what a terribly fun game. i got it the week of release for $30 and it was totally worth it. WELL worth it for $15.

The gamecube version is only $9.98 if you can find it at your TRU.

Just a note for those who don't know:

backordered games at Gamestop.com are still orderable and exist in backorder status for maybe a week at most (if it is indeed backordered, as there is conflicting in-stock status reports).

I picked up a used, complete one earlier this week with the extra 10% off GI coupon, plus my GS discount card, $10.50 plus tax after the discounts. Nice game.

All right, I'll give it a try and ordered it. It would be awesome if it is in stock. I regret not picking it up for $10 win TRU was clearing them out last year.

Edit: It took a while but my ordered just shipped yesterday afternoon. Pretty OK deal, the game can be found at Bohemoth's website for $20 not including shipping. Also, if your TRU still has it, can be found for $10. Since my local TRU was liquidated, I rarely shop at TRU anymore.

I wouldn't buy this game for $30; I've been spoiled on Metal Slug, but it is excellent 7/8ths-ish Metal Slug.

And I did buy it for $20 a while back and do not regret it.

i found it fresh. Metal Slug is Metal Slug is Metal Slug, but this had a little extra silliness and kitsch. I actually prefer it.

I'd recommend waiting on the XBLA version. Cheaper and better.

version? or are you referring to Castle Crashers?
Being cheap doesn't mean you have to be a liar and a thief. Have some respect for yourself.

Which version is better, the ps2 or the cube? Or is there any real difference at all?

Picked it up PS2 a while ago for $10. Got a lot out of it, then traded it under the assumption I'd eventually get the GC version.

But indeed, now the planned XBLA version may be the way to go.

Picked up the last sealed GC copy for $15 at the 111th and Memorial GS in Tulsa, OK. They had 3 more "new" opened copies left on the shelf.

If there's anything I hate about EB/GS, it's their penchant to molest the video game and then still sell it as "new". In my mind, if it's been opened, it's not new. Last time I bought a "new" game from EB, the "new" disc had gunk and residue on the underside. I returned it for a sealed copy.

You'd think they could come up with a way to prevent shoplifting w/o having to remove the shrinkwrap.

Ordered the GC version, I've been wanting to get this for a long time and $15 new sounds good to me. Also no indication of it being backordered, instead it said it should ship within 24 hours.

This is a very cool game. It's not Metal Slug but it's got a lot of style and it's a lot of fun.

According to Gamespot.com, the two versions are identical.

Interesting thing about Alien Hominid is that you can appreciate it even if you don't like Metal Slug or Contra. That mini-game is a fun little puzzle/platformer and has many levels. You could get the game for that alone and get your money's worth

bought this for the cube the week it came out. for $15, it's a steal.

the PDA games are great party minigames, too.
