Anyone know of somewhere on the west side of KC that has Animal Crossing: WW even available? They're all sold out in Lawrence. :(

SI


I saw some animal crossings at ToyRus by oak park mall this morning

Thanks for the response. That was the next place my wife and I were headed but we found it at the 115th and Metcalf BB. Used the $10 off coupon, too, so $25 :D

It's crazy- there wasn't a single copy in Lawrence at Target, Wal Mart, EBGames, or Best Buy. And online, it's sold out at Amazon (and TRU), Buy.com, Barnes&Noble.com (and Gamestop since that's who they get it thru), EBGames.com, Target.com, and WalMart.com

For anyone looking for a copy and not wanting to pay $45+ on ebay, there were 7 or 8 copies at that BB.

Lenexa here. We have an interesting used game store here. It just opened this summer (I believe). It was called Replay and is just west of Quivira on 95th street (next to the Chipotle). Anyway, then have already changed names. There is a big banner hanging over Replay Games that says Game Exchange.

They never seem to have any business and there selection of this generation games isn't great. They do have some adequate deals on used DVDs and they have quite the selection of older systems available; that is, in case you missed out on the Dreamcast or the concreate-block-sized Gameboy. It seems like the place that I may score a hard-to-find game at some some point, but no luck yet for me (although my little brother found some RPG I'd never heard of and was pretty happy). They sell some othere fun stuff like case mods for the current generation systems.

If anyone is in out this way, there are a couple Vintage Stock stores that are fun to go to as well.

There used to be a game exchange on 23rd street in Lawrence, had a fairly large stock, with olders stuff like genesis, game gear, and some import stuff.

I was at Game Exchange and I really do think that place is pretty crappy. You should just stick with Vinatge Stock.

If you went to the one on 95th then it could just be because they took over the old store, which came prestocked with a poor selection. There is apperantly another GameExchange opened up down by 119 and blackbob in Oletha. I haven't been to that one though. As much as I like looking around Vintage Stock, I rarely find anything I want to buy that has a decent price on it. It's lots of fun to look around though; when my old college buddies come to town we go out there to look at how much our old GI Joes and Transformers are selling for now. They also have all the old Star Wars suff you could want (execpt for the pitiful selection of the Decipher TCG).

Out of curiousity, does anybody know if that GameExchange on 95th associated with the GameXchange stores on Noland Road in Independence or 291 in Lee's Summit?

GameXchange is not affliated with the Kansas locations. It's franchises of other stores.

And Vintage Stock is my choice of Ma and Pa stores in the area, the limited selection of them. Lawrence is a better choice for that on Mass.

Are you saying a GameXchange on Mass or a vintage stock. I'm guessing the former because I never heard of a vintage stock out there. There have been a couple Vintage Stocks open up in Springfield Mo (one of them used to be Caveman).

Been awhile since I've been downtown, the only game store that I know of that is downtown is Game Guy in Lawrence.

There's a new (4 months old) used-game only store in Lawrence downtown on Mass, Game Nut, I think. It's between 8th and 9th or maybe 9th and 10th. I ran across it last week when I was getting a hair cut.

I checked out the TRU on bannister that is closing hoping to find some 360 accessories for sale, but everything was gone.

I haven't been to any of the TRU closings, but in my experience store closings are awful for finding deals. Everyone jumps in and buys all the good stuff on the first 10% off deal (of which they could do better by waiting for a sale). Remember all the K-Mart closings awhile back? Awful.

If anyone wanted a followup on my previous question, Game Nut is open on Sundays, but I didn't find anything too interesting from the current generation games. They had some nice old stuff and there were some interesting DVDs though. I didn't like the prices I saw so much either, par for the course I guess. I did find some hard-to-find- chocolate up the street at the Europe store though.

Did you try the Sears in the mall? It's closing too, and I think everything is 20% off.

That's a shame. I found some deals there awhile after the TRU sale started and was hoping to do the same this time. Thanks for the info...

Just a heads up for anyone around Kansas City: The Shawnee Target (on Shawnee Mission Parkway) has 2 copies of Guitar Hero left at $60.

Pretty much every Blockbuster with a GameRush recieved shipments of 360's this morning. If they are out, they will recieve another next Tuesday.

Which is why I have a 360 in my basement now

It is KC after all. :lol:

Just look at this as your opportunity to:


Finish side quests on FF games, or finish that Jak II you bought and never played more than a few hours of.

Have some fun trying to play a dvd using the regular PS2 controller.

Play a CD on your PS2 for the first time ever.

See if you can play old mortal combat games with a dance dance pad.

Turn off you lights, play with a laser pointer until your eyes hurt and pretend your playing the Virtual Boy.

Put on a mitten and try to play games, you could pretend your playing with the powerglove, but you more likely to play well with the mittens.


OK, I'm done being snarky now.

Cheers,
T

Or make up new endings to well-known films, example, the alternative ending of The Passion of the Christ:

"Behold, he is calling Elijah. Let us see whether He comes to take him down.."
A bright flash of lightening glitters in the sky as a Delorean appears, hovering above the cross. The soldiers scatter in terror for fear the great and mighty metalic lord haveth come down from Heaven to smite them. The door opens upward as a wide-haired figure sticks his head out of the vehicle.
"Marty! Jesus is in bad shape."
"Don't worry Doc, I'll swoop down on my hoverboard and save him."
*Cue Back to the Future suspence theme*
"Hang on there Jesus, I'll have you out of this in no time"
Marty uses a crowbar to pry the nails from Jesus's wrists and feet.
"Get down closer Doc, we gotta get inside!"
The Delorean sweeps lower and Marty places Jesus in the rear seat.
"Fire it up doc lets get out of here...Back to the Future!"
The Delorean raises once again up into the air, the engine guns as the car disappears in another flash of light leaving tracks of fire.

Seconds later another flash of light appears as an object falls from the sky onto the ground below. The door on the side opens as two figures step from the phone booth.
"Whoa Bill, where the hell is Jesus, we need him for our next oral history report."
"Bogus Ted, we totally came too late..."

[font="]Speaking of Bill and Ted, I would like to let you all know that Bill and Ted is actually the Precursor legacy for The Matrix movies. In both movies:

1) Keanu Reaves is chosen because he will have an effect on the future of the world.

2) There is a strange guy (Rufus/Morpheus) who helps guide Keanu to his destiny.

3) You can travel using pay phones.

4) Those who want to stop you are machines (remember the bogus journey)

Ultimately it all points to Bill and Ted being one of the earlier iterations of the matrix. I guess that means that Bill was changed into Trinity in the new universe.
