Thank you for the welcome!

I had taken a step back for a while in terms of actively seeking out older games, but recently I caught the bug again. I'm not planning to complete full collections or anything, but I'm going to pick up my game hunting a little more now.

Stopped into a local game store yesterday and this was buried under a pile of junk behind the counter:

$14.99 :mrgreen:

It needs a little TLC, though. The plate on top is rusting under the label. Going to try to sand it down and repaint it or replace it all-together with plexi. The internals and bottom plate are fine. The stick and buttons function like new.

I assume your avatar feels slightly threatened around mine. That's to be expected. :)

I can't tell at the moment, as I cannot see your avatar on this page.

Edit: Nevermind, it's visible now.

Best girlfriend ever, gave me Zelda: Collector's Edition for the Gamecube. It's only missing the manual and the disc needs a bit of cleaning but otherwise, best day ever so far.
Collects promo gaming stuff, certain import games, hockey memorabilia, and other oddball things. (sig and avy under construction)

Sounds like a keeper. Don't let the other guys know she did that or they may try to steal her.

If it makes you feel better, every time someone announces they found something cool in their Target clearance I never even see those games there. :P

I did get Protoype for PC cheap a while back though.

Let me know if you guys have specific requests. I routinely grab top tier stuff from Target when games are clearanced to the max, e.g. Sin and Punishment @ $12. I'd say 30% of my monthly gaming dollars go towards Target clearances. Getting in on last sticker clearances is really a matter of availability, and how often the dept. price leader applies discounts. Some stores take the better part of 2-3 months to get down to 70% off (provided they last that long), others take about 2 weeks, it really just depends on your local Target.

Also, it probably helps that I stop at Target 2-3 times a week on the way home from work :lol:
