wiggy, how do the print outs of the covers look? I might end up needing to do it. but i am very picky, i know you do A LOT of this stuff so...


They look great if that's what you're into. How do you mean exactly? Like the quality? If so, it all depends on the source material (scans, images) and printer/ink/paper.

Paper choice is THE most important thing. A lot of folks on TCP have it in their head that it takes a $1K+ printer to make excellent prints. Not true. Spend a few bucks on good paper and almost any $100 Wal Fart printer can make beautiful printouts for ya.

It's really fun, but can be time and money consuming. Don't know how many games you're talking about casing, but it's easily $1.50-2.00 per game after cost of cases, paper, ink, Xacto blades, etc. Just so you know what you're getting into.

Ive been using The Cover Project forever now. Love that site. I really need to invest in some of those "universal cases for the retro games. I just can't bring myself to spend the money yet....but anytime I need to make a case for any of the "dvd case style games," the cover project is perfect.

What kind of paper do you use? I bought a cutter, and UGCs, still need to get some decent paper. Sorry off topic.

I recommend this paper to EVERYONE. You won't be sorry. Each box will net you 200 UGC covers or 300 DS case covers.

My game pick ups.
Spoiler


My blu-ray anime collection is fairly small, so these sales were cool.


Haruhi, Lucky Star, Gurren Lagann, and Code Geass were actually Dec pick ups. But I included them to show how nuts I went. I made a 2nd order this month and just decided to get every cheap CE they had. I hope to fill in the blanks down the road.

I swear I've seen you post some of those before. Are you just starting to go back to your shelves and randomly grab stuff to show off again? :P

I sometimes pick up duplicates of anime just as people do with games, so that could be it, but nothing from these pictures are duplicates, so I dunno what to tell ya. :3

If you don't find space for Two Worlds in your already filled space of anime I will gladly take it from you, =P that thing is huge!

LOL! I was completely joking, but it's good to see that you actually are that level of crazy collector ;)

I was mostly shocked that you didn't already have that SF disc.

It's actually not that hard, I do it all the time with movies. The biggest one is with NES games, I really need to catalog what I have because I'm always buying dupes.

I know you were, but a realistic answer applied in this case, so why not. ;D

Love those 3DS cases! Want one so bad.


Nothing exciting here, but I've been looking for Fearless Vampire Killers forever, so I'm excited :D

The 3 games were a buck a pop, so I couldn't pass em up.

Still don't have a 3DS (I'm still waiting for a bundle to my liking). So glad I was on CAG when KH 3D popped up in stock. Went and snagged Abyss today with a PUR coupon. Shockingly they still had a sealed one :shock:

After I made that thread about PS2, I decided to stop by all the pawn shops in town cuz I had not been to them in a while. I hit a jackpot at one of them. Weird combo of games here but I asked the guy and he said some kid brought these in so pretty much all from the same person. Anywho. They were supposed to be $2 each. Talked him down to give me a discount cuz he had been sitting on these for a while. Got 41 games for $65 :D Awesome thing is alot of these I have been wanting and need for the ole collection. I hate to think what I might have missed out on. Need to hit up the pawn shops around here a lot more often! I did procure a few doubles from this lot too. I have em up on my TL.

Good job on those PS2 games!

Now send those 3DS games to someone who can actually play them, like me ;)

Stopped back by the videogame section while I was at Wal-Mart earlier this evening and found these. I didn't hoard them all, I left 2 on the rack at the end cap. May keep 1 or just eBay all 4 of these. :lol:

I would have picked them all up, they have had enough shelf time if there were six sitting there.

Why do people think they are worth money? I'm sure they printed off a zillion copies and EVERYONE is buying 2 or more. They won't EVER be worth anything.
