Anybody know if any of the Border's in Madison (or anywhere else in WI) stock video game stuff? I'm 99% sure the one by Hilldale doesn't, and I don't think the East side one does, but haven't actually checked.

None in the vicinity of Madison do. I can't speak for the whole state though.

Edit: oh I've run into the fat and sweaty FW'ers/hoarders in Madison too. Fat woman with presumably her husband in PP east. Fat woman is knocking all the games off the shelves because she's a douchebag like every other hoarder. Finds a copy of NCAA basketball 2k3 for PS2 and shouts to her husband (who is standing right next to her) "THIS IS THE RARE ONE!!!! IT IS WORTH A LOT OF MONEY ON EBAY!!!!!!!!!" in that retard voice that all hoarders have.

I was going to tell her that she was a stupid bitch and punch her in the gut, but I wanted her to waste her no-doubt greasy money. And I was afraid my arm would get stuck.

I hit up preplayed east/west whenever I'm in the areas, which is often, but I don't buy games I don't want to play. More because I'm scared of turning into the people I see than because of any moral issue.

I want to know why the BB on 76th st doesnt sell gamer gift cards with the $5 off coupon but the new BB across the street from mayfair mall has TONS of them.

Cause BB is ghetto, Milwaukee is even more ghetto, so when you put the two together... it's scary. Only thing worse is Milwaukee + Walmart

Shit if you think Milwaukee is ghetto you wouldn't last 2 seconds on the streets of Chi town.

Really? That's news to keep in mind. I haven't been there lately, but I remember them having ggc's at the bb on 76th about 2 months ago.
Do as I say, not as I do.

I've been to both of the Madison Best Buy's in the last few days and they both have tons of the GGC's right now. Just wanted to let people know.

Did they always have them?

I haven't found any at the East side one the few times I was there. I'll have to stop by there and pick up a few.

If you're in Madison and still have a functioning Saturn, someone just dumped off their Saturn collection at PrePlayed on the East side. I picked up a few games that looked good (Duke Nukem, Powerslave, MM8) and left quite a few behind. Some of the games still had the original receipts inside.

I was expecting state street to be insane on Friday but it was more tame than usual even. Everybody seems content to just pay the $5 and go out on Saturday. I didn't see many costumes that were really interesting. There was a good looking Captain Planet, a Quail Man, and a Rowdy Roddy Piper but I didn't see anything else funny/interesting. Didn't even feel the need to take any pictures. There were about 100 Duke Lacrosse players and about 100 Borats walking around. All the girls were dressed up as ho's like always.

Most of my friends just went to the library to study last night...I probably should have too it wasn't worth the walk over there.

From what I've always seen Saturday seems to be the big night. Especially with all of the insane drunks driving in from out of town.

With the extra hour from daylight savings, it's probably going to be insane tonight.

I doubt we'll get riots and stuff though. Kinda wish I was here for that last year :lol:

saw someone dressed as Freakazoid and a Pee Wee Herman. gonna be out there tonight with a camera for some shots. If I get anything really good, I'll post them here.

The 76th street one was out for a while, but I just got back from there, and they got them in again. I picked up four of them. There's at least ten more. The chick let me put a dollar on each of them, too.

Anyone in Madison camping for Wii? Me and friends will be at the westside WalMart. Since it opens early, if it doesnt work out there we will be moving to BestBuy across the way. We might even have the propane heater going if its really cold out.

I won't be camping, but I'll probably be showing up at a store a few minutes before open to try and acquire one.

Any word as to when the West Madison Wally will be opening?

I hate that store... it's always a disaster area and every customer looks like a zombie.

considered waiting out for a ps3 at one of the BBs. I just know it would be another all nighter like last year, starting around 9PM on thursday, if not earlier.

cept this year I don't know any gamers hardcore enough to go along with it, so I'll probably pass.

Circuit City on the West side of Madison still has 10+ Final Fantasy XII's up by the register. $37.99 until this Saturday.

And yes, you're officially an idiot if you bought it anywhere else this week.

Guitar Hero II was a no go at the East side BB and Target. And most likely the Wal-Mart, I called last weekend and they said it won't be out until the 7th.

Anyone have any luck elsewhere?

Also, anyone find a Wii Kiosk in Madison?

I haven't had a chance to do any running around this week, but I was thinking about trying to run out to Best Buy and Target West after work tomorrow to see if they put it out GHII early.

I was debating taking a walk down to the State Street EB tomorrow as well, but it depends on how cold it is.

I'm thinking of picking up a Wii but there are supposed to be plenty to go around so I'm not gonna camp. Camping a PS3 to sell would be a good idea but I don't want to risk getting ripped on ebay.
