Went to Goodwill after work since its right down the road, tons of people in there! Not a whole lot there, looked like they cleaned the shelves.

I picked up GTA San Andreas PS2 Black Label and Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic Xbox- $3 apiece

First original Xbox game I can remember buying in maybe a couple years.

Lots of vendors at New York Comic Con this weekend selling vintage games. Most were hilariously overpriced (console only Sega Master System for $100? Not on this planet). There were a lot of more reasonable vendors however, selling NES, SNES, and PS1 era stuff at prices at or below market value. The only thing I ended up with was a complete Non-Greatest Hits Twisted Metal 2 for PS1 for $10, which is an average price.

Why even pay the $50 admission anyway if you're only going to end up paying so much money for this stuff?

I hit up one of the local thrift stores late last week, and on the way out I noticed a stray 6 button pad behind the counter, lying on the floor with no wires attached. Being a curious person, I inquired about it and had the salesperson root around the area for the seemingly missing sensor unit for the Genesis. Come to find out it was thrown in with a Sega CD and Genesis lot they had concocted for the low, low price of $50.95. I was going to walk away, but the manager asked me what price it would take for me to pop on the lot and we met at $30.00 + taxes for the console set, wireless controller + receiver, all Sega CD base plates & screws, and a cib copy of Shadowrun that I almost walked by. Its not the best haul Ive had from the thrifts, but the game and controller work wonderfully and I eventually got the Sega CD to work after I boiled the rubber mounts for the CD lens assembly. The genesis power ups, but seems to be fickle when reading games so I plan to sell that along with a broken Sega CD I have laying around to house to help recoup some of the money I spent. I'm happy, and finally have a working Sega CD. :D

Okay, so today I was at a Goodwill I frequent a lot. They always have a game or two and they were having a sale, so I decided to go inside. Turned out they had quite a bit of games, but most of it was shovelware PS2 games and a few SNES sports titles. But something caught my eye.

I saw a really large box for a SNES game sitting in the back of the store where the glassware is. I thought to my self, "Oh my god, could this be Earthbound?". When I approached it, it turned out to be something called "Super Bomberman Party Pack". I've never seen this exact game before, so I opened the box and there was just junk inside. Just a pack of unrelated light bulbs and some paper. Though, I saw a black cable and the manual. But no cartridge inside. As soon as I got home I went on Ebay and searched for the game. Turns out, there's only one current auction on the game. And it's priced at $160.

Should I go back and buy the box itself and maybe find the peripherals and cartridge on Ebay or Amazon? I'm nearly tempted to go to Goodwill first thing in the morning to buy the box. I just wanted to check with you guys first.

I guess it depends on how much the box is, I would probably grab it for a reasonable price

Yup, Savers here would have all those games behind the jewlery counter with $24.99 price tags on them, and they'd sit there for three months before getting shipped to a different store or tossed in the dumpster. The Savers closest to me has had the same copy of Mario / Duck Hunt on the shelf with a $14.99 price tag on it for months now.

Picked up Shenmue II for Xbox and Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland for PS2 at goodwill for $4 each yesterday. Not great deals but they were the first things I've ever seen at my goodwill that weren't just sports games. They actually had a lot of common titles for Xbox that were all in IMMACULATE condition. Unfortunately it was pretty common stuff that was worth about the $4 they were charging :/

Oh and I hit a church rummage sale and found a furby for $.50 I'm just hoarding these stupid things now XD

Had a decent Goodwill shopping trip last weekend, picked up the following:

:gc: Lego Star Wars II: Original Trilogy, $1.50
Model 2 Genesis with 1 generic 6 button controller, AC adapter and A/V RF hook ups, $6.50
Electronic Catchphrase, 1st Edition $0.75

I was mostly stoked about finding Catchphrase, which was mistakenly put in the kids toy section rather than the board game section. Debating on whether or not I should keep the genesis unit, as I don't have any games to test it with (LED comes on though), sold all my genesis games long ago.

See a stack of Gameboy games in the case- Super Mario Land, Dr Mario, Double Dragon, some others. Asked to see them......$8 apiece! I said "HELL NO!" But what did I find further down in the case, $4 Pokemon Leaf Green cartridge, its a real copy and the save works just fine.

One of the Goodwills I stop by raised their base price to $8 for all games, which means I only go there on the 1/2 off sales. Awesome finds in your lot, even at the $5 price.

Ya, Dark Alliance 2 is worth what you paid for all of them on its own...

Grabbed Mario Kart 64 for $5.99. They also had Mario 64 for the same price but a little too much to be worth flipping. Borderline but meh, I already have it. Mario Kart I didn't have actually but I refused to pay eBay prices, I knew it was common enough that I would eventually stumble on one.

Only ting I can find is the one for the Majora's mask collector's edition and this does not match the image of that, nor idoes it appear to be the 2 disc version available from Nintendo Power.

Import?

Yeah it says its the 1 disc one. The image and the track listings match up so I guess that's it.
