Why would anyone truly need a strategy guide for a game like Splatterhouse?

This thread is actually pretty good since not many of us can get penny guides (not once in my cAG life ever encounter penny guides), thanks OP. I'm not sure I want any of them yet, can't get free shipping, lol.

It's worth it to find the collectibles in Splatterhouse. They unlock diary pages as narrated by the villainous Dr. West as he descends into Lovecraftian insanity. His direction is a little off in places but man, the guy hits every note between pensive mad scientist and mad psycho on a quest to resurrect That Which Should Not Be Named with pitch perfect accuracy. However he is delivering the lines he sounds GREAT. They are easily worth 1000ing the game.

I still really liked Splatterhouse as a game but man it is rough. Almost every late game miniboss needed a bit more work to be more fun to fight like the early mooks and bosses

I've been using this great guide to find the pictures of Jenny. Are the pictures of Jenny in the guide? Like a gallery?

Since alot of people here arent as lucky as i am when it comes to penny guides i suggest that we have an amazon cheap guide mega thread. These are great for filler to get the 25$ super saver shipping and if you have prime these are even better !

If you want to create the mega thread, I can link to it and lock this thread. Or I can make the first post a wiki and change the title accordingly.

Also, added Sonic Colors.

You might as well change the title and wiki it. When someone finds a great price for a guide or when a guide in the op dropped more we can post/change it

Got Gears 3 and MW3 for $6 total. I miss penny guides, but at least I don't need to use gas and hope I find stuff and don't get denied the sale.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

For those looking for cheap guides, Hastings has a lot of used ones in good condition. After their promo codes, you can get many of them for just a few dollars with very cheap shipping. I went a little crazy and got a bunch over the past few months (probably about 15-20 in all). All of them were in very good to excellent condition.

Do bb price match game guides?
