I'm thinking about a few of these games, but I'm also reminded that physical discs are fucking useless these days.

 

I'm so sick and tired of getting a game, putting it in the disc tray, and then having to wait for a fucking 50GB patch to download before I can play it. At least digital gives you the updated builds right then, and you don't have to worry about idiot publishers pushing broken shit out on physical media that they later have to fix.

So is The World Ends with you worth it? I thought about picking it up but not sure if it’s worth it or not.

The fact that in order to play it in handheld mode you must utilize the touch screen had been by biggest reason for not getting it again on switch. I mostly play mine lying down in bed, and that doesn't sound too comfortable. Anyone, if I'm wrong here please correct me.

Anyone notice most of these games out of stock pretty much everywhere yesterday and now all have pre-owned copies today?

Interesting.

Sounds like they hit their self imposed allotment for the sale price.

Picked up SNK Heroines for Switch and Alliance Alive for 3DS for $9.97 each.

No experience with the switch version however, I played it on my 3DS (it was excellent) and I can't see how that would translate into only button mashing on the Switch given all of the different movements you need to do to activate the attacks.  But yes, I agree using the touch screen only would make this game difficult to play in a horizontal position.

I'm either out of it or just surprised that Kirby Battle Royale wasnt acknowledged in this thread. 9.97 for a new copy? And better with target price match and an extra 5%

Were you able to get a price match through target? Tried twice and both times the reps claimed that it wasn't eligible because the SKU's didn't match.

the rep i spoke with wouldnt price match because it shows OOS online. i would have maybe gotten lucky yesterday since it was in stock on gamestop. i waited too long.

It's because the game is very mediocre and easily the worst of the Kirby games on the 3ds and ds. Single player is very short and pretty much just a slightly glorified tutorial.

I tried when it was actually in stock and both reps I tried made the same claim that it wasn't the same item. The gamestop page is for 3 different variants mind you. No big deal, just kind of silly.

I guess they like to find different excuses.

Are there actually different skus? What's the difference? I had 0 issue price matching at target. After taxes I paid 8.80, although I get an additional 10% employee discount to bring it down a bit more. I did price match when there was stock online. If that matters.

That's just incompetence, sounds like. They probably tried scanning the UPC and it didnt come up right away, and instead of searching Gamestop and taking the New price as the price to match, they just bs'd you. It's usually more incompetence than anything on their part. Initially the rep told me "I dont think we price match Gamestop.com" until I showed him the target price match site with Gamestop.com clearly on it

But it's Kirby 😄
I collect 3ds games, needed this regardless. But good to know why no one seemed to care. It still is by far the lowest price I've seen for this title. I say, it's worth $10. Probably not too much more.

To give an update, I went into Target today and they had a copy of Kirby. They took the price match without issues. Warioware was there too. Should have bought here instead of best buy for the red card discount.

Yeah honestly I'd have to agree. I just let it go after 2 tries instead of continuing to argue something that should be painfully obvious to literate adults.

I get it; I've bought a bad game merely because it was part of a series (stares at Xenosaga II).

It hasn't been for a while, unfortunately. Half of the time I can't even get free shipping to work with my Elite Pro account.

If they don’t match on their ipads, they won’t price match

Not necessarily a Game Days sale, but I can’t find a copy of Assassins Creed Odyssey Gold edition for ps4 anywhere. $50 seems like a good price to me. Oh well.
