Just saw this online and I called a couple stores in my area and it's taken effect. I'm about to pick it up now; it looks really fun and well worth the $20!

It's been tempting while listed at $29.99 at Blockbuster, this is infinitely moreso. Perhaps I'll grab it once I get around to wrapping up Okami.

You sure it's 19.99 in store? I just got back from a Gamestop and I am remembering it saying 17.99.

Could be wrong though.

You probably saw a used copy.

..which is pretty impressive, because I didn't think anyone had bought this game.

Yeah it was used. I didn't realize the OP was talking about new.

I'm hoping for a Wii games coupon from GS this week. Blastworks, Castle Shikigami 3, Zack & Wiki, oh my!

Just remember that Z&W is $7.98 at TRU and I've seen a never-ending supply. They had them early last week and still had them Monday when I went in. YMMV of course - but it is worth checking out if you didn't know about that ;).

I snagged it without hesitation at Blockbuster when they had it mispriced at $29.99. Note that they have since put stickers over the cases bumping it back up to the $39.99 MSRP. Like Boom Blox, though, this game should have been a $19.99 title...

Right! I forgot about that. Thanks Io. I know my TRU did have them once since I bought one for my cousin back during the Wii game B2G1F sale. Hopefully they still have some.

It's a vertical shooter/shmup. Not everyone's cup of tea so if you're interested, just look it up on IGN.

I'll probably stop by Gamestop to check this game out. I've been wanting to get it because I heard so many positive reviews yet no monies.

Still check it out if you love shmups.

I picked this up at release for $40 w/ free $10 GC at Circuit City. For $20, I'd heartily recommend it. It's particularly a blast (har, har) in co-op when you have no clue what the Fuck is going on because of all the stuck-on ships/guns and bullets filling up the whole screen.

Wow, that's a very fast price drop... really thinking about picking this one up, as it could easily become an obscure title.

$20 is a great price for a game that defeated friend codes

edit:

there is also a ton on ebay for $20 f/s

This reminds me: some tell Rare to work a new Blast Corps game.

I picked this up for $30 at Blockbuster at launch. The game is pretty awesome, though it's definitely not for everybody. If you're looking for something new, go for it! Also, there's already loads of user created content available for download (new ships, levels, bullet patterns, etc.). You can even unlock the company's previous shooters as you progress through the main campaign.

Reeaally glad I didn't pick this up at $40 when it came out. I was pretty close.

Io, I heartily disagree that Boom Blox should have been a $19.99 game when it came out. There is a ton of stuff to do in that game, and it must have taken a lot of time/energy/manpower to perfect the physics and control mechanisms. I wouldn't mind SEEING it at $19.99, but it seems like a pretty well fleshed-out game to me.

is this game fairly structured out of the box, or does it depend almost entirely on creating your own stuff/downloading other peoples?

i love the option to rebuild the game, but at the same time i need a structured experience or i'll never get into it. that's what killed audiosurf for me..
