Amazon is telling me I won't get my Mario until wednesday. Why does Nintendo insist on releases their games on sundays!?

I'm thinking about getting rid of my ps3 80 with the TE fightstick. Also have GT5 and SSFIV that get no playing time. I figured I'd run it by here since I had a couple responses the last time.

You should have gotten Mario from kmart. If you did you'd have it and a $15 game credit. The game is awesome. I hope you get it in time to play some to discuss on the show. MAGFEST!

I'm new to the DC area and looking to sell a bunch of games - would rather sell to a local CAG than to GameStop. Check my list in the marketplace and let me know if you're interested in anything. I'm willing to sell everything I have bc I need money for Christmas presents. Send me a PM if you're interested.

Hopefully I'll get to meet some of you guys at a meet-up in the future, too!

I would not buy from K-mart because I lack their rewards card to get the deal, and K-Mart is WAY too far out of my way (nearest being either Pasadena, MD or on Wabash Ave in Baltimore).

Didn't catch you at all man. I heard this year the attendance was four to five thousand but it didn't seem any worse then last year as far as crowding .

I heard it was 5100. I just wrote a CAG blog on the event. Saw your photos posted on cosplay.com.

I'll link you to my cosplay via PM.

Well next year is a new location which the con needs. just hoping they don't raise prices anymore it was approaching Otakon levels this year and I personally don't feel it should be that high just yet.

You guys ready for the dumbest question ever?
Is anyone done with Skyrim and want to trade it? Let me know. I have a huge collection and I'm sure we can work something out.
My collection on here is pretty up to date, but let me know if you're looking for something in particular.
If we agree to something, depending on where you live, we can meet half-way. I'm in Annapolis.

I have a PS3 Saints Row 3: The third.

I would ideally like to trade it for Skyrim for the PS3 or $30 cash.

I live near 16th and P St NW DC.

Who's going to PAX East? Was gonna buy my 3-day pass today, but with hotel prices like they are now, it comes out to hundreds going by myself, I love going to the convention, but that is just to much $ for one trip unless I plan better.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

With PAX East falling on Easter weekend, it wasn't even a thought about going. What about Magfest? Are you going?

I most likely will go. I preregistered, but haven't paid yet cause I don't know if I'll be in Puerto Rico for the holidays. Parking is a B!#$& there, but I'll go anyway if here.

PAX East is such a bigger event, and I love every second, but I gotta be realistic on what it would end up costing me.

MAGFest is at a new location this year, the Gaylord near DC, so the horrendous parking and broken elevators shouldn't be a problem this year. Although god help those dumbass elevator party kids if they manage to break ALL of the elevators in the Gaylord....

Oh man. After hearing about the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K debacle, I'm not sure if I wanna go there. How many people go to MAGFest, usually?

And I will definitely be going to PAX East this time, come hell or high water.

I think Magfest last year had over 3000 people. But I could be wrong. What is the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K debacle?
Pax East picked a great weekend for next year. So great that I won't be there.

It was a 15 and 5K race that took place a couple of weeks ago. A large portion of the runners that entered complained that there was not enough space at that venue for the race, and it caused a lot of problems. DCist has a summary of the gripes here.

However, I think the problems were caused more by the event organizers than the venue itself. It appears that they booked too many runners, and the paths they chose were not optimal to handle the crowd. I'm guessing MAGFest won't be as much of an issue, especially since there will be a fraction of the crowd.

Crowd won't be an issue Katsucon has more attendees then Magfest and they manage just fine. Not thrilled with the area due to food pricing no cheap eats that don't involve getting back in the car and going up a few exits.

That's my only issue with the Gaylord (being expensive and all in the area), but I do like it being away from things because parking is easy, don't have to deal with much traffic getting in, and the building is pretty large.
