Nice Russ! Just picked up a sealed Code STEAM for $12 from EB. Not sure why it was discounted so low, but I'm eager to try it out

Amiibo scores part 1, my wife waited in line for me this morning at Target and TRU for Jiggly, Silver, and Ninja. I got the Little Mac and Villager amiibos shipped from PlayAsia after my order was cancelled and refunded. I e-mailed them to ask and they told me there was an error in the system for many that ordered during the same day, so I ended up with those two for free. :) Now I just need Marth, Fit Trainer, and Pit to complete my set thus far.

I had the most luck I've had in a long time amiibo hunting yesterday.  I was at Target and all they had new was Pac Man.  A guy there came up to me and my friends and said Best Buy had a silver mario, a dragon man, and a girl with a sword.  So we quickly proceeded to check out and went one block over to Best Buy and sure enough, at their customer pick up station they had new amiibos, limit one per person.  They had Silver Mario and Charizard, but no Lucina unfortunately.  Thee extra Silver Mario and Charizard will likely be up for trade for anyone who didn't get one.  I got those there and while looking at the 3DS games I saw something that didn't belong in the cage they were keeping Xbox Ones and a Wii U.  There was a Majora's Mask New 3DS sitting in there.  My wife offered to buy it for me as an anniversary present instead of the present she was previously going to get me.  (our anniversary isn't until August) So I ended up with a surprise new 3DS.  Gamestop had Wario, and when my friend went to Toys R Us, he said there was a Greninja,(not pictured)  which he was nice enough to grab for me. I had a really good day yesterday.

Finally managed to grab a GameCube (I'm very late to the party), but for more than i intended to pay. Not a total bust thought because it had all cords and came with 5 games* and 3 memory cards and a Nintendo Power guide for Pokemon: XD Gale of Darkness.

*Games:
Pokemon: Colosseum
Pokemon: XD Gale of Darkness
The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (Player's Choice)
Super Mario Sunshine (Player's Choice)
Pokemon Channel (Game Only)

Paid $40 for all.

Scored some stuff today while out and about. First up, my modest garage sale scores :
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-05/7A87C638-7160-4186-9BD0-7FF025BB43CD.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-05/7A87C638-7160-4186-9BD0-7FF025BB43CD.jpg.html)

The price on the dance pad is real, and they included a DDR game in the bag.  Works with PS1, PS2, & XBOX.  Here's what I picked up between a pair of Goodwill stores:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-05/DC9527AE-02EF-4C7B-BF1B-E357DE9F3BBB.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-05/DC9527AE-02EF-4C7B-BF1B-E357DE9F3BBB.jpg.html)

And for my last trick, the grand finale, my pawn shop haul:

These walked into my local shop and then walked out with me.

(http://i.imgur.com/TWg9gvQ.jpg)

Rockman Battle & Fighters and SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium for Neo Geo Pocket Color.

The shop got a good deal on them, and the owner passed those savings on to me.  I paid $40 for the pair and was able to use trade-in credit to cover that cost.  Probably my best find in the wild in a long time.

I heard horror stories from some of the local collectors about the lack of those two and even a fight breaking out over Robin inside of TRU. I am glad my wife was able to pre-order all 9 in store and wait in line for me on Friday to get the other 3.

Here are my pickups over the past few days. My best friend from out NY just moved out here, I went to go help him unpack over the weekend, and he was going to get rid of the PS3 Fat that is Backwards Compatible because it has YLOD issue. So he gave it to me instead. I am going to get it fixed soon.

I got Megaman 8 Anniversary Edition for 5.00 from Goodwill. It does not have the special booklet though.

Got the boxed Donkey Konga for 4.00, no game, but the bongos are in there.

Hey everyone. My brother picked up a few things at the Ultimate Indoor Garage Sale last weekend and I grabbed a few things from work in case they discontinue them. 

-Growlanser is missing the Soundtrack but everything else is still there. 
-Indy came from a local store that he wanted me to pick up for him.
-Betryal is a Variant but he got it for $2.00 ---haven't decided if it will be up for grabs.
-The Aladdin Lunchbox is complete with Thermos pretty much brand new ---funny thing is it's an Aladdin Lunchbox by the company Aladdin ;-D

-The Super Mario Fruit Snacks, Super Mario Cambell's Soup & Super Mario Spaghettio's are from work.  Also Not pictured but I will post it later is a Grab N' Go Doritos Bag unopened that me and my crew found wedged between shelves it is a Halo:Reach Bag :-)

Everything else but the Palm OS Golf Game was from the Ultimate Garage Sale (Including the lunchbox & Betryal)

I have an Asian bootleg of the Streets of Rage soundtrack. I have no clue how it found its way here, but apparently they took the Bare Knuckle soundtrack and Americanized it.

@Addicted:
The cover is a scan taken from a now-defunct emulation site, ZoneSega.com. The disk seems like it might be a custom label, but the insert seems WAY overdone for just a simple hack job. It's proper card stock, has a screenshot with professional image editing techniques, and just overall seems like it was done by someone with proper publishing skills. The CD itself also has very high quality tracks - I think they are 192kbps.

Grabbed this Kingdom Heart HD collection thing for $20 at Wal-Mart, KH1 was one of my favorite games as a kid and this gives me a chance to play it for trophies and try out the two side-games it comes with.

I count myself lucky, then, because I preordered the splatter SoR vinyl.

Garage sales were kind of weak this weak, but the weather wasn't exactly good so I sort of expected it.  This upcoming weekend could be one of my biggest in a while, so here's hoping it makes up for it.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/13zts89.jpg)

This is my Amazon stuff.  Yeah.  It's been kind of dry lately.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/negakw.jpg)
(http://i58.tinypic.com/30accc7.jpg)

These are random picks ups from Stores and what not, and yes I guess I did take pictures of three of the games twice.  The strategy guides were $5 each from 5 Below.  The PC games in the second picture along with Glory of Heracles were from Best Buys clearance sale.  The PC games were $1 each and GoH was $6.  Pretty sexy prices.  Call of Cthulhu was from Disc Replay and I have been looking for this game for so God damned long, I actually started shaking a bit when I found it.  I can't WAIT to give this a spin.  Modern Warfare 2 Hardened Edition was only $3.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/sxkw2h.jpg)

This was all I found from garage sales, and I already had five of the things in the picture, but one was to replace a disc only copy of Singstar and the other I got because I wanted to leave my Tetris plug and play sealed.  They were only $1 a piece.  Guitar Hero 3, Jampack and the Hot Newz VHS, I don't know what I was thinking.  They were only 25 cents to $1 a piece, so there's that.  I included the VHS tapes I got because first of all the movies are awesome, and second this was included with Killer Tomatoes 1:

(http://i60.tinypic.com/2uhlds2.jpg)

Now that's pretty damn cool.

Finally I found this at a thrift store at the beginning of the week:

(http://i57.tinypic.com/315hlro.jpg)

It would be cool enough just for what it is, but what makes it even better is that it's the 1st printing of the 1st edition of this version of the Monster Manual.  One in worse condition than the one I found sold recently for over $400 on Ebay.  I paid 20 cents.  Spiderman 32x, you will be mine.

Pokemon Gold Version, sealed for $5. Sitting next to a $60 fat PS2. Gotta love those wacky prices!

The rest were from the same sale, guy had a ton of 360 games for either $1 or $3. Most in empty cases with no inserts, which was weird. Spent $6 total.

Well, ahem. Nice Lunar 2. I hope to get one in that condition someday. But my chances of getting it for that price, are about as good as winning the lotto.

 Moving on to my scores of late. I too, got some Working Designs games, courtesy of Lukiegames. The top three were from Crabby:

Putty Squad Boxed for the Amiga! :drool:
A follow-up to the 1992’s Amiga game Putty.
(http://s25.postimg.org/rnbxy9lwf/Putty1.jpg)
Spoiler (hover to show)
The game was like a holy grail for Amiga enthusiasts because it famously never saw the light of day despite it was completed in 1994, had good reviews, a demo and the SNES version was released on time. If you visited Amiga forums in Christmas 2013, it was a time of surprise because the original Amiga version was finally released on Christmas day, thanks to the developers System 3 and members of the Amiga community as a free digital download almost 20 years after it was supposed to have come out!

The game even got a full authentic box replica made in 2015 in 100 copies of how it looked if you had picked it up in 1994 :)

The Amiga version has quite the story:

Sorry for falling into nearly full time lurker. I do lurk though, looking at all the shiny things you guys keep getting. If I was commenting though, seems like most of the time it would just be some iteration of, "Whoa! Neat! Nice grab!"......which I would do for like every other post in this thread.



For the most part we haven't been out looking for games. Haven't even been going to garage sales I'm sad to say. My time has been mostly taken up with boring adult stuff. Any of you know how that is? Can't stay out of it completely though, so here are a few small things and one big one for ya all to take a lookin at:



Couple of games and a cable. Sins of a Solar Empire I have on Steam but I like to collect real games too you know. Tribes 2, can't pass that up. A cable I didn't really think was that component cable for the Gamecube but as I didn't remember exactly what it looked like I grabbed it.....this is all thrift store stuff and prices to match by the way.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/458/18625809351_31a330a26f_o.jpg)



The Ultimate History of Video Games, actually got this a couple months ago but didn't remember to post it until I saw it a couple pages back in small-scores. The Haynes manual because someone might be getting a sweet pickup from a farm shortly.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8887/18435860778_bff4ee8fcc_o.jpg)









I promised a big score. Not big like as in NWC cart or a baby or something like that. Something better.




Blinking Light Win was an awkwardly name Kickstarter.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/113891498/blinking-light-win-resurrecting-your-nes

Got it today, and raced to put it in and be the first to post about it here.

Arcade Works is making them to sell from their website:
http://www.arcadeworks.net/hardware/blw.html





While this thing is great and obviously I was willing to Kickstart it, I think of it more as an interesting mod rather than a better-than-original solution. The NES I took out from under that TV still works fine after 30ish years and will make it's way up to the game room. It will be fantastic if this new thing works that long (there is nothing to doubt that it will.) Other solutions for hard to start NESs are totally valid too.

Post by: Slowman on June 08, 2015, 11:21:42 PM
I haven't updated in awhile so this will be a big one for me.  This represents about a month and a half or so.

The Hori Mini Famicom controller and white non-analog PS1 controller came from a friend of mine; I traded 2 SNES repros for it (King of Demons and Rendering Ranger R2).

Mega Man X4, X5, X6 are replacements for me.  I sold the previous set I had in a misguided "thinning the collection" move about a year ago.  These all came from the same shop over a period of a few weeks.  X4 and X5 came on the same day and they were $25 together.  X6 came 2 weeks later and was $15.

Raycrisis came from another local store.  My roommate went and saw it there for $20 and sent me a text asking me if I wanted it.  Uh, yeah!  I didn't actually pay out of pocket for this; I traded him a copy of Monster Kingdom Jewel Summoner on PSP that I paid... $20 for.  Works for me.

The Everdrives came 2 weeks ago and they are meant to replace my cartridges which I sold in one bulk chunk about a month ago.  I actually don't regret this at all but Famicom and Famicom Disk System are now the only pre-PS1 items I collect now.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 was from Half Price Books.  For once they finally live up to their name on game prices because the other local stores want $40 for it.

I picked up The Witcher 3 brand new and am having quite a bit of fun with it.  After a loooong game drought where nothing was interesting me, this comes along and makes me enjoy my PS4 again.

Champions: Return to Arms was a *choice* thrift store grab for $4.50.

The minty clean 3DS and a roughed up GBA SP were gotten in a trade for a good chunk of my old UGC cases.  Since I sold all my cartridge games, I no longer needed the cases that I had.  I had sold some of them over a period of a few months and the 58 that were left were traded for these items.

The PC Engine controller showed up in a Facebook game trading group for $17 and I got it in the mail last weekend.  Still fresh off the plane from Japan, the controller was torn down and the plug was swapped for a DIN connector whixh the US TG16.

After our recent Shining Force community playthrough, I got my hands on a few Shining series games.  Shining Force II, Shining Soul II, and Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon.

All of the PS4 games were from GameStop through various sales/promotions.  I got Mario Party 10 on sale from Best Buy.

I already had the box to Pitfall, was able to find the cart for cheap at my local game store, which they often have good prices on Atari stuff.  Paid 6.50 for the Pitfall cart.

Its been a long time since I have seen Atari games at a thrift store, so I picked up what I did not have, sadly I came home to realize I already had Fireworld (Not Pictured) :(.  I am only missing Waterworld in the series, as I found out.

Found the Vagrant Guard guide for 3.00, pretty cool guide with a red ribbon bookmark, great full color guide. Don't own the game but the guide is cool.

I love Monster Party.  It's a fantastic underrated side scroller.  it's creepy imagery is the best.  It always freaked me out as a kid when that giant tree/cactus thing in the first level changed the environment from a happy place into an undead type of landscape.  I love the games' weird dialogue, dancing onion rings, colorful levels....a great game for anyone who hasn't played it yet.

Sorry,
I'm dead.

@nupoile, Hey, I forgot to comment on the awesome Blinking Light NES Mod.  Pretty Awesome way to solve the problem and having a region free NES. Hopefully it will come back in stock soon, and then I can pick it up and finally get to play Konami's Noah's Ark.

 The instructions look easy enough but how easy was it really to install?


Title: The Small Scores Thread: Part 4!
Post by: nupoile on June 10, 2015, 08:33:14 PM
@Fokakis   It's fairly easy to install. If a person was comfortable with opening up a console or PC or the like, it would be pretty simple for them. The NES just uses Philips head screws, so that's easy. Once all the screws are out you just pull out the old tray and connector and put the new ones in. The connector slips onto the board as easy as a game would. The nice thing about this mod is that it is 100% reversible. You can put the old parts back just as easy.

I don't think they are "out of stock" in their store, so much as it's more like they are getting them out to all the Kickstarter backers before they even stock the store. Duke backed it too and he hasn't posted that he's got his yet. We are still in the middle of fulfillment for backers.

The only downside I can see to it is how tough it is to get carts back out once you've put them in. So far pinching the edges and wiggling a little is what works. It isn't super tough but I doubt a child could get a game back out. Over time though it should loosen up a little, I'm guessing.

An upside though is it's making me want to play the NES more!

I had a GREAT shopping day out yesterday! Here are my GameCube Goodwill finds:

And between 2 Goodwill locations, here are my original PlayStation finds:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-06/6551E10F-0D34-44C7-8F8D-91DFC5307901.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-06/6551E10F-0D34-44C7-8F8D-91DFC5307901.jpg.html)

All but the NES cart are Goodwill finds, but the NES game came from a new game shop in my area:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-06/87CD1776-4DA8-44FD-9249-4AB1E3725671.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-06/87CD1776-4DA8-44FD-9249-4AB1E3725671.jpg.html)

@Russlyman: some of them are semi-scratched, which is par for the course, but they could all be buffed out if they're unplayable. And yes, it's probably one of my best overall finds, especially with the GC stuff.

After having gone through all relevant stores i have to say i was disappointed to find out there aren't any pre-GC/Xbox/PS2 games being sold in my city.

On the upside i was recently in Kennesaw with some friends and they had a 2nd & Charles so i grabbed a $2 Combat for the Atari 2600 while i was down there because i won't find stuff that old here.

My local game shop got a doozy in the other day.

Run Saber!  This one of my SNES holy grails, and one of the very, very few that isn't a beat 'em up.

Now, I had actually gone there to pick up these two games:

(http://i.imgur.com/9bAozGq.jpg)

Wizards and Warriors III and Jurassic Park.  I had completely forgotten that Jurassic Park had come out on the NES.

I picked up all three for $78.  Pretty retail-y prices.  What makes this a score is that I paid for it all with store credit I had from flipping games.  It was pretty cool.

After a week or so of feeling burnt out on hunting for stuff, I got back out there.  Here is what I picked up. Everything is from the thrifts except for the Atari 5200 version of Miner 2049er.

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/8vlsU6d58CWzTpf9vWYw3RHyC8nhdUqynykFZz2scwE=w871-h653-no)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/jcv7VsCsrK-iA42SUVttoO3pvjfjksHhm-xsuet4EEk=w509-h653-no)

I got Miner 2049er from ebay for 20.00, which is a pretty good deal for this game. Even though the box is in pretty bad shape, it is still a good deal. I believe I am now 1 or 2 games away from having half the library of the Atari 5200.

Everything else were cheap thrift store finds. I paid like 10.00 total for all the games. 3.00 each for the guides.  Trigger Happy is a book about video games impacting culture.

That's how I found my copy of Ys for the Turbo CD, $2.00.;D I search the music CDs all the time but that was definitely my best find.  Usually it's just PS1 games now.  I still hold out hope that one of the workers will think games are music CDs. ;D

Hey All! Well I didn't know if I was supposed to post the NES games so here it goes! I got all of these from our very own Wildbil who has helped me get quite a few games I need for my collection and some great upgrades as well! Thanks so much Bil!! Looking forward to hopefully doing some more business down the road.  This has been in the works for a while and I really again want to thank him!

-From Bil - All of them are Complete in Box -

Top Row of Games - These were all games I needed to cross off my list: Crash 'n' The Boys, Great Waldo Search, Mafat Conspiracy, Race America, Roundball 2 on 2, Target: Renegade, Ultimate Air Combat.

My Brothers Pick ups -
-How To Win At Nintendo Games - First Print Release - From Half Price Books $2.00
-Riviera: The Promised Land - GBA - Complete In Box Mint - He got from a local store cheap
-LEGO Jurassic World - Target Exclusive (I think)
-LEGO Jurassic World Strategy Guide - From GameStop - Little back story this guide except for Amazon or other online outlets his hard to track down my friend Scott said most GameStops got 2-4 guides.
-Two Odysessy 2 Manuals to complete our copies

(http://i.imgur.com/EbQpGX6.jpg)

Then! Of course my brother passed me money so I could buy some Big Box PC Games from another one of our very own NES_Rules!  Thanks so much!!!  He really enjoyed going through them!

Two weekends ago was a bi annual flea market that I always score huge at.  On top of that, the day before there was a flea market at a local church and a mile long sale in my town.  The church flea market had two games I already had and the mile long sale didn't happen because they forgot to let anyone know about it.  Nice move assholes.

The bi-annual flea market wasn't a complete bust, but the amount of gaming stuff was way, way down from previous years.  Overall, what was shaping up to be one of my biggest weekends ever turned into a pretty big let down.

(http://i58.tinypic.com/2whgn01.jpg)

I should have included these in my last batch of pictures, but I forgot about them.  They were all brand new and $1 a piece from one of my regular thrifts.  The Interplay compilation is really the only thing that moves the needle for me, but I'll take big box PC games any day.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/2d144t1.jpg)

Kmart is going to stop carrying video games, so they are liquidating everything they have left.  This is what I picked up at a local store. for 90 cents to $3, except for Atelier Meruru and Legendary.  I got those from Gamestop.  Pretty weak stuff.  I got most of the games for my daughter to play and also my inability to walk away from games priced at $3 or less.

(http://i59.tinypic.com/2mzcl1v.jpg)

I picked these up from a garage sale I went to after the Saturday flea market and mile long sale busts.  I paid $25 for the whole lot.

Finally, here's the stuff I picked up from the big flea market:

(http://i58.tinypic.com/s5g5mo.jpg)
(http://i61.tinypic.com/2hg65xe.jpg)

Most of the games were $1 a piece except for Monster Hunter which was $5 and Contra Legacy of War which was $2.  Contra also had Twisted Metal 2 in it, so I guess technically those were $1 a piece too.  The Dragon's Lair lunch box has been at the past three flea markets that this seller had gone too, and I finally managed to talk him down to $15.  It doesn't have the Thermos, but it's in pretty good condition.  The Monopoly game is missing most of the player tokens, but has everything else.  For $2 I'm not going to complain too much.

Finally I got these for $2 a piece, because come on.  Look at home awesome these things are.

(http://i61.tinypic.com/i54vv5.jpg)

Admit it, you think these things are boss hog.

Some great finds lately, especially in the big box PC realm!  Here's what I scored today!

My GC & PS2 Goodwill finds:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-06/7DB7D8DB-2260-4EA0-B261-F183803955C5.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-06/7DB7D8DB-2260-4EA0-B261-F183803955C5.jpg.html)

My original PlayStation finds, all CIB, except the original Spyro game. The One Crash game has one of those inserts where it's the heavy card stock with the multiple images that change when you turn it to the left or right, but not an actual manual. Anyone know what that's about, or does anyone else have that edition? I can only assume it belongs with those other Crash "collectors edition" games, but it looks different.  Also, I found a PS2 network adapter disc. I have an adapter already, so that was nice to find.

And another big score of Game Boy manuals from the same game shop as last time! Glad to have that SGB manual also!

Nice grabs metal! So jealous of those spyro black labels and the ape escape black label and love the game boy manuals been dry around here for manuals lately.

Thanks! I already own Spyro 2 & 3, as well as Ape Escape, but all greatest hits versions, so yes, I was super stoked to find original black label copies in the wild, especially at Goodwill, where I wouldn't get honked on the price, just because of the color of the packaging! I thought the 3 Crash games were an interesting find as well, since I'd never seen those before.

The CEs are from the Crash Bandicoot Collectors' Edition:

Hey now!

Sorry I haven't contributed as frequently as I usually do; summertime tends to be bummertime for thrift finds around here.

But don't break out the crying hankies just yet-- I managed to tap a good vein of goodies over the last couple weeks:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%206-17-2015a_zpsrdpdonxo.jpg)

@Zagnorch: fantastic finds!

On the subject of the Genesis Collection, I think there's a bit of lag with it, so just be aware.  I was playing through Sonic 2 a while back, and I noticed that it wasn't quite as responsive as I felt it should be, as compared to playing on a Genesis.

were you on HDMI? that can sometimes introduce minute amounts of lag i've heard. i've so far only used it for Phantasy Star, noticed no issues with slow paced games like that.

Hit the other two retro games plus stores that I don't work at and picked up this nice lot.
(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/06/23/f49f9d47889c9ec2eb97bddc331653bc.jpg)
I got the MadDog McGree off eBay for $10 shipped. Can't wait to play it. Loved the sega CD one.

The T&C Surf Designs and Tiger-Heli were just the boxes since I already had the games. $5 a piece. and I love the Rampage series so had to snag the sequel. I need the manual though.

Also love me some old school shooters so picked up Crypt Killer on the Playstation. Have to check work tomorrow for a justifier.

Got the new Batman from Best Buy.  Castlevania: Symphony of the Night came from a trade with FibroFreak.  The PlayStation TV bundle came from Groupon of all places.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with that thing, but the deal was too good to pass up.  I'm sure I'll make use of it eventually.

Picked up Mobile Light Force and Strikers 1945 from dsheinem, they arrived on Friday

(http://oi62.tinypic.com/efijb6.jpg)

and one day later...

I picked up this cabinet with a Strikers 1945 marquee, Strikers 1945 board, 1943 board, and a spare arcade LCD monitor (not pictured here).  The only problem with the current setup is that the remote settings board had a cracked pot so the CRT is goofy and I can't adjust it.  Anyone have a solution for this? I can't find the board for sale anywhere online (part # on it is 8264P-001B).  It does all work nicely though, of course I did confirm it via the LCD before I bought it.

Replace the potentiometer... Looks easy enough to do. Not sure what value ones to use though.
Someone says (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,82656.msg865537.html#msg865537) that V-Size is a 200 ohm one, so maybe V-Pos is the same?
I don't know if you can get a matching style.

Sweet replacement buttons on this NES remote.

Desecrating wavebirds wasn't enough for you, huh, you sicko? Now you're moving on to vandalizing NES controllers? For shame!


Love the New Kids on the block special edition silent service haha

You could say that particular copy of Silent Service has really got it... the right stuff, that is.

Looks like it's really... hangin' tough there.

Dear lord, why do I keep doing this? Someone please stop me before I pun again! Can't you see I need help?!

Wow. It's been ages since I've posted in here. Money/time/other have really hamstrung my ability to buy anything for the last few months, but I found some time to get out yesterday and came home pretty happy.

The guides are, by far, the best things I found. All three are in terrific shape, and set me back about $45. The Brigandine guide alone can bring nearly double that. Most of the rest, aside from MERCS, were incredibly inexpensive - the Wii games were all $3.99, and the PS1 games $1.99. MERCS was about $17, and is in very nice shape.

picked up a couple new games for about $20 total, canadian. Beyond Two Souls i've had my eye on forever, Crackdown is because of Bil's endless recommendation of it on the Collectorcast.

close...it's the G110, essentially the G19 but without the screen ;)

Man I can't wait to try some VR.

it's extremely complicated to get it working, i've only just got it working with its own demos and some rift-designed videos. went to try it with battlefield 3, no native support so it needs an extra piece of software as a work-around...that costs $50. i'll look into how many other games that software will fix for this, if it's enough it might be worth it. native support in retail games is almost non-existant, every game takes a bunch of research and modding to get it running.

the one that i'm most excited about (because it's best suited to this modding requirement) is Minecraft. gave it a quick try but i must have missed something because it crashed so i'll try again some other time.

tl;dr i'm happy i have it because it is really cool, but unless you're a real enthusiast (which i'd like to think i am) i would highly recommend waiting until the final consumer version is out at retail and there are retail games designed to work with it.

That's pretty neat. I certainly keep and eye on the VR story, planning on getting one myself, trying very hard to hold out for the consumer version. Oculus seems likely but with Valve and others throwing their hats in the ring, I'm not sure which one I'll want when the time comes.....anyways, that's awesome you got one.

Frogger was off ebay and from Brazil. It is one of the few Brazil-only Odyssey2 games. It's not that I am set on picking up everything O2, but when games come up cheap, I'll grab ones I don't have. Because when you have the complete Odyssey^2 library, what are you going to do? Collect for other systems? Pffft!

The INTV game was from a mom&pop used game store about an hour from here. I've been trying to get INTV games CIB when I can but this was there and I didn't have it, you know how it is. The best part was going there with our very own SirPsycho! The wife and I got to hang out with him all yesterday evening. SirPsycho was in the area with family doing family stuff and took the time to meet us. We went to that store, had dinner and went to that apparently famous arcade in Portland, Ground Kontrol. It was pretty fun. SirP got to show me how much better he is than me at Turtles in Time, wife got to play pinball for hours and I got to show off my RoadBlasters skills by getting 4th on their high scores list, with only one try  :)   

All of us got to see what the current Portland Hipster scene is like, my wife told me it was okay because 'I was into retro collecting before it was cool.'

Nice nupoile, I went to ground kontrol last weekend when I was down there seeing a friend. Pretty nice, little arcade. Also thanks for sharing your finds, feels so refreshing to see pre-nes games.

Nice job, Retrorage, Mega Man 5 is the only one I am missing from the NES releases. And wow does that box look good.

@Slowman - jealous of that Strikers 1945 cab!

It's my first arcade cabinet! 

Long term I think I will clean it up, fix/replace the remote adjustment board, and change it to a 1943 cabinet simply because it's not an official Strikers 1945 cabinet.  Plus it already is shaped like many 1943 cabinets in Google image search.  Then I will build a new tabletop or minimal/shortie cabinet around the LCD screen and Strikers 1945 board.  I would really only need to pick up a few buttons, a joystick, a power supply, JAMMA harness, speakers, and appropriate (and preferably cheaply-sourced) wood.  I have the expensive bits of a second cab already.

Picked up some stuff today from the thrifts. Got this cool Epyx 500XJ Joystick for the Atari 2600 for a couple bucks.

Believe it or not, I did not have LoZ in my collection. Picked it up for a pretty good price. Picked up the 3 of these bookcases and the magazine/record holder, and now I am rearranging my game room. Hopefully this can solve some of my storage issues I was having.

I have all that Turtles in Time skill because every time I fire up my SNES copy I hook up my Capcom stick for that arcade experience!

Here's all I grabbed during our visit to the game store. I need to find some more Genesis games that can support 4 player fun times! I know General Chaos and Mega Bomberman can.

I was surprised when I first heard about this vinyl so I ended up preordering both limited editions of SOF and Shenmue :P
With all the talk about Shenmue 3 being in development, Datadics will probably also release the Shenmue 2 soundtrack on Vinyl.

I try to not post tons of pictures at once, but I always seem to fail at that.  I'm about to fail again.

Here's the pile of garbage I bought from Amazon recently:

(http://i58.tinypic.com/14v48z9.jpg)
(http://i57.tinypic.com/2e5sbd1.jpg)

Everything was $1-3 as usual.  The Japanese FFIX and Dynasty Warriors for PSP were pretty cool.  Everything else was kind of meh.  I just grabbed them because they were cheap.

Garage sales have kind of sucked this year:

(http://i59.tinypic.com/w1dw84.jpg)

These were all $2 a piece.  The Star Trek game is really the only thing that seemed like a deal to me.

So then I said screw it and went to Disc Replay.  Much better stuff there.

(http://i59.tinypic.com/t89tet.jpg)

Well, technically better.  Any NES games get me excited, but outside of Dragon Spirit these are kind of boring games.  I do love the shit out of Dragon Spirit though.

So then I decided to go back to a few Kmarts to pick up the last few games they had left.

(http://i57.tinypic.com/os6fq0.jpg)
(http://i57.tinypic.com/244xn3a.jpg)

A lot of these were for my daughter like the Hello Kitty DS case and a bunch of the DS games.  Skylanders was only 6ish bucks.

So, onto Gamestop.  They sell games right?

(http://i59.tinypic.com/111mqlj.jpg)

Holy shit!  Quality games!  I decided I was going to start trying to get more RPGs and this is the latest bunch I grabbed.  The PC games were super cheap, so I grabbed those too.

Overall, a bunch of very, very meh games.  A couple decent ones, but nothing too exciting.  Do you think thrifts helped saved the day?  It depends!  I don't know what you like!

(http://i62.tinypic.com/2mevlhu.jpg)
(http://i57.tinypic.com/95whe1.jpg)
(http://i57.tinypic.com/2ho8uj6.jpg)

All of the games in the second two pictures were $1-2 a piece and the controllers were $1.50 a piece.  The various books in the pictures were 20 cents a piece.  The PC games in the first picture were all $1 piece and the Xbox games were $3 a piece, with the big surprise being Sniper Elite III for $6.  My favorite thing just for pure weirdness is the Email for Gameboy thing in the first picture.  I didn't even know that was a thing.

And in case all that isn't geeky enough for you, I also grabbed all of these for $20 total.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/acc0fb.jpg)

100 comic books ranging from the early 80's to the mid 2000's.  I don't grab them that often, but I couldn't pass these up.

And I think that's all for this week.  I went nuts again this week, so expect another post in a few days that looks  a lot like this one.

That's a truckload of PS2 titles! My local store was running a $1 PS2 sale for select games last weekend, but I didn't make it out. Now's a great time to get into that system before the nostalgia kicks in.

nothing PS2 exists up here for less than $5 canadian :( that $40 lot probably would have cost at $500 - $1000 in any of the stores around here.

I'm coveting that Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

Yeah, I kinda lucked out.  All these games are very welcome additions to my collection.  However, I doubt I'll ever have trade bait as good as what I offered to Nick again, so I had to make this trade a good one.

You know that Indiana Jones is something I need... ;)

all_kaps - Welcome and awesome scores!! If you ever decide to sell any big box PC Games I know someone who likes that type of stuff ;-) But anyways that PS1/PS2/Atari Lot was amazing as well. 

Shaggy - I still some stuff for you and I might be getting some more NES games down the road so keep an eye out.

@SirPsycho - R-Type Final, good stuff!

New Member here! Just wanted to share my last few scores - got this lot of PS2/PS1/Atari games off Craigslist for $40 (http://i.imgur.com/cwjeGU4.jpg) 
Picked up all these Big Box PC games at a rummage sale for .25 cents each - $7 total.

Picked up Medievil, Croc, and Spyro (not shown) - all in perfect minty fresh condition for $9 total at a thrift store.

WOW, that's a haul!  I thought I was doing well snagging PS2 and Xbox games at $2 a piece at a local pawn shop, but that's an amazing batch of games!  Some great titles in the PS2 batch, plus Syphon Filter 2 on PS1, a great game.  Welcome to the site!

Well, I finished building my junk box and took it in to trade. I've been complaining about a lack of space, so I just freed up a lot of it, while also getting these for free in the end!

I went to a security conference yesterday in the "big city", so naturally, I visited as many game shops as I could, looking for good stuff.  Here are my general retro game finds:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/3E976B8B-01C4-4719-8CB3-4BA77DF4B9F6.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/3E976B8B-01C4-4719-8CB3-4BA77DF4B9F6.jpg.html)

I paid more than I wanted to for Earthworm Jim, but it's CIB, AND has a poster/ad included with it, so I figured it might be worth the money.  I was unaware that the Genesis received a conversion of Super Street Fighter II, which is odd, but that's my favorite in the series, so I'll be glad to play it on my Genesis with the fighter stick I have :)

Here are my Game Boy finds, including a couple games I've never heard of:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/9275AB7A-D35D-4DD0-8EB4-9C58C72E6AC6.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/9275AB7A-D35D-4DD0-8EB4-9C58C72E6AC6.jpg.html)

And finally, my loose manual finds, which I got for an absolute STEAL of a deal:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/7BBC3845-DF33-40AD-A72F-58E759C155CA.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/7BBC3845-DF33-40AD-A72F-58E759C155CA.jpg.html)

Hey all my brother and I went out on a day we actually had off together (last Friday) and he picked up a few things and I grabbed a couple cheap items myself (nothing over a couple of bucks).  We have been thrifting more than hitting up the chain stores around here as we have decided to cut back a little to get ahead on stuff, and I have been working on inventoring a lot more in detail, including finding more doubles and stuff to list. 

So here it is -
Goodwill -
*Game Boy Color/Game Boy Pocket V3.1 GameShark - Says $2.99 got it for $0.99
*Walk It Out - $0.99
*Bayonetta - $0.99
*Dark Age of Camelot - Platinum Edition - I think my brother has every version of Dark Age of Camelot now :-P - $1.99
*World in Conflict: Soviet Assault - Sealed - $0.99

and - 2 - PS3 Sixaxis Controllers for $0.99 a piece

Salvation Army -
*Porky's The Ultimate Collection - $1.00 (I bought this)

(http://i.imgur.com/JKhtAov.jpg)

Got some deals in the works with some our very awesome members  :-) Once I get the items I'll most definitely post it!

I know what you are thinking, "I thought Bil was selling down a bit cause of the new house, second baby, etc."  I am, lemme Splain.

I AM trimming the collection down but this machine came up locally and it was too good to pass up.  Its a Mortal Kombat 1 conversion to a Tekken Tag Tournament.  Its in amazing shape and it was a great price.  It's my first JAMMA cab so I can swap things into it if I happen across any other boards.  Just need t add a couple buttons for SF/MK play.

Btw congrats on the 2nd bambino Bily.

Picked up a few things over the weekend.  Here are my Goodwill finds:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/C378622D-6FC2-422A-ABBB-976CBAB7A075.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/C378622D-6FC2-422A-ABBB-976CBAB7A075.jpg.html)

The TMNT Tournament Fighters is in super rough shape, but the game shop near me has a loose cart in really good shape for $50, so $5 seemed like a good price to at least have a working copy.  And yes, that IS the Mega Man Zero collection for DS that I found at Goodwill!

Here are my pawn shop finds - particularly happy about the Breath of Fire game, as well as the Game Boy "Race Days" game, which is a 2-in-1 racing game collection of some sort.  I've never heard of it, so it will be interesting to see what it's all about.

Shadow's Wife: "We'll fix it up. Put it in the garage."

:D

If it were up to my wife, we'd have a lot more arcade machines. Still, a fighting game cab is awesome to have around if you have someone to play with.

KEEPER!  I'm quite thrilled to have th is machine in time for the RetroWorld Expo company that I'm expecting in October.  I know it's a haul for you, Shadow, but we'd love to see you.  I don't know if I could keep Izret away if I found a decent price on an MKII board.  Come to think of it, he probably owns an MKII board..

It's in mint condition, so I'm guessing maybe someone bought it online, it didn't work, and it sat on a shelf until the decided to sell it in the rummage sale.

So, this morning, my realtor from 4 years ago gave me a call. He said, "Are you going to be in your office in the next 15 minutes? I have something I want to bring you." I said "Sure," and he came by and dropped this off........Colecovision system with all hookups, wheel, 14 loose games, and 2 CIB 2600 titles. Always let people know you are a game collector, it pays off. :)  Since I already have a Colecovision and all of these games, I am going to upgrade my carts and sell/trade everything. Still on the fence about the iMagic CIB 2600 games, they are super nice. This will also be on my FS/FT thread in the next few days after I get everything cleaned and tested, but PMs are welcome.

Such a great system, but it was overshadowed by the 2600. You know how much I love the 2600, but I'll admit that the Colecovision was a superior system.

If you have any loose doubles to sell, send me a list. You have a few I don't have Shadow.  ;D

Darn, was going to ask about the power supply since I need one for mine.

Here are my pickups this week. Found a couple japanese PS1 games, not sure I want them, so willing to trade for them. Got another Laserdisc player which will replace the other one I have, since this one is better.  Got a Talkboy, missing the battery cover but it works at least, will probably make it available for trade.  Kinda cool to find a TI-99 game at the thrifts, since I never see them really anywhere except online. Sadly my TI-99 does not work. Picked up some more guides, and Magic the Gathering Battlegrounds and Art of Fighting for SNES for cheap.

My favorite pickup this week so far, is the Wico Command Control Joystick for Atari 2600, these things are great joysticks, and glad to now have one.

My favorite pickup this week so far, is the Wico Command Control Joystick for Atari 2600, these things are great joysticks, and glad to now have one.


Laserdisc must not have been a thing in my area.  I keep my eyes open for them at flea markets and Goodwills, but every likely suspect is actually just a 5-disc CD changer.

I recently picked up a Wico Command Control Joystick (ball type) at a flea market after hearing the hype on these things for a while.  Once I had that ball in my hand, I finally understood what everyone was talking about.

I have no idea why they didn't call that record "Clashlevania".

All of the Moonshake pressings, have had some kind of theme/spoof, to the album covers. The Mega Man album was an homage to Heroes by David Bowie, Zelda was Dark Side of the Moon, Castlevania is obviously London Calling, and the NES greatest Hits is done Andy Warhol style, with four toasters on one side of the jacket, and four power gloves on the other.

- Mega Man Battle Network 3 Blue GBA cart, $3.99

- Mega Bloks Skylanders Giants Cynder pack, $0.99: This will likely be the only version of the sparkly-purple 2012 Toy Fair Cynder I'll ever be able to afford.

- Radio Shack Helicopter Attack and Sonic Sea Battle Handhelds, $4.99 for both: Thanks to its impending demise, I'll latch on to just about anything with the Radio Shack brand on it. However, I have another reason for getting Sonic Sea Battle:

I did not get that. I bought two, so I got one clear, and one white. I had heard he had messed up a bunch, and printed them with two side B's or something. He probably threw one in with your other record to try and get rid of some.

My "scores" for the weekend. I can come back and post pics, not really that exciting.

Over the weekend I scored an Atari 800. Not an XL, just a regular 800 (the XLs seemed more common in my searches). I haven't actually powered it on yet. It's been in a garage for literally 22 years (exposed to heat/cold). I figure I would probably give it a once over before attempting to test the 30+ year old solder joints. Right? Also, I don't have a power adapter for it yet. Might try a universal power (unless somebody expresses doubts on that).
I got it with 10 cartridges. One of them is AtariWriter and one is BASIC programming, the rest I believe are games. And some 5 1/4" floppies, most of which are games.

I also have several manuals for the thing. Haven't combed through those yet.

Also a tape deck - Atari 1010 - but no cable to connect to the computer or power adapter that either.

I did actually get several data storage cassettes (16K on a cassette? amazing!).  In fact one of them, Early Games for Young Children, according to Atari Mania, is a 8/10 rarity (http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-early-games-for-young-children_1782.html) (I only have the cassette). Some of the other cassettes and floppies are also 5s and 6s but no 8s. I mean based on the assumption that particular guide is accurate. And the cassettes/floppies actually work. Which I don't actually have anyway to test.

@EngineerMike: nice find on that Demon's Crest cart!  That's the only one I need to complete the Gargoyle's Quest trilogy :)

@subassy - first, welcome!  Second, awesome find!  If I had more space in my house, I would love to get more into 80's micro computers, especially the Atari line like that.  Very cool.

I forgot to post my finds from this last weekend, so here are my scant few garage sale finds, though they're good:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/C5ECF955-6DA8-4BC3-A279-6E1DBFFB67DF.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/C5ECF955-6DA8-4BC3-A279-6E1DBFFB67DF.jpg.html)

Here are a few nice pawn shop finds - particularly happy about the Haven find, as well as finally getting Arkham Asylum for next to nothing:

Dark Alliance II is kind of a big one for me. Been looking for it forever, and it seems to get rarer and rarer. Somehow the price has crept lower and lower over the years, and someone posted a copy on 99gamers for a reasonable price two weeks ago. Then he messed up the trade and I figured I wasn't going to get the game, but he messaged me a few days later and offered me the game again at an even lower price. Deception IV is also from 99gamers.

Also, this came in the mail from Mister Heynow. I actually got the base and the other figures from Santa 'Norch's not so secret Santa last year and my wife picked up the game for me. So now the thing is complete. I promise I'll play it someday, but I have a serious amount of Skylandering to catch up on. Thanks again Zag.

I've had a few minor things here and there recently that I haven't posted, but these I just had to share.

First off, a buddy helped me get a good deal on the Dark Souls II CE, which I've been eying for some time.
(http://i1023.photobucket.com/albums/af356/jackcrow2000/A76443C8-1277-4D65-85B3-B9BF523CDB47_zps2qsa5xco.jpg) (http://s1023.photobucket.com/user/jackcrow2000/media/A76443C8-1277-4D65-85B3-B9BF523CDB47_zps2qsa5xco.jpg.html)

Today I dropped by my local GameXchange. I'm in there pretty often, and the guys there are always really great and look out for me. They know I've been working on completing my licensed NES titles, and they had this one tucked away for me. It has some label damage, but for the price they charged me I'm more than happy to have it. Only one more left!

Decided to pop into a thrift on a whim. 

(http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c394/bombatomba77/20150722_210100_zps2jqkyyve.jpg)

Got a 50% off coupon, so I got the lot for $5.  There was a Jack Nicklaus Sierra Big Box game hidden in board games, but it only had junk in it.  The Aces game more than made up for it.  I have to admit, I've forgotten how much fun thrifting can be.  I might do this more often.

@DisposedHero, Nice selection of games you picked up. Big Boost to your collection!

@GrayGhost:  I just checked out some gameplay of Astro Boy, and I was expecting a sidescroller.  I think I had this version confused with the GBA version.  Oh well, the PS2 version still looks cool.

@Duke.Togo - fantastic find on Zombie Nation! I think I'm one of the few people who played the game as a rental back during that time. I would never have guessed then that it would become such a collectors item!

@GrayGhost:  I just checked out some gameplay of Astro Boy, and I was expecting a sidescroller.  I think I had this version confused with the GBA version.  Oh well, the PS2 version still looks cool.

Yeah, the Sonic Team game, which you have, is an awesome 3-D action adventure. The movie tie-in game from 2009 is in fact a sidescroller, but it is mediocre at best.

Ah, I wasn't aware of the game from 2009.  I was thinking of this game on the GBA, which is supposedly pretty good:

Picked up at my local Christian Thrift Store this weekend.  Almost have one of workers who handles the drop off convinced to call me when they get new stuff in. The NES that got donated with it looked in good shape but I wanted to give someone else in my area a chance at one.. no need to be greedy.

Solid $11 investment IMHO.

great Find, I love my NES Satellite. I use it a lot. I feel it is not too bad about battery usage, either. I too do the same thing when I find stuff, I already have, and don't really need to pick up. I see Sega Genesis Systems all the time, and I don't feel the need to pick up anymore. I figure if I already have one that I play on and a backup. I don't pick it up. I feel like I am giving someone a chance to play the games they loved as a kid.

Riddle of the Sphinx!!! My old next-door neighbor and I used to play that game all the time.  Loved that game as a kid, and need to track down a copy at some point!

Here are my finds from yesterday and today!

Here's what I snagged at a game store in the area:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-08/E8051CE3-FA7A-4D84-84E3-91DDD2D7219C.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-08/E8051CE3-FA7A-4D84-84E3-91DDD2D7219C.jpg.html)

Here are a few decent/random Goodwill finds:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-08/5B3560FD-E172-4AF6-865A-6405C7073E62.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-08/5B3560FD-E172-4AF6-865A-6405C7073E62.jpg.html)

And here's my big pawn shop score for today, between 2 different stores!
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-08/4DA3C45F-8C33-4265-B772-D9A02519C70E.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-08/4DA3C45F-8C33-4265-B772-D9A02519C70E.jpg.html)

Was particularly stoked about the TimeSplitters find, since I saw it at the game store (where I got the manuals, etc. above) for $15, and I paid WAY less than that ;D

That's a nice lot for the original Xbox you got there.

Riddle of the sphinx - I believe bickman2K has one on his list of items for sale for around $2 (FYI)

I finally used the NES satellite tonight and had mixed emotions.

Happy to own one and sit on the couch instead of the ground... sad that it took until I was 30 to finally own one..

So last weekend I was helping a friend move, because I am the "friend with a truck".  He said he would give me some old video game stuff he had for helping him out since he no longer needed it.  It turned out to be 2 filing cabinets worth of stuff!
(http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g162/gooberjones/RF%20Generation/20150801_132513_zpshndnksm3.jpg) (http://s56.photobucket.com/user/gooberjones/media/RF%20Generation/20150801_132513_zpshndnksm3.jpg.html)

A bunch of Playstation and Dreamcast games, only one of which I already owned.  (Marvel vs Capcom 2)

(http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g162/gooberjones/RF%20Generation/20150801_114656_zpsbne1evzm.jpg) (http://s56.photobucket.com/user/gooberjones/media/RF%20Generation/20150801_114656_zpsbne1evzm.jpg.html)

Boxed N64 games, some longbox Playstation games, a GBA with a bunch of accessories, sealed gamecube memory card, all sorts of stuff.  Not pictured is the Dreamcast, N64, controllers or the GunCons that also came with it.  Oh and one more N64 game that I have been looking for this box ever since mine was accidentally thrown away when I moved to Florida.

(http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g162/gooberjones/RF%20Generation/20150805_110225_zpsxnbskt7n.jpg) (http://s56.photobucket.com/user/gooberjones/media/RF%20Generation/20150805_110225_zpsxnbskt7n.jpg.html)

I also found this at a tabletop game store in St. Augustine.  It looks fun and I can't wait to play it.

Picked this stuff during the week. 

Picked up these D is for Destiny children's book released by Bungie as a Promo for Destiny. I can't find any info on them at all. So if you have any info about these let me know. All I know is that only about 500 were printed. I put one of them up for sale on ebay, just to see what I can get for it.  Not sure if I am charging too much, but I guess we will see.

Got an Atari Jaguar Controller for 5.99 at Goodwill. Don't have a jaguar yet, but glad I was able to find a controller for cheap. This means when I get one, I don't have to spend a lot of money on a controller.

Picked up a CIB Merlin Electronic Game for 3.99, War of the Monsters for 6.99, and Bomberman Generation for 3.99, Wario Wii Smooth Moves for 10.00

This is a very good friend who did a lot of console gaming in the past, but now mostly spends his time on Steam and LoL.  So I am now enjoying the spoils of all his collecting over the years.

It has been a while since I posted pics in this thread so here we go. (Photobucket is throwing a fit so sorry if the pictures are a little stretched.

I imported some beer from Wisconson (No this is not Trials Fusion Beer)

I received a book for Father's Day: (If you like the NES you need to read this book)

I took my son to Savers to look for some toys and he picked this out... What can I say he has good taste.  ;)

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/cisco678/pickup/megaman_zps8uusajzk.jpg)

While we were at Savers we picked up a couple games: ( I told them I knew Zag so they gave me a discount. Everything in the picture below was $2 each.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/cisco678/pickup/savers_zpsqgeio2n0.jpg)

I picked up some Famicom stuff:

@Addicted: Holy crap! That's a great looking Super Fami, and Gimmick! is fantastic. I haven't looked at prices on that one since I bought mine, but I hope the gaming gods were kind to you. I have I Am Error. I'm almost finished with it, and really enjoy it. Racing the Beam is another book in the same series about the 2600 if you enjoyed this one.

Post by: Sauza12 on August 07, 2015, 09:29:05 PM
So here's all the stuff I picked up as of July 25th.  Just a mere two weeks ago, which of course means I have another stack of game stuff to take pictures of already.  It's a never ending cycle.

I think I've jumped into this Amiibos thing with both feet.  I'm already planning on going out tomorrow to reserve the retro 3 pack from Gamestop.  They just look so cool.

(http://i60.tinypic.com/mrs743.jpg)

Garage Sales continue to suck, but at least I got some slightly cool stuff this time

(http://i58.tinypic.com/21o0dis.jpg)

The NES Games were $5 a piece and the O2 game was $3.

Here's the random stuff I've picked up from ye old internet

(http://i61.tinypic.com/2m5ml2q.jpg)

The top three games and the GBA game were all less than $2.  The XBone and PS3 games were all between $10 and $15 and the Gamecube for WiiU adapter was something like $16.

Gamestop had a couple of different buy 2 get 1 free sales, so I took a tour through all of my local gamestops and cleared out all of their 360 games that were under $3 as well as some other more expensive games I've been meaning to pick up, all of their Wii games that were $1 and a bunch of PS3 games and a 3DS game that I just wanted.  I also picked up some cheap PC games:

(http://i57.tinypic.com/2i27cs4.jpg)
(http://i62.tinypic.com/154g7qv.jpg)

Highlights from the 360 include Konami Classics Vol. 1, Eternal Sonata and Cursed Crusade.  Highlights for the Wii include Drahon's Lair Trilogy (Okay, this was $15, but you try finding it anywhere but the internet.  Can't be done), Sam and Max Season 1 and 2, Obscure, the Aftermath and Cursed Mountain among a ton of others.

Speaking of game stores, Disc Replay had a buy 2 get 1 free sale on all disc based systems sale, so I grabbed these:

(http://i61.tinypic.com/25jfvq9.jpg)

I can't remember where I got Assassin's Creed from.  I think it was less than $10 though.  That's kind of bad.

Finally my thrift store pick ups:

(http://i57.tinypic.com/2gtxher.jpg)
(http://i61.tinypic.com/11afxa0.jpg)
(http://i60.tinypic.com/2me68go.jpg)
(http://i57.tinypic.com/65ae52.jpg)
(http://i59.tinypic.com/2mee6uc.jpg)

Not a lot to say here.  They're all pretty standard thrift store things.  The Kinect was kind of cool at $12.  All of that Everquest stuff was in the box for the Everquest game I found, so it was just a ton of freebies.

That's it!  Until next time!

First of all ... On vacation ... My fiance gave me this wonderful gift where he said he got from work (Goodwill) for less than $1 ...

And then I got these for $4 at a local resale store where I'm good friends with the owner and they have me all 3 for the price of 1

Stopped at my local christian thrift store after catching the 50% sign out of the corner of my eye while on my way home from work to my daughters daycare and ended up finding these. Games are normally $2 each and the wii accessories bundle was marked at $4 so with the sale I ended up walking out with everything for $5.
My wii fit was the pack in game that came with the sleeve so I have been on the look out for a good deal on the case and manual. I've been holding out for the original wii wheels due to personal selectiveness for original items and couldn't pass up getting it , the Nerf sports set and the Nintendo brand gun.

