Picked up Arc the Lad Collection at the Downtown Crossing Strawberries for $30, thanks Strider. The computer said they had 2 in stock, so there should still be 1 more.

Contra is also still there for $15 used.

Just order from ebgames.com when they restock. I think they're back in stock now.

Most of the ones I've been to have lots of them though. If I didn't already have two, I'd buy a couple. Best deal in gaming today.

Has anyone been to the Toys R Us near Alewife yet? I might head out there Monday if it hasn't been cleaned out yet.

Nah, I just went to the South Bay Mall store. No Rez or Disgaea but still some $10 goodness.

Soul Calibur (GC)--a few copies $10
King of Fighters 2000/2001--few copies $15
Deus Ex (XBOX) Plenty of copies $10
Wario World $15..I think I got the last copy
Prince of Persia XBOX 1 copy I seen $10
Beyond Good and Evil PLenty of copies $10 (XBOX)
Zoocube (GBA)
Sneakers
Dark Angel
Can't remember the rest I seen in the bins, mostly left overs from the BOGO sale.


I heard that in October they will reduce these prices even more so I'm going to get what I really want and wait for the others to drop.

Went to Alewife and South Bay Toys R Us's.

Alewife had next to nothing. A few Dreamcast leftovers, picked up Death Crimson OX and Typing of the Dead, rang up b1g1 free but at $10. They did have VF4 Evo but I didn't buy it.

South bay had a few copies of Deus Ex, Silent Hill 3, Clock Tower 3, Crimson Skies... However, the cashier demanded to see an ID before I could buy the games. ID? What the hell? I didn't have my ID on me so she only let me buy Crimson Skies. I've never heard of such bullshit in my life. I'm 21 and I look old. This is not beer and cigarettes here... Is being an asshole a prerequisite for working at Toys R Us?

Only non-sports DC title I saw there was Illbleed. Again, couldn't buy it.

Didn't see King of Fighters or Beyond Good and Evil.

They did have Secret Weapons Over Normady but I already have a copy.

Toys R Us can kiss my ass, and this sale aside, I'll never shop there again.


UPDATE: Had a friend pick up Silent Hill 3 and Clock Tower 3, they seemed to be out of Deus Ex. And they didn't ask her for her ID.

If anyone is interested, Strawberries downtown had a couple of (new) copies of Castlevania: Circle of the Moon for $15.

Just my luck I don't have any money for another 2 weeks.

I went to the TRU in Dedham last weekend and they had plenty of .1 guides and several 50% off games including Prince of Persia, Deus Ex, and Beyond Good and Evil, and Fatal Frame (all XBOX). The woman behind the counter said she saw Rez recently but neither of us could find it on the floor or behind the counter.

What's up guys?
I haven't been around for a while, been busy lately.
With what you ask? Law school, I'm at Suffolk.

Anyway, I was wondering if anybody knows of any deals for Street Fighter Anniversary Collection and/or Phantom Brave?

Thanks.

Outside of Target Rainchecks and trades in I can't think of any. FYE should carry SF: AC so you might want to go to EB or Gamestop and get either Black & Bruised (Gamecube only), Go Go Hypergrind, Pro Race Driver (XBOX only), or Motor Trend Lotus Challenge (XBOX only). These bad boys cost no more than $15 at EB or Gamestop and FYE takes them for $27 dollars in credit. Just add the additional $4.50 to cover the rest. that's what I plan on doing later on this week.

So you're telling me that if I go to EB or Gamestop, buy a copy of Black and Bruised (GC) for $15, and then take it to FYE and trade it in, I'll get $27 in return or a $12 profit?

So, in essence, I could do that 3 times and then I would have made $36 in profits and then pick up SF:AC and still walk away with about $4 in profit?

That sounds too good to be true. The only problem is that I don't know of any FYE in my area. The closest one I can think of is in the South Shore Plaza Mall. Conveniently, there's an EB right next to it, haha.

But thanks for your input man, that was great. If I was a girl I'd let you do things to me. AHAHAHA

It's nothing to get too exicted over but if your ever in the area, you might wanna check out the Circuit City in South shore Plaza.

They still have games from the $5 clearance in stock....and they still have their outdated price tags.

The selection of games aren't worth going crazy over. It's more like a bunch of Dreamcast games, Soul of the Samurai, New Legends, Evergrace, etc.

I did see some copies of Silent Scope Complete there. Still marked at $29.99 and it will ring up as $10 at the registers.




Sam Goody in the mall also has a selection of used games.
A couple of used Breath of Fire 5's for $13
A used Castlevania: COTM for about $13
A used R.A.D. for $14.

FYE in Arsenal Mall has a new Marvel vs Capcom 2 (PS2) for A$30. A new XBOX version is $70 (!) No, I don't know why either.

Oh yeah, Record Town (aka FYE) in the Copley Mall is closing down. Right now everything is 20-50% off.

All games are 20% off and accessories are 25%...I expect these numbers to drop within the next few weeks.
