Good news. These will be cheap. Not 99c cheap, but $20 or so is good enough for me to get the game. It also means that the game will be discounted on regular sale regardless even sooner. That was pretty much a virtual guarantee with Squeenix, but now even more so with this happening.

Target is selling Voodoo2 16mb video cards for $177.99

Just a heads up, YMMV I went to my local Target and they said they haven't even sold this card in years let alone for 178 bucks

You should've checked Babbage's instead.

I loved Babbage's and Software Etc. but the nearest to me when growing up was Electronics Boutique.  I'm still sad I threw away some old christmas catalogs from there.

 

I called EBGames Electronics Boutique until Gamestop dropped the EBGames branding.

 

I have fond memories of picking up my Voodoo 5 5500 from there back when it came out.

 

EDIT:

Found this Software Etc christmas catalog from 1994. :D

I remember when the tiny mall locations had walls of PC games.  First ever purchase from them was Baldur's Gate 2 which may have been the first PC game I ever bought for myself too.

Oh and it was also my first lesson in editions full of useless extras.  Totally bought it because the box was bigger and more impressive and the stuff sounded good at the time but I remember most of it being pretty meh other than the map.

For me it was Wolfenstein 3D from those same racks.

I also bought a football game that I cant for the life of me remember the name of, but it was awesome at the time. Could design your teams and name all the players which was a big deal in 1993 as far as I remember. I made my HS team in the game and all the local schools.

I bought a retail PC game once. Unreal Tournament. Took a selfie with it (back when cameras were cameras and phones were phones) and sent it to my French online girlfriend who was besties with an ugly girl who went to my school who pretended to be a hot girl whose lies were revealed when I called her on my Nokia 5110 and her phone rang during art class. The ugly girl made up a lot of stuff about me and tried to get Eminem-looking kids to fight me, and my French gf stopped coming online. She was real, we had webcam dates over 56k modems.

 

Lesson: Don't take selfies with retail PC games or you lose your online girlfriends/friends in general. MYSTERD

You lie because selfies weren't even invented until 2007.

Electronics Botique... I can't remember my first actual games.. they were in a stash of porno floppies where the girls were ASCII... but I remember Wolf 3D.  Then I spent all my money on Xwing and all those 3.5's.  I think right around then was Rise of the Triad as well.  Privateer.. man.. so many old memories.  Then Electronics Botique became EBGames... and shelves shrank.  I bought the 6 disc collectors ed of Baldur's Gate... man...

 

Now... I have more games than that on my phone :P

 

P.S.  Funny enough.. I still have all those games.  :)  And their disks.  But alas, not their boxes.  Didn't put THAT much thought into the collection.

Brodate:

 

We played Life is Feudal and as expected it sucked.  Like if you missed the event because you didn't have it then consider yourself lucky.  The reality of being a CAG is most of us refuse to pay a lot for a good survival game (ARK) so we spend 100s of dollars on bundles with bad survival games and play those instead.  I wouldn't have it any other way.

 

The bros joined some server called old geezers.  We spawned on an island that was shaped like triple lion heads.  We all spent a long time trying to convene in one spot.  Four of us got there and proceeded to chase and punch a deer for 30 minutes until it ran away.  Then we split up and I made a campfire and sleeping bag near a lake and called it quits.  

 

11/10 would play again instead of reminisce about how I used to buy clearance PC games at KB Toys.  Coaches Club Football FTW!

I want to forget I ever played that. I think that might be the most boring game we've played so far, or maybe it's just not my type of game.

No, it was that boring.  I mean, it might also not be your kind of game but there was zero risk of conflict when the only other living thing was a single deer.  It was just a grass and stick gathering simulator.

I joined in late, but I got a taste of it. It really suffers from the convoluted control scheme. It took me 5 minutes to figure out how to use the mouse to look (accidentally hit TAB when I spawned). It tries to do a lot, but it's really a fairly dull world. I mean, it looks okay, but it's empty. I WISH I'd seen a deer to punch.

 

The rest of the time I was playing I gathered sticks and tried to figure out how to find iron. I saw one other person. Life is Feudull.

i actually planned to attend the brofest as i actually have that game.  but im running on less than 5 hrs sleep in the last 2 days and crashed,  I probably would have fallen asleep and you guys could hear me snore on discord.

 

In KB toys memories,  used to scope the clearance table for atari 2600 and intellivision carts after the first game crash.   picked up stuff for like a buck.

NVM - It happened, but few knew about it and those who did, did not share the info.

I think he might be kidding with MysterD. The Tomb Raider promotion was just launched earlier today, or earlier the 7th rather after the Dirt keys were dried up. The codes are listed for $59.99 on Newegg, but that obviously could just be a corrected version.
 
At any rate, I was up last night during the Dirt Rally umm rally, and never saw Tomb Raider mentioned on any of the sites that Dirt Rally was, so if it did happen very few got in on it i.e. it wasnt on SlickDeals or Reddit.

It was posted on Neogaf after the glitch ended.
