Ordered this stuff late march but came in this month.

I found a Barne's and Noble card on the floor at work one day and it had 18 bucks on it. Browsed on their site for a while and only found this masterchief. Bought two of them to use up the credit, will probably sell the other or something. The games from newegg and the blu ray from Goguenator's lowball.

Here's a collection update! There's a bunch of Metal Gear Rising love in this one! I also show (and talk about) Dead Space 3 / Crysis 3, as well as some other random stuff.


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

Nice finds! Panzer Dragoon Orta is on my list of original Xbox titles to pick up as well.


mine too. I don't know why I keep passing it up, I've seen a ton of couples for $5 or so at a local store:roll:

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

They were still going for a pretty penny before the show started. Saw a few sets 1-99 or higher go for around $2000 maybe the last 6 months. Usually go for 3-4. I was thinking about buying one and then selling the key issues then the rest as a lot and keep #1. I'd make most or all my money back, so one would be free... Just would be a lot of work.

Oh yeah, they are also having a variant of number 1 for each Wizard Con this year. Portland was Michael Golden, St Louis was Arthur Suydam. Go for around. $30-60 each on eBay. The other variant cover artists haven't been announced yet.


Doesn't sound like a bad idea but selling on Ebay would be a bitch, their fees are insane :cry:

My girlfriend's brother is going to comic con down here in Tampa this year, I'm wanting to ask him to take my issues and get them signed from Kirkman to us, one with each of our names. I think that would be so tits to have a framed "From Robert Kirkman to Ethan" TWD issue #1 :lol:

Well I was just visiting my Grandfather the other day and he had aquired quite a bit of video gaming stuff over the last few years. We used to yard sale together quite a bit when I was younger and I got him aware of the fact the video games can hold quite a bit of value so he has picked up nearly any under $10 lot he found that interested him.

He recently decided he was sick of it all and asked me to sell it all for him and in return I could keep the stuff that interested me. Everything except the Pikachu N64 came from that. The Pikachu N64 I grabbed from my cousin after I helped him with his PC. Only thing not currently working is the SNES mini. Gonna have to get a gamebit so I can get some of these Nintendo consoles apart. Everything else I got from him I didn't picture but it is up on my tradelist.

Posted Image
Both of the controllers are for the Genesis. The clear one intrigued me as I have never seen one and I actually didn't own one of the Sega Turbo controllers so I kept that as well.

Posted Image

So yeah in total all this stuff was free to me.

Picked up New Super Mario Bros. Wii for $34 and some change. Not a steal, but it was a good price. It came with its original case/manual and the disc itself is in phenomenal shape. Also have Kingdom Hearts 2 coming. Ordered it at the beginning of last week and still hasn't arrived. Fucking DHL...

Dude, nice score with the Legend of Dragoon! That game is awesome! I remember playing the demo over and over and over again. Never did buy the game, but the Jampack disc with that demo on it was sure spinning a lot. And it's black label, too. Nice.

SNES prolly just needs a cleaning (lack of power indicator is a PITA with those). They're pretty tough to actually break ;)

So I keep picking up games:

April:
Posted Image
I walked into a GameStop, traded in Diamond version for $22.40, and returned Pokemon White for $24ish, and walked out with:
Blue Rescue Team
Devil Survivor 2
Kirby Super Star Ultra
Tetris DS
(and a $2 gift card)
$71 total, but $43 after B2G1 DS and a $5 coupon in a separate transaction.

Chrono Trigger
Kingdom Hearts re:Coded
Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon
$43.05 total, ordered from Gamestop.com while the codes stacked (which I think they still do... *starts rubbing hands together*)

And copypasta from March:
Fire Emblem Awakening
Etrian Odyssey 4
Gates to Infinity
LM: Dark Moon
Tetris Axis
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Mario Party DS
New Super Mario Bros. DS
Pokemon Conquest
Pokemon Soul Silver
Pokemon White
Pokemon White V2
Red 3DS XL that I got with PERFECT timing: I couldn't return it to GameStop in the 7 days by the time I heard about the Target deal.

And guess who just hit 100 games in his collection!

See my list!

Mostly from March but a few from this month so far :)

Posted Image
Kind of regretting the GOW Ascension CE. The statue of Kratos is very subpar IMO.


Posted Image
I'm running out of shelf space so for now the songbird is staying in the box.

Posted Image
Various pick ups. Oddly Brainlord is one of the few Enix games I have never played. Picked it up for $7. Pokemons were back from the BB sale.

Posted Image
Picked up Defiance yesterday (traded in games for the 50% extra promo at GS) so nothing out of pocket for that. The SF anniversary edition dropped to a price of my liking ($64) so I had to snag it for that. Very impressed with the box and design. Wish they had made physical disc for the Arcade games.

Posted Image
So happy the Artbook is a hardcover. Also snagged the last Litho when I picked up my guide and season pass at GS.

Posted Image
Thankfully Amazon.de sent me the right size steelbook this time. Bought Arkham & Noire off a friend for $10 total. Gaiden at MSRP obviously, P2 & LOTR on sale. And filling in the small holes in my PS2 collection. Oddly WOTS 1 eluded me way more than 2 did

Saw these on sale at Gamestop for $4.99 and figured some people on here might be interested; Master Chief and Cortana were the same price but the ones they had were pretty beat up. Dunno how Gamestop handles toys but I think the prices would be universal

I actually bought the singles way back when (even have Vol. 2 autographed by 4 VAs), but I can't fit the slipcover over 6 coverarts. Thought the non-S.A.V.E. edition would be in a normal case or a thinpack case like other FUNi sets, but this one is a digipak.

I have the singles too, but I have the slipcovers for them. I see, I'll just keep mine them, I enjoy looking at the art work anyway. :lol:

I feel so left out. It's weird not having a bunch of pick-ups to share with everyone. I might be getting a new house fairly soon, though, much to my dismay.

Bought B1G1 50% off at a local import/used game shop. Just need to find Volume 3 of Dual somewhere cheap. Volumes 1 and 2 I can get easy.

Posted Image

I really wish FUNi would go back to those 2 2-disc thinpak sets for their collections. Very nice packaging, much better than a simple slipcover. But no, we need more stupid combo packs apparently.
