A fucking frustrating weekend.
Friday was compromised by dealing with problems with my son's braces and Saturday was shot because we had to go to a distant wedding of a distant family member. If the wedding had been nearby I could've gone out . . . based on ads . . . Sat was a big day for sales
Anyway this was a rare Wed. pickup. Saw a sign and decided to check it out (figured it was an old sign). There was this weirdo with a bunch of boxes. Almost didn't get out of the car but as I walked up, I saw an N64 . . .
Has a broken spot, missing TV hookup and door over memory but then again has expansion and jumper pack and 3 good controllers. Paid $3. Once again, why don't I find bundles with great games?
Friday I didn't get out early and I pushed into another town for a big subdivision where I hit 25 sales and bought only a single DVD . . . WTF. Way below my usual expectations.
I did pickup this along the way:
Wind Waker was part of a GC bundle ($28 for the sys, WW, and 2 crap titles). I convinced them to them to split it off only by offering $5. The FFT is missing the disc
. . . but it was free.
Also before my subdivision disaster, I found this:
As I walked up, I saw the old PS1 and a stack of games. I picked out Harvest Moon and Devil Dice and was going to pay when I saw the $5 tag on the box and the PSOne. Then I found out it was $5 for everything and gladly paid. Nice little bonus when I found a Crash Bandicoot in a demo disc sleeve.
It figures that the better sales were probably in my town and I passed on them. Later in the afternoon I found this sale that must've had a ton of cool stuff. One guy was just leaving with a couple of boxes of nifty older DD stuff . . .
. And I found out they had had a few hundred DVDs . . .
. I did buy some valuable Elf Quest books and these PC titles ($1 each):
This was at about 1 pm . . . what would I have found at 9 am???
