Found Diablo at a thrift store (may go in the trade pile). Picked up Goldeye at Big Lots for the controller. Found Infinite Space at a Gamestop. And finally picked up Tingle's Rosey Ruppeland. This game is weird but very fun.

Not going to post pics unless requested because the system is in atrocious condition.

Bought a white Wii with the cords and a Monopoly game for $20 total. The owner really needed money. It was $30 at first but I talked him down :D Work fine but damn is it in bad shape. Needs a lot of cleaning. Also the GC controller slot cover was gone :/

Oh well I'll still make a profit when I sell this online anyway.

Well here it is. It's actually a lot cleaner after I washed the sides a bit. There was originally a lot of dirt. Now there's just some scratches on the sides.

Also I am picking up another great deal tomorrow- Halo 3 Edition Xbox 360 HDD, Black Ops, and a white 360 wireless controller for $35 :D Excellent start for this month!

Random side not, but what are some good YouTubers that upload pick-ups? AlphaOmegaSin and HellDestroyer77 (also a fellow CAG who posts his videos here) are two of my favorites.

You should just make a new thread and ask this in general. Might make for an interesting read.

Good idea, but any idea where to post it? I also noticed I said side "not". :lol:

I think this section would be fine, since it is a discussion of shopping of sorts.

Also, I think I'm confused as what you meant by "Random side not" as I'm not familiar with that expression or what it's in reference to. :*(

Ah, it all makes perfect sense now. But still in response, I think it's in the right section and thread, but you'll probably get actual responses if you had it in its own thread. But it all makes sense now. ^__^

No problem! I would've mentioned you by your CAG name, but I couldn't remember it. :lol:

I love your videos and I actually found out about AlphaOmegaSin through your channel as well.

Yeah, just post it in this section, "Deal/Shopping Discussions & Bragging Rights" since it is essentially a discussion about shopping.

I started playing the Gears of War 3 I picked up last week, I took quite the liking to the game so I decided to start the franchise from the beginning. Itook my Gears of War 3 and 360 copy of NBA 2K11 and traded it to my best friend for his 360 copy of Skyrim and his 360 copy of Mass Effect 2 that I sold to him last summer (sold it to him for 20 bucks along with a Tori Black highlight DVD :lol:)

Me and my friend then took a trip down to my local game store and traded in the Skyrim he traded me and my 360 copy of Battlefield. With that 60 dollar credit I picked up-
Posted Image
:ps3: Skyrim- $49.99
:360: Gears of War- $3.99
:360: Gears of War 2- $7.99

also pictured is the Mass Effect 2 I traded for.

Not pictured were a few DVDs I picked up from that game store:
Coach Carter-sealed- $1.99
Cast Away- $1.99
Nacho Libre- $1.99


I'm now lookin forward to pickin up GOW3 again once I beat the first 2. I'm also lookin at giving the Assassin's Creed series a try again once I complete my backlog. :D

Got a bunch of copies of Uncharted 3 last week from Target's $20 two crap game trade in.

Traded in one copy of UC3 to BB for Silent Hill Collections Posted Image. Game isn't as good as the originals (a few issues) but I sold my PC copy of Silent Hill 2 on Amazon last year for $50 and sold my PC copy of Silent Hill 3 on Amazon this year for $35. I miss them.

Yesterday, traded in another copy of UC3 to BB along with Duke Nukem Forever. Picked up UFC Undisputed 3 Posted Image. After it was all said and done I paid around $10 out of pocket after trade-in. (UFC U3 is on sale for $39.99. So I pretty much got it for $19.99)
