Since the Sega announced the death of the Dc, and the subsequent price reductions, I have been on a game buying tear.

In the last month I have picked up, Unreal, Virtua Tennis, Sega GT, Ready to Rumble Boxing, Starlancer, RE 3, and House of the Dead with the light gun.

I figure I might as well stock up on all of these cheap titles while I can, since I am not planning on getting a PS2. I figure I will give the Game Cube a shot and might pick up the X box so I want some great games in the meantime.

Too bad Dreamcast died, it really is does have the best games.

I was happy my local Best Buy has restocked and has a ton of cheap titles. Virtual Tennis for 20 bucks. My buddy picked up Soul Reaver for 10 at Circuit City. I bet these are the best sales figures Sega has had for the DC since launch. So sad.

No kidding! Well I'm sure many deals like this will be coming and going in the next few months.

I am a proud PS2 owner since last Oct. I finally bought a Dreamcast a few days ago. My friends want me to play online with them. Since the Dreamcast will be no more, I bought one with the Smashpack. I picked up Phantasy Star Online. Does anyone have any other recommendations?

I've not found any great deals locally for a while--most games are still $19.99, though Best Buy occasionally has the under $10 game. In all honesty, I'm saving up for Game Boy Advance and X-Box later in the fall. I've just been playing older DC stuff--for example, I pulled out Soul Calibur this past weekend, blew the dust off it, and had a blast with it. Forgot all of Kilik's moves, it had been so long!

I would pick one up if I had a lot of spare cash. If anything, just to pick up Skies of Arcadia and Grandia II.

Thanks for suggestions. Soul Calibur is fun. I played it tonight at a friend's house. I will have to buy it.

I have been grabbing as much as I can. I am still looking for Twinsticks. I am more concerned about the accessories disappearing than the games. I already have the maraccas, arcade sticks, extra controlers, etc. I NEED NEED NEED the twinsticks.
