    Hello there everyone. It’s E3 week, so we don’t usually see all that many games released, but this year will be a bit different…

    GLEN'S HTF GAME OF THE WEEK

    [​IMG]
    $49.99

    I know some of you will be thinking that this should have been the week of the Enter the Matrix games, but I just can’t leave out the PC version of Vice City. It was a terrific game on the PS2, and if the people at Rockstar port it as well as they did GTA3, then we’re in for something special.

    Finding Nemo (GC) - $39.99 (5/12)

    I had the pleasure of playing Enter The Matrix a week before it's supposed to come out. I can tell you right now the game is CRAZY! Also if you own an X-Box and haven't played The Thing yet, you should go down to EB. Like Glenhaag stated, a new one costs $12.99, which is a real bargain for a great game.

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate the nice messages. I wouldn't be doing it if I didn't enjoy it... or if I didn't want to keep adding games to my ever growing collection.

    So many great games for such rock bottom prices! If I wasn't stocked to the gills in unplayed titles I would be hopping around town right now. Thanks Glen...

    Ok. Quite a few updates to the list. KBtoys.com is having a clearance sale and there are a few good ones on the list.

    Panzer Dragoon Orta for $19.97, but is temp out of stock.
    Summoner 2 for the PS2 for $19.97
    James Bond 007: Nightfire for the GC for $19.97

    Check your local KB's to see if they're honoring these prices as well.

    Later,

    Glen
