$4

It can us some minor resurfacing, but overall the condition is decent. It is a single case only though. I thought these all cam in double cases but maybe I was wrong.

If I get a chance to go back there I'll check out that area. It's a 4 1/2 hour drive though so it won't be anytime soon.

Supposedly this was the edition that was in the kiosks in stores. As well, it's suppused to be moderately rare.

And a damn good price for that I must say.

My apologies, I'm Wrong.

Ah damn. I picked this up today at a pawn shop. "The Trial" inside of a normal Sonic 2 case. Probably somebody's sleazy Gamestop trade-in tactic. Grr.

At a thriftstore, picked up two wired DDR pads for the playstation, not bad for $3.98! They're shiny on the front and have a green edge, I'm guessing they're third-party since there are no logos anywhere on them.
I remember paying $10 bucks for a Madcatz one a few years ago at gamestop.

Wii!

It's nice because I really only paid $100 out of pocket for this. $50 up front and the rest from resells or trade ins of items I got for super cheap.

How the hell this ended up there is beyond me because they usually have nothing but old 16-bit sports games.

That is an awesome find. If you've never played it, keep it. I really enjoyed that game.

No decent sales this week, so I visited the pawn shops. I'm hoping to find Guitar Hero or Final Fantasy XII, but not yet. I did get a like new copy of Tiger Woods 07 for Xbox for $12.50.

I just got Star Ocean 2nd story (complete), FF Anthology (gh/complete), FF Tactics (GH/complete), and FF 9 (non gh/missing instructions) with the strategy guide for $30. The dude was 30 minutes late so he gave me Final Fantasy for the NES too. Then he told me he had one more in the car and he brought out FF Chronicles (non GH/complete) and sold it to me for $5.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Only hit 1 sale today, but didn't find anything.

I picked these up yesterday through Craigslist. They were left behind by a former tenant at an apartment building, and the super was selling them (along with other random books I wasn't interested in). Asking $30, took $20. The PS2 game and Go were unexpected surprises. Mostly action, but some other random stuff too. There are 89 books.

The only one I couldn't translate was the one with the orange flying guys on the cover (near the center of the picture). There were 5 books for that series, and I just couldn't figure out the title. If anyone knows what it is, please let me know.

What's cool too is almost all of the books still have their price tags (in Yen!). The books are really nice, a lot of them (including Gantz, Vagabond, MPD Psycho, etc) have dust jackets, which just give them a little some extra. I love the Vagabond covers - the writing is metallic and slightly raised.

Anyway, definitely a neat random find. Can't wait to start reading them - there are some interesting series in there...


OMG OMG OMG!!

Bump worthy! I didn't even see this earlier.

Hit up the junk shop today and the guyhad no new video game stuff. I was about to leave empty-handed when I spotted a few familiar looking dvd sets. What I found:

Boondocks, complete first season (near mint)
Aqua Teen Hunger Force, volume 3 (box is beat-up)
Aqua Teen Hunger Force, volume 4 (great condition)
Cowboy Bebop, Session 1

Cost? Ten FREAKING dollars! :D He wanted $13, but haggled him to $10.

I left happy.

Went to Salvation Army today, and noticed two PC games in the glass case, still in their original boxes with all of the CDs and manuals:
Call of Duty 2
Battlefield 2

There was no price tag on them, and when I asked the cashier about them, I got a pretty good response:
"$3.50 each"

Needless to say, I bought both games. One of the better finds at Salvation Army I've had in quite a while.

Went to the local thrift store, lets just say I probably won't be getting deals there, $10 for an Atari 2600 controller, $100 for a PSX, $30 for Star Wars Dark Forces, I almost did pick up a TV for $12 but decided I didn't need it.
