Sorry if old, I did a search but didn't see anything..



It's clearanced at 20% off. Just got back from my local one and they had plenty of copies. The discount came off at the register, there's nothing in-store to indicate the price drop. Saw it at a topic at fat wallet.

Interesting. I randomly go by Toys R Us every now and then to see if they have any cheap games.. and just so happened to go today.

I saw a bunch of these, but no price tag. I just assumed they were $30 or so. I'll have to go back after work and pick one up.

If you have any love for old adventure games give it a try. At this price it's a steal.

Ordered it for $15 shipped. Looked for coupons online and found none. Still, a great deal; unless you live right on the ass of the a TRU, you'll pay about $10-12 over gas and taxes.

Bloody hell, I swear America always get better gaming deals than we do in the UK. The cheapest you can get this game over here still if £25...AKA $50. -_-

Poor Zack and Wiki. You didn't deserve this. :(
I blame people who were waiting for this kind of price drop. I can't count how many posts I saw here on GAF alone where someone would recommend the game and some douche would say "Just wait a few months when it's in the bargain bin for $9.99 and get it then!". Then those same tards bitch about how there's nothing "hardcore/non casual" for the Wii by 3rd parties that doesn't suck. Same stupid shit I've read for No More Heroes. >=(

Theres actually a decent amount of games on clearance at TRU. RE4 Wii Edition is 7.96 as well, and i picked up Beutiful Katamari for the 360 for this price.

I didn't buy it because honestly its not my genre and I'm pretty sure I'll get easily frustrated by the game. But for 15 bucks, what the hell.

This is me. I've been getting frustrated a lot with games these days (when I finally have a chance to play, I do it to relax) so I've been reluctant.

Trying to decide if I should change my route home from work to hit TRU.

That's different. It's the same as me not buying Umbrella Chronicles because I didn't feel like playing another zombie shooter. I'm talking strictly people who don't buy and play good games but bitch about their availability or lack there of on the Wii and practically anticipating their price drop. AKA Cheapskates that wish the game's failure to sell.

Thanks SO much. I don't have this yet, I've been wanting it for a while but this price is amazing. Buying online now.

Oh now come on. That's just insane.

The game is 50 euros here. That's what, 80 dollars? Your price times 10?

UGH.

And it's insanely good.

I'm going to buy a used copy for a higher price, just so they don't get one more sale.

My bad, I didn't think about it like that.

I played the first couple of levels last night. The production values on this game are great. It's a shame it didn't do well, reminds me of Beyond Good and Evil from last gen. I picked that game up at $20 like a month after it launched.

I know what the poster talking about CheapAssGamers pulling for the failure of good niche titles so they can pick them up on the cheap. It's too bad, games like this should be able to sell at full (wasn't it like a $40 launch title) price.
