Grabbed a SEALED Powerslave (PC) interactive 4 level demo today for $1.99.
From what I'm seeing, this thing is really rare. Any help is appreciated :)

Also saw a Doom levels shareware cd by 3D Games in a sleeve. Are these worth getting?

Sold those DVDs I mentioned earlier on eBay. Spent a little over $15 and Twilight alone covered that cost. A little disappointed in Harry Potter. Had a ton of views and watchers, but only sold for $3.

After a bit of a dry spell, my local GW finally had a few good things worth posting about. They got a fresh donation from what must have been a fallen PC gamer, because they had about 20 CIB classic PC games. I only ended up taking four of them, though the temptation was there to get most of them.

All $1/ea:

  • Hellfire (Diable expansion pack)
  • Dungeon Keeper Gold Edition
  • Ace Ventura (Never even seen this one before)
and the granddaddy of them all...
  • Grim Fandango, not only in the original big box, but all shrink wrap still intact, aside from the flap cut on top. Has Travel Guide/Instruction manual with only slight warping and LucasArts Fall 1998 catalog, discs are mint in cardboard case. Looks like the free copy of Day of the Tentacle advertised on the box is missing, unless it is on disc.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Whoa! Nice score! Got mine off CL for around $5, no map though :(.
I'd be scouring that whole place looking for other games after that popped up. I suggest going back everyday for the next few days in case they put more out.

Yeah I know. OC GWs like in Westminster, Buena Park, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, all charge $25 for a wii/ps3/360 game. LA GoodWills have a fixed price (as far as i know) on games - $15 PS3/360/DS/3DS/Wii, the rest $5.99.

I had a really good day at a local thrift today

Conker's Bad Fur Day N64 $4
Super Mario 2 NES $5
Platinum Gamecube $4 I opened it up and it had a copy of Zelda Wind waker in it.
PS2 (disc drive broken) $4

I'd like to keep Conker for the collection but the flip is too good

I haven't really gone to check Gardon Grove and Westminster GWs but I can assume. I only went to one near 99 Ranch Market in Buena Park. Mostly Orange and Santa Ana are my areas. They don't charge that price but something similar. Sometimes cheap once in a while, maybe 7.99 or 9.99. Most were 20+ though. I wish they had the fixed price. Maybe the big one in Costa Mesa is fixed. :lol:

Yeah, I was a bit confused about that showing up in a thrift store and then I noticed the red tag. I wasn't terribly surprised about the price, though; I'm assuming they probably have no idea that this is a new game for a new console.

Incredible find nonetheless. I got a few things yesterday.

Two Gamecube controllers (purple and black)- $2.25
Pokemon Colosseum (missing manual)- $2.25
Xbox Silent Hill 4 The Room (complete mint) $5.25

This Goodwill always confuses the hell out of me. Sometimes the games are $2, other times they're $3, and recently they have been marking up PS2 and Xbox games to $5.25. I guess it depends on who's there to mark it. Oh well.

Awesome finds, I always imagine / dream I'll stumble across a copy of MML2 in a GW someday, to make up for the one I sold foolishly years ago...

Only GW finds I had this weekend were:
:ps2: Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War, complete, good condition $2.50
:wii: Balance Board, official Nintendo version, $6.50
Genesis Super Battleship, cartridge only, $0.50

I've been meaning to find a cheap Genesis game to test the console I got a couple of months ago, and for some reason I have had a hard time coming up with any Genesis games for awhile at local GWs.
