East Side TRU is down to 30%. Still had some good DS games in stock this weekend (Castlevania, Metroid Pinball, Viewtiful Joe). Plenty of GB Micros @ 20% off, I think.

Do you recall seeing Sonic Rush? I haven't been there for a couple of weeks, but I'll have to head back this weekend and look for DS games and Xbox accessories.

I might be running through Madison tomorrow, anything I should check out or anything worth checking out (specfically TRU)? Looking for games (DS games) and if there's any good deals I'd be interested in stopping by.

DS is the best-stocked games section at the close-out TRU (the one nearest to 90).

The other TRU still has lots of $10 TRU games. I only know Gamecube, but they had Metroid Prime 2, Fight Night 2, Viewtiful Joe 2, Virtua Quest, Geist ....

The Best Buy in Janesville, which is between Madison and Illinois on 90, has some harder to find games like Meteos on DS. You can use the store locator on bb.com to determine if they have something you want. I was just there and they had bunches of Guitar Hero.

Otherwise, nothing jumps out at me right now.

EAU CLAIRE:


There used to be some great deals to be found at Target and Best Buy about a year ago, now there isn't really any great place to find deals.

Occasionally Best Buy will have a few games on $9.99 clearance, but not often. Oddly enough the best deals I've seen lately have been closeouts at walmart; they had new Eye Toys for $15.00 on clearance about two weeks ago.

Shopko is terrible for deals, their "clearance" is taking about $5 off of a $50 game from three years ago. It used to be that you could find insane, wild discounts at shopko, but no longer.

ahh! they had one? i didn't see it when i went to pick up Makai kingdom on sunday.
you lucky bastard ;) enjoy, it's a long, but addicting game.

how is that video game exchange store? fairly priced? do they price stuff based on rarity and all that? good selection?





they had a used copy of nocturne at the national ave. gamecrazy in milw.
i left with some teasures while i was there. picked up: Ys (new and last one), DDs (used), vampire night w/o gun (used), psychonaughts-xbox (new), and taiko (new).

Our Target still has some great clearance stuff every now and then, but like everywhere else, it comes in waves. The trick is catching it right when the price drops again, or it's gone in a flash. I'd say we've gotta be due for another clearance soon...

Oh yeah was at TRU today and grabbed what I'm pretty sure was the last Sonic Rush and Puyo Pop ($21 and $14). 1 Advance Wars DS left and 2 Nanostrays (both $35 normally -30%). I am poor otherwise I would've bought one of each of those too.

There were a lot of DS games still but other than the ones I listed not any I was willing to jump on. They had 5000000 copies of Baten Kaitos with the soundtrack included for GC. None of them had prices on them and the price scanner didn't work since there is a plastic ridge over part of the barcode and I didn't want to find somebody so I don't know the price. I'll probably get one if it's $14 next time I go.

There were a surprising amount of PSP games...most of them crap...and the entire display of psp games was covered in other random dvds/umds and stuff so I didn't bother looking (I sold my psp awhile ago). Lots of stuff for really little kids is left but most of the regular toys are gone.

Welcome to CAG! Right now I would think if you don't want to find it online (which may be your best bet), you could look at a rental store like the above said, or try and older game store, just an unordinary one. Sometimes you'll get lucky.

Well there you go. I ran across this thread but didn't check for that exact game, but sure enough, there's the manual.

fallenangel70, if you have PayPal, try trading with this person. I doubt they will trade without it, so if you don't have it, it's free. I will contact this user for you and have him give you a PM about it so maybe you 2 can work out a trade.

After reading this thread:

http://www.cheapassg...01&page=1&pp=20

I had already checked my Wal-Mart (Greenfield, WI) and they had them for $70, but they may have dropped even more now if anyone's interested. They had quite a few when I went so if anyone is around this area looking for one, you may want to check this or your local Walmart.

Anyone else who spots one at their Walmart, feel free to let us know and update us if a price has changed.

i checked out the sears at bayshore today and there was nothing i picked up(i was looking for dragonquest VIII, castlevania CoD, fire emblem sacred stones, metroid zero mission, and conker). this is what i remember seeing: the suffering (xbox, didnt check for ps2), metal gear 3, battalion wars (tempting but not cheap enough for me), the warriors (xbox, ps2), bujingai, ico, mario tennis (wish i knew that was 24.97 when i was there. i would've picked it up. i may have to go back and get it) and maybe battlefield MC, spartan, and WWE day of reckoning 2 (dont hold me to those last three, i was at best buy today too and that is affecting my memory) i was looking for the ones i listed specifically so i biasly (is that even a word? sounds right so i'll allow it) overlooked any other titles.

EDIT: went back today (3-3-06) and can confirm battlefield MC (ps2) and spartan (ps2). i also saw burnout revenge (ps2), tony hawk AW (GCN), donky konga 1 w/bongos, MK: shaolin monks (xbox), warioware twisted, L.A. Rush (ps2), x-men 2, and baten kaitos. i'm sure there's more that i'm missing, but thats all i can remember at the moment. i ended up getting war of the monsters (still a couple more there), mario tennis (last one), and pikmin 2. there's not a huge selection there, but there are some worthwile titles.

Green Bay has a Sears with a lot of clearance games. I was interested in the GBA games, but sadly there were few of those. A couple of DS and PSP games/movies. Mostly PS2/XBOX/GC.

I bought two of the Nintendo shirts. They're pretty cool, actually, not some lame crap like "Nintendo Rehabilitation Center" or anything. They just have a small squiggly D-pad type thing with Nintendo in the middle. And it's not really black, more of a grey
