In case anyone in the area was interested in this game.
Catherine for Xbox 360 is $27.99 at the Best Buy in Oswego, not sure if that's the price at all Best Buy's or just a clearance price.

I made the switch over a year ago, and the changeover was painful to say the least. Line changes could make switching back to standard DSL or phone lines much more difficult as well (esp. after the first 30 days), and they charged several hundred dollars to upgrade the in-house wiring, too.

I like faster speeds, but that experience highlights to me why telecom companies are so hated these days.

Hey All,
Just got out of Frys in Downers Grove IL and they had about 20-30 Diablo III collector editions just sitting on the shelf.

I grabbed one without a pre order.

just a heads up


this message is good as of 8:10AM (when I left)

We have U-Verse internet and it is decent so far. 12 MBPS for $24.95 a month. It comes with a free Linksys E1000 router, but there are much better routers so I am planning to upgrade soon.

Nice price! How did you get that rate -- as a new customer? Wondering how to get off local phone service & stick with just U-Verse internet at the same speed.

My Groupon for today is $20 for an all-day game pass @Gameworks in Schaumburg. I can't remember if a Chicago CAG meetup was held there or not.

Also, Disc Replay is going to carry new games. Yay?

It didn't seem nearly as bad as everyone expected it to be. I'm just glad it's gone, so I don't have to hear about it any longer.

Is anybody going to this year's Video Game Summit? Here is their website. I've never been to this, but its about 30 minutes away from me so I might check it out.

I think it's $24.99 for the first 12 months, otherwise it's $48.00

I'll need some leverage with AT&T / U-Verse to switch services at a good price, so thanks for the info / feedback. You're Too Cool! 8-)

Hey Guys I got a quick question for you.

I'm thinking about driving to that Video Game Etc store located on 4353 N Harlem Ave, Norridge, IL 60706 with some friends cause I got some spare graduation money to spend.

Its about 40 minutes away and I was just wondering how their retro game selection is? From the reviews I've read their selection is just as good as People Play games and the prices are pretty reasonable for the most part. Just wondering how everybody's thoughts are about this store. Thanks :D

Last time I was there a few months ago their selection was abit thin on what I was looking for, which was turbografx, Saturn and neo geo stuff. But they do have decent prices overall.

I am normally not negative about anything but this convention was so bad last year you couldn't pay me to go back.

E3, apparently, may leave LA next year... and one of the possible new locations include Chicago. Please, pretty please, I hope that's the case.

It would only be temporary until construction on the L.A football stadium is finished. Even if it comes to Chicago (McCormik place would be great), we still can't get in.

It was pretty much just one room with old systems that consisted of ataris mostly. you just sat down and played whatever game they had in. that was the whole convention.

Hey all, I was wondering if anyone on this thread knew anything about the Swap-O-Rama off of 294 in Alsip (I think). I'm going to be in that area this weekend, so I didn't know if it was worth hitting up or not.

It's an alright flea market, haven't been there in years but that was before i collected. But, you should find some solid finds possibly.

I drove passed said Swap-o-rama last week when I was en route to pick up an Xbox kiosk I bought off Craig's list. Anyway I've never been but I frequent the Maxwell street market in Chicago and the 7 Mile Fair in Wisconsin. As for meet up I'm down as long as everyone promises not to be a serial killer or face eating cannibal.

It's gone to shit over the past 10 years. I still have fun going though. Never know what you are going to see. Watch your pockets

That bad, huh? Well, I'm still up in the air about it, but considering I'm in the area for a bachelor party, I can't guarantee I'll be up for it anyway in the morning.
