Sweet.

I just ordered Rygar.

I won't be able to play it for a while as I broke my only dual shock the other night and don't have the $20 or so for a new one right now (really didn't have the $9.98 shipped for this either, but can't pass up this good a deal on a game I've been waiting for a deal on).

Awesome find! I picked up Rygar. Been wanting to try it out, just not wanting to pay a premium for it.

I haven't played it in a while but don't they have 4 or so Control Options? The thing I didn't like was the lack of Save ability. Play for 1/2 hour in one level, turn it off and start over. I rarely have hours of straight time to play.

Scored!!

I went to the EB in Plano at Willowbend. The store clerks had just marked down the prices. I got Harry Potter, 007, and Rygar for 16 bucks and some change. Other employees saw the prices and most likely said they were going to save the other copies for themselves. I'm glad I got it when I did, thanks for the post.

Something funny happened also, lady was returning a Gameboy SP and she just bought it 3 hours earlier in the day. She was wondering why the battery kept going out. The store employee told her that she needed to charge the battery and that the initial charge from the factory would only last so long. She kept arguing it was a dead battery. I had to bite my tongue the whole time. They ended up exchanging the Gameboy SP for another one. She asked the employee if he could pick a gameboy with a fresh battery. Some people just have no clue...

EB in Barton Creek Mall in Austin, TX was pillaged by their employees. All they had left was a copy of Harry Potter, there was also a few others for $4.99:

Eggmania
Johnny Mosley Mad Trix
Savage Skies

I was planning on ordering Rygar and 007 at 4 today, but I was leaving to go to the white sox game so I decided to wait until I got home to see if they had any left online. Well, they're sold out so I'll stop by the store tommorow, if not, oh well. I've played Rygar before, it's pretty good but I have a lot of games to play as it is

Thanks, I picked up Rygar and 007. Now I'm glad I missed the Rygar for 19.99 at KB Toys. Great deal on two games on my "to buy" list.

Might be true ONLINE, but it's alive and well at the B&M. Picked up Rygar, Harry Potter & 007.

thanks mrglass by way of fatwallet.

Probably depends on where you live for the B&M. I went today and I saw NFL2K3 at $20. I asked the guys up front about it and all they said was that the online store and the B&Ms are separate.

Whether or not the deal is still alive, this statement is untrue. The online site and the retail stores always have the same prices, even when those prices are not accurately reflected on the in-store price tags.

This is the second time i've gone to an EB, given a line of BS about how the online store is different, only to have them scan the game to their utter disbelief. The first was Mark of Kri for $10.

I went back today to see if they had any more copies left and the guy behind the counter (good guy, i've talked to him on occaisions before...) said it was either a price error or just a special, because it's back to their reg. price. Can't be as bad an error as this:
