The Daisy

Recommended Posts

Good morning!


We're finally starting to get to the point where we're getting more than a trickle of titles each week. Not a ton coming out, but we look like we're getting a few good ones.


Let's get going.


Glen's LCVG Game of the Week



007: Everything or Nothing - $49.99 (GC)

007: Everything or Nothing - $49.99 (Xbox)

Honestly, it was a toss up between this and Winning Soccer Eleven. Hopefully the tradition of good Bond games continues with this one.

dvdsoon.com has NFL Street (Xbox) for $29, shipped (that's after converting the cost from Canadian into real money). You can save even more by choosing the free shipping, but I figured since they probably use that option to ship by sled dogs, I'd spring for the standard rate. Yay, Canada!


Also, EB Games is having a $9.99 Dreamcast sale, with purchase of a game. They recently had a $14.99 sale, so the stock at your local store might already be gone.

First off, it's just "Winning Eleven". It if lives up to past versions, it hands down the best soccer/football game around (yes, even better than EA's FIFA).


The early word is that Everything or Nothing is supposed to be the best Bond game yet, and I'm eagerly anticipating it.

I was at my local EB yesterday and saw a billboard in the entryway that had the following deal:


Unreal Tournament 2004 (available 3/17) for free:

Game costs $39.99

-$10.00 manufacturer's mail-in rebate

-$20.00 EB Games mail-in rebate

-$9.99 Trade in Unreal Tournament 2003 and one other PC game.


I'm not sure I'll get it since I'd rather wait for a possible Xbox port (if it's coming), but even without the trade-in that's still a $10.00 PC game.

Best Buy also has the following:


Purchase Unreal 2 or Halo and get the Halo 2 preview pack, which has a disc with a preview to Halo 2, a controller, and a coupon book. This deal is also available online with free shipping!



Not bad to get a free controller in this deal. Does anyone know if the controller is any good?

Dynasty Tactics 2 (PS2) - $9.99 after promotional code 910504 at Amazon.com


No free shipping options are available, so it should be $14.99 after shipping.


Credit to VGtalk.com for this one.


Also, if you add it to your cart, it may list Gamestop as the vendor. If you look on the right side, you can select Toys R Us and all will work. :)
