Just moved in the area in January, going to UCF. With the cost of living for myself now, I'll have to be a better CAGer. :D

I hit up the Rhino on E Colonial Dr. before they transformed. Kinda sad to see them transform into something different.

Yeah that Rhino near Colonial and Alafaya was pretty nice. Haven't been there since the conversion, though.

Any of you UCF people:

Movie Gallery on the corner of University and Dean is closing. Last night there was a ton of PS2, XBox, and a couple of kinda bad Gamecube games for 40% off the clearance prices. Someone already took ALL of the entire current gen collections. -_-

And then there's a bunch of movies still left. But it's Gigli and goreror quality.

The Kohls at Waterford Lakes has $9.99 (regular $18) video game shirts including Wii, Xbox 360, Link/Zelda, Donkey Kong, and Super Mario Bros. They are in the middle of the walkway when walking through the Mens section.

Hey Orlando folks, the Orange County Regional History Center has a pretty cool new exhibit on the history of video games. They talk about the first video games and arcades, all the way to the current set of consoles (the Wii remote on display had the official glove!). They had two rooms of facts about video games and their creators, glass cases with old and current systems, as well as gaming stations including Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, an Xbox 360 FPS to play. They also have a new exhibit on classic toys from the 1900s, such as Lincoln Logs, Nerf Balls, Slinkys, and Monopoly. Admission is $6.50 for students; $10 for adults. The video game and classic toys exhibits run through April 13th.

Any of the Orlando CAGs going to MegaCon? Stop by, say hi, see some CAGart history, pick up a CAGbracelet, and say hello!

If anyone wants to try out Super Smash Bros Brawl, Play n Trade (Across from Waterford Lakes Shopping Center) has it set up in their store.

I live around UCF too and have recently been feeling the urge to pick up a classic system or two - anyone ever GONE to all those pawn shops on Colonial heading towards downtown, Flea World in Sanford, or got any thrift store recommendations? The goodwill near Rouse had a few Colecovision/2600 games last time I checked but they were pretty common, loose and like $3/game.

There's also a bunch of shit up in Casselberry near Rocky's replay (Salvation army, Thriftco & other junk in the same plaza). YMMV.

I did this week, nothing good on Colonial, best find was a Jaguar at the EZ pawn right after Orange Blossom. Try Sanford, you may find something, just be prepared to pay because a lot of the stuff is overpriced. I did find a Complete Mario Clash! for $5 there so you can find deals if you look.

Anybody in the Davenport area? Is the neighbourhood decent? I'm looking to move up that way in the near future.

I'm about fifteen minutes away from Davenport. It really depends on the subdivision, but in general it's a nice area that is developing quickly. Five years ago, you would have been in the middle of nowhere.

When I went to pick up Mario Kart Wii at the Fashion Square Mall TRU on Monday, they had signs up inside and outside the store saying they had Wiis available. So if you're looking for a Wii, you might want to call up that store. No one ever shops there.

I think we're a hotbed for the [insert any hated site name] hoarders. A few years ago, you could pretty much have your pick of clearance games from any of the major sales. Now, if you aren't there when they open, you really take your chances. Theoretically it could be someone here, but it seems odd to have spiked in the last year or three.

Heck, even some of the more remote destinations are getting picked over quickly - I used to have a store for each major retailer that was almost guaranteed to have what I wanted. Not so much anymore.

Although, anyone who trades in at GameRush, it seems most of the straight Blockbuster stores are now taking trades as well. This was supposed to be active months ago, but every time I asked I got denied. A few weeks back, I had success. Then again, it could just mean this particular store (535 & 192) isn't on the ball.

Reporting for duty!

I live in East Orlando, Waterford Lakes area. Do any of the local stores (Circuit City, Best Buy, Target, Wal Mart) have clearances on games? I've looked around but haven't ever found anything.

I very rarely find anything good. I've mostly stopped trying. I'm by there too and wander into BB and Target every so often.

Hey, guys.

I live in the UCF area as well [behind the college, actually], and the main thing I can tell you is to never bother with anything in Waterford. The whole T/C just gets too much traffic and anything that could ever hope to approach worthwhile is gone long before it becomes reasonable. The Circuit City across the street is your best bet for anything, and even they only carry the usual 16.96/8.96/whatever priced games (Only thing I want in that whole shopping vicinity right now is Geometry Wars for the Wii on clearance at CC).

The PnT by CC is a nice place to browse, but they rarely have anything that good since they're in direct competition with Gamestop. On the brighter side, it's never crowded with people who don't know what they want. :roll:

The only advice I could give is to visit the GS on Colonial across the street from the Super Wal-mart since it seems most people don't know about it and their stock tends to be better than Waterford's, and the Target on University Blvd near FullSail. Also, if you feel.. lucky every once in a while, you can check out the K-Mart that's also on University, right across the street from Target. I picked up a cheap copy of VP:Silmeria a few months back. Nothing beyond that, though.

I've been learning to make the most of what we've got around here since there are quite a few Gamestops in the area..
