I'm seeing an ad where a guy is selling a load of PS1 rarities mixed in with some junk for $4 each.

I'm thinking its got to be some kind of scam or something or the guy is going to show up and rob you. I sent an email, but I told the guy that the stuff he's selling is worth a lot more than he's selling it for, but i'd still be interested.

Well I am a little late on it, it's been up for a few hours while i was at class. I told the guy his stuff was worth more than $4 and I'd pay more than that hoping that if he's legit he'd go with me over the other people who probably emailed not saying anything about the value.

I don't want to pay ebay values but even doing something like $50 on that suikoden 2 would be a steal if its complete.

There was this time a girl was selling a game for $5 a pop, or 5 for $20. We picked up Lunar complete and Tales of Destiny 2, and three other less impressive games.

Our guess was that her bf cheated on her.

The guy did email back and stated he has been in the military for some amount of years and didn't know that these things had collected value since then. He thanked me for being honest and said he had sold a few games and someone offered him $50 for Suiko2 already.

Seems legit, but Suiko2 was the only one I really wanted :( I realize there are other rarities there but i tend not to collect stuff I won't play unless its longboxes on PS1.

Saw an ad for this for $80. Sent an email and woke up the next morning to "Hi Chris, I have had 8 other emails about this lot, whats your best offer?". I felt comfortable with $120 so thats what I offered. 30 mins later he said why dont we settle for $100! I cleaned everything and it all starts on the first try and everything saves.

Found some decent but common N64 games.
F-Zero X (complete with box)
Diddy Kong Racing
Chameleon Twist
Resident Evil 2
Donkey Kong 64

All for $30. Nothing amazing, but good additions to my N64 collection.

I found a sealed copy of Metroid 2: Return of Samus w/ a 15 other gameboy games for $20. If anyone in RI wants to do a trade let me know. For some reason there was 2 copies of the game in the lot one was open and the other was sealed. I figured I would get rid of the sealed copy for something cool that I've been looking for.

2 Game Boy Advance SPs (one blue, one pink)
Pokemon FireRed AND Emerald
Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario 3
Donkey Kong Country
Some random casual kiddie game...

Paid $20. I've bought from the kid before, so I knew he'd be reliable. There's a few scratches on the case of both GBs, but the screens are crystal clear and they both work. He only had one charger, so I'll have to do some parts shopping, but for $20? Worth it.

I had a pretty good C-list story today. A guy posted Shenmue Collector's Edition for $10. I had never heard there was a CE version (comes with a marking on the case and manual and a soundtrack CD) and I saw it was a R6 on digit press so I bit at it. I asked him to bring any other game he wanted to get rid of and I'd take a look. Guy pulls up and starts talking video games with me and gives me the copy of Shenmue. He then shows me this bag of GB games / GBA that has an import (turns out knockoff) Samurai Shodown, Castlevanie COM, Zelda Oracle of Ages, Pokemon Gold, Onimuha Tactics and Super Bust a move and a Game boy pocket. I had $20 on me and figured I could get a few of the games of. He said I can take everything for $20 which was awsome. He then shows me this other bag and says its included. Inside this bag was a few strategy guides (MGS 3, Halo 2, Sonic Adventure), boxes and manuals to all the games (except the bootleg), and at the bottom a Vanguard Bandits Strategy Guide! If you've never seen those PSOne Working Designs guides, they are pretty cool with features and have a decent value. He also a Gold Master Chief ( which is apparently hard to find) and Solid Snake action figure he said I could have but I was feeling bad he kept giving me stuff so I turned it down.

A pretty decent haul, he had some Gundam stuff he is selling to a buddy of mine so when we meet up I'm going to give him one of my extra dreamcasts (I got 7 of them in a random C-list lot) and a few games as the guy said he missed his dreamcast that he had to sell.

I think you must be joking, but..

emulators suck. they're inaccurate. BSNES is the only good one and you need like, a core i7 to really run the accuracy version at full speed. All the others don't emulate properly..

Guy posted 20 ps1 games for $10 yesterday, too bad they were all sports and kids junk :(

He was obviously being sarcastic. However, you're statement is pretty far out there. Hell, I ran plenty of SNES emulators on my old 700mhz Compaq Presario. Even my PSP emulates SNES just fine. Maybe you could expand on your comment a little?

Spoiler


just kind of interesting stuff. I never did mess around with emulators much unless it was unreleased stuff but yeah, most emulators really don't feel the same as the original console hardware, because they're basically hacked together with all kinds of shortcuts.

I'm not anti-emulator by any means, but there's something much, much more satisfying about playing games in their original form, on their original consoles.

But I'm biased - I'm a collector. I have this NEED for stacks of physical cartridges. :)

I agree to a point. There is something incredibly satisfying about not just getting your hands on a physical cartridge or disc, but getting to play it.

But my love of emulators comes from the fact that they were the only way I could play certain games, because like most Americans, my Japanese sucks. I was able to play Seiken Densetsu 3, Mother 3 (which I was playing until I had to replace my hard drive), and Terranigma that way. Whether the translations are good or bad, I can't say, but I was able to enjoy them because of it. That, and my budget is not what it was a few years ago. Emulators are pretty much my only way to enjoy those classics.

Most emulators don't actually emulate the console they claim to very well. They take a lot of shortcuts and hacks that cause a lot of games to display incorrectly, have bad sound, not act like they do on a console, etc. BSNES emulates the super nintendo on a much, much more detailed scale. Because of that my dual core 2.3 mhz laptop just barely hits 60 FPS most of the time when using the "performance" build. The "compatability" build which is near 100% accurate to what you'd get from a real SNES requires a much more powerful computer. 4GHZ at least, I think.

That is interesting stuff. Surprising, because my Compaq also even emulated the N64 fairly decently, as I played SM64 and Diddy Kong Racing through without any problems. Of course, not all N64 games were that compatible. And this was back 10 years ago. I guess I'll just put it this way and say, that to most people, for most games, they won't recognize the subtle differences that an emulator lacks from the real thing, other than the controller.

Have you yourself tried SNES9X? If not, I'd highly recommend it if you have the SNES itch. I'd be surprised if you found it anything but enjoyable.

Totally agreed. If I had the money, I'd spring for an SNES/NES flash cart to handle translated games. I still feel like it's only fair for me to buy the original Japanese carts beforehand, even though it's a pain. I need to make some friends in Japan.. or stop struggling with my morals. :lol:
