I'm going to have to post some pictures later. I picked up a new Vita yesterday, which I'm pretty excited about. Not so much for the handheld or its available games but mainly because I didn't pay a cent for it.


A Seiko watch. While not expensive

Not expensive? Aren't those things around $500? Or did you manage to get one that's not batshit-crazy expensive? If you paid that much and you seriously think it's not expensive, then I would like to inform you that my birthday is coming up and I have always been a loyal friend to you. Of course, even if you didn't spend an assload of money on it, you are still welcome to shower me with gifts.

I spent just a little over $500 for that watch which really isn't that much considering some of the watches are my and many's watch list can cost upward of $20-30k... I am still saving towards that goal.

Watches are man jewlery.

but hey, I got this Casio earlier this month, fond memories and I wear it with pride :) $15 from amazon!

Just a matter of perspective, I guess. There could be a place that sells watches for $15,000,000 and I don't think it would make a $500 watch any less expensive. Hell, I think a $50 watch is expensive, but I couldn't imagine spending more than $5 for one. Heh. Well, I do have a watch that was $25 (one of these), but my mom bought it for me 20 years ago, so it doesn't quite count.

I am loving my most recent pick ups.

Posted Image

The lowball items I've got so far. I totally missed when bidding on them that some were sealed.



Posted Image

Thanks for coming back in stock Amazon.


Posted Image

I found Phantasy Star Portable 2 and Duke Nukem the other day in Gamestop. PSP2 was a no brainer, and I figured I wouldn't find Duke Nukem's CE much cheaper than $20.


Posted Image

Om nom nom reproduction cartridges.


Posted Image

I found these at Target the other day, and it's exactly the type of shelves I've been looking for. I'm probably going to go back and buy at least two more, I'm just slightly turned off by having yet another big wall of video games.

Picked these up Saturday at GameStop. Paid like $213...I think. Well if you take off the Mortal Kombat that I traded back I only paid $185. And that's paid in credit. Didn't spend anything out of pocket for it. While there i also renewed my Power Up Card, so I should be getting a b2g1 coupon soon, so I'll be using that to pick up some more games for it.

Not a whole lot to show off because I'm really trying to cut back on purchases right now, but here we go...

Posted Image
Just some Skylanders and my awesome Skyrim shirt. Unfortunately, Shirtpunch uses different shirts now and they don't have any kind of stretch/give to them, so I need to lose a few more pounds before it feels comfortable.

Posted Image
Free stuff from the final month of House Party.

Posted Image
I don't plan on ever watching anything on my PSP, but Aeon Flux was one of my favorite shows as a kid and it was cheap. These were also free, paid for with GameStop credit. I know some people might argue that it's technically not free if you use credit, but considering that I got the credit by trading in free games, I say it still counts. All that matters is that not a single penny came out of my pocket. And I've still got a fair amount of credit, which I will probably use to go towards a Wii U. I need some Vita games, but there isn't anything really good out on shelves yet, so I'm going to download some games once I get my $100 in PSN cards from Langers.

And now something you always hoped wouldn't be shared:
Spoiler



Oh, and yes, those are Care Bears flashcards in the background of my pictures. I'm teaching my little boy shapes and colors (I'm hoping he'll have it down before his second birthday) and Care Bears are awesome, so there you have it.

Halo CE and Gunstringer both from the GameFly used sale. Both games came in pristine condition with unused DLC codes. Duke Nukem new from Amazon after the price drop.

All from CAG and the flea market. The RE case and Ruby manual were .50 each, and the controller was $1. It's a programmable/rapid fire Genesis controller.

That's a lot of quality games! Nice finds, don't ever let go of 2K8, that is easily the most fun basketball game I have ever played. The post moves are so fun to use! The cover was also the last positive thing to happen to Greg Oden's career lol :lol:

I've got Here Is Greenwood...I think that's the first anime I've seen in your collection that I actually own (although I'm sure there must be others that we share). I really wish that would've panned out as a series.

Yeah, it's just one of those series they put together quickly because of the manga, but then they didn't really get enough funding to go any further. Great show still.

Well this is probably my favorite gaming item I have ever purchased :D

Indianapolis Colts themed Xbox 360! Got it with the controller( which has blue/white LED lights ) for $40. Sadly it has the RROD but I will try to fix it. If I can't it'll be used as a display in my room. I could sell the controller for $30 easily so not being able to fix would not be a big deal.

Everyone knows blue LEDs make it cooler, red LEDs make it faster, and green LEDs make it quieter and more efficient. This information has been available since the dawn of the LED, I thought everyone knew it#-o
