I may have used up all my luck for a while.

 

Also the scoring system in this game is really punishing, deducts a shit ton of points for using any ammo. On top of that you have to score high to unlock stuff. Otherwise really fun so far.

is this the savers in la mirada? I saw a copy of skygunner a week ago but it appears the disc got swiped / stolen.

I had that game briefly. Damned frustrating despite the cuteness of the characters. It's like hugging a teddy bear that turns out to be a cactus.

Nah, I'm in Massachusetts. Honestly if it was only a couple bucks probably still worth it for just the case lol.

 

Edit: some thrift stores do keep the discs for the games behind counters, it's rare but it's worth asking.

Yeah, especially the scoring system. I want to play it like star fox and unload on everyone but it penalizes me for using ammo. 

 

I'm having fun with the game, but it's so strange that it does that. I feel like a few simple changes and it'd be way better.

Motherbleeper! I'd kick the cutest, sweetest puppy you've ever seen if I could find Radiant Dawn in the wild! I just got a nice Wii haul last Saturday. No Radiant Dawn. No Radiant Dawn EVER!

I got lucky but now I can sleep in peace. I sold my only copy of Radiant Dawn (I got it for $10 at Sears nationwide clearance) years ago for $30 on craigslist.

Not much gaming stuff this week, they had a Wii with balance board/2 wiimotes/cables/ some other stuff for $50....naw. I picked up 2 shirts for work and 3 sealed packs of Pokemon Sun and Moon Unbroken Bonds cards for $8. One of the shirts was brand new and was once marked $60 apparently.
