    I bought a few things yesterday.

    Goodwill
    Samurai Shodown (SNES, loose) - $4.25

    Target
    Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Channel set w/ mat (PS2, new) - $27.98
    Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions (PSP, new) - $13.98

    I have, like, umpteen DDR games already and I've never owned an official Konami mat, so I couldn't pass up the game. I tried not to make eye contact with the sales girl at the register when she rang up Disney Channel DDR. Will I enjoy playing through the Kimpossible theme song? Try and stop me. B)
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    Picked up a PS2 for $5 with no cords at a garage sale.
    I figured it wouldn't work, an sure enough it didn't, a quick adjustment and cleaning of the laser and it works perfect now.

    Ya gotta love penny guides. I'm banned from circuit city because I got 80+ over the course of two trips though, and they think I'm a suspiscious customer. >_<

    Kitsune, when getting those MS programs to sell, do they need to be new or will you be able to sell the used ones? I'm not sure if you can use it more than once or not...

    I haven't been "on the hunt" for some time now as the local stores have been pretty dry and I've kinda been trying to scale back. Today the wife and I stopped at Goodwill to kill time while a nearby pizza joint was getting our pie baked. In the CD section I find a TON of boxed PC games (lots of Myst and Zork stuff) along with the Lucasarts game "The Dig". It's complete, near mint with the CD, Player's Guide, order form *for* the guide, reference guide and issue 11 of The Adventurer magazine.

    I played the demo for it a long time ago and always wanted to play it but didn't have the cash at the time to get it. Afterwards I could never find it in stores and I just forgot about it until today.

    Here's what I got this evening:

    Gamecube:
    SX Superstar (complete) - $2.99 at GameStop

    GBA:
    CT Special Forces (cart only) - $4.99 at GameStop

    DS:
    Kirby Squeak Squad (new) - $20.98 at Target

    World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King promo poster - free at GS

    The GS I was at had several of the WoW posters near their front door, and anyone who bought something was welcome to take one. As I have no interest in WoW, I'm giving it to a friend who'll appreciate it more than I would.

    I'm glad to get CT Special Forces off the want list, especially since I acquired the sequel in September. Also, it puts me at 90 GBA games.

    One of my personal favorites. What was on the cover of that issue of The Adventurer? I read all my copies until they fell apart...

    Took advantage of Hollywood Video's $3.99 deal going on -- although much of the stock has been pretty much picked over, no surprise there ...

    Star Ocean Till the End of Time
    Dragon Quest VIII Journey of the Cursed King

    Made sure these were the original cases and not the crappy Hollywood Video rental covers & cases.

    Also found Twisted Metal 2 for PSX at a thrift store for 25 cents !!

    Just got Ganbare Goemon: Mononoke Sugoroku looking brand new in box (haven't opened it yet to check, japanese n64 game were never actually sealed right?) at Goodwill for $3.99. DP doesn't list a rarity for it, but the only copy I can find for sale online is going for $45, so I feel pretty good about it!

    Looks like someone gave up their PC collection at the thrift. 3 were 2.80 and 1 was 3.80. Big bummer is D2 is missing the game. Anyone know anything about Stonekeep? I've never heard of it, but picked it up because it has a hardbound manual/book, and the box is cool w/ the hologram and the top has a 'peaked roof' shape.


    I also picked up an N64 w/ 2 good/great controllers, mem expansion, and ac (no a/v) for 10 at the same stop.

    From CL yesterday I got a SNES w/ 4 'meh' games and 4 controllers for $25. I didn't know it was missing the a/c adapter, so that kind of sucks.
