Re: Video Game "Look what I found"

This is WCLEM's wife....His daughter and I hit our first garage sale this year and scored big! This guy was moving his girlfriend into his house and had to get rid of some stuff (where have I heard that before??). He had a box of games and a stack of VHS tapes.

The games were Gamecube, Playstation, and Playstation 2. We got 87 games (6 Gamecube, 15 Playstation and 65 Playstation 2 games and 1 code disc) and 33 Pokemon VHS tapes for only...You ready for this?.....$40!!

The big titles in the bunch were Zelda WindWaker, Dark Cloud, Star Wars Battlefront 1 & 2. It was a great find, coming off the heals of finding a boxed Mega Man 6 at the Goodwill for only $2! It looks like it is going to be a fun summer! :) :) We also scored a few at the local Xchange....Last pic below...

I forgot...

Game World - Bloomington, IN

- Halo Edition Xbox (Console Only) - $10

The console had been opened they said they tested it and it worked. I said I didn't care I just wanted it because it was green.

Alright, this may take a little while, but I've been busy these last 2 days; this is what I got from Goodwills, flea markets, and yard sales these past 2 days.

This was all stuff from Goodwill. ↑

Total expenditure - $183

I also got these off a mutual acquaintance for $5 a pop.

This I actually got at a semi-local retro shop, but it's so damn awesome, I wanted to show it off.

Now I finally have a good pad to play fighters on DC.

While I have nothing but positive thoughts towards those who find awesome deals in this amazing thread, I confess that sometimes I get so jealous I want to just punch the balls clean off of myself.

Right there with you.

@Foxhound: did you get a Famicom adapter in any of those?

I applaud you all with your awesome finds!

@ garrett: You did good with those saturn games. Pretty much every saturn game you can get, the cheaper the better. Even with the beat up boxes 2 and 3 bucks is a steal.

@foxhound: congrats on the ascii pad. I own one too, but its pretty beat up. I got mine for about 4 bucks some time ago. But yours is pristine and with some free goodies. I like the ps1 rpgs you got there.

tis the spring season for deals!
