I'm really hoping one of these weeks Best Buy has a deal on something I actually want.

I'm glad they are offering a GC with La Noire during release week although it's only $10 at the moment and not $15. Perhaps they will change that to reflect the $15 they are currently offering online. I would consider taking the $5 hit not to have to wait for them to mail the gift cards to me because they have screwed it up in the past

Lost in Shadow, huh? I might have see what that's all about. What are some other $29.99 games that you all recommend? I might be getting a Wii soon.

I also wanted Gunblade/L.A. Machineguns, but it appears to an outlet item and dropped to $19.99. I might just get that by itself if there's nothing else worth it at my local store. Are outlet items online usually the same price in-store?

Waiting for a $100 Wii as for the ad I'm more interested in the unadvertised deals since they've been really good lately plus they tend to mirror most of the stores ads anyways.

And my god does the Wii libary suck ! Worst 240 dollars ive ever spent.i gave mind to my girlfriend a couple of years ago.i only regret missing out on donkey kong but thats it.i was dissapointed in smash brothers cause the floaty physics killed the game for me.Why couldnt they give you the option to use melee physics ? It made showing my moves almost impossible

I could of sworn that the L.A. Noire Limited Edition Guide was cancelled and only the regular guide would be available. Has this changed? I searched best buy online, gamestop and amazon and no one seems to have this limited edition guide listed. Can the OP or someone please advise on this?

Edit: also I had another questions, If I pre-order The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword and also purchased Donkey Kong Country Returns, would I be able to get New Super Mario Bros for free? Reason i'm asking is because these are the only 3 Wii games I'm interested in and I'm not sure if this deal works with pre-orders.

Thanks much, OP.

I'll certainly be in for L.A. Noire with that price match. I was tempted with sticking with the Gamestop pre-order for the bonus mission but I's much rather prefer saving some cash instead. I also have some holes to fill in for my Wii library so I'll be checking out some of the prices to see if I can take advantage of that B2G1 sale. Outside of Donkey Kong Country Returns, I'm not sure what else I'd want from there yet.

Yes it is on all colors, the Jungle Green Controller I've only seen at Gamestop as far as B&M stores. Our Best Buy never not a single one in, so I'm guessing you're S.O.L. on that.

I was wondering the same thing. I have searched and searched and can't find any info on the limited edition guide.

Well not too sure, the ad clearly states it. But yeah you can't really find a listing for it anywhere.

hmmm i wonder what color the wii/mario kart bundle is... if its the RED one im'a have to jump on it... dealbreaker!

The Wii/Mario Kart Bundle ONLY comes in Black and White with matching Wii Wheel. The Red Wii was a Mario 25th Anniversary which is crazy hard to find.

That is a sick ass deal for Wii games. Sadly the only Wii game that I would buy is the new DKC ($30 or less is my price).

I think best buy still has that dualshock plus game bundle for 35.you het a cheaper controler and a free game.and even of you have the game already you can still use it as trade bait.

so what's the deal here? If they're only offering a $10 GC in store, can't I just price match TRU's offer and just pay $45 instead of getting the gift card?

I do not give 1 fucks 2 fucks red fucks blue fucks yellow fucks I'm about my green bucks

I'ma make a scene for my green bucks, I'ma get some red on my nina

I thought that Brady Games cancelled the limited edition guide. Both Amazon and Gamestop have taken it down from their site.

Most of our stores do not have it. At least in the North East.

I don't think you'll ever see that for $30. Super Mario Galaxy, Wii Kart, Smash Bros. I think they are all still $50 at most places. I haven't even seen them on sale for $30! I saw these 3 plus Zelda:TP and Mario party game for $35 before Black Friday a couple years ago at BB and jumped on it for Galaxy and Zelda. With the B2G1 you pay $33 each and that's the cheapest I have seen them.

Nintendo titles for some reason never come down, at least not the popular ones. Flingsmash was going for $30 with the controller a week ago, but that game blows. If it's good you have to pay $30 or more, heck, these games go for $40 USED at GS!

Unfortunately, no, the deal does not work with pre-orders. I tried that with Black Ops, it was a no go. The item must be in stock or on its way and perhaps they might do a raincheck (depends on the manager's mood).

While this is true for the most part, Metroid: Other M and Kirby's Epic Yarn have hit the $10-15 range this past month, so there is still hope, especially after the new console is unveiled at E3 in a few weeks.
