If you haven't trampled an old lady or a small child on black Friday, then you're not doing it right.

Forgot to post my October stuff, so...

Couple of pick ups. One major, one minor. Minor first. Got the Duke Nukem Forever collector's edition guide from an ebay seller for $10 shipped. Not bad!

And the big one. Gift from my sister! I realize there are some white specs in the pictures. I'm not sure if these are actually on the shoes or just from my camera because they don't show up in person (and I looked pretty close after noticing them on the pictures).This is a pair of Adidas Gil II Zero Halo sneakers, which is a Gilbert Arenas shoe. Only 100 pairs of these shoes were ever made. The pair is a size 10 (my size), and I did try them on once. But I dont know if i'll ever wear these, i don't want to ruin them. Right now I have them stored in the shoebox. The shoe box is signed by Gilbert Arenas as well. The shoes are extremely detailed, featuring the Halo 3 logo, as well as many of the game's weapons.

I guess it compounds itself even more when the old lady getting trampled is white.

Adidas made a metric ass ton of variations of those Gil shoes. I guess Adidas knew to strike while the iron was hot since Arenas has since been a bum the past couple of seasons.

But yeah, I'm really looking forward to CAG's pick ups this month!

I didn't say they made 100 pairs in general. They made 100 pairs of this style.

Allow me to elaborate. I meant Adidas made a huge collection (roughly 10+) of Gil II Zero shoes with some being general release while others being rare like your Halo edition. There are actually kids only versions with Tweety bird and Bugs Bunny designs which showed how Adidas really went all out on trying to sell the shoes to every demographic.

I've been reading up more on the Roku. I pay $60 a month for cable, and other than random channel surfing on the weekend, all I usually only use it to watch Adult Swim before I go to sleep. I have Netflix and Amazon Prime (so free Video Streaming) so it really makes no sense to keep cable anymore.

It was one of the Gamefly daily deals. With any luck I'm sure they'll do another sale eventually with some highlights of pass deals brought back if you missed it.

I don't have Cable. Actually, I haven't had it for a long time. In addition to Netflix and Amazon, I also use Hulu Plus. The nice thing about Hulu Plus is that you can get 3 months free using Bing Rewards every 2 months or so (I've only paid for one month so far). Also, if you buy it from Sams Club you get your first two months for free along with a free HDMI Cable.

I like my Roku and it's pretty easy for me to recommend it. However, I am not so sure the $99 model is worth it. Angry Birds is fun, but the $70/80 models probably work just fine. I mainly got the $99 one because it had a game controller and because it is the only one with an Ethernet port.

I'll be picking up Lord of the Rings War in the North Collector's Edition for 360 when I get out of work today. We'll see what else Gamestop has in the way of trades. I'm also stopping by my local used record shop. He's usually got some stupid cheap games.

I'll report back tonight!

Cartoon Orbit postcard! Less than $5 shipped on ebay, this was a no brainer for me. I was HEAVILY into this game when it was still around. A long time ago I bought an Orbit t-shirt from ebay and I still have it. Anyway, here are front and back pictures:

Can't say I'd pay $5 for just a postcard, but oh man, I LOVED Cartoon Orbit. I don't know why because it was so pointless, but I really got sucked into collecting cToons. I had an extremely impressive collection of the little things. Well, impressive to anyone who cared. Makes me wish we still had access to those old accounts.

Dude, me too. I was so into it. CNOC, Toonsville, ETCC, Techman's...I was in all of them and a few others as well. I actually have a print out of my czone and another of my entire (gigantic) collection somewhere around here. I still like looking through it from time to time and I still wear my Orbit t-shirt lol. Even if they had to close it down, i wish they at least left access to accounts in terms of collections, czones, and goons.

I had so much good stuff (8 or 9 bluebacks). My favorites were extreme sports and farming folk. Then I had a lot of other cool ones (bubbles jojo, the mange, ccf stuff, candidate huck, Betty statuette, the list goes on). Sure was fun while it lasted.

So I picked up my pre-order of Lord of the Rings War in the North Collector's Edition for :360: and while I was checking the preowned racks, someone traded the Two World's Collector's Edition, so I picked that up for 6.99. Shitty game, but can't argue with 7 bucks for a Collector's Edition that I didn't have and it was complete too.

Yay bargins!

And yesterday I cleaned K-Mart out of a bunch of $15 :360: games.
Resonance of Fate
Iron Man 2
Guitar Hero Metallica
Hunted The Demon's Forge
Front Mission Evolved
Split/Second
Enslaved Odyssey to the West
Marvel Superhero Squad The Infinity Gauntlet

Not bad for 2 days into November.

Another month, another slew of pick-ups. I'm running out of things to even pick up now, hah (and money to pick them up with. Somebody hire me and get me the Fuck out of Ohio :bomb:)

Posted Image

Was super amazed to find a complete copy of Beyond Oasis at a vintage store for $4. My absolute favorite Genesis game. I need to find a replacement cartridge holder-box-thing for it to look super-minty, but I'm still happy. PS1 games came from CAG and Chu Chu Rocket came from ebay. The GBA hunt has slowed to a trickle but I still find stuff now and again.

Posted Image

PS1/2/3/PSP stuff. PSP games are a combo of CAG and Gamestop. The Fate/Extra GS bonus is tinier than I thought it'd be but it's still fun to flip through. Finally got three big PS2 wants: the RE4 steelbook, a black label Kingdom Hearts, and Romance of the Three Kingdoms VIII. I just need RotTK XI and I'll have 'em all on PS2, but that one's the toughest to locate. Also used my Newegg $20 apology credit from the Dark Souls fiasco to get Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny for $30. The game is pure crack.

If Squarehard ever approaches you and tries to get you into anime collecting, RUN LIKE HELL IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION.

It's a sickness. And most of these box arts that are loaded with girls make all this stuff look like hentai. Frigging shameful to display en masse even though they're harmless :lol:

CoJ, Dead Space 2, Shift 2, NMH, Trinity are all from GF. I had CoJ out as a rental and the disc was in good shape so I hit the keep button on my Game Q. All discs look fantastic. Duke Nukem is still the only shitty GF game I have gotten.

Tomb Raider came from AWD for $12.

Traded in a bunch of DVDs that I upgraded to blu's into a B&M Hastings and got like $91 in credit :D so I bought Cursed Crusade & Kinect Sports Season 2. I think I am going to return both and get Uncharted 3 if they have the CE in stock still.

BF3 from GS. It has been paid off for a very long time with credit. However I have yet to put it in to play. I'm determined to finish off Final Fantasy XIII to 1K!!!

Posted Image
Stopped by a vintage store that I had not been to in a while this past weekend and found these two rare guides. Under $30 for the pair :D
Sadly the FFVII guide is missing the poster. :-(

Posted Image
Picked this one up today for $29.99+tax. Redeemed my Powerup points from the steal of the week where they made a mistake and got $10 off :D

Starting the month off pretty good.

Posted Image

Decided to jump on LotR since it was $54 with $20 in credit, and I'm a big fan of couch coop games. I got Mega Man from AWD for $7 and SMT from Amazon DotD. Lastly, Starfox 64DS from Target's B1G1 of which I sold it's accompanying game for $30, essentially costing me $15 for Starfox.


Posted Image

Probably going to drop to $50 in a month, but whatever, didn't feel like going through the hassle of finding it cheap this time.
