I got Pokémon Rumble Blast, Kirby Mass Attack, and Okamiden!

Today until November 5th Target is holding a sale on all games in stock Buy 2 Get 1 Free. I got back an hour or two ago and picked up Pokémon Rumble Blast for the 3DS, and Kirby Mass Attack & Okamiden for the DS.

Apparently there was some glitch going around where you could Buy 1 & Get 1 Free but now the stores are starting to realize it and canceling the sales once management informs them of the error. Some people were able to take advantage of it while others were flat out denied. I didn’t even know about this glitch until after I got home with the games, lol. If I knew I would’ve picked up Professor Layton’s latest game for the DS, oh well.

I probably won’t be playing any of my new games today unless I get bored or annoyed with Solatorobo as I want to finish it before I start anymore games. Lets just say I have a big backlog. Kirby’s Return to Dreamland & Sonic Generations will be here on Monday & Tuesday respectively, so I am going to be a very very busy gamer for a good while.

They also had preorder cards for Super Mario 3D Land & Mario Kart 7 and both come with $5 Target gift cards when you pick them up, so I went and got those too. 🙂

Solatorobo GET!

So a possible contender for Game of the Year has arrived at my house today. The game is Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, a spiritual sequel to a game on the original PlayStation called “Tail Concerto”. Anyway, the game is said to be an action RPG I think? As of this writing I haven’t played it yet, currently I am listening to the awesome soundtrack that was included at no extra charge.

Thank you to XSEED Games who took it upon themselves to bring the game to North American gamers and for throwing in a cool bonus soundtrack CD. ❤

Fossil Fighters: Champions

Glad to see that the Nintendo DS is still getting support from Nintendo. Hopefully we’ll continue to see support in the future with more localized games from Japan. ^_^
