$6 for Duke Nukem Forever? It was $5 last Black Friday.

$10 for Dark Void? This thing's been cheap everywhere, including being $2.99 at Sears.

$30 for Prototype 2? Uh, no.

Nintendogs? This was $5 last Black Friday and now it's $10.

Yet this stuff's selling out in mere seconds or minutes. I just don't understand.

We can't get awesome deals these days because people jump at mediocrity.

People like to think they're getting a deal. Plus, gamers aren't the only people jumping on these. A lot of people who don't need half these games are terrible.

Well, maybe some people want the deals now? Perhaps somebody didn't have a 3DS or a PS360 last year but now they do and they decided to buy Duke Nukem or Nintendogs or whatever.

I've pretty much come to terms with the fact that I'm not getting Dishonored tomorrow.

Online? Because tomorrow I'm not going to any freakin' stores. A bit of travel, a lot of eatin, and one hell of a nap is all that is in store for me.

I was noticing that too. Maybe they just had a small amount of these games.

So I added the two Nintendogs games and Steel diver to my cart from the Gold Box and it took off tons of money. All 3 for $8.15. Haha. Too bad I own 2 of the 3.
