Why exactly is the retail price $69.99?

After being mildy disappointed with River City Ransom after putting a whopping 10-minute bathroom session into it, I'm not so sure if I want to shell out $14 for this one now...then again, I do have a high level of history with Double Dragon. I think I'll procrastinate on this one for a few...

Damn, with S&H and tax for me, "Double Dragon" came out to $15.66. I suppose that's still a good deal after Price Grabber rebate. I've never done a PG rebate before, but now would be a good time for my first.

This game is pretty hard to find new for under $20, and I've only seen it at eb games a few times, so even with the high S&H, it's worth picking up.

I got "Space Channel 5" for GBA during the $4.99 Circuit City sale, and would say that's about all it's worth. It's extremely pixelated and the voices that made the Dreamcast version so good are not there. Worth $5, but not $10 + S&H in my opinion.

Thanks to the OP for the deal info and links!

Anyone on the fence about Double Dragon Advance don't be...It takes everything from the original and updates it a bit. There are some great moves added to the fighting system, some new enemies, and the overall art style of the game is updated. I was really worried I wouldn't find it after awhile but I managed to get a copy around $20. It was worth every penny. I am also a big fan of the original game so I was kind of unsure until I played it.

Thanks for the heads up, OP!

I remember stealing a roll of quarters from my dad's secret stash when I was 12 or 13, and I blew them all on the Double Dragon arcade machine down the street from where I lived. Ahh, I would love to own a DD arcade cabinet.....someday it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

Is this game good on the GBA? I thought the arcade was ok and $10 is a good price for this...

EDIT: Ign review: http://gameboy.ign.c...0/440046p1.html
I am gonna hold off, they say its a damn short game and some of the gameplay mechanics just dont wont....

yeah, for the price of space channel 5 (or even less), you could get the ps2 edition with both games, which are nearly identical ports to the dreamcast originals

anyone looking for a portable version of space channel 5 would be better suited with that one level in feel the magic xy/xx

I dunno what it is about Double Dragon for GBA, but I wasn't a big fan of it. I liked the NES version a whole lot more.

As, soon as I saw the topic on the front page, I bit... DD is getting hard to find, new even more so. and finding a legit copy, complete for less than 9.99 is unfathomable

I loved this game on the GBA. Probably one of my top ten favorite GBA games because it does such an excellent job of mixing the old with the new and the amount of moves and different ways you can approach fights is just great. Definately worth picking up if you like the genre, as IMO it pretty much outclasses everything else

Sold about 40 copies within 12 hour period. Still have about 520 copies left.

That's a pretty cool trick, I've seen other CAGers do it too. Care to teach us the way?

EDIT: It wouldn't be "enter 999 into shopping cart and see how many are available" (515 as of now), would it? It couldn't be that simple, could it?
