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:

Marcus is on WGN? I went to school with him...He used to take photos for the newspaper at my punk rock / indie shows.

I also know the guy in the Iron maiden shirt they interviewed. Every time I go to or see something about the Arcade, I see someone I know. Weird.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to say thank you for coming to the Galloping Ghost Arcade. I know several of you asked for more multiplayer games, and just wanted to let you know I just finished setting up SUNSET RIDERS - 4 Player! Always great talking with you CAG members when you stop by, and hope to see you soon! And this week if you come in and say you are from CAG I can give you $3 off admission. Thanks again - Doc

I hit Moe's in Schaumburg. Half Orange Coke + Half Vanilla Coke = Epic Creamsicle Coke

Went nuts before I left and put all the fruity Cokes in one cup...tasted like Dr. Pepper.

As a side note, the same Moe's is giving away burritos tomorrow after 3 p.m. One freebie per customer.

I don't like these machines. Some of them work fine, others times I get what tastes like a black club soda... (i.e. Quizno's on Halsted by UIC) (don't remember if it was a coke or pepsi machines)

I was gonna swap out the joystick on my SF4 TE stick but never got around to it, but I was looking around here. Wouldn't hurt to contact Doc at Galloping Ghost also, he may have extra parts or can direct you to a supplier as well. He used to help others out with repairs in the past but I know his time is more limited with the arcade open now.

In case any of you guys want to take advantage of the K-Mart deals this week, the K-Mart at the HIP has several copies left of Mass Effect 2 and Dead Space 2. They also have a few PSP-3000s left.

I was wondering if any CAGs in the area has seen BlazBlue: Continuum Shift on clearance at Best Buy? Still full price at Downers Grove (Butterfield) and Addison. In addition, any shops that still have Hexyz Force for PSP?

Hey I just saw your PM and figured I'd reply here for everyone's benefit.
I may have made a mistake when I posted about it before, but the game on clearance at my Best Buy was BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, AKA: the first BlazBlue.

The 2nd game is still full price ($39.99). BUT it's only $29.99 @ Gamestop and on Amazon, if that helps.

A couple other games went on clearance (@ Best Buy) recently:

PS3/360 - Rogue Warrior - $9.99
360 - Chronicles of Riddick - $8.99

My door is also blocked by snow, but I can open it enough that I would be able to un-obstruct the passage.

Ah okay. Thanks for the update. I also already have Calamity Trigger. That just leaves me to see if I have to resort to heading into a Chicago GameStop for Hexyz Force. I wonder if any still have a sealed copy? I could have sworn seeing it somewhere else. A K-Mart or a Meijer I believe....

Quick everyone, get out to the stores! The clearance is the best it's ever been in history, and everyone has better than Black Friday doorbusters!!!!



Not really, but if you wanna trudge though the arctic out there, go right ahead. I was able to clean half my car off today, but the street side will have to wait for a plow, because the street itself is up to my waist. No use burying myself on that side to get the snow off and then have a plow put it all back, especially since I can't drive down the street anyway.

Huh. I drive past that place every day on my way to work and from the outside it doesn't look big enough to host an event. Deceptive!

Any watch the Chicago Code last night? I thought it wasn't too bad for a start but it seemed to laid back for a show that was pinned to be very serious.

I think I've been spoiled by cop shows like "The Wire" & "The Shield". The opening sequence of the car chase was just plain silly. Seems like the network executives have their hands all over it which is too bad. It was fun to see the city, but not fun enough that I think it makes up for a lackluster show. On a related note, Justified starts up tonight on FX:bouncy:.

The only thing that could have made "The Shield" better is nudity. That show was close to perfect. It didn't need it, but that is the only thing I think they could have changed (if it was on another channel) to make it better.
