If it's a new car a good rule I've gone by is negotiating the final price of the car (after taxes, fees, etc.) right near what the dealer is asking for as the msrp. You only have to do this if you don't have access to invoice prices. If you have the invoice price then it's that + 500-1k for dealer + taxes/fees.

If you are a USAA member buy the car through them. They negotiate a very good price for you, and you just walk in to sign the papers because deal was made before you walked in the door!

When/if you trade in your old car, don't use it as part of the deal. Make the car purchase a separate deal. After a price is finalized and agreed upon, then attempt to sell them your used car. let's say your car is worth 2500. The dealers will inflate the sticker price of the car you're interested in and then tell you they're giving you a 5k trade in value when all they are doing is taking your car for nothing.

If they don't want to buy your car after you make the deal on the new/used car you purchase then sell it privately afterwards.

Also don't get anxious at the dealer or fall in love with a car. You can walk away from any deal. There's enough inventory out there that another car that you like will show up in the area. Walking away from a car deal is harder if you're younger so good luck if you're under 25 trying to do this on your own.

Finally don't get a Dodge....just don't.

The a/v port on the SNES might be dirty/loose/broken. You can try cleaning the inside of the port with 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and pieces of coffee filters, or something lint free you can wedge in there. Have you tried connecting a different console or old DVD player using the same RYW input on your TV?

Don't know why he couldn't do this stuff at Giantbomb. He was pretty much doing whatever he wanted with articles and content anyways. No one was making him QL My Little Pony Games. W/E good luck opportunist and don't forget to thank the children.

I felt real bad for Roberta Williams. She had to beg to get to hold the award from Ken, and then he wouldn't even hold the microphone for her while someone adjusted it. She ended up with the mic poking at her forehead while she was talking, while the mic stand blocked her face from the camera.

After that, the asshole that was making the new King's Quest game wouldn't even humor her by keeping the hat on that she gave him. She handled everything with class but still, damn.

Ok that rant aside, the show just needs mtn dew and Doritos in the award shots and they should be all set.

@odie_esty: Halfway through Sonic 2. I burned through most of my patience in Sonic 1 keeping the Genesis on long enough to get all the chaos emeralds.

There's supposed to be three available using that link. More folks are probably going to give them away in live chat this week too.
