Orlando has really been cleaned out since the holidays. I know competition is fierce here, but it seems ridiculously dry in my opinion. Anyone find anything decent recently?

The Millinenia store and the SODO store have absolutely nothing, not stuff I dont like, I mean NOTHING. lol

CC & TRU aren't much better.

I was hoping to score a :ps3:GTA4 SE from the Target at Millinenia, but they didn't make it past the holidays.

I agree even in altamonte, if there is a clearance at circuit city if you don't get there by sunday morning you won't see anything at all.

The lack of games is kinda nice on the wallet though. I'm on a quest to find one a SNES (mini redesign) so having some extra funds helps.

Found a PS2 Aerosmith Guitar Hero bundle at one of the local Targets at the $27.48 price point, but opted to not buy it due to broken seals (looked complete, but it would likely wait for one of the kid's birthdays in a few months, so any problems would be way past receipt time).

Other than that, not much outside the Blockbusters.

Megacon is too geared towards comic books and tabletop/card games. I went there year before last for the anime and was sorely disappointed by that too.

I'm surprised there's not more talk about this being JACON's last year.

I so miss Otakon and Katsucon...

Definitely.

Last year really? I went a couple years ago and wasn't too impressed. I'm more into the anime/manga myself so I just save my funds and go out to Metrocon in Tampa. Although after going to Comic Con back in 2007 everything just kinda pales in comparison.

This is my first year going to Megacon, have the full 3 day pass that my girlfriend got for me, looking forward to seeing Chris Claremont, I have almost a full run of all his UXM issues and a few have John Byrne already signed. I hope the convention is worth it, looking forward to some decent game tournaments (SFIV?).

Also, anyone else in town have Tatsunoko vs Capcom? Mine is coming next week and Im looking for some competition.

Does anyone know where the retro game store that was on Colonial drive (in the Wendy's plaza next to Firehouse Subs) relocated to? I remember they posted a new location on the door, but the plaza has been demolished. I knew I should have written it down...

I dont know the address, but I know Granny Gamer relocated to Winter Park. A few months back on Tampa Craig's list there was a post for $1 games, apparently she hit that and bought a bunch, I ended up buying 120 (mostly imports), however, I was told she grabbed all the real good stuff.

I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier, but I just searched for 'retro game store in Winter Park, Florida' and got this address

325 S. Orlando Ave.
Winter Park, Florida 32789.
(407) 539-1044

I need a new SNES AC adapter, so if I can't find one at the PnT while I'm by UCF I'll probably swing by.

I passed by the Target near Fashion Square and the only decent thing I saw were a couple copies of :ps3:Mercenaries 2 @ $24.98 w/ the rest of the electronics clearance and :360:Mercenaries 2 @ $20.98 (behind the glass).

Anyone know someone in the area who could help me finish getting my Wii to play imports?. My internet went out when I had someone doing it and he didn't finish. Have the homebrew channel and can play Gamecube imports, just missing a file to play Wii imports.

If any of you are really close to UCF, I just got an email now from Play It! Games. Basically they're a traveling video game store and they go from college to college with A LOT of vintage games, systems, and accessories. I guess business has been crappy this year so they're going out of business, and tomorrow's (2/11) their last day. They're going to be in front of the Student Union for Market Day (10a-4p) selling everything off starting at $5.00. I wish I could get over there since I've bought plenty of GameCube games from them before.

man I wish I checked that yesterday! Violet arrows! Thank you though

Anyway I was going to say 40% CC Waterford
No L4D on 360 but, it is on PS3 and PC
I bought last mirror's edge.
Wii is only console left. Employee said 30% off but, no sign to confirm
If anybody can get a L4D I will meet them somewhere and pay them for it!
I really have no idea how many CC's are in Orlando.
Dead Space is there 1 copy of Grid left (orig price 49.99). Like a billion GTA4 Fable 2 and POP.

Violetarrows: Darn I missed out on that.

pmp1986: PnT is good and you should also check out

some stuff is a little pricey, but it's pretty good for a mom & pop store.
Also, depending on how far your willing to drive, off of I-4 and US98 in the Lakeland Square Mall there is a store called Game Attic. They have a really good selection of older titles, but expect to pay accordingly.

kojubat: I went to the CC in Lakeland today and I didn't see any. Games were priced at 40%, but I got :ds:TWEWY for $18 so I think it's at 50%. DVD's were 40% off so I picked up :dvd:Battlestar Galatica Season 3.
