    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
