    Default February 2013 finds

    Guess I'll start this off.

    Stopped at a few Goodwills and found all of the following for about $50 total. Not pictured is seven girly adult mangas for my girlfriend.

    Also not game related, but I needed a new radio for a 97 Camry I just bought as it still had the OEM radio in it. I decided I wanted the Pioneer DEH-P8400BH. It sells for about $170-$190 in retail stores still, and online for $130 and up. I found an open box at best buy that was still brand new for $90 plus they had a %10 open box sale going on so it was even cheaper!

    Just got a couple of Steam games in trades: Don't Starve (a survival game by the developers of Shank and Mark of the Ninja) and Mini Ninjas (by... the Hitman / Kane & Lynch guys.)

    ... yeah, talk about weird dev stuff, heh. :P

    Nice wrestling score.
    I been thinking about picking up some wrestling DVDs to watch at work on break. I might get a copy of the ECW and rise and fall of WCW DVDs.

    Yesterday I hit up a Value Village and a Goodwill for the first time in over a month. Picked up 5 games for just under $20.



    Syphon Filter, Soulblade and Medal of Honor were $2.99 each and the genesis games were $5 each
    All complete besides Altered Beast. Didn't have the manual.

    I was about to pick up a copy of WWF Smackdown but $2.99 was too much for it.

    Mini rant: Who prices the games at Value Village? Half the games that were there had $2.99 priced on them but in the same pile also had games priced at $5.99. A handful of them were the same games as the $2.99 pile. Like wtf?

    Pricing on games and gamestuff really varies at thrifts. I once went to a reuzit where a loose joe montanna football was under glass and priced at $3, a complete NFL 94 was under glass and priced at $4...And a copy of lion king for genesis complete with box, manual, gargoyles ad and full-size jungle book poster was $1. I think they thought it was a VHS tape The clerk was in her 60s and knew it was worth more, but was totally down with it because she exploited the same shop to get rare santa figurines for pennies.

    They also had this plastic vertical casette tape storage rack they wanted $5 for while they wanted $3-2 for all the other storage racks. Would be nice for genesis, but a little pricey for that. Had half a mind to switch stickers but decied to just let it be in the end.

    Just picked up more games.



    Everything but Halo wars was $40.
    Halo Wars I bought at this game store for $15. I been trying to find that game forever. I'm happy I found it.



    $40 bucks for all the anime. I'm not an anime fan but my sister loves it. So all is for her.

    I hope you didn't pay much for the Trigun boxset because it's a bootleg. The rest of the sets are legit though.

    You are correct. It's all good. As long as its plays in a DVD player, it's all good

    Resistance: The Gathering Storm book
    Mass Effect: Ascension book
    Perfect Dark: Initial Vector book
    Resident Evil: Genesis book
    Resident Evil: Extinction book
    Mega Man 8(PS1) $3
    Super Mario 64(N64) $4

    All the video game books were 50 cents each or 5 for a dollar. I haven't read any yet but I can only imagine how bad the Resistance book is going to be considering how much the story of the first game sucked. The Mega Man and Mario games were also from Goodwill. For some reason I can never find complete Mega Man games in the wild, no matter which system they are on. I either find disc only copies or disc/cart and manuals.



    3DO Import Lot

    This 3DO lot(some of the games I'm not certain of their titles) was snagged for alittle under $200. It only seems like a lot of money for them but it was actually a really good deal because the money games are still sealed. I wouldn't mind keeping some of them for my collection but I expect a pretty decent return on them.



    Pokemon Pokedex $1.50
    DDR: Mario Mix(GC) $4
    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind(Xbox) $4
    Razor Blade Smile screening copy vhs $1
    Resident Evil: Dead Aim(PS2) $4
    Grand Theft Auto IV Soundtrack Sampler $1
    Snes/N64 A/V Adapter $2

    All of this stuff came from Goodwill. I keep finding copies of Morrowind like they are pennies on the street and most have been in very good condition. Resident Evil: Dead Aim is a game I've been looking for since, well for a long time. I don't have a light gun for my PS2 but I'll probably just play thru it with a controller since thats how I played thru RE: Survivor. I'm not sure if the Grand Theft Auto disc was a preorder/promo or if it was just included as part of the collector's edition of GTA IV. Either way it was a pretty neat find for a dollar.

