Amazon's Gold Box is full of DS treasures [update 5]

Hey, guess what? You can buy Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Amazon today (and today only) for $25.99!

What a minute -- why are we posting about a Brawl deal on DS Fanboy, of all places? Because, friends, that's just the tip of the iceberg. Amazon is offering up nine Nintendo deals today, which (if our guesses are correct) includes five DS games.

Since all of the said games are published by Nintendo you might own most of them already, but if not, they're games that are definitely worth getting for cheap. So, all you stingy folks that are able to order from Amazon.com should check past the break to see what Gold Box sales are in store for you today.

Amazon busts out the Nintendo deals this Friday


Thrifty gamers, take note: Friday will see Amazon unleash a plethora of Nintendo-related sales. Starting at 12:01am PST, one deal will be revealed at a time, with a total of nine deals available over the course of the day.

As for what exactly will be on sale, we're forced to wait until Friday. That doesn't mean we can't do some snooping, though! Check out previous sales to get an idea for what Amazon will have to offer later this week.

[Thanks, sn1per!]

Spiderwick Chronicles for $7 on Amazon

The Spiderwick Chronicles may not be the best game ever, but $7 is a decent price for this fantasy game. Sure it has its faults, but such things are usually reconciled by cheapness.

Since Spiderwick is an Amazon "Deal of the Day" (along with the PS2, 360, and Wii versions, which cost a little more), it's a "take it or leave it" type thing. We imagine that most of you will choose to leave it, but those who take it will probably be able to find $7 worth of entertainment in this license-based adventure RPG.

Amazon's plethora of cheap games

Amazon's "Deal of the Day" this fine Saturday is Trace Memory, a fun adventure game reminiscent of titles like Hotel Dusk and Phoenix Wright. While not as good as the other two (in this blogger's opinion), it's still a good (albeit short) game that's worth its current $8.99 sale price.

The fine folks at Cheap Ass Gamer also noticed some other low-priced DS software at Amazon, if you're looking for filler. These include:
  • My Word Coach for $9.99
  • Lunar Dragon Song for $9.47
  • Dragon Quest Rocket Slime for $14.99
  • Magical Starsign for $14.21
  • Gunpey for $11.99
  • Wario Master of Disguise for $14.21
  • Custom Robo Arena for $18.99
  • SNK vs. Capcom Card Fighters for $14.21
  • Mega Man ZX Advent for $18.99
  • Sonic Rush Adventure for $21.99
  • Dungeon Explorer for $14.21
Those are exactly the kind of games that aren't worth buying at their full price (with perhaps a few exceptions), but are much more tempting when on sale. So, let us know if you see anything here that's worth recommending.

MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars gets fantasy price

DS Fanboy rather liked Major League Baseball 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars (even if it's a mouthful to say). Those of you that are interested in this odd but fun baseball title should consider picking it up today, though, as opposed to any other day, so that you can take advantage of Amazon's temporary sale.

Until 12am Pacific time, Amazon will have the game available for $14.99. If you don't mind outdated rosters, and you're craving a good, cheap baseball experience on your DS, this title probably won't disappoint. It may not be as weird and wacky as a Mutant League game (ah, if only), but it does offer a refreshing experience compared to some run-of-the-mill baseball titles out there.


New York Times one half

With the release of Crosswords DS this week, will a $10 price cut compel you to buy New York Times Crosswords instead?

Amazon's "Deal of the Day" happens to be everyone's favorite alf-loving crossword game (again). While $10 for any game is hard to resist, keep in mind that puzzles from the New York Times are tough -- make sure you have the mental fortitude before picking this one up. You might also want to note, though, that Mother's Day will be here soon, and this might make a nice, cheap gift for DS-owning moms.

Here come Amazon's Gold Box deals [update 2]

Just a reminder to all you friendly folks in the U.S. -- Amazon is having crazy DS deals today.

The retailer kicked off its Gold Box sales awesomely, offering Advance Wars: Days of Ruin for $16.99. If we don't say so ourselves, that is damn sweet. You have until 12am Pacific time to bite on this, but we recommend getting it sooner rather than later because we doubt supplies will last.

As for the lightning deals, we've listed them here (with our guesses for ones that haven't been confirmed yet). Keep in mind, these are in Pacific time, and each deal lasts for four hours (assuming they don't go out of stock):
We suppose that with such an awesome "Deal of the Day," we can forgive Amazon for everything else being subpar. Keep in mind, though, that these are just our guesses. We'll update the post as other sales are confirmed.


[Update 1: Master of Illusion was confirmed as the second lightning deal and was added to the post.]

[Update 2: Transformers: Autobots is the third lightning deal. And, would you look at that -- Master of Illusion sold out. Who would have thought?]

Tomorrow's Amazon Gold Box rumored to feature DS games

The word on the street is that Amazon's next game-related Gold Box special is going to feature five DS games, which (as you can imagine) we're very excited about.

The first deal in the Gold Box is the video game "Deal of the Day," and will be made available tonight (technically tomorrow) at 12am Pacific time (or 3am EDT, if you're on the East Coast like this blogger). We know that's ridiculously late to stay up for a deal, but the beauty of it is that you don't have to. Whatever the game is (many are guessing Mario Kart DS because of the upcoming Wii game, but who knows!), it will be on sale for twenty-four hours or until stock runs out.

The other four sales are considered "Lightning Deals," since the marked-down prices only last for four hours (or while supplies last). The first of these will start at 6am Pacific time, while the rest will be made available at 10am, 2pm, and 6pm.

We have some ideas of our own, but what are you hoping to see on sale?

Star Fox commands a cheaper price

If you've been waiting almost two years for a deal on Star Fox Command, today's your lucky day. While $30 might have seemed too expensive for a game that only got decent reviews, $20 probably sounds a lot more enticing. Since this is an Amazon "Deal of the Day," though, you only have until 3am EST to decide whether or not to surrender your wallet to your impulses.

This blogger never got around to playing Star Fox Command, but do any of you readers have opinions on the game that you'd like to share with potential buyers?

If you need a DS Lite adapter, today's the day to get one

Since the official DS Lite AC Adapter is a much better way to go about charging your DS than the crank we showed you earlier today, we thought we'd let you know that this accessory happens to be Amazon's video game related "Deal of the Day."

We assume that this is a useless deal for most of you, since DS Lites come with one, but we're sure some of you have either misplaced yours or want an extra for traveling. Still, be careful; while the adapter is marked off by $5 (meaning that it only costs $10), you'll have to pay for shipping unless you're a Prime member or find $15 worth of other merchandise to add to your cart. Without the free shipping, this really isn't much of a deal at all.
