But at least it doesn't have crazy always online DRM like Ubisoft games or Diablo 3

Only some Ubi games kept the "Always online" DRM (HAWX 2 and Silent Hunter 5).
Many of them, it's activate once per PC...and that's it.

Need your help/opinions CAGers!

I was browsing a gaming shop (a small Mom & Pop store in my town) and I happen upon an used copy of PS1 Jade Cocoon: Story of the Tamamayu.

It was $20 and I heard (never played) great things about it and was going to totally buy it. But before making the purchase, I found out it was missing the manual. The case and CD are both in good condition but I wished it had the manual so it could be complete. (The completionist collector in me, I guess) For some reason, I also enjoy reading manuals of old games especially if they are done well (anyone remember the manual for PS2 GTA Vice City?).

So CAGer help please (especially those that know the game well), is $20 for the an old game & case (no manual) a deal or no deal?

Thanks guys/gals!


You can get one with manual on Amazon for around $32 shipped. On ebay for around $29.

So depends on how much you want the manual.

Yeah, that's the problem. It seems like a deal at $20 but buying so many cheap games from Steam and indie bundles (with the help of CAG) has spoiled me rotten. :cry:

I think I sold a copy of Jade Cocoon for $15 with only the CD in fairly rough shape, so that's not a bad deal. Not a great deal, but not bad.

Thanks, that helps. So is the game any fun and worth playing despite its age? (assuming you had played it before selling it)

For what it's worth, I used to own Jade Cocoon and I didn't really care for it. I wish I could give you an in-dept review, but honestly, I only have the vaguest memories of it. All I remember was that it was kinda of a Pokemon ripoff. Or at least, it had monster collector hook to it.

Generally speaking, I don't sell or trade in my games (still have all my Genisis & SNES games) but I had no trouble trading Jade Cocoon in to Gamespot shortly after I bought it. Too bad too. If I still had it lying around I'd probably just mail it to you.

Doesn't feel like Pokemon at all. It's interesting, but it is quite dated. Some people really like it, it didn't grab me.

Is it time for that pre-sale period where everybody adds each other on Steam yet?

Highlight ALL the deals you want. Amazon's site is terrible for browsing this stuff and I sure am not going digging for it. That said, $5 has been what I have been waiting for on Viking for a while. Thanks!


So true. And Vikings looks mighty nice at that price.

I was thinking about getting Viking too, but too many reviews stating that it's a shoddy console port and that there's a 30fps cap... really... I shall wait for the 75% mark.


d'oh!

Any guesses on the Winter sale meta-activities? I hope it's more than just flash sales again. Although the achievement coals were somewhat exploited, they did allow me to play through some games I probably would have never played otherwise. Plus I did get one game I wanted from the coal (even though it was only worth $1).
