    Giving this a bump because there's one recently released GBA game I have yet to see ANYWHERE: Street Racing Syndicate.

    I'm pretty surprised it's been so hard to find considering it was published by DSI Games, whose games usually collect dust at game stores everywhere. Kinda odd.

    It's supposedly $9.99 used at GameStop/EB, but no store within 200 miles of me has a copy. Amazon.com has a listing for it, with no new or used copies available. Have any of you seen it anywhere?

    Lots of the games mentioned here aren't that rare at all.
    I managed to spot these pretty easy in some internet stores:
    Lunar Legend
    Cima: The Enemy
    megaman and bass
    R-Type III
    Lunar Legend
    Sonic Advance
    Double Dragon Advance
    Breath of Fire
    R-Type III: The Third Lightning
    Wario Land 4


    However I have a hard time finding new versions of these:
    Ninja Five-0
    Pocky & Rocky & Becky
    Car Battler Joe
    Tiny Toon Adventure's: Buster's Bad Dream.
    ZOE: Fist of Mars
    Onimusha Tactics: The Knights of Lodis
    Wario Land 4
    Sonic Pinball Party. (Allthough you can get it for about 20 bux in a doublepack with Sonic Advance)

    Whoops...Wrote some of them twice.
    (Wario Land 4 is supposed to be on the hard-to-find list just so you know)

    I picked up a new ZOE: Fist of Mars from frys.com last week.

    It only took me a couple of years to find that one (and one was all they had when I placed the order).
    If I failed to leave feedback for you on a deal, please contact me.

    I don't think Bejeweled exists for GBA; I know I am two years late responding to this too!

    Update on Street Racing Syndicate: I spotted it at a Best Buy last week - they had around 5 or 6 copies with the budget GBA stuff. I also spotted a couple copies at Bi-Mart (a local discount membership store chain) and have yet to see it anywhere else.

    I have a feeling SRS may become a little more common in the GBA budget bins and may not be more than a little scarce at best. I still have yet to see it at Wal-Mart, Target, GameCrazy, or GameStop/EB though, so we'll see.

    As for Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Bad Dream, new copies used to be a common sight in Fred Meyer's GBA budget racks for $15. The game is getting tougher to find new and used, but some FM out there has probably has one.

    On another note, I picked up a new copy of Colin McRae 2.0 at a GameCrazy in October for four bucks.

    How hard is a copy of Zelda Minish Cap Not For Resale to find? I found one tonight at Game Crazy and picked it up.

    I got Ninja Five-O at a GameStop Monday night, cart only for $7.99. It's the second copy I've seen in the last couple months. Glad I finally have it - the only reason I passed up the other copy was because the label was in pretty bad shape.

    I don't see Karnaaj Rally as much as I used to. My copy of Urban Yeti is still the only one I've ever seen in the wild. I haven't seen a copy of Street Racing Syndicate anywhere since I got it at Best Buy. but then again, I haven't been to that Best Buy since the day I got it there.

    I saw a copy of Santa Claus saves the Earth today at Video Games Etc. How rare are these now? It is released by Telegames so it won't be common but there are a few copies on Ebay but they never turn up anywhere else.

    Not really a game but I'm pretty sure that Pocket Professor gba cartridge will end up being quite rare.

    How about Metal Slug Advance? I haven't seen that anywhere for almost 2 years, but then again, I only pay attention to the CIB games. I'm just curious if I should keep sitting on the factory-sealed version that I have

    That never came out in the USA technically. They (Everyone) are only selling Euro versions.

    I had a stash of these sealed that I could not give away for $25 each. They are uncommon, but far from rare.

    One game I'm glad my friend got for me in Japan was Elevator Action Old and New, I NEVER see that on eBay.

    I found a TON of Tiny Toons Scary Dreams at a local BJ's Wholesale Club. I was looking in the racks of all the throwaway GBA games and I saw three copies and picked one up because it was less then 20 bucks and Treasure made it.

    The game's alright but it NEEDS a block button. It plays a lot like a beat em' up but so many things swamp the screen and it's easy to die because you can't block.

    Joe had a copy of Minish Cap at the DP store, I ALMOST got it but my credit card kept getting rejected...

    Why the hell are Nintendo first party games hard to find? Minish Cap, Wario Ware Twisted and Touch. I can never find them.

    Any of the TOMY games, Little League Baseball 2002 by New Kid Co, Pocket Professor you can't find in stores, just online, there are around 10 that are pretty hard to locate, but I can't think of them right now. I know Little League Baseball's box is brutally tough.

    I don't know if these are indeed rare or just not available in my area but they're the only ones missing from my collection that I've never seen locally.

    Boulder Dash EX
    Gem Smashers
    Motocross Maniacs Advance
    Sea Trader

    Also while not rare, finding complete copies of Konami Krazy Racers and the Mickey Mouse games seems to be harder than it should be.
