    Default Weekend Finds: 8/30 - 8/31

    Well I figured I'D start it off this weekend! Just got in from some garage sales and a few flea's (more to come, waiting for my accomplice). Anyways, stumbled upon this stuff very early this morning!

    Boxed Colecovision COMPLETE and in really beautiful shape, with 5 complete and beautiful boxed games... Don't remember 100% what they were, but here are the ones I do remember.

    Smurfs
    Mr. Do

    Total cost for the system and the 5 complete games, $20.00

    More to come...

    Well, today was looking pretty crappy. Plus, after finding a complete FF3 yesterday I didn't think I could do better today. However....

    $15 -

    Disney VCR Board Game
    "The Wizard" VHS movie
    Handheld Tiger Head to Head Football
    Handheld Tiger Rampage
    PS2 Vertical Stand
    Super Mario World (SNES loose)
    Home Alone 2 (SNES loose)
    The Magical Quest f/ Mickey Mouse (SNES loose)
    Super Adventure Island (SNES loose)
    Hogan's Alley (NES loose)
    Legend of Zelda (NES loose)
    Atari Arcade Classics (2disc PC game loose)
    Atari classics (PC loose)


    then, at the very LAST yard sale around...

    $5 - Bag of NES games (all loose)

    Arknoid
    Puzznic
    Kid Icarus (sweet!)
    Tecmo Bowl
    Xenophobe
    Krazy Kreatures
    Pyramid
    Elevator Action
    Dig Dug II
    Legend of Kage
    Solstice
    Dr. Mario
    Alpha Mission
    Athena
    loose NES controller

    but then when I got home "Oh wait, there's another game at the bottom of the bag..."

    pulled it out, saw the Tengen label on the back

    "Heh... maybe it's Tetris."


    ...

    "Oh. It's Tetris. Tengen Tetris. loose mint. Hmm."


    I then let out an evil cackle the likes never heard by my poor mother.

    Holy crap. It's been a while.

    i know most of u guys go to flea markets, theres no flea markets here, no thrifts, but there is swam meets, these swan meets might not be the ones u know there not like a big place with alot of video games for sale, no mine is outdoor and its like people having garage sales, theres about 200+ people selling crap, so u really have to keep an eye out but when u find something say a nes cart its never more than 50 cents, snes and genesis never more than $2, but the people are really retarted unlike flea markets they dont argue there just money hungry, so u can always i mean always talk down the price i didnt find anything this weekend all i really saw was a 3do with some games for 45, but i had all the games laready so i didnt find anything

    My trip to the flea market Friday was a dud, but I did find some decent stuff at EB:
    PSX Tomba--$10
    PSX Robo Pit--$4
    PSX Wipeout 3--$3
    Robotron 64--$4

    I also found some really cheap strategy guides at a Gamestop on Thursday:
    House of the Dead 2--$1
    Crash Bandicoot 3--$2
    Resident Evil 2--$2
    Hybrid Heaven--$2

    Since when is EB selling complete PSX games for $3 and $4 dollars a piece? I'd never noticed that before. They're not all sports crap either, there's a lot of really good stuff to be had.

    I was pissed at one Garage sale, boxed(box no foam) intellevision with 10 boxed complete games(non worth anymore than 5) for the great price of 149. i said, is what the original price on it or are you selling it for that? he said no what was the sale price. I said no way are you sure your correct. Yep. thats the price, take it or leave it. I laughed and he said that that was the ebay going rate. I laughed again and told him i'll give him $30 at the most, he asked me to leave.

    then made my way to some tent sale and picked up a handful of DC games(nothing good) for $25 and a gitaroo man for 5.
    My life and perception has changed, but my principals are the same.

    Default Weekend finds

    Nothing too great this weekend, a bunch of common NES and Genesis games for $1-$4 each. Highlights include a boxed River City Ransom.

    Yesterday I got a bunch of mid-seventies to eighties RPG and Avalon Hill board games for $1 to $2 each. One of them sold on eBay for $35 so I did pretty good!

    Today I passed up an old-school full-size baseball arcade game, probably dating from teh mid-eighties. It was a steal at $50 but I don't have the room for it.

    So today morning i had to get a new bag for skewl, so i go to the nearest mall an dbrought two n64 games. There's been a video game store there for a while but i never go there because the prices are crazy. Snes rpgs are 50$-70$ . So today i decide to go since I'm there. And i see a new guy that i havent seen before. I told the guy I was regular customer and i said I have never see you before and hes like yeah I started working here 2 weeks ago. Anywayz im thinking to myself time to take advantage of this new guyand get cheap snes rpgs. So he's like what would u like and i say can I get Secert oF Evermore for snes. He's like 70 bucks and i say how bout 2 n64 games for trade. He likes what do u have and I showed him Blast Crops and Mario Kart and he said fine but I had to pay 15$ so I say sure. Right then the orignal owner comes from the backs and finds out the deal and says srry i can give it to you for 35 So i decide to give to n64 games and pick lethal enforcers loose for snes(is that a good deal). Trades done and as i'm leaving I see lethal enforecers in a big box like display one for sega. And I'm like can i give back the snes letahl enforecers and get the sega in the box with revoler he says fine but I had to pay 15$. So he hands me the box , its huge. Then i give him the 15$ and I say thanks and the moron forgot to take back the snes version . So basically i have the

    Snes -Lethal Enforecers loose
    Sega- Mint Boxed With Revoler Lethal Enforecer

    and all for two n64 games and 15$

    My best find ever

    Blast Corps + Mario Kart 64 + cash = 2 copies of LETHAL ENFORCERS? Yuck.

    Should have kept the N64 games and the cash, rather than getting those pieces of garbage. Konami may have been gods when it came to 8 and 16 bit gaming, but when it came to those games they proved that not even they were infallible, imo...

    And I agree with Yashiro - English PLEASE.
