I'm looking for somewhere to get some gaming posters that aren't absurdly expensive, any ideas? I used to get all of mine from Nintendo Power, but ever since they were canned I've been stuck.

You can get some cheap ones, like $1, on Amazon if you look hard enough.

You could try and ask at some game stores, if they have any old ones, and you can buy some for cheap. I've bought pretty big posters for about £3 each.

I go to my local retailers and ask them for crap they don't want. They usually hand it over just fine free for for a small price. If not, then Skipping (Dumpster Diving) is your next best bet.

You're in the US right? I've seen plenty of Gamestop dumpster diving videos to know they're a gold mine of chuckin' crap out or heck, just asking them for any promotional items they want (game case stands, posters, stickers, keychains etc).

Usually free for for a very small fee $5 which seems fair. I hear a lot about Gamestop but I wouldn't know of any other big retailer there you could try. Any shops that a closing down is a good place to find stuff. I got some good goodies from Blockbuster near me. GTA V and Max Payne 3 posters. GTA V are the best way to know how the shop works, ask if they're giving any out since they're the latest poster fest of these retailers.
