I hope I'm not usurping MarkMan's tradition, but I took a pic for the pick up post and realized it's not august anymore! So let's get some pics and discussion up here.

Try for real photos, not stock stuff or just lists, and talk about any deals or cheap ass prices you paid for the stuff, if possible.

Some of this stuff is august (actually all of it, but i'm posting in sept) but who's keeping track?

Beyond Good and Evil - The gamecube version, the best version, the version I've been on the lookout for for a while. $12 at gamecrazy. Pretty reasonable.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption - Incredible game, got $5 off with expired coupons at BB.

Bioshock - $40 used at Gamecrazy with 20% off coupon. I'm ready for when I get a new 360.. this thing taunts me everyday I can't play it, though.

Silent Hill 2 Greatest Hits PS2- A good $7 spent at GameCrazy for the best version of this game. Awesome horror title.

MetalStorm- NES - $6. A local store finally had a copy of this game. Very detailed graphics and smooth animation for an NES game. Basically a sidescrolling platformer where you can flip gravity at antyime, making for some creative level design. Plus the name is awesome.

Persona 3- Full price, from PSP/DS trade in bonus credit at EB. We all know how good this game is.

this thread fell on it's face. people would rather post their own threads, I suppose? this always catches on on NeoGAF, you'd think a shopping website would latch onto this concept..

I did forget to post a pic of something I got from a thrift store- A copy of the Dig, an old Lucasarts Adventure game. Maybe I'll get pics up with the next batch of purchases. It was only $4 and was complete with strategy guide.

And about BG&E, the GameCube version was the lead platform and has the best framerate, textures, and controls, IMO. The xbox version had screen tearing and the PS2 one loads slower and worse textures. I am forgetting the PC version, though. With a good gamepad that may be the best.

Technically P3 and Metroid were purchased in August, but Metroid arrived in my mailbox on 9/1, and my Family Video Persona order will likely arrive sometime in the month of September, so this is fairly accurate.

Great game, but the XBox version is the best. It has an extra side story that's quality in it's own right.

But you can read the sidestory plot on gamefaqs afterwards, so don't sweat it. ;)

Yeah, people don't buy shit. Personally, I forget to take pictures sometimes... though I should start remembering.

Oh, and in response to the doggie:

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

Yeah pretty sure the GH Silent Hill 2 added in all the restless dreams content, even the added lighting effects of the Xbox version. That's a ton of goodness there chaos..

Gonna start cutting back on purchases to save up for a plane ticket and a 360. Got a friend to visit and Halo 3 to play. Probably Halo 3 first, though..

Skygunner never was on the Dreamcast as far as I could tell. It was published by Sony in Japan and when Sony passed on it for america, atlus picked it up. It is a great game, though. Costs under $10 most places if you can find it. It's like Panzer Dragoon with the freedom of Ace Combat and goofy characters.
