Yeah it's insane! Saw the panama soccer team there 2 weeks ago, was pretty cool haha. Haven't really frequented the gamestop much but may have to check it out.

@ mm2barry
No WoW but I am going to get into Starcraft 2 one of these days, not sure if you play though.


i have been done with RTS games since Age of Empires 1 and Warcraft 2. I just don't like the genre. if there's something original out there, I might be interested, but the repetitive gather resources-build stuff-attack enemy is just too old of a mechanic for me.
i heard good things about Warhammer: Dawn of War, but i have a mac and don't really game on it at all (outside of Diablo 2 and WoW).

I work at the fashion centre the one in pentagon city (shoot me) graduated college last year and i work for min. wage, this job market blows!

Hey, don't think I meant you before in the thread. Eh, I've been out of college for three years (Electrical Engineering type degree) and my job doesn't even fully utilize my degree. I've been trying to find a new job all year but continue to get shot down (at least I get the interviews).

I tend to frequent the Montgomery County malls more, though I agree that Pentagon City is a very nice mall.

I really need to visit Pentagon City Mall. I went there on my DC trip in middle school back in 1997. Had some funny/memorable moments there, so I've been wanting to return. But since I stick to the Capital Beltway area or Maryland, I never went there. Might just bite the bullet and go tomorrow.

I go to malls all over MD. I mostly stick to Arundel Mills/Columbia Mall, but I've been to (first 9 I went to 5+ times):
-Arundel Mills Mall
-Columbia Mall
-Marley Station Mall
-Westfield Annapolis
-White Marsh Mall
-Towson Town Center
-Lakeforest Mall
-Westfield Montgomery
-Tysons Corner
-Westfield Wheaton
-Tysons Galleria
-Gallery at Harbor Place
-Queenstown Premium Outlets
-Potomac Mills Mall
-Harford Mall
-Town Center at Westminister
-Bowie Towne Center
-Beltway Plaza (so shady)
-PG County Mall
-Owings Malls Mall (lol)
-Laurel Mall (big lol)

and other tiny little malls.

Anyone want to buy the Mortal Kombat Tournament edition fight stick? Would love to deal it locally :)

I need a fight stick for my PS3. I haven't thought about the MK one, but was looking for a BlazBlue one (which you can't find).

After looking at your tradelist, I should have left AC Brotherhood for you (I just recently traded it to Amazon).

@ The Mana Knight

Yeah I am newish to this thread haha I used to be in the Pennsylvania thread until I moved haha. Now I sorta frequent both since I have been coming home quite often to get stuff sorted out for my wedding :) Yeah getting a job is rough, I always get the "well you need experience blah blah blah". Like how does one get experience if no one hires those with very little exp? Yeah it's a decent mall but since I work in one of the Dept. stores I avoid it at all costs on my days off haha.

I have relatives from PA (NW and Pittsburgh, area), along with me traveling to Hershey Park and snowboarding in the state.

I use to go back and forth getting my stuff while in college, but now its hard living 10 hours away.

I will get to the mall one weekend, just need to revisit some other malls first. Did you ever go to Tysons Corner though? That mall is the biggest in the area.

Potomac Mills. It's a very large outlet mall. It has the exact same layout as Gurnee Mills in Illinois if I remember correctly (been to both). It has great clothing stores, but I prefer Arundel Mills for some more unique stuff (like Medievil Times, Dave & Busters, etc.). I've been to that IKEA before. Woodbridge is just over a 1 hour drive for me, so I rarely go there. Drove passed there many times on my way to King's Dominion/Busch Gardens. I need to go back there to check out Painted Visions (mostly a comic book store, but I'm more interested in the figures and manga).

Tysons Corner is more like Pentagon City Fashion Mall (with the traditional mall stores), but MUCH larger.

Welcome to the area. :D I know what you mean on stuff getting damaged on moving, because I broke my PS3 USB headset when moving out here. :-(

I dunno much about the Arlington area for the stuff (was there yesterday for the first time since my DC trip years ago), but know of places around my area that could do it (which is 1 hour away though).

I was the head of PSN game nights. We use to talk ALL the time during our game nights. The headset was a very big deal because the voice quality through it was ultra clear. Oh well, I just bought the official headset after that on Target Endwar clearance.

Hey guys,
I'm looking to sell my Rockband/Guitar Hero collection. It comes with RB 1/2/ACDC, GH 3/World Tour/Metallica/Beatles/Van Halen/Aerosmith. 2 guitars, drums, microphone.
I'm looking to get $200 or best offer. Let me know if anyone's interested before I put it on Craigslist. I live in Annapolis, so I'll have to meet you guys halfway.
If you're interested in a trade, let me know what you're willing to give up.

Crap, I didn't know about that day. Oh well, I probably won't register until September.

I use to have it on PS3. My co-worker really loves it, but I was just terrible at it and didn't get into it (I'm not a big FPS fan though).

I used to work in one of the building across the street from the mall, and it does get ridiculously busy, especially during the spring when all the schools decide to take their class trips to DC. I do like that it has the only Gamestop I've been to that annually gives away their leftover pre-order bonuses.


More info on this please?

Edited by nixmahn, 07 July 2011 - 06:52 PM.

Have 3 demo SSB codes for trade. Already have last 6 Club Nintendo Wii U eshop games from Club Nintendo. Will take any Wii U eshop game codes I don't already have or Non CN 3DS eshop code.

I could use some RB2 or GH guitars.
