    I picked up two loose NES carts:

    Pooyan (Hong Kong Version) $3
    Popeye (Hong Kong Version) $3

    And, I also got a Sega Channel Cart for $7.

    The guy's son told him that the Sega Channel cart couldn't be used anymore, so he gave me the old "Oh, it's a collectors item!" story. But, I didn't bite.

    I know I've already talked about it but I haven't actually bought anything in *so* long I have to say it again (all in CAD of course)...

    Genesis: King's Bounty: The Conquerer $5
    Genesis: Centurion: Defender of Rome $5
    PSX: Vandal Hearts $20
    PSX: Final Fantasy Tactics $15 (non-Greatest Hits version).
    VCS: Asteroids $5

    Yeah I already had Asteroids. But the label was just incredible. And I think I've managed to secure both releases of it now (the new one has the copyright screen, I'm pretty sure my other one doesn't but I haven't checked yet).

    RPGs are *so* hard to come by in the GTA that I didn't mind paying $20 for Vandal Hearts. I'm assuming I'll enjoy it anyway (I've read nothing to make me think otherwise).

    I was *really* stoked about FFT - it's the first non GH version I've ever seen. (NOT an exageration).
    Time will be when the broadest river dries
    And the great cities wane and last descend
    Into the dust, for all things have an end

    Hi guys,

    I'm new, as of a half-hour ago, but I've been checking your boards out for a while...

    EB

    PS1 All-Star Slamming D-Ball $2.69
    PS1 Tennis $2.69
    PS1 Dino Crisis 2 $9.99
    DC Midway's Arcade Hits Vol. 1 $8.99
    GC Hunter: The Reckoning $4.99

    What can I say? Hunter was ten bucks, but EB has a list of coupons that expire today! Sorry, Sixswitch!

    That one and Dino Crisis 2 were new. And Midway better work!

    The EB Edge card also got me over...

    Sears

    PS2 Hot Shots Golf 3 $9.99

    Sears is having a pretty decent sale this weekend, too!
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    Firehawk (sealed)
    Quattro Sports (sealed)
    Spy Hunter (loose)
    Defender II (loose)
    RC Pro Am (loose)
    Commando (loose)

    I found mint, complte copies of Sparkster and Risky Woods for Genesis for $9 total. I also scored some pretty good wrestling tapes, including Invasion '92, which features the only Shawn Michaels-Ric Flair match ever filmed. (yes, I'm creepy)

    On saturday I went into 2 stores, at the VOA i got a NES TOP LOADER with 2 controllers 1 of them a dog Bone controller with power supply and RF switch for $4.99. The funny thing about this find is I was just in the store the day before and they had no video game stuff. Then I drive up near the store the next day to to drop my son off at his freinds house. I only had like 2 minutes to run in the store and check to see if thay have anything new. I almost said forget it because I was just in there yesterday, but something told me to go in and check. So I run in the store and I look in the 2 or 3 spots in the store where they put there electronic stuff and there it was a nice Nes Top Loader. I Asked the lady when did this come in and she said they just put it out on the shelf like 5 minutes ago. So I was like this is awesome. So then I had to drive my other son down to the indoor golf driving range. So I drop him off, so now I have like 30 minutes to wait so I go over to the Salvation army store. This store is bad for overpricing video game Items and then they tend to put all there video games stuff behind glass. So i am walking buy the vcrs and tvs and I spot a Sega Saturn core system no power cords or cables but i bought it for $4.99. So I take everything home. I hook everything up and both systems works fine. So I am greatful for these 2 finds in the wild. Happy Hunting Gamers.

    If it plugs into the wall I want it. Im
    addicted to old school electronics.