    So you know when family knows you collect and think of you when they are out shopping? My sister just brought me this from a Goodwill:



    Faria for the NES.

    Expensive for a Goodwill at $10, but it does sell in the neighbourhood of $50 around here so I can't complain.

    Really nice shape too for an exrental, the only signs of being so was a little sticker on the back that lifted right off and the contacts were in great shape (although I still polish new games to my collection before playing them).

    Nice Sunday surprise anyways.

    ^ Now that's awesome man. Finding a rarer game at a Goodwill is a thing of the past for me, unfortunately.

    Another GameGear title in the mail today. Super happy to see this one arrive.






    One thing about this packaging that's kind of cool is that the packaging the game itself came in identifies itself as a "SEGA Recycled Pulp Tray"...of all the things SEGA did for gaming, I'd never think they actually made an effort to help the environment.

    SEGA just one-upped awesome possum big time.

    EDIT: even though the pics don't show it, it DOES have the hangtab as well. I know a few people get super iffy on those things.

    EDIT2: Fantasia finally came in the mail. Expected a loose cartridge for $3.40....got it COMPLETE IN BOX. Definitely happy about that.

    Wow, a backlog of finds. Sorry. I just hadn't bothered with these things lately.

    Freakin' Photobucket is adding garbage to my file names again... ugh. Anyway.

    Story time. I was wandering through my local flea market on Saturday when I noticed a booth had a bunch of red looking things inside. I got close and noticed... they were... uh. Foxes.


    They're from a game company called ChangYou. They make MMORPGs for the Chinese market and have a few that also work locally. The booth had hundreds of these and it looked like they didn't know what to do with 'em. I grabbed a pair for me and one of each for my nieces, and that was two bucks. I told a friend about these and he whined, saying I should've gotten one of the keychain ones for him since he likes to put stuff like that in his Derpy Hooves pack thing (I know, I know.) So on Monday I grabbed one for him and two more for the nieces. I intend to give each of them a pair on Saturday when they come visit. (They're 16 and 8 respectively. And yes, both love to play with their uncle Dave's games. :P)

    And today's finds:


    The PC game was fifty cents. The DDR game is brand new and cost me five bucks.

    ... shut up.

    Other finds from the past few weeks:


    Cantinflas Show 5-DVD volumes 1 and 2 (new, $1 each)
    Savage Sisters ($2)
    Los Caballeros del Zodiaco: La muerte de Hades (new, Mexican bootleg, $1)
    La maldiciůn de Nostradamus (new, $1)
    La fuga del Rojo (new, $1)

    Some of you guys may remember Cantinflas show under its American name, Amigo and Friends. Caballeros del Zodiaco is a bootleg from Mexico. How it ended up in the US, I dunno. The Nostradamus flick is... well, one of his descendants is an evil wizard and wants to take over the world. And a scientist must stop him. La fuga del Rojo is a typical 1980's action flick with the man that gives Chuck Norris nightmares, Mario Almada.


    Then last week I got this stuff. And Action Man for the Dreamcast.

    This week:

    Pink Floyd / Dark Side of the Moon (SACD remaster from 2003) - $1
    Save Ferris - Introducing... (EP, $1)

    The Save Ferris EP sounds SO DIFFERENT from their first album!

    This is from yesterday and today:

    Ninja Warriors (new) - $1
    The American Poop Movie (new) - $2
    La venganza del Rojo: La fuga del Rojo 2 - $2
    Camino al infierno - $2

    Sadly, the Ninja Warriors DVD doesn't have a Zuntata soundtrack. Also, what kind of jerkbags add the movie trailer BEFORE the movie itself? They spoiled everything! I have no idea what American Poop movie is about but the title was catchy. After getting La fuga del Rojo the other week I found out that there was a sequel, but idiot sellers want big bucks for it. And then I found it here. And Camino al infierno stars Mario Almada's younger brother, Fernando... which I already owned in a three pack. I didn't realize it because the artwork was different. Oh well, no big loss.
