Stopped in Buybacks in Beavercreek, pretty much just like the one by the Dayton Mall.

I like Buybacks because they're generally cheap but they have the occasional game/movie that's ludicrously expensive for no apparent reason.


This, it's incredibly hit or miss. The other day I found a Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Collector's Edition for $22 after I had just paid $17.99 for the standard edition at Gamestop. Not only that, Gamestop switched the copy I picked out with some beat-ass copy they had hidden behind the desk. But, I split the difference by picking up a Red Alert 3 for $6.99. Meanwhile, there's a VHS copy of Return of the Living Dead for $56.99.

One thing about them, though, is their standards are so high that I almost never trade there but I also never worry about buying from them, not only the discs but the cases as well. That's something I hugely appreciate, especially with Gamestop's new case-switching tactic.

But, alas, I still can't get over charging $45 for a barebones SNES, even if they're the only SNES in town.

I can think of 3 or 4 other places you can get SNES stuff around town, although all of them are charging something similar. Seeing as they go for about $40 shipped on ebay, craigslist, and other online stores, it's not so bad.

The Ultimate Video Game Connection store is mine :) If anyone from here goes in, you can get an extra 15 percent off any of the used games. Just mention that I (Sara) said you could get a CAG discount (or you can get 15 percent extra in trade, which is obviously good towards anything).

If you are interested in vintage stuff, be sure to ask if you can check out the back :)

It's not bad at all, I have been there a few times and bought some items. Definitely, worth checking out since you're in the area.

Last time I was in there they had a mint Zelda Ocarina of Time in the case. I told one of the employees how me and a buddy used to believe his n64 would break due to how heavy the cartridge was (the thing is like a brick :lol:)They carry just about every game system plus new and used titles for wii, ps3, 360, used blu-rays and HDDVDs too.

They are a cross of a mom and pop store and a gamestop. They are a franchise, so the owner and staff are flexible in what they can do versus a corporate Gamestop. They have over all comparable prices to Gamestop, usually a few bucks cheaper and they also have a discount card like Gamestop. They do have the best sales! Earlier in the year they had a spring sale and it was amazing, they had many brand new 360 and ps3 games for 50% off, I got the TEKKEN 6 limited edition bundle that comes with the fighting stick for like $40 brand new, and this was in early 2010, crazy. Its worth stopping to see when they will have thier next big sale.

The Blockbuster on Airway rd in East Dayton is closing in a couple days. Used DVD's were $3.99 each when i was in there last. Blu-Rays were still overpriced.

Cashlands in East Dayton are giving $5 cash for ANY 360, PS3, and Wii games as well as Blu-Rays. They are also giving $2 for PS2 games and $1 for DVD's.

The Game Haven is doing DVD price drops (finally). We're going down the alphabet and have A's and B's done. Prices now range from .99 to 9.99 with a fair amount on the cheaper end. We're not discontinuing the Buy one get one free sale until price drops are finished. This means that there are plenty of .99 and 2.99 movies that are BOGO to boot.

They are opening ANOTHER Gamestop across the street from the Target by the Dayton Mall. That makes 3 within walking distance of one another - One in the Mall, one beside Target, and now one across the street from Target. I thought it was bad when they had two in the mall, but this is just odd. The guy in the old one beside Target said that they plan to keep them all open.

I don't know if they'll have any grand opening deals, but I think it opens on Thursday.
