Oceanhorn on thecurrent Humble Jumbo 6 Bundle on http://www.humblebundle.com isn't the best game, as it's quite brief and easy but it's decent value for the price. It is very obviously a wannabe Legend of Zelda game, although I suppose that's fine since many people want Zelda games on third party platforms. This offer is for the P.C. version, although

Normally, I wouldn't recommend a game quite like this since I personally think it's just decent, rather than great and it's not like a famed classic either. However, the circumstance is somewhat exceptional because I know some of the old Squaresoft composers worked on the soundtrack, who are more specifically, Nobuo Uematsu and Kenji Ito. Stylistically, it's closer to Zelda music than Final Fantasy music but if you ever wondered what it might be if those guys did work on The Legend of Zelda, this is probably as close as you can get..

Since it's a D.R.M. free game you can also pay as little as a penny for the download, which isn't much to lose even if you just consider it for the music, although if you want the steam code for it as well as the cheapest steam only games which accompany it in the bundle, you'll need to pay at least a buck. There are some Shadow Run games in there too if you like that series.

Black Friday's coming up and there are some sales already going - one I'll call out quickly here is for the now-discontinued Disney Infinity. If you wanted to get in on it before it's gone forever, or if you just want to scoop up some heavily discounted figures for the game you already have, check out Toys R Us.

If you're a rewards member, you can get starter kits for every system for $10, marked down from $65. You can get character packs of two figures also for $10, and you can get single figures buy one, get three free - or $15 for $60 worth of figures. I just snapped up a Star Wars starter pack for Wii U and four additional figures for my daughter for Christmas for a grand total of $25 shipped to my door.

Final Fantasy Tactics for both iOS and Android are marked down currently to just $3.99, by far the lowest price ever for that game. If you don't have it, you now have absolutely no excuse.

I forgot if I asked, but are these the War of the Lions version or just the PS1 version?

Also, not a deal, but I hear that Atelier FIris is coming to Steam.

Always WotL for mobile. And with the original WotL slowdown bug fixed, so it's a ton more playable.

On the CoN Youtube channel, you can see a few episodes of a WotL stream that DP and I did for a month or so before we ran out of time if you're curious about that version still.

Gamestop's having an online buy two get one free deal on used "vintage games" until the 3rd. Given that the current market values are quite high, this is a good opportunity to save some cash on games you want to play, and resell on ebay when you've finished to earn a little extra cash. It seems like their prices seem to be the lowest to begin with, even when I don't factor in the discount so this is quite interesting. Their backlog is rather sizable, so you might want to restrict any searches you do to "in stock and shipping" during the next 24 hours.

Naturally, I've been placing multiple orders into multiples of three for games of the same price, so that I can get the most expensive games I can for free, because otherwise the cart manages things so that the cheapest game you have available is the free one. I never really liked this system because it's so arbitrary and inconvenient, but at least I don't have to wait in line and question the prices I should be getting for taking a load of games off hand like I might in a retail store.

I do not even have to leave the house since an order of $35 or more gets me free shipping. How convenient. I'm mostly ordering gameboy games right now and I'm considering ordering some as replacements for my S.N.E.S. versions, so I can resell them for a profit, although I probably won't due to sound differences, comparatively washed out colors and most importantly the smaller resolution (which probably means a smaller visible playing area compared to the originals). It is still tempting though.

Final Fantasy IV, V and Tactics Advanced for the Gameboy Advanced and to a lesser extent, Dragon Warrior III and Dragon Warrior Monsters I or II seem like particularly interesting purchases for members of our website, although there are other games that might be of more general interest too.

I've been a little put off on purchases such as these recently, since games have gotten so much more expensive from when I used to collect them, and the days when secondhand cartridges were in the bargain bins of video game stores. This makes it fiscally reasonable again for at least a short duration.

Also, I give commendations to Gamestop for selling these games again, even if it is only online. When did they start doing this? Hopefully this'll mark the beginning of a generalized downward pricing trend. I somehow doubt it, but their listing for Pocky and Rocky II is the lowest I've seen, even if it is still three digits in cost...

P.S. This may be childish, but they have Battletoads! Now I've seen just about everything there is to be seen!

Hmm, I probably should have included that. Unfortunately,l the sale was over by the time you asked, but it is one of the links to narrow results in their search bar. This should lead you to it. I wouldn't recommend buying discs from them, since they don't seem to include the boxes as shown by my first shipment but cartridges rarely ever come with the boxes anyway so those might still be worth looking at.

These aren't not the greatest deals in the world, but right now I think they're the ones that are probably most relevant to our community because they represent what's available for fans of the newest and oldest game in the Final Fantasy series.

If you a want Final Fantasy XV, now might be a good time to buy it since the standard edition is $35 today on Amazon, which is almost half off of the M.S.R.P. of $60 for a brand new copy of a recently released game. One of the great things about buying it from Amazon is that as you may already know, the Caves of Narshe is a member of the affiliate program, so I made sure to make that an affiliate link using our special tool for the purpose.

Also, while it's not going to be discounted and probably not worth a post on its own, but as long as I am here, I may as well mention that rumor has it that Best Buy will have N.E.S. classic editions back in stock today in "limited quantities" at the physical retailers, which is to say by the time you're reading this they'll probably be gone. It seems like the last available opportunity to get them before Christmas, so if any of you have the opportunity and want to give it as a gift this year without paying more than it's actually worth, you might want to check out Best Buy to see if any are left. It's relevant to us since this system does have the original Final Fantasy game that started it all among its selection of titles. You know, the one you folk think is so "borked". While enhanced versions of Final Fantasy have been released in the past, I think this might be the first time the N.E.S. version has been re-released for anybody curious about what the stock system or original aesthetic might be like.

Edit
I accidentally used markdown instead of BB code for the last link. Also, thanks to R51 for the new link.

I debated posting the XV sale in here instead of news, so now we've got it in both. biggrin.gif I'll edit your post to have the fancy short URL that the AmaCoN tool can't yet make, just to make it easier for folks.

The NES version of FF1 has had only one release in the West after the original in 1990, and that's for the Wii Virtual Console. The NES Classic version might end up being the more reasonable to get hands on nowadays! (Also, I should get that onto the FF1 homepage at some point...)

Although it will probably decrease my odds of getting one myself, I just thought I would let you guys know that Thinkgeek is having a drawing for having the privilege to purchase one of their six N.E.S Classic Editions tomorrow. I figure it'll increase the odds that a Caves of Narshe member will get the opportunity, which I would prefer to anybody else getting it, especially since I think we would be less likely to resell for double or triple the price. If you want to buy one, you should probably sign up now using your email address, and increase your odds by using the Twitter, Facebook and Instagram options.


Given how scarce the stock for the N.E.S. classic edition has been, frequently selling out within minutes, if I fail to get it this way, I'll probably end up purchasing a RetroUSB A.V.S. instead. The price isn't nearly as good, as it's an expensive product where you need to bring your own cartridges, but it's a different sort of product than anything that has been released so far. It uses a field programmable gate array configured to behave exactly like the Ricoh chips Nintendo used, so for the most-part it should be just as good as playing on an actual N.E.S. I'll mention more about that later.

The reason for going through that bother, rather than modding an actual N.E.S. or running the N.E.S. signal through an upscaler, is mostly because the N.E.S. doesn't have easy access to the analog R.G.B. signal, requiring different and more exotic hardware like a Playchoice 10 P.P.U. or a custom made board to get a higher quality signal than Composite Broadcadst Video Signal. It comes out to be the same cost as accquring all of the requisite hardware to perform the mod alone, let alone any labor involved with the installation.

