I get Golden Sun 2 later on after beating both Pokemon Ruby and the orignal Golden Sun. Good job once again.
I need a new signature.

I've been reading the list for the last couple of weeks, and it's very helpful. Thanks.

I like this thread and www.salescircular.com quite a bit. Salescircular usually updates around 1-2AM Saturday night, so it's good if you want to check early, but this thread is more extensive and accurate.

Oh, and don't forget your local pawn shop! Today I got an unopened Red Faction 2 and Metriod 2(Gameboy) together for $20. I can sell Metroid on ebay for that much, so RF2 was basically free! Great game too, a big improvement on RF1.

I was really hoping Wolverines revenge was on sale this week. I thought for sure Circuit City would have cut $10 bucks off as they have for the last couple of new releases. I got Indiana Jones for $39.

Edit: I updated the deals section at the bottom as a good deal of EB's deals have gone away. I'll try to keep better tabs on them. Thanks, Glen

It's worth noting that the Toys R Us Buy 2 Get One Free deal also works on amazon.com. I'd really like to take advantage of it, since there are some great games there that I haven't bought yet, but unfortunately, I've spent too much money on games recently, and have a backlog of things to play through.
Luckily, right at that moment, an unconscious Argentinean fell through my roof.

He was quickly joined by a dwarf dressed as a nun.

Drew, that sounds right to me. I suppose you could hunt down a customer service number or e-mail for the web site folks and ask them to be sure.

I added Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer for the GC and Xbox to the price change list.

I had a chance to play the PS2 version a while back and enjoyed it. If you like Tony Hawk, chances are you'll like this one as well.

Edit: Also added Evolution Worlds for the GC. I have both of the RPG's that are in this set for the Dreamcast, and I used them as a test to see if my wife would like RPG's. She sure seemed to... now I just have to start moving her into other sorts of games. Posted Image

Added Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring to the list of recent price drops. I think we mentioned this one a few weeks ago, but I put it back on the list just so it's out there. Edit: Also put UFC: Throwdown for the GC on the list. Glen