Hey now,

You can't play with your Amiibos on that!

Can you play Amiibos on anything? We can play Disney Infinity and actually use the figures for something other then decorations.

In about six weeks, you'll be able to play two specific Amiibos-- four if you're counting variants-- in the latest entry of a certain video game series you may have heard of. You know, the one that birthed the "toys-to-life" video game industry? The one that, had it not been a hit, there never would have been Disney InfINity for you to spend your discretionary income on? And yet you deride it at every opportunity, when you should be humbly kneeling before it each and every night, profusely uttering your eternal gratitude for its success! You ought to be ashamed of yourself, ya heathen...  :P


Speaking of Skylanders, I recently picked up a sealed Series 3 Jet-Vac, along with a few other things.

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%208-10-2015a_zpscwz8w1fz.jpg?t=1439184070)

- CIB Sonic Rivals for PSP

- CIB Final Fantasy Origins (FF I&II) for PS1

- GBA carts: Midway's Greatest Arcade Hits and Dungeons & Dragons: Eye of the Beholder

- CIB Kinetica and Airforce Delta Strike for PS2

- CIB Warriors Orochi for 360

- CIB Prince of Persia: The Fallen King, Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of the Ancient Arts and Super Scribblenauts (not pictured) for DS

- CIB Japanese DS game which is roughly Google-translated as "Five Years Kanji Calculation Weak Hunter DS." Sounds like fun, right? Aaaand Shadz will give us the lowdown on this game in 3... 2...1...

Aaaand finally: CIB Balance of Power: The 1990 Edition IBM PC game on 5.25" floppy.

Got both of these from Gamestop, as I had both a coupon and a gift card. Calling is a game I've been hunting for a while, and this is the only time I've ever seen a copy. It inexplicably shot up in value about a year ago but has leveled off lately so I was happy to grab it. Speaking of grabbing it, I got Criminal Girls because I am a pervert.

(http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h32/grayghost81/IMG_20150811_194049_928-1_zpseodpbjhr.jpg) (http://s60.photobucket.com/user/grayghost81/media/IMG_20150811_194049_928-1_zpseodpbjhr.jpg.html)

And these don't qualify as a score technically as I'm just borrowing them from a coworker, but I thought it would be cool to share the pic. Ninja Boy 1 and 2  and Honoo no Doukyuuji: Dodge Danpei. Cool Stuff. EDIT: Before anyone corrects me I realize they're known as Super Chinese Land 1 and 2 in Japan.

I have had a pending trade with Gamernick for awhile now, and I got them in the mail the other day, everything you see except for Power Blade was a part of the trade.


I got Power Blade for 11.00 at Value Village. It was originally 14.99 but I had a coupon which brought the price down.  I got really lucky because as I was walking into the store it was sitting on a cart waiting to be shelved.  A customer came in after me, who was looking at games, he seemed to be disappointed that I was able to grab it before him. I could kinda see it on his face.  
I have had that look on my face plenty of times. I understand what it is like to just miss something because you were a little too late. It happened to me not but a week ago, when I saw a guy grab a bunch of Jap & Big Box PS1 games. I was quite disappointed.

Oh, Fokakis, you edged out the deal I got on Power Blade last Christmas ($12.50).  Snagged it out of a resale shop having a 50% off sale.  I would have been super jelly of that Last Starfighter, as I mourned its unavailability during my own trade with GamerNick, but I recently picked it up for $5 at a local flea market.

As for missing deals, well, I did miss out on a huge lot of CIB NES games at the local resale shop I mentioned.  It was amazing.  I went in for weeks with nothing new to see, only to miss out on those games by a few minutes.  Such is life.

Wow, Power Blade for 11 bucks? That's why I get mad when people say there aren't deals out there any more. There are....you just need to keep looking. Speaking of which, I stopped at a thrift store last week that's been hit or miss, and I'm glad I did. Over in the toy section, for $15 bucks, I grabbed this complete in box Dreamcast system. Finally! I own a Dreamcast! (http://i.imgur.com/WksdjBd.jpg)

@Addicted: Holy crap! That's a great looking Super Fami, and Gimmick! is fantastic. I haven't looked at prices on that one since I bought mine, but I hope the gaming gods were kind to you. I have I Am Error. I'm almost finished with it, and really enjoy it. Racing the Beam is another book in the same series about the 2600 if you enjoyed this one.

@Duke Thanks! I was happy to find one that wasn't discolored.

Regarding Gimmick! I paid a little more than normal for Gimmick but finding a legit copy has been really hard of late. It was still north of $225.

I started reading Racing the Beam but I need to finish I am Error first. Both books are great!

Have you played Majou Densetsu II? It inspired La Mulana which itself has been called a 2D Dark Souls.

Goodwill actually had a few nice PC games. I wanted Jade Empire more than the others, and it has everything with it, poster, art book, and manual.

A longbox Tekken? This is a dupe for me, so if you want to buy or trade for it hit me up.

Lollypop, Steel Sky, Street Racer and Worms for PC

Spoiler (hover to show)
Most likely played Worms but I know Steel Sky is also one of the more popular adventure games out on the Amiga. Lollypop is a fine platformer from 1994 and the PC CD edition even has some nice CD tracks. Street Racer is originally from the SNES in 1994 so it arrived late on both the PC and Amiga in 1997.

FAIR WARNING: I use those kinds of cassette cases to store my own bare Genesis/MD carts. Be very careful opening and closing the drawers. If one of the carts shifts in its spot in the drawer and misaligns, it can jam it shut.



On another note: 2 for $1?! On what looks to be a 36-cassette drawer case?! I'm lucky if I find one for $2.99 or less at any of my local thrifts!  :(

Hey, speaking of cassettes:

Picked up over half the Supercharger game library a couple years back. It was one of my more memorable thrifting finds:

I ran into that when I was first loading it up before the picture. The far right drawer is not full, so the carts were falling over and got in the way of everything else. The others are sturdy because they're packed full. That drawer on the left literally holds every single Master System cart I own right now, it was just the right number of slots at 13. So the whole drawer is a 36 slot drawer.

Hey all! Thrift day for my brother he went out with my mom to Omaha as I didn't feel like going out there and didn't have a ton of money..because I finally picked up a few things that I have been saving for..for a while.  One will be on it's way (a joint purchase with my brother) and I finally got enough money saved up for a few things I have had on hold with our Very own Bickman for well a better part of a year haha we both just kept spacing it off lol. Thanks again Bickman!!!

My brother got everything for $1.00 - even the complete in Box Speak & Spell - It was marked at $15 but it was a special tag day he said.  All the Goodwill games were a $1.00 thanks to hook up. And he finally found some Tiger Handhelds been a while.

(http://i.imgur.com/kOjYsvI.jpg)


Both NES were $5.00 a piece says parts only but I am going to work on them and see whats wrong - one of them is the Canadian Mattel Version.  Pokemon Emerald Guide $0.50 with Poster.

(http://i.imgur.com/N1dW1UR.jpg)

and Thank you Bickman for the TG16  and SMS Cards - Controllers are on their way got them cheap - and watching a manual.

I luckily only spent a total of $1.00 on for Indiana Jones books not shown.

Here are today's Goodwill finds - more Xbox games than I usually see at one location. Also, stoked about the Activision collection:

That's the best way to finance the hobby.  Buy lots, flip doubles/games you don't want or need to buy the next one, at least that works for me.

I'm starting to get a boner for original xbox exclusives.  It's like the 32x.  The games aren't very good, but there's a bunch of unique titles and you can get most of them for pennies on the dollar.

And by the way krunch, I see you got a bunch of Star Wars games there.  There's about 900 Star Wars games for the Xbox.

@krunch - looks like a great deal, and a bunch of solid titles for cheap!  That'll provide you a ton of game time.  I've come to really like the original Xbox, despite its quirks.  It's an interesting console.

@shaggy  Sweet NES scores.  Now, don't ruin it by actually playing Peter Pan and the Pirates.  [shiver]

@krunch  The first Xbox really brings back memories for me.  I was an Xbox guy.  I loved it for its quirky titles and robust console functionality.  I ripped many of my CDs to the hard drive to have custom soundtracks in games, and the graphics, coming out of the PS1's era of misaligned and muddy textures, looked like what 3D graphics should look like.  Microsoft tacitly marketed it as a gamer-friendly follow up to the Dreamcast, even snagging Shenmue II for the system.

I really enjoyed my Xbox.  I still have it, in fact, though I softmodded it long ago.  I did have a PS2 eventually, but only when I got one for free.

Post by: krunch on August 18, 2015, 05:43:46 PM
Yeah I'm definitely enjoying collecting for and playing Xbox. Lots of stuff is familiar and lots of stuff is weird half baked that's just fun to see. And there are so many exclusives. And like, exclusive exclusives that were only available at toysrus or blockbuster and stuff. And most games are just so cheap. My local used games store has a 3 for 10$ section full of Xbox games and they aren't bad titles!

Hey All! Well Now this is the art of..wait a minute.  :-)  So I got a couple of packages in the good ole mail two of which were purchases from stuff I sold recently at a local store so had a little cash to spend...not much but a little :-) 

From our very own Tynstar I picked up Dead Rising 2 High Stakes edition since he didn't sell it on the Bay I thought I'd grab it so my brother and I went half on it and Daytona USA is also from him Since i needed the actual long box edition for my set whom of which if you all remember I bought a ton of Saturn games from :-) Thanks again!!!

Then there is Tekken that I got from or very own Sirpsycho! Thanks so much! Another PS1 long box to cross of the list and sell the (lame) Greatest Hits version!

Super Mario Bros. 3 came from a friend although I already have it but this copy is in pretty good shape so an upgrade! Now all I have to do is find the Super Mario 3 manual with the Bros. Under the M.

(http://i.imgur.com/4NZqxmf.jpg)

THEN there is this I was reached out by a member on another collector site that I don't really go to that often and I was amazed at what he had to offer :-)  This is something my brother and I have been after for a long time and thought we would never get it! We already had the cart and manual for this game so a box only we thought would be impossible! Well this guy offered and we split the cost and yeah amazing!! This guy was awesome as well he knew how much it costs and sold it to us for $80.00 so my brother and I went half on that as well :-)

Can You believe $80.00 for this...??

There's the back

I know this was awhile back but for some reason I missed this one. Great find on the Dark Souls Design Works. Been wanting to pick one of those up. Can't wait for Dark Souls 3. I didn't enjoy Bloodborne as much as Demon/Dark Souls series.

I was so sad when Bil picked up his copy of Pitfall 32X CIB w/ Poster for $40, after I passed on it, and then the price sky-rocketed. He's been looking for me ever since, and a few months back I had a pending trade with singlebanana for my copy of MUSHA. Bil found me a copy for a decent price at a convention, and it just so happened to line up with the rest of the trade cost with singlebanana, so I ended up with this beauty finally, along with the 7800 boxes/manuals I received from singlebanana:

We need to find a cheap copy for Bil, so everyone can stop crying over the 32X.  ;D

I'll take a break once I've learned whether or not my mortgage is safe, or I have to sell my house. Mortgage company thing is a fiasco, but if I do actually have to sell my house I have decent equity in it. My wife and I are also considering declaring bankruptcy to deal with the backlog of bills that occurred once she got too sick to work on a regular basis, which would save us from selling the house.

Fun times.  :-\

Disney doesn't need any more of your money; give it to ActiVision instead. Well, actually ActiVision probably doesn't need any more of your money, either. It just doesn't need it less than Disney doesn't need it.

I don't own a single Disney Infinity item/game.

And if you know what's good for you, you never will.

I was actually considering trying the Star Wars one out... but then I saw the figures. Man, did they make them look lame with that rounded-off blocky cartoony deal like they did with the Marvel figs. No offense, but I can never take a Star Wars "toys-to-life" game seriously when the Darth Vader figure looks like this:

(http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/OTQwWDk0MA==/z/dh0AAOSwd0BVz7Rj/$_57.JPG?set_id=880000500F)

(http://i.imgur.com/WuHhr.gif)

[...] I do like the look of the figures better then the Skylanders figures.

Well, that figures... so to speak. No accounting for taste.  :P


All right, time to give the Skylanders/Infinity skirmishes a rest for now.

Picked up a few things here and there:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%208-21-2015_zpsocaqrnrz.jpg?t=1440116456)

- Skylanders Trap Team King Cobra Cadabra variant figure: picked this up for free with a preorder of the Dark Skylanders Superchargers starter set for the Wii U at G*meSt*p. You see any retailer offering a similar promotion for the Star Wars Infinity starter set? Huh?! Me no think so! BTW I wonder if this particular figure is voiced by Billy Dee Williams? Oh wait, that was Colt 45, never mind...

- New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe and Croc 2 GBA carts

- Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World GBA cart

- Action Replay GBA cheat-code thingy

- Jet Force Gemini cart with manual


Aaaand back to you.

I know this was awhile back but for some reason I missed this one. Great find on the Dark Souls Design Works. Been wanting to pick one of those up. Can't wait for Dark Souls 3. I didn't enjoy Bloodborne as much as Demon/Dark Souls series.

Same here. I don't have a PS4, but did play some Bloodborne at a friends. I prefer the Souls series, and can't wait for 3. Also, Dark Souls II Design Works comes out in November. :D

Back when I went to the MGC I was looking at a Demon's Souls DE, but it was really pricey there. My friend mentioned that he had one that he'd be willing to sell me. Fast forward to last week, he gives a really good price on it. It came in yesterday and he even included an extra gift! I really have some of the best friends around.

(http://i1023.photobucket.com/albums/af356/jackcrow2000/10A0DDA0-FDD1-4E9D-8F09-184FEBB84770_zpscho8p875.jpg) (http://s1023.photobucket.com/user/jackcrow2000/media/10A0DDA0-FDD1-4E9D-8F09-184FEBB84770_zpscho8p875.jpg.html)

Now the only one I am missing is the Bloodborne CE, at least until Dark Souls III comes out. :D

Hi All,

Haven't posted my finds in a couple weeks. So here is what I got. I got a bunch of Sega Genesis Black Grid Games I need (Trying to Complete the set). Also got Hard Drivin and a nice copy of King of the Monsters.

Picked up Cobra Command cart, I think I am going to go for a Data East boxed set. Not sure yet. Also got the Orange Gamecube controller at the same place.

Picked up a Space Invaders which brings me to having half of the Atari 520 library.  

I have also been going through my wishlist and picking up games I have listed there. One of those was Treasures of the Deep. Love the atmosphere of this game.

Also picked up Spyro the Dragon Collector's edition, probably will put it up for trade or sale. Don't need it.

Yesterday I made my way to PAX Prime and picked up a few goodies: Vault 111 T-Shirt, Nuka Cola Bottle Opener. Also picked up a cool Fluxx card game.

Oh, and I saw this while I was there:

I've been absent from Small Scores for a while.  Expo planning, new baby on the way (any day now), and craziness at work.  When it rains it pours.

My in laws made the drive up from Florida over the last 2 days and my father is law brought up his "video game closet" and gave all the stuff to me on the condition that it will stay in the family and be loved.  That shouldn't be a problem.   Everything in these pictures are the original systems and games that my father in law purchased when they were first released.

2 Atari 5200 systems with the boxed trackball.  He says he bought a second because the first stopped working so I'll practice my 5200 repair skills once I figure out which one needs them

Awesome

Sorry for the dark pic.  His Odyssey stuff was wrapped in plastic to prevent box wear, which is why everything was so well preserved:

He also kept a handful of the Odyssey Newsletters

And inside the SNES box we found:

and he must have been a Nintendo Power subscriber because:

- CIB Nerf armor for PSP, $3.99

- Tyco Power Plug for Super NES, $2.00: instead of paying through the nose for an enhanced controller with the turbo/slo-mo built-in back in the day, you could have paid through the nose for one of these to enhance your regular controller instead.

Post by: MetalFRO on September 03, 2015, 08:07:36 PM
Some fantastic hauls, everyone! This last week has been eventful for me as well!

Here's my big reveal: a Sony WEGA Trinitron set I got from my coworker, who got it from his parents. They gave it to him to recycle, and he gave it to me, knowing that I would make good use of it with all my game systems. I have it hooked up in the bedroom, and bow howdy is the picture spiffy! I have the Xbox 360 connected via HDMI, and am using S-Video for my SNES, PlayStation, and N64, and am currently rocking the NES and Wii via Composite (more on that later).
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/325D5018-D5DB-43B2-AAC5-222BF720C436.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/325D5018-D5DB-43B2-AAC5-222BF720C436.jpg.html)

Here's my very modest Goodwill haul:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/4FF2D905-9FFB-4CB1-B8BA-3EF7D20942F6.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/4FF2D905-9FFB-4CB1-B8BA-3EF7D20942F6.jpg.html)

My small take from one of the pawn shops - I now have the Xbox unholy trinity of Burger King games!
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/50CEFDCA-8451-4623-9C59-CEB48729C729.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/50CEFDCA-8451-4623-9C59-CEB48729C729.jpg.html)

I hit GameStop to nab some component cables for the Wii, to use on the new TV, and got a good deal on this Wii Batman game also:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/161425DC-F418-4D85-98EE-84ADF1F60A76.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/161425DC-F418-4D85-98EE-84ADF1F60A76.jpg.html)

Here's my lone game store pickup:

And finally, my huge pawn shop haul in multiple parts! First, my original PlayStation finds:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/110742C5-2E1B-4420-9CA6-C4AF72C290FA.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/110742C5-2E1B-4420-9CA6-C4AF72C290FA.jpg.html)

My NES & Genesis scores:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/009BCAFB-0F69-4AEF-A7D6-F86FE41CDC62.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/009BCAFB-0F69-4AEF-A7D6-F86FE41CDC62.jpg.html)

My PS2 grabs:

And my Xbox deals:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/BD0AD646-95EA-4F98-BBBD-149D9145EAF1.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/BD0AD646-95EA-4F98-BBBD-149D9145EAF1.jpg.html)

I'd say I had a pretty good week of game collecting :)

Post by: nupoile on September 03, 2015, 08:35:43 PM
Found some stuff.....



This is pretty awesome. I got Project Cars this summer and needed a wheel. If you don't know, the good ones which I would want, cost $300-500 or more. Certainly there are cheaper ones but I'm sort of 'all-or-nothing' on that sort of thing. So I've been looking for a nice used one. Force feedback and USB are key here.....and guess what I found today? For $7?

(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/691/21124807845_1022ce7c40_o.jpg)

It's old but should work out pretty good, if I can find space for it......





The Wife found Mickeys Typing Adventure on an Amazon deal, for the 5 year old that is at our house much of the time. The others were at a thrift store, I'm a little skeptical if the PC ones will work since there aren't keys with any of them  :-\    but I like the games so it's worth the chance.

(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5757/20936694330_29ecd98b81_o.jpg)





I've been interested in Nintendo controllers recently. Bought this on a whim from Amazon for $9, this morning I realized I don't emulate games and had to go looking for an emulator, found one and a freeware homebrew game to use it on. Honestly I just got it to take it apart and look inside. So to compliment my recent blog entry http://www.rfgeneration.com/blogs/nupoile/What-s-Inside-Nintendo-Controllers-3114.php    soon there will be another which shows the inside of this as well as a similar NES USB controller I am waiting on. I'll review them too. It was only $9, new, so keep that in mind.....

(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/712/20503724733_06b2b0c95c_o.jpg)




You can see some of the 'quality' here:

(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/718/21132555171_c6a711c008_o.jpg)





Picked up a sweet square lcd monitor at the thrift store......

(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/715/20502174824_2d257109f4_o.jpg)



.....because I'm going to set up an old Dell PC in the garage. Notice the monitor stand though, it's pretty good. I might actually use it rather than hang the screen from the wall. The stand isn't made for that particular PC case but everything is Dell, so that's neat...I guess.

Geez, I remember ordering GX260 and 270 desktops years ago for my last job.  I wasn't there log enough to experience that issue, but by that time, as long as the system was under warranty, it was a call to Dell and a mobo replacement.  Interesting to note, though, thank's for the tip.  If I happen across a 270 in the wild, I'll have to remember that.  I think I still have a 260 in my basement somewhere...


Title: Re: The Small Scores Thread: Part 4!
Post by: nupoile on September 04, 2015, 11:17:20 AM
That Dell I have is a GX50. We have 3 of them in a stack in my garage. They used to belong to an afterschool program my wife worked for, they got sent home with her so she could fix them but the program just decided to buy new PC's to replace those and some others. I think the only issue is a dead cmos battery :P    They've just been on a shelf in my garage for years. Lately I've been thinking it'd be nice to be able to look things up or maybe stream audio while tinkering out there so I thought I'd try and get one running. Seemed to work out pretty well to find that Dell monitor and stand to go with it.

I didn't notice any puffy caps or anything when I had it open yesterday but I'll look closer. It is a GX50 rather than a GX270 so maybe they didn't have the problem as much? The project is sort of stalled out because I don't have an extra VGA cable, had to order one from Amazon, should be here Wednesday.

Pick ups this week.

Got some hard to find Intellivision games for 3.00 each (BTW, I need to make some money for a game convention coming up, so I am putting these up for sale on my thread)

Slowly trying to collect all the Mega Man games over the years managed to pick these up for 8.00 total

And, last but not least I got a Reproduction CIB Meteorites for Atari 5200.  Got it for 50.00, not sure if I paid too much or not. While this is not an original cart, it  might be the only way I will ever own the game due to its rarity.

Hey All pretty exhausted and sick so I won't have a list up on everything but here is what my brother got today when he went out of town with my parents yesterday and most of the day today.  I stayed home, did homework, and slept since I feel like poop.

@RetroRage: Big congrats on the house!

@Nick: Cool grab on that Sinclair. I've not seen that before.

I picked something up for Rich at the local store the other day, and while I was there I picked up a few well priced games myself. Unfortunately TMNT is missing the manual, but otherwise these are in great shape.

Hey, I got some more stuff!

(http://i59.tinypic.com/351yhli.jpg)

I got some more cheap cast offs from Amazon.  I'm not real proud of these, but I'll buy pretty much anything for $1.

(http://i59.tinypic.com/t88zfq.jpg)

These are things I got from various big box stores.  Dragon's Age was $9 and Mario Party was $25 both from Best Buy.  Skylanders was $5 from Five Below.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/11r3tbn.jpg)

I got this stuff from Gamestop and Disc Replay.  The NES games were free after I traded in some extra DVDs I had lying around.  The strategy guides were bought during that half off all guides thing that Gamestop did a few weeks ago.

(http://i58.tinypic.com/2wmgfoo.jpg)
(http://i59.tinypic.com/rbzmeh.jpg)

Finally garage sales paid off for me.  Everything here was $1-3.  There isn't a lot of must have titles here, but in the interest of complete collections, it's hard to beat games at that price.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/wks7iv.jpg)
(http://i60.tinypic.com/e5n23l.jpg)
(http://i59.tinypic.com/rjfuk4.jpg)
(http://i59.tinypic.com/2u5w8pt.jpg)

Finally all of the things I found at thrifts.  They were pretty good to me.  It's weird how you can go without finding any big box games for weeks, but then you find a ton at the same time.  I found all of those from three or four different thrifts in a 3 day period.  Other than that, the Viva Pinata Special Edition was a pretty nice score.  It's still sealed and since it's on Rare Replay, I can leave it like that.

Until next time!

I picked this up the other day from GameStop, and I have no idea why, considering the PSP Version sucked so bad. As for this one, the Gameplay isn't all bad, but it shoves so much story down your throat right at the start that you have a hard time following it. Interestingly enough, while being used, the FF 15 Demo Code still worked. Also, the case is in rough shape, but the game disc is flawless.

Found this in a charity shop today. It was being priced up as I went in. :slick:
I already had it, but for £3, I thought I may as well get it again. It's missing the Spanish, Italian and Dutch manual though.
(http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll222/mumboking/Photos/Games/DSC_0663.jpg)

I almost bought Metal Gear Solid for the PS1 too... but £2.50 with no manual and rather scuffed discs? No thanks.

Fantastic finds, Crabby!  Kind of jealous of that Tron Bonne CIB score!

Nice find on that PSP, Redd - love me some PSP!

Duke.Togo - jealous of that TMNT find.  I have the game itself, but the label is so bad.  Box and manual I'm sure are a premium most anywhere.

I own a PSP too. Mine has a non functional power switch. Whilst trying to fix it, I'm pretty sure I caused a stuck blue pixel. :'(
I don't think the propellant from a compressed air can spraying on the screen helped either.

Hey now,

A few Labor Day Goodwill pickups:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-7-2015a_zpsekgzk0mp.jpg)

- Glacier GBA with Donald Duck Goin' Quackers GBC cart and Golden Sun GBA cart, 28.97 $18.83

- CIB Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's TagForce 4 for PSP $3.99 $2.99

- Krazy Ivan longbox (no manual) for PS1, $5.99 $3.89

- CIB Gex: Enter the Gecko for PS1, $3.59 $2.33

- Hexen N64 cart, $3.99 $2.99


Aaaand for around $19.00 I picked up the following loose former-rental Sega Genesis/Mega Drive carts:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-7-2015b_zpsezbdhyiv.jpg)

- Sword of Vermilion

- Fatal Labyrinth

- Gauntlet IV

- Starflight

- Game Genie

- The Faery Tale Adventure

- Traysia


- Japanese Phantasy Star III

- Phantasy Star IV

- Kid Chameleon


Oddly enough, a gentleman had beaten me to these carts, but ultimately decided to pass on 'em... the fool. I almost felt sorry for the guy... almost.


Topping things off: a couple non-vidya grabs...

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-7-2015c_zps2qo4syg4.jpg)


- Nerf Zombie Strike FlipFury blaster, $3.49 $2.62: Aside from being loose, this bad boy's practically brandy new. Pretty good grab considering they sell new for a double-sawbuck.

- CIB Saitek Mephisto Advanced travel chess computer, $3.49 $2.27: nobody tell Norv about this one, 'cuz he's sure to sh*t a brick if he finds out. Or at least utter "zoinks!" in his best Casey Kasem impression.


Until next time...

@mumboking: That's Mega Drive CD looks awesome!

@Norch: Phantasy Star IV is really good. If you like that style of game give it a go before you sell it off.

I'm clearing out a bit of my for sale stuff to OTC Video Games, and those funds are what spurred me to go out and get a Bloodborne machine today.
(http://i1023.photobucket.com/albums/af356/jackcrow2000/D4A8CD84-DDF6-4C7F-8352-13082373E0B7_zpsvljlopj3.jpg) (http://s1023.photobucket.com/user/jackcrow2000/media/D4A8CD84-DDF6-4C7F-8352-13082373E0B7_zpsvljlopj3.jpg.html)

At least someone does. I can think of only one person besides myself who actually uses a PSP for PSP Games, as opposed to solely using emulators on it.

I do that as well, but something that a lot of PSP owners may not be aware of is an app called "ISO_TOOL".  When you have the UMD, you can use that to rip the game directly to your memory stick in either ISO or CSO (compressed) format.  Then you can save your UMD drive (since they tend to fail after a lot of use) and just play the games from the memory stick, which is faster anyway.  It was a powerful system ahead of its time, and with the additional functionality you get from loading up custom firmware, it's pretty much the best handheld system ever.

Nice pickups, Zag!  Gotta love seeing stuff like Crazy Ivan.  The early PlayStation long-box library was a big buffet of weird, wasn't it?

I reflected on this solemn date in the most stereotypically American way possible: by engaging in brazen, shameless consumerism.

Check out what I picked up for $20 at the newly-remodeled Palo Alto Goodwill's grand reopening:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-11-2015a_zpsykfdee2c.jpg?t=1441929143)

- CIB Brave Fencer Musashi, Bushido Blade 2, SaGa Frontier 2, and Front Mission 3 for PS1

- CIB Resident Evil 5 for 360


I grabbed these elsewhere:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-11-2015b_zpstsxt0lur.jpg?t=1441929147)

- Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness (no manual) for GameCube, $5.99

- CIB Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night for DS, $7.95

- CIB New Super Mario Bros. 2 for 3DS, $9.99

- CIB Marble Master for PS1, $2.49

- Dragon Warrior Monsters GBC cart, $1.99

- CIB Mega Man X8 for PS2, Mega Man Battle Network 5: Team Protoman GBA cart, and Countermeasure 5200 cart: got these for trade credit.


All right, back to you.

Hey all here is my brothers and mines scores for today - nothing to special. Except we finally found some CIB Sega Pico Games - now onto getting a full CIB set.  My favorite pick up today is probably the Arc Rise Fantasia I have never seen it before so I thought I'd grab it and of course took advantage of cheap Game Stop Games. Also can't wait to dive into Super Mario Maker - Without Amiibos - I don't think I will be opening that box of worms.  Yabia Ninja Gaiden is complete with the Comic Book & Soundtrack and DLC.

and of course - more PC games.

Oh my God, that's just horrible. HORRIBLE I tell you!

Your brother actually wasted perfectly good money on an American Dad DVD box set? They shoulda paid him to take it off their hands.

If you really care about him, you'll get him some professional help right the hell now, before he commits any more catastrophic financial blunders. Maybe you can find a counselor who uses Lego therapy?

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/dd2_zpsoengpmeg.jpg?t=1442088198)


Got this for just $2.49. Aside from some wear on the box, it's most likely never even been used. The dice and grease pencil are still bagged for goodness sakes. And it even has the '81 product catalog and RPGA membership form.

Man, I love Gamefly. I figured I'd luck out and get the LE version of Etrian Mystery Dungeon, thus I added Gat out of Hell because games from Gamefly come in a box if you buy more than one.

A little late but here is the new guy.  Cameron.

Hes a big dude but still pretty small compared to his brother.

(http://i.imgur.com/9aCUiLP.jpg)

Whelp, looks like you'll hafta sell off your collection to save yourself from economic destitution. Especially now that you're in the market for a mini-van. We're gonna miss ya, bud. But hey, it's not like I didn't warn ya.

Hey, speakin' of kids-- but, more on that in a moment. First off, lemme show you my latest Goodwill grabs:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-18-2015a_zpscidutxyk.jpg)

Left: Red GBA SP case with the following games for $12.99:

- Mario Party Advance
- Super Mario Advance (SMB2)
- Bionicle Heroes
- Shrek 2
- Power Rangers SPD
- Ultimate Spider-Man
- Barbie Horse Adventures: Blue Ribbon Race
- Barbie SuperPack: Secret Agent / Groovy Games
- Chicken Little
- The Incredibles
- Finding Nemo
- Over the Hedge: Hammy Goes Nuts!
- Wild Thornberrys Movie



Right:

- Case with lime green GBA SP and various accessories, $14.99
- Loose PSP-1000, $17.99

Aaand topping things off, a little something from the land of cheddar, courtesy of Norv, AKA Shaggy:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-14-2015b_zpsgz9xguk3.jpg?t=1442536008)
ZOINKS!

Man, I'm glad I didn't hafta buy this one. The last time I saw one at a local thrift, they were askin' ten bucks for it! So you know it's gotta be worth bank on teh interwebz!

Oh, and there was something else:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-14-2015c_zpszs0gwukh.jpg?t=1442536008)
Jinkies!

Oh sweet haysoose no, a ransom note! Oh, Norv, what didja get yourself into?!

ANYway, let's give the note a read before I contact the authorities:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%209-14-2015d_zpshaeedt3a.jpg?t=1442536004)

D'oh! I guess it's not a ransom note after all. Well, that's a relief... and kinduva letdown. Still, it has me entertaining the notion that maybe having kids isn't so bad after all.

Errr... hold on a moment...

*SMACK* OW!!!

Sorry, hadda slap some sense back into me, sorry 'bout that. And not a moment too soon-- I was just about to go comparison shopping for mini vans. And then I was gonna buy a set of those stupid stick-figure-family window decals. Seriously, don't get those. I know parents are supposed to be lame, but the whole stick-figure decal thing cranks the lameness to an intolerable level of lameosity... especially the ones with the pet stick-figs. For Eon's sakes, man, try to preserve what remains of your dignity...

Hey all - Here is my brother and mines grabs for the weekend..no shopping this week, and next month is tight lots of Pre-orders. and a small deal in the works.  Then hopefully might get a bigger deal in the works to help a certain "daddy" more money for his kiddos ;-)

Nothing to huge but some pretty awesome stuff.

Zag, you sure have a knack for finding GBA stuff, huh?

I'm not a "selfie" sort of guy (and I rather dislike that term), but I thought you all might appreciate the shirt I ordered a couple weeks ago that arrived earlier this week:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/3234B27C-E5C5-4A87-BE96-719FA2B70526.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/3234B27C-E5C5-4A87-BE96-719FA2B70526.jpg.html)

I happened upon a garage sale with a lone gaming related item I had to snag. It matches the one I bought as a new item years ago:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/9B6D9E01-D9E5-4DF6-87AB-05D451B6896F.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-09/9B6D9E01-D9E5-4DF6-87AB-05D451B6896F.jpg.html)

And thanks to a Best Buy gift card, I snagged this beauty for next to nothing!

The "care package" I have for you is already at capacity; You'll hafta wait 'till the next go-round. Fear not, however; I have quite a pile on hand, so it's not like they're going anywhere... except perhaps this year's Not-So-Secret Santa. Which, in case anybody cares, is scheduled to start on November 16th* to coincide with my fifth anniversary on RF Gen.

*Home burglaries notwithstanding.

Now that I've dispensed with the self-promotion, you'll be outright SHOCKED & AWED when you see what I picked up on Sunday:

If you've wondered where I've been the last couple days, you have your answer.

BTW the posters are TRU launch-day promos, and the comic was a bonus that came with my G*meSt*p pre-order.

@Zagnorch: The reviews have been pretty positive so far. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think.

You can read my initial thoughts in the Gaming Diary thread:

http://www.rfgeneration.com/forum/index.php?topic=14820.msg229198#msg229198

One big thing I did notice was that none of the Toys R Us's I went to on launch day had the Superchargers starters or figures on the big promo display just past the entrance like they've had in previous launches. There were, however, big banners on the front of each store promoting Lego Dimensions, which is coming out in the next five days. This is likely why this year's Skylanders launch came two weeks earlier than in previous years-- they needed to get a bit of a jump on the increasing competition in the toys-to-life vidya racket.

So, um... how're things with you?


Title: Re: The Small Scores Thread: Part 4!
Post by: Addicted on September 23, 2015, 06:57:57 AM
@Zag:

Thanks for the link. I'm taking a wait and see approach with Dimensions, and I already have Skylanders and Infinity... not sure I need a third toys-to-life thing.

I've been grabbing some more games from Goodwill and importing some more from Japan.

I've been working on trying to finish subsets.

I was happy to find Road Rash for .99

This puzzle game was first out in 1991 as a public domain game.
The developer updated the game for a 2014 release and recently released a limited edition boxed 2015 version.

The game is free to download and there are still some boxes left: http://www.hd-videofilm.com/laserball/

Hey look!  I bought some more stuff!

(http://i58.tinypic.com/29e2hau.jpg)

Amazon has been picking up a bit lately.  Most of the stuff here was from them for under $3.  Awakened Fate Ultimatum was $12 from Gamefly and Thief was $5 from the Microsoft store.  The Xbox 360 text pad was something stupid like $1.  I don't ever play online, but in the off chance I do, I'm all set.

(http://i60.tinypic.com/301lm9z.jpg)
(http://i60.tinypic.com/169ia1c.jpg)

I got all of these from various big box stores.  The top row, Ninja Gaiden and the Skylanders stuff were all from Best Buy and with GCU, coupons and the like, everything cost from $1-10 a piece.  The PSP games were all on clearance at Target and Drakengard and Tales of Graces f were $15 total from goHastings.

(http://i57.tinypic.com/ruw9qe.jpg)

This is all stuff from Disc Replay.  I really, really love Alan Wake.  I'd buy just about anything that has to do with the game.  The Suffering is getting thrown into my Halloween play pile right after Call of Cthulu.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/2nsqfdh.jpg)
(http://i57.tinypic.com/4sg12r.jpg)

You know, I've been striking out on garage sales all year, and now that they are ending for the year I start finding stuff.  Escape from Monkey Island has been high on my want list for a while now.  I got Game and Wario for $10 which is a bit more than I like to pay for games at garage sales, but Nintendo first party games for the Wii U seem like they'll hold their value so it's totally worth it.

(http://i57.tinypic.com/f9obba.jpg)

Welp, I guess I'm collecting Amiibos now. 

(http://i60.tinypic.com/14tlgnd.jpg)
(http://i62.tinypic.com/67m5q8.jpg)

Finally are my thrift pick ups.  There's a decent bit of cool stuff here, but I love the arcade game bank that I picked up.  It's just one of those quirky things that were so completely of their time.  It doesn't look like there are any markings on it so I'm going to have to do a bit more research on it.

That's it for now!

I missed the chance to preorder that.  Now I've got to wander around aimlessly and hope I find one somewhere.

@GrayGhost81: New Vegas is great game when patched. Have fun in the wasteland!

@Sauza12: Amazon lists them as in stock:

Pleasantly surprised at what I found in CEX.  I bought every SMS game they had (not many).
All of them have their manual (Choplifter's is a photocopy though) and some have a game catalog in them. :)

Last day for a video game store that is going out of business, 75% off used games.  Note how much I saved!

Why is that Gorilla Games closing up? NOt enough traffic? Good thing I decided not to find a way to franchise with them.

It's not a franchise (at least the one WI wasn't).  There is one in IL but it isn't affiliated.  Anyways, the owner's Mom died around March and than a month or two later her brother died.  She said because of that she is closing the store permanently so she can concentrate on going through the two houses and sell them. I get her point but on the other hand I would keep the shop open and have my minions run it for me for a few months.  I wonder if she got some money because of the deaths.

@Shaggy: Those are some great savings!

@mumboking: I love the SMS boxart. Action Fighter even shows you where the action is with a magnifying glass...

I received a couple more Famicom games. Thanks again Slowman!

I've been in a budget crunch lately, so I haven't any vidya scores to show off right now. However, I did find a little something-something:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/milrec1_zpsx5cmijkn.jpg?t=1443803930)


At first I thought it was a laserdisc, but then discovered it was a soundtrack LP:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/milrec7_zpsecoch7cy.jpg?t=1443803927)


It's from an anime series entitled Queen Millennia. It eventually hit the American shores combined with Space Pirate Captain Harlock; the resulting amalgamation was called Captain Harlock and the Queen of a Thousand Years. The American kitbash was produced by Harmony Gold, the same outfit that put out Robotech. I recall watching it on a second-tier independent channel back in the mid-80s. Due to the show's characters and ships looking just like those in Star Blazers/Space Battleship Yamato, I thought it was some sort of continuation/spinoff based in the same fictional universe. Nope, it just happened to be created by the same gentleman, Leiji Matsumoto.


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/milrec3_zpsuaojqume.jpg?t=1443803930)


From Star Blazers / Space Battleship Yamato to Interstella 5555, I'll always gravitate towards anything and everything featuring the designs of Leiji Matsumoto. Needless to say, this pick-up was a no-brainer for me.


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/milrec5_zps02dcb8ku.jpg?t=1443803930)


From the obi band to the bonus poster, this bad boy is surprisingly complete and in excellent condition. Not too shabby for $1.99, wouldn't you say?

Pretty sweet vinyl find, Zag!

So after 2 weeks of complete insanity, both personally and professionally, my wife and I decided to get away for a short weekend. We hit the "big city" today, and I spent some time game hunting. I think I did quite well! Here are my pickups from the 1st game store:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/D2909892-BC1D-4533-94C2-7E06032CF273.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/D2909892-BC1D-4533-94C2-7E06032CF273.jpg.html)

Here's the stuff I got from one Goodwill location:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/6FFE70E4-736C-428F-91B2-135395B7671B.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/6FFE70E4-736C-428F-91B2-135395B7671B.jpg.html)

Items from another game store:

This was from another game store:

And finally, my best score from the other Goodwill!

@Zagnorch: That looks like a great score and it seems to be an early 1980 release.
The previous owner must have been very good to his vinyl’s so I hope you have this protected!

This reminds me I forgot to show 2 game vinyl’s I got in a while back :)

Space Odyssey Gradius II & SUITE GRADIUS Fantasia 12” Vinyl
(http://s25.postimg.org/wwq66s6qn/Gradius2.jpg)
Spoiler (hover to show)
Both of these came out in Japan back in 1988 and are some of the oldest VGM I have.
A whole series of Gradius games have since come out that are very popular in Japan.

@Metalfro just making damn sure you have a working copy of MGS huh?

That's the plan! I bought the Greatest Hits version because that's what I have, but when I saw the original I figured why not? I've been buying both versions of other games when I find them :P

@TheBoss - can I just say that you suck? LOL. As a major shmup and vinyl fan, those are something I'd love to have in my collection.

I'll have more photos later of some stuff I picked up today, and a couple things I got in the mail this week.

Finally managed to grab a GameCube (I'm very late to the party), but for more than i intended to pay. Not a total bust thought because it had all cords and came with 5 games* and 3 memory cards and a Nintendo Power guide for Pokemon: XD Gale of Darkness.

*Games:
Pokemon: Colosseum
Pokemon: XD Gale of Darkness
The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (Player's Choice)
Super Mario Sunshine (Player's Choice)
Pokemon Channel (Game Only)

Paid $40 for all.

that's actually an amazing deal, around here i wouldn't be able to find Windwaker alone for less than $40, and gamecube systems tend to start around $25 now.

i was gonna say the same thing. i payed @35 for my ngc but it did come with super mario strikers so i was hyped. payed $20 for my loz windwaker

Shinobi III is also out on vinyl now and Super Hang-On is coming around December!

I already ordered my Shinobi III vinyl, and am on the fence about Super Hang-On.  I'll have to go back and play it, to see if the soundtrack is one I'll want to spin semi-frequently.

I got a package yesterday from Zag, a bunch of Game Boy and GBA stuff he's been collecting to ship to me.  Included was this ominous little parcel:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/2BCF90CB-F16C-42C3-8805-75BFDDFB7033.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/2BCF90CB-F16C-42C3-8805-75BFDDFB7033.jpg.html)

(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/1288109B-46DC-4A4A-A303-BFC9B0D156D2.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/1288109B-46DC-4A4A-A303-BFC9B0D156D2.jpg.html)

(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/2FAF5194-730A-4A04-83FD-2330D865675A.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/2FAF5194-730A-4A04-83FD-2330D865675A.jpg.html)

Needless to say, I was quite amused by the fact that he had gone to the trouble to do such a thing.  Kudos, Zag, for making me smile and giving your package that little extra something that made it fun to open!  Here's what was inside the whole thing:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/AFF0C7B1-8185-44A3-80A3-C3944AD613B7.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/AFF0C7B1-8185-44A3-80A3-C3944AD613B7.jpg.html)

Apparently, the 7 seals concealed a bootleg Metal Slug Advance cart, and an Ecks vs. Sever cart, which I suspect will either be surprisingly good, or horrifically bad.  I haven't read any reviews, so I'll go in totally blind on that one :)

I was lucky to bump into these but you made a great choice with the Streets of Rage vinyl ;)
Shinobi III is also out on vinyl now and Super Hang-On is coming around December!
I already ordered my Shinobi III vinyl, and am on the fence about Super Hang-On.  I'll have to go back and play it, to see if the soundtrack is one I'll want to spin semi-frequently.
Outrun will also be out on vinyl later but interestingly that game has like 4 music tracks so I assume we are in for some extras.
Maybe some awesome S.S.T. Band arranged versions 8)

Outrun Splash Wave (Arranged) S.S.T. Band

Here is another great arrangement by “Daddy Mulk” from 1990 of The Ninja Warriors

That would be cool, or if they included some Outrun 2 or 2006 stuff along with the originals, maybe some arranged versions or something like that.  Outrun is definitely a soundtrack I want to have.

How can a sealed Amiibo be pre-owned? None the less, I got this for 11 Dollars at GameStop today:

GameStop can't legitimately sell something as "New" that was traded in. They usually rip open anything New and mark it as "Pre-owned" if a customer trades it in, so I'm surprised you got it in the box.

Wait, so they can't sell a new, unopened item that was traded in as new but they can open up a game, let there employees play it, and than sell that as new?  I hate Gamestop.

Oh, great... a freakin' box. Big whoopty-doo-dah.  :P

ANYway, my latest pickups are ready for your viewing pleasure.

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2010-12-15a_zpsw9dw8ppl.jpg)

- Skylanders Superchargers Fiesta figure and HC collector's ed. guide: spent most of my Amazon rewards points on these. The guide even came with a comic:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2010-12-15c_zpse6ohegdw.jpg)

Sadly, it didn't include profiles of the Nintendo-console-exclusive DK & Bowser Amiibo hybrid figs.

- UK charging cable for GBA SP & heavy DS: the plug end of this thing has some heavy-duty prongs.

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2010-12-15b_zpsqb9p61jw.jpg)

Got it all for $6.  I basically wanted it for King's Quest, I love that series and didn't have the game on SMS.  I don't know if the gun works.  I noticed this morning that the wires were coming out of the bottom of it.

Congrats, singlebanana, on the two rare NES finds!  Awesome thrift find, shaggy! I'm a long time King's Quest fan, but have never played the SMS version, so I'm curious about how it plays. I picked up more cool stuff today, and will have pictures when I get home.

Edit: and here they are! Here is my meager take from the game store nearest me:

Three charity shops, and only two items...

First up, a fake Pokémon Silver (I knew it was fake before I bought it) - £2
Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to work. The Game Boy logo comes up with the Nintendo logo underneath, but then it just gives a blank screen and no sound. :(

My pick ups this week. Picking up the cheap Sega Genesis Black Box Grid games before moving on to the expensive ones.

One of my good friends bought the Mega Man Mini Helmet Collection for me, for really no reason at all, but just because he is a super nice guy.

It's been a few years since I've been down to Kansas City, but I know my wife wants to try and go to Worlds of Fun sometime in the not-too-distant future.  Probably next summer, assuming we still have our foster boy.  I'd love to meet up and go check out some of the game hunting hot spots :)

Hey all - had a huge package arrive at the door for something I pre-ordered the day it was announced months ago.  Sadly disappointed it's only Digital download - so I have the physical copy coming next week.  So this copy will be staying sealed.  The He-Man game I have been waiting on for a while since I got it from Europe it's the English version.  And the cars my brother got as a lot on eBay.

First up, this. Unfortunately it's a bit scratched. £4
(http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll222/mumboking/Photos/Games/DSC_0718.jpg)

This was in a charity shop and had just got back from electrical testing. Was going to be £25, but it's not all there so they dropped the price to £15.
My first PS1 box and manuals! The box and manuals are for a 5552, but the console inside is a 7502 (with a missing parallel port cover). No worries there, I have plenty of 5552s. :P

A friend of ours and Collectorcast has a great playthrough posted on YouTube. I'd suggest watching a few segments of it before you decide. She told me that she's also doing a review of it pretty soon.

Isn't this the horror game that is very disturbing?  Isn't this where the girl falls down a well and all these bugs crawl over her or something like that.  If it is, I've heard good things about it.

Rule of Rose has a very interesting backstory in the industry, including being banned and pullled off store shelves in the UK. It's one of the rarest UK PAL games as a result, as only review copies remain. Here's the story, as covered by Wikipedia:

Quote
At E3 2006 Atlus announced that it would be releasing Rule of Rose in the United States,[22] following Sony's decision to pass on an American release.[23] This was on the grounds of the game's erotic undertones involving a cast of female minors. The developers disagreed with this, saying that the sexual themes are only a small part of the game.[2]

In November 2006, three French deputies introduced a bill asking for the game to be banned for sale, arguing that the goal of the game was to "rape, beat up and kill a little girl", and that if nothing was done, video games could become an "uncontrollable factor of decadent violence in our society."[24] That same month, 505's Australian distributor, Red-Ant advised that the game's Australian and New Zealand release would be canceled.[25] The game had yet to be rated by the Classification Board.[26]

European Union justice minister Franco Frattini attacked the game as containing "obscene cruelty and brutality." He also called for changes to the PEGI rating system in place across Europe and for government officials to engage in discussions with industry representatives.[27] Frattini received a letter from Viviane Reding, commissioner for the information society and media, who criticized Frattini's actions: "It is...very unfortunate that my services were not pre-consulted before your letter to the Ministers of Interior was sent out," reminding him of the commission-backed self-regulating ratings system called PEGI that has operated across the European Union since 2003. The PEGI system of classification, according to Reding's letter, offers "informed adult choice" without censoring content: "This is in line with the Commission's view that measures taken to protect minors and human dignity must be carefully balanced with the fundamental right to freedom of expression as laid down in the Charter on Fundamental Rights of the European Union."[28] On March 7, 2007, a group of Member of the European Parliaments presented a Motion for a European Parliament resolution on a ban on the sale and distribution in Europe of the game and the creation of a 'European Observatory on childhood and minors'.[29]

The publisher has chosen to cancel the release of the game in the United Kingdom following complaints by Frattini and other EU officials, and "largely misleading"[30] commentary from the British press.[31] It was released in the rest of Europe. Review copies of the title had already shipped to British journalists when this was announced. The British body which had granted the title its 16+ PEGI rating (the Video Standards Council) responded to the press and Frattini's comments: "I have no idea where the suggestion of in-game sadomasochism has come from, nor children being buried underground. These are things that have been completely made up. [...] We’re not worried about our integrity being called into question, because Mr Frattini’s quotes are nonsense."[27]

Poland's Ministry of Education raised questions concerning its appropriateness for minors (the game was rated 16+) because of the themes of child violence and sexuality. The ministry informed the prosecutor's office of possible crime.[32]

Yeah, definitely some controversy behind Rule of Rose. Great pickup, that one.

I happen to be traveling for business today and tomorrow, and I have been in Omaha today, and will be again tomorrow. Here are my pickups from this afternoon and evening! Here's game store 1, part 1:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/66858770-8F1D-4007-AFB3-6FDE45E81F64.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/66858770-8F1D-4007-AFB3-6FDE45E81F64.jpg.html)

And game store 1, part 2:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/0BE509CD-DFFA-4EEB-8C55-CB0885BAABDE.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/0BE509CD-DFFA-4EEB-8C55-CB0885BAABDE.jpg.html)

Game store 2:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/7F977329-0FE0-48AA-82F6-9AB9A4672484.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/7F977329-0FE0-48AA-82F6-9AB9A4672484.jpg.html)

The Spyro manual makes that complete for me, so that was a nice find. The MMX6 &  Monkey Island manuals are FS/FT, if anyone is interested.

Here are a few things I picked up at Half Price Books:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/9E405C76-D1B6-4155-BAED-68D589DCA160.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/9E405C76-D1B6-4155-BAED-68D589DCA160.jpg.html)

And last (but not least), though not gaming related, the vinyl I picked up at Half Price Books, since I know some here also collect :)

http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-037-S-05260-A

It was only ever released as a Players Choice variant, like a handful of other releases.

I stopped by a couple pawn shops on the way home from my work trip, and picked up a few things. Pawn shop 1:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/3A366895-F10F-4E85-BEBB-B7E75BBD5D1E.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/3A366895-F10F-4E85-BEBB-B7E75BBD5D1E.jpg.html)

And pawn shop 2:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/607C50DD-0F00-477C-A3CA-8CE4C1B6814C.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-10/607C50DD-0F00-477C-A3CA-8CE4C1B6814C.jpg.html)

I spent a little more in shop 2 than I should have, but shop 1's prices sort of balance it out.

Hey, look at this stuff!

(http://i60.tinypic.com/261kbvp.jpg)
(http://i60.tinypic.com/2qsmmte.jpg)

This is my Amazon haul recently, before Warehouse Deals went back into it's deal hibernation.  Alone in the Dark was my favorite grab out of everything here.  It was something like $3.25 and was in immaculate condition.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/25ujhxi.jpg)
(http://i61.tinypic.com/bgdzpf.jpg)
(http://i60.tinypic.com/dp8u1i.jpg)
(http://i59.tinypic.com/21l1z7n.jpg)

This is my thrift stuff.  The box for the Power Pad is pretty beat up, but considering my old one met a terrible fate due to a partially flooded basement and mold, I couldn't be happier about this one.  Lego Batman 3 was only $5 and was like the fourth XBone game I've found at thrifts.  It seems a bit early in the systems life span to find games for it at thrifts, but I'm not gonna complain.

I did my quarterly Gamestop $1 Wii game sweep.  I got a bunch plus picked up a bunch of other cheap Wii games.  The first picture is everything I grabbed and the second one are highlights from the bunch.

(http://i59.tinypic.com/fjq749.jpg)
(http://i61.tinypic.com/dhg9ec.jpg)

The Last Story was pretty much free as I had a $25 rewards certificate for Gamestop. 

(http://i60.tinypic.com/16jpjd3.jpg)
(http://i58.tinypic.com/xlh5zn.jpg)

And this is other random stuff I picked up from Gamestop.  They had a 4 for $20 sale recently and I went a bit nuts.  Also the Amiibo train keeps on a rollin'

(http://i59.tinypic.com/302qmwg.jpg)

These are things I picked up from random places.  The NES games were from Craigslist for $20 total.  My daughter was already playing Disney Infinity when I took this picture, hence the empty box.

Finally, my family and I went to a community Oktoberfest that had a bunch of kids crafts and activities and in the same building they had local vendors and what not.  Among the vendors was a local Nintendo rep who was giving away a bunch of freebies and they were all AWESOME. 

(http://i59.tinypic.com/34p0ytw.jpg)

I felt like a little troll running away with all this stuff, but I couldn't help it.  You know you would have done the same thing.  And with that, I'm out.

They have hundreds of $1 games.  If you swing by 4 or 5, you can easily grab 5-10 at each store.  It's just handy to have the Gamestop website pulled up on your phone when you do go.  A fair bit of the time the Gamestop employees don't reprice the games on the floor, so while a game might actually be $1, the price tag on the case will say something different.

I know what's going to be a spooky play next year. Strange thing is that I've been looking into some more lesser known horror games and this one sounds amazing. I'm surprised that Crave of all companies brought it over. I've also been wanting to start an ASCII/Agetec set and its gone fairly well so far.

Think of Galerians as the bastard child of System Shock and Bioshock, but with MGS-inspired gameplay and environment.

It's not too bad. You have a good voice and your audio is clear. I'd say other than that dreaded vertically oriented video the only other piece of advice would be to get more excited! If your pickups are crappy $.99 Wii games, crack some jokes about why you wasted your money on them or something.

Looks like this on my screen, if you can make out that all the black space is my monitor. I used to say something to my wife every time she took pictures or video this way. After a while I realized there is, possibly, a reason to do this if your target audience is going to be looking at it on a phone....well, actually I still say something about it every time   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Other than that, it seemed pretty good to me, I kinda want to go find some 99 cent Wii games.....

Second attempt at one of these. Slightly improved. As stated in the video I'm trying to bulk up my NES collection substantially. The official number I'm sitting at is 35 NES games (my rfgeneration collection page is up to date). Let me know if you're looking to trade / sell of some doubles. :)

Nice work on getting there, that's about halfway to having all the Sega genesis games, right? I love the Accolade boxes they made for Sega Genesis. I wish all the Sega Genesis Cardboard boxes would have gone that route.

Thanks! Yeah I think I'm getting close to half way. And definitely, I really like these accolade boxes and have been specifically trying to get them all recently, I think I'm only missing Summer Challenge and Double Dragon (and variants).

Couple good pickups at Conngo this past weekend.  Russlyman put aside the Mario Lemieux puck for me and there were another couple of hockey games I didn't own including my first Japanese PS2 hockey game.

Finally here.  Had a box of stuff to trade at Conngo and I traded some of it for the Wii U Zelda system and Mario 3d World.  Once I'm done with that I'll probably play through Wind Waker HD.  Currently can't find my copy of Skyward Sword :(

Hey now,

Finally mined a decent vein of gamin' treasure after a relative dry spell:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-3-2015a_zpsthtgnril.jpg?t=1446616102)

- Sealed Skylanders Swap Force Fire Bone Hot Dog figure: After two years of fruitless searching, I happened upon this by chance at the local Toys R Us while shopping for a New 3DS XL. Speaking of which:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-3-2015b_zps6bapxhwq.jpg)

- I decided to pick one up at G*meSt*p instead, specifically the exclusive Hyrule Edition. Bought it mostly with funds from selling the other 3DSes in my collection, along with some severance pay from my soon-to-be former employers.

My next pickup reminded me of ixtaileddemonfox, wherever he has gone:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-3-2015c_zps940itvzs.jpg?t=1446616102)

This would have gone great with those Mary-Kate and Ashley games he loved so much.

Rounding out the haul:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-4-2015a_zpsas3qmgal.jpg?t=1446616102)

- Sealed Interact PulsePak for Game Boy Pocket, $2.49: a sort-of rumble pack for your GBP.

- PS2 slim console, $5.99 $4.79: Figured I could use a backup in case my current one fails.

- Aaaand finally, a game of the non-vidya kind, the rather unimaginatively-named Torpedo Game:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-4-2015b_zpspnyrfonk.jpg?t=1446616102)

Yet another Epoch brand game added to my collection, and it's reminiscent of my fave board game, Battleship(s). Well, actually it's more reminiscent of Torpedo Run!, which I also really dug.

All right, back to you.

I'm actually wanting to import a Japanese one to go with my NA one. It's in the Famicom ROB colors.

Hey, guys!  Real life has been keeping me away, but I have some scores I just gotta share.  Maybe I'll start doing videos, too...

Anyway, on with the scores!

(http://i.imgur.com/qipio7nl.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/ZlE7lV5l.jpg)

Bucky O'Hare
G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero
G.I. JOE: The Atlantis Factor

Stanley: The Search for Dr. Livingston
Tiny Toon Adventures: Cartoon Workshop (Sealed)
American Gladiators
Natsume Championship Wrestling
FuncoLand sleeve
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
Pac-Mania
Battletoads & Double Dragon

A nearly unbelievable lot of 200 NES games walked into my LGS last week, and I walked in just after they did.  Bucky was the best of the lot.  The top label has peeled slightly, but has not torn.  Glad to have some heavy hitters off the wishlist.  The shop owner's my friend, so I got these for about 75-80% of ebay prices.  We negotiated a lot price, but I remember Bucky was $80 of the total.  I was able to pay it off with store credit from some flips, so I broke my rule about not paying more than $50 for a single cart.

The weekend after that, I went to the flea market...

(http://i.imgur.com/U22uTfXl.jpg?1)

(http://i.imgur.com/M0LH7Ufl.jpg?1)

Starflight (CIB) $10
Zillion (SMS, cart only, forgot to get a pic of it!) $5
Crackdown (CIB) $2
Mirror's Edge (CIB) $2

Blade Eagle 3-D (CIB) $5
MediEvil II (disc, case, and backing art) $10
MediEvil II (Manual, picked up on ebay after the fleas market) $10

Maze Hunter 3-D (CIB) $5
Quickshot VII $1

This was one of my most fruitful flea market trips where I was buying for my collection rather than to flip.  Starflight and MediEvil II mean the most to me, but there's really not a bad deal in the lot.  Psyched to go again this weekend.

Cheers.

Yeah, I'm definitely grateful for the finds, believe me.  I forgot to mention that the guy who traded in the huge NES lot to my local shop said that he was a collector selling off his collection to buy a car.  That probably explains the high quality of my pick-ups.  I wonder if he sold off anything online or on forums before he came into the shop...

I thought Bucky O'Hare was beyond my reach.  I had been considering buying the Famicom cart just to have it.  This is the true joy of having a local retro game shop.  You never know what will walk in and what deals you can get.

I've neglected to post my scores in here this summer. I'm going to try to be good about it moving forward. I will say that I had 3 pretty big scores this summer.

The first was a mega RPG lot (~25 games) at a yard sale. I pretty much gave the guy everything I had in my pocket (just under $80). I've actually traded a lot of it away for more than I paid. Some highlights were: Wild Arms 5 on PS2, Mana Khemia and Guide on PS2, Shin Megami Tensei Persona on PSP, Sands of destruction on DS. Eternal Sonata on XBox 360. All of the unnamed games were still pretty desirable titles (a pretty even mix of PS2, PSP and DS.

The second was a stack of very desirable, if not rare N64 games, at a flea market. There was no junk and I paid just over $20 for Mario 64, Bomberman 64, Diddy Kong Racing, Goldeneye, Donkey Kong 64 and Starcraft 64.

The third was at the same flea market. There's an old guy who usually has crazy prices (i.e., Super Mario Bros 3 for $35). He had a bunch of games in zilocks and I found a gem with a relatively tiny price tag -- Dragon Fighter ($20)

Onto some recent pickups.

Two weeks ago, I found a bunch of high end titles that were just out of my range, so I decided to dip my toe in the long box 3DO pool (and picked up a PS2 game on top of that)

(http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p717/jansolee66/2015-11-05%2001.56.01_zpskh9gx4yp.jpg) (http://s1347.photobucket.com/user/jansolee66/media/2015-11-05%2001.56.01_zpskh9gx4yp.jpg.html)

This week, I wanted some horror themed stuff in light of halloween. Selection was limited but I got the following

The top edge of the game board reads, "By every words and sentences from the Lord - play with you together - enjoy to have fun - full of blessing - achieve in your life." If anybody knows which Bible book, chapter and verse(s) that's from, please let me know.

Now you know the REAL reason why Jesus threw all those moneychangers out of the temple: He wanted all the business for Himself!

Topping things off are seven decks of cards. Perhaps they symbolize the Seven Seals? In any case, if I ever do try to play this, I know which deck I'm gonna use:

Thanks for the tip.  I'll give it a whirl.

@Norch: Nice haul there, especially the Saturn guns and Super Princess Peach. That board game though... wow.

Definitely a top small-score of the year if there ever was one.

Wow, I didn't know Norv suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. I sure hope it helps him out...

Made it to a thrift store the other day, got some stuff and realized I hadn't put up anything from PRGE either.....

Thrift store stuffs:

(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5822/22511916489_31c3d24509_o.jpg)

Some PC games, a couple of which I may already own, and the Directors Cut of THX 1138 on DVD. Somehow I've never made it through that whole movie but always wanted to, now I can.






PRGE 2015 stuff:

I have more pictures of what went on at the show, maybe I'll get those up sometime too.



(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5775/22878086646_796a2667d2_o.jpg)

Wife has wanted a Kinect for a long time. This one is one of the first things I bought at the show. It is nearly complete and was all of $10. The guy selling it told me they had gotten theirs because his wife wanted one too. He acted like he wasn't expecting to be able to sell this one  ;)    I put it in my backpack right away so no one would see me walking around the show floor with it.






(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/575/22716068290_9ff83ebab4_o.jpg)

Getting non-game finds out of the way.....Laser Discs, didn't find too many at the show we were interested in. I don't buy every LD I see but when I do it's either a different version or something you can't get otherwise, or the novelty of it being in that format is worth it. Wife got the stack of comic books, who knows whats in there?






(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/687/22485751958_ee6961ea9a_o.jpg)

Got the Kinect so we had to buy nearly every game for it we saw. Fable was the only one that cost dollars rather than cents. Padded out the Halo collection and bought a SMS game, 'cause they're awesome.






(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/655/22890631392_ef6c72a937_o.jpg)

The Wondersawn was the very first thing I touched at the show. Walked around the rest of the time looking for games only to be told by sellers I was the 3rd guy that day asking for Wonderswan games  ::)     They don't sell for much on ebay but of course much of the library requires you know Japanese to play it. Airwolf LCD is a gift for a friend who is an Airwolf fan, so much so his phones ringtone is the theme song. Monster Hunter is also a gift for a nephew, paid as much for that as anything at the show  :-\    Wife picked out the other DS games and has been playing them with the little 5 year old girl who spends a lot of time here.






(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/620/22485702457_893c8314ac_o.jpg)

I now have over half the Intellivison library! Yay! Some of these cost real money too, I think one of them I paid more than $10 for. I'm finding that the games, for the most part, aren't really that expensive but some aren't super common. About a 1/3 of the library (total INTV library is 120 games) I see all the time and people essentially try to give them away at these shows, the other 2/3rds don't show up much, even if some of them only sell for $2 CIB.







(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/777/22915197101_69f14cdde2_o.jpg)

In the end I didn't buy tons of stuff like I have in the past. My wife and I had a great time though and spent much of it walking around with Russlyman, which was awesome! There is tons to do at that show, we sat in on a panel were Al Alcorn talked. We watched the final 8 of the Tetris World Championships live. My wife went to the Howard Scott Warshaw panel and had Bob Smith (of Atari and Imagic fame) sit right next to her, they talked a little bit. We got to see Retrorage and Mrs Retrorage for about two minutes before they went and hid in the huge arcade for the rest of the day. Jerks!   :P   

I played an alpha version of a game called XO - Escape to Rigel Alpha IV http://jmpdrv.com/ which is a vector-based space RTS game. Seemed fun, looks awesome. Got to talk to a dev for a little bit. The game is Greeenlit for Steam. They gave me a sticker.

Wife played another alpha for Harmonia Tactics https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=312332300 which is also Greenlit on Steam. She played it for nearly half an hour while I talked to the dev. If you think of Final Fantasy Tactics but in real time with a pixel aesthetic it's like that. I talked to the dev guy for the whole time about all sorts of stuff, he seemed like a pretty good guy. Wife liked the game too. She got a sticker for that game too.

@nupoile, Love the stuff, man. Y'know my wife has wanted a Kinect for awhile as well. Love the He-Man and Buzz Bomber box art. The game store where I shop, has INTV stuff for sale for really cheap as well. They also give barely anything for trade as well.  Even HTF games. I guess the INTV market is in the toilet. Not a whole lot of demand anymore, I guess.  Great for us!   Sorry I missed out this year, will make it down for the swap meet though :)

Taiwanese Board Game Jesus isn't just awesome, He's ALL T3H AW3S0M3Z0RZ.

ANYway! As promised, here are the results of today's thrift crawl:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-9-15a_zpsnisgnfzm.jpg)

- Sealed Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn and Namco Museum Remix for Wii, $3.99 each

- Sealed Chibi-Robo! for GameCube, $12.99: Normally I'm too cheap to pay this much for ANY pre-7th-gen game at a thrift, sealed or otherwise. But seeing as how an open CIB one can go for three times that amount or more online, I figure I got a pretty sweet deal.

- Parker Brothers Merlin handheld game, $1.49

- CIB 7 Wonders II and Jewel Quest Mysteries for DS, $3.99 each

- CIB Kirby Super Star Ultra for DS, $2.99 (not pictured)


And now a little something that's sure to grab the attention of the Crustacean King of the Great White North:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-9-15c_zps1uduzj99.jpg)

- Archie Mega Man comics TPBs, vols. 1 & 2, $0.49 each: Collects the first 8 issues.

- PC Gamer back ish, $0.49


Aaaand finally, a little tribute to Norv and the Nupes:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-9-15b_zpsjoxmpf6p.jpg)

- Saitek Mephisto chess trainer computer, $2.99

- CIB CI Graphic Arts master calculator, $4.49


And there you have it... FOR NOW.

Next, please.

UPDATE: Holy crap, Nupes, there's an Airwolf handheld game?! Well that's just swell, yet another thing to add to my wish list... sigh.

So, this past weekend has been really good to me.

As noted before, the GBA SP and three games cost $3.
That XBox cost me $5.
Also picked up Sly 3 and Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection. Pinball HoF only cost me $1.50.
Also picked up Star Wars: The Phantom Menace for PS1 for a measly $0.50.
G-Loc and SMB Deluxe also both cost $0.50 apiece.
The Atari games were cheap, too. I'm getting closer to my goal of acquiring all Atari releases for the 2600! :D

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2011-10-15_zpszijxlcak.jpg?t=1447135628)

- Pokemon Snap
- Iggy's Reckin' Balls
- Mario Kart 64
- Super Mario 64
- StarFox 64
- Gauntlet Legends
- Yoshi's Story


This was a rather bittersweet pickup, for it could be one of the last I'll ever encounter at any of the local Goodwills. I was told by the clerk who rung me up that the Goodwill of Silicon Valley chain might soon be selling their donated video game hardware and software exclusively online.  :(

Nice N64 scores, even if a little weather beaten.  My local Goodwill (there's only one near me) started selling video game items exclusively online over a year ago, so I know your pain.  The only gaming item I've seen there since is a PSX AV cable.

- Game Boy with Super Mario World 2 cart, $9.99 $6.99

- CIB copy of Okami, $3.99: purchased from a rebellious Goodwill.

- Music & Gaming sign: this is a little memento from my soon-to-be-former workplace, taken off of the store's gift-card rack. Which reminds me: I gotta hit the hay so I'm well-rested for my last day of work there tomorrow morning.

This was my birthday week and since I'm such a huge fan of me, I decided to go a little crazy this weekend:

I first acquired this lot from a guy on Kijiji (like Craig's list). I paid $40 CDN, which is not a steal, but Outbreak alone goes for more than that at our local stores and I needed a case upgrade for FF10:

(http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p717/jansolee66/2015-11-15%2021.05.48_zpse65llma0.jpg) (http://s1347.photobucket.com/user/jansolee66/media/2015-11-15%2021.05.48_zpse65llma0.jpg.html)

These were all $5-$7 at a music store that has only, over the past few years, really gotten into video games. They have surprisingly nice inventory. I apologize for the horrible photograph:

(http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p717/jansolee66/2015-11-15%2021.06.32_zpsc9st0ot3.jpg) (http://s1347.photobucket.com/user/jansolee66/media/2015-11-15%2021.06.32_zpsc9st0ot3.jpg.html)

As I was about to pay for those games, I noticed Double Dash for $30, which is at least $20 less than most of our retail stores. We then went to the new location of one of our regular game stores. I hadn't seen new inventory at the other location for a long time, but I was very happy to find Bushido Blade, which I've never seen in the wild, anywhere. We ended the day at our most frequent game store, where I knew I'd be pulling the trigger on a big ticket item. That ended up being Turtles in Time. I did not get much of a deal on it, but I didn't care.

Post by: singlebanana on November 16, 2015, 08:39:22 AM
Bushido Blade is a game that my brother and I got for Christmas one year. It's a fighting game where you don't have a life bar, but instead "real" fight with weapons until you score a critical hit. This can be quick or take a while. When you hit you're opponent's arm or leg, they lose the use of that limb. The controls are pretty bad, but man, we had a blast playing that game! It's awesome when you take out an opponent's legs and they still manage to find a way to skewer you. :)

Gran Turismo 3 is a game I'd like to own.
It's very cheap to buy. I can easily get it here for £1.

Been awhile since I posted on here. Had a hard time pulling myself away from Fallout 4 to make this post, but here are the most recent scores:

I preordered the pipboy from Amazon, but knew it wouldn't arrive right away. Bought a regular copy on launch, then got the pipboy on Friday.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/82553AF9-2F42-4982-9FE6-44BA16FD4548_zpstkhievnz.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/82553AF9-2F42-4982-9FE6-44BA16FD4548_zpstkhievnz.jpg.html)

All other retro games in my pics, were acquired from Game Quest. A local guy, who Crabby and I both know very well, decided he wanted to sell off the majority of his NES, Genesis, and SNES. Its been killing my wallet, but I can't pass up the opportunity to get a bunch of stuff I wanted, all at once AND locally.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/2C010576-2BE0-417A-8133-BEDE3E11CABC_zpswvdeue4r.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/2C010576-2BE0-417A-8133-BEDE3E11CABC_zpswvdeue4r.jpg.html)

Run Saber is really fun to play.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/5BB71FAB-DB89-4587-8873-914504A0B1E1_zpsnrs8xrho.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/5BB71FAB-DB89-4587-8873-914504A0B1E1_zpsnrs8xrho.jpg.html)

The top 3 were condition upgrades. Mickey Mouse- got manual, and a nicer box to complete my copy. Castlevania II- got box and manual to complete mine. Megamania- bought it CIB to have a CIB copy. Great 2600 shooter.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/103CD246-82A6-488C-A762-30819EF2E9CA_zpsspk7wtzs.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/103CD246-82A6-488C-A762-30819EF2E9CA_zpsspk7wtzs.jpg.html)

Guardian Legend was a box and manual purchase to make my copy CIB. NES games from GQ, PS4 games from Walmart. YAY! Finally get a physical Shovel Knight AND that dang BttF game, which is almost as impossible to find, as that telltale games Jurassic Park.

And last but not least:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/D5B88EE0-F662-425E-ADBC-C86A4F2438CB_zpspa26slaz.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/D5B88EE0-F662-425E-ADBC-C86A4F2438CB_zpspa26slaz.jpg.html)

The Amiibo stuff and cool Disney Infinity Vader(haters gotta hate) were from walmart. Opened up that cool pipe Amiibo stand right away, and put my Mario Party Luigi Amiibo on top. The He-man book is a collection of EVERY minicomic, ever packaged in the vintage, North American, MOTU action figure line.

For some reason I was rather disappointed that there was no profile for Maximo, the spiritual descendant of Ghosts 'n' Goblins' Sir Arthur. I was hoping he would have at least been mentioned in Sir Arthur's profile, but no luck.

Oh boy, lemme tell you did I get some stuff.

(http://i67.tinypic.com/2ivwu8.jpg)

This is random stuff I picked up from random stores.  Code Name STEAM was $15 and everything else was less.  I don't remember how much, just less.

(http://i68.tinypic.com/124k7za.jpg)

This is stuff I bought from Amazon.  Once again everything was $1-3 except for Blade Dancer and Sonic.  Those were $5 and 6 bucks respectively.

(http://i63.tinypic.com/2rpxmra.jpg)

This is stuff I picked up from Gamestop.  The 360 games were part of their 4 for $20 sale they had a while back.  The Wii games were all $1 a piece.  Sadly this is just about the last of the $1 Wii games as for some reason Gamestop has increased the price of all of them to $3 or higher.  There went from 100+ games at $1 to 3.  Sad days.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/4vs4sg.jpg)
(http://i67.tinypic.com/246umpv.jpg)
(http://i67.tinypic.com/2gwb714.jpg)
(http://i67.tinypic.com/j0it8k.jpg)

This is all stuff I found at random thrifts.  The first picture is stuff I got in a bundle for like $5.  I couldn't see most of the stuff and it turns out I had most of it.  Oh well.  The Gamepros were $1 a piece at this thrift I found on a trip to one of our offices.  I've never been there before, but I really want to head back there if I can wrangle another trip out that way.  That Video Action Pong game in the last picture is an enigma.  I can't find anything out about it other than one site which gives zero information on it.  If anyone knows anything about it, drop me a PM.

Finally my two biggest scores:

(http://i64.tinypic.com/11rpzs9.jpg)

I grabbed these from Craigslist.  Right around 75 PC games for $60.  It included Penumbra:  Black Plague which has been super high on my wishlist for a while.  I had to build a whole new shelf in the game room just to accomidate all of these.

(http://i63.tinypic.com/2v2h8ao.jpg)

And this is the big one.  A complete in box Telstar Arcade which is another thing that has been super high on my wishlist for 10+ years.  I saw this at a thrift and it was higher than what I normally like to spend on game stuff, for $50 I couldn't pass it up.

That's it for this time.  I have more pictures in the upload queue, but I'll post those later.

http://www.pong-picture-page.de/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1485

It looks like it's a Video Action 1000.  From what I have been able to find, URL made three other pong units, the Video Action, Video Action 3 and Indy 500 (Video Action 4) which are all pretty rare, but no mention of this unit.  This is the only other mention of the system I found online:  http://www.thepcmuseum.net/games_details.php?RECORD_KEY%28games%29=id&id(games)=351 and it tells me little more than what I already know. 

I'm probably going to have to jump into this head first and start emailing people that are much more knowledgeable than me to figure it out.  Sounds like it could be fun :)

Well, might as well post these now.  I normally don't like to post pictures this close together, but I know I'll forget about it if I don't do it now.  So lets get too it.

(http://i65.tinypic.com/2e53xjc.jpg)

This is all I've been able to find at thrifts.  This usually seems to be a dry time for thrifts, so I'm not too surprised.  The Sims games were 50 cents a piece and the other games were $1 a piece.

(http://i63.tinypic.com/2ywim28.jpg)

These are the games I grabbed from Disc Replay.  I'm getting to the point now were I'm going to have to pay decent coin for any NES games I pick up.  There are very few $5 and under games left that I don't have.  Maybe thrifts and garage sales will be good to me (Hint:  They won't).  I've been keeping my eye out for Dragon's Lair 3D for a while now, so that was a nice find for me.

(http://i63.tinypic.com/2vll6a0.jpg)

Here's the internet things I grabbed.  Amazon has been picking up lately, so this is probably the least I'll grab online for the next month or so.  The Fantasia games were Best Buy's deal of the day a week or two ago and the were both less than $5 after GCU.  Deadfall Adventures collector's edition was a little under $10 from Amazon.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/vji4k.jpg)

These were fun.  Best Buy had another deal of the day a little while back where all Disney Infinity figures were $8 off, so 5 something with GCU.  There was a glitch were if you ordered two and only two at a time it would take an additional $5 off the pair, bringing them down to $2.79 a piece plus free shipping.  This is most of them, but I still have two on the way that were back ordered.  My daughter had a blast opening up all of the packages that came.

(http://i64.tinypic.com/1zlxeev.jpg)

I've done a lot of shopping at Gamestop lately.  They had a 4 for $10 sale and I, predictably, went nuts.  These were all $2.24 after the Gamestop save-y save cards.  What's weird about this sale was normally when they do these kinds of sales the games are all regularly $5-10 a piece.  In this sale there were a ton that were regularly $15 or higher.  I hope this is a trend that continues. 

And that's it.  Until next time!

Paid $45 for these 12 NES Games. I think I'm spoiled from garage sales because I cringed a little at paying this much. Contra alone goes for $30 though so I can't complain I suppose.

I too, purchased myself another game related vinyl, and maybe the first ever Hot Topic purchase:

What I find oddly strange, and somewhat disappointing, is the fact they call this record Mega Man Greatest Hits 1-10 but then they leave out a game. And it's a glaring omission IMO:

Spoiler (hover to show)

Last but not least, I thought I might actually have to fight like the kids in it, for the rights to purchase this game. Seriously. There was another frequent guy to Game Quest, that literally glared at me for a good 10-15 seconds, upon hearing I was getting this:

I slightly more restrained weekend of spending for me. I started it with a little bit of thrifting. The Buffy game was $3. Sealed Dragon Age Origins (XBox 360) was $5 and sealed "The Vampire Diaries" (don't judge me, the show is way better than people want to give it credit for) board game was similarly priced:

Went to my usual game store. While there, an Intellivision came in for trade. I spotted a voice modulator with it. I offered a less than retail, but fair price for it ($20 CDN). Then, I started talking myself out of it. The guy tossed in a free $1 game, CoD 2 and I caved. I was coerced by Krunch to buy Resident Evil 4 on the GameCube for $20. The only purchase I didn't need convincing on was Light Crusader (Genesis):

I just played some INTV games with a friend like a week ago. Think we played nearly all of the voice games for at least a little bit....."Beee sehvhenteeeen buhommer!" haha

Picked up a NES (with all hookups), 2 Controllers, a Zapper (with manual), Mario/Duck Hunt (with manual), and a CIB copy of Bases Loaded II for $20. Nothing extraordinary but the NES works great (which is nice for a change). These Facebook ads I've been putting out on the Buy/Sell/Trade groups are really starting to pay out.

I too, purchased myself another game related vinyl, and maybe the first ever Hot Topic purchase:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/E62BEF2E-8F4F-4C6C-A9FD-6795DE15C2C8_zpsyl1wij0k.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/E62BEF2E-8F4F-4C6C-A9FD-6795DE15C2C8_zpsyl1wij0k.jpg.html)

What I find oddly strange, and somewhat disappointing, is the fact they call this record Mega Man Greatest Hits 1-10 but then they leave out a game. And it's a glaring omission IMO:

Spoiler (hover to show)

I, too, was EXTREMELY disappointed with the omission of tracks from Mega Man 3.  I mean, the intro music isn't QUITE as iconic as that of MM2, but it's still awesome.  Not to mention Snake Man, Gemini Man, or Shadow Man.  The whole game has an excellent soundtrack, and it's a shame that it was not included here.  Really, I think it should have been a 2xLP release, so each game could have got its due with a solid 4-5 representative tracks from each.  That would have been a much better product.  Still, what they chose was mostly good, so I can't complain too much.

I agree MetalFRO. I listened to all of Side A, then out of annoyance, I popped in my MM3 cart so I could just listen to the intro.

Okay, finally have my pictures uploaded.  I forgot to post my Goodwill scores from a couple weeks ago:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/CC58E369-B8F3-4F32-BDB9-8BC96EDC9694.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/CC58E369-B8F3-4F32-BDB9-8BC96EDC9694.jpg.html)

Was particularly excited to find the GH2 nearly complete (only missing the strap) for that price.

Here's my modest Goodwill find from this past weekend:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/6AFDBFFD-7440-481D-8440-B32C77277E39.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/6AFDBFFD-7440-481D-8440-B32C77277E39.jpg.html)

Here's my take from one pawn shop:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/B2B79165-E244-4A73-B305-D56FE3803108.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/B2B79165-E244-4A73-B305-D56FE3803108.jpg.html)

And here's my INCREDIBLE pawn shop find at the other place:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/0B49ECFF-5A3F-4EAA-8402-D393DD62037B.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/0B49ECFF-5A3F-4EAA-8402-D393DD62037B.jpg.html)

So, a little story with this - if you look at the price tags, you'll see what the previous owner paid.  These are RECENT price tags, because that game store has only been in the town for about 6 months or so.  I've become a regular there, but of course, haven't wanted to shell out the money for most of those games because they hold their value so well, as I'm sure most of you know.  But someone purchased those games from that shop, at some point in the last few months, then they were pawned at the shop I go to regularly.  Not sure why they didn't take them back to the game store, but their loss is my gain!  I got them for pennies compared to those price tags.  All the years I've held off buying Super Mario Sunshine finally paid off, and now I can finally say I own both Smash (sans manual, unfortunately), and Double Dash!  So now, I officially own all console versions of Mario Kart, which is kind of nice.  In any event, patience does get rewarded from time to time!

And speaking of that game store, I stopped in there as well, and picked up a few things:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/706DE5C6-5020-4F4A-B7AA-1FC4F283454B.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/706DE5C6-5020-4F4A-B7AA-1FC4F283454B.jpg.html)

I know those Turbo Touch controllers are supposed to suck big time, but I decided to snag one for the fun of it.  That's a 5-pack of NES cart sleeves on the bottom, and of course, Saturn games are always great to pick up.  When I stopped in there, a guy who came in before me had literally just traded in some 30-40 Saturn games.  I told the clerk I had to walk out with one or two, so he told me to pick out a handful of games I wanted, and he'd call me later with pricing info.  As expected, most of the games were priced out of my range ($70 for Earthworm Jim 2, $120 for Enemy Zero, $65 for D, $35 for Scud, etc.), but I picked these 2 up.  I ALMOST picked up Cyberia, which would have been great, since I owned that one years ago and sold it off, but I wasn't going to pay $15 for a CIB game with a giant green rental sticker on the manual.  In any event, it was pretty cool to see all those Saturn games, a couple of which I'd never heard of, and 2 or 3 which I hadn't seen in the wild in 15+ years.

I used the automated code that you could use once per day.  On the third day at 12:04 am I received the winner message.  I thought I had won a taco, but ended up winning the PS4 bundle.  No pain and discomfort winning this PS4 after eating Taco Bell for me.  I love the movie Stand By Me and I have two other posters in the living room: Across The Universe and Dirty Dancing.

That's pretty great, some of those things are really cool. Played with one a little at a retro game event a couple years ago, not that one, but something similar.







Found a few things today, for all of $8 total:

The PS2 demo disc is sealed.




(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5798/23288578306_d24805dd28_o.jpg)

A few years ago I got to play with one of these, a newer version maybe. They're pretty fun, but it's very similar to actually flying a RC plane. The controller is really close to the real life thing. If you wanted to get into RC planes, getting one of these is the way to go for practice. Don't want to smash up you multi-hundred $ RC plane first time out. Get this and learn at home.

Someone found, and posted, one of these a while ago, was it Zagnorch  ???




(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5742/23232110911_32e3758560_o.jpg)

On 2-13-2002 it was $130. This one seems complete and in great condition. Pretty happy about it.

I have a PC or two that this would work on, but they are put away and a pain to dig out. There are gameport-to-USB converters but I don't know if they will work with this. Might have to get one anyways as it's been high on my list of things 'to get' for some time now. It would make some of those old joysticks I see in the thrifts more appealing if nothing else.




There were some more games I bought yesterday but they went directly into the hands of my nephew: Raymon Raving Rabbids 2, Pokemon Dash, Mario Party, Prince of Persia. All for the DS and 3DS. Paid whatever the game store wanted for them so nothing of note there. He also had me get some sort of Pokemon Trading card pack, kids these days.....

After that we went to an arcade, but got there before it opened. So we went down the block to another place that sold games. The store had half a dozen arcade machines, games from current day all the way back to Atari, INTV and Vic20(?!), stations set up for people to play games on consoles and lan's as well as about 30 taps for beer, because it is Oregon after all and if you're ever more than a few minutes from elitist coffee or craft beer.....you're in another state. But the arcade opened up and we went in. First thing I did was have him walk up to a coin changer and as he stood in front of it, I stuck in a 20, as he stood there mesmerized I told him to fill his pockets. We had a great time. Grandpa was with us and sat at a table with a Guinness, because the arcade a block from the game store with beer, also sold beer. It's Oregon. Making sure to play some classics like Street Fighter, Mario Bros and Rampage as well as some pinball with the kid, I let him be drawn to what he liked (he's 8 ) he spent quite a bit of time playing one of the Fast and Furious/Cruis'n games (which are pretty good btw, for that sort of thing). While pinball was a hard sell, I don't know that he even knew what they were, I did actually get grandpa to play the Medieval Madness re-make  ;D

Hit up the sale at Gamestop to spurge on slightly more expensive stuff than I would usually buy (all these are CIB)

Sonic Rush and Infinite Space I recognized immediately from the boxes. The third one is an Educational title for how to write Kanji, apparently part of the Professor Kageyama series of Educational titles (known as Personal Trainer here in the States).

But of course I knew you'd be the first to respond to my Japanese DS pickups. BTW apparently the Infinite Space game isn't in the database, so I submitted it.

My dad had one of those when I was a kid. I always liked the way the buttons felt, they're a little different than most other buttons.....is that weird?

You, ummm... liked the way the buttons felt, huh? The depravity of your calculator fetish knows no depths...  :fap:

- Sharp Zaurus ZR-5000 PDA Personal-Organizer-Palmtop-Computer-Thingy, $4.49: I'm gonna enjoy fiddling around with this bad boy.

That's pretty great, some of those things are really cool. Played with one a little at a retro game event a couple years ago, not that one, but something similar.

I always gravitate towards pocket PCs and palmtop computers from the '80s to mid-'90s. The touchscreen is gravy.

Found a few things today, for all of $8 total:

The PS2 demo disc is sealed.




(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5798/23288578306_d24805dd28_o.jpg)

A few years ago I got to play with one of these, a newer version maybe. They're pretty fun, but it's very similar to actually flying a RC plane. The controller is really close to the real life thing. If you wanted to get into RC planes, getting one of these is the way to go for practice. Don't want to smash up you multi-hundred $ RC plane first time out. Get this and learn at home.

Someone found, and posted, one of these a while ago, was it Zagnorch  ???

It was indeed... but just the controller, with USB plug.

I've encountered the RC flight-sim controller a few times over the last several months, all of them USB. If you're fortunate, I just might encounter one again real soon...

Last week was my first week posting want ads and it's working pretty well. Also works AMAZING for selling systems. I posted in roughly 10 groups this week but have been looking for more of them and I'd say I'm on roughly 30 now. I don't know if I can top this week though.

Black Friday pick ups!  I have other things to post, but these are timely.

(http://i.imgur.com/YTPmhBl.jpg)

Time Slip (SNES): $9.10

Plok (SNES): $9.10

Space Ace: $5.46

Darkwing Duck manual (NES): $10

Silver Surfer (NES): $5

Point Blank 2 (PS1): $8.99

Point Blank 3 (PS1): $16.48

Everything but Silver Surfer and the manual was from a new local game shop having its first Black Friday sale.  I generally find that shop's prices completely ludicrous, but I found these gems for an agreeable price.

Time Slip is a game I have never seen in the wild.  Plok is a game I have passively chased since I first got a SNES, either passing it by when I mistakenly thought I owned it or just never seeing it for a reasonable price until now.  And SPace Ace, well, it was there and I was masochistically curious.

Point Blank 2 and Point Blank 3 were the real coups for me.  I love light gun games, and now I have the complete Point Blank series for my PS1.  I really can't wait to try them out when I can assemble the full rig.

Silver Surfer and the Darkwing Duck manual came from my favorite local game shop.   The manual is in good condition, but Surfer has a hole smashed right through the front of the cart.  It still works, but boy is it ugly.  However, I dig that, and seeing that game languish in a bin for months and months finally spurred me to pick it up.

(http://i.imgur.com/SaGmfUj.jpg)

When I returned from my shopping, I found my Retro Freak premium had been delivered.  Really excited to test this out.  However, the controller feels just as terrible and cheap as any included with a clone console.  Glad I splurged on the controller adapter for it.

Hey now,

If Toy Soldiers War Chest It doesn't have the TransFormers in it, then I am not interested. If this was an attempt to get me to glom onto a PS4, it failed miserably. But hey, at least it doesn't include *SHUDDER* Snarf from the ThunderCats. Bad enough that it probably has Orko in it...

ANYway, I followed up my "Blue Friday" shopping with a little a little "IRL Monday" shopping:

This was £1. (The game wasn't in it)

This was £1.99, as you can see on the sticker. (These Cash Converters stickers NEVER come off cleanly.)
It's sealed, but there's what could be a bite taken out of one of the corners and the front is dented in...

(http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p717/jansolee66/2015-12-03%2000.16.46_zpswmqwiio4.jpg) (http://s1347.photobucket.com/user/jansolee66/media/2015-12-03%2000.16.46_zpswmqwiio4.jpg.html)

All pretty decent stuff here.

I went to my old game store and found some reasonable, if unspectacular prices: Final Fantasy IX and Suikoden on the PS1 for $20 and $40 CDN respectively (I'd priced them out at $85 CDN or so online w/ shipping and import charges). Shining Force (Genesis) was without its manual but otherwise in very good shape (again, I spent $40 CDN).

Super Star Soldier (TurboGrafx-16) was an Ebay birthday gift from me to me. I in no way got a steal on it, but I just don't care (I normally do).

That's quite a nice haul!  We've played Suikoden and Shining Force for the playthroughs and I loved both games. That's a great TG16 shooter too!

This was £1.99, as you can see on the sticker. (These Cash Converters stickers NEVER come off cleanly.)
It's sealed, but there's what could be a bite taken out of one of the corners and the front is dented in...
*snip*

I think I might have one of those in my collection, but I never actually added it to my collection page. BTW that corner definitely looks like a mouse or rat went at it...
Hmm... Not sure why they'd do that...

Quote
This was £1.75 (It's also American.)
*snip*

Do you encounter any non-UK / non-EU games frequently? Just curious...
In the wild? Hardly ever... Most of my non UK/EU games come from either eBay or you. ;)

Picked up a Game Boy lot from a 40-50 something woman. Said it was her deceased mothers. Well her mom sure did take good care of her stuff. Everything here is MINT. Easily the best condition Game Boy I have ever seen and will be my go to DMG now. I paid $10 for everything.

(http://i.imgur.com/TjK7koY.jpg)

Donkey Kong [Player's Choice] - New Variant
Donkey Kong Land - New Addition
Pac-Man - New Addition
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins - Condition Upgrade
Tetris - Condition Upgrade

Total: +2 Games, +1 Variant

Total Game Boy Games Owned: 22


Man, I wish I could find nice GB hauls like that locally.  It seems like I always have to drive 3 hours to the "big city" to even get GB games, let alone come home with a nice batch like that.  Glad it's going to a good home ;D

@jansolee66 - amazing finds!  I'll echo banana's statement about Super Star Soldier - I was lucky enough to snag a copy of that a couple years back.  Great stuff!

You use coupons and keep watching:

(There was also a payout from a lawsuit again Walmart and netflix)

@Gamernick: DBZ cost me $0.00... just a lot of time. Blue Cross Blue Shield has a points program. You gain points for working out, physicals etc. You can then spend the points on games etc.

They had a special going so I was able to grab DBZ and a Disney Infinity figure for my son for $0.00

I have to admit, I usually don't really play my games nearly as much as I should, but being home sick for a couple of days has allowed me to sink my teeth into Suikoden. Very interesting game.

Haven't played Superstar Soldier, but if other TG16 shooters are any indication, I'm sure I'll love it.

Hey all - got a lovely pre-order today that I pre-ordered seems like forever ago.  GameStop didn't even call me even though I paid it off at the time of Pre-order - Jerks! Good thing I remembered to go in! 

Speaking of pre-orders for those who Pre-ordered the next Deux Ex Game - Collectors or Standard - it has been moved from February release date to late August with the possibility of being moved to either December or to next year.

Here is my pre-order -

I took full advantage of G*meSt*p's Skylanders Day promotion, and picked up the following SuperChargers tchochkes:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2012-5-15a_zpsnxq3a5md.jpg)

- Figures: Big Bubble Pop Fizz, Dive-Clops, High Volt, Nightfall, Smash Hit, Splat

- Vehicles: Burn-Cycle, Dive Bomber, Sea Shadow, Stealth Stinger


...and that was just part of my Skylanders Day scores; the others are on their way. In the meantime, here are a few non-Skylanders scores I picked up yesterday for trade credit:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score%2012-5-15b_zpsnms1jjra.jpg)

- Bad Dudes for NES

- Buster Bros. for GB

- Battleship for GBC

- House of the Dead: Overkill for Wii


Thank you for your attention.

Congrats on the Decap-Attack, Mike. Great game!

Zag, also digging the Buster Bros pickup. I didn't know that got a GB release. I will have to be on the lookout for that one!

Here's what I scored yesterday. First, a decent, and interesting, Goodwill score:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-12/2832B463-05CB-47C2-A2A8-095328EBDDAA.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-12/2832B463-05CB-47C2-A2A8-095328EBDDAA.jpg.html)

A PSX wheel, and a PS2 wheel. I have the V3 wheel for N64 as well, but NOT the matching pedal, so I'm hoping against hope that the pedal accessory is interchangeable!!!

Popped into the local game store again, and snagged more NES sleeves, a classic childhood favorite NES game (finally!), and one of the Saturn games that was traded in there a few weeks back. I can only hope I'm the only Saturn collector in the area, so maybe I can get most of the good games over time. I don't think I'll be shelling out $149 for the Street Fighter Collection, or $200 for Mega Man 8, however. Too rich for my blood.
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-12/7302FAFF-F626-4025-861C-A1FED7550729.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-12/7302FAFF-F626-4025-861C-A1FED7550729.jpg.html)

And as per usual, I scored pretty big at the pawn shop. The clerk I almost always talk to said he had just put a lot of these PS2 and Xbox games out, so my timing was perfect. Jade Empire is a duplicate, and of course, one of those Xbox copies of Gun will be a sale/trade copy. I'd never heard of Tork before, or Space Chimps, for that matter.
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-12/8E930CF7-F6D7-4A02-BF43-153D6883C270.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-12/8E930CF7-F6D7-4A02-BF43-153D6883C270.jpg.html)

Look at all this awesome stuff!

(http://i66.tinypic.com/iz40so.jpg)

Gamestops website had a ton of "new" PC games for $1 or 2 a piece, so I went ahead and ordered all the things.  Warcraft III was a pretty nice surprise.  I didn't think that would ever be something Gamestop still had.

(http://i67.tinypic.com/kcf5l4.jpg)

Speaking of Gamestop, I found this at one for $5 brand new.  I didn't have a PlayStation Move before this, so that's a nice little bonus.

(http://i63.tinypic.com/29xtbu1.jpg)

Hell yes.  I got this from Amazon for $20ish bucks.  It was new but damaged stock, the damage being that one of the back corners was smashed a bit.  It was very, very minor and I'll take that for a discount that steep any day.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/23lid1x.jpg)

These are some random NES games I got from Disc Replay.  I sat down to test them and 4 hours later I was at the end of Xexyz.  That's a fun little game.

(http://i67.tinypic.com/9i9u68.jpg)
(http://i68.tinypic.com/mj9rtv.jpg)

This is the stuff I got from Amazon Warehouse deals.  There was about a week of really good prices and then everything dried up really fast again.  It's probably the Christmas rush, so I'm not to worried.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/apefmf.jpg)
(http://i64.tinypic.com/34q22ys.jpg)

And this is the stuff I grabbed from thrifts.  I found the Warcraft III expansion literally days after I got the base game from Gamestop.  It's weird how that happens sometimes.  My oldest daughter loves Super Why so I grabbed that games for her.  It kept her enthralled for 3 days.  That's a pretty a good way of spending $3.

(http://i63.tinypic.com/ohk7iw.jpg)

Hey look, another picture of Gamestop stuff!  These were all $1 games.  The Mario Ornaments were just too cool to pass up.  I'm loving all of the collectible swag that has come out around Mario's 30th anniversary and Super Mario Maker.

(http://i65.tinypic.com/f04v11.jpg)

And the final picture.  This was Best Buy's deal of the day a little while ago for $20.  I haven't bought a Vita yet and the PS4 remote play looks awesome since my wife always hogs the living room TV, so I think this little thing is going to see quite a bit of use.

And that's it for this time!

Despite Ziggity Zag's consistent board game finds I believe that I have surged into the lead for the most important month of the year, with my find today.

Have a sample of this game's amazing genius. You'll need to channel the inside trader that lives inside of us all, and always focus on winning!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dz7GRRvwCso

Later at my local DAV I found yet another nice collection of cassette tape holders. Only these all had handles! After going through all of the options I found the finest piece to add to my collection. By now I'm just hitting a 2 game winning streak.

(http://i.imgur.com/wB7y5kM.jpg)

As you can see. Its no longer a cassette collection, but a Sega collection. Sega comes in for the assist to get a third game to that streak!

Picked up the following for $80 from a lady off facebook who was cleaning out her garage.

I didn't own any of these games.

(http://i.imgur.com/G5ASxb4.jpg)
Some random items that came with. I didn't own either of these. DuckTales is pretty rough but meh.

(http://i.imgur.com/guB0YGf.jpg)
All are CIB except Nascar Thunder 2003 and Universal Studios which are missing the manual and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat which is sadly missing the game. Super Bubble Pop and Wrestlemania XIX are sealed. Super Mario Sunshine is a double and for trade.

(http://i.imgur.com/CF4P405.jpg)
This GameCube controller is in really nice shape. The 2 N64 controllers are pretty rough though especially the grey one. Also included were a set of DK Bongos I forgot to picture. Between this N64 and Super Mario Sunshine I should be able to make up what I spent easily.

Dropped $60 on these:

Blue 3DS XL is a few nicks and dents but the screens are in great shape and works like new. The DS Lite is in good condition as well. Guy listed the pair on craigslist for $75 and I talked him down to $60


Payed 0.50 each at a charity shop.
(http://i.imgur.com/PQpHqdM.jpg)
Rock Band 3 has no manual and Beatles Rock Band is CIB.

Now that I'm no longer banned from facebook groups (I posted too many ads back to back in too many groups) I should be able to get some more scores. 'til next time.

So I finally found some decent prices at Goodwill.  MetalFro should like these.

$.99 per game, GBC was $1.99.  I left a Tetris game that was $.99

(http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa293/cvanderhoef/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20151209_2026141_rewind_1.jpg) (http://s201.photobucket.com/user/cvanderhoef/media/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20151209_2026141_rewind_1.jpg.html)
Picked this up for $.99  When I picked it up, though, it felt like something was inside.

(http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa293/cvanderhoef/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20151209_2028360_rewind_2.jpg) (http://s201.photobucket.com/user/cvanderhoef/media/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20151209_2028360_rewind_2.jpg.html)
This was inside!  $.99 for the case, game, GBC, and the dual wired doohickie!  I'm guessing the person who donated it forgot it was in there and the workers never opened the zipper on the other side where these gems were located!  Anyone know what the dual wired contraption is?

I forgot to mention I had a $5 coupon so all I paid for was one of the GBC's!  I tried a bit of Q*bert and each level is differently shaped.  Of course it is a black and white game so it's hard to tell what "color" you are supposed to make the tiles.

It's that time again! Time for me to post my scores with the awful pictures my crappy phone manages to manifest!

Paid $45 for some NES goodies. Once again a response to one of my facebook want ads.

All these games were new to my collection.
They are:
Wrestlemania: Steel Cage
Golf
Dragon Warrior
Track & Field
Gauntlet
Astyanax
The Legend of Kage
Quantum Fighter
Dragon Warrior II

(http://i.imgur.com/Jf5YePL.jpg?1)
2 New Variants to the collection
Mike Tyson's Punch Out is the Round Seal Re-Release Version...Quite a minor variant but...gotta catch 'em all!
Also, I found the ULTRA ELUSIVE grey cart Zelda. (I'm looking at you Crabby).

(http://i.imgur.com/8loB0JD.jpg?1)
Doubles! 2 copies of Super Mario / Duck Hunt as well as a copy of Contra. Contra itself almost pays for this whole lot. Up for trade / sale as always.

(http://i.imgur.com/8GAizVr.jpg)
And of course... the system. Came with an rf cable and a/v cables and 1 controller. No power adapter but I have an extra so no biggy.

(http://i.imgur.com/xEdqCsc.jpg?1)
The lady also found these and threw them in for free. Needed both of these games too! Pokemon Pinball and Pokemon Yellow. Also included is a metal Mewtwo card which is kinda neat. Apparently they were sold at Burger King in 1999.

I had a reasonably good week of smaller pickups. I'll work my way back chronologically.

On Wednesday, my local game store had a "Midnight Madness" sale. It was ridiculous how many people showed up for it (I'd estimate there were at least 125 people in front of me). I didn't get into the store until 11:15PM (it opened at 9PM). Basically, any game under $20 was half price, all controllers were half price, repros were 40% off, Magic the Gathering packs were reduced, and for each hundred dollars you spent, you'd get a gift certificate of increasing value (100-$15, 200-$35, 300-$60). I was a little tapped out and had been tasked by others to pick stuff up for them, so I didn't have the opportunity to shop much. I did spot Xardion for $10, which seemed reasonable to me despite it not being on my list of targeted games.

On Tuesday, the last of my birthday Ebay splurges arrived, Bushido Blade 2. It is as mint as you can imagine.

Last weekend, I attended a very small "geek" event that featured 10 vendors or so. A few of them had games. I saw a couple deals, but most were for games I already owned. I still managed to pick up Super Mario Galaxy and Sonic 3 at slightly below Ebay rates. I also talked to a guy called Liam Gibbs who was promoting his self-published books. He seemed like a nice enough guy and he said he was inspired by Marvel Comics and Star Wars (the books are called "In a Galaxy Far, Far Awry" after all) and certain comedy greats. I decided that for a little over $20, I could help this guy out and I might even get something decent to read out of it. So far, so good on that front.

One of the more random finds, I went to a thrift store and saw a ton of overpriced items. Ogled an Amiga 2000, but didn't want to pay the asking price when it was bare bones. This store prices their games at $7 base, which is annoying as hell, but I fished a Yoshi's Story cartridge out of a bin for that price so I can't complain. Tried to haggle for an Ultima Exodus cartridge, but they would only budge $1.

However, in the back where they have all the monitors and random PC stuff, I found the Canadian (!) manual for Final Fantasy Origins. If anyone needs it, which I suspect quite a few do without knowing, let me know. Canadian version has a 662248903026 UPC sticker over the American one, and comes with 2 manuals. I'll have to hit up Dangerboy for more info to see if he still needs it.

Unseasonably warm weather meant it was time to hit the flea market.  Here's the take:

(http://i.imgur.com/acgL8WO.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/b7SvyyW.jpg)

NES with 2 official controllers, Bandai Mega Controller, instruction booklet, & Super Mario Bros. 1-3.  $45 $40

Offered as a lot from a seller with some very poor quality and condition NES titles for sale.  The NES and the SMB games were the best condition and quality items he had.  I played the waiting game on it and the gamble paid off with a $5 price cut.  The NES and games worked a treat after cleaning, but the pins in the NES are completely borked.  I had to use a Game Genie slightly tilted to get a stable connection at all.

(http://i.imgur.com/f9qtfer.jpg)

Rocketeer, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Athena, & Lode Runner: $8 $6

From the same seller as the NES bundle.  The Rocketeer is more indicative of the average quality of his items than anything else.  While I pushed to get it as a freebie because it's so ugly, I'm still glad to have it.

Jungle Hunt (5200): $5

Not the best deal, but it seemed a better deal than paying to ship a cheapo game from an online purchase.

F-15 Strike Eagle: $5

Again, not the best deal, but not a bad one.  I bought it because it's a very nice copy and I wanted to rescue it from a life baking in the hot sun of a flea market.

The following aren't flea market finds, but Black Friday indulgences:

(http://i.imgur.com/9RwZgMj.jpg)

I'm not as into homebrew as some NES collectors, but the high quality of these titles was undeniable.  I love NES action platformers, and I am also deeply interested in PC-style adventures on the NES.  A sale was all the excuse I needed.

@Crabby: ...Keep on keeping on, man.  I can't even wrap my head around it.  I'll be waiting on that Collectorcast episode.

@Swagnorch: Jelly of that GG Ninja Gaiden

I've been doing the magical-gift-box schtick on Small Scores for a couple years now, before I was made aware of the "overstuffed GameCube" slideshow. I also like to do the gradual-camera-pullback tease (seventh post down):


http://www.rfgeneration.com/forum/index.php?topic=13169.4920


ANYway, today's post-work thrift scores were relatively sparse:

You're willing it Shaggy. Once you get to 600+ it slows down a ton so enjoy it while you can!

Yeah, I know. :(  Stuff starts getting expensive, I take it?

There is definitely a bunch that are hyper expensive, but there are still quite a few cheap ones too ($50 or less). They can be just as hard to find as the expensive ones though!

Link's Crossbow Training (Wii, £1) - The game that my Wii Zapper was missing.
The House of the Dead 2 (PC, 50p) - Goes well with the "The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return" (Wii) that I bought a few months ago but forgot to mention here.

Mmm, the lead up to Christmas.  A time when thrifting sucks, but big box stores start having ridiculous sales.  On we go!

(http://i63.tinypic.com/29glla9.jpg)

I picked these up from Disc Replay.  Zoda's Revenge wasn't marked, so they gave it to me for $4.  I can't say how much of a deal that is, but I won't complain.

(http://i64.tinypic.com/2f0gjtx.jpg)

This is the stuff I grabbed from Amazon.  Games have been weak recently, but I've bought a ton of DVDs recently.  It's picked up a bit since I took this picture, but not at levels it was this time last year.

(http://i67.tinypic.com/2hd39ya.jpg)

This is my thrift haul.  I wasn't lying about the utter suckage of thrifting right now.

(http://i64.tinypic.com/5a5jyx.jpg)

This is the stuff I got from Gamestop.  Once again, nothing major.

(http://i64.tinypic.com/20svdp0.jpg)

I got this stuff from Walmart.  I never realized how low their prices are on preowned games.  Zombii U and Tomb Raider were $6.88 a piece and the others were $2 a piece.  Walmart also only takes in games that are complete, so I don't have to worry about what shape they'll come in.  Ship to store takes forever, but I don't mind waiting a bit for a good deal.

(http://i67.tinypic.com/2vjbvur.jpg)
(http://i68.tinypic.com/f3wg0l.jpg)

Here's the good stuff.  This is everything I got from Black Friday sales.  It took over a week for some of the stuff to ship, but I got great deals on everything.  Disney Infinity 3.0 was technically the most expensive, but it was $35 at Target and I had a $25 gift card, so I technically only paid $10 for it.  This was a pretty good year for video games.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/wu2uzl.jpg)
(http://i65.tinypic.com/2uyhsms.jpg)

Finally, Target has been putting a ton of stuff on clearance and this has been my haul.  The clear winner here is the Assassin's Creed Limited Edition that was only $35.  Everything else was $10 or less.

Until next time!

I haven't played the Deus Ex games, but I've heard good things, and this particular entry in the series seems to have reviewed well, so hopefully it won't disappoint!

Here's my small Goodwill take from this afternoon:

^ MetalFRO I've never gotten my copy of TT Superbikes to work :(   probably need to spend more time with the disc re-surfacer.

You know that is based on a real life race on the Isle of Man? It's intense. Can you imagine taking a corner at 170mph on a liter bike and getting all wobbly on the landing? What about overtaking a helicopter on the straights?

Here is a video of the real thing, it's worth watching:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRWp9rhfS_0







I haven't been commenting much on the Small Scores lately, I thought is was funny Bil got a Xbox One and no one said much, find a listing of SNES games though and everyone freaks out  :P

shaggy got a Neo Geo which is awesome. Does he like the clicky stick I wonder?






I actually got some gaming stuff for Christmas this year. At this point in my life, this is rare. For the most part it's just me looking out for me when it comes to collection growth. This year was different though, maybe I've finally convinced the family I like collecting games?  :D

(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1475/23700553630_1d912e1836_b.jpg)

8 year old nephew sent me this game. I'm teaching him early :evilhappy:    I have no idea why he chose this particular one, but cool none-the-less.





(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5728/23368028414_d50fe43d42_b.jpg)

Minecraft isn't too much of a thing in our house. But I got the book from the 5 year old that we watch and my wife got the collection box from someone......





(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5711/23369445793_26dc8023d9_b.jpg)

....5 year old already got to it I see.






(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1451/23700550070_1235486bd6_z.jpg)

bombatomba bought me some games on Steam!






(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5828/23700549920_baf8aedf06_b.jpg)

....I think it was mostly for Darkstar One, because we share a love of space combat games. I am pretty excited to try it out, thanks bomba!

I don't think it's related to the movie 'Dark Star' though  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069945

I'm sure that makes no sense why I would bring that up but I've heard about that movie a few times lately so I wondered.






(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1543/23913705771_ae788fbd46_b.jpg)

My sister sent me both a Star Trek game and the 25th Anniversary VHS collection. This is totally awesome. I had all the movies before but not in the cool collectors box, it came with pins and everything.






(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1451/23369444333_d92ae12155_b.jpg)

Has this neat placard.....

Been awhile since I've posted.  All of my extra spending money the last 6 months or so had been diverted into saving for a house (which is now complete) so it felt good to make a pickup again, even if the prices weren't some amazing smokin' hot deal.  Gradius V was $36.99.

^^ Awesome shmup pickup, Slowman.  Both good games, though I must say, despite the higher price for Gradius V, it's worth it.  I've put a ton of time into it over the years.  Excellent high-energy soundtrack, to boot!

I was not aware of that, but that's cool to know!  I've picked up a number of "crotch rocket" bike racing games on the PS2 and Xbox lately, so it will be interesting to play some of them like this, and the MotoGP games.  I always enjoyed watching motorcycle racing on TV versus car racing, because of the extra talent/skill involved in managing not only the bike, but also the center of gravity and weight distribution with taking corners, etc.  Plus watching them scrape the concrete a little bit with their thick knee pads as they take corners - it's a bit of a nail biter :D

Some nice stuff there - I'm not into Minecraft, but that's a neat set.  And loving that Star Trek VHS set - very cool.

Very happy to get this boxed.....unfortunately it didn't come with any cables so I can't play the thing.  My wife bought it on ebay and the seller made no mention of the cables missing...What a great guy.

Second Secret Santa package of the season showed up the other day from one of the classiest acts on RFGen.  Big thanks to Techie413.  Pics of the hockey-est haul of the season can be found here:

BIG thanks to the NORCH for the Not-So-Secret Santa swag!  My daughter loves the Peach stuffie and I'll get good use out of the other stuff.

As much as I dig Optimus Prime, I have to admit that Devastator has the edge here.

Devastator can be taken out in the game with Bumblebee.

I think all Goodwill Game Gear lots look similar. I've only found two small groups of GG games in the wild, and 3 of those games (Sonic 2, Psychic World, and Super Monaco GP) came to my house with them!

Thanks, been a bit busy and this account was compromised for a long time from a relative playing a bad prank ... so, I just got back control over it a couple weeks ago. So, I'm back for now.

In a manner of speaking-- since its video screen is crap, I'm gonna take the shell off of it, and pop it onto one that actually works. I'm also planning to flip the Powerbak battery, seeing as how I already own one. I could be encouraged to trade it for a copy of Super Smash TV for Game Gear, though...  ;D

Haven't posted scores in a while. Then again, I haven't scored much. I bought a Retron 5 about a month ago so I've been doing more import shopping. DQII and blah blah blah GALG here bring my Famicom collection up to a total of three pieces. The Fire Emblem game I got in a trade with my dear friend Disposed Hero.

Awesome!  From my understanding, you can load a translation patch onto the R5 and it can actually patch a Japanese game on the fly.  Is this the case?

Slowman - totally freaking jealous of that Raiden II cab! Enjoy it man, I know I'd play the crap out of it!

Zag - some nice finds you got there. Pretty good Pokemon haul, and nice score on the blue GG. I still need to replace the caps in mine...

Crabby - super epic finds there. I don't think I want to know what you paid for Magical Chase. I have a feeling MY wallet would be crying for you!

Here are my first scores in 2016! I'll start with my modest game store pickups:

I'll move on to my Goodwill finds, including a relatively clean GameCube (janky controller notwithstanding):

And I'll graduate to my EPIC pawn shop find! 25 PS2 & Xbox games, including a few more rare/pricey pieces:

So the family and I usually go down to Sand Key beach every New Years Eve, but I was working this year.  So we went this weekend, and I got to go back out to my favorite flea market near Tampa.  I brought some dupes for trade to Rita and Jim,(who still remember me, even though I haven't been there in over a year) and they gave me a great deal on this stuff.  Everything but the Ps2 games were from them. The prices on them weren't what I paid. 

(http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g162/gooberjones/RF%20Generation/20160103_151422_zpsn52rtqnn.jpg) (http://s56.photobucket.com/user/gooberjones/media/RF%20Generation/20160103_151422_zpsn52rtqnn.jpg.html)

I've heard lots of good things about Zanac, so now I can try it myself.  The Ps2 games I found at another stand and had never heard of them.  So $2 each seemed reasonable to try them out.   They were CIB too.

@techwizard No its not.  It was in a crate at the very bottom of a stack.  I felt bad asking Rita to help me get it but there were no other copies and I don't see it ever.

My first pick ups of 2016 ... Things were alright in my area ...

It started out with Volleyball (Magnavox Odyssey - 1972 [CIB]) and I was really happy because that nearly completed my odyssey library ... all i need the most difficult to find boxed ... Interplanetary Voyage and Percepts ...that Percepts shipping box is going to be a jerk to find.

ANYWAY ...

Along then came Animaniacs (Sega Genesis - 1994 [CIB]) and a rather irrate opossum I was when I played Awesome Possum (Sega Genesis - 1993 [CB]) ... After hearing his voice for the first time. I felt like my ears have been violated ... Then a family member gave me a great, well-working 1990's IBM Thinkpad ... I'm rocking it out with some awesome DOS games ... Then I scurried into a resale store and noticed a boxed Power Pad for the NES with a pack in game ... the totally STUNNING, World Class Track Meet  :laugh: ...


Then I realized ... my one year anniversary was coming extremely, uncomfortably close ... I need to act fast ... I need to find a great gift ... So, I figured ... me being an opossum, what should I get my fiance for our first year together ...

(NON GAME RELATED)

I think he'll be getting the "butt" end of my humor this anniversary.

Anyway ... this opossum has things to do and games to play ... have fun  ;D

It's a KMart sticker with the price of "$79.97"

Hey now,

Wait... I'm not Zagnorch! ::)

Anyway, I was told of some deals in a toy store...

One journey later:

That's right... All of those were £1 each. £10 total. ;)
They'll just be collection pieces.

EDIT: Now there are 10 pending submissions from me. :P
EDIT 2: That was fast... they're all approved now!

Hey now,


[...]

Then I realized ... my one year anniversary was coming extremely, uncomfortably close ... I need to act fast ... I need to find a great gift ... So, I figured ... me being an opossum, what should I get my fiance for our first year together ...

(NON GAME RELATED)

I think he'll be getting the "butt" end of my humor this anniversary.

Anyway ... this opossum has things to do and games to play ... have fun  ;D

Damn, you so crazy, Sparkster, you so crazy.

Hey now,

Wait... I'm not Zagnorch! ::)

I know you aren't, but what am I?

ANYway, while the New Year's Day Goodwill crawl was highly disappointing, the next seven days weren't half-bad thrifting-wise. Allow me to demonstrate:

- CIB Pokemon Pearl Version for DS, $6.14: The local Goodwills are starting to do some weird pricing on their stuff lately.

Spoiler (hover to show)
Metal Man Remixed is based of Metal Man Reloaded from 2013 (original from 1997).

Alright. I have been putting this off for awhile. Back in October, Crabby was my copilot, on a road trip to acquire a coin-op machine. I have alluded to this, as my No.1 favorite/best score for 2015. Some of you know about this already because either A) Some of you saw some pics that Crabby took or B) I have been pm'ing questions to our resident pinball expert singlebanana, in the hopes that I can eventually figure out how to make this thing work!!!








OK. So here it is. My favourite (somewhat bittersweet) score of 2015:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/B11AEB4A-F011-4ED5-8152-6E6DFA95F7F2_zpsfxc7h8fe.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/B11AEB4A-F011-4ED5-8152-6E6DFA95F7F2_zpsfxc7h8fe.jpg.html)

I am happy with this score for what I paid for it (despite the fact that I still haven't got to enjoy playing it yet) because it is in great condition.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/e7fe30b6-3370-40f7-9be0-2449f8f28a5e_zpsmtbunvql.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/e7fe30b6-3370-40f7-9be0-2449f8f28a5e_zpsmtbunvql.jpg.html)

Here is a nice shot of the playfield:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/2009CD94-657C-4403-A2AD-2FEA7CB950F7_zpsayasdmrk.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/2009CD94-657C-4403-A2AD-2FEA7CB950F7_zpsayasdmrk.jpg.html)

True story. I will forever try and remove the glass before transport from now on, because I didn't and it broke! lol

Glad I didn't break the back glass though!:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/B536987F-9C6D-4D71-919A-2E9AE73577FA_zps1sc8pomr.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/B536987F-9C6D-4D71-919A-2E9AE73577FA_zps1sc8pomr.jpg.html)




Well there was another purchase made at the end of 2015, but I didn't arrive into my possession until yesterday. I got a good deal IMHO, especially since it was delivered from 325 miles away!







 

So here it is. Possibly my favorite score of 2016:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/7AAA73AD-AA5F-4489-94E7-32BE30E984C4_zpsqr2peoyo.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/7AAA73AD-AA5F-4489-94E7-32BE30E984C4_zpsqr2peoyo.jpg.html)

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/73FB0EE2-19E1-4F0C-B6A8-020E99C9A214_zpszyfr2bd7.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/73FB0EE2-19E1-4F0C-B6A8-020E99C9A214_zpszyfr2bd7.jpg.html)

There is electrical tape taped over the bottom of both sides of the CPC top. I haven't peeled the tape off, but I can assume, it's to prevent the CPC art from lifting.

As soon as I could, I put this baby to good use:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/94AD9626-DD8A-4544-9561-7C544B76BD8B_zpsgbnim24t.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/94AD9626-DD8A-4544-9561-7C544B76BD8B_zpsgbnim24t.jpg.html)


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/A5DAEDA1-3C8A-45AC-A67D-399D33991383_zpsibcwgsun.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/A5DAEDA1-3C8A-45AC-A67D-399D33991383_zpsibcwgsun.jpg.html)

Happy that I got to see this twice now:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/D9F9C809-41E1-4BEC-81CC-382B72BBE5F0_zpsjsxrlube.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/D9F9C809-41E1-4BEC-81CC-382B72BBE5F0_zpsjsxrlube.jpg.html)

Once by myself, and once with Crabby and our other buddy Nick, who is helping me with my pinball.

@Duke: Congrats! I know that you have been trying to find a decent priced copy for a while.

@EngineerMike: Nice scores! Good luck on repairing your machine. Hopefully it's not too hard or expensive to fix.

There are a lot of amazing scores in here to start off the new year so let's add some more....

Part 2 of the Christmas stuff thanks to gift cards:

It was $5.00 and is sealed... so why not...

The library a town over was having a book sale... normally I don't go but I'm glad I did. All the items below cost me $15.50:

Wow Addicted, that's amazing!  Did they just take the cover art for the PS3 games and throw them in those cases or were they cut at all?  Either way, you can't beat that price.

I've fallen behind in my pictures yet again.  You'd think I could find 15 minutes a week to post them, but somehow I don't get around to it.  Anyways, this I sthe stuff I picked up before Christmas:

(http://i65.tinypic.com/2eova1l.jpg)
(http://i64.tinypic.com/357ga5c.jpg)

This is all stuff I got from Amazon.  It's the usual mix of shelf filler and somewhat decent titles.  Something I found kind of odd is that Bloodrayne DVD I got also has the full version of the first Bloodrayne game for the PC.  I guess they had to find some way to move copies of that pile of shit movie.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/21b3t5h.jpg)

These are more used games I got from Walmart.  The games in the middle were $6.88 a piece.  The Epic Mickey games were $4 a piece brand new and the others were $2.  Everything was complete and in pretty nice shape as well.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/2ns185f.jpg)

I got all of these from various stores around town.  Book of Unwritten Tales 2, Brothers and Arcania Complete were all from Best Buy's buy 2 get 1 free sales from a while back.  After GCU I ended up paying right around $9 a piece for all of them.  Halo 5 and Destiney were from Meijer.  They had a buy 1 game, get another for 50% off sale.  They also had an mPerks coupon for $30 of Destiny.  I had them ring up Destiny first and it still took 50% off Halo 5, so I paid $10 for Destiny and $20 for Halo.  Not too shabby.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/vo917s.jpg)

And finally this is stuff I picked up from thrifts.  This time of the year is rough for thrifts.  I can't wait for spring.

Until next time!

Haven't been buying much of anything lately since I am saving every penny I can for an XBone, and a single common game isn't exactly picture-worthy, but I was able to snag Rare Replay for 3 bucks at a thrift store today. Definitely going to be ready for the XBone once I have it with Rare Replay and all of the Games With Gold I have accumulated over the time it has been out.

I don't know much about the longbox library, but one thing I've noticed so far is most of the games are generic space/flight simulators.

(http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w365/adsanislo/20160114_141429_zps7bf6be7u.jpg)

Got a couple of goodies in there though.  Street Fighter games are always good and I've always wanted to try Battle Arena Toshiden.

Also, thanks to ReddMcKnight for hooking me up with some cables, I'm finally able to play one of the greatest systems from the mid-90s!

Also, thanks to ReddMcKnight for hooking me up with some cables, I'm finally able to play one of the greatest systems from the mid-90s!


Glad you got them! I meant to give you a Tracking Number, but I've been a little busier than usual. Enjoy. :)

Never a pedal... never...

If it's any consolation, I still need an AV cable for my TI-99/4A...

I just have the RF switchbox it came with. I need to get some composite cables at some point. Still need a voice synthesizer as well.

@RetroRage: Jaguar - WOOHOO!

Ooooo! Freelancer! That game is great. You can still multiplayer that online, though it takes some work. If you want to set up a server and play, and you have all day to fiddle with settings and weirdness, I will totally play with you, I have a friend that will play too!

Hey all my brother got me a little gift today - only one we could find in town period - None at 2 best buys, none at toysrus, none at target, and so on - so we went to three gamestops and the one where we live had 1 and only 1! They only had 2 shipped into them.

So happy to have this!

Haven't posted in a while, but lots of good stuff has been rolling in. First, I crossed a big one off my list courtesy of Silver80, who gave me a phenomenal deal on this very complete copy of Thousand Arms for the PS1:

(http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h32/grayghost81/0116161745_zpscvt4srut.jpg) (http://s60.photobucket.com/user/grayghost81/media/0116161745_zpscvt4srut.jpg.html)
(http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h32/grayghost81/0116161747-1_zpszvdwgpvd.jpg) (http://s60.photobucket.com/user/grayghost81/media/0116161747-1_zpszvdwgpvd.jpg.html)

Beyond that, I definitely have gone a little nuts with import collecting lately. Since I've gotten the Retron 5, it gives me an excuse to scoop up Famicom and Super Famicom games knowing that one day I'll get off my lazy ass and put some translation patches on an SD card and try some of them out.

A lot of these are from eBay, many are from 99gamers as well.
(http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h32/grayghost81/0116161742-1_zpsyakv129b.jpg) (http://s60.photobucket.com/user/grayghost81/media/0116161742-1_zpsyakv129b.jpg.html)

The Super Famicom games from top to bottom, left to right are:
Fire Emblem - Seisen no Keifu, Fire Emblem - Monshou no Nazo, Dragon Quest V
Shin Megami Tensei, Majin Tensei
Magic Knight Rayearth, Ogre Battle
Albert Odyssey, Emerald Dragon


Fire Emblem - Seisen no Keifu and Albert Odyssey do not have completed fan translations as of yet but I didn't mind grabbing them because they were hella cheap. I'm most excited to actually play Magic Knight Rayearth. Even though it looks like a pretty run of the mill JRPG, I'm a huge fan of the anime and manga and I loved the Sega Saturn game.

The two white Famicom cartridges are Momotarou Densetsu: Peach Boy Legend on top and Momotarou Dentetsu underneath it. The black carts are Okhotsk ni Kiyu - Hokkaidou Rensa Satsujin and Portopia Renzoku Satsujin Jiken (Portopia Serial Murder Case) beneath it. I got these four loose Famicom carts in one cheap eBay auction but I really just wanted Portopia Serial Murder Case.

The GB/GBC games are Sanrio Timenet - Mirai Hen, Gundam Gaiden: Lacroan Heroes, and Sakura Taisen Wars. To be honest, I didn't research these titles at all, I just grabbed them off 99gamers wanting to burn some credit there.

Lastly of course is a CIB copy of Akira for the Famicom. Here's a pic of just that:

(http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h32/grayghost81/0116161748_zpsapjpepq3.jpg) (http://s60.photobucket.com/user/grayghost81/media/0116161748_zpsapjpepq3.jpg.html)

Very fun stuff all around, and I have about five more Super Famicom games on the way, but they're coming from Japan so it may take a little while for them to get here.

3 weeks after the fact, here's the stuff I got for Christmas:

My kid is already playing with the Inside Out toys, hence the empty packaging. 

(http://i67.tinypic.com/av278m.jpg)
(http://i63.tinypic.com/2aiizxl.jpg)

Look at all the quality games here.  I wasn't even aware of the existence of FFIV Complete until recently and being that the original is one of my favorite games ever, I was stoked to get it.  The game in the generic Gamestop case is Twilight Princess for the Gamecube

(http://i67.tinypic.com/zvvdza.jpg)

Finally one of my friends gave me this.  It wasn't a Christmas gift per se, since he said he said he was going to give it to me a month or two before Christmas, but I ended up getting it Christmas Day, so it sort of counts.

You can just use any key you find on the internet for those. Windows didn't have online activation until Windows XP. :)

@Crabby: Thanks! I hope to pick up more next month.

@Krunch: Nice PC & Freelancer! I'm not certain but I might have a Voodoo 2 laying around. Let me know if you want it and I'll check.

@Zag: Nice grabs on the Menacer and Ace Combat! Have you had a chance to try out the game yet?


I grabbed a couple things myself:

The PS3 games were $2.00 each.

Hey now,

Zag, didn't you score one of those Ace Combat flight sticks before cheap? Looks great.

Hence the "This will be deja vu all over again for some of you" statement in my last post. I even included a link in that sentence to help jog your memory.

