Hmm, I'm surprised that no one has posted about the Toys "R" Us blowout sale? Has anyone gone to the TRU on Western Ave? I haven't been there in quite a while, I hope there's a few Xbox deals left...

Hey chicago I need a little help here.

This may not be a video game deal but I was looking for a good gym to join.

Anyone got any news on promos or a lil local joint they know of?
I've been to a few YMCA's and it aint bad but a little crappy. Looking at a place called Xsports that my sister goes to.

So anyone got any deals on gym memberships?

The ballys in the loops always has some kind of deal going on. I don't have a membership, but one day it was $30 down and $30 a month which sounds good to me. This ballys is close to the Old Navy at washington and state.

Hello all, I'm new to Chicago, this is my second week here.
I live in 162 N. State Street and was wondering if anyone knew of any cheap places to get games, thrift stores, pawn shops and the such that is around me and such.

Thank you,
- from Ryan (the total nub)

Does anyone know what happened to the Fry's Electronics Ads that were in the Sun Times? I have not seen one since early two weeks ago. There was nothing today either. They usually have ads in Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday paper.

I have been using them for price matching purposes for years nows, basically ever since I first found out about them. I have only been to the store once or twice because it is about an hour away from me and not really worth the travel.

I know in Friday ad LocoRoco was only $29.99 and I wanted to pick it up. Does anyone know where I can maybe get scans of the Ad on the web. I searched online but could not seem to find the current ads.

I was looking for last weeks frys ad too. I didnt see it in yesterdays paper either. I hope they dont pull their ads from the papers. I was also using them for price matching.

I go to RMC in the loop.

Who's camping out for PS3?

The Fry's ads have been moved to the Tribune.

I can vouch for the fact that the Fry's ad showed up in the Tribune on the same day it disappeared from the Sun Times. I was one very happy camper, since I have a discounted Tribune subscription, and never got the Sun Times.

When it was in the Sun Times, I've always used the scans from http://tapchivitinh....ewforum.php?f=5 and have been able to price match at various stores. I found it originally by doing a google search for the terms: fry ad chicago. (This comes in very handy when trying to price match while in another store and all you have handy is an internet connection.)

Crazy! My sister is in her final year at the School of the Art Institute. Small world. Welcome to Chi-Town. Easily accessible places with thrift shops would be the Belmont/Halsted area near The Alley. It's been a while since I've been there, but last I heard the Army Surplus and thrift shops were still out there. You can take the Red Line north to the Belmont stop which puts you right there. One of my favorite places to grab quick food for lunch was Under 55 at 55 W. Monroe (Monroe and Wabash, take the escalators down) Six bucks and change gets you a meal (large variety), drink, and frozen yogurt. Decent food is everywhere in the city...it's one of the things I love about Chicago. Anything specific you're looking for?

So far I hear the Tower deals are only 30% off, which means it's about equal to BestBuy pricing. No PS3 preorder for me. I was in a training session and by the time I called the EB/GS in the area they were all booked up.

Sup everyone, I'm from chicago and usually just lurk around the forum, but i'd liek to start contributing a lil more. I wouldve added a few import shops, but it seems that the only 2 i knew of, cyberzone games (near arlington heights) and highscore (around beverly in southside), have both closed down. There was a pretty awesome store on Harlem by the HIP that sells lots of older games, but i forgot the name.

anyone know of any import shops around? I hate having to order online all the time. Anyways, keep the peace.

Videogames Etc.

It's a fantastic store. Tons of old games and consoles. Where else could you find Ninja Gaiden III for the Lynx, a sealed (!) copy of Custer's Revenge for the 2600, and Spike for Vectrex. And don't even get me started on that prototype Space Invaders cartridge from the Atari labs. (It's in the front case, check it out.)

Yes, it was quite the game... at least, after the first half ended. :) Glad they were able to pull it out.

Hey if anyone is interested. My brother just came back from gameworks (located in the woodfield mall-schaumburg) and they have Virtua Fighter 5. He said their was a decent line and that the animation was smooth and the graphics were sweet.
