I saw these in the bargain bin at the local store and when I checked Brickseek I noticed that every store in the area had them for $9.88 each.  I had been waiting forever for Shadow Tactics to fall below $20 so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it for under $10.

There also may be more titles that were recently lowered to $9.88.  Post here if you find any more titles.

Added Tropico 5: Penulatimate Edition for XBox One.  Brickseek shows that all local stores that have it in stock have it for $9.88, so its likely universal across all Walmarts.

Shadow Tactics is definitely a hidden gem.

Shadow Tactics worth $10 or should I wait for $5?

I just want to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE strategy games. I'm very hungry to find such games. And I gave Shadow Tactics a legit shot. I stuck with it, tried to learn mechanics, everything. 

 

But my god the camera just breaks the game. It is just awful. Controls for console are equally frustrating. I believe anyone who wants to give this game a shot will be disappointed in due time. I would pass on it.

Shadow Tactics is pretty good, picked it up on a humble bundle deal

Awesome deals on all, thanks OP. I should be able to go to two stores and get all three.

It would be great if they could have a dump bin for value video games like they do for the $5.88 DVDs. But most of the discs would get stolen in the first week.

My local store actually does have one of these video game dump bins.  It's a $10 and under bin but usually it is only full of PS2 sports games, DS shovelware, and Duck Dynasty.  But yesterday I saw copies of Shadow Tactics and Vikings in it and thought they must have been misplaced.  Used a price scanner and sure enough they were under $10.  So, YMMV on the actual bin!

Mine did, but they got rid of it :(

I assume it was because people were just stealing the games.

Found the lone copy of Vikings for Xbox One that they had at my local store tonight. I remember Tropico 5 for Xbox One on clearance months ago there which is probably why it wasn't there tonight. But thanks for the tip on the games.

no vikings or shadow tactics at my wal mart despite brick seeker claiming they were there. thanks for the effort TC. i feel like we need a game wal mart brickseeker thread rather than that giant one that gets cluttered with all kinds of non-game deal talk.

 

I did find tropico 5 which i always wanted to play, and lately i've been going through the collection trying to get off the damn floor, and found tropico 5 on the 360 still sealed with all the DLC FML lol.

 

also probably not a deal, and i will probably regret it, but i bought brunswick bowling for 15 at that same wal mart. nothing else was clearanced really.

 

my all time favorite steal from that wal mart though was muramba the demon blade on the wii brand new for $1 lol

that brickseek system is so inaccurate.  I went to 2 wallys that showed 3 in stock  (each) but when I got there, there was nothing.  this is the last time I trust brickseek

Found the games at a Walmart with a really strange game setup. They double up the titles in the slots in the glass cases, so you have to read the tiny print on the shelf tags to see what's hidden behind the front game. Guess that's why they still had the cheap games in stock.

Walmart's electronics section is a cluster any day of the week. Games and DVDs are just thrown anywhere on the shelf where there is an empty slot, and the employees never know where anything is supposed to be located even if an item is in stock. In some cases, this is a good thing since other shoppers can't find things to buy them out from under you, but it can be frustrating to shop there or just mind-boggling. On a somewhat related note, I found an entire row of copies of Tokyo Mirage Sessions for Wii U priced at $59.88 cluttering up the clearance end cap last night.

It can be hard finding any game that's not part of the planogram.  They might be in the stock room, in a box under the counter, or buried behind other games at the bottom of the display case.

Yeah two of my local walmarts are backed up on games in the "bargain" area because they don't ever put things on clearance. Only once have they ever that I've noticed at one of them. At least universal clearances like this seem to transcend that.

Shadow Tactics is available in Piscataway NJ. Leftmost PS4 case, bottom shelf, middle-right. 2 copies left as of lunch.

There are a lot of games probably on clearance. Problem is that Wal-Mart is super understaffed and annoyed when you want to try some price checks. Thank you OP, I was able to pick up a copy of Shadow Tatics and Vikings as well as Marvel Pinball Collection all for $9.88 on PS4.

Here is the brickseek for the Marvel game:

yeah i've noticed wal marts around here since they remodeled have gotten especially bad with this.

 

so many 40-60 dollar games in the clearance bins.....then it sits there forever because no one wants to buy 4 year old stuff at full price.
