Yeah, and you were pretty close to Portland too. I live in the L/A area, so it is a roughly 40 minute drive to anyplace remotely interesting.

I still live in Skowhegan, and unfortunately jlarlee is a little too old for me to have known.

Why do I have to drive for two hours to reach your town, Greetard? Why do you horde Big Lots and the other good stores?

Really? I know Jordan Burdet, who is semi-famous for juvenile delinquency. He graduated with me, though. I never hung out with him because the truck-driving, beer-drinking, Carrhart-wearing redneck scheme isn't my clique. :lol:

Looked in the yearbook, and the only ones are Jordan Burdet and Jordan Smith, both of whom graduated in 2005.

Have any of you guys ever encountered the incompetence that is a result of living in Maine? About an hour ago, I was in Bull Moose music trying to find some cool games. They had a special: Buy one specially marked 25% off and get up to five for 50% off each.

I wouldn't have a problem with that if it wasn't for the insanely high prices that they charge. Really guys, get with the program.

NHL '95 - $9! It's a SNES game!
WCW '98 - $13! It sucks, and it's a N64 game!
Breath of Fire Dragon Quarter - $50!
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets GBA - $22!

What's worse is that these were all CART-ONLY.

Hey, that's the Gamestop I hit! Are you guys doing the Trick or Treet Nintendogs promotion this weekend?

BTW, does anyone have any tips for places to get NES games cheap? I live in L/A, work in Portland (and hit Augusta on occassion as well).

Hey guys, I live in South Portland right now and I'm finishing up my last year at USM. I was at the Mall this week and hit BB and KB. Then I went to TRU to get some more games off of their B2G1F sale. All in all it's been a good week for me, but I think I may go back to Bull Moose Music (the one by the Maine Mall) and see if they have anything that isn't too expensive.

P.S. I've met Jake (StealthySeal) before in the EB in the mall, but he's the only CAG I've ever met. You guys should put yourselves on the new CAG map.

Hey, since you're going to USM, look for a short deep-tanned asian kid named Derik Lee. He's a friend of mine. Make sure you punch him.

It pains me to say this (because I don't really want to give myself competition for the good stuff) but there's a flea market in Lisbon Falls when the weather's good (ie not now, but again in the spring) that can have video game deals. I got Rise of the Kasai there for $3 when it was brand new. Additionally, there's a large flea market down on Route 1 in Old Orchard Beach during the spring and summer that has cheap retro stuff. My NES cart collection is upward of 160 at this point, but I bought most of them at flea markets in northern Virginia. I guess what I'm trying to say is, hit up flea markets. There are some morons who try to squeeze out $5 for crap, but their good stuff is often at the same price.

Thanks, I had been hitting a store in Augusta and a flea in Westbrook, but the flea in Westbrook really has clueless prices, most of which were too high in my mind. I've been to teh one in Lisbon Falls, too - it is a good one, I've found a couple of goodies there. Thanks for the input, I rarely go down to OOB, but maybe it would be a good trip next spring. My collection's only about 70ish, but my goal is a list of about 150 "must have" games.

Where do you go in Augusta, and do they sell TG-16/Saturn? There's a store in Lewiston I've been meaning to check out, but it's in a pain-in-the-ass location near Luiggi's so I figured it wasn't work the trouble.

The one in Augusta is Video Game Exchange on Water St. I don't think I've ever seen TG16/Saturn games there, but you could probably call them. I've seen oddball things like Jaguars there before, so it may be a case of they carry whatever people sell them.

Which store in Lewiston? I'm hitting downtown soon - there's at least 1 pawn shop I want to check, I could let you know. I think there's a variety/video shop down there called Dee's that looks like it may have old stuff too - but I've never ventured around there.

I've given up on the Lewiston pawn shops; the multi-floor one, for example, asks for more than EB/Gamestop does for everything which is pretty ridiculous. The store in Lewiston advertises itself as a CD/DVD/Video Game sales place. I'm not sure how to describe the location - it's NEAR the intersection of Main Street and Sabattus Street in Lewiston, kitty-corner to Luiggi's, in between Central Maine Medical Center and St. Mary's Hospital.

Edit: Looking at Google Maps, I'm going to say it IS on the corner of College and Sabattus/126. I think.
