I pretty much have given up on Gamestop a long time ago... well at least the Northtown location (or locations for now as we got TWO of them across from each other). One time I called looking for the Pelican System Selector Pro and the guy said "yeah we got it." So I go on in but it turns out that he mistook the Gamestop cheapy componet selector for the Pelican one. Easy mistake but his stupidity afterwards is what pissed me off when he claimed that "the Pelican got recalled" after he admitted a moment prior to not knowing the difference between the two.


Northtown area, eh? What city do you live in? I used to live over by that area.

There's a Games 'N Go in Brooklyn Park also. It's a decent place, they have stuff from pretty much all generations. Prices are a bit high though. I don't think this one will be lasting very long as a big new Gamestop moved in down the road just a while ago.

Did anyone here go out early for Black Friday? (I sorta wanted to, but I was out of town earlier today) Maybe I'll do a little shopping tomorrow though.

I went to the BB by Ridgedale on BF. Picked up an iPod nano for my GF w/ a $25 iTunes giftcard for free. I also got the new War of the Worlds DVD, which was supposed to be $14.99, but when I checked my receipt, it rang as $19.99. Would it be possible to go get the $5 do you think?
If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious shit.

I was afraid of that, but they still had the sign up on the display. I'd never be able to convince them of that though.

There's no Gamerush in Minnesota? I read the deal with the automataic $10 off any new game ($49.99) and tried looking for a Gamerush but can't find any. Do we even have one?

If only there would be a good deal in Minnesota, I would love to post it. I was hoping the local Costcos would get in a shipment of Xbox 360s like on the East/West coast, but no such luck. I frequent the pawn shops, EB games, and Toys 'R Us in the area, and there hasn't been anything worth buying or even talking about for a long time.

Yep, I agree. It takes a lot of hunting for us MN CAGers to get a great deal. Also, when the Fuck do we get a Gamerush!?!?

I am tempted to drive up there and check out the store closing sales. That wont be happening for awhile with this damn snow storm!

My cousin lives in Freeport, MN, just north of St Cloud and he was telling me about the Media Play closing. If I lived as close as him, I would be checking there for deals all the time.

Don't bother, there's plenty of other better deals out there right now. Video games are only 10% at this point which means that the $10 off best buy coupon is still a better deal. The DVDs are only 20% off and that doesn't make up for Media Play's already high markup.

Exactly. However it feels pretty sweet whenever I can find a deal. Speaking of which I was at the Northtown Toys R Us last Friday. They had some pretty good deals going on including some good games marked down to $9.99 including "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicals" for the GC and "Atari Retro Collection" for the DS.

I also periodically check the Half Price Books by Northtown at least once a week. Seems like as of lately I always find at least one good deal per visit. Best deal I've gotten is the rare Pink Floyd CD "The Early Singles" which only got released with the ubber leet "Shine On" boxset and a copy of Bucker And Garcia's "Pac-Man Fever" CD.

Speaking of which I think I need to make a stop by over there very soon... :D

Never thought I would see the day that Pink Floyd and Pac-Man Fever would be mentioned in the same breath.

Gotta go to the Maplewood shopping uber urban sprawl this weekend and do the ol' EB -> TRU -> Half-Price Books run. I gotta agree with you guys about the lack of places to purchase cag's, and with the eventual merger and downsizing of the GameStop / EBGames monster, our choices will be further limited. Maybe Best Buy will change their ways and offer more in the way of discounts to bring back the "devil customers". We may purchase games for cheap, but if they kept them cheap, they would probably recover their margin since we would definitely keep the shelves empty! Either that, or hell freezes over.

Don't forget about the Gamestop and that independent video game store over by Noodles and IHOP. I love going out to Maplewood, only I also add Shinders to my trip also to see about comics. So much good stuff right there in that little area. Maybe I'll go out there this weekend when I'm at my parents house.

Meh, don't bother. I was there last weekend and they didn't have squat.

BTW, I keep forgetting to ask. Was it someone from here that got that Valkyrie Profile strategy guide they had there a few months ago? I saw it one day and passed, then that night I looked for it on Ebay and when I came back the next day the guide was gone.

Its hit and miss with that HPB. There has been times when I would go one day and find not a thing yet show up the next day and easily find a few things within a few minutes that weren't there the day before. Then again it depends on what you are looking for too. Me... its usually CDs, DVDs, and (gasp) Laserdiscs.

I almost bought a Jurassic Park Laserdisc there not too long ago. I don't have a Laserdisc player but JP is like a childhood nostalgia thing for me (I think I was about 10 or 11 when it came out).

I almost grabbed that one myself but since it has nothing on it that isn't on the current DVD I passed. Last LD I grabbed there was "Bambi" since it has the sound effect track that is NOT on the DVD release. Worth the $7 I paid for it right there just for that alone. :D

The independent game store by Noodles & Company is Toyriffic - they're pretty good people, and they pay cash (albeit little) for games. They also have virtually every rare game I'm aware of... for a pretty hefty fee. Twice a year they do a half-off sale that's pretty well frequented, but they pull all the systems and rare stuff. Still worth checking out; I'll post it here the next time one comes around.
