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)?
I need a new signature.

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.

This confirms my suspicion that Sony will always wait for me to buy a PS2 game at full price before adding it to the Greatest Hits Collection. Posted Image (actually I haven't picked up R&C yet, so I might give that a shot sometime soon). Other than that, I'm practically overloaded with good games and work, so nothing for me this week.