It also line triples the resolution from 240p to 720p almost instantly, so that's a plus. The main downsides are that there are no analog outputs, and the video signal output won't work with R.O.B. or the Lightgun but that only accounts for 20 of the licensed games. They're $15 off while they're on preorder due to manufacturing delays caused by the chinese new year, so now's as good a time as any to buy one. I've been meaning to post about this for a while now, but at such an insubstantial discount (less than 10%) it didn't really seem like a good enough deal to mention on its own.

Finally, there are two days left in the Overwhelmingly Positive bundle, and 9 days left in the best of 2016 bundle on humblebundle.com so if you haven't been keeping track of them recently, now's a seemingly good chance to get the best games available lately. The Games I'm most interested in in the overwhelmingly positive bundle are Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, Epic Battle Fantasy 4, Day of the Tentacle Remastered and VA-11 Hall-A. Shantae and Epic Battle Fantasy are bottom tier games so I'll probably be grabbing those at least.

I haven't bought this bundle because Shantae isn't DRM-free (which it could be considering that it's on GOG) and I'm not really interested in any of the others (except possibly VA-11 Hall-A).

So apparently the licensing for the music used in Alan Wake had an expiration date, meaning the game will no longer be for sale anywhere in the near future. Least that's the reason I heard for why it's on Steam right now for only $3.

The current Humble Bundle for games will get you Grim Fandango Remastered and The Stanley Parable if you go over the average (currently $5.50 at this writing!). That seems like a really good deal to me. Going over $10 will also get you Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and Day of the Tentacle Remastered.

This is the NES game, actually. They are kind of wildly different from each other.

Disney Afternoon Collection???

I just found out about this from searching the tag 'retro' on steam as their summer sale has begun today...a little bird told me

Cool beans, picked it up. Now I will pogo cane my geriatric waterfowl upon the unsuspecting gorilla population of The Amazon Rainforest

Aww, Tailspin! I used to love that game on my megadrive.


This is the NES game, actually. They are kind of wildly different from each other.

Ah, I should have probably looked properly! Still it's a good deal.

Square Enix and Gamestop are doing a deal for the next couple weeks, where if you buy a new-ish Final Fantasy game off the new-games rack, you can get a code for a free digital copy of Spirits Within, Advent Children, or Kingsglaive. The offer's good on Zodiac Age, XIV, XV, Type-0, and World of Final Fantasy. Not a bad deal if you were thinking of picking up Zodiac Age anyway, since that's a new release this week.

If anybody wants a Playstation 4, Newegg Flash is selling them with 500 gigabyte hard drives for $209, with an offer for a mail in $20 rebate card (which makes the final cost $189, assuming that the rebate goes through without a hitch). Given that the cheapest preowned Playstation 4 consoles on Gamestop are about $250, that's at least 40-$60 savings, which is about enough to buy one brand new boxed game of your choice for it. The sale's supposed to be going on going on for the next six days, but they might run out of stock early.

It seems like a good price if anybody is aching to have it now, but since the Playstation 4 has been out for a while now, do keep in mind that hardware has a tendency to become obsolete and depreciate in value.

Thanks. What's Psychonauts? Don't answer that, it was rhetorical.

I have no idea what this game is but apparently it's known? People say good things about this game?

I'll try it, I'm yer huckleberry

Humble Store is offering Civilization III for free for another day and change. (For clarification: Steam key only.)

This reminds me, I should play Civ V which a certain friend gave to me...maybe it'll sate the desire to do civ-building (e.g. in Age of Empires) that I occasionally have.

I never played any of the previous Civ games - but did purchase Civ 6 this past year on release.

Very fun - entertaining - interesting game - but it takes sooooooo damn long to finish a game... kinda upsetting as I just don't have that kind of time and I wish I did!

For PS4 owners, Amazon has already started matching Black Friday prices on PS4 controllers.

http://amzn.to/2iGOqKa

They're $25 off today in every color, which makes them only sort of ludicrously expensive. I just grabbed one in Silver so I didn't have to wait until Friday.
