Pretty much. It's got everything the original game had plus more. I think the Japanese version gives you bonuses if you had save data from the original Ragnarok Odyssey (could be wrong), but I'm not sure if that's going to apply for us.

With the upcoming expansion/1.5 and all the bad reviews, Ragnorok Odyssey should be $20, max.

well the Arkham City GOTY art was pretty bad...so I wouldn't but it past them.

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

The core game is fun I think. I poured 20 hours into, however haven't completed it yet. (Lots of grinding opportunities for items.)

I am definitely going to pick up Ace when it becomes available. (Especially if it comes out with another collectors edition).

Wow I never heard about that. I never got into the game...can anyone recommend it? If so I guess I'll hold out for this updated version

What is with EA constantly dropping all their games to $39.99 two weeks after release?

I imagine sales are not as good as they are expecting. However, I am sure retailers got the games on the cheap for their Bulk orders and allows them leeway for sales such as this.

Underperforming sales. Although EA management will surely deny it, it's probably in large part due to fan reaction to their ultra shitty business decisions such as DRM and microtransactions.

I would have gotten Dead Space 3 at launch, but because of the microtransaction business model I still haven't considered picking it up. And don't even get started on Sim City.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

It might have something to do with sales but I think this is just something they have adopted for the majority of their launches over the last 2-3 years. Even Battlefield 3 hit $40 shortly after despite a spectacular launch.

Finally, Ragnorok Odyssey dropped in price. Too bad it's not $20 or I would have jumped on it.

EA is the new Ubisoft for MSRP drops on almost everything except their biggest hit titles, and even those drop pretty quickly at least for a short time.

They had a similar placeholder for Arkham City when it was first announced, we should see the real cover within a few months when more details are released.

The only good thing I saw in this ad was the reminder that Soul Hackers comes out tomorrow...might have to pick it up.

Isn't AC Ubi's biggest hit? I think the problem here is that EA doesn't have an annualized 'biggest hit' except for maybe FIFA or Madden.

I've been so on the fence about soul hackers. With soul sacrifice and an ongoing monster hunter fixation, I'm probably gonna skip this one for now.

Not surprising, a JRPG released at this point on the Wii (which is for all intents and purposes a dead system) is the definition of a niche game. Main reason why I have mine preordered, because it's a safe bet that they aren't going to print very many copies of that one.

That is a good point I just paid mine off today

Paid mine off today as well and they said they have no idea when they will get their copies in. Hopefully this week though.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks Hydelloon (OP) for the link. Nothing for me. I've spent enough on the 50% Selected Used Games sale. My wallet needs a rest.

Dat red chrome 360 controller. Unf. Too bad it's $54.99, that's pretty expensive when I've already got four working controllers.
