Blockbuster B1G1 under 14.99 started today. BB @ Riverside was cleaned out of all the $6.99 360 prev owned games so those looking for those at that location are out of luck. The guy working told me that a guy came in over the weekend and bought them all.

Weird, today they had most of the same POGS as last week. They still had alot of sports games, nba phenom, bulletwitch, cod3 and maybe dark sector or something. I picked up Tomb Raider Underworld and Bionic Commando and then I saw they were putting out rentals converted to sales which allowed me to pick up No More Heroes and Beautiful katamari. The store off Hamilton Mill doesn't have much and they have a ton of POGs from November most of which were GH3 and Aerosmith and Fromtlines. I figured the store right off 85 in Suwanee might still be a good place to check and found out they had closed. The store south of snellville only had a ton of old POGs as well and they had a ton of no artwork games at regular prices. They used to be good about having complete games there. The grayson store didn't have much and neither does the snellville store off five forks. A few stores had the POGs bins with regular games in them.

WABA Games in Duluth usually is willing to do deals. Like ask about 2 games say maybe one is enough and he'll drop $10. Owner's name is Men, he's really cool. Their new selection is lacking though. Lotta older system accessories and games.

Not sure what's up at the Riverside. I had stopped by early Tuesday to see what was left and didn't see any POGs that I saw last week. Asked the bearded guy and he told me someone cleared them out over the weekend.

I actually stopped by the Hamilton Mill store yesterday myself :D Saw the same as far as the POGs and was disappointed. Only thing I picked up there was FEAR and FEAR 2 for $10. The L'ville-Suwanee location closed down a couple of months ago - sucks because it was the closest one to my house. I didn't know the Sugarloaf location near 316 had closed down until I stopped by there on Tuesday.

Checked the Blockbuster on S.Cobb in Smyrna today. I think I was told it's a regional HQ store or something. Strange location for one but it might be true as they still had a variety of B1G1 games. There's an end cap a bit back with PS2 titles in the sale, I didn't look through it but I do recall a Castlevania title in the front. Right up near the front they have a mixed bin with a sign containing B1G1 games from the 3 current gen sytems. Most of the titles I looked at had instruction manuals and all had cover art except two 360 titles. When I left just before 8pm there was still a decent variety for all 3 systems. Prices ranged from $6.99 to $14.99.

Here's what I remember:

Wii: Smarter than a 5th grader, Dora Explorer Diego Somethingorother, Drawn to Life, Metal Slug Anthology (w/ instructions), The Bigs, The Bigs 2, and 1-2 others

PS3: GTA4, Red Faction, NHL 2K9, Turning Point:Fall of Liberty, and at least 6-10 other titles

360: Fracture, Velvet Assassin, Overlord II (2 copies), Far Cry 2 (1 copy w/ box art and instructions the other w/ neither), Too Human, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. (2-3 copies at least 1 w/ instructions), Madden NFL 2008,9,or 10 (I don't recall), and around 7-9 other titles
-Trying to think of something creative.-

I agree. That Riverside location was picked clean (as it always seems to be lately. Employee or Lurker). I stopped by a couple near the airport on my way home this weekend and grabbed about 6 games (for Goozex flipping purposes). Didn't realize some of those $14.99 and $9.99 titles fetch anywhere from 500 to 600 Goozex points!! Didn't see any newer POGs. Got a backlog from hell, so I need to take it easy for a while and actually play some of these. I've got a 3 night hotel room for Dragoncon to pay for by June!
Besides Star Trek, when it comes to movies, they're is no such thing as a "re-imagining." Run. It's only going to be a crappy remake.

Blockbuster off of holcomb bridge and old alabama (ish) is closing down. I went in there to check on B1G! titles when I heard the manager in the backroom over the phone talking about transferring titles to different stores. It was kind of sad too because the woman who rang my transactions got all emotional when I asked her about the store closing. I really didn't know what to say. Pretty awkward actually.

