    Selling my stuff....

Posted 29 April 2004 - 11:12 PM

But does anyone here know of a store in Boston that will buy strategy guides? Cash or credit, I don't care which 'cuz I have a closet full of guides from as far back as the psone days and I really need to get rid of them.


There is a place in Cambridge, Harvard Square that buys Strat. Guides for 50 cents to a $1.00. It is in the Garage. The store is called All Your Game, and it is located in a little snook of the stairwell. When you stop by the little shop, tell him that the guy upstairs @ Tokyo Kid sucks. It's an inside joke.


Hey I've been there a couple times! Did you know they closed down Chibi Toys? Tokyo Kid is a really good store, and All Your Game is a tiny, tiny, hole in the wall (literally) place. Prices = decent, nothing to leave home for, but if you're around, interesting to check out.


Chibi Toys, Tokyo Kid, and All Your Game are all owned by the same guy. It's the same company, and everything that was once in Chibi Toys is in the Tokyo Kid shop.

For anyone interested, here is what I found at Gamestop in Field's Corners

PSONE
Suikoden I--$30
Vandal Hearts II $20 (there were two copies out in the racks, one had a real mint looking original case I assume they have at least one mint and complete copy)
Guilty Gear $15
Xenogears Greatest Hits--$18
Kartia--$13
Hosigami: Ruining Blue Earth $35 NEW!!!
Legend of Mana $25 NEW!!!!

They have used copies of Disgaea for $45. It could be less as the box may not have the updated price. Something to remember when they have their buy two get one free sale again.


All Dreamcast items are 30% off. Not much of a selection but they did have Marvel vs Capcom 1 (just the CD) and part 2.

Hey, I am a Mass CAG. I live on the South shore near Plymouth. Let me know if anyone in this area needs help finding stuff as I regularly go around looking for deals.

BTW: my TRU has a copy of Hoshigami for $21 if anyone's interested...

Here's another Mass gamer... I usually go to the Target and Circuit City in Somerville. I haven't found much stuff in the Target, but the CC almost always has what I'm looking for. Where is this CD Spin? I work near Downtown Crossing but I don't think I've ever seen it...

CD Spins in Downtrown crossing (just a brief walk up the street from Sam Goody) had Power Stone (DC), Destrega, Fighters Impact (import) and some other stuff I can't remember.

The one in Copely had Red Dead Revolver for $22 on XBOX.
Strawberries in Downtown Crossing has a neat deal where you save $5 on each game when you buy 4 or more. This a good way to get PH/GH/PC titles or some of the 9.99 psone games.

I've seen Mobile Light Force, Wu Tang and Wild 9 for $10 and Arc the Lad Collection rung up at $30 (new copy I suppose).

Best Buy has been good to me. Not that I found most of the stuff I wanted, just that some of those $5 have a good resell value at FYE.

I guess that's the price you pay for living in/near large metropolitan areas. Between Saugus, Cambridgeside, and Landmark, all the millions of people with disposable income (or $5.24 in this case) all can get to the punch pretty easily.

I live like 10 minutes walk from Cambridgeside and have yet to buy a game there, because, between all the damn people in the city and greedy employees, there's hardly ever anything worth buying, left.

Ah, gotta love the Bean.

The employees in the Cambridge Galleria Best Buy are ALWAYS snatching up the best deals before anyone else gets a chance. That's why I need to go and befriend some more of those workers (my old buddies left).

Like evilmax, I checked Square One and also Liberty Tree. There is nothing at either one. Not one $5 game. :(



Edit: Has anyone checked Framingham Best Buy @ Shopper's World? I haven't had a chance to get out there (mostly because of MA's lacking in this sale). Thanks!

Going off the topic of the BB fiasco. the Target in South Bay Plaza has exactly 1 copy of True Crime for XBOX and one for PS2.

All it takes is for one person to buy it and it's a 49% raincheck!!!

You're right about that... I got the last copy of NCAA Football 2004 at the BB in Saugus and took it in to Strawberries for $26 cash :D I almost had a heart attack when she told me the trade in value.

Damn..the strawberries downtown rejected like 7 of my games yesterday (apparently having more than 1 copy of a game means they are full). I'm trying again today, if that doesn't work then Fuck it, I'll go to another FYE store and settle for store credit.

And the best buy in Landmark center has some double pack ps2 games for $5!

Spyro/Pac Man World 2
Crash/Splashdown
Ace Combat 4/Midnight Club

Not the best set of games but you can't beat 2 for $5 and they have like at least 8 sets for each.

Somene let us know if you find something similar in the Dedham, Cambridge, or whatever BB you go to.

I also seen
Ultimate Muscle (GBA, jeez nobody wants this I take it?)
Big Mutha Truckas (XBOX, 1 copy)
Disney Extreme Skate adventure (1 copy on XBOX, 3 on GC)
I-Ninja 1 copy (GC)
Star Wars: Clone wars (GC, about 3 copies)
Star Wars Starfighter (XBOX, 2 copies)
Jimmy Neutron (GBA) 1 Copy
Smash Cars (PS2)


For 9.99
Jurassic Park Operation Genesis (plenty of copies) PS2
Tony Hawk 3 (GC)

They also had some ps1 games for $5 like Tomb Raider 3 and Crash 3, didn't pay much attention. They still have one copy of Putter Golf, which is .99 cents. Some bastard bought like 8 copies of 102 Dalmations on Tuesday when it was .99 cents.

Tony Hawk 2X (XBOX)

$15
Timesplitters (GC)
Future Tactics (PS2)
Max Payne (XBOX)


$15 after GGC

Landmark Best Buy is pretty much done with $5 stuff. All they had left was Jet X520 (or something), JImmy Neutron and Ultimate Muscle.

Anyone find a Blockbuster store that is doing the 50% off all games promotion?

I called 4 Blockbuster stores in Boston and 1 in Quincy, none of them is doing the 50% off deal.

The Malden BLockbuster is the best store I went to so far though. They had tons of used games for sale last time I went a few months ago.

By now you've probably already been to the BB in Framingham, so I'm probably too late to save you a trip. :) But I was there early last week, and I didn't see anything.
