Yeah, I went to the Plano Entertainmart today, it was pretty cool. I got Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance for $6 with original box and manual and Fire Emblem DS for $10. I also got some CDs too. Worth going to. Only sale going on was 3 DVDs for $12 in this box.

Just make a DFW/metroplex thread. I can't stand it when people dumb it down to just "Dallas"

Dunno about flipping, but Professor Layton (DS) gets $30 for trade-in, which is a ton for a game that old that doesn't have Mario in the title, IMO.

You would be better off getting one from ebay.

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

I plan on moving to McKinney, TX (just north of Dallas) this summer (June most likely). I know there's a Half Price Bookstore up there as I have visited McKinney in the past. There's also a bunch of people advertising to sell games on Craigslist.

By the way, I'm originally from San Antonio...really miss Texas! The food especially (Tex Mex) and anybody who's been to San Antonio will tell you that it's the absolutely best place to eat!

Hope you guys keep this thread open/current...want to hit all the game "hot spots" in/around Dallas and find some bargains :-)

Saw Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time at the Wal Mart in The Colony (4691 State Hwy 121) for $26. They had about 4 copies left. It was double priced, though - sticker on the game said $32, but the sticker on the rack said $26. I'm sure they'd honor the $26 price in the event it rang up incorrectly.

Anyone know where to unload unwanted game guides? I need to free up some space not to mention they weigh a ton. I already sold some back at Half Price Books.

CGX will give you next to nothing for them... not even worth the gas. May just go to a different HPB and unload the rest there.

Have any other people here had bad experiences at the Hwy 75 Best Buy in McKinney, TX (not to be confused with the SW Mckinney store off of 121) regarding @gamer and Gamer RZ certificates/coupons?

Every instance that I've tried to use the @gamer and RZ coupons, I've had the employee get the manager (short, blonde) and she would tell me that the coupon voids itself because full MSRP was originally 59.99 and if I insist on using the coupon that she will have to manually mark it up to that. I'm not talking about "sale" prices, but ANY game even if the current MSRP was 39.99-49.99. I'd like to know if other people are having the same problem before I call to complain.

Used to live in Richardson, in between two Blockbusters before they closed down. Now I'm living near Dallas, near two Blockbusters, a Best Buy, Gamestop, 3 malls, and an Entertainmart.

Right now, I'm hoping for a good deal for Target so I can use my gift card. I know there's Halo Reach and Fable 3 out, but those games never piqued my interest.

From Arlington here. I hit up entertainmart often, one on cooper and one in Dallas. Also movie trading co. Is a good place to find some deals, the one on cooper next to the tru even had a collectibles section with rare toys.

I've been in tx 2 years, if anyone wants to go to traders village sometime let me know we can hang out. Always looking for new friends, I'm 27, into all things nerd.

evolution games in fort worth is a great place, has decent deals on games. target clearance is always a good place to hunt for gems as far as clearance goes. i picked up phantom hourglass about a month ago for 4 bucks new. super good deal. i even go as far as looking in the furniture displays in case people try to hide things. and more often than not, i find clearanced electronics.

Target... and Half Price Books... lol... not sure any of the local places. I've been to Entertainmart but they tend to price their games according to online prices so it's not really a deal to be had there IMO.

Trader's Village used to be a good place for all things, but more and more it's becoming like a trashy/cheap place IMO. People selling cheaply made products and overcharging for used stuff. But it is a spectacle if you want a place to walk around on the weekends (Friday to Sunday).

I never liked Hastings for video games, but if you pass one they sometimes have great deals on used DVDs (Buy one, get one for $1). There's one in Denton and one in Waxahachie... don't know if any of those are on your way.

Yeah we have Hastings, and I've only found one meh deal there (Alpha Protocol for $9.99 lol) Opening up Saturday is Game X Change, not sure how good they are but I'll check them out. Defiantly will hit up all the Targets I pass, and Half Price Books.

Never heard of Game X Change. There used to be some small retro game chain here, but I heard the prices were always through the roof. I also don't get out to Dallas at all so someone else can fill you in. I stay in Fort Worth.Arlington.Grand Prairie area for the most part.

Over the course of a weekend a few months ago I visited every Target in the DFW Metroplex, ALL 44 of them, I skipped on the Burleson location because I had no luck at any of them and Burleson is very out of the way. I've also been to every Sears in the DFW metroplex over the past 12 months give or take, found some ok deals at a few. I seem to always be a step behind on the best deals unfortunately. Do we just live in a crappy region or am I really getting beat out on some of these deals? Sound off DFW CAGS, what are some of the best deals you've found in the metroplex? I'd have to say my best deal was the $20 Band Hero bundle at Sears a while back. That and the dozen or so penny guides I've scored at Best Buy about a year and a half ago, just sold my last two on Amazon last week.
