    Default Weekend Finds 5/30-6/1

    SCOOOOOOOOOOOORE!!!

    Got my first find of the weekend today! Went down to the liquidatioon store cause they get new stock in on Fridays. Look around and see taht wonderful cardboard black of the SNES boxes, so I have to go see. All this stuff is salvage from stores across the country...usually it's all very nice too. So I flip thru....Lethal Weapon....Earthworm Jim 2...Super Streetfighter....Final Fantasy 3.....WAIT......FINAL FANTASY III???? And all these games are boxed complete (no shrink sadly)! So I open it up and lo and behold it's a complete mint FFIII with map and poster! GASP!!!! For....a whopping $15.00 Cdn!!! JOY!!!


    Then, this evening, my neighbor (who's moving to the apartment below) came over with a Nuby case full of GB games and stuff and wanted to know if it was worth anything. Sadly, everything he had was common, so he said that I could either have his stack of games or he'd throw it all away. Naturally, I took thie stuff and got:

    GB system (original, very nice)
    GB Link cable
    GB Nuby carry case
    GB Power adaptor (has short tho)
    Tetris x 2
    Dr. Mario
    Super Mario Land
    Kirby's Dream Land
    Dexterity
    TMNT Fall of the Foot Clan

    I was quite happy


    And now...more stuff on Sunday (there was lots o rain Saturday so everyone was selling today instead:

    NES Zapper + RF + SMB/Duck Hunt + 2600 paddle set $.50 total

    PSX/N64 Steering wheel/pedal set $1.00

    Yay!

    Hahaha, I still have the box, instructions, and map for my FF3, but no game! heh, I gotta find a cart sometime.

    Yesterday I scored Star Ocean Second Story new-sealed for $20. Went back to that EB that had Castlevania Chronicles still new for $20, but they had sold it by then, argh!

    Having to wait weeks to get paid really sucks when you find such awesome deals.

    I'm going to go on a swing of yard sales tomorrow, and hopefully the nearby flea will be up. Wish me luck on actually finding something this time around.

    I'm too lazy to find the midweek thread (or was there one this week?), so here's where I proclaim that I got Pocket Fighter (Playstation) for $20. Being a big fan of SPFIIT (wha?), I'd have picked this up long ago if I hadn't been drunk or stupid or something. SO CUUUUTE!!!!

    Today I found the motherload for my SMS collection. It was all the games that I was going to get off of ebay too so it saved me a bundle.
    All the games were $4.99 Canadian.
    California Games
    Double Dragon
    Enduro Racer
    Wonder Boy

    With this find I have now doubled my SMS collection!!!

    I am going out to some garage sales tomorrow morning so I will probably get more stuff but I just wanted to share this little bit since it is so exciting for me!

    I'm on a trip to Austin this weekend and found a few things so far:

    1) Super Pro Action Football for Intellivision (loose): 99 cents.
    2) Final Fantasy Tactics (non GH) Sealed: $2.99 at Goodwill. It even had a layer of clear box tape over it to protect the shrinkwrap, but had never been opened.
    3) Boxed Aquarius computer with 2 controls and Memory Expander $10.00 with a free Atari 800 boxed.

    I'm doing some more searching tomorrow.

    So far I've picked up the following

    1 Saturn multitap-for 10 player madness in bomberman, and because, well, I need one.

    3 Colecovision games-Venture, Pitstop, and Smurfs
    1 Odyssey 2 game-Bowling! Basketball!

    Not too shabby, all things considered that I wasn't really looking.
    Check out the Kleppings!
    Make Way For Madness!

    PS2:
    Red Faction II
    Hot Shots Golf 3 (I love this game!)
    Hitman 2
    ...$35 for all 3 complete from pawn shop

    Wall Street Kid (NES) and Street Racer (2600) both complete for $0.99 each at Goodwill. This is the first time in at least 3 years I've seen a complete 2600 game in the wild.

    Not really a find, but from ebay I got a Nintendo Power Fest 1990 program and a Nintendo Pocket Power magazine from The Wizard movie premiere.
