Used for $10-15? I might get that.

Send me 15 bucks and it's yours.

Coupon code "Twitterdeal24" gets you $10 off $30+ purchases at toysrus.com. Valid until 10PM today only. Special note, if anyone's thinking of picking up Excitebots, it's available at TRU's site for preorder with free shipping, so with this coupon you could get it for $30 shipped if you hurry.

Edit: Yeah, I totally caved and bought Excitebots this way. Frizzifrackin' removal of custom soundtracks or no, $30 for a brand-new, looks-to-be-top-flight game was too hard to pass up.

If I do preorder this, I'd probably have to get it delivered to work. I had to sneak the last game in the house, but I think she's starting to catch on...

FYE.com (there's an url I have never typed before) has DS Lites in Cobalt/Black, Crimson/Black, and "Metallic Rose" for $99.99 after a $30 rebate. This is either good news for anyone currently on the DS Lite/DSi fence or will merely add to the choice-making agony.

any other Canadians in here?

Toys R Us in Canada is running a deal: Buy any two Wii accessories and get a $10 gift card, Wii points are considered an accessory. Limit 2 per family (probably means 2 per visit).

This is a decent deal for Wii Points which basically works out to 25% off each card.

Buy 2 get 1 free on Wii games at Target this coming week. All titles $49.99 and under, so no Wii Fit!

Madworld and House of Dead Overkill for sure for me... Still thinking of a 3rd one.

Newegg has Animal Crossing: City Folk + Wii Speak bundle for $40. (MSRP is $70.) Think of it as investing in Wii Speak for chat functionality in future games and getting a $10 game as a bonus.

It's like Wii Play - the voice chat version.

Actually, this is tempting.

I'm pretty much not going to stop pimping deals for this game until you buy it, Webb.

But objectively speaking, I think it's a no-brainer for anyone who's going to be buying The Conduit for online multiplayer and has even a little curiosity about the Animal Crossing franchise.

I hit the link, but yet to buy.....but it's looking possible. Just spent some $$ @ NewEgg today, getting a new SD card to dedicate to RB2. Have now learned the old non-SDHC 4GB SD "workaround" to dbl RB2 storage works. W/ the card I got, it looks like I'll have room on it for near 200 tracks.

What I love about the link? The NewEgg description for AC on their site:

"Duck Hunt arms players with a virtual shotgun and lets them blast away at a series of flying ducks. Given the precision aiming needed in the classic title, which worked with a light gun, it is all but certain that the Wii-mote wil act as the weapon this time around. "

I can shoot at the animals as they cross? SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!

newegg.ca also is running the deal but at $50. If I didn't just drop over $100 on wii points I would consider this one.

ugh, $13 shipping...

C'mon, man up and buy this game about planting pretty flowers and cherry trees in a colorful village populated by cute anthropomorphic animals, you nancy boys. Just cut down on the Cosmopolitans for a while and boom, there's your funds.

It's not the Cosmo's, I can live without 'em......but don't make me give up my apple-tinis!!

If the sale price looks to be dragging on for a bit, I will likely bite.

my wife made me watch Twilight with her last night. While it really spoke to the inner awkward high school girl part of me, I feel the need to assert my masculinity and I believe I have a weapon to push the WAF high enough to pick up MadWorld. Forgive me if I pass on this, despite your convincing pitch.

MadWord $40 at Best Buy.

Now I just have to decide if I want to spend my money on that or a blue spiny shell plush toy.

http://www.gamestop.com/browse/Produ...px?groupid=404

Gamestop's Game Days starts tomorrow, which is a sale on NEW merchandise. I know, rare, huh? The Wii section is linked above, and of note are Dragon Quest Swords and Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles. The prices listed today (Saturday) are current retail, but they should all drop 25-50% tomorrow morning.

I went three days in a row after work. Got three $49.99 games, then three $39.99 games, then three $29.99 games.

What I can afford, when I can afford it...

So Gamestop has Ghost Squad for $15, RE Umbrella Chronicles for $30, Dragon Quest Swords for $20, Manhunt 2 for $20, and House Of The Dead 2+3 for $20. All new product.

I picked up Dragon Quest several months ago and it is rather entertaining. $15 sounds like a fair price for the 3 hours of fun to be had from Ghost Squad, and Umbrella is a no-brainer at that price.

So, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles? Totally worth 30 of your Earth dollars! The acting is cheesy, the graphics are good for the Wii, though the lighting is a little weak in detail. Shooting zombies is always a good time.

Good morning,

Amazon has Guitar Hero Metallica for $40, and Samba de Amigo (game only) for $10.

Also, I stopped by GameStop to check out the sale and saw some notable DS games: Final Fantasy III for $15 and Final Fantasy Tactics A2 for $20. I've never played either, but the latter caught my eye, especially for the price, since I rather enjoyed the GBA one.

Hey look, newegg has Wii Speak w/ Animal Crossing City Folk for $40 again for a limited time. How perfect for people who plan on picking up the $30 Wii Speak peripheral anyway for use in the upcoming THE CONDUIT's multiplayer mode!

Guitar hero anyone? Aerosmith, Metallica, and World Tour. Also comes with Wireless drum kit and T-shirt.

http://www.redoctane.com/Guitar-Hero...rum-Bundle-Wii

Promo code "DRUM3GAME" will save you another $40. Total cost for all three games and T-shirt is $120. Shipping is noted as free on the link above.

(Found on Slick Deals this morning.)

I'm confused too.

Considering the GH drumkit is normally $100 alone, $120 getting you 3 games, drums & A T SHIRT(!!!!) certainly qualifies as a "slick deal".

Hey, Amazon has Deadly Creatures for $30 shipped. This game got a decent amount of buzz before release, but was ultimately too weird and a bit too unpolished to tempt many people at full price. For $30 it's probably worth it, but even I'm not sure if I'll pick it up since my gaming schedule looks pretty full through June.
