    Now after a few Emails he comes out with a price of 250.00

    this is what his mail said.

    Anthony,


    Let me tell you how much is fair and how I arrived at this number. I believe $250 would be a fair price. The way I found this was I went to amazon.com and found each game in the condition I own it in, disregarded any shipping costs and took an additional 15% off the game.


    For example if you follow this link
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...1010076&sr=8-2
    you will see The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past listed in very good condition at $17.94 (including shipping). Take off the shipping and you get $13.95 and take off an additional 15% and you get $10.46 which I rounded down to an even $10.00.


    Because I can tell you're eager to have these games I could probably meet with you before the weekend is here.


    Ray
    I added up everything the way he did and came up with 138.00. I would of paid the 150.00, but I'm not now.

    I sure wish we could play PAL Singstar games with a US game. I'd like to try that one out.

    Chrono Trigger is worth $60 alone... Earthbound around $80... $250 is a little high but not crazy.

    80 is on the high end for Earthbound. I see it sell for 55-59 all the time on Ebay. Chrono Trigger, 35.00 on Ebay all the time. These games are great, but they are not "worth" as much as people brew up in their heads, like this guy.

    A couple of recent deals that I've come across (besides the whole Best Buy thing):



    Soul Calibur III LE Guide w/Soundtrack CD and guide in mint shape - $5
    Unreal Tournament (Dreamcast) - $1.91
    Burnout (Xbox) $1
    NFS: Hot Pursuit 2 (Xbox) $1
    Midnight Club II (Xbox ) $1

    All the games are complete, with discs in great shape. Manuals are a little wrinkly, but for $1 I'm not complaining.

    So I went out in the heat and the 10,000% humidity and did some thrifting. I picked up Surf Rocket Racers and Sno Cross Championship Racing for the Dreamcast, $1.98 each, and a loose Dreamcast console with one controller and a blue VMU for $7.98. No power cord or RF adapter, but that's easy enough to get. I also bought some little portable game console, one of those cheap LCD screen types that look like a marginally updated Game and Watch type of thing, with two game 'screens', for $3.98. And then I went to the Movie Trading Company and bought Zero Tolerance, Marble Madness, and Shadow of the Beast for the Genesis, $3.99 each. Zaxxon's Motherbase 2000 for the 32X, $8.99. Strawberry Shortcake for the Atari 2600, $1.99. And Centipede for the Colecovision, $1.99. All loose, of course. Something else I found there, a 32X cartridge of Shadow Squadron, that the previous owner had sawed off the sides of the cart to try and stuff it into a regular Genesis console. People like that need to be lobotomized.


    Here's the heartbreaking thing: I came across a boxed Turbo Grafx-16 in a thrift today, marked $15.99. The box was faded and beaten up. It seemed a little too lightweight, so I opened it up to check it out. The console was there, and the controller, but nothing else. And when I looked at the controller it turns out the plug has been damaged and wouldn't be useable. So, I had to pass it up. It kills me to have to leave something Turbo related in the wild, but in this case, it was probably for the best. But if anyone in the Dallas/Fort Worth area is looking to pick up a bare Turbo Grafx-16 console and they can supply the AC adapter and controller, you'll find it on the top shelf in the electronics section of the Thrift Town location in Arlington, next to an N64 and some other junk. I searched the place, and they had no games, power supplies, or anything Turbo related other than this console. Maybe someone came in and bought everything except the unit itself.

    Only had about an hour and a half to hit sales today. Luckily, there was a neighborhood sale that had a ton of them all concentrated.

    First find was the PSOne w/ screen (and MGS d1 inside) for $5 (hard to see, but there are two ac adapters and an official sony car dc adapter). Another guy was just seconds ahead of me and grabbed a bag full of Xbox controllers and hookups for $5, leaving the xbox itself behind marked at $10. That was annoying as I would have bought all of it, but the xbox alone doesn't do me much good. Unfortunately the PSone screen is very dim, almost like there is a backlight that isn't working. Is this a common problem with a fix? PS1 games were all $2 each at a couple sales. Xbox games were 1 each.



    This PS2 lot was at my last stop that I really didn't have time for, but couldn't resist. Glad I stopped anyway. In addition to the games are a PS2 w/ hookups, 2 controllers, baggie of paperwork, and 2 memory cards. $60.


    someone sure liked their war games

    I paid $35 for mine back in ~2002, at a game store (Game Force, in Palm Harbor, no longer there). Chrono Trigger is meant to be played, not bought and sold as a collectible.

    Now, I'd go for the DS port, which is actually VERY good.

    Not really a find, but I got an APC power strip for $20 from CompUSA (TigerDirect store now). This thing looks like it's designed for retro gaming, with SIX spaces for wall-wart adaptors, plus five regular plugs. Now I have ALL my retro systems hooked up, with a master power switch.

    Looks like the Gamestop Xbox purge has begun (bumped another thread about it) so I picked up a blue Controller S, Lego Star Wars II complete and King of Fighters 2002/03 complete, grand total about 25 bucks after the 25% off and the Edge card. Probably hit a few other GS's over the weekend and see what I can dig up.

    First off, a big thanks to Dreadstar for bumping the Gamestop thread. Otherwise, I wouldn't have made it to my local Gamestop to pick up some stuff. I also hit two Goodwills, today. Here's what I came away with:



    15 Laser Discs for 99 cents each.

    The Naked Gun 2 1/2
    Star Trek Generations
    Back to the Future
    Back to the Future 2
    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    Twilight Zone The Movie
    The Wizard of Oz
    Beverly Hills Cop III
    White Men Can't Jump
    The Night of the Hunter
    My Favorite Year
    The Sound of Music
    Blade Runner Director's Cut
    The War of the Roses



    Rodney Dangerfield - No Respect LP with shrinkwrap
    Jesus Christ Superstar Soundtrack with booklet
    Star Wars The Clone Wars Bluray New - Just $1.99!
    Resident Evil 2 for PSX, complete and mint - $3.30
    Guided by Voices Live DVD, new and sealed - $1.99
    El Tiger for Playstation 2, new and sealed - $4.99
    NAKED LUNCH! CRITERION EDITION on DVD! Just $1.99! I've wanted this forever!
    Noir 7 disc set (some anime, obviously an HK bootleg, but very nicely put together and it looks fun)
    War of the Gems, Super Widget and DK Country for SNES - $2.99 each
    Phantasmagoria for PC, complete and NM - $4.99
    The Art of World of Warcraft hardcover book, mint, 99 cents
    Kronos Quartet and Asha Bhostle - You've Stolen my Heart CD, mint - $2.99



    Thanks to Dreadstar's timely bump on the Gamestop thread, I ran off to Gamestop and got the following Xbox titles for a total of about $54:

    Doom 3
    Wreckless The Yakuza Missions
    Top Spin Tennis (with Microsoft employee sticker on case)
    Sega GT Online (this should be fun, loved the Saturn version)
    Silent Hill 4 The Room
    Worms 3D
    Leisure Suit Larry Magna Cum Laude
    Robotech Battlecry
    Legends of Wrestling II (hate wrestling of today, but love being able to play classics from my childhood)
    Gunvalkyrie
    Dead to Rights
    Bionicle (I get the impression this one is rare...)

    Total spent today? About $100. Not bad.
