    Stopped at a pawn shop today and picked up Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 for Gamecube for $5.


    Oh, yeah... And this:



    $5 got me my very first import.

    All I can tell is that it is a Super Famicom game. Identification would be greatly appreciated.

    Super Famicom ChohMakaiMura, which I believe is Super Ghouls and Ghosts.

    What I've gotten so far this month:

    Early in the month:

    Xbox, $10 for the three ($5 each, buy two get one free).
    --
    Malice
    Gunvalkyrie (no manual)
    Arctic Thunder

    Then today I sold a relatives' broken PS2 slim back to the store, which he said I could do (and keep the money from... yeah, that was nice of them), so that paid for $12 of the $20 here, meaning that I only paid $8 for these three games... (as above it's buy two get one free there)

    Scud: The Industrial Assassin (Saturn) -- new and sealed, though I have since opened it because I'm not a sealed game collector (I'd never keep a game without opening it, and I doubt it'd sell for anything that amazing on Ebay anyway, it's not the most valuable game exactly...)
    Panzer Dragoon Orta (Xbox) -- listed at $13, but he only charged me $10. I've played this game halfway through before, and it's my favorite game on the system. Awesome, awesome game...
    Goblin Commander (Xbox)

    Then these two were separate, at a different place.

    Xbox
    --
    Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller ($4)
    Pulse Racer ($3)


    Several days later:

    Xbox
    --
    MechAssault - $5


    Week and a half to two weeks ago:

    Genesis
    --
    Burning Force (cart with clear plastic rental case with photocopied B&W box front and back pasted into the front) - $2.50

    Xbox
    --
    Dead or Alive Ultimate - $5
    Outrun 2 - $6


    2/18 (six days ago):

    Game Boy
    --
    Mega Man III - $4, cart only. Awesome find, I never thought I'd find this game for so cheap... so I started playing it of course, and yeah, it's amazing. The third, fourth, and fifth GB Mega Man games are exceptional games, some of the best MM games ever. III isn't quite as good as IV or V, I think, but still, it's fantastic. The game's $10-$20 on EBay, so it was a good find... (but again, not quite the equal in value to MMIV ($20-$40) or MMV ($30-$50)). Awesome, awesome find, I will be playing this (when I'm not watching the Olympics. ).

    Xbox
    --
    Dark Summit -- fun SSX clone with a basic story. I've played some of it so far, and it's definitely entertaining. Okay graphics for an early Xbox game, fun SSX-style gameplay, decent music... it's not great, but it's certainly good enough to be worth playing for fans of this kind of game.

    I also got a new PC gamepad, finally, a Saitek P990. My old P880 broke over two years ago, so it's been a long time... it's fantastic to finally have one again. ($20)


    Two or three days ago
    --
    Tecmo Classic Arcade - Xbox, $9 (complete)


    And finally, today.

    Mortal Kombat II - 32X - $5, cart only

    Not the most amazing game ever, sure, but I did want it, and I don't exactly see 32X games very often... had to pick it up. Pretty cool find!

    Also, while I was there, the guy let me have two disc-only Sega CD games for free... I go in there and talk to him sometimes and was there for a while, and he ended up just letting me have them. I wasn't about to refuse... (they were untested)

    Flink
    Mickey Mania

    Yeah, both of them are great platformers. Both are also on the Genesis, though Flink was evidently only on cart in Europe, so this is the only US version. I'd never played it before, but it's a really good game with great cartoony graphics and fun fantasy platformer gameplay. I'm sure I'll be talking more about this one in the future. The disc does have a little damage on it and in one of the early levels the music fails midway through the level, but if that's all that's wrong with the disc, I don't mind at all.

    Mickey Mania... that one's much better known, and popular, for a reason. Great game. I think I like Flink more, really, but this game's fantastic too, and the Sega CD has the best version. Disc had a bunch of gunk stuck to the top of it, but I got that off and it otherwise seems to be fine.


    Also, I got these in another store:
    Insecticide - Nintendo DS - card only, $10 -- I'd been interested in getting this one for quite some time... finally did. Seems fun enough.

    And four jewelcase/disc only PC games for $1 each:
    Diablo (disc only)
    Roller Coaster Tycoon: Loopy Landscapes, Includes Corkscrew Follies (disc only; I already have the base game, so why not get the expansions? )
    The Humans (disc only)
    Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic R Twin Pack (in original jewelcase; I mostly got this for Sonic R, which I don't have yet outside of emulation, as I already have 3D Blast on the Genesis. I do like 3D Blast though, so I don't mind getting another version of that either.

    So yeah, some pretty cool stuff there, and some good luck...

    Wow. 631 puts you close to completion! Nice work!

    Today I hit a couple of stores. At Movie Trading Company, a guy walked in to sell some stuff when I was looking through the games and his lot included some Genesis stuff, so I waited around til they were done. At the end, they only took about half his stuff, but most of his Gen stuff. Here's what I got:



    From MTC, for $15 I grabbed:
    Puggsy - Complete!
    Goofy's Hysterical History Tour -missing manual
    Pink Goes to Hollywood - missing manual
    Toki Going Ape Spit - loose

    As I walked out, the guy was still in the parking lot, so we started talking and I asked to see what they didn't buy. He showed me the other games so I offered him $10 for:
    Gex (ps1) longbox complete (with Wheel of Fortune game as well)
    Funny World/Balloon Boy - missing manual
    Flintstones - complete
    Ariel the Little mermaid - complete

    Trying to carry on the luck, I headed to Entertainmart and got:



    Robotech: Battlecry (xbox) complete $3
    Sega Soccer Slam (xbox) complete $5
    Ms. Pac-Man (NES) by Tengen - Unlicensed version! $5
    Lego Island 2 (GBC) loose - $3

    Good day for me!

    Looks like a nice cab there, congrats!

    Managed to pick up one game today, a nice loose copy of GP-1 Part II for the SNES. Don't recall seeing this game before and sure enough it's not too common a racer. I've been liking the motorbike type racing games for awhile now.

    I've noticed a lot of people have been picking up Genesis games lately without the manuals. I've been passing on quite a few because they aren't complete - are the manuals easy enough to come by, or are they just opportunistic pickups? I'd love to add a few more items to my collection, but I prefer CIB and I tend to pass on good deals for Genesis games (sadly) if something's missing.

    Like you, I typically will only buy if they are complete, but with a game that I rarely see or have NEVER seen before in the wild, I'll get the game without the manual hoping to find one later. Sometimes the game and box are tough enough to find alone and I find that I've been able to trade manuals to get some that I need.

    Also, it's so rare that I even find decent Genesis titles anymore around here that it's hard to pass them up at under $4 each with the box.

    I'll pick it up for $4 with the box, but typically my finds are R4-R5 at $8-$10 with cart + box. At that point, I'm not sure if the rarity warrants the price w/o the manual or inserts. I'm up to 170 now for Genesis, so I've still got plenty to go. I just don't feel like tracking down a ton of manuals or inserts later on...

    It is a original 60gb B/C model that has the demo firmware for retail stores.
