Maybe? This is the Police looks like a good management sim with a crazy story.


Yeah but both of them have kinda awful reviews so I removed them from my cart. On metacritic that is and the few sites on there that I agree with didn’t seem to enjoy them much. It’s probably for the best though o could have got the two for $16.

I got everything when they went up last night but cut out a few like the police ones. Did I make a poor decision?


Starscream making poor decisions? I'm not surprised.

Gotta be honest here, and I dont meant to put down anyone without bias, but i call bogus on this sale

The only 2 games “worth” getting at de blob 1 and 2, and guess what?

The only title sold out, OH except for - um yeah, the WIERDEST, most simplistic, non-next-gen, post-modernist-retro-next-gen [sim??] game ive ever seen in my life: the police....like did anyone look into that game in the past? Because I checked it out on release, because I thought it might be the “good guy” version of GTA, and when I saw the gameplay I actually kept staring at the screen like “wuhhhhh?”

So I think its just to get people in the door, and you know how that goes once your there... like kids at the checkout line at grocery store lol

Anyway, BBY sucks!

I was awake at 3:00 am this morning and thought about checking the Best Buy deals but was like nah I’m going to bed. Woke up and seen this at 8:30 this morning and seen almost all sold out. I was able to snag Titan Quest and Unwritten Tales. I wanted Spinx but alas it was not meant to be.

Despite the cheap THQ games, I really have no reason to want to buy them.  On the other hand, Salt and Sanctuary (physical) for $16 seems like a great deal for me and a clear pickup.

Any guess if any of these will be back in stock before the prices are raised? Was wanting to get TitP 1 and 2 and Gal Metal before they sold out.

Had a bunch of these games in my cart, then I realized there's zero chance I'm spending any time playing De Blob over Sekiro and other great titles I've yet to complete. I assume many of you are in the same boat and these will stay in your shelves unplayed.

Flippers were all over this. Every single $10 game in the OP except Unwritten Tales and Raven that my store had went to fulfill a single order.  :bs:

I hope it was me, and that you packed them with care.

Damn would have loved to have gotten a few of those $9.99 games, but literally, every one of them is sold out or not available anywhere near me.

I hate to be a shill (and I’m no plant, I’ve been here for more than a decade) but as someone who worked on TItP 2 (very tangentially), I wanna toss out a recommendation based on the story and acting. Let’s face facts, these games’ management and tactics gameplay aren’t going to win any awards. And while it’s well-publicized that the game stars the legendary voice of Duke Nukem, Jon St. John, most of the other characters are voiced by members of the professional theatre community in and around Buffalo, NY (myself included). Most of us don’t often get the chance to work on a game like this (like, with an actual publisher!) and it was a ton of fun for myself, and some of the city’s most talented actors, people who I’ve worked with on stage for years.

The dialogue is well-written and there’s a TON of story here. So if that sort of thing interests you, and 10 bucks isn’t too high a threshold for you to take a chance on a game that’s only interesting for the story, well... I’m really proud of the acting work that me and my friends did on this game. We’ve all been paid and have no vested interest in whether or not it sells, but I’d love it if people checked out our work.

Soapbox done! Hope the games are actually still in stock by now ;)

Sphinx and the cursed mummy is such a random game to remaster...

Thanks for the information. I am also in Buffalo and did not know about this local connection. The more you know.

I was able to order  TiTP2 yesterday morning. Hopefully it ships.  I'm also crossing my fingers for a restock later this week. Would love to pick up giana sisters at this price.

I picked up the Wii U version of Giana Sisters not all that long ago but would love to get it for $10 on Switch as well. I honestly have never seen a physical copy of it on Switch in-store though.

Consider this a PSA:

Sphinx is one of the best games I’ve ever played, as in top 10 ever.

You won’t be disappointed

That is all.

I will viciously beat you if I feel even remotely different about it. This is $10 we're talking about.

There are so many inventive, multifaceted and huge puzzles to solve combining all the mechanics there are. Graphics are nice, music and sound great and etc.

I will gladly accept my punishment via guillotine if you don’t agree.

Off with his head!

To put this in perspective for others, you have only played 11 games.

If we was a CAG bargain bin Hall of Fame, I'd nominate the original Sphinx release along with Haven Call of the King, America's Test Kitchen DS and Cory in the House DS.
