Oh jeez, I didn't realize that's the cover for The Five Doctors! Ha ha ha, I seriously thought Hartnell and Pertwee were Betty White and Bea Arthur, respectively.


Yeah, picture was kinda blurry, Ha. But yeah, my dad found it at a garage sale a year ago or so. The 5 Doctors is actually one of the few Classic Series episodes I've seen.

$10 craigslist. Doesn't have av cable, but ill get one on ebay. Always wanted one, this is my first.
Spoiler


$2 flea market. Complete, in like new condition.

$10 craigslist. New Super Mario Bros is bootleg I think, its "new" but looks like a shotty wrapping job, and printed artwork. Disgaea 2 is wrapped, but doesn't have a ps2 sticker on the case, so I don't think it is new even though marketed as new, but for $10 total, not too bad.
Spoiler


$15 craiglist. Love the Zelda Pickup. Gamecube controller is 3rd party.
Spoiler


$25 craigslist, already turned around for $40. was console only

Congratulations:applause:

But you should probably stop pulling glass out of virtual children, and spend some time with your own ;) Gotta start early on reboxing training:bouncy:

Thanks!

I haven't seen much of anyting besides hospital wallpaper for about week now and phone calls, texts, and occasional web surfing have been steadily killing my phone's battery about 2-3 times a day :/ I'm so effing beat. Need to eat some frosted mini wheats and go to bed.

Did pretty good on ebay with this one. Took an extreme chance on a listed as untested Sega Nomad. I knew from the past a lot of trouble with them comes from the ac port. Sure enough I got this one and if you moved the ac adapter enough it powered on. Biggest problem came from some dumb tard that managed to strip a security bit screw....... had to drill out around it so that hole is no good for a screw anymore. Best part of all the Nomad only cost me $29.50 shipped. Next up for it will probably be a new screen but that will come when I feel ambitious. Now to make or find a battery pack for this thing..... would love to bring it to college with me.

I also got this stuff in today. Haven't tested the Gamecube games yet their all from Gamestops 75% gamecube games and Gears of War Judgement is free thanks to the Lipton Brisk contest. Don't really want it though so up for trade it goes.

I've been buying Nomads left and right lately ;)

Love how easy it is to pretty much permanently fix the AC port. Dab o' solder, blob o' silicone/hot melt. Done!

Good find!

Do Nomads use Genesis power adapters or do they have their own specific one?

Really hope you named him after Oscar the Brazilian Soccer Stud who plays for my beloved Chelsea FC and not Oscar the Grouch of Sesame St fame.

Also this talk of Nomads makes me want to find mine. Pretty sure I still have it...somewhere.

Cag user deidara likes to weasel his way into free review codes for games that he then sells on here. He never reviews the games.

I love having a nomad. Had one in the past but it broke. Just gotta find a battery/make one. Would love to go portable with it.

The keystones I got are toolless and do not require one....I believe

They were cheaper than the non toolless ones for some reason *shrugs

Got the urge to pick up some PS1 games and Xbox 1 stuff and it all went horribly wrong (read: right.) I haven't been a proper "collector" in about 7 years b/c of school, but now i'm bored.


Posted Image


--Pink DSi - sears clearance for $45
--Vita A/C - same, for $3
--New Xbox-S - $10 at local store
--The Xbox-S goes with the modded Xbox with 120gb HDD I got off Craigslist for $55 (not pictured...too heavy to move without a forklift)
--Hori EX2 controller for the 360 on the right - excellent d-pad for those who like cross-style over saturn style
--Blade Runner by William Burroughs somehow made it in the pic, but yeah, i bought that too (fun fact: the movie Blade Runner got its name from the Burroughs book, which was a supposed screenplay for another book called Blade Runner, but the movie Blade Runner is based on Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep, by philip k dick. got all that?)


Posted Image


Here's where the fun starts!
--Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow (GH) -$15
--CV: Portrait of Ruin - $12
--Slim case games: Gekido, Crusader: No Remorse, and Battle Arena Toshinden 2 - $1 to $2 each
--Valkyrie Profile - mint/complete - $68
--Intelligent Qube - mint/complete - $40
--Silhouette Mirage - mint/complete - $18
--Tekken 3 - non-gh - m/c - $3
--DDR: Konamix - non-gh m/c - $1
--Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi - m/c $5
--Soul of the Samurai - $6
--Tenchu 1 + 2 - $10
--Fear Effect 1 - m/c - $5
--Kagero: Deception 2 - m/c - $5
--Killing Zone - $3
--Project Overkill - $3
--Tomorrow Never Dies - $2
--Rival Schools - m/c - $28

all bought from various places - ebay, amazon, people on other forums, local used media shops, half price books.

Not pictured but on the way--
--Ehrgeiz - m/c - $25
--Tobal 1 - m/c - $14
--Einhander - m/c - $40


special thanks to the Neogaf PS1 appreciation thread for spurring this binge. I bought Star Wars and Killing Zone b/c kusoge is great


Now to go play...guess which one...

Why so much Ethernet? Buy a repeater, place it near the last known good spot of the wifi signal, and it will increase the range by half in that direction.

Ethernet is so stone age, haha.

Don't feel bad, One Piece is frickin' amazing. But now you've reminded me that I'm two volumes behind.

Wouldn't surprise me at all if this series ends with 100+ volumes.

I only have the first 27 volumes and the one in this one in the pic because it was only $6 on amazon. Im a little sad because usually my pick ups are a lot more and yes one piece is epic.

this is kinda what I hate about anime. There are so many great shows, but they go on/have been going on so long, that I have no clue where to begin.

I mean, when will I ever catch up on 100+ volumes:whee:
