Amazon keep shipping my Hitman trilogy in a padded envelope, so I keep getting them with creases and dents. You can't ship a boxed item in a padded envelope and expect them to arrive undamaged--so annoying! It's minor and cosmetic, so many wouldn't mind, but that's not what I want from a new item.

Check out my youtube channel! I do video game collection updates, unboxings, final impressions, and intelligent game industry commentary.  Expect lots of collector's editions, as well as steelbooks from all over the world! :D

I was looking to expand my Gamecube collection a little bit. Paid ebay prices for all of these but wanted to get a few more games so it was worth it.

I got both 3DS games from the Best Buy sale, the two PS1 games in pristine condition from Craigslist for $5 total and the Xbox and Saturn games for $3 a piece from a local store. I've been meaning to pick up Syberia for a while, I don't own any of the Oddworld's yet, and I'd be hard pressed passing up a mint Saturn case for that price.

Yay completing things.

Kirby from Best Buy, Fire Emblem from Amazon and spent about $5 on the NES controller.

Correct. Just in case anyone is new to the site, do expect to spend at least 2x your total when you include shipping. It's a tad ludicrous, but certainly beats trying to find awesome condition boxes/manuals in the wild.

Wow, sweet pick ups RPGer!!! So much CE goodness! And looking at your pick ups make e want to get a Wii to enjoy some Mario!

Spoiler






:ps3:
Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 always looked fun, and I love the cover so I figured that I couldn't go wrong for $14.99
College Hoops 2K8 was $9.99 and it's a somewhat rare game.
NBA 2K8 was $.99 and I can import my 2K8 draft class to it. Also fulfills my taste to play some 2K since I sold 2K13 earlier in the week.
:360:
Fable 2 was $2.99 at Gamestop, I've been having an itch to play it lately
Quantum of Solace was $2.99 and I gotta say, it is pretty dang fun. Not great, but solid.
:br:
Skyfall was $19.99 at Target. Phenomenal movie, in fact, I'm watching it again right now lol. Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem were amazing in this movie.
Quantum of Solace (not pictured) was a valentine's gift from my lovely girlfriend, that was a great movie as well!

Ugh, I spent way too much on imports from dv8mad, couldn't resist. Not sure what to think on how I did. I got:

Sega CD Ram Cart (Japanese, no region lock)
Space Invaders (Saturn)
Vampire Savior (Saturn)
Shining Force 3 Scenario 2 (Saturn)
Shining Force 3 Scenario 3 (Saturn)
Christmas Nights (Saturn)
Frame Gride (Dreamcast)
Mushihimesama Futari (Xbox 360)
Virtual On Force (Xbox 360)
+an audio cd (approx $20)

Grand total of $143 shipped, lets say $120 for just the games. I think I can nearly justify that with the two 360 games and the Sega CD ram cart alone but I still feel like I spent too much.

Decided to post here in here, seems like a great way to keep my collection up to date and share my collection with you guys. These pickups are from the last few days.

Was at Best Buy today and saw the thread about used PS2/PSP games being dropped down to 99 cents. Decided to pick up anything that seemed halfway decent especially for 89 cents after GCU discount. Didn't have much of a PS2 collection so this was a great way to start up a collection.

Posted Image


These are just a couple of cheap PS3 games i picked up from GameStop for. Used my birthday 20% off coupon to pick them up. Bulletstorm and RE:ORC came from Best Buy for 7 bucks total.

Posted Image

These two games are the same, picked them up from GS for cheap. Been wanting Lollipop Chainsaw but have been waiting for a decent price. Bulletstorm was cheap from Best Buy.
I've been looking for a genuine MS Wired Controller. Walked into GameStop today and the worker (that i'm friends with) asked if i wanted one since somebody just traded in a great condition one. So ended up picking up the controller and renewing my PUR pro membership.

That is literally a pickup dreams are made of. Congrats. :-#

I am loving CL lately. I just picked this lot up for $35. I originally had agreed to $30 for everything minus Road Rash and King's Field, but the long boxes are in superb condition and I couldn't pass them up upon seeing them.

Mostly everything is in great shape, a few cases are a tad scratched as is the CTR and Road Rash disc, but FF7 and Legaia are mint. Heart of Darkness is missing the manual, but Legaia has a random Jade Cocoon demo disc randomly in it. Anyone happen to know where that is from?

That jade cocoon demo might be from the game Shadow Madness. I checked my copy and it has it in it.

That was one of the games that was advertised, so it certainly would make sense to me.
