Legacy of Kain: Defiance (PS2) for $9.98 at the Target on Harbison near Columbiana Mall, Columbia, SC.


Dammit, I'm competing with you now for cheap games?! :) (I live 5 minutes from Columbiana Mall.)

Kinda of figured more CAG's were around. Looking for anything during the CC sale was tough. :) Never make many trips to that area anyways. I'll let ya know if the Two Notch Target has anything tomorrow.

Are you closer to the Two Notch stores than the Columbiana ones? I get tired of wasting gas driving out there every other week, sort of.

That whole Harbison pocket sees too much business to stay on top of cheap games, now. The CC deal was cleaned out the night it broke. I went in two days later after games I knew no one would want (like Disaster Report and Crimson Sea). Still came out that with six games or so, though.

I have part 1 on DC, if you like music games it's worth $10. It's more of a timing game like Parappa than a game like DDR but it's fun.

how long does a clearance game take to drop in price? My Target has a copy of Sly Cooper for 13.98 and I'm waiting on it to go lower.

i have to have the japanese versions of sega games. i think the only games they leave alone are the fighting games -- actually they've always been badly dubbed "i'm faster than lightning!", but that's par for them
btw, has it been mentioned that ubisoft has a doublepack of pop/splinter cell for $19.99? mentioning it just in case

Here's a Target tip:

I had bought SSX3 (xbox) for $10 on clearance . . . I saw here that it then dropped to $5 . . . damn it!

I still had it sealed (like half of my CC games). So I tried to get a price adjustment . . . I know they won't generally do that, so I removed the red price tag thinking it might confuse the clerk. It was a young guy at returns and he said they can't adjust . . . I had him return it. Then asked if I could rebuy it . . . he wouldn't let me (store policy). I saw him toss it in the return bin and left.

I returned the next day and the game was in the loose game section (greatest hits area) with no red tag! It was now $5 in the system so I rebought it.

If I had left the red tag on . . . they would have put it in clearance and it probably wouldn't have been there when I got there.

This might be worth a try for others doing returns.

Is it really worth that kind of trouble over $5? What if you didn't get the game?

Yeah, I'm so cheapass sometimes that I scare myself.

There is some weird bug in me that can't stand having paid more for something than I could have.

As for losing the game . . . I have so many unplayed games . . . I've clearly (like many others on CAG) crossed over into an area where SOMETIMES the games matter less than the deals themselves . . . very sick!

Maybe Prozac or booze could help me :-k

I have crossed into that area too, I have so many unopened games I have actually built up an immunity to the cheap ass deal. I went to TRU and didn't buy anything!

Sorry for the delay. Forgot I posted here. :)

Actually I live near Lake Wateree so the Two Notch store is alot closer. Found out about the CC sale July 4 (very late I might add) and I think the sale broke out the day before. Hit up CC first thing that monday morning.
Picked up 18 titles overall but nothing really big.

Did not have the chance to hit up Target the other day. Probably hit them up Sunday.

Actually got to stop by Target today. Saw very few clearance items and nothing to get excited about. They did have one copy of Devil May Cry 2 for 9.98 next to some portable cd players they were clearing out. I hate when they scatter items all over the place.

I did not pick up DMC 2 either so its up for grabs.


******* Stopped by CC next door (Two Notch) they have Eternal Darkness (GC) for 10 bucks. Very good deal.

At Target In Willoughby, OH

Not much on clearance at all. Spy Hunter 2 rung up for $4.98 so I bought it. There was a Spy Hunter 1, but I think someone bought it. Also, it's not on clearance, but Max Payne 2 is $16.88 (on sale). Everyone here should buy it because its an incredibly fun game

Dang! Saw Pitfall PS2 in the case at my Target . . .

Had a clerk scan it hoping for $4.48 . . . but it came up $9.98.

I passed on it and they'll probably put them out for clearance and get snapped up.
