    Later that day got another Super Metroid for 3.99.

    Nothing much on Saturday. Stopped into a newly opened GS and found a minty Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter for DS @ $7. I plan to go looking around tomorrow. There is a local mom n' pop store that is holding some kind of retro game convention this weekend that I want to check out. Would have gone today but I wanted to see Wreck-It Ralph.

    Starting the month out right. First up a few things I found at the local Goodwill...



    MechWarrior 2 (PC) $3 - Neat find, because I never had a copy growing up the 90s, but always wanted to play it. Now is the time! Bit of a pain in the ass to get working on modern machines though.
    MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries (PC) $3 - Factory Sealed!
    Microsoft SideWinder Gamepad (PC) $2 - Protip: When buying PC controlers be sure you have the proper hook-ups to actually use it. I was so disapointed to get this home and find out my PC lacks a 'Game Port'. And because these old controlers are analog and not digital you can't just by a USB adapter. Too bad, I really liked the feel of it.
    Naruto: Clash of Ninja (GCN) $4
    Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 (GCN) $4 - I know nothing about these games (other then they are fighting games) and my intrest in Naruto is pretty much nonexistent. But I figured they might be worth grabbing for a few bucks.

    Next up, my (probably last for the year) trip to the Mansfield Drive-In Flea Market bore some serious fruit...



    Star Fox (SNES) $5 - Been wanting a copy of this for a while. Pretty much every one I found was over priced though. This one wasn't too over priced so I got it.
    Secret of Evermore (SNES) $13 - Had a price tag of $25 but the guy was willing to make a deal. Another game I've been wanting to own for ages, finally at the right price.
    ???! (SNES) $3 - Can you guess what this is? Can you? It was so strange, I was walking by this guy's table and it looked like it was covered in junk, but laying on top was this poor butchered game cart. Discolored, dirty, every label peeled off... it was in sorry shape. But, a sliver of the front label was still visible, just a tiny bit of background imagery showing the statue of liberty. And because the human mind is a funny thing I immediately realized what I was looking at. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES IV: TURTLES IN TIME! And it works!
    Sega Saturn $15 - Another huge score for me this week of another console I wanted to get my hands on. Came in a ratty old box that appears that the previous owner literally cut holes into so they could play it in the box (hello overheating/fire hazard). I'm on the fence about just tossing the box since its so dirty and cut up, what do you think? Didn't come with any controllers, or AV cable. So I'll have to sort that out. Seems to use the same AV as the Genesis though. Oh and it had a free copy of Virtual Cop 2 inside. So if you're keeping score at home, I'm now 3 out of 3 on disc based consoles I've bought with free games inside.
    Sega Genesis 6-Button Controller $3 - I sort of bought this praying it was a Saturn controller, no such luck. BUT, I did want it as I've head the 6-button Genesis controllers are very nice. It definitely feels better in my hands.

    So yeah I think I did alright this week.

    Nope, it's a different plug with a different pinout and a different exterior ground shape.

    Today I wandered into town (in Mexico) to see if any of the local "dollar" stores still had copies of Supreme Commander available. They had some for months but I never picked one up - then one day they removed all the games, DVDs and CDs from the store that was closest to me. I decided to check one of their other stores which is about fifteen minutes away by bus, across town, and found a few CDs, and some cheapy DVDs.

    However, I decided to walk into the pharmacy next door (which is owned by the same company). I found that copy of Hitler's Clone at another one of their stores... and found a few more DVDs.


    The pack on the left contains six drug lord / Mexican gangster films and was released by Brentwood Entertainment in the US some six years ago. This thing was hidden away inside a shelf display that had other DVDs and CDs.
    The pack on the right contains three random movies, two of which were of interest to me (the other one, not so much.)

    Here's the awesome part - both of these sets were on discount. The one with six movies had a price of twenty pesos - about $1.66 USD. The second one? 54 pesos, about $4.50. However this one had different prices because they'd put the package on clearance. So I went to the register to pay and they only charged me 36 pesos for both - THREE DOLLARS.

    Too bad that six pack has double sided DVDs. I freakin' HATE them.

    Edit:
    Well... looks like that six pack might not be a total bust after all.

    That movie is more than worth it.

    Default Is Flashbacks in Seaside GONE?

    Ok.hereís my pick ups..

    I wonít go into prices,all I can say is I paid less then I hope to sell the items for on ebay...I have so much to get to with not much time...I buy and sell to make money,Itís my job not a hobby..I am a stay at home dad with three kids,if I canít make money off of something I donít buy it nor can I afford to give things away or for what I paid for them...


    My best find however was NES SNOW BROTHERS $3.00
    This was purchased with other NES games but I sold them to a friend who came over before I could snap a picture.



    Itís been crazy with family members losing houses in the storm,other family members taken to shelters,no power,no internet,fluctuating power,no gas...a mess of a town here..I spent a lot of time prepping for the storm after so much flood loss from last years storm..
    I have NOTHING to complain about compared to what other people are going though..
    Right now I need to catch up to daily life,fast..
