This is just wonderful news! I'm gonna see if I can snag 50 Cent: Bulletproof. That guy's from the streets.

Hmmm...I'm almost interested in getting DBZ Sagas. Funny because a certain person was almost afraid that I'd gotten it for them for their birthday simply because it was DBZ, but said person doesn't like the vast majority of video games. ....Hmm, I'll stop there before this gets into a full-blown rant, heh.

I couldn't find any reference to any such sale on their website, where exactly are the details posted?

Sarcasm? Or a sincere fan...?

DQ VIII for $10?  Wow, if anyone can snag me a copy that would be cool!  Needless to say, I'll pay for the game and S&H smile

cheers,

Screw that, my local Circuit City isn't even keeping From Russia With Love in stock.  Plus their claim of $30 off the game is asinine, the list pricehas dropped to $20, so quite literally, it's only $10 off, and that was only if they actually had been carrying the game.

That depends.  You will probably dislike FFCC if:

1. You foolishly think it's anything like a numbered FF game.
2. You think all Square games must be FMV-laden angst fests to be good.
3. You hate fun.

Seriously, though, for ten bucks it's at least worth trying.  Especially if you have friends with GBAs who can play multiplayer with you.  Even if not, it's a pretty enjoyable hack-and-slash IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GETTING INTO.  For some reason, despite the fact that every preview of the game for a year before it came out said exactly how the game plays (read: simple dungeon crawler), everyone still bought it and was like "OMG THIS ISN'T WHAT I EXPECTED IT SUCKS WHINE WHINE WHINE."  If you go in knowing the kind of game to expect, it's really enjoyable for what it is.  Also, it has my favorite graphics/art direction of this generation, I think.  And one of my favorite soundtracks, too!

It's an okay game but not great. It was hell for me to play because that bloody Moogle is so freakin' slow, and the enemies sometimes swoop down on you like there's no tomorrow, that the chalice of miasma-fighting liquid whose name escapes me at the moment is pretty useless. And then you're in for it when Moogle gets inexplicably stuck behind a rock and can't move because he's trying to hover the shortest distance to get to you, which unfortunately is being blocked by said rock or other obstacle.

Heh, I'm releasing all the bile I've been storing up since my 40-inch review that I never turned in.

It's probably best to play with at least 3 people (since with 2 people, 1 person is always holding the chalice and that's their ONLY job -- they can't fight, use magic, defend themselves, NOTHING -- all they can do is walk slowly and be a prime target for enemies). I've heard that as a multiplayer game, it's great, although good luck with the last boss. (As is obvious, I never finished the game.)

Made out like a bandit, myself. Snagged Dragon Quest, Ratchet, Jak, Metroid, and Crystal (which I KNOW sucks, but $10 assuages a lot of ills). Also found elsewhere a used copy of Jak 2, to complete the set. Add to this that the sack of 9 GBA games found at work back in February was finally released from Lost & Found into my custody and you have 15 games in one day, a personal best.

Had an incident with DQ that surprised me a little bit - as those who have the game know, the manual is kept outside the box. Opening the case, the first thing that you see is the FFXII demo and the manual for the demo (DQ lies underneath the demo. This offended me on an odd level, as if S-E was saying, "Yes, thank you for buying DQ, but we all know what you REALLY wanted, don't we?" To which I responded, "No you f---ing don't," bewildering bystanders only somewhat, and expunged both demo and manual from the case, restoring the DQ manual where it belonged. In retrospect, I'm a bit surprised at the level of annoyance I felt at that.  Having played it now, however, I feel vindicated, as the demo deserved no less than shameful exile. Let's leave it at that.
