No go at Cicero Sam's as of last night anyway. Tried getting Need For Speed PS4 but it rang up regular price.

Meijer in Aurora...back on the endcap between DVDs and office supply aisle they had some Xbox, Wii and PS3 games for $2.99.

Wii: some Bakugan game
Ps3: Kane and Lynch 2
Xbox: K&L 2, blood drive, Disney sing it

Nothing great but cheap. Lots of K&L, but kind of limited on the others

I'm in Japan for a few more days and returning to Chicago in March. Anyone want something from over here? Pm me if you are interested with title and price max. I'm not looking to get rich. Just add $5 to what I pay. I love this community and want to give back. Maybe Japanese PSN cards are easy.

I remember recording a mini doc about the making of MK3 from TV but sadly I lost the VHS long ago. All I remember from it was that the guy who played sub zero also played a bunch of the other characters and was a Chicago cop.

A bunch of them also worked at the Lincoln Park Lakeshore Athletic Club and I think I saw the guy who played Kano once.

Been WAAAAAY too long since I've visited this site.  It's been an insane few months, but I haven't forgotten about the Chicago CAGs.

 

A lot's happened to me since last summer, some really bad, some really good.  I'm still gaming, though, so that part hasn't changed, at least.

 

I also have a new job at a brewery in the city, and I'm moving a little further into the burbs, so meetups will be a little easier for me to attend.  There's a new girl in the picture, too...and yes, she's a gamer.  And not just a girlfriend gamer, either.

 

Hope things are treating everyone well here.  Hopefully they figured out the mobile version of the site, because I hated it before.

Who's up to going dumpster diving with me at GameStop in Niles once this weather clears up? I figure we can help each other find some neat stuff and whatnot.

Anybody planning on going to the Midwest Gaming Classic, I've been meaning to go for years. Maybe we can make a meet of it?

Keep forgetting to mention it, but a Videogames Then & Now, like the one on Harlem near the HIP, opened right around the corner from me in Des Plaines. It's pretty much just off the I-90 Elmhurst exit, easy to get to and plenty of parking. Hadn't expected to see something like that pop up. Haven't been in yet (pretty much 100% Steam these days), but there is a Yelp listing and review already: http://www.yelp.com/...now-des-plaines

 

I drive by basically every day, so if someone's looking for something specific they want me to check on, PM me.

Hello. I haven't been active much in the past 2-3 years because I've been living in Seoul, Korea. I'll be returning next month and would like to be more involved with this community. Sounds far-fetched because Korea is not quite Japan, but if anyone can think of something you would like from here that's not available in Chicago, let me know and I'll see what I can do. Not looking to get rich, just thought I'd offer.

I hope I can meet some of you guys when I get back. I will be living in the near North burbs, not far from the dumpster diving location of Niles Gamestop. ;)

 

Holler.

Hey all.

 

Next Saturday, I'm moving to Lisle, so if anyone in the area knows of a good thrift store or game place in that area, let me know.  Looking forward to some new stomping grounds.

Anyone seen any PS4s recently? Now that I have the money to buy one, I can't find one anywhere.

Kmart is the only store I have seen them in stock. Make sure you sign up for their free rewards program first if you plan to buy one. They have electronics coupons that may work on consoles. I bought the PS3 last of us bundle and ended up getting about $35-$45 back in points on a $200 purchase.

I stopped by the Sears that's closing on State St. in Chicago last week. Game stuff was 30% off retail across the board--so there was a healthy supply of $140 3DS XLs (Blue, Red, and Pink) to be had. Also one remaining $42 copy of New Super Mario Bros. U. Nothing spectacular.

 

Apparently there will be at least one more price drop before the store closes at the end of the month, but nobody was sure how big a drop it would be or when it would happen. I'm planning to stop by at some point(s). I'll share anything exciting I encounter.

 

Edit: Should also mention that the 30% off seemed to apply to points cards as well--though all they seemed to have left were some Wii Points (not eShop) cards. Didn't see any Sony or MS-related cards.


Shameless self-promotion: I write words at the Everybody's Talking at Once blog and cast pods on the ETAO Podcast. They're about games, among other things!
