I don't know how the game will translate over to the console versions but Mafia is one of my favorite all time games. It has a great classic storyline and creates a wonderful atmosphere throughout the time periods it spans. I highly recommend Mafia. I'm amazed that this game was albe to make it to the consoles and I hope the support is strong, I'd like to see more work by this studio.

If a site can't get their stuff together, they won't have orders from me in the future. I sent them a polite email letting them know that.

 

I got mine cancelled too. Any major websites like this that don't have their web store connect to some kind of real on-hand count of inventory need to throw in the towel. It creates a lot of ill will with the customers when they think they got in on a great deal, but really didn't.

A few interesting Sega games at EBgames.

 

Panzer Dragoon Orta (Xbox) - $19.99

Sega Soccer Slam (GC) - $19.99

 

Lots of things on backorder at low prices as well.

 

I'm finally going to order Panzer Dragoon Orta. I've held off for a while, and with this price and the free shipping, this is pretty close to the best find I'll have.

My $18 order for Super Mario Sunshine shipped today from dvdempire.com. :green:

 

From what I've read elsewhere, it sounds like they sold out of their Romance...VIII stock rather quickly and couldn't get any more copies from their distributor. I'm always suspicious that the distibutor (KOEI themselves?) suddenly thinks their game is hot and won't sell it for cheap, not realizing that the only reason it got heated was because of the low price. So now people see their game even at $20 and think it overpriced. Same thing happens at bestbuy.com all the time. I've come to just roll with it. If I get it, great. At least dvdempire cancelled the order almost immediately, unlike bb which will let you think you have a chance for weeks.

Rumor has it that I-Ninja has dropped to $19.99 (All Platforms) at Best Buy B&M.

 

I'm going to head there after work and see what's what.

 

I'm probably going to pick up the Cube version of that one. Just for another copy of Pac-Man Vs.

 

That way I can get someone hooked, and then give it to them. :)

Yeah, I'm sad that way....gotta have the real packaging. I only have 2 games in the greatest hits packaging and they stand out like sore thumbs.

 

Well, due to a bit of shopping. I have Metal Arms (GC), I-Ninja (GC), and Maximum Chase (Xbox) in my hands. All for $47.00 plus tax.

 

Gotta love the Circuit City price match on Maximum Chase.

 

I'm not going to be in the spot the glitch contest though, seeing as how I bought Beyond Good and Evil last week. :)

Heheh. I do have 7 of the Platinum Hits titles now, but only due to that crazy $5 glitch that Best Buy had a few weeks ago. I figured for so many quality, brand new games, I'll make an exception!!!

 

Damn, I hope that Balder's Gate drops in price soon, I am itching to play it, but I sure don't have a good reason to buy it right now. Too much other stuff I need to get through!
