This came in yesterday. Was supposedly due to come in on the 7th, but hey, not complaining. :D

You know, if all of Bandai's Anime Legends sets looked as good as Geass S1's, I wouldn't be collecting the singles and trying to sell my Complete Collection sets.

Awesome pickups, where did you find them?


Posted Image

I've been getting into board games far too much recently. I'm having a blast with Ticket to Ride, still learning Innovation, haven't tried out Android: Netrunner yet and I'll be playing Cards Against Humanity tomorrow.

I grabbed Sleeping Dogs from Best Buy during Black Friday and succinctly destroyed it and loved it. I almost bought the pink controller from there as well, but ended up trading a black one to a friend for it instead.

Got Gundam 0083 on the way. Had ordered it back in October, before it got pulled from RightStuf. Thankfully, I opted not to cancel it when that happened and just waited. It went back in stock and shipped out, right before selling out again. :D

Also waiting for another order to ship out, which may take a while all because of ONE item being ordered from Sentai Filmworks. The order consists of the GaoGaiGar Premium Holiday Bundle (Seasons 1 and 2; ordered before it sold out), Ghost in the Shell 2.0 Blu-ray, Mazinkaiser/Shuten Doji DVD Double Pack, Pretty Face Vol. 2 (and now finding Vol. 3 - 5 cheap and in great condition are going to be a pain in the ass), Redline Blu-ray and Detroit Metal City (which is what's holding up my order, as Sentai seems to have not realized this series was going to sell like crazy).

Also waiting for RS to process my order of Code Geass Season 2, Zeta Gundam Collection 2 and Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl.

Yeah $205 for those 7 games doesn't seem that great to me. That's over $25 per game. Id imagine you can get the same games on ebay for cheaper. Great games just a little over priced.

Probably the first two .hack games, yeah. But Parts 3 and 4 seem to be more difficult to find and sellers ask a lot more for them.

Thankfully, I had bought all four parts as they came out. Now G.U. is a whole other story...

I played the first one infection right after it came out. When I was a kid.

I still have the original strategy guide from when I had the game.

It was a good RPG but I doub't ill buy them back again. Now they are cult classic status and the RPG elites and anime fans go goo goo ga ga for them. Drove up the price for them.

They are extremely time consuming games so many people that buy them today won't even experience the game. I'd imagine most of them get it and add it to their collection of stuff they will only ever look at. Maybe if their lucky get past the title menu and tutorials.

I'd say yes. Part 4 of dot hack is $80 by itself, and the sealed copy if master quest is a huge value IMO. Maybe not now, but in a year or two I could see that fetching $205 by itself.

Took advantage of that nice Gamestop trade in deal. Decided to snag this while I was there. Seems to be getting around $100 on eBay :D

Thanks for the feedback guys. I've checked all the disc, manual and condition of all the games and they were all very good, which made me pick it up right on the spot.
Plus, it is kinda hard nowadays to find all .hack series in one spot!

Both used from eBay. Came to like £8-9 in total.

Had CoD3 at launch and kinda always wanted it again so thought i'd rebuy. Never played Rage but always looked interesting to me.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Thanks to the Gamestop promo I traded in Assassin's Creed 3, Portal 2, and SSBB for $79. With that and what seems to be Gamestop's sale for Wii games before they start pitching the cases (30% off titles if you buy 6 or more ) I was able to pick all this stuff up and get some change left on my card.

Posted Image

I picked up the used copy of Battalion Wars, but the guy handed me back a new copy. I have had some great luck picking up used Nintendo games with unused Nintendo Points, so this should get me a good chunk of points.

Master Quest lost some steam a few years ago, it used to sell for a lot more. Who knows if it really will go back up but it's only worth as much as people are willing to pay. A sealed copy is a big plus, If memory serves me correct, I think I got it by pre-ordering and picking up LoZ:Ocarina of Time on the N64. It's been so long, somewhere around 13-14 years ago. >_<

There's a sale on Wii titles? Hmm, I need to get in on that. :lol:

The OoT/Master Quest disc came from pre-ordering Wind Waker. :p Kinda impossible to release a GameCube package during the N64's life.

Might head to another on payday to pick up Dragon Quest Swords and Rhythm Heaven Fever. Heard quite a lot of mixed stuff about ToS: DotNW, so if that doesn't sit well with me, then I'll exchange it for Pikmin.
