I love the street fighter Kidrobots. I have two chuns and a honda.

Been interested in SNES stuff lately. Raiding a sports card store that has a huge inventory of old cart games from some guy's store that went out of business. Most of these were $3.

Some of those SNES games are turds. Gunforce, Thunder Spirits, and Knife Edge on N64 are some of th worst shit i've played lately. Just bought them blind. Oops.. On the plus side Forsaken is an awesome descent clone. I really like it so far.

Posted Image
Holy shit does duke nukem zero hour have a bad framerate. Not a bad little third person shooter, but it runs at like 10 FPS the whole time..

Posted Image
I was really happy with this - I was just looking over videogames.pricecharting.com lists of most expensive SNES games and this is up there. Found it for $10 at a local record shop in Michigan. Really fun game too.

Posted Image
I thought this was more rare than it is, but i still didn't see it for sale anywhere around here. Nice packaging, and I didn't have a GOTY edition. $20.

Posted Image
This game is a lot of fun, and awesome music.

Posted Image
Complete Dragon Warrior 2 was too awesome to pass up for $10. I loved the art on this one, gonna find a place for it.

Posted Image
I sold my old guitar at a local shop and got $60 credit to use. Infamous 2 was brand new $30, kirby Dream Land 3 was $15 and Kirby 64 was $15.
Space Marine was $20 at Best Buy after an adjustment from the manager.

My jaw dropped when I saw it in a case with all the other SNES games. This place had loads of other "rare" games marked up to ebay prices, so it was doubly awesome that they didn't know about this one.

I like how you can do backflips into huge ninja magic spells in the game. Weird that I never heard of it back when it came out..

The only reason I bought it is because I've been looking for one to send to VGA to get graded, and I've never seen a Super Set with a box so mint. I offered $250, the guy said he wanted at least $300, and we settled on $275.

That's sexy.

I remember when I got mine back in 1991 or whatever I drew bowser's castle on the styrofoam packaging and made holes for doors and stuff, like all the little compartments were rooms.

I thought i was a clever 8 year old.

Hmm, that wouldn't happen to be a Sailor Moon themed beat-em up?

I think this one is actually the fighting game, where the Sailors all whale on each other Street Fighter style.

The beat em up on Famicon didn't involve the later Sailors I don't think.

That's awesome. Hopefully you're not getting the guides at Gamestop, since no true CAG would ever shop there, right?

Gamestop actually seems to be the only B&M retailer that stocked the guides, at least in my area.

Picked up the XBL points off of the buy.com/Ebay sale for ~$37, Rage for $55 with $10 credit on Amazon, and Pilotwings off AWD for $14, trading in to Amazon for $16.75 + $5 trade in bonus when buying Dark Souls. I also forgot to take a picture of Ico/Shadow of the Colossus which I got from Newegg for $30.

Posted Image

My preorder from Amazon came through just fine, and was fortunate enough to find a leftover copy at Gamestop last night.

I moved into my place about a year ago, so I figured it was about time to upgrade my $80 futons. Loving it so far, just hoping my cat doesn't like it as much as I do.

It is called Sailor Moon SuperS (Pretty Soldier etc.) Fuwa Fuwa Panic. It is a pretty strategic puzzle game.



Also Squarehard I used needle nose pliers to bend the tab back and forth. Then used plastic model kit scissors to cut off the excess plastic.

Is that an uncharted poster above the couch?

I think it's Chloe.. on the right side..

Anyways, where did you get it and how much?

That's an older picture I took a few weeks ago, but has the whole poster in it.

One of my friends went to Comic Con two months ago and picked up one of them. I liked it a lot so I ended up buying one on Ebay for $25. That's a bit more than I usually want to pay for just a poster, but it's numbered and I'm kind of a sucker for that *looks at ME2 lithograph*.

I just did a quick search on Ebay now and unfortunately they seem to be going for quite a bit more, upwards of $75-100.
