I hit Target:

On the discount encap near the pet supplies, they have a few copies of "Feel the Magic: XY XX" for $10. They also had two copies of Darkstalkers for PSP for $15.

The video games endcap had a few GC titles for $15 (Winnie the Pooh, and some Greatest Hits type stuff, nothing great) There were more copies of "Feel the Magic" there as well.

The bin at KB Glenbrook was wiped out, 4 or 5 Xbox sports titles left.

EB in the mall looks like they marked down some GBA games to clearance, put a bunch of carts into the $9.99 - $15.99 range. They're probably listed in the that thread on the main part of the messageboard.




KB had a bin ??? when i went there the first day they only had a small table with junk on it

That's always what I see at EB, with games that are still overpriced. That's why, I stopped bothering going in there.

I usually check out the EB at JP, I used to work there nights after my day job...that was about 2 yrs ago, right after they opened. Sherri is the manager there. She's normally pretty good. She's expressed some interest about posting deals on here, but she's not so computer savvy. Of course the company sets the prices, so sometimes it's good deals, and sometimes it sucks. I get the Edge card for $5 and tend to haunt the used bins and GBA stuff.

Today's find -I scored a MS Sidewinder stick for $1.50 at Goodwill.
Goodwill on Jefferson had:
Metroid Prime for $5 and $10, new (yes two different prices).
A Wingman stick for $15.
Some Yugioh game and Tron2.0 for GBA for $5 each.
They had a used copy of Sims2 PC, I think it was $10.
A copy of...um...I can't remember the name...horror survival game about kids in a high school...for $4.50, used.

A handful of Colecovision and Atari carts, and 1 stray Tengen NES title for $0.50 to $3.00.
The games are all up front in the case or a bin.

They also had an accessory pack and some charging stand/attachable speakers for PSP for $15 each, on a shelf in the front.

WalMart has some 3pk of racing games for $10, near the games case on an endcap, It was Ford Racing 3 and two other titles I wasn't familiar with...for PSP.

Yup, I definitely know Sherri. I saw her right around when EB opened and I still see her today. I remember that EB getting a used copy of Gitaroo Man and Valkyrie Profile in, when they first opened (for a good price), and I bought them. I see her just about everytime I got to EB and I've bought multiple games from her. I believe she recognizes me. When there was a deal to trade in three games, and get GT4 for free, I was the one who asked her about the deal, and she didn't know. I ended up bringing her a receipt from some CAG member printed off, then she tested to see if the deal worked, and it did. She was pretty surprised too.

I donate stuff to Goodwill all the time, but I never actually went in there. Maybe I should, when I go back home over Thanksgiving break.

Hah. Yeah, if you find a weird deal like that, it'll usually work. EB is really weird about how they distribute the news of new promos...they'll be running 3 or 4 at a time and they overlap. They send all the messages to the stores where they print from e-mail to this log book...so it's really easy to miss one of them when it comes across. (dumb...e-mail only available as hard copy)

As for Goodwill, They get games from Target when they go off discount there. Target dumps them to Goodwill after they leave the endcap discount. There's a thread on the main page about it.

Hey you Bloomington guys... is there any good places to snoop around at the 3rd St. Exit coming off of 37? I usually meet my business partner there and then we head up to the main office in Indy from there. I know I have to go that way Monday so I thought I might ask.

After that... for the rest of the month, I'm stuck at the Paoli CVS doing Part D stuff :(

For any Indianapolis folk, the Target on Southport ususally has some good clearance stuff. It's never by the video games, though, always down by the CD players and stuff. I saw Darkstalkers PSP there for $15 a couple days ago. I passed, as I was hoping to find Mercury on the cheap instead...

I wish I could help but the only major game store chains in the area are pretty much...well, Best Buy and EBGames further down 3rd Street where 45 cuts across 3rd. I don't think there are any independent stores down in the direction you normally head but I'm still sort of new here and I tend to mostly spend my time around the College Mall area (lack of car = lack of adventure).

