All for XB360. to clarify, this is the one in the Walmart parking lot.

SoulCaliber IV = $43.97, Ninja Gaiden II and Guitar Hero: Areosmith = $50.97 each. All three on clearance. Was tempted by SCIV, but can't afford it right now.

Yeah, the LB Target had Lost Odyssey about a week ago marked down to $15 so I bought one. They also had Scene It LCA for $15. I was thinking about going back for more, to trade, but didn't want to be a hoarder. Already impressed by the clearance availability at my new local store.

As you may or may not know Circuit City here in Merced is closing. They just started clearance of stuff today. Games are currently 10% off. Lots of stock. Nothing seems to be picked over.

Might be a good deal if things were tagged correctly to begin with, and/or their prices weren't already way above that of just about any seller online. I'd like to get some of their accessories when they drop. Also, what about signage and other POP? What will they do with it? I'd be very interested in getting some of their game posters and whatnot.

Small update on CC in Merced: Games are still 15% off and accessories are still 10% off. Only change is the location of the stuff....moved up to where the cds and dvds were. Good availability of titles still there...only due to the current discount.

Yet another CC update: Games are now 20%/accessories are 15%. Looks like some games are starting to move but it's hard to tell how much is due to the 20% discount and how much is due to it being black friday.

Another CC update... games and accessories @ 40% off. The Wii games are GONE except for 7 or 8 copies of GH: Aerosmith, a copy of BWii and NCAA Football. Still a decent quantity left of PS3 and 360 titles. Only small selections of DS and PS2 games left...still might find something worth picking up.

I wish I had money to get out there and take a look for something like Lips. I'm looking for a deal on that game right now.

Bah. Went to Merced on Monday and the Circuit City was all but done. They only had fixtures for sale, no merchandise. I must've just missed the goods by a couple days. Weak sauce.

Making a run to the Turlock CC today. I'm going to pick up as many Wii & Microsoft Points cards as I can lay hands on. Wish me luck.

Looks like you might be able to get that deal on Lips you were looking for, Redeema!

Edit: Followup- Could only find 800 pts cards. They were not discounted (!!!??) and rang up at $9.99. I didn't have the heart to glitter and magazine rack the employees seeing as how they have lost their jobs in a few weeks/months.

I went over there today to see what I can find. Didn't see any Wii points (unless you got to them first). It's 10% off on games/30% off on accessories. It's crazy how much people jump on things when they're just 10% off.

When the games hit 40% off about 10-14 days before Christmas, that's when the games became picked over with nothing but a lot of shovelware left, if anything was left. I expect something similar with the rest of the CC closings.

I went to a CC in Modesto? and stuff was only 10% off otherwise I might have bought some points cards, but as it was only 10% I passed. They didn't have Lips there as I thought about it at a measly 10% off even though I could have gotten a potential better deal from amazon or anywhere else online. Overall disappointment as everything was marked up just to be marked down and yet they wonder why they were losing money...

Hit up some Target's looking for those gaming Ottoman's for $15 as some have been reporting, but no luck they were all tagged at full retail. Anyone see them in Merced on clearance? Target needs to beef up their clearance section again everything has been completely gone since Christmas.

Redeema: Don't buy points cards from CC. I think they took them all down, becuase there is a problem with activating them, as CC no longer has authorization. A bunch of people got caught out buying worhtless plastic. There was a thread maybe 2 days ago, and it probably is also posted in the generic CC Liquidation thread under VideoGame deals forum.

I'll keep my eye out for the ottoman if I end up going to the Target or Atwater SuperTarget. FYI- Last weekend the new Target in Riverbank had 2 Devil May Cry 360 for $14.99. Other than that I've only seen the Jericho for $40 on the clearance endcaps around here recently.

Hit up Turlock CC yesterday, the 360 section has been picked through with the 360 games section condensed to 1/3 size. No glaringly great deals, but there are a few clearance 360 games left, as well as a few old collector's editions in the display case.

Went by the Turlock CC today. Nothing good left, except they had a boatload of 360 GH: WT full sets for $113.97 after discount (only 40% on 'social gaming'). They had GH III as well for $41, but I'd already gotten mine from RS for $29.99.

If you're in the area, you might want to swoop in, but it is merely cleaning the gristle from the bones now. High-priced gristle at that (ROFL'd @ a Halo 2 game guide for 60% off of $19.99). Liquidators, LOL: better deals at the Target across the way!

Speaking of Target...I got some good deals in the LB store on SingStar and Disney Sing It! They've got a ton of other games, but nothing too desirable except maybe Soul Calibur IV (360).

Sup guys! I'm in Manteca.

Has anyone seen Fable II for a good price anywhere in the valley? The local Gamestops still have it listed for $54.99 used :( I read briefly about the LE version on the Target clearance thread but I haven't been able to find one yet.

Thanks for any info/leads!

Yeah, I saw my Target with Fable II LE on clearance, but I was waiting for it to drop again and I never saw the one copy they had again. I think it was going for $45, which, I guess is decent. Was hoping for Last Remnant at a good price, but last I went into my Target they were out. Anyone have this nearby still, the Target clearance thread has people finding it for $15 now.

Checked Turlock and Merced Targets while in area and nothing on the Fable or Last Remnant. Didn't try Atwater Super Target though.

Did see NCAA March Madness 08 (6x), Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway (3x) and Bourne Supremacy (1x) all for 360 all for $14.88 clearance at the Merced Target. Almost bit at Bourne.

EDIT 3/28/09: Checked Riverbank Target and Atwater SuperTarget, Many copies of Bourne Supremacy for $14.88, nothing else 360.

The LB Target has tons of copies of Brothers in Arms on the 360 if anyone is looking. Lots of NCAA March Madness 08 as well. Beyond that not much else. I would check the Kmart in town, but they never have anything tagged and it's just nigh impossible to check anything there and I'm not going to print up UPC's just to try and get a deal on a game unless it's something I really want. Most of the stuff I buy is on a whim and because it's at a price that seems like a steal.

I ended up picking up Guiter Hero Aerosmith (360) for $10 at Target the other day as well as SingStar Abba for $20.

Question for you guys (not deal related per se, but I beg your indulgence):

I just moved from Delhi to rural Livingston. I mean waaaaayy rural Livingston, as in 'middle of an orchard past the Gallo Plant' rural. Off of Westside Blvd near Griffith if you know the area.

There is no cable internet, no DSL (although maybe in +/- 6 months) available at my new place (this despite both Charter and Frontier swearing they serviced the house prior to me moving). I live and breathe internet and XBox Live: what are my options?

I know of satellite internet, but worry about lag/ping and the high costs (especially if DSL is really coming to my location). I also investigated 3g wireless internet via my current cellular provider AT&T (they have a tower not 1 mile from the house), but am not sure I can stretch it into my WLAN (3 pcs, 2 360s and a Wii).

What are your thoughts?

Any advice or insight would be appreciated. Thank in advance,
/s Vector

Not sure, but Hughes is one of those satellite providers. Maybe they've dropped prices? How about Clearwire? Do they extend that far out there? I use Comcast and you must live waaay out in Bumfuck Livingston to not get service coverage from them. I'm not sure about any other options you might have. Maybe some other more local folks to you might have answers.

You are now on the list.

Just a note, nothing special going on at the Target clearance section this week. They did have Tiger Woods 09 for the 360 for $20, if that means anything.

Afro Samurai for the PS3 for $41.98.

There was something else of interest to me anyway, but I can't remember what it was and it wasn't cheap enough, so I passed.
