Tomorrow 12/31 will be the last day to get discounted tickets for C2E2.

If you are student the discount code "STU5" should save you another $5, but they say be prepared to show your student ID. That code is from last year, so I am not sure if it will work or not as I am not a student and I bought my Tix from a comic store last year.


Thanks for reminding me! My brother has been bugging me about it too, but I probably still would have forgotten. Last show was refreshing after the crappy "Twilight edition" of the 2009 Wizard con. This past Wizard was better, but overcrowded and still missing out big time on the comic portion of the comic-con. Plus McCormick Place is much larger and easier to walk through, not to mention like 10 minutes to get to from my house. :) I'll be in for the weekend pass, so hit me up if anyone wants to meet-up and compare findings.

For those looking for a few guides from the last drop, the John Hancock BB has The Zelda LE guide, Alpha Protocol, and others. I could buy any of them because I didn't want to lug the guides walking miles downtown and on the Metra. Take a bookbag.

Going with a group of guys to galloping ghost on the 15th again. Everytime I tell someone about it they want to go with me, and this day works for us. If anyone wants to swing by, it's always good seeing you guys.

Over the past few weeks I've been keeping an eye on some of the clearance games at the Target on Elston Ave., waiting for them to hit the sweet spot. I go there today, and all the good games were gone! I wanted Fallout GOTY for Xbox 360, but no it was not meant to be. All that was left was some Wii, DS, and PS2 games, one PS3 game, UFC Undisputed and Band Hero (both for Xbox 360). Left with Band Hero. Someone here beat me to that copy of Fallout?

@z: I don't hit that one, but the last several times I've been to Targets, their clearance sections are either crap or nonexistent.

I was at that Target last week and it was a nightmare to get out of the lot. The post-Christmas crowd was a killer. Wouldn't have grabbed the Fallout anyway. If I see one cheap later this week when I get out I'll let you know. If anyone sees a Red Steel 2 with Motion+ drop to 9.98 let me know too. I've been eyeing them at a few stores but they're still $20 everytime I see them.

I've hit some Targets and there is very little in the realm of games. I saw a Fallout 3 on 360 (non GOTY?) and Lost Planet 2 on PS3 that was out of system @ 9.98. They had some random DS games, but overall pretty limited.

Hey has anyone ever been to Game Pazzo in Downers Grove? I drive past it every day on my way to work in Oak Brook, and just now decided to look it up.

They buy/sell/trade but apparently you can also "rent" spots to try games. There's also food/bar (unsure if alcohol), tournaments, a music stage, etc.

There are tournaments on the 14th and WGN will be there.


Friday, January 14 at 5:00pm - January 15 at 2:00am


WGN Channel 9 is coming in to film around the arcade! They are going to be arriving around 5PM and should be there for a few hours. We are also holding THREE tournaments! Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat II (the actors from Mortal Kombat have been invited too) & Super Street Fighter IV! Prizes for each tournament shall be announced soon. Should be a lot of fun and maybe you'll even be on TV!

Yeah I saw the tournament thing for Friday, but one of my friends can only go on Saturday. I've got this urge to go on Friday anyway. I don't really want to go both days, but I have considered it. Gotta think it over. :-k

I actually don't have that one. Amazon says it is from 2008, but I don't remember even seeing it before.

I'm not sure I understand why you would open a place like this, it's just console and PC games. If it had arcade cabinets I would understand but it's just consoles and PC's, I don't get it! :-| Yes, you can be social while gaming in this place but couldn't you just do this at your house?

Always a fun time at Galloping Ghost again today. Broke my own Puzzle Fighter house record, my friend also broke the SFII Turbo record once again. New games up and running since I was there a few weeks ago, more classics, Spy Hunter, Asteroids, and Popeye. Good stuff.

Also, I have an extra Fable 3 Collectors Edition I grabbed from a Best Buy, not sure if my brother is gonna want it or not, so I'm taking offers for trade, if anyone is interested.

I grabbed drive-thru at the Wendy's in Niles on Golf, and I got a coupon for a free Freestyle Coke w/ purchase of their new fries. I went back later that week and tried out the machine. I tried all the different "regular" Cokes they had. I liked the lime one; I remember when that was out years ago.

Here's a list of IL locations:
