Grabbed Shovel Knight already for Wii U. Considered grabbing the 3DS version too but decided against it. Did grab the PS4 Jackbox though, great price.

Most are just insane.
I sold one of my PS1 games that was new and sealed with a HAIRLINE crack on the JEWEL CASE underneath the shrinkwrap, and the guy freaked the out and returned it.
It's a jewel case...
You do realize the sort of people who buy new games over 10 years old and pay the premium that comes with it are doing so because they want it mint and perfect right? Otherwise they'd just buy a used one. That one is completely understandable.

A person is what they are. It's nothing personal but the opinion stated IS what I called out. Point is.. girls play games that aren't always princesses. It's a very OLD way of thinking.
Marketing exists for a reason. Sure there are tons of little girls who will enjoy Star Wars or super heroes but you will absolutely get a group with princesses that you wouldn't get otherwise. There are still a LOT of little girls out there that love princesses and dolls and everything pink. Saying so isn't sexist, it's living in reality.

I'm jealous Slowdive, I had a terribly mediocre day today. I've certainly done worse before but man... for how hot it was this haul doesn't seem worth it, ha ha.
First score of the day was a copy of Interstellar for $00.50. It's the Blu Ray/DVD combo pack with the IMAX cell included so that was cool for so little.
A little while later I got a couple of DS games for $1.75. They were Deca Sports Extreme (3DS) and New Super Mario Bros (DS). Deca Sports is complete, Mario is just the cart. Meh but for the price and since I wasn't finding much I grabbed it.
Found a Gamecube shortly after with 5 games and a wavebird. All the games were junk except Mario Kart. She wanted 40 and wouldn't come off of it so I passed. Not an awful deal but just not enough profit to make it worth it for me at that price.
Right after that i found my best gaming deal of the day, a stack of Wii games. She wanted 2 each but did 6 for 10. Not all great but a few of them were good. Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart, Goldeneye, Monster Jam, Lego Batman 2 and Star Wars Force Unleashed 2.
I stopped in at Half Price books shortly after and got 1943 for 7.99 for NES. Not great but it seemed fair to me.
My last score of the day was a lady who had all media for $1.00. .Not much good but she had a ton of DS games, but they were all like Mahjong, Solitaire, Jewel Thief, Mystery Files, things like that. I grabbed 3 (Jewel Quest Mysteries, Magnetica and Solitaire Overload Plus) for $1.00 each and got Moonlighting Seasons 1 and 2 for $1.00 also.

Had a pretty strong morning at the flea market. Here's what I grabbed.
Escape From Monkey Island (PS2): $3.00
Myst III Exile (PS2): $2.00
Skull Monkeys (PS1), Microsurgeon (Intellivision) w/ overlay, Blinx 2 (Xbox): $20.00
Culdcept Saga (360): $10.00
Samba De Amigo maracas (DC): $20.00 (complete with the box but one side is torn up pretty bad. They are the Samba Fans 3rd party set)
Zoocube (GC): $2.00
Yakuza 3 (PS3): $9.00 (literally what I had left. He shot back at 10 and I pulled out what I had and I just flat out said I didn't have another dollar. He took it)

So I did really good today, but one almost score really hurt.
My first score of the day was at Savers. They had nothing great until I got to the case where they had 4 bags of Game Boy/Game Boy Color games. Each had 3 games and most were 3.99 though one was 4.99. I grabbed 3 of the 4 bags (including the 4.99 one) because there were some solid games included. 7 of the 9 also had cases on them which was cool. I got:
Rampage World Tour
The Lion King
A Bug's Life
Super Return of the Jedi
Game and Watch Gallery 2
Mickey's Racing Adventure
The next few stops were pretty meh but I hit a Gamestop I hadn't been to in awhile and grabbed a few cheap games from the bin.
Blue Dragon Plus
Tokyo Beat Down
Pretty meh still but here's where it gets good. Stopped into Half Price Books and found a copy of Fun 'n Games (SNES) for 5.99. Not a great game but considering what It goes for I wasn't leaving it. They must have priced it off of the Genesis version.
I then stopped into another Savers and found Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 The Masters (Wii) for $3.99. Another one that goes for a lot and I was glad to grab.
Finally stopped into a game shop and grabbed Tomb Raider Chronicles and Xtreme Sports for Dreamcast cheap. Two games closer to my set.
Here's the one that makes me sad. Stopped into a pawn shop that used to be great but the last year or two has really jacked their prices up to the point where I almost never buy anything. Shockingly they had disc only copies of Game and Wario and Pikmin 3 for Wii for $9.99 and $24.99. I was going to grab both but as they took them out, both had HUGE sections of the top label missing around the ring, likely from pulling rental stickers off of them. I don't know if the pawn shop or the person who sold them to them removed the labels but I informed them that this is almost always a death sentence to games and it is best to leave those on. I would have gladly paid those prices, pretty disappointed by that.

