Unfortunately there wasn't one on eBay, so I had to settle. :*(


Ah, I see. Yeah, that particular set hasn't been reasonably priced in years; thankfully I was able to go the slimline route thru one on Amazon's deals.

It's funny though, seeing your full-sized DVD cases reminds me of back when my local Gamestop carried DVDs (including anime). I think I bought two Last Exile DVDs from them during a B2G1--spending around $20--and ended up doing a return in order to hold out for the full series. Smart move, in retrospect.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 - $20
Megaman Zero Collection - $15
Resonance of Fate - $15

Good luck! I Was just browsing through the non glass case games and both of those were in the plastic cases with Metro labeled as $29.97 and Lost Odyssey at $19.99. It was merely me trying to kill time waiting for an associate to help me that I just started price scanning nearly every game that interested me. They were also the only copies so hopefully your KMart has some waiting.

No luck, unfortunately. Like I said in another thread, they had fewer games than I have here at home. Almost nothing interested me; anything they had from my wishlist was too expensive. Oh well.

Sorry to hear that. I Kinda figured it'd be a hot commodity because looking at Metro all I could think was "what the Fuck? This can't be real" since I've rarely (if ever) ever seen that game get marked below $20 or even $25.

I love my guides. Got the Catwoman CE Guide. So instead of opening it I snagged a guide from Wal-Mart (my gamestop was out of guides for Arkham).

Posted Image
I thought I had cancelled my Gamestop order for Totori, but evidently I didn't. So I now have 2 copies. Will probably just return it to my local store. I had forgotten that NISA had that poster and free shipping.

[FONT="]It’s been a very busy month with things not pertaining to gaming, so almost forgot to post October’s pick-ups.

Those last two Nikes have got to be the ugliest shoes I've ever seen in my life! I can't imagine why anyone would want them unless they are somehow worth money. But for the life of me, I can't figure out why they would be.

More pickups!

First off this is my digital pickup, along with this I bought my first piece of Avatar clothing: the Sega Saturn T-shirt.
Posted Image

Got in my copy of Arkham City from Amazon along with the free comic. I've also added the Sinestro Corps and Beyond skins to my PS3.
Posted Image

Two more Game Gear games to my collection from a second hand store, and a cheap Mutant League Football from Goodwill.
Posted Image

Got a pretty good price on Jet Set Radio Future (original release) for the Xbox, and realized I was also missing Jet Grind Radio on the Dreamcast, so I added them both to my collection.
Posted Image

Found the 360 copy of Nier at TRU for $9.98 and got Mirrors Edge for $9.99 from Best Buy. Prices were good to me so I snagged them both.
Posted Image

And bought my first physical book in a while, a lot thicker than I thought it was going to be.

Looking forward to all of the potential pick-ups for next month!

That reminds me of back when I was in high school and I'd buy the T-Macs (from the first up to the T-Mac 3) in literally every color on their release date, and would choose which to wear based on what matched my outfit. Now, I wouldn't be caught dead wearing a basketball shoe. The last pair I bought (to wear) were the AZG LeBron's rookie year.

Some people would be like "You've got more shoes than most girls," but those were the type that probably only bought one pair at the beginning of the school year, so to them, getting a new pair every month seemed crazy.

"Back on topic," I've got some sweet pick-ups to post, but I'm waiting for the last one to come in.

That woman would have giant feet lol.

My brothers and I are huge sneakerheads. We wear nearly all of our shoes and only a select few get set aside to preserve its value. It also helps that we roughly have the same shoe size.

Those last two Nikes have got to be the ugliest shoes I've ever seen in my life! I can't imagine why anyone would want them unless they are somehow worth money. But for the life of me, I can't figure out why they would be.


It's part of the NYC Boroughs pack and as mentioned before, it's the Queens version. I used to live in Queens and it has the NY Knicks color way so it has significance to me personally. That and it has a pretty decent resell value that'll sure to rise in the future.

You're right, it does seem crazy. Heh. Hell, I think getting new shoes at the beginning of each school year is crazy. I've always taken really good care of my shoes, so I usually stick with the same pair for a few years. Currently, I'm on my second pair of shoes since graduating high school just over 8 years ago. Getting a new pair of shoes is one of the most uncomfortable feelings in the world to me, so I'll hang on to a pair until they start falling apart.

Different strokes. I think both of those Hyperdunks look amazing. I wear pretty much nothing but bright colored shoes.

I can't even begin to see the appeal, but hey, it's cool they make something to your liking. I've never thought of shoes as a fashion accessory, so I usually just go with something dark or neutral. I of course pick out something that I think looks nice, but I'm just happy to have something that fits comfortably. Same goes for cars.


Pics?

Well, I don't have a picture of my old worn-out shoes 'cause I threw them away, but I took a picture of my current ones. They're kinda dirty, though, 'cause I haven't cleaned them in a long time (when I say I take care of my shoes, I just mean that I'm not rough with them):
Spoiler

Yikes, that's an awful picture. The flash makes them look kinda brownish-gray and shiny, but in person they are almost solid black and slightly less ugly. Heh. Also, the shoelaces look funky because I've been having a persistent problem with edema in the feet, so I have to wear the laces loose.

These shoes are about two years old now, so they're a bit scuffed up and not too pretty. They don't seem to be as durable as my last pair of shoes (Vans Jim Greco Thunders, I believe) which lasted at least three years before they looked like that. They're pretty comfy, though, so I'm content.

NOTE: I have no special affinity for Vans or Jim Greco (don't even know who he is); I just buy tend to buy their shoes because they are cheap, comfy, simple, and usually durable. But most importantly, they have wide toes, which is really hard for me to find in my size.
