If I ever find out what you consider a great weekend, my head will explode from envy.


Lol, they were both great days, I think the best day of game hunting for this past summer game came when I found Radiant Silvergun Import with same TG16 games (Cadash, Sidearms, Alien Crush etc) for $2 from a guy at a flea market who was selling stuff he found in the trash / dumpster diving / picking. I actually missed Radiant Silvergun the first time and went back and it was sitting there.

Its kind of funny that I had game hauls the last few weeks because I never have luck at yard sales for video games. I was doing them for comics, however, we have a reseller in the area who knocks on people's doors so I gave up on that too and now I'm just looking for any CCG cards to fund my video game habit.
My games list, Just hit 1000!!!

^ Nice pickup, the colored 64's are quite sexy IMO. I've had the Flame Orange for years.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who loves the Nintendo e-Reader.

Hey All. Wanted to wish you all a Happy Holidays. The yard saling has ceased in my area, but I have tons of old footage that I need to edit, etc and put on Youtube. With that being said, here is the next in my series of Garage Sales LIVE. It's all about the trials and tribulations of finding close to nothing in the wild.

Once again, thanks to all of you who put in the time and work to post stories and pictures to this thread. It's extremely enjoyable.

There are some curses, so it's not exactly suitable for work.

I was wondering this myself. It has to be glasses. There's no other way people would just let him casually record everything without even saying a word.

Slowdive, you should make some videos! Salin' with Slowdive!

Feedback on the video itself, I enjoyed it, but it was kind of slow. I didn't mind it because it was cool seeing it all from the first-person point of view. One thing though; the whole "we didn't find shit" schtick was funny up until the 3rd time, then it just got really annoying. A little overkill on that, but it was still a great video. I even subscribed.

Either that or a hat/cap. Both of his hands are free. I can't stand to watch long enough to know more than that.

They are glasses. I try to blur out individuals to protect their identities. I would enjoy seeing your escapades in the wild.

Thanks bud.

Agreed on the overkill. I just didn't have time, or was too lazy to change techniques at the point. As to the overall speed, I don't have any other method, unless showing all finds until the end of the video. Thanks for the comments.

Like I said, it was funny the first few times. I actually lol'd the first couple of times. Then it was just like, this again? I didn't mind the speed. I like seeing the entirety of the garage sale. It makes it more realistic and fun to watch. It shows that you don't always score amazing finds.

I was waiting, since another CAG contacted me and wanted to get in an early information post. That's ok, we can always wiki it if we have to.
