What is this crush 3d game you guys keep talking about? The cover looks like shovelware

 

Yeah, there are lot's of retailers that you would never guess sale games. Often times it's not nationwide, so only certain stores may actually sale games. Often times it's not big business, so they'll consolidate inventory the the busiest or most profitable locations, and if your in a not so great area, you might never see games locally. I've been going to Khols for years, and never knew they sold games until I saw them here.

 

 

No joke.  They even had Arkham City on the Wii U for $6 along with some PS3 and 360 games.  I picked up Disney Sing It for my son for $10 with mic.  

 

 
 

:lol: I'd never heard of it either, but if there are any * Mama series completionists out there, get to it!

 

well i'll be damned, thats weird but good to know, thanks guys.

Ya places like Big Lots , Family Dollar and chain places like that have video games. Usually mostly cheap shovel ware but sometimes you can find good stuff. I once found some dragon quest titles for $10. Finished my collection and gifted the others.

Not sure why all the hate for your post, I guess people are taking what you said personally?  To each their own.  Me personally, I try to wait for extreme sales (BOGO, 50% off, etc.) before I start considering buying a 3DS game.  Unless it's a limited LE (like Majora's Mask), then I jump on it like a spider monkey.


I am like you as well. $2 off a title no one ever plays doesn't seem like a deal to me. But it's just my opinion like I said. I knew people would be mad but I don't mean to hurt those people feelings that quoted me. Some even went and found gifs to post because it hurt their feelings so much.
But just like u chandler bong, I love a great deal

I was not throwing any shade your way.

This thread is to help people find cheap 3DS games.

Cheap to you maybe different to another person.

Know it's not the best deal because it is normally $29.99 but Mario Golf World Tour is an amazing Mario Golf title and it is $25.99 ($20.79 after GCU). Been losing hours playing golf.

Sears has a similar deal.

 

Mario Golf:World Tour for $19.99

http://www.sears.com...=1&blockType=G1

 

 

I had a coupon from Sears and bought it two weeks ago, like a fool, for $6 more. I haven't even unwrapped it yet, but figured I'd share how to get a good deal.

 

There's a couple ways to go about this: It's showing up available for shipping so you can price match at various retailers. Or if you have a Shop Your Way Max account (you can sign up for a free trial) it will ship for free.

 

Also to make it better, if you have a Shop Your Way Rewards account (free to sign up) check it for a coupon they randomly give out that is for $10 off a $20 purchase. Pop a filler item into your cart like: 2-IN-1 Stubby Camoflague Screwdriver - $0.97 or Craftsman 4 in 1 Slotted Screwdriver Keychain -  $0.99 Choose in-store pick up for your filler item and let the game ship. Your total should be just under $11 before tax :D/

(Don't forget to eventually pick up your filler item from sears. Don't know if they penalize you for not picking up your stuff)

 

Ugh, it looks like fun. I wish I had time to play games. I have a whole shelf-worth of em' I've barely played and all I can tell myself is someday! :-({|=

Rune Factory 4 to get to the ending isn't crazy long. Pretty fun game overall and I need to go for that end game content myself.

This game has been eluding me on AMZ WH deals for some time.  I'm hoping for a little luck to jump on one, but have been beaten to the punch for quite some time.

Best Buy has Style Savvy - Trendsetters for $13

http://www.bestbuy.c...cat235500050004

 

it's supposed to be a pretty good shop sim even though it looks like 'game for girls' shovelware at first glance

Style Savvy is amazingly deep and very addicting. Def not shovelware. The art direction is stellar, options endless, and the resource management is fun. Highly rec'd and this from a guy who bought it for his daughters and ended up playing it more than them. It's a hidden gem.

Its a price match against Best Buy's 2-day sale. If you have GCU Best Buy is the better deal at $28.00.

Figured this would be a decent place to ask: Anyone know a good 3ds cart continer/carrier? My niece is starting to get a decent little collection so id like to pick something up for her to store her games so she doesn't lose them. She never puts them back in the case so i was going to just keep the cases at my place and have her keep the carts in some kinda card storage carrier thing. Just dont know where to look/what a good one is. Id like somethign that holds a couple dozen or so at least preferably. Any ideas?

The Hori 24 is just about the best out there: 

 

I have one for my 3DS and two for my Vita. As stated above, the Club Nintendo ones are excellent as well, but may not be available to you unless you participate in the program.

This.  Those are the two best options out there.  If you have 400 coins the CN one is fun and comes with swappable Pikmin/Bowser/Mario covers.

Didn't realize they had card holders on there. Just ordered the Mario/Pikmin one, thanks for the heads up.

Agreed. Although I found the hori ones a bit hard to open, at least in the clear color.

I think, for whatever reason, the clear colored ones are made differently from the smoke color and it is missing an extra bit of plastic on the tab to open the case. You really have to dig your finger under the flap to open it,which isn't pleasant.

So if you get her the Hori one, get the smoke color.

Crazy to think that the developer of Style Savvy (AKI) is the same company that developed WCW vs NWO World Tour, WWF No Mercy & the first two Def Jam wrestling games from EA.  I've been on the fence buying Style Savvy due to the subject matter (fashion etc), but if it gets cheap enough, who knows :)

Style Savvy: Trendsetters was one of the best $20 I spent at the time (one of those buy 2 get 1 free deals). I put 40-50 hours into the game and I had a lot of fun. The graphics are good and customizing the shop and the customers who came were great. I really hope the new one is a great one and I hope it gets localized...likely next year if that happens.

really? I didn't knew AKI was still around. N64 wrestling games were awesome thanks to them.

Not a joke the game is quality. I like some girly things and all but the gameplay and characterization were well done. Plus man the redhead girl I was playing was was very hot and also fashionable.

Yeah Style Savvy is great.  A fun store management game that has an usually surprising sense of character and humor to it.  I don't think skeptics will be turned onto it.  You already know if you want to play it if you're interested.  I grabbed a copy when it was less than $10 randomly one summer and I was very happy with it.
