Picked up at Goodwill for $2.50.

Rad Gravity not only included the manual (which is more among the lines of a comic book! :applause:) but it also had a folded up paper with save passwords stashed behind the manual. The Sailor Moon book is one of those "animanga" where they use stills from the anime and present them sort of like a manga. It's entirely Japanese (obviously) but it was a pretty neat find that I had to jump on.

First time I've ordered used from BB, and I'm really impressed! Everything is in great condition, so much so that I actually thought they'd sent me new versions by mistake. Very happy with what I got for $12:applause:

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

I loved Nuts and Bolts. Don't care what anyone says, it's fun building those stupid vehicles.

Picked up the Jaguar and the games pictured (plus Gradius III and Super R-Type but those aren't here yet) for $55 shipped from a fellow CAG. Now the Jaguar doesn't currently work which I had a feeling it may not when I bought it however, it appears to be related to someone plugging in the wrong adapter and frying this chip I pictured. Gonna replace that and see if I get it working and if I do then I will have to track down a controller and some more games. I also finally got around to getting my digital camera back out.

Posted Image

If you look at the top of the chip you can see where it burnt out due to the wrong power adapter.

Hopefully I can get it up and running so I can add a Jaguar to the collection.

Yeah, I tried the demo and thought it was a ton of fun:D There aren't a ton of platformers on 360, so I'm excited to play it:bouncy:

Newest RightStuf order. Was rather surprised that Cross Game was a 3-in-1 release here. Wasn't expecting it to be bulky. Also wasn't expecting Kannagi to just be two single DVD cases with a slip cover. :-s

not sure exactly how good of a deal it is...but I picked up discs 1-3 of panzer dragoon saga for 110 shipped. I figured now that the going rate for a complete copy is ~300 I could somehow get disc 4 and/or cover art for the remaining $190 lol
Up the Gunners!!!!!
I am Cheap, therefore I buy Cheap.

Is the game really THAT good? I can understand wanting it in your collection, but even still:-kthat's a lot of money for one game

Most of the time, people buy it for collecting purposes. Its been top of my hit list since I started collecting; I've just never wanted to spend the amount that it fetches. Recently, Ive wanted to play it as well. To me PDS is like the average really expensive game in a collection. (AKA almost anyone who has a serious collection has it.)

For people who want to buy it to play it, its usually not a big problem because if you decide to sell it afterward, youll most likely get back the same amount that you paid for it.

But youre right; it is a lot. I do believe 110 is the most ive ever spent on one game. (lol and definitely the most Ive spent on 3/4 of a game)

Don't feel bad, I spent 210 on a disc only copy earlier this year. It is that good though.

It's a REALLY good game, but no second hand game is worth that much (for my purposes and in my opinion). If I didn't already own a copy, then I'd just play it the other way...

Finally arrived, and this time (mostly) undamaged!

The back corner of the slipcover is bent up, but considering how much of a mess the case was on the first shipment, I am not complaining.

Also got this for $80:

You're missing your Yu Yu slip covers! Those are great sets, though. Easily the best remaster I've ever seen.

Well, I have Season 1's from when I picked that up individually (I mainly got the lot for Season 2, as I didn't wanna pay more than $20 for it) and I'll just swipe the other three next time I see them in FYE or MovieStop.

They let you do that? That's quite handy.

I usually go in with a bag from another store (since they are all in a mall). If they even notice, I am not sure if they care since I am not opening a package or taking any discs.
