It looks like you might get as much as $40 for Super Metroid (good timing/right buyer). Which kinda shocked me . . . although it might be my favorite game of all time.

I'm pretty happy I got that DVD bundle last week out from the old man who was "buying games for his grandson". I sorted through it and watched a few good ones (He-Man, Batman Animated series) and sold a few expensive ones (like Sarah Plain and Tall for $30 and I have another listed for like $60). All in all if I watch what I want and resell them all I should end up clearing like 250 - 300 profit from the 50 dollar purchase. There was quite the hilarious mix in the box. TMNT, He-Man, Batman, Superman, then some Disney and little kids stuff, and then a whole bunch of Christianity stuff. I was going to open up some "documentary" on Allosaurus when I red the final line on the back which states how this documentary also supplies undeniable concrete proof that the last dinosaurs died out only a few thousand years ago and the Earth isn't millions of years old. Of course!

Don't knock it until you try it. Pure was a very fun game. One of only two Disney titles I've enjoyed (the other being Kingdom Hearts).

As crazy as it sounds, there are actually a lot of people who are convinced that this is true. Some folks are even still convinced that the world is flat. Lots of nutcases out there.

Today I snagged a GBA SP bundle with a bunch of games and crazy accessories. Highlights include
-Super Mario Bros 3
-Yoshis Island
-Pac Man Collection
-Alice In Wonderland (GB color)- I just really like AIW stuff :D
The accessories that came in this make make the damn gameboy look like the frankenstein monster. All these big bulky hunks of mismatched plastic that come together to make one tank of a handheld.

Unfortunately I plugged the gameboy in and it wont charge. The orange light flickers on for a second and then goes away. Well it was only $5 for all of it :/

Also picked up 2 xbox 360 controllers for $5 total. Glad I found these because now my friends don't have to bring theirs anymore

Edited by Eagle3ye, 05 October 2012 - 04:01 PM.
Just swapped the battery in the GB with one from mine and it works fine, so I just need to order a replacement batter pack :)

Put a new battery in the GBA SP and it will charge, I think there are batteries for like $1 on ebay.

The bigger problem here is this lets us know that when our batteries die, they can't be played just off the adapter though, which is a problem, as eventually the supply of Li-ion batteries for GBA SP's will disappear and those of us like me who are holding onto a backlit SP because its the most superior way to play Gameboy games will suffer.

I may be wrong but I think it's the same battery that went in an original DS.

Pretty sure it's not a DS lite.

I had to the most disappointing find today. My dad called me about some games, and out of the first stack I ended up buying three games for $5 (Bioshock (360), Children of Mana, and Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow (ds)), when he noticed a gamesube lot. SYstem with 4 games, some nothing, Super Mario Sunshine, Smash Bros Melee, and Zelda Windwaker. THen he told me they were all disk onyl and scratched beyond belief, and I sadly had to say no. Sigh. Why can't I find a good, clean copy of those games. I just want to play them.

Like, the Bioshock I bought from them is in perfect condition.

Only hit a couple of sales this weekend.

A lady advertised Old nintendo w/games and super nintendo with games. She lived pretty far form me, so I emailed her and asked how much for all of it.

She wanted $170 for the 2 consoles and 33 games. I didn't even bother driving out.

Oh God, I think that was the first part of the really awful Saturday morning Donkey Kong show. I remember watching that when it premiered, can't remember what channel it was on... in any case, it was really bad and I don't think I ever bothered to watch any more of it. If I remember correctly, it was the first time I ever remember not caring that a news report was interrupting a cartoon I was watching.
