I rarely see DQ V anymore. I grabbed my copy when I finally found one at GameStop.

I actually was lucky to get mine at TRU today, they actually had a solid 5-7 copies I think as well. Looking forward to playing it after I finish DQ IV.

I guess the new Mario/Luigi game that comes out this week (Bowser's Inside Story) is supposed to be pretty awesome too.

Re: Official Nintendo DS Thread VIII: 65 Million Strong.. and Growing

That M&L game and Scribblenauts coming out within a day of each other is the reason I'm passing on that great Amazon deal on KH 358/2. It's unrealistic to think I'd play three games at the same time on a system I rarely even turn on.

By the way : What's the official way of pronouncing the title Kingdom Hearts 358/2? I haven't been so stumped on a title pronunciation since

Grumble... This is a one-trip deal for me. Now I'm going to have to call at 10 when they open and be told they're at the mercy of UPS.

How many copies of Scribblenauts did they have?

I actually didn't see any on the shelves, I went in around 10:15 after they opened at 10 and saw a lady at the counter buying two of them, so I just asked and he pulled one out for me.

I'm on hold now while they check for M&L3, haven't asked about Scribblenauts yet.

On the subject of M&L, why is it so hard to find new copies of M&L 2?

As expected, they have 8 copies of Scribblenauts, but no M&L3 until FedEx gets there "by 5". She said they're usually there in the morning but there's no way to know for sure.

It's 20 minutes from me and I certainly don't want to make 3 trips (counting the one Sunday for M&L3), but they can only hold a copy of SN for an hour. Guess I'm just going to have to try my luck later.

Was the GC good for M&L3 Sunday only? Even when it was not out yet?

That's what the ad said, but the manager on Sunday said they'd honor today. They had better

Picked up my copy of Scribblenauts. Had no trouble using my Wii Sports Resort $25 card to pay and the $15 card they gave me is a standard gift card with no expiration date.

I had problems but not because of the speculated reason. Apparently when I checked out with Wii Sports Resort they didn't put the bonus $5 on my card so it was only a $20 gift card.

Of course the employee was clueless on what to do. He recommended calling the number on the back to check the spending history. Of course I told him I hadn't touched it since he (yep same guy from when I bought WSR) gave it to me back in June, so there is no history on the card. So he pages a manager on what to do over the intercom to which the [sounded annoyed] manager said to just take $5 off the game.

Re: Official Nintendo DS Thread VIII: 65 Million Strong.. and Growing

I took an extended lunch with a coworker hoping to give the FedEx guy time to get there (no dice).

Had no problem using my $30 Batman: AA GC on it. Got the game and another $15 GC for $1.27 out of pocket.

As for M&L3, they say they have coupons to honor the Sunday deal today and tomorrow. Not sure if I'll go back around 7pm tonight (to give my $15 card time to mature) or not. Would be nice if it was just $10 off and not another GC.

Re: Official Nintendo DS Thread VIII: 65 Million Strong.. and Growing



I started Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars the other night. Wow. This one flew under the radar. I know someone mentioned it here so I tossed it on the Gamefly queue and I'm glad I did. I only put in about 45 minutes to an hour so far and love it. Think Hotel Dusk without the novel.

Unfortunately Gamefly had to reach 15 deep to send it to me, and on the week Scribblenauts came out, so it will be going back for now. I'll lose my save by sending it back, but it should be pretty easy and quick to get back to where I'm at.

Even at only an hour in I have no reservations recommending it to adventure game fans.

Re: Official Nintendo DS Thread VIII: 65 Million Strong.. and Growing

I really loved Broken Sword. It was overpriced when it came out, but now that it is $20 on DS I really can't recommend it enough. It was nice to see them really remake it and improve it on DS instead of just doing a sloppy PC port like other games.
