    Xbox 360 Games for Sale (sorry, no trades)

    Lollerskates, we seem to frequent the same forums (HTF, AVS, CAG, GTZ). This is like the billionth time I've seen this list of games for sale. :-p

    Metal Slug to Xbox

    http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/...s_6087000.html Looks like SNK finally got fed up with Sony's draconian 2D policies and is bringing Metal Slug to the Xbox instead. I'm glad that it's coming out, but also annoyed that it could have been released months ago if Sony had just approved it...

    Great Games for Cheap

    I got wipeout fusion, Giants: citizen kabuto, and Skygunner for around $21 shipped from EB after coupons. I think Giants won a lot of awards on the PC, so I thought it might be worth checking out. Got Stretch Panic for $5.00 at hastings......only game in the world that lets you pinch giant...

    Halo 2 Pre-order thread

    I would run FAR, FAR away from Buy.com. They couldn't even ship Silpheed, a super low demand game, within a month of release date.....and I had preordered it 2 months prior. No preorder on this for me, I'd rather take advantage of whatever sales occur when it comes out.

    December NPD's - The sheep have spoken

    I never expected games like Top-Spin and Crimson Skies to rack up killer sales and I don't think Microsoft did either. It looks like 3rd party stuff is selling well across the board on the Xbox. It has a userbase nearly identical to the GC's, and yet the #10 Xbox game is selling better than the...

    Beyond Good & Evil...Wow!

    For me it was the sailing. I didn't like spending 40% of my playtime on an activity I found boring within the first 2 minutes. I had played it in small doses to see if I could make my way through, but I quit for good when the triforce hunt began.

    Beyond Good & Evil...Wow!

    I thought it was a good length. I'd rather have a game that is pure enjoyment the whole way through than one that is artificially extended through meaningless garbage(ie: Zelda WW). I get more length out of something like BG&E anyway since the seamless pace makes it stand up well to multiple...

    Castlevania: Lament of Innocence - thoughts?

    I thought it was an average Devil May Cry clone with not much to distance it from the pack. I got it for $33.33 on the TRU deal and I wish I’d have purchased it when it was in the $15-$20 range. Not to say it’s a bad game, since all elements are executed competently, but it feels very generic...

    Great Games for Cheap

    BOF V is also $5 at CC. CC is starting to actually go back in and raise the prices on their clearance deals though.

    Best place to preorder games?

    EB and Gamestop are both reliable but $49.99 for a new game is too rich for my blood. I prefer to snag whatever hot deal presents itself and I don't like being locked into a preorder. For example, I just snagged Sonic Heroes at Target for $18.00 with a raincheck substitution.....and picked up a...

    Primal for dirt cheap

    480p is good enough for me, I can't even tell the difference between 480p and 1080i on my 27inch at normal viewing distance. When I started playing Primal, I thought the crisp graphics would look great in high-def but assumed it was just wishful thinking. After you mentioned it though, I...

    Two Towers vs. Return of the King ?

    There are known problems with Thompson drive Xboxes and EA games in general, but I don't think there's any specific known problems with ROTK.

    Primal for dirt cheap

    The only time the camera bugs me is when Scree climbs on walls, otherwise it seems like every other 3rd person game. Dave, I didn't know this game supported HD, how do you enable it?

    Any reviews for Rogue Squadron III-Rebel Strike yet?

    They should be in CD cases somewhere in the video game department. They used to have yellow/green inserts, but now the insert is yellow/black. Basically, you buy the giftcard, and there is a coupon for $5.00 off any game or accessory > $19.99. You can do it all in one transaction if you don't...

    Primal for dirt cheap

    Primal is $9.99 at the EBgames website, brand new. I picked it up for the even lower $6.99 Xmas sale price a week ago and it got here today. At this price, I highly recommend Primal. I was expecting a Devil May Cry knockoff, but it's actually more of an adventure game in the vein of Ico. The...

    Any reviews for Rogue Squadron III-Rebel Strike yet?

    It will only be $24.99 after the coupon in the gamer's giftcard case. I almost got it today but I ended up going with I-Ninja for $14.99(PS2). I'm pleased with my choice so far but maybe I'll pick this up anyway. What % of the game is on-foot missions?

    Arx Fatalis

    I got it for $29.99 new at EB and it's pretty good. I don't think I'd go by ANYTHING oxm says. It has a lot in common with Morrowind. The gameplay is very similar, although you follow a much more linear path. The graphics also have some similarities and have about the same overall performance...

    Metroid Fusion for GB Advance!!!

    I liked this game but I still think Super Metroid is the best in the series. Still a great addition though.

    Buying "Used Games" Disguised as "New"

    I don't see why the lack of seal stickers on GC games even matters, any store shrinkwrap is so different from the factory shrinkwrap that you'd have to have only bought very few new games to not immediately notice. I NEVER pay full price for a not factory sealed game. The major offenders seem to...

    Problems with GTA 3 - Xbox

    I would put your most critical saves on a memory card and return the Xbox to the store you bought it at. Most of the new Xboxes have samsung drives now, so check the manufacture date when you get your new one.

    Final Fantasy X-2

    The whole game is basically set up like the "world tour" you go on in other FF games before the last boss. The gameplay is pretty good and has one of the better battle systems present in a FF game. The plot is mediocre, in fact, there isn't really much of a plot at all. The characters are...

    Suikoden series

    It's a great series. In fact, I think it has surpassed Final Fantasy due to FF's transition to whiny effiminate guys and teenie bopper girls as main characters. Suikoden 2 is by far the toughest one to find. Since you have it, I'd definately get Suikoden 1 and play it first. Unlike FF, the...

    Which RPG should I play?

    I've already done most of the newer games, which is why I was asking for suggestions on those particular games. FFX2- beat it shortly after it came out KOTOR- beat it shortly after it came out Celda- quit playing in disgust at the monotonous fetch quests and tedious sailing. Beyond Good...

    Games you don't know you should have!

    Well, I'll try to throw some games out here that haven't been suggested yet, although I do second many of the suggestions above. For multiplatform, definately give Lord of the Rings: Two Towers or ROTK a shot. Don't be put off by the movie license, these two games are the new Golden Axe of...

    Which RPG should I play?

    Oh, if it were only 8, I'd be thrilled. I probably have a solid 50 games I still need to beat. I just buy games whenever I see a good deal on them, so they tend to accumulate. I also collect RPGs regardless of whether or not I'll play them so I tend to get a lot. Also, the overall quality of...

    Which RPG should I play?

    It has come to my attention that I have a very large "stack of shame" consisting of unplayed RPGs. I have a couple of weeks with absolutely nothing to do right now, but I'm going to be busy in the future and this is probably the last chance I'll have to revisit older games. I'm only considering...

    This is what racing games are all about

    I finished the KWC on silver. I also agree that it was too easy, but the game is so long that it would take forever to beat it if you had to struggle with each challenge. I doubt I'll go for higher metals, as I'd rather play some of my neglected games(bought Metroid Prime on release and still...

    Anyone notice Target: Low or no stock of ad items?

    Roughly 85% of the time, the Target near me will not have advertised video games in stock, regardless of when I've gone during the week. Whether it's early sunday or the middle of the week, Target just can't get its stuff together. I think the problem is that they advertise new release games as...
