Just a question for those of you that sell guides to other CAGs...What is a fair price to charge per guide? Is there a guideline (pun intended) for pricing?

Strategy guides. like brady, prima, etc. they are penny guides, that someone wants to buy from me and I did not know if there is some cag standard pricing.

Usually $2-3 each. If it's super-rare, then maybe a little more.

As the poster above me said, it all depends on what for game it is. I recently found a Final Fantasy VIII strat guide at my old job and bought it for a penny. One was factory sealed, the other wasn't. So I bought both, I assume they'd go for at least 30.00.

It depends on how much you want to spend.

Speaking of which, if someone sees a four door, dark blue acura integra w/ dark tinting on all windows, lemme know yeah?

Sorry to hear that. My car was stolen a couple years ago, but thankfully, it was found (minus the stereo, amp, speakers, and bowling shoes (?!) And the police didn't find it, my girlfriend's parents found it with some dude driving around in it.

With gas prices the way they are, I want to buy a Honda Civic/Accord or Acura Integra. But most people I know who owns those cars have had their cars almost stolen at least once.

PGR4 was $15 at Target in the Harlem-Irving Plaza, but laziness/etc. prevented me from posting it, for all those interested.
It _may_ still be there. From what I saw they weren't planning on moving anytime soon. My copy is, sadly, still sealed.

None. Not too sound racist but surprisingly the majority of the people there were white.

Heh. I think a couple of my friends went to the concert too (some spanish dudes). I always laugh when I go into Best Buy or something and I hear the biggest white yuppies asking "So where can I get the new Common album?" :rofl:

Common is more of a hip hop artist and an indie one at that, so you may see suburban whites or hipsters that like him. I booked him in 1996 and I think he was called common sense back then or maybe it was his album name. I remember there was a lot of confusion when it came to contracts.

I get more angry when I see white wankstas blasting Yin Yang Twins or some other no talent hack. There is a movie named HAVOC that captures what I am talking about...Plus Anne Hathaway has a nude scene. :drool:

Most of the rappers today have street cred, but little to no talent. Pretty much every show is 5 $$$$as talking in a mic.


Note: I do not think Too Short has any talent, but I am still probably going to go just to see B.J. Betty performed live.
