    Letstalk.com doesn't let me preorder Spirits, Ikusa Islands, and X-Men Legends II.

    Well, I have 35 (36 as I have King Of Fighters pending) out of 42 games released to date (Including Snakes in there), so that makes it roughly 85% complete. After I have the remaining few games, I can then concentrate on just buying each new game as it gets released.


    Need:

    Call Of Duty
    Marcel Desailly Pro Soccer
    NCAA Football 2004
    Pocket Kingdom: Own The World
    The King Of Fighters Extreme {Pending}
    The Roots: Gates Of Chaos
    WWE Aftershock
    Xmen Legends


    If anyone has any sealed UK versions of the above, I will gladly take them off your hands for a reasonable price!

    I guess we just have to wait and see for a US release. I called letstalk.com and it seems to be pushed back even farther into October to the 17th. Nokia is supposed to make some big anouncement on October 13th so maybe they're trying to get themselves back in US stores for the release of these upcoming games.

    I hope we get US releases for these upcoming games since they looked to be some of the best N-Gage games yet.

    Got a great deal this week! Pocket Kingdom and Call Of Duty, sealed, BIN for 9.99 and 8.99 respectfully. I snapped them up, and then a few hours later I noticed the seller had increased all his (What were once cheap) N-Gage games from under a tenner each to three times what they once were. Someone must have tipped him off, or he must've actually checked to see what the going prices were.

    Either way, I am very happy to have snapped them up at the price I did when I did!


    Two more down, five more to go... (Marcel Desailly Pro Soccer; NCAA Football 2004; The Roots: Gates Of Chaos; WWE Aftershock; Xmen Legends)

    So I got an email from n-gage.com telling me that catan is finally out. So I go to the online US retailer (letstalk.com) and behold it is still back ordered.

    On a lighter note I only need one game to finish my collection:
    Puzzle Bobble

    theyll get it on the 21st, apparently.

    per letstalk.com
    'we are not associated with Nokia, so get the games sometime after theyre released.'

    so letstalk.com runs the official N-Gage store on the N-Gage website but they are not associated with Nokia x_x

    I'm starting to feel like we might not get anymore US releases since Catan and System Rush have been out for sometime now overseas. Nokia has always released their games at the same time everywhere (except Sega Rally).

    This would really suck if we didn't get anymore US releases since some of the best games are yet to come.

    at least the game has actually been released this time. i guess...
    they had the game listed as relased before and its been psuhed back, so who knows.

    i have to preorder three more games to get the 15% discount and get system rush on my list. i somehow forgot to add it last time i ordered, though catan should be coming soon if its released...

    My prediction is that Rifts will be the best N-Gage game yet. It will be popular enough to see a port to the GBA.

    I am one of the few soldiers that also collects for qd. I just started collecting 2 weeks ago, and I am up to 15 games. This next paycheck, I plan on getting at least 5 more, and I have a trade going on for 3 more. I will have a complete collection.

    Which games are harder to find so I know what to keep an eye out for?

    well I think you can still get all of the games from letstalk.com for around $15 plus another 15% off if you buy 3 or more with free shipping.

    As far as in the wild I don't see many: Puzzle Bobbles or Xanadu Next. Finding N-Gage games at any store is getting harder to find.

    Here's the weird thing... LetsTalk has been sending me daily updates to tell me the games I have on order are backordered, and occasionally the dates slip even further. But for the last couple days the estimated dates have been "00-00-0000". Uh... Is that a system problem, or a bad indication? :/

    Default At least you get updates...

    I have had several new games on order from Lets Talk for a few weeks now and never received a confirmation or updates. I also don't believe you can get a status report from their site. I know the order went in because I received a few of the older games I ordered from them recently which were part of the order.

    I know I can order from the UK, but I would rather own the real deal US versions with the ESRB ratings as opposed to the European rating logo on the case.

    As far as rare games, Lets Talk does not stock Virtua Tennis, but this is readily available from Gamestop. Sega Rally is Australia only and can still be purchased from a few on-line retailers down under. Only seen it once on Ebay though.

    OK I'm starting to get the hint now. I don't think there will be any more US releases. Catan and System Rush have been released overseas for awhile and now Atari Masterpeice vol 1, One, and Heigh Seize have all been released at least in the UK and maybe other place overseas.

    At this point I have a complete US collection but I'd hate to see it end here with so many great games on the horizon.

    I don't believe it is over yet. Most of the upcoming games have been submitted to ESRB which is a good sign. But if they do get released they will be in very limited numbers, maybe even under a thousand.

    games are still 24.99 at letstalk.

    I am going to be stocking up on some games tomorrow (that is when I get paid).

    And if they are done, or at least slowing down to the point of near completion, of making n-gage games, I am going to stock up as muchas possible before eBay sellers start selling games for 50 a pop

    (this place i found here in omaha is selling new n-gage games for 5 to 7.50 a piece with the most expensive games being 12.50)

    So Far, I have noticed that splinter cell: team stealth action has been a game that is a little harder to find than the others

    Default Uhhhh...$50 a pop?

    I think like the Game.com, N-gage games are going to have a resale value below their current retail value. There may be a few exceptions to this, but probably only the stuff that comes out over the next few months which will be in relatively limited release.
