was just wondering if anyone saw any $5 games at the best buys at liberty tree mall or square one mall


I stopped by Square One a couple of weeks back and was able to grab the last copy of Wakeboarding Unleashed (Xbox) for $5. That's about all I saw, though.

They also had a bunch of copies of the NOT-FOR-RESALE Tetris/Clone Wars (also Xbox) bundle. But they were charging 10 bucks for that. Though technically that's like 2 $5 games. Kinda, sorta...

The heat was fine during the day but sucks when your trying to sleep. :P


Circuit City in Dedham had(most of these were posted already in another thread, I'm just relating what is available)
La Pucelle--$45
Theif (XBOX) $35, use the Target $15 coupon to knock it down to $20!
Command and Conquer 2 (PC)$3
Halo (PC) $10
Alter Echo $5
Shenmue II $5
Starksy and Hutch $5
DBZ Ultimate Battle 22 $5
Wild 9 $5

Best buy in Dedham had crap. I've never seen such barren shelves at a Best Buy.

Strawberries in Dedham has a used copy of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow for $25. It comes with the original box but it looks a little beat up.

If you can score a copy of NCCA Football 2004 on Gamecube ($5 at Best Buy) you can get it in for $26 and just pay tax to get it.

Or you can buy Go Go Hypergrind at an EB store for $13 and trade it in for $26 credit. Roadkill on Gamecube is $4.98 at TRU and went for $24 s couple of months ago....

Just a heads up for those looking for the game. I'd get it myself but it'll be at least a month before I can get back to Dedham.

Any Mass gamers have some good luck with the CC clearance? All I could find at the Leominster store was Mega Man X7, but I only had a few games that I was looking for.

I found lots of games at CC in Dedham, including Disgaea for $5. They still have a decent stock of them but they put them in the backroom until sunday. a woman who worked there also told me they might get more stuff in before sunday.

Edit: Just read a lot of posts on this site and there is way too much hostility about the CC deal here so I'm deleting my whiny rant on it.

I was in Worcester today so I stopped by the Millbury store. Still a few games left there. Still some P.N. 03 left (minus the one I grabbed), some RE: Code Veronica for the GC, and some others. They were starting to move them into 4.99 bins while I was there, so there might not be much left by now. I did also see some MGS2: Substance for the X-Box that they missed when putting the bins together, so good chance those are still there. That's about all I saw, but I didn't really look very closely at the X-Box games.

EDIT: They also had MegaMan Network Transmission for GC

I got my Mega Man NT for $5 at CC last month on a BB PM!

I forgot about this one (seen it last week) but any of you Boston CAGer's who can get to Dudley Square in Roxbury can get your hands on~

-Hitman Contracts (XBOX, ps2)
-Chronicles of Riddick
-Final Fantasy X-2
-Manhunt (Ps2 and I THINK XBOX)
NBA Live 2004

Can't remember the rest since i was just taking a quick peek but there were at least 20 more and they are all $30 brand new.

I haven't run into any more deals worth posting (because I bought the only/last ones) but if your looking for psone games, then you want to go to CD SPINS. All of their psone games are 50% and I've been able to pick up the likes of Mega Man Legends 2 and Castlevania: SOTN for under $10.

Also, the Strawberries at Downtown Crossing still has

-Arc the Lad Collection-$30
-King of Fighters EX--15
-Klonoa on GBA---15
Contra Shattered Soldier used--$15


I picked up Dragonball Z arcade stick there last week for $9.99.

NIce, I'll have to check CD Spins tomorrow during lunch. I've seen the Arc the Lad Collection, but isn't it labelled $59.99 or something?

The CD Spins is on the block where the Sam Goody is. When you get to the Sam Goody, take a right on the street leading towards the Commons and it will be on the left.

Yeah, I found 3 different stores.
One is downtown, a little up the street from Sam Goody.
Another is right next to Newbury Comics in Back Bay, and yet another is down the street from Forest Hills Station (the 39 bus passes right by it).

And yeah, Arc the Lad is labeled 59.99 but I scanned it and it came up as $29.99.

I already have it so I never bought it, but if it ever dropped to under $20 I'd snatch it up.


Sam Goody has Grandia Xtreme but it's still $49.99 and they didn't have much in the way of clearance titles. I seen a Capcom racing game for XBOX that had a 50% off sticker on it as well as Wild Arms 3 for 75% off ( I bought one and I think it was the last copy)

Newbury Comics, right next to State train station, has Wild Arms 2 for psx for $10. Been there for a while too.

Wow, that's pretty good. How good are the games? I haven't heard much about them since I just got a PS1 recently. At that price, I might have to pick it up though.

I only played through the first Arc, I thought it was great despite the gameplay being heavily dated. I stopped playing the second Arc just because I had tons of other games at the time and never went back to finish it.

The DNC at my doorstep has prevented me from being able to venture out to seek cheap games!

Altho I did manage to run to Cambridgeside...low stocks (all consoles) at BB and EB, but there was a sale at the KBToys on some games.

Anyone see any celebs?

No celebs, but I thought it was funny how there's a big Bud Light sign on the side of the Fleet Center. The official beer of the DNC? :lol:

Thanks, but I'll just get those two games another time, I'm saving up to get the Hard Drive Device (better than buying yet another memory card at this point for me) from FYE this week since it comes with the $30 MIR.

The Arc the Lad Collection was on the top shelf, above the gamecube games. It should be right next to those blue controllers with built in games.

Strawberries put out a bunch of dreamcast games for $2.99. Some I remember are Typing of the Dead (used), AlienFront w/mic, PSO, PSO ver. 2, and some sports games.

Oh and I price checked SOA:Legends for the Gamecube, but it's still at $43.99 even though they're only offering $8 trade in value...
