just to let everyone know, Electro Plankton might be in Games n Go at Southdale. I heard the manager talking about getting it in his store.

Where in Lino Lakes is there a new Gamestop? This is the first I have heard about this, and I'm within spiting distance of Lino Lakes myself.

Went to the Toys R Us in Blaine today. They still have some $9.99 games - not much but if anyone is looking for a cheap copy of "Doom 3" XBox or "Final Fantasy 1 & 2" GBA there were a few there now that weren't there a few weeks ago. I also saw a TON of XBox Live kits that are supposed to be 70% off since they were green stickered but I didn't find out how much they were (as I couldn't find an employee... as usual).

Anyone know if there are anymore GBA players at Woodbury or Duluth, the closing TRUs? If so, what's the % off hardware right now?

Duluth MN is now 30% off games and Systems, and 50% off accessories. They were no more GBA Players though they had Game Boy Micros in stock.

My sister just came back from <blank>, and she just told me a store is going out of business FOR SURE and signs have been verified (she knows I'm always on the lookout for cheap sales). I will be checking the store later tonight and will verify what is being clearanced. I will then fill in the <blank> sometime this weekend (don't try looking for it, it's pretty far from Saint Paul). Sorry, but I gotta get first dibs :)

I'm guessing its Suncoast as I heard the Northtown location is closing.

I'm not surprised. Like I said earlier the only customers I ever see in Suncoast I swear are people who are too stupid to realize that other places sell DVDs besides K-Mart.... or people in the retirement home age.

AW MAN! IT'S THE WRONG STORE! My sister said Sam Goody, I automatically thought Sam's "CLUB" aw shucks! me = feeling like an a$$ right now :) since I already knew Goody's were closing all over the nation.

Minnesota Public Announcement: THe newly opened, 2-3 year old Sam Goody located in Maplewood Mall in Maplewood, MN is closing. Nothing new, but there's a lot of good games to be had if it goes to 40-50% off...

This is a BIG YMMV, but I just stopped into the EB in Apple Valley to pick up a pre-order and sitting on the counter were two TOTALLY COMPLETE copies of Lunar Silver Star Story AND Lunar 2.

Was there a reprint that I was unaware of?

The manager said that they were just shipped to him today, so maybe there's some kind of stockpile somewhere that no one knew about. It could be worth a call to your local EB to see if they got some copies in as well. You may just get lucky.

And...why didn't you pick them up for yourself? :)

It's too bad I just have other games to buy instead! But.. new complete Lunar 1 and 2?

Yeah that happened to me to but with other games, they had Persona 2 and Rhapsody in stock in one day at my local gamestop both complete the sales guy said it was kind of weird they got a bunch of copies at the same time as other stores.

Well, with Working Designs closed and out of business, I doubt they were reprints. They must have found a bunch somewhere though as I recall witnessing the same thing at the Maplewood EB about a week and a half ago (couple copies of Lunar 1 and 2 on the counter...didn't look to see if they were new or preowned).
End of line.

That's actually why I wondered if they were reprints. Persona 2 and Rhapsody were both reprinted recently so they aren't really rare anymore. I've picked up Persona 2 myself and it was obviously new sold as used.

Yeah, I suppose that's true. Hard to reprint something when you're out of business. But their closing down was the first thing that came to mind...and that maybe they had some copies at their HQ or something.

After looking at the condition of the discs, Silver Star Story is MINT. Not a scratch to be seen, but Eternal Blue has visible small scratches that come with use. If they're not new they've been VERY taken care of, which is refreshing considering most used games you see are wrecked beyond description.

We have a store like that in Duluth called All Game that has nothing but classic games on west 1st Street right up one block and to the left after you pass Pizza Luce coming up on Hwy 35 its kind of hard to miss but they had a real good selection since last time I went there.

If anyone is still looking for the Xbox 360, they have the bundles in stock (as of 10 minutes ago) at the Costco in Coon Rapids. It's the $488 bundle with the included hard drive, extra controller, play and charge kit, and Project Gotham Racing 3. I don't know how many they have, as they only had one on display at the front of the store.

Yeah I believe that is the only place in the entire Anoka area that has 360s in on a near regular basis. Its not a bad deal either, but I'm going to wait until the premium can be had for around $250-300 before I jump to the 360.
