Re: Video Game "Finds of the Day"

I was at a used game store and I saw the guy working there put down a copy of Final Fantasy Tactics on the table that had a sticky note that said $5. I asked him if that was the price and he said yes. The case and instructions were in perfect shape and the game only had a few small scratches on the disc. Woot! That wasn't on the market for long. 8)

Well I just got Mega Bomberman complete in box for £3.50! :D

It was £5.50, but the guy was kind enough to give me £2 back as it took over 2 weeks to get here. (Royal Mails' fault. Its real odd since I've ordered loads of stuff thats arrived lighting quick!)

I also picked up 2 DS games for £15.

Freshly Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland and Rhythm Paradise (Heaven).
Good stuff.

not to be a jerk, but is that a bit on the pricey side?

It does have the sight. I would never expect a pawn shop Super scope to come with the sight.

Not too much today, but did find a couple of nice things. Got Front Mission 3 today for $5 at a shop at the flea market. Also picked up Tomb Rider Chronicles for $3 at HQ. And at another thrift store I found a Sega Genisis with hookups, 3 controllers (2 with cords, 1 wireless), and three games: Sonic (CIB), Sonic Spinball (CIB), and Lotus II (boxed) for $20. Not the best deal, admittedly, but better than the bare-bones system+controller deal that the stores around here would offer me. All in all, a nice day. :D

Pop the viewing part of the sight off, flip it other way around so the rubber cup is facing you and it's perfect. Also, $15 is great for a SuperScope. These days you would expect to pay about $15-$30 plus shipping for one online in that shape. Super Smash Bros has brought it back into the limelight just like internet memes did to the PowerGlove.

Oh, and sanitize the viewing piece on the sight. You don't want to inadvertently get pink eye or some infection!

Never mention the Scope and the Power Glove in the same sentence again!! :evil:

:lol:

I love my Super Scope! A battery killer, sure, but the few games it was made for are awesome! Don't overlook Battleclash or Metal Combat: Falcon's Revenge (Battleclash 2). Yoshi's Safari is also a neat little departure from the Mario series..
