I paid 35 plus tax. If you want it how about 35 even? The outer sleeve is beat, but it's still sealed inside.

Otherwise, anyone got any tasty trades?

Any Chicago CAGs looking for one of the 2TB hard drives at Target, or the 1TB portable one, go to the Addison store. After striking out at a couple of stores this morning I hit the jackpot. 2 full endcaps at 5pm. They must've had a hundred of them easy. This company's distribution methods are baffling. Store in Evanston today had 0 and the guy told me they were gone by 4:15am, as they only had a handful. Also grabbed an Endless Ocean Blue World for 7.48 but it was the only copy I saw.

Damn, I don't get paid until Friday and I'm sure that the price will go back up by then. :cry:
I'm still looking for a copy of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 but haven't had any luck.

Saw this story on Kotaku and thought it'd be helpful for some of us. it's about the Galloping Ghost. Apparently the second biggest arcade in the U.S. and right in our backyard.

Very nice. Great to know that we have a video game gold mine but sad that the rest of the country misses out really.

I don't mind the snow until mid January, then I wish it would burn.

Glad someone else got the thread going again. I was going to post something the other day.
I've been meaning to check out a BBV by my school but 1.) Fucking homework 2.) This snow is really cramping my style. I agree, though, about the snow being cool for oooooh, another month.
There's been some pretty good deals lately, but nothing too crazy on games I've been dying to play. Now that I'm a broke student I look for deals on Goozex more than anywhere else. Got Medal of Honor coming in the mail soon. Is it as bad as they say?
Yes, I'm bored.

I'm planning on visiting the Galloping Ghost next Saturday, sometime after noon, if anyone else wants to hang out.

I don't have anything to trade, though.

I just checked FB and Doc said Killer Instinct is up. Saturday would work for me.

Did you guys ever get together for the December 4th meet up?

I've only been the one time. I'm bringing a co-worker and his 17-year-old son next weekend. I don't think the boy has ever been to a real arcade before. Plus, I'm excited to play some new games that may not have been working last time.

I actually went about 2 weeks ago with a friend of mine and set the house record on Super Puzzle Fighter :) My friend starting playing Killer Instinct like it was '95 again, but unfortunately it all slipped away from me with that game. Still love that soundtrack though. I'm always down to go, so if you guys will be there I'll try and swing by. Unemployment brings with it boredom, plus I just love the place. BF I scored a decent haul for myself, but missed out on anything really great to trade. Was hoping to land some LOTR Trilogies, but couldn't get it to work out.

Yeah, well, this ain't happening Quinn, you jackass. Like a couple million people are gonna say "here's all the money I owe in taxes for the past 6 years". I'm pretty sure I don't even HAVE enough money to pay taxes on everything from 2004 to now, especially the way this city rapes us on tax as it is. What I'm not getting from this is if tax is gonna get charged on Amazon going forward after Jan 1 for Illinois residents. If so, that's gonna suck. Thanks for the post anyway, it's both funny and infuriating at the same time.

As the article says, I would not worry about it unless you have made thousand + dollar orders. More than likely very few people will be approached about this. Instead of enforcing internet sales tax, they should tax/increase rates on things/persons which are loaded, idiotic, or those things which can be proven as having a detrimental affect on society. Alcohol, people making huge amounts of money per year (This especially), tanning salons (yay, I want skin cancer), and gun sales are a few things I would not mind being taxed or taxed at a higher rate.

If you guys are still thinking of going to Galloping Ghost this Saturday, there will be tournaments that night at 8pm for both Killer Instinct and Super Street Fighter 4, if anyone is interested. Prizes to the winners.

Man I wish I still knew the KI moves. It uses a Street Fighter pattern doesn't it? If the weather holds out, I will try to make it.
