    Default January 2013 Finds

    I'm starting the new year off right. I've been trying since Saturday to get Far Cry 3 for Target's sale price of $39.99. Every store I've been to within about a 50 mile radius of my house has been sold out. Finally snagged a copy at Wal Mart today and got them to match the rain check Target gave me on Saturday. Happy New Year everybody!

    Three Pokemon Strategy Guides $3 each
    Xenosaga Episode 1 and 2(PS2) $3 each
    Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3(PS2) $3 each
    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess(Wii) $8.99
    WWE 12(360) $10
    Dragon Quest VIII(PS2) $3
    Hip Hop Dance Experience(Kinect) $4

    I found most of this stuff at Goodwill. I wish they would have had those three/six Pokemon games but I'll take what I can get. The PS2 games are all like new but DQVIII was missing the game disc. It had the Final Fantasy XII demo and a Final Fantasy XII game disc. Thats probably a good thing since it doesn't look like DQVIII is worth that much complete. The Hip Hop Dance game disc has one of those annoying rings around it so I now know why it was a Target return but I need to repair it. Twilight Princess and WWE 12 were Best Buy sale grabs. It's now dawned on me that I have three WWE wrestling games on 360 and haven't played a single one of them.



    Alan Wake(360) Hong Kong version $30
    Angel Complete series on dvd $9
    Bust A Groove demo in Duke Nukem(PS1) sleeve $1
    A bunch of preorder swag from various games covering various systems $7

    Almost all versions of Alan Wake are suppose to be region free, including this one. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but if nothing else it's one more thing for my AW collection. I was somewhat surprised a guy was selling the complete Angel series for so little. I was less surprised by my bad habit of not checking to see if all the disc were in there first. It's only missing two disc from season 2 and even if I had known this thats still a really good deal. But I need to start doing a better job at checking my game and movie disc before I leave from purchasing them second hand. At another table a guy was selling lots of games and he had a little container with several loose games and demos. I hate loose disc but Bust A Groove's demo is kind of rare. So is Duke Nukem but the disc wasn't in there so I asked if I could use it for BAG and he agreed. All the preorder stuff is from the same dude I bought stuff from last week at the flea market, only this time he had a few new preorder items.



    Soul Calibur V limited edition(360) $20
    American Pie: Band Camp dvd $1.91
    The Mythology Bible 66 cents

    Although I already have Soul Calibur V I suppose I will get atleast a little use from the extras. The price on that thing kept going down and nobody was interested long enough for me to finally grab it cheap. I picked up the American Pie and Mythology book at a thrift store. I know the movie is going to suck but it was cheap enough for me to grab it. I'll be using the Mythology book as a reference for an upcoming work project.

    My first game purchase of the new year is....

    May's Mystery: Forbidden Memories (DS)

    I found it for $9.99 at a local closeout store here called Ollie's. I had seen it in there before Christmas and went back today to check to see if they still had it and they did.

    Just got a copy of Rolling Thunder 2 for the genesis in the mail from an online listing for $7. It was described as "game with case, acceptable condition".





    Complete with manual, no stickers, absolutely pristine condition. I love it when sellers don't think.

    Way to go on the dreamcast finds! Don't know a lot about PC/DVD values but I'm sure they were fairly good deals, too.

    Default I found all this for $50

    Got a good deal on CL yesterday. Some guy was selling a lot of Gamecube N64 and Dreamcast consoles and games for $40. I wrote him as fast as I could and offered $50 just because I knew it was worth more and wanted to be decent.

    I plan on keeping one console and games and selling the rest. Can't decide which console I want to keep. Kinda just playing all the games and looking them up finding out what's worth what. I'm more into NES SNES and Genesis so a lot of this is new to me.

    A mod may do it if they see it. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it too much
