Yesterday I went to Best Buy to get Overlord. They were sold out, but I picked up Peaceful Warrior. So I went to the Circuit City a block away to see if they had it, and I had just been talking to my wife about how I found out that Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth isn’t available anymore directly from Amazon, and all the sellers there are selling it for more than the original retail price, so I think it is out of print. Best Buy didn’t have it when I went to get either that or Puzzle Quest (fortunately they had one copy of PQ). I was also telling her about how I’d skipped Fable (which I only ever got to play through the beginning of, since I never had an original Xbox) on sale for $8 a few weeks ago because I figured I’d wait for Fable 2 and also because it wasn’t The Lost Chapters.

Well, we get to Circuit City and I had read in the ad that they had some % off of their clearance games, so I dug through those boxes and came up with nothing I wanted (we got a couple DS games for my step-daughter, though). They didn’t have Overlord there, either, and I was thinking we should go to Fry’s and if Fry’s had Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth I’d get that rather than Overlord. Then I found Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth at Circuit City… the label was wrong, it said Valkyrie Profile 2, but I figured it would be $40. I also found Fable: The Lost Chapters for $10. Awesome, I wasn’t really expecting to ever be able to get Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth at this point… and then we get to the checkout and the guy rings it up and… $17!

“Happy birthday, merry Christmas,” my wife said, smiling. Neither of those are soon but it sure felt like it. I’m still giddy about both finds. $17! Awesome…
