tell me when you decide to go!

I will

In Hampton Roads there is a pawnshop chain called Cash Converters which usually have some rare games and under priced games... Specifically in Virginia Beach, there is Cool Stuff, which are two locally owned video game stores... Cool Stuff you can find rare items and a little under priced items... Oh and Old Skool Games is overpriced on most their items compared to Cool Stuff...

I'll have to check them out. I don't get over to VA Beach much because it's a bit of a drive.

Yeah, it's quite a drive just to do it........

I probably won't go back for a while especially since I found a place to get my haircut at in NNVA.

oh the times I wish I wasn't absolutely horrible at fighting games haha :(


On a side note, the Best Buy at Pentagon City has some great guide deals:

$9.99 Hardcover:
BF3
FFXIII-2
Gear of War 3
UNcharted 3

$4.99 Softcover:
BF3
Saints Row 3
..i forget the rest. The only thing that sucks is they decided to put a HUGE C on colored paper taped to the plastic. Good luck getting it off while still keeping it sealed.

I was in that area over a week ago.

I just learned today that the DMV sucks in VA. I figure others here would probably agree with me. At the time I got there (in the afternoon), I was told that people were waiting for 1 hour and 20 minutes.......still haven't been waited on. I went ahead and waited. There were 12 counters w/ less than half of them open. Employees moved slow too. Luckily I only had to stand in line once to change my Driver's License and license plate over. It's the opposite from MD because VA mails you the ID while giving you the title while there (MD gives you an ID while there and mails you the title). I got out of there in 2 hours at least (after waiting and going through my process). Just after I got my papers handed and I paid, the power went out. Guess I somehow cursed the place. The biggest thing I hated was having to stand near the counters (MD and IN had seats on the other side of the counters).

Despite my experience not being too great, I'll admit I had a worse experience at the MVA in MD once, and the BMV in IN several times.

Anyone else have bad/good experiences at the DMV?

I agree that the DMV is slow. I think the ones in the city are by far the slowest (at least in VA) and the ones in the country areas are a little better. I went through the one is Suffolk and it was quick. I waited less then 10 min and the process took just about the same amount of time... When I went to the one in VA Beach I was there for 1 hour (for the same inquire)...

mana Knight, my experience was awful! We thought 30 mins before the place open was fine but nope, we were about 30th in line. From the time we waited to the time we had that piece of paper in our hands was ~3 hours, WTF haha. Pennsylvania's albeit much smaller, obviously, was a nice 15 mins haha.

The above method was used to obtain a copy of MGS: Subsistence Limited Edition (red box). Price: 16.99. BOOYAH.


Holy shit I'm jealous.

I'm repping Chester, and there is a play and trade over in colonial heights. I haven't been there myself, but I should stop by.
