No worries. I just wanted to ask you which date is better for you.

I think we should plan on Sept. 11. I can't get through on the arcade's phone number to check hours, though.

Same. Does anyone know what the hours are? There are some quick tour videos up on YouTube about this place:

And if we have a head count I can try to work out a group discount with the arcade.


I spoke to Doc today, inquiring about hours (they will probably open around noon and close around 2AM) and he said to call back today around 3PM. I hope I didn't overstep, but I mentioned that we might have up to 10.

They have 2 gaming rooms that rent by the hour, with 4 x 42" flat screens, and they provide the console of your choice (plus, they take special game requests if they don't already have them:hot:).

They do have a snack bar (popcorn, pizza, etc.), but there are a few places to eat around there, too.

Wow I just saw a video tour of it and I am impressed. The private gaming rooms are sweet. Right now I'm a maybe, I have to see how Sept. 11th will work out for me. If I do come though, I really want to do a playthrough of the Simpsons game with some of you guys. It's been too long since I've used Bart's skateboard or Marge's vacum.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you drop for all those?

I just saw the thread today. I would have gotten in on some cheap games if I knew about it when it started.

I am totally creaming my shorts over that game list at Galloping Ghost. I wish I were in town this weekend to check it out.


Pretty much every fighting game you could possibly imagine. I never thought I'd see a SSFIV machine in person.

Too bad no DDR...

Oh, and I'll be bringing a couple extra DJ Hero bundles (clearance at TRU today and tomorrow), if you dudes aren't able to get one for yourselves.

Hmm, I was at TRU on Monday, but they didn't have the 'new' Halo: Reach cards for this week! I'm wondering how in the world did you get all those games so cheap?...:drool:

For the 1st couple of days, the coupon took off $10 every 360 game including one under $10. Then on Friday, there was (or still is) a 30% off all clearance games and you could use the coupon (in some TRU stores). So there.

They had 30% off all 360 games ending in "8 or 0". The first Halo card took $10 off each game. (This was the week 1 card).

Story from when I picked up the games:

The employee told me "You are lucky to beat the other guy to the store"

"What other guy?"

"There is a guy who comes here every week and he buys a ton of stuff. He told me he resells video games for a living"

"The Play n Trade guy?"

"No. He comes in here too (and he buys a lot), but the other guy told me he 'sells video games for his job'. He finds the deals on a game website."

"Did he say what site?...Was it slickdeals?"

"No it was cheap gamer or something like that".

Should have told the worker that the "other guy" is a convicted sheep fucker, and to not sell games to him.:lol:

I know I have a couple of SNES, but I think I am actually short 1 official controller. I have a 3rd party controller, but I haven't tested it yet.

I will try to go through my systems this weekend. :)

My guides have been getting the majority of my attention, since I finally have them all in one place! If you guys have any you are looking for I can check my shelves!

I'm not big into collecting guides, but I believe I have that Manhunt one you were looking for. Any chance you'd be able to post what you're willing to put up for trade? In related news, I wish I coulda found Rock Band 2 or LEGO Rock Band during the 360 coupon sale last week@TRU. :-( No Week 2 Halo card from the Western Ave. TRU on Monday, either (though I already own all the relevant games).
