    Awesome! My Play N Trade seems to use DP or AtariAge for their pricing, as anything rarer than a 4 is over $10. Ugh.

    The rarity guide only goes so far. In the end, it's good that it's cheap as it enables people like me who actually play and enjoy the game to not break the bank. I wonder what the actual print run was on it though.
    Whaddya mean invalid parameters?!

    9,000 gigs of ram and it still can't answer a simple question!

    The flea market was half-empty because a lot of vendors couldn't get their selling permits on time for some reason. Ugh. I managed to pick up the following items:

    CDs ($1 each):
    Hiroshima - Third Generation
    Cause & Effect - Another Minute
    Meat Beat Manifesto - Actual Sounds + Voices

    I've been looking for a complete copy of Another Minute for... wow, ten years! A friend of mine gave me a disc only copy back around 1998-2000, when we went to this same flea market to look for stuff. He bought a brand new copy and gave me his old one. I finally have a complete copy and I'm happy.

    Misc stuff:
    proMax Inside Apple's Final Cut Studio training suite (brand new) - $4

    Games:
    Silent Hill (PS1, GH, complete), Resident Evil 2 (PS1, GH, complete), Donkey Kong Classics (NES, with sleeve and manual), Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (NES, with sleeve) - $15 from one guy. Both DK and CVIII are in mint shape. I'm not sure if I'll sell Silent Hill and RE2 yet (I already beat Silent Hill and I have RE2 on Dreamcast.)

    Yeah, we had to write off the nearest PnT because anything classic was at least $5, if not at least $10. However, the next closest one has awesome prices. Definitely hit or miss.

    Paid $45 for all of the import Dreamcast stuff. Don't worry Steve, I left the ones you wanted there for you!
    Damn, really, $45? If I had known that shop was selling them so cheap, I'd have bought all of them myself! Makes me wish I had bought that Asian Dreamcast I found at Trader's Village years ago.

    I hope those UK Dreamcast games at that shop are equally inexpensive.

    Kitsune: I'd prefer to trade. I'm looking for a couple other PS1 games.
    I'd be interested in a jewel case copy as well, pseudonym. Are you mainly looking for the PS1 wants on your list, or would you deal with something else?

    I'm still amazed at what you guys find around here. I never see anything as cool as JP DC games. I have a JP DC and only about 3 games for it, as I never find any at all. Great find and lmk if you end up with doubles you want to trade out of!

    After I left, I got to wondering that myself. I almost went back to see if I could get the 2 you wanted as I'm afraid they may price them quite a bit higher when you went to get them. I don't think the guy did the math when he accepted my offer ($2.50 a game is really cheap), but he also didn't flinch when I told him $45 was the most I'd go. Maybe buying the extra stuff at the same time helped, but no telling.

    If you need a way to boot imports, let me know. I have a nice region switcher I can set you up with.

    I might, since I only have that Game Genie type of thing for the DC, and if I recall it only allowed you to play a few Japanese titles, like my Macross game (which sucked).

    You might not have ever ended up in this shop, it's a little hell hole in the middle of a crumbling strip mall. I pass by it all the time but it never occurred to me to stop in the place until the middle of last year. Stopped by a few months later to pick up Shadow of the Beast II for the Sega CD only to see that they'd marked it up from $9.99 to $18.99. That's why I was so shocked to see the prices of those import Dreamcast games.

    About a year ago we got our first mom & pop type game store EVER in my area. I've been to the store a grand total of 3 times over the last year and haven't bought a single thing and much of it has to do with prices on older stuff being much like your situation, $5 and up so I guess something like Bases Loaded would be $5.

    No prices on anything you have to ask and the guy who then looks it up on his computer and gives you a price. He tells me that he charges what "his program" says it's worth plus shipping (or what shipping would cost you if you were buying online so I'm guessing + $4) so it always ends up being more then I could find it for online shipped. Last time I was in I checked the price on a cart only copy of Sagaia (Jap) for the GameBoy and he was asking $10 out the door, I would have bought it if it was $5.

    In past trips I saw Earthbound - $85 (serious label damage) and a 2600 with a dozen games or close to for $150! I also saw Chuck Rock II cart only for the Genesis last visit and have been wanting to grab the Genesis or SNES Chuck Rock games if I saw them cheap but I would have been lucky if he was asking $5, probably would have been $7-8 and I would only want to pay $3 tops for it cart only.

    Get ready for this AMAZING FIND!!!! from Bookman's:



    Lol...ok, a bunch of boring genesis sports games but I have none of them.

    Bulls vs. Blazers - .25
    Bill Walsh College Football - 2
    Bill Walsh College Football '95 - 2
    Sports Talk Baseball - 2
    Rugby World Cup '95 - 3
    Fifa Soccer '96 - 3

    That leaves 77 left to go.

    Then I picked up this at Play N Trade:



    Nothing else too exciting, but I don't have these either. They got in a TON of atari carts.

    Donkey Kong
    Jr. Pac-Man
    M.A.D.
    Mouse Trap
    Raquetball
    Space Chase

    2 bucks each. They had a blue label Demon Attack there that I passed on and now I see that label variation is somewhat uncommon so I gotta go back and pick that up. They also had about 10 Supercharger cassettes there but wouldn't sell them until they figured out a price =*(. They did put me on a "wish list" for them and said they'd call back when they know, which I hope is soon because two of them were Rabbit Transit and Survival Island! Let's hope they don't go by DP pricing, lol.

    Boom Blox Bash Party - $10
    NCAA All Play 09 Wii - $10
    Grandia III - $6
    Rogue Galaxy - $6
    House of the Dead III - $6
    Morrowind GOTY - $5
    KOTOR II disc only - $5

    They have a little library cart with some cheap ass (but shitty) games for a dollar or less. Bulls vs. Blazers shouldn't be more than 25 cents lol. I got the box and manual so it works even better for me. I'd stay the hell away from Mesa Bookman's, unless you like paying up the ass for stuff.

    That's cool. It would probably be $3 at Tucson Bookman's.

    The Grant location is by far the highest priced location. Ive been finding great deals at the NW and east side stores.

    Sure. Give me a few days, I have to get it out of storage.

    I'm looking for PS1 stuff lately, I'd love some NES, SNES stuff too.
