Talk of pics =/= pics. I call shenanigans.

And just so I'm not contributing to the problem, pic of the "dark side" of my collection (ironically stored in a very light room unlike the rest of my collection). AKA the boneyard, AKA project limbo, AKA extra fucking crap that I don't need.

Ill take one of those dreamcasts off your hands :) nice 360s, I had 4 extra laying around in 2006. Worked at a game store, red rings that people couldn't trade in they'd leave, or give to me. Then MS changed the warranty to 3 years, got them all fixed and sold 3 of them :)

Only one of those DCs has gutty-wuts, the rest are just shells and I think I need a controller port for the one with guts...

(turns around, grabs DC)

Yup, no working controller port :(

I think I've got 3 of the those Xboxes working just fine, but for some reason I just haven't gotten around to unloading them.

my friend i've been on the internet since the days of aol 3.0 chatrooms. and this is what truly depresses me is that that photo depresses me far less than the fact ive been on the internet that long. quite frankly i wished such a photo could scare me at this point.

that said why do you know how to find that photo? that one of your stock photos you keep for lonely nights???

that said cool dreamcasts you got there.

I promised pictures of my highly UNIMPRESSIVE collection. As I said a few posts back I used to have A LOT. As of early November I actually had NOTHING but a few things I couldn't sell....

So this basically my collection since November.....I'm not a little kid, or poor, just using my funds for other purposes.

Started my collection again from scratch the day I bought this...

I also have a lot of OG Xbox games but I'm in the process of selling them to afford college books. Also have other miscellaneous older gen games sitting around, not a lot of note, and no consoles to play them on. :-(

What's the actual cartridge contacts like? I bought a used English modded Terranigma that was made by the same company and the contacts look really worn out... I don't know if that's because it's used (the item looks new) or if that's how they always are. It works fine though and I'm saving up my pennies to get Bahamut Lagoon.

I hate seeing this... people selling games to buy books. It's such a ridiculous scam. And it's only going to get worse when it goes full digital since then, you won't be able to sell your copy. Of course, people always figure out ways to get around DRM.

As I mentioned before, I ordered one of these bad boys:
http://www.walmart.c...l-Unit/17325938

It is waiting for me at Walmart right now and I'm going to pick it up in an hour or so (or tomorrow morning). Although I'll have to take down my wall shelves, I'm excited about having more shelving for my games, but I'm not quite sure how I want to organize them. Basically, I'm torn between two options: I don't know if I should maintain my current method of going left to right with games from one system flowing into another...or if I should dedicate one column to Nintendo, one to Microsoft, and one to Sony. I feel like the latter might look better and it will be easier to keep organized, but I'd have to figure out how I want to place my Atari and Sega games. Hmm, I guess I'll just figure out what I want to do once the shelves are actually set up.

And of course, I will take before and after pictures for you filthy savages because I know anything else would be unforgivable.

Isn't it sorta demented how much excitement we get from just talking about shelving our games? Then of course there's the act of doing so, which is like most satisfying thing I get from my games :D

We are a sick people.

Since repros are all dependent upon donor carts, the condition will vary :/

They're sorta legal gray area. Some places rather not deal with the potential issues with repros (though it seems like none of the big game companies care, most likely because there's really no financial loss for them).

Save the games dude.

Unless your major is bleeding edge computer technology stuff or something that absolutely NEEDS the latest version, buy a previous edition of the text book. You'll have to do a little leg work by letting your professor know that you need to cross reference assigned homework to make sure you're doing the right problems (most science/math textbooks don't change very much from one revision to the next, they might add a couple problems or sections, but generally speaking they pretty much just re-order the problems and call it a new book). Spending over $15 for a textbook is for suckers.

there is also the option of renting textbooks now or finding digital PDF versions of the textbooks also to help.

my advice is go to the school book store to look at the text books you need. write them down and the prices of new, used, and rent(if its an option) then compare online. i say this because strangely enough a couple of times the school book store was the cheapest route because every now and then if the teacher hasnt gone to the newest edition the old one goes out of print and might skyrocket in price. doesnt happen often but it has happened to me a couple of times.

Slowdive21's ways to approach college (post #2)

1) Go to lectures
2) Don't buy the book unless it is essential
3) If you need the book, split it with a cute girl in your class (gives an excuse to study together and saves money)
4) Keep games
5) Thank slowdive21

Another option is buying from someone who just took the class. Back in the day we had posting areas on campus and I would buy/sell my books locally. This was before the interweb had trade ins.

Cool Story Bros:
My college actually had 2 bookstores: One that was owned by the university and one that was independent. As you know (just like game trade ins) the price drops as they acquire more copies and eventually the bookstores stop taking them. People used to leave their 'worthless' books in crates to be recycled (as they were in a hurry to get out of town and back home). I would raid the crates, walk to the other independent bookstore (about 1/4 mile) and see if they were still taking the books. I only did it once (my final semester), but I made $180 on junk books and I even kept a couple of the marketing books for myself. 8-)

I don't think they're in a gray area. Just like watching fansubbed anime that isn't licensed in your region isn't a gray area. Not that I personally care, I'm just saying.

5) Find out girl parties all the time, and you can't reach her ever since she took the book one time to study for a test.
6) Kill slowdive21.

I've heard Atlantic shelves are gone down in quality so I look forward to hearing your impressions. Atlantic's shelves always had a solid reputation in the past but it seems like that's not the case anymore... especially because they use the same names but inferior quality material.

The new 1080s have definitely gone considerably down in quality. Thinner material used for each shelf, outer frame is also flimsier, and depth of all pieces seem to be less too so items are more prone to stick out.
