Page 155 of the latest (June) issue of Computer Shopper (obtained through a free subscription courtesy of a link here) has CAG listed as a topnotch site to find more game deals. It's nice to see the site get some more attention.

That's how I found out about this site in the first place, through a magazine mention. I think it was CGW. Its pretty cool that Cheapy is getting all this free advert.

EGM guided me to this site, and I haven't bought a $40 or $50 game since

EGM all the way, yet another reason why it's the best gaming mag. It lead me to the best gaming site ever.

egm for me. it IS the best game magazine.

Same here, EGM all the way. I would say that Gamepro is second but I've noticed lately they've been too generous with their review scores.

I found CAG from surfing the "Hot Deals" forum on Anandtech. I believe it was the deal where there was a 33% coupon for select games. I think CheapyD posted it himself. The two games listed that I wanted were Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga and Disgaea. I got such a good deal I decided I wanted to get another copy of each, but alas. Those 2 choices were gone. Still probably the best deals I have scored ever if you don't count eBay.

I first saw CAG a week or so after it first was born, but didn't sign up to the forums about a month after because I was so damn lazy.

I saw a pic of a wrestler or boxer and he had it one his back! Pretty strange. It might have been in the EGM though.

i also found it through fw, although it was for a different deal :)

Well, to be honest, it's hard for people to be outraged about something once they know the facts. And it takes more effort to dig up facts than be outraged. ;)

I got here from Gamefaqs. I think I signed up for the message boards almost right away, but I waited awhile to start posting.

I kept seeing this site mentioned on other websites, like ign, gamefaqs, magic box international, etc., multiple times so that I HAD to look. That and the name is so catchy. :lol:

This place was actually mentioned in EGM? I'm surprised, but then again I'm too cheap to buy a video game magazine...websites are so much better, and have much more current information.

djwins (If I recall correctly, that's CheapyD when he roamed the GameFAQs world!) had a small following of CAGs on GameFAQs just after this site launched, so through getting my attention in sigs, I came here and haven't been to the FAQs boards since!
