This game has been on my radar a decent amount of time, but the cost has been too prohibitive to make the leap. Yes, the reviews have been very good, the map gorgeous, the gameplay great, and many of the ratings comments from people I personally know and/or respect highly seemed to agree with the reviews. However, $80+ wasn't an uncommon price to find this at when it first came out, and that, I was told by my better half, was out of the realm of possibility right now.

But I was in my FLGS at lunch today and I noticed they had a copy on the shelf. I picked it up with longing, turning it slowly in my hands, that keen desire to own it kicking in but the sensible side of me holding back since it knew it was going to be ...

$44.95!!!??

Yes, I had my glassses on, it didn't say $84.95 ... the price tag read $44.95.

Sold. Home tonight to take off the shrink wrap and fondle the game.

Well, it really equates to about US$ 34.
(Not sure how much that is in real value, like loaves of bread)!
