  • So all the bottom of the barrel stuff is on sale... sweet!!
  • It's all halloween stuff.  What did you expect?  I've seen most of these movies and they are far from the bottom of the barrel.  IMO.
  • They should offer a discount for Arizona Sunshine, for those who are WMR equipped. Great game. But I'm glad they didn't, because I bought it recently and any discount on it days after would annoy me.
