    I went on another search for non-kiddie Nintendo Wii games again today, and came across this in a Movie Trading Company for $19.99.



    I'm disappointed with it. I was imagining that it would be the original arcade game, maybe hacked to use a regular joystick rather than the spinner joystick it originally used. It never occured to me that it would be the crappy port to the NES. I've bought a generic Famiclone-type machine in that same arcade cab style case, with a bunch of terrible or hacked games on it (oddly enough, bought at a Hastings Entertainment that used to be in the location the Movie Trading Company where I bought this one currently is) from this same manufacturer and was horribly disappointed with that one too. Looks like this is my final purchase from the My Arcade company.

    These are from May 2nd. Spontaneous purchases at half price books. Baten kaitos has the soundtrack sealed and stuck to the back. Paid the prices marked. Warcraft was $1.50.

    I stopped at a local thrift to find some books by Mary Higgins Clark for my wife as she's laid up from foot surgery. Found a bunch along with some gaming hoodies:

    GBA games with DS case $2: games were Pokemon Sapphire, Polly Pocket, Backyard Football and I think a Lizzie McQuire game. The case looks like a tiny purse with the inside resembling the looks and texture of a jewelry box.

    Guitar Hero for DS: $1. Included accessory and game.

    Earlier this year:

    Bought 3 or 4 Original Xbox controllers new for $3 or $4 each at Half Price Books.

    Today:

    Bought a Genesis II with cables and several controllers for $10 at a yard sale. Glad I got something at all.

    So, my kids (7 and 3) have been really getting into Disney Infinity lately, but we only have the gimped Wii version which doesn't have multiplayer in the playset mode, so me and my wife had been kinda sorta toying with the idea of getting one of the newer systems that has the feature.

    So, anyways. while looking for some additional characters for them to use with it we ran across the following lot for $110.

    A Wii-U system
    Pro controller
    A couple Wii motion plus controllers
    Pretty much all the Disney Infinity 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 characters
    A few Skylanders characters
    And the following games...
    -Batman Arkham City
    -Disney Infinity
    -Disney Infinity 2.0
    -Disney Infinity 3.0
    -Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
    -Fast and Furious Showdown
    -Lego Avengers
    -Lego Jurassic World
    -Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens
    -Lego Marvel Super Heros
    -Minecraft
    -New Super Luigi U
    -Skylanders Superchargers
    -Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
    -Splatoon
    -Super Mario 3D World

    I wasn't necessarily in the market for(/couldn't justify buying) a Wii-U but it seemed too good a deal to pass up...even if it is an oddity of a system that never really caught on. But hey, I have quite a few of those in my collection from generations past.

    Persona 3 Official Design Works (Used, Udon English Ver.) - $8.39

    This art book, as well as the P4 and Bravely Second ones list below were all found my local Value Village. When I researched the books at home, I realized the P3 one was out of print and stupidly expensive.


    Persona 4 Official Design Works (Used, Udon English Ver.) - $9.33

    Bravely Second Design Works (Japanese) - $9.33

    Poinie’s Poin (Used, Complete) - $21.06


    Technically this should have been in the import finds thread, but I thought it wasn't worth it for one game. Actually, it was a post in the import thread that made me aware of this game's existence. For those unaware, despite this being a Japan only release, the game is playable in English. Even weirder is the fact the English script was apparently written by one of the writers of South Park (and it shows)!


    Sand of Destruction The Complete Series Anime Set (Used, Complete) - $5.37

    The Muppets Blu-Ray (New, Sealed) - $5.58

    WiiU Pro Controller - $6.70


    I found this randomly hanging in the electronics section of Value Village. I picked it up thinking I a cheap alternative to the Switch Pro Controller. As it turns out, it can be made compatible with the adapter below.


    8Bitdo Wireless Bluetooth Adapter - MSRP

    While I don't have Switch yet, I was able to get the WiiU Pro Controller and adapter working with some game emulators on my MacBook.


    The Very Best of Sega (Fan Remix CD) - $14.99

    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (Complete, Nintendo Selects Ver.) - $19.95

    Freedom Planet Deluxe Edition (Limited Run Games Preorder) - MSRP

    Skies of Arcadia Eternal Soundtrack (Wayo Record Preorder) - MSRP


    Last I heard, this will be shipping out sometime this month.

    A few weeks ago my daughter broke the hinge off her Zelda 3DS XL system. I bought a replacement one (after market) and attempted to swap out the plastic. Two hours and a crooked back (from hunching over to see these tiny pieces) later, the clip fot the touch screen flew off and busted. So I had to find replacement parts.

