Just came back AGAIN, and for some reason they had Castlevania for xbox there...it must have came from the back, but I quick snatched it up!

I also snagged Karaoke Revolution...figured it be a fun party game.

Thanks OP,

I went to the Eatontown NJ, Circuit City tonight and bought Hulk Ultimate Destruction (Xbox) and on a whim Driver Parallel Lines (Xbox). I almost re-bought Indigo Prophecy but decided against it. All the sale games were on the racks and already priced at $8.96.

While I was there, I saw two old, fat Greek guys with a Circuit City plastic cart (like the ones employees use to restock DVD's) in the Gameboy isle and they had at least 100-150 Gameboy games on the cart. They were giggling and consulting their list, and one of the guys had a handful of "$15 off $100 or more" coupons in his hand.

When I foolishly got too close to their nerd float (while looking for the Hulk Xbox game), the one guy shielded the cart from me and told the other guy to "watch these, don't let nobody take dem".

It was sad/funny.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (GBA) rang up at $34.99 at the CC in Tigard, Oregon.

Okay, so say you don't want anything from my trade list.... How about just selling me a copy of Drill Dozer? $15 shipped sound alright? I've got direct transfer PayPal money.

Thanks much to the OP. On Friday evening, about 6pm, I went to the Overland Park or maybe it was Olathe (you know, Southwest Kansas City), KS CC- not the mall one at 95th and Quivira but the one down at 122nd and Metcalf. Bumped into a friendly CAG there who was looking for some of the more obscure stuff and having some luck. Always enjoyable to run into nice and friendly CAG.

As for the games there, I picked up the last copies of Metroid Prime Pinball (DS), Mario Golf (GBA), and Sword of Mana (GBA). I think they were the last ones, anyways- I only saw one copy of each. No more copies of FF1/2, Pokemon: Ruby or Saph, Meteos, Advance Wars, or Lunar ( :( ) to be had that I could see. I think there was a lone copy of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. That's what I remember about the Nintendo handhelds and that's about all I was looking for.

I also picked up Warriors (XBX), Indigo Prophecy (XBX), and Wild Arms 4 (PS2) for a friend of mine. Didn't really notice much about the console games, tho I did see a copy of KOTOR 2 and no copies of the Halo triple pack. There were more copies of the Warriors but I don't remember if there were any more of Indigo Prophecy and I don't think there were any more Wild Arms but I could be wrong on all accounts.

Also, this was a location where FF4 for the GBA was ringing up at full price so no dice on that front :(

SI

You lose rep for not kicking over their cart and throwing glitter.

Sadly, I was all out of glitter. :( I live in an area with a high concentration of hoarders, and I need to buy my glitter in bulk.

Just got Metroid Zero Mission - last copy that was stickered for 29.99 but had the sales associate scan it and it was 8.96!

Store didn't have Castlevania for Xbox or PS2 so I'll try another store or 2 next week...

That should be our secret handshake. Everyone carry a bottle of glitter. When you see someone with a list, show them your glitter. If they do the same, they're CAG's. If not, dump it on them!

CRAP!! And I was just at a CC that had a load of these. I've been waiting FOREVER for this to drop under $20 even - I'd snap it up at $9 in a second.

Is this a YMMV wrongly tagged thing, or did it actually ring up that way?

I just went to my local CC and I asked the guy at the counter if they had the 8.96 sale and he said yes, but when I went to the games the I saw some games on the list but they were about 30 or 20. I guess I have to wait until the 4th of July:cry:

I think that I would confront a serious hoarder if I saw him/her. It's one thing to grab an extra for trade (or even sale) but when you buy games by the 100 . . .

Those coming in from Saturday shopping, please CML for trades:

Sounds like a great (and completely reasonable) plan! (And I'm not even being sarcastic.) Of course, I just carry around a few CAG "business cards" in my wallet...

Sorry, I know this means more trips. It scanned in at that amount. So it should be everywhere.

Just a heads up....keep an eye out for any mismarked titles that aren't $8.96 but is marked it.

I went today to pick up Advance Wars for my brother and came across a copy of Wario Ware Twisted that had a $8.96 sticker on it. Got it up to the register and it rang up $19.99. They gave it to me for $8.96. Looks like they had tagged the wrong "Wario Ware".

Damn, I'm late to this party....

Another summer CC sale, and once again I'm on vacation in NY while my usual goldmine CCs back in TX are probably being cleared out:cry:

Anyway, I hit the Middletown, NY CC today. They didn't have much of what I was looking for, but they still had a lot of titles available for anyone interested.

I did grab a Metroid Prime Pinball(DS) for trade if anyone is interested. I'm really only looking for Halo Triple Pack and KOTOR II right now.




Hey my Wal Mart work at has KOTOR 2 for $10 even.

Ill pick you up a copy if you want. Im also in Houston.(Northeast/Kingwood)

Good call. I'll have to keep an eye out for that.

And Mr. Mystery, do you mean the outside of the cases were marked 20.00-30.00? If so they should still ring up 8.96 ;)

Even if they have another sticker on them, they are coming up $8.96. The 2 copies of AW I got were both marked $34.99 each but came up $8.96 each.
