Anybody in Huron, there is new management at Gamestop. Seems much better then the previous one. Check it out, they have a very good selection for used games.

I don't browse the pawn shops that often. I probably should, seeing as they might have the Wavebirds I'm looking for.

Have you been to Game Exchange up by Wal-Mart? I find they have a decent selection of retro games (although it's overpriced).

Yeah, Game Exchange has some incredibly rare games sometimes but HOLY HELL they are expensive. Still, it's nice being able to see the condition of the games in person instead of having to trust someone on eBay.

Has anyone seen a Wavebird around here lately? I think I have a verifiable physiological need for it at this point.

I haven't seen one at a retail store in forever. The pawn shop next to KMart had some a week and a half ago or so.....

D'oh! Checked it out, on the off-chance they still had them. No luck. Actually, I was rather disappointed with their selection, but for Pawn Shops, I suppose I should get my hopes too high.

The pawn shops have REALLY gone downhill as of late, video game wise. It's like they aren't even buying stuff that isn't PS3/360/Wii anymore.

So, for those in the Rapid City area: a new game store has opened up near First Western Bank on Omaha street. Play 'n Trade, an upcoming gaming franchise, has a really cool atmosphere, very helpful staff, and an ample selection of video games. And, they're supposed to be organizing tournaments in the future. From what I've seen so far, they are a great establishment! Here's the address:

1101 W. Omaha St. Suite #3 (Next to Wags 'n Whiskers)
Rapid City, SD
57701

I know this sounds like an ad! Sorry about that!

I checked it out last week. VERY nice setup!

Hopefully they can last in the Gamestop-dominated enivornment.

To the RC people:

K-Mart finally moved some of their behind-glass wares to the clearance section. Some notable titles:

Harvest Moon - 19.97
Shadow of the Colossus - 19.97
Viva Pinata (Special Edition) - 19.97
Sonic Mega Collection - 9.99
Sonic Adventure DX - 9.99
Elite Beat Agents - 12.97

Those are some of the ones that caught my eye. Forgive me for not looking at the X-Box stuff much, but I'm a Nintendo guy.

Rapid City K-Mart had a metric ton of games on clearance. Unfortunately I was running late for work so I didn't get a chance to see the prices, but if there's anything noteworthy I'll post back for the crickets that are likely reading this.

chirp chirp

THREE YEARS since the last post. That is almost incomprehensible! This could be like a time capsule of sorts....

I can't believe I posted almost seven years all and there's been one post since then. Wait, I can actually.

Still no good deals whatsoever. The Rapid City ShopKo is finally closing but games are only 10% off at this time. I'll update when they get cheaper, if only for nostalgia reasons.

ShopKo has marked down all video games to 20% off so I bought Gears of War remastered for 11 bucks. They probably have a month left before they blink out of existence.

Man, I remember when it opened in like 90, 91. My best friend and I were so excited because it was something new, on opening day his parents took us there and we got some of those cool Transformer watches that used to be all the rage.

Five years later I'd end up working there, originally as a cashier but I got moved to the outdoor greenhouse because it looked like a lot of fun. Such good times! When summer ended I moved to electronics, where I found my forte selling electronics that'd I go for the next two decades almost.

And now ShopKo is a dying corpse, with everyone acting like vultures to pick apart its corpse. The store is already pretty empty, I can't imagine what it'll look like in a month.

I also forgot to update KMart, they haven't carried games in years and are going to close for good any day now. So sad, especially after watching that YouTube video with that Dan guy exploring his old abandoned KMart.

Well, ShopKo went under over a month ago and KMart was but a distant memory at that point. Stuff at ShopKo got really cheap towards the end, but of course anything worth buying was long gone.

Before it got desolate, I managed to get the Xbox One remasters of the Dead Rising games so at least I'll have those to remember a once proud store by.

Feels like the apocalypse with everything around here closing. Remember when Sears used to sell video games? Like how they'd have that monthly coupon in EGM that was really good? That one month I got the Sony NBA game for the PS1 for a sweet deal and played it nonstop for months? Or that one time I played it and tested to see what would happen if everyone fouled out?

Heck, remember Sears? They closed last year...
