If SMG is there, i'm guna be so pissed. I just got that for retail.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Don't feel too bad. Nintendo games never really drop and they're worth it anyway.

That's nuts. I would love some of those great first party games, although I expect most of it will be stuff like Wario: Master of Disguise. Still, it's hard to find 10 bad Nintendo games that are in the current gen.

Damn thats a lotta deals. Even Lotta Hart could agree to that.
Too bad im over my budget for the year, but I've been waiting for a deal on NEW Super Mario Bro's since It's friggin' release.

It's just that simple.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but can you price adjust a previously purchased game to one of these lightning deals or deal of the day?

Mad props for squeezing in a Phoenix Wright reference there, Monsta Mack...also, if GHDS was in there somewhere, that would be sweet...isn't it only first-party games, though?

If they are all first-party...I probably have them already. :l

Here's hoping for...a super cheap Super Paper Mario?

Deal of the day, yes-- it's just a regular price drop like any other. Lightning deals I'm not so sure. When you put a lightning deal in your cart it shows at full price, and the discount is applied separately at checkout. But it's worth a try.

since Amazon said nintendo icons, I'm thinking it'll have to involve nintendo franchise characters. Link, Mario, Kirby, Yoshi, Pokemon, Samus, Wario, etc. But I could be wrong,.

Ah, so you want to bequeath all of your first party Nintendo games to your descendants?

I want Mario Kart.

Me too. That's the only first party Nintendo game that I don't own... at least that I can think of.
My games, DVDs, and feedback.

I have yet to find Fire Emblem for cheap, and I would probably spring for it if it was $30 or less.
I get a ton of Wii points from Points2Shop for free. I bet you wish you did too.
