Dude...I just had one of the biggest fucking plates of Carne Asada fries ever!! I got them off this one place off of Midway (in the same center as the old EBgames, now Gamestop). It's called Bahia or something, its located in the food court across from EB/Gamestop. It's $5.75 after tax and man are the CA fries delicious!! I couldn't even finish all of it, I had to get my left-overs for to-go! Check them out if you're ever in that area, trust me you'll thank me later lol.

Which one gives a bigger plate? So far I think the one I just mentioned is winning for biggest plate when I saw it I was like "O SHIT!" in a good way haha

I ate at Lolita's for the first time this past weekend. Nothing I haven't eaten before, but it was real good. Very much like the Roberto's and Alberto's up in the north where I usually eat.

In Oceanside there's a place called Game ADX on Vista Way just off of Coast highway. I went there once, prices seemed a bit high but not unreasonable, lots of stuff.


ugh... i can't stand this place. GameADX guy, if you're reading this, sorry but you're an ass and so's your store.

the reason they have so many unique items is because the guy that owns/runs the place charges both arms and legs for anything. when you want a price on pretty much anything "retro", he whips out his giant Ebay-esque price guide (i've seen pawn shops with this same guide) and quotes you some barf-price. i once tried to buy some Turbo Grafx stuff from him which was fine, until he realised that he didn't have prices on anything yet, at which point he told me, "oh yeah, i bought this stuff for myself, it's not for sale, i forgot." okayyy....

so anyway, that's all. i'll never go there again. to top things off, the guys who work/hang out there (hard to tell which they are) are those wretched snobby nerd types that you just want to choke clean out on sight.
Being cheap doesn't mean you have to be a liar and a thief. Have some respect for yourself.

Congrats. Be sure to pick up LoZ: TP, Super Paper Mario, Rayman Raving Rabbids, and RE4: Wii Edition.

Feel free to add me and I'll add you back.

LoZ:TP is probably the best game i've played in the last year or two... before that was Oblivion.

Does anyone here need a widescreen computer monitor? I'm selling my 19" for real cheap, just $140. I'm broke as hell right now.

I got RE4 for now, and that game is 10x more scary than the GC version I played 2 years ago. Something about the motion control makes it a lot more scary lol.

But anyways, I guess I'm heading out to Comic-Con tomorrow for the first time in 5 years. Anyone got a list of what's happening tomorrow? And is Markman gonna be there with his Tekken thing?

EDIT: Ok, I think I'm going to sell RE4: Wii edition. I don't wanna play it anymore :lol: I'll let it go for $20, if anybody wants it let me know.

Damm, but oh well I just got back from CC and let's just say it was insane! It was fun but insane. I was able to snag an Anakin Skywalker replica lightsaber for $90 (originally $100 but bargained down to $90), pretty good I guess.

I saw the Rock last year...or was it 2 years ago. He's super nice. He liked my chocobo. :D

Say, anyone picked up an extra Pepsi Prime? I would trade or buy for my idiot best friend's X-mas present.

You should have been visiting the transformers toys thread. I had 2 extra Rodimus and 2 extra Pepsi Primes, that I was offering near cost + shipping. I got a grip of PMs and picked winners less than 10 minutes ago. If anyone backs out on the Pepsi's I will let you know.

I got both of the exclusive Dan Hibiki figures, two pixelated Castlvania Simon Belmont figures, and a couple of graphic novels, a few comic books, and Cory Doctorow's Overclocked. Plus a ton of free stuff. I spent over $100 I'm sure, none of it on food.

Do anybody's GameCrazy's ever ask for ID when trading in games? The one I go to usually never do, but today I was asked for one when trying to trade in my games. Being only 16 (17 soon) and not 18 yet, I was unable to trade in any games. I don't remember a time where I had to be 18 to trade in a game for another game. What gives?

When I was working at GameCrazy this was standard policy. The policy linked to some kind of state law I think.

Chargers first preseason game today...can't wait. Too bad I'll be still at work for the first half, so I'll most likely not get to see the first team play.

If you're talking about the store next to Thai Time II...

They have excellent prices on magic cards and older used games.
The Thai restaurant next door is my best friend's family's Thai restaurant :lol:

Also, there's GameAddix in Oceanside near Coast Highway and whatever the name is of the street that the 78 becomes.

I heard that minimum wage is going up to $8.50 in like a couple of weeks. Is this true? Can someone confirm?
