Every time I find a source of cheap games, it goes out of business. There's a gamespot in Gaithersburg, MD that's all right.

You probably have some experience with the CD/Game Exchange in Rockville. I used to be in the area and would visit there once a month. Simon, the British part-owner, was often there.

It's kind of like a thrift store in that you have to visit regularly to find and snatch up the good deals. They do have some vintage stuff in addition to newer stuff, and I'd had luck getting decent trade-in credit there on occasion.

I've actually been in there, and I wouldn't say that there are deals but there occassionally is a dump of "new items". We all know where or how these things get there....but it's not really a cool shop to go into. They have quite a bit of games, but the whole feel is more of a CD music shop.

I want to find a cool video game shop like the West Coast has...a place to talk video games and gaming.

If you find one, let me know. There seems to be a lack of "mom & pop" type videogame stores in the DC area. Even the pawn shops in my area have all but stopped carrying older video games.:cry:

I have never seen a Mom and Pop Shop in the DC area for gaming. Problem with it is that land value is so freaking high in the DC area.

I know that we tried, we being CAG, tried to have a regional meetup in the years past...but maybe we can get a good group together. Let's have a roll call again, if you would be interested. We could meetup to secure regional trades for one another and/or trade with one another, etc, etc.

I live in Gaithersburg, MD.

Actually, live in Montgomery Village, but the same difference. Anyhow, I think that we've had this same conversation before while we were chasing BB deals at the BB and EB on Shady Grove Road.

Just went to the CompUSA in Columbia, MD and they had a ton of games on clearance. Prices ranged from $2.99 to $37.00. Old sports games were the cheapest (NHL 2002, ESPN Fb 2002, etc.) and Halo 2 CE was $37. It was mostly PS2 and Xbox.

Weak is right. The Ballston KB had nothing good when I checked Thursday.


i picked up ssx3 at that KB for a buck. they had the spiderman2 game for ds or gba one for 5 bucks but i already played the ps2 version.

the ballston eb games store leaves a little to be desired as well. at least the pentagon city store re-opened.

I dropped by just for kicks, but most of what they had were true moldy oldies for $12-$18 each. Most anything you might want (if you didn't already have it) can still probably be found cheaper at BB after GGC. :cry:

I live in NoVA but I was at the TRU in Clinton (the one near the Giant and Sears Essentials) and saw a BOAT LOAD of Ace Combat 5s for PS2 (for $10). So if anyone wanted one and never found it around the Maryland area, they had at least 20 copies there yesterday. Nothing else was too good, though. I had been there a month ago and they had 10 or so copies of FF Tactics GBA, I was hoping to snag one of those but they were all gone.

I just moved away from MD but rt before i left i found a locally owned shop it was on richey highway I believe it was Past marley station mall it was on the right in a smaller shopping area and I believe there was a traget in there and a cold stone as well, you had to go into the building as it was kind of like a mini mall. I bought my import purple gba micro there along w/ that new system that plays old nintendo games (came w/ 2 controlers for 30 or 40 bucks and looks nifty).
currently playing fallout 3, everquest II (permafrost, Brin, Acashay, ), ACCF, Crono Trigger. Xbox live tag: Aurelia

I can confirm Ace Combat 5 is 10 bucks at the TRU in fairlakes, VA.. They had a boat load of Final Fantasy CC for that price too for the cube. AC5 is an amazing game! good catch i found.

I'm in Laurel. Best deal in '05 for me was XB Spiderman 2 for $5 at a green tag TRU sale. The Gamespot in Laurel is pretty good too. Best Buy is across the street, but advertised deals are all to be had there IMO. I've never seen a good game under $10 at Target here but I look.

I'm mostly a lurker on CAG, looking out for deals. But I'll post 'em if I find 'em.

I used to work in Laurel and the BB has $5 games every now and again. I have picked up THUG 2 GC for $5 there. You have to ask the employees to price check. Also, the Target on 198 has some good clearance deals. If I find any deals, I will post,
