    Default August 2008 Finds

    Here's my finds from the final two days of July. I figured I'd wait until now to post these. :P

    Wednesday: Fresh off the bus, I went to the flea market and found these things:


    Warcraft III Battle Chest is complete and it ran me $5.
    Star Wars Rebellion (PC), Warcraft II Expansion (DOS), Diablo II expansion, Dr. Demento's 20th Anniversary Disc Two (Disc 1 wasn't there) and Dead or Alive - Nude were $1 a pop and Jamiroquai: Emergency on Planet Earth was $3.

    Sadly, this one seller had a boxful of comics at five for a buck, and I told him I'd come back later. When I came back someone had already bought the box.

    Thursday:
    Half asleep, I wandered to the flea market and found most of these CDs for $6 total! The two CDs at the bottom rang me $3 for both.




    The CDs are:
    Weird Al Yankovic: Greatest Hits Volume 1
    Air: Pocket Symphony
    MSDN Library, Visual Studio 6 Edition
    Warcraft II
    Starcraft: Brood War
    Guy Spy in something or other
    Windows 98 SE Upgrade CD key (no CD, for trade)
    Windows ME Install CD key (no CD, for trade)
    Office 2000 Pro (Not OEM / no license CDs, but are legit, for trade)
    Afterlife (Sealed)
    Barbie Detective 1 and 2 (What?)

    The two CDs at the bottom of the second picture are magazine CDs. One includes a full version of Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe, and the other includes full versions of Descent, Star Control II, Red Baron, Zork 1-3, Battlecruiser 3000 AD and Betrayal at Krondor.

    ... And those Barbie games? I got them for MobyGames. My thirteen year old niece looked at the games I bought today and asked me what was wrong with me. I told her "Don't judge me." She looked at me funny for a while. :P

    Hey guys, got some gaming goods over the week:
    The most part comes from Yards and Flea since it is where the best prices and sometimes rare finds can be found(shame on you MERCADO LIVRE!)

    Bought this sms stuff from someone who doesnīt know even for what system works!SCORE!

    A pretty good Light Gun pack but the point of the haul is without question, Vigilante,heard about all over my childhood and just now, after a decade i own mine although very common here in Brazil.
    Paid 15R$ for the loot, just keep in mind that the averange price by sms cart goes around 5- 7,50 R$.
    Got this 2 PS2 games for 9,5R$, well, pretty shitty games though.


    Back on Fleas again!

    Being a huge fan of the arcade hit of this classic, i couldnīt hold myself and paid full price on this one, been hunting down for a long time.Didnīt play it yet but seems a very downgraded version.

    5R$

    Finally some SS finds!


    10R$ each, loose until i hit zonesega and printed the covers, look great!

    Neo-Geo controller for some Samurai 2 slice and kill

    Really a STEAL, 20R$, and even works completelly great, no clean needed!
    Snes stuff


    And finally, the best loot:

    Megaman 3 just kick ass!

    See ya!

    Hunting down to the last breath!

    Well I broke down and got a Wii. Actually I got two of them but one of them was more of a "find" then the other. I got:

    system
    2 remote/nunchuck combos
    2 steering wheels
    2 guns (one official, one Nyko pistol)
    Resident Evil 4
    Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles
    Mario Galaxy
    Mario Kart
    No More Heroes
    Smash Brothers Brawl
    CSI something or other
    TopSpin3
    NCAA football 09
    wii sports
    Link's Crossbow training

    Everything is complete and was bought new less than three months ago. $475 and it was mine. I don't know how long I'll keep it, but the half hour I've spent so far with it has been pretty fun.

    Friday garage sales have brought a nice triple score on some DVD sets:

    Items are:
    Gamecube Wavebird Controller & Receiver
    Gamecube Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
    CSI Season 5
    DS9 Season 5
    Futurama Vol. 3

    I got all of it for $45. I think that's pretty good

    Actually, I have three now. I just won another one on ebay about 5 minutes ago. See the way I collect is I buy low and sell high until I make enough to pay for the stuff I keep. So I just bought three Wii bundles at a low price and after I sell some of the stuff I should end up with a system and about six games for about $150. I'll just keep doing that until I even out. This method is a LOT easier with older systems, but it works fine with new stuff too, it just takes longer. That's how I got my 360 and DS collections, both of which now a pretty decent size.

    I just bought an INTV at a yard sale for $10 and an INTV II off ebay or I would have taken one or the other.

    My latest "find" (If you can call it that):

    - Gamecube (Platinum. Used w\ 1 official controller. All mint): $30
    - Gamecube Broadband Adapter (Used): Free (My sister let me have it)

    (I've been looking for another Gamecube to play PSO online with. Also, I finally have one in the color I wanted)

    I feel like laughing like Ted Kord used to right about now.

    BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

    Ahem.



    All of that ran me $28. ALL OF THAT. That's Microsoft Office 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Professional, Escape From Monkey Island, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, and Final Fantasy VII. I'm selling MS Office, FFVII and Win2K, not so sure about Monkey Island 4 yet. But that copy of Jedi Outcast? I'm keeping it and selling my boxless copy.

    The best part about this was that one of the guys at the flea market I uh, compete against? He arrived a few minutes after I paid for all this crap. And I'm pretty sure he wasn't happy when he saw what I had in my bag.

    BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

    He was probably like "no guey, pinche thundercat." Quoted from Munra se cae.

    I noticed you pick up a lot of MS stuff. How much you selling that copy of MS 2K Professional?

    Actually the guy's Asian American - he doesn't speak Spanish very well, as far as I can tell. I haven't really talked to him very much, but he doesn't seem like a bad guy, he's just... the competition.

    He mostly goes for electronic stuff anyway, and rarely goes for the software. He doesn't gamble on stuff as often as I do.

    As for the cost of that Win2K? No idea. I'll post it on eBay tomorrow evening.

    It depends, this software is pre-forced activation; and besides, even if it's used you can call M$ and ask them to activate it for free, all you have to do is prove that you own a legit copy by following the instructions shown on your screen. I've done this with my US English copy of XP Pro twice over the past four years - by calling Microsoft Mexico.

    As for how I find this stuff, I don't know. I just DO. I'm lucky like that.
