Why is Metal Slug 3 $2.59 in NZ but $6.99 in US? Can anyone confirm if this is going down in price? Metal Slug 1 is $2.59 in NZ also. if both are going to be US $1.99 tonight I'll grab both!

Nice!

Still waiting for Slug X!

(My favorite, and yes - I've got a 6-slot MVS in the garage... )

They're different games.

Slug 3 has a few multiple paths you can take, zombie mode and is considerably longer than Slug 1, that being said - longer is not always better - I find that Slug 3 goes on a little too long, and don't play it as much as 1 and X (X is a remix of 2 with much better timing and fewer slowdowns due to code optimization.)

I guess it boils down to if you want to play more Metal Slug or not. The original arcade games are all good, though 4 & 5 are a bit showing in the fact that Playmore was mostly tacking things onto an old game engine.

But that description is for MS3, no? That's what it keeps referring to at least.
