It's been one of those weekends with lots of travel, driving, stress and to top it off I missed out on a number of great gaming deals. Let's pour a cup of your favorite beverage and go through the list.
BestBuy.com was having a rather nice President's Day sale this weekend and no matter how hard I tried, it just wouldn't work out. I wish I had seen Emily Rogers' twitter feed earlier that day instead of doing silly things like working. I was all set to buy Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask ($14.99), Kid Icarus Uprising ($14.99) and Skyward Sword ($19.99), but fell asleep Friday evening. To my dismay SS was sold out and both 3DS games were no longer shipping; only available via store pickup.
Since I was going out of town the next day picking it up locally wasn't an option and technically I could have worked it out to find inventory while on the road, but with the chaos that is our life that's just not possible. I have plenty to keep me busy, but that was a decent savings which may not come around for awhile.
Though as an honorable mention they were also selling Paper Mario: Sticker Star for $19.99. It was still available for shipping and while it looks like a quality game it just doesn't seem like my thang.
Freaking Amazon slipped StarCraft II in today's lightening deals for $17.99. Honestly their recent Tuesday deals have been barely notable to even look at and it was mixed in with a bunch of Disney stuff.
Anyway, so I'm keeping an eye out for what drops next and am not missing out!!
Did any of you take part in the BestBuy or other recent sales to nab some great games? Did the Wii U eat up all your money? :)
