Hey everyone again! I know it's only been a few days since my last blog but I figured I have gathered enough stuff these last couple of days to make another blog haha!! First I'd like to say it's been a great start to a new year and I have feeling it's going to be a great year of Game Hunting especially with a few new stores in the area.  Also my brother is semi out of "retiring" from collecting as he again does buy mostly PC but he picked up a couple of doozies today on SNES and Game Boy. So let's being with the other day my brother went to Good Bytes and picked up 3 PC games one of which is Advanced D&D Blood & Magic which comes with everything! Including the novel. There he also picked up Sonic & Knuckles collection and More Las Vegas games. Then the other day my co-worker sold me a N64 (No Expansion) with the Purple controller and regular controller both of which are perfect its like they were hardly used.  He also sold me some PS1 games Road Rash 3D GH, Driver 2 GH, NFL GameDay 2005 which was the last Sony Released PS1 game, Spec Ops Aiborne, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Lone Wolf to complete my Rainbow six collection on PS1.   

Then yesterday I decided to go cash my Jury Duty Check and pick up some games with what money I had left over from buying Tiny Toon Adventures Volume 3 after standing in line at Best Buy for 45 minutes to exchange since my original copy that I purchased not more than 15 mins before only had 1 disc in it! So I thought yesterday wasn't going to be a good day.  So I decided to hit up Good Bytes myself to see if my brother missed anything well he didn't but I picked up Driver Black Label anyways! Which earlier I mentioned I picked up the Greatest Hits version of the game and I like black label more!!  Then I went to a local store which I know the owner pretty well so he gave me a deal on some things I picked up Shockwave Assault on PS1 long Jewel Box, Wheel of Fortune Manual for Genesis, Caesar's Palce Virgin Release Game Boy Manual, Chase H.Q. Manual, and All-Star Challenge 2 Manual.  As normal with my blogs I will list and price everything after I tell the story LOL.  Then my final stop yesterday was Goodwill and I picked up CIB Columns Sega Classic version.

Then onto today as I stated I would probably do some more shopping today I wish Bill would of joined me but it's all good my brother Steve did later in the day and we picked up something really nice Smiley  To start off my day I went to CD Tradepost to sell off some more movies and as I didn't get a whole lot of money I did pick up couple nice Long Box PS1 games (I'm starting to see a pattern as of late - but I will not let it suck me into the darkness I want Nintendo Games!!!) I picked up Twisted Metal (Sorry Bill) & Cyber Speed both in Long Box Original versions not Jewel Case Long Box.  So then it was about time I go to another Local shop and I traded the rest of my DVD's and did some trading as well.  Bens gaming is awesome and the owner is awesome so I picked up Beyond Oasis Genesis, F-15 Strike Eagle to finish off my box only, Roadblasters to finish of my box only, Space Harrier II to also finish off my box only.  I also picked up Rocko's Modern Life: Spunky's Dangerous Day - I already had the manual I got for free now all I need is the box, Acecombat 3 PS1 - it was on my wishlist, Dino Crisis 2 - also on my wishlist, Driver - Black Label, Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol, Loaded - Long Box Original, Castlevania Curse of Darkness - Very Minty PS2, Castlevania Curse of Darkness Xbox - VERY VERY VERY MINTY!

Then I came home and my brother said hey let's go to lunch and I was like okay so we got to the Mall of the Bluffs and I was like we should go to Game Central and he's like sure Westroads has a Sabarro I was like yes they do so we went there ate and then went shopping at the tiny Game Central.  There we saw it sitting on the shelf Super Ninja Boy!! I have been wanting this game for a long time and the price I believe keeps going up so my brother was like I'll buy that and on the next shelf was Mega Man: Dr. Willy's Revenge Player's Choice on Game Boy so he bought that!  I purchased the final game of the day Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection on Sega Saturn Minty.  I have one or two copies of disc only since a person on eBay ripped me off a few years back.  So if anyone wants my loose copy it might be up for grabs if Bill doesn't take it.  So here is the run down and the pictures!

I couldn't help but notice the Game Central stickers...are you in Minnesota?
Good eye Invader No they just opened two new stores in Omaha, Nebraska. BUT I have been to all the Game Central stores in Minneapolis I love those stores but not as much as I love Vintage Stock in KC and Topeka.
I need that Midway Saturn collection! Cheesy
@noiseredux: I have an extra disc only copy Smiley
Dude, Game Central is the worst. Overpriced, and hardly anything at all interesting. I'm shocked you found anything worthwile. Nice finds though.
@Beardcore84:Thanks! I was talking to the manager at the oakview store they are allowed to price at whatever price they want or they go with what's in the system.  I saw a few filler titles at the oakview store that were cheaper than the westroads store.  But I agree they are overpriced.
As much love as I have for Beyond Oasis, Dino Crisis, and the longbox titles, I have to give it to the copy of Blood & Magic. LOVE AD&D, let alone AD&D set in the Forgotten Realms universe.
@Shadow Kisuragi: Blood and magic is nice it's 100% complete.  I haven't fired up the windows 98/2000 computer to play it yet maybe next week.
Gotta get scans of Blood & Magic for us, niceguy.  I've seen most of the other AD&D games on PC in boxes, but not Blood & Magic.
@bombatomba: I don't think I have a scanner only a camera and camera phone but ill see if
I can find the old scanner and do it.
I was going to comment on the AD&D game and the Saturn game but people beat me to it! Good finds on those. It's always good to find nice N64 controllers for cheap too.
@nupoile: Thanks yeah those controllers are mighty nice.  They will be used as back ups of my back ups.

Hey everyone. My brother and I have collected a lot of games throughout the years. We have a huge collection of games spanning from Pong Systems to the most recent systems. We also have Japanese systems and lot of cool video game related items. Check out our blogs from time to time because we "score" a lot at our video game stores, flea markets, and of course eBay.
