    These were branded as RPG controllers, I guess they figured you could use one hand for the game so you had a free hand to browse a strategy guide or pop some pills to keep you awake as you play through an entire RPG. Something to that effect.

    I haven't posted these as finds so much, but I have been picking up any decent quality Xbox games that I find at Gamestop. I now have 300 games for the system, but complete, good condition, quality games are becoming extremely hard to find around here, as most have the generic label Gamestop boxes, or are missing manuals. Also, about half of my shops are now Xbox-free, having shipped all of their inventory to higher volume stores, which kind of sucks, but does help when I go to one of those high volume stores and see LOTS of nice stuff.

    Lastly, since GS stopped taking in Xbox games a few months ago, the used prices have actually RISEN at places like Half Price Books, Play N Trade, and FX game exchange. Supply and demand? Who knows, so I'll still keep grabbin em while I can! Here are a few of the ones I've picked up in the past couple weeks:

    Darkwatch
    Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone
    Carmen Sandiego: Secret of the Stolen Drums
    187 Ride or Die
    RLH
    Serious Sam II
    Real World Golf (sealed - but still sold as Used)
    and a few others. Nothing rare, but still some nice games.

    The Tennis game is pretty good. I have a sister who would never play video games in a million years, but the Thanksgiving I bought the Xavix she and I played Tennis and Bowling until our arms ached.

    I need to get that Bass Fishing game. I've got the Golf game I bought boxed in a thrift, so all I need are the Baseball game and the Jackie Chan J-Mat (and the Bass Fishing game) to complete the games library for it. There's other stuff available for it too, but they aren't really games as such. I guess Xavix is still plugging away, trying to make a go of their console with things like a weight scale and stuff. Too bad the Wii has totally eclipsed it.

    I'm upset Xavix never did an RPG for it. It's a Japanese company, after all, and they love their role playing games.

    Yeah, I'll probably end up getting one very soon. I think I'll get the Tennis bundle and maybe the bass fishing game, as it seems to be the hardest to find other than the J-Mat, which is still commanding a high price tag. The games are so expensive because all of the processors and the CPU is in the cart itself, not the system.

    An RPG would have been awesome, but not exactly the audience they were aiming for. The entire games list is on Wikipedia:

    * Bowling
    * Tennis
    * Baseball
    * Golf
    * Power Boxing
    * J-Mat
    * Bass Fishing


    Too bad on the East Coast/Midwest the only place to get them is Tuesday Morning. Fry's has them, but they are still selling them for $75.

    Went to Play N Trade today and was told that their new sale is Buy 2 get one free on any Xbox, PS1, PS2, or Gamecube games. Picked up these:

    Hitman Contracts (xbox)
    Hitman II (xbox)
    Soldier of Fortune II (xbox)

    for just under $10, all complete and minty. Which puts me just over 300 games for the Xbox.

    Yesterday, I got the long-awaited call from GameStop... Stopped by after work today to pick it up.

    Before trimming:


    After trimming:


    Free, because I asked nicely when I bought the game Limited Edition a few weeks back.

    I only trimmed it because I wanted it to fit better. It looks more like a piece of art now, not a promotional poster with ESRB info and platform logos.

    This week, here's what I've found.

    -Master System (with cords and controller). I splurged for 19.99 @ Goodwill Computer Works. I don't see many of these, and I wanted to get one in case I come across anything I want to play.
    -King's Bounty .50 @ a garagesale
    -Dragon's Lore $1. I'll pick up an old PC game from time to time provided it's a big box and looks mostly complete. Oh and it can only be $1 or $2.

    Nice arcade cabs. I always liked that cabinet that KoF is in, and I'm pretty sure it's designed to be swapped.
