Two-Day Toys 'R' Us Buy One, Get One Half Off Game Sale

Update: A better Wii deal than we thought?

It appears to celebrate Easter, Toys R Us is offering a Friday and Saturday video game sale, among their other promotions. The Wii will also be on sale for $159.99, Toys 'R' Us's lowest advertised price, ever.

A portion of the flyer announcing the two-day sale.

The sale appears to be universal, for both retail Toys 'R' Us stores and the Toys 'R' Us online store. For the latter, the sale prices begin at 9:00 AM EST.

Update: We also just noticed this promotion.

It's tough to say for certain what accessories qualify for this bonus.

Second Update: More browsing yields a bit of a mystery. It appears on the front page of Toys 'R' Us's website, a better Wii deal awaits. Apparently the Wii is, or will be on sale for $149.99, rather than the $159.99 listed in the sale pictured above. The Toys 'R' Us deals we've found and listed are slated to become active at 9:00 AM, EST, despite the TRU website being decked out in Easter sale clothes. A quick call to a customer service representative suggested Toys 'R' Us would honor the lower price, though I didn't follow-up with a purchase of my own. For those interested in buying a Wii, consider trying to take advantage of this advertised bargain while it's available, but make sure you're promised the cost you expect to pay come check-out; Right now, the Wii sits inside my cart for $169.99, despite the front-page offer.

The deal listed here is even better than the one
mailed out to Toys 'R' Us Rewards customers.

I definitely am thinking about buying Portal 2 tomorrow. Anyone have any other recommendations?

Same deal as Amazon. I would stick with Amazon's prices before retail store.

It took a while to find it, but it looks like Amazon is doing a similar promotion. They're showing about 145 games that are subject to the deal, and do many will likely have lower prices. Thanks for the tip. For those considering buying online at all, check out Amazon's deal and compare it to TRU's, because it's definitely something to consider.

Edit: For instance, it looks like only 16 PS3 titles are eligible for Amazon's deal. Still, there's a lot of great stuff there.

ActRaiser Review Rewind

By the time the Super Nintendo was introduced, games that combined multiple genres were nothing new. Games like The Legend of Zelda, Crystalis, and The Guardian Legend were outstanding pioneers of the action/adventure variety. But developer Quintet partnered with Enix to publish ActRaiser in 1991 on the Super NES. Released just 3 months after the new home console, it was one of the earliest post-launch SNES games. Particularly outstanding is that it combines side-scrolling  action with building simulation gameplay elements. Usually, building simulations send me running for the hills because I'm terrible at them. But after spending a little time with the game, I was able to put my fears aside.
