    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.

    Toxic's Snow Bros. find reminded me that I found a Duck Hunt/Snow Bros. combo cart along with some other super rarities last night. Unfortunately that was in a dream, and I was pretty heartbroken when I realized it.

    I did pick up Little Big Planet for $50 sealed off CL. Been playing a little today and I think it is going to be very cool.

    Good to know I'm not the only person who dreams about rare video games. Ah, they're always so disappointing.

    I found Bust-A-Move 99 for the N64, which I wasn't even aware existed. Loose cart though.

    Other than that not too much has come my way recently, I keep looking but nothing yet. Oh, but I did manage to find a boxed copy of Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV for the SNES last month, not too shabby.

    Meh, I passed up a CD-i 220 loose with controller but no AV cables for $8 at Goodwill because I didn't have any cash on me at the time.

    Might go back and get it eventually.

    This was found at an FYE at the mall for $8. It's the complete series dvd of WildCats and I use to love reading this comic back in the early-mid 90's. The creator(Jim Lee) of this comic is now working on the DC Universe mmorpg for the PS3, so I guess it all comes around full circle now. Me and my beautiful segways, lol.

    Found a Fun N' Games with the box and game no manuel while walking at a park. It was just laying there next to the garbage bin so i took the poor thing, brought it home, cleaned it up. Tested it and it works fine I already have a copy so i guess ill just put this in my closet. By the way this is for the Sega not Super Nintendo =(

    Today I went to a local thrift store that I haven't been in for about 1 1/2 years. I looked around for gaming stuff and saw some Genesis games, but they were either crappy sports games, or stuff I already have. I had better luck when I went through their CD section.

    At the bottom of one stack of CDs I found a ex-rental copy Parappa the Rapper for $4. It's a bit scratched and the instructions are missing, but it seems to be working okay. I wish the game wasn't so unforgiving though!

    Oh, and I also picked up a copy of Kirby 64 that I had special ordered from a retro shop in town.

    Kicked off the month with five games:

    NES:
    Wild Gunman (cart only) - $3.50
    Ultima: Quest of the Avatar (w/ blue cartridge case) - $3.95

    SNES:
    Drakkhen (cart only) - $2.50

    Game Boy Color:
    Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 The Galaxy (cart only) - $2.50

    DS:
    Asphalt Urban GT 2 (complete) - $9.95

    I originally acquired Quest of the Avatar earlier this year, but it turned out to be a dead cart, so it's nice to finally have a working copy.

    Ya, it's cool to stumble across a bunch of Atari manuals and whatnot. Loose carts are easy to come by around here, but paperwork and boxes are another story.

    I mentioned those Karaoke Revolution games a little while ago... I remembered, "Wait, doesn't a guy at the flea market have another game?" So I went there and found this:


    Karaoke Revolution Country (some scratches) - $7
    Dragon Ball Z Shin Butouden 2 + Hyper Dimension
    Planescape Torment - $1
    And1 Streetball Promo Mixtapeeeeeer, CD - $1

    And I was leaving the flea market when I noticed some guy was selling electronics, so I approached him and he said he had these for five bucks:



    I did a google search, apparently the DVD playback is trash, but I only wanted it for the VCR part. This thing looks new, but it was in storage so who knows. My only other gripe - it has S-Video output, but only for DVDs. Dammit.

    Kitsune, are there ANY VCRs with S-Video output? I borrowed a Sony combo unit from my parents to transfer their home movies, and the S-Video just went blank in VHS mode. If there is one, I'd definitely like to find one or know what to look for.

    Not a darn thing at the flea today, but I did find this at goodwill the other day...








    It's called the "Radomizer"!!!!!!! Yay. What fun.

    You press the big yellow button and the light tells you what to do; you move spaces, direction, yadda yadda. I played the last one in the pic with my sister. Boring. 50 cents.
