For me, it happened mostly because I'm back to the PC Master Race.

Pretty much. Last game I bought for actual playing was Code of Princess 3 months ago and Pokemon Black 2 release date before that.

I feel like this month's thread just makes it seem like that. There was/is apparently a Black Friday-esque anime sale posted in the DVD/Blu ray deals forum that people are taking part in.

SecondSpin had a 41% off sale on April Fool's Day. It wasn't anime only, but Squarehard and I bought mostly anime.

I think that would about win Pickup of the Month:applause:

Only if it was a really nice house. But given our budget, it won't be. Also, I don't want to move, so I'm bitter about the whole thing.


I don't know what this Yamcha soda is, but it sounds disappointing.

I'd rather drink Bulma-flavored anyway. Though it should be strawberry-flavored.

It would be nice if they had different flavors, but they're all orange. It's supposedly pretty decent, though.

I get you there, moving is a huge pain:whee:but just think of all the new shelves you'll have room for:bouncy:

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

Not really a pick up per-say but my Aunt recently got a job at Bethesda in the London office so she sent this my way:

Quite enjoying it so far!

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.

Traded in a whole load of junk (leftovers from some lots of stuff I was selling off) to the local game store and got $43 store credit. So I picked up these three SNES games for $18 out of pocket.

Contra 3, Earth Defense Force, Darius Twin

It was $10. Only reason I picked them was thanks to the trade it credit.

Been keeping an eye on ebay and just caught an Buy It Now for M.U.S.H.A for $70. Been looking for that for a long time and that was on the reasonable side of a price for me for cart only. I'll have pictures when it gets here.

These are all from the thrift store, but don't get excited - they're all empty cases! Why they had a box of empty PS1 cases is a mystery to me, but I picked the best ones; they were 5 for $1. All have manuals except Legend of Dragoon and Rayman.


Honestly, call me dumb but this is the stuff I LIKE finding. Cases, inserts, manuals etc. Those are the things I would love to find at thrift stores - especially at 20 cents each! lol I think theres something wrong with me, but I really enjoy finding that stuff.

I am Cheap, therefore I buy Cheap.

Im just thrilled I finally found it at a price point I was comfortable with. Seems to average 90 to 100 lately. Even 70 is a lot for me but I figured if I don't buy it now I probably won't be seeing too many more opportunities to do so.

Well yeah but I'd rather they had games in 'em is my point.

More pickups from the bizarro GS 50% off sale. I thought I had too much dignity for OneChanBara but nope, guess not!

Also in typical GS fashion, the cases are mostly trashed and covered in sticky goop. (insert joke here) At least they all have manuals.

Well if your gamestop is anything like mine, the employees have quite a lot of free time on their hands in between selling M games to minors and shoving subscriptions down your throat, so it almost wouldn't surprise me if they had a little "me time" in the storage room...not sure why I took the time to post this, now I've got some rather awful mental images:-#

More stuff. Like I don't have enough crap to watch:

Spoiler


Gravion and Pokemon came from GoHastings. Energon and Ninja Turtles S1P1 came from MovieStop.com. TMNT 3.5 came from eBay. Everything else is my final SecondSpin order.

BTW, I am very happy that the DBZ movie Blu-rays put the movies on one disc instead of splitting them up.
