im from brattleboro vermont next to the border of nh and there is a great gs in hinsdale nh right next to the vermont border this id the biggest gamestop ive ever been to and the staff is half bad either


I've been to this store, its huge. By far, the largest GS that I have ever been in. The staff has always seemed kind of meh to me, but its better than some of the other incompetent idiots I've seen around.

If anybody needs/wants a Wii, RUN to the TRU in Salem, NH. They had like 15 left 30 minutes ago. They were picked clean of all the b2g1 Wii games though.

In case anyone needs the Rock Band bundle for 360, I confirmed by phone that the Wal-Mart in Plymouth and Claremont have more than 1 each. I'm going to pick one up after work.

Plymouth had 5+, Claremont only had 1 or 2 and is closer, so I'm going to call and confirm one more time before I leave.

Claremont ended up having about 10 360 RB bundles last night. 9 after I left :D

It's weird that there's so many there but absolutely none in all of West Leb. 4 stores all sold out.

Does anybody know of a good TV repair place within reasonable distance of Brookline? I've got weird sploches on my HDtv and I was told by a relative to try and get it degaussed.

I don't know if tv repair places normally do this, but is there any chance at all they'd send someone to my house? It's going to be a bitch trying to safely put this this in my car...

Sweet, I used to live out in Hanover up until 2002. All we had back then was the KMart and a BJ's in West Leb. Good to see they're expanding.

Keene gamer here, though I'm from Derry.

The amount of locations available in Manchester is decent, though it's all gamestops by now. Keene isn't quite as good, with a target, a circuit city, and 2 gamestops.

I'm going to give the one in Hindsdale a try soon though, after hearing about it on here.

Well, glad to hear there's something at least. I'll be going to FPU next year, so I'll be in Keene a lot.

I'm from Troy myself which is also right down the road from Keene so yeah, limited to pretty much the two Gamestops. The GS in the Colony Mill used to have some decent people working there but they've moved on.

Last I knew Keene also had an independent store, Game Express or something of the like, does anyone know if its still around? I remember I got some decent deals on a bunch of Dreamcast stuff there years back.

Sweet, someone else that is actually in the same area as me. I go to the Hinsdale GS more than the Keene two. There is a lady at the Colony Mill one that I swear to god hates me.

Are you thinking of the game store that was in that little strip mall plaza near Friendlys? I dont remember the name of that store but it was awful. I shopped there once and got a defective N64 game that did not work out of the package (which is really rare from what I've heard). When I took it back to the store (about 90 minutes after I bought it) the owner told me it "wasn't his problem". When I persisted in asking for him to give me a replacement, he physically grabbed me by the back of the neck and dragged me to the door and pushed me out.

What a jackass. No wonder that place went out of business in less than a year. Good riddance

I called the cops on that guy when he put his hands on me, but of course the cops wouldn't listen to a kid over a business owner. They basically patted me on my head and sent me on my merry way. I told the cops that the store had video security cameras and they should check the tapes to see I was telling the truth and they said they would look into it (which we all know is code for "I don't have time to deal with you right now kid. Go away.)

Micro44 - I do recall the place you're talking about, though the name escapes me. I was never too fond of it, I think the only thing I ever bought from there was Mega Man Legends back on the PlayStation. The guy who ran it always struck me as shady. There is another place though, it's on West Street right off the rotary at the head of the square in downtown Keene, right next to a comic book shop. It's called Game Express, but I haven't been there in a while so I'm not sure if its still open. If they are I'm surprised, they've been there since just before EB Games went into the Colony Mill. The guy that runs that place was always friendly enough, if you bought enough he'd give you a deal on it. Might be worthwhile to check out if they're still around.

