I think we should try to keep an updated list on this site.
I was there today and Disgaea for PS2 and Simpsons Hit for Xbox didn't work, they were full price.
What did work that I saw, was Fifa 2004 and Mario Party 4 for GC.
Anyone else?

Can anyone be so kind to pick me up a copy of Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance for PS2? I will pay for the game, shipping and a little extra.

went to CC at West Covina and NOTHING there.


If anyone find MGS2: Substance, DDR and Rygar (all PS2), could you pick one for me?? I'll repay the game + shipping + your time.

Thanks

I went to CC twice today. I went to two different locations (Robinson, PA and Century III). Both stores had the games on the shelf and I was able to purchase them... but they didnt have that many.

Robinson:
PS2:
MGS2: Substance
TimeSplitters2
DMC 2
Marvel vs Capcom 2
Legaia 2

Century III:
DMC 2
Haunted Mansion
Disaster Report
Chaos Legion

I was really hoping to find: Clock Tower 3, Futurama, Disgaea, Rez, MP4 (GC), Frontline (GC), MKA (GC), and Viewtiful Joe (GC), but they were all out of stock.

Im gonna try to go again tomorrow... not sure where though.

If anybody went to these CC let me know... or if anybody knows any other CC's around the pittsburgh area that have a decent inventory of these 4.99 games please let me know.

Went back tonight before closing. Someone must have picked up the rest of the Viewtiful Joe's, because the 2 or 3 that were left at 1pm, were gone at 6pm.

In any case, I will up my offer to $20 for Ikaruga GC if anyone comes across it.

Some guy on another board showed a picture of what he got and he had like 5-10 copies of some games. They should put a 1 per limit on these titles else why have a sale when a bunch of asses just buy everything out and Ebay them for a profit.

I went about 1:30 on Sunday and picked up.

Ape Escape 2
Wild Arms 3
Breath of Fire: Dragoon Quarter
Dark Cloud 2
War of the Monsters

The employee were pulling them and putting them on the bottom shelf. The cashier told me that someone was waiting for them where they opened and bought 40 titles.

If you live near Chicagoland, check out Disc Replay for Ikaruga. I just snagged a copy there for $12. Didn't see any copies at Circuit City, but if I do, I will grab one for you! Good luck!

I went to TWO CC's today in Michigan. Picked up Splashdown and NFL Blitz Pro....that was about all they had really.

I think I saw Aggressive Inline, Lotus Challenge, Celebrity Deathmatch, Dead to Rights (PH), and Haunted Mansion. That was about it though...possibly one or two more off that list. They had a BUNCH of NFL Blitz Pro's at both stores....but the rest there was maybe one copy.

Here is what I scored yesterday.

Xbox
The Fairly Odd Parents
Tetris Worlds

PSX2
Ico
Okage
Devil May Cry 2
Dark Cloud 2
Ape Escape 2
Chaos Legion
Stretch Panic
Rez

I would have been happy with just Dark Cloud 2 plus I wanted Chaos Legion so I got both games I wanted. Well I wanted Hour of Darkness but missed that I also looked for a few games for some posters on here but could not find any and all the games I got was the last copy's.

I just hope other people can get the games they want cause while I was in there some workers was pulling games for themselfs while they was on duty. So it going ot be hard to get the games before them. I know some stores won't lit workers do that. One game I wanted a worker wanted but I told him he could have it cause it hlepd me look for stuff and price scaned everything so I wanted to pass around the love.

Poor guy only had 3 bucks on him told them I'd gave him 2 bucks to get it.

PS. I also did not act like a ass if they had 3 copys of a game I got one for myself and that was it. One guy got 2 copy's of 2 games he got. One was a game I wanted too.

PSS. Thanks again to everyone for this thread.

Did not get a chance to really pick over the games. I did not have the complete list in hand, and had my 5 year old son with me but picked up the following at 38th street in Indianapolis


for the X-box

Run Like Hell
Vexx
Star Wars Clone Wars
Enclave

They also had New Legends and Wild Arms, but I did not pick those up.

I would have liked to have gotten The Thing for me, as well as Mario Party 4 and some of the other GC/GBA titles for my son. But no luck on those.

Employees and other customers were picking over the games while I was there most with a list in hand.

I had to go visit someone in the hospital so I stopped on the way back this afternoon instead of on the way there. That was a mistake. I heard one of the employees saying someone bought over $400 worth and several others bought $80 - 90 worth each.
