^^There is a religious thrift store near me and the guy who works there prices and buys the good video games. But yeah there is a guy who used to work at my savers who collects games because they went from 99 cents each to 9.99-49.99 each. He got transferred to another store, so now the games are around 4.99-5.99 each. Still too high for most items.

the savers i went to (over a year ago now) used to have some good prices on games. .99 to 4.99. The game guy knew me and that i'd come in on fridays. he would put stuff out right around that time and i used to snatch up some good shit. I miss that.

I agree! Seriously, like wtf. That guy calling you out minutes before the transaction is complete? Total bs. Even moar if they took it back and increased the price cause of him.

Some people are total dicks, and if they don't want anyone to get a good deal. If it hadn't been at the one game store that i liked i would have offered the one guy more for a trade-in that the store would have given him, but that is another story.

I stopped by Half Price Books today to use my last 15% off coupon and found a bunch of good stuff. The deals weren't anything terribly amazing, but they were all reasonably priced and were things I was very happy to find. Here's some of the stuff I picked up:

Biomega manga, vol. 1-6 ($6 each)
Q-Ko-Chan manga vol. 1 hardcover edition ($2)
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Genndy Tartakovsky) vol. 1 and 2 ($7 each)
Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice ($15)

The most surprising thing I found though was a Japanese copy of Ace Attorney 3 for $5.

Guess Im on a Gamecube roll now.....which I like better than my PS2 roll I was on.

$3 each-
Luigis Mansion- complete, even the Nintendo Power ad is in the case

Another Animal Crossing- Complete except memory card

Super Smash Bros Melee- same as Luigis Mansion

The Legend Of Zelda Windwaker- same as Luigis Mansion

Saw Super Mario Sunshine disc in the cd binder but I didnt see the case on the shelf. There was tons of blues tubs full of stuff so I probably missed it. Ill be stopping by again, cant pass up a $3 SMS even if I just bought the $4 copy the other day.

My GW finally got another shipment Target clearance games and ended up with three copies of Invizimals Shadow Zone (with camera), three copies of Cars 2 :psp: and two copies of 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa :ps3:, all for $3/ea. Keeping one of each and the rest are going to Amazon or Best Buy.

Almost bought a copy of windwaker and SMS today at my pawn shop. I probably could have gotten them $1 a piece because he hadn't priced them yet but the condition of the cases were pretty bad.

Too late now, he started looking them up on ebay as I left.

I always hit the movie shelf last but I glanced over and saw the Gamecube cases on top of the PS2 crap games that have been there so I walked over. im like "spyro, spyro, another spyro, madden 05, ohhhh Windwaker!.....and Luigis Mansion non Players Choice!" Then I saw a stack of DVDs in a bin and found the other 2 mixed in. Really wish there was some Resident Evils or Pikmin 2, that wouldve been nice.

Did you pass on the Spyro's? Some of them are flip-worthy.

Was able to find a cd-i in a small pawn shop/thrift store. This is the only listing on ebay that I could find of the model I got. http://www.ebay.com/...=item19d4bdcf5f The system only came with power cord but I still think it was worth it. Oh and they also had an arcade machine that was working but I didn't get to look at the name. He was only asking $60 for it and I might have to go back later and pick it up if the game is a decent one.

I'm jealous if you get ANY cabinet for $60.00. I've been watching a few around me and they're never less than 500-600 which is way too much for me to get.

The Lost Vikings
Aliens vs Predator
Final Fight
Super Bomberman
Sonic Blast Man
Lord of the Rings
Gotcha Force

The SNES games are nice and minty, and I'm glad to finally snag Final Fight in great shape. I knew Gotcha Force was rare, but not $30-40 rare.

I bought Gotcha Force a long time ago when I still worked at GS and stupidly sold it, and since then haven't found a complete copy in good shape at all.

But the thing I'm most jealous of you finding is that AvP game ahha, I love that game, it's the beat em up right?

Yeah, it's a beat em up. I haven't made it very far in it; I loved Final Fight when I was a kid though. My brother and I got the Super Nintendo soon after it came out and that was the game he picked to get with it. It's still hard for me to beat too; I've only done it a few times.

I managed to "Snag" Pokémon Colosseum from one of the local Goodwills today for $3. Doesn't have the original manual, but the disc plays just fine. I've been wanting this game for awhile now.

Seriously. As long as it's in decent shape, $60 is worth it for any game cabinet.

Sold my Nobunaga's Ambition 2 for $50 this week. Went back to Game Xchange and picked up Megaman and Bubble Bobble for Game Gear which both should be good flips.

Also at Savers I took a chance on a Roomba iRobot for $20 and a brand new copy of Dallas Season 8 for 5 bucks.

Had my first good thrift store find in a long time.

Fat ps2 with cables, controller and memory card for $15.

Good deal because I needed a ps2 controller and could not find one for less than $15. Also needed some official Sony cables to include with a mini psone I was trading to amazon.

Extra bonus is the ps2 works better than the one I had already, which was giving disc read errors before I fixed it.

Plays everything fine, cd games, DVD games, dual layer games, psone.

Nice to find something reasonably priced at a goodwill. When I saw it in the case I expected them to be charging $40 or so.
