Brentwood Best Buy will be hosting the area's "Nintendo Smash-Fest" on June 11th and June 14th. They will have a demo of Super Smash Bros for Wii U and if you pre-order during the event you'll get some collectible "gold coin" and $5 in rewards points when you pick up the game on release.

This should be exciting, I'll be there this year!

 

I was at the E3 event last year at this Best Buy and it was SWAMPED with people (they all brought their 3ds systems for multiplayer in line), but after an hour or so of waiting I got to play Mario Kart 8 - 11 months before it's eventual release. Was pretty damn cool...

Has anybody tried trading in games at the Galleria Microsoft store? Wondering how easy the trade games for $10 each promo was.

I went today and it took about 30 minutes. Guy knew what he was doing, it just takes awhile signing and having to initial everything. Put $10 towards Sunset Overdrive. He acted like I couldn't bring 5 more games in so I don't want to test it tomorrow.

The Vintage Stock in Chesterfield Mall has 2 Black Retron 5s in stock for the MSRP of $140. I was tempted, but I would prefer to get a gray one.

 

Edit: The V-Stock in South County has a black Retron 5 too.

Was any STL CAGs able to get a ticket to Sony's E3 Press Conference being aired at the movie theater in Fenton? I'm on the wait list, but not sure if I wanna go just for the off chance that I'm able to sneak in.


I got a regular ticket. Should have gone even if on wait list as theatre was only 3/4 full after seating all the wait list folks.

Anyone else have any luck trading in 360 Slims today?  I traded my 2 in at the South County store at about 11:15 and it worked.  I would have posted this earlier, but I didn't have time.  

 

I bought the last 360E(I think that is the newest One-looking model) they had and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the remaining $400 I have on a giftcard.  

 

This was a better deal that the Microsoft Store $10 minimum trade-in deal.

Bodach's has a bunch of boxes NES, SNES, & N64 games, including a factory sealed Tetris 2 NES, but since he hates the Internet he never posts any of them on Facebook or Craigslist or sells on EBay.

Its not great deals but costco has ps4's with 1 year of plus and an extra controller for 489, maybe even after the 15 in the ads but if you are executive you get 2% cadh back also. Xbone's are 384 without kinect. Im still in no hurry for a new console but in case you're interested they are there

Yeah im sure there are better deals. Costco does have an excellent return policy which may make it close. Im still not even close to buying a new console. It will be a long time before i do. I just rarely have time to play more than Hearthstone anymore. It will take a mass effect or dead space to get me to budge at this point

Yeah i live within a mile of the mills maybe 5 miles from ferguson. Mills closed last night after a mob showed up. Things have been quiet on my mail route in Florissant all day the last 2 days though. I carry in old town up the main street so there probably wont be much craziness there which i am thankful for

Stay safe St Louis CAGs... I had to stop to get gas on my way home from work and some guy was shooting down the street off Broadway and Grand with an AK-47. I have a feeling that tonight is going to be a long night.

Im close in hazelwood to the hell, work closer in florissant. We were heading back from fast eddies sunday and all the famous people were speaking at a church off 270 by flo valley and imswear there were 2000+ cars lined up both sides of pershall rd in both directions. I havent ever seen that many cars jammed into one spot in my life.

Its definately crazy and with another shooting today, i cant imagine its going to calm down anytime soon. Just worried about when they are done trashing ferguson, they might head my way next

Glad I'm on the Illinois side.  I have friends over in Missouri.  One is over by the Botanical Gardens, another off of 270 and the other one I forgot where she is at.  Reddit has live feeds of whats going on.

Yeah I worked a bunch of extra hours last week at my job in the loop because my boss was worried after they hit Ferguson they would start heading to the Loop. Especially when I work at a store with fitted hats and Cardinals apparel.
