It AND the Wal-mart relocated. Circuit city to 1 block east of 41 on Barrett, and Walmart to Barrett Lakes Pkwy (where the $1 theatre used to be)


I remember seeing Lost in Translation at that theater. It sucks to find out their gone.

The Blackwell $1 theatre closed too (next to Side Pocket).

The good news (besides Geico) is that there is a decent little used game shop next to Willy's in the BB&B/World Market (old Uptons) shopping center. A little overpriced on the 2D fighters, but nice to browse.

If that's the one on Barrett it's called Play N Trade.

Sandwiched between Nextel? and Willy's, yeah that's it.

Not the greatest store in the world, but a nice little diversion and you can test anything in there.

And when the hell did my old school go D-IA in basketball? We just need to get Tootsie to pass on and we might even get football.

Play n trade's not bad. It reminds me of that old store Video Game Exchange that used to be at the other end of that shopping center years ago.

KBToys Northpointe Mall store is part of the buy 1 get 1 free sale. Overall selection isn't that great. Really PSP and DS games were the only items worthwhile. Alot of the best titles like Mario Kart DS were picked up the first day the employees said.

I'm going to the KB Toys in Discover Mills mall in Gwinnett County tomorrow. HOPEFULLY they will be doing this sale too.

KB Toys in Discover Mills, off of 85 past Gwinnett Place Mall, is having the B1G1. There were some games left, nothing I was interested in. They had a lot of DS ones, but nothing worth purchasing in my mind.

Northpoint Mall pretty much wiped clean of anything worthwhile.

Got back from Cartersville, something happened to the EB there nothing before the gamecube, xbox, and ps2 there. Made me mad was looking for a 64 game for a xmas present. They do have a store I have never seen before Rhino used games. They had a tom of DC, Snes, Nes, a good amount of 64 and genesis games. There was a lot of ps1 games too. They had all current gen games at pretty good prices. I would say about gamefly prices. Also EB and Rhino oth had SUIKODEN1 for 25-30 buck looks pretty good. Also Target there had a couple of 360 HD bought one to sell.

So is that the only KB store in Atlanta with that buy 1 get 1 free deal?

That could be a huge plus. The TRU near me seems to get raped by a employee now. Wonder if here is on here...

Would that be Kennesaw? I went in there Monday last week and it was a wreck.

Yeah I was in there the 27th. All the display copies for games were on the floor, but they were sold out in the case. No games were on the floor really. Found a copy of Sega Superstar for a future gift. When I went to check out, the storage room in the front was open and I coud see it was loaded with games. There were 2 employees in it looking through the games. They were just looking at the titles and the one was making a stack of a few to the side. I worked at TRU for several christmas's and it was very common for stacks of things to be stashed aside. I notice about stacks of 20 each for the gamecube sonic 2 packs and monkeyball 2 packs. They are clearance for 9.98 now.

Normally unless a employee wants to piss off another employee the stacks are normal status quo and sit back there. However since they are starting inventory prep right now for the first week of January, they could make it to the salesfloor. Basically the dept. head for RZone will want it all pushed out of the storage room to avoid having to do counts in there. There could be a nice wave of 9.99 games and other old markdown games coming out of the storage room in the next few week.

I made the unfortunate mistake of going in there on the 23rd. No good titles to speak of whatsoever. No MMCs either. I was greatly dissapointed.

If any of you are close by and interested, the Kennesaw TRU has about 10-15 copies of Metroid Prime 2 and 15-20 copies of Geist.

I haven't played it but I've heard pretty good things, especially for $10.

Is that the TRU close to where I-575 ends into I-75? I can never remember the name of that road in front of it. I saw about 10 Polariums left for $10.

Yeah that is the one. Barret Parkway is the road. Seems like several of us stop in there once and awhile. I figure by the end of the week they should have the backroom cleaned out adn the shelves full for inventory.

Barret Parkway, that was it. I just remember that road seems to be completely jammed every time I'm down there. I hate being stuck in traffic.

I went to the Media Play right across the road too. It was having the closing sale but the video game section was pretty much cleaned out. I didn't see anything of interest to me at least. They still had a bunch of strategy guides, computer games, cds, and manga if anyone is going to be down there. I think the manga was 30% off.

Isn't there a Trade and Save down there? I remember seeing some ad for a video game store in that area but I could never find it.

Hey do you guys know any places in GA where I can get a cheap PSone screen? I've already called all 4 MediaPlays here to see if they have any in stock (they're supposed to be 5 bucks b/c of the sale) but no luck.

Checked out the Media Play on Johnson Ferry today. They seemed to have about twice as much left as they other 2 on the North side of town. Games were actually in decent order still. Wonder if they are planning to sell the xbox 360 kiosk they have there.
