    @NayusDante, Deadman, Kitsune - They still had about 50 copies left on the shelf at that Target, and even more in the back according to the guy who worked in electronics, so I don't feel bad about it at all. And if those somehow get sold out they have even more at all the other Targets in town.

    @Portnoyd - I just use multiple holiday toy books. If they don't have enough I'll ask for more. The Target website forces you to print the WHOLE book, which is 15 pages and a lot of ink, and the PDF someone uploaded onto CAG doesn't always scan right, so they'll have to get a manager to manually enter the code who will get on your back about buying multiple copies. I know, last week the manager came back with loss prevention who said I was trying to use a fraudulent coupon, and I had to go show them to toy book which was a pain in the ass.

    @hellvin - Metro Gnome Music has a lot of cool stuff, but most of it is in line with ebay prices. I do find some good deals there on occasion though, you just have to dig through all the crap and then wait for the guy there to not be busy to open up the case so you can look at everything and the prices because half the prices aren't showing.

    @wingzrow - You've gotta be very careful buffing dreamcast games, they're very sensitive and most of the times still won't work. Interested in trading Garou and JoJo if they do work though?

    My dad got some old jazz records worth a bit. I dunno if I will listen to any of them before he sells them. That Duke Ellington 78 looks really good

    Oh yeah, after typing all that out I forgot to post my "finds" of the day. Finds is in quotation marks because I didn't really have to go anywhere for them.

    Various amazon black Friday deals, Tekken 6 with stick for $60, Sonic Chronicles for $5, Tales of Vesperia for $15, I am Legend, Spaceballs, and Young Frankenstein DVDs for $2 each.

    And I'm loving Amazon Prime, esp since its free. I don't have to find filler to get the cheap DVDs.

    Now I plan on hitting up the Gamestop B2G1 tomorrow, $5 Hollywood Video sale Thursday (My favorite sale!), and getting a few free copies of Lego Rock Band at Old Navy Friday (my mom can easily spend $100 there), and continue checking out the Amazon deals.

    Garou works, I throw all my games in my ebay store so ile let you know when it's up. Probobly be a few days until I get to it.

    I've never had problems buffering dreamcast games. This might be the machine I use since it's a factory grade 3000 machine. at least that's what they told me it was.

    Nice find. I have Photoshop 7 (a perk of buying a used computer ), I would still rather have CS3, but 7 is still pretty good software.
    I collect for: Odyssey2, Atari 2600, Atari 5200, ColecoVision, NES, SNES, N64, SMS, Genesis, Dreamcast, PSX, and TI-99/4A

    Picked up a Sega Nomad with rechargable battery pack and a generic Game Gear AC adapter for $12.50 at a thrift. Screen's in good shape; I don't have the exact official Nomad AC adapter (I have MX-1479 as opposed to MK-2103) so I don't want to risk plugging it into the battery pack (which is probably too far gone anyways.) Do all of the battery packs say "rechageable" on the back sticker?

    Eh, went to Goodwill in Round Rock, TX.

    I got the following PS2 games for $3.99:

    Orphen
    Destroy All Humans
    Harvest Moon: Back to Nature
    Silpheed (can't remember which one, but it's an early PS2 release)

    I also George Foreman's KO Boxing (NES) for $3.99 and a copy of Hook (NES) with a completely totaled backside for free. I pointed out to the cashier that I could use Hook, but it was seriously damaged and I asked her if there is any sort of discount for things with that sort of damage. She said I could just take it, so I'm not complaining. Half of the game's backside has been completely broken off, though the circuit board and the game's front is undamaged. The cashier probably figured that the game was useless. I wouldn't fix it if it was Captain Skyhawk, but I'll fix a R4. I will need to "borrow" the back part from a SMB/DH cart or something common with a totaled front label to fix it.

    I also got 14 (yes you heard me right, fourteen) floppy discs for the Sierra game "Alien Legacy". It is basically 2 seven floppy disc copies of the game. Dunno what it's worth. Came with the bottom half of it's box and the instructions. That whole thing was $3.99.

    Nothing else, really. I did get around to testing that 7.2" NGTV LCD screen that I bought a month or so ago. I'm so glad that it didn't need any major mods. I just cut the DIN cable coming from it and viola! It has composite AV in, mono audio in, 9v+ (I think. May need to test it with 6v.), and last but not least, ground. I was able to hook up AV since I had the spare RCA jack and raw cable sitting around. I watched a bit of silent RiffTrax on it with my PS2 . It's not as nice as the Voyager 7.2" LCD that I got a while back, though. It doesn't have a switch to go between 4:3 and 16:9 like the voyager one and the colors are a bit washed out. I also tried SMB 3 on it and it's quite easy on the eyes. Dunno what I'm going to do with this screen. Also, the screen has a fan in it (lol wut? Didn't think LCDs got that hot ).

    Found a SEALED MINT Roll 'n Rocker at an overpriced video game store.

    Get this?! They won't sell it to me because there are none on ebay to base the price on. REALLY? Killed me to leave it there. I offered $150 cash and they wouldn't budge. NO idea what they think it's worth.

    I thought I had a pretty good handle on most NES stuff, but this is a new one on me. So, um, what is it worth, anyway?

    Didn't the AVGN use one of these in his videos and couldn't even figure out how to use it?

    (I realize he was likely acting for the camera, but I seriously couldn't even figure out HOW to use it myself!)

    Why the hell would you offer $150 for that?

    That is not worth 150. I seriously doubt it's worth much of anything, even sealed.

    It's all in the collector's eyes. I've NEVER seen one in real life (till then) let alone one boxed... let alone one SEALED!

    I'd have payed more than that for it too... but they weren't going to budge.

    Yeah, agreed. I could see going for a 1st party accessory or something incredibly rare like the family fun fitness pad. I don't even think I've seen a rollnrocker before at all so I don't know how uncommon they are. I hate stores that rely on ebay for pricing and keep stuff there FOREVER which will never sell instead of just putting the god damn thing on ebay.

    Look up games + Arizona for some of the local AZ members thoughts on that place. Reminds me of it completely.

    This is the first thought that came to me as well. I understand it's niche and it's sealed but those things are horrible. I guess if you were a completion nut then it's okay to try and acquire it but I don't think I'd pay much at all for one, boxed/sealed or otherwise.

    Anywho, hit up GameStop and their B2G1F sale. I snagged...

    Mana Khemia: Student Alliance (PSP)
    A Witch's Tale (DS)
    No More Heroes (Wii)

    I would have splurged a little bit more but I was having a hard time finding a sixth title to get free. I spied New Int'l Track & Field on DS but it was missing it's book so I decided against it. One of these days I'll find my camera and start posting pics of my finds, the picture replies are more enjoyable.
