Hey everyone! Bill & I did some Game Hunting yesterday and I purchased quite a bit and so did Bill.  We had a good day for hunting the sun was shining the weather well it was COLD!  Also the other day Bill and I met up at CD Tradepost and I got rid of a some more movies and some CD's and I purchased some more games in the Buy X Get X Free.  So let's start there at CD Tradepost on Monday I picked up a few Genesis titles I needed to fill my empty boxes that I am working on and yes I will be posting a Sales Thread soon for everything I have for sale including those Genesis boxes that are for sale.  I picked up David Crane's Amazing Tennis, Barkley Shut up and & Jam, Jack Nicklaus Power Challenge Golf, Jeopardy and Revolution X CIB. I also picked up a couple of PS1 Games - Go figure! haha and I also picked up Spyro Enter the Dragonfly Player's Choice GameCube.

Then yesterday Bill and I started off when our usual routine after we stopped at the post office to drop of packages on for Zag and one for Shadow they are on their way guys!  Then we were off to HPB and I found a Final Fantasy Anthology pretty much New Brady Guide for $15.00 any other place I have seen this around here are $30.00.  I also picked up He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Book copyright 1985 - I know not game related but it's nostalgic.  I also picked up a very mint pretty much new but they opened it to verify contents stupid HPB sometimes a GameShark Special Edition for Game Boy Color Pokemon Crystal Edition. As always I will have everything listed and priced in the end.  Then we went on to the first Gamers and Bill picked up a few Atari 2600 & 1 7800 game for me instead of Gas Money and and I picked up Road Rash 3D PS1 Black Label & MEGA MAN 3 on Game Boy!!  For those who don't know the title of my blog this time is for the Mega Man the Theme Song from the Anime in the '90s had the lyrics with "Super Fighting Robot Mega Man." Then we went onto Game Central Prices are all over the place but I got me something very nice and very cheap I got a box for the Atomic Purple Controller N64 System and semi-rare Atari 2600 game called Wabbit, and I purchased Tomorrow Never Dies on PS1.  Then we were off to a second Gamers that we haven't been to for a while and they usually don't have anything but this time they did I picked up Ristar CIB on Sega Genesis, Castlevania II Belmont's Revenge on Game Bo.  I also picked up Chuck Norris SuperKicks Xonox Cartridge my second one --One of Them Will be for sale probably eventually for those interested and finally I picked up Star Wars: The Arcade Game on Atari 5200.  Then our final stop was Ben's Gaming Zone Bill picked up Minty CIB Phantom 2040 SNES for me and Jupiter Strike PS1 Long Box.  Then I picked up Syphon Filter 3 Black label in which I picked up Syphon Filter 2 Black Label at CD Tradepost.  SO here is the run down please comment!!! and pictures to follow.

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!

Hey everyone as I promised here is another fantastic adventure in Game Hunting that I said I would post sorry a little delayed but I had a ton to catalog and put away soon to be a ton more come mid-February.  So the other day (New Year's Eve) Bill and I decided we needed to hit up a few places.  We went a little backwards than we normally do and well it felt odd and the day kind of started off dark and gloomy BUT it did get a ton better.  We started off by going to Ben's Gaming Zone to try and sell of some DVDs but that didn't go so well but Bill picked up a few things nice things while we were there.  Then we were off to CD Tradepost in La Vista to get rid of some moves and Bill picked up a few things there.  Then we went over to Gamers and I picked up a Castlevania on PS2 there and Bill picked up a few games as well. Then we went to CD Tradepost in West Omaha to get rid of some more of my movies I didn't get anything again but Bill did haha.

Hey everyone for my birthday today Bill (Engel762) and I decided to do some shopping as I had Gamers hold a complete (not boxed) Sega Master System 1 for him.  So after a decent night at work I am exhausted now as I write this (sleep the rest of my bday away I bet lol haha).  Today was a great birthday and a great day to go hunting for Bill and I.  First off we head to our usual place HPB and Bill picked up some great stuff a lot more than me but it was all cheap he got some Warcraft Manga and some other pretty sweet stuff! I picked up two Manga Disgaea and Disgaea 2 Vol. 1, Bill bought me some Garfield Fat Cat 3 Pack Books (love Garfield lol for Gas) and for trade for a SMS Light Gun he bought me CIB/Mint Beauty & The Beast Roar of the Beast. Then we were off to Gamers and as I mentioned before our main reason to going there today was to pick up his very own SMS 1 system which he has been trying to find complete for a while~well he got one in pretty good shape too. While we were there the ASM whom which is awesome let us dig through a box of games that they had sitting in back.  Well there were a ton of NES games, a broken Coleco cord, a dirty ColecoVision and a bunch of other stuff then I saw Three Dirty Dwarves!!! I was stoked as I have been wanting to get this game for a while then we dug through the box some more found a Made In Hong Kong - Basic Version of Mario Bros. on Atari 7800, Pitfall 2 Atari 2600 - I bought that for Bill, Omega Race for Coleco (Previous blog a few weeks ago I picked up Omega Race for Atari 2600).  I also picked up Blades of Vengeance - CIB, Captain America and the Avengers -CIB.  Also picked up in part of a trade (which I was actually planning on buying myself on Friday - Thanks again Bill!) Romance III - CIB very minty.  Also the ASM gave me a bag of manuals mostly SNES free.  Then we were off to another Gamers where I got my birthday present from Bill Nosferatu still in the original shrink wrap but opened!!! The Gamers guy wanted to rip it off I am like no don't! But he did start to tear it so I taped it back up NO I DIDN"T CATCH ANY OF THE BOX! But this game is so mint it is practically brand new! This is probably my best bday present in a long long time! Thank a lot Bill!! Then we were off to Game Vault were Bill picked up his first Boxed N64 game at a good price but I will let him tell you his side of the day.  But here is the run down! and then Pictures.  Please Comment!!!

