My Deals of the Week October 26 - November 1, 2009
By 1NintendoFan 11-01-2009 03:04 PM
Hey everyone! I decided to post my blog a day early this week because I'm going to start my collection and setup blog, starting tomorrow. I decided instead of posting two in a row it would be easier to just post this today and start the other tomorrow. I know its a little early and stores will still be open for a few more hours, but I don't think I will be getting anymore this week, so I should be okay
This week was pretty slow in terms of pick ups. I've still been watching for a Gameboy Advance SP, but as of now, I've not found anything. I've been watching eBay (which has actually been a little slow with SPs as well), but all the auctions either have SPs that are really beat up, or they go way too high (sometimes both) and I checked at Gamestop and Play N Trade, but they still have the same ones in stock as before that are pretty scratched, so I will keep watching.
For this week, my only pick up was from Play N Trade. When I first started on CAG I was totally addicted to buying any game I found on clearance that I had at least a little interest in. Then, I got over that and discovered Play N Trade, now, I can't walk out of the store without buying at least one game, which isn't much better than buying all the clearance games. I've already bought 2 games I have on other systems (and were barely worth owning for one system, let alone two ) and have several games that really weren't worth getting. So now, I need to try and stop buying every time I go in. I really like the store and it has been fun looking for and buying all the games, so it isn't too bad, but I should cut back a little! But, anyway, what I did get was:
Tak The Great Juju Challenge $4.99
Scooby-Doo! Mystery Mayhem FREE
Game & Watch Gallery 2 Gameboy $4.99
Donkey Kong Gameboy $4.99
Overall, I like all the games from the time I've spent with them. I have played two Tak games before and really liked them, so when they finally had a good price on one that was complete and in good shape, I decided to get it. I thought $5 was a decent price. They were running a Buy 1 Get 1 promotion and I looked three times at all the games and really couldn't find anything else I wanted. There was another Tak game, but in bad shape, so I settled on Scooby-Doo! I loved Scooby growing up and have a game on the SNES that I really liked, so I thought I would try it. After I bought it I kept thinking I already owned it, but when I checked I didn't, so I was happy. Both Gameboy games were in decent shape and ones I've been looking to get, so when I found them, I knew I better get them before they were gone.
That's it for this week, nothing great, but I've had fun with what I did get. Hopefully next week will bring some good deals and maybe an SP
If your interested, I will start posting one blog a day, starting Monday, with my gaming setups and collections. I've been wanting to do it for a while and just finally got things close to how I want them, so when it was requested that I post my setups, I thought now would be a good time and I thought it would also be nice to do something different other than a Pickup Blog for once . I don't have anything great, but it is a start and I'm working on improving them and I'm trying to add to them, but I would consider them to still be a "work in progress"
Until next time everyone
