Thanks for that Paper Mario deal!

I've noticed this game is being discounted left and right at retailers (a couple weeks ago it was like $8 at Best Buy).... any reason why? It's weird for a first party game to be SO cheap that isn't even that old.

Because it sucks.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Because it's an RPG without RPG mechanics, reason to battle, story, or characters.

Oh I see, well it's only $10 so if I don't like it, it's not a big loss at all lol

Sure enough! Who knows, maybe you'll be one of those doods that like it? Can't go too wrong for $10.

Yeah $10 is not a big deal to take a risk on it.

Have to say the deal department is very lacking, also surprised no Eshop sales for Cyber Monday.

They are an online retailer at the very least, they do sell games much like how steam is both a retailer and a platform(difference being competition). Just look at Sony,was a sale banaza over there with digital products.

Ok should have said that better they aren't an online retailer like the sense of Amazon or Best Buy.com or even Walmart. That's what I was getting at.

Obviously, still does not bar them from having sales on one of the biggest sale days.

Now the hope for Christmas sales begins.

Picked up Paper Mario for $10. Surprised to hear all the hate for the game on here. I have been curious about it, so I think $10 is a decent investment, because I hear some people say they hate it and others say the love it. I liked Mario & Luigi: Dream Team a lot, and some people I know said they enjoyed Paper Mario Sticker Star more.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Amazon has the exact same bundle for $5 less and it also comes with 3 other games. You can still jump on it and cancel your order with Walmart if you jump on it.

@darthmawl Ouch... that sucks. Still, it looks like a snazzy device. I just got one through the Amazon deal. I look forward to seeing it in the mail tomorrow.

And hey, for what it's worth, Uncharted was already on PS Plus, Retro City Rampage isn't all that great, and Sly Cooper is available pretty cheap, and even then it's not a must. So you still got a good deal.

Is the 32 gb card available over there?
