What state is that in?








Anywho, has anyone been in the gamestop in gov. square? I went in there today, and, as usual, the employees in there tried to get me to buy more items than I needed. Had to reassure him 3 times that i did not want a ps2 headset.


Anyone from de?

I think I was in that one last weekend (there are so many in that area I get them all mixed up). If it was that one I picked up GB copies of Castlevania Legends and Bonk's Revenge.

Well what do you expect, the US stationed all their troops there and the natives didn't like it.

Edit: Wait, I'm thinking of Iraq.

Born in Wilmington. The big news when I moved, circa 1992 (I was 7) was that Dover was getting the state's first, I think, Wal-Mart. Baby!

Delaware is most definitely the shiznat though. No sales tax? Better than TN's assreaming of 9.25%, yes sir.

The biggest surprise for me when I moved from Newark (where I spent the first 17 years of my life) to Manhattan was that they sold beer in grocery stores.

The second was that you can't buy tasty-kakes in new york :(

Delaware raised right here, returned after 5 years of schooling in PA to take a job at CSC.

Any charter kids here? (if your in northern delaware, you know. you probably beat one of out sports teams :) )

Flyer stick with the supermarket, gamestore jobs are much more hype then you think. (Unless you work at the GS in suburban plaza, that store is always dead)

Thank God I live within Newark City Limits, no electric price hike for me.

woot @ there being a delaware thread.

I'm from Middletown, and i agree the Gov Sq gamestop is the worst ever. With the Peoples Plaza one in for a close second.

And about peoples plaza....the In The Groove 2 machine has been down for like 3 weeks now. agag.

I forgot about this thread...

I hope it wasn't one of you punks who raided the Concord Pike CC on the day the GBA/DS games dropped to $8.96. I knew there were at least 4 copies of Tales of Phantasia the day before, and after work I headed to the store and they were all gone - with every other desirable title. I had to get my Tales of Phantasia from the KOP CC the next day, though it wasn't all bad as I do work up there.

As far as current deals, that Concord Pike CC had 3 copies each of Total Overdode and Project Snowblind for $3.96 each in the clearance bin. This was as of Thursday night.

I heard a rumor that a new store that sells games is opening on route 40, by gov. square. Of course, I heard this from an EB employee, but who knows?



at that new shopping center with no store names yet, near Hollywood Videos.

Several years back I remember there was an indie game shop in the Prices Corner shopping center. It's no longer there now, of course. In fact, I think the EB there took it's place as it appears to be in the exact same location.

This thread deserves a bump, us Delawareans need to stick together ;)


Has anyone bought a game at the EB Games store in the Christiana Mall and then turned around and headed to the other store (I think its called EBX, by Auntie Annes in the foodcourt) and traded them in? I'm thinking of doing it tommorow or Friday for the $10 extra trade, but I don't know if they communicate with each other or something. I was also going to head over to the K-Mart in Gov. Square and see if I can find any cheap games.


The only thing I hate is that my car died on me a while ago and I don't have the funds to get a nice new car. So I have to take DART buses everywhere, and if anyone has ever been on those in the morning with crazy people talking about their previous work day or their current work day to and from lunch, I feel your pain.

I'm really starting to hate the EB games in the Christiana mall (the big one, not the one by Auntie Annes, that one is great, best one I've ever been in)

Its Turning into the one in Gov. Square.

Edit*

I meant to say how the employees act, how they are informed, etc.

Yeah, some of the employees there are pricks.

For some good EB employees, check out the Prices Corner store.

Yeah, I'll do that. I usually just go to the Christiana Mall or Gov. Square eb/gamestops because they are so close to my house. not even 5 minutes away for either (well, maybe 10 minutes to the gov. square one on a bad day, since the light at 40 and walther road never seems to change.)



I've been to the EB Games in the mall twice in the past week, around 11-12 in the morning, and those employees were horrible. I was waiting at the desk to trade some stuff in and they were sitting there talking about how they were going around Salem Woods looking for something. I couldn't believe that I was just standing there and none of them came forward until I asked for help.
