    Grabbed Fire Pro Wrestling(PS2) & Samba De Amigo (Wii) $5 ea. from the clearance bin at Toys-R-Us today. They also had some of the SNK Fighter Anthology games. What was the kind of rare one? Was it Fighting Anthology II?

    I'd assume Porksta that you got Bioshock LE so cheap beause you didn't get the big box that contained both the game and Big Daddy?
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Well the way Goozex works is the points are the same. So if you get a complete Bioshock LE or just the three discs it is going to be 750 points. I was first in line to get the complete package and the guy let me know he didn't have the big box. I just really wanted it and for a third of its normal price I didn't mind.

    Got the following today:
    Lucky Dime Caper Starring Donald Duck-$5 (Game Gear)
    Swordquest: Fireworld-$1
    RoboCop-$1
    Street Fighter II strategy guide-$1

    Also got a Game Gear Powerback for free, I'm not sure if it holds a charge, though.

    I like the board game Blokus, so I'm sure I'll play the PSP version. Spyborgs is by Capcom and is a 2-player only fighter/shooter? Sounds like something my kids would enjoy. Mtn. Bike is for a neighbor who recently asked "why isn't there a mountain biking game?" And Endwar is one I just finally wanted to pickup, but am expecting it to suck.
    Mountain Bike Adrenaline isn't bad as I picked it up last week, he should really tryout Downhill Domination....a mountain bike game that is lots of fun!.


    For me got a few games from newegg...all between $5.99 and $14.99

    Fracture (360)
    50 Cent: Blood on the Sand (360)
    F.E.A.R Files (360)
    F.E.A.R 2 (360)
    Legendary (360)
    G.I Joe: Rise of the Cobra (360)
    Ape Escape: On the Loose (PSP)
    N+ (PSP)

    GameStop (prices -10% for edge, all mint and complete):
    Shining Tears - $9.99
    Shadow Hearts NFRS - $24.99
    Wild Arms Alter Code F - $12.99

    EZ Pawn:
    Wii Music no manual - $10
    MGS Portable Ops - $4
    KillZone Liberation UMD only - $2

    GoodWill:
    GameBoy Player Start-Up Disc no manual - $4.99
    DDR Extreme - $3.99

    GoodWill #2:
    Crash Team Racing GH
    Bomberman Party Edition
    Lunar Silver Star Story Complete missing manual and Soundtrack
    DDR Extreme
    Box + manual GH for Spyro Enter the Dragonfly, no game
    Box for We * love * Katamari, no game
    NOFX - The War on Errorism
    NOFX - Punk In Drublic

    $7.98 total. It was so cheap because they couldn't find Katamari, Spyro, or the OST to Lunar, and took forever to find the discs that they did have, so the lady just rang up DDR and the Katamari box and said have the rest for free. There was also a PS2 for $9.99 but I passed on it because it had no warranty sticker and didn't turn on, if anyone wants it for parts I can pick it up for them.

    Darkslime, I've got an extra Lunar SSS Complete manual if you're looking for one (it's the hardcover one, right?). $6 shipped and it's yours. PM me if you want it.

    Is that a light sixer or a heavy sixer? Good price on the lot regardless of which type you got.

    The local thrifts didn't have jack squat today, but I went to a few much farther out of town that I knew to be fairly reliable, and found some stuff.

    Strikers 1945 for $1.99, and in their glass counters were the PAL format releases of Crash Team Racing and Cool Boarders. Here again is another instance of finding imports in the US, but instead of them being Japanese, they're British this time. Pretty cool. Also found in their cases (and almost overlooked because of the clutter), the Nokia N-Gage Atari Masterpieces Vol. 1, still factory sealed and shrinkwrapped. This was one of the games you could only get off Nokia's online storefront and wasn't available in stores, and this is the second I've come across in thrifts! The first one, sadly, was missing the game because some shoplifter thought it was a regular old memory card. Dumbass.

    At the next thrift I picked up the Tandy Baseball game, and the Challenge Master handheld. I also passed up on a couple sweet looking '70s era board games that I'm sure I never would have gotten around to playing. At the previous thrift I came across some electronic board game that was like Battleship, except with submarine warfare and having to plot out locations and enter them into it's little calculator brain. Maybe I should have picked that one up since it was nice and nerdy.

    I went to the Console Game Exchange in Frisco, TX and bought Soccer Kid for the 3DO. A while later I stopped at their Valley View Mall location and picked up Galahad for the Genesis (a port of the Amiga game Leander).

    As you had it covered up I must ask, does your Atari Game Center's lid have a giant crack on top? I'm just asking because mine does and I remember seeing one on Ebay that I was going to bid on having one.

    I do have to say that sticker looks nice and healthy though.
    I have a sig?

    I am actually very illiterate when it comes to Atari2600 and it's different models/variances. However, upon you asking I researched this and found out the differences. The one I got is a light sixer.

    Nope this one is all intact no real defects to speak of other than the logo sticker in the very center of the lid is peeling off. Most I've seen don't even have this sticker attatched anymore so I consider it a plus.
