Is it kinda sad that $30 is considered a "sale", when one generation ago that was "full price"?

Is this sale caused by Walmart? I saw the prices for most of the titles are identical, so Amazon pricematched. Unless...it's the opposite XD

Guess you have never purchased a first party nintendo handheld title ? They basically never drop in price and they are 25% cheaper than the regular price, thats a "sale" for me.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
- Best game of the bunch, tons of content.

Mario Kart 7
- The best Mario Kart game to date.

Super Mario 3D Land
- Cute.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star
- Fantastic game, but don't expect it to play like Paper Mario.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- Another fantastic game, probably only second to Monster Hunter.

I might have to bite the bullet and buy animal crossing, purely based on the hype and this sale. I really don't get what people see in it but I feel like if I wait to long I'll miss out on whatever that is.

Sticker Star is not worth getting at any price, it's the worst Paper Mario by far, and not a good game in its own right either.

A lot of the titles listed would have been $35 on the NDS, actually, and if you account for inflation... :P

Wow really?
I was waiting for a price drop to get this game.
I still think it's way too expensive for what I've read about it but cosidering it was released 8 months ago I was expecting a cheaper game.

I bought and played it for the very first time this year. It was well worth every penny imo.

It is probably the best price you will get on it for the next two years. I grabbed it even though I'll probably not touch it till next year.

it was the 4th highest rated game across all platforms for 2011. it is still a great game and they did a good job with the remake. worth $40 easy, i think it was worth buying a 3ds for myself

Not really, the game is retaining it's value. Super Mario 64 DS is also still at full price today.

I don't want to derail the thread too much but I feel Sticker Star lost most of the charm of Paper Mario, there's less story, the characters all feel more bland, the combat is turn based again but there is no XP so I felt the battles wasted my time, and I tried to skip as many as I could. Also, some bosses require certain stickers to beat easily (or later in the game beat at all). For example I beat the first boss without the sticker you were "supposed" to have for the boss and it was really tough. After I beat the boss your fairy buddy (I forget it's name) said something along the lines of "Wouldn't that have been easier if you had a special sticker". Why didn't they tell me I needed a special sticker before I fought the boss.

Also some puzzles are not intuitive at all, I'll stop there. I just really like the other Paper Mario games so it was just a huge disappointment for me.

I agree with this post. Everything, regardless of quality, must experience depreciation imo. I paid $40 to play it day-1, it was worth that price considering it's a new product, loved every minute of it, but I wouldn't pay $40 to try it out today. $20 for a new copy is pushing it.

Those are some really good deals! Everyone who is remotely interested in Animal Crossing should definitely get in on that price! An $8.40 savings after only 20 days on the market. That's great for a Nintendo title.

I want to rebuy MK7 and Mario 3DL, but I'm tapped out for the month after buying 4 games already.

Nintendo and Blizzard games almost never lose value, it's crazy.
