Thought I'd go ahead and create a topic for Minnesota. As usual, be sure to include specific info such as the store's location when posting a deal (and of course, information about the deal itself). Enjoy! :)

I'm pretty sure Minnesotas best deal is any involving moving vans... :wall:

Well, this is hardly a deal, but the Owatonna GameStop store has Musashi Samurai Legend new for $20, and a used copy of Persona 2 for $27.99 I believe. I don't know if it's the re-print version though.

Damn, I didn't know that :lol:

I always go to the Roseville or Maplewood Gamestops, but I'll definitely have to drop by the Midway one. Thanks for the info!

Yay, Minnesota love... too bad there aren't many niche gamestores around here. I'll post if I see anything.

Roseville GS suck IMO there just isn't anything. The Maplewood one is fine... I've been there just once though. But man that place is far and the CC there seem so.. secluded? I just think that whole area is. I love the GameCrazy in Maplewood. I got my DC there and the keyboards just in the summer.

Anyone been to Joko? It's around Midway. I know it is a kind of "joke", but the place will reopen Oct 21.. well that place isn't that great, but I remember I got a Bujingai for $20 (from $24.00 down to $20). The cover was printed and no manual, but all I really wanted is the game. I'm wondering how management will be like and etc.

I know. I used to go to this place in Mounds View, Big 10 Video, and right next to it, there would be a different game store every year. One time it was Game Depot, another time it was Gamer X. The stores were never busy at all, which explains why they all went out of business.

Gotta love the huge retailers taking over media sales. At least the new EP Best Buy opens on the 21st. Then I don't have to go to Richfield to sell my soul.

Do you guys know if they will have a grand opening sale?

Speaking of huge retailers taking over the little guys, are there any Funco's left in the Twin Cities? I just moved back to the Cities, but back in the 90's I remember a Funco in Roseville (which is now a GS, which as another poster mentioned, sucks monkey balls).

I did hit the Half Price Books in St. Paul (Highland) and in Maplewood and there were a few decent titles for the PC. Additionally, saw some good game guides but I don't collect those.

The last Funco left I knew about was on the 3rd floor of MoA. Of course that has long since been turned into an EB.

Ummm....no. There never was or has been a Funco on the 3rd floor of the MoA. There was one on 2nd, and that was turned into a GameStop like five or six years ago. Since then, the EBX, EB and both 1st and 2nd floor GameStops all closed and there is only a brand new GameStop up on 3rd left in that mall anymore.
End of line.

Really? I didn't think that the Gamestop on the first floor closed...then again, I haven't been to MoA lately.

The first floor gamestop closed a few months ago. It is now one of those Minnesota sweatshirt stores.

As for the EP BB grand opening, I saw a flyer in my STrib today with some deals. The only thing of note was a $15 giftcard for any combined purchase of $75 worth of CDs, DVDs and games. All the other stuff was meh.

Daunte will throw for 4 ints and 0 TDs.

Brett has been smokin' the last 2 games (well last 1.5). I don't think there's anything left in the Vikes tank.

BTW, Bryant McKinnie is signing autographs at the BB on Saturday.

I'm assuming EP = Eden Prairie. Sorry, I just hadn't heard of this grand opening. Anyone know a date/dates for this event? Thanks!

P.S. People are still wasting their time with the Vikings? Move on to the Wild people. ;)

I went to the GS at MOA and it is nicer/better looking than its previous locations.

BTW... this is off topic.. ish.. does anyone know that game.. that someone posted on the Video game deals.. or something. It was an anime style game and a side shooter. It's like this witch girl shooting bubbles and you get special weapons and it shoots bubbles in different ways..

So...who's gonna hit TRU on Sunday (tomorrow)?

I live over by Roseville - the nearest TRU is in Maplewood though I've never been there. Which is the best TRU (in terms of game selection in the TC)?

BTW...Go Wild.

Yea I wanted to use that as an example, but this was kinda "home brewed", but eh worth a try to ask.

I think Burnsville has a good game selection? I haven't gone to one in so long.. and not planning to.. for a while..

Man, I went to the TRU in St. Cloud today hoping to snag GTA:SA for Xbox, Shadow of the Colossus, and either RE4 or Soul Calibur III but they had none of the above in stock, nor anything good for that matter. The TRU here is horrible.

Holy crap there's another St. Cloud CAGer?!?!? I can't believe it.

LOL, that's the closest TRU to my parents house where I stay on the weekends when I'm in the cities to work.

Two posts in a row of people that live by me, funky.

Just great...

I live in Coon Rapids (right next to Blaine). Now I know there are three of us fighting for the same games in the same store.
