Oh man, I really want that Forza LCE. Unfortunately, I didn't play ahead on that one, instead focusing on other games, and I've missed out. Here's hoping I can find one at a local store, and that I can afford it around the rest of the stuff I'm buying.

Keeping with the Dark Souls theme for this month ;). Ghaleon puppet from ebay. Einhander from Half Price Books for $11 after I traded in some books.

Spoiler

Thrift store pick ups. The Intellevision II is in great shape. It came with Demon Attack for $12 (half off day). Harvest Moon preorder pup plush was about $1. And the Sonic bottle was about $2. Apparently it is from Sega World, which was never in NA. weird

I'll post my pickups once my DSi and Xbox come in. Pretty expensive month for me and it's only the second week.

Okay, here's pretty much everything I've gotten in the past few weeks.

Posted Image

MOOAAARRRR complete GBA games. With Tactics Ogre and Demikids Dark knocked out, I have pretty much all of the rarities and now I need to work on stuff that's not necessarily expensive but merely difficult to track down complete. And there's A LOT of that (see: Jackie Chan Adventures, which was cheap but also the first complete copy I'd found on ebay in months of searching. I got that game for Christmas when I was 13, lol.)

Posted Image

High-end vintage stuff from lowballs and elsewhere. I gotta say, owning a complete copy of Ogre Battle 64 is pretty great.

Posted Image

Still managing to fill a few of the holes on in the PS2 library.

Posted Image

PS3 pickups. My Dark Souls CE took so long to ship that I went ahead and got the game elsewhere, so I'm actually offering it for $64 shipped to anyone interested.

Posted Image

This-n-that.

Posted Image

Anime. Squarehard is a bad influence!

Posted Image

Wacom Bamboo tablet from a lowball. Didn't come with the box or installation CD so I got it at a nice discount, though I'm going to need to track down an installation CD if I want the tablet to function properly. Anyone have one that they'd loan me for some cash?

I got Last Exile, but I stuck to the complete series sets, mostly because I can fit individual cases on my DVD rack. :(

Are these a good brand? I've never heard of Bamboo, but my grandma bought me one of these for Christmas. I'm not even sure if I'll keep it (I don't draw), but I'm curious.

When I got this game for Christmas, I played it for about twenty minutes and found that the game wouldn't save. Every time I turned my GBA off and then back on, I'd be right back at the beginning of the game (and it wasn't the kind of game that used passwords instead of internal saves, either.) It was promptly returned to Gamestop as defective and I got $40 in credit for it (lol parents paying that much for a licensed GBA cartoon game.) I put the cash toward Super Smash Bros Melee as it had just come out, probably the best possible thing I could have done with the credit at the time, hah.

I liked the show too, it doesn't hold up so great as an adult but it was entertaining. Rebought the GBA game just out of nostalgia :p

I should have mentioned that the drivers aren't the only thing on the installation CD. It looks like some advanced features of the tablet like pressure sensitivity can only be tweaked through special programs on the installation CD so without the CD I lose some precision. Nevertheless, I got this so far below retail for this model that it's no issue at all. I'll track the disc down somehow.

I think that Wacom is pretty much the standard for graphics tablets, though I'm a total novice when it comes to this sort of thing. There are a whole bunch of different models, Bamboo included, and I can't really say what the differences are. I should probably research this.

Hmm, looks like I'll have to research it as well. I've heard of Wacom, but I wasn't sure if that's the actual brand of this model or if it was just being used as a generic term; you know, kinda like how people say "Band-Aid" to refer to any brand of adhesive bandage. Anyway...I'd imagine you should be able to find the disc online somewhere (torrent site perhaps), but if you haven't had any luck by Christmas, I'd be happy to make a copy of my disc for you.

Are you positive? On the site they call it the "driver CD," and the software tied to it, to my knowledge, is all retail type stuff. Did you at least try the driver download? I've downloaded lots of "drivers" that were in fact the software. Not having the required software available freely seems kind of scuzzy.

Do I ever have egg on my face. Installing the driver was the first thing I did, but apparently the actual options are somewhat buried in the Start menu. Combine that with my reading various bits of misinformation while googling my problem, and I ended up being entirely on the wrong track with this. Once I found the options, I just had to crank up the Tip Feel and pressure sensitivity worked like a charm. You're right in that many so-called "drivers" actually include the software as well, which is why I found this especially puzzling.

Nothing to see here people, I just had a day-long brain fart/tablet noob moment :lol:

No worries. If it makes you feel any better, the other day I spent about an hour trying to rip CDs to my Xbox before I realized I have an Arcade that can't rip CDs.

Do all copies or marked copies of Gunstringer come with Fruit Ninja? It's currently $34 on Amazon and I'm debating it or wait.

Sorry! Didn't notice your question, but as far as I notice they do. Long as it's brand new it should come with the code.

I got some more stuff recently.

Posted Image
Got Full Metal Panic: Second Raid (blu-ray), Bamboo Blade (SAVE edition), Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Everybody Dance both came from Best Buy $20 off sale.

Posted Image
Uncharted 3 swag I got from the Uncharted 3 in 3D event at AMC Tysons Corner 16 (near DC).

Posted Image
This was probably the best part about the event, where I won a pre-signed poster in the raffle from the Naughty Dogs. I just framed it today.

Posted Image
I got two DC shirts for $15 each at Zumiez (I like DC brand) and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Impact. Got both in VA.
