    I actually found something worth posting. I also had a 30% off coupon which helped. I'm not sure about current value though, especially for a complete copy.

    Thanks for that link. It is a bit hard to find info on it, it's not listed properly here on the DP guide either. It is on Atari Age listed as an R9 which is why I thought I should get it. Usually I try to stick to $5 tops for any game purchase as that's my personal comfort zone, but I make exceptions when I obviously should. At least now I do. It's been ages since I've found any game stuff remotely as good/interesting as this game.

    https://atariage.com/software_page.p...reLabelID=2707


    That original ebay listing for a complete copy shows a listing of $1999.99 but it sold with a best offer option, I guess it could have been sold at $1500.00 though I can't exactly find conclusive proof to confirm the amount. A photo of it is still available to see on watchcount, but the best offer price still can't be found from it. It used to be possible to find the actual best offer prices before ebay made some changes to their site.

    http://www.watchcount.com/?cc=US&uqs...55&uqcat=#serp



    I did manage to find this yesterday, priced at $4.99 and I used a $2 off coupon. It's complete with inserts. Out of two large stacks of DS games it was the only game really worth getting. I'm surprised I even found this so soon as it's been mediocre for games for the longest time. Usually just terrible trash games or common titles priced more than they're worth, or just recent gen games that I have no real interest in. I might find the odd controller but usually just broken systems or hookups I don't really need. I mostly find non-game stuff that's still decent. I did pass on a few things today, a loose untested GBA SP with a lousy game for $19.99, a loose PS2 slim that was modded but looked to have coffee spilled all over it(I think for $14.99-$19.99?), and a loose Xbox One controller for $3.99 which was priced well but I can't really test these at home and I assume these to be defective in some way because it seems too current to be donated(maybe I'm paranoid). I'm ignoring all the damaged/overpriced Wii, PS3, PS2, Xbox 360 consoles and hookups that are usually there. Maybe I miss other good stuff because I'm not there the whole day.

    You could try emailing the seller.

    I recently found an Atari 800 cartridge of Demon Attack at a game store for $7.95. Snore.

    I found this Coleco Pac-Man tabletop in a thrift while on vacation. No battery door (of course), bad stickers, but it was only a dollar. I need to pick up some batteries to give it a go. If it doesn't work, I have one that's got a bad joystick, maybe I can do a salvage on this one. Or turn it into a Raspberry Pi project.

    Shockingly, I found more stuff on vacation. I found another copy of Boing! for the Atari 2600, in the same flea market where I found my old copy a few years ago. It was a dollar. The joystick however cost $15, which doesn't bother me since I've wanted one since seeing it in catalogs back in the day. The joystick is a Milton Bradley Flight Commander joystick (missing the giant target sight on the tip) for the Atari 2600. I've had the pack-in game for it, Spitfire Attack, for years but I always wanted the controller too. I'm happy to have one now, even though it's in really rough shape.

    I went to a thrift store today and noticed quite a few games behind the counter. There were probably about 10 boxed SNES games but it was really hard to look with customers checking out and all the cashiers were busy so I figured I'd ask about them when we were ready to check out. But of course when we did about 10 minutes later, EVERY SINGLE ONE WAS GONE!!!


    I did end up getting Donkey Kong Country Returns(Wii) and Prince of Persia Revelations(PSP) though.

    The local Goodwill got a butt-load of donations from Gamestop. Over the week stuff's been trickling out but nothing that sparked my interest. Tonight I picked up Crime Scene, Clubhouse Games (both complete) and Transformers: Autobots (case and game) for DS for a total of $11.

    I handed Transformers to my third youngest and he couldn't figure it out but another traded him so he could take a crack at it. At twelve years old he couldn't figure it out. Then I get questions like I mastered it (played it once when it came out).

    I'll have to make sure I hit up that Goodwill to see if anything good hits the floor. I did pass up a Minecraft for 3DS for $15 and a Fire Emblem for 3DS (no idea on price) a week ago.

    The site from your link shows the complete game sold for $1500, and going to the actual source ebay link shows the game as sold for $1999.00. I would have to trust that this site actually recorded the best offer amount properly, from that ebay link I can only see the original buy-it-now pricing of $1999.00 as they don't display the best offer prices. Ebay used to show the actual sold pricing for best offers but only if viewed through another country's site, it's since been changed so I can't do that anymore. So it might have sold for $1500 or maybe not, also assuming that the buyer actually followed through on the payment and didn't request a partial refund later or any funny business.

    It's also difficult to know current pricing as pricing can change over several years and there's very few examples of recent pricing for this condition. I'll have to decide if I want to keep it for myself, possibly sell it, or possibly trade it for several rare games that I've actively been looking for. Four figures would certainly be nice.

    I have found a few other things recently but haven't got around to taking pictures, I'm not sure if it's worth the effort for the other stuff. I'll see if I get around to posting it.

    Yard sale season is starting up again. Went out today and found Super Mario Galaxy 2 for $5.

    Also found a bag of Disney Infinity stuff that the wife is now playing with the kids...after not touching it for years.

    Got myself another Nintendo Wii, bought at a Salvation Army store for $9.99. Shockingly it works, I have two others but neither have working disc drives. This one seemed to be owned by an actual adult who didn't drop it on concrete all the time like kids seem to do.

    Couldn't find any of the handful of Wii games I own, so went out to a used game/movie store today and bought a dozen titles that looked the least "kiddie". House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return, Rygar, Cruis'n, Heatseeker, Geometry Wars Galaxies, Ghost Squad, The Conduit, Battle Rage, Brunswick Zone Cosmic Bowling, Counter Force, Heavenly Guardian, Dragon Blade; Wrath of Fire, and Ocean Commander. They were between $3.99 and $6.99 except for House of the Dead which was $14.99. Pretty slim pickings as far as non-childish games goes for the Wii.

    I also picked up a loose Atari 2600 cartridge, Sea Hunt by Froggo, for $9.99.
