No video game pickups as of now but I have been going a bit Blu-Ray happy over the last few weeks. Here is what I got in the last few days. The 4 regular Blu's came from the 40% off sale on gohastings from a week or two ago and the Snow White and the Huntsman steelbook cost me $12.00 at a local video game store, been looking to pick it up cheaply so I couldn't pass it at this price. I do have a quite a bit of Gamecube stuff coming in over the next week so I'll be sure to post then.

FYE of all places. They had a buy 1 get 1 50% off pre-owned. Gears was tagged at $10 and it was the cheaper of my two items so it was 50% off. :) It is complete too :D

I also saw a KH3D Mark of Mastery edition used but it was $49.99 and had a spider wrap over it. Passed though cuz I already have one.


Ahhh, ok. Thanks.

Hahaha good job! Momma probably thinks you know what you're doin now! ;)

Here's my birthday pickups, got $200 in giftcards so I picked these up

Posted Image

Casino Royale Blu Ray was on sale for $9.99 at Bestbuy
12 Month XBL Gold card was on sale for $35 at Bestbuy
Battlefield BC2 was 9.99 at a local game store
I won R&C and LBP2 for $15 total off ebay! :D
The Hyperdunk shoes were $95 at Dicks after my friend used his employee discount for me. They were soooo much more expensive than I'm used to spending, but they were the only size 14 shoes I could find and I really wanted a new pair before my game tonight. They felt a little big at first but after doubling up on socks, they fit really well!

I'm saving the rest of the giftcard to buy some ingredients to cook up a nice valentine's dinner for my girlfriend and I! :D

Picked up a ton of crap over the last few weeks (which is all detailed in my Blu-ray/DVD Spending Tab) including Freakazoid S1, Young Justice, all 5 seasons of Stargate Atlantis on BRD, and Season 4 of Breaking Bad.

Wait, did Atlus do their Etrian Odyssey trilogy bundle like they said they were going to do or did you get them elsewhere?

They just did a reprint. It was on sale at Play Asia, and I think Atlus just tweeted today that it's available on Amazon.

They were supposedly going to do a pre-order deal for buying all three together, but the only thing that seems to have come up was the three being mentioned and sold on Amazon, like you said.

Yes, I got them from their reprint through that video games plus website that they initially linked too.

As KtMack noted is was through the video game plus website that they were offering the bundle on, and the bundle was never offered as an option to be sold on Amazon, or anywhere else for that matter at that time.

Finally got this, Amazon sucks really bad when shipping out guides for some reason. Same thing happened with my Skyrim CE guide, both guides were in perfect shape, no shipping damages. Just a week late even though I pre-ordered when it went up, arg.

Already read up through most of it to catch up to where I am in the game, and pick up things I missed. Loving the game.

Yes/No. I first entered it and hit redeem and it gave me an error. I looked at it and it auto-deleted the last few numbers so I reentered them, and it worked. Spit out a normal PSN code, haven't tried that yet though.

@tooshorty very cool Steel Battalion pick up! That controller is quite the beast. I feel like I should get in a jump suit when I play it.

@everyone picking up Ni No Kuni: it's great to see this game getting so much love. Especially to those that picked up the Wizard's edition through the Ni No Starter. Thanks for helping make the NTSC version that much more special 8-).

And for my latest pick up. I am really cleaning out my trade piles from all the garage saling/ flea marketing last season. I traded in an N64 with some garbage games (best game was Pokemon Stadium & N64 was missing av cables), wireless NES controllers, and 4 PS3 games (SF4 vanilla ed, Mass Effect 2, ME3, and Battlefield 3) for these two guys. Only had to pay $50 out of my pocket.

Mega Man 7 & Mega Man X3

All I need now in the main series is Mega Man 8. Anyone know if the anniversary edition had a separate booklet for addition stuff or was it in the manual? Much thanks!

I bought very little this month as far as gaming goes. In fact, aside from a couple of digital purchases, this is basically all I got:

I did get a few nice non-gaming purchases, however. Most notably, this guy:
Posted Image
Somebody posted pictures of him on Reddit and I just had to have one...but they stopped making these in the 90s. I looked all over and there is almost no mention of it anywhere online, but I just happened to find one on eBay and it was still sealed, had only one bid, and ended in less than an hour. Obviously, I jumped on it and I am now the proud owner of Tear-Into-Staples Rex. More pictures in the spoiler below:
Spoiler

I also bought a triceratops tape dispenser, but I'm still waiting for it to arrive.



And, actually, I guess you can say this is gaming-related simply because I'm using it for my games:
Spoiler




Same goes for this, but it's not for video games:

This one really does have nothing to do with games, although I do use it while playing:

I'm in the middle of redecorating, so ignore the messy house.

You play Rule of Rose ever? Very underrated game and a very nice pick up! Not to say the rest suck or anything (you and I have very similar tastes BTW) but that is one game more people need to pick up not to mention is kind of hard to find. Nice pickups!

Thanks!
Yes, I've played through most of it with my incomplete copy (came in an awful generic GS case). I couldn't pass up a complete, near perfect copy at that price though. Anyway, it's an incredibly disturbing game, with arguably the best soundtrack I've ever heard. It's awful combat -even for a survival horror game- and my giant backlog kept me from finishing it though. I'm planning on restarting it as soon as I'm done with Ni No Kuni.

Thanks. Not that I have anything to do with him being awesome, but I'm going to take it as a compliment of my good taste or some such. Anyway, I would normally be able to pass on something like this, but I just liked him so much and with the new desk I just bought, I decided to splurge on something that is both functional and fun.

Oh man, same here. I was 10 when this was made, so dinosaurs were pretty much the only things cooler than Ninja Turtles and Spawn. I still think they're pretty awesome. My 2-year-old son is also obsessed with dinosaurs, so he got a kick out of it, but as far as he's concerned it's not nearly as cool as the dinosaurs I got him at John's Incredible Pizza.
