sale). I just, personally, thought Super Scribblenauts was better.

Off topic: I would get the Wii U version over the 3DS version as it is superior with the word builder.

If i have a digital copy of 3d land is there a way i can transfer my saved game to the physical copy? Planning on getting 3d land for the collection. Thanks


No you can do a 1-time transfer from physical to digital via a Nintendo app but not the other way around.

I ordered my Awakening yesterday and the representative didn't want to give me the $5.

I got it in the end, but it took a very long time.
