I goto the slackers in Glen Carbon/Edwardsville IL and some times the O'Fallen IL one. From what I was told they might close the one in Glen Carbon/edwardsville to make the walmart larger. I went in the other day to see if they had the evil dead books of the dead dvds. I can usually find hard to find things at them for less then what they would be on ebay. I saw a shit load of comics there though. So I don't know when they started to sell them. I would rather they kept selling Sega stuff then the comics.

If anyone is desparate for a Wii, the TRU in Columbia (exit 124 off I70) has them. I was there around 5 tonight and the guy said they just opened a fresh box of them. I don't know how many that means they have but it's likely they'll still have some tomorrow (Monday).

First Cash Pawn (I think that's the name) right of Lindbergh and 270 has PS2 systems for $65. Slim and Fat. Both are the same price.

I went there about a month ago. Selection was very limited. That might have changed by now though. They pricematch on everything though, so that's a plus. At least I was told they did.

Am I crazy to think that used to be an EB store? I remember there used to be an EB store around that part of Manchester before the merger, and the GS store in the shopping plaza with the defunct CompUSA caused it to close after the merger.

If it's what I'm thinking of next to the tire store and Becky's carpet store then you are correct. That EB actually stayed open for about 1 year after the merger, then boom, it was gone on a Monday without any warning. It was the closest store to work and I always made my purchases there as I could get them during lunch. Bought my PSP (which I sold to someone in Feb.) on launch weekend there.

The manager at that EB got demoted I think to asst. manager at the Gamestop that you mentioned by Hollywood Video and was going through hundreds of receipts transfering pre-orders into that stores system since at the time EB/Gamestop systems were not compatible.

As far as I remember there was never an EB in there. There was an EB just on the other side of 141 that closed awhile ago.

Well did anyone or anyone you know brave the 8 inches of snow to get in line for a Wii today?

Also who's going to Video Games Live concert in January? Maybe we could do a CAG STL group meetup?

I went to something like this about 2 yrs ago, and it sucked big time. Cost $10 or $20 to get in and then the prices weren't even good. No clue if this is the same thing though.

If any of you out there are looking for 60GB PS3's, I ran into a few of them at the Sam's Club on Lemay Ferry in South County. There looked like somewhere between 3-6 of them, listed as a "bundle" with Motorstorm for $549.99. Hardly a deal, of course, though it's the first place I've seen any 60GB PS3's in months.

They also had a few Xbox 360 Wireless wheel sets, the new one without the overheat issue, listed as a "Seasonal Item" (aka once they're gone, they're gone), for ~$86-$87. I picked one up, mainly since I think this is as cheap as it'll get for that wheel. This is the new one, which doesn't come with PGR3, though comes with the demo version of Forza 2.

I was told by a friend that there exists another Software Plus location. The one on Olive closed down :cry:

Anyone know anything about it?


If I'm not mistaken there is a Software Plus out here in St. Charles near Jungerman and McClay road. It's in one of those areas of stores on the south side of Jungerman before you get to McClay.

Last time I saw the GGC's at the South County store, they were sitting in the CD racks on the endcaps for the CD. The area facing the registers where the put some of the "hot sellers" and "new releases".


What does GGC stand for? I'm not familar with it.

Just in case you missed it, the chesterfield valley store also moved to the Mall a month or two ago.


Yea they had to move to Chesterfield Mall because they lost their lease because Wal-Mart is expanding in the Chesterfield Valley to become a Super Center. There were like 4-5 stores that were kicked out/moved east so Wal-Mart could expand.

How many of you are going to end up going? Maybe some of us could meet at this event and get to know each other if enough people are going.

GGC= Gamer's Gift Card. It was a special gift certificate Best Buy had in their video game section that had on the back of it a $5 off coupon of any video game item that cost $20 or more. BB had these for a couple of years then discontinued them early last year.

In regards to Video Games Live, unless someone else has gotten tickets and not posted yet, I am the only CAG who has bought tickets.

Don't know if it is still available (moved from STL to KC yesterday), but there is a listing on craigslist that says something like PS2 system and a bunch of PS1 games for $75. Final Fantasy VII and Silent Hill were listed.

If anyone knows someone looking for a 360 Holiday bundle with the free games, as of yesterday, two places by me still had them. Game On at Dougherty Ferry and Big Bend and the Game Crazy out at Gravois Bluffs off 141 in Fenton each had one Elite left with the free games. I don't know whether they're Falcons or not though.

For anyone on the Illinois side, the new Gamestop out by Lowes and Walmart off Green Mount is having a B2G1 free sale right now. Have no clue how long it lasts, but i got stuff for free this morning.

This isn't the one by Target off Green Mount. Get off 64 and head past the Target shopping area down Green Mount. It is probably about 3 miles down the road. You will see the Lowes right off of Green Mount.


Haha I work there.

The Des Peres/Manchester WM on Manchester road was a bust, they were normal price when I checked a while back.

I'm going to the South County/Telegraph WM to pick up something that was shipped via Site-To-Store, I'll check them there and see what I find.

The Telegraph WM didn't have any of the point bundles, though they did have the Classic Controller + sleeve kits, which rung up for $24.99. :cry:
