Got a Dragon Age: Origins hardcover guide for $10 at a used book shop. That's a good price, right?

His prices are retail and his shipping is low and super fast.

They had great coupons before, where you could get half off Legos and board games (including stuff like Westeros, Catan, etc).

They were also the first place I've been able to find Unicorno series 2s.

Last time I bought a book there though... hmm. Three or so years ago?

Haha damn sounds like I missed out. Most of the B&N closed in the SF Bay area so I'm missing out.

A few recent pickups:

I'm so glad I finally have the Devil Summoner games, Got them for $30 each at a local game shop. They were the only two PS2 SMT games that I was missing, the collector's editions of Persona 3 and DS2 notwithstanding.


Posted Image
Grabbed Xenoblade at GS for <$40 with the birthday coupon before the price went up to $60.
And lastly, I found the Cowboy Bebop at a pawn shop for $17, everything but the case is in perfect condition. Does anyone care to share a good, cheap, way to remove sticker residue on cases?

If you want to splurge a little bit, Goo-Gone works wonders. Just make sure you're in a well-ventilated area so the fumes don't kill you.

I use 99% alcohol to clean off stickers on my case. Nice to see another cag also picking up Magna Carta 2 this week also. Finally found coppies in my area mine looks brand new I was surprised.

It takes a little more work and there are some it can't get, but I can get most residue off using simple Clorox wipes.

Not exactly video game related (although the graphic is video games) but I'm hoping the purchase helps usher in some warm weather here in Wisconsin so I can actually use this.

I actually found a little bottle of goo gone at the dollar section in Target a few weeks ago.

Not to mention a little Goo-Gone goes a long way, so even the tiny $1 bottles will last you for some time.

Goo Gone is orange oil. Won't hurt anyone (as long you don't ingest it).

Are you thinking of Goof Off? That stuff is caustic and breaks down ABS plastic. DO NOT use it on your games. EVER.


If you guys want a really gentle, super effective solvent that will not damage cart labels or other printed paper products, then check my blog ;) 25+ years of cleaning carts and sticker goo and I haven't ever found a better product.

The bottle says to use in a well ventilated area, as it contains petroleum distillates and citrus terpenes

It's definitely a pretty strong smell. Probably won't kill you, but I wouldn't want to inhale more of it than I'd have to.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! I think I'll go hunt down some of that Bestine, I ruined the insert for one of my games last time I tried taking sticker residue off the spine, really don't want that to happen again.

No, it'll give you cancer, and that will kill you
