This is not the regular Risk, its the Metal Gear Solid Edition of Risk.
Its the Limited Edition one that sold out on USAopoly.

I was getting one for a friend in Canada and somehow got 2.


There's a regular version and a limited edition, which is selling for around $150 on eBay. Only difference is the box art. Risk is fun with the right people. Haven't played the MGS version yet, though.



My bad guys, totally missed the red LE letters on the bottom of the box in the epic.

Picked up a complete copy of Picross DS at Gamestop, was going to get Retro Game Master but they only had the cart. Got 2 MicroSDs from Radioshack. Tomorrow, I'm buying a few DVDs.

These are my pick up for a good chunk of the month. Didn't really get anything from Black Friday either.

Main haul.
Posted Image
Can anyone else that got MGS Risk and that has opened it check how many cities they got? I was short changed...Contacting USAopoly. Also got MGS HD mainly for the art book. And what an art book it is. Got LoZ:SS at midnight launch, haven't stopped playing it since.:D. Found Raystorm at a Buybacks for a few $'s.

Posted Image
Found all this at a thrift store for a few bucks. A bunch of Intellevision game pad inserts and manuals. (If anyone needs any let me know). Fling Smash guy was $0.50. The Wavebird was $1.50 but missing the receiver :cry:.

Posted Image
Found these NES games and this sealed Tandy game at the same thrift store.

Posted Image
Got these form Gamestops B2G1 sale. PSP and DS games are getting crazy cheap now. Also has anyone else thought the cover for MGS2 substance had a giant coffee stain on it? I was bummed when I saw this until I saw the manual had the same "stain" lol.

Posted Image
Got these from a trade on Craigslist. Traded a modded PS1 that I basically got for free. Morrowind has the map too! woo. Going to flip most everything else besides Otogi and KOTOR.

November has been fun.

I'm going to have a lot of stuff coming in, so I might as well get caught up...


Cheap little cloth poster I got for about $2:

A few random pickups from last week:

Sing 4 was free and I unfortunately can't get it to recognize microphones for some reason. The Zoom was $15 at Costco and well worth the money. It has some trouble with tracking hands if you're too far, but it's great for cramped rooms. Those PSP cases are absolute rubbish and will be going back. If anyone can recommend some good ones (at an affordable price), I would appreciate it.

Got a free original Xbox with two games from my brother-in-law. Someone gave it to his future step-daughter for her birthday and she didn't want it, so they gave it to us:

My first batch of Black Friday orders. Most of these movies will probably be given as presents, but I have to figure out what should go where:

It's a demo area in the mall where they have different games to play like Mario kart 7 and skyward sword. They try to show off gifts for the holidays and hand out swag. There was a giant costumed Pikachu there last weekend.

I think my mall last year had something to that effect.. I may look there again this year for some swag.

The best mall thing yet was the Pokemon tour. I got so much free stuff and had a great pokemon adventure.

Squarehard, I know I'm probably the last person in the world who should be asking this, given the amount of purchases I make, but what do you do that allows you to afford such a huge collection of games/anime?

I'm actually currently unemployed and going back to school, but I've worked for a long time and have saved up a bit of backup funds over the years, so that's pretty much what I'm using to make my purchases. It'll run dry soon, but for now, the $1100+ I've spent this month alone is still in the safe zone. :P

I get paid every two weeks which I hate, because I get my check and it's like "holy crap, this is a ton of money." Then I blow it all the first week and spend the second week with eight dollars in the bank.
