A Black Friday after-party sounds cool. Would anyone be up for Texas Hold'em poker where we can contribute gameguides/cheap games into the grand prize pot? (I have a foldable table & chipset lying around that need to be used) Just a fun alternative unless your house has a tv and system in every room for all the CAGs haha. Please keep us posted.

My Current Lowball Sale is ACTIVE NOW.  Relieve my sorrows and bid if you can. Ends 8/4.

I'll take rain over snow this time of year. Today was really nice actually. I'm dreading the inevitable drop in temp back down into the 40's :(

Massive, slow-moving cold front combined with remnants of a hurricane that was near Baja. I really feel for the farmers, as they had problems planting earlier in the year, and now the harvest is messed up.

Anyone try the glitch at any chicago area BB's for the b2g1 deal? Any confirmation of where it works will be nice?

I know this is a long shot, but do any of you guys have an older version of PS3 firmware on a flash drive? I just want one that can earn trophies, but I do not want to risk updating to 3.0 or 3.01.

Coming from a 28 year-old guy, this is going to sound pathetic, but I'm thinking about having a get together at my house sometime after my parents go back to Mexico. The only potential draw back is that it's in the NW suburbs. Although, it's close to the yellow line and can be reached by CTA and a little help by Pace. Maybe shortly after Black Friday would be good so we can see about trading/playing video games we got over that weekend.
This city's CAGsters could use some revitalization.


Sounds good to me. I'll probably need to get rid of some games by that time. What burb is it exactly?

Ok, here is what I know so far.

Bestbuy in Burbank on 79th South Cicero

I scanned in order

operation flashpoint
Tetris
popcap collection

It gave me the middle game free, not the most expensive. I will be returning later tonight to try and put operation flashpoint as the middle game.

Bestbuy on belmont/ near kedzie by the expressway.

Scanned in order:

Rock Revo xbox
Operation Flashpoint
Rock Revo

I got the first game free. Will try again later tonight to see if I will get Operation flashpoint free if placed first.



Bestbuy on Elton

Scanned in order

Operation Flashpoint
Rock revo xbox
rock revo xbox

Success. Got Operation flashpoint free.


Please post any success/ failures in the city or near suburbs. We only have 2 days left of this sale and I would like to get in on this deal some more.

It'd be in Niles. This is all tentative, so don't get crazy if it doesn't come about. I'm just tired of us not being able to set a date and location for a meet up.
My house will be pretty empty come mid-November, so it'd be after then.
I have a PS3, a 1080p 50-inch tv, a 720p 32-inch tv, a 36-inch CRT tv in the basement, and wireless internet. It's not a technophiliac's dream, but there's enough room and tech here to have a good gaming time.

I noticed you can't even find RR on the BB website now. I'm stopping by the Elston store before work to check it out, but I'd assume corporate will have this sorted by tomorrow.

I'll be damned, but it worked. Halo ODST, Borderlands, Brutal Legend, Tekken 6, Forza, and Batman for $60 + our ridiculous sales tax. Oh, and 12 copies of Rock Revolution that will likely end up at Half Price Books.

If you're going to try this, forget Evanston and Elston. While it lasts, try North and Sheffield or Belmont and Kimball. I had success by bookending the RRs and making sure they're different (360/PS3).

Good luck CAGs!

And no, I'm not gonna shed a tear for BB losing money due to their own programming ineptitude.

You could have at least bought a $20 game instead of using all those RRs. Do they have any RRs left?

N&S has plenty of both and I had to scrounge at B&K to find a 360. Some of the BBs I hit had none of either.

Do you have a reading problem?

I bought from 4 different stores; 2 copies of each from 2 stores and a pair from the others isn't that much.

Its not a reading problem. I was there and I remember there being a mess load of RR's for ps3 and xboxes. Seems strange to avoid that store when I was just there the night before. Relax.

Avoid the stores at Elston and in Evanston because the cashiers/mgrs are aware of the glitch, not because I cleaned out the store, jackass. Read before you start accusing.

See, you didn't state that and everyone also assumed you used up all the rock revo's idiot. I wasn't the only one.

How about next time, you post better details and not make a vague post.
