Took advantage of GW's TV-for-99¢ sale, and got a nice one for my older systems. That was about it.

Recent thrift finds. Haven't seen decent video games in ages but I couldn't help grabbing this tangentially-related stuff.

Spoiler

Zelda Spirit Tracks LE guide & MGS 3 guide for $1 each. MGS3 is one of my top games evar and the guide has a foldout/poster type thing which is neat.

Spoiler

Little Pokemon plushes for $1 each (Kyogre, Ho-oh, Latios, and Mew.) These are from The Pokemon Company and for a buck each I couldn't resist. Ho-oh is my favorite, just look at 'im.

Spoiler

Finally, some DVD's. Avatar Book 2 for $5, Clone Wars vol. 2 and Ponyo for $3 each. I got CW vol. 1 at a garage sale years ago (yay) but it turns out I have Ponyo on :br: already, from Blockbuster I think.


Do you live by Manhattan? Good finds. Trying to find some better thrift stores.

Picked up an N64 with all cables, two controllers and a handful of games for $15. I would've passed, but one of the games is the first Mario Party, and that alone was worth the price. Also came with Goldeneye, Diddy Kong Racing, and a stack of sports games.

Thanks. Nope, I live out on Long Island. Wish I had some useful tips to share but with thrift stores, it's really all about persistence. Keep going and eventually something decent has to show up.

Went to the local one, and finally saw something of interest: the complete Oz series. The man behind the counter probably wanted something like $10 a season. I didn't really want to pay for a show I wasn't familiar with so I passed. It was a pretty odd find since the store donations seem to come from mostly Orthodox Jewish people. Looks like somebody felt ashamed of having this in their home.

Found a copy of .hack volume 3 redemption for $13! Normally I wouldn't pay that much for a PS2 game (pawn shops around here have a habit of checking eBay now :/) but I guess they really don't check to see what older games are rare, and apparently it's worth a nice chunk of cash. It came in Volume 4's case though, and no manual.

Such a shame that they're trying to go off of Gamestop/eBay, I could usually find some fairly recent games at a great price.

Stopped by a new (to me) thrift store today. Aside from a pretty good copy of Beast Wars Season 1 (Rhino release) everything else was ultra-scratched up junk from Blockbuster or Redbox.

Why is it there are like, 6 or 7 thrift stores within a 10 mile radius from my house but only 1 is any good?

I go to SAVERS 5 days a week usually 2-3 hours per day (when they stock). I didn't go 2 Tuesdays ago. I found out that my 'scanner friend' bought 5 or 6 PS1 RPGS. The titles I've confirmed are: Brigadine, Persona 2, Suikoden 1 and 2. He only paid 2.99 each. They are all complete. I was ready to cry. He usually only checks video games after I look through them as I don't check books since that is his main thing. I'm glad he got them, but pissed at myself for not being there.

WiiU games and 3DS games showing up at my goodwills - probably idiots who did target returns thinking they worked on regular Wii or DS.

The $10 NSMB U was a surprise. Thought she was gonna say like $25 or more. The other Goodwill had Assassins Creed 3 and Just Dance 4 for Wii U for $40 apiece. I said "I can get those for brand new on Amazon for that price". Guy says they are new.....my response "than why do they not have plastic wrap on them and have Target Defective Salvage stickers???". He says "uhhhh good point".

I have found about half of my 3DS collection from Goodwills Target returns though, only paid $4-$25 apiece.

Oh man thats brutal. Suikoden 2 is my favorite rpg of all time, and I have been hoping to find one in the wild for years now. Have the others in my ps1 collection, but a pretty nice score for that other dude.

Managed to find a 64 with two controllers, rumble pack, and memory card for $10 at GW. AV cable was mangled, but I have a spare I can use. Best part is, I got it home and found out it had the memory expansion. Nintendo brand, too.

Today I made a trip to the GW before work and got Rockband 3 for the Wii 5$ Complete. Three days ago I had seen a Gamecube with a Intec Screen on it, too bad I had to wait two days to get my paycheck. It was 24.99 and came with call of duty 2 the screen looked like it was in great shape and the gamecube unit itself was a black console in great condition. no wires or controllers though but looking up some websites the screen is worth quite some money.

That officially beats my purchase price for Suikoden II. I paid $5. But to be fair, it probably wasn't a hot collectible at that time.

Got my GC with Intec Screen for $10 at GW last year. Too bad it didn't come with the wires for the Screen. :(

Yeah, just be cautious of the PS3 guitars. They need the USB dongle. I picked up two last week for $2 each, not realizing the dongles were missing.

Still no games but here's some more stuff anyways.

The Art of Fullmetal Alchemist: The Anime & The Land of Sand novel

Found these mixed in with a bunch of shojo manga at SA, paid $1 each.

Posted Image

These are from a different thrift; Halo & Baldur's gate novels, Naruto movie animanga, and Bo-Bobo vol. 1. $3 for the whole bunch. These were on a shelf with almost 100 Star Wars and D&D novels but I really have no idea which ones, if any, were worth grabbing so I just picked the few video game novels instead.

Posted Image

Also grabbed this Dreamweaver 4 (Mac) student copy. It's pretty old and a bit beat up, but on the other hand it's sealed so I figured there might be some value.
