    Can a mod make this a sticky?

    Kijiji ad: Atari 2600 6-switch woody light. Came with 2 coleco gemini controllers, 2 sets of paddles and 36 games, the standouts of which are:

    Ghostbusters (someone wrote "Ray Parker Jr." on the label )
    Gremlins
    Time Pilot
    Mr. Do
    Pitfall II

    $20 for all

    Dock sale again today. Not much there. I did get a Super Fun Happy Happy Joy Mega Power Player III thing in the box for $3 and a minty, boxed copy of X-Men Children of the Atom for PC for $0.50.

    Is Children of the Atom worth anything? There's a copy on eBay for $38, $42, and $45, but I've learned not to trust eBay's fixed price listings when it comes to value..

    I sold a copy in a jewel case with a manual and back inlay for $20 about a year and a half ago.

    The game is godawful. I'd buy a copy for myself if I could.

    I went away on a trip to chicago and came back with a fair number of goodies. Consider that I am from a small town so some of the items are not available new here anymore.

    Magna Carta PS2 - 19.99
    Grandia Xtreme - 12.99 (disc missing upon arriving home)
    Chaos Wars - free - (disc also missing)
    Ar Tonelico II - 29.99 (new)
    Stella Deus - 19.99
    RPG Maker 3 - 12.99 (a gift for somebody else)
    Guilty Gear Overture - 4.89 (new)
    Final Fantasy Chronicles - Echoes of Time - 4.89 (new)


    The Irresponsible Captain Taylor (all episodes) - $29.99
    Castlevania: Dracula X SNES - 60 (I paid a fair bit for this, but I've been looking for it forever so I'm happy, my boyfriend and I went halfers on it)
    Eternal Eyes PSX - $3.99
    Evolution 2 DC - $4.99


    I think that was it. My boyfriend will be calling the gamestop where they forgot to put the discs in and hopefully picking them up. I'm a little pissed because it'll be awhile before I get them. I just hope that he actually gets the disc because that's a fair bit of money lost.

    Good luck, you may need it. I've heard lots of horror stories about these kind of things with gamestop. There's an active thread about gamestop/EB at Atariage: (see post #4 in particular)

    My mom got me some Xbox games a couple Christmases ago without the discs inside. We just went to that store, showed them the credit card number and they looked it up and gave me my discs.

    Other than that I am sure they could look at the computer's readout of the store copies and compare it to the copies on hand.

    He JUST called back, said they have the discs there on hold for him and he's picking them up now. But yeah, I consider myself lucky. I think part of the reason why it was indisputable is the fact that they only have 1 copy of each so. They seemed really good about it, the problem for him is that it's a 30-40 minute drive there, so I feel really bad.

    Lesson learned. I learned this lesson at a flea market when I bought a boxed mario 3 with a super mario bros. duck hunt combo inside. ALWAYS check if everything is there when buying.

    Bought an Eyetoy, a Sony PS AV cable, an Xbox AV cable, and F355 Challenge: Passione Rossa (DC, complete) for a grand total of $5.41 at one of my Goodwills. Almost picked up a couple Xbox S controllers for 1.99 each, but I was thwarted by my own indecision. Picked them up, put them down since I wasn't sure I "needed" them, and they were gone when I made up my mind and went back.

    Also left behind a bunch of other stuff at 2 other GW's. One had a couple loose PS1s, one marked 19.99 and the other 29.99 along with a bunch of sports games. The other had two Gameboy Colors and what looked like an original DS, all loose, for 29.99 each. And all untestable. Problem being that this particular GW has a flat "no returns, ever" policy. F a lot of that.

    Glad to hear. Yes the gas money and time is going to be a bit of an expensive lesson and I'd mention what that lesson is but wingzrow already covered it.
    Good finds BTW.

    Picked up a Dell Axim X5 today for $15. It's missing the cradle but I'm happy to finally have a working PDA.

    I have it for Saturn, don't really think it's that bad of a game, just rather sluggish at times and the moves are a little tough to pull off.

    No, you don't understand - the DOS port is GOD AWFUL. The game is decent on the arcade and Saturn. The PS1 port appears to be broken, and the DOS port is worse, or so I've heard. I couldn't get the thing to run in DOSbox when I got my hands on a copy.

    As for me, I picked up some sort of F-1 racing game for the Sega CD for a buck. It's complete.

    I'd try out the darn thing but right now my CD drive is dead and I'm too lazy to open my computer and replace it.
