Posted 06 May 2005 - 07:22 AM

so, i stopped by three more gamecrazys today, and was quite surprised at the amount of stuff still hanging around. i picked up:

SNES:

Legend of Zelda
Secret of Evermore
Kirby Super Star
Romance of the Three Kingdoms II
Final Fantasy II

PS1:

Dragon Warrior VII (disc only)
Final Fantasy 8 (non-gh, complete)
Legend of Mana (disc only)
Buster Bros. Collection (disc only)

N64:

The New Tetris
Paper Mario x2

Sure, nothing compared to the first day, but still a solid haul. The one on Harlem is pretty cleared out (of the good stuff at least), but the ones on North and Central still have quite a bit. I don't feel like listing specifics of what's left over, but if you ask me about a game I can probably tell you whether they had it or not.

If anyone here's looking for Fatal Frame 1 on the Xbox, Reckless Records on Broadway has a nice complete copy for $16.99! It usually goes for 25 and up.

If you're asking why we aren't posting, perhaps more proactive measures need to be taken to get more Chicago CAGs in here (and subscribed to this thread). If you're asking why we aren't getting together more, I suppose a concrete place and time for eating, trading, or playing would help things along (even if everyone can't make it). Anything happen with that Baker's-Square thing?

I need a favor from a Chicago-based CAG to pick up a game at a local gamestop. I always enter an IL zip code because my cousin's there, but this store is too far from him.

If anyone's feeling generous and wants to help, please PM me. Thank you.

A question for everyone. I've been searching through a few nearby Gamecrazy stores for The New Tetris on 64. Has anyone seen copies left anywhere and if so, where?

I want to say the GC in Niles (after looking through the lists of available games there), but I can't say for certain. Your best bet is to call, regardless of location. Helpful employees may possibly be able to check the system to see which stores got the game in stock, but my memory may be muddled by calling too many Best Buys and Circuit Citys in the past. Good luck.

Thanks. I suppose it does make more sense to call. I'm always afraid that I'll get a lazy employee who will put the phone down and answer without even checking. Plus, there is always the thrill of the unknown search. Still, the remaining stores I haven't checked continue to be further and further away, so I guess it pays in gas to call ahead at this point.

i'll be there. ugh, soooooooo far though. i can't imagine that's easy to get to for most of the people going; still, i suppose we need a place, and it's easier to plan once we have one. so yeah, i'll be there. maybe we should PM everyone who's posted in this thread before and tell them about it?

Thanks for contacting me and setting this up, but unfortunately I can't go. I watch my son on Friday nights. :(

Which Meijer store is the closet to the West side of Chicago?

When I looked up locations online, the closest one to the north side was the one in Rolling Meadows. (I didn't end up going, but I told a friend about the Samurai Warriors sale.) If you want to check out some of the other locations in Algonquin, Aurora, Elgin, Bolingbrook, and so on, check out the Illinois portion of Meijer's store locator. Maybe you know the area better than I do, and figure out a closer location to the West Side:

http://www.meijer.co...&page=&state=IL

Oh, and it looks like I have to pick up some friends from the airport on the evening of the 10th (of June), so dinner at Baker's Square might be out for me. Depending on how the evening goes, I might be able to stop by for dessert, but I wouldn't count on it. Hope you guys have fun, though.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I found a copy of Tales of Symphonia for $9 on Saturday. I already own the game, so I left it for someone else. It is in Downer's Grove, right near the Fry's, in Finley Plaza. Finley Plaza has a TRU, a Best Buy, and a litle Further down, a store labled "Cds Music & Games" or something of that nature. The real name of the store is Disc Replay, and near the back of the store is a copy of Tales if anybody is interested. It's worth a shot, and even if it is gone by now, they have a good collection of ps2, gc, xbox, snes, genesis etc games.

Hey, all. If I possibly get a chance to make it, either to the beginning or somewhere near the end of this meeting/meal, how will I be able to find whoever's attending? Any names for parties that this group will be under, or other personal identifiers I can use to find you all? Maybe someone can come with a PSP (or two) strapped to their wrist(s)? I just realized that I don't know most of your names or what you look like, so something like that could be pretty helpful (and maybe not just for me). PM me back if you'd rather not post these kinds of things. Thanks.
