Thanks! Oh yeah do you use scissors or a paper trimmer?


Since I've started on my casing kick, I really prefer the guillotine style paper cutter. I have a nice one at work that I can use to do all my cutting.

Yup, that's the easiest way to go, for sure! I finally picked one up about a month ago to help me get all my packaging done faster (since it's all done by hand). So helpful, but not an investment that's justifiable for everyone.

Do you own any CIB SNES or GENESIS games?

I have a LOT of CIB SNES and a few Genesis. I don't really hunt for CIB. What I have is mostly from when I was buying SNES games new. If I can get a great deal on one then I'll buy CIB, otherwise loose is preferred at this point.

Most people on here would most likely agree with you. Everyone seems to have such raging hard-ons for uniformity whereas I think collections look a lot better if there's some variety in the colors. But hey, we all gotta do what makes us happy.



No, what everyone else does is wrong. Only I'm right. Me.

Paper trimmers might work for people who don't want to make that investment. I have a cheap one (~$12) from WalMart and it's pretty decent for making straight cuts. Mine is something like this one:

I don't think I realized those Guillotine paper cutters were so expensive. My grandpa has quite a few from his years of working at a printing press company. Took them as they updated to newer stuff.

That cutter would prolly do the job just fine for the covers :)


I don't think I ever posted pics of them here. I think I have pics of some in bins...

Yup, found an old one in my photobucket acct.

There are a bunch more, but the bins are buried in the storage upstairs and are sort of a PITA to get to :/

Yeah, that's why I didn't suggest one :/ Sorta serious equipment made of a giant chunk of steel LOL!

Slowly bringing up my old school collection.

I have acquired a CIB Actraiser, FF: Mystic Quest, and Roger Rabbit :)

Too bad all ones I REALLY want are expensive as hell.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Yes they are... I was able to buy Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 3 complete on this site a year or so ago for like $180. And I just saw a complete CT go for over $215 on ebay recently. It's pretty crazy.

Yeah, I should probably count my stars that I bought some of the last year. I paid way more than you did but they're all going for a lot more now. There's still a dozen or so that I want that I put off because they weren't that expensive but even their prices are ridiculous now.

Some of those are on my list too, I need to compile what I have. I used to buy so many dupes because I didn't know what I had.

wtf.... Aero Fighters got crazy expensive.

Sim City 2000 for $50? I paid like $10 2 years ago, and that was market price. I can't fathom it having gone up that much.

Edit: Lol, even my Doom complele that I paid a few bucks for is now close to $50. What's with the massive hikes?

That's probably why he said "I guess they're not ALL quite 50+".;)

Welp... I've run out of room again. I'm cleaning things up a bit but will have some pics posted soon.

^^^ yes, this.

There are others I want as well, but that's pretty much the "need" list as of now.

I'm never gonna own a copy of Aero Fighters again (sold my old copy in college) unless I find one at a garage sale or something. No way I'm paying 400+ for a loose cart. 100* is already beyond my sensibilities.

Aero Fighters. Have to keep that in mind. Probably would have picked it up if I ever found it anyway, cause of the Vlogbrothers. Still, good to know.

It still blows my mind how E.V.O. quadrupled in price; it's more expensive than Earthbound now.

I have about 1/2 of those. I wish I could find Hagane though. And been looking for EVO for years.

And as a side note for those of you looking for something to keep organized, there's an iPhone app called MyStuff2 that is great. It's basically Access. I had an access database and imported it. If anyone gets it, I can export the database I have to you. Just reset all 'owned' values and your set to go.

Having a shelf that small seems kinda pointless... you can easily stack some games there instead.

Don't worry, it's probably only going to be there until I'm out of space again and then have to upgrade, so temporarily it'll just be that space.

Also might just stack extra stuff on top too. It holds 40 DVDs, so it's not terribly small, but like I said before, it'll probably get chucked as soon as I decide I'll need more space. ;D
