    Picked up a couple of things lately:

    Resident Evil (GC)
    Resident Evil 4 (GC)
    Geometry Wars: Galaxies (Wii)
    Snood 2: On Vacation (DS)

    I also have been purchasing large amounts of Gamecube games and will be getting a PS3 and some games with my tax refund.

    Yesterday I bought a Philips CD-i joypad (the Logitech one) for $2.92, a Famiclone type plug-and-play built like a steering wheel for $2.92, and a Game Wave DVD player with four remotes and one game for $19.51. Haven't tried it out yet.

    I ended up passing on a few things here and there. I passed on an Atari 2600 Heavy Sixer for $10, since I already have a Tele-Games version. I might have to go back at some point and pick that one up. Too bad the store had four 2600 consoles but only a handful of games to show for it. I also passed on a Genesis with a Sega Channel adapter, since I didn't know much about it.

    Not much as I have heard of some people picking it up for $10 new but I just got Mario Kart: Double Dash for 10.78 at a local pawn shop. They still haven't started to clearance the gamecube games at any of the local stores so for me that's a good deal. I'm going to hit up the flea market this weekend and see what I can find.

    Kicked off the month with the purchase of my 70th PlayStation game:

    Road Rash 3D (complete, GH) - $2.50

    (Coincidentally, I got it at the same store I bought my 70th SNES game at way back in 2004. If you're wondering, that was a 50 cent cart only copy of NCAA Basketball.)

    I'm back home at my parents house, and I found some interesting things.

    Yggdra Union factory sealed- 12.99 at gamestop
    F-zero GBA factory sealed- 4.99

    Both had used stickers on them, but since they were in box, I got them.

    Also, I splurged on Rock Band today for PS3.

    This month has started off great!



    Everybody loves freebies right? Well a buddy of mine recently got one hell of a deal when selling off his extra Wii. The deal was that the buyer would pay $250 for the system, but he only had $200. So my friend settled for the $200, and got a boxed official NES toploader with 16 games in place of the $50. Now, most of the games were common, but they were quality titles. He got the Mario trio, Tyson's Punch-Out, Blaster Master, Castlevania, Tetris, etc.

    The notable rare he did get was Bases Loaded 4. Now, this guy detests baseball, so I inquired on buying it off of him. He gave it to me instead, but on the condition that I take the other three NES games pictured below. I didn't want them (already had Mickey Mouscapade and Rad Racer, and that LJN baseball game is pure shit), but he said he was going to throw them out otherwise

    As for the new games, Tales of Phantasia and Elite Beat Agents were clearance marked to $15.00 at Kmart, but they rang up at $13.97 each (BONUS!). Final Fight One is brand new, and set me back $20. I love that game, and I picked it up to replace my cart only copy. You don't see sealed 2001 GBA releases too often anymore.

    My newest games:



    The best deal, by far, was the two RE games for $10, total.
