Haven't found any great deals lately... sadly. Looked around at our Kmarts a bit, seems like people cleared them out already. Got Wind Waker for $8 and Donkey Konga 2 for $3.50 though, so I guess that's good.

Hey, cuu. Like fLipEN`said above, could you share which Kmart had the DK2 still in stock? I bought Jungle Beat and the two bongos when they were $10 after Christmas, but I still need some Konga music games to go along with them.

Looking for Bongos, as I have none, so I can't play Konga 2. Are any gamestop in the west-suburb area selling them for the $5 they have them online? The ones (broadview and berwyn) I've checked are telling me $10. I'd like to not go for the online deal because I've got some gamestop giftcards I'd rather use up.

If it's bongos you're looking for, it looks like practically every EB/GameStop on the north side's got extra bongos in stock (if the online inventory system is to be believed). The problem is that the web site prices might not match with those in stores, unfortunately. And GS still doesn't take gift cards online? Sheesh. Short of that, if you're willing to go online and wouldn't mind picking up DK:Jungle Beat for $5 as well, get the set for $14.99 off their web site. Here are the GS web links I used for the bongos and DK:JB...

Well, sadly, I got the last copy of Donkey Konga 2, but they MIGHT have some Wind Wakers left. They had atleast 5 when I got Donkey Konga 2, but that was about a week ago. Someone could of snatched them, but who knows. They seemed to have a pretty well stocked game section (see: tons) when I went, there may be some good deals still hidden there. I didn't really check anything besides Gamecube.

It was the Roosevelt (Near Desplaines Ave) Location in Forest Park.



I might bite on that Jungle Beat deal, but I kinda dont want to spend more money than I have to at the moment. I want to play Konga 2, and it totally sucks without the bongos! I might just wait for another gamestop deal or something. -shrug-

I've been there 1 week ago, and they had about 3 copies.

I don't remember the price, only saw the cases.


WOW! I went there today (one on Clark) and nothing was there. No Dead aims, no cases, nothing. If you saw them there, someone must have cleaned them out. The lady working there called a Crazy on I believe Kedzie but they only had the disc.

If someone cleaned these out, F U!!

Chicago cags do me a good one and let me know if you spot Dead aim with a case anywhere...please, thanks!

gamestop has their product availability online (just tried, a few in the area say they have a copy), did you try calling around to those places that say they've got 1-3 in stock?

Thanks. I'll try that route. I kind of don't go to gamestop for used stuff since about 90 percent of the time I buy a game it doesn't work or freezes constantly. I hope they didn't do a jacked up prices for it.

Thanks for the heads up!

Nothing for the PS2 caught my eye except Resident Evil 4 (Hits version) marked down to $13.98. I THINK they had only one of those (which I didn't buy).


They also had Quake 4 for PC (didn't check the price, tho) just in case anyone's interested.

Just and FYI, both Gamestops in Orland Park are running the b2g1 free sale on all used products. The employee that I spoke to said that this will go on indefinitely, but just at the two Orland stores. Are there any other stores like this around Chicagoland?

I went to a Best Buy tonight (2/12) in Batavia off Randall Rd. ( I go to NIU so only a 30 min or so drive) and they had about 20 Wiis out. I picked one up for myself :) A nice score.

Stopped by the Howard Target to see what was there today. The original Baten Kaitos for the GameCube (Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, not BK Origins) was five bucks, so I had to pick it up. A few Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble's were on a $15 DS endcap at one of the registers, but I didn't bother to check the price. (Heard it was five bucks in the most recent Target thread.) Unfortunately, Sonic Mega Collection Plus for the PS2 (Greatest Hits edition) was still $20 and in the locked case; I had the price for that title checked, too.

At any rate, if you want the first Baten Kaitos game for the GameCube, there should be a couple near the top of a GameCube corner rack at the back end of the first game aisle near electronics. They're just behind one copy of a GC title like Animal Crossing, Super Mario Sunshine, or something or other (can't remember which right now).

Matteson is the one way SE of the city right? Around 130th St close to the Indiana border?

One of the Chicago stores is supposed to be closing too - I'm guessing it's the North Ave one but I'll check tomorrow.
