I live all the way out by Lakeland, but I'm in pretty often since I'm a grad student at UCF. You're right about that Target at Waterford Lakes. It's pretty much barren every time I go in.

I'll make sure to check that out Bezerker if I head that way.

yeah when i do find a load of clearance games they are 33% and maybe 50% off at most. They never make it to 75% like my old targets, they disappear within a day or two of being there. It sucks but it does help my backlog from growing any further.

I live in the college park area! Checking in! I usually hit the winter park, and E. Colonial Gamestops. Good folks there, so far.

@atomicsmurf: Hai. Those are pretty good gamestops, though one of my buddies had some issues with the one outside Fashion Square Mall.


Anyone find any deals lately? I feel like Target has been barren since last Black Friday.

@gr8asianman, if you don't mind me asking, what was the problem with that GS. We're talking about the one in the Target shopping center right? That's the one I use.
Thanks! :)

That is the one. I think the management has changed since then, but he had a number of issues with his preorders, and on one occasion he was purchasing a used game and one pulling it out of the cabinet threw it like a frisbee to the person ringing it up.

Wow. Frisbee tossing discs... not good, and not funny. I don't even know how well they test used games for defects, but that's just stupid throwing it around like that. And I'm not too fond of their 7 day policy for used games either. It usually takes me more than that to work through a game to find out if it has any disc issues. But oh well... so far I've been lucky.

I hope management did change. Thanks for the info. :)

Yeah, thats super poor customer service, especially since the my buddy was right there. I haven't been there in a while, but I haven't seen the former managers car in a while so I don't think hes there anymore.

I was just there today. I'm not sure his position, but the guy working, Clint, was a super cool guy. He gave me a heads up on the Mana Khemia LE they just got in (which I bought immediately). We ended up talking about Rarities, CE's, buying games at KB Toys, etc.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Fuck Dorscher Plaza (the one by Chuck E Cheese on Colonial). I'd been trying to pick up their copies of MGS HD Collection CE, Atelier Rorona & Atelier Totori since they came out and they just kept telling me they were "on hold". Only found out today they were on hold for the manager and that he has multiples of the same games in the back (not actually buying them, just keeping them in the back).

Dorscher also gave me a great line about how "No gamestops sell GBA games anymore" after I just came from Clint's store which had a case FULL of GBA games.

Yea, I think the manger I was referring to is no longer under their employ. I'm familiar with the Doescher plaza one. So they have copies of the MGS LE? Hm...I've been looking for one too. I know his regional and district manager and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be pleased that he is hoarding inventory, most likely waiting for a price drop...

On a side note, I think that the best locations I've seen for drops have been the Toys-R-Us next to FL Mall and the Sears at Fashion Square and Florida Mall. I've seen a couple decent things around the $15 price point: i.e. Naruto Ultimate something 2, Dungeon Siege III etc...

Winter Garden/Ocoee/Metro West here. Think I posted a couple of pages back. Sears at Florida Mall had some 50% off of clearance prices. Not much that I wanted but you can check it out. It was a couple of weeks ago so I don't remember what they had.

I found a Halo 4 LE in Kissimmee at Target. They are still out there in some areas here if anyone is looking.

I also want to give up to Gamers Inc by Waterford. They are currently fixing a Neo Geo of mine and have been cool during the process. If you have a broke console then they are the place to bring it (game store in Lakeland mall also does a nice job).
My games list, Just hit 1000!!!

Nice, I live in Avalon Park and did not even know this store was close to Waterford. Will definitely have to go check it out.

Kind of out of the way for me, but if you shop at the Oviedo Play N Trade, Living Social has a deal right now for $30 towards pre-owned games or repairs for $15.

Funny -- I went in there yesterday and the frisbee issue was seen right in front of me. Thankfully, I was there only putting down money on a reservation.

Theres this quaint little store on the staples side of waterford that sells retros and consoles and repairs. Only problem is... the DS i bought had no SERIAL so gamestop wouldn't take it when I went to trade-up to 3DS.

I really needed somewhere to rant a bit, hopefully since they're in the area you guys may understand.  I'm trying not to be "that guy" on Facebook by just shitting all over their posts but Gameworld in Kissimmee  are a bunch of idiots.   They post rants about businesses selling items for more than the SRP then go and sell incomplete copies of the .hack games for $70-$100.  The kicker today was a tease they posted about getting in a "very rare" Shin Megami Tensei game for PS2 and then they reveal its DS2 which was reprinted and still has 105 copies under $25 shipped on Amazon.  God only knows what they're selling it for under the guise of it being "very rare".

 

Their facebook for those that want a good laugh:

I didn't even know that place existed, and I drive through downtown Kissimmee at least once a week.

Gameworld used to be great back in the day when it was owned by Matt, But he sold it, and you're right the new owners are crazy. They used to have a store over by the old Target in town, I went in about a year ago and they had 2 or 3 360 games and the rest was all overpriced previous generation crap.

Not surprisingly, they're closing down again, though according to them the landlord is selling the building they were in.   Amazingly I found 2 items that were decently priced on their website but of course it was too good to be true because they're telling me the two games wont fit in the tiny unpadded flat rate envelope and asking if I want to pay more to upgrade to a medium flat rate box ($7 more)  even though they'll fit in a small flat rate box (20 cents more) or a padded flat rate mailer (35 cents more).

 

I'm trying to keep civil as they're selling the items for half of what they're going for online, but the fact that they cant even run a simple web store either is amazing.
