Half off media and I didnt buy 1 game at 3 different GWs! Thats how much of a joke theyve become around here. I did luck out for once and got a black wireless Xbox One controller with the Play and Charge Kit like NIB for $20. Thought that was odd considering they wanted $20 for the $25 headsets and $40 for the $50 headsets! I would love just 1 nice retro find again! And I passed on a Parrot Rolling Spider drone, they retail for $100 and GW wanted $40 but it was just the drone and the wheels in the opened box. No usb cable, booklets, or inside packaging. Plus I got a mini drone and I barely play with as is.

Finally a score! Sega Genesis model 2, cables (wrong ac adapter but I have the right one), 17 games (7 cart only, 3 complete, 7 game/case), and 6 controllers for $30. Mortal Kombat was just case and booklet. The best game obviously was the cart only copy of Splatterhouse 3! Then I found a red/black DS Lite with charger and ATV vs MX, Avatar, Tron Evolution, Lego Star Wars, IronMan, and TinkerBell- $5. 

 

The Retro trio Amiibo was from GS on my way home. I just took a pic of everything.

One GW had these controllers for $50 apiece, the next GW had them for $30 apiece. I went to a store where people have booths and cases, oddly theres a video game case despite the fact the store is a very 50+ womeny type place. Some good stuff in there but then I see nothing but Ebay prices........I ended up getting the pair of memory cards for $4.

There is nothing wrong with Windows 8.1!  Ive been using it on my gaming rig since November and wouldnt even think about going back to 7. All of my stuff runs better and Ive had no problems. The only time I ever see the tiles is when I click the Windows icon to do a quick search.......which it does wonderfully! Most of the time it looks just like normal Windows, I have everything I use pinned to the Task Bar.

Only went to 6 sales because I went with my parents and they dont drive around for more than an hour or 2 unless theyre finding stuff. Priced $10, he quickly took my $5 offer. Cleaned it up and used Amazon credit to get an av cable, cant believe I didnt have one in my stack of cables! They had 2 PS1s and some sports games to but I just dont want to even deal with PS1s, door stoppers!

Well that was an unexpectedly pleasant trip to GW. 

 

NES with Nintendo brand ac adapter- $25.....works just fine, thats about as cheap as ill find one at the local GWs these days! 

 

Killzone 3 complete, Xbox One headset adapter like new(works great)- $4 apiece

 

The Bouncer, Mobile Suit Gundam Journey To Jaburo, Star Wars The Clone Wars, GTASA Platinum Hits, and Crash Warped (that I posted about the other day)- $3 apiece, all complete. GTASA has the map never unfolded but the case has a chipped piece. The Bouncer looks like it mightve gotten wet, the artwork is wavy. Gonna put something on it to try and flatten it out.

Someone mustve dropped off their kids dvds, PS2, and Xbox games because there was quite a few today.
