The most recent game I've bought was Persona Q.

Normally I buy Atlus releases zero day, but I thought the $50 price tag for a 3DS game was a bit too much. I know "Atlus tax" and all that, but come on. Even proud Nintendo typically only charges $40 (or less) for their new 3DS games. Anyway, I figured Persona Q would quickly deflate in price as most Atlus games do. Well, I figured wrong, because I forgot the Persona aspect, which is a wildly popular series now. So instead of being discounted, I started seeing the game selling out at various retailers. As of this writing the game is sold out on Amazon as far as Amazon's own stock is concerned. You can still find copies on eBay though... for now. I'm saying if you're interested in Persona Q you'd best buy it while you can, because $50 might be the cheapest it's ever gonna be sealed.

Not quite in my possesion yet but I've bought a few MVS carts locally. That in itself (to find them in this part of the world) is almost unheard of.
So seriously doubting their "authenticity". Any way to know for sure?

$70 for the lot.


Those are:

-Samurai Shodown III
-Metal Slug 3
-Garou Mark Of the Wolves
-Double Dragon
-King Of Fighters '98
-Shock Troopers
-SNK vs Capcom SVC Chaos


Seller is an older lady who seems to have no idea about video games in general.
Said that they once belonged to her son.

Only pics provided are of the spine of each cart.
Will post if asked.

Nice! I may get to playing that one this year.

I'll probably just do monthly updates. No pics unless I get something really cool-looking. And like last year I'll probably just be sticking to this thread and never the "finds" one. I rarely have much luck scoring deals these days.
