Almost had a disaster today. Met up with ZharTheMad to swap that copy of Riddick I picked up only to discover that someone had stolen the disk out of it. I had picked that copy up at the Camp Creek Target. They did a pretty good job of putting the package back together. I've learned my lesson and will pay very close attention to everything from now on. Just thought I'd let everyone know.

I stopped at the Target in Stone Mtn. If anyone had their eye on the one copy of Riddick they had, I picked it up. At some point between yesterday and today, put out some more stuff though. Saw one Socom for PS3 with the headset for about $40. They had several copies of another PS3 game with the headset... it had the word "hawk" in the name. It was at about $30 I think it was. They have tons of copies of the "special Target edition" of Shawn White Snowboarding for PS3. They also had one or two of a couple of other random games.

Yeah, I've had that happen twice now with clearance games on endcaps. Several years ago I got The Punisher for xbox at the North Druid Hills Target on my dinner break. I was so excited to have finally gotten it and couldn't wait until my shift was over to go home and play it. Got home and opened it and boom, no disc. The CR was very leery of me and kept arguing that I had to exchange it for the same game while I kept insisting that I just wanted the same game and not a refund or different one. Two years ago I got C&C 3 at the Stone Mountain Target and then didn't open it for about a year only to find no disc. I figured I was out of luck on that one and didn't bother going back to Target. Some miscreants do what is referred to as the razor trick where they cut a smooth slit in the plastic wrap and push the back of the case to pop the disc out and slide it out. It's pretty hard to notice on a casual glance since the razor does such a smooth cut when done right. After the first time I tried to remember to check out any game I buy, but now I always inspect the plastic wrap and stickers and also shake or flip the case to make sure I can hear a disc rattle inside. I've seen several empty cases around mostly at Stone Mountain Target.

The game in question would be Warhawk.

I frequent that Target often so I will make sure to pay more attention to the packaging. Thanks for the heads up.

I have seen it at Edgewood, Sydney Marcus, and more recently at N.Druid Hills (two copies of Silent Hill Homecoming 360 a few months back).

De Blob is 9.98 @ the Target on Dallas Hwy in Marietta (8-10 copies left 50% off), and picked up Motorstorm Pacific Rift @ the Johnson Ferry one for 14.98 (1 left). Plenty of other games but nothing else that stood out at its lowest price point yet. Also got Iron Man @ the Johnson Ferry Sears for 4.97 (marked in case as 14.97). They had a good selection of games on clearance but nothing else I wanted or bothered to check. Also picked up a couple of SanDisk 1 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo sticks for 3.97 each there, good for your PSP, which I don't have but probably will down the road.

Only thing the Edgewood Target had of interest was a Patapon 2 download code for 14 bucks.

There's a few Bionic Commandos and Riddick's that should crack 20 if people are looking for them as well.

I noticed in the main Deals section someone posted that Fry's has PS3 Sixaxis controllers (not Dualshock) for $4.85 + tax available only for in store pick-up. I looked it up, and it is available at the Duluth store for anyone interested. I'd love to pick one up, cause my old Sixaxis has a tendency to stick sometimes, but Duluth is a bit too far for me to roam. Anyhow, hope this helps someone.

I'm sure someone will want this, and it might as well go to use by an Atl CAG'er. I have an Amazon Wii Sports Resort $10 off code that I've decided not to use. I got it in the mail and have been trying to decide whether or not to use it. Long story short, I've decided not to use it.

Made my first trip to a Brandsmart - the new one near Mall of GA. Guess there might have been some deals to be had (on crock pots, toasters, etc.) but reminded me too much of a Mexican Flea Market. Only use out of it will be to price match games at Sears :D

It is nice to have a BrandsMart on this side of town, put the parking is like a quarter of what the Doraville location had. Parking is a nightmare for the grand opening weekend.

There is no doubt that Vizio TVs give you the most for your money, and the quality is good too. There isn't anything wrong with them. Personally I like Samsung TVs, which seem to have better prices than they once did since Vizio has been around.

I find it hilarious that talk of Brandsmart has intermingled with my question about TVs. The reason? Our dying TV was purchased at Brandsmart. That was the first and only time have and will ever set foot near a Brandsmart. Its crowded and very bright and tacky and the service is a complete joke. My advise is to stay far far away and just pretend they don't exist.

There is an article in today's paper about BrandsMart, indicating that the bright colors are there to "keep you moving". I noticed when I was there they were emphasizing their service department, with their speedy and efficient service, that I find hard to believe.

There is no doubt that BrandsMart has the largest individual selection of TVs I have ever seen. So for that reason alone, it is worth checking out sometimes. The best thing about BrandsMart is that Best Buy & Fry's will price match their sometimes insane prices.

I don't have a Wii and have no need for it, but I just wanted to say "Thank You" anyway for the offer. That's what I like about this, specific thread: we all help each other out and go out of our way for our fellow CAGs. It's really nice to see in this day of e-bullies and e-jerks.

Best Buy @ Pleasant Hill/I85 now has 75% off on the clearance cart. Unfortunately, not much interesting was left. Most games would be 7.50, 10 or 15. Off the top of my head, Rock Band PS3 7.50, Singstar Vol 2 Bundle 15, 360 MLB Manager 10 and 360 Hell's Highway 10, Golden Compass 360 7.50, Rock Revo 360/PS3 5. Wonder if Resident Evil and Resistance 2 LEs were still on the cart when it went to 75% off. Those woulda been sweet deals too good to pass up.

North Point Target has a ton of GH:World Tour guitar bundles (360/PS3) for $22.70 or something. This includes 1 copy of World Tour and either 1 new style guitar with the touch pad or 2 GH3 Les Pauls. Considering the Les Paul is my favorite GH/RB guitar out there, getting 2 for $22 was well worth it and I'll keep World Tour around in case I get GH5 and want to import the songs. Still plenty available, although PS3 only has the 1 new style guitar package.

EDIT - Amazon is giving $10 for World Tour trade-in so you could effectively get 2 Les Pauls for $12. Can't beat that.

Damn. Gonna have to wait for that price to hit around here. Its like a quarter of a tank of gas for me to drive up there and back. But I agree that the Les Paul is the best guitar.

I have good news for Ubiiquitous... I picked up a copy of NHL 09 for you. Gonna send you a PM.

I went to Target at Stonecrest. They have two more copies of NHL for $15. I think the only other thing that was below $20 was a copy of Velvet Assassin for PC.


Target in Conyers has one left after I visited there today. Nothing else 360 unfortunately.

Damn, all the stores here as in downtown and northeast of the city have tons of the PS3 bundle and none or one 360 version. I've only found one store that has two and all stores are still at 30% off so I doubt I'll be able to get one at 75% off which is my price range.

I'll DP to bump this up, Sidney Marcus Target has about 23 Rock Band 2s for 360 @ 12.48 (75% off). Wish I woulda held off during the Blockbuster sale. That's a solid deal. The only 360 GH:WT set looks like it's been opened and is still 30% off.
