Target.com show Etrian Odyssey is sold online only.


It actually says it's unavailable and not sold in stores but that's not indicative of much based on other things with their site. For example see Heart of the Swarm which has the same status but myself and others found just fine. What's more telling is that no one's actually seen come across it.

Slightly OT, but what does it mean "[With Microsoft Points]"

How many MSP is included? I've never heard of MSP being included in Dance Central.

They give you a code for about 160 points. Just enough to buy one song.
I guess they're hoping you'll want to buy more.

I bought Midway Arcade Origins, Lollipop Chainsaw (both 360) and Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational (Vita) for $40 total along with the last light blue Skylanders Wii system for $99.00 last night. I'm going to hit another Target to see if I can find more decent $20 games for a similar deal.

(For anyone unaware, a G by a Monster Hunter game means it's had an expansion pack of sorts applied to it)

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is, content wise, a direct port of Monster Hunter 3G, which has been out on the 3DS for a fair spell. It's a solid port though, I mean 1080p (wish they'd have locked the FPS to 30, though), online play, can't complain especially if you're a series fan and own a Wii U. If you mean against vanilla 3 though, then yeah, it's an expansion pack. Kind of a meek one though if you're not a Nintendo-come-lately fan, since most of what they did is add back in the content they removed in the first place trying to "reboot" the series which blew up in their faces.

I've a bit burnt out with Monster Hunter currently, though, so I think I'll just wait for a price drop. They've kinda dumbed it down too much with recent entries and in general I always felt 3 was a big step back from 2G, and I don't think 3G will fix it. 4 is what I'm really waiting on, looks like the shot in the arm the series very much needs, as opposed to 3's revisions, which were mostly gutting the content and weapons and adding lousy water combat.


Do not understand some of the things you said , but have played the mh tri on the wii first then the psp entrys. I love tri more (and this is the enchanced port of it). So im guessing ill be happy and in love with mh ultimate

The first taste is free, then you have to pay.

As far as the skylanders go it seems like the big ones are going through but the normal ones arent. It wasnt working yesterday so hopefully it got fixed. Im glad i barely work this week cause some people are just crazy when it comes to those things. It also doesnt help since all the normal and big ones are under one DPCI so i get those guests that say why dont u have this character it says u have it in stock. Its gonna say we have them in stock till we are totally out.


I hate that.

Not you, just how the generic UPC is handled. I've done the samee thing, and there is nothing on the website to make me think anything other than "it says this specific thing is in stock." Also had how Granite Crusher banners are still out and him still being findable in the system despite him being discontinued forever. If we'll never see him again, take that down and quit getting my hopes up.

I'm with you. If they don't have it anymore why have advertisements for it. Kind of like Gamestop displaying 7 empty boxes of Xenoblade Chronicles and they had one copy that sold ages ago.

It's a good thing I went right when Target opened, my store only had two copies of MH3 WiiU; got that along with Tomb Raider and Gears.

Asking one more time before I head up there...sorry; but what is the best way I can get Luigi's Mansion 2 in on this deal? I was thinking of getting 2 full priced 3DS games, and Starcraft 2 HOTS, then returning one of the 3DS games on Sunday (the deal will be over then) and picking up LM2.


You can't get Luigi's Mansion 2 at a discounted price w this deal.
Even if you exchange your filler next week, you still need to pay the difference between the two games.
Wait for a different sale.

I heard lego got delayed a few days or something... But monster hunter should be in stores shelves now. Target online finder sucks

No, according to the small print Lego City will not be out until tomorrow (Wed). As a smartass employee pointed out to me. I hate this release date BS where companies try to stand out by releasing on odd days instead of Tuesday. Seems stores other than Target are selling it though so maybe it was a typo or they wanted to split up the new releases because of the B2G1 making it too easy with new releases.

The inventory status on their site has shown Lego City popping up at Targets in my area throughout the morning. I suspect they are arriving today. Although, given that their ad says "Wednesday", who knows if they'll bother putting them out.

Picked up Lego City Undercover, Fire Emblem Awakening and NSMB2 (wanted Monster Hunter but they didn't have them, possibly due to weather related issues and their delivery, this was in Massachusetts).

Local stores still haven't gotten in Lego City, said to try back after 2pm.

Nonchalantly asked at the Best Buy next door if they'd PM and got the official answer of 'Not for B2G1 free', which is their policy so no complaining, but was really hoping.

Just hope my local Target still has Ni No Kuni when I go back to pick up LCU.
The battle's done, and we kind of won, so we sound our victory cheer

Checked one of my local Targets and they had two Monster Hunter 3 for Wii U and only one for 3DS. I was hoping to get one for Wii U and two for 3DS. I left the store empty-handed.

I'm debating whether or should go back and pick one of each up and get some random $40 game for free. :/

Yes to both. My local store had four copies of the 3DS version and three of the WiiU at 8am this morning. They hadn't received Lego City yet or at least hadn't gotten to that box yet.

My local store (State College, PA) doesn't have any Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U. I was going to pick up that, Lego City, and either Ni No Kuni or Fire Emblem or Castlevania. I might still pick up Lego City, Ni No Kuni and Fire Emblem, but I was really looking forward to MH3.

I might try to get Best Buy to PM, but I doubt they'll go for it.

Brandermill Target in Richmond, VA had MH3 Wii U in stock this morning. Did not see the :3ds: version.
Preordered Gears when Fire Emblem came out.
Picked up this morn:
Tomb Raider :360:
Gears: J
God of War Ascension
Got a $5 gift card for preordering Gears, in addition to the B2G1.
In a separate transaction, used the gc to snag a Jade Flashwing, which was restocked and plentiful.

Was the Tomb Raider a steelbook case?

For those wondering, my store had Monster Hunter for the 3DS, I didn't check for the Wii U.

My store didn't have DoA5+, bit of a bummer. Maybe I can find a different Target store that does. I'm just trying to expand my Vita collection >.>
