Were are you planning to go? I haven't made up my mind yet but a very good friend of mine and my brother are both willing to camp at outher stores for me so I think I might have some luck.


I was thinking of Wal-Mart in Portage or East Chicago for the midnight launch or BB in Valpo in the morning.

Got back from Sam Goody in College Mall, Bloomington, IN a few hours ago. They started tossing new titles in the bin and doubled the bin's overall size! Here are some of the more memorable titles that they have left...

PS2
Get on Da Mike [Decent Trade-In Fodder, Comes With Microphone I Believe]
Astro Boy (Decent Game for $9)
Street Fighter: Anniversary Collection

XBox
Silent Hill 4: The Room
Counter Strike
OutRun
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (Located in XBox Section)


Xenosaga II seems to be out of stock, along with X-Men Legends (XBox) from the other day. Still some additional quality titles in the bins, though. I don't think there are any Karaoke Revolution games around the store, though. I'll be checking again tomorrow just for Karaoke Revolution so if you happen to see a few copies try and save one for me, if you would be so kind. :D

By the way, Target added more games to its Clearance section and tried hiding the games on the side. There are now around 14 copies of Sprung for $10, 2 copies of Samurai Legend Musashi for $14, 2 copies of OutRun (didn't look at price), 3 copies of Donkey Konga 2 (no bongos) for $17 (crap price), and a few others.

Is the Wal-Mart in Portage doing a midnight release? The reason I ask is that the Portage Wal-Mart isn't a full fledged Super Wal-Mart yet, and it's not open 24 hours.

That wouldn't surprise me one bit. I've seen the same thing happen, when going to different Target stores.

Wow I didn't know there were that many NW Indy CAGS. Welcome all the Newbies.

I live in East Chicago so both are pretty far from me.

Why not try the super kmart in portage. I waited in line for ever for halo 2 @ launch, then I heard kmart had them with no line whatsover.

I know someone at the Super K in Portage and he told me they are getting in 12 systems and are doing a lottery at midnight.

I called and they are not.

MC is one of the options tomorrow since I always go to the TRU there for deals.

Just a little FYI I was going to go to the Schereville Wal-mart and they have a huge line. I'll probably just look around tomorrow. If I find any anywhere I'll post, please do the same.

lol at my Xbox 360 look

Went over to target by the mail at 759am noone in parking lot outside so i went WOW might have a chance. Walk in the doors to the back of the gaming part. 70+ people in the store all had tickets in hand (seems target changed their mind about giving out presell tickets this morning fucking liars last night on the phone said first come first serve ) They ran out of tickets around 6am


so for fun i drove over to best buy at northcrest... once again no line to find out they gave out tickets to people and they was all gone by 4am along with the coupons was gone by 5am

love how best buy kept saying they was getting 300 per store when in fact they only got 30 per store

would of though an xbox 360 would been eaiser to find then the ps2

funny part is i was ripping apart their war of the worlds display at target when someone asked what i was doing i said looking for the book... They do umm thats at Best buy .... DOH!!!!!!!!!!!

im going to hit TRU at 9am for the green tag sale and Best buy right after that to see if they put out any more game coupons (i just wanted the coupons)

Super K in Portage worked out for me! My friends and I got there at about 10:30 last night, they handed out tickets at 11. About ten minutes later they had to re-issue tickets, seems the original roll was defective and repeating numbers... Anyway we all got new numbers then at midnight the drawing started. They had 10 premiums and 7 core systems to hand out. Well my friend got called next to last so I came home with a core system. I know I'll end up paying a hole bunch more when I buy all the crap I need, but oh well, I got one!

man people were PISSED at TRU.... they said they would not do any preorders.. first come first serve. Well it seems the manager felt sorry for the people standing outside at 4-5am in the morning and handed out presale slips to those people... they had around 10-15 xbox system just sitting on the floor but they said they cant sell them cause only the person with the slip could buy them....


also Dont grab the Gamepro Xbox 360 mag in the back of the BB store. IT DOES NOT HAVE THE COUPONS (10 off 30 buck game) I Grabbed 3 thinking it was the mag... I think everyone else did as well cause they only had 4 left


