i wish more people used this thread and posted photos. The GAF thread is really fun to read but not many people use this one. Probably because it's segmented in the deals forum and not everybody visits it.
Garage Sale Finds

Thank god for the best buy/gamestop ps2 sports game flip. Wouldn't have been able to afford them all without it.

Posted Image
Only played the first resistance a little so I picked up the second one along with R3 from best buy with flip credit. Not opening it for now, might exchange for something else later.

Posted Image
Found these at a local shop - $2 for Document of MGS2 (for ebay)
$12 for FF13.

$6 for NHL Open Ice - It's sealed but has a crack in the case on the front, unfortunately. I bought this on a whim, thinking I'd never seen it before, turns out it's a fairly uncommon PS1 game. Gets around $25 complete and around $60 sealed.. nice find. Looks like NBA Jam but for Hockey.

Posted Image
N64 games. The copy of Goemon Great Adventure needed a lot of cleaning work but I got it looking good. Mostly craigslist purchases/lots.

Posted Image
Also got two nintendo selects with best buy credit, and this copy of Tomba 2 without manual for $5 in a craigslist lot.

Posted Image
Complete F-Zero X in a craigslist lot, along with 5 other games for $30. Selling this one to recoup the costs of the others I will keep.

Posted Image
Starfox 64 3D, and some custom covers from that thread on GAF. The designers didn't test them on paper so they're very dark, wish I would have looked before i had them printed, but it's not too bad. The FF13 one would look so much better with just a quick adjustment to the levels. What looks good on screen never looks the same on paper.. amateurs.

Funny you say that, because I've been checking my laptop periodically throughout the day thus far and have yet to notice anything I want in the Videogame Deals thread, so started clicking other areas looking for something to read and found this topic. I've checked out the Deal/Shopping Discussion sub-forum before, but sparingly as I have the deals sub-forum bookmarked:)

Never put up pictures before, so besides a camera, what else do you need to post them? Do I have to sign up for some kind of hosting service? Which one does everyone use? I could have posted a ton for last month, so I will give it a shot when I get back from mall. Hopefully I can start to contribute on a monthly basis as well.

I just use my phone camera.

Cool thanks for the quick response. My phone camera sucks and you wouldn't see anything if I used that, so have to use my old PowerShot, which isn't much better. Shucks, wish my gf was back from Jamaica and I could use her Epic. That phone takes some amazing pictures to be a camera phone.

Traded my iPod and ended up with this for $19.

Also preordered Skyrim. :drool:

Edit: If I end up with sticker shit on my Castlevania, I'm going to burn Gamestop to the ground.

Ok, finally took some pictures of my purchases for Aug/Sept thus far. Did a little research on image hosting and since Photobucket requires signing up, I went with Imgur, so hope that works and the pics show up. I'm sure I left out some stuff already taken to storage, not to mention I have a box of dvd's from Amazon Anime sale somewhere I need to find. I think I have 2 more layaways at K-mart to pick-up on Friday as well and will be hitting Best Buy tomorrow for Thor:)

Ha, earlier I clicked on most of these threads for 2011 in the OP and looking at your posts, you have nothing to be jelly over, trust me;)

That Vexille SE blu-ray has been eluding me for the longest time. I know i've had it in my cart a couple times now on Amazon and for some reason, keep booting it out for other stuff. Need to rectify that soon.

Also picked up FO:NV and Enslaved for PS3 from Blockbuster.


Nice finds on the Palladium books--I was fortunate enough to score a Rifts CE at a library sale but otherwise I never see these things in the wild.

Not very exciting, but I picked up Deus Ex at TRU for $35. Nice price for an amazing game.

A few pickups for me since the beginning of the month.

Posted Image

From some awesome CAGs on the trade forums.


Posted Image

$40 from Ebay, seems like it's well worth the money as the D-pad feels a lot tighter than even the silver one I bought previously.


Posted Image

Some cheap games from a lowball.


Posted Image

The two ends are from a lowball in absolute pristine condition, and Legend of Oasis from Ebay (thanks to a link off of the Auction forums here) mostly sealed for $26.50 :)


Posted Image

I also just bought some Perler beads and am currently making all the Mega Man 2 bosses and just finished up these two so far. I melted Bubble Man a bit too much, but still looks fine to me.

Finally found the box of dvd's from the Amazon anime sale I mentioned earlier. Glad I did too, as I forgot Amazon messed up and sent me some blu-ray called Galpagos instead of Ghost in the Shell 2.0, so I need to return that but posted it anyway. The games were from yesterday's trek to Best Buy and Gamestop with the exception of Devil Survivor Overclocked which came from Fry's. I had reward zone certs to use at Best Buy and figured I'd get it for $20, except they had none available and it was showing backordered in their system. Checked Amazon real quick while I was in-store and noticed they no longer had it either, only marketplace sellers with jacked up prices, so I hit the panic button and made a beeline to Fry's as I remembered seeing it there last month. I took a more detailed look when I got home and noticed Ebay has quite a few available, but around the same price I paid so I'm content with the purchase.

Thanks. Only found it on the fourth Best Buy I visited, but my son wanted it for his B-day, so glad to have finally found it new. Sad thing, he would have taken the Gamestop "new" copy we saw last month, but I just couldn't do that to him, lol.

Got these two promo posters from Comic-Con 2009 in the mail today from an Ebay seller. They are for Joss Whedon and Drew Goddards The Cabin in the Woods that's (supposedly) being released next year. The posters were obviously produced before the release of the movie was delayed multiple times because of the 2-5-10 on the bottom. Pretty neat IMO.

Yeah, that's the PO case, but if you do want it early, Amazon.fr has been selling the French Blu since August 24. Dunno if it's region free or not.
