Haha... I've only been in Cleveland for 6 years, so I don't even like the Browns (go Lions!), but I'll still say that Roethlisberger sucks. One of my roommates was from Erie, so I generated plenty of hate for Pittsburgh as a result.


Cleveland used to be a pretty fun town, but these days I've gotta say Pittsburgh is cooler... The Warhol museum and the fact that George Romero still haunts Pittsburgh and sets all his zombie movies there pushes it over the top. Plus you don't always feel like you're about to get ganked when you're walking in Pittsburgh.

Anyway, I grew up in Youngstown but left years ago... that place is a pit.

It's been fun to read this thread and hear all the town names I remember from growing up, though! :)

Akron here

anyone know any good places to shop in the area? Only places I know are the record exchanges in montrose and canton.


At the Chapel Hill area, in the plaza next to Best Buy/Target (The one with Staples in it) there's an Exchange. That's the only non chain store I can recall off the top of my head that I've frequented that still sells video games. Unfortunately, Game Trader in Cuyahoga Falls was bought by a new owner again, and the first thing he did was sold off all the video game stuff, making the store focused on card games and D&D. some of the collection still may be at The Exchange, but I doubt there's anything good left.

Haha, no shit? Here I thought that improbably there were no other Case CAGs. Luckily I only pretend to work on my thesis so I don't have to go on campus anymore.


Yep, first year here for me, so I'm forced to stay on campus. thankfully classes aren't bad yet, so I've been avoiding the main quad for most of the day and just hanging out in my room :D

Sweet so many people here are from OHIO. Yeah I live in dublin (suburb off of OHIO) and go to VGMX in powell frequently. I have been to a trading zone (in a carriage place shopping thing?) but they normally don't have much stuff I like...

Seems like everyone lives around cleveland, columbus, or cincinnati.
I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.

Another Toledo CAG here. So who all frequents Allied Records? They overprice the RPGs these days, but I've gotten some killer deals there over the years. A few months back I found a complete Raiden Project for $2.50.

I usually check out the Allied in Miracle Mile, but noticed they've been very lacking so I haven't really checked in a while.

It's not as big as the other Allied I was at (near the DMV), but I found some nice things there (Xenogears $10, FFT $10, DW7 $8, etc), so it's worth the usual glance to see what they have.

I should stop there again some time. The Allied comments here have brought back some memories of good deals... like Puzzle Fighter for Playstation for something like $15. Parappa for $5. I just don't like the atmosphere, but I suppose it's no worse than an EB or Gamestop.


Except Gamestop or EB dosen't play god awful music that makes you want to stab out your eyeballs with an icepick. ;) I also agree Boogie Records is missed. It used to be the best record store in Toledo. Now you have to deal with the huge corporate stores, and the numbskulls at Allied.

I got suikoden I, star ocean(ps1) both complete for like $10 each. I remember when some guy told me he got snatcher(complete) + the justifier light gun for under $5! :drool: that's the type of deal that I need to find!


I've gotten so many nice deals there over the years. Especially back when they had no idea what stuff was worth. I remember one trip walking out of there with a top-load NES, and a bunch of Sega CD RPGs (Lunar, Vay, Popful Mail) for a song. Unfortunately they are better informed these days, but you can still find the occasional deal that slips through. This was especially cool when they had all their LPs for $1 each a few years ago. I sure miss those days.

Yeah, some the music is crazy. I wish that they didn't have to play it so freakin loud. And the deal are getting way hard to find also, but I still go in hopes of finding something...

Here in Solon, south of Cleveland but still considered the east side. Oficially the lamest suburb of Cleveland.



So that's where Solon is. I am the new coach of our Science Olympiad team and have an invitational there like in 6 months. I had no idea how far that was since I am coming from the Dayton/Tipp City area.

What is that like 4 hours?
