    Hello again all. Do you hear the crickets chirping? Listen.... Can you hear them?!?
    To be quite frank, this is a very slow week as far as Video Games is concerned. With Metroid and Splinter Cell hitting last week, we're due for a lull, so....
    Let's start the show!
    GLEN'S HTF CO-GAMES OF THE WEEK
    [​IMG]
    Rygar: The Legendary Adventure
    [​IMG]
    Master of Orion III
    Honestly, there really isn't all that much to write home about this week. But, Rygar has been a title that has garnered some interest due to it's old school roots. So, it becomes the game of the week.
    Also, I've included Master of Orion 3 on the Game of the week charts. I loved MOO3, and honestly, I think it will probably sell around as many copies as Rygar does, before it's all said and done. [​IMG]
    Games due to be released during between November 24th and ending November 27th. (Pricing and release dates from Ebgames.com)
    Legends of Wrestling II (GC, PS2, Xbox) - $49.99
    Master of Orion III (PC) - $49.99
    Rygar: The Legendary Adventure (PS2) - $49.99
    Medal of Honor Underground (GBA) - $29.99
    Altered Beast: Guardian Realms (GBA) - $29.99
    Ok, here's the skinny. I've thought about the structure of this thread a bit more and I've decided to only list titles that are on this weeks/last weeks release list, or are priced differently than suggested retail. I'll be more than glad to add prices to the list if people mention them though. Let me know if you have any thoughts about this matter.

    I'm thinking we might see something for that on Black Friday, or possibly next Sunday.

    That's just a hunch though. No actual info that would lead me in that direction.

    For anyone interested, there is a coupon in the Best-Buy-distributed Fox Demo Disc #2 (a demo disc for DVD movies) that actually has a non-movie coupon in it! The coupon is good through 1/10/03 for $5 off of Star Wars Bounty Hunter for either PS2 or GC.
    The demo disc is free at Best Buy with purchase of any Fox DVD or VHS (though Ice Age is the film they are pushing with it). While supplies last, minimum 250 per store, no rainchecks, not available at BB.COM, etc.

    Just got an email for this: Exclusive Black Gameboy Advance *WITH* Super Mario World (Super Mario Advance 2) included for $69.99
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00007CWIZ
    Over the weekend, Toys R Us also had a Buy 2 Get 1 Free on all Gameboy titles, so it worked out to $20 a piece to get the latest games such as Metroid, Castlevania HoD, Super Monkey Ball Jr, Contra, etc.
    Edit: Game promotion probably was last weekend only.

    Thanks Perry. I had a $10 Vividence certificate laying around so got it for $64.48 shipped! To think I almost bought one today at lunch for $59.99 without a game.

    That Mortal Kombat deal sounds good...but I have to go with finally picking up Animal Crossing today along with Ice Age for myself. Might use Toy R Us deal on Christmas deals for myself (I select the gifts).

    Glen--Nice work on this! It's really helpful to see all this in one place.
    One suggestion though: Since there are so many N/A's, it might be easier if you just put the places that had sales, maybe something like this:
    Rygar (PS2): $39.99 (BB,CC)
    Turok (Xbox): $44.99 (TRU)
    GTA: VC (PS2): $39.99 (BB); $44.99 (CC)
    It would cut down on the amount of typing you have to do, and would be easier to read. Just a suggestion, please feel free to use or not use at your discretion [​IMG]

    I'm guessing that that TRU deal is in store only... I might run over that way after work today to take a look see.

    I think the Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 1 Free Gameboy games might have been a weekend deal only. I just happened to be in there on Sunday, but I went back today and no sign of the promotion anymore. Sorry, I'll edit my message.

    MOO3 has been pushed back to December 4th.
    http://apolyton.net/moo3/
    I've been following this one very closely, and can't wait to get my grubby little paws on it. I loved the first 2 installments of this series, and this one should be even better.

    I just got back from Target, having checked out their bargain bin games. I noticed they had The Mark of Kri (PS2) for $29.99, $10 less than most places and an excellent game to boot.
