    Hello again all.

    We've actually got ourselves an interesting week. Baseball season is about to start on all of the consoles, and my favorite baseball game of the year is coming out as well. Let's get to it.

    GLEN'S HTF GAMES OF THE WEEK

    [​IMG]
    $49.99

    Special Mention

    [​IMG]
    Out of the Park Baseball 5

    Xenosaga shouldn't be a surprise to those of you out there that are big RPG fans. People have been waiting for that title for quite some time now.

    OOTP on the other hand, might be a title that most of you have never heard of. It's a text based baseball game, and in my opinion, one of the better ones of that genre. If you like those sorts of games, you owe it to yourself to take a look at it.

    Let's see what else is coming out this week.

    Games due to be released during between February 23rd and ending March 1st. (Pricing and release dates from Ebgames.com)

    I would get Xenosaga, but I so behind with RPG as of late, so it will just wait a little while. I still haven't even bought Breath of Five DQ or Suikoden 3!

    John, what platform(s) is that for? I checked the Xbox section & those weren't the prices listed. Thanks.

    You're welcome, Dan!

    Also wanted to remind everybody that Best Buy B&M is doing their periodic clearance of strategy guides again, meaning numerous guides can be had for a whole penny apiece. At lunch today, picked up the guides for Starfox, Tony Hawk 4, LOTR FOTR, and Metroid Fusion for a total of 4 cents. Hee hee.

    Edit: On the SamGoody.com deal, Dan, the prices I quoted are for Gamecube games. Sorry for not specifying that initially in the prior post.

    John,

    I stopped at BB last night, and checked on a few and they were all normal prices.

    I guess the cashier knew about what I was doing, as he says that guides go for a penny, and then this one guy comes in and buys them all, and then goes and sells them to a used book store.

    Crazy.