What has to piss more people off , i hope many people didnt go to Best buy to get WAR OF THE WORLDS BEFORE 10am... The workers was telling people the 24.99 deluxe set had that free 200 page book well when i was checking out some manager came and tossed 10 books on each check out telling people these are the free books with the movie... I saw at least 5 -10 people standing in line around 910Am probally thinking that Free book was in the DVD case like the workers was telling people

it looked like a nice book but im not going to pay 15-25 bucks for amovie just for the freee book

I was at that pawn shop in FW near the Munchie/Mad Anthony's yesterday. They had a PSOne for $20, Plat Gamecube for $50. PS2 Broadband adapter for $10, slim PS2's for $100.

It's probably on the EB thread...but the GB Micro just dropped to $89. I got one last night at EB in Glenbrook. I must say I love that system. The screen is way better than my old SP, and I think the new buttons have a better feel.

Haven't been there in a long time, but back in the day there was a pawn shop across from Lake Central High School on 41 in St. John that used to have a lot of good deals and a pretty good selection of games.

That would be Loansum pawn. They never have anything good gamewise since there are 2 gamestops and and EB about 5 miles away. If anyone wants good pawnshop deals in NW IN, check out Pawn King in Portage and Merrillville, EZPawn in Hammond, and maybe Lair's in Portage, but stay away from the Ameripawns and Cash Indiana's, they seem to be the most on the ball regarding games. You can blame me for that Ameripawn part. ;)

also, in portage/hobart on the SE corner of Rt 51 & US 6, there's a little store called Video Palace that you can sometimes find great deals on newer games.

And one more, there's a guy selling games in the Market City flea market in Merrillvile (about 2 blocks south of ridge road on US 55/Cleveland) he's in the back right part of the building and usually has at least a few really good deals

I am going to be in Indianapolis for a couple days on business. When i go on business trips i like checking out the local game stores? Are there any good local ones you guys could tell me about (besides Gamestop's, EB Games and Game Rush's)?

And where to find them?

Mom and pop stores? I don't know too many nor have I heard of places that have good inventory. There's this one video game shop on the West Side near a Best Buy but I can't vouch for them.

If you don't have a Fry's where you normally are, I'd suggest checking that out.

Yeah to be honest there's not many local places around and the ones that are don't have anything more unusual than most EBs/Gamestops. Here's a couple though:

Fun Station on 82nd St
Game World on 82nd St
McVan's in Fishers
And there used to be someplace called House of Games or something over on Washington St.

I know McVan's is probably still there, but I haven't been to any of the others in at least a year so not too sure about them.

Picked up a couple of copies of Feel the Magic and Sprung at Summit City Target for a mere $5 a pop. All the PSP markdowns had already vanished with a deeper markdown, making them $7.50 or so. Snooze you loose it seems.

I have never been to any of those places. Then again, I've always had decent luck at Fry's, Best Buy, CC, or Target.

There's a new place opening in the Marsh plaza at 116th and Allisonville. Not sure if it's open yet, but last time I went by it looked pretty close to ready.

I just got a new lead in the Muncie area.

Ok, now I haven't been there in a few years, so it's hard for me to describe. On the north side of McGalliard, near what used to be the Target/Marsh location where Bethel meets McGalliard. There is an IHOP there now. Go in there and turn left at the first stop sign. Head down that little side street to near Bank One / Chase is. There is a little plaza full of shops. I guess this new gaming store is in there where Subway used to be on the East side.

My brother lives near there...says they're not getting much business, so everything is 30% off right now. He was looking at $51 Gamecubes. I'm not sure how long they'll be open, because apparently they're not enough traffic at that location.

I stopped into that store a few months ago and, from what I saw, a 30% sale would bring prices down to where they should be. It is no wonder they are not getting any business.

Just went to the TRU in Michigan City and they had plenty of the PS2 and DS games for $10. There were slim pickings on GBA, GC, and Xbox.
