This might be a a little too far from you guys that live in DC/maryland, but I use to live in Northern VA, near Potomac Mills. There is a pawn shop, called Pawn USA. I went there for years and they have alot of games from various systems. The prices are good and the staff is friendly. Just thought I mention it...

check out circuit city in gaithersburg next to the mva.. I found resident evil 0 marked for 49.99 but rings 9.96. there are other games that can be bought cheaper if you knw the prices. everything in that store is a mess but u can come out ahead if you look and knw the prices.


Do they have a price scanner in store that you can check $ on or do you just have to go to the register and hope for the best, ala Russian Roulette?

As an aside, about a month ago I checked the bargain bucket at EB in Montgomery mall, and snagged ESPN college hoops for $8. Lots o' oldie/moldies, but not too shabby.

EB games in montgomery mall, surprised it is still there...havent been in there in over a year, rude/poorly informed employees everytime. Always this one spindly black guy with bad teeth in there......always kinda rude, wonder what there hiring criteria are......do you know pacman? you do? good...your hired.

On the flipside, the EB games on shady grove road, fallsgrove branch, i believe, has very cool employees, dont give a hassle when you want to see other copies of used games (if the first is hosed up).....just goes right down and gets them and helps. Pretty much the only eb I ever go to now.

Used to live on muddy branch road in gaithersburg, but now live in frederick....lots of good places to check out if you know your way around.

Geez, the Gaithersburg and CAG connection is growing. Seems like there are a ton of us in this area. I never thought of this being a vg friendly area. Figures considering the fact that this whole area is over-populated.

you have to knw the prices and the other thing is get a print out of the markdowns in the videogamedeal thread from before. because i saw a lot of old titles that should go for cheap.

I haven't found anything at KB. I've been to the now defunct one in Frederick and the one in Lakeforest Mall....I was late to the party this time around, so the KBs may have been ravaged earlier....on the KB website there is mention of a KB in Rockville, but I have no idea where it is. I'm sure that being that it is Rockville that it was pillaged the weekend of BF.

The KB in Dulles Towncenter is doing the B1G1 but the selection is fairly crumbtastic. I did see a few copies of Mario Kart DS, but that was about it.

There's nothing at the KB at Ballston. They literally had one small case of videogames (for all systems) and that case wasn't even full. They either got ransacked or sent all the games away. The only things I saw of interest were some DS games (Need for Speed, Nintendogs, Frogger, Harry Potter). All the console and GBA games were cheap low budget stuff to begin with that no one wants. Save yourself the trip and the parking money.

Get 'em while they're hot! 98 cent 2-pack Star Wars PS2 controllers at the Columbia, MD TRU! The guy has to get them from the R-zone stock room.

There should still be some left, but you may want to call beforehand. They've been in the back room, so they haven't *all* been snatched up...

Sup ppl. I'm over here in District Heights, MD and I work at the Eb Games in Bowie Town Center. Come on in sometime. We've got Guitar Heroes on display and it kicks so much ass!

KB in PG Plaza had nothing again. The Target next to the mall always has nice clearance stuff in the music section.

You're not the crazy guy that works there, are you? I used to live in District Heights and bought my PS2 from the Bowie EB. There was a clerk there who was hyper and way too enthusiastic about his job. Always frightened me when I went in there, but I haven't been to Bowie in over a year.

A guy shows a little enthusiasm at work, and he's suddenly labeled as "crazy." Perhaps you would prefer the braindead teens from McDonalds? :D

There's two kinds of enthusiastic.

Good enthusiastic: "Hello, thanks for stopping by the store, if you need any help, I'll be happy to answer any questions you have."

Bad enthusiastic: Clerk follows you around, and anytime you even glance at a game title, launches into an excited frenzy about how great that game is, how he's played it, what his favorite character is, etc. I'm all for friendly clerks, but I don't want to be smothered by one.

Around my area, the EB in the Columbia Mall has a great staff. They're always very helpful and will strike up an honest conversation while you're checking out, but they respect your space. The staff at the Gamestop in St. John's Plaza, on the other hand, drives me nuts. Everytime I walk through the door, I'm hit with the same schpiel about "did you bring any used games to trade today?" and "what sort of game are you looking for?" and "how'd you like to preorder an Xbox 360?" I'm just browsing for goodness sake, leave me alone! The worst is that customers ask them about games, and they act all know-it-all about stuff, except that their responses are wrong half the time.
