    Found a decent selection of PSP games today:

    Mana Khemia: Student Alliance for $19.99 (New) - It was the display copy at HMV, so it was gutted. Because of this, there is a hole and a couple of cracks in one corner of the case, which I didn't notice until I got home. However, the disk & manual still look like new, so it's not such a big deal to me.

    Hammerin' Hero for $39.99 (New) - I've been looking for something other than RPG's for my PSP, and this looked like it could be fun.

    Me & My Katamari for $15.96 (Used) - It looks like going to have to return this one. When I took the UMD out of the case, I noticed that the top of the UMD's plastic covering had split open, and it won't snap back together again. Does anybody know of a way to repair it? I really want to try this game, but I'm worried that it might damage my PSP.

    Lexar 8 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo for $39.99 (New) - I bought this so I could transfer movies onto my PSP. But for some reason, only some of my MP4 movies work on it. Is there a particular MP4 format that the files need to be in?

    I've seen "refurbished" PSP games at GS that had a clear casing around the disc part instead of the standard Sony white case. I'm sure there's a site out there that sells replacement UMD shells.

    As for Hammerin Hero...ouch, you might want to take that back. All of the GS around here have it for $15-20. I think it was set to $15 at one point and GS raised it back up to $20. Still, that's a pretty steep price on that. Of course if you find it at GS, you'll probably have to settle for their version of "new" but that's worth saving $20 IMO.


    Speaking of PSP and GS, I snapped up Every Extend Extra for $5. I almost picked up Folklore on PS3 at Wal-Mart for $20 but decided against it as I have a few other things I need to pay for first. They had 5 or 6 copies that I saw so I should be okay for a week or so hopefully.

I've had best luck with their store in Richmond, VA that's nearly 200 miles away, bought a dozen items from there in the past. They had a Neo-Geo AES come in but they hadn't priced it because they were waiting on the seller to bring in the games. That one gets some good movement due to being in the capital and around a large college.
    cyber, which P N T closed in Hampton Roads? Was it the one in Greenbrier? I haven't lived down there for over 2 years now. Also, I know the P N T in Richmond that you're talking about. I bought my Turbo-Grafx 16 there, but I haven't bought anything else there since I noticed that the copy of R-Type Delta I bought there a year ago had been heavily resurfaced.
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    @ Flashback2012

    I actually bought Hammerin' Hero at an EB Games location here in Canada. I've noticed that any price drops that happen at the US EB or GS stores don't seem to be reflected at the stores on my side of border (or on gamestop.ca for that matter). It's too late to return the game anyway because I've already opened and played it. Well, on the bright side, at least I managed to get a factory sealed copy.

    Also, I'll keep your suggestion regarding replacement UMD shells in mind. But first I'm going to try and return it the Best Buy that I got it from.

    That makes me miss a local Play N Trade that closed up recently (along with every other PNT in the Portland area, unfortunately). It was a pretty good place to find uncommon NES games - nothing as rare as Little Samson, but I scored a few titles that I hadn't seen in the wild in quite some time, including Kiwi Kraze, Bucky O' Hare, Krazy Kreatures, G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor, and Bartman meets Radioactive Man. Most of their NES games were $2.99 each.

    Picked up a couple gaming type things today at a book sale. I got the Prima Official Game Guide for The Lord of the Rings Online - Shadows of Angmar, volumes 1 & 2. They were $1 each and are both sealed in plastic. I also picked up 3 Magic Knight Rayearth VHS tapes for $1 each. The first is opened, but the other 2 are sealed. And, of course, as my luck would have it, the tapes are #s 1, 3, and 5 of the series. I made sure to see if there were any others, but these were all I saw. Maybe that is why the last 2 weren't opened.

    Anybody interested in the strategy guides, give me a yell.

    So you didn't get the outer carton box that also housed the soundtrack CD and I think a poster as well? That sucks...

    Also, Geddon jt's pictures are gone... From what I gathered in his following post he found Power Blade 2 and Little Samson. Nice, but I'm curious what condition they were in, complete?

    They were loose but they looked like they were in good condition.

    What!? I didn't know it came with that stuff! Darn it! And here I thought I got a decent deal.

    Yeah, sorry. I knew I should've just put Athletic World, but it slipped my mind to edit it and I went out to lunch

    Ah, Athletic World, the one NES game that can almost give you a heart attack just by looking at it!

    Sorry about the picture problems. The games were King's Knight, Athletic World, Power Blade 2 and Little Samson. All loose, but extremely clean. All were $2.99, but Little Samson was $4.99 (go figure).

    Someone tipped me off about a game clearance sale that is happing at my town's local liquidation store. So I went down this afternoon, and found they were selling last generation's games (GBA, GC, Xbox, etc.) at the sale price of 2 for $15.

    A lot of it was crap, but there were some gems to had. Here's what I picked up:

    GameCube:

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

    Mario Power Tennis

    Mario Superstar Baseball

    Super Mario Strikers

    GBA:

    The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night

    Naruto Ninja Council 2

    I also took a browse around the rest of the store, and found a cool Sonic Rush Adventure wallscroll for $4.

    After going to my brother's house to pick up $50 that he owed me, I decided to hit a few thrifts and a Movie Trading Company on the way home.

    The mini SNES was $6.95 (no controllers), the Tandy Football was $1.99, and everything else has price tags on them. This is my first SNES. I've never bothered getting one in the past, because I think Nintendo sucks and never liked their business tactics in the '80s. Picked up T-Mek for the 32X for $2.99, just because it's hard to find and I loved the arcade game. The Atari game, Star Ship, I picked up because I've never seen that label before. I thought Atari had discontinued Star Ship before they started calling the console the "Atari 2600". Mega Man X was $2.95, just so I'd have a game for the SNES to try it out. The Dreamcast Bleem! is for Metal Gear Solid, and it's got MGS disc 2 inside the case.


    Something I couldn't pass up, a game by Lakeside called Can It!, made in 1974. It's a kid's game where you have to use little plastic catapults to fling garbage into the can (fish skeletons, old bones, broken plates, and busted pots and pans). Made in the USA, and sturdy as hell. It looks like it was just manufactured, like it rolled off the assembly line yesterday. They don't make 'em like they used to.

    To the best of my knowledge, the PSP version was not packaged in the same manner as its PS2 counterparts. The only PSP games I'm aware of that had the over sized cardboard packaging were Persona and Prinny: CIRBTH?

    Just to be sure, I double checked NIS' website and couldn't find anything on a cardboard boxed release of the PSP version. If there was one, the NIS store site makes no mention of it that I could find. I also checked Amazon, nothing there either.

    I really don't think you missed out on anything with the PSP release SQ, when I bought my copy it had nothing with it and I got it brand new in the shrinkwrap.
