Scooped up a Blue Dragon for $15 yesterday. Last one I found in the case. Was looking for one of the $10 Quake Wars, but no luck. Guess I need to keep looking for that one. I also grabbed a VGA cable for ~$12.50.

If PGR4 drops to $15 (or Blue DRagon), I'll pay someone to pick it up.

I saw Supreme Commander (and a couple others) for $14 and LOTRO for $10.  A friend also picked up Quake Wars for $10, but I wasn't able to find a copy.

Is this an expansion, or does it include the first game?

It's a stand alone expansion (does not include first game).

Found Supreme Commander for $7.98 at my local Target.

CheapAssGamers report both Supreme Commander and its expansion at the $7.98 price BUT I scanned the expansion and it showed $29.98.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if I find the expansion at yet a third price at another Target.

13.98 i think.  they had quite a few copies at the one i stopped by today. 

pgr 4 was still 29.98 though  icon_confused
they had a few random ps3 sports games and some more interesting stuff, but i'll be damned to remember what they were now.

Pick a copy of NWN2 expansion, and I'll drop you some money, although it's liable to be next Thursday.  Enough to cover shipping and all.

does it matter to you that there's a sales tax in this state?  it would add ~1.50 to the price.  total shipped would be ~20 if it was the priority shipping method.  not sure if the weight forces it into the higher bracket or not.  lmk and i will grab one for you, no probs.

Hrm.  It may only be $20 here to begin with.

If it's $20 either way, I can just grab it locally.  Okay, we'll wait to see if it drops further!

I just picked up The Godfather: Blackhand Edition (Wii) and Stranglehold (360) for $15 a piece today.  I think for that price i can certainly get some worthwhile entertainment out of them.

I need to go visit the local Target tomorrow.  I already played and traded (foolishly) Godfather, but for 15 bucks I'd happily re-add it to my library.  I'd also grab Stranglehold if they have it.

I've also seen Lair for the PS3 on clearance for about $30.  With the new patch that adds analog controls available and getting some good feedback, this might be a good chance to pick it up.

I picked up Rainbow Six Vegas at my local Target for $13.98 today.  (Hope that's a good deal, I hadn't played this series since the first one)

I also saw The Movies at the same price.  I was slightly tempted by the NWN2 expansion, but I don't own the main game yet and that was still at $30.

Man, I saw a couple copies of Supreme Commander for $7.48 today.  I was deeply tempted despite not really having a rig to run it, the desire to play an RTS game again or the need for more games right now.

Def Jam Icon was also $15 for 360/PS3, which I haven't seen mentioned before.

If there are any West Wing fans out there, they have West Wing complete seasons for $19.99. Several other TV series on DVD on sale as well.

Heroes season 1 is $19.99 too. As is 30 Rock, and The Office Seasons 2 & 3.

yeah, i actually saw a bunch of Adult Swim boxed season sets for 14.99 each.  Picked up Harvey Birdman season 1 for that price.  I hope this is a new price point on these.  they also had all the Sealab 2021, Space Ghost, Brak Show and some ATHF for that price.  Sorry, no Venture Bros. at my store, though.

Don't know if it's "clearance" per se but noticed (PC) Pirates of the Burning Sea's price was cut in half to $24.98 (with a red price tag sticker on them).

Anything with a price ending in 8 is clearance.  I picked up The Simpsons game for $12.48 and PGR 3 for $4.98, and I'm waiting for NWN2 : MOTB to get down to $5.

Damnit, I was there today and didn't notice any of the adultswim stuff cheap. Might have to go take another look. I did see the Frisky Dingo season 1 for $15, but it was in a single DVD case and pretty cheesy looking packaging.

I wonder if they are all going that route. I see AdequateBuy has one for $13 this week as well on sale.

i still have an unopened copy of pgr4 that i grabbed at 15 if anyone wants it.  otherwise, it will go back in a few days.

Just a note that at two of my Targets they have moved the clearance items out of the glass cabinets or off the shelves and put them on a clearance endcap.  I had to ask one of the Target 'red shirt' drones where they were.
