I've got a black DS Lite that I'm looking to sell if anyone is interested - also, I have no idea what price is fair so any insight is appreciated. It is in very good condition with no scratches on the screens and no mechanical problems. It comes with the charger, stylus, and the following DS games:

Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (Complete)
Pokemon White (Complete)
Super Mario 64 DS (Complete)
Sim City DS (Complete)
Nintendogs: Lab and Friends (Complete)
Mario 3 on 3 Hoops (Cart Only and no cover art)

I also have the following GBA games I am selling with the DS system:

Mario Tennis Power Tour (Cart Only)
Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 (Cart Only)
Mario Gold Advanced Tour (Cart Only)
Sonic Advance (Cart Only)
Zelda: Link to the Past/Four Swords (Cart Only)


Send me a PM if you're interested in buying this bundle or if you have any idea what price I should ask for. I'm in the Georgetown area if looking to buy locally.

Thanks!

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.


I'm going. Got my 3-day pass when they went on sale.

I'm undecided on PAX East, but I'll be at MAGFest Friday to Sunday


I'm going to both events. It'll be my first video game expo/conventions, so I'm pretty excited to finally get to one.

Btw, do any of you guys know of any good retro/indie video game stores in the area? I live on Ft. Meade, which is kinda in between D.C. and Baltimore, and I haven't been able to find anything good.

I want to say eStarland in Fairfax, VA, but that's about an hour drive from Ft. Meade. Small store and pretty much same stock as their website, but they've got games for current gen as well as lots of retro system games. Worth checking out if you're ever in the area though.

Thanks for the info, guys. I went to Power Gamer II, and they had some very reasonably priced Dreamcast stuff. Used DCs were $30, and controllers and VMUs were $5 each. The games, however, were overpriced, in my opinion. Most DC games ranged from $15-$30 each, but they did have some pretty cool import titles and some games still in shrink wrap.

Also, what days are you guys going to MAGFest? I think I may go Saturday, and I thought it'd be fun to meet up with some fellow CAGs.

If anyone out there needs a bed for Magfest, I got a room at the Hampton Inn across the street from the Convention Center for friday and saturday nights. It's stated as having 2 beds and a pullout sofa. BigRob and myself have the 2 beds, so if you:

1) are someone I have met in person before

2) are comfortable on a pullout sofabed

3) are able to chip in a little

...then please PM/email/call/text me and we'll work something out. Hope to see you all there!

I'm still debating on whether or not to go. I have a bunch of obligations through the weekend, but there are large chunks of time where I could theoretically go to the National Harbor. Would it be worth going for a few hours Friday night, Sunday afternoon, and possibly Saturday morning/late night?

Check the schedule http://magfestubersy...gfest/schedule/ and see what interests you most. That should help you make up your mind.

I'm really debating whether I want to come on Friday or save my time off and go to work. Really, the only thing that interests me is the Jon St John talk. It also sucks that there are no panels after 6. It doesn't help that I don't know the band schedule.

That money is already spent. I prereged for the weekend, mainly because I want to see Nobuo Uematsu on Saturday. It is really the only reason why I prereged.

Not sure I'll get two days worth of enjoyment out of old arcade games. As I said, I'll be there most of the day on Saturday.

If I were in your shoes I would go Friday mostly hitting panels and videos then leave around 6. Leave Saturday for gaming, panels and music.

Family is still in town and I have to hold money back for shoulder surgery, so it's a no go on MAGFest again (well, late Saturday/Sunday is a BIG maybe, so we'll see). Hoping to still do Katsucon though.

Did end up going, after spending a bundle getting my car fixed up. Did have a good time, once I found some people to play board games with. Did go see Armcannon, but my enjoyment suffered somewhat by not really being strong in my knowledge of 8 and 16 bit game music.

Going to the Ellen McLain Q&A is a big part of my early day and getting my friend's copy of Portal 2 signed. Late, it is Earthbound Papas. In between, I'll figure out.
