It's not a deal, but according to EB/Gamestop, Okami will retail for $40 rather than the usual $50.

So far this is the only deal I can sniff courtesy of my thread requesting pre-order deals at CAG:

Get an 'artboard' with preorder from Gamestop.

Finally got the soundtrack about a week ago...

All's I got's to say is that if they put as much care and devotion into the game as they did with the soundtrack, this game is going to be beyond amazing.

I have sooo much on my plate right now, but I don't care.  I f'n want Okami right NOW!

Yeah yeah yeah and you will hype it up and hype it up and hype it up and when you get it you will be mostly dissapointed. Or something. Just as usual.

Gosh that actually sounds like someone else with anything Elder Scrolls...and you know what I'm totally blanking on who that was...got so hyped and then didn't love it. Happened over and over. Who was that?

I dunno..Hetz? Hetz really likes the games though, he just doesn't give them as much time as you would think given his hype. Mytocles maybe? She hyped it up like crazy and didnt play it that much in the end.

And the game I was thinking of for TML was Gal Civ 2, which he hyped himself into buying and then hated. GG!

I put a pre-order down on this one this afternoon.  Seems like it may end up being pretty rare, so I figured I'd better lock one down.  'Artsy' games are hit & miss with me (I didn't like either Ico or Shadow of the Colossus, which are the two that inevitably come up), but this one looks pretty amazing.  Definately excited to see what they can do.

I still have that bumper sticker on my car, faggorts.  Yes, faggorts.  It's a new word, I just made it up.  I display it proudly, too...not as a fan of Dead Rising, but as a gamer.  I really want a create-your-own...something like, "Solid Snake is my hero" or "I'd rather be gaming" - but the DR sticker'll do for now.  There's a Play-Asia logo on it; gotta represent, rightright?

GalCiv2.  Don't know how I got so hyped up into that game frown  Brad's super, long-winded write-ups had a large part in it, dangit.  I was trying to forget about that one, thanks CAL.

ANYWAY, BACK TO OKAMI -

This one's different, guys.  I can feel it and I am excited.  This screenie just about sums it up.  Next-gen consoles can push more polys, more light-shaders (or whatever), "shinier"-looking techno-futuristic mecha-men; but next-gen doesn't automatically mean more beautiful.  From what I've seen, Okami rivals anything I've seen that could be classified as "next-gen."



Gorgeous. 

Don't forget that preordering the game gets you a free...art...board?...from GameStop.  Maybe there's a sticker on the cover that could replace my DR bumper sticker biggrin biggrin

No you don't.  You sent it to my brother when he bought Dead Rising from you.

In fact, I'm looking at the unused sticker right now.

my guess (based on the observation that he always did kinda specialize in 'generation of microsoft system/game pre-release hype' -type topics): post-360/oblivion, his 'services' were no longer required?...

Heh, I think you are joking but just in case that is absolutely not true. Hetz, I believe, does successful mortgage work-he definately doesn't shill for MS smile Either way, I know he loved the game in the end, just not sure if he played it as much as he thought he would. Actually havent talked to him in several months, he kinda dissapeared a bit.

Two orders from Play-Asia = two free DR stickers.  I felt like it would be a nice gesture to send my second one along with the copy of the game.

So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I like this more than Zelda  :slywink: Maybe the gameplay will be more interesting with the art scheme.
