Ok I have to hit Walmart for one of those tomorrow if mine are at that price. I need one of those. I'm tired of having to have 4 cards.

 

To be honest, Mark, I've never really played the Mega Man games. The last one I can even remember playing is Mega Man 1, but I'm not sure I'm going to pick these ones up just yet. I've just got so much to play this year......

:shock: :shock: :shock:

 

Glen;

 

Just so you know, Mark and I were discussing this problem earlier, and we have decided that, if it's possible, we're going to ban you from the GameCube forum until you at least beat the original Mega Man. I'm sorry, but there is no conceivable reason that someone who posts in the Nintendo forum as often as you to have never played a single Mega Man title.

 

Now, I suppose I could be a nice guy like Mark and say, "Well, if you beat Mega Man II or III, that's good enough, but I'm an asshole, see. As such, I'm going to make you beat the first one before you can be a part of our Nintendo club once again.

 

Nice knowing you, Glen, and good luck with the Rock Monster. ;)

I'm not sure where this "Nintendo Forum" you mention is :P , but I have never played Mega Ton either.

Available at most (but apparently not all) Best Buys, the Gamer's Gift Card comes in a CD jewel case and has a green or black label, on the back of which is a coupon for $5 off any videogame or accessory that is priced $19.99 and up. The card works like any credit card-ish gift certificate. I usually grab one and go through checkout, putting $15 on it. I tear out the coupon and then purchase a game. If I try and do the card, game and coupon in the same transaction the clerk tends to get confused. The green-labeled cards had a Dec. 2003 expiration date, but if they're rejected I point out that I just purchased it.

Too bad Best Buy is now pricing Metal Arms for $19.99. The search continues for the mythical $5 copy of this fun/frustrating game.

It looks like $19.99 for the GC version, and $4.99 for the Xbox (teh bias!!1) - but as Allen said, the Xbox version is sold out, at least right now.

I'm typically picking these up the week before a game comes out now, getting the gift card to be the exact amount of the game minus the coupon. It's a pretty nice system to save yourself $5 bucks on a brand new game.

 

There will be some cashiers that will let you buy the card, and then use it on a game right away... but other cashiers are a pain in the butt on that. YMMV.

Glen:

That's a good idea. I can't see why they would have a problem with it - it's not like you're actually cheating them out of anything. It's probably just that they're embarrassed about being confused by why anybody would want to do it. ;)

 

So if I want to use one on Mario Golf for $24.99, you suggest putting $19.99 (or $20) on the card?
