    Good guess but I don't think it's out yet.

    Contra IV more likely.

    The second one is probably Master of Illusion.

    So with Advance Wars I've spent entirely too much money on Amazon, on games, in less than seven days.

    And GTA IV comes out the 29th.

    My wallet is crying...

    It's really a shame that Space Invaders Extreme isn't out until June, otherwise the third deal would be that, no doubt.

    But that's coming out at $20 anyway, so...

    I'm pondering CoD4. I have it in my shopping cart, but we'll see. I'd be incredibly happy with Contra IV if that's #3.

    I also have Advance Wars in my cart, but I keep thinking about how every time I buy an Advance Wars game, never come close to finishing it.

    Hot diggity! I put Advance Wars in my cart. Since it's not a lightning deal, I don't have to worry about missing out as long as I buy it today, correct?

    Does adding something to your cart "claim" a copy for you? Or do you have to actually purchase?

    If I'm understanding the FAQ correctly, adding it to your cart claims the item, but you have to check out the same day or else the offer expires.

    Well I'm working till 10, so the only other game I can get is "assassins creed"

    How does that play on the DS? I heard it was somewhat decent

    Only games I can vouch for being good are AW: DoR and CoD4. I've heard good things about Transformers though, but not that good.

    Just to quote a few reviews:
    Filled with flaws, underwhelming action and lack of staying power, Assassin's Creed composes a chronicle of mediocrity.
    Altair's Chronicles is a stale, uninventive rendition of the universe of our favorite wall-jumping assassin, Altair and should be avoided at all costs.
    But ultimately, the point is that if you’re looking for a portable recreation of Assassin’s Creed, this isn’t it.
    Much like Altair himself, Assassin's Creed for the DS is an unlikable mess.

    I can't claim to have played it myself, but really, there are so many fantastic platformers for the DS, why would you waste your money on a subpar one, even at a discount?

    Since this is a Deals thread, I just wanted to say that


    Sega has just dropped the price of SuperStars Tennis for all consoles down to $20

    and $15 for the NDS version


    I hear it's a great game, so I'm definitely going to grab it later this weekend.

    You mean Superstars Tennis, that came out like a month ago, is $20?

    For all platforms?

    Checked the Gamestop website, and they are all listed at those prices.
