This is probably going to be the most boring pickup I've ever shared. This is seriously all I have bought entertainment-wise this month:

love that bender. Where did you get it?

I won it in a lowball here. I love those things, they're pretty fun to look at. I don't know if you can get specific characters on the kidrobot site anymore though. I think they only do blindboxes now.

Bought a lovely copy of Eternal Sonata :ps3: for $4.99 from Buybacks. :applause: I very nearly bought a copy of Super Mario All-Stars for $18.99 but I figured I could do better. They also had Final Fantasy II and Saturday Night Slammasters which I'm contemplating going back for.

Decided to continue to bolster my Sega Genesis collection since SNES games have skyrocketed in price annoyingly so I have picked up these in the last week.


^^^ This. But I don't mind I, Genesis is awesome and extremely cheap to get a great collection. Sadly from my previous post I return Earth Defense, ranger X, and Galaxy Force II since they would not work no matter what I did. In exchange I picked these up.

Had great pick-ups for this week alone! I only paid $10.79 for the RE:ORC, Bulletstorm, FIFA 12 & both Prince of Persia. Friend wasn't interested in the sonic encyclopedia and decided to just let me have it!

I also agree with this, to me Genesis collecting is way more appealing because a) I grew up with a Genesis; b) the games are WAY cheaper; and c) they're easier to get complete due to the plastic cases most of them have.

Of course that doesn't stop me from grabbing NES & SNES games whenever I see 'em but I think Genesis is a much better entry point to the collector on a budget.

So happy to finally get MS Saga and King's Field. Those two were two big RPG holes in my collection on PS2. Got Harvest Moon 64 on the cheap. Time to put my UGC's to good use now :D
Used the GS Birthday Coupon to get Mario All-Stars (I have the big box and case already(a friend gave them to me when he traded his copy in) so the case in the pic is an extra)

Best Buy was good to me and my buddy yesterday. We each got 1 copy of pretty much every worthwhile guide we wanted. I didn't get Gears 3 hardcover as I didn't want another one.

Thanks, I'm glad you approve of my choices. Fifth Element was actually my wife's pick, but I probably would've picked it up anyway. There were actually a lot of good choices in the Walmart bargain bin, but we managed to narrow the selection from 12 movies down to these 4.

They are CAG-run auctions where you can usually get some pretty good deals from fellow members.

@ZombieToest, how is Dewers Taffy? I've thought about ordering a few times but just haven't pulled the trigger. My friends nephew goes to school their, I might ask him and see if he can pick me up some.

I'm probably not the best person to ask because I don't like taffy and I've only ever tried one flavor (grape). Most people swear by the stuff, though. I mean, this place must be doing something right if they've been open for 100 years, can maintain more than one location, and can get away with charging outrageous prices. I bought 32 pieces (two of each flavor), which cost me just shy of $10. I suppose that's not horrible compared to other specialty candies, but I'm a cheap-ass. Heh.

What I can tell you is that the candy isn't super sweet like stuff you would find in stores. It is also much softer and easier to chew compared to any other taffy I've ever tried. They also have interesting flavors; my sister says the peanut butter ones have actual peanut butter in the center. If you can get some from your buddy's nephew, I say go for it because I have yet to hear/see a negative review for the place. If you want, you can order it online (online orders get a small discount) and then have it picked up in the store. Of course, if you're going to do that, you might as well get some thumbprint cookies from Smith's as well. Freakin' delicious...

On the topic of snacks, some PA snacks are only available in the state, or some areas in and/or around the state. The link below is a place that will send said items to other places in the country.

Middleswarth BBQ chips are my personal favorite

HERE

On topic: Picked up 2 atari 2600 games for $3 a piece and picked up Assassin's Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations (:ps3:) for around $9 / $10 each

Edit: @zombietoast, The sequels for the lost boys and Donnie Darko, are something you should never look for, they are terrible.

Ha ha, I actually already have the Lost Boys sequels. I haven't watched The Thirst yet, but I thought The Tribe was okay. Obviously, it is FAR inferior to the original, but it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. As for S Darko...I'm really torn because it sounds horrible and a sequel makes no fucking sense whatsoever, but I have this morbid curiosity even though I know it will just upset me. I may eventually watch it before I die, but not yet...

Odd thread to ask, It was ANYWHERE you could buy the Hyrule Historia LE = OMFGWTFBBQ.
It's just very high demand and only 4000 printed. So it's just worth showing you got 1 and it's condition (as it's packaging/handling wasn't the best in most places *cough amazon*)

Guide isn't in the best shape with some loose pages but for $15 it was a good buy I think. I have never played these 2 Zelda games and am very excited to try them finally :D

Final Fantasy IV was a re-pick up and apparently is OOP and going up in price. Got the copy of Revelations: Demon Slayer for $20. There is a little sticker residue and a few dings but a good copy :)

I've been noticing that about a lot of DS games, have you seen the prices on Okamiden, they were piratically giving the game away for a while. I guess it doesn't help out that GS throws away the cases, this should be a crime!

Picked up the Heavens Lost Property movie, a big giant box of Hot Fries, and Street Sharks: Complete Series. Cookie Jar spared no expense on this set. It is 4 discs (with 10 episodes on each disc) and they are packaged in sleeves fastened inside a DVD case. Never mind that 4-disc standard cases are incredibly cheap nowadays.
