How about a thread for those in the Tampa Bay area. Should save looking through massive amounts of threads when you want to pick up a quick game in the Tampa Bay area.

Deals I've found

Polarium 7.48 (10 or so copies left) at the Target at Dale Mabry and 275

Meteos 7.48 (piles, more than 15 left) at the Target at Dale Mabry and Ehrlich/Bearss

Thanks for the heads up. I may have to rebuy Meteos.

The Florida thread is pretty much the Tampa Bay Area thread.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

I guess since there are so many Tampa CAGs, a more specific thread than the Florida one couldn't hurt. I'm all for it! I can recall at least 5 other members in the area.

Would be nice to have a local trading circle to help others out with sales in the area. I've done some trades with Roufuss and he's top notch and knows his way around the city!

Any locals who want to chat, PM me or you can find me on AIM as Gunstar419.

It seems like every CAG from Florida is based in Tampa.

Yes, it seems Tampa is heavily saturated with CAGs which tends to make me more of a sad panda than a happy panda.

Unless I'm some kind of super CAG shopper, I've scored many multiples of every deal ever posted on this site... nothing really to worry about. There are probably 3 times this number in lurkers anyways.

To them I say "Hello!"

He speaks the truth. Despite how many CAGs are in Tampa, I've gotten in on almost every deal from this site, and left plenty behind for others. I've even still gotten great stuff days after a deal breaks! Only exceptions are Best Buy clearance sales which I very very rarely get in on, probably due to employees there taking dibs.

Now when I'm in Los Angeles, I almost never ever find anything anywhere, even the lukewarm deals the very day a deal breaks. Probably even more competition out there.

Be thankful you live in an area where cheap deals abound!

I've had alot of pawn shop competition as of late. Luckily I can still manage to find the occasional deal, but it's getting meaningless to go every week.
I've usually stuck to doing online sales but after EB turned to the darkside I've stopped ordering online.
Though buy 2 get 1 free at EB B&M made me happy. ( I got Tales of Legendia, Shadow of the Colossus and Shadow Hearts 3 for 77).

Target at Fletcher and Bruce B Downs didn't have anything on clearance today, just some 9.99 games. They do have a buy 2 get 1 though.

The Sam Goody in University mall had very few if any games left, some accessories left at 60% off their jacked up prices.

I'm all about a trading circle, I just don't have very many games to trade (or at all) right now.

If we could get some type of spreadsheet together that has everybodys top 5 wants and what they'll pay for it, if we keep it updated, it'd be easy to print out when we go looking.

i like the idea of a trading circle, but in my experience, people always want too much for their games. i want to be able to play something and move on to something else. i always get the attitude "my game sells for $X.XX and yours is not worth as much." i'm not trying to trade MGS2 for Elder Scrolls IV, it's a slightly older game for a slightly newer game. If we can get a circle where people trust eachother and our games can move regularly through the group, than it would be great because we'd beat a game and pass it to the next person.
I'm ranting now, but i hope that it can work.

^^^I understand how most CAG traders want too much for their stuff and not enough for yours. I get seriously lowballed all the time on here and do maybe one trade to every 20 offers.

I was thinking more of local sales where one of us gets to a deal before another and there are leftovers, so we can get it for someone else and just charge cost + tax and maybe a $1.00 or two for trouble. Since we're all local, pick-ups are easier to do. I've done two in-person trades with Roufuss.

in person trades sound good. i never have a problem with driving to meet (except Rofus and his St. Pete living *ss!!!!)
we've talked about doing it several times, but never hooked up.
everyone, keep in touch about these deals and extra stuff you pick up to give us a chance to swap.

lol... I don't just stay in Saint Petersburg forever.

In a good day, I can hit St. Pete, Clearwater, Tampa (though not often, just usually Dale Mabry), Largo, all the stores up and down US 19, as well as Port Richey.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

Saint pete is good for its beaches, concert venues, and pizza (that place next to Jannus Landing is the best).

Though, i dont like Pinellas's "pawn shop" laws. Glad Hillsborough & Pasco dont have em.

Yes.

The Gamestop on Tyrone Blvd and 38th Avenue N (around there) is by far the best Gamestop in the city, and even though I am King CAG, I still throw my business in there. I urge you all to do the same, the staff is some of the best around.

The best EB is on Park Blvd on like, 71st Avenue N... its made up of all the awesome employees that used to work in the mall location.

There's the best GS / EB in the city, no, probably the district.

I'd much rather support GS/EB than say walmart, but all of the gamestops I've been to recently reak of evilness. I'm never going to the one in Carrollwood again, they put a major sales pitch of reserving a game, even with a simple 1 item purchase.

Anyone looking for any of the games from the recent sales: Target, Circuit City, Sears, GameRush, etc? Roufuss and I have scouted most of the Tampa Bay area stores and can point you in the right direction. I have a few extras of some stuff for trade from other CAGs who wanted them and then bailed out.

I don't think a single Best Buy in a 50 mile radius had any of the good clearance games though. Rise of the Kasai and Genji are the only ones to be found.

I agree with the pawn shop competition. I have been pawn shopping in this area for 8 years now and I have never had as much competition as I do now. The pawn shops are literally dry and rarely will you get a good deal, although I have found some cheap Final Fantasy VIIs around.
