Both Oracle games for $10? **** Yeah.

Am I the only one who still thinks $5 a piece for games this old isn't a steal at all? I'll probably get them, yes, but reluctantly. I still hate the VC pricing though... Maybe if they were spurting these out at a better rate and giving us better games I wouldn't mind as much.

Buying both on release for the discount. 16% each off isn't bad :). looking forward to playing these for the first time!. they'll sit perfectly on my home menu right next to LADX ;).

They are both masterpiece level games, out of print, near impossible to find. and even sites are selling for the original just cartridge at a minimum of 6.99. Those ones aren't even certain to still work either.

5.99 for two copies that aren't going to die or you have to play on a screen without a decent backlight is more than fair, 4.99 is a flat out steal.

Not really. I just paid $10 for Seasons on ebay (yes, I bought it weeks before they announced it was coming to VC).

For want of the price of tea and a slice, the old man died.

$4.99 is what I thought they would be anyway. Can't wait for the 30th.

What I'm curious about is if there will be save states like they added for the LA release, because that would make farming for rings from Gasha seeds SOOO much easier.
