They restocked on Kingdoms and NWN2:MotB at the target near my apartment, but they're still priced at 20 bucks.  I swear, there's absolutely no rhyme or reason on these clearance sales.

I picked up Star Wars : Empire At War for $5 today.  I'm still waiting for MoTB to drop to $5, and even though it entered clearance at the same time SW:EAW did, it's still $10 frown

I got Kingdoms for $15 last week after waiting ages (it felt like) for it to drop. I almost picked up Virtua Tennis 3 for $10 for PS3 at the same time.

One has to be decisive at these Target clearances: if you're still unsure of a game's worth at $7.48, then it was never meant to be. Forget about it. 'Cause you come back a week later, and those six or seven copies have all been bought up - maybe by some ruthless EBayer? I don't know.

If stuff isn't coming up at the prices that others are finding make sure you scan the upc if you have the aisle scanners. Different stores drop prices at different times but it never hurts to double check as I've fond stuff that was cheaper than the latest tagging.

i have found different prices between stores quite often, even when those stores are in the same district.  not sure why, but one of the guys i asked said it's all dependent on each store's quantity.  like 2 copies of heavenly sword would still be 60, but 5 copies would get the cut to 30.  logical?  hell no.  but then this is the store where 2 360 hd-dvd drives were going for 180 two weeks after ms cut the price to 50.  i saw one drive a few weeks back still sitting there at the same price.

best option is to buy and trade with people.

btw, unless anyone wants it, i am going to return the 2nd copy of pgr4 i grabbed a while back.

I went to a different Target today and they had a ton of stuff on clearance, although most of it was the same things mentioned before. 

I did pick up a copy of Mega Man Powered Up for the PSP for $7.48, and there were a few more copies.  I was never able to find this game when it was $19.99, so for less than 8 bucks I'm more than happy!

Dunno, haven't installed or played yet.

BTW, if anyone sees the NWN 2 expansion for $10 or less, lemme know.

cheapassgamer.com has a huge Target Clearance thread - but I've found that my local Targets have been thouroughly cleaned out. I've had luck finding PC games I'm interested in but it's usually the last copy so I've been fortunate in the timing. Today, the Target I stopped at had some slightly damaged (only the box covers slightly waterlogged) boxed jewel case style games so I picked up for $4.98 each: Buccaneers Bounty, Blitzkrieg 2 and Disciples Gold. Disciples Gold has the 4 games in the Disciples 2 series - the first three of which I bought and played - but I had to get "Rise of the Elves".  I've already have these games somewhere; so maybe it wasn't really a bargain.

Saw the expansion at my local target for $4.98.  They had 4 or 5 of them left.  Let me know if you want me to pick it up for you.

I grabbed Medieval 2: Kingdoms for $8.  I passed on NWN2 for $5, and the expansion for $8 because I don't see myself ever getting around to playing them.  Also saw Dawn of War Platinum for $8, which I totally would've gotten if I didn't have them all already, and Pirates of the Burning Sea for $13.
