So, I know it's probably too soon to know for sure, but what are some of your thoughts on the Oblivion 5th Anniversary edition?
I've got one sitting around sealed, but now I'm getting REALLY excited for Skyrim, and I never even played Oblivion, I'm getting really tempted to open mine and play through it.

So, will it be worth hanging on to, or should I open it and enjoy it?
Also, similar thoughts on Fallout New Vegas CE?

Does anyone know if the gold cart Zelda OoT N64 games are worth more than the gray ones?

I'd keep it sealed. I never even saw a copy of the 360 version sitting on a shelf around here. I think they went unbelievably fast.

I think it's more popular than really uncommon.

If this is what you mean, it's nothing crazy value-wise as far as I know.

Bizarre Wal Mart find:

.hack//G.U. Vol. 3//Redemption

Found it in a massive cardboard dump bin. Scanned it and got the "see an associate for help" message.

I missed this franchise completely. If I understand correctly, this is the last in the series. If I did pick it up, I'd probably play it out of sheer curiosity. Plus, the shelf wear is pretty bad - I couldn't ask top dollar for it. Disc didn't seem loose though, which is a plus.

So. Rare? Or Not Rare? Worth playing? Or Not Worth Playing?

Alright so at a flea market stand (where I always see the same stuff) I saw Harvest Moon for the PS1, but didn't think any of it at the time. I looked it up and apparently it's rare. It's a bit scratched (looks likeit has LOADS of light scratches, and it looks pretty ugly), could this still be worth something?

Along with a scratched Castlevania SotN I saw at there too, I know this game is semi-rare as well, but it's disc only with the top of the case off and it's pretty scratched as well. (I didn't ask about the prices on either, usually it's only best to buy a game there when you're ready to buy, or else you're turn the sellers off to selling to you).

Should I get them?

Regarding the last part, I always found the .hack games to be super interesting in terms of concept, but the execution always fell short. Even in 2002 when the first one hit PS2. Me and a friend were enthralled for like a whole day (spent 6-7 hours messing with different word combos) but it never left like it was going anywhere. I think it would be harder to deal with nowadays. I realize that the GU series is a bit newer, but I know it isn't something I could deal with anymore.

TL;DR - If you can buy it cheap and sell it on eBay, it might be worth it.

Yeah, I love the idea of this franchise. I've been reading up on it a bit. Still, after clicking through a half dozen YouTube vids I'm thinking this would just join the other JRPGs in my backlog.

I'll see what they'll sell it to me for next time I'm there - but due to the considerable shelf wear - I can't really ask top dollar.

Thanks for the input, much appreciated!

Here's a stumper: Trip World, a Japanese game for the Game Boy. I've been trying to find information on it for months, but it seems it's only rare outside of Japan. Can anybody shed some light on it's "rarity"?

Ive got a copy of Wolf Fang SS for the japanese saturn in good shape, although i found it on yes asia there werent any copies on ebay. Curious if my fellow cag r's consider this game pretty rare and in their opinion of much value. It looks like the copy at yes asia sells for around $60 or so, im in the process of auctioning a goodly chunk of games but this one kinda is hard to figure price or rarity... checked gametz they only have one copy...

If it is the version with memory dongle you can sell it for a good price.

Anyone have an idea on the Genesis CDX console? It's a combo Genesis/Sega CD, about the size of a VHS rewinder. I've never seen one in person, but picked one up with AC adapter and two controllers for $12 at Goodwill this morning. According to Wikipedia, they only sold around 5K of them before they were pulled.

Thank you for the quick response. It is still sealed, dongle and all. Must have got it on clearance somewhere.

Yessir, cheapest used one on Amazon is currently $160. Nice pickup.

(I'll buy it from you for $12? :lol:)

Very nice pick-up. I've read that not only did it have a short production run, but it's also the best Sega CD system to have in terms of quality and playback.

Yet it works perfectly with it. I think it was Sega being worried that the system was physically less stable with the 32X on top or some b.s. excessive RF was generated by the two. Either way, the CDX and 32X were originally intended to be an officially supported configuration (as evidenced by the 32X user manual).

From what I understand they just never released the physical adapter for plugging it in (like is included for model 2 Genesis).

Umm, how rare would both Madden 95 and 96 sealed for Gameboy be? I only see one listing for each on Ebay, and both are outrageously priced. Are the games really that desirable, or is the guy just hoping some idiot will pay that much for them?
