Genesis SHMUPS are so grand!

So I'm nearing "completion" of my N64 collection. By completion I mean all the titles on my must have list. Kirby, bomberman, bomberman hero, pokemon stadium 2, starcraft, and iggy's recking balls came in recently, and a couple more are on their way from ol' eBay. What's left?

Bomberman 64 2
Gauntlet legends
Dr Mario
Ogre Battle
Turok 3

I'm pretty amped considering the only two pricey titles are bomberman and ogre battle. I'll still pick up games here and there for the system, but those are the only titles which remain that I'm actively hunting for. Will feel so good to scratch at least one system off my list :D

Some recent pickups:

3DS XL and a bunch of games. I've never owned a DS, so I've got a lot of catching up to do! (Wouldn't mind some recommendations)

Coraline, being from Five Below, was $5. Smallville was on sale for $20, but used an Upgrade & Save coupon to get it for $15 each.

Bought both of them on ebay. Lost War Chronicle is relatively inexpensive, but Senshitachi no Kiseki set me back quite a bit.

i figured coraline was $5 lol but had to ask anyway just in case there was a sale. Smallville I will be picking up tomorrow since you say they are on sale and as much as that show took a sharp decline the last few seasons i still loved it.

Got this on eBay for a steal only £10.50 with free delivery! Still £20 and over in stores. I don't actually have a 3D player I just wanted it for the seven hours of behind the scenes! Ridley Scott movies always have really good BTS I find.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

When it was released the was reports that it didn't even ship with a manual of a sort it just had those old DS Safety and Health booklets.

As I said - it's not that it was missing a manual, but rather it was never given a physical one. The manual is included on the game digitally and can be accessed via the 3DS menu.


On another note, my newest additions!

All three Zeta Gundam movies. It was either pay $45 for the bundle with a carboard box holding them together, or I pay $35 for the singles. Went with the singles. Getting really close to owning all the Bandai DVDs/Blu-rays I want.

Also bought Mega Man 4 on the 3DS' Virtual Console and Poker Night at the Inventory 2 on Steam.

By far my best video game find in a long time.

Was visiting family, and stopped by a thrift store on my way back.

Glad I stopped by because I picked this up for $5,

The box is a little creased on the top because they basically had a stack of xbox games on top of it in the display case, but I don't really care. ^___^

Pretty Guardian is obviously a Chinese bootleg, but the lot was only $20, so it was worth it.

From MovieStop, which I visited on a whim today:

Rideback didn't have the keychain, but it was cheap enough that I can still make back my money on eBay.

Normally, I take the price tags off before taking pictures, but you might not believe this deal if I had:

Best part: Volumes 4 and 5 were free. And all of them had their inserts.

Man, wish I could find Lucky Star for that price. Awesome pick-up:applause:

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

Here are some of my pick ups some from ebay and others from local stores ( Gamestop, Bestbuy, goodwill)
I didn't know they had a version of Catherine that came with an artbook sound cd, do you guys think I should keep it sealed?

I think that was for all first run copies, at least thats what I remember from watching a developer unboxing. I don't think it's super valuable, but probably worth checking before you open it just in case;)

These are this weeks pickups for me.

Posted Image

Picked up Tomb Raider from Warehouse Deals. Said there was a gash and missing case. But came sealed, with artbook with only the outer sleeve torn. Could really care less about the sleeve, so don't care too much.

Dishonored came in a trade the other day from Reddit.

And I hate Gamestop for not keeping DS cases, but oh well. Was up in Lycoming, and picked up Rune Factory, Rune Factory 2, Rune Factory 3, and SMT Strange Journey!

All for a pretty decent price :bouncy:

Dishonored came in a trade, and by far my most happy pickups.

Well, there goes me finding anything tomorrow >.>

I check this thread every day in order to be jealous of everyone. I'm not about to make anyone else jealous, but I figured I'd show what I've picked up throughout the month :D

This came in the mail today and thursday. Cross X Edge, Last Rebellion, and Resonance of Fate came from Best Buy. Took advantage of the B2G1 sale on used games. Only $14 after Certs.

Eternal Sonata and Hyperdimension were from AWD. They were $10-11 and $21 respectively. Hyperdimension is the PAL Version, but I don't mind; it's much cheaper than the NTSC release. I would've waited for another price drop but didn't want to risk it.

All came in complete cept for Resonance of Fate. I need to go get the manual and artwork for that. All in all, I thought it was a good pickup. :D

Found a Pokemon HeartGold while trolling for clearance deals at Sears... $19.97 clearance. Sells for $50 and up online. Box is in great condition. Think I will hold onto it though...

I have Eternal Sonata sitting in my backlog. Really want to play it, but am so intimidated by long RPGs these days. Played for over an hour and still hadn't had one achievement pop, tells me I'm in for a long haul. It was really fun for the amount I played though, and the art is fabulous:applause:

I played the Demo a long time ago and I really enjoyed it. Finally got it so I could play it someday. Hopefully soon. Haha. If you want a long game, there is Infinite Undiscovery. Have yet to beat it, and it's been 2ish years. But blame my general laziness. Hahah.