I got a solid little NES lot today of Contra, The Jungle Book, Pac Man, Tiger Heli and Tiny Toon Adventures for $10.00. Contra and Jungle Book are nice finds for sure. Not much else though, a few cheapo PS1/GBA games but nothing good.

Wow... lol, glad I avoided that one...
I got dragged into an old lady's house today too but it worked out for me. One of my only scores today. I went to 52 sales and only bought something at 3 of them. Two of my scores were solid but nothing amazing.
The sale I got dragged into was my 17th sale of the day and I hadn't bought anything. Lady said she had some old Atari but it was behind some stuff and asked me to help pull it out. Turns out it was an SNES. It's complete and in nice shape (could use a wipe down but the only yellowing is a little bit around the controller ports) and the controller is nice. Only games were Madden and Star Trek Deep Space Nine. She said she was sure she had more games somewhere but couldn't' find them... asked how much and she said 10, I countered at 7 which was quickly accepted.
About 5 sales later I hit a house and I see a copy of Pokemon Crystal just sitting out. It was after 10:30 and I figured it was overpriced but he said 2.00 which I quickly accepted. The battery sadly doesn't save but I should still be able to make a nice profit on it. I asked if he had anything else and he said he had some Sega games but didn't think anyone would want them. He pulled them out. There were about 15 but the rest were all sports. Grabbed Mortal Kombat, Castle of Illusion, Tale Spin and Ariel the Little Mermaid. He said 6.00 for them and the Pokemon which I accepted. Mortal Kombat is complete, the rest are cartridge/case only. Last but not least he said he thought he knew where a bunch of N64 games were but after 5 minutes came back saying he could only find 2 sports games and a controller. He offered me the controller for 1.00 more which I took. The stick is in great shape.
About 10 sales later I stumble on some Wii games, mostly crap but there was Sonic Colors. She wouldn't come off 5.00 for it but I didn't have it and it was a slow day so I took it. Annoyed that I overpaid but it isn't a terrible price and it is complete.
Actually did stumble on a sale with a TON of games at one point. I mean probably 200 or more for Genesis, PS2, PS1, Xbox, a couple Gamecube, SNES, NES, the works. Unfortunately except for the PS2 and Xbox they were almost all sports. He wanted 5.00 each per game which doesn't seem terrible but there was nothing worth more than about that, he was clearly a dealer and knew what he had. There were a few that were worth more like 6-10 (and I mean few, like probably 4-5 in the 200 games) but nothing amazing and on checking most of them were in awful shape. i tried to bundle up like 8 okay titles for 20 but he wasn't having it so I just passed.

