    Hello again all.
    Sorry for the delay in getting this to the site. I was out of town yesterday(The opportunity to be at a Packer game in Lambeau is more important... sorry. [​IMG] ) and when I got home, I couldn't get the site to come up.

    I will have more in this thread as the day goes on. I'm still working my way through the flyers from yesterday, and really couldn't bring them to work. Sorry.
    Thanks for your patience.
    As you can see this is a rather big week as far as the ads were concerned. Just about everyone had 20 or 30 games available. Makes for a busy typing day.

    Medal of Honor Allied Assault Spearhead is an expansion pack for the first Allied Assault game. It has like 8 new levels or something and a lot more stuff to do in multiplayer mode. (new weapons, grenades, characters and maps).

    I can't wait to get this one!!

    Great list. I'm waiting on a PS2 bundle or price drop to sit the Sony device next to my gamecube. Until then I'll have to balance whether or not I should get Sonic Mega Collection or just wait for Metroid.

    Target had the GameCube on sale for $129.99. If you buy the Cube for $149.99 you get a $20 gift card in return.

    I was going to be posting a few things like that later today, but you beat me to the punch. [​IMG]
    I'm not sure you'd be able to use the gift card on that purchase though. If you could, it's a great deal.

    Thanks for the post. Is Star Wars: Bounty Hunter coming out early? I thought it wasn't due out for a week or two. Man the Xbox live is tempting, but there just aren't any games I really want to play on it...

    NBA Street for the Gamecube at Target $9.99 on their Clearance shelf. I have no idea if this is at every store, but well worth a look for a terrific Bball game.

    Spy Hunter for the Gamecube also at Target for $14.99 on Clearance. (Just for you David)

    Dave,

    If you want, send me an email and I'll pick up Spy Hunter at the local Target.

    Shouldn't be more than 17 or so with shipping.

    Let me know.

    I might take you up on that. Let me check a couple of other nearby Targets first, though.

    Any word on Mechassault for the XBox? I've seen glimpses of it on TechTV and it looks pretty darn impressive.

    I had a friend at work who pre-ordered Mechassualt from ebgames.com and he received a copy in the mail on Tuesday. Check any GameStops or EB stores in your area. They are probably your best shot.

    I saw a few copies of MechAssault at Best Buy when I was out there today.

    Also, I saw Gun Valkyre for $19.99 at Best Buy. Not an advertised price, just a drop it looks.
