The best GS in Chicago IMO is the one on Cicero over at Six Corners. Everyone who works there is cool as hell.


For those in the immediate north suburbs, the GS at the Niles Civic Center is excellent and pretty much where I exclusively go. Out northwest, I've had good luck in Schaumburg at Golf & Roselle and at Barrington and Schaumburg roads. And directly west, the store in Aurora on Rte. 59 by Meijer was a frequent hangout when I lived there.

I know this sounds lame, but if any of you Chicago CAGs would be interested in playing Uno over XBL I'd be down. Maybe we could get a couple people to play. I just got the game and am really enjoying it.

I'll be at my sisters in St Charles for Thanksgiving but I will be home later that night. A relaxing round of UNO after a big meal sounds good

Here's a random thought. Why don't we have a Chicago CAG gamer tag that people can add as a friend? Seems like a good way to keep track of everyone, see who is playing what and help gather everyone for some Chicago CAG gaming nights by using friend of a friend function.
RYOSNK, since your the defacto admin would you be down for creating the tag and hosting it?

I concur. I would do it, but I don't know.

I stopped by the CC that's closing in Niles (Village Crossing) but not much to report. I asked when the store'll be closed for good and they couldn't tell me.

Nope. Got all the stuff I wanted/needed online. Only thing that even remotely caught my eye in going through the BF sale papers was Staples offering a small APC battery backup for $20. If my wife and mother-in-law decide to brave the crowds in Decatur (wife's hometown), I'll probably stop there. Otherwise, count me out.

Did anyone lineup at the WALMART in Bedford Park by Ford City? Did they open early or what? I showed up around 3 and there was a crap-ton of people inside and a shit-load of Cops outside. Oddly enough none had taken the HP I wanted. I got to see two trans-sexual men or women, I don't know how that works, in line in front of me. Man were they uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugly.

The only item I was interested in was the APC UPS that Staples was offering for $20. I got one of the last two left at the store in Decatur (spending the holiday w/the in-laws). I call this Black Friday and overwhelming success. :D

You tried Meijer? They're pretty good about stocking stuff that you won't find at other grocery chains.

They told me they'd be closed by Dec. 31. Stuff should be 40% off now.

At the Village Crossing CC, PC games are 30% off. Console titles are 20%. Standard DVDs are 25%, and Blu-rays are 30%. There's still a fairly decent selection of movies (knocked several off my wife's Christmas list) at that location. The console games have been looted pretty heavily--anything that might be remotely good is still listed at full price, so there's not much to be had there. I mentioned in another thread in the main video game deals forum that I picked up Crysis Warhead for $20.99.
