You might be better off getting a new PS3. Sometimes those YLOD fixes can get pretty expensive.


$65- 89 isn't that bad to fix my 60gb, but I want my saves and stuff.

What is YLOD, besides the gang? LOL

Also, Tap Room for the next Lesnar fight?


Date? I'd be interested.

Date for the discussed Lesnar fight is this Saturday from 9-12. I plan on watching it no matter what either at a friends house, or possibly if something materializes here.

As far as the Tap Room goes, I saw 2 locations, one is 3010 N Lincoln Ave, the other is 1501 N Dayton Street. Not sure which one was the one hinted at. The one on Lincoln is like 4-5 blocks from my house, so I may be down with that. Don't know if there's a cover, I've never been there. I usually drink a couple blocks closer to the house, God knows there's enough places to go in this area.

That's not too bad then. I've seen a few repairs go into the $150 range.

Hey CAG's. The NBA season is right around the corner. I am an 11 game Bulls Ticket Plan owner. I was hoping to be able to go to all of them but money is a little tight so I need to sell some of them. All games come in sets of 2 tickets in the 300 level. I have 6 games right now that I'm willing to part with. I am selling these tickets at $55 each so $110 for a bundle. F.Y.I- Face value is $60-$70 so you are getting an awsome deal already. I only paid $50 a ticket because of the season ticket plan discount. I'm not looking to make a big profit here. Prices are firm and you have to buy both tickets for that game. Just trying to stay afloat and give CAG's a great time at a Bull's game.

All games start at 7:00 p.m as of right now.
December 1st (Wed.) vs. Orlando Magic- 307 Row 3 Seat- 7,8
December 4th (Sat.) vs. Houston Rockets- 307 Row 3 Seat- 5,6
December 6th (Mon.) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder- 307 Row 5 Seat 1,2
January 10th (Mon.) vs. Detroit Pistons- 307 Row 3 Seat 3,4
March 11th (Fri.) vs. Atlanta Hawks- 309 Row 1 Seat 13,14
April 5th (Tues.) vs. Phoenix Suns- 309 Row 1 Seat 15,16

This is easier for me to do because my only other option is Stubhub and Bulls Tix Exchange. They are great websites but this is will help us avoid any fees and hassle.

I have the option to either directly e-mail them to you or I can mail them to you in a greeting card if you prefer the actual tickets and not a printed version. I like in the suburbs so unless you live around the Mokena area, I can't make trips out due to my schedule.

I need a new signature.

They don't have a cover, but they do raise the drink prices a bit for the fights.

Thanks, I'm 50/50 going, gotta see what's up with my sister, I'll PM you if I'm for sure.

Hit up Galloping Ghost again. I've got too much time on my hands I guess. Plus wanted to let my brother check it out. A friend of mine who came with broke the house record in Street Fighter II turbo and got his name posted above the machine. LOL, I knew he just had to have it. Don't remember if they had it the first time we all went, but they've got cards posted on every single machine with house record/world record. Surprised to see that quite a few world records have fallen at this very arcade already. Talked to Doc again. He apologized for not coming on CAG but I can understand, cause the guy's busy as hell. I told him we're interested in making another meet-up there sometime, but we don't have a date planned yet. He said the $5 off admission still stands for us. Also said to let him know if we want to plan any private tournaments for our group as well, or book any of the private rooms. As far as new games running, Gauntlet Dark Legacy, Arctic Thunder 2 player link, Guilty Gear XX, Need for Speed Underground, and probably a few spot others. Said he got 7 new monitors in, so the priorities to fix soon will be NBA Jam and the Killer Instinct games. Sounds good to me. Let me know guys, I'm ready to do this again.

It's good to see the high scores sticking. I remember Doc said something about them having to reset the scores every night because they couldn't keep the machines on or something. I can't remember exactly.

Hey Everyone

I again hope to be on here more...just been really busy trying to get everything up and running still at the Galloping Ghost Arcade. We still do have to shut the machines off at night which loses some scores. I'm going to try to add battery packs to some games, so the scores will be retained, but that won't be for a little bit still. We do have all the high score cards on the machines, that we update daily.
We hope you all do come back soon, it was a lot fun last time you were out. Let me know a little bit in advance and I can set up some extra cool stuff for you guys. And definitely let me know if you guys have any suggestions...tournaments, specific arcade games ready or anything.

Thanks

Doc

Hey Doc,

Is the list of games pretty up to date on your site? Just want to check the status of the Time Soldiers and Heavy Barrel machines.

Hope to make it back out there soon!

I watched the New Orleans show when it was featured on PBS a couple months ago. Liked the game music I recognized, but there was a lot less game video up on the monitors that I was interested in compared to the Final Fantasy show that rolled into town years back (save some trailers for StarCraft II & Halo?). The Mario & Zelda segments were probably the most iconic and well realized of the prepared audio + video combos... and the most nostalgic. Coulda used more Castlevania remix (and Streets of Rage techno?), but I guess that's what bands jamming on YouTube are for. In a similar vein, I would like to have seen the Star Wars video concert in person, but I'm not sure I would want to pay the hefty fee to attend.

I just wanna throw the date Saturday November 27 out there for a possible next meet-up/swap. 2 days after Thanksgiving, the day after Black Friday. Galloping Ghost or wherever else anyone wants to throw out there. Just getting a feeling for people's availability. I just think that or the week after could be good for trading coming off all the sales.

I'm hoping to finally make the next CAG meet up after missing the last few due to trips out of town. 11/27 would work for me. I need to clear out some games/PC components before my (expected) BF online orders arrive. I don't want to bring everything, but I can set up a list prior to the get together so I know what to bring.

I realize this is a bit north (and not Video Game related), but Bat 17 (http://www.bat17evanston.com/) tends to be a laid back place, with great food, liquor (and free coffee), and without an age restriction. It is also one block away from a CTA stop and two blocks away from a Metra stop.
