I was tempted to pick up a copy or two of Hidden & Dangerous for the PC for $.29 each just to have some coasters for the house, but then I realized that .29 is .28 too much for that game.


Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it. It's obviously dated, but I thought it was certainly worth a dollar.

Finally got around to picking up a copy of Namco Museum and picked up a Wavebird while I was down there. The clerk commented that the Wavebird lasted a total of 2 hours. =P

Got a sealed Namco Arcade Museum for $10.

Anyone have any thoughts on that game? $10 is fine, but the games... do they justify the $10 purchase? I've already got the Arcade Unplugged disc ($5) a while ago.

I too bought it (two copies) for $.99. While I haven't got around to playing it yet, it's hard to complain about a $1 investment. For $.29, it may just be the best gaming value ever (shy of free) lol! :lol:

I didn't buy a copy though, I thought about it, but I don't play PC games enough to bother with buying one.

I'm generally not a fan of turn based games, but I *love* Civ Revolution on the DS. The graphics are nothing to write home about, but the variety of winning conditions is extremely compelling.

Got a sealed FES without even needing to ask. I forgot to grab H&D though, it would have at least been worth the $.29.

Cool is it like any of the Civ games on PC?

! I envy you.

I nabbed the last copy at the Denton, TX Gamestop. I even asked the guy about a sealed copy and he said he had no more sealed copies. Was kinda bummed but I wasn't about to turn down a $15 RPG that claims to have 100-something hours of gameplay.

I'm still not sure how I'm going to get 100 hours out of it...but its one of the best and more obscure and unique RPGs I've touched in a while. It reminds me of TWEWY for the DS....

I went to GS because I was going to pick up Resident evil 5 Limited editon for $45 (50% off), but they pulled the copies off the floor and told me the game days sale is over. The one guy said it is supposed to go until Saturday closing, but their manager told them to remove the sale items. He scanned the RE5, but it rang up at 89.99.

I was at gamestop 2 or 3 days ago and they had the collector's edition of RE5 (yes with the figure/bag/etc) as well as Brothers in Arms collector's edition for 50% off. Both on the PS3.

I didn't want to wait in line, so I went back today and they were full price again. The game days display was down as well. They also had Valkyria Chronicles for 29.99 (gutted) but it was also not on sale anymore.

That really sucks. You would have saved $75 if you just spent the time. Oh well. When things are too good to be true it is good to act right away.

YEah.. those of you that are saying they saw REs 5 CE for 50% were either tripping or fooled by the fact that people do put things int he wrong places.
I have worked for gamestop for 6 years.... A game like that for that price was never put at 50%.... It may have been in the bin... but it was not $49.99.

NOw... About this metal gear geadset... where did you hear this?

It had a 50% off sticker on the front of it and the employee acknowledged it was 50% off the other day. I can not seem to find the limited edition on the gamestop website either. There is proof of the metal gear bluetooth on another thread (ie: receipt).

Oh and there were 3 in the tight fitting bin all with 50% off stickers (not one that had a pile of games in it like other gamestops I went to. I remember thinking "is it worth it?" because these were $90 to begin with, so it is still pretty expensive for a game that didn't do as well as expected. I figured it would drop again since itis supposed to be a final clearance sale.

Sounds like the RE5 price was a mistake... I can wait on a better deal in the future...
Picked up FF 1&2 Psp, and the Namco disc

Aw man, I paid a whole dollar for Hidden & Dangerous 2! If I had waited I'd have saved 70 cents! :(

I still saw the 50% bin out and still had a few games. I didn't take much of a look, but it was definitely still going on.

I wish gamestop still carried older video game stuff. In the mid-2000's they started selling again, then they got rid of it all. Sigh...


Play N' Trade.

I recently picked up a beautiful copy of the seriously underrated "Sheep Raider" for PS1 at a Play N' Trade, and I finally grabbed a copy of "Adventure" and "Astro Blast" for my Atari 2600.

I can confirm the CE's were indeed 50% off at my local Gamestop. I picked up RE5 CE, Fallout 3 CE, Saint's Row 2 CE, Brother in Arms CE, GTA 4 CE for X360...and Resistance 2 CE for PS3. Helluva haul IMO.

I just picked up a copy of Chrono Trigger for $29.99. But I did notice a few other games that were on sale not on sale anymore. I.E. the guitar hero games, and FFT for the psp.

So i dont get it.... is this final clearance everything is 50%? because alot of those mentioned items wernt even in the gameday sale, so they are just random 50% off items that werent previously included in any sales?

They were clearing out collector editions for the titles I was able to grab. I was surprised, given how popular most of these titles are (RE5, Fallout 3, GTA 4, Resistance 2!). Turns out the CEs are apparently discontinued, hence the sweet price..doesn't make much sense to me either..
