^Thanks for the heads up Clown, I was unaware of this. Looks like it has the potential to be a good time.

No prob. I went this year and it was awesome. Though the Sheraton is a huge upgrade from the hotel in Peachtree City from last time.

TREJOOOOO. I would consider going just to meet him, honestly. I'm not much of a horror fan, though, so I dunno how likely my attendance will be.

Anyone else order the $15 KID ICARUS 3DS from Best Buy today? I snagged one mid-day. It had been unavailable earlier, but I guess they released some more for mail order.

Well good thing is it's only 20 bucks for a one day pass. i'm gonna be there all 3 days cause i'm a huge horror fan.

Nope i got Kid Icarus a long time ago when they did b2g1 on 3ds games. I did grab The Witcher 2 for 10 bucks though.

JDawgg77, also like my PSN account. In fact, all my gaming accounts are JDawgg77 across the board. I have Dirt 2, L4D1 & 2 on steam and that's about it that's multiplayer. No mic for my PC set up. I'm just getting back into PC gaming as well.

Thread's really dead lol...

I know right! This thread was the thing that got me on CAG in the first place and now it reads like an empty room. This really is a case where the "good old days" phrase actually fits. At this rate we could host a ATL CAG meet up in a single booth at Waffle House.:lol:


On a gaming note, I'm ready to say goodbye to my PS2 as I've finally finished my backlog on it and no longer need it as an extra DVD player. I would much rather an ATL CAG get it then anyone else or Gamestop. I'm a big fan of local meetups for this kind of thing and have no problem driving to meet somewhere in the metro area. It's a slim model owned only by me (no smoking, no kids) and would include the original box and packaging, owner's manual, av cables and controller. It really could pass for brand new. I'd also throw in complete editions of MGS 2&3, the vertical stand attachment, and a PS2 and PS1 memory card with the system (all also in good shape).

The only other PS2 items I have are an awesome wireless Logitech controller, the steelbook collector's edition of Final Fantasy XII, and the FFXII collector's edition guide and artbook. All were bought new by me and are in excellent conditon (I even laminated the gigantic map/gambit chart 'cause I'm that much of a nerd). I would be more than happy to accept offers on just the system or all of it from a local CAG. I'm also open to trades (current gen/Blu's) in combination with or instead of cash and would be willing to drive to your metro area location. I would really like it to have a good home/owner, PM me with ANY and ALL offers of interest.


I know we really don't like to get the thread all jammed up with this kind of stuff but I figure it really is a ghostown and can't hurt.

I don't post much anymore because I don't really game anymore. I'll go looking for woodworking deals instead of VG or movie deals. I think my kids play my games more than I do.

Partially, the local deals have dried up. Target clearance is dead. Now everything is online or nationwide stuff. In general, not many deals to talk about when it comes to local.

It's true, most stuff is online/nationwide now. With Target clearance being gone, the demise of Circut City, and all of the video rental places riding off into the sunset there really isn't much left in the way of local deals. I think we'll just have to start using the thread as more of an all things Atlanta type thing (which we kind of already do).

I should actually revive my sell thread and get rid of all these older games I never play.

I was thinking of doing that too, I should create one of those sometime.:)

Does anyone know of any small independent game stores in the Atlanta metro area (out in the burbs, etc)? I'm looking for a place that sells arcade sticks - I want to get my hands on a couple before I decide to buy. Fry's and MC carry them from time to time (whenever a big game is released) but that's about it and neither have any at the moment.

Same for me. The target near me only has Harry Potter and NHL games on clearance compared to last year when I got the Black Ops Prestige Edition for 75% off. The Blockbuster and Best buy closed down in town so I usually just order online from Best buy since I don't want to always drive over to the one in Peachtree City.

I don't know of any other stores besides those two that would have them, but I have a brand new TE round 2 for the xbox that I'm trying to sell.

The only independent ones I know of are CCGaming, some flea market stores, a store in Athens, and random PlaynTrades. Prices aren't really great at any though.

This, more or less. Kids rock your world, and video games for better or worse got bucked way down the list. I still play little bits when I can, and it's getting a little easier as they get older, but it's a challenge. To quote a spot-on This American Life segment, "It's not twins. It's two fucking babies at the same time." ;)

I think the death of local deals is definitely part of it too.

Threads back haha. I played alot of video games back in middle school mainly GC, then was on 360 from release to about 2010, got RROD'd 4 times so I just said Fuck it & basically stopped gaming. I got a new laptop with good specs for making music last year, & for college (I'm at Georgia State), and figured why not and dropped some money for some good deals on Steam.

So now I'm basically just PC gaming, downloading everything. Much easier to manage & cheaper than systems for sure. Roommates got a PS3 but honestly its kinda shit besides the blu-ray lol...that's after a year of trying it out too, 360 is just is a better system imo. I'm enjoying RTS's alot too, which is something I'd never thought I'd really play that much.

Deals are definitely getting worse as time progresses...I used to go to Circuit City during Black Friday's and now they don't even have any stores anymore.

Well after this little roll call I revise my statement to 2-3 booths at Waffle House.;)
Good to see that there's still a loyal CAG crew representing Atlanta.

I was mailed a promotional gift card for an Atlantic Station restaurant, Yard House.
Anyone been here yet and have an opinion on the place?

That's the new-ish burger place over near Publix. I haven't tried it yet. The menu didn't excite me too much, and I think I read some fair-to-middling Yelp reviews... so, not too eager to hit it up. Certainly worth eating there for free, though!

It's all good 8-)

I have to watch out for games that ain't Steam-compatible...it kind of bugs me now when I can't add activate on it lol. OCD organized like that

& I actually live at Atlantic Station lmao. That new burger joint Yard Burger is supremely overpriced...imo. Its ok for the money, if it was like $5 for a meal it'd be good.

Thanks for the notice, the Yard House website made me think that their emphasis was on having a bunch of brews available so maybe the food is secondary.
With average expectations it sounds like I won't be let down, lol. Plus, as El Gray implied, free makes anything taste better!:lol:
