picked up Prince of Persia and Battle Arena Toshinden for the Gameboy last night, $4 each loose. also nabbed Streets of Rage and Home Alone 2 for Genesis both with boxes but no manuals, $3 each.

I loved Streets of Rage as a kid. I should seek them back out.

A small find but small ones add up.


Title: Re: small score
Post by: sharp on December 09, 2004, 11:10:31 PM
I didn't know Battle Arena Toshinden was released for the game boy. Anyway don't like the fighters for gameboy. I only have Samurai Showdown. One reason, I like SNK (even though Takara made the game.

another slow week games wise (though I did score some other cool stuff) all I managed was a sealed VHS tape of Captain N the Game Master.

I loved that show.  I wish they would release a DVD with all of the episodes.

only managed one Genesis game this week. Toe Jam & Earl Panic on Funkotron. 49 cents. Now the box for it I got 2 years ago finally has a game nestled within it.

I also found an old hardbound book called "Invent Your Own Computer Games". It's got code for simple games done in Basic.

Purple Gameboy?
Not Gameboy Color or Pocket?
I never really see that many colored Gameboys.
Just the black and classic gray.

I dunno if I ever posted it anywhere else, but a while back I picked up the sweet sweet Contra III for about $1.50 at a thrift.  It was loose, but in great shape, and at that price, it was definitely worth it.  Nothing huge, but I was happy.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Sauza12 on February 18, 2005, 06:24:00 AM
I got Off-World Interceptor Extreme, and Battle Arena Toshinden longboxz PSX games from EB as well as Clock Tower 3 for PS2 for about $11.

About all blue Stinger is good for is filling a hole.

Nice finds though.

How many Long Box games do you have left to find?

Hey another attic "find" for me!  I came across a couple Nintendo Powers from the SNES years, A few Nintendo Game Players Encyclopedias that I got from the dollar store 10 or so years ago, and the official Nintendo Game Boy Players Guide.  I really like the Game Boy guide.

Post by: Lord Nepenthean on March 20, 2005, 04:38:36 PM
Cool finds, especially at those prices.  How many Nintendo Power issues did you get?  I probably would've gotten every one they had at that price.  There was a local flea market vendor that used to have huge stacks of old video games - probably hundreds of them.  I think they were between 25 and 50 cents a piece.  When I first started collecting I pretty much had no interest in them so I didn't buy them.  Then one day I realized why I should buy them, and went back.  They told me they had thrown them ALL away just about two days earlier.  I still kick myself (and them) over that to this day.

$5 bucks is a good price for any complete game. Even stuff like Duck Hunt or Super Mario Bros. Yeah those games are dirt common and considered pretty worthless among collectors but how often do those turn up complete?



Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: CatchFiveBats on March 27, 2005, 09:27:05 AM
Very true.  It's funny, from the back it looked like a PC game, but I looked at it anyway, and when it turned out to be an NES game, I had to control my glee.  The only problem with it is there's some slight discoloration on the cart itself, but that's not that big of a deal.

I had a nice find on my lunch hour today.  I picked up 6 TG-16 games for $1.99 each.  All complete and in nice shape.  Now all I need is the system to play them on!!

TG-16 - Blazing Lazers, Bonk's Adv., Dragon's Curse, Galaga 90, Keith Courage, Splatterhouse

Sega CD Backup Cart - Complete - $8.99
Genesis Powerball Loose - $1
Game Gear Batman Returns Loose - $1.99

Probably paid too much for this  Ãƒâ€šÃ‚£20 for a Game and Watch "Tropical Fish"

unoboxed, good condition, with battery cover.

meh - I don't mind paying more in a shop, as I get to inspect the item in person, and there are no postage costs (or postal damage risks) as opposed to most eBay sales.


out of interest, what are these worth?  Not that I am selling it, it's in my collection for keeps now.

While I was up north I bought two of those Jacks plug and play games.  I got the Namco one and the Atari paddle one for a combined $20.

Well some good news. I got a boxed C64 cart from a guy in Scandanavia, in exchange for a C64 tape.

The game is Cyberabll, boxed in mint condition.

I swapped him an adventrue tape, which is probably quite sought after, but not uber rare - as I had it up on a swaps list for a month before anyone offered.

Interesting find today, it's a pirate NES/Famcom in a N64 style controler.  Came with second controller, a light gun, and a 76 in 1 Famcom cart.  I wouldn't support pirate stuff from companies that sell it but this one was used and the $5 went to the Salvation Army.  It looks like this one (but I didn't get the box).  Not sure why this missguided fool thinks there are 76000 games in his.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=62054&item=8182275384&rd=1

Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: bum-man on April 07, 2005, 04:09:58 AM
It's interesting from a technology standpoint (a whole NES system on a chip), but the placement of the cart makes it a little awkward to use.  A nice addition to my collection none the less.

It's funny, my collection has gone from N64 being in fourth place for number of games to first in a day.

The attachment is a picture of some shelves that I built for the games I got, as well as the games themselves (at least, the ones I kept).

I bet you actually just post less about what you find so people don't move down there

I on the other hand have not had a good find in MONTHS.

Also i just notced that the bottom shelf especially is bending in the middle. May want to add another of those little L bracket supports there.

I would, but there isn't a stud to put a bracket in.  The places where the brackets are is where the studs are, so I guess that will have to do.

Blockbuster has a buy one, get the 2nd half off deal going on for used titles. I picked up Jet Set Radio Future and Outlaw Volleyball for a combined price of $15 plus tax. Is that a good deal?

I'll rephrase the question to specify my intentions:

Given the nature of said deal from Blockbuster, does the reputed value of said 2 games warrant paying a total price of $15 plus tax? Or, could said buyer (me) have found a better deal elsewhere for said games?


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Sauza12 on April 14, 2005, 07:04:52 AM
If you searched for a while you probably could have found better deals, but I think you did pretty well there.

Oh, and last night I got a complete copy of Game and Watch Gallery 3 for Gameboy color for $3.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Izret101 on April 14, 2005, 09:23:32 AM
ike they said if you search chances are you could find a better deal but in the end if you are satisfied with your purchase that is all that matters.

Very nice find on the complete  Gameboy Game for 3 bucks Sauza


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: phoenix1967 on April 14, 2005, 11:11:23 AM
Sauza and Izret,

Thanks. That's the kind of feedback I meant. It sounds like I should've shopped around a bit more.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on April 14, 2005, 12:24:48 PM
were they complete with case and manual? if so, $7.50 for an Xbox game is a good deal. shopping aroung around might have have saved you a couple bucks... maybe. you also could have gotten a cheaper price on ebay, but then you'd have had to pay shipping so it's a wash.

if the cases were the BB rental cases let me know. there is a local rental shop near me that sells the empty cases for a quarter a piece. I can get you some green ones.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: phoenix1967 on April 14, 2005, 12:36:54 PM
both were complete with cases and manuals. i'll check to see if they were the BB or the original green cases and let you know. i'm fairly sure that i'll need at least 1.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Izret101 on April 14, 2005, 01:47:18 PM
Ya Den brings up another good point. ou may have found a better deal elsewhere but the cost in time/gas or shipping IMO would have outwieghed the 2-3 extra bucksyou may have saved.

I picked up The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game Of the Year Edition.
There has only been one at that Blockbuster for awhile and it has been bugging me.
So after getting pissed that a cashiers check from the bank was 4 dollars extra charge and none of the gas stations around me did money orders (everyone said that the other places did though)

It cost me 20 bucks though so not much of a score.
There goes my first "paycheck" since last summer...

That game is incredible.

Also, I got an Atari 2600 for $30 today.  It works just fine, but it doesnt play the games without the little cover over the pins.  I don't know why this is...but I don't know a lot about Atari 2600's, so if any of you would happen to know why this is, I would be very grateful if you could fill me in.  Thanks!

passed on a Zelda double screen Game and Watch, for £40. Loose, lovely condition, and I had a £10 credit note for the store. But, couldn't spare £30 for it.

Spent the £10 credit on a CIB  32x Metal Head and CIB Monopoly for the PS1

Den, I looked through my collection. You wouldn't happen to have 4 of those green cases would you? The 2 I bought were not original cases, and I have a couple other games that are not orignial cases as well. I'll bring the dolla to hockey on Tuesday...and btw, be wary of Spy vs. Spy (reviews coming in on gamespot and teamxbox are rather low).


Title: Re: the small score's thread

A loose N64 memory card for $1
and this funky ass coleco handheld for 10 cents (see attachment)

After that the girlfriend and I went to a mall where I got Dynasty Tactics and TNN Bass Tournament of Champions (Genesis) and my girlfriend got The Urbz:  Sims in the city for the Gamecube.  Not a bad day out.

Just a couple of games today, Battle Tank and Hogan's Alley for NES both loose but they were only 75 cents.  I also picked up an NES controller extension cable for 50 cents and a copy of 7th Guest for the PC for 75 cents.  But my best find was a 900mhz Athlon PC with 256mb memory, 30gig HD, CDRW, & CD for $20.  Not cutting edge but it beats the 500mhz machine that my wife has been using and you can't beat that price.

I've had an amazing two days game hunting.  Here's what I've found:

At the Goodwill for $2 ea.:

NFL's Greatest San Francisco vs Dallas 1978-1993 (Sega CD, w/box, no manual)
Virtua Fighter Kids (Saturn, w/box, no manual)
Yuke Yuke Troublemakers (N64 Japan, Complete)
St. Andrews Old Course (N64 Japan, Complete)

From the Flea Market for .25 each, Intellivision Games:

AD&D (Box Only)
NASL Soccer (Complete)
Snafu (Complete)
NFL Football (Complete)
PGA Golf (Complete)
Pac-Man (Box Only)
Las Vegas Poker & Blackjack (Complete)
AD&D Treasure of Tarmin (Cart Only)
Horse Racing (Complete)

And the following games came from Toy Liquidators...for free (yes, free).  They were going to throw them out, but I rescued them, so to speak.  Mostly sports games, but I just couldn't see that happen, regardless of what they were.

Madden 2000 (N64, New)
ATP Tour Championship Tennis (Genesis, New)
IMG International Tour Tennis (Genesis, New)
NHL 96 (Genesis, New)
NHL 98 (Genesis, New)
Frommer's Travel Guide (Gameboy, New) x3

...and these loose, used Genesis carts

John Madden Football x3
Madden '92 x6
Madden '93 x6
Madden '94 x6
NHL '94 x11
NHL '95 x5
Bill Walsh College Football
NHLPA Hockey '93 x4
NHL Hockey x7
Joe Montana II Sports Talk Football x4
NFL Football '94 x3
Sports Talk Football '93 x4

That's 61 free games, if my math is correct.  This afternoon, I got a call from the store that gave me all these, saying they had more and wanted to know if I wanted them.  :o  Think it's a few more N64, Genesis, and Gameboy games.

Also bought a bunch of, well,... :pirate: Famicom games from a "source"  :D

You all realize that Karma is probably gonna come kick my butt in my sleep, and I won't find so much as a Combat cart for the rest of the year.

Thanks, I would have been happier if they had't written the price in black marker on the label but what can you do.  It's a double edge sword, if they knew they were worth more they might take better care of them, but then they would charge more!!

ugh. you may be able to clean that off with Goo Gone without messing up the label, or at least fade it a bit.

most of the thrifts around here use grease pencils to price stuff. that comes off pretty easy.

I didn't get a chance to try the Goo Gone yet.  I have found the shiny labels cleanup much better than this type but I will give it a go.  The place I go most of the time uses a grease pencil and your right those are usually no problem.

Went to Goodwill today and got a 1st-Party Sega Saturn steering wheel for $4.  It didn't have the pedals, but I have no idea if it even had pedals in the first place.

The attached picture is of the wheel, so if any of you recognize it and know that it came with pedals, please let me know.

Also, I don't have any games to play it with, so if any of you know of any good Saturn racing games that work with a steering wheel, I would love to know.  Thanks!

I have that one too. I don't believe it came with pedals. Even if it did you don't need them, it works fine using the buttons on the steering wheel.

all I managed to find today was Game Boy stuff. for $25 bucks I got:

fuschia Game Boy Color
yellow Game Boy
Billy Bob's Huntin' & Fishiin'

I finally found a Dreamcast, now I just hope it works.  Found it in a local thrift store for $14 so the price was right.   I already have all the cables and controllers at home so I should be set.

Also found my first Captain Power - Future Force Training: Skill Level 1 for 99 cents and a large stuffed pokemon character of some kind for 79 cents

I picked up an interesting game yesterday. It's called Voyager and it's made by TI.  It a headset that takes cartridges.  I haven't tried it out but it looks like you interact with it by talking into a microphone.  I got it boxed with two cartridges (Space and Dinosaurs) for $3.

Here's one listed on ebay to show what it looks like:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5973709431

Just had my first Garage Sale find of the season.  I picked up a TI99 Expansion unit, 18 game cartridges w/ Manual & 6 extra manuals all for $40.  That makes me a happy camper.  I have been looking for an expansion unit for a while, it would have cost me that much in shipping if I got one on ebay.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on May 07, 2005, 11:46:27 AM
that Voyager thing is an interesting looking gadget. let's hear about it once you test it.

today was pretty uneventful but I did find a few small things.

Halo strategy guide - $3
Legend of Zelda kids book - 20 cents
Mia Hamm Soccer and Michael Vick Football LCD handhelds - 50 cents
Computer Warriors VHS, sealed - $1

my daughter made out like a bandit though, she came home with 13 new books and another Scooby Doo video

I had a nice little weekend.  Nothing outstanding, but I got a lot of little stuff.  First off I got 9 or so of those little sonic and ESPN sports handhelds that McDonalds was giving out a while ago for 10 cents a piece.  I also got 3 mario dolls, and two Mario Kart Advanced toys that Wendys was giving out fot a while for 10 cents a piece.  

I went to a huge garage sale that was actually more like a flea market and picked up:
Gargoyles Night Flight Tiger Handheld
Ultima Exodus - NES loose
Heroes of the Lance - NES loose
Golden Axe - Genesis complete
Pokemon Yellow - loose
WWF Attitude - GBC loose
Darkstone - PSX complete
Zap! - a coleco handheld

I also got three 80's metal Tapes that were $1 a piece:
Lynch Mob - Wicked Sensation
Lynch Mob - Lynch Mob
Anthrax - Persistence of Time

All of this for a little under $13.  I listened to the tapes while I was playing the handhelds I got, and when my girlfriend came home, the only thing she could do was shake her head as she muttered "you dork" under her breath.  Quiet honey, not while Lynch Mob is on.

heh heh, may be time to upgrade huh?

as you've no doubt noticed that 8600 has AV jacks on the back. there should be a program on it called Apple Video Player that will allow you to do screen shots.

I saw that, I don't know if the thing is functional but it was $10 including a 17" Apple monitor and keyboard, so I figured it was worth the risk!!

A stop on the way home yelded Dreamcast system for $3, my second in a week :o

If it does it's a nice little machine. check out that Apple Video Player too. it's what I used to do several of the screenshots in our database, including the Sega Pico. there's no option to use an emulator for that one.

Thanks, I almost missed it because it was sitting on a shelf with some candles and picture frames.  I just happened to spot the Mattel logo on the box when I was walking by.  Don't know if it works, it takes some of those hearing aid batteries and I don't have that size.

I got an O^2 at a tagsale with manual and what i assume to be all the wiring.
It came with War of Nerves, KC Munchkin, Football, Speedway/SpinOut/Cryptologic.

Cost 2 bucks. Thanks mom for stopping at a random tagsale :)

I have to say also that the O^2 games have possibly the coolest boxes i have ever seen. I want to get more of these games soley for the box designs.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on May 21, 2005, 05:37:10 PM
very nice! KC Munchkin is one of the few games for that system that is still fun to play. and I agree, the Odyssey 2 box art is some of the coolest.

for me todays hunt did not turn up too much. for 99 cents each I found:

SNES - NFL Football - loose
SNES - Super Play Action Football - complete
SNES - Madden 94 - complete
Genesis - NHL All-Star Hockey 95 - sealed

I also found one of those pirate NES things that look like an N64 controller for $1.50. It's missing the light and battery door. It had a power supply so I can play it. it has a cartridge port, not sure if there was a cart or not. There are 75,000 games in the menu, yes... 75,000. actually maybe 200 or so repeated over and over. I suspect they are not complete games but broken out as one level per menu selection.

Some of the games on it were Super MArio Bros., Duck Hunt, MArio Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., GAlaga, Space Invaders, COntra, Yie Ar Kung Fu, Karateka, Circus CHarlie and on and on.

A lot of the titles in the menu don't match the game. SOme of the games are in Japanese and many are missing the title on the title screen.

The second controller looks like a GEnesis controller. I haven't tested that but the main controller function pretty well. Pretty nifty for a buck fifty.

I picked up the following 4 games for Xbox (in video DVD boxes, no instructions):

Moto GP 1
Bloodrayne
Thief: Deadly Shadows
Tony Hawk Underground 1

Unfortunately, per the deal you have to buy exactly 4 to get them for the total $20 price. They won't let you purchase them at $5 each. I don't understand why not.

They all have the front covers, but I think only one of them has the back cover. Hollywood must have a separate printing contract for games, because the backs are formatted to only give you the basic game controls, a brief description, and the # of players in place of the original box art. The theory is that this would save them $ on instruction books, but if they have to buy the games anyway in order to rent them out, they should still have the books laying around somewhere! A weak policy.




Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on May 24, 2005, 12:31:57 PM
I'm sure I could find 4 games to meet the deal. The packaging issue would keep me away. I'm pretty picky out completeness for CD games. A missing manual is okay but I need to at least get complete box art.

Post by: phoenix1967 on May 25, 2005, 05:09:50 AM
I did ask. Unfortunately, they did not have them. But I've tested the games and they all work fine. I also asked a couple of friends that used to work for Hollywood and they both said that Hollywood buys games in bulk and that they only receive an instruction book for 1 of the copies. This only applies to the video store, though, I'll have to check to see if a GameCrazy might have them and if they'd be generous enough to provide copies if I show them my receipt. It's worth a try.

If that doesn't work, I guess I'll just have to keep an eye out for the manuals elsewhere.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Sauza12 on May 25, 2005, 07:05:57 AM
You might want to try going to the manufactures website.  Sometimes they have replacement manuals and cover inserts for a few dollars.  I know that Atlus does that.


But anyways, back to finds.  What is the best find you can have when you are trying to save money?  That's right free stuff!  My little sisters boyfriend gave all of this to me for free (I think I've done something to terrify this guy.  He has been acting strange around me lately)

Tony Hawk 3 (PS2)
Twisted Metal:  Black (PS2)
WWF Smackdown:  Just Bring It (PS2)
and a loose Genesis model 1

After that I went to 2 thrift shops and a pawn shop and got the following. At the thrifts I got 3 CIB CD-i games and a Myst boardgame. At the pawn shop I got a 2600 with 85+ games, 2 CIB Geneis games and 3 Intelli games.

Some of the rarer 2600 games are Taz and Gremlins with the manual. Out i the 85 games i needed only 5 of them.

Nice finds, everyone.  I'd be especially pumped about Zaxxon's Motherbase and the Sega CD games tholly got.  I have the box for Consulting Detective but no game, if I remember right.  No idea how the box survived but not the game (got it at a yard sale of all places).

@bum-man - When you say that you found books based on Roller Coaster Tycoon, do you mean that they are fictional novels?!  If so, that truly is amazing.  I might have to find some and buy them for TraderJake.  He has an unhealthy and rather suspicious obsession with those games.

Yeah they are kids fiction books, I left them in the car but I think the one was number 3 and the other had no number (I would guess it to be 1).  So I need at least one more to complete my set :-/

FYI  I am hanging on the the T&T and NP mags for now, if I end up dumping them you guys will be the first to know.

Went to Blockbuster and got "Pokemon: For Ho-Oh The Bells Toll!" and "Pokemon: Johto Photo Finish" GBA Videos for $13.  This is the price I've been looking for for these things.  $20 was way too high of a starting price for something like this.

It is from a XBox retail site. You take quizes earn points to buy things then just pay for shipping and handling.  Yopu cn sign up for the site if you work at a retail place that sells Microsoft stuff.

I believe I have an extra translucent purple one if you'd like to trade. It's got some minor scratches on the screen but functions perfectly fine.

Well, these aren't exactly finds from the "wild", but I found some Dreamcast stuff that I totally forgot about, hidden in my closet.  Apparently I sent Sega some sort of letter right after or before the launch of the Dreamcast, and they sent me a letter back with a pretty cool poster and a bunch of postcards featuring the circular Dreamcast logo in odd places (eyes, storm, brain, etc).  I also found a new & boxed official Sega Dreamcast carrying case for the system/controllers/games, another new & boxed official Sega Dreamcast carrying case for games, and a Sega Dreamcast t-shirt still sealed in plastic.  Always nice to stumble upon forgotten goodies ;)

Anyway, all of this stuff will be added to my trade list :)

It doesn't say the size anywhere.  Since it's still sealed I can't check it either, but from looking at the collar I'd assume it's a size M or L at most.

Yes but if you check out eBay similair items turn up quite often.
It should be worth moer than a retail shirt but you may or may not get more for it.
It really just depends on if you are lucky and someone realy wants it and thinks it will be worth it.
Atleast thats the way it seemed to me.
I could be wrong though just my $.02

I love Illusion of Gaia...even though I'm major stuck on the second boss.  :-/

Anyone got any tips?  It's the flying red bird thing that shoots blue fireballs (I think...it's been a while since I've played it), if anyone's familiar with this game.

@ Tholly: That SNES is way prettier than mine (By which I mean it doesn't have that nasty off-yellow color.).  Does it work?  If so, good find!

Been kinda MIA from the boards lately (I got a new job, my wife got a new job, selling our house, buying a new house, moving 250+ miles...that sorta thing), but found enough time to cruise into an EB Games store near where I'll be living.

Got there just in time to see a lady bring in her soon-to-be ex-husband's large video game collection for cash.  I thought for a minute "damn, that's harsh."  Then I realized "gee, sucks to be him" and promptly bought (all complete SNES games):

Adventures of Dr. Franken - $1.50
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - $0.80
Magic Sword - $1.50
Actraiser 2 - $2.40
Skulljager - $1.50

They were still pricing his Dreamcast and NES games when I left.  I'll be going back tomorrow for sure and picking up what the EB employees don't nab.

At an Indiana-only video game store called Mcvan's.  They have a thing where you can trade in one game for another of equal value and only pay a small trade fee, so I traded in a game that a friend gave me and got R-Type Final for $5.

true, but loose games are usually cheaper and you can always buy them again when you find them complete. then you at least get to play them. it does take up extra space but when you do find that complete copy you've got something else to toss in the trade bin.

Pinball Illusions
Global Effect

Post by: bum-man on July 26, 2005, 07:21:16 AM
I figured based on sheer volume I couldn't go wrong.  It works out to be like $5 for the console and $2.50 per game.

I have been doing a little research and it looks like I should be able to rework another P/S to run this and maybe rewire a Genesis controller to work with it.  It also appears that Commodore didn't sell many of these in the States and it was a last ditch effort to make a profit that failed before they went under.

Skies of Arcadia ($10)
NBA Hoopz ($3)

One of the EB's by my work still has a bunch of Dreamcast games, but some of the prices seem kind of high.  I'm probably going to stop by there either tomorrow or Saturday to pick up a few games.  If nothing else they have Alien Front Online with the Cardboard box for $17.  A little more than I wanted to spend, but I can't find it anywhere else (except Ebay I'm sure).


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on July 28, 2005, 06:49:44 AM
$17? ugh! I got that one at Media Play a few years ago for $5 when they were blowing out all their Dreamcast stuff.  I believe it also came with a microphone.

I wish I had more disposable income when the DC was dying. I'd have loads of trade bait right now.

Well, my luck seems to be holding steady for the moment, but I have a sinking feeling that it may be going south soon.  Got a silver TI-99/4A with box, all hook-ups, a Facemaker cart., and a Speech Synthesizer, all for $5 at a local flea market.  No idea if it works yet.

On the inside of the box, in brown magic marker is written "Billy's Box" and what looks like a 4-eyed mutant lion's face drawn on the inside lid.  Maybe it's a mutant 4-eyed sun, or maybe Billy was a budding Surrealism artist..this thing also has 3 mouths.

Or maybe Billy was just some moron that didn't bother taking care of his crap when he was younger.  Never heard of "paper," Billy?  Thanks, punk.  :laugh:

My Goodwill never has stuff that cheap.  NES games are usually $1.99 or so around here...kinda sucks.

I was hesitated to ask the price since they were in the showcase and last week I went in they had Pinball (NES) Loose for $5, Also I think the Girl behind the counter liked me.

I just got Super Play Action Football for the SNES for 49 cents. And at Game Crazy of all places.

The Goodwill around here sells it's NES games for a flat rate of $5, most of them are Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt, it sucks.

I added a few things to the collection Friday and Saturday.

PS1 - Bottom of the 9th, long box - complete - 99 cents

Xbox - Dead to Rights, new - $5
Xbox - Star Wars Battlefront, complete - $18

I found a couple of strategy guides published by the Consumer Guide, one for NES one for SNES - 40 cents each

a cool electronic/board game by Radica called 3D Tetris Tower. It's got lights and sounds but the Tetris pieces are actually plastic pieces that you drop in yourself like COnnect Four. the electronic base tells you which piece to place, has a timer and sensors to know when it's been placed in the board. pretty nifty - complete - $3

and non-gaming. I found E.T. on Laserdisc - $5

I found quite a bit over the course of the weekend.

I found a Sega Pico with all hook ups and the following games for $20 total at a garage sale(all games are loose):

A Year at Pooh Corner
101 Dalmations:  Math Antics
Lion King:  Adventure at Pride Rock
Mickey's blast into the past
Pocahontas Riverbend Adventures (cover of book missing)
Richard Scarry's Huckle and Lowly's Busiest Day Ever
Smart Alex and Alice:  Curios Kids
Tails and the Music Maker (cover of book missing)

I found all of these at various garage sales too:

Mattel electronic football (1978 version) $0.25
Pokemon Snap strategy guide $2
Hey You Pikachu promo video $1
Jet Force Gemini promo video $1
Goosebumps handheld $1

I found NHL '94 and NBA Live '95 for Genesis both CIB for $2 apiece at a thrift store

Finally today I hit the TRU 50% off sale and picked up Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Onimusha 3 for just over $26.

I could've bought alot more too.  I found two Genesis, one with 5 games and one with about 20 games (and four controllers and a game organizer) for 20 and 25 bucks respectively, as well as a brand new in box teal Gameboy Color.  I didn't get either of the Genesis because I had most of the games, the were 99% sports and they were all loose.  I didn't get the Gameboy because they wanted $30 for it and I couldn't rationalize spending that much when I have 10 more at home.

Well, I went to a thrift store here in Belgium for the first time yesterday.  They're called 'kringloop' stores, and I was always told that they only deal with furniture.  Went there to donate some furniture yesterday and the store turned out to be like a normal thrift store, so I guess I'll be checking these stores more often ;)  

I was in a bit of a hurry - found just one computer game for 1.50 euro MIB, so I didn't even look at the title, only the specs to see if it was retro.  Turns out to be The Sacred Mirror of Kofun, an old adventure game, and the special edition that contains a VHS tape while at it.  I checked the web and only found one place selling the special edition w/VHS, new @ $149.99...my copy is practically new/unused, so I guess I got a sweet deal here :)

Now I just hope that all my kringloop finds will be as good as my first ;)

I've got a Goosebumps handheld that looks almost like that one. where yours says "Reading is a Scream" mine has a skeleton I believe.

what's the gameplay? for an LCD handheld I was pleasantly surprised with the gameplay on mine. It's a shooter but you also have to pick up your re-loads from a character who randomly pops on screen.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Izret101 on August 18, 2005, 11:43:44 AM
I know here were a few different goosebumps ones.
I have yet to find any that have the interchangable carts like mine.

@ Den The shooting one you have wouldn't happen to be with Slappy(i believe his name was) the dummy/ventriloquist doll?
I am pretty sure that was one of the other ones i had and it would talk.

My mom threw mine out because it would start in the middle of the night and be talking and scare the shit outta her. Creepy handheld...

On another note i don't know how we could add these to the database AFAIK none of them had any titles on the game. They all just said Goosebumps across the top.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on August 18, 2005, 12:59:53 PM
@Iz - not sure, it's been awhile since I've seen it. I suppose I could dig it out.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Sauza12 on August 19, 2005, 09:56:50 AM
The one that I have pictured above has the same gameplay as Den's.  It is pretty impressive for one of these types of handhelds.  I can't tell if it is supposed to be a dummy, but he shoots spiders at you.

while my wife was deployed to iraq, she had purchased a xbox and a couple games to help pass her off time. when her stuff got here to us in new york, the xbox....dvd controller....2 controllers....disc 2 of nip tuck was in the console and a few other items were missing. well, the US military are very good at replacing any damaged or missing goods found while moving.

yesterday we finally got the replacement check in and went straight to the game stores! we picked up our new xbox & 12 games! target was having a sale and we picked up goldeneye rogue agent, links 2004, medal of honor: rise of the sun, and 3 Platinum Hits which were return to wolfenstein, G.R.: island thunder & 007: everything or nothing all for 4.98 each. so if you get a chance, stop by target to see what deals they have.

we then headed down to game stop and picked up myst IV brand new and Myst III,Sega Gt/Jet set radio future, outlaw golf: holiday golf & alias all used. we also picked up a few sports games too.

i must say that i am starting to like the xbox. now i need to pick up the metal slug games! :)

yup a fine trade. and it was cool meeting you Scott.

picked up Dragon Ball Z Taiketsu for the GBA on clearance at Target for $3.74 today.

and I'm guessing the cartoon came before the game which was based on a toy so I don't know if it counts as video game related but I found a tape of Skeleton Warriors also.

99 cents.

This weekend I bought a 4-switch woody 2600 (just with 1 joystick) for a dollar.  I also paid $2 for four 5200 games, all commons I think, Dig Dug, Pac Man, Super Breakout, and Centipede. Just the carts but you cant beat paying 2 bucks for those games.

Nice finds!!

I never see any Atari stuff and if i do it is insanle priced. Well the systems anyways.

Thanks. My brother and I go to a local flea market every weekend and I usually get some good deals. Like a few weeks ago I got a box with a colecovision with vcs adaptor and an atari 5200 4-port with two controllers and a trackball controller. I paid 5 bucks.  It seems that so many people (at least in my area) are focusing on 8 bit systems and up and almost give away anything that was before the NES.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Sauza12 on August 31, 2005, 05:21:01 AM
Yeah, the problem with living in this area is that there are quite a few big collectors around here, and several dozen smaller collectors which all seem to be on the look out for pre-NES stuff.  It can be tough to find atari and Colecovision stuff for cheap.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on August 31, 2005, 08:48:48 AM
though if you think about it, with as old as that stuff is it's amazing that it turns up at all.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: CatchFiveBats on August 31, 2005, 04:28:14 PM
I got the following CIB for a total of $50 at Goodwill today:

Game Boy
Game Boy Rechargeable Battery Pack/AC Adapter
Golf (Game Boy)
Super Mario Land (Game Boy)

The only problems were that the Game Boy was missing Tetris (but I had a copy of that) and the battery was missing a cord (but I had an extra), so there really weren't any problems at all.

Very cool.
I naver see Gameboy games CIB.
Hardly ever see them with a box or manual actually.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on September 01, 2005, 04:39:07 AM
you don't see many Gameboy games at all. I have found a few Gameboy Color games CIB.

I do see tons of Gameboy's though and pockets. The Gameboy colors are starting to turn up a bit too. a lot of times they are overpriced or missing the battery door though.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Izret101 on September 01, 2005, 09:34:19 AM
Oh no i see hundreds and hundreds of Gameboy/GBC games they are always cart only.

I see various gameboy systems but those never get bought so once a store gets one they have the same one sitting on their shelves for a LONG time.

I see tons of GBCs too. Not too many GBP or GBs.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on September 01, 2005, 12:36:02 PM
hundreds of Gameboy games? around here not even the Gamestops or EB's have that many original Gameboy games. at thrifts it's a rare occurence for one to turn up.

found 8 games today.

Genesis - World Championship Soccer II w/box - $4

SNES - Super Mario All-Stars & Super Mario World w/manual - $3
Shanghai II Dragon's Eye w/manual - $3

Saturn - Sega Rally Championship, Virtua Cop 2, Virtua Fighter, Virtua Fighter Remix, Sega Screams Vol. 1 - all complete - $2 each

and another stuffed Mario doll. this one is bigger, 12" at least - $2


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: m3talst0rm on September 04, 2005, 10:44:32 AM
Nice scores...especially the Saturn games.  
I got my first cib NES games today.  For $2.50 each I got Super Sprint (my first unlicensed game!), Elevator Action, The Legend of Kage, and Battletoads.
Like I said in my profile, I am pretty new to video game collecting so I don't really know how hard it is to find these out at flea markets and yard sales and what condition they are usually found in.  All I ever seem to find are loose carts.  These games however, seem almost brand new.  All of them have the foam inserts and all but battletoads have a warranty card.  Everything seems to be there.  


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Izret101 on September 04, 2005, 12:59:56 PM
IMO it is fairly hard to find NES games CIB and in nice condition.
I got lucky and found out that a local shop had a fairly large amount in their basement but even most of the stuff they have is damagaed, not really CIB or a duplicate common title.

Congrats on the finds.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on September 04, 2005, 02:25:33 PM
agreed. I'd say any of the games that came packaged in cardboard are going to be tough to find CIB or even with just the box.

most people don't give a second thought to tossing a cardboard box. what I am surprised by is loose CD games or games for the Genesis ot Master System. I don't get tossing those cases.

How some people can be so careless is beyond me.  It's so frustrating when you're digging through the Playstation or Dreamcast games at EBGames and find the game you're looking for, only to discover that it has no instructions.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on September 05, 2005, 03:35:36 PM
yesterday I went to a dollar store and theyhas some PC games. I got one called Dirt Bike Racing and 2 mini CD's by a company callled X3D, one is called Turbo Tunes and the other AxySnake. I believe Nep found some of these a while back.

also went to Dollar General and got another of those plug and plays, this one by Coleco. it's got all sports games on it. it was $8 bucks.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: CatchFiveBats on September 05, 2005, 03:57:09 PM
I saw that Coleco one at Dollar General on Thursday of last week.  I would have bought it, but it didn't really interest me that much.

Found a Genesis Model 3 w/2 controllers & all hookups as well as the following games (all loose) for $12 at a garage sale this weekend:

The Adventures of Mighty Max
Arcade Classics
Batman Returns
Buck Rogers
Cyberball
Frogger
John Madden Football
The Lion King
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
Rocket Knight Adventures
Taz In Escape From Mars

I believe Arcade Classics is an R5 too.

Not bad games though :)

I had a few good finds today at the local thrifts.  

Tiger Handheld Home Alone 2, loose for 99 cents
Hasbro Handheld Tonka Constructions, loose for $1.48
Radica Handheld Mouse Basketball, loose for $198
Radio Shack Computerized Arcade,  CIB for $1.99
Playstation Underground Jampack Summer 2k, CIB for $1.48
And a few DOS games on 5-1/4" floppies all CIB, Space Quest, Space Quest II, Future War. for $1.49 each

The DOS games look mint and I believe have everything they came with including comic books and one even came with a pink highlighter (no clue why, I'll have to read the docs?)  but I really like the Mouse Basketball, it's got an LCD screen and a mouseball on the bottom, so you have to move the game on a table to play and then press down to shoot.  I love game that are different like that.

I played that yesterday.  It would help a lot if I had an instruction booklet of some type...

@Bum-Man: I remember when Playstation Underground was first announced.  I wanted to subscribe so bad because I thought it was like some kind of secret society where you got to find out stuff that no one else knew.  I still have yet to possess one of those demos.

Not a true find in the wild...but while looking around in the cellar and attic I found some stuff that I thought was lost during the move from the US to Belgium....hundreds of plastic NES cases (game cases, video rental cases, etc...at least a hundred with partial boxes in them (still good for scans ;))....unfortunately the partial boxes seem to have slight mold on them now...not sure how bad it is just yet...I also found loads and loads of NES dust covers and a bunch of Atari 5200 & Atari XE games :)

I'm gonna start looking through them later on and maybe get a few of the partial boxes scanned (just one side and the flaps are cut off, so front and back scans shouldnt be affected much if at all)....

Nice find.  When my best buy store had the old display taken out and replaced with a DS display, they gave me the old gba display, that exact one.  They kept the system but that's it.  Of course, mine had the shitty pokemon emerald display in it.....the metroid fusion one was taken out about a month beforehand.

Den also gave me a copy of Vic Avengers for Vic-20, which is bathed in Space invadery glory.  Thanks Den!

I also went to a thrift store and a few garage sales on Saturday and got a McDonalds Spyro toy for $1 and a bare bones Atari 800XL for $6.  

I also bought a copy of Jacobs Ladder on VHS for $3.  And some razor blades.  And a Pepsi.  I lost a dime.

hey everyone i need some advice on what i saw today and i don't know if they are worth anything so i need your opinion on it. well i went in to this store today and i found 3 intellivision games boxed 2 of them were tron games they were both diffrent tron games and the other one i can't remember for 2 bucks each. would those be good to pick up since i don't have a intellivision system and i don't know much about that system.
plus i also saw a sega master system with the hook-ups and 2 controllers for 40 bucks i really want to start collecting the games on that system so is that a good price for one. also are those games hard to find for the sega master system. when ever i go looking i never see any games for that system.
one last thing i also saw a boxed doom for the 32x for 5 bucks is that a rare game for that or not.
any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks everyone.

Boxed Intelli games for 2 bucks each is a good deal I think. The Tron games arnt rare but they are good games.

The SMS system is high I think. The games are kinda hard to find in the wild but easy on the web. There are a couple games that are hard to get.

Doom is not rare but good for 5 bucks. Plus Doom is a fun game.

Okay, so I've been complaining about how my Goodwill never has any games, right?  Well, I regret saying that now, because somebody turned in at least 100 games, probably more, for various systems (NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, Commodore 64 [cassettes and carts], and some other systems), and I'm going insane.  I went today and picked up Gauntlet IV for Genesis and Uniracers for SNES (both CIB), but I only had $40 to begin with, and I bought 2 junior bacon cheeseburgers at Wendy's before going to Goodwill, so I've only got around $25 left.  I think I'm going to go pick up Super Mario All-Stars now.

Picked up several NES games this weekend. Most were loose , but they were needed to make complete games out of box/manual combos I had ;)

Best game found was Godzilla 2 . I paid more than I normally would for it (19 dollars) but I havent see it around in some time. And it doesnt pop up on ebay all that often.

Also scored Solitare with a manual for the NES. I have a minty box , so there is yet another CIB game  |D

Today I got 3 systems and some games from my grandparents, they had them stored away and I remember playing them as a kid so I asked about them...

Channel F with a couple of games

Coleco Gemini with donkey kong, mouse trap, and some others

and a Arcadia-2001

I don't have anything to connect them to the tv, so I dunno if they work yet or not

nless you have an old UHF/VHF tv your going to have to buy or find a convertor for them.
Example:

http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/GE-Quick-Connect-Transformer-AV23201-/sem/rpsm/oid/89647/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do

I am pretty sure if you buy an antenna it comes with it. So if you have ever had to buy an atenna for your TV you should have one around somewhere.

Nice, a hat trick of systems!!  And they are three good ones, I have never run into any of them in the wild.  :(  But that won't stop me from looking!!

Good luck, I hope they all work.  Any games with the Arcadia?  And I am guessing that we don't have images of any Channel F games, so if you have a scanner we'd love the submissions.

They didn't have any Arcadia games with it, I know I remember they had 2 /r 3 a long time ago, but maybe they were lost.  I know they had a Battle Tank game but who knows where its at now.  The Channel F game boxes are very beatup, (the games are #1, 4, 11, 12, 16) but still readable.  My girlfriend has a scanner so If you guys would like them I could get around to scanning all of those things.  Also the Arcadia is in the box with instuctions. Channel F had manuals and they are in good shape.

Scanning them would be awesome. All we need are scans at 150dpi. As a general rule, all scans should be 450 pixels on the SHORT SIDE.  Thus, the other dimension will be greater than 450 pixels.  Just set the short side (height of a Genesis cart, width of an NES box, height of a CD case, etc) to 450 pixels and let your photo editor adjust the other side to scale.

Also if you want to get trade or sell taht Arcadia let me know.

Just went to 4 thrifts nearby (actually found two more thrifts while trying to find a different one)....found absolutely nothing in the first 3, but in the fourth one I found the following for exactly 10 euros:

NES console w/controller and ripped AC adapter inside a Sega Master System II box
Sonic the Hedgehog CIB for Sega Mega Drive
Power Cartridge for Commodore 64
MS Text CIB for MSX
some game for MSX CIB
2 original MSX controllers, one boxed
QuickJoy Supercharger inside QuickShot Python 1M box

Most of it is going in the trade bin :)

yard sales are over now so my hunting is done til next spring..ebay sellers have taken over the flea markets..we have one guy that gets there before anyone and runs up to every car as they pull in asking for video games..guess the good old collecting days are gone and its become a livelyhood for some.

hi everyone well today while i was messing around in my basment and i forgot that i had this old game/computer system called the commodore VIC-20 in box with guide and 6 cassettes with i guess a cassette player. plus with 12 games cosmic cruncher, radar ratrace, gorf, pirates cove, omega race, mole attack, raid on fort knox, sargon 2 chess, alphabet zoo, avenger, visible solar system, home babysitter. the system is complete with everything it needs. i don't know much about this system a little before my time. i wanted to ask everyone for some help i'm wanting to know if this system is rare and are the games hard to find? i was surprised to see that there are over a hundred games for it. thanks for any info anyone might have.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on September 28, 2005, 05:05:15 AM
the VIC-20 is not a rare system. some of the games for it are hard to find. you've got some good ones in that list. Gorf, Omega Race, Vic Avenger. Mole Attack is pretty funny too.

do you have controllers for it? the Vic-20 can use Atari 2600 controllers.

hook that puppy up. I think you'll enjoy it.

I received a whole load of accessories in the mail today, among them a brand new Beeshu Gizmo arcade stick!  I bought the Gizmo together with a sealed Chimera 2 joystick from someone in England, and I must say I haven't been this satisfied with a purchase in a very long time - the Beeshu Gizmo is complete in superb new condition (and was packaged to keep it this way)...definitely another personal holy grail for me!  :)

I now also have four brand new Cheetah CharacterStick joysticks for sale:  Batman Returns, Alien 3, Bart Simpson, and Terminator.  If anyone is interested in any of those, let me know.

I picked up Alien Hominid for GC.
Haven't played yet.
Hopefully it is as good as i heard it was supposed to be.
I have been getting huge let downs lately.

I was pretty irritated though that the only version i saw at the dozen or so stores i was at today was a GCN version.

That game is a lot of fun multiplayer.  I don't really know about single player, though.

Eh nothing really i thought there was an Xbox version out there to but i couldn't find any info on their official site about it being released. Granted all i did was check the store section...

In anycase how many players is this game actually for?
It says 1-4 on the box but ithere are options for only 1 and/or 2 player game.

Well, this wasn't a find in the wild, but it sure as hell was a find on the internet:

http://www.laretrotienda.com/fotos/consolas/Nasa_remotecontrol_1.JPG

and the best part:

http://www.laretrotienda.com/fotos/juegos_consola/Nesclon_AventuraSubmarina.JPG

http://www.laretrotienda.com/fotos/juegos_consola/Nesclon_correBenny.JPG

http://www.laretrotienda.com/fotos/juegos_consola/Nesclon_SkateBoy.JPG

http://www.laretrotienda.com/fotos/juegos_consola/Nesclon_bookyman.JPG

All for 42 euros shipped.  I received the package in the mail today, and three of the four games have not yet been documented anywhere on the internet (the fourth one, Bookyman, is known from the Caltron/Myriad 6-in-1).  They are developed by Mega Soft/NTDEC/Caltron which is likely all the same company anyway.  There's a thread about these on DP:  http://www.digitpress.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=70582

The games are actually fun to play as well, unlike many of the other unlicensed NES games out there.  I'll start a thread in the video game forum later on with some screenshots of the games.

Also finally managed to get ahold of a nice MIB QuickJoy Footpedal accessory from a Dutch advertisement website for 13 euro shipped...been looking for this one for a few months now!  This means I now have a complete set of QuickJoy accessories (with the exception of one box variant ;))!

It's hard to tell in that photo but if it says Classic Baseball under the buttons it's the re-release you have.

I have the Crash and Mario pinbal's too. I think there is also a Donkey Kong one.

the baseball re-release plays pretty damn close to the original. the re-releases for Football and Football II are kinda weak. they used a backlit LCD instead of LED's. difficult to see and damn near impossble to play in the dark.

yesterday I found a couple of loose Gameboy games for $1.91 each.

Gameboy Color - Matchbox Rescue Patrol
Gameboy - Tamagotchi


Title: Re: the small score's thread

So yea , basically I got a bunch of stuff in.
Either a loose game or cart which mad the following complete :

NES
Demon Sword
Flight of the Intruder
Golf Power
Magic of Scheherazade
Road Blasters
Superman
Werewolf
Wheel of Fortune Jr. Edition
Xexyl


I also made box / manual combos out of the following :

NES

AD&D Dragon Strike
Destiny of an Emperor
Thunderbirds
(all fairly easy games to get)

12" Talking Mario Doll, still in the package - $1.99
New box of 5 NES plastic storage cases - $1.99
6" Gold colored plastic circle with an image of Sonic on it, it has a button you can press to hear Sonic talk (not sure what this is, any help?) - $1.00

how old are they? since you're recording how abot some pictures? I love seeing that kind of stuff.

I didn't notice a date on either.  I can snap a photo and post that as well.  Thanks for the offer on the Tetris Game, I haven't had a chance to see if anything was missing yet, I just picked that up today at lunch.

I've only played my copy of Magic Pengel for about 30-45 minutes, but so far it seems to be pretty watered down.  I'm hoping that it gets a little more challenging eventually, because if it doesn't, that is one hella boring game.  Still, it's a neat idea.

"Ready to role champ, let's go"

There is no date on it, no markings or words of any kind as a matter of fact.  Still no clue what it is or where it's from.

Many 2600 games come in multiple label variations, the one you picked up is the Picture label, the RFGen photo is the Text label.  The 2600 is one of the worst system for label variations, I think some games were released with 5 or 6 different labels.  I believe the plan is to someday add at least the main variation types to the database here (simular to how "Greatest Hits" are for Playstation) but that work has not been started yet.

Looks like I am missing a few pieces from this game, the back of the box says 116 blocks, I only have 114, broken down like this:

15 Blocks
20 T-Bars
16 Beams
19 L-Blocks
17 Backwards L-Blocks
14 Zigs
13 Zags

It also doesn't have the instructions with it and there is no packaging inside the box (not sure if there is supose to be or not), just the game boards, their holders and the box of blocks.


Title: Re: the small score's thread

Post by: den68 on October 08, 2005, 04:04:53 PM
okay... I just went through both my Tetris games and counted all the blocks. it seems my incomplete set is only missing one purple L block. both have instructions.

the blocks break out like this: (I made a chart while counting)

15 Blocks - 2 red, 3 purple, 3 yellow, 3 blue, 4 green
20 T-Bars - 4 of each
16 Beams - 4 red, 4 purple, 2 yellow, 2 blue, 4 green
19 L-Blocks - 4 red, 5 purple, 4 yellow, 3 blue, 3 green
18 Backwards L-Blocks - 3 red, 3 purple, 3 yellow, 6 blue, 3 green
15 Zigs - 5 red, 2 purple, 3 yellow, 3 blue, 2 green
13 Zags - 2 red, 3 purple, 3 yellow, 3 blue, 2 green

so it would appear you are missing one backwards L block and one zig. you can use this handy dandy chart to determine which colors.

I picked up a padded black case with the SegaNet logo on it in white.  It's about 6" by 27".  It's got two straps so it looks like you could carry it like a long skinny backpack.  Another mystery for me, anyone have a clue as to what this is for?  My guess would be it's to hold the Dreamcast keyboard and a few other items.  In any event I only paid 49 cents.

Well I went with my girlfriend to rent a movie today, and I saw a box of n64 and other games, and asked if they were for sale or what.  She said yeah, they are only 1.50 a piece.  So I picked out
N64:
Super Mario 64
Mario Kart 64
Wave Racer 64
1080 snowboarding

SNES:
Act Raiser
American Gladiators

She couldnt find the carts (except for Act Raiser), so Im going back later to see if she couldnt find them anywhere else, I'm still going to buy the boxes no matter what though.

Some of the games she did find were Act Raiser for SNES(just cart and box) and Road Rash for PSX (no box or manual)

Post by: yap on October 09, 2005, 12:10:42 PM
Act Raiser for SNES usually goes for a decent price with box on ebay.  Too bad she didn't have the chart and manual.  Great game though.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: johno590 on October 09, 2005, 06:40:30 PM
I went back to the video place and she still couldnt find the carts, so I got the boxes for free.

If anyone has any extra games and wants to sell them to me, they can :)

Post by: johno590 on October 10, 2005, 12:26:03 PM
Well, I got off work early today so I stopped by some more thrift stores.  Got 6 snes games for 20 dollars at one.  
Kawasaki
Family Fued
WWF Super Wrestlemanai
Mortal Kombat II
Best of the Best Championship Karate
Street Fighter II

then went to another and found a psx rca cable (which I needed)
and a NES system with 2 controllers, orange zapper... all for 5 dollars.  I haven't hooked it up yet, but if it works I'm going to sell it on ebay :)

UPDATE:  I just hooked up the NES and it works, but barely, lol the controllers are nawed up, looks like little kids were chewing on them, and its SUPER dirty, but hopefully I can clean it up.

Got in CIB copies of Paperboy 2 and Forgotten Worlds for the Genesis. Got them from http://www.collectorscardsandgames.com
That site is a great place to buy stuff from. Very helpful.

I think I am down to needing 36-38 Genesis games.

Looks like black marker on the Battletoads cart.

I would trade the Game Gear carts.

Got the Mega Drive games from a friend that picked them up at a local store.

The one games ia a train building game. I think it is funny that is was not released in the states because you build your train empire in the ststes.  :-/

Nice man!  At first I thought you wrote Robotrek, so I thought they made a sequel to that SNES RPG (which was pretty good btw), but I guess not ;)  Always nice to pick up limited edition sets for a good price though :)

heh heh the Aura Interactor. I have one of those and tested with Gunstar Heroes for the Genesis. the damn thing pretty much vibrated non-stop and it's lind of load.

neat idea though not the suttle effect to get fro the Dual Shock or Controller S.

I've been buying alot lately and I've honestly lost track.  At one of the EBs near me, they are having their Classic Sale again (all DC, NES, SNES, Genesis) are 50% off and they've marked most of their PS1 games down to about $2.  I bought about 30 different titles and have long since "filed" most of them away into my storage boxes, awaiting the completion of my Room of Doom remodel.

However, yesterday I picked up:

Goblin Commander (Xbox, GameStop) - $8
Pryzm (PS2, GameStop) - $5
Shadow Tower (PS) - Free (part of GameStop's Buy 2 Get 1 free promo)
Heavy Shreddin' (NES Loose, Goodwill $2)
Top Players' Tennis (NES Loose, Goodwill $2)
RBI Baseball 2 (NES Loose, Goodwill $2)
Deer Hunter (GBC Complete, EB $5)
Puzzle Bobble Mini (NGP, EB $3)
Pac-Man (NGP, EB $3)

Not too terribly bad.

I went to the Flea Market today and got a copy of Final Fight 2 and Battletoads/Double Dragon both for 9 dollars.  The guy didn't really want to sell them to me that cheap (He wanted 6 a piece) but that was all I had.

I also am supposed to be getting about 18 SNES boxes from 8bit on DP.

I haven't been doing much Thrift store shoping lately because I haven't been getting as much money lately... and I have sort of focused my collecting to just SNES stuff.

Nice!  I usually act like I only have a certain amount of money at flea markets so that I can get the price down ;)  works really well, too  |D

I received this joystick (pictured in the attached pic) in the mail today (bought it through an advertisement website in the netherlands)....extremely happy, as I didn't think I would be able to get this big sucker in this condition from within Europe!!  I now have almost every QuickShot accessory for NES CIB or in shrinkwrapped condition and most variations as well (18 in total)!  :)  I only need the following three:

QuickShot Sighting Scope QS-132
QuickShot Wizmaster Controller QS-118N
QuickShot Wireless Wizmaster Controller QS-118NR

and the following boxes (and any inserts):

QuickShot QS-126 Joypad (sold in plastic package, so boxed=new)
QuickShot Starfighter 1 QS-127 (this one's compatible with other systems as well)
QuickShot XXI ("fake trackball".) QS-121

So if anyone happens to have any of those for sale/trade, please let me know!  :)

It seems to be just left over stock from something they did in Japan
They are very cool though.
I got a yellow normal shaped one, and a green one with a brown spiky shell on top.

Dan got a clear flat/spread out one and a different spiky-shelled one. So that means i will end up with both of those in the near future.
My friend Chris should have got his in too today that means.
Hopefully he got different ones from us because i will get those in the future aswell :)

In a matter of fact those listed there are a box variant to the one that I just received, but international shipping for one of those won't make it worthwhile ;)

I finally found a copy of "the Wizard" yesterday. I found it a rental shop that was clearing out their VHS. the box is a bit sunbleached. never seen the movie before, I'll have to watch it soon.


I've been trying to find a copy of "The Wizard" for a long, long time.  You lucky bastard...

I also managed to snag The Wizard for a couple bucks on sale at a Kmart many years ago.  

I went to a thrift near my new university and got everything in the attached pic for only 2 euros, which is less than 2.50$!  I basically only had to pay for the MSX and all of its accessories & monitor, and the rest I got for free.   The coolest thing, though, would have to be the joystick pictured to the left of the monitor...unlike a normal joystick, this one has buttons for movement rather than a stick or a pad...I never even knew they made this type of joystick back in the day ;)

That joystick looks an awful lot like the ones issued with PSX's on release.  Still, it's strange that it would be with that system.

By the way, great deal!

Thanks, the PSX-lookalike joystick is actually for the NES...this one is unfortunately defective.  They were released by companies that create NES clones...the Mastergames controller as seen in the pic was included with some NES clones that happened to have normal NES controller plugs, and there is also one that was sold individually, without any hard packaging, with the FIAST logo...

As for other recent finds, I managed to get my hands on two Teqniche Power Pads for NES (both boxed) for 20 euro from a Dutch advertisement...a bit pricey for me, but glad to finally have the controller confirmed as the only time I've ever "seen" it was @ a Polish website w/front and back scans that could've been faked but obviously were not. :)

Holy goodness!  I got that Carmen Sandiego SNES game shortly after it came out for a baby tooth that I had a particularly difficult time with.  I could never get anywhere in that game...I ended up selling it before I started collecting.  As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure I still have the pack-in dictionary/encyclopedia somewhere.

I found a Leap Frog Leapster yesterday. It's an educational handheld system. These things are pretty new, I was surprised to see one in a thrift. I only paid $7 bucks for it. It's got a few minor scratches but functions perfectly. It had one cart with it, LEarning with LEap.

My daughter played with it for about 2 hours last night. I'll have to go out and see about getting some more carts.

He won't hook my brother up with a deal on one either. He said they where worth too much on EBay and my bro said ok. My bro said the kid is a starving college student. I said he should blackmail his ass and get 2 360's for 500. LOL

:)

Today I went to this huge indoor flea market nearby and got a load of good stuff for good prices :)  Totally unexpected, as this is the same flea market where I went exactly 6 months ago and found nothing but a cheap loose Famiclone.  Today I found the following:

Philips CDi player with all hookups, controller, CIB Light gun, about 10 games....3 euro

Sega MegaDrive, all hookups, one controller, one arcade stick, and four CIB games (including one Genesis game)...12,50 euro (these were all packaged as a present as well ;))

Philips Videopac G7400 with all hookups, 2 controllers, and with 7 games (6 CIB), mostly rare and valuable Videopac+ games...12,50 euro

NES Zinger joystick loose...2 euro

Super Mario World Game Chair 1993.....2,50 euro!!

11 NES games, about half complete, half loose...including some nice pal-exclusives....30 euro

Atari 2600 Gemini System + 18 or 19 games with many manuals + loose pong console....5 euro

MIB Commodore 64 Microsystem....7 euro

NES with all hookups, 2 controllers, zapper, and 7 loose games....15 euro

2 loose NES games and 2 complete games including Tecmo Cup Football Game (Spanish exclusive)....15 euro

Snake's Revenge loose...4 euro

and that's basically it I think...best flea market run I've had up to now, and this had to happen the first time that I decided to go by bus...so I ended up having to call a cab to get this shit to a safe spot ;)

Thanks guys!  I was pretty surprised myself to find so much gaming stuff at one flea market as most are pretty dry around here.  I also seemed to be the only one looking for this stuff as well, but that was probably because the night before the entire city was one big party to celebrate 11th of 11th (Carnaval celebration) so most ppl were most likely still sleeping ;)

3 boxed genesis games
Sonic
Hook
Animaniacs

and 1 loose game gear game

Don't know if I mentioned this before in the thread but a few weeks ago I got a Xbox HD Pak for about 50 cents!  I was very happy to say the least.

I had a pretty good weekend and didn't spend too much either.

on friday I hit Game Crazy to check out the 99 cent Game Gear games. They didn't have many but I got:

The Majors Pro Baseball
WWF Raw
Tom & Jerry The Movie
Kawasaki Super Bike
Home Alone
Asterix & the Great Rescue

all were 99 cents except the baseball game which was 50 cents. I hit anothe Game Crazy on Saturday and they didn't have anything.

from thrifts:

Playstation Underground vol. 2.3 - sealed - $3

N64 - Fifa 98, Mario Cart 64 - loose - $1.99 each

Genesis - Fire Shark - complete - $3

Saturn - Incredible Hulk: Pantheon Saga - complete - $2

NES - Tecmo Bowl, Tecmo Super Bowl - boxes and manuals - free! some kid buggered off with the carts, no biggie I already had both loose. I asked for the boxes and they gave them to me. now both games are complete. Tecmo Super Bowl even had a Tecmo catalog with it.

I also found an N64 cart storage case and the Jones Soda with the Metroid Prime Hunters label. The one I found was blue bubble gum flavor, nasty. I think it shall remain sealed.

it kind of makes up for not finding them till after somebody ripped off the games.

Picked up a couple of nice handhelds today at a thrift, Mattel's Championship Football and Championship Baseball.  Football was complete in the box, Baseball was in the original bubblewrap bag but the box was no where to be found (since there was no price on it my guess is the box was there but I couldn't find it).  They look to be two player variations of the old Mattel handhelds, kinda cool looking and both in nice shape.

It's a pretty lame system, but I was a big fan of Captain Power back in the day, so I'll buy for it.

I also just picked up:

Final Fantasy:  The Crystal Chronicles
Xenosaga:  Episode 2

I got both of them from the TRU sale for $10

It is cool, I would love to find one of the toys that let you play.  I believe they were like spaceships that you pointed at the TV screen and you could shoot and score points based on what was on the screen.  I have a few of the games but so far I haven't located any of the ships.

I think any complete vintage game for $3 is a good deal.  Even if you don't collect that system you may be able to use it in a trade. The 2600 does have lots of common carts but there are many more then ten that would be worth the dollar or two you may pay in a thrift.  AtariAge is one source of a rarity list (which does not relate directly to value of course!) You could start looking here:  http://www.atariage.com/software_list.html?SystemID=2600&searchCompanyID=ALL&searchRegion=N&searchTvFormat=ALL&searchRarity=ALL&searchType=NORMAL&orderBy=Rarity&orderByValue=Descending&recordsPerPage=100¤tPage=2 The ones marked H are homebrews but below that starts the 10, 9, 8, and some of the 7's.

I went a litlle nuts at Gamestop this weekend.  Hey, I've been poor for the last 3 months, so now that I actually have some money again I decided to treat myself.  All of the games are CIB:

Blood Omen 2 - PS2
Enter The Matrix - PS2
Fantavision - PS2
Mobile Light Force 2 - PS2
NCAA Final Four 2002 - PS2
Project Eden - PS2
Summoner - PS2
Shadow of Destiney (no instructions) - PS2
Pokemon Stadium - N64

I paid around $40 for around all of those games.
I also got Doom 3 from Circuit City Friday morning for $10.

Like Bum Man said check out www.atariage.com

You will need a list of the top 50 rarest games for the 2600.

A bit slow over the weekend, but here are my small scores from my excellent adventure in central Tennessee:

Guilty Gear - complete, disc in average condition, manual has that "snagged on the case" damage on the back. DP sez it's worth $25 and has a rarity of 7, ebay doesn't say a damn thing about its value as there have been very few recent successful auctions.
It cost me $5.

Neon Genesis Evangelion 2nd edition manga vol. 2: $7.50 from Sam Goody. A score since the manga section of the Cookeville, TN Goody is in permanent disarray.

a good day, I think.

kindof got burned yesterday. I picked up a dreamcast for 6.50 with hookups and 1 controller from a thrift. I couldnt really test it other than plug it in and see it got power (which it did). Anyway, it boots up to the menu if there is no disc in, but, since i have no games for this system, everytime i put a cd in the system dies and wont come on again for a while...Oh well, I can always use it for parts if i ever get another one... Has anyone else had this sort of problem and is it fixable?

I've gotten odd looks from cashiers when asking to buy empty packaging. but yeah, most of the time they'll just give it to you. It never hurts to ask, even if you do look like an idiot doing it. The several games I've completed this way more than make up for the awkward moment.

That's cool...I am also one of the few who opened theirs, and I really enjoyed playing Dizzy the Adventurer.  Also, the Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy on the Aladdin is supposedly a lot faster and better than the NES version (they added some extra buildings and items IIRC)...so that one would be worth checking out as well :)

Also got a second Neo-Geo AES controller yesterday for $38.  A little pricey, but it was worth it.

Final Fantasy IV (GBA)
Harvest Moon 64 (N64)
Mario Golf (N64)
Mario Tennis (N64)
Point Blank 3 (Sealed w/Guncon) (PSX)
Silpheed (SCD)
Super Mario Strikers (GCN)

Not a bad trade-off, IMO.  I really liked the Neo-Geo and the games were awesome, but it was just too damn expensive for my current budget.

New Years Eve I went to my girlfriends stepfathers house for his Christmas dinner and he got me F1 2001, Pride Fighting Championships, and Top Gun:  Combat Zones for the PS2.

The next day I went out and bought Romance of the 3 Kingdoms 9 for ps2 from TRU

Then I went to EB games and got Lord of the Rings:  The Third Age for PS2.

Then I went to Sears and got Kights of the Old Republic 2 for $20 and Ico for $16.

Then I went to FYE and got Baldies, Billiards, and Qix Neo for $7.50 combined

The next day I went to Blockbuster and Got Beyblade for $2 and then 25% off as well as Front Mission 4 for $10 and 25% off.

Well, I've desperatley wanted KOTOR 2 since it came out, and this is by far the cheapest I have seen it anywhere.  To a lesser extent, it was the same thing with Ico.  I've wanted that for a while too, but I haven't been able to find it anywhere, so $16 seemed like a pretty good price.

Here's the coolest thing that I have found lately.  It's unassembled but unfortunalty missing a few pieces (the launcher, missles, and back wheels).  For $1.99 I guess I shouldn't complain.  Anyone know if there are any others out like this?

**EDIT**
I guess there is an issue with attaching photos?  In any event what I picked up is a Capcom Street Fighter model called Karate Chopper, it even has a Super Street Figher II playing tip on the instruction sheet.

found a couple of handhelds yesterday. one was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles LCD game by Konami. $1.91

The other was kind of unique. It's called M.A.G.S. which stands for Music Actvated Game System. You hook it up to a music source and the music creates the gameplay. Sounds interesting. This one is still sealed but I plan to open it to try it out. $2.92

I got some store of those quarterly flier things(AGAIN) that they hand out everywhere.
I got one cool one that is supposed to go to store managers i would assume. Picked it up at Sears

It has UPC codes and stuff in the back of it for some PSOne games and PS2 and PSP.

Went to TRU and picked up a few more $10 games:
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicals
and
Sonic Double pack: Sonic Adventure DX and Sonic Adventure 2 Battle (2 games for $10)
Not great deals but not bad either....
In case you guys dont keep up with the CAG deals there are some TRUs closing and they are having 20% off games and 40% off accessories.  

The TRU I went to wasn't closing but they did seem to have a decent selection of games left...No RE4 or Pikmin 2 or the Mario Parties...but they had FF 1&2, Boktai 2, and Metal Slug Adv For GBA and Time Splitter Future perfect, FZero, Pokemon Channel, Geist, and the games I got (GC)....It doesn't hurt to check!


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Izret101 on January 22, 2006, 05:34:02 PM
Yea Geist is everywhere still it seems.
The game was only in retail for a 6(or less)months before thay put it up on that 10$ sale.

I haven't been back since i don't have money but good to know that sale is still going on. Hopefully they never put those games back up to full value.

GBC -- Deja Vu:  The Casebooks Of Ace Harding -- CIB -- $3.69

I've got OCD (diagnosed, on medication, the whole deal), but it's not a cleanliness thing.  Mine's more about organization.  My games are always sorted in a very specific way, plus I used to have all my systems sorted on my shelves by company, then in order by release date.  I'm way less anal about that stuff now, but it used to be a huge problem.

yea....my roommates once took my games that i had at school (a small set of games from one or two system) and switched the games, boxes and instructions with others so that i would have to open them all and take all the individuals parts and reorganize them......they did it just bc they know how i am and cant leave anything out of place for more than a few minutes....


....and, my roommate now, he has somewhere around 300+ DVDs.....he just had them stacked any old way....i took them all off the shelf and alphabatized them bc they were annoying me being out of order, and they arent even mine.....

.....ill go to my girlfriends room and clean for her, just because her stuff being out of order (at least out of an order that i would like) bothers me....

....they yell at me all the time...bc they just dont care about being messy.....

Everything you mentioned has at least partially happened to me at one point or another.  I'm on some medication that helps with OCD, so it doesn't bother me like it used to, but I still organize my stuff.

I finally caved in and bought Guitar Hero yesterday.  Truly a great game.  It even got my girlfriend up and playing.  It's worth every penny of $80.

Picked up for the Genesis:

Ms. Pac-man complete for $2
Toy Story complete for $2
MiG-29 Fighter Pilot Complete for $2
Jurassic Park box and manual with Dinosaurs for Hire $2

DS:
Picked up Sonic Rush for $10!!!  Circuit City had four of them all priced $29.99 except one of them was $9.99.  So I go to check out and it rings up at $29.99.  I tell the girl it is priced $9.99 and she goes oh it must be in the computer wrong.  Someone I think priced the one copy wrong for $9.99 and the game was originally still $29.99 so that was a good deal!  SWEET!!!

Yesterday I went to a local game store to sell off some stuff and only ended up getting $100 or so (they took a lot less than I thought they would), so I just put it right back into some more games.  I got the following:

- Electroplankton
- Panzer Dragoon Orta
- Hatris (this game is hilarious and awesome)

And for Odonadon:
- Turbografx-16 & Keith Courage in Alpha Zones

I really need to get some more games for this, but Keith Courage was the only one they had reasonably priced.  I'm mainly looking for 2-D horizontal- or vertical-scrolling shooters.

Revolution X - complete
Gadget Twins - box and cart only

A friend of mine picked these up for me at Toys R Us when the sale started, but I wasn't able to meet her and get them until recently.  I was going to pay her back for all of them, but she decided to give me two of them as late Christmas gifts. :)  Nice surprise.

Nice score!
I know the US one was limited to 20,000 or fewer releases.
I can't remember for sure, but i put the info is on the game page way back when if you really want to know :)


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Patrick on February 05, 2006, 07:07:18 AM
Well, I've got you to thank for it really. The only reason I knew anything about it was because of your thread about it a while before I joined, which you revived for Electroplankton!  Unfortunately, it doesn't seem  to be as sought after over here as it is in the US, but it can still go for about £30 on ebay. I think it either came as a gift when you preordered Pokemon Colosseum, or just came bundled with the game, as the front of the box says "Promotional item: not for resale".

At the same time, I picked up a strange sealed version of NHL 96 for the Genesis, which I thought might be some kind of bootleg because Genesis was spelt wrong on the box (but I think that's just down to EA getting kids to write the boxes for them). I'll take some photos of it in a moment and perhaps someone here can confirm that the US release has the same spelling mistake.


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: Patrick on February 05, 2006, 07:12:23 AM
Wow, no need to even take photos, you've got the scans already!

(http://www.rfgeneration.com/images/games/U-040/bf/U-040-S-03990-A.jpg)

The spelling mistake is in the bottom right, I don't know how I noticed it at the time. I still have absolutely no idea why someone was selling a stack of sealed US NHL games in the UK though!

Can't wait till i can start playing it.

You know I now wish I had looked at them better, I cant tell you too much but they were smallish and resebled the normal controler. I think there may have been some gold color on them.

I had to do a double take on that price. I asked the guy if it was a demo disc or something with the price that low. Apparantly, when GT4 came out, almost eveyone that owned GT3 turned it in, driving the price down. Pun intended.  8)

Picked up Flight of the Intruder, Star Trek 25th Anniversary Edition, and Hydlide for NES and Tecmo Super NBA Basketball and Hardball III for $2 a piece.  The Flight of The Intruder and Strak Trek were nice pickups.

I forgot I also picked up Taiko Drum Master new for $30.  Is this a good price?  I thought this was an awesome price for this but I could be wrong.  Anyone play this game before.

sweet! welcome to the world of thrift hunting. do they carry books or records?

for me this weekend:

NES - Lunar Pool, Battle Chess - loose - $2 each

also found a bag of LCD games for 45 cents. a Tails game from a McDonalds promo, an ESPN Michael Vick football game also from a McDonalds promo and a Shark Tale game that was available in boxes of cereal, General Mills labels I think.

I also had several nice non-gaming finds. I added a number of Star Trek books to my collection and picked up about 25 episodes of Deep Space Nine and Voyager from several Dollar Generals for $2 each.

Game Crazy has these for $17.99, but most of them have been bought out.  $30 isn't bad.

Over the weekend I got the following:
Apocalypse (PS) 2.99
Dracula:  The Ressurection (PS) 2.99
Intellivision Classic Games (PS) 2.99
Wu-Tang:  Shaolin Style (PS) 2.99

Onimusha 2 (PS2) 7.50

and a bunch of random Game Boy Advanced accesories from Intec for .99 a piece that will probably never be used.  The one thing that I probably will use is an FM radio reciever.

I bought my first two N-Gage games on Saturday for 7 bucks a piece brand new at Gamestop.  Apparently, they dropped the price of all thier new N-Gage games to $7 because that was the price on all of them.  So yeah anyways, I bought Bomberman and Xanadu Next.

Also, my parents are moving out of thier house in Detroit and I was moving some boxes from the basement when I found 2 things that made the entire wasted weekend worth it.

Both brand new and sealed
Mega Man X - SNES
Metroid Classic Series - NES

That's a BARGAIN! It's an excellent RPG! If you want to get the most out of the adventure, be sure to complete all of the bonus mini-game missions (that's my only hint).

A very underrated game, imo.

I travelled 5-6 hours today to do a trade with a Dutch NES collector in person!  This is the stuff I got out of the deal (all NES stuff):

Games:
Prince Valiant CIB
Rock 'n Ball NTSC manual only
F-15 City War (square variant)
Athletic World (PAL-B HOL version, variant with -USA front label!)

Accessories:
Beeshu Zinger - grey 'updated model' CIB
Beeshu Zinger - green CIB
Orange Zapper NIB - European FRG version
Acclaim Double Player set CIB (NIB?) - European version (multilingual box and manual)
Turbo Card controller

NES clones:
NASA Entertainment Computer System - loose
Ending Man S-700 - loose
Crazy Boy NIB - this is one of the coolest NES clones I've ever seen!  First of all, the manuals are extensive and written in nearly perfect English!  Second, on the box and in the manual it claims to have VGA output support etc, but the unit inside the box does have the slots but missing the ports (I guess it must have cost them too much to get it working or maybe my unit is a cheaper model?).  Thirdly, the controllers look like alien faces!!!  They also gave the controllers a separate manual and a name, ET!  :laugh:  In the manual, it also states that the controllers are available in 7-pin format for Nintendo NES (the ones included are 15 pin NES/Famiclone type).

Famiclone:
Family Computer "Action Set" NIB - this one is pretty cool, box is a miniature rip-off from the NES Action Set, on the side they also have FCES Advantage & FCES Max controllers advertised (former looks like the NTDEC arcade stick and the latter looks like the Wico Commander :))

and lastly, the Sybex Games Boek...this one's also cool as it came from a library and has a library-made hardcover (the book was sold as a softcover)...so that's kinda cool to have, too :)

Awww, I want a Crazy Boy!

I went to a thrift store yesterday during my lunch, and finally found something that I have been keeping an eye out for since I started collecting;  a Sega Nomad with AC adaptor.

Either the AC adapter is dead, or I need to open the Nomad up and re-solder some wires, because the plug isn't working.  I'm also going to have to get a replacement screen for it because the one that is on there now has a good sized crack in it.  Still it was only $8.18, so I think it was well worth it.

I also bough a Sonic video for $1.81.  It even had the sleeve.

This morning at a bootfair I picked up a sealed Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition for Gamecube for £2.50 (should have picked up more than one, there were a whole stack. Besides, mine isn't sealed anymore). I also got Mortal Kombat 3 for PSX and California Games on NES (in the most pristine condition I've ever seen unsealed!) for a quid each, and a GBA SP for £8.50 so I've got something to knock about in my pocket if I'm taking a handheld out with me.

Yeah, I thought so...There's a few stores close to where I live that have set prices for everything...Like SNES games $5 (at one $10 at another) and NES games $3.  Usually a bunch of junk, but sometimes you can find a hidden gem.  One day I will find a $5 or $10 dollar Chrono Trigger....one day!

Got these four unlicensed NTSC NES games from a Dutch collector for around 33$ shipped:

Castle of Deceit w/manual and cut-up box
Mermaids of Atlantis w/cut-up box
Pyramid (cut corner version)
Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu

I figured the price wasn't super cheap, but still a pretty good deal for these games...what do you guys think?  Carts are all in excellent to mint condition.

Also, this Castle of Deceit manual is multilingual with German and French parts...anybody else have a Bunch Games manual that is multilingual?

That is very tempting.  I gotta imagine the shipping would kill me though.


On Saturday, I went to a Sam Goody that is closing by me and bought Suikoden Tactics for $24 and a box of chocolate Pocky for $1.50.  Mmmmm.

Yesterday, acting on Den's tip, I went to the greatest dollar store ever concieved by man, Deal$, and got Tribes:  Vengeance and Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich.  I think I might stop by Friday and grab some more of the PC games as well as some new GBA accessories that I saw there.

Found a few things...Nothing too exciting...actually, I almost forgot about them...I was sifting through my parents house (my old room is a storage area) and found:

Complete SNES box (Almost new condition; it has a small hole in the front)

NES Action set styro: I don't know if this will come in handy or not...pretty good condition though

A poster for super slap shot (SNES)
&
A Lethal Enforcers Box (SNES) with inserts and everything except the gun and game....I miss that game.

Jack Nicklaus' Greatest 18 Holes of Major Championship Golf (CIB) (NES)$1
Castlevania (loose) (NES) $1.50
Aerobiz Supersonic (SNES) (In rental box w/ Instructions but no map) $2

Post by: den68 on March 12, 2006, 06:17:27 PM
ah the thrill of the hunt. it's my favorite part of collecting. you never know what will turn up, something rare or nothing at all. and when you do find something it's usually very cheap. the Donkey Kong Jr table top I found is sweeter to me because I spent $12 bucks for it at a thrift rather than $100 on ebay.

I'm lucky though, I've got lot's of places I can look for stuff and they are located such that I don't need to invest a lot time checking them out frequently. ebay is great if you don't have that option. I'm in no hurry to finish a complete library of anything, I just enjoy looking aroung to see what turns up.

my finds this weekend:

Genesis - Bart vs the Space Mutants - w/box

a 35mm camera with e the N64 logo on it.

VHS - Biker Mice from Mars - The Adventure Begins and The Pits

and from Scott:

Genesis - THunderfox, WHere in the World is Carmen San Diego, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Sega CD - Wirehead

all of those were complete and $2 a piece.

Fable (new) - $12
Def Leppard - Rock of ages:  The definitive collection $13

I haven't looked at PS1 games at EB or Gamestop for a while, so I was pleasantly surprised at the prices for those games.  Guess I'll have to go to a couple more this week.

 I traded an old RCA 25" TV, and $30 for an Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom arcade cabinet.
The cabinet is an Atari System I, and can play four other games, all you need are the kits for them. Road Runner, Road Blasters, Peter Pack Rat, and Marble Madness.
The cabinet is in pretty good shape too, I just need to clean it up, relaminate it, and get some new Atari vinyls.
I'll edit some pics in this post when I get done cleaning it up.

Nothing major for me so far.

I went to a couple of thrift stores yesterday and got a Mario Kart 64 pen/pencil holder thing for .49 cents at one and a complete copy of Bill Walsh's College Football at another for .99 cents.  And when I say that the Bill Walsh game is complete, I mean just that.  It came with the game, box, manual, poster, registration card, and around 30 team playcards!  Well worth the money!

Then today I went to TRU on my lunch and found out that any items in the store that are still green tagged are now 90% off.  It's pretty much just accessories, but I don't mind paying a pitiance for the stuff that I got:

2 3rd party PSX controllers for $1.50 each
A PSX starter kit that comes with a controller, memory card, memory card holder, and controller cord extension for $2
A PS2 multitap/multi-out AV/remote control thing for $3.

I also bought Viewtiful Joe 2 for PS2 while I was there for $10

Stopped at my parent's house and found my copy of the Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom hint book (I guess they didn't call them strategy guides back then). Now all I need is a SegaGenesis and the cartridge. ;)

Nice :)  I guess they called it a hint book because it came with the game and didn't need to be purchased separately, right?

I know Sword of Vermilion came with a hint book. The Phantasy Star 2, 3 & 4 you had to send off for them. Each of the PS games came with a mail order form.

I could be wrong but I have had my PS 2 forever and I have always had the book. That game is close to impossible without it.

http://maxlow.net/phantasystar/psii/psiihint-1.html

That site says it was " released along with the game". Does that mean it came with it or you could buy it?

I went on a whirlwind tour of Ohio over the weekend for work (Cincinnati, Dayton, and Cleveland over Saturday and Sunday) and I finally got around to stopping by Video Game Connection in Cleveland.  It's advertised In the DP classic guide and it's only a mile or two away from our Cleveland office.

The stuff there was priced a bit higher than I normally like to pay ($10 for a complete Defender 2 for NES), but nothing outrageously priced.  I ended up picking up some common games:

Ice Hockey - Atari 2600 (Complete)
Yar's Revenge - Atari 2600 (Sealed)
Forgotten Worlds - Genesis (Complete)

I spent just a bit over $12 for those.

Also while I was in Dayton, I stopped by a Deals dollar store that was by our Dayton office and picked up Sonic 2 for the Game Gear for $1.  That store still has an assload of Game Gear and Genesis games, but unfortunatley I already had them all.  I just needed the box and manual for Sonic 2.

Nice pickups!  Werewolf for NES seems to be pretty rare in PAL format, or is it more common in the Scandinavian region?  Also, what color is the Zinger joystick?  Just curious, because it seems like the green one is fairly common around Europe.

Thanks!
Werewolf is PAL-B / SCN and is very common (in Norway at least). I've got 2 loose carts and 1 CIB.
The Zinger is grey and it seems like it's the most common color in Norway/Scandinavia - I've only seen this in grey (never in green). [Pic. (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/Jomba07/Nintendo/NES/Zingerboxa.jpg)]

I wouldn't call this minor, but I also don't think it needs its own thread.

I found an *ALMOST* complete Arc the Lad Collection at GameStop yesterday. $28 after discount! I picked up a bunch of other minor things as well in the B2G1F but that is a definite highlight. It's probably one of the closest things I have to a 'grail' in my collection, too. :)

Looks like it's not a game :( but a program for amateur radio operators.  It allows you to control an AEA Computer Patch Interface (pic below) via serial cable.  Not sure what the hell it is but it was probably cool in it's day.

Nice pickups!  Too bad about the crushed Max controllers, it happens to me quite a bit as well that accessory boxes arrive crushed and damaged :(  By the way, do you have a pic of the Compute's Guide to Nintendo Adventure Games, by any chance?  Then I'll add it to this list:

Today I went to the largest event in my area...Swap (or Trade) days.  It takes place at the Scioto County Ohio Fairgrounds 2 or 3 times a year and it is the most insane thing ever.  It is like a gigantic flea market but with animals, guns, and swords!  This is the place to buy Llamas, peacocks, any type of dog that a person could want, plus it has all the junk that a person would love to thrift through....

Sadly, I assume that ebay is the culprit, the video game selection was very high price (ex...Maniac Mansion loose $15) and  many places had NES games for $4 and $5 dollars and SNES and Genny games for $10.  So I didn't walk out with a lot of deals...just these:

Panic Bomber for the Virtual Boy: BOX Only: $0.50
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1) (Greatest Hits) Complete and Mint condition: $4

I was really excited about getting that Castlevania game (Though I dont have a ps1 or 2!) but I was more excited about making it out of the place without being bitten by a passer-by's goat or spit on by a llama or even shot (This place was scary!)


Title: Re: the small score's thread

Xbox - Far Cry Instincts: Evolution
PS2 - Hot Wheels Stunt Track Challenge

NES games:

PAL NES Asterix w/box - 5 euro
PAL NES Asterix CIB - 8 euro
PAL NES Noah's Ark loose - 4 euro
NTSC Rollerblade Racer loose - 6 euro
NTSC Dirty Harry w/manual - 6 euro
NES 260 in 1 w/box - 7,50 euro
NES 168-in-1 Mastergames w/box - 7,50 euro
NES Super Mario IV  - FREE
NES Super Mario Family - FREE

NES accessories:

Suncom Mother Ship US version - NIB - 5 euro (it's odd how it says on the box that this one is not endorsed or supported by Nintendo, yet on the hangtab extension on the top it does carry the Nintendo seal of quality?)
2 grey Nuby Cleaning Kit - NIB - 3 euro each
2 purple Nuby Cleaning Kit - NIB - 3 euro each
Camerica Game Genie w/broken off extension - FREE

NES collectibles:

Super Mario Bros domino set w/box - 5 euro

All the other stuff including games for Sinclair Spectrum, Atari ST, Saturn, PC, etc, was free thanks to Retro Rene (I think that's who the guy is, looking at a pic from another website).  I also got those Super Mario pirates (IV and Family) from him for free!

The 260-in-1 just says Gold Cassette Series on the back, and on the box it just says TV Video Game Cartridge in four languages (English, Spanish, Dutch, and one of the Scandinavian languages I think)

Ok, the Scandinavian languages is Swedish.
I've got a lot of those XXX-in-1 carts, with simular label as the one on your box (or is it a window in the box, so you can see the carts label?). There's also some Asian writing on the pics on my labels - I'll show it to you later, 'cause now I'm going away for some days.

Have a great Easter holiday everyone!

Thanks for the info.  Yup, it's a window in the box.  I have a few like these as well, but unfortunately most multicarts have only a few real games on them and usually fairly crappy ones as well.  I just tested the 260-in-1, though, and I was really surprised...they put a lot of effort into the title screens, with animations, music, sound effects, etc...very nicely done.  The multicart also has lots of unique games on it, including many unlicensed Hwangshinwei and Famicom-only releases.  

On a side note, I also picked up a SuperVision 64-in-1 cartridge for NES recently.  They normally have lots of unique games on them if I'm not mistaken, but this 64-in-1 only has around 10 games on them, and crappy ones while at it.  :(

Anyway, happy easter holidays!  Enjoy your vacation man!

I went to Columbus yesterday with my wife and stopped at a few thrift stores....
Found:
Mattel Intellivision (loose) $3.96 (Works fantastic!)
Microsurgeon (intellivision) CIB (Overlays, manual, everything!) $2.96
This place had a half a dozen or so CIB Intellivision games for that price...I was just poor, hopefully the next time I go up they will still have some left.

At another thrift I got:
Word Fun (Intellivision) $.35
Astrosmash (intellivision) $.35
Chessmaster (Gameboy) $1.35
all loose

All in all a pretty good Intellivision day!

Nice finds!  Ultima VII is one of my favorite games of all time, it is the first RPG I ever played, and it had me and my brothers hooked!  If it doesnt run on your PC at work you should look for the Exile version on the web, adapted to work on modern PCs.

On a seperate note, today I went to a flea market (Gibralter in Taylor for Den, Phoenix, and anyone else in the area) and grabbed four random, loose 2600 games:

Breakaway IV
Space Wars
Championship Soccer
Atlantis

I got those for $10.  There were a little expensive, but ever since Cinci Classic, all I want to buy is Atari stuff.  It's damn near a sickness.

5 ps1 games for $1 a piece
Kiss Pinball (Complete)
Metal Gear Solid (GH) (Complete)
D (Missing Booklet)
Legend of Legaia (Missing Booklet)
and another game I forget (I am so out of it today...long weekend) This one is Colony Wars

anyway this score put me over 300 games!

I also bought a broken ps2 for $20: It came with 2 controllers, all hookups, 3 games (Get on da Mic w/Mic, a Casino game , and Funkmaster Flex's Digital Hitz Factory)

Pretty disapointed with the ps2...I can't fix it.  It will play ps1 games but not ps2.   If anyone knows how to fix these and wants it IM me an offer...otherwise its going to ebay. (Im only selling the console none of the other stuff)

Actually the ps2 that I got is a 50001 model and is quite newer than the first generation models that you are talking about....You are probably right about what's wrong with it though...just wanted to say that it was a newer version.

Apparently Gamestop and EB are clearing out quite a few things, so everyone may want to go out and pick up what they can.  All TV Games are $5, N-Gage Qd's are $20 bucks at EB ($50 at Gamestop) and all N-Gage games are $1.50-3.00.  EB is getting rid of thier used PC games.  All PC games are $.99-15.99 depending on thier age.  They are also going to stop carrying PS1 and N64 games on June 1st, so you might want to keep that in mind.

I picked up the wireless Ms. Pac-man,  Frogger, Star Wars, but they didn't have the Atari Flashback.  I will have to stop at another EB (or two) to see if they have that.  I also picked up a couple of Long Box PS1 games (Desent and Destruction Derby) for $1.79 each.  I'll also have to check out the N-gage stuff.

I should have mentioned this yesterday.

I think i got my first 360 game.

I was running out to try and find Guitar Hero and i took my aunts boyfriend out to grab a pack of smokes.

We were at GameStop and he was asking my opinion on 360 games and then said i should pick one out for myself to play when i visit since i am there so much and i help them out all the time.

He later found out my b-day was in a few days and said i already got my gift.

But i don't own a 360 and i plan on just leaving it there.
So while he said it was mine i'm not sure what to think lol.

In anycase it was Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.

Suncom Mother Ship US version - NIB - 5 euro (it's odd how it says on the box that this one is not endorsed or supported by Nintendo, yet on the hangtab extension on the top it does carry the Nintendo seal of quality?)

For those that care, I came across a pic of a US one without the official Nintendo seal on the top, so the one I found is prolly just a quick n dirty re-release where they just forgot to scrap that "not endorsed by Nintendo" message ;)

Post by: m3talst0rm on April 28, 2006, 09:59:02 AM
traded a bunch of old magic cards for a few games...

Legend of Dragoon PS1 (No manual and no back insert)
Parasite Eve PS1 (Everything except manual)
Soul Calibur 2 GC (Complete)

The guy says he has Street fighter Alpha 3 ps1 that he is going to give me too....so maybe I will get that.


I am kind of sad about the magic cards...I was so psyched about getting some games for practically nothing...but I was looking through all of the cards and was remembering how much fun that game really was.  

I used to play alot in the mid 90s and have no one that is into them so I guess it wasn't a real loss...

I just hate to get rid of things.  even if they were sitting in the attic for over 5 years collecting dust.


Title: Re: the small score's thread

Very nice score. I want my mommy is very tuff to find. The Eggomania isn't very easy either. Which version did you get? The beveled or standard casing?

NES games Total recall, Double Dribble, Pinball, Tetris(Nintendo version with manual), Code name Viper and a demo VHS for The Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask. The games where loose but are in good shape, four of them came with those semi clear plastic boxes that snap shut. That was all $5.

Good job getting the R.O.B.  ;)

I know this isn't a Game find, but I found it looking for games.  I picked up 25 Dragonball Z and GT tapes for $12 at Goodwill.  I just think that is a cool score.

I had a pretty disapointing weekend...I hit over 25 yard sales and 2 flea markets and this is all I got:

Myst for saturn CIB (broken box) $1
Tomb Raider for saturn Disk and Box (broken box) $1
Road Rash III Genesis CIB $1
Code Name Viper NES Loose $1
A Gameboy Color puzzle game...I forget the title loose $1
Also i got a rack to hang on the wall that holds genesis games and says genesis on it....$2

I'm pretty satisfied with what I got....I just would have thought that hitting so many yard sales would have yielded more scores.

Thats one thing about yard sales..you might go to dozens and find nothing then you go to one and hit the mother load and you forget all about the ones you didnt find anything at..
flea markets are a bit harder if you want to find stuff at the flea market you got to get there as the sellers pull in and watch as they unload to get any good deals.

Over the last couple of weeks, I've had some interesting items come into my room of doom:

small score #1: 2x Sega Genesis model 2 with 4 controllers (2 6-button, 2 3-button) and an RF switch for each, as well as the following games:

Super Street Fighter 2 (box + game)
NBA Jam TE (cart only)
Olympic Gold (box + game)
Ecco 2: The Tides of Time (cart only)
Sonic Spinball (cart only)
Lotus Turbo Challenge (cart + box)
Combat Cars (cart + box)
Separation Anxiety (cart + box)

The games and the consoles work; power cords coming in courtesy of DPer Jed (thanks!).

small score #2:
4x 2-pack Doc's Dreamcast wireless controllers
picture: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v31/sailorneorune/dcwireless002.jpg

This picture has made the rounds of CAG and DP in the pursuit of knowledge as to just when the hell these things first appeared and how much they retailed for... one set is on ebay and ends on 5/11, one set has been opened, used once, and photographed, and the other two are still new in the boxes to trade or sell.
I still don't have much in the way of info on these things...  :shrug:

small score #3:
Old-school PS1 with unused parallel port and 2 controllers - no hookups, but the AV cable is reasonable and the generic power cords, also good for the PS2 and Dreamcast are a dime a dozen.
This thing works too (tested it with Castlevania SotN).

Not too bad... I shall attempt to trade this stuff one of these days.

TurboExpress System (Doesn't work unfortunately - If anyone can help - PM me)

6 games for TurboGrafx 16/Turbo Express:

@ Mezmoron - Crash & the Boys and Princess Tomato are some of my favorite games.  I really need to find Princess Tomato.

And all that TG16 stuff at a yard sale?  The only thing I've ever found at a yard sale are ceramic geese and coffee cups that say "World's Best Grandma."  I swear in the many years I've been going to yard sales, I've never found any video game related items.  Never.  I'm jealous...nice finds!

Hehehe - I'll take some pics later and post them.  It's a shame too....It seems like the Turbo Express system is worth $60-$100 on Ebay :-(

The wife and I went to a few garage sales today, video game wise it started out good but the rest of the sales had nothing I wanted.

two books:

How to win at Nintendo
How to win at Nintendo games 2
50 cents each

A Game Boy color game shark $1

And a U Force controller which unfortunatly didn't have the t bar thing but it was only 50 cents. It was at a church/school rumage sale, they had no idea what it was. My wife talked them down from $1 which I thought was hilarious.

Last week I wandered into an EB store that I don't go to very often and found the following:

NES UForce Complete in the box - $4.99

And I picked up a bunch of games that they couldn't find in the system so they charged me 99 cents for the lot:
3DO Psychic Detective (3 disks) in jewel cases with manual
3DO Quarterback Attack Loose
3DO Panzer General Loose
3DO Blade Force Compete
3DO Alone in the Dark 2 Complete

Update, I opened up the UForce box to check it's condition and found the box also contained an NES Advantage controller and the book "Mastering Nintendo Video Games - Tips-Tricks-Strategies'  An unexpected bonus!!


So, when are you sending some of that stuff my way? ;)  Nice pick-up!

I went to a couple goodwills today....

At one I found several Electronic Gaming Motnthlys @ .25 a piece.
Issue #s:
39
66
67
69
71
81 x2
103 x2
108
172
173
174
176

At the other goodwill I found a R.O.B. in box for $5.30.  I was pretty excited because I really don't have that many items in my collection that are "in box."
However, I was kinda disapointed when i got home and was looking it over....It is just the robot, box, and foam-ish insert.  No gyros or stackers or documentation....So I don't know if this was a good deal or not.  I will have to go back and see if I find any of these items in a misc toy bin...but I would say that they are long gone.

Went to GameStop to look for games.  I saw a guy a work with, selling his Playstation 2.  He said they were giving him $39 for it.  I pulled out $45 and bought it right there.   A PS2, a controller and a memory card for $45, I think I scored a good one.

Nice deal :)

I went to a flea market earlier today and scored a couple things:

Atari 2600 complete in box
extra Deluxe Joystick complete in box
7 atari games (5 loose, one cib, one in a little cartridge case)
Philips video games #38 and 44
SMS game Bubble Bobble complete in box

No major finds, but I only paid 11 euro, so it wasn't too bad either, and the flea market was as close by as they get, so it was pretty worthwhile checking it out ;)

At one garage sale I passed up a truckload of stuff (Genesis, Playstation, N64, and Apple IIe) because I had almost everything that was there.  That sucked.

That's pretty expensive, did you get it shipped from Germany/Austria?  eBay is definitely a good source for games, especially when you buy large lots of 10 or more games.  You should check out the French eBay, there are lots of larger lots on there that usually end at very decent prices.

Yes, expensive indeed, and no, I got it from Norway.
Thanks for the tip about the French eBay, but my French is so bad that I hardly found the gaming section...

Yeah, I got lucky.  I was ecstatic to get Gumshoe and Super Dodgeball for $2 a piece.  The $1 NES games were very awesome.  I bought them all if I needed them or not.  And seeing TMNT 3 was one of them and I needed was extra nice!:)  Usually the GW's around here are on crack, though.  Anywhere from $3-$5 for NES games and, yes, I saw a Mario/Duckhunt for $5 here, too.  They were selling a Genesis model 2 for $10 or $15 for just the system!!  No controllers, games, AC adapter, or RF switch!  What a bunch of dumbasses.  It looks like it is like that at all GW's around the nation.  You have to get somebody who doesn't know what they are doing pricing the games.  Than you get the better deals.

The Goodwill in my town charges a flat rate of $5 for all console video games. This would be nice if there were ever any games that were either rare or ones I wanted, but 80% of them are SMB/DH. The rest are barely better then that. So I say "Darn Goodwill! Darn them all to heck!" |D

We must shop in the same stores.  :yuck:

Found this today at a flea:

Complete NES System and these loose games:
Mario 3
Kings of the Beach
Magic Johnson's Fast Break
Mafat Conspiracy
Cybernoid
TMNT III

All for about $30...a little pricey for me, but I haven't seen anything in the wild in a very long time.  I couldn't help myself and had to buy them.  :P

OK, I think I've figured out my picture problem.  If I post my pictures to my Yahoo account it significantly reduced the file size.  Don't why but it works.  When I resave them from my Yahoo pics it saves them as the same file size as on the Yahoo site so without further ado here are the pics of the Mario Camera I got awhile back and I promised pics of:

Cool, I'm hoping to find one of those someday as well.  I've come across some other board games from video games such as Pac-Man and such, but they were always very overpriced.  

Also nice camera shaggy!  Do you know if those were give out for free as a marketing stunt or did you actually have to buy them?

:laugh:

Found quite an odd assortment of crap last night.  Went to visit my wife's grandmother in this tiny, tiny little town.  Apparently, there's an auction house in that tiny, tiny little town and there's a huge auction every Friday night.

So, just for the helluvit, I go...and find a few video game items.  One of the video game things I spot is a broken Xbox and figured, what the hell, I'll bid on it.  Got heated between me and two other guys, but my bid of $20 won out.  Yeah!  A broken Xbox...well, figured I could tinker with it and maybe replace the Thompson that's probably inside it.

Later on, I go to the auctioneer's office to pick up my Xbox and find out, for $20, I also got all of this:

Broken Xbox with all connections
Broken Xbox controller
MX Unleased for Xbox
Exhibition Vol. 5 for Xbox
Three ceramic figurines
Two Thermos lunchboxes
A kid's antique metal bank
A box of misc. nuts, bots, and screws
Some sort of Happy Meal toy
A working adding machine
Talking Computron (1987 - need to look into this a little more)
A kids work/play bench
Some piece of stage lighting equipment
A working microwave

Apparently the Xbox was part of a much larger lot of stuff...and I bought it all...for $20.

So, I get home and get a better look at this Xbox.  It looks like it's been kept in a barn or something.  Sticky, nasty, scratched up and smelly.  Plug it in and it immediately starts flashing yellow (thank God it wasn't red).  The CD door acts like it wants to open but can't.  I can see there's something stuck inside it.  Somehow I'm able to pry out very carefully a Backstreet Boys CD someone jammed into the poor thing.

Plug the Xbox back in and still get the yellow flashing light.  Check the connections and they're fine, but extremely nasty/sticky/gross.  So, I sit and clean the thing for about an hour...plug it back in...success!  |D

I cleaned the controller, too, and it works nicely.  Interestingly, on the Xbox, someone saved a bunch of Skynyrd songs...cool!  So, I turn up Sweet Home Alabama, dance around my Room of Doom, celebrating the nice little find I came across.

I asked one of the auctioneers how often they get things like that in and he tells me "every Friday.  Sometimes stuff like that gets thrown away because nobody wants them."  Ok, so I'll be making a trip to this tiny, tiny town every Friday from now on.

My Power Glove finally came in the mail. It took a while because it was returned to the sender but it only took 4 days the second time. :P

I went to the cinema to see The Omen (meh) and when I came out, I was five minutes over 2 hours on the car park, so I thought I'd make the most of the extra £1 spent and went to Gamestation.

I picked up 3 Mega Drive games and 3 Master System games. They were £1.99 each and buy one get one free (£6 for all of them).

Side Pocket (MD, Complete)

Most copies I saw out there was used with some disc marks and stuff like that.

This copy was only used like 4 or 5 times ever.  The disc looks brand new, and plays like a charm.  Then again, I don't mind paying a lot of money for the game, mostly because I was playing the game on a CDR and I feel sad about it.  I got this not on ebay, but in the shmup forum.  I don't see this game often in the shmup forum, and the last copy I saw was for a CD only copy for $20.  I've seen this game going for $35-$40 in many places before.

This morning I got a Mega Drive 2 with 16 games for £20. They're all complete apart from Mickey Mania. Two of them have posters. I only have four of these games already, which is good. No shitty sports games, either.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/fibblewith/10606003.jpg)

Then from the same person I got a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128k +3 in very good condition for £5 and an Atari 2600, almost mint, with 13 loose games for £7.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/fibblewith/10606004.jpg)

For some reason the action button on the 2600 isn't working. I tried a different controller and had the same problem.

Nice score & welcome to the boards! I think the Atari was the best deal. Which 7 games did you get?

It could be the prongs inside the controller port of the system are bent, or dirty.  I'm sure it can be fixed.

I also noticed you got a few US titles for the Genny. I have never seen a pal game in the wild here, but have seen tons of Japanese releases in local game stores.

It was 13 games with the console for £7 :)
Mystery game (no stickers, and I haven't tried playing it yet)
Solar Fox
Moon Patrol
Jr Pac Man
Q-Bert
Phoenix
Defender 2
Centipede
Centipede (Different label. I've got 3 differently labeled Centipedes now)
Space Invaders
Real Sports Boxing
Pole Position
Smurf

Apart from the mystery game and a lot of dust, they're all in excellent condition.

I had a look inside and didn't see anything out of place. The prongs were soldered in properly, and nothing was bent. I'll try cleaning them. Would a 1 player game work using the second controller port? I'd imagine it wouldn't.

I've seen the Genesis version of The Lion King a few times before but it was usually priced higher than it's worth, probably because it's an import. Apart from those copies of the same game, I don't think I've ever come across any other Genesis game outside of ebay.

I cleaned the pins thoroughly and it still won't work. Does that mean one of the chips could be fried?

It's quite annoying how I've finally got a 2600 and it's in very good condition except I can't play games properly.

unfortunately you cannot. I'm sorry your first chance at such a classic system has been a downer, but I'm sure someone can fix it. The Atari's have a great life span and I've fixed several over the years.

I cleaned the pins thoroughly and it still won't work. Does that mean one of the chips could be fried?


not necessarily. It could be many things. The best deal that you got was the fact it was boxed. The boxes are coming harder to get, if you can't revive this bad boy....just pick up another core unit.

Well, I made it to the North West and today was my first chance to go and hunt down some vintage games.
I picked up these 3 hard to find games.

Destiny Of An Emperor
Dusty Diamonds Softball
Tecmo Cup Soccer Game

All were mint and got em for $10 total!

I got this one yesterday from my gf:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=18807&item=8289053189

Its in very nice condition. We found out later she payed a couple bucks too much for it but learning experience for her and a nice thought.

At the car boot today all I saw were a few PS1 games for £5 each, and a box with a Mega Drive 2, 3 loose games, and a joystick for £20, no offers. They wouldn't sell the joystick on its own, so I passed.

Then I saw a pile of Dreamcast stuff. £8 for the console, or £12 for the lot. There are 2 VMUs in the controllers.

Nearly all of the cases are broken, but it's not bad for £12.

It's something like 20 games, including 2 PS1 discs. There are 4 Shenmue discs in different cases, so I might have counted up wrong.

My wife bought me a DS Lite and New Super Mario Bros. and Brain Age for Father's day.  I guess today was launch day so this will make my first console that I purchased at launch.

BTW...I am so glad that I waited to get the lite.  It is so much more comfortable than the original and looks a whole lot better as well.

I went to my local game shop to see what Dreamcast games they had. They were all £5 each, so I decided not to bother. The manager knows me so he said he could do a deal. £25 for all 10.

I like this manager much more than the old one.:D

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/fibblewith/Pictures.jpg)


I also got a CD repair kit this morning to fix the scratched up Dreamcast games I got yesterday. I tried about 5 and only one of them worked but they're fine now.


Then later I went to an indie, cash-in-hand game shop where I traded in some spare Mega Drive games for £10. I took a spare Mega Drive with me but I forgot to take the controller and aerial lead. :-/

I may as well say this here. I got Dynamite Headdy for the Mega Drive from ebay today.

That's my spending done for a fortnight, now.

Nice!!  I didn't even see this until now ;)  

Is the SCN Stadium Events pretty rare over there?  I always see the German version, but never the SCN.  The last complete one on eBay.com was the first SCN CIB one I've seen...all others always had the blue manual from Germany in them...

Thanks! I've only seen one before at the Scandinavian auctionsites (and that one was kind of broken) so I guess it's kind of rare.
This copy I picked up at my friends gamestore (along with the other games).



Today I got Kensei Sacred Fist for the PSX

Nice :) I have the same thing with those How to Win at Nintendo books...there's quite a few variations out there.  I think I've even got three variations of one or two of them ;)

I also got some cool stuff in the mail - Color Dreams/Bunch Games package:

5 black cartridge Master Chu
3 blue Galactic Crusader
1 blue P'Radikus Conflict
1 blue Raid 2020
1 black HES Impossible Mission II

Got them for a decent price, which is why I got multiple copies of some of the games.  Gonna put the dupes up FS/T soon.  

I also got a Pro Deluxe joystick for NES from Australia...new in box, but poorly packaged so the box is completely crushed.  Hopefully I'll be able to get a partial shipping refund from the seller...I hate it when they don't take the time to package something, especially when I pay shipping costs from one continent to another.  ;)

For some reason the action button on the 2600 isn't working. I tried a different controller and had the same problem.


So, uhhhh, this "broken" 2600 turns out to be my stupidity.

I had another look at it today and tried some different games on it.
:brightidea:
There's actually nothing wrong with the Fire button. The first game I tried last week was Space Invaders. I turned it on and had control of movement but I couldn't fire. I tried some other games and Fire didn't seem to do anything, so I assumed there was something wrong with it.

Today, the games I tried all had working Fire buttons. I tried Space Invaders again but still couldn't fire. Then I remembered there are select and reset buttons. :dunce:

That did the job.

Mickey's Speedway USA
Rugrats Paris the movie
Star Wars Battle for Naboo
Rayman 2 the Great Escape
Donkey Kong Racing
Cruis'n Exotica
Pokemon Snap
Starcraft 64

Most of them have his name on them, so does anyone know how to remove permanent marker from a N64 cartridge?


Title: Re: the small score's thread
Post by: den68 on June 23, 2006, 05:05:31 AM
Pokemon Snap? now you can play that in your Pikachu N64.

nice pickup. the 2 cart racers are pretty fun.

as for the marker... if it's on the labels don't even try to get it off. I've found that N64 labels don't take kindly to any forms of cleaning solution.

if it's on the plastic I've had success with Goo-Gone, 409 or rubbing alcohol. I use q-tips to scrub it off. Depending on the marker you made not get it all off but you should be able to make it less visible.

The car boot sale was bigger than usual this morning. There weren't many games, though. The first stall I saw games at wanted £4 each for common games like Dragon on the Megadrive or a loose Zelda:OoT.

I decided to go with Zelda: Majora's Mask and Super Bomberman 2, both complete. Bomberman is slightly squashed but otherwise they're in good condition. Remember to always check what's inside the box. I was going to buy a couple more games but noticed they were light, so I checked inside and there were no games. I would have had Earthworm Jim 2 if the cartridge was actually in there.

Then further on I got 3 PS1 games and a PS1 memory card for £1.50 each.  Spyro, Spyro 2, and Croc.

From the last person with any games, Metal Slug 4 for the Xbox for £3.

No fantastic deals, but they're ok prices.


Also, this week I ordered some games on Amazon. Mario Kart DS for £18 yesterday.

At the end of May Amazon was doing a World Cup special offer where they gave you a £5 when you spent over £20. I bought Mario 64 DS back then for £23 and got the voucher. Yesterday I noticed it was £18, so I emailed them and got £5 back! They don't advertise this, but if the price goes down within 30 days of ordering something, they'll refund the difference. I found out a few months ago when I ordered a PC controller for £18. The next day it had gone down to £8 but they hadn't sent it yet. I asked how much I would eventually pay and they refunded £10.

So I used that voucher to buy Liberty City Stories and New Super Mario Brothers for £15 and £25, so £35 in total.

I cringe when I see Americans pay only $35 for new DS games, and $15-20 for LCS.

 SNES Exertainment Mountain Bike Rally in Box for $1.06

A local video store had it for sale $1.00 plus tax which made it $1.06. It doesn't have the instructions because the lady doesn't know where the instructions are kept for the games they are selling. The box is still in the plastic it was just opened on the left side to get the game out. Also it looks like no one ever rented the game. It is in great shape. which brings me to my question. What do you use to clean sticker glue off of games? I use rubbing alcohol is there something better?


Not that anyone wants to see some crappy pics of this game, but you can if you want...........

Well this isn't exactly the find of the century, but I picked up a Nintendo 64 today for $3. It has the power cord and the av cable but no controllers. Also it has the memory expansion pack which I somehow forgot to look for until after I bought it, so I kinda lucked out there.

I did have a quick question about it though: As I don't have any N64 games I simply turned the console on to check it out. Only a red light came on on the front of the box and some light flickering on the tv. Is that what is supposed to happen when you turn it on without a game? I was kinda think'n there would be some sort of screen which would pop up or something.

Nope, that's exactly what the N64 does. If a game is dirty, it will do the same thing. This is a great system and congrats on the excellent price! I recommend  looking at pawn shops to see if they have any spare controllers, I'm sure you can pick one up for 5 bucks or so.

I went to Maplin to get a DIN plug for my Mega Drive and while I was in the area I thought I would pop into Gamestation. I got 6 boxed games for £6.

Master System:
Land of Illusion (complete)
Vigilante

Mega Drive:
Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
Speedball 2
Last Battle
Rolo to the Rescue. I'm pretty sure this is the Genesis version, which, according to DP, is an R6 and worth $20 complete.

The manager said they would be having loads of Mega Drive and Master System cartridges for something like 20p each next week. They've got loads in the store room and they can't get rid of them. I usually only collect boxed MD and SMS games, but for that price it's worth a look.

My Amazon games came today. Not bad seeing as they were sent yesterday 2nd class.

New Super Mario Bros for DS and Liberty City Stories for PS2.

Mario Bros was £25 and LCS was £15. But I used a £5 voucher and got £5 back from a game I ordered a while ago, so it came out to £29. :D

I've played about an hour of LCS and it seems great. It's GTA3 with Vice City gameplay. I've heard it's not a good conversion from the PSP version but I can't comment on that. So far it seems like the good old GTA made fresh and new. GTA:SA was too different from 3 and Vice City and I felt it lost some of the charm. For £15 it's a good game.

nothing much at the flea market today.... I found a disc only copy of Sonic Riders for the cube...I hate to buy loose games for the cube (or any other disc-based system) but this was only $3 for a game that came out, what, a few months ago.

I bet all you need now all you need is an n-gage to play them on ;)  I picked up a few from EB at the same price and have no where to play them.  I tried them on my Treo 650 (which like the n-gage is palm based and has an SD slot) but they didn't work.

I picked up 5 CIB Saturn games at lunch for $2.48 each, Astal, Panzer Dragoon, Shanghai Triple Threat, Quarterback Attack, and Last Gladiators Pinball.

They put me at 40 Saturn games and 3 games from 2000 listed on RFG!

I got one of those "custom made" clocks from eBay as a gift from Shannon.

Of course it is a Mortal Kombat one.
It looks like when they cropped the label it was originally the MK II text because it has the bottoms of the roman numerals in the center but the rest of them are missing lol.


My gil hibben Mortal Kombat knife came in today too and my PS2/PC game(s) game from eBay as well.
I have seperated almost all my MK items from my normal collection in preperation for new shelving units where it will be sperately gathered/displayed/contained.

WWE-Day of Reckoning (GC)
Arc the Lad-Twilight of Spirits (PS2)
Half Life 1 (PS2)
Panzer Dragoon Orta (Xbox)

Anyone know where I can pick up some empty original boxes for GC,PS2,and XBox?

Well, right as my mom was leaving to get some groceries, I said I was going out, so she handed me a five spot, so I hit up all of the stores that would sell used games. At Salvation Army I found:

Gunstar Heroes
Wonderboy in Monster Land

both loose for $2.99 a piece. So in the end it only cost me $2 of my money. Sadly, the cart labels had some writing on them, and using rubbing alcholol didn't work too great. Ah well, they are still OK for my collection.

And if he's referring to the boxes with the paper insert for each game, you can ask around at video stores...they usually have boxes and manuals from games that were not returned or were damaged, etc.  Some places may just give them to you since they throw them away anyway.

Asphalt: Urban GT (complete)

Onto the other purchases:

Qix (loose) - trade with Kamino

I got a nice lot today.

A boxed Mega Drive 2 in very good condition for £4.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/fibblewith/Picture132.jpg)

Then I saw a few Master System games and realised there was a whole table of them. Some of them had Gamestation £1.99 BOGOF stickers on them, so I was thinking they'd be selling them for a profit. They were actually £1 each, or £35 for the lot. :D:D And that included the boxed console. There are 44 or 45 games but I think one of the boxes has no cartridge. I've already got seven of these, which isn't bad.

Great find! I love things like this.

Pitfall was £4.21 from ebay.

The rest was from Cauterize on Digital Press. That cost me about £10 cash. (Super Bomberman 2, which I bought for £4, and £6 for 3 mega cd games and the Gameboy Game Genie, which ended up only paying for postage) I think that turned out to be quite a good deal. :)

I got an NES, at last! It wasn't a steal, but at £16 I'm happy. My only other options were ebay, £25-£30 for a loose one, or Gamestation, £35 for a loose one. It worked fine first time with TMHT. But then I tried it again and I can't get TMHT to work at all. My other five games work without any problems. I've opened the cartridge up and given the contacts a good scrub, but that didn't work. ??? Strange... (Edit: Forget that, it's working now.)

I also got Streets of Rage 2 from the same person, Cauterize, for £5.50.

While I'm here: From eBay came Sub Terrania for the Genesis. I seem to remember someone saying it's a crap game but I like it.

I'm waiting for a Sonic 3 guide book. I read through the auction a few times before bidding (which ended up being in the last 6 seconds) but I completely missed the bit that said "Will send out within four days". Oh well, it was there, so I can't complain.  :P It just means a bit of a longer wait.

I think they're as common as any other cheat device. IIRC, they were made by a British company, so they're probably more common in Britain than in America.


(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/fibblewith/Picture116-1.jpg)
Sonic - 50p
Xbox magazines - 10 for £2
The New Zealand Story, Bubble Bobble, The Legend of Zelda, and Megaman X2 were all £4 each. The guy wouldn't budge because he was "selling them for someone else".

I went to two car boot sales this morning. They were both much bigger than usual.

The first one must have had around 200-300 sellers.  I didn't get much but it wasn't a complete waste. I got Tomb Raider: Legend for the Xbox for £5 (Looks brand new). A green N64 controller for £1, and a little Sonic figure for 20p. I don't know how I managed to spot Sonic. I was walking past a stall with no games, and nothing game related but somehow it caught my eye.

The £4-a-game man I said about before was there. He wanted £25 each for his consoles. A beat up NES with skidmarks on it, a Mega Drive, a Saturn, a Dreamcast, and a PS1, all loose. He's clearly just buying games cheap and reselling them but obviously doesn't know their values.

At the second car boot sale, all I got was Chuck Rock for the Game Gear for 50p. With the entry fee it ended up being £1.

Someone wanted £15 for a Gameboy Pocket with a carry case. Somehow they sold it just as I was going to ask the price. I overheard them say they couldn't possibly go under £15.

Someone else was selling loads of modern games and a few older ones. I either had the new ones, or they weren't interesting. They also wanted £20 for a PSOne and £25 for a loose Pokemon N64.

I spotted a solitary N64 game I sort of wanted. But it had chewing gum and writing all over it. The guy wanted £4 but wouldn't go lower than £3. I could cope with the writing, but the chewing gum put me right off.

People in my area seem to think their crap is worth more than it is.

Hey, no problem, sailorneorune...congrats on those by the way.  I found SotN for $4 this past summer as well (GH version though)....great game, as is BG&E.  It seems this game has been going for approx. $30 on ebay...probably because of that little article in an EGM about critically acclaimed games that flopped (also included psychonauts).

Finds today at Sears:

Meteos (DS) $7 (marked 29.99----go there and have the clerk ring this game up if you need it)

Final Fantasy I & II (GBA) $5...(went a few stores over in the mall to Babbages or EB Games and they had it cart only, used, for $26 ;) )

Edit: Also, I just worked out a deal on another message board for Castlevania Double Pack CIB, Polarium (DS) CIB, and Trace Memory (DS) CIB.  $35 shipped....I will let you all know when (and if) I get these.

Good games that aren't for the PS2, Xbox, or GBA are often neglected by the general public around here, so I scooped these up in the hopes of them going to someone who will actually play them. I've got 'em both in my collection already.  ;D

Plus, I like to support kick-ass independently owned game stores like Book Broker.  :freakboy:

Got Adventure Island 3 and Slalom for 10 euro.  Both were supposed to be NTSC, but turns out only Adventure Island 3 is, and Slalom is PAL (but with oval seal)...oh well, did it for AI 3 anyway :)

Went to help one of my mom's friends prep for a yard sale yesterday afternoon, and walked away with a N64 with 3 controllers (2 purple, 1 green) and 3 games (Magical Tetris, Yoshi's Story, Mario Kart 64), as well as a PS2 controller that can probably be saved with liberal application of electrical tape.

The cost? $10, but it was for a good cause, as one of my friends called me immediately afterward to inform me that... she was looking for a N64. :o

Coincidence? Maybe.

Not really sure, I know that I have never run across one before (I do see the dreamcast ones every now and then)  They may have been on the shelves of a store I was in before but that fact that it looks like a normal kbd means you really have to look close to know it's made by Sega and not just a black PC kbd.

I went into town to check out the game shops but found nothing interesting. Gamestation had a loose Super Mario Land for the Gameboy for £9!

I thought I'd check out Cash Generator for the first time. They had a lot of games, but no marked prices. They must have had 30-40 Master System games, but they were all sports games. From there I got these for £2 each:

Silpheed (Mega CD, complete)
Top Gun (NES, loose)
GameShark (N64 Loose)

I overpaid for Top Gun, but the overall price made it ok.


While I was in a magazine shop I noticed the headline on a local newspaper saying something about making my work area an alcohol free zone. I bought it and the cafe I work in was mentioned in the article! The sentence was something like "People are often discouraged from going into places such as [some solicitors place] and [The cafe] because of drunks hanging around outside".

It's raining lightly this morning but I thought I would go to the local car boot sale anyway. There were a few people there but the only games were some PS2 ones that I wasn't interested in.

I got a Super Mario Brothers skateboard for £1.50. When I got home I thought "Why the Hell did I buy that?" I really don't know what to do with it now.

Cool, is it a full-size skateboard?  I just bought a mario on a skateboard figure new in package from the UK the other day :) 

If it's a full-size skateboard, it's probably similar to when I bought the Super Mario World game chair for 2.50 euro.  Cool item at first, but now it takes up a lot of room and it's not being used or anything.  ;)

you could probably sell or trade it for some decent money, seeing as there are lots of Mario collectors out there, especially for larger and rare items like that.

From three diffferent people. The games are all complete and in very good condition.

1)Mega Drive games - £1 each.

2)Master System Games - £1 each.

3)The gun was £1.50.


I asked how much the Master System games were and was told to make an offer. I said 75p each. He wrinkled his nose up and said he wanted £3 each but had to get rid of them, so he said he'd accept £1 each. Clearly a load of bollocks to make me pay more but £1 is ok.

I spend far too much time in Gamestation. I went in today to trade in my old DS for a Lite. I also took a bunch of spare games to trade in, not expecting much value. The manager said "I can't give you much but because you're a regular I can give you a bit more credit."

So I traded in 10 Master System games and got £7.50! The normal trade-in credit is only 50p each, unless they're rare ones. He wouldn't take my PSOne because they had lost the remote for the tv, so he couldn't tune it in to test it. That would have been another £5 off.:( I was going to trade in some PS1 games, expecting £1 each, which is the base value in the other Gamestation. But they had too many PS1 games and not enough space, so he only offered 50p and said I would be beter off trading them into the other Gamestation. With a few of other games traded in, I got £13 off.

With the old DS credit (£45), I got £58 off. The Lite was £100, or £110 with any game, so I got Yoshi Touch and Go. I ended up paying £52, then.

I took a PSOne and a bunch of games to the Gamestation in town and got £24.50 credit. They didn't have anything worth buying so I went over to the other one with my credit note.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/fibblewith/IMG_0170.jpg)

Clu Clu Land and Pinball are almost mint.

I noticed the Master System Converter was marked as £4.99 when it has been £14.99 for a long time. I asked if the price was right and I got it for £4.99.

Disregarding the fact that I spent money on what I traded in, I spent 45p on all of it.

Honestly....I spent about a total of $110 on my last 30 or so DS games.

I went to a ton of yard sales in the last 2 weeks and cleaned house.  I found a total of 15 GC games, 14 XBox games, and 23 PS2 games.  Every single one of the games were absolutely terrible, so I took them to EB for the trade in 3 get and extra $10 trade-in credit.  Now you can see how I got the DS games so cheap :-P

I went over to Gamestation this morning to use my credit note from yesterday. They didn't have any old games I wanted. :-\

I got Brain Training for the DS £17, with £4.50 left over in credit.

While I was in the area I went into PC World to have a look at PC prices. They were all very high for what they were. One of them was £800 with only a 2.2Ghz processor and 512mb RAM. I looked at the games and got Sims 2: Open for Business for £14 and The Movies for £5.

I got two really cool NES multicarts today and yesterday!! 

One is a 200-in-1 and happens to have an original game on it called Elf Load...with some great graphics and music.  I searched the web but couldn't find anything on it, so that's kinda cool. 

Another one is a 9999-in-1 that has only 5 games on it, but it's not the games that set this one apart.  This one has a skit that plays off as you move from one page (containing 20 games each) to the next....pretty cool.  I'll take some screenshots sometime soon.

It was at a lighthouse mission thrift store.  The same spot just last weekend where I came across seven genesis games for .50 a piece.  It was laying there in a milk crate all sad and lonely.  I took it home and cleaned it up (exterior cleaning).  Hooked it up and powered on and it worked first time.  The rf and phono had to go so the next day I made a trip to radio shack and got one of those phono to coaxial connectors.  This by far is one of my best finds.

It's been kind of slow hunting lately.  I've been insanely busy at work (which explains my absence from the board), so I haven't had much time to go hunting.  When I do get a chance to go I usually opt to sleep instead.  Enough of that though.  Here's a few things I found over the last week or two

Yesterday I stopped at a Circuit City in Milwaukee and grabbed Mega Man X Collection for PS2 for $18.

During the last weekend, I found out a store I used to go to for comics and action figures sells video games as well.  From there I got a blue label Space Shuttle for the 2600 for $3.50 and I finally got a Colecovision.  I overpayed for it ($40), but I don't mind overpaying in a indy store.

Right after that I went to another Circuit City and picked up The Legend of Zelda:  The Complete Animated Series and The Super Mario Bros. Super Show 1st season for $45 total.  The Super Mario Shows are a lot cheesier than I remember.   ;D

Other than the above the only video game related purchases I've made was to put down reservations on Final Fantasy 12, Final Fantasy 3, Guitar Hero 2, and Legend of Zelda:  Twilight Princess for the Wii.  Yes, I've made the decision to buy the Wii at launch.

PacMan Tengen Liscensed

Well me and the woman went to Gurnee Mills last night and we went to the Sears there.  I picked up Ninja Gaiden for the Xbox for $10.  I than saw Chibi Robo there and saw it didn't have a price so I decided to look the price up seeing everyone had been saying you have to check the price at the register because there prices were not marked right.  Guess how much it was?  $15!!!  I got Chibi Robo for the Gamecube for $15.  Every place else they still want $50!  Great deal in my eyes! :)

Today I found a 5200 Roller Controler, Joystick and Power Supply all for $4.99.  The Roller Controller is in nice shape for a loose one, the metal strip across the front still has the covering that comes on it when it ships.

I also picked up a video "Battlevision - Doom on you" by tiger.  Looks to be some kind of interactive video kinda like Captain Power but I can't find out any info on what/how you interact or play with it.  I did find a couple listed on ebay (this one has a pic and the synopsys from the back: http://cgi.ebay.com/DOOM-ON-YOU-BATTLEVISION-INTERACTIVE-TAPE-VHS_W0QQitemZ220025069749QQihZ012QQcategoryZ309QQssPageNameZWD1VQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem )
 but they were no help.  Anyone ever hear of these?  I guess I should throw it in the VCR and see if it give more info on the tape.

That VHS thing is probably the same design as a lot of various casino game VHS tapes i posted a couple weeks ago.

My guess is it will run on any 4 head VCR like the casino game VHS tapes.

If that is the case we will have to add a Misc - VHS console listing.
We have a misc DVD listing right now but i don't know if the DVD games we were told about were added or not.
As we did not have the console designation until much later.

Book & Music Exchange super sale phase 2: Henderson.  :ninja:

Today I brought home a new addition to my portable game system collection: a Game Gear.

With it, came a battery pack (which may not be working...), an AC adapter, and 6 1/2 games: Ristar, Sonic 2, Sonic Chaos, Super Columns, Psychic World, Ecco the Dolphin, and Streets of Rage on the outside, Spiderman vs. the Kingpin on the inside.

I got all that, an Action Replay Duo, an N64 controller pak, a PC controller, a PS1 memory card, and a complete RE Code Veronica for a little over $30.

So now not only am I looking for good NGPC games, I'm also looking for good Game Gear games... sheesh.

Sounds like a plan.  I ran the tape and the into shows how to setup your Battlevision Base to interact with the tape as it's played.  The Base looks to be about 3 feet long with towers, guns and a big red dome in the middle.  I still think it's strange I can't find any information on it. 

Along the same lines I also have a set of VHS tapes and a handheld unit for Wheel of Fortune.  That could go in the same catagory with the others.

I got some nice stuff today.
At Goodwill I got a Aura Interactor, which is basically a large speaker that you wear on your back and you can feel the sounds coming from the Genesis or SNES (systems it was designed for)  but also works with N64 and GCN.  It's CIB and doesn't look like it was used more than once.  And for good reason, you don't have any video, you can only listen and feel the games.  But it does make a nice back massager since you can also hook it up to anything with a headphone jack.   Anyway, it was $10.


Also got a very nice score on some N64 stuff. 
Black console
All hookups
Rumble Pak
Atomic Purple controller
Grey controller
Nascar 99 (CIB)
Goldeneye 007  (CIB)
007 world is not enough (CIB)
Sarge's heroes 1 and 2
WCW vs NWO
Twisted edge
NFL Blitz
Star wars episode 1 racer
Wave race 64
$10 for everything.  Box was marked $25.00 for everything or $2 each game and $20 for system.  And marked again as $10 for everything or 50 cents each game.

Post by: NES_Rules on October 07, 2006, 03:07:54 PM

Megaman NT Warrior - Tourch Soul battle chip with action figure

I don't know anythign about it really and haven't looked it up online yet but i assume it is some sort of tmagotchi type thing.
It apparently has a main "system" and "battle chips" that you can swap into said system.

It was 75cents marked down from 3$s.

Got the following games for a total of around 26 euro shipped from an ad-site:

Star Trek:  The Next Generation (CIB) NTSC
New Ghostbusters II (CIB) PAL-exclusive
Parodius (loose) PAL-exclusive

Odd thing about the NTSC game is that it had a sticker and price sticker from a Dutch toystore on it that isn't known to import games from other regions, from what I've heard.  The copy has CAN-1 on the backlabel, and even has the precautions in Spanish on it (not sure if this is normal for CAN back-labels?)...so that's a bit odd.

I also managed to pick up 25 dust sleeves for 12,50 euro shipped (these generally sell for 1 euro a piece excluding shipping here, so I'm really happy with that price), and I just bought another batch of more than 160 Nintendo manuals (NES/SNES/GB/N65) and ~30 boxes with inlays...primarily to scan for RFGen, and I got a pretty good deal on them (45 euro shipped for them all) :)

My Crash Bandicoot & Spyro the Dragon back to school kit came this week. It was some mail in offer my wife saw on a box of microwave popcorn. It came with a folder, pencil case, ruler, notepad, eraser, pencil sharpener and 3 pencils. Pretty cool collectable.

my recent finds:

Plug n Play - Radica Play TV Football - $2.92 - this is one has a matt for foot control and a little football with sensors in it for passes. I need to find directions, I haven't quite figured out all the controls.

Mattel Football - $.95 - the original LED masterpiece, not that crappy backlit LCD remake.

Genesis - Spider-Man w/box - $2.99

N64 - Legend Of Zelda Ocarina OF Time CIB - $2.92

PS1 - Beyond The Beyond w/box - $1.91, Final Fantasy IX w/box - $3.93

and finally...

a funny story.

Someone was trying to trade in a SNES at Book Broker, but they only take in a system if it has all the necessary hookups. Since there was no power cord, the Broker guys passed on the SNES. I was eyeing the copy of Link to the Past that Book Broker DID take in for trade, and the person trading in the game looked at me, and looked at the box with the SNES in it, and said, "You want this? I'll give it to you." I said yes, because I have spare SNES hookups. ;D Included were the system, which I am in the process of cleaning, 2 first-party controllers, a set of AV cables, an RF switch, and some extras: a Nuby Saturn/PS1 light gun, a Quick Shot NES joystick, and a case and manual for Luigi's Mansion.

Taken verbatim from my post on DP because I'm tired.

Dirty Pair is actually a venerable sci-fi anime series based on a series of stories writen by Japanese author Haruka Takachiho. The main characters, Kei and Yuri, are called the Dirty Pair because of their reputation for massive collateral damage whenever they solve a crime.

So I responded to an add on craigslist for a super nintendo with 29 games and 5 controllers for $40, no pictures or gmaes listing though.  I met up with the kid and bought his lot of SNES stuff and he said he also had some NES games, so I bought all of them too.  I skimmed over the SNES stuff quickly and saw Super Mario RPG and was pretty pleased.

But when I got home I noticed I had just bought...

Almost had Dragon Warrior II last night.  I was at the checkout at my local game store.  Some lady had just brought in a whole crap of sega genesis and nes games.  What do I see but a minty boxed copy of Dragon Warrior 2.  I motion to my friends behind the counter like you would to a teacher.  They just nod and smile.  The lady that brought it in was paid and I went and rummaged through the stuff before it went behind the counter.  I grabbed out the Dragon Warrior II without opening the box.  I paid 2.50 for it and grabbed my other purchases.  I went to the truck to open it and lo and behold some crap game was in there.  I took it back in and got me another game and they allowed me to keep the box and instructions.  Now all I need is a orphan.  8-(

Here is my other finds

Ecco The Tides of Time~Gen 2.50
Bonanza Bros.~Gen 2.50
Road Rash III~Gen 2.50
Milon's Secret Castle~NES 2.50
Kung Fu~NES Free
Ghost & Goblins~NES Free
Dragon Warrior II Box and Inst.
Super Mario Bros/Duck Inst.

Greetings,

Couple of finds.

Weekend:

NES Games Case with:
110 in 1 Cart
King of Kings Black Cart
Exodus-Journey ?? Black Cart
MT Punchout
Pac-Man

Paid $10 for case and all games

Monday Night:

Lot of NES, Game Gear, SNES, N64 games, 50 games in total.  Paid $55 for the whole lot.  Got it home and am excited to see that there was a N64 Smash Bros, and at the very bottom of the bag a Kid Icarus cart and an Action 52.

Tuesday Night:

NES System Minus Cords, Controllers, and 15 Games - $3

Not too bad i guess.  I have my good weeks where it seems i find all kinds of stuff and others where i see nothing.

I ordered a matte black 360 faceplate on Sunday and it came today. I was against faceplates before but I love matte black, and for £5 a couldn't resist.

I'm still waiting for HMV to send my VGA cable off. They've been slow in the past. I only used them because I found a 20% off code, so i got £3.60 (lol?) off.

Amazon has a delivery estimate of the 3rd to the 16th of November for my PC monitor.:(

Very good finds atrachsel

I agree very nice.
I third that!! :)

What color is the board inside the Action 52 case?  There's a few variations of it, some more rare.  If it's green, you should be able to see a "Rev." A, B, or C on it.  I think Rev. A and Rev. B are the most common, Rev. C a bit rarer, black board without Rev even more rare, and solid blue label (instead of transparent label) is the most rare.  ;)

A miniature Nintendo Gamecube with candies of some sort inside.

Mario Power Tennis bubble gum thing. It is basically a tiny version of a gamecube gamebox.

Donkey Kong Klik smarties candy dispenser.

I also grabbed the boxes for the Gamecube candy thing and the Kliks candy things.

I got them all at iParty(all purpose party/costume store).

I kinda want to go back and grab the last of the nintendo candy products.
There are still yoyos of some kind with candy in them, those GBAs filled with gummies, lolipops with nintendo character holder and another candy filled gamecube.

All of them are of course made by Au'some candies.
