Now here's one third-party game which seems to refuse to go below $39.99.

39.99 at GS... comes to about the same as amazon's price after tax. plus, you have it today if you find it near you: http://www.gamestop....?product_id=471

YOU'RE GOING TO A NIGHTMARE PROM!

Amazon actually had this down to $40 for almost a month, but recently increased the price back to above that level. As such, this really isn't a deal.

Not remotely close to the price I'd be willing to pick this up. I love RPGs and all, but this one I hear is definitely mediocre.

I wanted to buy one used with the 25% game stop coupon but none were local enough. I'm going to keep waiting for a better price enough though it seems to be hard to find in stores at this point.

Damn, this game just isn't dropping in price. Pity, as it's awesome and more people should play it. One of the most underrated games EVER. :)

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

This is another reason why I love having a Brandsmart in the area. Picked this up about 2 months ago for $8.88 on sale.

The game is definitely a little different. The one handed controls actually work fairly well and made it a good game or me to play when I was lazy and laying on the couch.

Just looks like my kind of game. I want to try it and have had it on my Goozex list forever, but not many folks seem to have bought it. I can get just about any game through Goozex, but this one -- I've been holding at the second spot for months now.

You know, that's sort of the game experience I've been wanting lately, and it's something that certainly puts purchasing a 360 in my head. I don't always want to sit fully alert gaming, arms ready to wiggle about. Like when I play my DS, I'm just kicking back. The Wii makes it hard to do that sometimes.

Anyhow, I've been watching this game for a while, but with my limited budget, I'm waiting for a $19.99 or lower price somewhere before I grab it.

They also have House of the Dead 2&3 Return at $19.99 to match CC's ad.

If any stores besides Gamestop had actually gotten this game, we would definitely be able to find it clearanced by now. I'm in the same boat as utopianmachine with not making any progress on Goozex.

One-handed play excites me.

Everyone else was saying it, so I had to join in.

My TRU has a stack of them sitting innocuously in the case. I'm waiting for when they inevitably get clearanced there since no one seems to be buying it.

I just saw that you can get it for about $25 on half.com:

Guys, just be patient. Distribution on this game wasn't all that limited. Toys R Us has them at both retail and on the web. So does Fry's and a bunch of other on-line and independent game shops. Worst case scenario, you can always buy this for $35 or so with tax when the B2G1 sale hits in mid-October at TRU.

yeah but "like new" doesn't thrill me. I need sealed (I'm a spoiled CAG)

This is really the only Wii game that I'm missing and which I really want to get my hands on.

Uh, didn't I point it out myself in the same post? With one hand?

I don't mind used, so the half.com deal is not bad for me, but like utopianmachine I am in line at Goozex and might wait it out a little longer.

They marked it up on Amazon, just FYI to anyone reading this.