If I happen to hear anything in particular or if I end up walking down that way soon (I may hit the downtown Bloomington area tomorrow after class. Yes, class on Saturday...), I'll let you know if I find anything and if it's feasible to visit.

Target Update - This is the one at Glenbrook. Was in there this morning.

On the clearance isle down past the CD's near pet supplies:
2 x Darkstalkers PSP - $15
2 or 3 copies of Feel the Magic & Ping Pals for DS - $10
1 copy Final Fantasy: Tatics for GBA -$12.99 (I think...maybe 14)

On the games endcap, plenty of copies of Sprung, Ping Pals, and Feel the Magic all for $10.

If I had a PSP, I'd buy Darkstalkers in an instant. The Glenbrook Target normally doesn't have as many clearance games, compared to the one on Maplecrest IMO (when I'm up on the side of town).

Bloomington, IN Target had two copies of Darkstalkers for $15 in stock as of Monday, November 7.

Warning: They moved the Clearance section again for the second time in the past week. It's now on the end of aisle section as you head from Games over towards Food on the other side of the store. Just keep your eyes focused on the right hand side, right after the end of aisle display for the cheap crap musical instruments.

The local Family Video here in Evansville have had a great sale on for the past couple of weeks. They are selling their ex-rental games at $9.99 each. (which isn't bad considering the store has only been open a couple of months, so the condition of the games are pretty good)

I grabbed Splinter Cell Chaos Theory and Gran Turismo 4. They also had Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban, Call Of Duty Finest Hour, Dead To Rights II, Goldeneye Rogue Agent, Brothers In Arms (first one) and a few other good games for the PS2.

I noticed they also had Halo 2, NFSU2 and Merceneries for X-Box and Picmin 2 for the Cube. (I don't own those systems, so I can't say if they had more)

Unfortunately they put the sale on their big sign on the main road so a lot of the titles could be gone now. Just thought I would pass on the info

Yeah, there really isn't anything here beyond the standard chain stores. The only luck you might have is visiting a few of the local pawn shops in the area.

I may swing past Family Video off on Goshen. It's just a few miles from my work...so I can make the rounds at lunch.

Hey, anyone on here have a Gamecube for sale? I'm looking for one cheap for my brother for Christmas. He sold his xbox and has no console...poor fella.

Target near glenbrook has some games hidden on an endcap.
Face the electronics counter from the front, turn left, head to the wall, they're on the 2nd cap on the left. They have Half-Life 2, several PSP games, and a couple of misc GC games all for half off discount price.

I didn't have my pda so I didn't catch all the prices. I think the PSP stuff was marked 18.99 and would be half off that. I think HL2 was 26.

The Sam Goody in College Mall in Bloomington had a ton of $9 games there earlier this week. Ones I remember:

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection (PS2)
Astro Boy Omega Factor
Boktai
Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb (Xbox)
Counter-Strike
Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 (Think I got the last one though)

There were many others though.

You Fort Wayne guys need to get up to Kendallville and check out the Kendallville Pawn Shop. It's right on main street, just north of the railroad tracks. They've got tons of games and lots of cheap systems too. Definitely worth the 30 min drive.

And you lafayette guys, don't forget the OTHER Gamerush in town (south of Purdue campus) I stop in there every now and then and always seem to find good stuff.

As far as game eXchange, they're a great store, don't forget that they have a Kokomo location too (also a game crazy and EB down there too).

Yes, they had a quality selection, they did! I grabbed a copy of Xenosaga 2 myself and Astro Boy. I'm heading back over there in a few hours to check the rest of the stock.

If anybody really, really wants I'll make a list of what they have. Just specify what titles you would like or what system and I'll list like there's no tomorrow.

Same here. $10 is the perfect price point! Last time I was there (I think around Thursday) they had another three copies, I believe, but I don't know if there are any more over there. I'm planning on heading over in about...ugh...30 minutes when I'm done folding this laundry.
