As to not dirty up the PC deals thread. I tend to not notice these deals as often as the PC deals due to rarely ever checking out the shops on the consoles.

But today and tomorrow, for the Wii, if you are a Club Nintendo member you can get Super Mario RPG for 200 coins. Usually 800 Wii Points. A good deal since the coins are just rewards for buying games/consoles and taking surveys. I had 410 coins on my account so I went ahead and purchased it. For the most part the rewards are kind of "Meh" but this one was a nice bonus.

What an amazing coincidence. I have 200 coins and loved that game.

OK nm I completely misinterpreted that. I dont have a club membership or 200 coins, I have 200 wii points.

200 coins isn't a lot, you might have 200 coins worth of rewards waiting to be done on site.

Super Mario RPG was one of the few SNES games to utilize a processor chip on the cartridge as well as the hardware of the SNES. An interesting feature of the SNES that allowed developers to increase the power of the SNES by using the cartridge to handle some of the processing.

Yeah I know but all systems now days have a good bit more Processing power even with 2 chips. Alot of it is optimization and full use of the hardware with the PSP, the Evo plays it just fine but the controls are terrible (i hate on screen). I mean the SNES only had like a 21 Mhz (Aprox) CPU? 64 kb of Vram? There is no reason my PSP which has clocks of up to 333Mhz shouldnt be able to run SNES games well. Its all the encoding and program optimization.

Well, that's what I mean. The emulation problems come from the emulators not being optimized for the additional feature of the cartridge processing.

Ni No Kuni for the PS3, only $19.97

Well worth it, if you didn't get it back at release.

If you wait, Amazon has it as their Gold Box deal today at 3pm PDT.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/goldbox

Not sure how cheap it will be, maybe they'll go down to 19.99. Amazon has better shipping prices.

There are a lot of other console deals throughout the day as well.

Apparently there are some big deals on Xbox Live right now. You'll have to log into Live on the xbox to see them all, cause I don't think they are listed online.

Assassins Creed 3 $15
Prey $3
Max Payne 3 $10
Crysis $5
Divinty II $5
Mass Effect $5
Bulletstorm $5
Dragon Age $5
Perfect Dark Zero $3
Command and Conquer: Red Alert $5
Brother's in Arms: ****'s Highway $5

If you got the MS Points cards back at the Xbox One announcement, that's 66% off on top of those prices. (I'm fairly certain you can just press X to pay with MS Points instead of cash value).

I think there are more to come.

I was just complaining the other day about how it is still full price on PSN even though the season is half over. ****, Madden '12 is still like $40 or $50 on there. They really need to discount these games more often. They'd drive sales that way. Anyway, thanks for the link. Totally bought it.

Good news if you buy 3DS rpgs.

Get $30 credit if you register Fire Emblem Awakening and the soon to be released Shin Megami Tensei IV on Club Nintendo.

I only hope it counts if I already registered FE Awakening? I'm guessing yes, that all it cares is I have both games registered...

Edit:
Complete details.
http://club2.nintendo.com/30/

Already registered FE? That's OK! This is a win for me because I had already preordered SMT IV for the limited edition bonus, and already own/registered FE. So I get the 30 dollar credit without having to do anything I haven't already done.

I have platinum but those rewards are pretty meh. I was hoping they would give out chance for a GBA game or something. I already have all of the 3ds games except the samurai one which I am not interested in. I will probably get the OST if it is physical cause at least then my heirs can sell it for 5 bucks or something

Maybe I'll get super smash brothers for the Wii if it is not wii-u only

I think it's Wii or Wii U (I put the / in there to signify both).

And I think the OST is a physical item.

I used part of my 30 dollar credit to buy Crimson Shroud. Very interesting game. It's like playing Mage Knight on your 3DS. Your characters and the enemies are even figurines with bases and everything. I've got about four hours in, which isn't long because there is a lot of dialog and fights can take 10 minutes or so. But the battle system seems pretty good. I actually reached a point where I don't know where to go (really early on) and don't want to open a guide yet, so I've back tracked a few times and been trying out a few fights getting a hang of the battle system.

Not exactly sure what I want to spend my free money on next.

Alright... there has to be a Crimson Shroud 2. (It's a relatively short game).

I have about 11 hours on my save, admittedly a lot of grinding. I reached the final battle and kind of knew it was the end, but wasn't really expecting it to end so soon, so I thought maybe they'd continue it somehow. But no, it ended.

But there is a NG+ mode, and grinding out the best gear/skills.

Code of Princess is 10 dollars off (so $19.99) on the eshop until July 28. Probably the best deal I've seen on the shop in terms of the size of the price cut. Bodes well for the idea that some digital downloads will get cheaper over time. It is a hybrid fighting game/RPG from Atlus.

Have you tried Picdun 2? Looks like Etrian Odyssey style gameplay, map exploration, etc. Just don't know if it sucks or not. I'm not sure if the battle system holds up, or if the large breasted anime characters are its only draw.

I grabbed Picdun 2 the other day. I've only played 7 or 8 levels, but I don't think it was worth the $5. The combat's just too simple. The main character doesn't attack, only defends. The female character is the one who attacks based on what you tell her to do. Each of the three female companions has an attack they're better at than the others, but you only get one companion at a time. So for combat you have the option of a horizontal, vertical, or power attack if you time a block properly.
The exploration itself is kind of bad too. Whether or not to continue exploring or to move onto the next level is usually a big decision in dungeon crawlers, but the purpose of Picture Dungeon is to hit every tile in the level to reveal the picture. And despite having a touchscreen, you find hidden doors, hit switches, and read signs by running into them. I'm usually not a fan of using the stylus, but one of the few games where it would have made sense, it isn't used.

Pretty much what I had thought. Gonna hold off on that one.

If Unchained Blades wasn't $29.99 I think I'd buy that right now. That one looks like it has some depth to it's combat system.

I ended up buying Anonymous Notes I, II, and III. And also Denpa Men 1. Didn't have enough left for Denpa Men 2.

The only thing I don't like about some of these 3DS (And DS, like TWEWY, for that matter) games is there use of Streetpass and sensing Wifi HotSpots to get game items, etc. I live in a remote area so when ever I get to use my system, there isn't much around me.

Denpa gets around that by giving you QR codes that you can share to get the little dudes, but you still have to progress through a couple dungeons before that, and right now I have only one guy with a skill (Tiny Heal). No offensive, defensive, supportive, etc. skills. Beyond that, it's a fun game. Simple, yet still fun.

Not sure. Kingdom Hearts 3D solves it by adding preprogrammed AI street pass groups all over, so you don't really tell the difference (Other than they are all named after SE characters, like Shantoto and Tidus, etc.)

But like right now in Denpa 1, I have caught all the Denpa Men around my house (only 7 total) and cannot get any more without resorting to scanning QR codes for pre determined characters. From what I read it doesn't reset the signals based on time, which would be a bit nicer. Every 12 or 24 hours you can gather more randoms from the same spots, but so far it doesn't sound like that is the case.