Antic - I wonder if I'm thinking of the same person here. Last summer both my sister and myself picked up a bunch of Nintendo DS stuff (system included) and there was this rather large girl working there that pretty much flatly refused to give us any help, she just sat in a corner and played her DS while making the trainee run the computer system he obviously hadn't been properly trained on. It took us both a half hour to check out which is insane. Later I went back to pick up Bioshock on release day and got the same waste of space behind the counter. I asked for the game and she replied "Did you pre-order it?" and I said "no" and she responded "then no". I then asked "do you know anywhere else in town that has it" and she just said "no, everyone's sold out". After a five minute drive to the Target near Home Depot I had a copy in my hands, one of the ten they had in stock. Suffice to say I didn't return to that EB until I heard that they had fired her for being rude to customers.

I hope that's the person you're thinking of, it's a shame to see more dead weight working there. Our game store options are rather limited in this area and, as much as I hate it sometimes, EB / Gamestop comes in as the only option in a crunch.

I'll have to check it out next time I make it up to Keene. I live in Rindge so we go up there at least a few times a month to visit my parents and dine out.

I wish it was the same girl, but it isn't unfortunately. She got pissed at me two seperate occasions when I was using the 25% on used games coupon (xbox once, PS2 the next). I'm not into buying games that look like someone stepped on it and spun around in a circle on it. I had got 5 games and two of them were like this. I said I didn't want them, and she gave me the whole "it's really not a big deal with the condition, it's guaranteed to play fine" angrily spiel. I said that I'll still pass, and she started huffing and puffing at me, and then looked at her co-worker as she started mumbling. I bought the other ones, and she then started talking shit loudly about how ridiculous it was that I cared about the discs as I walked out.

The second incident that happened involving her came when I was picking up Suikoden IV and FFXII Collector's Edition with the coupon. Suikoden IV was fine, but the problem happened with Final Fantasy. She searched through the counter, and only pulled out the game disc. She started to put it in the case to start to scan it, and I asked her "isn't it two discs?" She replied with "yeah, but I can't find it. The disc in there is for the regular edition too, but it's ok because the content is the same". I told her I didn't want it because there really isn't a reason to pay more for a game if I don't even get the extra content. She pulled the same huffing and puffing, and I just got out as soon as I could with Suikoden.

I barely ever go to that one now. I only go there if I'm looking for a game that isn't anywhere else. Heh, sorry for my long story.

I only tried buying something from the Colony Mill EB once, and they gave me a hard time there so I never went back. I was buying a used copy of Metroid Prime Pinball for DS for my wife and I to play. When the girl was taking the used game out to put in the case there was no manual. I asked if there was a manual for it somewhere and she said "It's Pinball...if you don't know how to play pinball by now a little book isn't going to help you."

I asked for a number to call her manager to complain about her attitude and she just threw the game on the counter and walked to the back room and never came back out. I waited for about 3 minutes and just gave up and left.

I have had pretty good luck at the other EB down by Home Depot.

The old place you guys are thinking of was called Game Pad I think. Went there once after I got my PS1 then it disappeared.

Game Express is okay. It smells like a pet store because of all the cats they have. Either that or it's just one cat that absolutely destroys the litter box. It's full of new PS2 and Xbox games that are never going to sell. I stop by every now and then and I see the exact same copies of old games sitting on the shelves for $20+, most of which you can get anywhere else for a lot less. I suppose it's good if you want something lie Psi-Ops or War or the Monsters new. I rarely buy anything there. Probably only four or five things in the past five or so years. Not many PS3/360 games.

They are pretty cool about trades though. They don't screw you as badly as GameStop. I had a new Mass Effect LE still in the shrink wrap and since I had $8 in credit already, he gave me $52 so I could basically get GTA4 for free when it came out. I always kind worried about losing out on my credit though if they went out of business. And they print out credit reciepts and they like to hold onto them while giving you nothing to prove you have credit there other than giving them your name. Kinda shady if you ask me. I got them to give me a reciept though.

Their hours suck. Every other time I go there, there is a sign that says, "out to lunch, be back at 1" or whatever. A few weeks ago I was looking for Twin Snakes for GC and around 3:30 there was a sign that said "be back at 4". I went back at around 4:45 and they were closed. It's like they don't want me to shop there. Right now they are open only on Thursdays for a few hours or something because of a "family emergency."
