I wish I could find an orange or blue N64 around here. Nice find.



Keep checking Ebay. I got one of the blue N64 with matching controller for about $16 shipped off ebay.

Ehh, garage sales are pretty much over here until April. I live in New York so I get the occasional estate sale in my area. I'm not by an upbeat urban area either.

Jesus, Kuros. Great finds! I see a couple things I would DEFINITELY buy off you(COD 4 and the DC come to mind).

Kudos, Kuros!

Keeping COD4 as I want to try it and I gotta tweak the DC. It's really picky about games.

Its very nice here in Arizona, about 50-80 degrees and sunny most of the time, but I've been too lazy to go yard saling, and the lack of good finds at yard sales the whole summer makes me feel like its not worth the time or waking up at 5 AM to fight mexicans and retirees for stuff that will make me a small profit.

My last finds of the year. Instead of going straight home from the gym the gf and I decided to check out a local dump that sells weird stuff:

Quiz Academy (PC), all brand new and sealed. I left 5 (FIVE) sealed copies of the very same game behind but I'm thinking of going back to pick them up in the new year just for the hell of it. Also, a DS cart holder.

But the find I'm most happy about, though not game related, was this:

A TURTLES MUG! Sweet mother of all that's good in this world, I love this mug to bits! And if Raphael isn't cool enough, the other side of the mug has these guys:

None other than Bebop and Rocksteady!

If someone else has already made one that I did not see, I apologize and do let me know so that I know to delete mine and use your's instead.

No offense, but Kuros did a fine job last year creating the yearly thread.
Leave a veteran in charge imo ....

There's not really much to the yard sale thread; the OP doesn't require updates or anything. dodgeme threw one up earlier, and it looks like that will be the official one going forward.

Why? What could he have done differently or better? No offense to Kuros, but it's only a thread.
