I went to the Play N Trade in Elmhurst once, it seemed pretty douchey. I had some guy trying to convince me that $100 for a disc only copy of Marvel VS Capcom 2 :ps2: was an awesome deal, and that he saw the same thing going for over $200 on ebay.. What a dumbass.

Just to let everyone know that the friday edition of Red Eye contains a $10 off any wii game priced $49.99 good from 5/19 - 5/23/2009. It has a front cover of a new best buy opening. This would be good to use it on punch out.

WeaponX, I see that you go to the same game stores as me. No wonder I can never find any good clearance games at Target in Matteson xD

I got R6V2 for 9.98 a while back , and have never seen anything good for PS3 since.

I never knew there was a regional board on this site. It's pretty cool.

Will have to check this one out. This chain doesn't sound terribly promising based on what I've read about it, but it never hurts to look.

Hey, that's not just me. There are others. But welcome.

How is half price books prices on guides, because I have a lot of old guides that no one wants.

Oh.

Well, I took some brand new, shrink wrapped books in to Half Price, and they gave me a little less than $2 for them. Never taking books to them, again (unless I REALLY need to get rid of them).

I have to head over to the Meijer/US Bank on Gary this afternoon (gotta pay the mortgage). It's only about another 0.5 mile to the PNT. If they're open, great. If not, no big deal.

If anyone is looking for those Hori EX sticks, the Toyr R Us at Riverview (Western Av.) had 4 of them as of yesterday afternoon. Think they were $59.99. I wanted one, but I just couldn't pull the trigger for some reason.

Did you happen to notice if they had a clearance bin for games?

I always forget about this store...

They had one bin that I saw of, filled with all the crap Game Boy games that store has been trying to get rid of for months (years?) now. They did have one copy of Avatar (Xbox 360) for $5 but I already have the achievements from it so I passed.

Speaking of stores not being open, or there for that matter, the Gamestop in Evanston (not the downtown one) at Dodge and Dempster is gone. I thought the company was opening more stores, not closing them. o_O

There was a separate Blockbuster thread goin' for a while there, but it might've been merged into the main BB/GR Thread XXI that now notes the new shipments of cheap used games in the OP (you might have to dig deeper for the actual lists of games found):

http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=216693

I haven't been to any BBs in the area in the last week, so I don't know how many stores have gotten anything in. Maybe I'll check out a local store in the next few days, but it'll take some really great finds to get me off my buy-new kick. Happy hunting, all.

My bad, here's the other thread just about that clear-ance:

New Shipments of Prepack Games should be in Blockbuster stores. LOTS of good

By the way, I picked up a penny guide for Battlefield: Bad Company over at the Best Buy in Evanston on Howard Saturday night with that T3 DVD with the Terminator Resurrection movie cash in it (which is only good till the end of the month). The B:BC book was even labelled with a penny price tag in the game-guide section. There were two left after I'd gone. If anyone wants my Bad Company guide (for trade or sale?), let me know.
