Oh, and I am CD_Vision. I live in central Phoenix right across the street from the Paradise Valley mall. I noticed the gamestop in there has a used copy of Megaman X 7 for $17.99. Is that a good deal? It needs a new DVD case, the one it comes with looks like a dog chewed it. The slip cover is ok underneath, so with a new case it'd look new.

In the same location I picked up Metroid Prime, and Resident Evil Zero for like 5 bucks each.

The hell kind of decision is that? Let's see, what might possibly be the most scenic area of the state, or the least...

Bro if you have a choice, you should be all over Sedona.


Maybe he's waiting to see if he wins $100,000,000, making Sedona affordable.

Sedona sucks unless your wealthy and really hate talking to people in person. There are no clubs, no schools... Well.....some. Nothing is there its awful. It's pretty and stuff but there isnt anything there to do. Mesa would be better just for the fact there are more people around.

You go to Sedona for a drive, or to go camping. Its a tourist trap for people who believe in aliens too.

Hey guys, I'm in AJ myself - just moved out here recently.
There is nothing here... I'll get used to it (hopefully).

Look at the bright side Psy, you've got all the sand and dirt you could ever ask for.



I'll say this for the area I'm staying in right now, I don't have to go more than 10 minutes to get to anystore I want to hit. In atlanta (outskirts) I tank up my car about every three days. If I lived out here, I wouldn't have to for at least two weeks. Everything is so darned close by that if I weren't so completely lazy it weren't so flippin' hot, I could walk to the mall, the grocery store, et cetera.

I walk to albertsons, dollar general, good will, gamecrazy, or fry's because there all with in 1 mile of walking distance. Its good exercise especially in the 110 degree weather when your sweating your nads off :).

Yeah, I walk to the few places out here -- like work. Heh.
The heat is killing me! I'm not used to it yet.

But it's good to know there are CAGers nearby.

whoa just found this thread for the first time!! I live in Tempe and am a grad student at ASU. I don't really know any gamers out here. So it's nice to see lots of other CAGs in here! My 360 gamertag is 'dubbfoolio'. Add me to your friend's list if you play Halo 2, PDZ, or PGR3! Also I'm thinking about getting some NiWiFi games for my new DS Lite this weekend at TRU if all goes well.

I never knew about Bookman's and I'll definitely hit that up. It's pretty frustrating trying to find these clearance deals out here in AZ. Probably because all of you swoop in and take everything before I can get my lazy butt to the store. I'm new to CAG but I haven't found very many clearance titles at circuit city or Kmarts around the east phoenix valley. The best I've done is F-Zero GX (GC) for $5 from a Kmart in Mesa. I've seen a few more cheapos but nothing else I've ever been looking for. The Kmart in South Phoenix (on Baseline) literally had nothing on the list! The circuit city in Mesa has almost no DS games. They maybe had 5 titles the day the DS launched! Maybe I need to go to where the money is up in Snottsdale to find a better selection?

Any good stores around here that are stocked like trout ponds with clearance titles around here?

I've never really given much thought to checking out pawn shops but that's a pretty CAG idea! Let us know if anyone sees one with stuff that some of us AZ CAGs might like that you'e willing to pass on!

Also I'm debating on rather or not I should camp for a PS3 in November to sell for exorbitant prices on ebay! Muwahahaha! We should get a crew together.

Chandler here checking in.

We really should get local CAG'ers together if only to do some local game trading, especially after these major deals go down and some of use got left out in the cold (scalding heat).

well keep those door, windows, and blinds shut!! Makes a huge difference. I had one roommate who would just sit there by his window open all day in the August with all the cold air rushing past him without a care in the world. I couldn't fucking believe it when I saw it. I was so floored I didn't even know what to say to him. We don't all have physics degrees but shit.

Yeah... it's pretty crazy though. I don't think the bill should be over $400.00 when I have the thermostat set at 77.

I think it just takes a lot to cool down this house, vaulted ceilings and such. We're probably moving early next year anyway, so whatever.

$400.00 for AC?! Thats almost my rent! I just moved into these quite little studios. And all my AC and crap is included, so i can run my AC till the cows come home. It gets so cold sometimes and Ihave to throw on a sweater or something. haha.

AZ aint that bad, you just have to find the shady spots.

I'm from Tucson ('87-'05), but I live in upstate NY and Savannah, GA for college. Looking forward to coming home next month for a week. Mmmm, real Mexican food, Bookman's, monsoon season, desert rain scent, cactus, no grass, and dry heat.

AND FRY'S ELECTRONICS! YES!

I live around 19th and Bethany, right around that Bookman's. I work at Metro and I've got EB outside of the mall and Gamestop and Babbages inside the mall. and I have the Gamestop over by Christown. So I never have a problem finding shit in my area.

Oh yeah, I'm around there sometimes.

It's like 30 minutes from where I live now though, we moved from Glendale to fucking Surprise.

Is there any particular day that is good to go in and check? I tend to check once a week on Monday but don't generally see too much good stuff to grab.