Hey everyone!! I know it's only been a couple of days since my last post BUT today my brother and I went and did some more shopping on my only day off this week!!! Today I got rid of more movies to purchase more games and my brother just flat out bought a few games! Yes he is back well kind of but not over abundantly like he used to do a while ago.  I am the heavy purchaser now but I am a thrifty guy so I usually go for cheap stuff or trade with Bill as he has been wanting stuff of mine that I have for trade and sale.  But anyways on to today's hunt we started off by going to CD Tradepost (yes it pretty much as the same path as last time haha) and I traded in some more movies to get some cash.  Well the other day I put Super Mario Bros. Deluxe and Wario Land 3 both CIB on hold and today my brother purchased them BUT he also picked up Gunstar Heroes CB (Need a manual anyone have one for $10 to $15.00???) But the box and game are pretty good condition.  Then we were off to Ben's Gaming and I traded some more movies for more cash (movies CD Tradepost wouldn't take) we looked around a bit found some decent stuff but I decided I didn't want to buy anything there.  Then we were off to good ole HPB (again love this place until I die).  There they had a few more things added to the cheap section and a few more Sega Genesis games arrived (you missed out on this one pwcody) we looked at the game guides for a bit I picked up Pokemon Colosseum Limited Edition Guide complete mint with the poster intact, Granstream Saga, Brave Fencer Musashi, and Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2011.  BUT in the cabinet of games there was a Dreamcast game (Illbleed i think it was) I looked behind it and what did I see Aerobiz so I went over to one of the workers and asked to get into the case I was crossing my fingers hoping it was going to be cheap and well what do you know Aerobiz was $3.99 COMPLETE IN BOX!!! I was like Yoink!!! The other game I was interested in was Chester Cheetah Oh To cool but it was complete and well it was $2.00 more that Aerobiz!!! Oh yeah and I picked up Maze Mania Sears Telegames edition of Maze Craze.  Then we were off to our final place (well game place) Gamers and I picked up Shenmue, Shenmue II Manual (For Free). The Shenmue DC is complete 100% minty almost as if it wasn't played and looks brand new, I also picked up minty CIB N64 Rush 2, even has the poster, and my brother picked up Ultimate Card Games on DS. That was all she wrote we went to my favorite baseball card store and purchased my Christmas Presents.  So here is the run down:

CD Tradepost -
*Super Mario Deluxe GBC - CIB - $10.00
*Wario Land 3 - GBC - CIB - $5.00
*Gunstar Heroes - Genesis - CB - $25.00

Hey everyone on Friday Bill and I did a little game shopping only at a few places. Like our normal routine we went to HPB and he picked up a few things and for gas money he picked me up Pokemon Special Edition Strategy guide which covers Yellow, Blue & Red and get this it HAS ALL THE STICKERS! The guide is in mint condition I have seen this one maybe once and the stickers were gone probably stuck all over some kids Game Boy or something (refer to my previous blog of mom throwing boxes away for my feelings on something like this).  Then we were off to Gamers which lately hasn't been the greatest but we always keep trying well Bill had a ton of luck he finally got his 5200 tv/power adapter!!! CHEAP! Plus a lot of nice PS1 games and a nice Dreamcast keyboard for I believe it was $1.95!! For a buck I picked up Gunslinger (Picture Version) Cart for Atari 2600 it's the Sears version of Outlaw.  I have never seen this in the wild and I like the Sears carts because there is history with them in my family as that is where it all began for me well my parents anyways. Also forgot to mention earlier that also for gas money Bill picked me up something non video game related "Urban Chipmunk" on LP which is a Weird Al like version of Urban Cowboy but with the Chipmunks but who doesn't like those little critters especially the old school ones (me I prefer the 80's versions).  Then we were off to my favorite Baseball Card store to pick up a lot of cards for our boss who loves the Yankees ---ick haha well I do like Jeter and Giarardi.  But anyways back to video games we went to our favorite local shop and picked up for trade Frankestein The MOnster Returns MINTY CIB!!! and Cool World CB I NEED A MANUAL SOMEONE HELP!  Bill picked up a few SNES games so keep an eye out for his finder's keepers and blogs show this guy some RF Support he is doing a fantastic job collecting and does a great job in his finds and gets some pretty sweet stuff from me for his collection for trade! So as we collector's should always do is help each other out!  So here is the rundown and the picture please comment!!