So I had probably my best day in the last couple years. I went outside my normal area and that worked out rather well. (not terribly far, just about 15 minutes but in a direction I rarely go)
The first sale on my list advertised games but they had nothing but overpriced junk Wii games. They wanted 5-10 each for them and they were pure shovelware. They also had a completely busted Gamecube controller... there were a couple other sales in the neighborhood though and a few more supposed to open later. I asked an older guy (probably in his 70s) about games and he asked if I liked Sega. I said yes and he said he had a Sega system with a bunch of games but they were upstairs and he didn't have anyone to watch the sale to go find them. He asked if I would come back later and he'd set them aside because he had help coming in an hour or so. Usually I don't come back but there were 3 or 4 more sales supposedly opening in the next hour in the area and I knew my route was going to take me back only about 5 minutes from here so I said sure. More on that in a minute.
A few minutes down the row I found a stack of PS1 games, a few disc only and most complete. $10.00 for all 7.
Clock Tower is obviously the find here. The discs are in great shape.
A few sales further down the road I find a sale and as I walk up I see this view:
I imagine that originally slid into something but if so it's long gone. No matter though as when I looked inside I see:
Mario Kart and Mario World are always welcome for flips. I don't have many of the others either, glad to finally get Super Ghouls and Ghosts. Without even asking she says she's only asking $3.00 for the lot because she can't find the cords so doesn't know if it works... SOLD. The system is in rough shape, very yellowed with some pieces missing but will likely work. Even better, two nice controllers and a mouse. Plus for some reason an Eyetoy for PS2, ha ha.
There were a couple of pawn shops nearby I never get to because I don't get this way often. Very glad I stopped as I grabbed:
Etrian Odyssey 3 was $9.99 and the only solid game the first place had. Patapon 3 was $7.99 (the 3rd is kind of rare in physical form, Sony distributed a lot of cases with download vouchers), Gauntlet was $1.99 and SNL Season 4 was $3.99.
I then headed back towards the guy with the Genesis stuff and when I got the neighborhood there were a few other houses that had opened up. I hit one and asked about games and he said no at first. When I mentioned old Nintendo though he went inside and came back with a box with these in it:
Not a lot of treasures but Yoshi's Island will be a nice flip and Tournament Fighters is a cool one I needed. Said his kids looked through them real quick and grabbed out the ones they still play so there were probably some other good ones but oh well, still glad to get these. $1.00 each though wouldn't do $10.00 for the lot, so gave him $11.00.
My final score of the day was the guy with the Genesis games. I hit probably 10 more sales after that but didn't find anything worth grabbing. (a few eh items I might have grabbed if I was having a rough day, like a GBA SP in terrible shape for $10.00 that they wouldn't come down on, but nothing I felt like dealing with) He comes down with the Genesis and like 30 games. Lots of sports but a fair amount that aren't too. A few other commons I almost grabbed but they were very common cheap titles and he was not budging on price much. He wanted $100.00 for everything or 5 per game. I grabbed these 6 (not sure why I grabbed X-Men... I didn't have it yet though, ha ha so I figured why not). He offered to do $25.00 for the 6, I offered $20.00 and he agreed to $21.00 or $3.50 each. For the titles I'm cool with that.
Battletoads is missing the manual. Double Dragon is pretty rough, but still all at least somewhat pricey titles. I was cool with $21.00 for those though after paying $3.00 for that entire SNES lot it felt like a fortune, haha.

Ya, it definitely applies automatically. Doesn't go until the 4th game is put in so if only 3 are rung up it will still show all 3 at full price. Once the 4th is rung up the two cheapest go free. I got... a lot today. I hit 5 Gamestops and grabbed a total of 36 titles (8 at 4 and 4 at another). 35 are new to me, the other is one of a small amount of value I needed since one of the games on my list (Mega Man Maverick Hunter X :() got sold an hour before I got there. Still a few more I want but not close enough to be worth the drive. May call a few stores tomorrow to see about getting them shipped though.
Anyway, here's my haul (all but 2 UMD only... but beggers can't be choosers):
Blade Dancer Lineage of Light
Gitaroo Man Lives (the one I already had)
Blazing Souls: Accelate
Blazblue: Calamity Trigger
Crazy Taxi Fare Wars
Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception
Mimana Iyar Chronicle
Lunar Silver Star Harmony
Space Invaders Extreme
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Mega Man Powered Up
Crash Tag Team Racing
Steambot Chronicles Battle Tour
Pangya Fantasy Golf
Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex
Loco Roco 2
Warhammer Battle for Altuma
Sega Rally Revo
Tokobot (one of two with the case)
Ultimate Ghosts N Goblins
Dungeon Maker II: The Hidden War (the other with the case)
Me & My Katamari
DJ Max Fever
