Bought a Wii Sports a few days ago for $2. Got a pleasant surprise when I checked it.

I'll post my Thrift Store/Pawn Ship haul later, but I did see a N64 with two controllers (original) for $19.99.  No way of knowing if it worked and not sure if it was a good price so I passed.

*sigh* Just the controllers themselves are worth that much. More than that, actually.

A N64 with 2 controllers for 19.99 is already a good price. Lol

Picked up these two for $.50 each.

No games in the case. Probably stolen. But I figured it was worth it for the DS cases alone. They're in really nice condition. Wished the games were in there so I could flip them to recoup some of the cost.

I can always go back to get the N64, but I have no games for it likely wouldn't make any use of it.  I guess I could try and sell it.

 

Outside of random DVDs and CDs, I had a few gaming buys:

 

History Channel Civil War Game PS2  - $2

Super Mario Galaxy - $3

Fight NIght Round 4 PS3 - $5

Transformers Game PS3 - $5

Naruto Game PS3 - $5

 

My best finds were non-game related.  I got a Canon Elph Camera for $5.  Need to get a charger for it, but 16MP and 5x optical zoom for a tiny camera was a steal for me.  Might keep going back to that place and hope they clearance out an HD camcorder the same way.

 

$5 for the Insanity DVD set - probably my best find.  The set usually costs a ton.  Didn't come with the other crap it usually does but I don't need anything but the DVDs.

test the canon camera. Overtime, the lens part would be broken.

Nice find on that N64 stuff!

 

Only find I've had this week was a baggie of DS games (and one gameboy game) for 1.99.

 

  • Brain Drain (GB)
  • That's So Raven
  • Jam Session
  • Brain Age 2
  • Spyro Eternal Darkness

The bottom two are the big scores, the rest my kids can have...

might have been a mistake of putting it out but I grabbed it from the case as soon as I saw it. had to buy it right away as they would not hold it as I shopped the rest of the store. so had to purchase the ds games seperate. they said that's been company policy for more than a year now

Got an Assassin's Creed IV (Xbox 360) from a little hole in the wall used media store. It cost $7, which wasn't great, but that price is still better than what I paid for the digital copy on PS3.

Snagged Kingdom Hearts (PS2 - CIB) last week at my favorite local thrift for $1. Games are a rare find now and on the off occasion I find something worth having it's a nice surprise.

Nothing gaming today, but I did pick up a TomTom XXL 540M for $4.99, CIB.  I know it's pretty much obsolete, given smartphones pretty much double as GPS devices, but I'd prefer to have one to keep in my car just in case something happens to my cell service, or I end up in the middle of nowhere with no service.

 

I also found a Pinky and the Brain double bobble head today for 1.99, which I was even more excited about.  I love PatB.

 

Not my pic, but this is the one.  WB Store exclusive from 98:

Haven't found too much lately but I had a decent haul today.

 

Twisted Metal SEALED (PS3) - $3

Star Wars Battlefront 1 (Xbox) - $3

Nascar Dirt to Daytona (PS2) - $1

 

I would have passed on TM since I'm not a big racing/car game person but it was sealed (and apparently comes with TM Black) so I bought it for kicks.  Nascar is a flip since it goes for $20 online easily.

Picked these up from my local Goodwill for 1.99 each at the Toy Section. Was looking deep since it was mostly stuffed animals, broken toys, and such. The Cashier asked me if they were Collectibles and remembering that they sell online, I said no, they're toys. 

 



Pokemon $6

Zoids and Kirby $2 each
