D: February ended already? I didn't even get to post how I was an idiot a few days ago.

Bought the above right before the drop in price for the PSP. Still, it was only $130 for the PSP, the speakers, all the loose crappy UMDs. Sadly the PSP came hacked, but apparently when I updated it, that went bye-bye. Ignore the x2 Ogre things. I felt like doing something stupid with my money.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

Nice Rabbit. :) Too bad you got shafted what with the price drop and all.

Stuff from before:
I picked up a couple random things from Amazon:
:ds: Nostalgia $9.96
:ds: Hori 16 DS Card Carry Case $4 (ignoring the $9 sticker)


Rosewill 2.5"/3.5" combo Hard Drive dock for $13.99 from Newegg. I have had a bare 3.5" internal HDD for about 3 years since my old desktop died.


I used the B&N Groupon deal to pick up some stuff that was mostly just filler, but stuff I also thought was interesting:
:dvd: Dracula- Dead and Loving It for like $2
RoadSong Vol 1 Manga for $3.30ish
:wii: Prima Essential Goldeneye 007 Guide $10.20 after tax I think


:ds: Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation, $12.44 ($34.99 + tax - $25 GC) from Kmart.


:ds: Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation Guide $10.50 from B&N.com


GoHastings pickups (not all shown):
:ds: Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Guide $4.28 (5 for $20)
:wii: Super Smash Bros Brawl Guide $4.28 (5 for $20)
:wii: Red Steel 2 Guide $2.90 (30% off sale)



Pickups from CAG (not all shown):
:xbox: Goldeneye Rogue Agent Guide
:dvd: Tokyo Majin Ch 1 DVD Set
Dragon Warrior NES cart
:gc: Starfox Adventures Guide



Added 3/3:
19" iSymphony LCD TV, $113.07 ($5 GC) from Amazon. It looks stunning for the price. I was getting it since my current TV is a TV/DVD combo, and I now have a Blu-Ray player as an early birthday present. The contrast ratio on this TV is 10,000:1. The only complaint I have is the lack of inputs- only 1 HDMI, 1 VGA, and 1 component/composite. Oh, and the connection from my cable box is a bit off, as the audio sometimes freaks out. 99% of the time it's during the stupid and severely annoying Proactiv commercials.

Yes, I do know the plastic protective wrap is still on it. I am keeping it there until I travel back to FSU.

Added 3/5:
LG Optimus V bundle from Best Buy ($179.73):
LG Optimus V Cell Phone
$25 VM Top-up card
Rocketfish MicroUSB car charger
InvisibleShield screen protector for LG Optimus S

Insignia NS-BRDVD4 Blu-Ray Player, $85.59 from Best Buy.
:br: Bambi Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack, $14.60 ($22.99 + tax - $10 coupon) from Best Buy.
:wii: Tatsunoko vs Capcom Ultimate All Stars $17.11 from Best Buy


After heading to Best Buy for the BR Player, Bambi, and TvC, I headed to GameStop to trade in my black wii that was pretty much useless as it had hit a tile floor from about 3.5 feet up multiple times. I ended up with $117.75 in store credit, which got me:
:ds: Mario Kart
:wii: Nunchuck
$62.77 in store credit leftover.

ADDED 3/6:
Two copies each of Pokemon Black and White. One set is for me, the others are gifts. Total was like $98.77 after rewards points.



Still to add: DVD haul from Kmart. Mostly crap but... Oh, and working spoilers because apparently the links I had there don't work. It's currently almost 3am, so I am going to tackle that tomorrow.

I told myself I wouldn't spend any more money for a while.
Then somebody posted a full set of Rock Band instruments (including a second Guitar Hero guitar) for $30 on Craigslist. Damn yooooou!

Also swept out a guy at works section he didn't feel like doing in exchange for a few Genesis carts he picked up for me at the thrift store, Golden Axe, not sure what else yet. Have to wait till I see him next.

Yo pick-ups club. In trying to be a bit less of a CAG recluse I figured I'd jump in here since I take pick-up pics for personal reference periodically anyway. I've never posted in a pick-up thread before before, but now's as good a time as any to start, heh.

Posted Image

All of this is mostly the result of trades, but I did shell out for the NMH2: Hopper's Edition on Amiami. Around $60 shipped, but normally retails for $100-ish.

Boxes are longer, and the big thing is they don't have that huge ugly grey bar with the logo on the box art that wastes space.

NA got screwed indeed on the art, but if you think about it, they actually match up to look better on the shelf because they match DS boxes better, than the JP ones, which don't really work well on the shelf, so it's sort of a victory for us...sorta...

I feel the same way love the art on the JP box but love the NA box better.

Which in a way makes the UK releases of gameboy games the best because they usually combine the japanese art with the NA size box

I never saw that DVD, did they edit the part in the Evolution match where Ric Flair goes "I don't think so, motherfucker!?" I remember live it was tremendously loud for no reason.

Spent more then I planned. The 4 volumes of Xmen were $45. Silent Hill was $15 at Kmart. DOA Paradise was $10 at Best Buy. The rest I got between 2 Gamestops. All the discs range from great to NM. Was very happy to find the Magna Carta Box set used.
