    If anything, it might take a different remover. I never had issues with Goo Gone but I haven't used it in years and don't recall if I tried it on a disc based game. I have to see if I still have Zelda Skyward Sword, which I also boughtvat Family Video years ago, to see if I took the label off. If I did, then I used Goo Gone. If not, I might have to try it if I still have my bottle of the stuff.

    I couldn't find my bottle of Goo Gone or I might have tried it. But I used some years ago to get sicker residue off a plexi arcade bezel and you can still see where it was. And it made a mess when using it. At least the spot's not sticky though. Goof Off though, I've never used but have heard you need to be more careful with. I just figured the stickers aren't hurting anything and my level of caring about that sort of thing has dropped in recent years.

    I head ya there. If the games I used Goof Off on were no gifts nor if there was a push from the wife to maintain the magic of Santa Claus for the kids, those suckers would probably still be on.

    Went flea market shopping today - didn't find anything there so I hit a couple of GameXchange stores on the way back, along with another local store called Game Trade. Most of the games are $4.99 or under to score their "buy 2 games under $7.99 and get 1 free" sale. The less-than-common games I ended up paying $19.99 or less for at the Game Trade store. My PS3 and Xbox 360 collections are exploding in size. Between the two consoles I think I have 135 games.

    I had this set back in 98, as a kid. Streets is a bad Twisted Metal ripoff that I enjoy for some reason. Copter is basic, janky, and enjoyable. Both are playable on Windows 10 now, but you have to download an extra program to start and play them; otherwise, your computer's too fast for them. The "patch" programs are here, at these fan sites:

    www.streetsofsimcity.com
    www.simcopter.net

    I also had most Sims games. That was back from 98 - 2002. They were lots of fun then, I'd probably still play Tower and others now.

    I haven't had finds lately. If this was just a yard sale or thrift store thread in general, I'd probably post more often. I did find a 50s or 60s box fan in the last few months, and it was dirt cheap.

    I found out about a store not very far away that mostly sells old toys but they have a section of old games too. When I walk in, I'm shocked to see an APF MP-1000 on their shelf. I've never seen one in real life before, I've only ever seen them online. It was $100, so I didn't bother. I was also shocked to see they had a tiny selection of Emerson Arcadia 2001 and Fairchild Channel F cartridges on their shelf, I bought one each. Space Raiders was $7, and Spitfire was $5. With this purchase, I've now doubled my Fairchild library.

    Picked up a weird controller that I'd never seen before. It's a touchpad-style that is a six-button Genesis controller, but with an adaptor that's conveniently attached to the cable it can also be used as a Super Nintendo controller. $3 for this oddity.
