Do you all play other non-FPS games in tournaments?
I didn't know you all were so close to me. Isn't Lawrence in the middle of L-town?

L-town?

I guess it's more of a black thing LOL :D
It's called L-Town because all the streets on that part of the westside start with the Letter L. L-town is close to Oak Park. It's like Lorel, Laramie, Leamington, etc
Then it's K-town which is Kostner and all those other streets.

I don't think that's what K-town stands for... I've known K-town as the area close to Kimball and Lawrence since it's basically where most of the Koreans in Chicago seem to live... if you want some good spicy chicken, I recommend going to the 'Great Seas' Restaurant (on Lawrence, about 2-3 blocks east of Kimball)... ask for the lollipop chicken... also if you want, you can order the spicy sauce (in hot or mild versions but I recommend the spicy) separately... goes good w/ other meat products... I get that stuff almost every week :lol:

Then it's 2 K-towns. I forgot about the Korean thing. But when I'm at a BSU (Black Student Union)
meeting at my school, it's this teacher always talking about how his uncle was a drug dealer and a pimp in K-town and now he has about 10 children.

Hello guys,

I live in the South Side (Oak Lawn)

I figured I'd help the thread out a little bit. There are a few places that I know of. Here is one place for now.

-----------------

Highscore (95th and Ridgeland Ave.)
Although some prices are a little bit on the high side, this store is great. They have everything you might be intrested in. Vintage, imports, rare accessories .. etc. Here are a few things I picked up the last month:

Sega CD/Genesis combo Model 1 in mint condition with two controllers and any 4 CD games 14.99 or less. They still have one more for 79.99

Star Ocean: The 2nd Story (Brand New PSX) for 29.99
I believe they have one more

Tales of Destiny 2 (Brand New PSX) for 29.99

Gradius III & IV (Mint used PS2) for 9.99

Used XBOX with three month warranty at the store for $100

I am sure you will find what you need. They have DVDs, Anime, Domestic games for most systems, DC Imports, PS2 Imports, Saturn Imports, NEOGEO, NEOGEO Pocket, LYNX, All the vintage Ataris, Posters, Wallscrolls, Gundam figures, trading cards, arcade sticks..........

-------------

Also if you are into the rare games like shooters and fighters, you might wanna check out the GameCrazy special order. You can order any game and they locate it at any store nationally and ship it for 6 bucks. It usually takes about a week to get a game. They also run for alot less than what you pay on ebay. I also had luck with the gamestop website.. I just search for a game I want and check if any store around me has them. I made a hefty amount of money getting games like Power Stone 2, MVC 2, GigaWing 2, Bangai-O, Mars Matrix, and Project Justice for DC. Not to mention the other platforms.

So good luck on your hunt

Well like best buy is having the sale. I was wondering if any of you have found certain locations that have some of the games that are on clearance. If anyone can help, I'm looking for winning eleven 6 (ps2), the suffering (xbox), whiplash (xbox) and bomberman jetter (gc).

The one by Lane Tech has some bummy console deals, but the PC games are ok. I rarely go in there because I'm ready to go home after a long day at school, or go to BB and CC on North/Sheffild.

I posted this over in the VF4/Target/YMMV thread already, but I figured that this might be the place to post for a Chicago-area deal. Here goes...

I've been looking for a cheap copy of VF4:Evo in the Chicagoland area (north side, preferrably) for a while now. I was originally looking to get in on the (thru Saturday/today) B2G1 free deal at TRU (along with Guilty Gear for the Xbox and maybe another $20 game... like Soul Calibur II or Xenosaga), but if the game's really $5 at local Target stores, then I'm be all over it. I'll try calling a store early Saturday, but I was wondering: the Target web site still lists the game as $19.99, so is there any chance I can still get it that cheap in-store? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Oh yeah, and does anyone know if a Chicago-area TRU still has any copies of VF4:Evo in stock? I'll call, but I'm not sure if they'll check other store locations for me or not.
