    Judging from previous posts I'm assuming they're only in Canada...

    Hey I stopped at Zellers again.

    I'm selling a few of the games. Yes, I know I'm trying to make a profit on them, that's kind of the point, I basically want to give people a decent deal on a new, sealed game right before Christmas but also get a few games for free so I can give them out as Christmas presents. If you don't like it, don't purchase, but don't BAWWWWWW about it

    http://www.digitpress.com/forum/show....php?p=1475493

    If those prices or shipping are high let me know, I'm usually a buyer not a seller. I based shipping on the Canada Post website.

    I hit up Zellers to check out the deal. Walk up to the clerk and asked about it but she just points at a bin gives me a stupid smile and says merry christmas. I said "the flyers says regular price 19.99-59.99 dollars. the bin is filled with 10 dollar games" she then says "they used to retail for 59.99" and I'm like "yeah...5 years ago, I wouldn't buy this game for 9.99 so why would I buy it for 15" she says nothing but looks at me like I just told her I like to fornicate with barn yard animals. After that I said "maybe you guys should be a little more clear with your ads" and walked out.

    I'm not gonna try for the price match at future shop and walmart. I just thought why should walmart/future shop have to pay for zellers being stupid.

    I hit up this other forum, its about deals you can find here in canada. Apparently some guy bought 82 games from zellers just for re sale. Yet I...who would only want 2 to play...can't get the deal...funny how that works.

    I did check out the pawn shop next door and bought Grandia 3 for the PS2 and Capcom vs. SNK 2 for the PS2 for 5 dollars each. So it wasn't all bad, I just would rather of got Gears 2 and Fallout. Its alright though.

    Just got Bounty Bob Strikes Back for Atari computer in the mail from DaveD.



    I've wanted to play this since I was a kid. Miner 2049er was my favorite game that I had back then.

    I also got this Pelican Case at Goodwill. Oh yeah it came with a dreamcast, 2 controllers, and crazy taxi. But I just got it cause I thought the case was cool. It is made to hold a few different types of systems, like n64 and I think original playstation. It was $18.98 with my club goodwill discount.

    ^ I have been wanting a hard case like that for the Dreamcast. Does it have a Sega logo on it or anything? Is it designed specifically for the Dreamcast?

    It just has the Pelican logo on the front. It is designed specifically to hold a dreamcast or n64(I think others but have not checked it out yet). It has cut-outs shaped for them to fit with out moving.

    Well, Zellers update.

    I tried stopping again tonight. Different employee was working.

    I went and told her I wanted some 2 for 30 games and started picking them out. She was a little hesitant and said that she didn't think these games were included. I told her that I had bought games from this case last night and that these games were included.

    She went and rang them up and they rang up at full price. She said she had to check with the manager, I told her that was fine.

    I hear her talking with the manager about 20 feet away, and he gets all excited saying "ABSOLUTELY NOT! ABSOLUTELY NOT! ABSOLUTELY NOT! DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THOSE GAMES COST?!? ABSOLUTELY NOT!" He came over and I explained the ad said $19.99 to $59.99 games and that I had bought them before. He said that I shouldn't have been allowed to and that the only eligible games were games from "the bin". Shit. the bin.

    I asked him to show me any games from that bin that were $59.99 and he said he couldn't because they "were sold out of them". Bullshit. By this time he had calmed down and said, "listen, I know kijiji is telling people to come to this store because of the deal, but we're a small Zellers and can't afford it".

    He's got a point. It's a crappy little store in a poor part of town that no one ever visits. So, while I could have pressed the issue, and probably quite successfully, I decided that I would just walk away and enjoy the few games that I did get.

    My wife compared me to Icarus. I flew too close to the sun. My wings of wax melted and I had to walk back to my car in a slushy snow storm empty handed.

    There is one guy on Craigslist that has been selling that hard case with a Dreamcast and some controllers for a few weeks now.

    Finally, a find for December. I picked up a Saturn package that had been advertised on our for sale forum at work. I was really surprised that it wasn't snapped up before I got it. Here is what I got:

    Hardware:
    Model 2 Saturn w/all cables
    1 regular controller
    1 analog controller
    2 orange light guns
    a generic ST-Key cart for playing imports

    Games (all complete):
    Virtua Cop 1 - US
    Virtua Cop 2 - US
    Galactic Attack - US
    NiGHTS - US
    Guardian Heroes - US
    Shining Force III - US
    Dynamite Deka - J
    Thunder Force V - J
    Radiant Silvergun - J

    The total for all this Saturn goodness - $150.

    Of course, some of the cases will need to be replaced, but all the games are complete with the exception of the spine card for the Japanese games. I will post a picture of the games later today.

    Weak, but at least u got CvS2 for $5, I love that game.

    See, I looked at coldb33r's sale, and he was not selling 80+ games. Sure, make yourself a little money and get some free games, nothing wrong with that, but when you do overkill and get 80+ games solely for resale, then it ruins the deals for all of us. Well, for you Canadian dudes it ruins it this time. This is why these misprint deals only ever happen once in awhile, because of the people that think it is awesome to buy 80+ games just to resell. I am hoping eBay gets flooded and 80+ games guy had to sell them for under what he paid.

    Wow, NICE deal Jimmy! RSG alone makes the package worth it. Congrats on that great find!

    Today, I picked up loose copies of Shadowrun for the Genesis, and River Raid II and Pete Rose Baseball for the Atari 2600. $4.95 for the Genny game, $1.95 each for the Atari games.

    I also picked up Barbie Horse Adventures for the Xbox. That one's been next to impossible to locate in the wild, but I found mine in a Trade N' Play for $17.99. Another rare one to tick off my checklist.

    In a Goodwill I found a copy of The Alphabet of Manliness by Maddox, a book that a guy at work recommended to me last month. Thankfully I only had to pay two bucks for it instead of it's original $15.95 price.

    Today in the mail there were two things:
    MVS:
    Puzzle Bobble with shockbox and cover insert
    Laserdisc:
    Sol Bianca (Japanese w/English subs both sides)
    It hasn't been released on DVD from what I'm aware so I went with the LD.

    At Target I picked up a nice little 20" bar stool for $15 and will grab the last one tomorrow for use around the cocktail cab.