Hey everyone Bill (Engel762) and I did some end of the month shopping and went to our usual places and tried to find a new place that didn't exist.  We first started off at Half Price Books where I picked up in trade (for my Roger Waters: Live at The Wall CD Set) a few comic books at $0.50 a piece (not pictured sorry.  I also picked up a few clearances GameCube games as well.  Then we went to Gamers and I got two Halo Promotional items a Halo: The Anniversary Edition Promotional Box and Halo 4.  Then behind the counter were a few games mostly damaged stuff but Bill and I spotted a few games I picked up Karate & Time Pilot (Which is kind of scarce, and I so wish it was the rare Karate game) both are for the Atari 2600.  Then we went one of our favorite places on the way home and I picked up Whomp 'Em on the NES in a trade with Bill.  So not much for me but keep an eye out on Bill's page the market is getting kind of dry here sometimes I wonder why?

Here's the rundown and the picture:

Half Price Books:
*Comics 4 at $0.50 a piece
*Lord of the Rings: Return of the King - GC - Player's Choice -- $2.00
*Medal of Honor Rising Sun - GC - Player's Choice -- $2.00
*Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003 - GC - Players Choice -- $1.00
*****ALL GC Games are complete minty in box.******

Gamers --
*Halo Promotional Items - $2.00 a piece
*Karate -$1.00
*Time Pilot - $1.00
***The prices are actually lower than the above prices mentioned because I have a shirt from the company so I get discounts.***

Favorite place -
*Whomp 'em - $15.00 - CB - I need a manual if anyone has one.


Thanks and enjoy.

Hey everyone! So Bill (Engel762) and I did some more shopping and I did some little browsing on my own.  It's been a pretty good month so far Bill has picked up quite a few things to add to his growing collection as have I.  IF you missed the last blog the Street Fighter Anniversary Set is so boss (little 80's talk).  Bill and I hit up a few places Wednesday Morning of last week.  We went Half Price Books first I didn't pick up anything but Bill did.  Then we went to one Gamers store couldn't find anything much since they are doing something ridiculously stupid such as clearing out their old games which now they have chalked it up to getting rid of PS1, DC, and SS.  Then we went to another Gamers and they haven't cleared out everything at this time. Bill picked up a few things and since if you buy a guide with a purchase of a game equal or great value he picked me up a Final Fantasy 3 guide for SNES and I picked up a Tray/Stand for my Red Wii (See prior blogs). Then we went to CD Tradepost and I picked up I guess it's sorta kind of "rare" gamecube game Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Then we stopped at Ben's Gaming and I picked up a few things (See list below with pictures. Then our last stop was a Pawn Shop in Council Bluffs and we both picked up a couple of NES games. Then the other day my brother and I did some browsing as well and he picked up a couple of things. 

So here is the rundown:

Gamers -
*Wii Stand - $0.95
*Final Fantasy 3 SNES Guide - $9.95 Originally knocked down to $7.00
CD Tradepost - Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone - GameCube - $7.00
Ben's Gaming:
*Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection - Volume 1 - PS1- $2.00
*Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection - Volume 2 - PS1 - $5.00
*Sega Genesis Greatest Tips - First Volume (I know have both volumes) - $1.00
*Rush 2049 - N64 Manual - $0.50
*Super Mario/Duck Hunt Manual with Product Code - $0.50
*SNES Mouse Manual - $0.50
Council Bluffs Pawn Shop - Wild Gunman (5 Screw) - $3.00=
Best Buy:
*Puzzler 3D World 2012 - N3DS - $30.00
*Mortal Kombat - PSVITA - $20.00


Then here is the last part my brother picked up a few comics at a local store and I bought Back To The Future CIB off eBay for $12.95-Free shipping. Then the other day I bought Doom 3: BFG Edition - Sadly disappointed I recommend to everyone unless you are a die hard Doom fan and want every thing to do with Doom DO NOT buy this.

