I just got back from CC and I couldn't find and $4.99 games. I asked a guy about it and he said that it was a computer error that made it onto the net and they wouldn't be honoring the price. :evil: I had $40.00 to spend, too.

That's not right. They recieved special signage for it and everything! How in the hell would that just be a computer error? Besides, they can't override the price for higher than the computer say they can. They can make it lower, but it won't let them set them higher.

Yeah, the Sunday ad says it starts today. I'd go again, but I picked up pretty much what I wanted, and I'd rather save my money for Spiderman 2.

Well I jsut got back from circuit city. I got there right when they opened and there was peckerwoods lined up waiting. Id say there was 25 people there all for the free games, some of them had been waiting for 2 hours. I managed to get 10 games, none that I had actually wanted to get. The games I got was:

Justice League GBA
Superman Apocolips now GBA
Rune: Viking Warlord PS2
Dead to Rights Xbox
Rygar PS2
Waverace Blue Wave Gamecube
Minority Report Gamecube
Haunted Mansion Xbox
Summoner 2 Playstation 2
Mystic Hero's Ps2

Some guy got pissed over me getting Summoner 2 cause apparently he laid the last one down then walked off. But hey when you got 25 peckerwoods diging in the box its fair game once you put it back down. I had wanted to get Vexx, Breath of Fire 2, and Megaman Battle Network 2, but there was like 2 of each in the store and they beat me to it. I guess if they waited 2 hours to get in they deserve it.

Well here is my verdict on the games I got:

Justice League GBA:

Nothing special, guess its worth the $5

Superman Apocolips now GBA:

Pretty crappy actually, gets boreing quick. Also don't like the password feature.


Rune: Viking Warlord PS2:

Ehh can tell its a low budget game, worth $5 is all I can say.

Dead to Rights Xbox:

I will come right out and say it, too hardcore for me. Hate it.

Rygar PS2:

Was enjoying it quite abit till I got to the first boss. Might try it a couple of more times before tossing it to the f**k it pile.

Waverace Blue Wave Gamecube:

Actually played this game before, its decent at $5. Actually very nice at $5. Not as good as the N64 Waverace though, at least not in my opinion.

Minority Report Gamecube:

Never made it out of the tutorial. Looks like another ONI style game though, might be ok. I don't know if its a bug or what, but It wouldn't let me past a room until I did a combo move. I was doing the move and it wouldn't open the door. Guess I will just skip the tutorial next time.

Haunted Mansion Xbox:

If this isn't a rip off of Luigi's Mansion just tell me right now. Its ok and all, worth $5

Summoner 2 Playstation 2:

Never got off the boat, crap battle system for a RPG. Its kinda like Kingdom Hearts with even less control! Might give it another shot, looks like it would be a good game if I can get past the battle system.

Mystic Hero's Ps2:

Undecided on this one so far. Battle system wouldn't be so bad if you didn't have 20 things at a time to fight and less vision then turok 1 for N64. Voice Acting is horrible. Guess at $5 it might be ok.

As of right now the only one I absolutely hate is Dead to Rights. Figure I will end up whoreing off Superman and Summoner 2 before its over though, maybe Rygar and Mystic Hero's.

I would say within 1 hour of the time they opened the only titles left would be the Dance games, sports games, racing games, crap GBA games.

Seen Space Channel 5 for GBA, got to watch 2 different people look at it and just laugh and put it back.

All they had left were old sports games when I went Saturday. The lady there said someone came early and bought almost everything the sore had. Bastard.
It's thinking...
