    Yes, the CDX and the JVC X'Eye use the same spec power adapter. What's odd is there seems to be a healthy surplus of CDX adapters out there for less than $10.00.

    Not many gaming related finds today. I did pick up the following PC games, though



    Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? (New Edition)
    Philip Josť Farmerís Riverworld (sealed)
    Half-Life Generation

    I picked up Philip Josť Farmerís Riverworld hoping for a neat adventure game but MobyGames told me otherwise, so I'll probably just keep it sealed for now.

    Craigs list find


    He wanted $25 but yall know how I roll. Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension, Super Castlevania 4 and super adaptor import converter all for $20.



    Goodwill games part of two $50 lots, each with a Gameboy and added accessories. I was there as the dude was putting them out. So after he told me the prices I said: "bitch, don't make me pimp slap you with my strong hand. Lower those prices." Fifthteen minutes later, after he stopped laughing at me he finally said he'd lower it to $2 a game. So I took the good stuff and left the other 7 games(3 of which were Tetris). Then when I was paying for them(he wasn't a cashier, just a price dude) I whipped out my 20% discount coupon and he looked at me and said "man, you are cheap". All I could do was laugh and agree So Super Mario Land 1+2, Yoshi, Spider-Man 2 and Wizards and Warriors X for $8.

    All for $65/shipped. Most of the games are completed with both overlays and a few decently hard to find titles (nothing really rare though).

    How did that work? There has to be some story behind it.

    Stopped at TRU to pick up Soul Bubbles for the DS, since I'd heard good things about it, and according to the TRU Toy Book, it had dropped to $19.99. I was pleasantly surprised when I got up to the counter and it rung up at $9.98 instead.

    Default Yardsales 10-25-08

    Raining pretty good out this morning but I went out just after 10 anyways to the two yardsales nearby today since yardsale season is practically done and I won't be seeing many more sales till next spring. First sale had some typical stuff Steering Wheel Controller & a GBC system pouch which I've seen the exact same one of before at yardsales, funny thing is it always seems as if I just see the pouch by itself when I see one and not wth a system and a few games in it lol They also had a Cabela's Hunting game for the 360 marked at way too much ($20), seemed like a case of people not really knowing how current gen (or even last gen) games will usually depreciate compared to what it originally retails for new. When I asked about games they mentioned selling off some older Nintendo stuff last year.



    GameBoy Brick System with Earphones, System Link Cable, Light Boy, Manual & carrying case

    Games (All with case & manual)

    Dr Mario
    Final Fantasy Adventure (With Map)
    Kirby's Dream Land
    Metroid II Return of Samus
    Super Mario Land
    Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
    Tetris

    Empty case & Adventure Island Manual (which I'm guessing would be in the empty case if it wasen't missing)

    $20


    Second sale was just out of town and I didn't see anything of interest but asked about old Nintendo games to which the lady mentioned having an old GameBoy with 7 games that she wasen't sure about bringing out and mentioned that she was going to sell on eBay and figured she'd get $25ish for at least, I politely said that it might not even be worth that (being honest with her) picturing most of these seven games being fairly common and not in demand. She brought it out and showed it to me and I offered $20 for it mentioning that it would save her the trouble of selling it online which she was a good sport about even if it was abit under what she was hoping to get and was nice about.

    Obviously this wasen't a killer yardsale price but when I saw the manuals (mostly with Final Fantasy Adventure & the map) and that every game was good it was worth paying up a bit more to me as long has it was still a good price. Afterwards I was thinking I might have been able to get her to begrudgingly take $15 but it didn't seem worth the risk/hassle to me when I was thinking it over quickly at the sale. I actually over heard (while I was looking at the GameBoy stuff) somebody offer $25 for a chair to one of the other ladies running this sale to which she politely declined and mentioned that she wanted to get $40 at least for it (I didn't take notice to how nice the chair was and what the asking price was on it). I sensed that if I tried opening with $5 or $10 for this that it would have been either flat out shot down (if offended) or countered with a price more in the range of what I paid.

    Yet another new flea market this weekend, I think my family has done every one in the area now.

    In other news... I found the right way to smack my $2 TV to get the color fixed!



    Metal Gear - $6.99
    Star Soldier - $3.00
    Little Nemo: The Dream Master - $3.00
    Dr. Chaos - $3.00
    Vortex - $5.00
    Drakkhen - $5.00

    All of that stuff from the same shop. Every flea market seems to have at least one specialized game shop, and this was it. Amazingly, there were several "FYE-like" shops with games, music, and movies, but they were priced a bit higher. This guy had a $5 Dreamcast rack (good stuff, too), $5 SNES case, and a huge $3 NES shelf, in addition to reasonably priced stuff behind counters. His business card says he's an FC Twin distributor, and I think he said he's getting the new ones when they come out.

    Also, not pictured, a CD cleaner/repairer for $5. It's chinese, but the cleaning disks come in nice plastic cases, includes a bottle of cleaning fluid and repair fluid. No A/C adaptor, but it has a plug and also runs on 4x AAAs.