Speaking of deja vu, take a look at what I found a couple days ago:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score20011915x_zpsd26ik5sl.jpg)

My second Miracle Piano sighting of the year, this time for PC. I regret to report that it was lacking a certain vital piece that a certain sniper-obsessed TI-99/4A aficionado has been looking for. Actually, even if it did have it, I wouldn't have bought it anyway; eighty bucks is a bit too much for me. I like you and all that, Dukey... but I don't like you that much. No offense.

Damn! I wonder if that Ace Combat 6 Flight Stick works on PCs. I'd love to own one if it did.

I might just look into that for ya. It is compatible with a Microsoft product, and I know some of their 360 peripherals are cross-compatible with PCs...

ANYway, I grabbed a handful of GBA carts and a GG cart for $10:

Thanks! It's been a lot of fun researching and grabbing up these games. I'm also curious if and when the market will heat up, but for now there are still loads and loads of games that can be bought from japan for just a couple of bucks each.

@Zag, I saw a Miracle for PC a few months ago at my goodwill.  Wasn't in great shape but it was boxed.

@jansolee I really love Willow on the NES.  Never finished it but I remember playing tons of it when I was a kid.  We would just wander around the first town and talk to everyone then we would leave town and kill bubbles for a while.

Glad to finally have GoW Ascension (cheap, too!), and a couple more of GameStop's $1 Wii games.

Awesome GBA SP you got there, Mumbo! I have a case just like that one, only mine is red.

Anyway, a bit late on posting this, but these are some finds I made at Goodwill a few weeks ago: Betrayal in Antara, Myst, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire 2nd Edition, Catechumen, Gus Goes to the Kooky Karnival, and Age of Empires II: The Conquerors Expansion.

@jansolee I really love Willow on the NES.  Never finished it but I remember playing tons of it when I was a kid.  We would just wander around the first town and talk to everyone then we would leave town and kill bubbles for a while.

I've never played it but it seems to be a game for which people feel a lot of nostalgia. I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Axiom Verge Vinyl 8)
(http://s25.postimg.org/n7uhp8vxb/Axiom_Verge_Vinyl.jpg)
Spoiler (hover to show)
Just got this in from USA and it's the limited Axiom Disruptor edition in 250 numbers which sold out fast.

The jacket is a bit simple and thin but the cover artwork is nice!
There is also original rough sketches from the game and liner notes from the developer and composer.

The Axiom purple edition on 750 numbers is still available at shiptoshore (USA) and onewaystatic (EU).

My pickups from Saturday, starting with the combined finds st 2 Goodwill stores:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/16A66571-38D9-444A-BF22-78008DEEC95C.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/16A66571-38D9-444A-BF22-78008DEEC95C.jpg.html)

My take from 2 pawn shops, including a new one (to me, anyway). The Way of the Warrior is CIB, including the foam insert.

This game has been close to 60 US Dollars at GameStop for a long time, pre-owned no less, but they recently knocked it down to 40, and I got it for 35. I was surprised to see it, since it's so hard to find around here.

That's one I wish I picked up when it was in stores.  I didn't cuz I didn't have a 3DS and wouldn't for several more years, but this game has done nothing but go up in price.

More stuff. Devil Survivor 2 was brand new, but I don't like it very much. Probably won't be able to sell it either. The Yokai Watch toy, I just thought it was neat, so I just bought it because I can. :P

Everything to play this game is in the box, but the cardboard house backdrop needs tabs to stay in place. I'll cut something out and try to glue them on.

I seem to always find a diamond in the rough for board games at either my DAV or Salvation Army. Today it was the Army that pulled through. Awhile back I even found and picked up a board game that I have found absolutely no information on.

Did a bit of game hunting while out with my foster boy today. Picked up a couple random PlayStation games:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/2D283828-D068-4789-8E46-20FD6F15921E.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/2D283828-D068-4789-8E46-20FD6F15921E.jpg.html)

Scored a small batch of Game Boy carts:
(http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q388/MetalFRO/57149873-8093-4010-A5D2-586E49628ABE.jpg) (http://s349.photobucket.com/user/MetalFRO/media/57149873-8093-4010-A5D2-586E49628ABE.jpg.html)

And had a decent pawn shop pickup. Someone dumped a large cache of military PS2 games, all CIB, all in pretty good shape. The Xbox games were from a rental place, and my guess is, the cases and manuals were kept in the shop, and the discs were barely rented, because they're immaculate.

That old price sticker though... €119.95?

Don't be too jealous; that copy is fairly beat-up, is missing the fold-out poster, and sports water damage:

Time for me to get back to the threads more with some finds - today my brother spent some of his tax money on some goodies at Toysrus.  one of them of course being a LEGO Game and a LEGO will show a picture of that when it gets here (Not From Toysrus Though)...But here is his little score (Lots more to come soon...hopefully)

Not a ton to show off from my last couple trips out, but I'm not a millionaire.

One of the stores I often shop at is currently trying to clear out old stock (read: sports titles), so they're giving away free sports games with every purchase over $20. I don't really target sports games but free is free. I was able to get the following 3 games:

(http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p717/jansolee66/2016-02-13%2003.47.53_zpsylsjdslv.jpg) (http://s1347.photobucket.com/user/jansolee66/media/2016-02-13%2003.47.53_zpsylsjdslv.jpg.html)

The reason I was able to get those sports games is because I bought Truxton from that same store (I paid pretty much retail for it. I just really wanted it). The next week, I was able to pick up Thunder Spirits at about half the price I expected. Finding any SNES game that I want for less than $20 CDN these days feels like an accomplishment.

Just got home from a trip to Orlando. Stopped in at Gamers Inc to check out the store and grab a few items. Ended up leaving with these:

Hey all! Patience comes to those who wait! I have waited a while to start buying out a local store of his stock and this go around was all of his Playstation & GameCube Games.   I have a few more goodies from a few of our fellow members on here coming in the mail.  The rest of it my brother and I pulled what money we could to get all the goodies your about the see! Only thing missing is his New 3DS XL which he is currently playing Pokemon Y on.   SO without further ado here is everything from just today.  My brother is literally back in the game collecting game and I am on my way back in mostly.  Now that I am caught up on everything outside of video games. 

I will be adding quite a few of the GameCube Games to the collection and a bit of the Playstation Games - But I will be selling a stack of GameCube Games & quite a few of the Playstation games so keep an eye out in my sales thread.  There is going to be some other stuff posted as well.  IGNORE the price tags we got everything far less that the marked prices.

Also want to say thanks to Disposed Hero for the Purchases I have made with him including one not pictured at this time not a clue where the photo went...so stay tuned for that.   I want to thank Fokakis for somethings we did a trade with also not pictured at this time...I'd also like to thank Ikariniku for a few things as well also not pictured..AND Bickman2k as he sent me a few things and the final piece of the puzzle along with some more from Disposed Hero are on there way soon! So stay tuned for more!

^It's a store in Council Bluffs. He's not closing or anything I just buy out his stock because it's been sitting for too long.  He's also focusing more into the new generations.

I took these pictures so long ago, I don't remember too much about them price wise.

(http://i68.tinypic.com/6pn6dc.jpg)

I ordered the Infinity toys almost 4 months from when I actually received them Best Buy.  Actually I only ordered Phineas, but for some reason they decided to send me Nick Fury as well.  Score, I guess.

(http://i67.tinypic.com/21c5dlg.jpg)

I bought these from Toys R Us.  They had some buy 1 get 2 free sale on Skylanders, so I bit.

(http://i68.tinypic.com/34qv4wg.jpg)

I got these from Walmart for some extremely low price.  Something like $2 for the DS games and under 7 for the Xbox games.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/35kvfgk.jpg)

These were from Disc Replay.  The SNES games were all complete.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/23r7f9i.jpg)
(http://i66.tinypic.com/2ic7jis.jpg)

Hey, Gamestop stuff.  Dark Souls II was $20.  The Wii games were cheap.  That's all I got

(http://i66.tinypic.com/2ldg32c.jpg)
(http://i67.tinypic.com/vsgnqr.jpg)

And this is the thrift stuff.  Nothing that cool, but this Is the first time I've even seen an Interactive "game" in person.

(http://i67.tinypic.com/2lw8xm9.jpg)

I got this stuff from my sister in law in exchange for Super Paper Mario.  Pretty good deal considering I got Paper Mario for $3 from a thrift store.

(http://i64.tinypic.com/2n6de9.jpg)
(http://i66.tinypic.com/35n22qa.jpg)

And this is the stuff I got from Amazon.  There is one more thing I got from them, and I don't know.  Something just seems a bit off...

(http://i64.tinypic.com/2vt2slh.jpg)

I'm thinking there's a small, oh so small chance that this might be a fake.  I don't know guys, it just seems so legit but I just have a nagging feeling that someone at Amazon doesn't know what the fuck they're doing.  I'm probably just being paranoid.

Only for Game Boy Color... Regular Game Boy cartridge style... Says GAME instead of Nintendo GAME BOY...
Eh, even fakes are interesting to collect. Hopefully it didn't cost too much.

I just looked up what the original looks like. So it's meant to be a Pokemon Pinball style cartridge? Those pirates didn't even try...

The dead-pixel issue might be the least of your worries. The original Game Gears (pre-Majesco) were manufactured with cheap capacitors that would usually fail quickly, eventually leaving you with an all-white screen. If you have decent soldering skills and a capacitor replacement kit that you can get off of eBay, you can do the change-out yourself with a little effort.

A few years later, Majesco took over the distribution of Game Gears, which sport higher-quality capacitors that aren't nearly as prone to quick failure as the originals. You can tell which one you have by looking at the three ovals just past the upper left corner of the viewscreen: red-green-blue for Sega, and all-white for Majesco.

The back of the case states that it's "marketed by Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.," which likely means it was a Wally World-exclusive edition. And it looks like they were blowing them out for less than three bucks a pop back in the day, if this forum post is accurate:

BTW the jack that connects the Player-2 controller to the master plug-&-play is the same as the jack for GameCube controllers. Maybe I should plug it into my GameCube and see if I can use it to play Super Mario Sunshine?

I played through the first level of Sonic 2 to test it when I unpacked it on camera, and it seems to be perfect order aside from the dead pixels so I likely won't risk messing with it unless it actually goes out.

That Coleco system in the box is the exact one I have CIB.

Hey all! Here is the finds for this week (still have the weekend to come). 

Finally knocked off a PS2 Game off the wanted list - now I just need to get all the .hack GU Games.

The Original Game Boy Box and SNES box are inserts and styros and I have all the fixings to go in them.  The Boxed GB Pocket is our first Pocket CIB.

Floigan Bros. along with BC II Grog's Revenge are great games.  Be sure to try them out.

Got another random haul for under $5. Atmosfear is one of those VHS board games, a sequel to Nightmare. I also saw VHS Baseball and VHS Clue today, but the Gatekeeper wins this day. I had to get the vinyl because the cover is just amazing. The Dragonlance calendar is probably the best find since its in great shape overall, the prints are high quality, the art is amazing, and it doesn't seem to have ever been hung up anywhere. Not sure if Shadow has the 1985 Dragonlance calendar.

I'm going to start tweeting about my random finds, so you can see all the weird stuff I pass up, like a semi shaped aftershave bottle from Avon, over there @SirPsychoPlays.

Hey All! Well we went to KC and got a decent haul of stuff and one really hard to find CIB O^2 Games.  So here it all is! Check out the Small Toys Thread for some awesome retro sealed toys!

(http://i.imgur.com/h7rJReP.jpg)

But first let me start off with the things I got from purchases & NSSS From Mr. Norch.  Thank you Bickman2K and Disposed Hero for the awesome goodies! And Thank you Mr. Norch for the awesome gift and Mechassault!

The Dragonball Tenkaichi 3 is Sealed :-) Thanks again Bickman! Huge addition to my collection!

These are all complete and in pretty good shape! Guess we are going to go for a CIB or Mostly CIB O^2 Set.

Then there is this! Very Complete! Had no idea this was pretty rare.

Whoah, whoah, whoa-- hold the phone there, buddy...

...they made a Little Nicky video game?

Now ya got me curious...

Why do you think he had me buy it for him? ;)

Yes, I'm sure it's bound to be horrid, but sometimes that's half the fun!

I will be late getting home tonight, but once I get through everything, I will have pics of the large batch of Game Boy carts I grabbed yesterday in Lincoln. I scored some CIB PSP games, too.

Here is the haul from yesterday.  I forgot I had a few games to pick up from Gamestop that I pre-ordered so when I went to pick up one game I ended up having to pick up all of them - blah too much but some awesome titles.  Also got a couple of Saturn Titles I need to finish the set in the mail. I have one more coming soon hopefully.  I think I am down to like 3 or 4 titles now. If anyone knows or has a CIB copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga for sale I am willing to make quick payments on it :-)

Once again it’s been awhile since I’ve posted in here. Like always I’ll try to make a pleasant mix of TL/DR and lots of huge pictures.

Firstly, GamerNick…….sigh, leave some games for the rest of us man. Has everyone else seen all the stuff he’s been getting? Didn’t he like buy out a store or something? Anyways, liked the Atari and GG boxes, the Xonox stuff especially.

The PowerLords was awesome. I only have the cart and manual, finding it CIB is great! Don’t know if you have Atlantis for the O^2 yet, it can be a pain. Powerlords sells for the most and people say it’s the rarest but at least it’s available for sale nearly always. Atlantis is almost never for sale anywhere, there was a yearlong period when I was looking for it when it didn’t show up on ebay.

Even with all that Sauza found lately, he wasn’t able to keep up with you……or Zagnorch, them two combined actually. You are at least leaving some Call of Duties and MLB 2006s for us aren’t you?  :P

(http://i.imgur.com/UMoH1r0.jpg)








MetalFRO keeps finding all these GB games, so that's pretty awesome. This has got to be one of the biggest groups of them I’ve seen in one post in this thread, not to mention all the others he found lately. At least you’re limiting yourself to only buying all the Gameboy games in existence unlike GamerNick who is buying all of everything  :D

And the PSP games, that is a way better selection of them then I ever come across.

Here's my real good CIB PSP score comprising stuff I bought from 2 game stores and a Goodwill:

Continuing with the making this post, extra-long-by-talking-about-everyone-else-before-I-even-get-to-my-stuff….


Zag found a RealFlight controller/sim/game, more on that later….


Hey now,

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score20021516a_zpso1rvl8fq.jpg)

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score20021516b_zpsoi7yqwuy.jpg)




And at some point….


Quote from: Izret101
There were 2 versions of that Coleco handheld. The Head to head one and a single player one……


Because.…


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score20021616b_zpsiiyhzok0.jpg?t=1455570806)

All right, back to you...
I have a boxed Coleco thingy too, although the controller looks similar, the box is nothing like that. But, I did see a stand alone Controller in a thrift store today that looked exactly like yours oddly enough.





Zag also found some early Nintendo Powers, while I am jelly1 about the Fan Club News, I would like to point out that I wrote a blog about how a letter I wrote as a kid was featured in that Track & Field issue of NP, the one with the rocket shoes. I would like to post the link to it (my blog) here but at some point, some of the images got down-rezzed, and they are now too small to be readable, which is important to that story. I really need to go back and re-do those images….

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/score20020816c_zpst8bmgpgf.jpg)




This stuff is cool, I just wanted to point that out:

Last week's finds:

SEGA Game Gear Carry pac
This was awesome to find. I think it's never been used! It even has the tag on it!
(http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll222/mumboking/Photos/Games/DSC_0984.jpg)(http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll222/mumboking/Photos/Games/DSC_0985.jpg)

Shadow Dancer (Master System, No manual) and Champions (Amiga)

Crabmaster found a SS and a Game&Pocket, Redd found some rock’n CD-I stuff and Piles got that Mega Man CIB….




Honestly, at this point I wonder whether I should save this post until the next page of the small scores thread. I mean, page 84 is already pretty long and this post would make it really long, hmmmm….2





Remember back when I said we would get to RealFlight stuff again? Well, Mr Zagnorch sent me a very awesome NSSS Christmas gift, in late February. To his credit, he did know it was February, hence the Valentine’s Day card, it changes to 3 different images!


(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1494/25091629441_3927b64e67_b.jpg)

Without posting a quote from that post too, I got one of these a while back, CIB. Mine was gameport though, and while I have machines that would run it, they are put up in nice stacks on shelves in the garage (oh, to have a bigger house) Zag sent me a nice USB one….

RealFlight controllers go along with a simulator/game. It helps you to learn to fly RC planes. The simulation is pretty good. Since when you fly a real RC plane you are standing in one spot, using a controller to remotely interact with something in the distance, much like a video game. This lets you get used to flying a RC plane without the worry of smashing up your multi-hundred-$ investment on a hard landing. The controllers are fairly accurate to the real ones. They are made by Futaba, which makes real controllers for real RC planes. I actually have one of them so you can see the similarity here, at least between these two models:

Moving on….





I don’t post pictures of every RETRO magazine I get, but when I do it’s of ones I really like the cover art of:

(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1605/25184894355_0af6fac75d_b.jpg)




Family member gave me cool gift. GBA stuffs! The game boxes might be the first GBA boxes I own and they are super nice. I’ve been playing Super Mario right before bed almost every night now. Who knew you could play games in bed?

Thrift Store finds:

Probably have Starcraft already, but you know, future lan parties. LotR game and VHS movie! (big LotR fans here) Thrift store prices on all this, so a few dollars total:

I know you guys aren’t really Steam fans, but you know, they are kinda still video games.

Got Cities Skylines, Miscreated and Sanctuary RPG Black Edition on a recent sale.

Skylines because I always have said if I had to answer the “stranded on a desert island” question, Simcity 4 would be my game to take. I have high hopes Skylines will change that.

Miscreated is an early access, FPS, survival, crafting, many-multi-player game. I have a few friends playing it all the time right now and I wanted to have something to play with them.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/299740/

Sanctuary RPG Black Edition. If you have a hankering to play a current day riff on the old BBS style rouge/ascii/fantasy/adventure game, shoot, this is it. It looks fantastic in the little I’ve played so far, and is on sale again for $2 until the 29th 
http://store.steampowered.com/app/328760/

Bejewelled 3 is not something I just bought, it's just there in this shot because my wife just discovered we have it. She has been playing it like crazy.


(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1461/24554210064_63a14b7083_b.jpg)





And because I need more Steam games, I was sent this for my one-year-older-day:

(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1666/24554204584_2c52656875_b.jpg)




Clearly, I need more Steam games:

(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1649/25091629991_2a5344a130_b.jpg)






While I’ve been taking notes to make this post, we went to another thrift, less than $7 even with a book I didn't show,

(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1458/25173720956_9b685f0b65_b.jpg)


Civ V is a maybe gift, I am thinking it’s unlikely to work as it DRM’s through Steam. But even if it doesn’t, the instructions, box and tech-tree chart will make nice additions to our own copy, it is one of my wife’s favorite games after all. The minigolf game turned out to be without disc! Everything else was taped shut at the store so I didn’t think to check this one, it wasn’t taped and is without the game! The 4 channel mixer isn’t a gaming thing per se, but I might use it to hook up more game systems? The parallel port to USB is gaming related because:

Hey now, Nupes & company... but mainly Nupes...

Regarding your published letter in that ish of Nintendo Power: Can I have your autograph?! I've never met a fellow published periodical-letter-writer before! I had an e-mail printed in an issue of The Punisher from the 2000s Garth Ennis run. In my e-mail I pointed out a subtle continuity error that I hoped would win me a coveted Marvel No-Prize... only to learn that they'd given that up a few years prior. BTW that has been the ONLY letter or e-mail I've ever sent to a periodical, and it will likely be the last, giving me a perfect 1-for-1 record.

And now, another weird coincidence: After I shipped out the USB R/C simulator flight controller, I drove down to the nearest Goodwill, where I found and bought that complete RealFlight G3 set. But now here's where things get spooky. Today I made a little thrift pickup that I was planning to show off on the tech-score thread. But seeing this has forced my hand:

Six channels and four servos, baby... whatever the hell that means. While the box is a bit beat up, it looks like the controller, batteries, servos, and hookups have barely been touched, let alone used. The only bummer is that it's missing the operating manual.

Oh, and while I have your attention, Nupes, take a gander at what I grabbed for under four bucks:

- Japanese Wild Arms 3 case and manual with Japanese Final Fantasy X disc, $0.50

- Super Breakout & Battlezone GB cart, $3.98 $3.19

- LoZ Link's Awakening DX and Oracle of Seasons GBC carts, $5.99 each

- CIB Ratchet & Clank Full Frontal Assault, $3.95

 
Aaaand that's it for now. Next, please.

You should have picked it up. Those things sell for real money on ebay, a quick look just now and I saw them going for $16-20 an issue for just random ones.

I enjoy the magazine. It's supposed to be bi-monthly but isn't really. This February makes month 26 and we are only  up to issue 10, oh well, it's fun anyways. They aren't exactly meant to be current news anyways.

That controller is pretty much what I have, I didn't show the box and stuff in my picture. I inherited a whole RC plane and all the stuff to go with it from my uncle. It's about 90% put together. It has a little gas motor that spins at something like 20,000 rpm and makes almost 1 horsepower. The receipt in my box says he paid something like $225 for that box you are showing if I remember right. That would have been more than 10 years ago at this point.

And yes, you can have my autograph?.....haha, I really need to fix those images in that blog post of mine talking about my letter in that issue of NP. The images are of a newspaper clipping and are part of why I wrote the magazine. At one point the host downsized them to be un-readable. So I need to re-scan the newspaper and update the blog post, and then somehow shamelessly self-promote my blog, again.

Well Sunday I got off my 12 hr shift at 530 in the morning and decided to just wait a few hours and hit the flea market for the first time in a long while.  It's usually very hit or miss trying to find any games, let alone any carts.  I was lucky that Sunday they finally had a few sellers with them.  Nothing truly impressive but actually buying Nintendo carts for the first time in I'm not sure how long felt good.

Got a good price on it.  I didn't notice until I got home that the PS2 is a Gamestop Refurb.  Also, the Dreamcast and the Genesis didn't have the power supply. :(  If someone has a spare lying around, please let me know.

@ shaggy - Dreamcast "power supply" is nothing special. You just need a cord that fits in there. You probably have one laying around somewhere. There is no transformer in other words, its just the cord.



I'm back with more games to post already!

But before I do, I have to say, in the short time since my last post you guys have got some Shining Force, Starpath nonsence, Colin McRae, NES games, a DS "game" I didn't know of, Dreamcast(!), and some awesome BIG boxes?! This is why everyone comes here, to look at all the fun stuff.




My wife, known for her shopping for deals prowess, bought all this for me. Normally she comes home with stories of how she found apple juice for 19 cents a gallon or chilli at 95% off the sale price, maybe she had coupons to get toothpaste for free, you know, boring junk like that. Yesterday she texted me at work saying she bought a bunch of games. Apparently Rite Aid was clearencing out games. I don't know if it was just that one or if it's all of them. But she found all these for a great deal. It also makes the most new games I've (we've) gotten at once.

Ignore the prices! They were something like 75% off sale price or something, so the prices shown are way off.

Some of these are going to be gifts, since we don't have a 3DS or a PS3, those are likely to be given to friends/family.

(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1593/25267060165_d3696f71fd_o.jpg)

The Call of Duty Ghosts, we might try to return that, it didn't show up as on clearence on the reciept  :/      Excited to try Prototype 2, Omerta, Wreck it Ralph, Infinite Undiscovery and the LotR game (if I can borrow a 3DS)

So the moral of the story is, to get other people to be excited to buy games for you, then you can just sit back and watch the goodies roll in   :laugh:






I forgot to show this in my last post. Wife got me this for Valentines Day.

The star of the show is Beavis and Butthead, Banana. :laugh:

I was thinking the same thing!  I've not heard of that B&B game, but I played the crap out of 'Beavis and Butthead: Hock-a-loogie' back in the day!

Nice local pickup, shaggy!  Some other great finds, everyone!  I love coming into this thread and seeing all the cool stuff you guys pick up :D

- EGM magazine back ish, $0.29

- CIB Crash Bandicoot Greatest Hits for PS1, $2.99

- CIB inFamous for PS3, $2.99: The case is covered in sevral signature. I'm guessing the former owner brought this copy to a convention where the inFamous development team was holding a discussion panel.

- CIB Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation for 360: I grabbed this to go with the flight-stick rig I recently picked up.

- HyperScan Ben 10 booster pack, $1.68

Got a Dreamcast cord for $4.35 off of Ebay.  As for the Sega Genesis power supply, I see third party power supplies on Ebay but aren't those known for frying your Genesis?  Isn't the rule of thumb to get a first party adapter?

Managed to find a video game soundtrack in my local opp shop, which turns out to be a pre-order bonus for Atelier Rorona in Europe.  I seldom get any deals from stores, but between this, GRabbed by the Ghoulies and GoW Ascension steelbook, this store's paying off.

You can also use a Dreamcast power cord for a Saturn and vice versa. They have the same connector. All the power circuitry is interior for both systems. I need to check the power cord mecca at a thrift store nearby to see if they have another half dozen Genesis power supplies. I have a few extra Model 2/3 Genesis PSUs because of them already.

Yep, just a standard C7 coupler (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_60320#C7.2FC8_coupler) power cable.
The PS1, PS2, PS3, XBOX, Dreamcast and Saturn and many more things (DVD players, power bricks, etc...) use the same cable.

Krunch - excellent grab of Xyanide! It's a good shmup, and pretty unique, too. Hard!

Zag, that Devastator is making me jealous, haha! I totally had that as a kid, because I had a rich uncle who wasn't married and had no kids. Unfortunately, a kid on my street came over and broke 2 of the Constructicons so I couldn't build him anymore. Sad day.

Here's today's Goodwill haul. Test Drive and Rainbow Six are missing the games themselves, so I got each for a quarter. Can't beat that! Crimson Skies is a dup, so that's going into the FS/FT list.

Pawn shop grabs, all CIB except Motorstorm, which is missing the UMD. Got that for a buck.
