Tales From The Thrift #001 - April 2011: So Much Fun And It's Only A Dollar!
Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey(PS1) - $2: Goodwill find w/ O:AE, RRT4, MW2, HL.
Oddworld: Abe Exodus(PS1) - $2: Goodwill.
Syphon Filter 3 - Missing Manual(PS1) - $3
Ridge Racer Type 4(PS1) - $3: Goodwill. When I saw this, my eyes lit up. I remember playing the demo for this game well over ten years ago. This was the first time I've come across it in almost a decade. No way I wasn't getting it.
Rival Schools(PS1) - $45: MUCH more than I wanted to pay, but it was complete and I doubted I'd find a better deal on it.
Parappa The Rapper w/cover art, but missing manual(PS1) - $2: Pawn shop. KICK! PUNCH! IT'S ALL IN THE MIND!
Mechwarrior 2(PS1) - $3: Goodwill.
WWF Royal Rumble(SNES) - $0.95
King Of The Monsters(SNES) - $5
Power Rangers(SNES) - $6: Not quite as good as I remembered it being. The Pink Ranger is just the Red Ranger sprite painted pink. Does Kimberly have a secret?
ESPN Sunday Night NFL(SNES) - $0.25
WWF Raw(SNES) - $0.95
Where In Time Is Carmen Sandiego(SNES) - $4: It's a contradictory game. They give you a time limit in a game where you go back in time to catch a thief. Why give you a 37 hour time limit WHEN YOU HAVE A FUCKING TIME MACHINE!?
Stargate - Complete(Gen) - $1.45: Shit.
Ranger X(Gen) - $1.45: I judged a book(or, in this case, game) by its cover and it turned out better than I was expecting.
Half-Life - Missing Manual(PS2) - $2
World Series Baseball '95(Gen) - $0.55: I've had the Game Gear version for about 15 years and love it to pieces.
Twister DVD - $3: "My favorite Helen Hunt movie, TWISTER!"
Jerry Seinfeld Live On Broadway: I'm Telling You For The Last Time DVD - $2
WWE Wrestlemania XXVI 3 DVD Set - $6: Pawn shop. HBK/Taker II was great, but I think their first WM match had better pacing. Surprisingly, my favorite match on the show was Cena/Batista. It had a solid back-and-forth action, the pacing was great and it "told a story"(is this really a John Cena match?).
Ring Of Honor Wrestling DVD's - $2 Each
Crackdown(360) - $1: It's scratched to the point where I had to mute the audio to get it to play beyond a certain point. Once I got through that one point, it plays just fine.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare(360) - $1: Haven't spent too much time with it, but it's not nearly as scratched as Crackdown. Should be fine.
Sonic CD(PC) - $1.50: Goodwill. You can play it like a normal music CD. Great soundtrack, as always for the earlier Sonic games.
Austin Powers Original Soundtrack - $0.25
The Beatles - Abbey Road - $0.92: Listened to it why I typed this post up. It's legendary for a reason.
Nappy Roots - AWNAW Single - FREE BIN
No Doubt - Rock Steady(Sealed) - $0.95
Stevie Ray Vaughn - Texas Flood - $2.45: Also listened to this why typing this up. Such good album.
