    Why is it that the biggest game of the week isn't advertised in the Sunday ads? (LOTR: TTT) I called in to the Tulsa TRU to see if they had it and they said that due to the holiday shipments they didn't expect to have the game before Thursday or Friday.... is this widespread on this title?

    This topic has come up before.

    I think it's typically because console games release dates can float around quite a bit, and the ads are printed weeks in advance.

    I think the stores would rather not do all those rainchecks because of possible delays.

    That's just my thought.

    Two Towers for GBA is now mine!

    it plays a lot like Diablo (a lot), so if you're into that and LOTR then it's a steal at Target. i'm having a blast with it.
