$10 or less?

It was $15, but with shipping getting one off ebay is about the same price and i can actually try this one out before I buy it. I may just build my own NES arcade stick from parts though; I've got a few extra controllers laying around. I have no use for turbo.

True. Shipping would even it out.

Picked up several things yesterday at local Goodwills, not a ton of gaming stuff tho. I did get KOTOR for $3 and immediately sold it on Amazon for $20. (Reselling is the only thing keeping me from being homeless atm.) Also picked up some various electronics that I can resell. I'm bummed b/c I keep missing good deals on CL tho. The last really good one I saw was for a Saturn and a bunch of expensive RPGs for $50. Really wanted it not just for resell value but b/c I've been wanting a copy of Magic Knight Rayearth (one of the games in the lot). Also saw a really good Gamecube games lot but looks like someone else will be getting it. (Had Pikmin 2 in it amongst others.)
I have a ton of games listed on my eCrater Site!

I feel you; someone listed a black EA Sports Dreamcast, NES, PS1, SNES and NES+a bunch of games (including Super Mario RPG) for $40. I sent him an email but he never replied, and the listing got deleted a few days later. I'm guessing his roommate/girlfriend made the listing by mistake, but I can't help but curse the possibility that someone else got that deal.

I posted something in the "WTF/LOL ebay whatever" thread about this listing on Craigslist for several, like I don't even know how many, maybe 40 or 50 Saturn games and a Saturn console. I emailed them and never heard back from them and the listing was deleted after that (which I just noticed today). I think sometimes people are just fishing for offers, to see how much they can make on their stuff. Or maybe just being assholes. Idk but it sucks, because stuff like that never shows up in my area, and when it does, they don't respond to their email.

That reminds me, I did get Activision Anthology PS2 for $2.50 from one the other day! I have had some pretty sweet Mega Drive finds there over the years, but not in the last year or 2.


A couple years ago Cashies bumped up the prices of all there retro stuff, it use to be a 'Megadrive Games $5' kind of place, but now everything is priced differently, usually around eBay prices, but stuff does slip through.

I've seen these deals and I've actually got them so they are some times real. Some people just don't know or care and want it gone.

Some guy had a Japanese Saturn listed in his ad and just kept re-posting it and never responded to my emails. I finally some how got a hold of him and he says he never got any of my other emails. So I think some times they are real and worth going for, some people will sell to the first guy only. Some may not have gotten your email.

Damn you guys and your telling me stuff. Went to GS today and got a new Tatsunoko Arcade Stick for $20. It's pretty sweet. Just wondering; does anyone have the Hori stick for Wii, and if so, how is it?

I quite like Gamexplosion. You're right that some of the prices are out there, but I've seen much worse around town (The last time I went to Game Force Arvada they had some common nes games for $30 bucks and up. Insanity). And as you said, good selection too, though I've only been to the one in Broomfield.

There's a skinny guy working there who's very friendly. He'll talk your ear off if you're willing to listen, but he's really cool. Sometimes I'll go in there, decide not to buy anything, and end up rapping with him for 20 minutes. :lol:

Not as bad as Game Force, for sure! I'm pretty insular and reserved though; I try to avoid talking to clerks unless I have to. Mostly because, like when I went to Gamestop today and asked to look inside all their used PS2 boxes, I get the stinkeye every time I do speak up. :lol:
