He probably just got worn out, it was hot and he was just repeating the same line over and over

Not sure if this was mentioned back in May, but I just found out they're opening a Gamestop in Adams Morgan. It will nice to finally have a GS in upper Northwest for those of us who can't be bothered to leave our ivory towers. :D

Sorry to be a pimp on here, but I want all the DC CAGers to get a shot at this if they want:

you guys have first crack at this! I will look to discount it some and maybe accept some trades to lower the price. I want to sell the lot to pick up the PSVita when it comes out

Good luck with the Craigslist sale.

I've give up on Craigslist after 7+ years of selling items in the DC area. When you list a bunch of items and attempt to bundle them together you're bothered by replies like I'll take your 1 item for half of what your asking for and come meet me 45 minutes away. F that. CL is now used by very cheap people....even by CAG standards. Plus, the DC area isn't that far apart, but traffic makes traveling twice as difficult. Sorry, just my rant on CL.

I've gone to Baltimore Comic-Con twice now without buying one comic. I think tomorrow i'm just going to hit the 50 cent bins and go crazy.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I just got it in my email. This Saturday there is a huge event for "Double Victory" and they are also showing a sneak peek look at "Red Tails" (executive producer is George Lucas). Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Nate Parker, and David Oyelowo will be in attendance for a Q&A. Best of all, it is free! Hoping at least one CAG in the area is willing to go and take pictures. It seems really neat!

All the details can be found here: http://redtailsdc.eventbrite.com/

Is there a Moderator that can put the entire CAG community behind you and maybe front page this?

Just to let you guys know, the Borders in pentagon city is having a 50-70% going out of business sale. Kinda picked over but there is a TON of manga, a couple game guides and such. So if you are near check it out. If not, you can give me an author or whatever and I can take a peak for ya.

Uh oh, looks like I might drive there sometime this week. I wanted to make sure, it isn't the one in Springfield, VA? That one didn't have much when I was there.

nope, directly across from the pentagon fashion centre. The more popular authors were majorly picked over but when I was there, the manga section looked untouched. Looking for something in particular?

I was going to drive to Germantown, MD again for manga once since they had good stuff, but didn't last weekend due to the storm. I picked up good stuff in Timonium, ND. Regardless, it's more like I gotta look at the manga to make up my mind to see what I need. For sure I'm looking for Blue Exorcist which isn't Vol. 3 and Future Diary greater than vol. 8. But at the same time, I NEED to stop spending money (after buying tons of anime and preordering pricey video games like the $120 bundle for Disagaea 4).

Aw man, was there last weekend (on vacation from nyc) when it was just 40%. Would LOVE to go back now. I picked up a batman graphic novel for cheap when I was there but you're right they had a ton of manga. I'm going to miss that Borders too I always went there while on vacation.

I'm going to miss Borders too. Many memories from the store from buying manga there, textbooks for college at my college location, buying OPM there for a demo disc, etc.

I pretty much cleared Columbia, MD location of everything I want. Annapolis, MD didn't have much special. Columbia Mall location has next to nothing left. Silver Spring, MD was a mess. Springfield, VA had very little even at 20% off. Germantown, MD and Timonium, MD were the two best I went to the last time I was at both.

You are prohibited from visiting the Germantown one!! That one is mine, and I am waiting for 80% off to arrive.

On other news, went to PAX Prime and will be making a blog here (on CAG, not on this thread) to give an idea and preview of some games (plus pictures overload). Definitely not missing any more PAX conventions.

Now playing: Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS), Overwatch (PC)

I will go back there whether you like it or not. ;) I might even go there on my birthday. We can celebrate it if you want. :-P

Good seeing you at PAX, nightmare.

Saw and played a lot of good indie / XBLA / Steam prospects. Mass Effect 3 was looking good, too.

The sad thing about manga discounts is that even at 70% off, it still doesn't get down to what I see at yardsales and flea markets ($1 apiece). I dunno though, it might still be worth checking out for some Berserk manga in Timonium.

I buy manga from rightstuf and Amazon typically. At that deal, they are usually cheaper.

Indeed, online is usually better than retail. Locally there's a comic shop not far from me that charges $15 a pop :drool: and it's like yeah right, used bookstores charge $3-5 for the same manga.
