V-Stock just took over 3 locations (SC, Mid Rivers, and Chesterfield malls) that Borders abandoned. From what I've heard that's what they do nationwide.

Game Monster is opening its third location apparently, this time in Fenton, as I saw the window display in the store right next to Dierbergs down from the Bluffs when I went to get an oil change at Dobbs/pay electric bill at Dierbergs. I don't think the owner knows what he's getting into since his location has way lower traffic than the BB, Gamestop, WM, and Target just down the street from him.

Fenton Target was out of Avengers 3D Blu-Ray tonight. Anyone know the status in Arnold, South County, or Manchester Target's?

I was wanting the extra disc that came with the Target version, don't care that much about 3D but at that price ...

Also it seems Manchester Gamestop is doing 50/60% extra trade in this weekend.

Trade N Games on Highway 30 in Fenton broke the street date for Pokemon Black and White but the GS manager called Nintendo b/c it cost him preorders (people bought it there on the day before then came in and canceled their GS preorder.) Unrelated but Trade N Games no longer sells new games, just used.

Only "independent" shops that deal in new games I'm aware of are Play N Trade, Slackers, and V-Stock, but since they're small chains they can't afford to piss off a publisher by selling early.

Edit: There's a place called Game Monster in Crystal City & House Springs. Know nothing about them, just see their sticker on some of the used stock at the Fenton GS.


I was working at that GameStop during that time. I don't remember that happening. o.O Hell, we sent people to the TradeNGames if they wanted to sell or buy older gen games. Though I may not have been there that day, I really don't think that happened.

As for Game Monster, I don't know anything about the Crystal City one, but the House Springs one was lacking in all things when I visited last, of course that was a while back, a month or two before the WalMart moved.

My 2nd podcast (POWCast) is with the manager of the Fenton GameStop from Jan. 06-Aug. 11. Contact Malistre on taipow.com if you want verification of that story.

Game Monster is opening a 3rd location, this one in Fenton next to the Dierbergs behind Bread Co, McDonalds, & Dobbs. I'll check them out once they open.

So I went to South County TRU to check out the PC selection for the $10 clearance: only thing to note is one copy left of BF 3 and SW: TOR. They had a BUNCH of Sims 3 expansions and Batman: AC, and a couple of WoW Battlechests. Did end up with a $15 copy of Metro 2033 on XBox though.

Florissant TRU had absolutely nothing. Mid Rivers had about 5 Batman, and maybe 1 Starcraft chest.

There might have been a Starcraft there also, but I couldn't tell b/c the guy only picked up a few of the games from behind the counter when I said no to the first ones and said I was looking for Diablo 3. I was looking from in front of the counter so I couldn't see each spine, but definately no AC, Skyrim, or MW 3 and just the 1 BF 3.

Anyone go to Sunset Hills? I can report on Friday night if needed since it's on my way to play Magic.

Stopped by Sunset hills. Out of SC2, D3 and Skyrim. They had a few (3) copies of Arkham City and maybe one copy of AC:R. They also had some Sims 3 expansions.

I don't know if the register will let you buy it, but South County Walmart (Telegraph Rd.) had both console versions of Dishonored in the case w/ placeholder stickers already in place. This was at midnight.

Don't know if someone tried it, but Dishonored is no longer in the case and the sticker is gone also.

FYI starting tomorrow STL County law states you must be 18 and have a valid state-issued ID (license/state ID card, passport, military ID, etc.) to trade games in, even if for store credit. This is a change as in the past you only needed that for cash.

BB grabs ID when you do trade-ins, as does Target, so I guess this only affects Gamestop for the most part.

GS just never took ID for credit trade-ins outside of the city b/c they didn't have to. BB/Target don't care to have seperate standards for different cities/counties so they just make that part of the default process nationwide. Just wanted to give a heads up that trades may take longer to process at busy stores like Fenton.

Shame it'll be a temporary one. Would be nice to have a permanent MS store in the same two locations as the Apple stores, The Galleria and West County Mall.

Not yet.

Plenty of places in both the Galleria and West County Mall that they could put up roots. Since that's where the Apple stores are also at, it makes a logical sense to me about where they'd go.

I just wish we'd get a Fry's already. MicroCenter is a help, though a Frys blows it out of the water.

So I walked into Target today and they had wii u pre order cards up. I pre ordered a Wii U for some reason. The black version with more memory for 5 bucks. Guy said the pre orders just started at Target on Tuesday and if I pre order I should get one because they only put as many cards out as they are supposed to get in the store. But if you want one and didnt pre order check a Target, I did it across from work in florissant and they had about 10 white ones left and 3 black system pre orders left

Brave Blu-Ray is already $15 at Target this week. Is it cheaper at WM on BF?

Well someone is going with me now so I have to go to Fenton. After the fiasco with the Madden NFL 12 tournament there last year (which I talked about on Checkmate Arcade) I hate going to that store for anything like this where it could be a nightmare if not run properly.

Brave Blu-Ray is already $15 at Target this week. Is it cheaper at WM on BF?


Brave is $8.96 at WM on BF. The DVD/BR BF deals are here: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=331390

Also according to Huffer the STL Target print ads show 1600 MS Points for $10 and not the 3-Month Live cards. Here's hoping I can PM at WM (just want 2-3 cards to cover Rock Band Blitz this week, Dragonborn DLC for Skyrim in 2 weeks, then a third card to cover anything else that would be discounted before Christmas.)
