whats this fixation on odin sphere. why is everyone talking so much about it. sorry if this isnt about this posted deal. just been seeing a lot of posts about this game and havnt figured out why.


Maybe because it's a really good game? I own all the next (current?) gen systems and played all the acclaimed titles, and Odin Sphere was still one of the best five games released last year, IMO... it gets bashed for being repetitive (and it is) and for having severe slowdown (which it definitely has at times), but it's also got simply beautiful 2d graphics (that upscale nicely on my 60gb PS3), a great soundtrack, wonderful voice acting, enjoyable gameplay, and a nifty story (you'll play through a certain period of time from essentially five different viewpoints, and those stories are each woven in such a way that it changes your perspective on the other stories).

I really adore the game and hope that the pseudo-sequel for the Wii actually makes it over from Japan.

I really need to find a copy of Capcom Classics Vol. 2. I hope one of my local stores has it in stock!

No luck in finding Dawn of Mana in my area. Most CCs are completely cleaned out.

Picked up:

Boogie DS for $6, doesn't look good, but maybe my daughter will have fun with it.
Star Trek Legacy X360 for $11.24. Missed it at the KMart clearance.

Was tempted to get a few more, but I just got Crackdown & Stranglehold at Target...

I knew I was waiting on that copy of Metal Slug Anthology (Wii) for a reason! Just picked it up for $11.36.


Thanks for mentioning the Metal Slug price...I'm a little late to the party here so to speak and just assumed that all the games that were clearanced in the past would be long gone. I grabbed a Metal Slug along with Marvel Ultimate Alliance for the Wii (would have preferred 360 but haven't had any luck finding one around me) TMNT 360, Power Pros PS2, Children of Mana DS, and Starfox Command DS. Oh yea, then I had my copies of Odin Sphere and Trauma Center price adjusted. I used to loathe Circuit City, my attitude may have changed.

$6, actually, for the Xbox version. I just picked one up today to replace our disc-only copy.

I went to CC, left with nothing. Figures that all the Clubhouse games and Odin Spheres disappear.

I found Mario Superstar Baseball ($6 + tax) and MLB Power Pros ($8.68 + tax). It's good to see that it isn't just Kmart and Sears that have no clue what is going on with clearance games and sales - both games were marked at full price. I don't know why I need two baseball games, but I can't pass up a good bargain! I was really hoping to find Mario Party 7, but no luck on that front. I might have to make a trip to another CC to see what I can find.

Does anybody know if any Capcom Collection for the PSP are on clearence???


I saw 1 of the PSP Capcom collection in the clearance bin but it had a x.x9 instead of x.x6 so I don't it's consider clearance.

My addiction to buying cheap games I otherwise had little interest in compelled me to purchase

Posted Image
Winning Eleven Pro Evo 07 -- 11.36
DDR Universe (game only) -- 11.36
TMNT -- 11.36

The only interesting/wierd thing was that the games were actually marked 11.36 (reflecting the 33% off the 16.96 clearance prices), although other games that I know are clearance weren't marked at all and had the original full-price tags. I'm scared my CAG-friendly CC is actually getting it's act together and marking things better so that cheap deals are more obvious. :cry:

Went to a CC near Tulsa Oklahoma. Only thing they had that was worth grabbing was one copy of Odin Sphere which I grabbed. Fortunately I'm on a cross-country roadtrip, so maybe I'll have better luck tomorrow in St. Lous.

umm yea tell that to the dumb ass manager on maryland parkway here in vegas. tried to price adjust some games and said it's only the games pictured in the ad. wouldn't scan any games to check. had some words. told him no problem will goto the sahara cc. got them price adjusted. even at the other store i got some attitude from the cs girl. i can't stand going to cc but it's hard to pass up these prices.


Yeah, same issue at the CC here in Culver City, CA on Sepulveda Blvd. The employees and the manager all said the 33% was for the games pictured (Ape Escape 3 and GBA video). Told them, why would it say "Titles vary by store" if it was for just those 2 titles. Needless to say, they are pretty clueless in there. Gonna check a different CC near my work instead.

Nothing too exciting for me. I picked up Ratatouille for Gamecube (only because it was one of the last releases) the two Naruto games, and Naruto Uzmaki Chronicles for the PS2. The latter is going back though, didn't realize it completely sucked, or kind of close at least.
I was hoping to pick up Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Riders. Figured 6 a piece wouldn't be bad, but I couldn't find any of them.

I found Magical Starsign (DS) at the Aventura Florida CC, with a $16.96 sticker, but it rang up as $6. It was the last one, so if you're nearby, don't bother looking there for it. YMMV.

I can tell you Odin Sphere is gone from the store near Metro North Mall in the northland and I didn't see much else from the list (maybe a copy of Paper Mario PC version for the cube). I thought about checking the store in Liberty but it's less than a year old so I bet their stock is probably too new to find the good clearance stuff.

Also I wonder if the store out south near Oak Park Mall has anything?

CC has a 'Gamers Savings Club' membership for $20 which gets you 10% off games, guide, and accessories for one year. Obviously, its only worth it if you spend at least $200 on those things at CC in a year.

I think at some point(s) they've included them with the purchase of a system or something.

My taito legends 2 came up at $9.99. That must have been a price drop, but not clearance.
