    Default May 2008 Finds

    Ah, May Day! And the number of garage sales was simply insane. I probably went to between 50 and 100 today, when actually makes my haul pretty sad, as there was nothing all that great.



    All adds up to $49.25 except the black GBASP w/ SMA2, which was actually from yesterday and I paid 30 for. Best deal was probably the $10 GBASP w/ a couple games and various useful doodads. Gears for $5 and Juarez for $3 wasn't bad, and couldn't say no to a $10 Genesis w/ 10 games, even if they are nothing special.

    p.s. Two 'Finds' Thread starts in a row!

    Stopped at a used game store on the way home, and saw a Master System package I couldn't say no to:



    2 SMS controllers
    MegaDrive SMS adapter
    14 complete and mostly mint games, leaning heavily toward RPGs!

    At 44.99, it was more than I like to spend in the wild, but worth it I think.

    Then on the way home, I found a bare 360 power supply on the TV shelves at Goodwill. No console, controller, wall plug or price for that matter. I took it up to the counter and they charged me $1.99...sold!

    I tried it out with my 360's wall plug, and the LED glowed yellow, but I am wary of hooking it up to my console. Can a bad supply fry the console? and can a standard 3-hole computer wall plug work safely with the 2-prong receptacle on this unit? I hope to use it when I want to move the 360. Good start to May!

    Good deal, Atari 5200. Even better than my $50 Xbox deal off craigslist last summer, and you got some great games. Burnout Revenge is one of the best Xbox games IMO and worth it even if you hadn't gotten the others.

    I got my hands on a few things today and earlier this week.

    Gamestop
    Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon (PS2, complete) - $18.79
    Lethal Skies II (PS2, complete) - $5.49
    Dropship (PS2, complete) - free
    Smash Court Tennis 2 case insert and manual - free (The store didn't have the game so they were about to toss them out!)

    Toys R Us
    E-Vex Video Goggles (new, yeah I know they were technically bought in April, but they might get returned in May if I can't find out whether they actually work or not.) - $109.00
    Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus (PS2, new) - $11.99
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    Walked into Gamestop to Pre-Order R-Type Command for the figure, and noticed that they had a B2G1 sale. I picked up a few cheap games.

    Brittney's Dance Beat (Shut up, I like it) - PS2
    Agressive Inline - PS2
    Super Dodge Ball - GBA

    Total Damage - $10

    The day after I bought Atelier, the B2G1 Sale started, so I brought it back and bought...

    Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana - PS2
    Atelier Iris 2 - PS2
    Gitaroo Man - PS2
    Drakengard - PS2
    Shinobi - PS2
    Lunar Legend - GBA
    Oblivion Collector's Edition - 360
    Oblivion Expansion Pack - 360
    Project Sylpheed - 360

    Total damage, using the edge card was around $90

    Also had to return Prince of Persia: Two Thrones to Game Crazy because I already owned it, I needed to get Warrior Within. They didn't have any copys, so for $2 more I picked up Contact for the DS.

    Today turned out better than I thought, and I only went to one Goodwill and a couple meager garage sales. The good will had a loose SNES Spanky's Quest (R5) that I only picked up because it wasn't one of the other 8 games that were all sports (and lame ones, to boot). Also picked up a Power Joy Voyager at the GW, only because it was $1.99 and so clearly a Game Boy rip-off. I had no idea that it is actually a very cool little NES clone. There's a good write-up of it here.

    As I've mentioned in some other threads, I feel that Spanky's Quest is one of the most overlooked SNES games out there. Be sure to give it a try sometime.

    Went back to where I got the SNES games yesterday to see if I could pick up the rest for 1/2 off. Only 3 games left but I picked them all up for $1.50 each.

    Super Battletank
    Lion King
    Aladdin

    Also found Zelda Oracle of Ages for $2

    All games were cart only.

    Pokemon Silver (cart only) $2.25
    102 Dalmations (cart only GBC) $4.00

    Just a couple for the new GBC collection.

    Graaaaarrrrrghhhfp! Why can't everyone have generally good taste in games like this. Really, there isn't a truly terrible or worthless game in that whole lot! Well, maybe two or three, but usually you see more like 90% being crap. Great pickup!
