Try Meijer. I got mine in Lansing and I've seen them at 3 others in the detroit area in the last 2 weeks.

I got mine at the EB Games across from the Westland Mall last Thursday, and saw some at the Target in Canton a few days ago.

They're around, it's just a right place at the right time thing.

I'm telling you, try Meijer. Talk up the guy in the games department and tell him to give you a call or something when they get a shipment in. Slip him a 20 if you need it that badly and I'm sure you'll get a call on the next delivery. When Andy Jackson talks, minimum wage workers listen.

Here's a scan for a 20% off at Gamestop (one specific store only). The EB at Lakeside Mall is closing on 1/25 (no, I didn't see any giant clearance/going out of business sales) and on the counter is a stack of these...it's nothing special, just a b&w photocopied printout. Gives you 20% off at the Gamestop in Shelby (45159 Market St in Shelby Township).

Link

EXPIRES 2/8/07 - Not valid on hardware.

Sorry to see the Lakeside store go, that area of the mall being a game store has been there in one form or another as long as I've lived in Rochester (1990) and probably longer. I guess it doesn't surprise me, almost everything surrounding it has been totally overhauled, and that store was the one holdout. Hell, I remember when that giant food court that's next to it was a giant arcade (Tilt)....that place was the SHIT. Two floors of games at a time when Gameworks wasn't even yet a twinkle in some corporate prick's eye.

Dropped $25 there for a couple used Gamecube games, since I bought a Wii but skipped the Gamecube and I'm catching up.


I'm guessing you're a Wayne Stater? Specs Howard tends to put people everywhere else but Detroit.


Hah, yep. I must have been offered two or three mysterious "traffic jobs in North Carolina" or something similar, but they didn't do dick to help me get something in Detroit - and I graduated from there with honors, it's not like I had shitty grades or anything.

I was at WJR for a little over a year around 2001-2002 (I fortunately knew someone who did sports there and they got me into the newsroom, Specs' placement had nothing to do with it), but they laid off several younger employees due to cutbacks, and that meant I was done there. Really disappointing since everyone from the news director to the sports staff liked me, but what can you do.

I know...way off topic (and a several month old post), but sometimes, I do kinda miss radio...

Me too, but it's too time consuming and frustrating to try to break in in Detroit. I've got shit I need to pay for, I can't risk everything on a bunch of "maybe" opportunities. I'm reasonably content with what I'm doing now, so it never really bothers me too much.

If anyone cares - There are 5 copies of Gunpey (DS) in the Brighton, MI Target for $14.98.

I've never even heard of this game nor seen it on the shelves until Cheapy mentioned it in last week's CAGcast. I thought it was an import only title.

No, Im a rare exception..Im a Specs Grad. They told me outright that id have to move out of state or start in a cornfield radio station to start off. I didnt want to do that so I pushed on locally..I graduated 2 days before Christmas '96 and landed that Job in March of '97. My first radio job was a small country station in Ann Arbor then I was hired in to What I do now since about 1997.



Thats too bad about the Lakeside EB closing...I had no idea. Funny thing is. During 2001 late 2002 I took a break from Radio and worked at that Very EB as the Assistant Manager. I quit and resumed in Broadcasting immediately..Was an interesting little Hiatus to say the least.

I just recently found STEAMBOT CHRONICLES and STREETFIGHTER EX2 new and sealed at the Gamerush on Rochester Rd with a used sticker on them. They had a B2G1F so I got the one 'real' used copy free. That was pretty cool.

It does make sense though. The corner of Hall Rd and Schoener makes me wonder what is wrong with Gamestop/EB... With the EB mall store in place, there is a EB or gamestop at every corner of that intersection.
One by target, one by Sportcard Central, the one in the mall, and one by Circuit City. It's just stupid. Then they go and do the exact same thing over at Gratiot and Masonic... an EB by Coldstone, and Gamestop by the Border's express, and then one in the mall. Unless they're selling tons of franchises, the corporation just seems hugely stupid to put that many storefronts so close together.

Yo

I found Twisted Metal and a bazillion copies of Wipeout for PSP on clearance at Target for $4.98, and Viewtiful Joe DS for the same price. Wipeout was at both Midland and Saginaw Target stores. You know, if you have a PSP. Also one copy of Killer7 for GC for $2.97. FYI.

Nice. I have seen a few gems there myself (it's less than 5 minutes from my house).

I've been seeing Wiis once in a while (Wal-Mart over by the Silverdome, Circuit City off of John R in Troy)...should only be another two or three weeks before you can find them most places, I'd assume.

Yeah, Im seeing accessories like crazy now. Remotes, Nunchuks, classic controllers are popping up. I was at the TARGET in Sterling Heights last night (Van dyke at 16 mile) and they had plenty of those accessories.

I also overheard the clerks talking and they have alot of Wii's in the Back room and arent allowed to sell them until this Sunday. (Feb 11th)

If anyone is still interested in one of these, the Meijer at 13 and John R. in Madison Heights has a copy of Final Fantasy with the PS2 HDD marked down to $50. Not sure what these have been running, I'm not in the market for one, just a random sighting. Just the one copy, I believe, at 7:30 this evening.

If you can still find them at KMART. You can pick them up for $23-$25.00. I found one buried in a display case In Richmond at 32 mile and Gratiot for that much. The price still said $99.99.

I saw one at the SEARS Lakeside store for $49.99 too, but that was a while ago in the Fall.
