I forgot Sola even existed. Is it any good?


i liked it when i watched it a few years ago and its going out of print. Since its such a niche title i was worried about it not being picked up again.

Bought it mainly for Series 2 and 4. Already watched the other four through separate purchases (and own Series 1). All for about $100.

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?


I picked up a PSone with LCD screen and memory card on 1/17, I paid about $40 for that alone (the lcd screen was a huge driving factor).

The LCD screen alone can go for $40+, the games he could sell and break even, so he got a very good deal.
You would be suprised the screen is a great size because you should have it really close, I have the power cord plugged in next to my bed and the console folded up near my xbox, if I get the retro urge I can just put it right next to me and play.
Also has built in speakers and contrast - + button's. It was like the psp but better IMO.

It's nice and small and folds up, plus, built in screen, and as retro games can get iffy on a brand new 40" 1080p screen, I really think he got a GREAT deal.

Big one for me today. Id been planning on getting a Saturn for a while now. I already have a list of the games I'd like to get for it to play. I couldn't pass this lot up. It's very rare that you can start out your console collection with one of the most valuable titles. I paid $375 for this lot. That's a lot of money, and I don't know if I would have bought it if I knew at the time I was going to be paying for PS3 repair. I'm still waiting for a Vita price drop as well.

But I'm happy with this purchase. I feel I got a very good deal, and I'm excited to finally build the Saturn collection I've been thinking of for a long while.

While searching for a Saturn console, I found this lot...

I got that entire lot for less than the price of most completed auctions for PDS. Area 51 is complete and was actually also on my aformentioned list. And the best part...everything works perfectly and PDS...PDS is in immaculate condition. There is literally not a single scratch or smudge, not so much as a fingerprint or dust spec on any of the four discs. I really think its never been played (though it will be, by me). It's 100% complete--not just the manual, discs, art, and sleeves, but even the sega ad insert and the mail away for. It's all there.

This is such an exciting way for me to start my Saturn gaming.

Bored so here goes and I'm insanely jealous of Panzer Dragoon saga. Have the other two but that ones just too damn expensive right now.

Troy, DMC, and Fragile dreams are from gamestops random B2G1F coupon. My friend and I both picked up MW3 from bestbuy for $10 so we would have a new coop game to play. And I picked up Amular guide for $4 after unloading some unwanted comics to a local store, it was only $10 to begin with. Oh and more Pokemon!

Posted Image

PS2 games were from Bestbuy. Surprised to see they still had games left and they were still $1.

Posted Image

I got home and opened Elemental Master up and it was covered in Blockbuster stickers. Should have taken a pic, the damn thing had almost no visible cart and the label was covered up a little. Luckily everything came off pretty easy.

Posted Image

All the figures were from Blockbuster. The one near me is down to its last 6 days and had all toys 70% off, guides were $3 a piece, all movies $3, games 40% off. Grabbed a few things not pictured: God of War III, Killzone 3, Dragon Age 2, and Infamous 2 guides and Kirby Squeak Squad for pretty cheap. Haruhi was $30. Out of print so I figured why not.

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.

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.



Mmmmmmm, delicious TV is delicious!

LOL! Take a look at like 95% of my pickups over the months. That's sort of my thing for the most part ;)

Took a trip to the local best buys to see if they had any of the clearance titles and was able to walk away with these three for $20 or so dollars after some reward zone coupons.

Went to Best Buy after I went to the Market with my Mom. Best Buy had 10 Copies of Pikimin 2 when it said unavailable. :lol: Left with this. Wasn't interested in the other Clearanced Titles at the time. That and I also don't want to spend more money.

Be VERY careful with the PSone screen. I have two of them and the hinge on one broke after about a year of infrequent, gentle usage. The second occasionally has video distortion issues. I've reinforced the bottom seam of the screen with tape, so hopefully that will keep it from self-destructing. I'd strongly recommend that you do that with yours, as well. I baby my stuff, especially anything with a hinge, so for one to break after how I handled it should speak volumes about how fragile it is.

I had a problem with the PSOne Screen Hinge before... It popped off after I threw it down some stairs (I thought the bag was only full of clothes), but I was able to pop it back in eventually. It still works great! :lol:

That is the first I've heard of them being fragile, but I will surely be careful in handling it from now on.

As previously stated, I thought it was just a bag of clothes. I had no idea my PSOne and PSOne LCD was in there.

They both work fine and look perfect, so I'm not too upset about it.
