I had totally forgotten about wizard world on the 11th, so I'm out on that day for a meetup. On the bright side, Nintendo is on the exhibitor list for the show, so here's hoping for some wii u demoing.

in Schaumburg there is a disc replay on Golf and Roselle, and then north of there on Roselle is another used game store. both have older stuff. didn't say good, just said older :)


Really?? Do you remember the name of it? Any easy-to-spot nearby landmarks/stores?
I've been to the Disc Replay a bunch of times but I never knew about/noticed the other store despite the fact that I take Roselle all the way north til it hits Baldwin/Rt 14.
Plus now my commute for my new job takes me right through that area every day so I'm even more interested. :)

Did anyone go to Wii-U experience?


I did! :D

I went to the 1-3PM event with some friends on Saturday the 21st. (for anyone else that was there during that time, I was the tall dude with the NES controller bag)
I got to try out Zombie-U, Rayman Legends, NSMB-U, Game & Wario, and a few of the Nintendo Land mini games and I was pretty impressed with just about everything! :)


Is there anywhere to get cheaper tickets[to Wizard World 2012]?


I'm extremely interested in any info on this as well.

I got a 4-day pass through Yelp last year for $35 which is apparently the same price as a one-day pass this year... actually $45 for Saturday! :shock:
I'm probably only going to go one day this year (most likely Sunday) but if I can get a multi-day pass for less than or equal to the cost of a 1-day pass that's a no-brainer.

I was there over a year ago and I'm not sure what the name was, but looking at Google Maps I think it's "Super Cheap DVD's", like 2 blocks north of Golf on Roselle. Could be wrong, though.

There is a place in Schaumburg named super cheap. I have never been there though. They have a ton of CL listing in the video games category.

If it's the same guys that sell at the Allstate flea market, they're nothing special. Some of the prices I saw were pretty ridiculous.

On another note, I guess the Disc Replay in Bloomingdale is moving to Elgin, which sucks for me because Elgin's way too far out of the way for me.

I've seen/bought stuff from them at the flea market in the past but I can't believe I never noticed their shop. I'll have to pop in there sometime.

The one on Army Trail?! That absolutely sucks!

I always stop off on Army Trail before/after visiting my family in Wheaton because it's the perfect shopping strip for me.
It has TRU, Half-Price-Books, Best Buy, Disc Replay, Gamestop, Wal-Mart, and Target all in a row! :D
Plus there's a K-Mart a little up the road and there used to be a Play N' Trade too.

I do have some friends in Elgin though, so I'm curious where the new location will be.

I may have a 1 day pass available for wizard world. I need to see if it is tied to a specific day or if it can be used any day. I believe I will have to put a name on it for it to be issued, so I will have more details tonight.

If anyone is interested in stargate there are tickets for cheap on goldstar for the stargate convention in rosemont 8/17-19. Most of them are free with a service charge of around 7-8 bucks for each day.

Thanks for the heads up. I need to read this thread more often. I live close enough to the one on Roselle in Schaumburg, but I wouldn't mind having one in Elgin as well. People in this town like to pawn. The used stock should cycle in pretty quick.


I wanted to hit up Wizard World after I missed C2E2 this year, but these cons are always the weekend before my paycheck aka when I am at my poorest. Oh well at least next year I will have all these dental bills gone finally.

Looking at August 18 for the meet-up @ Emporium (Bucktown). I don't have any plans over Labor Day, either, so we could plan a Galloping Ghost meet-up, if you guys want.

Some Yelp reviews of Emporium:

Yeah, and I just realized that weekend (Aug. 18) is the Air and Water Show. Maybe Labor Day weekend is better for Galloping Ghost? To tell you the truth, I'd almost rather do that since the reviews on Emporium were not that great.

People like the place but the weekends in the area, every bar is packed as hell after 8. And some hipsters stink.

Anyone down for a Sat Sept 15th date? It kinda keeps in line with the mid-Sept tradition of the previous 2 years meeting up at Galloping Ghost(see: picture in OP).

I work very close to the one opening in Elgin, I took a peak inside the windows yesterday, small store similar in size to the one in West Dundee was in its final location. Looks like only DVD/Blu Rays and Games, no music.

The Blockbuster next door is closing mid Sept, if you want any discounted blurays and games

I was gonna hit the Lawrence Sears today, but I saw a post on that slickdeals thread that someone hit the Chicagoland ones and nothing was discounted yet, so saved a trip. I was also gonna go on Friday then, but my car was just totaled on the way home, so disposable income has sunk to zero. eff em el

Hey Chicago CAGs,

I'm selling a lot of games from my collection because I need money to buy a car. Check out my list and see if there's anything you like. I have a lot of sealed games and RPGs. I'd like to sell locally so just let me know if you want anything!
