Good morning everyone,

I think we're going to see another pretty light week as we really start to get ready for E3, but you never know.

GLEN'S HTF GAME OF THE WEEK


$49.99 $49.99 $49.99

I was a huge fan of the first NBA Street game. EA Big did a wonderful job bringing back the spirit of NBA Jam and making a much more fun basketball game, for a single player or a group of friends. This game looks to improve on the first one in every way.

For those Blockbuster deals, is that a regional thing? My Blockbuster doesn't have an advertised special, and it says that Ratchet & Clank is $39.99.

Is this one of those specials that if I brought the game up to the counter, it would ring up at $19.99 even though there's no mention of the special?

I wanna pick up MechAssault and Ratchet & Clank :D

Thanks.

The Blockbuster deal still seems to be on their page. I guess we'll have to go there and see if things are still going on.

Edit: More additions to the price drop list... near the bottom. Too many to type twice. :)

Have any of you seen a good Dreamcast deal lately? I'm looking for the console, Crazy Taxi, and the Sonic Games all in one bundle. I'm hunting on eBay, but if you hear of anything, please let me know.

Thanks.

Just saw a few new-to-Costco Gamecube titles for 19.99 each:

Jimmy Neutron
Disney's PK
Rugrats Royal Ransom
Big Air Freestyle

Other 19.99 Gamecube titles I saw, don't think they're new to Costco:

Lost Kingdoms
Burnout
Darkened Skye
Minority Report
4X4 Evo 2
Aggressive Inline
Baldur's Gate
18-Wheeler
Casper
Zoocube
Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2
Defender
Spy Hunter
Driven
Egg Mania
ESPN Winter Sports 2002
MLB Slugfest 20-03
NFL Blitz 20-03
NHL Hitz 20-03
Red Card 20-03
Outlaw/Swingerz (?) Golf
Robotech Battlecry
Rocky
Super Bubble Pop
XG3 Extreme G Racing
Cubivore

Also stopped by my local Best Buy and saw that they had gotten in huge shipments of both Minority Report and Reign of Fire for Gamecube at 9.99 each.

EBgames.com has Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Taz:Wanted for Gamecube, 19.99 each. Also, their B&M stores usually have the same prices in the system even if the game is marked differently on the shelf. So these games could qualify for the (in-store) rebate deal I described in last week's roundup.

The Blockbuster deal is good in my area, too. But it's unadvertised. Ratchet and Clank on the sticker was $39.99, but I brought it up to the cashier, and had him ring it up for me, and he said $19.99.

So I got MechAssault and Ratchet & Clank for $19.99 each :D

Thanks for the heads up. :emoji_thumbsup:

They're not really "Video Games" of the truest sense, but EB is running the following DVD games for $4.99

Hologram Time Traveller
Who Shot Johnny Rock?

Edit: Also added Driven and WTA Tour Tennis for the GC for $9.99 at EB

Has anyone seen new copies of Final Fantasy Anthology and/or Chronicles in your local stores? I'm hoping to find it at a local store and for less than the $42+shipping that Ebgames wants.

Edit: Also... I got a $15 gift card from EA.com today in my email. If you get their emails, be on the lookout.

Updated with a few changes. A few games have gone back up in price.

Edit: I've also added a few GBA games that have dropped in price at Best Buy.

Thanks for the info, Glen!! I picked up Mech Assault at BB this afternoon. My BB actually had the $19.99 sale price marked on the box. Great deal!

Zelda for the Cube is $44 and NBA Street 2 (all consoles I believe, at least PS2) is $45 at Costco. Not great deals, but probably better than any other store.

Star Wars: Clone Wars for Gamecube is 19.99 at CircuitCity.com free shipping.

Dead to Rights for Gamecube is 19.50 at GameExpress.com (gexpress.com). I've ordered from them, good service.

Monsters, Inc. for Gamecube is 19.99 (used = 24.99; weird) at Gamestop.com.

Butt Ugly Martians for Gamecube is 19.99 (pre-order, release date 5/20/03) at Buy.com.

I bought Clone Wars for Gamecube at my local Circuit City at lunchtime today. Sticker said $39.99, but it rang up at $19.99, same as on their web site. Even if it hadn't, they've matched their web site price before for me, so it's definitely worth checking out B&M if you're close to one and interested in this game.
