Technically, I bought them at the end of last month, aka yesterday(from the Blockbuster B1G1 sale):

007: Quantum Of Solace(360): $14.99
Grand Theft Auto IV(PS3): FREE

Flipped both with my copy of Folklore I had from the Sears clearance to GS for Fight Night Round 4, which I promptly returned with a gift receipt to get $63.59 in credit put onto my EDGE card.:D

Now I just need to figure out what I wanna buy with it, a spare DS 3.....or Sacred 2.....or just sit on the credit for a while and wait till both are available used and a bit cheaper to be able to get BOTH.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Only two months left of Summer?! Thank God! I hate Summer. More importantly, only six months left in this decade. Feeling old yet?!

I bought Smackdown vs Raw 2009 at Target for 12.95 which is awesome. I was about to get it for 27 dollars. Up next will be Lips for 12.95, because I've really wanted to get that and 12 dollars is just too good to pass up.

Lots of pickups today.

SEARS:

:ps2: Metal Gear Solid Essential Collection - $29.99

Yeah, I know I paid full price for it, but it was kind of hard to find in my area. This marks the fifth time I've bought Metal Gear Solid 2.

GAMESTOP:
(sorted by different store)

:ps2: Tokobots Plus - $4.99
:ps2: Zone of the Enders - $4.99

:wii: Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom preorder - $5

Picked up Tokobots Plus because it looked interesting, as I'd never seen it before, and was told it was a port of a PSP game that was good at $30, so I couldn't really pass it up. Also, I finally found a copy of Zone of the Enders with the Metal Gear Solid 2 demo in the wild. The discs and case are pristine, as well. It also helps that I love Zone of the Enders.

:xbox: Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge - $2.24
:ps2: Gungrave Overdose - $3.99

I picked up Crimson Skies because of all the praise it gets, and it was so damn cheap. I'm on a continuing search to locate both Gungrave games, and it so much easier to find the sequel than to find the original. I did find it at one store, but it was in a generic case. No thanks.

:ps2: Suikoden IV - $8.99

The one store that I remembered to use my Edge card! I only went there because another store told me they had the original Gungrave, but this was the store that had it in a generic case. While flipping through their games, I noticed none of them had manuals. Apparently, manual theft is a big deal at this GS, so they keep them behind the counter with the games. Have any of you guys ever heard of a GS doing this?

These were end of June/beginning of July pick ups for the most part.

Xbox 360 Elite. Came with original box and manuals, two controllers and 16 games (some of which were actually pretty good titles) - $275

Some of the games included in the bundle were, Resident Evil 5, Halo 3, Left 4 Dead, Dead Rising, The Darkness, Halo 2, etc.

--------

BlazBlue Limited Edition (360) & SF4 TE Fight Stick (360) - I believe I only spent like $70 out of my pocket, the rest was covered by TIV which essentially came from a bunch of games and a wireless controller from the Elite bundle that I picked up earlier in the week.

-----------

Fable 2 (sealed) - $12 off a fellow CAG

-----------

Macally Macbook case - $22 off of Amazon. Very nice case. It has a soft suede interior to protect your Macbook from scratches and a nice leather exterior to protect from other damages. Very good quality case, especially for the price. I recommend it to any fellow CAG's looking for their money's worth on a Macbook case.

-----------------

Silicone Macbook keyboard casing - $14 off of Amazon. Not as good of quality as I was hoping for, but it gets the job done I guess lol

Think that's about it for now, but the month is young

use it on bayonetta or COD Modern warfare 2


What is Bayonetta? The next game(s) I'm looking forward to are: I Am Alive(the idea of falling debris killing you has be intrigued to see how I can use it on enemies) and God Of War 3. Otherwise, I really don't see any games on the horizon that I'm that interested in.

I hate the Final Fantasy games, can't stand the fighting games like Street Fighter and I mostly can't stomach turn based games(though I have a copy of Civ Rev for PS3 I'm gonna give a fair shot, for $10 from Sears it's worth it).

Only two months left of Summer?! Thank God! I hate Summer. More importantly, only six months left in this decade. Feeling old yet?!

I bought Smackdown vs Raw 2009 at Target for 12.95 which is awesome. I was about to get it for 27 dollars. Up next will be Lips for 12.95, because I've really wanted to get that and 12 dollars is just too good to pass up.


At least your Target has those games on clearance. My closest Target still has copies of SD vs Raw 08 for PS3 sitting in the case for MSRP, I believe. Weren't those clearanced out already?

They ended up not having any of the other clearance games. I was really hoping for Lips too. Oh well. I did buy Anno 1701 for the pc and LifeLine for the PS2 recently.

Had a nice haul today at the local flea market before work:

-Revenge of Shinobi Sega Classic Version (complete) GEN
-The Lion King (boxed) GEN
-Sonic (boxed but with a golden axe ii manual :roll:) GEN
-Sonic 2 (Complete with 2 manuals :D) GEN
-Kirby's Avalance (cart) SNES
-Kirby's Adventure (cart) NES
-Spy Hunter (cart) NES
TOTAL: $15
First guy had a bunch of games for $3-5 each. I grabbed a bunch of games CIF $10 he countered with $20. I countered with $15. He said no. Started to walk away and he changed his mind. :D

-Jurassic Park (complete) GEN
-Dick Tracy (Boxed) GEN
-Sonic 3 (Cart) GEN
-6-Pak (cart) GEN
TOTAL: $8
Second person had Genesis games for $3 each, I offered $8, they accepted. Left a bunch of sports games.

-Sonic & Knuckles (cart) GEN
-Shinobi III (cart) GEN
TOTAL: $5

Third person had a bunch of Madden 90 somethings and other sports games. Picked these 2 out CIF'd $5 which was accepted.

I saw another vendor with good genesis games (Strider, Vectorman 1/2, Strider, Comix Zone, and so on but at $15 each and immune to CIF, I had to pass)

I think it was a pretty good haul for me even though it's not as good as some. I wanted to started a Genesis collection recently and I think this gave me a good start. I got the 4 main sonic games and some other good games.

Grabbed a 360 Arcade and PSP Rock Band Bundle from Amazon thanks to the trade-in program, as well as the live starter kit from Wal-Mart. Via goozex: Halo 3, Crackdown, Fight Night 3, Gears of War, and Left 4 Dead. Via CAG trade: Dead Rising and Braid through XBLA.

So I now have 2 PS3s, a Wii, a 360, a DSlite and a PSP. I guess I can, in theory, play almost any console game ever made yet I really only dedicate about 10 hours a week to gaming (mostly handheld)... almost seems a waste, but the convenience is wonderful.