    Anyway, I ventured onto the 'Bay to see if I couas I've been lucky finding fixer-upper systems for a good price. My then-unknown-if-working Wii U is still working great, my Vita that bled power works great after I removed the cell modem...why not go for a hat trick? In my findings I came across a "New" 3DS XL system that supposedly worked but had cosmetic damage (paint on top lid peeling, some dings here and there). The seller could not test, but I took a chance and won it for about 50ish dollars.

    When it arrived, I charged it up overnight as it would not start with the power cord. The next day, the system came alive and worked beautifully. It even came with Minecraft loaded. I bought a skin to cover the scratches andca stylus and it's ready to go!

    This was from about a month(?) ago at a Salvation Army, all for $10. I nearly passed thinking I had pretty much all these, plus a bunch are sports, but remembered something about Hercules being really good or worth something? For $10 I went ahead. Turns out I didn't have the ones on the right + Spyro Ripto's Rage (not pictured).

    You might be thinking of Herc's Adventures, which is on the rare side and sells for like $75-$100 complete these days. But apparently the Disney game can pull in like $20+ itself, which is more than I would expect. Either way, that's still a great haul for only 10 bucks.

    You are probably right. Easy to get wires crossed with stuff like that. Unfortunately, and I think you can even see it in the pic, the a/v port appears to be jacked up. Only get 1 channel of sound out of it, and no video.

    I recently snagged up a little bundle of GBA joy from a local thrift store a few days ago for $10 (all loose):

    -Blue GBA Advance with charger (with a goofy "Ratatouille" sticker on the top)
    -Super Mario Advance
    -Mario Golf
    -super Mario Kart Grand Prix
    -neat little zippy case that's not game related, but have no clue what it was originally intended for
    and a bunch of kid games (Petz, The Incredibles, Over the Hedge, Cars, etc.) with a few sports (one of the Need for Speed games I think, two different years of Madden) to total 15 cartridges.

    The GBA, sticker aside, is in immaculate shape for being a kid's system.

    I swear I think Bira Bira wants me to continue to collect but with portable systems as that's about all I can get game time on these days.

    Disney's Hercules is actually a good 2D platform game, it also came out on the PC. Maybe I mentioned it elsewhere on the forum years ago. At least you also found MediEvil as it's a somewhat expensive game, it alone should more than cover the cost you spent on everything. Even with a broken PS1 that's a really good deal and I would have bought the lot too. It's hard to find any PS1 games where I am anymore.

    Stopped at a video store and came across some interesting titles:

    Wii U

    Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
    NES Remix

    3DS

    Pokemon Sun
    Pokemon Omega Ruby

    The games are complete and the total (with my rental) was $31, so the games were maybe $6ish a piece. The PokeMon games are going to be gifts this Christmas.


    Passed up an Xbox console at a thrift store. They wanted $10 and it only had the power cord. When I plugged it in, the fans turned on right away. The DVD drive wouldn't open (probably dry belt-I can fix that) but the auto power on concerned me.

    Went to a yard sale this morning that said they had a lot of games for multiple systems, which they did, but they were mostly sports games or just stuff I wasn't interested in. I only ended up getting Kingdom Hearts 2 for PS2 and Tron 2.0 for pc.

    This afternoon we went to 2 different game stores and all we got was Disney Infinity characters for the kids. It's gotten to the point where everything I would be interested in, I already have, never shows up in the wild, or is more than I'm willing to spend.

    alright i found a thing
    popped into a computer donation shop the next town over on a work trip and i check with them from time to time to see if any thing had been donated and this time they had

    PSP 3000 (black, loose)
    Final Fantasy Tactics (complete)
    Every Extend Extra (complete)
    Lumines (complete)

    all for $10

    Then i popped into the video rental store down the road that has a game shop in the corner and got

    UN Squadron $20 (loose)
    Clash at Demon Head $12 (loose)

    retail prices but i also want this place to stick around and after 9 months with out any thing its ok

    Then i hit a goodwill on the way out of town and found

    PSP Charger $4
    xbox - Sega GT / JSRF combo $2.50 (complete)

    i get the feelin that psp charger at goodwill was the one that was supposed to go with the psp system at the first place
    the psp works fine with it too, it has no battery but aside from that and a bit of dust/dirt it was well taken care of, no major wear, no scratches at all and no signs of being dropped
