Alright, finally a CAG close to me! Blues, you can come down and play GGXX with me sometimes. I promise not to kidnap you and hold you for ransom.

In case you Georgia CAGs don't know, there is 1 Fry's in the state. They usually have good deals on new releases (most often $10 off list price) and show up weekly on the Deals Forum. The store is in Duluth off I-85 north of Atlanta. Last time I was there I got Trauma Center, Castlevania DS, and DDS2 for the same price as in this thread. I wanted to see if this store would have the same price cuts as the 20 or 30 stores on the west coast. I know Best Buys is usually YMMV and decided to see if Fry's is equally messed up. Looks like Fry's has their act together when it comes to coordinating prices nationwide. I'm glad that 1 1/2 hour drive wasn't wasted. I even managed to pickup the last copy of Trauma Center.

I posted this in the other thread but they are suppose to build another Fry's at Alpharetta next year. Hopefully this means they plan on expanding on the east coast.

That's all I can think of right now. I'll post more if I see anything.

When people ask where you are from, do you all say Atlanta? just curious. It seems as if Atlanta has about 150 mile suburb circufrence where everyone in it claims to be from the city.

If someone is from out of state I just say Atlanta. In state, Woodstock. That's the north-si-yeed.

BTW, why doesn't everybody just put their town in their profile? It make things real easy, especially when someone's talking about a great deal in their area then don't say where they live.

Is the KB in Cumberland Mall still open? I know the one in Town Center Mall closed a while ago.

The Cumberland Mall store was listed on KB's website as the only Atlanta store.

It is the only Atlanta store - there's no KB at Lenox or stand-alone strip mall. North Point, Mall of GA, and Arbor Place still have KB's, but those aren't Atlanta zip codes :-). The Norcross store in the Forum closed, but it never had anything good. The Vid Game section might've been the most pathetic one I've ever seen before it shut its doors.

I am here in North Carolina, but I lived an Alpharetta during a semester of college in 2000. DeVry sucks. But alpharetta is awesome. And so close to Turner Field.

Woodstock here...

Here is a breakdown of 2 lesser known chains in the ATL I go into quite a bit.

Rhino - If you haven't visited one yet you should. They have a trade 2 for 1 new up to $50 game deal going on all the time that isn't bad. The 2 games you trade have to be worth $10 credit each or they have to sell them on the wall for $24.99. There are several at GR you can picked up with your credit to trade in for a brand new game at Rhino. Last week I know BloodRayne 2, Jade Empire, Doom 3, Conflict Vietnam, Area 51 and Terminater Redemption all worked for the xbox. Most of those titles can be had used for $9.99-$19.99 at GR plus there is the 25% off going on used titles. Seems to be easier to find xbox games to trade then GCN or PS2. There are about a dozen in GA www.rhinovideogames.com and they are owned by Blockbuster. All they sell are new/used games for any system made. Therefore its a nice place to look for older titles as well.

Movie Trading Company - Another blockbuster owned chain. Only 5 stores in ATL area. They seem to offer great trade for most games. They will pay cash or credit. D2R2 still gets $20.25 credit there if you want to avoid taking them to GR. Right now they have a good sale going on 5 selected games for $20 I posted the info in a thread today. Plus they even will give you .90 credit for each old VHS tape you have laying around. Games usually are overpriced, but they constantly markdown some titles to move it out and they have a nice selection of new/used dvds. Most of the time I dumped unwanted items here and pick up used TV series box sets.

Don't waste your time at KB's in ATL.

There isn't anything worthwhile at Cumberland or North Pointe. One of the employees at North Pointe who does the markdowns picks through it all before it hits the shelf. I know because she told me when I was in there for the last markdown and there was only 1 copy left of Ratchet. Cumberland mall has very few video games in general.

My guess would be the Hiram Outlet could be worthwhile if anyone lives out that way...

I'm coming up to Atlanta this weekend and I was wondering if there are any good places to check out for games and DVDs. Thanks for the info on the Cumberland Mall & KB Toys. I was wondering how good that Movie Trading Company is. Do they have any deals like B2G1 Free and are the prices reasonable? It sounds like a version of MovieStop that's down here in Florida (Gamestop-like layout that just deals w/ movies & buys back VHS tapes for around .50).
