Well myself and JJNova are both in the clarksville area. There are a few places in town, but we're limited. As Scorch stated Hastings is a good place, Target and the local pawnshops. Right before Thanksgiving there was a copy of Steel Battalion w/ controller for only $49.99 at the Money Tree Pawn Shop. I thought about getting it, but I don't have the space and the controllers useless except for SB.

Bad thing is that you might get the discount, but if for some reason it didn't work you don't get a refund. Money Tree seems to check things thoroughly before accepting them, but there are so many switches and buttons on that damn controller that I would't take a chance on it.

I live in Knoxville/Farragut and there are a few good places around here. There is a place called Games and Movies 4 Sale in Farragut where all CDs are $3.99 and the game prices are really random. I got The Suffering there for $4.99 but Enter The Matrix was $40. Game Haven in the Toys R Us parking lot is ok for old games but they aren't open on Saturdays which is when I usually go out.

In my experience.

Knoxville has a number of places that I visit when I'm in town: There are countless EBs and Gamestops (Turkey Creek has both, West Town and Knoxville Center have both, and there are standalone stores scattered everywhere). Charlie's Pawn on Kingston Pike has some decent stuff every once in a while - I've grabbed KOTOR2 for $10 there, and Intelligent Qube for $3 (believe me, I was happy). Game Haven is generally way too overpriced for my tastes. McKay's is the big one, though. They're on Papermill Drive, near the exit, and have a huge selection of used games, books, and movies. I've spent a lot of cash and trade-in there, you have no idea. Hours can be spent here. Awesome place.

Nashville is also good. Again, there are plenty of EBs and Gamestops, four or five Targets for a good selection of clearance stuff, etc. The Great Escape is the big used-media store here, and they've got two - one downtown, one up north in Madison. Their prices are a little wacky, but chances are you'll go home with something. I'm still looking for a decent pawnshop in the area.

Memphis... Really, all it has is the EBs and Gamestops. The few specialist stores in the area have mostly closed down - there was this place called Boomerang's over on Mount Moriah, and another store in an old house on Summer Avenue, but I don't think they're still around. Memphis is pretty depressing on the whole.

Jackson, between Memphis and Nashville, is even more depressing. I typically cleaned up whenever they had sales or clearances at any stores in the area, because I was the only CAG there. The GameCrazy 3-for-$15 sale? Oh, god. Even so, the one specialist store they had closed down, partly due to the owner having no clue what he was doing. I'm glad I live in Nashville now.

When in Murfreesboro, I also like to check out the Digital Planets, but no one's ever mentioned them here. Hmm.

I've never been to the one downtown, but i've visited the one in north Madison for years. I actually picked up Snatcher on Sega CD there for $10 a few years back, back when the Sega CD was new. They're INSANE on action figure prices (I went through a period where I collected Mcfarlane's Movie Maniacs line), but they're usually decently priced on games.

When in Murfreesboro, I also like to check out the Digital Planets, but no one's ever mentioned them here. Hmm.


..Digital Planet? That's it? That's the only place you go? Cripes, whenever you're in town, get Guessed or myself to show you the other side of town - Hastings, Rhino (and their INSANE trade-in deals - Rhino has a ton of rare games, nothing over $49.99) and Media ReRun.. Media ReRun is awesome. Digital Planet's alright, I guess. I've found one or two good deals there, but the prices are so wonky. I went the other day and picked up two Forzas and looked at the back, one was priced $42.99 and one was $22.99. Just little things like that annoy me. I guess i'm still kinda bitter that they caused the CD Warehouse around the corner to go out of business.

I saw a DDR Mario Mix in the Smyrna Wal-Mart today, it was sitting next to the XBox games in the accessories section, on top of some steering wheels and whatnot. It's probably still there.

I have a favor to ask CAG's in the Nashville area. I went to the Hollywood Video on Gallatin, in front of Great Escape, and purchased some games; 4 $9.99 games for $20. Well I got all the way back here to Clarksville and one of the games was not in its case, Auto Modelista; I know I should have checked before driving away, but I forgot. Anyways, I was wondering if someone could go pick up the copy they have on hold and mail it to me. I will paypal you for s/h (media mail). Also I will have to call the store to see if someone else is able to pick it up due to they might want verification/receipt. The reason I am asking is because Friday I am leaving to go to Ft. Worth and probably won't make it to Nashville until mid January. If you can help I'd appreciate it, but if not it ain't no biggie, thanks.

Wow i'm really starting to hate Rhinos. I don't know about other stores but the one in Murfreesboro is horrible. Do you really have to cuss every two minutes infront of children? They throw the games at you whenever they don't feel like working. And the other day I was asked to buy something from another store because they didnt feel like digging it out of the back.

I think we'd have to worry about people of fatwallet more. When I went to the $5 CC sale, there were tons of people with print outs from fatwallet hoarding games. I mean people with 25+ games in a cart... bastards.

I hit the CC in Antioch the day after the CC sale leaked, I was able to get decent stuff. Ran into Guessed there, actually. I've only ran into one FW guy, and that was at the 90% sale off at TRU. I had gotten what I wanted earlier in the day (Fatal Frame on XB for $4, yay! also found a third party PS1 screen for $5) and there was this guy looking through stuff.. I asked if he's looking for anything specific because I had a few games in my hand, and he said no thanks.. I asked where he heard about this sale, he said FW, and that's what he does for a living, drives around, hoardes, sells the shit on ebay.. said he had already hit Antioch and Franklin.. needless to say, I said nothing and walked away.

Hopefully there won't be many FW people out there, there's only like.. four games I want.

I think the only thing i'm gunning for is Area 51.. the others I want are FF 1&2 DOS, RE4, Unreal Championship 2, Wrestlemania 21, Conker and Pariah. But all of those take a back seat to Area 51, i've been wanting that game since April, it's awesome.

There's quite a few I'm wanting at the TRU sale, but I refuse to buy in advance and then price match, so there probably won't be much left. But, ah well, I did just get DW8 for $30 from gamecrazy, so i'll live if I strike out at TRU. And yes, there is a special place in hell for the members of fatwallet, or even (much) worse, someone that uses this site for that.

I work in Cool Springs, so I'll be checking out the TRU there in the morning - probably not until around 10am or so, though. I'm hoping to pick up Klonoa 2 for GBA, DDR Extreme, Romance of the Three Kingdoms X (the big one for me), and RE4 for Gamecube (the next big one). Maybe Killzone (hey, $10 is probably worth it). So, if you find any extras...

Ha, I was through there the other day. I think you guys only have one RE4. You guys have a ton of Area 51.. I might head out and grab one.

The Murfreesboro, TN store (TRU) still had plenty of Psychonauts (PS2), Final Fantasy 1&2 DOS, and Golden Sun: TLA. There was also a ton of Doom 3 and a few Conkers left. No DDS, No Tekken 5, No Pikmin 2, No RE4, No Pirates, No Zelda: 4S.

Another Nashville CAG checking in.

karmapolice - just came from the Bellevue TRU and they had a dozen copies of Doom3.

Everything on the TRU list seems to ring up 9.98 at all Nashville stores. I even got a couple of the Jedi Hunter controllers for free. Great deal - buy a $9.98 game and get a free controller.

The FW people bug me too. The local CC clerks hate them too. They know they are reselling everything on eBay and not giving others a chance to pick up a deal.

They also have a ton of Doom 3's. There's 3 Wrestlemania 21's left in the case, and there's a lot of GunGriffon.
