Happy Holidays!

Slightly late notice but if anyone is in the market for a CRT/older TV Goodwill is having a crazy sale:

All TVs, any size = 99¢ 12/26-1/2!

I picked up a nice CRT for my bedroom and a 60 inch DLP at Goodwill not too long ago so you might be able to find something good!

Visit amiibros.com for pre-order links, information, & news about amiibo figures, Nintendo Figma, World of Nintendo figures, and more!

Check out Anomaly 1729, my team's upcoming game, on Steam Greenlight!

Might have to look into that. Moving into a new place in a few weeks, and could use a new TV for my older systems.

Question for you guys. The black ops ps3 bundle is just a 160gb with the new release of the game right?

http://www.amazon.co...black ops 160gb

I threw my Brand New bundle up there 6 months ago and it sold today for $499. Should I be happy as I paid $225 (when Target had that $100 GC deal last year, or should I cancel the transaction and jack up my price to match everyone else?

It's a little doubtful. that you'll get $700. (DAMN!!) You've got profit now.

I'd just be happy you made a couple hundred off the thing, considering hardware prices usually plunge, especially those without any special paint jobs. I can't believe they're marked up that high, that's insane. Is it cause everyone hates the new diet slim, or what? I can see the backwards compatible fats selling at a premium, even with the death rate, but not these things. What gives?

Anyone know a spot in the city that still has copies of the Amazing Spiderman #700 in stock?

Dunno about physical print, but the HD version on Comixology ain't bad. $7.99 plus tax is a bit steep, though.

I check this thread every once in a while. Just wondering if anyone is in the North Shore Area of Chicagoland, maybe we can play some games or something. I stay in Glenview but work downtown pretty close to the Chicago theater. Kind of bummed I didnt get to see the Zelda Orchestra thing.

I'm looking for the print version. I haven't gotten into the digital comics yet. Thanks for the tip though. Might end up downloading it if I can't find a copy.

I've been wanting to go for a while, its been years since I've gone. Way back when we used to skip class and go play... fond memories of my youth.

Saw an e-mail for it, so here's an affiliate-less link:

Looks like you've got until the end of Wednesday night (or while "limited" supplies last) to get in on this. I'll probably pass myself.

I called Aw Yeah Comics in Skokie and he said they ran out but there's a second print coming in a week or two. I asked him what's the difference, and said it's a different character.

Most people only want the 1st print.

I still have a download code for the God of War games on PS3. I also have a sealed copy of Armored Core 5 and Ninja Gaiden 3 for the 360. Make a cash offer on these. I need some extra money and I'm open to decent offers.

Blockbuster at Irving Park and Kilpatrick is closing. Wondered how it has taken this long, but it is still sad.

I love how the sign out front says "Store closing. This location only!". Uh, this is the last location left in the city!

PS- the games are at 20% off.

Damn, I had no idea there were any left. I just noticed the one at Village Crossing in Niles (Wal*Mart) was replaced.


So that dude who got poisoned after winning the lottery and claiming his prize? Dude bought his ticket at my old neighborhood 7-11 gas station on Western and Pratt. Did a double-take when I saw a news story about it on a British web site.

And they just figured it out how he really died now. It is a messed up story. Mid 40's with no health problems and he dies right after picking up the check? Someone hasn't been doing their homework.

Galloping Ghost is holding a video game swap meet on feb 2. Regular arcade admission lets you scope out the merch, held in their private gaming rooms, and bring your own stuff to sell/trade. Plus you get to stay and game all day on the floor. 3 different time frames throughout the day in case you can only show during a certain time. I'd like to think we originated this at their place. ;)

That sounds interesting. You are right we probably gave them the idea. :)

This sounds pretty cool. I bet us CAGs have a lot of crap we could sell there. Any of you guys going to go?