Hey everyone!!! Bill (Engel762) and I did a little browsing the other day and came across some pretty sweet stuff!! (Check out his blog for his many purchase items! All at pretty good prices and a trade with me).  Bill and I have been doing this about once or twice a month whenever we have the time or money. We stopped at our usual HPB and then onto Gamers (we went to all three stores in Omaha).  Bill found a couple of great things like a boxed NES Super Mario Bros. for a whopping $5.00!! But for something for trade he picked me up a Halo Xbox I have been wanting one of these for YEARS!!! And well thanks to a fellow collector and friend I now have one which in trade he got a boxed Atari 2600 and a few games for Atari, and Sega Master System (Don't worry Bill we will find out a Master System complete) Also at one of the Gamers Battletoads in Battlemaniacs CIB (The Assembled in Mexico Version) .  We also went to Good Bytes and I picked up Baldur's Gate II The Collection for $4.00, oh the Xbox was $40.00. The first part of the blog Bill picked some stuff up for me for the trade I mentioned earlier.  Then on our final stop on the way home we went to Ben's Gaming. Then on Friday I did a little browsing with my brother (who doesn't collect retro anymore) and I picked up MY RED WIII FINALLY!!! Now is there anyone with the sleeved copies of New Super Mario Bros and Wii Sports want to sell them to me to make mine 100 % complete??? Then we went to Best Buy where my brother purchased Boarderlands 2 Collector's Guide & Kirby's Dream Collection SE.  Then we went to Gamestop and I picked up Ninja Gaiden 3 Collector's Edition for Xbox 360. Yesterday I went back to HPB and I picked up Metroid Zero Mission Guide.

Here is a list of everything:
Thursday - HPB

Saturday - I went Retro Toy Shopping (Not going to be pictured sorry) I picked up a few DC Superheroes Action figures from the 1980's and A Batwing From The Dark Knight Collection from I believe 1991. If you want to see pictures I will be taking pictures of all my retro toys soon.

Here are the pictures:

In the first picture you will see the Burger King Turtles Video, Goof Troop Video, Hulkmania Cassette, and Soundtrack Cassettes (All retro stuff I love it), the videos were given to me from Bill, and the soundtracks I picked up a while back at Goodwill Wearhouse - Innerspace, Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Road House, and Golden Child.

Hello everyone this is my begining of August Finds.  September though could possibly be a heavy month of buying but who knows.  So I am on this kick of finding cheap stuff or things at a decent price.  Well last weekend I bought Kingodm Hearts 3D for a total of $5.00 I had a few giftcards from purchasing items before that and kept collecting the cards and got the game well for buying the game I got a $10.00 gift card so I practically spent nothing on the game!  Then my brother (whom which doesn't collect much anymore for a lot of reasons which I respect and we are selling some stuff) he picked up a brand new copy of Monopoly Star Wars on eBay using our eBay bucks grand total he spent $4.00!  Then today I went to a garage sale and picked up an NES Action Set Complete in Box for a grand total of $2.00!!!!! So I would say that is the mother of all finds in a while!!! I know own an orange zapper set and a gray zapper Action Set! So sweet!!! Also today went to a local store and picked up Assassin's Creed II Masters Edition for $17.00 sadly it is almost complete it didn't have the statue SO!!! IF THERE IS ANYONE out there that has an extra statue or want to sell there statue I would be interested Thanks.  So here is the picture let me know what you guys think. The Action set is very minty fresh even the box looks pretty great.

Hey fellow gamers I am going to be starting a new trend blog/forum about my brother and I video game collection.  The first topic will be Nintendo since it is after all our favorite and well these last few months we have added a ton of NES games in their boxes.  A little background on our NES stuff when we were younger my parents through away our video game boxes and now we feel like we have to play catch up which is what we are doing BUT we also added a ton of games along the way.  I have fond memories of buying our first Nintendo (the Sports Set) for $88.00 on clearance at Wal-Mart in 1992 along with a few games in their boxes (hence they were thrown away along with the Sports Set box).  Collecting Nintendo stuff in general is great because there is a lot of history.  Yes we have a lot Sega stuff, Playstation, and many other great items.  The best piece of our NES collection I think is our sealed games, and our "rare" games, and our pristine or mint condition NES Games.  I.E. Mega Man 6 (Pristine), Gargoyles Quest II (Pristine), amongst others there will be photos for everyone to see.  Our best piece in our SNES collection is not boxed and won't be seen is our Earthbound - Guide and Cart, BUT boxed I would say is our sealed copies of all three Super Star Wars games.  Game Boy I would say ALL of our sealed Game Boy Games but the best one of those is Ducktales 2.  Game Boy Color - Sealed Lufia, GBA - All four Super Mario Advance games CIB in Mint Condition.  N64 would be our boxed copies of Indiana Jones & Worms Armageddon. Gamecube would be Resident Evil 4 (Game Stop Edition), RES 2 & 3, LOZ CE & Ocarina.  Wii well that's a hard one lol maybe Super Mario All-Stars Anniversary Edition.  DS - All our RPGs, 3DS - None haha.  SO hope you all enjoyed this little bit and here are the pictures - VERY PHOTO HEAVY!
