GameStop indeed: only used GBA games from now on
The Cheap Ass Gamer forums are lit up with this one. It’s a rumor, but one that has no reason to be false. Plans are to slap “used” tags on new, unopened boxes to get rid of the stock and make space for the future. A complicated, GBA-less future in which you’re forced to touch and move things and have excellent hand-eye coordination. Just like Back to the Future 2. It’ll reduce prices though, so you can probably get some cool deals on old classics before they move into the homeless shelter also known as eBay in 2009.
Over the years, i’ve always been drawn into those impulse buys of GBA games at GameStop, like the 2-for-1 deal or the buy 2 get 1 free. One game that i’ve always eyed but circumstances never let me have was Rebelstar: Tactical Command. (The name alone gets me.) It’s an RTS in the vein of some old PC game called X-Command i think. Any of you ever played these games? Maybe it’s meant to be that i haven’t gotten it yet. And if you’re in the mood for a warning, do not bother with Scurge: Hive on GBA. Wasn’t worth the $15.
Remember you hoodlums, the Micro is still the best handheld out there.
