Posted 02 December 2009 - 06:15 AM

A breakdown of my finances for those interested:

Lots of that was spent with money I made working at my job, $7.25 an hour at 20 hours a week. Only $98 of my grad money was spent on that $909. I still have $1500 in graduation money. I have around $750 of other cash to spend as well. So I have $2250 in all... Then I will get an assload more for Christmas, and my birthday 2 weeks after Christmas... Add another $1000. Maybe more.

My parents got me $223 out of that $909... So that stuff I'm gettin' for Christmas from them. Umm.. Yeah that's my finances.

Took advantage of Gamecrazy's 3 for $10 XBOX games. I went there and they didn't have much until looked around and saw a huge stack of great games. I picked out 6 and went to the register where the cashier tried to charge me $64. I mentioned that the sale was on and he said that the sale was only for games 4.99$ and under. I pointed to the sign specifying that it was for ALL used Xbox Games. Again He declined. So i pulled out the copy of the ad that i printed from my e-mail and he hesitantly reduced the price to $21.

All for XBOX All for $21

Dark Alliance
Sid Meier's Pirates
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II
Star Wars Battle Front II
Ninja Gaiden Black
Burnout Revenge

All Mint and Complete except Burnout did not have the manual.

Did your copy come with the Best Buy exclusive poster? I got my copy with it, and haven't been able to really find any copies with it anymore. It's a shame, I wanted one to hang and one to keep as a collector's item.

Excellent day today!

My cousin woke me up at 8 am this morning and asked if I wanted to go to a swap meet and I was pissed, but it turned out to be great! He wanted to go to one we had never been to before way on the edge of town that's owned by the indian reservation. This place was a dump, it looked like we were in some town in a 3rd world country, all the stores were sheds built out of pieces of scrapped plywood. There was a truck completely covered in junk that I didn't even realize there was a truck under it until I saw the wheels on the bottom, should have took a pic of that.

We also decided to hit up some pawns thrifts etc on the way back. Here's what I got:

Posted Image

That entire lot of Genesis games was $5! The guy said they have been sitting there forever and he just wanted them gone. All are complete except for Mortal Kombat II which comes with no cover art and oddly the manual for the SNES version of MKII. All have rain damaged outer boxes but the carts are excellent condition!

They are:
Ghouls N Ghosts
Phantasy Star II
Streets of Rage
NFL College Football 94
Wonder Boy in Monster World
Phantasy Star III
Dark Castle
Phantasy Star (SMS)
Whip Rush
Streets of Rage 2
Mortal Kombat II
Altered Beast
Super Street Fighter II

Here's all the other stuff I got:

Posted Image

Other stuff from the swap meet:
Ghostbusters (PS2) - $3
Parasite Eve + Phelios - $5
Gunstar Heroes missing manual - $3
Monster Rancher 3 disc only - $5
Polywhirl Pokemon Figure - $1

EZ Pawn:
Super Mario 64 - $5
Pokemon Stadium 2 - $5
Pokemon FireRed - $5
Obscure - $6
Resistance 2 - $15

Video Express:
F1 Championship Edition - $17.99

Another EZ Pawn:
F1 Championship - $10
DBZ Seasons 2 and 3 - $8 each

My World My Way gutted - $16 (used $15 GC I bought for $11)

Some Star Trek Blu Rays and some games.

Some games and some Blu Rays that were on sale at Amazon on Black Friday. The Rock Band game was supposed to be Terminator 2 on Blu Ray, but they sent me the wrong game. I'm sending it back and they shipped out the right thing.

Posted Image
Got a coupon for the Red vs Blue store so I went ahead and bought some DVDs.

Posted Image
Mystery Science Theater volume 16. Includes a Tom Servo figurine to go along with the Crow one I got like a year ago in another box set.
