Picked up Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2. Wanted to get Civilization Revolution as well, but apparently someone else got there before I did. Now I got to pay attention to the tracker online everyday.

Sweet. I'll probably use this to rebuild some of my Gamecube collection that I sold last semester, and afterwards regretted...

lol, that's awesome.

What exactly is in the Master Quest? I picked up The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition and saw the Ocarina/Masterquest one, but didn't know what went into it.

I picked up Bust a Move and Cranium for $20.11 and flipped for $43.xx

I'm happy, though the stupid BBV manager didn't put the credit on my card and instead put it in the store.

it seems like a reworked/remixed version of ocarina where dungeons are harder etc.

Honestly, I bought them because I love Zelda and I'm a collector.

Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap - $16.24


My math may be off but how are you getting Minish Cap for $16.24? My math has it coming out to $18.xx.

Also, thanks OP! I'll definitely be using it on Minish Cap and maybe Pikmin 2. Luckily the store down the street has both. Too bad they don't have The Rub Rabbits, too... :(

Minish Cap is $24.99 used. With Edge (10%) + Coupon (25%) that makes it 65% of $25, which is around 16.25 + tax.

By any chance, did you use an edge card with that? or just a coupon?


So did gamestop have a 50 percent off on most gamecube games?

From wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia....Ocarina_of_Time

Under Re-releases and Sequels:

Ocarina of Time was re-released for the Nintendo GameCube in the Ocarina of Time: Master Quest and The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition compilation discs as an emulated ROM.[30][31] Ocarina of Time: Master Quest started as an expansion to Ocarina of Time to be used with the Nintendo 64DD under the working title Ura Zelda.[32] The Master Quest compilation was given as a premium for pre-ordering The Wind Waker in Japan and North America,[33] as well as in a special GameCube bundle at Wal-Mart. In Europe and Australia the disc came in the same case as the initial pressings of The Wind Waker.[34] In Europe it was available for a limited time through a special offer on the Nintendo website. The Ocarina of Time: Master Quest box contains a single disc which includes the original game, the Master Quest version, and six video demos for various games for the GameCube including one for The Wind Waker and a video demo of the GBA re-release of A Link to the Past.[29] Master Quest uses the same engine and plot of Ocarina of Time, but dungeons have been rearranged.[29]


I played through it a while back, think of it as the 2nd quest in the original Zelda, same overworld map, but items are in different places and dungeons are different and a bit harder. Sorry I don't remember much more. I did get mine for subscribing to Nintendo Power at the time.

As for the coupon, I'll be on the search for a good copy of Pikmin 2 and Eternal Darkness (each one I find are either torn up, scratched, or no case), debated about the Res Evil 2-3 and Code Veronica, but the Dreamcast versions are fine by me.

I picked up a mint condition copy of it with the %10 edge + %10 coupon that knocked it down to 27ish yesterday. Little sadden about the new coupon that probably was posted minutes after I left.

Well, you'd be saving another 15%.

15% of $34.99 off the top of my head is $5.25.

What is $5.25 to you? And please, tell me if my math is wrong.

Got FFIV DS for 22 bucks. Awesome!

There was only one copy within ten miles. When I picked it up, the clerk said that he had been the one that traded the game in. :)
