    Batman Arkham City, Deus Ex Augmented Edition, and Dark Souls for about $75 thanks to Amazon's B2G1 sale and some leftover credit I had.

    Not much today.



    Rock'n USA: All Out Rock (ironically featuring music by bands from The Netherlands [Golden Earring] and the UK [Deep Purple]) was a buck.
    Warcraft II for the PS1 was $2.

    Okay, I saw this at Target last night and wondered what this is. I guess I'll have to do some online research as I've heard nothing about it. Looks like a videogame collectors dream though - game, cards, figures, TONS to collect!

    Don't research them. They are more addictive than Pokemon!

    It's the big box retail side of the video game industry's great white hope. If you ask me, as with the typical "bunch of plastic stuff from Activision" lately, it's gimmick city.

    I think Amazon is the only place that you can find the Augmented version of Deus Ex. I had $15 off coupons for that game last month at Best Buy but I couldn't find it in any of the 4 Best Buy's I checked. One of the stores had a single PS3 version but I do most of my gaming on my 360. But atleast it looks like that one was a real limited edition as far as store availability.

    My finds can't really be shown. I won two contest on Gamepro.com, one for a free copy of Fruit Ninja for the 360 with the three dlc add ons released so far(four total dlc codes). The other was a beta code for Tribes. I'm not even sure why I entered that contest because I don't game on my pc. So of course they made me win it. It's available for free to the first person who PM's me for it.

    Went to my favorite video game store in Salem MA called Game Zone. Talked to the owner a bit as I always do when I stop in there.

    Found some really cool stuff but didn't feel like spending what he was asking at the moment and decided what the hell and bought this



    Brand New (it looks opened cause i tested it out at the hotel i was staying at) FC Twin.
    I bought it so I could test out all my NES and SNES games and not have to worry about wear and tear on my poor ole NES and since i don't exactly have a SNES yet (i know i know i am working on it).
    With the deal he said i could get any 2 NES or SNES games of a select few walls.. looked through quickly and they were all generic games most of the interesting titles i had already. And i found these 2 NES titles. Bigfoot (what can i say i am a sucker for monster trucks). And battlechess (i love battle chess!!!).

    When i tried it out.. Kinda ackward playing with the Snes style controller that the machine comes with when playing NES games but works just fine

    on a side note. I asked him if he had a Version 1 Genesis power cord for sale.. He said no (3rd shop to tell me no on that). But he had one for one of the Version 1's he had laying around and showed me what i am looking for. So I am still on the hunt for the elusive Version 1 Sega Genesis Power Cord

    Luis... another TG16?! And a Master System on top of that. Where did you find those? So jealous!

    Oh well, I have my own epic find this month. It's only partially video game related though. Here we go.

    Lite-On LVW-5115GHC+ DVD recorder

    Features:
    MP3/WMA playback
    Dolby Digital Recording
    MP4 video
    DivX
    VCR+
    Gold-plated front panel AV input
    Dual-layer DVD recording

    I did a little testing. There appears to be little to no input lag. This will be great for recording game videos. $12.99 at Goodwill.

    Yeah, I bought this for myself but then I read that it was basically Warcraft II Battle.net Edition with some tweaks, and since I already own a copy of that, I'll resell it instead. Blah.

    Test it again. I own a similar model to that (a bit older though) and tried to record some stuff, and it had some HORRENDOUS compression. It looked like an AVI from 1995. It worked fine when making VHS to DVD transfers, but games, especially stuff from PS2 onwards, will look bad. But it should work fine for simple 8-bit stuff.

    Anyway. My finds for today?


    N2O: Nitrous Oxide
    Crash Bandicoot
    $5 for both (down from $10), both are incredibly mint.

    I found these at a booth and the seller said she wanted $5 each. I paused for five seconds and said "I think I'm gonna pass, so I'll just put them ba-"
    "$5 for both."
    "Fffffffffffffffff damn you!"

    And so I bought them. Apparently some lady beat me to a sealed game a few minutes earlier. I've been looking for a copy of Crash 1 for a while, and N2O... well, I found a sealed copy of this bundled with a PC PS1 emulator, Virtual Game Station, but the seller wanted $15 for the pack, so I passed on it.

    Stopped into Salvation Army at lunch and found a few games:

    Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles (Wii)
    Gauntlet: Dark Legacy (PS2)
    Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows (PS2)
    Gran Turismo 3 (PS2)
    and a lot of sports games for $2.99 each!

    Great except all of the discs were GONE! STOLEN! Needless to say I passed on these and took the empty cases to the cashier to hold on to for me. Why do they leave their games out on the DVD shelf??? <wimper...>

    Anyway, what I actually DID buy from there were not games, but Manga:




    Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures #1
    Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures #2
    Rave Master #5
    Rave Master #8
    Rave Master #12
    Rave Master #25
    Naruto #9
    Samurai Deeper #5
    Samurai Deeper #7
    Samurai Deeper #12

    All for .99 cents each in GREAT shape, plus today was 10% off day, so 10 books for under $10. Nice...

    Can't take pictures right now (will try to get some) but picked this up at the flea market today on my way home:

    Atari 2600 Jr.
    42 games
    Four controllers
    Works perfectly
    Many manuals and those mini-catalogs

    $30

    Needed a couple of the games and will replace the 2600 I use for testing games with this one since it's smaller.

    Also picked up a few NES and N64 games for $1 each. Was tempted to offer the lady something for the entire lot (~75-100 games) but it would take me forever to get rid of them (somehow she had 20 copies of Star Wars Episode 1 Racer and 12 copies of Turok 2 not to mention the 10 copies of Rad Racer). Topped it off with a N64 for $5 and four boxed SNES sports games at 50 cents each. Figured why not on those.

    It's also worth mentioning that one of the thrift stores I venture while visiting family managed to piss me off. I go in there and see 20-25 Sega Saturn games, including Guardian Heroes. Needless to say, I'm very excited and then I ask to see them. Guardian Heroes ... $45, Panzer Dragoon ... $15, etc. eBay prices for no guarantee. I really needed Guardian Heroes for my collection too but I'm not giving retail price at a thrift store. Defeats the purpose of being a thrift store imo.

    Nitrous Oxide is an AWESOME shooter in the vein of Tempest. Awesome graphics, fast action, incredible soundtrack, ONE loading screen at the very start of the disc boot, and a great challenge. Terribly underrated.
