Anyway, for those who care about such things: Target in Fitchburg had 5-6 Wii U (White Basic models) tonight. Go get 'em!

Went to shopko looking for cars 2 ps3, no luck. Walked out with a bunch of cheap stocking stuffers for the kids and some toys for my chef kit for work.

The store hasn't had anything game wise for months and months and months

So Best Buy discounted all preowned psp games to 99 cents each, available in store only. Problem is inventory seems non-existent. Unless of course you are near the Grafton, WI location. Dissidia, Dragonball, and others to name a few. Too far for me to justify a drive, but if any of you are out there, try it. Online inventory says they are in stock.

Shopko is clearencing some games again. Varies by store, prices are some what high still, but check out your local store, and then keep coming back weekly to see price drops.

Ninja Gaiden - Wii U
Resistance 3

I can't recall what day Shopko does their weekly price drops. Just going to have to keep an eye open. Hopefully a few more titles sneak in there as well.

Thanks for the info.

Any CAGs from Milwaukee? Looking to do a possible meetup of sorts, and maybe look for people to help with a gaming project/blog of sorts.

Shopko has DualShock 3s clearanced at $33, new. This was at La Crosse's south-side Shopko, but it might be the case elsewhere as well.

That would be store wide. Some stores might be not $33, but $43.

If anyone here or anyone you know is interested in Magic The Gathering, Yeti Gaming, a TCG store in the STL area, is doing a Standard tournament on Saturday for an Alpha Mox Emerald that sells on the open market for just under $1000. $25 entry fee, standard constructed format with M14 legal.

So I finally talked myself into getting a Wii U, but it looks like the white version isn't being restocked anymore?

 

Has anyone happened to see one around the Madison area anywhere? I really don't want to pay $50 for extra crap I don't want/need (plus white looks better than black)

The KMart in Brookfield WI is having a Store Closing sale.  All games and accessories are 25% off.  They had some decent stuff left, I got a copy of GTA 5 for a friend for $45 (they only had one other copy left on PS3) and the last copy they had of Wonderful 101 for $45.  Might want to check it out if you're in the market for anything.

Thought I'd share this:

 

The Fort Atkinson Kmart is slated to begin its liquidation advertising campaign on Oct. 27, with a store closing date set for mid-January 2014.

Looks like I'm moving to Madison in January for my first post-grad job. :)

As a CAG, what should I know about the area?  Are any arcades still around?  I remember there being one on State Street ten years ago (Ping Time, a mix between internet gaming cafe and 80s arcade), but it closed down. :/  Now that I think about it, one of the malls used to have one too.. I wonder if that's still there.

Unfortunately there isn't much in the way of videogame arcades. West Towne had Aladdin's Castle, but that shut down before Ping Time. It's interesting, because in these random online gaming communities I participate with, there are often a high degree of random Wisconsinites. Gaming is very popular in these cold and barren lands, but I'm not aware of a physical destination.

 

The more thriving local community is board game based. With many competing Magic The Gathering shops, there's a lot to do with that scene (which, conversely, makes getting promo cards and such difficult).

 

Anyone else have any pointers? Places they'd recommend?

That place looks great!  I'll definitely check it out.

 

Might have to get into Magic the Gathering, too, if the scene is that active.  I haven't played the physical card game in nearly a decade, but I've been hooked on the Duels of the Planeswalkers series lately.

I'm about 10 minutes from there.  Might be worth checking out over a lunch hour.  

 

Holy revival of the thread, Josh.
