I generally don't like steelbooks, but that Tomb Raider case is pretty nice.

Only paid $20 for Pokemon, which normally runs anywhere from 2x to 5x that price. Now the only saga that I need is Johto. Need one more JLC, one more Master Quest disc, and all of Johto Journies.

I rremember playing the shit out of Bomberman Hero when I was a kid. Never played Power Rangers before but my spoiled cousin had it and never let me touch any of his games or toys.

Got these for a dollar each at the flea market, took some cleaning but the N64 games work, A Link To The Past works but it has some graphical issues on the loading screen and map.

Nice flea market finds! Did you take the SNES cart apart and clean the contacts real good? Sometimes I need an eraser so I can really polish them.

Bought the Record of Agarest War Zero LE from Newegg. Missed out on it earlier, but I'm glad I could get in on this one. :lol:
Posted Image
Went to my monthly trip to the Goodwill of Anaheim. (Don't visit much unless my Mom and I have to go the 99 Ranch Market). Typically a hit or miss. But this time, I think it was a hit. I looked through the DVD Container thing, and I managed to find Seasons 1-4 of Supernatural. Sealed, complete with Best Buy Stickers. The Price, 6.99. Too bad it wasn't a Blue Tag, otherwise it would've been 50%. I also saw a few Dead Zones Seasons. But I wasn't that interested in it. Someone just've donated a part of their collection. Or just never got to it. Haha.

I've been watching a lot of Super Sentai and Kamen Rider lately (Power Rangers and Masked Rider in the States). Saw this, and decided to pick it up. It was only a $1. I also want a Kamen Rider Belt so I can say "Heshin!" and do the transformation pose. :lol:

Arc Rise is a fantastic RPG, but the localization absolutely destroys it. :/

I plan to. I missed out on a lot of games from the Wii so I'm slowly gonna pick them up as I wait for some good WiiU titles, although Monster Hunter is calling my name. I'd like to get Xenoblade but the price of that went through the roof.

It came in a generic case with a different cover art. Considering that I condense my collections anyway (Advanced Battle first half has the Volume 1 cover) it doesn't matter much. And this is the first time I have seen a copy under $45 in years.

I got an Optimus Prime not-Lego! It was really fun to build and took me a couple of days, but I think it was worth the $30 I paid for it. I picked it up from Wal-Mart on clearance. I also picked up a Megatron not-Lego.

It's a serious story. It's got all the melodrama that one would expect from a Square game. There's political turmoil, many characters die, etc. This is meant as a serious story. The translation does NOT do a good job conveying this, though. What's going on always feels at odds with how it is being presented. I remember the translation's text feeling stiff and insipid, but that is overshadowed by the bigger issue; The translation's most egregious offence really is the voice acting.

It is pathetically bad, and it is the principle reason I quit playing the game when I did (after 25 hours or so). It is borderline Chaos Wars bad. There is no Japanese option, so you are just stuck with the US voices. You could turn them off, but given that your characters holler out to you in battle (some of these things are actually important, especially in boss fights) and are still clearly talking all throughout the game, it left me feeling like my character had lost his hearing for some reason and was rendered deaf. It was by no means a nice alternative. I just can't digest a serious story delivered in such a ridiculous manner.

Freespace I found at a local place for $2, Fire Emblem from a trade with a friend, and the PSone stuff all was from a Craigslist lot for $80. I plan on getting rid of Thousand Arms since I already have a copy, so that'll drive down the price pretty good. I've been wanting a PSone with the mini screen for quite some time now.


Posted Image

I'm impatient and got a new TV, a Samsung UN55ES6003 from AWD for $775. It didn't come in the original box and one of the TV stand screws was nearly completely stripped, but it looks absolutely flawless. The TV on the ground is my old 42" for a size comparison.

Playing retro games is going to be ruff on a tv that size:-#isn't $80 for a PSone pretty high? Or are the games just really valuable (I haven't looked into which PS1 games are expensive lately). How does the screen look?

Given that Thousand Arms can go for $40-60, paying that extra little bit for the other games and the system itself is just fine. lol

Ok, first time I'm jealous of someone's pickups in awhile. I think I searched years for a cheap copy of Thousand Arms, and never found it. That, and Thread of Fate both elude me.

What did you want the PSone for? Just for collecting, or to play? Because we have a PS2 with an add-on screen, which seems much more useful, since it plays PS1+PS2.

Diablo on PS alone is about $50. It's not deal of the century, but still a good price for the lot.

I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my retro systems right now. Apparently aside from the absolute top-of-the-line models, companies have really started skimping on inputs. I'll need to pickup an HDMI switch for my PS3/360/Cable box, a DVI->HDMI adapter for my PC, and come up with something to hook up my Wii component cables and composite switch at the same time (it unfortunately has one shared composite/component). For the time being it'll have to suffice though until I get a house and can steal my 36" Trinitron CRT back from my parents' house

For the PSone, as Zaku and Elessar said, the two games are worth a decent amount each and almost enough to justify the price tag on them alone.

I was fortunate enough to get a copy of Thousand Arms in a lot several years ago, but I've yet to find another aside from this one at a good price. Threads of Fate on the other hand was a huge goal for me at the time(for some reason playing the demo at Target one time really stuck with me). I paid a bit over what I typically buy games for that one I'm sure.

For the PSone, I was always intrigued by the re-release model, and absolutely love how awesome it looks with the add-on screen. It's nice, small and compact, and a ton of nostalgia. I'm not sure how much I'll actually end up using it considering I also have my PS2, PS3 and a hacked PSPGo, but we shall see.
