Stormrise I believe the story was lots of bugs and then the developer pretty much abandoned fixing it because of the publisher. Think thats it in a nutshell. I have avoided and will continue to avoid, RTS experience on consoles isn't important enough to suffer through a frustratingly poor game.

I will be in for Heroes Over Europe 360 if it comes back in stock at 9.99.

Also maybe Sega Rally Revo. Don't think I have that one yet. Think I saw it at Shopko a long time ago for 14.99 but passed.

Also picked up GI Joe for $9.99, if nothing else the gives the nephews another coop game.

Damn - $7 for BC? That's like a sammich. Even if it's not the greatest game ever I can't pass it up.

If you like to hunt down achievements stay as far away from Sega Rally Revo as you can. It truly is one of the most difficult games I have ever played in any category. If you don't care about achievements you will still find the game to be frustratingly difficult.

So, what are everyone's take on Singstar (PS3)? Its got pretty good reviews across the bored and I do enjoy making a spectacle outta' myself, but my main concern is will it be able to use and USB mic like the one that come with Rockband (360) or will I have to shell out for that separately?

You CANNOT use the Rockband USB mics with Singstar. You will have to get the actual Singstar mics. The game is fun especially if you have a camera hooked up since it records your performance and has some minor editing features.

I like Singstar but these are my main gripes. These are the three negatives I have for it.
1) Any Rap song or song that list Rap in Genre (i.e. Ting Tings) are terrible... there is no way to really do them... I know some of these songs by heart and I cant break 4000 on any of them (normal singing song I average 7500)
2) Singstar US love is atrocious... recently it seems we don't get updates anymore (or at least we didn't get the last one which was fairly large for the UK)... the only way around this is to
create a UK account and import in UK PSN cards (something I dont do)
3) Disc Swapping - If you want to play songs from other discs, you have to disc swap. You cannot save them to the hard drive. Some disc songs are not available via download so you are forced to disc swap. If only they would have taken the Rock Band approach.

Like user above me said, you are forced to Singstar mics so the Rock Band mic will not work.

Ah, I guess I'll pass on it then. Thanks to the both of you.

Wrong price on alien syndrom for psp. Its 7.99 not 4.99. I was going to get it for 5 bucks, but dont think its worth 8.

Fuckshit, I have really been wanting to try Stormrise even though I don't play RTS' very often, but I've heard that it's just different enough and this might be the price that gets it for me.

It's garbage. Muddy, indistinct graphics, horrible, boring gameplay that quickly gets too hard.

I'm a fan of scrolling fighters, but spyborgs is sub-NES graphics and gameplay for the genre.

What is up with the prices of the PS 3 games listed on the thread? All of them now are listed much, much higher on their web site. Is the sale over?

Prices go up and down constantly at newegg. It has nothing to do with a sale. They just tend to sell some games cheap every now and then.

Bionic Commando is at $5.99 right now.

A bunch of the prices in the OP need updated.

As Virsago stated, Newegg prices fluctuate. To get true game prices, just go to the video game system's page and sort the games by Lowest to Highest Price.

I posted a full 360 games update on page 4 (six days ago), and now several of the games have been removed or the prices have changed.

Currently playing:
:xb1: ARK
NBA 2K; Battlefront

$6 for Bio Commando???

Hell, I already rented and beat the game but I couldn't dare pass it up at that price.

I've bought it twice now, once at $8.99, once at $6.99, and probably gonna get it now at $5.99, although I wish a few other games would drop in price, like Alone in the Dark, Stranglehold, or Eat Lead.

^ I'll buy it again for the PS3 if I was to see it cheap enough (Have RE:armed on the PS3 and I think they have some unlocks if you have both.).

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.