Ahhh, I wondered how much biz that store did these days. Drove by it two weeks ago, and considered going in, but then... I didn't. The store at Hwy9/Crossville had some decent titles last week. I bought a couple. Or four.

Alright here is a list of the mentionables for the Blockbuster $14.99 sale at the Lakeland Plaza location, it's inside the Kroger shopping center at 20 and 400. I didn't right down prices cuz I was on my lunch break, and they seem to be universal across the company so it's probably listed on this or the big Blockbuster thread. A lot of the games were no case but behind the counter they still had a lot of manuals. I did have trouble were I bought a 2 pair of $7 games and a pair of $10 games and a pair of $15 games and the auto coupon codes only gave me the 3 $7 and 1 $15 free but the manager fixed it. But just buy the games in pairs on seperate transactions. I got Fear Files for $7, Frontlines for $7, Stranglehold for $7, Fear 2 for $10, two copies of Beatles RB for $15 ( one left I snagged 2 cuz I thought they would be hard to find, but I don't want the second copy anyone want it for $8 local trade only this cheap ain't worth shipping, just message me) Gear of war for $10 and Condemned 2 for $7

Alright here is a list of the mentionables for the Blockbuster $14.99 sale on Thompson Bridge Rd, just down the street from the Honey Baked Ham. I didn't right down prices cuz I I'm lazy and I was tired it was 9pm, and they seem to be universal across the company so it's probably listed on this or the big Blockbuster thread. Almost all the games had cases and manuals. I did have trouble were I bought a 2 pair of $7 games and a pair of $10 games and a pair of $15 games and the auto coupon codes only gave me the 3 $7 and 1 $15 free but the manager fixed it. But just buy the games in pairs on seperate transactions. Best on the listing is they had 360 Street Fighter 4 for $15 and the other store had it for $20. And they have 7 copies of 360 Beatles RB. I grabbed a Street Fighter and the last copy of 50 cent. Both were $15. Spoilers are to make the post smaller.

How did you get Batman AA for 10?

I can save you a trip. There's some budget games on clearance, mostly PS2 stuff sitting at 30% off. It'll disappear by the time it hits 50%. I used to get some deals there, but recently it's always devoid.

N. Druid Hills Target had two copies of "Brutal Legend" for 15 bucks yesterday. They were the only Xbox clearance games in sight. I resisted the impulse buy because I'd already bitten on a 10-dollar "Prototype" via the Gamefly sale earlier that day. So many games, so little time to actually play them.

Pretty sure it was supposed to be 29.99.

If you don't mind used games you should get BL used at Blockbuster. It's 9.99 and there's a B1G1F going on so it would be $5. I tried out the beginning and it seemed pretty cool despite starring Jack Black.

I use to stop by that location when I lived nearby. A lot of the people have been working there for a while. Then there's the young ones there, who once they start researching for UE, realize they'll be getting about $100 a week. I hate it for them (and hope they can find something else quickly). Due to the economy, only certain amount of spots are held for transfers (1 store to another).

I've been to a couple of these locations that have been closing, and they are basically getting floored by these announcements (mainly because Corporate is reassuring the managers their store won't close (who in turn tells his employees), then a month later, the bad news comes.

Had that happen with a Tomb Raider Underworld. It was an Underworld box with a 9.99 price tag, but it was a TR Anniversary disc inside and it scanned and rang up as TR:A for 6.99. Just realized that maybe they did the scan a disc sleeve thing instead of the barcode on the box which would explain how it scanned that way. Was going to try and get a return for the proper disc, but with it ringing up for a cheaper game and the B1G1 going on it may be too big of a hassle. Besides I think I don't have TR:A and would like it so I'll see if they'll switch out the box and manual. Got TR:U at a different BB.

You're going to return that to the store and offer to pay the difference, right?? ;)

Sure, after he goes back and gets the other one. Reminds me that I should play the one I got at Sam's sometime.
