Yeah, alot of the old puzzle games are OOP and quite expensive on eBay and other sites.

I used to be that you couldn't get Clubhouse Games for less than $50 on eBay.

Juzylle if you cant afford Tetris DS I would recommend getting tetris worlds for the gba. Its much more affordable and its a fun tetris game. I havent played tetris ds but id imagine its the same as all the other tetris games. Plus since the ds is backwards compatible with gba your good to go.

You can still find it here in Canada in places such as Best Buy and Future Shop for around $35 Canadian.

I bought Tetris DS for my boys because I wanted to have a non-Mario game, but that son-of-a-bitch is in that game too.

I have no idea why games like this, Clubhouse Games and Wario Ware Touched go out of print. I have all three and I'm glad I didn't wait to buy them, but it sucks for people that missed them.

Nintendo really needs to release a platinum hits line to get these back into print. There is obviously a demand when they go for $70 used.

I am surprised they dont do this as well, seeing as they do everything they can to squeeze as much money from their gaming business as possible (like shipping more Wiis and Wii fits overseas due to the weak dollar)

Took forever to see this with GBA titles, even then it was limited at best.

But having found 2 copies of Tetris Ds for 20 apiece at Target a month ago... the demand made it easy to sell my extra copy, and essentially making my copy free

I didn't mind Mario so much until he turned up as the final boss in Contra 4.

Definately getting out of hand.

Rarely due I actually laugh-out-loud at work while reading DVDTalk, but this was one of those times.
