My Wally World must have just restocked because they haven't had it for quite some time. I guess it should be noted that they only had the Platinum Line version of the game, none of the original print run.
That one rang up $20 for me on Monday.

Amazon's vg deal of the day is Tekken 6 (360 & PS3) for $20. That's an awesome price for game that's been out less than 2 months. Link

Nice price. Is that the same guitar that came in the RB2 pack? My strummer on mine feels like it is going to break at any moment it has gotten so loose so I would like to possibly acquire a new one.

I know the original RB guitar was wired in the RB1 pack but they released a separate wireless one at the time. I didn't know if that wireless one back then is that same as the one released with RB2.

Did any of that make sense? It sounded better in my head.

Yes, this is the RB1 wireless guitar Spiderbite. My strum on my RB2 wireless went south a few weeks ago. Still can't pull the trigger on this since the original guitars were garbage.

Thanks for the heads-up. I printed the coupon and I'll swing by when I'm out, but I won't be totally bummed if I strike out.

I think it's funny both the PS3 and the 360 version have 1 review each on BB.com and their ratings are 5 and 1 stars, respectively.

Question, were you buying other items? Because I'm wary of trying to walk out of there with a game and pay absolutely nothing.

They wouldn't honor it for me. Called it a sale price and wouldn't take the coupon. No big deal as I really didn't care for the game.

Funny, the similar GH: Smash Hits coupon worked just fine for me a couple weeks ago. I guess it just depends on the cashier.

(They did have problems getting the Activision coupon to work, though, which I thought was strange.)

That's all I got. Walked out the door paying nothing. Guy at the door sorta gave me a weird look but didn't say anything.

If it makes a difference, the coupon expires today.

And I don't know why, pinata, they wouldn't honor it. It's in the system. Hand them the your card, the games, and then the coupon. It didn't ring up at first on mine, but that's because the woman had totaled it and then tried to apply the coupon. She had to back up one step and then apply it.

It is a sorta terrible game. Would be much better if they changed the camera system.

New Egg has Far Cry 2 for PS3 at $15.

I'm feeling awfully tempted.

Don't do it!
Actually, it's okay, but a very generic FPS game with a huge play area. That should be cool, but it's actually just miles of barren African planes for you to drive your jeep through. I think I've played it twice since I bought it.

My Best Buy was actually all out of Fairytale Fights, so I didn't even get to give it a shot. I guess I could try another one (quick check online shows it's available at pretty much every other Best Buy except the one nearest to me), but it's really not worth it to me to drive that far on a Sunday night when I wasn't really planning on going out in the first place and I don't really want the game that much.

Yeah, I'm holding back, though I have heard interesting things about the game.

Similar note:

Tomb Raider Underworld PS3 - $10 on Amazon

Best Buy "fixed" the Fairytale Fights glitch in the system Sunday....probably around 6pm EST....although, I'm guessing at the time. That is according to CAG.

I will try to get Saint's Row 2 (PS3) for $5 (Best Buy RZ Gamer coupon)

It looks like all the free game hoarding has finally gotten Best Buy's attention. No free Let's Tap this week.
