    Default What the heck is Fox Hunt?

    My friend said some guy traded it in at his Gamestop and the manager who was doing the transaction bought it right on the spot. I have never heard of it. I looked on the guide and found it to be a R8. Was this out for a very short time?

    I thought that review was pretty funny.

    I thought Gamestop employees weren't allowed to buy games before they are put out for sale? No wonder why they're never any rare PS1 games for sale whenever I go there.

    Oh yeah, I own Fox Hunt. It's definitely one of the better FMV games I've played. Good acting and a funny script. It's pretty hard to find, but if you are into FMV's, you should really try to track down a copy.

    Well.. i just got off the phone with him. He said the manager put the sticker on it and bought it for however much GS offers, then he put it aside until he was off then bought it.

    I think it's because FMV games were already a dead genre by the time it was released for Playstation, so I doubt they pressed allot of copies. That combined with poor sales is most likely the reason for it's high rarity.

    What about the CD soundtrack? I bought that a loooong time ago for cheap at a used CD shop. I remember the following were on it:

    Sugar Hill Gang - "Rapper's Delite"
    Greg Kihn Band - "Jeopardy"
    Average White Band - "Pick up the Pieces"

    Also some Sublime and other stuff. Any rarity to that ;D.

    Fox Hunt had a CD soundtrack? That's worth a PM to Dangerboy if you still have it.

    Well like you said earlier, the game is listed as an R8 in the guide. So yeah, it's pretty rare.

    I'm sure it's a general music soundtrack, not a pack-in or preorder or anything. It was also released on the PC as well.

    What is Fox Hunt?

    Read and discover.

    That must be why it's so rare -- The Gord destroyed every copy of it that he could get his hands on.

    Oh.. he also told me with the trade the guy traded Kartia, Hoshigami, and Valk Profile, which the employee bought as soon as he left. This dude is pissing me off, my friend said he got the ToD2 guide as well as many Suikoden II's this way.

    What sort of clown turns in Valkyrie Profile at Gamestop? Wouldn't he/she at least check Ebay first? :/

    A lot of people seem to like this game, but I always thought it was extremely cheesy and had HORRIBLE acting...though there were some funny scenes.

    Sadly, I only have 2 or three of the 4 disks (or is it 2 of 3 disks?...I don't remember), and no case for them or book...sometimes my finds are just sad.

    I saw a complete copy once...didn't buy it though. I got GB Megaman V at the same store so I was very happy anyway!

    Well, SOMEONE traded in Valkrie Profile into my local EB last year -- how else would I have found a used complete copy of the game there?
