Another day, another good find.  

 

New and sealed Nerf Hailfire for $5.  Selling for about $45 on Amazon, but I'm tempted to keep it and add it to my already out-of-hand Nerf arsenal.

 

Also picked up a Tiger Baseball handheld for .99 and a Cars Race-O-Rama Lights and Sounds Sheriff (used, but works) for 1.99.

Good finds guy. Another strikeout for me. At least the pawn shops are being extra kind to me these days. I can only hope Thrift shops pick up when yard sale season comes around.

Nothing video game related, but I found the First season of The Wire yesterday for $3. Pretty stoked to watch it again.

I also forgot to mention that I saw the case for Skies of Arcadia: Legends for the GC and got excited.  Picked it up and case was already open and the Fuck ing disc was gone.  What a friggin' idiot, whoever stole that instead of paying the $3 to have it complete.  Cheapest price on Amazon is $60.  Complete is worth even more.   :wall:

You should've just bought the case. You could've made money on that alone.

The thrift stores around here still don't have much of anything right now, especially if its gaming related. If they do, mostly overpriced consoles.

 

My best find recently wasn't even at a thrift, a re-sealed steelbook of Resident Evil Degeneration at Dollar General for $6.

To all Pittsburgh CAGs, not video game related, but the RWB on 51 had an armory full of nerf guns and bags of bullets earlier today.

I didn't really check out the prices as I'm not at all interested in those, but they had tons.

Drat!  I'm not going to be out that way anytime soon.  Thanks for the heads-up, though.

Savers lately have been  complete busts, but the goodwills have been pretty kind, here are today's finds

 

Doctor Who Season 2 and 5(  5 is sealed) for 4.99 each

Power Puff Girls Season 1,  1.99

Gamecube controller,  3.99

Yellow N64 controller, 2.99

Superpad 64 controller red with box, 2.99

PSP system, Star Ocean First Departure, Second Evolution, Final Fantasy 20th anniversary, 39.99

 

Stoked for the PSP lot, as I've never owned and always wanted a PSP. Final Fantasy is missing manual, other games complete

Yellow N64 controller alittle loose on the analog, all controllers need alittle cleaning.

Had a 10 off credit, so whole lot was 10 bucks cheaper which was a nice bonus.

Active Life Explorer looks like The Best Game Of All Time

Every thrifter goes through this symptom and scenario:  Find a cheap bad looking game, pass on it.  Then check it later on, knowing they can at least make $8-10 bucks on the game if they flip it.  After wallowing in self loathing for a day or two, they resolve to stop by again and buy it if its still there.  The heavier the find drought, the more likely this will happen.

 

Is Radiata Stories that game with like 300 characters or something? I kept wanting to try it, but the more I read about it, the worst it sounded.

 

Spot goes to Hollywood sounds like it could be a gem as well.

Yeah, basically the game encourages you to play through it a few times to build up relationships with the hundreds of available characters (subsequent playthroughs retain the relationship logs).  Good for those who like to replay RPGs, but so far that's not really me (except for PM TTYD).

 

Spot goes to Hollywood is a decent game, originally played it on the Genny, but not as good as Cool Spot for both Gen and SNES.

 

Finds at the local thrifts in the last week or so:

And my favorite find, The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D Official Soundtrack for 1.99

Didn't someone else on here find the MM OST recently?

Not a gaming find sadly, but I did find a great deal elsewhere.

 

Scored a NorthFace vest for $3. Was happy about that!

Picked up NASCAR Season 2003 for 2.99 today. In the box. Was pretty pumped to find that! But sadly, that was my only good find.

They had an original game boy for 29.99... I'm not a fan of the new pricing at my good wills.

These games were $3 each. Labels are in bad shape but pretty decent price.

Was out of town for the weekend at a gamestop and wasn't paying attention to the worker at the front. Bought Metroid: Other M for about $7.50, later on at home realized they had put Metroid Prime Trilogy in the case. Not too shabby.

Past few days have been decent for me, even videogame-wise.

 

360 Les Paul guitar for 2.99, in amazing condition.

Star Wars X-Wing Alliance PC for $2

A bunch of random toys and plush to resell

 

And today I decided to drop in since my daughter missed the bus and I had to drive her to school.  Big finds of the day are a sealed Skylanders Bash (clear blue variant) for .99 and a console-only TG16, with King of Casino inside it.  Console is a bit filthy and no idea if it works, but for $1.99 it was worth the chance.

 

I'm heading back over later today to see if they put out anything else for it.

nice score on the TG-16 console, I found one at a garage sale years back with 15 games for $20. I love that console, I had one back in the day, chose it over the genesis.

tg-16 would be a stroke inducing find for me, very nice find!

 

I stopped by the anime filled GW from last wek before class today, and found MX vs ATV Untamed for PS3 CIB for 3 bucks. also grabbed New Super Mario Bros Wii in the sleeve for 3 bucks. picked it up and it was heavy- because there was a copy of Wii Sports and Jeopardy in the sleeve with it. I was alright with that lot.
