    GLEN'S HTF GAME OF THE WEEK

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    $49.99 $49.99

    I've been a big fan of Sega's football offerings since the first 2K game came out on the Dreamcast. With the addition of the first person mode, (Edited... looks like the ball was dropped on 720P mode), and new features like "The Crib", I'll be there on the release day to pick this bad boy up.

    Thanks.

    I'll be getting ESPN Football 2k4 for the X-Box this week. Might wait until Friday to get it from CC with the $10 card, as I won't have time to play it until the weekend anyhow...

    Just catching up from last week and getting F-Zero. By the way Glen, can you add me to your friend list on XBox Live (send a request last week)?

    Ah. Sorry Kenneth. I haven't been on Xbox Live in quite some time. I'm still deciding whether or not I'm going to keep it. I'll add you.

    BTW, I still haven't even played Soul Calibur II yet. Just working my way through KOTOR. I should have about 5 to 10 more hours to go there.

    Thanks,

    Glen

    Some recent price drops spotted at TARGET today:

    Bloodrayne (Xbox) - $7.48
    Eternal Darkness (Gamecube) - $12.48
    Disney's Magical Mirror Starring Mickey Mouse (Gamecube) - $12.48
    Sega Smash Pack (GBA) - $4.98

    It seems that prices drop every two weeks, some as much as 50%. If there's excess stock at your location, you may want to plan accordingly to ensure the best price vs. availability.

    Oooh. I would probably buy the Smash Pack at $4.98.

    That would be a solid deal.

    I'm thinking about having a seperate section for Target Clearance prices. Each store is a bit different.
