You want a piece of me?


I'm running a bit late this week with the wrapup, so without further adieu...


Glen's LCVG.com Game of the Week



Tales of Symphonia (GC) - $49.99


It was close but with the comments that I've seen about NCAA, I had to make it a runner up. I'll be picking up both titles, but at this point I thought Tales is probably the better game of the week.

Just the things that I've mentioned in the NCAA Xbox thread. Slowdown issues on the Xbox version. The fact that the CPU still runs far too much for the college game.


Those sorts of things drag the game down for me.


I know it could be the bee's knees, but issues like the running game have been out there far too long to be excused.

As popular as this game is here on LCVG I briefly contemplated buying five or so copies and offering them up on the boards for cost. Then I realized that Best Buy offers free shipping so those who wanted it would really come out ahead by getting it off of the site.


You can't say that I'm not thinking of you guys (and girls).

Best Buy is very good at getting your hopes up and then cancelling an order. Here's hoping that they don't.


Here, here Glen, I'll second that one! And back order has always equaled canceled order when it's a clearanced video game at Bestbuy.com when I've ordered. :(
