I love how everybody is buying Wreck It Ralph haha. Is it that good?

It isn't quite Toy Story 3, but comes close and the video game fanservice is awesome and plentiful.

As for me, Gundam 0083 and my Sinnoh Pokédex toy came in.

Found NSMB2 at Goodwill for $10. Hakuoki was a pick up by my girlfriend.

Posted Image

I got all this stuff within a week. And through massive amounts of trading. I started the week off at the indoor flea market. I picked this up from a lady who cleans out houses. She had it bundled together with a bunch of Gamecube games and wanted $120 for everything. There was also another guy with a thick Russian accent trying to get her to go down on the price. I walked away since she wasn't budging. I came back later and just got her to sell me the Playstation games for $13 since the Russian guy kept telling her they are worthless CD-Roms. lol.

Traded everything but Mega Man Legends 2, in to a game store to lessen the blow from buying this $85 Tron Bonne. I only needed the demo to make my copy complete. :cry:. So now I have MML 2 and a Tron Bonne with just the back for sale.

Then A day later I found a guy selling these on Craigslist (his pictures). I got him to sell it all to me for $70.

Posted Image
Notable stuff are Mario 3, Mega Man 2, MM 3, Castlevania 1 and 3, Micromachines, Bubble Bobble, Final Zone, Shadow Warrior , Double dragon 3. Stuff I kept:

Posted Image
Also keeping MM 2 & 3, and the two Castlevania for trade/selling

Traded the rest of the stuff into a game resell store chain and got this for $8 of my own pocket:

Posted Image

Once again I turned a bunch of common stuff into quality stuff for my collection. I already had a loose copy of Zelda OoS so into the trade pile! In the end for $91 I got free games and this sweet pile of games to sell. Money in the bank.

Trade:

Picked up some good stuff recently.

Got 2 huge lots of stuff, most went on eBay because I didn't want it. Through reselling some stuff I didn't want I essentially got everything here for free :D

SSB was $5.00 at a thrift shop and all the rest of the games came in 1 lot for $70

The Pokemon VHS was $.99 at Goodwill

Is the box on the left part of the game or is that an anime?

It's probably not the anime since it's still airing.

Looks like an artbook of some sort maybe.

Got the Soul Silver from Target, Gonna keep it sealed since I found one loose at GoodWill already. Had to return something at GS and had plenty of credit to spare so I picked up DW:Gundam. Vanilla dead island for $5 and the CD cleaning system for $6 at Walmart for my thrift store games. Pretty happy with my purchases today :)

Far from it.

I say it's closer to an Ikki Tousen if anything. :P

Well this is kinda a pickup. I remembered having Shining Force CD and all my old Genesis and Sega CD stuff was at my parents. So I took the time to go through their messy basement. Of course the whole "my mom threw everything away" was in effect so no Sega stuff to be found. I did come across my D&D Amiga games and a CIB Secret of Mana SNES. I threw Secret of Mana on craigslist for $75 just to see what offers I may get and am researching the Amiga stuff to see if it has value. Funny thing is is that I don't even remember owning a SNES as I was a Sega Genesis guy. Also found an empty Final Fantasy 2 box.

So I got bored yesterday and started browsing craigslist when I ran into a post 11 PS3 games for $40. I immediately respond to the post and I actually came up for once!

I dont know why he sold them for cheap but all the disk were in mint condition and all had manuals.

My first pokemon boxed game, so pretty happy.

Best online trading website currently in my opinion.  Trust me I'm a CAG.

Picked these up tonight:
Posted Image
Never played a Final Fantasy before, but I figured it was something I should have in my collection. It was sold as very scratched, but seems great to me (just typical light ones from cleaning). Loaded up and played through the whole intro without a hitch, so so far so good. Manual is also mint:DI've always loved Namcomuseum and have wanted to pick up another copy after my PS2 one broke. Upscaled on 360 it looks almost as good as the XBLA versions, but cost me the price of one of those! Oh, and I picked up a new shelf on advice from a CAG in the "How do you store your games" thread. Hoping I can get it together tonight8-)

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Woo! :whee:

I'm so excited about finding this GameCube component cable! They're rare as hell and stupid expensive. Nintendo did not sell these at retail and you could only get them from Nintendo's Online Store. I did buy one back when my GameCube was new, but I lost the cable during a move. So I'm as stoked as can be!:whee:
