Just wondering,

Talk about the Donkey Kong Country 2 port for GBA.

Just wondering,

At my local retro game store, there's a copy of DKC2GBA for $40. I'm just wondering, if it's worth buying, as I already have the SNES version. I want you guy's opinions. Should I buy it, or not.

4O DOLLARS?! It's not worth THAT much!

That's ridiculous. I doubt the game cost that much back when it was in retail. And over time a Game Boy Advance cartridge would go down in value. You'd be better off buying it online.
It's a great game (I kinda like it better than the Super Nintendo version) but if you're buying a GBA game for 40 bucks you're getting swindled.

It could have been less, but I might have forgot.

Just in case, It shouldn't be worth more than about 10 dollars. Maybe 15 at the most.

OK, that settles it.
But I'm NEVER gonna order a game from the internet again. My copy of DKL3 is STILL lost in the mail. :cry:
Luckily, the aforementioned game store has a copy for the same price as the one I ordered, so I got them to hold it until I pick it up.

I remember when I ordered Mario Party 9 off Target. I got it alright: like TWO WEEKS LATER. And the stupid thing was I live not even a half-hour from the nearest Target.

In my opinion, DKC2 GBA is awesome! There is a scrapbook added, extra modes, etc. I believe you should get it. You'd make a good choice.

I'll get it when I have enough, and if it gets bought before I get it, well, I won't get it. There. Problem solved!

it's because they don't give you stuff from the nearest store, they give it to you from the source they get it from.
