Posted under Collecting, Video games, Rare finds

It has been a long time since I have went looking for video game related stuff...since before the birth of my son almost six months ago. I was very eager to find something unique to add to my collection. I wasn't disappointed. Smiley Spending just under $50, I was able to add 18 games, 1 system, and 10 controllers/accessories to my collection...all without a single yard sale in the mix.

Since I am a little pressed for time this week and probably will not be able to write again for a while, I will make this short and simple.

Pawn shop: The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (GB) and Operation "C" (GB) for $3 each

Gamestop: Black & Bruised (GC), XIII (GC), Asterix & Obelix Kick Buttix (PS2), Oni (PS2), and Wipeout Pure (PSP) for $2.69 each

3 Thrift stores: Dreamcast system with two controllers, four memory cards, A/V cables, Power cable, and 4 games all for $10, (Armada, Star Wars: Demolition, Trickstyle, and Virtua Fighter 3tb), NBA Jam and Madden '93 (GEN) for $0.50 each, Super Mario 64 (N64) for $0.99, a Multi-tap (GB) for $0.99, and something called a "Quickshot" (SNES) also for $0.99.

FYE (For Your Entertainment): Going out of business sale!!! Wartech (X360), Watchmen: The End is Nigh Parts 1 and 2 (X360), Aedis Eclipse (PSP), Death Jr.: Science Fair of Doom (DS), and Marvel Trading Card Game (DS) (all new and all for a discounted 90%!!!!!) at $2.99 each

I am very happy with yesterday's finds and hope to continue this trend when I move back to my hometown region of Denver, CO this summer. Thank you all for reading and I hope you are having a great 2010 thus far!

Awesome finds!! I'll be looking for a Links Awakening sometime this year can only hope I find one anywhere near that price.
Oodles of awesome games in there at amazing prices.

Excellent grabs boshamp.
One in particular that means a lot to me is Asterix and Obelix. I played a game gear game of them incredibly frequently during my childhood and reminded me of a couple great road trips...too bad the game gear sucked the life out of batteries within
@Crabmaster2000: I may have a cart only floating around, lemme know Smiley

Good finds, especially at FYE! Wartech is a pretty cool game, even if went straight to discount prices.
