Went to Salvation Army today and they had a 50% off storewide sale. Found myself a sealed version of Othello, Rave Master v. 1. Got Angels and Demons cause I was giving my copy to my cousin. Though The Matrix and Philosophy would be an interesting read.

Saw they had an Xbox priced at $50. D:

If it's from the same series as the "Zelda and Philosophy" book, it's probably way more boring than it would seem. I tried to read the Zelda book but it was overly academic and it seemed like the authors were really stretching to hit their points. I think I stopped reading after the third chapter.

Zelda and Philosophy? :lol: I don't think that would really make sense. The Matrix and Philosophy has it right and what not, talking about the Oracle, etc. I wonder if the Batman and Philosophy would be a good read.

Picked up Halo 4 at the Goodwill I work at today for $29.99. Only thing wrong with it is one of the clasps that holds the 2nd disc flap is broken big deal. Pretty happy about it, my co-workers all wanted it but since I got off first I was the one who bought it.

Nothing great this weekend, though I did pick up the following:

PSone: Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back (GH version), $1.50

:wii: New Carnival Games, $2.50

I'm going to trade in the crappy carnival games for $8 BBY credit. After replaying Crash since my original run over 10 years ago, I forgot how fun they can be, so it was a good enough trip by itself.

Picked up a brand new copy of Kinect Rush for $1. It was a Target salvage, not priced and placed with the DVDs which are normally $1, so that's what I was charged.

Yeah, I threw it up on eBay for a ridiculously high amount with offers so hopefully someone bites. The soundtrack one used seems to hover around $70 so I'm not sure what premium a sealed one commands. We'll see.

Are they honestly selling for that much?

I think I have a PS2 Codebreaker disc (or 2) just laying around collecting dust. Made by some company named Pelican something-or-other?

*Yeah, I know I have one in the original case + a lose disc one around

Haven't been finding much of anything lately. Finally found something today. Picked up Shadow Hearts for the PS2 at Savers for $3.99
Manual and game in really good shape. Love rpgs, so I'm guessing I'll dig this one, although if I don't, seems to have a pretty good resell value online.

Guess so, although it was ver. 10 , so that's why it sold for a premium. The earlier versions generally sell for less. It was made by Pelican. Dig yours out and let us know what ya find!

They're worth money because they are useful for pirating games and (in some cases) playing imports. Very few people buy them for their intended purposes - except the GB Gamesharks, people buy those for Pokemon.

I found one of my PS2 ones. It's version 7.1. Looks like they go for around $50 on ebay, but none have been sold recently. I'll probably just hang on to it.

PS2 Slim (No Power Cord, A/V, Controller) $5.99
SkullMonkeys PS1 (Complete) - $5.99
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 (Complete) - $5.99

Not sure if the PS2 works, but I just placed an order on a PS2 Slim generic 8.5 V AC adapter from eBay.

Nice pull but be really careful with that PS2 slim, because of the tendency that they have to scratch discs after sitting around without use for long periods of time. It's due to clearance issues with the ribbon cable for the laser so test it out with a disc your not attached to first.

Cool pull otherwise!

My local thrift store is not good with games (mostly old PS2 and PC games that you can buy at Game Stop) but they usually have great DVD deals. Once bought unopened copies of Wings Seasons 6 and 7 (Spent $6, sold it for $30) and got the first Sherlock Holmes on Blu-ray combo pack (WITH slipcover).

But just a few days ago I bought the following DVDs, all unopened, for $3 each:

Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows
The Vow
Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 SE
21 Jump Street (Movie)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Unfortunately, they tend not to check if a set has the right discs or if they have any at all. Once saw a copy of Justice League Unlimited Seasons 1 and 2 with Disc 3 missing and the 80's TMNT Volume 5 with a PC activity disc based on the CG movie in the case.
