    My order for Super Smash was canceled. I’ll email and inquire. Guess there’s no such thing as a cheap lunch, eh?

  2. RacingChikin says:

    My SmashBros order was also canceled. How disappointing!

  3. krosebud84 says:

    Super Smash Brothers for $20 woot woot.

  4. A New Challenger says:

    Signs point to the Wal-Mart thing being a massive computer (or human) fuckup (see: Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney for DS for $70.) Mass cancellations are likely.

    Didn’t stop me from placing an order for Brawl. Worth a shot!

    Portal demo?

    I just read about it on Wiki and fell in love with the song.
    I was on the fence but this might kick me over if Steam doesn’t piss me off somehow.


  6. A New Challenger says:

    I wish that Portal demo had been up before I bought the damn Orange Box and found out it wouldn’t run on my machine. Damn you, Valve.

    Also, Smash Bros. is back up to $50.

  7. A New Challenger says:

    Yep, my Brawl order was canceled as well. What’s funny/annoying is there was what I can only assume is an automatic e-mail informing me that “my request” to cancel the order had been received.

    @ A New Challenger:

    Smash Bros. came up for me at $19.82 ($23.38 after shipping and taxes). Like was mentioned before, it’s probably a fudge up, but worth a shot!

  9. Brian Copeland says:

    Brawl still selling strong at 11am est. I’m thinking it is a loss leader to get more Walmart Online accounts set up. I’ve certainly never shopped on there before.

  10. akbar56 says:

    That page also lists a Katamari game for the Wii. I thought Konami wasn’t doing one. Anyone have more info on that?

  11. PhiCancri says:

    @ Akbar56

    It’s still listed at TBA.
