Talking about price drops

So yeah they've been a hot topic as of late. So let's discuss the games we think should drop.

CRYSTAL DEFENDERS!!! At least drop it to the iPods price of $4.99! It's the same game with mediocre "touch" controls.

Sim City, it's only been out a month, but the second it even goes does to even 7.99, I'd get it. I've owned many-a-simcity's back in the day, so $10 doesn't seem worth it to me, but I'm sure many would get it.

Silent Hill: The Escape looks really really crappy, but the fan in me wants to play it. I don't support crappy games, ever, but cheap crappy games, that's different.

Low Grav Racer, mainly because I already have like 8 racing games, plus Need for Speed when it comes out.

That's it I guess...

Thank you for sharing your unbelievably negative thoughts with us.

I for one liked all of those games.

I love it when people start a new thread to share their personal opinion on games for which at least two different threads have already been made. Personally, I think Rolando should drop more

Glass half empty?

I'm guessing that wildmatt is a "glass half empty" person...

I think in the case of the App Store, the glass is just too big for some people.

I Love Katamari,
because it's not as smooth and fast as the PSP version even though the iPhone version is already simpler and uglier.

Er. The games that just dropped like BIA, HoS and Rolando's pretty good too... Never said any of those games sucked (but Silent Hill does look boring...), and keep in mind I've never played any of them besides the lite version of CRYSTAL DEFENDERS. It just seems weird to me, that a port of an ipod game would be higher priced then the original game.

And to the glass half full remark... Nah my booze is always FULL GLASS till I down it, then refill it. :P
But seriously I have 4 pages of games already, plus my PSP, PS3, 360 and all my games.

silent hill was not good. at least not compared to almost anything else for it's price. I am really sad I was so anticipant over that title.
